Hot Rod Hop
Route 66 has always been synonymous with the culture of cars, and today, the Mother Road gets its vintage groove back with a hefty helping of Rat Fink, rockabilly and pinups during the Hot Rod Hop. Hit up a free classic car show on Central between Fourth and Fifth Streets from 3 to 6 p.m. Afterward, head to the KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW) for a screening of Robert Mitchum's 1958 carsploitation classic Thunder Road. After the 7 p.m. film, watch retro-style performances by Burque Burlesque featuring special guest Miss Orchid Mei from Colorado. Tickets are $10 for the film and performance. If you have anything left in the tank, the Alibi will host a Rockabilly Blowout at the Launchpad (618 Central SW) beginning at 8:30 p.m. featuring the music of The Hi Lo Tones, Cowboys and Indian, the .357's, Jakob Insane, and DJ Lucky. Tickets are $5 at holdmyticket.com.
