Llama Lasagne’s Ladies Night • Oct. 29
Local band Llama Lasagne — a conglomeration of musicians from The Mary Jane Jones, Alchemystics, and more — is hosting a Ladies Night event at the Depot at Union Station in Northampton. A portion of Ladies Night ticket sales will go toward a good cause — Safe Passage, in this case, which is a local organization devoted to helping women suffering from domestic violence. “This one’s all about the Ladies!” reads the band’s event description, which also encourages men attending to dress in drag. The fluid band’s musical style is, you guessed it — fluid — but it’s sure to be a good dance party!

Drag Brunch Hors and Friends • Sunday
Bacon, pancakes, roast beef, chocolate, drinks before noon — what could make brunch better? Hors, of course, and Friends.

Queen, Cherry Poppins, and Alice Aensland, with your host Hors and music from DJ Dreadhead. Bring $1s to tip the entertainers. Brunch and a show is $20, doors open at 11:45 a.m., Oct. 25.
Metamorphoses • Oct. 23-31
Mary Zimmerman’s iconic 1996 theater show, adapted from the classic Ovid poem, brings some of Greek myth’s most captivating and surreal stories to life. The play blends comedy, classic tragedy, and drama into a series of vignettes, presented around — and inside — a large pool of water. For five nights this month, the Smith College Department of Theatre stages a new production of Metamorphoses at Theatre 14 in Northampton. Tickets are $10 to the general public and free for Smith students.
