DANCE: Dance revue "Pichet Klunchun and Myself" sounds exciting, but deeply complicated. It's jam-packed with stuff like conceptual choreography, Eurocentrism, multiculturalism, globalization, organic reflection, exotic foreign customs, and people who have circumflexes in their names. It simply boggles the mind. Really, just look at that shit on the right. What are on Earth are they even doing? Whatever it is, it involves neither turkey nor lurkey. Fortunately, SF Weekly's Tara Jepsen boils down tonight's modern dance performance perfectly as "Laverne and Shirley meets Perfect Strangers meets Merce Cunningham."

FILM: Kevin Epps' documentary The Black Rock: The Untold Story of the Black Experience on Alcatraz "chronicles the role of African-Americans at Alcatraz, the first super-maximum security prison, and examines the lives of a few African-American prisoners who were important figures in the history of 'The Rock" from the 1930s to the 1960s." Yay!
