"History is always happening" at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site
LR HORROR PICTURE SHOW END OF THE WORLD PARTY
8 p.m. Lulav. $30.
As previously noted, the end of the world is scheduled for Dec. 21. While I tend to think it's just the day that whoever came up with the Mayan calendar finally threw down his pen and said, "Ah, screw it. Surely the world won't last that long!" it's got the tinfoil-hat brigades all in a tizzy.
Then again, you never know.
Luckily for us, no matter how it all turns out, the Mayans were smart enough to schedule the end of the world for a Friday night, which makes it a great excuse to party. One of the hottest tickets in town for the Big Adios is sure to be the Little Rock Film Festival's End of the World Party at Lulav.
The $30 entry fee — which goes to benefit the LRFF's second-annual Little Rock Horror Picture Show — entitles you to all the food and drink you can stuff into your gibbering, tear-streaked face before you're vaporized, with musical accompaniment by The Funkanites.
Also on hand will be fun stuff like Apocalypse-themed drink specials, a photo booth, and a confessional where you can unburden your soul before you wobble un-gently into that Good Night. Please note: The LRFF will offer no refunds if the world doesn't, in fact, disappear up its own ass at midnight, so don't overdraw your checking account to buy those tickets, kids.
The thing about "portable"/"recreate-able" installation art is that it kind of invalidates the whole concept…
Does the work become a "sculptural piece"? (And is the flat wall, the video?)
