Kingsville
8 p.m. at Stage Left Theatre; $22
A locked-and-loaded speculative drama, playwright Andrew Hinderaker's "Kingsville" puts a piece of conservative rhetoric to the test of imagination: What if the solution to guns in schools was more guns in schools? Tensely performed and smoothly executed, director Vance Smith's production brings it down to a contest of masculinity.

Bonobo, Thunderball
9 p.m. at Metro; $16-$22
With the release of his fourth studio album, Simon Green (aka Bonobo) has taken a much-needed step away from his roots in the downtempo scene. Songstress Andreya Triana steps in where Bajka left off, and the result is an undeniable display of musical synergy. For Bonobo's show at the Metro, you can expect both Triana as well as a live band, which ought to give fans the full breadth of what Green is capable of.

Bumps, Bruises and Bedtime Stories
7 p.m. at Zanies; $20
Talk hockey with former NHL goons Stu Grimson, Jim McKenzie and Reid Simpson. Harry Teinowitz of ESPN Radio hosts.
