Sketchy Reefer Catapults

I'm going to be in Chicago this weekend, rehearsing with my "crew" for our upcoming performance at IDKE Vancouver, so I'm going to miss most of the fun planned around town over the next few days. That doesn't mean you have to, though! There are more than enough shenanigans to choose from:

"Reefer Madness" at the Bartell, courtesy of local theatre hooligans Mercury Players Theatre. It was so entertaining when I saw it last week that I'll be in attendance, a couple of friends in tow, at this Friday night's showing.

Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School: it's just killing me that I've yet to make it to one of these fabulous events (Sunday afternoon at the High Noon Saloon). They are, by all accounts, a raucous good time and feature Madison's hostess with the mostess, Olive Talique. Drawing, drinking and debauchery are the themes of the day and you get to ogle/sketch two super sexy ladies from local "caburlesque" group, Sexy Veronica's Peach Pies, so don't miss out!

A Catapult Western playing with Elsinore at the High Noon Saloon on Sunday (the 23rd), starting at 8pm. Why should you go see them? Because a few members of ACW are good friends of mine and I know for a fact are fine musicians. They opened for my own band this summer and were quite delightful.

Live music not your thing? Rather view or screen one of your own genius short films? Wis-Kino is having their regular monthly screening at Escape Java Joint this Sunday evening at 7pm. It's cheap, fun, local entertainment.

And of course, there's always the wonderful Dane County Farmer's Market on the capitol square Saturday morning. It's a great place to load up on some delicious local food to help you out with your own Eat Local Challenge. How's that going, by the way?
