It’s a jam-packed Thursday! Here are your options:

1) PUNKS WANNA DANCE, TOO
Is anything more fun than dancing to The Ramones? (NO.) Let’s hope they’re in rotation at Eli Mile High Club’s Punk Rock Dance Party, hosted by DJ Smooth Hopperator. 6 p.m., TBA

2) MUST-SEE CLASSIC FILMS
Django Unchained and Hitchcock used them as source material; now see the real things: Sergio Leone’s classic Duck, You Sucker, part of BAM’s “The Hills Run Red: Italian Westerns, Leone, and Beyond” series, screens at PFA. 7 p.m., $9.50.

Meanwhile, over at Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, check out Hitchcock’s Psycho, screening tonight only. 7 p.m., $8.

3) THE FRATERNAL DYNAMIC
Why do some brothers fight incessantly while others go to extreme ends to protect each other? That’s the subject of George Howe Colt’s new book, Brothers: On His Brothers and Brothers in History, which he’ll discuss tonight at Mrs. Dalloway’s. 7:30 p.m., free.

4) COMEDY WITHOUT BORDERS
A wheelchair comedian, a “little person” comedian, a stuttering comedian, and a blind comedian walk into a room. The result? The “Comedians with Disabilities Act,” which features Michael O'Connell, Steve Danner, Nina G, and Eric Mee. At Kimball’s Carnival. 8 p.m., free.

5) REPORTERS ON CRIME REPORTING
How does the media cover crime in Oakland and are they doing a good job? The Express’ own Robert Gammon will join a panel that includes the Tribune’s Tammerlin Drummond and the Chronicle’s Chip Johnson to answer those questions (and more). It should be a lively evening of discussion at Temple Sinai. 8 p.m., free.
