Fans of Glaswegian indie pop take heed: Camera Obscura crosses the pond this weekend to grace you with their presence at Bimbo’s 365 Club. This Friday at 9 p.m. the group will charm with their Scottish antics for the low, low price of $16.

Accompanied by soundtrack wunderkind Portastatic, this show promises an excess of adorable lyrics, a sweet sound unmatched by any. This tour stops here for one night only, so make sure to take this opportunity to revel in the hipster glory that is sure to reach near-critical levels.

This Saturday, Feb. 17, the Pacific Film Archive shows its newly-struck print (from Hungary) of Bela Tarr's mythic 1994 film, “Satantango,” for the first time in Berkeley. The seven and a half-hour film starts at 1 p.m.; you'll be out by 9:30, with intermissions. Susan Sontag said, “I would see (“Satantango”) once a year, for the rest of my life.” Get your first, if you haven’t already.
