MUSIC: Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie are both artists who are visual in the extreme and revel in the filth of humanity, but it's Zombie's keen B-Movie, cinematic sensibility that truly sends me. But he doesn't overdo it, rocking on stage and getting his slasherya-yas out on the screen. He's earned seven Grammy nominations this way and has created nouveau classics like "The Devil's Rejects," "House of 1000 Corpses," and a cool remake of "Halloween." While the paint dries on his current movie "The Lords of Salem," Zombie returns to the stage to rock and horrify for the first time since his co-headline tour with Slayer last summer. This time he's with Manson for the "Twins of Evil" Tour. Head on down to the Main Street Armory (900 E. Main St., rochestermainstreetarmory.com, $47.50-$55) tonight at 7:30 p.m. and check it out yourself.

THEATER: What happens when Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis discuss God, love, sex, music, and the meaning of life on the eve of England's entry into WWII? Find out at "Freud's Last Session," staged at Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Blvd) tonight through November 11. The show goes on tonight at 7:30 p.m., and tickets start at $25. For more info, call 232-4382 or visit gevatheatre.org.

MUSIC: I can't say I've ever been to Nashville, but it's one of the music capitols of the world, so I suppose at least a few good musicians have come from there. You go can go ahead and add rockers Kink Ador to that list, and you won't even have to travel that far south to see them. The band will be playing tonight at Boulder Coffee (100 Alexander St., bouldercoffeeco.com) at 8 p.m. And it's free, so what reason do you have to say no?

SPECIAL EVENT: Election Day will soon be upon us soon -- do you know what the issues are? Join the Meet the Candidates Forum held tonight at First Genesis Baptist Church (292 Hudson Ave.), 6-8:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend. More info: 454-7418.

ART: Check out "The Soulless Machine" today, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., at RIT's SPAS Gallery (Gannett Hall, Building 7B, 3rd Floor, RIT campus). The MFA Thesis Exhibition by Nathan Lomas features photography, video, sculpture, and audio works concerning relationships between humans and technology. Admission is free, and the show remains up through October 19. For more information, visit rit.edu.

MUSIC: Geronimo! No, I'm not about to dive into a pool or do another daring stunt, Geronimo! Is the name of Chicago-based rock band that will be hitting up the Bug Jar (219 Monroe Ave., bugjar.com, $6-$8) tonight at 9 p.m.. You'll also be treated to local openers Anchorage Nebraska, Upstate, and Chip's Challenge, so get down early and check out everyone on the bill.

SPECIAL EVENT: Brush up on your geology, or just appreciate some jewels at the Mineral Monthly Meeting, held tonight, 7:30-9:30 p.m., at Brighton Town Hall (2300 Elmwood Ave.). David Joyce will speak about his "Collecting Trip at the British Columbia Engineer Mine," and there will be refreshments and door prizes. Attendance is free.
