On the LookOut for a Different Pub Quiz?

If you like pub quizzes but are tired of the usual format, swing by the LookOut on a Monday night for Brain Farts.

Stanley Donwood is the man behind the art, and he's having his first-ever U.S. art show, entitled "Over Normal" in our very own San Francisco at Fifty24SF Gallery on September 2nd.
