Abel Ferrara Ms.-45 at IFC Center: What happens when you push a girl too far? She goes on a revenge rampage dressed as a nun. (Manhattan, Midnight Friday and Saturday, $13.50)

Migrating Forms series at BAMcinématek: Briding the gap between film and art worlds, BAM presents moving image work film festivals, biennials, museums and microcinemas — varying from a Super-8 self-portrait of Anne Charlotte Robertson’s mental breakdown and hospitalization to Merce Cunningham dancy-dancy-dancy. (Brooklyn, all weekend through Dec 17)

Last night, the Emoji Art & Design show (that we previewed with that epic Bosch-moji) was very crowded. A big hit. You should come by before it closes Saturday. Eyebeam, woo! (Manhattan, free)

Diarrhea Planet and Porches at Barnard College: Expect lots of guitars. (Manhattan, 11:30pm, free)


Hard Nips is playing Trans Pecos — brand new venue, in the former Silent Barn space –with Peter Kerlin Octet, Sunwatchers, and Platinum Vision. (Brooklyn, 8pm, $8)

Queens of the Stone Age at Barclays Center: If you’re going to go to an arena rock show, you might as well go to a really good one. (Brooklyn, 8pm, $35 and up)

That weird little movie theater is still screening Best of The Spectacle all month, but our pick is Der Fan, a “nasty little art-house shocker” about  teenage girl with a rock-star crush, full of “adolescent angst, and full-blooded horror.” (Brooklyn, 7:30pm, $5)

For Daniel Temkin’s “Glitchtometry” art show closing, TRANSFER Gallery presents NET VVOWRTH: An Online Auction House offering Netarts by Internationally Renowned Artists and their Impersonators. Oh, and yeah: “The collection is offered to expose net art as a viable investment to big money collectors by establishing a shadow market, proving its ability to hide illicit profits and transfer them easily around the globe.” (Brooklyn, 7-11pm, Free)


From Babycastles to Sacred Bones Records, there’s a lot of independent music, art and misc vendors at Silent Barn’s Black Christmas ❈ Holiday Market ❈ Barn Fundraiser pop-up. Sweet. (Brooklyn, 11am, free/cheap)
