2. GeoFest

Feb. 19-21, times vary. This rocks. I'm not funny. This will be fun. Be there.

Indiana State Museum, 650 W. Washington St., prices vary

3. Drinks, Donuts and Dancing

Feb. 20, 8:30 p.m. New party planners Deck’d Out want to lure you to the Hi-FI with donuts and beer to introduce their new social-event-plus-charity-fundraiser org. And it's going to work because these are easily three of my favorite things on planet Earth.

The Hi-Fi, 1043 Virginia Ave Suite 4, FREE

4. Papadosio

Feb. 19, 10 p.m. Dosio jumps from jam to folk to dance, and it all works perfectly. They've got a MASSIVE production unit for this show, hence the room change into the Egyptian. Local support from Kaleidoscope Jukebox and yes, this is a chance to be an extra in an upcoming movie.

Egyptian Room at Old National Centre, 502 N. New Jersey St., prices vary

5. A Romance in Four Courses

Feb. 21, 6 p.m. NoExit Performance's award-winning director and choreographer Tommy Lewey collaborates with the chefs at Mesh on Mass Ave and musician Brian Grimm to create a unique dinner-theater experience.

6. Bone Thugs N Harmony

Feb. 20, 9 p.m. We're starting to get a little confused with all these stops of Bone Jugs — but this is the rap group, not the fried country darlins'. They're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the group’s massive Billboard hit, “Tha Crossroads”, which won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance in 1997 — damn that's been a minute.

The Vogue, 6259 N. College Ave., $30 advance, $35 doors, 21+

7. Transaction Boundaries

Through March 19, times vary. This exhibition uses the reopening of relations between the U.S and Cuba as a lens to explore — through video, photography, and sculpture — issues of economic justice and religion amongst the white-sand beaches and rolling mountains.

IMOCA, 1043 Virginia Ave., Ste. 5, FREE

8. Chives Release Show

Feb. 19, 9 p.m. Chives is 100 percent one of our favorite local bands. Let them be yours at this 7-inch release show, and grab some sweet merch ‘cuz they’ve got limited copies of Drip 7-inch on-hand at the show. BIGCOLOUR and MK-II support.

General Public Collective, 1060 Virginia Ave, $5 or pay what you want

9. Winter Nights: Boyz N the Hood

Feb. 19, 8 p.m. I know it doesn't feel like winter but there is a zero percent chance I'm going to complain about it. Anyways, the IMA is hosting this rad film as part of their Winter Nights series — I couldn't convince them to move it outside. Enjoy it from the comfy Toby seats instead.

Tobias (Toby) Theater, Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, $6 Members / $12 Public

10. Sarah Kirkland Snider, Caroline Shaw, Shara Worden

Feb. 19, 8 p.m. These three highly celebrated women, representing the contemporary classical genre, perform two pieces: one composed by Snider with Worden on lead vocals and another composed and performed by Shaw. Both pieces will be performed with the wonderful Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

Hilbert Circle Theatre, 45 Monument Circle, prices vary
