Weekly What To Do: Reality Gets Messy

Splatoon Mess Fest mixed with some Reality by director Quentin Dupieux might solve your weekend. What will fix mine is probably trying to get more festivities with the site and checking in if the Downtown Independent isn't going out of business, because they don't have a calendar up of events. I really like the venue, but the last thing they showed was the Naruto movie a while ago.
