ART: NerdMelt hosts Super Art Fight, a live art competition billed as "Pictionary meets pro wrestling." The event boasts Ethan Nicolle, illustrator of the beloved web comic "Axe Cop," among other esteemed competitors. Tickets are $8, and doors open at 7:45 p.m.

FILM: The Cinefamily continues "Shaw Nuff," their exploration of the Shaw brothers' campy, grisly fare, with a screening of the brothers' 1982 horror-and-martial-arts flick "Human Lanterns." The film, about a skull-faced serial killer who peels off women's skin, is sure to be entertaining, but probably not for the squeamish. The screening starts at 11 p.m. and is $12 or free for Cinefamily members.
