agree  Noni Gilbert: Miguel's suggestion to distinguish is good - perhaps "otras celebraciones". Shame we have to lose the colourfulness of shindig, but the colourful Spanish options are too specific.

A small party, not quite full scale. Generally a shindig consists of 5-20 people hanging out at the host's house, but they may be held at other locations such as a beach. Shindigs almost always involve alcoholic beverages, usually beer.

A shindig usually does not escalate into a large full scale party because it is meant to be a low key night, avoiding any complications such as cleaning up vomit, unwanted guests, picking up trash the rude guests leave lying wherever they drop it, putting everything back in its proper place, eliciting attention fom neighbors and local law enforcement, etc.
My mom was out for the day, so I called some of my friends and we had a little shindig.
