GoNightclubbing at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center
7:30pm — 11pm, 341 Delaware Ave.
Interested in the culture of punk rock? Pat Ivers’ and Emily Armstrong’s GoNightclubbing, the original punk rock music series, takes a deep dive into their archive of the most exciting performances recorded live at CBGB, Max’s Kansas City, the Mudd Club, and other NYC venues during the late 1970s and early 1980s. First seen on public access cable in Manhattan, the GoNightclubbing series chronicled the raw excitement of the downtown music scene, unfiltered and in your face. This series of clips will encompass punk, new wave, and a series of interviews with scene figureheads done by the filmmakers.

4pm — 8pm, 995 Niagara St.
The Buffalo Gay Men’s Chorus is having their annual all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner-cum-fundraiser at Boomerang’s Bar & Grill this coming Sunday. There’ll be a 50/50 raffle, gift baskets, and – for the first time — they’re adding some karaoke fun for your dining pleasure. Chorus members will be taking to the mic and sharing their favorites, which means above average karaoke, so don’t miss out. BGMC’s new season kicks off this month with Fallin’ in Love at Kenmore Presbyterian Church on October 20.
