If you’re going to try to support yourself as a juggler, you’d better be the best. Apparently, Mark Nizer is. Whether he’s keeping
five ping-pong balls aloft using only his mouth, or juggling a
burning propane tank with a running electric carving knife and a 16-pound bowling ball, it’s guaranteed that the audience will never look at ordinary objects the same way again. Saturday, April 22, at the Paramount.
$13-22, 7:30pm. 215 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 979-1333.


In 2006 alone, local goth/punk heroes Bella Morte have toured with MSI and KMFDM, played the Warped Tour, headlined DragonCon, the Drop Dead 3 Festival, The Black Sun Festival and Gothstock. What’s next? Well, they’re stealing in (under cover of night, we presume) to grace the Satellite Ballroom with their otherworldly presence on Saturday, April 22. Come out and give Andy, Gopal, Tony, Micah and Jordan the old slam-dance welcome back. $8, 9pm. 1427 University Ave. 977-3697.

Even those who don’t know much about opera probably know the “Toreador’s Song” from Georges Bizet’s Carmen. If you’d like to know more about the fiery gypsy gal, the jealous soldier Don José, and all of their attendant bullfighters and smugglers, come to Opera Viva’s inaugural production to
see how the whole affair plays out. Directed by Anne Holt. Friday, April 21 and Sunday, April 23, at the Newcomb Hall courtyard. Free, 8pm. 924-8808.

Gear up for the Cavs
football season at the Spring Football Festival at Scott Stadium, Saturday, April 22. Scarf kettle corn,
Dip-N-Dots, shaved ice and other assorted stadium concessions. Try on uniforms, or test your mettle on an official NFL obstacle course. Hear live music by the UVA Band and Kendra and the Kingpins. And who knows—
maybe you’ll even snag an autograph from former Cav greats Alvin Peraman or Heath Miller. Free, 1:30pm. Scott Stadium.
