Catch a one-night-only screening of “A Fat Wreck” tonight at the Sie Film Center, 2510 E. Colfax Ave. The film tells the story of how NOFX’s Fat Mike and his ex-wife, Erin Kelly-Burkett, started and ran the Fat Wreck Chords label.

In addition to showing the film, they’ll have a Q&A with the director Shaun M. Colón, moderated by Damian Alexander Burford of the Mostly Harmless podcast.

The event will last from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $7 for Denver Film Society members and $11 for nonmembers.

Next up in the Mayan Theatre’s series of horror movies: Alfred Hitchcock’s “Frenzy.”

The film about a serial rapist and murder and a man trying to clear his name was the first Hitchcock movie to get an R rating.

It’s showing at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Mayan, 110 Broadway. Tickets are $8.50.

Tonight, Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St., is hosting a “comedy tribute to everyone’s favorite sad boy.”

Yup: It’s Morrissey.

The show will feature John Bueno, Katie Parks, Cory Helie, Ian Douglas Terry and more. Joke-telling will happen from 8 to 10 p.m. There is no cover.

Right on the heels of a new album release, Phantogram is bringing its dark pop to the Fillmore Auditorium, 1510 Clarkson St.

Doors are at 7 p.m. and tickets start at $68.
