They had me at Astro Boy and karaoke...
The Crow Collection of Asian Art is hosting an event that's part of the Crow Collection After Dark. It's called Manga Madness (March 18, 6pm - midnight).
Attendees can "dress as your favorite anime character and enjoy a manga movie marathon featuring Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy, comic book artist demos, and karaoke."
Their looking for volunteer greeters, and aside from the coolness factor, you'll get to see the movies too.
Good luck, volunteers!
