For those of us who have a hard time choosing between butterscotch or caramel, The Tudors or Big Love (PS: can we get a new episode already, HBO?), R Kells or 'Kon, here's a happy multi-optioned Friday evening for you: The Happening. Primarily an event to help raise dollars and consciousness for a group of non-profit organizations (including RE*Generation Gallery, Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, National Transplant Assistance Fund and SurfAid International), you get Art + Music + Film + general goodvibery. Art will be shown this eve from 6 PM til 9 at the hotsy totsy Milk gallery and will feature work from honchos like Thomas Campbell, Danny Clinch, Michael Leon and Geoff McFetridge, plus in-gallery jams from Neil Halstead (of the Mojave 3) and Ray Barbee & the Mattson 2. When that's done you get to pop over to hotsy totsy environs at Hiro Ballroom to catch even more tunes from Money Mark, Mason Jennings, and FADER faves Matt Costa and Metric's Emily Haines. Aaaaaaand there will be films to watch from new and emerging directors. We're not sure if they'll have Bud or Bud Light but were sure everything will both taste great and be less filling! Everyone wins!
Party Time: The Happening!
