Johnny Cupcakes Presents: The Goonies
Tonight at midnight, Johnny Cupcakes (it's t-shirts, not actual cupcakes) is presenting a showing of The Goonies at the Fairfax Cinemas (7907 Beverly Blvd.), and it's $10 for all seats. Not sure if you remember/know 1985's The Goonies? Here's the story: "With their neighborhood in danger of being bulldozed and turned into a golf course, a plucky group of misfit kids set out to save their beloved 'hood in the most logical way possible: by embarking on a quest to find lost pirate treasure, naturally. Of course the path to the loot is paved with perils, including a host of imaginative booby traps, awkward adolescent moments, and a band of bumbling crooks out to claim the treasure for themselves." Oh yeah, Corey Feldman's in it. LOL.

Filipino-American Artists salute Ryan Cayabyab at the Ford Ampitheatre
Tonight at 8pm, "The Music of Life: Awit ng Buhay" at the Ford Ampitheatre showcases the music of the Philippines' most successful composer, Ryan Cayabyab. In honor of his more than 30-year career, Filipino-American artists, including American Idol alum Jasmine Trias, come together to showcase Cayabyab’s music. Enjoy Cayabyab's endearing melodies and songs in both English and Filipino under the stars. Cayabyab himself will be present as honorary guest to witness that his work not only brings pride to Filipinos, but also brings Filipino-American artists in touch with their heritage. Tickets are $50; bring a picnic!
