Meet the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ozzy Osbourne onOzzy Osbourne signing san francisco booksmith Amoeba Trust Me I'm Dr. Ozzy October 22nd at 3:00pm when the Prince of Darkness himself graces our good friends over at The Booksmith on Haight Street in San Francisco!

Ozzy will be signing copies of his new book, TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY: Advice from Rock's Ultimate Survivor, and select albums that Amoeba will have on sale at Booksmith. Based on his ongoing, hilarious Rolling Stone column, his new book finds him embracing his status as a medical marvel to tell incredible stories not found in his memoir (I Am Ozzy), offer advice that no human should follow, and shed light on his seemingly superhuman ability to stay alive.
 
TRUST ME, I'M DR. OZZY includes some of the best material from the columns as well as longer memoir-style survival stories that Ozzy has remembered since writing I Am Ozzy, his answers to celebrities’ medical questions, charts and sidebars, and much more.  Part humor, part memoir, and part bad advice, the best way to describe this book is 100% pure Ozzy.
 
More info about the signing event:
No memorabilia will be signed; NO exceptions.
Candid snapshots from the line only; NO exceptions.
Books must be purchased from Booksmith in order to be signed; no exceptions. Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy will be available in the store beginning October 11th. You may place an advance order in person, by phone, email (orders@booksmith.com), or online prior to that date.

Cinema Speakeasy SF Presents The Evil Dead & Evil Dead II DOUBLEHEADER -- 10/6

Cinema Speakeasy
Start October off right with a double creature feature! Join Cinema Speakeasy SF for a spooktacularThe Evil Dead screening of The Evil Dead AND Evil Dead II on October 6th at GAFFTA (998 Market St. @ Taylor St. 94102)!

Marking the 30th anniversary of its release, Cinema Speakeasy is resurrecting The Evil Dead to witness Sam Raimi make movie magic (and history) with a scary small budget, THEN they'll compare it to the Hollywood budget he had for Evil Dead II. The basics are the same: a creepy cabin in the woods, some book and audio recording conjuring evil spirits from beyond, and this dude Ash running around in the woods dismembering people possessed by demons. If that doesn’t raise goosebumps on your arms, then you’re probably the evil dead too.

But that's not all! It's a Drink-Along screening too! Here are the rules:

- A human gets possessed by an evil spirit: DRINK!
- Someone suggests going out on their own (or something equally stupid): Yell NOOO! Then DRINK!
- A milky white substance excretes from someone’s face: CHEERS and DRINK!
- You’re a little scared: LAUGH and DRINK! It’ll help. Trust us.
