You'll have to move fast to catch everything going down in Mound City this weekend. We've got races on bikes and in soap box cars, Wiccans, heartache, and horror, plus the U.S. soccer team going up against our one-time colonial oppressors!

Looking for weekend music? Here's our weekend concert calendar.

Now, on with the list of suggestions!

PrideFest Kickoff Party (Friday)
Pridefest is still a few weeks away, but their kick-off, "Out in the Open," at the Mad Art Gallery should be enough to hold you over. Admission starts at $10 and gives you access to a fashion show, auction, and free drinks. Read on for more info.

Hausu at Webster University (Friday-Sunday)
Reviewer Mark Fischer says of  this Japanese horror flick that, "[Director] Obayashi modeled his film on a stream of consciousness ghost story narrated by his eleven-year-old daughter, and created a sugar-high, effects-saturated midnight movie pileup that delivers the missing link between Kwaidan and Pee-wee's Playhouse." We're sold. The movie is playing at Moore Auditorium at 7:30 Tickets are $5-6. Click for more info.

St. Louis Pagan Picnic (Saturday and Sunday)
Billed as "the premier pagan event in the Midwest," this year's Pagan Picnic at Tower Grove Park features a packed schedule (conveniently organizing events as "elemental, ritual, baldric, or kidzone") including music, tarot reading, magical jewelry, and chant writing.
