THIS FRIDAY NIGHT'S SoWeBeaux Arts Ball at the Lithuanian Hall should be a hoot and a half with performances by the Black Cherry Puppets and music by the Hula Monsters and the Pleasant Livers. It's black tie or masquerade, and we hear some of the costumes at past balls have been simply outrageous. Call at 566-5656 for reservations or pay $12 at the door. The ball is a prelude to the annual SoWeBo festival, which takes place May 26.
