San Francisco, this Wednesday night at 10 p.m. is your chance to be the first to see the new J.J. Abrams-directed (and Spielberg-produced) science-fiction adventure about movie cameras, '80s nostalgia, missing puppies, and alien visitors or something. (Wired is sponsoring. Thanks, Wired!)

Critics are toasting the film, bloggers are debating whether it's geek-bait or something more, and we're just flat-out eager to be sitting beneath the Castro's glorious big screen, where for two hours we'll most likely be the embodiments of these famous filmmakers' most reliable habits: people who gaze upward and gape, as Spielberg heroes tend to do, at things that start off awesome but over the long haul disappoint, like Abrams' Alias, Cloverfield, and Lost all did. (We hope his Alcatraz won't.)

To score your free tix, you need to visit a special site and enter a special secret code word:

Yes, "MINT."

As in spearmint, guvmint, or, no, really, from season one they totally mint to wrap up the ass-kicking island mystery with Hurley gardening a golden tunnel of love.

Also: Screening is free!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
