Pencil This In: Zombies at Book Soup, A Sonic Forest at USC
The Sacred Fools Theatre Company presents Ten Tops! An Eclectic Open Performance Event tonight at 8 pm. Hosted by Pogo Saito and Carla Jo Bailey, 10 performers get seven minutes apiece to do anything they want—from sketch comedy to dramatic readings, playing music to interpretive dance, spoken word poetry to apocryphal mime-ery. Sign up at 7:30 pm. The optional theme is “Be Real Scary.” General admission is $10; Ten Tops Collective members $5, FREE for performers. Tickets only available at the box office.
Artist/composer Christopher Janney's presents his Sonic Forest--a 1,000-square-foot interactive sound and light environment--on USC’s campus for five days beginning tonight by Tommy Trojan. There’s a performance piece with the Trojan Marching Band percussion section that kicks things off at 6:46 pm (the exact time of dusk). A panel discussion on "Art and Technology in Public Space" will immediately follow that performance in the nearby Annenberg Center.
Today’s the last day of the Hollywood Studio Collection’s movie studio clothing sample sale.

The sale is being held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and ends tonight at 10 pm. Admission is $5; buyers who purchase items that are $15 or more can present their receipt for validation and refund of entry fee.
