Litquake, San Francisco's annual literary festival, returns October 10-19 in venues all over the city. Amoeba Music is thrilled to co-present these two exciting events happening at the Alamo Drafthouse:

Baby, Don't Hurt Me: An Evening with Chris Kattan
Saturday, October 12 • 7:30pm. Alamo Drafthouse New MissionChris Kattan
Chris Kattan has defied comparison, expectations, and sometimes gravity with his inimitable style of physical comedy. By creating some of the most memorable Saturday Night Live characters, as well as his many roles in film and television, Kattan has remained one of the world's most fearless and versatile comedians. His new memoir Baby, Don't Hurt Me offers an unprecedented look into Chris’s life, from working alongside Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, and Tina Fey, to more sobering moments such as breaking his neck at SNL, which sidetracked his career and nearly paralyzed him. Conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald, followed by book sales and signing. Tickets $30.

The Lady From the Black Lagoon
Wednesday, October 16 • 7:00pm. Alamo Drafthouse New MissionLady from the Black Lagoon
The horror film Creature from the Black Lagoon released to theaters in 1954, and quickly became iconic. But thanks to a jealous male colleague, the monster’s designer Milicent Patrick received zero credit for her contribution. Her career ended soon thereafter, and she disappeared. Screenwriter and film producer Mallory O’Meara uncovers a fascinating story of the woman who created one of Hollywood’s classic movie monsters. The Lady from the Black Lagoon establishes Milicent Patrick in her rightful place in film history, while calling out a Hollywood culture where little has changed since. Book signing at 6pm, followed by 7pm onstage conversation and screening of the film (in 3-D). Tickets $25.
