The Iceman Cometh
Taking it back to junior high, the Knitting Factory has an unusual free show tonight. In the Main Room, see a performance by none other than the man with the wacky fade: Vanilla Ice. The show is being filmed for a VH1 special, so show up early if you want to get in. Things kick off at 7:00 PM.
Across town at the Troubadour, hang out at the Kiss or Kill Club, a recurring event organized by LA's own Bang Sugar Bang. Tonight is a record release show for The Dollyrots, and also includes AM Radio, The Knives and The Randies on the bill. Tickets are $5.00 at the door, which opens at 7:30 PM.
Tonight is a special event at the Writer's Guild Theater in Beverly Hills. Anne Garrels, NPR's correspondent in Baghdad, and Robert Greenwald, producer of the documentary Outfoxed, will be conversing on the state of current affairs. Garrels will be speaking about her new book, Naked in Baghdad: The Iraq War as Seen by NPR's Correspondent, about her experiences during the war. Coupled with current hot button-pusher Greenwald, it promises to be a thoughtful night. The discussion begins at 7:30 PM and tickets are $20.00.
