Music: You’ve cast your votes. You’ve seen them perform. Now come on out to see who Lovin’ Cup Idol’s 2013 (300 Park Point Dr., lovincup.com) winner will be. The red carpet finale takes place tonight, so head on down and see who ultimately takes the crown.
Theater: A woman has gone missing, and her daughter is desperately searching for her. Meanwhile, a historic Cubs and Giants baseball game is happening. Love, baseball, and the devotion that both require will intertwine in “Tinker to Evers to Chance,” a new play by Mat Smart, which will be presented as part of the Plays in Progress spring reading series at the Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Blvd., gevatheatre.org) at 7 p.m. Tickets are free, and can be reserved through gevatheatre.org.
Music: Chris Cohen has done plenty of work with other bands, including Haunted Graffiti and Deerhoof, and has the likes of Pitchfork and Captured Tracks tooting his horn. He finally released his first solo work. The music is firmly mid-tempo and ranges from psychedelic to easy-listening 60’s pop, and is geared toward hanging out on your porch swing listening to cicadas at dusk. Cohen is an easy choice if you like Tame Impala. Opening the show will be locals Light Feelings, which ironically enough seems to deal with the topic of heavy feelings. As long as it doesn’t dissolve into moaning it should be nice. Paxtor will be rounding out the night with noise collages, and Manic Monday will be on hand at 11:30 p.m. so you can get your 80’s fix. The show takes place Monday, March 25, 7:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $8-$12. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
Film: Quick, think of a few of your favorite superheroes. Are they all men? Thought so. Why have female superheroes still not taken over the mainstream? Why do we even equate “heroism” to masculine traits in the first place? These and other super-questions will be explored in “Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Super Heroines,” an independent documentary by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan that examines female superheroes as pop culture icons of women’s empowerment. The film screens at 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre (240 East Ave., thelittle.org), and will be followed by a panel discussion with Barbara LeSavoy, director of the Women and Gender Studies program at SUNY Brockport; Freddi Macek, of the Rochester Labor Council; Carter Soles, a film studies professor at SUNY Brockport; and Alisia Grace Chase, a professor of art history and visual culture at SUNY Brockport. The film and the panel are free. “Wonder Women” is the part of the Little’s Women’s History Month film series. Go to thelittle.org for other upcoming films in the series.
