Rocking to break the mold and to beat the band

If you believe the best rock bands are those that defy easy categorization, then you won't want to miss tonight's double bill at the 8x10. First up is Inclined, a jazzy, adventurous trio whose sound recalls both the Police and the Red Hot Chili Peppers without actually imitating either. Closing out the evening is Nudeswirl, a quartet whose twin-guitar attack is heavy enough to bang heads to, but whose rhythmic and melodic approach is more in line with acts like Urge Overkill and the Stone Temple Pilots. Tickets are $5, and the music begins at 9 p.m. The 8x10 is located at 8-10 E. Cross St. Call (410) 625-2000. Amalie Rothschild has been an artist and otherwise active in the arts in Baltimore since the 1940s. "Geometric Progressions 1948-1993" is the title of a retrospective of her work at Nye Gomez Gallery. The artist describes her process as employing two approaches, "material to idea," in which she creates the work with found materials, and "idea to material," in which she starts with a drawing and then assembles the material to create the pieces.

Works by Thomas Van Damme and John Carvalho are also on display at Nye Gomez, 836 Leadenhall St., through Sept. 11. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Call (410) 752-2080.

John Dorsey Willy Russell's heartwarming play "Shirley Valentine" opens Tuesday at Totem Pole Playhouse in Fayetteville, Pa., where it will be the final production of the season. Baltimorean Carl Schurr, the theater's producing artistic director, directs Totem Pole favorite Jayne Houdyshell in this touching one-woman show about a bored British housewife who broadens her horizons during a vacation in Greece.

Curtain times are Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8:30 p.m., with matinees Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through Aug. 29. Tickets are $11 to $17. Totem Pole is located at 9555 Golf Course Road in Caledonia State Park, 14

miles west of Gettysburg. Call (717) 352-2164.
