'Otto; or, Up with Dead People' at Egyptian

Bruce LaBruce may not have made the first gay zombie film, but he's certainly made the most substantial one. Built around the life and memories of the titular alterna-zombie, Otto; or, Up with Dead People is a compelling mishmash of zombie drama, art-house pretension, queer theory, AIDS allegory, vegetarian treatise, hardcore porn, faux documentary, and a good, old-fashioned homosexual blood feast. It's insanely inventive and, for the most part, it works. (Director scheduled to attend.) (Egyptian Theatre, 801 E Pine St, Midnight, $8.)



'MetaphorM' at Suyama Space

You never know what you're going to find in the Belltown gallery Suyama Space, which hosts site-specific commissions all year round. That's what makes opening night so great. This time, Philadelphia-based artists Carolyn Healy and John Phillips have made an installation using cables, ropes, and pulleys along with video and sound, all of which interact with the light—both natural and projected—in the unusually gorgeous room. One other plus at this opening: Because of gallery hours and the summer season, it's the only time you can see art at sunset. (Suyama Space, 2324 Second Ave, 256-0809. 5–8 pm, free.)

    I just hope Otto has a good sound track.

    Nothing like a good zombie rave.
