The True Panther Family Jam at Cameo Gallery
Holiday parties are fun and all, but sometimes you don't wanna make small talk with people you only vaguely know, and just want to shut your face and dance your pants off. Luckily, pne of New York's most exciting young indie labels, the formerly-San Francisco-based Matador imprint True Panther Sounds, is hosting a "Family Jam" tonight, with dancing and DJ sets courtesy of labelmates Lemonade, Tanlines, Teengirl Fantasy, Glasser's Van Rivers and Cool Places Soundsystem. The party's free with RSVP here.
Cameo Gallery, 93 N. 6th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, (718) 302-1180. 11:30 p.m. Free.
Adventures in Babysitting at BAM
From the opening credits featuring the Crystals "And Then He Kissed Me" to the scene at the train station where Brenda is holding a rat that she thinks is a kitten to Elizabeth Shue belting out "The Babysiting Blues" to all things Thor-related, Adventures in Babysitting is as classic and wonderful an '80s film as it gets. Catch it tonight at BAM, where it screens as part of their "Adventures in the 80s with David Gordon Green" series.
Brooklyn Academy of Music, 30 Lafayette Ave., Fort Greene, Brooklyn. 6:50 & 9:15 p.m. $12.
