Dategirl

There will be beer. There will be whiskey. There will be pizza. And there will be a sensational DJ: El Toro (Kurt B. Reighley) tonight at the Sunset. But what's unusual is that there will also be an author, Judy McGuire, aka Seattle Weekly's own Dategirl columnist. And rather than simply read passages from her exhaustively researched and wildly entertaining new The Official Book of Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n Roll Lists (Soft Skull, $15.95) McGuire will stage a trivia contest ("How many rockers croaked via autoerotic asphyxiation?") and give away prizes away to the most knowledgeable attendees. Stick around after Kurt and Judy's Variety Show (as we surely will), pay a modest $8 cover, and you can also hear some of Seattle's finest local twang, performed live by Shelby Earl and Mark Pickerel. (Amy Lavere's also on the bill.) You can bet McGuire will sign your book, and you can also read an exclusive advance excerpt at seattleweekly.com. MIKE SEELY
