Saturday, June 7 · Doors 9:00 PM at Mezzanine
Things start off with Fortapàsc tonight and end with the intense Vincere (nobody doesn’t love this film) on Sunday, November 22. And they’ll have nine more movies in between, seven of which are up for the City of Florence Award, so check it out and get your tickets now. Plus, free four hour parking at any of the Embarcadero Center parking garages. Bonus!
Benito Mussolini’s squadristi are all over the place in Vincere, the film from Marco Bellocchio. (It turns out that Mussolini secretly got the equivalent of $10,000 a week (as a reporter!) from British MI-5 back in the day – that might have played a part in his political transformation, which features prominently in Vincere. Just saying. Anyway…)
See you there!

Hey, you know what you ought to be doing next week on the evening of Tuesday, October 20? You ought to be going to the Mezzanine at Triple Four Jessie in the SoMA to see The Most Interesting Show in the World.
People, the price is right on this one – the only question is how much work it’s going to be for you to get in. The whole shebang will be run by this buzz-saw-wielding fellow, Jim Rose:
And you’ll get to see the versatile Melody Sweets – probably not as Tina Turner…
…nor as a luau dancer…
How do you get tickets? I don’t know, but figuring that out will be something to work on this week, in’nt?
All the deets so far:
Upscale, Offbeat Variety Show is Inspired by the Iconic ‘The Most Interesting Man in the World’ Campaign
Dos Equis today announced the return of “The Most Interesting Show in the World” tour (MISW), a one-of-a-kind, touring upscale, offbeat variety show inspired by the award-winning “The Most Interesting Man in the World” campaign. This year’s MISW will once again feature a menagerie of multinational performers, including acrobats, beatboxers, burlesque performers, contortionists, crossbow marksmen and daredevils that will excite and delight audiences in 16 cities from coast to coast.
“We had great consumer response to the launch of the Most Interesting Show in the World last year and are focused on building upon that success to create an even more dynamic and unique brand experience,” said Paul Smailes, brand director for Dos Equis. “We’re bringing together engaging new entertainers and previous fan favorites to thrill consumers and continue to reinforce Dos Equis as the champion of interesting.”
Angelo Moore, poet, spoken word performer, saxophonist and founding member of the influential punk rock band “Fishbone,” will serve as the show’s host and MC.
Beginning with San Francisco on Oct. 20, the MISW will travel from the West Coast to the East Coast and make 16 tour stops, including shows in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York, enthralling audiences at upscale nightlife venues across the country with a unique blend of humor, seductiveness and visual entertainment.
New York-based Mirrorball is the experiential marketing agency in charge of the development and implementation of the multi-award winning MISW tour.
The show is written and produced by Randy Weiner and Weiner Entertainment Group. Weiner is the creator of the “The Donkey Show,” a variety program that has toured New York, London, Madrid and Seoul, as well as the Las Vegas show “Beacher’s Madhouse.”
The MISW tour will be supported by online media and local in-market promotions.
All MISW attendees must be 21 or over.

Soul Slams I, II, and III ended without a clear winner, but tomorrow, well, things should be different. I mean if Michael Jackson can’t win Soul Slam IV this year, of all years, well, then he never will. Now, the King of Pop has the height but Prince, he has the reach so keep that in mind tomorrow night when you’re wagering at the musical squared circle that is the Mezzanine at Triple Four Jessie in the SoMA, doors at 9:00 PM.

Super bon bon, Super bon bon.
