FILM: What with hitting theaters this Friday, the home-invasion horror genre is sure to be the next big thing (we look forward to the The House on the Edge of the Park remake). While it tanked in wide-release, check out Funny Games, which features Naomi Watts and Tim Roth being held hostage in their home by two sexy psychotic youths. Fun!

7:15 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. // Red Vic (1727 Haight) // $8.50

RADIO: California Music Box with Patrick Simms on Pirate Cat Radio features a live performance/interview with J. Byrd Hosch and the Tater Trio. Come down and watch the show live or listen to it on the radio. The choice is yours.
