Unlike those highly exclusive, snotty, popular-kids-only PJ parties in middle school, everyone is invited to The Pajama Men's night of flannel-clad hilariousness. You do need to have $15 for a ticket (or $12 for students and seniors), your own ride to the Stove (114 Morningside NE) by 9 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 16, and you can't be a loser (just kidding ... but not really). Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez will be there—in full pajama regalia—to entertain you with their quick wit and schizophrenic character changes along with a special, unnamed musical friend. This is a one-night-only thing, so be there or risk being laughed at Monday morning by your possibly more popular coworkers. To make reservations, call 301-4892.

The Tricklockers are back from touring the universe and ready to show Albuquerque theater-lovers some new, original work. Belladonna is a rock 'n' roll fairy tale of epic proportions, complete with a merciless dictator, a naive young girl who can only speak in rock lyrics from the ’80s and true love. The show opens at UNM's Theater X on Friday, Nov. 16, and runs through Dec. 2 with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for seniors and $10 for students with rush tickets available every night for $5. For tickets, call 925-5858. For more info, visit www.tricklock.com.
