THRILLS

A Roche is a Roche is a Roche: No performers on earth even faintly resemble The Roches, a New Jersey sister act well-versed in eccentric lyrics and the kind of seamless harmonization only possible among siblings. Ridiculously cute but never cloying, Maggie, Terre and Suzzy will charm your socks off when they appear on public radio's E-Town, taping tonight at 7 at the Boulder Theater, 2030 14th St., Boulder. Actor-turned-singer Ronny Cox, who's been seen on screen in everything from Deliverance to Robocop, also guests; for tickets, $7 in advance ($9 day of show), call the Boulder Theater box office at 786-7030.

Monday June 12 Psychotic reactions: A bona fide star will be in our midst tonight when Janet Leigh, whose famous shocker of a Psycho shower scene is imprinted forever in moviegoers' nightmares, stops at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th St., to autograph copies of her book Psycho: Behind the Scenes of the Classic Thriller. Leigh will discuss the memoir and its people--including the fearsome and larger-than-life film director Alfred Hitchcock--at 7:30; get your number for a place in line at 6:30. For information call 436-1070.

Tuesday June 13 Top of the Pops: The book may never close completely on artist, filmmaker, cultural pied piper and all-around Manhattan character Andy Warhol, whose legacy of brightly colored soup cans and Marilyn Monroe portraits married commercial and fine art in a blatantly controversial yet influential way. But wherever you stand on the pop icon's contributions, Works by Warhol: Cowboys, Indians and More, a new show of silkscreen prints and other works at the Longmont Museum, 375 Kimbark St., Longmont, is worth a gander. Images in the Cowboys and Indians Series range from John Wayne to Geronimo and will cohabit in the gallery with lurid portraits of Mick Jagger and Mickey Mouse, as well as a Warholian take on Buzz Aldrin's moonwalk. A reception (admission to which is a can of soup) will be held next Friday evening, but the exhibit opens today and can be seen through July 22. In addition, related "Pop Goes the Easel" summer arts programs begin June 19, and a lecture by Warhol scholar John Powers will be given on June 29. Call 572-1719, ext. 8374, for information or to register for events.
