Pardon the Interruption.
It's often brought up how young girls begin planning their dream weddings from a very early age. For 29-year-old ex-Full House star Mary-Kate Olsen, it turns out that childhood vision included smoking like a train.
Over the weekend, she married 46-year-old French banker Olivier Sarkozy, and the Internet has been having a field day with the fact that some anonymous “insider” reported that the ceremony's decorations included “bowls and bowls filled with cigarettes.”
With a little help from us, your Monday evening won't require as much planning as, say, a wedding — but that's partly based on the fact that all of tonight's options are BYO cigarettes.
The Interrupters at Three Links
Originally under the wing of American Idol judge/record producer Randy Jackson, Los Angeles singer Aimee Allen linked up with a trio of brothers back in 2012 and started ska-leaning punk outfit The Interrupters. The frequent Tim Armstrong collaborators put out a record on the Rancid guitarist's Hellcat label last year, just a few months before opening for Jello Biafra's new band at this same venue. Rude King and Revolucion Oi! open.
Matt Zoller Seitz at The Wild Detectives (Free)
In his book Mad Men: Carousel, New York Magazine critic Matt Zoller Seitz collects all of the essays he penned recapping each and every episode of the series. In honor of the fact that he'll be in person at The Wild Detectives tonight, talking Mad Men with Dallas Morning News critic Chris Vognar, the Oak Cliff literary/coffee hub will be hosting a '60s-themed cocktail party. Award-winning Small Brewpub mixologist Benj Pocta will be on hand making drinks, which will be half-priced for those whose dress fits the theme.
Enter the Dragon at Alamo Drafthouse
In the final film shot before his death, martial arts master Bruce Lee plays — get this! — a martial arts master who goes undercover at a martial arts competition in order to bust a drug-trafficking ring in 1976's Enter the Dragon. Keep your eyes peeled for an early Jackie Chan performance playing an unnamed evil henchman.
