    Mr. Mephistopheles himself Jon Lovitz yuks it up at the Laugh Factory, on Wednesday, January 7.

    YEAH, THAT'S THE TICKET: Jon Lovitz was a bright light on "Saturday Night Live" back in the day; we're still devoted to that whole devil-goes-to-The-People's-Court sketch. Smarmy, hilarious stuff. Want to see the slightly menacing magic live? He's at the Laugh Factory. Wednesday, January 7. 8001 Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood. 323-656-1336

    MUSIC FOR EXPERIMENTAL FILM: Guitarists (and true cutting-edge visionaries) Tom Verlaine and Jimmy Rip lend their slightly retro-y, Western-tinged licks to short films galore. Cinefamily took a break over the holidays and have definitely returned with a memorable first program for '09. Wednesday, January 7, 8PM and 10:15PM. $18. Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles. 323-655-2510

    AFRICAN RHYTHMS: Guitar-y vibes and globally tinged beats are hallmarks of the Palm Wine Boys' lively tunes. Hear them at Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts for one night only, on Wednesday, January 7. 12700 Center Court Drive, Cerritos. 562-916-8501
