Don’t miss your chance to see Mike, Kevin and Bill of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame playing live in select theaters nationwide as they sling their wisecracking commentary at the cult classic Miami Connection. If you put everything about the '80s in a blender and then ran the results through a translator that only speaks languages from another dimension, what you’d wind up with still wouldn't be half as hilarious, weird and oddly charming as Miami Connection. Featuring the martial arts band Dragon Sound as they take on a group of motorcycle-riding ninjas, this one is impossible to explain but also impossible to forget. $12.50, 7pm, Thur., Santikos Palladium, 17703 I-10 W, (210) 558-1012, fathomevents.com

This hilarious stage show features elements from the classic cult horror films Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness combined into one night of blood-spattering, zany, zombie fun. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons are telling bad jokes... and all to music. The songs in the show are completely off the wall as well. Titles like "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons" and "What the F*atk was That" will have you rolling in your seats, and screaming for more and more blood. You don't need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show. You don't need to be a fan of horror to love this show. You don't even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show. As long as you like having fun... this show is for you. * This show is not for children under 10. $20-$33, 8pm, Fri., Cameo Theatre, 1123 E Commerce, (210) 212-5454, cameocenter.com
