Bethany and I are zipping off to New York City to catch the closing night of Edward Scissorhands at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this weekend. Tickets are still available for Saturday, after which the production picks up and moves to Toronto for three shows next week. More info at the official site (previously posted January 25.)

Also Saturday evening in the 718, Monkeytown is screening lost underground French punk/new wave film La Brune et Moi. Described as a "Downtown 81... if it were shot in Paris..." La Brune et Moi was filmed over one week in 1979 and features performances by Artefact, Astroflash, Ici Paris, Edith Nylon, The Questions, The Party, Marquis de Sade and more. Our good friend Dan Selzer will be playing french punk/post-punk/new wave stuff with Ceci from East Village Radios' Radio Heart show and other friends after the film. Screenings are at 7:30 and 10 PM and reservations are recommended.

Speaking of Dan, if you haven't visited Acute Records lately, there is all kinds of new stuff to see, hear and buy.

If you're in Detroit this weekend, be sure to check out two great events: Lighting Bolt and Perfect Wieners and Butts at MOCAD Friday Night, and the Les Infants Terribles Three Year Anniversary Party Saturday night at Corktown Tavern.
