(Editor’s note: You probably noticed that we jumped the gun on this last week because we were so excited. The Defenders with Andy Sturdevant takes place at the Trylon TONIGHT so check it out!)

The Defenders series at the Trylon is one of our favorites, because we love obscure movies and basically spend our free time doing our own versions of the defenders. If you haven’t been, The Defenders gives a local personality the chance to choose a film to be screened, and then defends his or her choice. Tonight Andy Sturdevant is the guest of honor. You, of course, know him as an artist, writer, and general man about town whose work has appeared pretty much everywhere. We are very intrigued to find out what Sturdevant chose as his film, because when it comes from his mind you have no idea what to expect. 7 p.m. $8 —EDJ
