Monday To-do: June 28

For someone like me who doesn’t pay a whole lot of attention to soccer outside of the World Cup, the United States team’s loss Saturday pretty much sealed up my bag of interest for the next four years.

To quote @michaelianblack, “Now that the US is out, I just assumed the World Cup was over. Why is TV still showing soccer?”

I could be convinced to stick around a while, though. Anybody got any convincing in them?

Texas indie rockers The Rocketboys are at George’s tonight. They were in town last fall shortly after releasing their first full-length debut album “20,000 Ghosts.” They’ve since picked up a handful of endorsements from the likes of Fender, D’Addario, Paiste and Vitamin Water. If you’re in a band, you’re likley looking at those first three going, “Man, we gotta get us some endorsements!” Otherwise, you’re thinking, “Free electrolytes!” Locals Monster Heart and Kilroy open the show.

If the clouds clear up by sundown, the UA’s University Programs summer outdoor movie series will continue at 9 p.m. on the Old Main lawn. If the rain just can’t stay away, the outdoor movie will become an indoor movie inside the University Theater at the Union. What’s playing? Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island. Get there a little early for some free food and drinks at 8 p.m.

Here’s the list:
