Weekend Scenester Picks: 3D Vulgarity, Bazan, Hamburger, and Guy Fawkes!

Readers, we've always been consistent in our views of 3D, maintaining that it should be used solely for exploitation and hurling ridiculous shit at the audience and never for "artistic" cinematic purposes. So we're more than okay with the prospect of A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas, which opens this weekend (despite the fact that it's still two fucking months before Christmas). The AV Club writes:

"Why not take advantage of 3-D by having Danny Trejo ejaculate on a Christmas tree in all three dimensions?"

Why not indeed! We'll see you at the multiplex.

But what shows should you hit this weekend? The Generals are at the Replay tonight. It's damn near impossible to find them on the interweb (we gave up after multiple attempts), but if you're hip you probably already know all you need to know. And Panda Circus is at the Jackpot. Didn't they win the Farmer's Ball?

Saturday brings David Bazan to the Bottleneck (Chip: "That's the dude who was in the Christian band, right? Weren't they called White Lion?"). And don't forget Neil Hamburger at the Jackpot on Saturday (Chip: "Isn't he one of those comedians who's funny because he isn't funny? I don't get it.").

As for us, we'll be at the annual Eastside Guy Fawkes party on Saturday. Who will be the effigy this year? Brownback? Coach Gill? Doug Compt.n?

And isn't it cool that Guy Fawkes masks are the official masks of the Occupy movements? Anarchy is so hip right now!
