Friday the 13th 35th Anniversary In honor of the 35th anniversary of the release of the original Friday the 13th, the Sci Fi Center will be showing the classic 1980 slasher film, plus a “greatest hits” reel of every single Jason Voorhees kill from the entire series, without any annoying plot to get in the way. February 13, 8 p.m., $5.
Free admission at Mob Museum Has it been three years already? The Mob Museum celebrates its anniversary with free admission for locals on Saturday, but be a pal and drop a $3 donation.

But these indie rockers win, for the complexity sneaked into easy melodies and the sound spectrum whipping from tinny to lush, buoyant to plaintive. With David Huntsberger, February 12, 8 p.m., $16-$20, Backstage Bar & Billiards.
Kodo One Earth Tour: Mystery Drum lines aren’t just for marching bands and teen movies.

February 12, 7:30 p.m., $29-$99, Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall.
SNL 40th Anniversary Special The fact that Eddie Murphy, who hasn’t shown up for any previous Saturday Night Live reunion special, is going to make this one is reason enough to watch. But Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Bill Murray and pretty much everyone else is scheduled to appear, too—including musical guests like Paul Simon, Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Justin Timberlake. February 15, 5 p.m., NBC.
