Bad boys of music and food, Michael Ruffino and Anthony Bourdain, are coming together for the launch of Ruffino’s latest book, “Adios, Motherf***cker.” tonight in Brooklyn.

Heavy rock fans know Ruffino as the bassist for The Unband. The book takes readers on “a raucous tear through the netherworld of heavy rock, populated with crack-smoking Girl Scouts, collegiate bedlamites, shotgun-toting barmaids, a rodent-chomping music CEO, a beer-drinking chimp, and headbangers by the horde, while on tour with giants of heavy metal including Dio, Motörhead, Anthrax, Def Leppard, and a Who Was Who of reunited ‘80s hair bands.”

It was published today as part of Bourdain’s newest Ecco book series.

The world famous chef and “No Reservations” host will be moderating the event, which takes place at 7 p.m. at The Powerhouse Arena.

For $20, you can join the conversation and score your own copy of “Adios, Motherf***er.”

Whether you’re a die-hard fan or just looking for some fun, stop by The Knitting Factory’s fifth installment of Drunken Master, “a celebration of the best, and worst, action flicks the world has to offer.”

Tonight, they’re watching “John Wick,” starring Keanu Reeves.

Not familiar? Wick, played by Reeves, is an assassin who returns from retirement after his wife’s death to seek revenge on the Russian mobsters who stole his car and killed his puppy – the last gift from his late love.

Event organizers call it “probably the finest Western action film of the past few years.”

Sip on themed drink specials while you watch and compare notes during the discussion afterward.

The free screening starts at 8 p.m.
