Radiohead in New Orleans

Anyone else going to the Radiohead show in New Orleans on Monday? I'm a huge fan who's never seen them live, so I'm taking the day off to ride the Crescent train down and spend most of the day waiting in line like a nut for a decent spot. If anybody else has general admission/floor tickets, maybe we can do a mini meet-up and save each other's places in line for food/bathroom breaks/chat/phalanxing our way to center rail?

Liars' League - Us and Them

Liars' League is a themed monthly fiction night, where professional actors read new short stories by writers from around the world. The stories this month feature baby rats, traumatised soldiers, uppity moths, self-consuming metafiction, 80s action figures, and a very sinister housing committee. No narrator is too unusual, no story too strange for our Us & Them event, as we hand over the mike to collective voices, extraordinary viewpoints and life-or-death clashes and connections.

Yoni Ki Baat - 10th Anniversary

Yoni Ki Baat, inspired by The Vagina Monologues, presents true stories by and about South Asian women talking about sexuality, gender, and womanhood as it intersects with race and culture.

Tix are $15: partial proceeds go towards supporting organisations that help women and girls. [more inside]

Suicide's Requiem at The Garage

Suicide's Requiem is a collaborative dance-theater performance created & performed by and about survivors of suicide and mental health issues - whether directly or through a loved one - soundtracked by Mozart's Requiem and personal interviews. Our aim is to educate people about suicide through personal perspectives, and encourage personal and societal healing around mental health. I have been involved with this project since day 1 and have found it profoundly powerful; I would be really honoured to have your presence. [more inside]

Hartford's Living Room, the La Paloma Sabanera coffee house, is shutting its doors at the end of this month, and its owner, Virginia, is moving on to other, better things.

John "Grangousier" Peacock at the Stage Door

OK, I've done this half-hearted self-promotion on Metafilter before, and people encouraged me to post if I was doing another gig (and it's taken this long to get one) - I'll be playing a thirty-five minute set, probably at about 9:15 at The Stage Door in Waterloo (behind the Old Vic, nearest tube Waterloo). Free entrance. [more inside]

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant!

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant! is a pageant (about Thanksgiving). Join such luminaries as Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, and Jesus the Christ as they tell the story of the first meeting between the godly Pilgrims and those wacky Natives (who didn't even speak English!). Featuring songs, Squanto, Dutch punk teenagers, King James I of England, a dream ballet, and more, this is the real story of how America became... America. But you know like AMERICA. One night only, Thursday, November 29th, 8pm at Ars Nova. Here is a thing to click to get tickets, which are $12, and which are totally worth it, I swear. [more inside]

Me, Live at the Spice of Life in London's West End

Me being Grangousier. (That's my MeFi superhero name, my real name is John Peacock). And this being a gesture in the general direction of promoting said bout of self-expression in the general direction of anyone who might have met me at a previous MeFi piss-up social event and consequently be interested or curious or such. I'll be playing a half-hour set at 20:00 in the basement of The Spice of Life, right in the heart of London's West End, next door to Singing in the Rain. It's free to get in, which is important in these days of reduced access to coinage. [more inside]

Painting with Words & Fire (15 - 25 Feb)

Reveling in your passion is one thing, but when does it become an unhealthy obsession? Painting with Words and Fire explores the lives of three women: Penny a pyromaniac, who has a penchant for burning brothels; Jane, searching for one more poem from her boyfriend; and Sophia, trapped inside Lady Macbeth. They all find themselves at a crossroads. [more inside]

Thanksgiving! A! Pageant!

A ridiculously silly show in the style of your standard elementary school Thanksgiving Pageant, but will all the smallpox and religious intolerance added back in, plus really stupid jokes. Like, I mean, e.g. Miles Standish is never clearly standing or sitting. So. There's that. November 20-23! [more inside]

Exit Every Mundi - The Dr. Sketchy's 5th Anniversary Bash

It's the end of the world! In fact it's the all the possible ends of the end as Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School celebrates 5 years with a tribute to Eschatology! Draw models depicting The Whore Of Babylon, Gas-Strapped Road Warriors, or inevitable zombie hordes. Mingle, drink, draw, eat and boggie down the Apocalypso in a sumptuous Brooklyn art space. It's the end of the year as we know it and it's about damn time. [more inside]

Red On Strike Live in Long Beach

My band Red On Strike will be playing this Friday night at The Blue Cafe in Long Beach. We will be going on at 11, with our friends Ware & The Now playing at 10 (they play hip hop with a live band, it's very good.) Supposed to be two other bands but they haven't been booked yet, so I'm not sure what the rest of the night's music wil be like.

Noel Coward play + possible socializing before or after

A pal of mine is in the Silver Spring Stage production of Noel Coward's Private Lives and nearly guarantees a good time to any attendee. Cutting British wit, that sort of thing. It's at 8. Wanna grab beverages/food before &/or after? Update: My pal says, "For pregaming, there's a Mexican place also across the street that is ideal - Fajita Coast." So I hereby propose that we meet there at 7pm. I shall be there with a book in any case. [more inside]
