Super Bowl Weekend
First a prediction: While we think Donovan McNabb is superb and the Eagles have been a lot of fun to read about all week, we're going with the Patriots as our Super Bowl Champions. You just can't bet against Brady in the playoffs. But nevermind the game. The real important thing to watch on Sunday is American Dad. The animated show from Seth McFarlane promises to be hilarious. It might even get us out of the moon bounce that is being promised at the top secret Super Bowl party we're invited to.
But before you get to Sunday, you've got to get through the rest of the weekend. Tonight, we think all the cool kids are going to show up at the Nuart for the premiere of The Nomi Song. Geometrically shaped glasses are not required but encouraged. The film starts at 7:30, we suggest arriving a little early to get tickets. There will be a Q&A afterwards.
Saturday night you could see what all the hubbub is about Spider when DJ Jake Devere hosts Freaks of the Industry. Jake spins a luscious soulful house set every week. Entry is guest list only but you can get on the list by emailing Binary Soul Recordings. Doors generally open between 10 and 11 PM.
If the gridiron isn't your thing Sunday, you can probably spend a quiet comfortable afternoon at UCLA's Hammer Museum for the launch of THING!. The brand new exhibit features sculpture from 20 Los Angeles based artists, several of whom are recent UCLA graduates. Doors open at 11 AM and admission is $5.
