JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS: Surely you've heard that Kristin Stewart of "Twilight" fame is playing the leading lady of hard-driving, clap-your-hands-in-the-air rock 'n roll in an upcoming film. That's big. But Joan Jett is big. Every time we put on our faded Converse we think we are sooo Joanian, but really, we're not, so not, and never will be. She's at Pacific Amphitheatre at 8PM
IDOL TOUR 2009: Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta, Michael Sarver, and Scott MacIntyre join several other past "American Idol" contestants on stage at the annual live show. Hope you have your favorite, and hope they sing your very favorite tune. The tour's only been on the road for a couple of weeks, so you'll be one of the first to see the show. Well, first-ish. It's major. Staples Center, 7PM
THURSDAY NIGHT OUT LOUD! Loads of comedians, including Eric Zeis, Amir Kamyab, Andy Kozel, Rick Glassman, Chris D'Elia, and Max Amini are at the mic and making people laugh for a song. What's a song in this instance? Ten bucks. There's a buffet, bar, and gratis parking involved. All rolled into one. We like. 8:30PM at CAP Studios in Sherman Oaks; look into those tix ahead of time online.
