    1. 'Love and Honor'
    After his girl breaks up with him, a Vietnam soldier must journey back home to win back her affection in Danny Mooney's "Love and Honor," which airs at the Theatre N tonight and Saturday.
    Young Vietnam soldier Dalton Joiner (Austin Stowell) has just been kicked to the curb by his lady, Jane (Aimee Teegarden). Now in Vietnam, he vows to sneak home during the war to rekindle their flame. In addition, Joiner's best bud, Mickey Wright (Liam Hemsworth), isn't one to miss out on a wild time and decides to go with him.

    2. No Such Noise! and Three for Five
    Fans of ska music can get their fix tonight at the Kennett Flash with No Such Noise! and their opener, Three for Five.
    No Such Noise! is an outfit that's unafraid to wear its inspirations on its sleeve. Playing a brand of pop-punk fused with ska horns, the group takes after New Found Glory as much as it does Less Than Jake. Moreover, the band's hook-laden choruses back this up. Catchy ska portions invade verses while No Such Noise! offers its own fresh take on a genre that's been around for decades.
