TRIBUTE: Los Globos is hosting a tribute to Morrissey for his 54th unhappy birthday. There will, of course, be Morrissey and Smiths tribute bands, as well as DJs and bands playing new wave, synth pop and electro-clash. It's $5 before 10:30 pm if you RSVP on their Facebook page.

IMPROV: The LA Indie Improv Festival kicks off today at venues along Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood. There will be 5 stages and 13 hours of improv that kick off at 11 am. For the full schedule and line-up, visit the festival's website.

CULTS: It's a summer of cults at Cinefamily and tonight you can catch "Ticket To Heaven," which is patterned on the “Moonies” (Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church). It won the 1982 Genie for Best Picture (which is like a Canadian Oscar). Director Ralph Thomas and producer Vivienne Leebosh will be in person. The screening starts at 7 pm and tickets are $12. For more information, visit Cinefamily's website.

TV: If you want to rewatch "Arrested Development" with a crowd and on a big screen, head to the Paley Center, which is conducting a marathon screening of the series' best episodes from noon until 5 pm. The Paley Center is located at 465 N. Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills.
