Pencil This In: The Not Inappropriate Show, a Sigur Ros Film, a Beer Bowl and a Wine Tasting
Except for that little football game in Pasadena today, it’s a little quiet in LA. It seems that people might need a little breather from all that eating, drinking and being merry stuff. We did find a few happenings, including Bob Odenkirk’s annual New Year’s sketch comedy show for kids; a screening of Sigur Ros’ latest film Inni; and a beer bowl. Read on for all the details.
Tonight at 8 pm, the Downtown Independent screens Sigur Ros’ second live film Inni. It’s a follow up to the band’s 2007 film Heima. “Whereas that film positioned the enigmatic group in the context of their Icelandic homeland, providing geographical, social and historical perspectives on their otherworldly music, with uplifting results, Inni focuses purely on the band’s performance, which is artfully and intimately captured by French Canadian director Vincent Morisset.” Tickets: $13.
Today at 4 pm, Upright Citizens Brigade hosts The Not Inappropriate Show to benefit 826LA. The sketch comedy show features skits and bits appropriate for a young audience (recommended for ages 8 and up). Presented by Bob and Naomi Odenkirk, the show features Stephanie Allynne, The Birthday Boys, Neil Campbell, Nate Clark, Michael Naughton, Odenkirk, Corey Podell, Lisa Schurga, Greg Worswick and Kate Micucci.
Still have guests in town and don’t know where to take them? How about a visit to LA’s only working winery. Founded in 1917 by Santo Cambianica, the San Antonio Winery is still family-owned and operated, offering guests complimentary wine tastings. The winery’s restaurant is also open today (and the food’s pretty tasty, too). Open until 6 pm.
Today’s the last day to participate in Haven Gastropub + Brewery’s Beer Bowl fundraiser. Haven has assigned breweries for two teams in the Rose Bowl: Rogue Ales, for the Oregon Ducks and the Leinenkugel Brewing Co., for the Wisconsin Badgers. At the end of game day, the beer purchased the most between the two, will be declared “winner,” and 100% of the profits from the designated beer will be donated back to the team’s university. For those who don’t care for either team, the bar features 100 bottled craft beer selections, and dozens more on tap.
