Hollywood Babble-On

Experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger's 1959 got-to-be-read-to-be-believed secret-spiller Hollywood Babylon exposes the dark heart of moral corruption at the center of Hollywood's much-romanticized “Golden Age,” gleefully detailing the gristle to let the rubberneckers take a good long leer. Outsider filmmaker-cum-”Smodcaster” Kevin Smith's podcast/web series Hollywood Babble-On, on the other hand, won't tell you much more than you already know about the lives of the rich and famous. It's just Smith riffing on the Hollywood headlines with co-host Ralph Garman, something like watching Entertainment Tonight in Smith's danky den, a much more inviting proposition for anyone who'd rather watch Mallrats than Lucifer Rising. $44.50, 9pm Sat, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 226 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Jeremy Martin
