In the words of Spinal Tap drummer Mick Shrimpton, who would tragically die in an onstage explosion in Japan, "As long as there's, you know, sex and drugs, I can do without the rock & roll." After all these years, This Is Spinal Tap is still a monumentally hilarious mockumentary. And it's still making the world a better place with this benefit for Hollywood Rock Academy Foundation, which, along with the screening, features Tapped Out, a Spinal Tap tribute band made up of in-need kids from the school. Majestic Crest Theater, 1262 Westwood Blvd., Westwood; Thurs., Oct. 16, doors at 7 p.m.; $30; $111.11 VIP, includes gift bag, DVD, after-party and more. www.hollywoodrockacademy.com.
