Today and tomorrow are the last days to catch the year-ending show, more after the jump in this weekend arts agenda.
The Plaza Theatre will be showing the 1979 hippie film Hair by Milos Forman tonight at 4:30 and 7:05 p.m. The film, which is an adaptation of a Broadway hit with the same name, is centered around a young draftee about to enter the Vietnam war. On the way to register himself, the young man encounters a group of long-haired hippies who show him another way of thinking. The film follows the band of hippies as they attempt to 'free' their new friend from the chains of serving in the army.

The Clark Hodges Quintet will be serenading the crowd at Studio 281 with smooth jazz on Saturday night at 9 p.m. There's a $10 dollar cover to get in, but the sounds of the evening should make that expense well worth it.
