It's Happening Tonight!

DREAMSPACE—Are you one of those people who loves to bitch about crappy big-budget Hollywood flicks? Well, do something about it by going to Inception—don't wait for it to get to the cheap theaters, don't hold out for DVD, don't download it. Go see it now. Christopher Nolan's mind-bending thriller is epic, smart, weird, and daring—exactly the sort of expensive movie that Hollywood should be rewarded for making. Otherwise, they'll just keep shitting out stuff like Grown Ups. EH
Various theaters, see Movie Times for showtimes, $7-10.50

—Instead of splintering under their increasingly successful solo projects, the Canucks of Wolf Parade keep reconvening and making splendid rock albums. Case in point: Expo 86, their third full-length, and further proof that dueling Wolfers Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner are two of the finest songwriters around. NL
w/the Moools; Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, 9 pm, $20, all ages

Find all the fun that's fit to print at My, What a Busy Week!
