The New Filmmakers Los Angeles will screen 14 short films tonight and you'd be crazy to miss it. The last film of the night is our top pick: show your bike-friendly love by attending the screening of Riding Bikes with the Dutch at Sunset Gower Studios. The film follows a Long Beach family as they travel to Amsterdam to experience how the Dutch use bikes in their everyday life. Get your livable community on starting at 9:15 p.m. Tickets for Riding Bikes with Dutch are $5.

As part of the exhibition Hammer Projects: My Barbarian, the Hammer Museum is hosting a "Death Panel Discussion" about what it takes to be a curator of nightmares and the oft-hysterical public dialogue that is intermingled in horror films of late. Tickets are free and can be picked up one hour prior to the talk which begins at 7:00 p.m.

Actor and author Jeff Garlin will lead a reading group discussion on Bernard Malamud's A New Life at Book Soup. Jonathan Lethem thinks the book is a "masterpiece" that has been overlooked for the past fifty years, but no word yet on what Garlin thinks or what turns the discussion may take while deep-diving (or skimming the surface) of Malamud's novel. Reading group goodness starts at 7:00 p.m.

L'Arpeggiata - the ensemble directed by Baroque lutenist/harpist Christina Pluhar - makes its Walt Disney Concert Hall debut tonight and promises to be quite the classical thing if classical is...your thing. From instrumental improvisations and a blending of Baroque and traditional musical worlds, this show is a critics' darling. Get thee to the theatah at once, we beseech you! Tickets start at $45. Show starts at 8:00 p.m.
