Sorry m'love, and just when you forgot about your bout of Pac-Man hysteria and got over that hardcore case of Fernando-Mania, we're injecting you with a massive dose of TACO Fever from the same Pacific corner. Memorial day weekend is here with lots to do. We're constantly bugging the crap out of you guys to check out Restitution Press and Hit n' Run Crew, well they're making it easier on you by joining forces in Pasadena this Friday for Restitution's show closing. Go, you won't be alone. Meanwhile, our Reggae-My-Lytis might be soothed by a trip to UCLA's JazzReggae Festival which continues through Monday, like several of our events. So while on your way to copious amounts of plate-breaking, wrestling, and butt-sex at the Valley Greek Festival , check out Choppercabras' insane bike festival, they have midgets, enough said...though they may be talking about bikes. Explore someone else's Vertigo at Hollywood Forever, and since laughter does make the best medicine, see now if you can get your grubby lil' hands on some Sarah Silverman tickets tonight, she is the funniest person alive and the proceeds go to licking the still gaping wounds left by our government's failure along the Mississippi during Hurricane Katrina. Have fun TACO-fiends, and stay healthy!!
