Buffy the Vampire Slayer Sing-along

Now, we're not here to judge. But if you still find yourself in paroxysms of despair when you think of how much you miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you may want to seek help (or at least develop a healthy addiction to Heroes). Should you, however, continue living as a functioning adult while fondly recalling the slayer's small-screen antics, then you can relive the glory days tonight at a special sing-along screening of Buffy episode "Once More, With Feeling." The only all-musical episode of Buffy features characters who dance and sing to the point of combustion (don't let this happen to you!). Amber Benson, who played Tara, will attend the event, which also features costume and trivia contests. The Southwest Alternate Media Project is hosting; no word on whether it's sponsoring a Buffy-withdrawal support group, too. 7:30 p.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-522-8592 or visit www.swamp.org. Free.
