Nada Brahma Ensemble

Today, 7 p.m., free

John Natsoulas Gallery

Any guitar with more than six strings is worth seeing. Add being entranced by ambient drone instruments and I’m there. The Nada Brahma Ensemble is familiar to Davis, performing at the Whole Earth Festival six times in the past. These Davis veterans are guaranteeing a night of “Indian Classical Fusion,” so don’t miss out on improvisational music because it literally can’t be heard ever again.


Friday, 8 p.m., $20

Freeborn Hall

Raves are the new school dance. It might not be hard to assume Electronic Music for Change focuses more on advertising than the actual event, but judging from last year’s Unity, the event should be just as epic as the buzz. If you haven’t seen the teasers at the MU Patio at noon this week, check the event out on Facebook or EMC’s website, or read today’s article in Muse for more information.

Art Brut; Princeton

Saturday, 7 p.m., free

Freeborn Hall

Go dressed in your costumes and slutty attire while enjoying the punk rock sounds of Art Brut on Halloween. It’s not like you’ll have anything better to do until 10 p.m. (which is the scheduled time that this event is going to end). Besides, Art Brut is probably dressing up and it’s free! For more information, visit the EC Facebook page or read the preview in Muse.

Minus the Bear

Saturday, 8 p.m., $17

The Boardwalk

The drive to Orangevale might be a bitch but it’s worth it especially if you’re driving only 20 minutes to see Minus the Bear, an indie rock band from Seattle. Scheduled to release their fourth studio album next year, they’ll probably treat the audience with a few unreleased songs. Worth the drive! So check them out along with The Antlers and Twin Tigers.


Deladier Almeida; Rene Martucci; James Chaffee

Friday, 7 p.m., free

John Natsoulas Gallery

Check out the John Natsoulas Gallery’s new exhibition, featuring three artists and continuing through Nov. 28. An opening reception will be held on Friday, after yesterday’s opening.


Purple Noon

Monday, 6 p.m., $5

Mondavi Center, Vanderhoef Studio Theater

The Mondavi Center will be screening an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s The Talented Mr. Ripley in the Vanderhoef Studio Theater. The intimate room will surely provide for a peaceful movie-watching environment.

The Fourth Kind Prescreening

Monday, 7 p.m., free

Regal Cinemas Davis Stadium 5

For those of you who will be suffering with post Halloween depression, the prescreening for The Fourth Kind can be a quick horror fix. NBC Universal and the ASUCD Entertainment Council will host a chance to watch this movie before it comes out in theatres on Nov. 2. Pick up your tickets now available at the EC office and arrive early since seating is limited.

(500) Days of Summer

Tuesday, 6:30 p.m., $1

194 Chemistry

By popular demand, the ASUCD Entertainment council will be showing (500) Days of Summer on Tues. and Wed. For those of you who haven’t seen (500) Days of Summer (shame on you), you’ll have four chances to watch it. And, for those of you who have, you’ll have four more chances to watch it, probably for the (504)th time. So for only a dollar, come watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel duke it out.

2009 Asia Pacific Film Festival

Wednesday to Friday, November 6, 6 p.m., free

6 Olson

Christopher Gardner

Wednesday, 8 p.m., $22.50

I’m sure all of you have heard of the movie The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith, but did you know it was based off of a true story?
