Todd Rundgren: The pop star, producer and technofetishist began his career with Philly's Nazz way back in '67, but he remains absolutely relevant today. (P.S. The tunes will reportedly take precedence over the techno at this show.) Sharing the stage is guitarist Nils Lofgren, who's neither spring chicken nor slouch himself. The all-ages show starts at 9 p.m. Saturday, November 23, at Gibson's, 410 South Mill in Tempe. Tickets are $17 in advance, $18 the day of the show, available at Ticketmaster. Call 967-1234 or 784-4444.

"Yellow Brick Road Bus": The traveling memorabilia museum features mementos from The Wizard of Oz, including Dorothy's checkered dress and a replica pair of her ruby slippers by Western Costume, the company that crafted the originals. Stumping for the recently rereleased video edition of Oz, the bus stops at Planet Hollywood, located at Biltmore Fashion Park, 24th Street and Camelback, from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, November 23. Call 954-7827.

Nuyorican Poets Cafe: The poetry/performance-art troupe from New York's Lower East Side comprises Shakespearean professor Miguel Algarin and his fellow lingual activists/rebels, who, say they, "hold in common a passionate belief in poetry as a means for getting at an active truth while not shying away from the entertaining part of the word." Showtime is 8 p.m. Saturday, November 23, at Gammage Auditorium, Mill and Apache in Tempe; the performance continues the venue's "On-Stage" series, in which audience members are seated on the stage with the performers. Tickets are $15, available at Gammage and Dillard's. Call 965-3434 or 678-2222.

Sahuaro State Kennel Club's Harvest of Champions: The top breeds in the world are put through their paces in this American Kennel Club-sanctioned pup-off, scheduled from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, November 23; and the same hours Sunday, November 24, at Arizona State Fairgrounds, 19th Avenue and McDowell.

Medeski, Martin and Wood, and Charlie Hunter Quartet: Keyboardist John Medeski, percussionist Billy Martin and bassist Chris Wood live--and record--in a shack in the Hawaiian jungle, at least when they're not pounding the pavement in a camper in support of their loopy, Gen X jazz, as they are now for their new Gramavision/Ryko disc, Shack-man. Eight-string-guitar whiz and Blue Note recording artist Hunter is a fluid and, some say, visionary purveyor of new jazz--a real San Francisco treat; see the story on page 105. The all-ages show starts at 9 p.m. Sunday, November 24, at the Rockin' Horse, 7316 East Stetson in Scottsdale. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 the day of the show, available at the club and Ticketmaster. Call 949-0992 or 784-4444.
