TOP 5 FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS

Bike Prom at Black Cat
A chance to wear fancy clothes, drink New Belgium Beer and dance all night with a bunch of other bicycle loving 20 and 30-somethings. Every stereotype about hipsters will be present. It'll be fun.

Philip Kaufman: American Stylist at National Gallery of Art
This presentation includes a screening of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." That's about girls, right? Sorry about the "High Fidelity" reference.
Monday, July 30
"Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated" at McFadden's
"Night of the Living Dead" is one of the most important films and is the best zombie movie of all time. It also happens to be in the public domain. This is a good thing. Since anyone can do anything to the source material, we get things like this "Reanimated" version of the film. 100 artists interpreted scenes from the film to give the audience a new experience with an old film. Super cool.
