TONIGHT! 

Broke Hipster Night — an old Seaside staple — is going on at Aclub, featuring the usual appearance by Benjamin Jorgens and also a show with rockers MONUMENTS. 8 pm. $3. Gotta be 21. 

In Browne's Addition, at the Museum of Arts & Culture, the monthly meet-n-greet-n-drink soiree BeGin! continues. Tonight's party features musical talent by My Pinky Has a Name. 6 pm. Free. All-ages. 

Slim Thug, a rapper best known for his contribution to Mike Jones' "Still Tippin" and Gwen Stefani's "Luxurious," brings his Southern-fried hip-hop to Stage54. 7 pm. $25 - $30. Gotta be 18.

Last but not least: The second night of Empyrean's three-night goodbye show series is this evening (read our story all about the venue's closure). Chrisy Riddle, owner for just a couple more days, sent us this updated schedule.

6 pm - Battlesound

6:45 pm - Mon Cheri

7:30 pm - Matthew Winters

8:15 pm - Oil of Angels

9:30 pm - Cyrus Fell Down

10:15 pm - the Globes

11:15 pm - Hallelujah Soul Explosion

Doors open at 5 pm. Get in all night for $10. All-ages.

TOMORROW! 

Perhaps the earliest "show" to ever come across our desks: Tomorrow, the folks at the Baby Bar and Neato Burrito will host the grand opening of Morning After Bakery, which offers some of the most delicious pastries in town. From 9 am to noon, DJ Likes Girls spins all kinds of popular tunes, and you can get breakfast burritos, bloody marys, mimosas... the works. We start every Saturday this way, of course.

Over at the Bing, the unchallenged master of fingerstyle picking, Adrian Legg, plays alongside local artist Janet Johnson. Legg has been praised by other guitar virtuosi, too: Steve Vai, Joe Satriani. Check him out at 8 pm. $17. All-ages. 

We just got word that Joan Jett's show at Northern Quest Casino is sold out (read our story on Jett), but we think hitting up the Knitting Factory for the Cash'd Out show would be a sufficient replacement. The group — which claims to be the next best thing to Johnny Cash himself — performs more than 100 of Cash's songs. Be ready to start two-steppin'. Locals Silver Treason open the show. 8:30 pm. $12. All-ages. 

And break out your hankies because, of course, there's the very last day of Empyrean. The show starts super early Saturday, with doors opening at 3 pm. It's 15 bucks for all day, but look at this line-up: 

4:30 pm - Mark Ward

5 pm - Zack Graham

5:15 pm - Liz Rognes

5:45 pm - Danielle Estelle

6 pm - Josh Hedlund

6:30 pm - Kurt Olson

6:45 pm - Joel Smith

7:15 pm - Madison Whitney

7:45 pm - Cathedral Pearls (Karli Fairbanks)

8:15 pm - Mark Anderson

8:30 pm - Ken Arkind

9 pm - Kevin Long

9:45 pm - Buddy Wakefield

10:15 pm - The Head and the Heart

11:15 pm - The Booze Fighters
