Revel at The Bridge, WTJU movie at Random Row, House Show at Magnolia

May 7th, 2011 · No Comments · By

The Bridge PAI, one of the most ambitious and zany arts organizations in town (and one whom — full disclosure — I worked for them for about 3 years), is hosting their third annual REVEL party tonight. It’s a fundraiser, but also just a crazy party thing, so you kind of get the best of both worlds; show up at 8pm and buy a $55 ticket if you are a rich patron of the community who wants to buy some great art, or come at 11pm and pay only $10 if you’re a working artist who wants to dance.  They’ve got a tent up in the parking lot, crazy decorations everywhere, DJs from WTJU, a live band, etc.

There’s also a movie screening at Random Row tonight, which is the informal kickoff for the WTJU Folk Marathon that starts monday; it’s a documentary called “Sounds Like a Revolution,” which I don’t much about other than that the promo for it is super-annoying, but it apparently features interviews with Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, Al Jourgensen, Ice-T, Steve Earle, and the Dixie Chicks. That’s at 8pm, and they’re asking for a $5 donation to the station as admission. You can also check out the full Folk Marathon schedule here!

Or if you’re more in the mood for a crazy house sow tonight, definitely head to Magnolia to see the last-minute line-up of Ed Schrader, Dope Body, Teen Dreams, Funland Superquest, and Matt Northrup! No idea what time or what cover, but if that’s your thing than be sure to check it out tonight… (remember that Dope Body set opening for Dan Deacon a while back? and the set they played at Magnolia the night before? good shit.)
