Five Events to
1. Love them or hate them, Nirvana
changed the face of rock 'n' roll with
their abrasive tunes and heartfelt lyr-
ics. "In Utero" is one hell of a bril-
liant album, and the death of Kurt
Cobain will be a great loss to the rock
world. The comparisons to Jim, Jimi
and John are inevitable, and even if
they are unwarranted, Cobain's loss
is to today as theirs were to yester-

enforced sitting policy - sounds (and
felt) more like entering a war prison
than a rock 'n' roll show. The band

most of the gems in their two stores.

First-run Theater: Showcase
Well worth the $10 cab ride to get you
out there. If you like movie theaters
that look like airport terminals. For
the $6.25, go early and treat yourself
to three movies for the price of one.
Just make sure the ones you want are
all on the same side of the theater.
Video Store: Video Watch
Sure, if you want to truck up to Ply-
mouth Road or down Washtenaw. But
any place that has six copies of "Res-
ervoir Dogs" is okay with us. "Either
they're dead, or alive, or the cops got
'em, or they don't."
Liquor/Party store: Village Corner
They've got it all - from cheap beer
to the hard stuff (Ben and Jerry's, of
course). Their wine cellar is among
the most eclectic in the Western
world. But what's with the new red
