Friday Night: UCSD is the place to be

Friday, December 4th - The Moviegoers, Girls, We Live Inside, Beaters and more: A night of goodness at UCSD!

If you're looking for something to do to unwind after all that Thanksgiving madness, come up to UCSD Friday, December 4th for a night of art and music. First, stop by the Visual Arts Facility to see the first-year MFA group show, We Live Inside, at the VAF Gallery just off Russell Lane. A reception will be held from 6 - 8, and The Moviegoers are playing a free show in the Performance Space at 7:30. So come grab a drink to start out your night! It's FREE!

Next, you can head off to The Loft to see Girls, the righteous San Francisco indie rock group and SPIN magazine's best new band of 2009. The show starts at 9 and The Morning Benders will be opening. $10 advance, $12 at the door (UCSD students: $5 or pay as you can at the door)

If Girls isn't up your alley, or you want to try and do double duty, you can wander over to the Che Cafe because they've got a full night of music lined up. Abe Vigoda, Blessure Grave, Beaters, No Paws (No Lions), and The Preteens are all on the bill. $8, doors at 8:30, bands at 9.

WHAT: a rad night of art and music at UCSD
WHEN: 6 - 8 for a free art show (think free drinks), 7:30 for The Moviegoers, and 9 for other music/dancing
WHERE: UCSD (VAF Gallery, VAF Performance Space, The Loft, Che Cafe)
HOW MUCH: art show/The Moviegoers free, other shows $8-$12
PARKING: Gilman Parking Structure is your best bet, but if you are broke (or some kind of fitness nut) you can park on Villa
La Jolla Dr. (or other places off campus) and hike it, but give yourself extra time of course.

NOTE: If you're really into experimental sound/video/performance art, you should come by the Visual Arts Facility Performance Space Thursday, 12/3 at 8:00 for 90 minutes of temporal works. Again, it's FREE!
