This weekend's pretty much filled to overflowing, so I'm having to kinda pick and choose which events to mention here; this one is obscure as hell but still sounds damn cool, so for the moment, it wins. The 7th Annual Gadabout Traveling Film Festival will be rolling into Houston tonight, Sat., October 25th, around 8PM up at Sedition Books (901 Richmond, just east of Montrose). It's apparently a DIY film festival that features really bizarro indie short films that are reportedly strange, poignant, and funny all that the same time.
Plus, after the films, NY indie-punk band Halo Fauna follow up -- I'm afraid I don't know 'em, sadly, but the fact that they're on Plan-It-X Recs is somewhat promising. There's art, too, a print show of the art of Kristine Virsis of the Justseeds Visual Resistance Artists' Cooperative. And hey, the whole thing's all yours for a mere $5 (voluntary, I think) donation. No booze & no drugs allowed, btw; the venue is drug-free.
Unfortunately for me, I think my evening's already spoken for, but I've been meaning to check out anarchist "infoshop" Sedition Books for years now, particularly since they were hit with a tragic fire in 2007 and finally re-opened at their new location this past July -- they used to be open only sporadic hours (duh: anarchists...), but these days they've apparently got a regular schedule, 12PM-8PM. The place is absolutely unique for Houston, I'd say, and places like that tend to threaten people (again: fucking arson, folks), so visit while you can.
