LAist once saw someone do a karaoke rendition of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" that involved a blow-up guitar; particularly considering that the act took place in a coffee house, it was an impressive show. LAist is willing to concede, however, that tonight's actual Cheap Trick show at the Canyon Club will probably top it. Doors open at 6:00 PM for dinner reservations; the show starts at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $42.50.

In film, the Silver Lake Film Festival continues this week at the ArcLight. Click here for daily schedules and event information.

At the New Beverly Cinema it's a Charles Bukowski kind of evening, with the amazing documentary Bukowski: Born Into This at 7:30 PM, followed by Mickey Rourke as Buk in the big-screen adaptation Barfly.

Celebrate Banned Books Week tonight at 7:00 PM when S.E. Hinton signs her new book, Hawkes Harbor, at Dutton's in Brentwood. (LAist wonders if we could sneak in a copy of The Outsiders for her to sign...)
