We have to wait another week to see Daniel Radcliffe on the big screen. In the meantime, get your fantasy/sci-fi film fix Saturday at the Machinima Film Festival at MMI. "Machinima, derived from the words 'machine' and 'cinema,' is the process of making animated movies using the software engines and imagery of video games."
You can discuss how Machinima has rocked your world over Kabobs and other goodies at the Kabob Cafe on Steinway. Savortooth says it's good, and she hasn't steered me wrong, yet.
Sunday we can support our local Astoria filmakers and check up on The not-quite-new-anymore Sparrow. They're actually raising money for their film which I think is both creative and funny. Regardless, you can catch my favorite bluegrass act Brownbird Rudy Relic and get yourself a "limited edition" T-shirt in progress. And hope to Vishnu they've done something with that awning. Event starts at 8, music at 9.
If you hate The Sparrow's awning so much that you have the skip the film fundraiser, you have another option. At 7 you can catch lic bar's second blues event in the series.
What ever happened to Thursday and Friday?
