Like many aspiring tranny space aliens, I worked Rocky Horror shows in college, and through many, many weeks of rehearsals have probably seen the show a dozen times. That being said, even though there are two shows every weekend down here, I've yet to see it in L.A. Now might be a good time to check out Midnight Insanity's show at the Warner Grand Theatre. Yes, it's all the way out in San Pedro, but it's cast-member Bill's 20th year with the show, which means lingerie night and the ghosts of Janets past (one of whom, Danielle, is tapped to be Fangoria's next Spooksmodel)! Once/if you wake up on Sunday, the party continues at Rockystock in Huntington Central Park, wedged between the public library & the bathrooms. Oh, Brad!

Ah, but the Greeks invented big, fat, queer weddings-gone-wrong thousands of years ago, a tradition they keep to this very weekend with the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival. Breakout Greek writer/director/actress Nia Vardalos (go ahead, name another one) claims to hate Valentine's Day with her latest triple threat, but the results will certainly be quirky, romantic fun. If not, nothing says date night like wine, cheese, a crime comedy & cartoon! Then, punk out with your junk out at a tribute to Penelope Spheeris of rock doc infamy. Party time, excellent!

Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
