Yesterday Matt made a harrowing observation: On Friday December 3rd, The Presidents of the United States of America are playing at The Beta Bar AND Rushmore is playing as the free midnight movie that night at the SLB.


I've seen Rushmore before, but not on the big screen. I haven't seen the Presidents live.

Rushmore is free, and that is good. The Presidents are $13 in advance, $15 the day of, which is somewhat reasonable.

The Presidents have better than decent local band Believe in Toledo, and decent band The Drake Equation opening for them. Before Rushmore is a showing of Anchorman. However, Rushmore does have Bill Murray. And that funny, quirky Jason Schwartzman.

The concert starts at 9:30 PM, but they usually don't start on time and there is another opening band, Say Anything. So it will most definitely go past midnight.

And then there's always the dilemma of going to the midnight movie or breakfast for a buck. What to do?

  1. I think you just have to decide whether you would rather hear some great live music, or watch a great movie. $15 is a lot different than free, too.

    When I was your age, we didn't even HAVE an SLB, much less free movies! Except sometimes at the what-do-you-call-it auditorium. And they were all crappy movies like "Jaws" or "Air Bud 7: Release the Shenanigans". And we didn't have the Beta Bar. We had the Cow Haus. And we didn't have POTUSA. We had Sir Mix-A-Lot, and Dick Dale!
