You kind of have to be in the right mood to see Har Mar Superstar. That being said, if you're feeling up for ass-exposing chaps, the musical accompaniment of a boombox, and the distinct possibility of grinding with a short, sweaty, balding man in Underoos, then you are most definitely in business. Seriously. Not sure this is your bag? Re-watch the dance-off scene in Starsky and Hutch, when Dancin' Rick, a.k.a. Har Mar, essentially plays himself—best part of the movie. Still uneasy? Take your visiting friend, don't tell her anything, and laugh your ass off as she watches the night unfold. Don't fool yourself: It's no Sigur Rós. The shows are kind of a spectacle. The man named himself after a Roseville strip mall, after all. If you can shed your sour winter face for just one night, let it be this one. With Nonplus and Red Pens. $12. 21+. 9 p.m. 629 Cedar Ave., Minneapolis; 612.333.7499.
