Way too much going on this weekend

Tonight, Oct. 14

class=img_thumbleft>Right now there's a

freestyle battle

at Digital City Music on Broadway (formerly Classic Records). But I'm heading out to the


exhibit at the

Soap Factory

before the gallery closes at 8:00 p.m. Look at

Mars in the sky

between 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. at the U of M, and then, if I'm not too fried, maybe head to




at the


, then maybe go to the

Energy Lab


First Avenue


Punk Rock Holocaust

has a

midnight screening


Sound Unseen

, and is worth seeing just for



Lindsey likes

it). There's also Chicago house star

DJ Boris

(a.k.a. Jerome Baker, Lord Damian, Dorian Baker) taking the tables at 12:30 a.m. at the


. Later I might do a drop-by at

the Session on KFAI

between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Or I might be asleep...

Saturday, Oct. 15

class=img_thumbleft>There are a couple good early films today:

The Sorrow and the Pity



. There's also

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. Tscreening around the same time

--I like the idea of a cult 1953 kids movie on 35mm. The same afternoon,

Harvey Pekar

appears at the

Twin Cities Book Festival

hosted by

Rain Taxi

. And Skoltz-Kogen's

live AV show, Fluux:/terminal

runs from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at

McNally Smith Auditorium

. If you're looking for more fluffy afternoon entertainment, I recommend a matinee of the

Joss Whedon



, or putting on makeup and joining the

Zombie Pub Crawl

. Otherwise, there's an early, all-ages


by the completely wonderful

United State of Electronic

(official site


) hitting the stage of the

7th St. Entry

at about 7:00 p.m. (I'll have to miss

La Fabrik-K: The Cuban Hip-Hop Factory

, a 2004 video about Cuban hip hop, which

screens once during Sound Unseen at 7:30 p.m

.) I'd go to the U.S.E. drinky show if the evening weren't already so packed: Sound Unseen's musical highlight of the weekend is the

Chairkickers' Union Party

(here's the

new label site

!) hosted by


's Alan Sparhawk (pictured) at the

331 Club

in NE, with

Paul Metzger


The Keepaways


No Wait Wait


If Thousands

, and "DJ Sparhawk." (I'll probably hit this first.) The same night, I'll see French hip-hoppers and

Eyedea/Stokley/Brother Ali

at the

Triple Rock

(which I'll probably hit second) as part of

Minnesota Sur Seine

, and

Omaur Bliss

headlining a show at the

Kitty Cat Klub

with the Elementalz and


(which I'll probably hit third). After that,


's house party goes late.

Sunday, Oct. 16 I'm just going to rest, and head to St. Olaf Church for the African Mass at 11:45 a.m. Then eat some food with my new Guinean friend Jean, who sings in the choir.
