We interrupt our regular roundup of nightlife happenings for a public-service announcement: The next time you're considering driving drunk, call the new San Diego start-up Rides by Request instead. Download the iPhone app or text them your address. Two friendly European-bokids show up, and one drives your car while the other comes along to retrieve the driver. Unlike calling a cab, there's no annoying car-wrangling the next day.
We now return you to our previously scheduled programming:
Broke but Stoked @ Til Two Club: Sarah Jane and Cara Babbabooey have rounded up a ton of artists and bands for a free “artsy kinda thing” from 8 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, featuring live music by The Lumps, The Kabbs, Space Nature and Roach Spit; the official release of the Pizza Face zine, a collection of art by local musicians; spoken-word performances by Tyler Daughn, Daniel Gutierrez and Antonin Artaud; and an art show with works by Demetrius Francisco Antuna, Jeff Graves, Kelly Alvarez and others.
A Happening @ mxd830: Cathedral X, a local, multimedia performance-art collective, is raising money to help fund an art film. The group needs cash for costumes, equipment and more, so from 7 p.m. to midnight Friday, Nov. 4, they're hosting a launch party for their Kickstarter campaign and staging performances and installations that'll give people a taste of what their DVD will be about. The venue is located at 830 25 St. in Golden Hill.
Soft Grand Opening @ Mad House Comedy Club: Check out San Diego's newest comedy club (at Horton Plaza) at the early show (7 p.m.) or late show (9 p.m.) Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 7 and 8. Local comedians Allison Gill, Erik Knowles, Tommy Lucero and others will be performing stand-up sets.
