When picking and choosing which Transmissions to attend (assuming you can’t make them all), one rule of thumb is if it’s John Hughes tribute night, you have to go. Obviously there will be plenty of Hughes-era music blasting from the speakers courtesy of DJ Jake Rudh (The Smiths, Psychedelic Furs, New Order, OMD, Ramones, etc.), and his movies will be played on the overhead screens so you can fully get into the Huges mood. Dress like your favorite character (or at the very least as Hughesian as you can) and get ready to dance the night away. They recommend this video for some inspiration, and we couldn’t agree more. 10 p.m. Free. —EDJ
