April Hava Shenkman wants to re-begin the New Year with you. She and Jason Jenn, both celebrating December 29 birthdays, have dreamed up The Happy Happy ReBegin Day Celebration! "This year we decided to join forces and expand our personal New Year celebrations with that of the universal new year, post 12-21-12 which is believed to be the end of a galactic cycle and the beginning of the next collaborating to create a re-begin day celebration for all." What does that mean for you? Well, besides a cake and champagne toast, expect a deep and unifying live performance of "fun & frivolity expressed through performance, video & art." Shenkman, whose middle name means "life" in Hebrew, will also screen her "HAVA Calendar Series," consisting of 12 videos, one for each month, depicting "the HAPPY HAPPY of that month." Come on get happy! Spirit Studio Silverlake, 2601 Hyperion Ave.; Sat., Dec. 29, 7 p.m.; $13 (lucky). (323) 319-7836.
