Outta the Burbs: Celebrate Lebowski in June

June is non-officially the Bay Area's month of Lebowski, which is great because it coincides with my birthday but terrible because I hate making white russians at work.

First off, because I want you know in time to check out opening night, is "Quentin vs. Coen: An Art Show Tribute to Tarantino and the Brothers." The opening reception, held this Thursday night (June 2nd) from 4-10pm, will be your first chance to view the mix of original paintings and affordable prints gathered into an homage to the two great directing teams. Opening night, expect free signed and numbered Big Lebowski prints to the first 50 to arrive, with approximately 100 mini prints being handed out throughout the night. While the show runs through the 30th, the only time to catch free arty swag is during the opening, so cut work early and book your ass up to San Francisco.

And in second but no less awesome news, Primitive Screwheads is presenting "Much Ado About Lebowski," a "live staged parody about a man named Sir Geoffery of Lebowski, who lived a simple, humble life until the day he was mistaken for Geoffery of Lebrowski. On that day, one man's quiet life turns into utter chaos full of kidnappings, escaped prisoners, rug peeing, theatrical porn, and a severed toe." The show will blend old Elizabethan text with the Coen Brothers' Big Lebowski (and Raising Arizona) to produce a one-of-a-kind interpretation of the Big Lebowski, as "writ by William Shakespeare."
Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in June. 
Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm. 
$20 advance, $25 at the door.
2050 Bryant at 18th, San Francisco
