1) As someone who came of age in the 1990s, I do have an affinity for hip-hop. But we can always learn more about things we like, so I’m heading to “History of Hip-Hop,” 6:30 p.m. Jan. 11 at the Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St. Information: 812-379-1255 or mybcpl.org.
2) Do you have your tickets yet for “Dueling Pianos: Take 2” 7 p.m., Jan. 19, The Commons, 300 Washington St., Columbus? Then show is presented by Ivy Tech Community College to raise funds for scholarships and other financial assistance. This is a 21-and-older event. Featuring Tony T and Wildman Joe, who engage the audiences with interactive music, song requests and invite audience members on stage. Cost: $50 per person or $90 per couple.
