LIVE MUSIC: Parenthetically named '80s pop outfit Was (Not Was) is known for the song, "Walk the Dinosaur" And that ditty? Went a little something like this: "Open the door, get on the floor/Everybody walk the dinosaur/Boom boom acka-lacka lacka boom." Bring your favorite Gen-Xer to hear them live at Cafe Du Nord.
*FILM: Just in time to make you feel less bad about being single on Valentine's Day is Woody Allen's . Known for being one of the most popular and smartest romantic comedies ever put on film, oddly enough, it lacks the proper romcom happy ending. Screens at The Red Vic.
READING: Our favorite sex and pornography enthusiast, Susie Bright -- the woman who personally taught us to love the cumshot -- appears in person at Modern Times Books to read a new piece from her anthology, The Best American Erotica 2008. Although she's widely regarded as "a pioneer in the study of sexual thought and practice," Bright is also a hoot when it comes to pop-culture, politics, gossip, TV, and good old-fashion shit talking.
COMEDY: The hilariously vulgar Ali Wong headlines tonight's Laugh Orgy comedy showcase at Grant & Green. Max Curry, Beth Schuman, Rolly Moe, Nathan Jackson, Joe Gorman, Kevin O'Shea, and more also take turns at the mic.
