Yee-haw! The weekend is here. Nooga.com checks all the options and gives you our best bets for the top five.
This three-day-long film project is presented by the Association for Visual Arts. It gives professional and aspiring filmmakers an opportunity to participate in a much larger work of community art. Want to participate? Bring a camera—your iPhone works, too—and show up at the Walker Pavilion in Coolidge Park at 5 p.m. You will then be given a theme on which to shoot five 30-second clips. That’s what you'll do for the next 24 hours. On Saturday at 5 p.m., footage will be collected; editing teams will begin to edit the footage; local bands will compose original scores. Everybody will gather—including the public—at Track 29 on Sunday night for the big reveal party.
When: Friday-Sunday, Sept. 27-29
Where: 150 River St. on Friday and Saturday and 1400 Market St. on Sunday
How much: $10-$15 to participate, $15 for the show
Futurebirds/Belle Adair/The Bohannons
Music is a bit light this week (don’t worry, October gets crazy), but we do have a great Friday night show at JJ’s Bohemia. We wrote earlier this week about Belle Adair. Fans of Wilco and early Beck will go nuts for this band. Belle Adair serves as the sandwich between the fantastic Futurebirds from Athens, Ga., and our local boys The Bohannons. You choices in music might be lacking this week, but this concert alone makes up for it. Don’t miss out.
When: Friday, Sept. 27, 10 p.m.
Where: 231 E. M.L. King Blvd.
How much: $5-$10
Movies at Center Park
We end the Movies at Center Park series with an all-time classic film. "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" features our hero, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), in a search for the holy grail. When his father, Dr. Henry Jones (Sean Connery), goes missing, the plot begins to thicken. For families, this isn’t the movie where that guy gets his heart ripped out. That was "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom." You got this. For music, Function: with a "C" will perform.
When: Saturday, Sept. 28, 7 p.m.
Where: 728 Market St.
How much: Free
Wine over Water
