land

A lost baby brontosaurus joins a mismatched group of fellow dino strays; together they face down T-Rexes and other dangers while learning the value of inter-species friendship. Yet this prehistoric BAMBI offers more than cheap nostalgia – it has a delicate visual beauty and a dark poignancy all its own, which you’re finally old enough to appreciate.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.

Second Annual Pokémon Battle Night

splashattackfb0Alienor Leon ’14 wants you to be the very best that no-one ever was. To catch them is your real test, and to train them is your cause:

It’s time for Wesabi’s Pokémon Battle Night!

We also encourage you to bring your own Pokémon games so you can battle your own Pokémon and trade.

This is a casual event, so feel free to stop by at any time this Friday! Refreshments will be served.

Time: 6 – 10 pm

Keith Fullerton Whitman and Tim Rovinelli @ BuHo

kfw

From Daniel Nass ’13:

Come to BuHo on Thursday night to hear a pair of ear- and mind-bending electronic musicians!

Modular synth master Keith Fullerton Whitman is a Boston-based musician whose work encompasses generative rhythms, rich textures, and dense drones. Pitchfork’s Mark Richardson describes his recent output as “electronic music that, while drawing heavily from the past, also sounds like nothing else out there now.”

Providence-based DIY noisemaker Tim Rovinelli (Splatterpuss, House Party) summons shifting tapestries of raw sound from arcane homemade circuits.

Time: 10 P.M.
Date: Thursday, March 28
Location: Buddhist House (356 Wash)
Cost: Free
