    That famous love scene with Deborah Kerr and Montgomery Clift rolling in the waves has been mimicked in everything from “”Beverly Hills, 90210″” to “”Six Days and Seven Nights”” but now you can see the original when the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park screens “”From Here to Eternity”” as part of its “”See the Movie, Read the Book”” film festival.

    Got a whole day to waste? Then there is no better way to spend it than heading downtown to the Gaslamp Quarter for the 28th annual Smooth Jazz 98.1 Jazz Festival. From 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., the streets of San Diego will be crawling with fans waiting to see great national and local jazz artists on two stages.

    For a mere $8, you could be at The Casbah enjoying some first-rate punk rock. For fans of excessively creepy and theatrical punk, Pleasure Forever (with ex-members of Slaves and VSS) will bring their melodic musical arrangements that include piano, organ and, of course, guitar. But Pleasure Forever isn’t the only great band you’ll hear. You’ll also get a good dose of Starlight Desperation, Gogogo Airheart and The Starvations. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. For more information, call (619) 232-4355.

    Ok, so they might be pale and wimpy, but they’re rock musicians — they can get away with it. That’s right, Silvertide will be coming to San Diego and will play at Brick by Brick. The band that hails from Philadelphia is notorious for its shows and for bringing back that nostalgic feeling of classic rock from bygone days. And what’s better than getting to see Silvertide in concert? You also get to see The Makeout Boys and Nativ Flux. Tickets are a bargain $7. Doors open at 8 p.m. For tickets and information, call (619) 275-LIVE.

    Some of its members used to be in Christian bands, but don’t mistake King’s X as a Christian band. Their complex, singular songs and skillful musicianship have helped the trio build a large following. The highly respected group will play at 4th and B at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. They will play with Fishbone and Brothers from Another Planet. Tickets are $20. For more information, call (619) 231-4343.
