Well, that was a doozy of a weekend. We might be tuckered out after a weekend jam-packed with solid play, but we're also still here on this earth, so we're happy to make the most of it. (That'll be the last Rapture joke we make, pinky-swear.) Read on to see what to pencil in to your busy school nights for this week.
WE DON’T WANT TO MISS:
Thursday, May 26, 8 p.m.
This four-day queer celebration festival is billed as "a revolution you can dance to," and that's something we can most certainly enjoy on a school night. Thursday is MondoHomo's opening night, with three events that include art, spoken word, and one big dance party to ring in the festival. Sounds like a right fun way to get your culture on, if you ask us.

COMING TO AMERICA: STORYCORPS CELEBRATES STORIES OF IMMIGRATION
Thursday, May 19, 8:30 p.m.
We love us a good story, and we also love the good work being done at StoryCorps (even though they have, on occasion, made us cry like babies on the way to work). This free (!) event at the Auburn Avenue Research Library features fellow Atlantans telling their stories about the international treks they made here.

Wednesday, May 25, 6 p.m.
We were pretty excited to learn last week about Atlanta Art Now, Atlanta's upcoming biennial contemporary arts publication. Its inaugural issue (pictured) will feature an exhaustive list of ATL's most creative artists, and co-author Cinque Hicks will be giving us the lowdown this Wednesday at WonderRoot.
