Mikey G's Weekend Entertainment Picks

Posted By on Fri, Apr 6, 2007 at 2:10 PM

Calla plays the Grog Shop on Sunday
This weekend's top arts and entertainment picks around town, from the guy who's paid to pick them: Friday: Today's Sushi Happy Hour at Sunset Lounge features more than 15 delicacies -- like shrimp, spicy-tuna, and eel-avocado rolls. Best of all, the club also offers cheap martinis to wash down all that raw fish. Saturday: Local filmmaker Brian Lawlor is holding screen tests today for Welcome to Cretonville: Legend of the Melonheads, a horror movie he plans to start shooting next weekend in Kirtland. The film revolves around Bigfoot-like creatures called Melonheads that hang out in Lake County. Specifically, Lawlor's looking for folks who can do "perky cheerleader" or "march-band nerd." Thesps should get to North Coast Casting by 3 p.m. Sunday: New York City indie-rockers Calla usually shape their music around high-concept pitches: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly crossed with Blade Runner, Dr. John meets Bj�rk. But on the new Strength in Numbers, the band turned to its own back catalog for inspiration. It's a gloriously loud record that wraps up a decade of sound. Should be quite a treat onstage. Check 'em out at the Grog Shop tonight. --Michael Gallucci
