Earth Day Party at The DeFoor Centre (1710 DeFoor Ave) tonight, this is the be-all end-all opportunity for networking environmentalists, it sounds like. “Georgia’s premier Earth Day event brings together a diverse group of grassroots environmentalists, devoted philanthropists, and business professionals whose collective goal is to integrate sustainable practices and policies wherever they work, live or play.

Dad’s Garage (1105 Euclid Ave) is showing “Gutenberg! The Musical" Every Thurs/Fri/Sat until May 10th, which is a “super meta two-man musical sendup, a pair of up and coming playwrights perform a live reading of their brand Broadway-esque musical about Johann Gutenberg.” The show is at 8pm, and the wonderful people over at Dad’s Garage have hooked us up with a promo code, buying tickets with the coupon “ATLToDo" will get you 25% off your ticket! Be sure to say thanks!
At 9pm tonight Cinefest is showing a double-feature of E.T. and Candyman for only $5, on real film!

I think Im going to go to 500 Songs for Kids again because it was so much fun last weekend, but the Edgewood Block Party sounds like a blast, and so does the show at the Clermont. If I lived on GSU campus I’d be at Cinefest taking advantage of that free local entertainment though. Don’t think I have enough angst left in my body to do the Taking Back Sunday & The Used show seriously, but it does sound like some good nostalgia, that’s for sure. Let me know what you guys get up to and what turns out to be fun!
