It’s just a jump to the left…

If you are (or were) a Berkeley student, chances are this brings back sweet CalSo memories of learning the Time Warp. You may even be so compulsed to finish the line…and then a step to the ri-i-i-ight. You know what, for classics sake, we’re just going to finish it off for you:

Time Warp

Dancing the Time Warp at CalSo is only the tail end of a long-standing Rocky Horror tradition at Cal. The tradition started with taking eager students to an actual midnight showing of the 1975 cult classic film Rocky Horror Picture Show, which sadly fizzled out. But good news, Barely Legal, the cast that put on the show, is still going strong! They strive to spread the Rocky love all throughout the Bay Area — and they’re coming locally very soon.

Guilty Viewing Pleasures: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

This Saturday, November 8th, the “Barely Legal” Rocky Horror Picture Show is coming to the Albany Twin Theater (in Albany), just a short BART ride away! Tickets are only $10 and the show is all ages. But don’t let that stop you from going all out on the partici……..pation. Costumes are allowed and encouraged. In fact, their only rule is that you have to wear something. The rest is up to you. And if you dress to impress in a Rocky-inspired outfit, they say they may even bring you on stage to show it off. And costumes aren’t the only means of participations. “Survival Kits” are sold before the show containing bubbles, noise makers, toilet paper, toast, cards, and an instruction sheet to get you up to speed on when to use each item. It’s sure to be a fun night for both long-time fans and first timers.

If you’re looking for a raunchy and exceptionally entertaining thing to do this weekend, dust off your fishnets and “give yourself over to absolute pleasure” at the Albany Twin.

Spring Break is unfortunately over, but SUPERB will make the transition back to the Berkeley grind hurt a little less with their showing of “Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol” on Friday, April 6 at Wheeler Auditorium. The film will show at 7 p.m. as well as at 9:30 p.m., so those who are night owls can also look forward to a night of action adrenaline.

5612169192_64005ff625Unlike the last movie star who showed his face ‘round these parts, Latin American actor and producer Diego Luna is probably not going to draw the same massive crowd of hysterical young women. Which in all honestly is probably a good thing, seeing as how some of you ladies (and gentleman, since we don’t want hate mail showering Eshleman) seem to be unaware that deafening, maniacal shrieking isn’t flattering … it’s weird. Very, very weird. And scary, quite frankly.

Okay, no, not really. Fine. But thinking about it is the only thing getting us through another week of toil and tedium. This Friday, Sept. 16, catch Santa Barbara-based indie band Gardens and Villa on Lower Sproul at noon with synth-pop songs as enchanting as their name sounds.

Later in the day, for only $3 with a Cal ID ($5 without), watch Super 8 in the faux cinematic Wheeler Hall at 7 or 9 p.m. Between the plush seats, the curtains and the giant screen, you’d be hard-pressed to remember you’re actually in a lecture hall.
