Asian Pacific Films, Free Theater and a Comfortable Sweater Set

For your Calendar: (I will try to get this organized into an easy-to-read events calendar in the near future.  Thanks for bearing with me.)
**Opening night for the dc Asian Pacific American Film Festival is this Thursday, Oct. 1.  $20 gets you into an interesting documentary by Eric Byler (rent his Charlotte Sometimes when you get a chance), a Q&A after, plus a rooftop soiree across from the Verizon Center.  Sounds like a good deal to me.
**This Thursday Oct. 1 is also Free Theater Day.  This means that you will be able to go online and get tickets to a future free show in the area!  But shows will go fast.  You'll need to go online as close to 12pm as possible. 
**At the Shakespeare Theatre this Sunday, 9/27, there will be free Open Rehearsals to their new production of The Alchemist, at 1pm, 2:30, 4, 7 and 8:30.  No reservations needed.
**The Velocity DC Dance Festival takes place next Friday and Saturday nights.  Tickets thru Goldstar are only $8.50.  There's a Culture Club meetup for Friday night's show.
**Nick Hornby (Hi Fidelity, About a Boy) comes to Politics & Prose next Thursday with his new highly praised novel, Juliet, Naked.
**The Pink Line Project is very active these days.  This Sunday night at 7, at a new hot place on Capitol Hill called The Fridge, they are sponsoring magician David London.  RSVP to rsvp@Pinklineproject.com.  Then on Saturday, Oct. 10, they will be having a big party in Rosslyn (Rosslyn??) to preview Arlington's new cultural center being built in the old Newseum Site.  That's a great thing!
**I really enjoyed a folk musical group named The Sweater Set at Arts on Foot.  They'll be playing Oct. 4 at the Takoma Park Street Festival, at the aformentioned Fridge, Tuesday, Oct. 6th at 7:30pm and at Iota on Nov. 10.
**Monday, Oct. 26, at the DCJCC is a free reading of a new book about Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis.  It's part of the DCJCC Literary Fetsival.  The Event is free and will have refreshments after.  It will fill up quickly.
