Wednesday, August 3 In Our Name: This film follows Suzi, a female British soldier home from Iraq and suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Haunted by an Iraqi child’s death, she becomes obsessively protective of her own daughter, eventually putting her in grave danger. This is the last night of its run at the Balboa Theatre!
Wednesday, August 3 Meet the Distiller: Hudson Whiskey Tasting: Hudson Whiskey likes to say that the Industrial Revolution ends at their driveway, but they’re flying all the way from New York to meet with 18 Reasons! Join them for a night of whiskey, stories, and pre-steam engine fun. This is a rare chance to learn from the horses mouth!
Friday, August 5 Killing My Lobster 2011 Prom: Enchantment Under the Sea: This is a fundraiser to keep improv group Killing My Lobster’s programming going strong! Hosted by MC Jelly D, KML Prom features food by Zagat-rated SF Favorite Tonayense, music by Cole (oWNERSHIP), handmade corsages and tiaras available, and a silent auction
Saturday, August 6 Grant Morrison SUPERGODS Signing and Celebration: Grant Morrison (who lists Superman, Judge Dredd, 2000 AD, Spawn, Kill Your Boyfriend and really too many others to list under his accomplishments) will be at the Isotope autographing copies of his new book Supergods.
Saturday, August 6 Regional Bias: A Celebration of Bay Area Music and Culture: Regional Bias is a huge celebration of the things that make living in the Bay Area special. Check out some of the best bands that the Bay Area has to offer — Little Wings, Royal Baths (Farewell Show!), White Cloud, and Sea of Bees — while supporting The Bay Bridged.
Saturday, August 6 Vegan Pig Roast: A Garden Butchery Cooking Series: Drawing inspiration from the nose-to-tail eating of a pig roast, Homespun applies this common sense and interesting approach to the garden, using all of what we kill, from stem-to-root, in order to respect the plants that nourish us.
