If you've got a daughter, take her to Girls Rock! this Sunday at the Echo Park Film Center. It's a pretty inspiring rawk dawc. If you don't have a daughter, take yourself. The funny looks will be worth it, because there's plenty fun for adults too. Then sit tight - because right about the time it sinks in that Rock 'n' Roll Camp is electrifying Portland and we're in L.A., Girls Rock Los Angeles & its faithful organizers burst onto center stage! Give 'em a few minutes of your time & a few dollars for the ticket. Unless you want the future of grrl rock repped by Kristen Stewart...

Does all this rain have you yearning for a blazing desert escape? The Aero has a John Ford retrospective, with very healthy doses of The Duke. Dial up the desperation & add even healthier doses of violence for The Wild Bunch, hosted by Kathryn Bigelow at the Hammer Museum. If, on the other hand, you love dark, stormy nights, brave it all for a sneak preview of Clive Barker adaptation Dread at the New Beverly, with the writer-director, cast & exclusive giveaways on hand. Or, just spend some quiet time with your mates, kidnapping your mate's mate, with 44 Inch Chest, in its second (and final) week at the Nuart.

Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
