VARIETY*
Tonight’s the third installment of 826LA’s “Tiny Vaudeville” series. Created by the peeps behind the nonprofit literacy and writing organization, the show prides itself on being the smallest vaudeville show in Los Angeles, running approximately ninety minutes and featuring diverse acts, including a name actor reading original writing by students of 826LA. Tonight’s guests include Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show; Tom Goes to the Mayor; Breaking Bad); Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up; the forthcoming Paper Hearts); Martin Starr (Freaks & Geeks; Knocked Up; Adventureland); musical comedy with Claybo & Downs; battle-of-the-bands winner The Pity Party; an orchestra led by Dan Bern and a few more surprises. Tickets are $12 at the Echoplex. The show begins at 8 pm.

CLAZZICAL
Clazzical Notes, a program sponsored by The Pasadena Symphony, pairs music and discussion among renowned musicians to bridge the gap that exists between the jazz and classical music communities. Can’t we all just get along? Tonight’s “Cool & Classic” installment will feature Amy Bowers and Nolan Shaheed and will be held at the J.I. Lounge at Paseo Colorado in Pasadena. The event is free and open to the public.

FILM
March is member appreciation month at the ArcLight, so that means that members got to pick the top films they wanted to see on the big screen. Up tonight is 2001: A Space Odyssey at 8 pm at the ArcLight Hollywood.
