It would be well worth your time—despite the rain and Nile-during-flood-season conditions—to get to the Troubadour tonight and see the Drive By Truckers (also known as the warrior poets of rock 'n' roll) performing with Centro-matic and Runner & The Thermodynamics. Doors open at 8:00 PM and tickets are $15.00.

At 7:00 PM tonight, head for UCLA's Hammer Museum for a reading by award-winning poet J.D. McClatchy, whose most recent book—Hazmat—was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award.
