Friday

Weekend Guide

December 03, 2009

THE NIGHT OF 100 ELVISES: The Elvis invasion actually takes place over two nights and includes appearances by, well, lots of Elvii at the Lithuanian Hall, 851-853 Hollins St. You should already have your tickets, since Saturday's event is sold out and Friday's will probably be by the time you read this. Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday. The event starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $55 in advance. Go to nightof100elvises.com.

WARREN SEELIG: TEXTILE PER SE: This retrospective features textile-based constructions by fiber artist Warren Seelig at Maryland Institute College of Art's Fox Building at 1303 W. Mount Royal Ave. An opening reception takes place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The show runs through March 14 in the Meyerhoff and Decker galleries. The event is free. Go to mica.edu.

FUTURE SHOCK: The 14Karat Cabaret presents this film series created by Nineteen23, which features five short films from the 1960s and 1970s that presented eerily apt predictions about our present situation. Themes range from urban blight to an escapist drug culture. Screenings are at Maryland Art Place, 218 W. Saratoga St., at 9 p.m. Tickets are $6. Call 410-962-8565 or go to normals.com/14k.html.

A CINEMATIC CELEBRATION OF EDGAR ALLAN POE: Many filmmakers have attempted to re-create Edgar Allan Poe's macabre vision on film. When the BMA and the 48 Hour Film Project collaborate, local filmmakers such as Rahne Alexander and Jim Lucio take a stab at creating Poe-themed shorts. The free Friday screenings begin at 8 p.m. at the BMA, 10 Art Museum Drive. Call 443-573-1700 or go to artbma.org.

ENCHANTED: A MEDIEVAL FANTASY: Consider the Walters Art Museum, 600 N. Charles St., a potential happy-hour destination. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., this edition of the museum's free First Friday event includes a specialty cocktail called the monk's mead, live music by the Dahlia Flute Ensemble and high-level chess competitions by the UMBC chess team. Call 410-547-9000 or go to thewalters.org.
