The RAIN Pours. They look like them and they sound like them and for all the screaming, star-struck teen girls of the '60s, this is the next best thing to seeing The Beatles themselves. RAIN: A Tribute to The Beatles is a quartet of fine musicians covering The Beatles from their beginnings through the psychedelic late '60s and their long-haired, hard-rocking rooftop days. Sing along with your family and friends to Beatles favorites, such as "Let it Be," "Hey Jude," and "Can't Buy Me Love." Not to mention a whole selection of songs usually not presented by The Beatles live. Presented by Celebrity Attractions, RAIN will show in the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 110 E. Second St. For more information, visit tulsapac.com or celebrityattractions.com.

Kicking Off. The Tulsa Talons professional arena football team open its first season in the Arena Football One league with a match-up against the Tampa Bay Storm at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver.

After a year of negotiation to form a new, more economic business model, the Arena Football One League was born, and this weekend brings new looks, action and excitement. The Tulsa Talons have been playing arena football since 2000. The game is at 7pm, and tickets range from $12-87.

The Bunny Hop. Get your fill of Starburst jelly beans and Cadbury Creme Eggs; it's Easter time again! Unfortunately, Easter does not have the arsenal of holiday-appropriate movies that we can tell you to check out to get in the spirit of things (though It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown is always worth a watch).
Go for an Easter egg hunt at your local church, or get an egg-dying kit at the grocery store (or skip the dye step and go straight from hard-boiled to delicious deviled). For local events as well as church services, visit our Events section on page 49.

No "Puff" Here. Released last Friday, How to Train Your Dragon is Dreamworks' latest creation and is playing at Cinemark's IMAX theater. How to Train Your Dragon tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager whose scrawniness and distaste for killing dragons, the main occupation for the Vikings, make him an outcast. Instead of slaying dragons, Hiccup befriends one and begins to show his fellow Vikings the dragons' better side. Plus, what better way to see it than the recent upshot of 3-D animation? For 3-D IMAX, tickets are $12.75 for adults and $10.25 for kids. For show times and more information, visit cinemark.com.
