It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Mon, Nov 15, 2010 at 3:05 PM


NO CONTROL—We get it, Bad Religion is OLD. But Greg Graffin & Co. can still deliver a lights-out punk rock show that elevates both mind and body. If that's not enough Graffin for you, the UCLA professor will sign and discuss his new book, Anarchy Evolution: Faith, Science, and Bad Religion in a World without God on Tuesday. I think it's an erotic thriller about teenage vampires. EAC
w/Bouncing Souls, Off with Their Heads; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $22.50, all ages; Graffin reads Tues Nov 16 at Powell's Books on Hawthorne, 3723 SE Hawthorne, 6 pm, FREE

SPITEFUL SEXINESS—The tired, old-school English pastoral gets a welcome update with director Stephen Frears' Tamara Drewe, in which a once-mocked but now smokin' hot girl (Gemma Arterton) returns to her picturesque English town and starts stirring up trouble. EH
Fox Tower 10, 846 SW Park, see Movie Times for showtimes, $8.50-10.50

More at My, What a Busy Week! (And I second the endorsement of Tamara DreweI really, really liked it.)
