What You're Doing Tonight: Nov. 20



    Be the Toast of the Breeders’ Cup
    Amy T. Zielinski
    Nellie McKay brings her old-school stylings to Pomona, on Thursday, November 20.

    JAZZY RAP IN POMONA: Nellie McKay's special brand of pop standards -- funky yet old-timey and sultry-sweet -- cheers us on a rainy Sunday. The piano prodigy makes a rare West Coast appearance at Cal Poly. Okay, maybe not that rare, but we'd love to see her out in SoCal more. Thursday, November 20. 8PM. $20. Cal Poly Pomona Music Recital Hall, 3801 W. Temple Avenue, Pomona. 909-869-3554

    BEAUTIFUL SYNTHESIZER MAGIC: The Sounds, hailing from Sweden, craft catchy, keyboard-y hooks and '80s-flecked goodies; the songs, which take older fans straight back to '84 (and fly new fans there for the first time) are loads of fun, and Maja Ivarsson has a voice. Thursday, November 20, 8PM. $24. Hollywood Palladium,  6215 W Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. 323-962-7600

    FINAL NIGHT: If you've seen the trailer with Jean-Claude Van Damme, you probably turned to the stranger sitting next to you and asked, "is that Jean-Claude Van Damme in a movie about Jean-Claude Van Damme?" And the answer? Indeed it is; "JCVD" is the title, and it screens for one more night at The Nuart. Thursday, November 20, 5PM, 7:30PM and 10PM. $10.50 general. 11272 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles. 310-281-8223
