Elvira made the announcement on her Twitter account (yes, even the horror hostess tweets). Elvira had to cancel an appearance at Nightstalkers Scream Park in Excelsior Springs last night.
This will be a bit of a homecoming for Elvira.
Our friends in Austin, Texas' The New Movement comedy troupe will be making a stop in Mission Saturday night at Lucky Brewgrille. Unfortunately, Chris Trew, our favorite bushy bearded Jesus lookalike and future owner of the NBA's New Orleans Hornets, won't be in town. But there's a pretty damn good group joining forces like a league of superheroes to make you laugh your ass off.
Check out the show Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Lucky (5401 Johnson Drive in Mission). Hit The New Movement's Facebook page for more info.
What are the ideas? Hit the library at 6 p.m. to find out.
Live Real, a national initiative that promotes "a people's movement for real food solutions," is holding a brown-bag lunch at the Dole Institute on Friday. Lawrence is one stop on a bus tour that began in Birmingham, Alabama, on August 7 and ends in Detroit on August 18.
Today in news that sounds sort of gross but really isn't gross, I guess, comes word that Massage Envy is organizing a Guinness World Record attempt for most massages given at one time this fall.
Scheduled for Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. at the K, massage therapists from all across this great land are invited to come and rub down some stranger in the parking lot. See? That sounds bad.
The Rev. Mark Kiyimba fled Uganda in March, fearing for his safety after becoming an outspoken opponent of the proposed anti-homosexuality legislation in that East African country. Kiyimba's upcoming appearances in Overland Park this weekend are significant because of Kansas City-based evangelist Lou Engle, who exported his homophobic agenda to Uganda last year, endorsing lawmakers' efforts to lengthen jail
terms and expand the death penalty for gay "crimes."
Kiyimba is now in America, attempting to alert this country to the persecution of gay and lesbian Ugandans (and even the murder of Ugandan gay rights activists such as David Kato). He'll speak three times this weekend, starting Saturday afternoon (May 28) at the Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church in Overland Park.
"Anxiety was pervasive and toxic. We quit believing in ourselves," he says.
Tonight marks the official opening of the multimillion-dollar, multidisciplinary, community-and-family-friendly show, which brings together poets, musicians, visual artists, playwrights and composers from across the country. Fischl calls it "a creative act that expresses hope."
Do you know what a never nude is? Can you name all of Michael Bluth's loves? Do you know what to order at the Bluth Banana Stand? Then you'll want to be at Raglan Road (170 East 14th Street) Wednesday at 8 p.m.
The quiz masters at Geeks Who Drink are bringing Arrested Development trivia to Kansas City (you can RSVP on their Facebook page, but the geeks warn that you better show up early 'cause seating is first come, first served).
Have you ever wanted to ask Savage Love's Dan Savage a question but never gotten around to firing off your query? Now's your chance to ask the man in-person. Savage is coming to the University of Kansas for a talk on April 19.
Savage, who recently started the It Gets Better Project against bullying, will give a talk at the Woodruff Auditorium. I saw him at KU a couple of years ago, and Savage ended up doing more of a Q&A than a talk, so that was pretty sweet.
