    ATX Short Film Showcase

    Every month, 7-8 local filmmakers’ short films are showcased and Q&A’d at the Ballroom. Past selections have run the genre gamut from horror to comedy to music videos, so if you’re interested in what the local scene is cooking up, take a break from the regular AFS/Violet Crown/Alamo rotation and take a chance on some underdogs. And if you’re looking to join that scene, filmmakers can submit by the Feb. 10 deadline for a slot in the Feb. 12 show. Tickets are $12 online, $15 at the door. – Lina Fisher

    Digital Libraries for Thinking Machines

    We’re thinking, with our own personal wetware, that the Harry Ransom Center’s jam-packed stronghold, replete with world-class collections of documents and artifacts from all over, is the perfect venue for hosting this talk by Brewster Kahle, founder and digital librarian of the Internet Archive. Kahle’s magnum opus, begun in 1996, preserves more than 99 unique petabytes of data – the books, web pages, music, television, and software of our modern cultural heritage – and works with library and university partners around the world to create a digital library that’s accessible to all. – Wayne Alan Brenner

    Goblin Guild

    Before there was World of Warcraft, before there was even a World Wide Web, there was Dungeons & Dragons. Whether you’re a curious newbie or a longtime player, go IRL and find fellow adventurers at this free D&D meetup each Monday at 7, where one-shots, ongoing campaigns, and fun activities will be on the map. Come early to snag a killer po’boy and a brew or brewski from Cherrywood, and email any questions to GoblinGuildATX@gmail.com. : – Kat McNevins

    Nightlife & Parties

    Roller Rodeo Disco

    Local sexual health clinic ASHwell and queer country eventstars Neon Rainbows are putting on a rollerskatin’-n’-scootin’ extravaganza – on a Monday no less! DJ Boi Orbison will bring the genre-bending country/disco mashups, plus a halftime show by none other than ATX Dolly Brigitte Bandit and known Willie impersonator Travis Randy Travis. There’ll be a couples costume contest, because ’tis the season, and a multi-vendor market with Lonestar Queer. All this could be yours for the low price of $14 – including rollerblade or skate rental! – Lina Fisher

    Silent Book Club ATX

    Silent Book Club rejects the stuffy tradition of the reader gatherings of yore. In these local meetups, there’s no group discussion, or even required reading. Instead, the “introvert happy hour” invites book lovers to gather and read their own selections in silence, enjoying the company of those doing the same thing. After an hour of parallel play, the event opens up to (optional) socializing. Hosted by various local businesses, Monday’s congregation finds an especially fitting home at Vintage Bookstore, the cozy East 11th Street shop that features not espresso, but a wine bar. – Carys Anderson

    The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967)

    Young Deneuve and her sister Dorléac play singing and dancing twins in this unique musical. Their lives grow entwined with those of a music-shop owner and a painter, while all of them search for love amid the music of Michel Legrand. The stunningly colorful film was restored under the guidance of Demy's widow, Agnès Varda.
