Do It. The Onion and A.V. Club at Echoplex.

Call me old-fashioned, but I still mourn the absence of an actual weekly print issue of The Onion in L.A. There was nothing better than an inappropriate headline and ridiculous photo to brighten up my Thursday mornings, and I appreciated the A.V. Club's witty and wise guidance through pop culture for my weekends. Sure, there's the web, but I miss the local A.V. Club guide, and it's just not the same reading about "That Full House Episode Where They Meet the Beach Boys Is On Tomorrow at 3 P.M." or "Bush Refuses To Set Timetable For Withdrawal Of Head From White House Banister" from your computer screen. It's not! (But they're admittedly still funny.)

So I guess we'll have to settle for...having The Onion and the A.V. Club in person! That's right, your favorite names and brains behind the headlines and entertainment coverage are appearing tonight at Echoplex for "Our Dumb Book Event," which celebrates the release of their Inventory and Our Front Pages books. They're also bringing comedians Tom Lennon and Ben Garant from Reno 911! and the band Division Day with them, among others, and considering it's April Fools Day, hijinks are sure to be in order.

Our Dumb Book Event is $10 at 7:30pm at Echoplex, located at 1154 Glendale Blvd. in Echo Park.
