Say Cheddar!Council Watch: Billions and Billions of Bills
Don't blink. If a picture is really worth a thousand words (you knew that was coming), this issue speaks volumes. Thanks to all who entered our annual photo contest!
City councilors wade through a stack of backlogged bills yet are oddly silent on the APD snafu.
Leaving a Footprint
Brush the dust off the Uptown Sector Plan! Coronado Mall wants to transform, at least partially, into a "lifestyle center," but not until the City Council sees an air quality study and someone comes up with a clear definition of "new space."
J. Lo has all a girl could ask for ... all, that is, but a decent record.
With a perfect mix of hard-won emotions, Dear Frankie is a feel-good film that actually feels good.

Sister (407 Central NW) features a night of the newest sounds in the musical genre loosely referred to as “rock and roll” tomorrow night when it hosts regional psychedelic/shoegaze-leaning acts Ballets and Train Conductor. These two Gold House Records recording artists (and former members of Small Flightless Birds) appear in support of their latest, eponymous 12-inch split. In a heady rush of pre-SXSW traffic, they also happen to be performing in close temporal proximity to Boston pop experimentalist Krill and unofficial headliner Ava Luna.
Fronted by Julian Feder and Carlos Hernandez, Ava Luna’s mind-bending electro-funk has been compared to the noisy explorations of Captain Beefheart stirred well with remnants of Aphex Twin. Feder and Hernandez were also involved in producing Krill's latest effort, the effectively jangly Steve Hears Pile in Malden and Bursts into Tears. (Scope a review of Ava Luna’s newest in this week’s Sonic Reducer.) The doors into this trip beyond the yellow brick road swing wide at 8pm, and 5 clams gets you inside.

Alibi Midnight Movie Madness: Journey to the West
Alibi Midnight Movie Madness is back at Guild Cinema for some awesome martial arts entertainment. Stephen Chow, king of the kung fu comedy (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer), contributes this crazed “prequel” to the classic myth of the Monkey King. The film finds a naive young priest named Tang Sanzang (Zhang Wen) trying to save a small village from a trio of troublesome demons. He gets a little assistance in the form of a sexy female demon hunter played by Qi Shu. Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons was the highest-grossing film in China last year. Here’s your chance to check it out in all its over-the-top glory. It shows at 10:30pm on Friday and Saturday. As always Stranger Factory will be there giving out doorprizes. Tickets are $8 general, $6 students.
