Have Umlauts Of Fun With Jens Lekman At The Granada.

Oh man, we got so wrapped up in our mimosa-filled Sunday fun-day day-drinking routine, we forgot all about Veterans Day! It's time to make up for it. Big time. Tonight, take a serviceman to a limited edition movie screening or a concert, why don't ya?

Better late than never.

The Doors – Live at the Bowl '68 at The Magnolia
The Doors' 1968 performance at the Hollywood Bowl is said to be one of the band's finest performances. Tonight only at 7 p.m, The Magnolia is showing a newly-restored film version of the concert, including a few numbers thought to be long lost.

Jens Lekman at Granada Theater
Though critically-admired globally and universally-adored in his home country of Sweden, Lekman maintains a below-average celebrity profile stateside. With his recently-released album, I Know What Love Isn't, and its current supporting tour, odds are his astonishing wit and batch of well-crafted pop tunes will win over a wide swath of new fans.

Cotton Candy: The Movie at Double Wide
In the late '70s, Ron Howard filmed the now cult-classic Cotton Candy at the Town East mall. Since it was never commercially released, VHS copies of the film are, as one might expect, extremely difficult to come across. Tonight at Double Wide, though, Mr. Rid will show off a copy he recorded off the television in 1978 — complete with the cheesy old commercials and everything!

Chinese Lantern Festival at Fair Park
While 30 coupons $15 isn't exactly cheap, it;s well worth it to ogle the Chinese Lantern Festival. The festival, which debuted at the State Fair, was one of the most brilliantly-lit displays the Fair Park has ever seen. And, in a year where Big Tex made history for a lighted display of his own, that's really saying something. By popular demand, the festival's post-Fair encore run goes through January, so enjoy it while you still (thankfully) can.
