Picture this like Sliding Doors, you pick one option, meet the person of your dreams, start your own PR firm. You pick another and you're headed out to San Francisco on your own, something that didn't happen in the film Sliding Doors but maybe should have?

Option 1: Matthew Samways, Unreal Thought, DJ Brett Wagg at the Khyber, 8pm, $5. Dark, ambient, minimal, electronic, cold, wave, wow

Option 2: Live Art Dance presents Usually Beauty Fails, Frédérick Gravel/Grouped’ArtGravelArtGroup, 8pm, Sir James Dunn Theatre, $30/$25/$20. There are two more chances to see this amazing performance (tonight and tomorrow). Hilarious, impressive and delightful—Usually Beauty Fails is a mix of music (loud, electric, soft, acoustic and some harmonica for good measure), and the very best kind of contemporary dance, Gravel and his group do not take themselves too seriously here. It's a smorgasbord where transitions are part of the show, either with Gravel's charming monologues or complete costume changes on the lit stage. There is champagne, but you can't have any. Instead you get to laugh until you cry and on a dime marvel at the power and proficiency of GravelArtGroup.

Option 3: Cry over Christmas, together with BSide Gallery's Sad X-Mas opening tonight at BSide Gallery, 7:30pm. Read more here! Click! Cry!

Option 4: Pop and you don't stop with Reference Desk, Psychic Fair, Construction & Destruction and Moonsocket at Gus' Pub, 10:30pm. $4 before 11, $7 after. Tender, funny tunes with pals. If you have no pals don't forget Party Mix will never turn its back on you.

Option 5: Gilmore Girls is still on Netflix. Just so you know if you pick this option your life will be the most boring path of all these sliding doors. That said, I am living for Rory's Season 4 look these days. Nice bob, girl!
