Up at Fairmont Cemetery (Saturday, free) The adorable film Up will be playing on an outdoor screen in a cemetery. Yes, a cemetery. Bring your family along with chairs and blankets to this event, which includes not just a free movie but free popcorn. It will be so much fun, it's scary!

SexCom at Blush & Blu (Saturday, $5-$10) Don't confuse this one with Comic Con, which is also going on this weekend. SexCom combines sex and comedy -- a close to perfect pairing. Local comedian and sex-ed teacher Debbie Scheer and sexologist Shanna Katz will answer your sexuality questions, with a whole lot of laughs along the way.

Clockette Nerdlesque: A Comic-Striptease at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret (Saturday, $10) Everybody is a little different. Some people are attracted to supermodels and some people fantasize about superheroes. If you fall into the latter category, tonight is your night. The sexy burlesque ladies at Lannie's are putting on the capes and leotards tonight so that they can dance and shimmy them right back off. Even if you don't like superheroes, this should be a sexy good time.

Sara Gillespie w/ Roo & The Howl at Mercury Café (Saturday, $10) Sarah Gillespie is a very talented singer/ songwriter who comes all the way from London, where she has been described as Bob Dylan meets Joni Mitchell. Her streetwise lyrics respond well to her exceptional guitar playing. Take a listen and decide for yourself.

African American Theater Day at Su Teatro (Sunday, free) African-American theater has been a part of Denver culture for decades, but this will mark the first official celebration. The free event includes food, music and special presentations from local theater companies.
