Our picks for the top entertainment events of the week

UPDATE: Bajofondo concert cancelled.

Bajofondo serves up tango-electronica fusion

Led by Grammy- and Oscar-winning producer Gustavo Santaolalla (Juanes, Café Tacuba, “Brokeback Mountain,” “Babel”) on guitar, vocals and percussion, the Argentine-Uruguayan collective fuses tango with electronica. But this is no mere two turntables-and-a-microphone group. With Santaolalla on guitar, vocals and percussion, the rest of the octet contributes the usual (bass, keys) and the unexpected (bandoneon, violin), intermingling the acoustic and the electronic. Not traditional tango, not traditional electronica, Bajofondo is a danceable mixture of the two. When: 8 p.m. Thursday Where: The Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St. Price: $23 Info: 740-1000, www.rialtotheatre.com

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
