Get to it!


A guide to help make your day

Going out

Warped Tour: It's a power rock explosion with Rancid, AFI, The Ataris, Face to Face, Dropkick Murphys and more taking the stage starting at 1 p.m. today, Riverbend Music Center. $29.50. 562-4949.

A capella sensations: The fun and engaging vocal quartet DaVinci's Notebook, a favorite on the Bob and Tom radio show, performs a mix of pop parodies and irreverent original songs. 8 p.m. today, 20th Century, 3021 Madison Road, Oakley, $12.50-$15. 562-4949.

Latin film: The monthly Latin Film Festival series kicks off with a cocktail hour, comedian Alex Reymundo and a screening of the crossover Hispanic comedy El Matador. 6 p.m. today, Madison Theater, 728 Madison Ave., Covington, $10. (859) 655-4807.

On TV

Critic's pick: TNN is still fighting in court to change its name to Spike TV. Whatever it calls itself, it has a winner with two good adult cartoons - Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon and Stripperella - and one great one. That's Gary the Rat, about a big-time lawyer transformed into a giant rat. Suit and all. Tonight, he orders cheese delivery, ducks the exterminator and defends a tobacco company. Gary the Rat, 10:30 p.m., TNN.

• This one's a likable romantic comedy. George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer play two busy people who meet by accident. One Fine Day, 8 p.m., Channel 9.

The goods

Glowing dogs: And this for people who walk their dogs at night and worry that a car is going to take them out. Or for people who ignore leash laws and let the dog run. An outfit name of Co-leash has a new line of glow-in-the dark collars and leashes. After about 30 minutes exposure to light, they will glow about 12 hours - which means no more tripping over the pup in the dark when you get up for a 3 a.m. potty run. Prices run from $16.99 to $23.99. Order from www.co-leash.com.

Planning ahead

24 hours out: Country-pop legend Glen Campbell belts it out for two nights at the Belterra Casino Resort, 8 p.m. Friday, Switzerland County, Ind. $30-$35. (888) 235-8377.

48 hours out: E. Lynn Harris is at Joseph-Beth to sign and discuss his novels, including the new Love of My Own. 4 p.m. Saturday, Rookwood Pavilion, Madison and Edwards roads, Norwood. 396-8960.
