Events, Early November

I'll try to get these events in early before I go on my trip:

Oct 31 and Nov 1: a couple of good movies at the Avon Theatre Wed and Thurs: My Kid Could Paint That and Darjeeling Limited.

I'll mention this Nov 14 event because the deadline to sign up is Nov 6:Wednesday, Nov 14, 6– 9 pm. Event sponsored by My Time for Me. "Go Ahead, Make My Day, I Dare Ya! An evening At The Shooting Range." At Forest & Field in Norwalk. $70 per person plus ammunition. You have to be over 18, and RSVP by Nov. 6 to or 203-554-7046.

Now THIS is crazy!!! Basically, you learn to shoot guns. A "mommy and me" sounding event that's all about firing weapons? Cool.

Sat Nov 3: David Brumberg at the Palace Theatre. According to Stamford Center for the Arts' Website, "According to The New York Times David Bromberg "has such control of his audience that he can, at one moment, hold it in his hand with a tender, touching yet funny anecdotal song, and then set it romping and stomping with a raucous bit of raunch. He is electrifying." Sounds like a good review to me, and something worth seeing. Tickets are shockingly reasonable at 25- 35 $.

Friday Nov 2-Sunday Nov 4: Dark Star Festival. I don't even know what to make of this: According to the Fairfield Weekly: "The Northeast's biggest annual electro/synthpop/EBM/industrial music festival. Performers: Subliminal; Absynthesis; Rename; Necessary Response; Code 64. DJs: JET; STALAGMIKE; REXX ARKANA; MOTHRA." It gets weirder: It's held at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa. It's 27 $ for one day, and 85 $ for all three. It looks like Goth music, which I don't even know what that means. I'm just going on stereotypes here.
