There's a night of Digital Cabaret tonight at 8 pm at Tangier. Now here's your chance at a few minutes of fame. How it works: Bring your video file. Sign up at 8 pm to screen your own video, video art or music video clip. At 8:30, the first video will be shown, judged and scored. The evening’s theme is “Make It Funny” – so make ’em laugh, but keep it under four minutes. The cabaret will be hosted by Josh Fadem and entertainment by Eric Layer. Tickets are $7.

The film version of the book starred Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. After Cunningham reads a sampling of his work, there will be a discussion following with series organizer Mona Simpson, author of Anywhere But Here and Off Keck Road.
