In the Hollywood & Highland Center's courtyard, a concert event is taking place Friday February 19 at 5:00 p.m. There will be live music performed by artists featured on the film's "Almost Alice" soundtrack (available March 2), including Family Force 5 and Never Shout Never.
Director Tim Burton (Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Beetle Juice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street) will be there, as well as "select members of the movie's cast". Considering the film's awesome lineup, who knows what's possible? While I can't imagine Johnny Depp will be there (but he could be!), Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter (the Queen of Hearts), L.A.-based Anne Hathaway (the White Queen), and/or Australian newcomer Mia Wasikowska (Alice) may show up. Exciting stuff. Oh, and it's free!
If you can't wait till the film's March 5 release, with the purchase of a 3OH!3 T-Shirt from the center's Hot Topic and soundtrack pre-order, you'll not only get a ticket (well, a wristband) to a 3D sneak peak of the film following the event, but a band meet-and-greet and access to a prime viewing space during the show.
Note: Surprising as it may be, Hot Topic has some pretty cool "Alice" merchandise.
If a trip to Hollywood isn't in the cards for you tomorrow night, watch the festivities live online at myspace.com/wonderland.
The Hollywood & Highland Center is located at 6800 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood.
