The lowdown : The Little Italy Open Air Film Festival presents Cinderella Man, the real-life-inspired story of Jim Braddock, a once-promising light heavyweight boxer who retired into a series of Depression-era dead-end jobs after losing bout after bout. But despite obstacles, he fought his way back and gave hope to the disenfranchised masses.
If you go: The film will be shown at 9 p.m. tomorrow at High and Stiles streets in Little Italy. Bring a lawn chair and food. The movie is free. Go to littleitalymd.com.

The lowdown: Ted Nugent - musician, author, hunter, hell-raiser - has always generated as much buzz with his guitar as controversy with his actions. So, who knows what he'll bring to the stage at Rams Head Live besides arena-rock anthems and hard-rock guitar riffs. Some will certainly be looking to catch Cat Scratch Fever.
If you go: Nugent plays Tuesday at Rams Head Live, 20 Market Place. The doors open at 7 p.m.; he goes on at 8 p.m. Tickets are $35. Call 410-244-1131 or go to ramsheadlive.com.
