Nov 26 til ???

The title is a reference to all those party announcements that say "6pm til ???" meaning the cops could break it up at 6.30pm or it could rage until 3.30am. Here are the haps for this week, and I'll update when I have updates. Look at the whole week so you know what to pencil in your Hello Kitty datebook. And if somehow you've haven't happenstancedly seen Ozomatli for free 3 times in the last year as I have, they're playing Thursday thru Sunday at the Independent (not free: $27). The trombone player's charisma might be worth that price alone. Monday, November 26th:
  • Midnight Cowboy at ATA 7.30pm $5 for movie, discussion by Whore magazine, and cupcakes!
  • 6pm BBQ and POTLUCK @ 2050 Bryant btwn 18th/19th St. Community Meeting at 6:30 Board Meeting @ 7:30 GET INVOLVED. [sic from that PlantTrees Guy, so I don't know much about this event, but who doesn't enjoy potlucks?]

  • Movie night! At your own place.
Wednesday, November 28th:
  • Sugar and Gold, The Most Serene Republic, and Los Campesinos! [sic] at Great American Music Hall. Show at 8pm $12. I'm going to eat so much at the SFBC meeting beforehand because I need calories to burn as I shake it nonstop at this concert. Wear something shiny.
