1. Vampires of any kind are bad enough. But something about sexy sorority chicks sporting fangs and the rolled up jeans and materialism of the 1980s is especially frightening. Assuming an undead girl never sucked on you, all your bad hook-ups will pale in comparison to the ice-cold hotties in Sorority House of the Dead, now playing on the Living Room stage at 1818 McGee.
2. See how sustainable you could be. Get ideas about eco-friendly home improvements, earth-loving products and more during the Green Scene Sustainability Show in Brookside at Border Star Montessori from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
3. Throw up a rockfist and some moolah for women. The second annual Rock Out Reach Out brings a bunch of local bands to the Conspiracy Room on Saturday and lets audience members decide what non-profit organization they want a portion of their cover charge to benefit. This year, all of the charities represent women's issues. Bonus: The musical acts of the night, such as Oriole Post and Sara Swenson, include women who rock.
4. Glimpse the fine art of 50+ Lawrence artists, who are opening their homes, private and shared work spaces for the Lawrence ArtWalk on Saturday and Sunday. Stick around Massachusetts Street on Saturday for Death Becomes Hair, an 8 p.m. masquerade ball and fashion show, at the Eldridge Hotel.
5. A suburban hotel may not be the most obvious hangout for superheros. And maybe it's a perfect hangout for exactly that reason. Either way, the likes of Superman, Iron Man and all sorts of graphic heroes and villains shall be found among the pages for sale and perusal at the Kansas City Comic Book Convention, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the DoubleTree Hotel at 10100 College Boulevard.
