Hello, readers, and welcome to the mid-point. Halfway through the week, and still so much left to do! With that in mind, LAist offers you this compelling list to lure you out of the house tonight in celebration of day 3/5.

Tonight at the Egyptian Theatre, see the Fantasy, Horror & Sci-Fi Shorts Program. The show begins at 7:00 PM and features Rene Andre’s "An Enchanted Tale," Richie Mehta’s "System Of Units," Colin Elliott’s "Duel," Nirvan Mullick’s "The Box Man," Toni Harman’s "Daddy’s Boy," Tinieblas Gonzalez’s "Ecosistma," Aristomenis Tsirbas’s "Terra," and Juan Solanas’ "The Man Without a Head."

Downtown at The Smell, see Lion Fever with Japanese noise band Nisennen Mondai, LA's own Mika Miko and Halloy (from Bluebird). Doors open at 9:00 PM and admission is $5.00.

7:00 PM brings a free instore at Amoeba Music, featuring The Muffs celebrating the release of their new CD, Really, Really Happy.

At Tangier, see the final installment of Jonathan Richman (yes, that Jonathan Richman) backed by former Naked Prey drummer Tommy Larkins, with Gwendolyn. The gig is a CD release party for Richman's new album, Not So Much To Be Loved As To Love. Tickets are $12.00 and doors open at 8:00 PM.

Also tonight, at Book Soup on Sunset, Michael Madsen is signing his new book of poetry, 46 Down: A Book of Dreams and Other Ramblings. "Those of us lucky enough to inhabit this fair city know there’s often much more to an actor than the talent we witness on screen. Such is the case with Michael Madsen, whose gritty and undeniable presence has garnered him memorable roles in a slew of cutting-edge films from Reservoir Dogs to Donnie Brasco to both volumes of Kill Bill." The signing begins at 7:00 PM.
