Stray Dog @ Aero Theatre
Japanese director Akira Kurosawa was a film icon. Without him, geeks would never be able to proudly say that the force was with them always. Kurosawa's film “The Hidden Fortress” was an inspiration for director George Lucas' Star Wars. In the month of January the Aero Theatre chronicles the man's cinematic life showcasing some of his greatest work. First up, is the crime drama Stray Dog. Starring legendary actor Toshiro Mifune (the two men would work on many other projects) the film chronicles a young cop whose gun is stolen from him on a bus. He will stop at nothing to find it in order to not face the shame from his fellow peers and to himself. Aero Theatre is located at 1328 Montana Avenue at 14th St. in Santa Monica.

Zach Galifianakis @ Largo
Beards are really funny. Comedian Zach Galifianakis sports one of the gnarliest beards in all of comedy, quite possibly of all time. Its not hyperbole but simply pure fact. And sure you can just show up at Largo on a Friday and just stare it but that wouldn't serve much purpose because guess what, Galifianakis is one of the funniest men in America. If you're lucky he might scream at you but don't fret you'll be laughing during it. Largo is located at 432 North Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors @ Staples Center
With rumors swirling around the potential pickup of Chris Webber who was last seen playing for the Philadelphia 76ers abound, one wonders how the former Sacramento King would look like in a Lakers jersey considering the fact the Lakers and the Kings help a long standing rival which was the eye for many NBA fans in this very early decade. Nonetheless the Lakers will have a tough time (C-Web or no C-Web) against the Golden State Warrior who look more defense oriented what with the tough minded philosophy planted by Warriors head coach Don Nelson. Staples Center is located at 1111 South Figueroa St.. For more information visit 

Tuesday, Jan. 23
Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton @ El Rey Theatre
Knives Don't Have Your Back, the recently released solo work from Metric front woman Emily Haines was a drastic departure from that dance noise that she created with the Toronto based group. The change will also occur live as she won't be a whirling dervish but rather sitting down comfortably with one of her best friends, the piano. It's January, it’s somber music and it's in a nice theatre. Enjoy the warmth. Accompanying her on tour will be The Soft Skeleton, the same plethora of player that helped her with the solo album. El Rey Theatre is located at 5515 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Karaoke Wednesday @ Fiesta Cantina
Karaoke in West Hollywood has always been a time honored tradition. Let that freak flag fly high and proud as you peruse through the extensive songbook that the Fiesta Cantina has to offer. Happy hours tend to run until late at night so enjoy the two for one drink specials that'll run until midnight. It'll definitely take the pain away as your friends joke as to why you chose to sing another Journey song. Fiesta Cantina is located at 8865 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood.
