Friday

Dosh and his friends have been playing Cedar show for 10 years now and you can help them celebrate. [TIX] Do you take Star Wars over Star Trek? Think the new one is as good as the reviews are saying? How can you possibly do that? Well, if so you should definitely go see the In A Galaxy Far, Far Away . . . at Gamut Gallery that runs all weekend and free on Friday. (Pictured)  (93% fresh on the new Star Wars has to be a mistake.) [INFO]
