Gusto's Things to Do: May 1

Minus the Bear with Coathangers

8 p.m. in Town Ballroom (681 Main St.). Tickets are $25 in advance, $29 at the door.

This Seattle-born indie rock outfit released "Planet of Ice" in 2007, marking a significant expansion of their already adventurous sound with the addition of keyboardist Alex Rose to the ranks.

Now, the band has launched a tour to celebrate the album's 10th anniversary, and the jaunt includes this stop at the Town Ballroom. Minus the Bear will perform "Planet of Ice" in its entirety, as well as select cuts from other albums, including last year's excellent "Voids."

"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" by Buffalo Film Seminars

7 p.m. at Dipson Amherst Theatre (3500 Main St.). Tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for students and $6.50 for seniors.

If you haven’t seen “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” here’s your chance - if just to see the award-winning performances of Frances McDormand, who won the Oscar for "Best Actress," and Sam Rockwell, who grabbed the same hardware for "Best Supporting Actor." The film was nominated for five more Oscars, too.

Stick around for the post-film discussion, led by hosts Diane Christian and Bruce Jackson, of Martin McDonagh's production.
