719 Day Brewfest

For this third-annual festival, you've got your pick of 17 local breweries and distilleries, including faves like Bristol, Red Leg and Lee Spirits. It's a nice reminder that we don't even have to travel outside our area code to partake in the best brews the region has to offer. For atmosphere and maybe a little beer-fueled dancing, enjoy live music by Mark's Midnight Carnival Show and Playing With Smoke, all night long. 5 p.m. for VIPs, 6 p.m. for general admission, Switchbacks Stadium, 6303 Barnes Road, $35-$50, facebook.com/JonEddyProductions.


20 Thursday

Dalya's Other Country

The news may explain the circumstances surrounding the Syrian conflict or the controversy over Donald Trump's travel ban, but there's no substitute for putting a human face on the issues. The film follows a displaced family, trying to reconcile their Muslim values with their American lives, examining what it's like to grow up in two worlds. Bonus: This documentary is brand new, having premiered in late June. If you can't catch it tonight, you can stream it online until the 25th. 7-9 p.m., Tim Gill Center for Public Media, 315 E. Costilla St., free, facebook.com/IFSOC.

21 Friday

Petrograd

Based on a comic book by Philip Gelatt, this adaptation by A. Rhodes serves as an original and exciting tale of espionage, romance and an assassination that changed the course of history. Grigori Rasputin's legacy has survived in a thousand different iterations and modern myths, and this should prove to be an interesting look at his influence and character. This play is co-produced by Cottonwood-based experimental and artistic theater groups COUNTER/Weight Theatre Lab and THEATREdART. Fridays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m., Sundays, 4:30 p.m., through Aug. 6, Cottonwood Center for the Arts, 427 E. Colorado Ave., $5-$15, cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com.
