Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 81. Shogi Squares

Here's a short week update. The next update will come on Tuesday instead of Thursday, then the one after that will be as usual starting on Thursday.

Oh, and my technology destruction rampage continues to continue. I went to see Bringing Up Baby at the Dryden Theater last week and the projector just stopped about halfway through the movie. Then, at the only other movie I saw (Driver's Wanted at The Little), the projector there also stopped -- just a couple minutes into the movie, though.

  • Nutty Professor II: The Klumps - With Eddie Murphy playing six roles and the word "klumps" in the title, how can you go wrong?
  • But I'm a Cheerleader - A naive teenager Megan (Natasha Lyonne) is sent to a True Directions, a homosexual-rehabilitation camp when she's suspected of being a lesbian.
  • Thomas & the Magic Railroad - A young girl takes a trip to see her grandfather who brings her on a train pulled by the one and only Thomas. Also wins the Childrens Movie Most Likely To Also Be A Porno award.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have The Blood. If I remember right, they're an unbelievably loud true-to-form heavy metal band.

Starting at "dusk", Pokémon: The First Movie will be shown at Highland Bowl (South Ave. at Robinson Dr.)

Milestones (170 East Ave.) is again hosting Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest with Don't Bother the Dog versus Us Falls (US Falls? U.S. Falls?).

Dinner as always at California Rollin' at Village Gate Square (274 N. Goodman St.)

Tonight at Milestones (170 East Ave.) a couple bands are playing who I've heard of but never heard. They're Into the Now and Derelict Brew and they're listed as "groove rock".

Meanwhile at Spenders (1600 Lyell Ave.) is my friend's band Three Flights Up.

Karaoke with Sugar Bear at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)

O'Bagelo's, 165 State Street, noon.

During the day on is the Park Avenue Festival (Park Ave. from Alexander St. to Culver Rd.) Keep an eye out for Dean and Faith's (Demon Face, for those who like in-jokes) band Elderwilde. I saw them once at the Krown and thought they were pretty good.

As for the evening, I've got nothing to offer that I've seen. Here's some random-ish picks:

  • Tickle the Taint on the Roof at The Centers at High Falls (60 Brown's Race) because (a) it's the roof and (b) Tickle the Taint keeps getting gigs.
  • Don't Bother the Dog with Last Stand at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) because (a) Don't Bother the Dog is a cool name and (b) Richmonds has been getting pretty good bands lately.
  • Reverend Horton Heat with Hank Williams III and Frantic Flattops because R.H.H. is a pretty good nationally-known act.
  • Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) because "everything is $2" from 8 to 11. I guess this is more of something to just keep in the back of your mind in case you're short on cash and long on longing to be pickled.

Prior to heading out for the late night, check out The Third Man at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) This should prove to be a sufficiently engaging movie to throw you off for the rest of the evening. Basically, an American writer is trying to demystify his friend's mysterious death in corrupt post-WWII Vienna.

WBER night at Red (171 St. Paul.)

The Park Avenue Festival (Park Ave. from Alexander St. to Culver Rd.) continues through today.

Instead of re-runs tonight, see Wisconsin Death Trip at the Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) It's a "true story" of a Wisconsin town that gets hit with a string of bad luck causing its citizenry to go a bit larky.

Sixty Fields Forever:

  • Futurama: A Head in the Polls - A couple of clones campaign for the presidency, and Bender sells his body to Richard Nixon, who joins the race.
  • King of the Hill: Old Glory - After Peggy writes Bobby's school essay about the flag, his teacher chooses him to read his essay during a ceremony.
  • Simpsons: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge - A jilted bride moves in with the Simpsons and smothers Homer and the children with motherly love, driving Marge mad.
  • Malcolm in the Middle: Funeral - Exasperated with nonstop complaints, Lois throws in the towel, which leads to the rapid breakdown of family life.
