Editor's picks: 20 things to do this weekend in Columbus

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

It'll be cold for only a little bit longer. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. Might as well soak up these last moments of winter with movies, movies and more movies. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


Watch slacker movie "Buzzard" at Gateway Film Center

Like Alive film critic Brad Keefe, I'm a sucker for a buncha the reference points found in slacker movie "Buzzard."

Arnold Sports Festival

Bummers at Strongwater Food & Spirits

Watch robot sci-fi movie "Chappie"

Watch "Interstellar" in 3D at the Wexner Center

The Kyle Sowashes, Dolfish, Meridian, Winter Makes Sailors at Spacebar

Frequency Fridays: Shana Palmer, Tone Elevator, Adam Crawley/John Osburn at It Looks Like It's Open

Bad Movie Nite: Wee Little Killers at Studio 35


Crew SC vs. Houston Dynamo

It's here! It's really here! Crewsmas is almost upon us. But first, the beloved black and gold must travel to Houston for its season opener. If you're not one of the poor souls with Time Warner Cable, perhaps you should hit up a viewing party to take in the first game of what's sure to be an exciting and successful season. To get you even more amped, check out this profile on Crew SC goalie Steve Clark.

Trail Running Film Festival at Studio 35

Wanna really start jonsin' for spring? Head to this trail running film festival at Studio 35.

Kevin Morby and Ryley Walker at Double Happiness

Former Woods band member Kevin Morby's put out two sneaky good albums in the last couple years. Transfixed with a sense of wanderlust, Morby's music is hypnotizing even as he yearns to keep his feet moving. Fans of Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Damien Jurado and Lou Reed will appreciate this show. Ryley Walker ain't no slouch either. Check him out in this intimate setting before he plays Nelsonville Music Festival this spring.
