Elvira, the Seahawks and a film TONIGHT

Item 1: TONIGHT at the Historic University Theater is the Seattle premiere of RetarDEAD (it's the sequel to Monsturd; perhaps you've seen the posters in our front windows), featuring Jello Biafra and a slew of notable Northwest musicians. The show starts at 7pm, click over here for all the details. Item 2: We hope you've all been enjoying films at the Seattle Lesbian &Gay Film Festival. Closing night is this Sunday the 26th at 6:30 pm at the King Cat Theater (whoo! it's back!) with an appearence by none other than ELVIRA! She'll be there chatting with the underground drag phenomenon Peaches Christ in an on-stage interview before a screening of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. There's also a Black Cat Ball extravaganza at the Pan Pacific Hotel that night with food, beverages and glamour a plenty. We can't think of a better way to get into the Halloween spirit. Item 3: Several Scarecrow staffers went all nerd out for the 10th Anniversary Edition of Sports Night, Aaron Sorkin's first foray into the television world (soon after he created West Wing). Having practically worn out our bare bones DVD set, we welcomed the new release that includes new interviews, commentaries, gag reels and more. To celebrate the re-release of a show that's about a show about sports that isn't about sports at all, we're giving away two tickets to the November 16th SEAHAWKS game vs. the Arizona Cardinals (thanks to the folks at Shout! Factory for helping us get our hands on such rare items). Head to the front counter and fill out an entry form today--we'll pick the winner on Election Eve. If you've never heard of Sports Night, we've got it for rent in the New Releases now. If you're a fan of West Wing or just appreciate quality writing you're in for a treat. Item 4: It recently came to our attention that despite being available on DVD for a full week now, Yo Gabba Gabba: The Dancey Dance Bunch has yet to be rented. Parents of preschoolers, you should check this out. It's 99 minutes of quality entertainment provided by folks like Mark Mothersbaugh, Biz Markie, Elijiah Wood and some colorful puppets. It's on the last shelf of the Family New Releases.
