FEARLESS FRIENDS TOUR: A bevy of bands'll be playing HOB on Sunset Strip, including The American Secrets, a group that came to fame by winning a nationwide search via freecreditscore.com (one of our favorite terms, "nationwide search"). Ohhh, and the band, which just changed its name from The Victorious Secrets, got to be in a national spot, too. Another favorite term, "national spot." 7 p.m.
BUDDY VALASTRO LIVE! If you're a fan of the TLC show "Cake Boss," you're likely heading for the Orpheum tonight, to have a bite of "The Bakin' with the Boss" tour. A live demo is promised, and some Q&A-ing with the audience, too. But are you ready to possibly go on-stage? Hope your frosting skills are up to snuff. 8 p.m.
LOS ANGELES FILMS: Well, truth: "The Terminator" and "Car Wash" are two entirely different films, but they do share our city as a setting (LA is quite memorably depicted in both movies, actually). The apocalyptic, machine-menacer is at The Egyptian, while the music-filled "Car Wash" rolls on at the New Bev.
