Martha Colburn and Co.
mon. 2/27, 8pm, @Ocularis @Galapagos Art and Performance Space, 70 North 6th St., 388-8713, ocularis.net * Brainwashed Japanese school children, media bombardment, fetishistic comic worlds, demented home movies, Modernist Robot attacks: these cruel realities of linear life plus a smattering of good form and bad taste are all on the menu thanks to guest programmer Martha Colburn, the queen of cut-out animation. Tonight she offers up a sample of her own work with a side of some favorite films, finishing it all off with a few "found" treats from her personal archive. Sure to surprise, Colburn's show promises to be as perverse, homespun, and spazztastic as her art. Highlights include films by French collective Le Denier Cri, new work from Chinese artist Mo Xue, video by Greg Smith, as well as Colburn's first animation, Caffeine Jam, a mad adventure following two musicians through alligator pits and troublesome bullrings.

Zombies of the Stratosphere
sun. 2/26, 4pm, @ The Backroom, 485 Dean St., 622-7035, freddysbackroom.com * (1952) Evil Martians in hooded catsuits have landed on Earth to work fiendish plan. With the aid of a renegade scientist and hired henchmen in fedoras, they're building a huge H-bomb to blow the Earth out of its orbit. Then Mars can take its place and enjoy an improved climate. Only Larry Martin, the flying Rocketman, with his jet pack and bullet helmet, can foil this horrid plot. He's a cross between Howard Hughes and Batman, a super-scientific defense contractor action hero. When he flies, he's a dummy on a wire. When he's not flying, he's still stiff as a dummy: a weak actor struggling with a bad script. A very young Leonard Nimoy appears as
one of the Martians. You'll recognize his voice as he delivers a dying speech to help save the Earth.
