1. Heavy metal and Baghdad go together like, wait, what? Really, it's true. The critically acclaimed 2007 "rockumentary" Heavy Metal In Baghdad follows Acrassicauda, a heavy metal band from Iraq, as the band preservers through the Iraq war, which is happening all around them. Presented by Veterans for Peace and to be shown at 7 p.m. inside King's Books in Tacoma, according to promotions the story of Acrassicauda "echoes the unspoken hopes of an entire generation of young Iraqis."

2. The Washington State History Museum's Arts and Crafts Movement in the Pacific Northwest exhibit showcases significant buildings and interiors, furniture, glass, metalwork, ceramics, textiles, fine art, graphics, book art and photographs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

3. The Tacoma Concert Band performs a pop concert at 6:30 p.m. in DuPont's Clocktower Park.

4. Hell's Kitchen serves $2 tacos, $2 beers and $2 wells every Tuesday under the title Tightwad Tuesday.  That is common knowledge. Tonight at 7:30 p.m. the downtown rock club will add the bands Highlight Bomb, Big Quinn & The Broken Hearts and Chaos Revolution Theory to the wad. Tomorrow will, no doubt, be Wrecked Wednesday.

5. Since forming in 2006, YellowFever has released several EPs of deceptively catchy, intelligently minimalist indie-pop that NPR's Carrie Bowenstein once described as "haunted house surf music," an odd, but somehow accurate label that has followed the band from review to review. Yet despite comparisons to Stereolab and favorable reviews of their self-titled debut LP, the duo's quiet demeanor had kept them largely under the radar ... until guitarist Jennifer Moore's accidental jihad. Read up on Moore's incredible story before their 8 p.m. show at Northern in downtown Olympia.
