Teenage wizard Harry Plotter and his frineds, Hermaphrodite Grunger and Ron Wheezer, must race their broomsticks against time to stop an evil presence. Could it be Harry's arch-enemy, He-Who-Cannot-Be-Remembered? Perhaps the school bully, Drag-O Mouthrot, is stirring up double-trouble. On hand are Alvis Bumbledork, Warthog's headmaster; Haggard, half giant, half chia-pet; Professor Severed Snake,head of Slipperies; and Hary's nasty relatives, Aunt Wetuna and Uncle Vermin-to name a few.

Baaba Maal featuring Daande Lenol @ The Rialto

From the northern, riverside town of Podor comes a modern musician filled with the mysteries of ancient Africa. Catlike and delicate in appearance, Baaba Maal sings with hurricane force. His music embraces the gentle filigree of West African folk and the toughness of urban music. After attending conservatory in Paris in 1982 and pricking up ears in Europe, Maal returned to Senegal to form his current group, Daande Lenol, or Voice of the People. Like the griots he admires, Maal sings of history and heroes, bringing the lessons of the past into our lives today, as heard on the Black Hawk Down soundtrack. Maal brings his acoustic group to the Rialto, focusing on the folkloric and intimate music of Africa.

Patrick Turner @ The Mark
In an effort to stay in theme The Mark has found the biggest DJ in the U.S by the name of Patrick. Join us for a special St.Patrick's Day "Acclaimed Sessions 2004" with DJ/Producer Patrick Turner. Complimentary "Leprechaun" shots until 11pm. Doors open at 9pm. $10 cover. Ladies Free until midnight.

Patrick broke through into the industry with his work on the San Francisco deep house label Transport Recordings. These tracks immediately caught the attention of an extremely diverse group of DJs; from Garth to Pete OThe Shaker’ Bones. The sultry atmospherics, sexy bass lines and thick ethnic percussion would become the foundation of a sound that Patrick is now known for across the world. For more info visit www.jivemagazine.com.
