TUESDAY, NOV. 20, 2012 >>>

1. It's Tuesday and that means The Grand Cinema unleashes another special film as part of its Tuesday Film Series. Today at 2:15 and 6:50 p.m. The Grand will screen Stars In Shorts, a collection of short films featuring famous faces, including Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley, Julia Stiles, and Lily Tomlin.

2. Yea, like you're going to have an arts month and not include one of the longest running open mics in the state. Art at Work Month continues in Tacoma. And the celebration shines a spotlight on the Victory Music Open Mic, which pulls out the microphones from 7-10 p.m. inside the Antique Sandwich Company.

3. A principled lawyer who defends both a black man against trumped-up rape charges and his children against the evils of prejudice in the Depression-era South. Sounds like a read right up the Banned Book Club's alley. The club will discuss To Kill a Mockingbird at 7 p.m. inside King's Books.

4. With a 90-minute set featuring around 20 of Diamond's hits – ranging from his early work for television shows, such as The Monkees ("I'm A Believer") to songs from his movie "The Jazz Singer" – Neil Diamond tribute band The Diamond Experience will rock the Red Wind Casino from 6:30-9:30 p.m.

5. Pretty Old take cues from the delicately driving and melancholy pride of bands like the National as well as the spark and verve of punkier groups like the Weakerthans and Jawbreaker - from whom Pretty Old derived their name. The Seattle three-piece is one that was clearly raised on punk, yet remains comfortable to bust out a sadly shuffling ballad or two. Catch the band at 10 p.m. inside Le Voyeur.
