Dear GYA, I hereby proclaim that Jurassic Park 3D will be a complete waste of my time this weekend. There, I said it. Why does Hollywood insist on remaking every damned movie into 3-D? Third dimension! Hey, everybody, we've got a third dimension over here! See, nobody cares. Anything happening this weekend better than seeing a 3-D pile of triceratops shit? - Marcus Bromentine, Midvale---
Marcus, Jurassic Park is an American classic. Personally, I'd love to see Samuel L. Jackson say, "Hold onto your butts" in 3-D. But if that;s not your thing, here's what's up this weekend. Let's start with Friday:
- Faustina will be hosting an evening of jazz music called Les Groove Artistes, which means "jazz music." The show starts at 8.
- Head to the Woodshed for an evening of sweet chick bands entitled Ladies That Rock. The lineup inlcudes Minx, Bombshell Academy and The Wild Ones. The show starts at 9.
- Folk-rock band Little Green Cars will be at The State Room this evening. Tickets are $12. The doors open at 8.
- For a night of dubstep wobbles, check out Dubwise at Urban Lounge, starting at 9. Tickets are $10.
- At the Barrel Room (inside The Hotel), alternative cover band Hostage will be performing, beginning at 9 p.m.
- Bar Deluxe will be hosting a CD Release party for local band Track Back. Redemption is also on the bill. The show starts at 9 p.m.
- Pop-reggae group Common Kings will be on the mic at The Complex. Fiji will be providing support. The show starts at 8 p.m.
- The Rose Wagner Center will be showing a non-3-D screening of Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List, starting at 6 p.m.
