Friday, March 19

Antichrist

Duke Energy Theatre

Chaos is to be expected in Lars von Trier's Antichrist. Having debuted at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, the flick was quickly regarded for its sexual violence. Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe play a couple who retreats to a cabin in the woods after the death of their infant child - who, by the way, fell from a two-story building while the couple was having sex ... Yikes! But, rather than gaining renewal from their grief through nature, things end up going from bad to worse.

Art Julia’s Coffee will have an artists reception for its March exhibit, titled Artists of The Artisan Galleries & Learning Studio tonight. The exhibit includes art by local artists Tina Steele Penn, John Eft, Jay Flynn, Scott Partridge, Alice Mayer and Sandy Siepert. It also raises funds for the Critical Home Repair Initiative. more...

Music Pop singer/songwriter Ben Folds will rock it piano-style during his perform at The Fillmore tonight. With Zach Williams. more...

3rd Annual Sirens and Shields

The Pavilion at EpiCentre

It's time to do your part during the 3rd Annual Sirens and Shields, an auction where firefighters, police, and other first responders come together for your bidding pleasure. At the event hors d'oeuvres will be served and an array of items will be up for grabs. But, best of all, you get your chance to be a hero, as proceeds raised from the event go to the Greater Carolinas Chapter of the American Red Cross and local police (CMPD) and firefighters (CFD).

Theater Children’s Theatre of Charlotte is typically associated with one thing ... children. But that’s not the case tonight when the theater company hosts its special 21-and-up Treasure Island Pirate Party. Dress in your pirate best and enjoy appetizers, drinks and giveaways during the reception. To follow is a performance of Ken Ludwig’s play Treasure Island, adapted from Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel. And, you don’t have to worry about any noisy little kids ruining it for you. Don’t forget your IDs! more...

Food At Cyros Sushi and Sake specialty rolls pack heat, like the Hamachi Jalapeno roll and the Fiery Tuna roll. Sauces are prime ingredients of most of Cyros signature rolls. But, the non-adventurous need not worry, as they have traditional items on the menu too. more...

A Streetcar Named Desire

Cruel intentions are crucial in Tennessee Williams' beloved work, A Streetcar Named Desire. Grappling the drama is Theatre Charlotte, which is sweeping its stage with the story of a delicate Southern sweetheart, Blanche Dubois (played by Paula Baldwin), who has her chances at happiness destroyed by her evil brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski (played by JR Aducci).

Sports Spring Slalom Races continue today at the US National Whitewater Center. The fastest boat down the course with the least penalties in each class wins. more...
