Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 84. Not Like 1984

Ah yes, another weekend with a great many things to do in only a couple days of the week. Among other things, my car is back in the garage again getting all its bushings lubed, if you know what I mean. At home, the coax will be getting worked over on Thursday coinciding with the installation of a little white box with a certain Warner Brothers character on it. I think I'll have to make this page into a 30 megabyte ShockWave presentation just to bring it into the modern age.

While I'm trapped at home, I'll continue to whine about not having an inexpensive way to get three rolls of film scanned from negatives -- I mean, come on, PictureCD is $5.99 if you do it with your prints, but it'll run you about $50 per roll (around $1.50/print for 36 prints) if you have negatives (even if they're uncut; Thanks Kodak -- for your wonderful forced pricing!) PhotoCD is somewhere between $25 per roll and $25 plus $1.50/print or more depending on who you ask.

  • The Cell - A psychotherapist journeys inside a comatose serial killer in the hopes of saving his latest victim.
  • Godzilla 2000 - Five years forward in time and fifty years back in style from Godzilla 1985, Godzilla fights Sandlash, Omanyte, and the dreaded Picachu.
  • The Original Kings of Comedy - The truth can finally be told about how the black entertainers Cedric the Entertainer, Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, and Bernie Mac had their acts and jokes stolen by the white man.
  • Saving Grace - Marijuana saves the day in so many ways.
  • Steal This Movie! - If the title doesn't mean anything to you, neither will the movie.

Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have The Grinders with The Priests starting around 10:30-ish. I know I've seen both bands before, I just can't remember what they're like.

Meanwhile, at the amazingly-boring-otherwise Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) is the comedy of Danny Liberto, Joey Bruno, and Casey moriarty at 9.

Starting at "dusk", Rugrats 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 Redlight District versus Up From Crash.

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

Next, the new bar/restaurant/club H2O (1661 Mt. Hope Ave.) opens in Mt. Hope Plaza. Some may be aware that it's remarkably close to my house, so it'll hopefully stay in business. I've met two of the three owners and they said to stop by on Friday although they'll be keeping things low-key. They'll only be open from 5 to 10 or so, but will open to the general public on Saturday.

Tonight is East End Fest #3 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. outside then 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. inside. I haven't seen Eddie Nebula and the Plague in a while although I did help make up some 120 variations on "X and the Y" theme a few months back ... anyway, they'll be outside the festival at Monty's Korner (363 East Ave.) The rest of the bands are:

  • 5:00-7:00, Sold Out, Richmond's, Outside Stage #4
  • 5:00-8:00, Julie Dunlap, Milestones, Outside Stage #2
  • 5:30-7:00, Michael Crissan, Aria, Outside Stage #6
  • 6:30-8:30, Ron Levy, Milestones, Outside Stage #1
  • 6:30-11:00, Coupe De Villes, Aria, Outside Stage #5
  • 7:00-9:00, Uncle Plum, Richmond's, Outside Stage #4
  • 7:00-11:00, JT & The United Booty Foundation, Aria, Outside Stage #6
  • 8:00-11:00, Hypnotic Clambake, Milestones, Outside Stage #2
  • 9:00-11:00, Still Kicking, Richmond's, Outside Stage #4
  • 9:00-11:00, Prime Time Funk, Milestones, Outside Stage #1
  • 10:30-11:30, 5Head, Milestones, Inside Stage
  • 11:30-2:00, Tickle the Taint, Milestones, Inside Stage

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

Tonight at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.) is the great funk-rock band Astronomical Unit. They'll probably start around 11:00-ish.

Also of interest is Three Flights Up at Fat Moe's (4419 Dewey Ave.) around 10:00. This is (I think) the last performance before Rob (one of the guitar players) gets married at the beginning of September.

WBER night at Red (171 St. Paul.)

If you have no interest in hearing and/or loving music again, Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) will have an open jam with Krown Kryers starting perhaps at 10. I really can't attest to their skill nor detest them, it's just the words "open jam" that sends chills down to my very soul.

Open mic poetry at Java's (16 Gibb Street) starting around 9:30.
