A-List Only: Charade

Charade

Celebrate the absolute best in cinema all January-long with The Trylon’s incredible new series The A-List, which is already underway with Charade. The Audrey Hepburn and Walter Matthau romantic-comedy is a masterpiece of bright 60s film-making, from the running jokes to the to-die-for fashion. The rest of the series includes heavy hitters like La Dolce Vita, Clue, Mulholland Drive, Dr. Strangelove, and more. Note: If you have a screening you’re interested in, get those tickets early. Tuesday, 7 & 9 PM. $8.Curt Stanski

We give this one our top pick for the week and thus a little trophy! It sounds almost too good to be true: Members of local powerhouse bands including punks Kitten Forever, next gen Riot Grrrls Bruise Violet, garage poppers Tony Peachka, and more have come together to form a super group of sorts, and they’re playing a debut show with France Camp, Secrets fav Devata Daun, and Sauna. We look forward to telling people a year or five from now, “Yeah, we went to the first ever Scrunchies show, it was amazing.” 7:30 PM. $8 advance, $10 door. —Hank Stacks

Reading: David Housewright + Darkness Sing Me A Song

darkness sing me a song

Are we such celebrators of our locale that that we’ll bite on anything that takes place in Twincy? No! Well, some. But a detective story set in MPLS + STPL involving a “doyenne of a socially prominent family of great wealth” will definitely worth celebrating. We can’t wait to burn through David Housewright‘s new Darkness Sing Me A Song and hear more from the Edgar Award-winning author himself at the crime lair Once Upon A Crime. Tuesday, 7 PM.
