Lanford Wilson's <i>Fifth of July</i> at Aurora Theatre Company
It’s 1977 and Ken Talley has retreated to his family’s farmhouse in Missouri after losing the use of his legs in Vietnam. Family and friends from his radical UC Berkeley days gather to pull Ken back from the brink and to decide the fate of the Talley legacy. A heartfelt yet often hilarious portrait of the Woodstock generation at the precise moment they realize the fireworks ended yesterday.

Turnt Thursdays

Thursdays, 9 p.m.
Turnt Thursdays
O, wayward partygoer, how inscrutable nightlife lingo can be. Consider “turnt.” Is it desirable? Would you wish turnt upon a child? Well, only as much as you would crunk or hyphy, but never mind — parenting and partying advice don’t mix. Berkeley Underground (2284 Shattuck Ave.), the recently reinvigorated dance club, demonstrates turnt regularly, but especially on Turnt Thursdays. And really, turnt is just code for copious input of the sensory and chemical varieties, handled respectively by DJ Matt Haze and the club’s bottle service. So then, turnt is simple, but it’s much more fun to experience than to talk about. The same goes for “plurnt,” but that’s the following week. free, $5 after 11

Lyrics and Dirges

Third Wednesday of every month, 7:30 p.m.
510-649-1320
Lyrics and Dirges
has been bringing a hand-picked selection of prominent and emerging writers to Pegasus Books Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on the third Wednesday of every month. Hosted and curated by Rad Dad zine editor Tomas Moniz and Berkeley Poetry Festival organizers Sharon Coleman and MK Chavez, the series aims to provide a picture of the diverse Bay Area literary landscape by gathering different types of writers on the same stage. “We’ve paired slam poets with writers of erotic memoir; we’ve highlighted writers published by mainstream presses, hard core zinesters who still staple each issue, comics artists, and playwrights,” Moniz wrote in an email. For its fourth anniversary edition, the series is hosting authors Virgie Tovar, Daniel Riddle Rodriguez, Matthew Zapruder, and Aimee Suzara. Though Lyrics and Dirges’ lineup is always eclectic, Tovar promises an especially memorable performance. Author of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion, Virgie Tovar travels the country preaching the motto “Lose Hate Not Weight,” and serving up refreshingly raw lectures and readings concerning body politics, sex, and identity. She fits the bill for Lyrics and Dirges nicely, which also aims to represent socially engaged writers who share perspectives that are relevant to their communities. free
