GUILLERMO DEL TORO: He made headlines at Comic-Con over the summer for a certain "Haunted Mansion"-y announcement; now the much-lauded director of "Pan's Labyrinth" will be at Amoeba Records tonight signing "Cronos." There will also be a "Cronos" screening, too, at the Los Angeles Film School. Oh, and a bonus: Amoeba says a "never-before-seen horror short film" by Mr. del Toro will screen as well.
MUSICAL LEGENDS: Neil Sedaka plays Walt Disney Concert Hall; we always like when an artist with a distinctive sound gets to play there, and he's lent a sunny Sedakaness to countless artists over the years. Hope he sings "Calendar Girl." Just a pop south, Peter Asher of Peter & Gordon will be talking '60s rock headliners (Mick Jagger and John Lennon look to be two he'll cover) at the Grammy Museum.
