It List: Monday

Usual Monday with Cool Out and Jazz at The Amsterdam, however it's in unusual Monday, since local Film blog Gordon And The Whale is hosting a free screening of the new film, Exit Through The Gift Shop, which bills itself as the "World's first Street Art Disaster Movie" and is the creation of world-famous yet anonymous street artist Banksy. Entrance is free along with a printed-out copy of the Facebook invite, which you can get by "liking" Gordon And The Whale on Facebook. The Sour Grapes graffiti crew will be in attendance, and there is a possible Q&A afterward as time permits.

Bansky's art and publicity technique may be too gimmicky for some to stomach, but whatever you think of him, you can't dispute the truth of this quote, or at least, we certainly can't:

"Nobody ever listened to me until they didn't know who I was."

Yeah, that seems familiar. Film is at 7:30 PM at The Angelika at Mockingbird Station.
