Get your Mama Drama on as Mary Birdsong presents her one-woman show "3 Days in the Tub: A Mama Drama" at The Fake Gallery tonight. Based on painful, awkwardly, wish-it-wasn't-so-but-it-is-so-let's-laugh-about-it true events from her very real life, Mary will twist her way through demented mommy madness via storytelling and rock-song performing. You should go, if only to feel a hell of a lot better about your own mommy situation. Tickets are $5, show starts at 8 p.m.

See if your video or film has what it takes to win a prize or if it will be voted off the film island at Open Projector Night. 10 minute films can be submitted for praise, critique or total annihilation at Hammer Museum. Free popcorn and cash bar should ease your performance anxiety. Submissions begin at 7 p.m. and are first come, first serve.

Rick Meyerowitz will be reading from and signing his book Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Writers and Artists Who Made National Lampoon Insanely Great at 7 p.m. tonight at Book Soup.
