SADLACK'S—Early-days misinformation aside, Patty Hurst Shifter's Smiths are not brothers. Witness them playing off each other onstage, though, and it becomes an honest mistake. And when the rhythm section has the night off, that simpatico musical relationship is even clearer. It's not coffeehouse sing-along time, just rugged rock songs presented in a stripped-down setting. The free show starts at 7 p.m.). —Rick Cornell

QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS AND MUSIC—Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich's 1994 Contract With America cut social programs while promising to balance the budget and end Congress' "cycle of scandal and disgrace." How's that working out? With the GOP in charge, the United States now has an $8 trillion deficit. GOP Congressmen Bob Ney, Duke Cunningham and Mark Foley have either gone to jail or resigned for their shenanigans. Gingrich fell from grace after the House Ethics Committee fined him $300,000 for violating federal tax regulations. While trying to impeach Bill Clinton for lying about his sexual dalliances, Gingrich, as it was later learned, also had an extramarital affair. Now Gingrich may run for the Republican presidential nomination. Hear Gingrich explain and plug his new book, Pearl Harbor: A Novel of December 8th, at 7 p.m. —Lisa Sorg
