Friday: Urban Horse Thieves, I-Town recording artists, at Micawber's happy hour, 6 p.m. 118 N. Aurora St.
"The Departed", Regal Pyramid Cinema, Pyramid Mall. A well-received new film, notable for the first-time collaboration of Jack Nicholson and director Martin Scorsese. No period piece nor high-minded oeuvre, just a movie about good guys, bad guys, honor, and betrayal, from two of the masters, with a great supporting cast. (Note: two and a half hours long. So get the large popcorn and Mountain Dew. Due to the length, evening showtime is at 8 pm, and 11:20 on Friday and Saturday. Matiness at 1:00 and 4:30.)
Saturday: Burns Sisters CD release party. Castaways, 413 Old Taughannock Blvd., 8 p.m.
Cindy Kallet and Grey Larson. Presented by the Cornell Folk Song Society. Original songs, traditional Irish music, Scandinavian fiddle duets, and old-timey American folk. 8 p.m., 165 McGraw Hall, Cornell U. Tickets $17 at the door, $15 at Small World Music.
