Today: Help Babies, Yeah-Yeah-Yeahs, 9-11 Film Festival

Posted by novoscene on September 9, 2009

Give Cheeks a Chance!

Help kick off a month-long diaper drive organized by Help a Mother Out tonight at SadieDey’s Café.

This goal of this drive is to provide diapers and basic supplies for homeless/low income babies and kids. Take the kids for a play-date and early dinner, donate diapers, new underwear and socks, and learn more about what you can do to help a mother out.

5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
SadieDey’s Café, 4210 Telegraph Avenue between 42nd and 43rd Street, www.sadiedeyscafe.com
Questions? Leah @ leah@sadiedeyscafe.com, 510-529-5202

Artsy New York dance punk is on at the Fox tonight and tomorrow as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs promote their third album It’s Blitz.

8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 9 & Thursday, September 10

Fifth Annual 9-11 Film Festival

Given the Van Jones controversy, it would probably be apt to give a nod to the Fifth Annual 9-11 Film Festival, which is a benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYCCAN).

Wednesday, September 9, 6.15 p.m.
Thursday, September 10, noon onwards,
The Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Avenue
