Prog rockers Coheed and Cambria like to do things different, and their brand-new release, The Afterman: Ascension, is not only a concept album, but the first half of a double album. (Got that?)

We like this art show for the name alone: Holi-Day of the Dead. We love it because it benefits the art department of the low-income Emerson High School. Starting at 7 p.m. Saturday and running daily through Nov. 23, Holi-Day features works inspired by various big days of the calendar. See ’em at Six One Six Studios, 616 N.W. Fifth.

Did you think I’d crumble? Did you think I’d lay down and die? If those defiant lyrics get your feet a-tapping, cruise on down to the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N.

At 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jack Everly will conduct such ’70s smashes as “I Will Survive,” “American Pie” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Tickets are $25- $52.

Clue it


OKG7 things to do

When the board game Clue became a movie in 1985, it hit theaters with one of three endings. With its musical adaptation, The Stage Door, 601 Oak in Yukon, puts that to shame with 216 possible solutions! Audience members will be given cards repping the game’s characters, weapons and rooms. Get a Clue at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday, through Nov. 11. Tickets are $9-$12. Call 265-1590 or visit stagedooryukon.com.
