You can’t hide from the cold forever.

Kool Keith is in town tonight and he’s playing Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, 1215 20th St.

The show is 21+ and starts with Prince Of Weed, Kosha Dillz and J.O.B.  at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15-25.


This evening at the Denver Art Museum, 100 W. 14th Ave. Parkway, they’re showing “Edge of Alchemy,” a film by Stacey Steers.

Here’s the DAM’s description, since it feels wrong to paraphrase something this mystifying:

In this handmade film, the actors Mary Pickford and Janet Gaynor are each seamlessly appropriated from their early silent features and cast into a surreal epic with an upending of the Frankenstein story and an undercurrent of hive collapse. Edge of Alchemy is the third in a trilogy examining women’s inner worlds. The film takes shadows of the past and bridges the uncanny and the dire with startling presence and emotional resonance. The project is constructed from over 5,000 handmade collages, each photographed with 35mm film stock. Music by the Polish composer Lech Jankowski.

It’s playing at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for nonmembers.

 


Hunker down at Grandma’s House, 1710 S. Broadway, on this freezing night and show off your Mario Kart skills.

The N64 tournament lasts from 7 to 10 p.m. and the winner takes home a growler of beer.
