We realize you're probably busy carb-loading after that Yom Kippur workout. But if you're one of the weak who abandoned the cause early, head downtown for Southern California Institute of Architecture's new lecture series, "Make it New." Tonight, the panel discussion on "Make it New Downtown," includes Tom Gilmore, Con Howe, Eric Owen Moss, Jan Perry and Dan Rosenfeld.
7:30 p.m. Free. Freight Depot, 960 E. Third St., Los Angeles. For more information, call (213) 613-2200.
Adam Duritz, the dreadlocked one, and the rest of the Counting Crows take the stage at the Greek Theatre tonight as the special guests of The Who. With the recent passing of John Entwistle, that famous "My Generation" line, "hope I die before I get old" is sure to have an unsettling ring. But maybe the Crows'll help smash a bass in honor of old "Ox."
7:30 p.m. $49-$259. 2700 North Vermont Ave., Los Angeles. For tickets, call (323) 665-1927.
Naked People! OK, now that we have your attention ... galerie yoramgil's latest exhibition, "It Still Figures," actually does feature naked people. Well, artistic renditions of them, anyway. Admittedly, some of the depictions are less than flattering. But remember, it's about the art, people. And besides, some of us must take our cheap thrills where we can get them.
Runs through Oct. 6. 10:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. (Tuesdays and Wednesdays), 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. (Thursday-Saturday), 11 a.m.-4 p.m. (Sundays), closed Mondays. 319 N. Canon Drive, Beverly Hills. For more information, call (310) 275-8130.
8 p.m. Free. Autry Museum of Western Heritage, 4700 Western Heritage Way, Los Angeles. For reservations, call (213) 740-3405.
Tonight, the Actor's Workout Studio raises the roof for the notorious G-O-D with "Acts of God." The play's three acts, written and directed by Peter Fox, move the story in different directions. Act One tells the story of a writer who enlists the aid of a priest in convincing his Jewish girlfriend to keep her baby. Act Two has a Hollywood producer courting the writer about turning the story of Act One into a television series. Act Three takes place on the set of the series, "God's In Tha House." Each act deals with issues of morality, integrity and God's role in our lives, with the man upstairs showing up in various manifestations along the way.
Runs through Oct. 27. 8 p.m. (Fridays and Saturdays), 7 p.m. (Sundays). $15 (general), $12 (students and seniors). 1735 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood. For reservations, call (818) 506-3903.
