Friday Music âÄî Basilica Block Party: Weezer, Spoon Basilica of St. Mary 88 17th Street N., Mpls 9 p.m. $40 âÄî $150 Weezer hasnâÄôt made a decent record in a long, long time, but their live show could be a blast provided they play hits off âÄúPinkertonâÄù and the like. Half-Japanese girls, beware. Saturday Film âÄî âÄúPredatorsâÄù Area theaters The âÄùPredatorâÄù franchise is by no means a critically acclaimed one, but who doesnâÄôt enjoy watching these dreadlocked aliens letting countless pints of blood? The new movie has some decent talent in it, and it comes from Robert RodriguezâÄôs studio, so it could actually be good. Besides, thereâÄôs nothing better to do. Sunday Music âÄî Star Wars: In Concert Xcel Energy Center 199 W. Kellogg Blvd. 3 p.m., 7 p.m. $24.50 âÄî $75 Love âÄùStar Wars?âÄù Love orchestras? Well, youâÄôre in luck, because the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is coming to St. Paul to perform John WilliamsâÄô legendary scores. Just make sure your mom can give you a ride, nerdlinger. Culture to Consume Read this: The final installment of the âÄùScott PilgrimâÄù series comes out July 20, which means now is the perfect time to brush up on old volumes. If you havenâÄôt read âÄúScott PilgrimâÄù yet, quit your job and do so immediately. Listen to this: Big Boi released a new album, which I have not listened to yet, but will recommend solely based on the amazing title: âÄúSir Lucious Left Foot âĦ The Son of Chico Dusty.âÄù Watch this: By the grace of the cable gods, âÄùFuturamaâÄù s back on TV. Better watch now; who knows when it will disappear for good. New episodes air Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Comedy Central. Drink this: HereâÄôs another thing IâÄôm going to recommend based on the hilarious name alone: A Kick in the Crotch. Take one and one-half ounces of vodka, one ounce blue Curacao and one and one-half ounces of cranberry juice and mix it in a shot glass. My guess is that itâÄôs much better than actually being kicked in the crotch. Eat this: Sonic now offers the Footlong Quarter Pound Coney. ItâÄôs 12 inches of heart-stopping deliciousness. Click this: I donâÄôt know whoâÄôs in charge of advertising over at Old Spice, but they need to keep it up. TheyâÄôre newest commercial is one of their best: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLTIowBF0kE&feature=player_embedded
