FILM: Free movie night, folks! '80s fantastical sci-fit takes center stage when The Princess Bride (1987) and Ghostbusters (1984) screens downtown. Free popcorn will be on hand for the hungry; cash bar opens at 6:00PM for the boozy. (There will be a twenty minute intermission between films.)

MUSIC: Described as "nifty string-strewn, jangle-happy xylophone-plonkers," Okie Rosette, stemming from the now-defunct Granfaloon Bus, has a CD release party happening in Hayes Valley tonight. Emily Jane White (solo performer, guitarist, "ghostly melodies") and Winters Fall (local outfit, "mixes folk and country influences with indie-pop sensibilities") open the show.
