Weekend Events ~ March 15-18 ~ Los Angeles


A lot of bands seem to be shunning our city for Southwest detours this weekend, allowing us to save our energy for what really matters to us. We're sorta, kinda talkin' molesting drunk leprachuans and dosing on green-flavored insanity, only taking that same spirit to the streets for Saturday's March Against Illegal Bullshit Wars and all Forthcoming Imperialist Aggression, in Hollywood. If you have even the slightest unease about illegal invasions, illegal torture, illegal detainments, illegal wire-tapping, illegal crony-ism, lies, the waste of Iraqi lives and sanity, the waste of U.S. lives and resources, for unclear reasons in the name of your government, our government, then this is the big one to show Big Brother we are not as complacent as they hope. Trust us, it will feel good, too. And yes, you can arrive drunk if you're really missing standing in line at Brennan's. Spending Sunday with the legendary Mr. Cartoon sounds like a good way to shake the Irish off.
