Stuff to do this weekend

albany roller derby poster march 2008+ It's the last Friday of the month, so that means it's Troy Night Out. You might want to check out Ethan Bach's documentary about the lives of transgender people while you're there. There's also going to be a screening of "Art Not Terrorism," which is about the situation surrounding Wafaa Bilal's "Virtual Jihadi." And don't forget the official unofficial after party.

+ The Albany All-Stars Roller Derby is back at the Washington Avenue Armory on Saturday. (AOA item about the roller derby.)

+ The East Regional of the NCAA hockey tournament is at the TU Center this weekend. #2 St. Cloud State takes on #3 Clarkson at 4 pm this afternoon, followed by #1 Michigan vs. #4 Niagara at 7 pm. The regional final is Saturday at 7 pm. Tickets are $82 for all three games and $46 for one session.

+ If you're looking to catch a movie, Married Life might be worth a try at the Spectrum. The Ira Sachs film has been described as a mix of Douglas Sirk melodrama and Hitchcock suspense. The reviews have been "generally favorable" and it has a great cast: Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, Rachael McAdams and Pierce Brosnan.

+ Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches, Juno soundtrack) is playing a benefit for The Free School April 9. Wait, that's not this weekend! Right, but you gotta buy tickets this Saturday at the Capital District Federation of Ideas between 10 and 4. Tickets are $20.


The "official unofficial" afterparty sounds awesome! It's too bad I can't go. Please keep an eye out for next night out in case they have another one.

You totally forgot the unveiling of the new issue of Upstate Magazine. It's a party sorta thing, and it's on Lark street at the UAG gallery, tomorrow night at 8pm. You know, for all those style-phobes out there.
