Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The week ended oddly for some us here at LAist (editor's note: mainly me) so we didn't get a chance to tell you about some of the other cool stuff going on this weekend. We did mention Instant Gratification which had a very successful opening last night. Much of the featured artwork was sold and they even had a Six Feet Under alum, Anne Ramsay, make her way through the deceptively large Kraft Studios.

But we had really wanted to tell you about the launch parties for Pretty Persuasion that are happening at Red Buddha this weekend. While the masses are all about the daisy dukes right now, we'll save our movie bucks for next week when Evan Rachel Wood is incredibly inappropriate in bobby socks. Tonight at Red Buddha is Gorgeous! featuring DJ Tuesdae (the Playboy Sex Kitten) and no cover. They also will be doing some Pretty Persuasion giveaways and just generally having a good time. The LA-Based flick opens on Friday.
