I am seriously jazzed that the Verge is screening Marwencol tonight!!! I first heard about the film about a year ago when I bought one of Mark Hogancamp's books online. Ever since I've been hoping the film would come to Sac and now it not only is, BUT we're screening it with an all-star panel to follow.
Check out this line up!
Local artist and former Short Center instructor Skinner, Richard L. Nelson Gallery and UC Davis Fine Arts Collection Director Renny Pritikin, UC Davis Neuroscience Lab Manager and Verge Film Series Co-curator Becky Grunewald, and clinical psychologist and Professor of Neurology at UC Davis Dr. Kathleen Baynes.
If you've never come out to a Verge screening before now is the time. They're really chill, with tasty refreshments, free popcorn and good company.
7:30pm $7 BE THERE!!!!!!!!
Following tonight's deal the weekend proves to be a real rager!! Tomorrow night future Verge printmaking resident and Romeo Void front woman Debora Iyall is playing in Chavez Park. I'm totally excited!!!!
Also tomorrow night!!! The Sacramento French Film Festival is having it's kick off with delicious food, French wine, AND I get to ride there in this sweet ass car.
Saturday night OMF is playing the first set with his new band the Scouse Gits at the Blue Lamp and I'm excited after weeks of hearing their sweet tunes wafting outta our garage. What a sharp pack of dudes!
Sunday Tim Holt of Sutter Town News fame is speaking at Time Tested and while you're there you can check out Rebecca Crowther's fabulous window display. This is my favorite photo from the install!
