Editorial Review

The period right after New Year's Eve is traditionally the slowest time of year for live music. But that doesn't mean there's nothing going on. The Black Cat kicks off its annual Drink and a Movie series: Four nights of free double features and themed drink specials on the back stage. The series kicks off with "Best Worst Movies" on Sunday night -- think "Showgirls" and "Troll II" paired with $3 "Shots of Shame." Kung-Fu flicks and $3 grasshopper cocktails follow on Monday, the ever-popular John Hughes films and $5 mimosas featured on Tuesday, and everything wraps up with 1930s black-and-white "Keep it Classy" films and $5 Tanqueray and tonics on Wednesday. Doors open at 8:30 nightly; check out the recently redesigned Black Cat Web site for trailers and more information.
