Suggestions from the Enjoy Bloggers on events and activities to attend this week:

 

What: Funk, rock and more.

When: 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Where: Manny's Sports & Entertainment, 4241 Kari Lane.

Why: Get ready for funk, rock, reggae and dance music from Roster McCabe, a high-energy quintet. And take in the music of More Than Lights, Ted Ness and The Rusty Nails, too.

More Than Lights' "Everywhere We Go" and "Be With You" drew some solid fans for that group's first album, "The Electric Prescription For All your Funky Illz," and it has been working on a new 2012 release.

Cost and information: $10; all ages. 655-7979. 


What: Danielle Egnew returns.

When: Doors open 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, with the show starting at 5 p.m.

Where: Yellowstone Valley Brewing Co.'s Garage Pub, 2123-B First Ave. N.

Why: Talented Danielle Egnew is familiar to Billings audiences as the founder of Pope Jane, an all-female rock band. Colorful and flamboyant, Egnew drew a strong following and will have something new for fans to savor with this show as she goes acoustic.

She now lives and performs in Los Angeles, so this visit will be a treat for those missing her singular style.

Guest artist April June, of Sheridan, Wyo., opens the show, and Egnew plays from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Information: 245-0918; yellowstonevalleybrew.com.


What: "The 39 Steps."

When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Sundays, Feb. 1-4 and 8-11.

Where: Readers Theatre on the sixth floor of the Liberal Arts Building at Montana State University Billings.

Why: MSU Billings students star in the farce adapted from a 1915 novel and Alfred Hitchcock's serious 1935 spy thriller. The play goes for laughs and makes reference to such other Hitchcock smashes as "North by Northwest" and "Vertigo."

The show has a special spin as director Bobbi Kay Kupfner uses five actors in a play first written for four performers. The cast includes Amanda Grubbs, Courtney Keyes, Casey White, Sean Slaugh and Amanda Losness.

Occasionally, the actors have to play multiple characters in the same scene by switching hats.

Cost: $12 for adults and $8 for senior citizens and students.
