PATHMARK CELEBRACION DE LA HERENCIA HISPANA

From the horn-driven "hard salsa" of Jimmy Bosch to the sweet guitar-based lilt of Mexican mariachi, from Andean instrumentalists to Nuyorican freestyle balladeers, this bill is muy eclectic—Pan-American diversity at its best. Featuring George Lamond, Amarfis Aquino y la Banda Atakke, Mariachi Real de Mexico, and Tahuantinsuyo. COOPER

JHUMPA LAHIRI

Like a kiss or caress in a Hindi movie," writes Pulitzer Prize winner Lahiri in her new novel, The Namesake, "a husband's name is something intimate and therefore unspoken, cleverly patched over." Which explains why my wife simply calls me "Bub." As in Lahiri's debut collection, Interpreter of Maladies, The Namesake navigates the world of Indian American immigrants—here through a protagonist improbably named Gogol Ganguli. DE KRAP

YOUSSOU N'DOUR

Having canceled a major tour after Bush Inc. set about liberating his co-religionists in the former Fertile Crescent, N'Dour graces our anti-war town with two relatively intimate acoustic shows. Aided as always by Super Étoile, he's guaranteed to work up a groove more compelling than a gun to the head even so. CHRISTGAU

At 7 and 10, Zankel Hall at Carnegie, Seventh Avenue between 56th and 57th streets, 212.247.7800
