    Hear street art expert and author Gregory Snyder talk about his new book on New York graffiti.

    TAG, YOU'RE IT: McNally Jackson Books hosts Gregory Snyder, the author of Graffiti Lives: Beyond the Tag in New York's Urban Underground as he talks about the Gotham graffiti scene, decodes the Neckface mythology, and discusses the rise of "scratchiti." We made those last two up, but probably that's what'll happen. 7PM.

    FRENCH DIP: You have just three days left to catch Jean-Luc Godard's pulpy, devilish Made in U.S.A., a gumshoe lark starring Anna Karina that's only been shown once before in the States (where it's supposedly - hilariously - set, as Paris tries to pass for… Atlantic City?). Film Forum, ends 1/22, times vary.

    ACH, JA: Head to Cake Shop, where our current favorite German pop band, Locas in Love, will crank out their melancholy tunes for an audience of smitten kittens who probably don't understand German (like us) but just want to sway and swoon (like us). 8PM.
