Hiatus Picks the Week’s Best Bets

Devil’s Night Ball

Kava Lounge / Oct. 30 / 9 p.m. / $10

There’s no better way to welcome in this All Hallow’s Eve
than with ghoulish and garish duo Tragic Tantrum, bringing their campy cabaret
performance to Kava Lounge this Tuesday with all the punk fittings. Their
playful yet menacing sing-a-longs are paired with stripped-down accoustics
(occasionally even a xylophone) and an art-exhibit backdrop with a Day of the
Dead altar and surrounding costume ball. (JG)

“We Own The Night”

La Jolla Village Cinemas / Now Playing

Filling the crime void left by “The Departed” (at least
until “American Gangster”) is James Gray’s tale of one family’s ties to both
sides of the law — one brother (Mark Wahlberg) has followed in the family
footsteps to become a respected NYPD officer, while the other (Joaquin Phoenix)
manages a popular night club that doubles as a drug-running front for the mob.
Life paths and allied interests inevitably collide in what’s more of a popcorn
flick than the study of violence that was Scorsese’s modern classic, but
“Night” is the best bet for those who can’t go another minute without a highly
stylized shootout or bullet-riddled corpse. (CM)
