KID KOALA

Meditative music for turntable, vinyl, and bent finger. Kid Koala furthers his drunk-trumpet style on his second full-length, Some of My Best Friends Are DJs. Heard at a distance, it can all seem like whimsy without substance. Reconstructed live, though, it's a wonderwork of pastiche and dexterity. Also: DJ P-Love, DJ Jester, Lederhosen Lucil. CARAMANICA

Theater

'TABOO'

London makes strange things happen both in and to this new musical about the swinging club scene of the '80s. George O'Dowd, better known as Boy George, wrote the score (some then, some now) and stars in the show, but not as himself; the new transatlanticized book is by Charles Busch; the choreographer, making his Broadway debut, is downtown's Mark Dendy.

Music

REGINA CARTER

A violinist of great appeal, she swings hard, often improvising with a lyrical charm and a sound that has grown increasingly sure over time. For this concert, she will perform arrangements from Paganini: After a Dream, backed by a 16-piece orchestra conducted by Ettore Strata and involving several guests. She will play the Guarneri "Cannon," a violin rarely allowed out of Genoa. GIDDINS

GEORGE PIPER DANCES

You won't find a Mr. Piper on the roster of this British troupe making its New York debut: The company's moniker fuses the middle names of Michael Nunn and William Trevitt—a/k/a the Ballet Boyz—former Royal Ballet dancers who bring us works by Christopher Wheeldon and Russell Maliphant (both fellow Royal alums) and William Forsythe. ZIMMER

At 8, and November 4 through 9, Joyce Theater, 75 Eighth Avenue, 212.242.0800

Music

RAEKWON

Here comes the Chef again, cooking up something marvelous. His forthcoming album The Lex Diamonds Story is, by all accounts, a return to his Cuban Linx glory days. Like his spiritual cousin Ghostface Killah—also slated for a powerful return in the coming cold season—Rae's lingually fascinated with the possibilities of sheisty doings in the 'hood. Hope Ghost himself drops in to commiserate. With C-Rayz Walz & Ice Water Inc. CARAMANICA

BILL JACOBSON

Jacobson delves further into the sublime with a group of soft-focus color photos so luminous they seem to glow from within. Whether his subject is the stormy sky over a country road, the sunlight glinting down a narrow corridor of buildings, or a seated nude, Jacobson carves out a space as charged as it is contemplative—truly a world of his own. He uses color with deft assurance, giving the work a blushing, powdery tactility you want to sink right into. ALETTI

Through November 29, Julie Saul Gallery, 535 West 22nd Street, 212.627.2410

Theater

'THE LONG CHRISTMAS RIDE HOME'

"Tis the season, apparently, when Thornton turns wilder." This play by Paula Vogel—her first since How I Learned to Drive —concerns a suburban family swept into a cosmic car crash. Randy Graff, Mark Blum, and Enid Graham lead director Mark Brokaw's plummily promising human cast; their puppet colleagues are designed by Basil Twist. FEINGOLD

Opens today, Vineyard Theatre, 108 East 15th Street, 212.353.0303

'HENRY IV'

This is the version where they don't just stand still and say the lines. Dakin Matthews's condensation of Shakespeare's two-part drama of the prince with two daddies and two lifestyles, directed by Jack O'Brien, features a high-gloss cast headed by Kevin Kline as Falstaff. With Dana Ivey, Richard Easton, Ethan Hawke, Audra MacDonald, and Michael Hayden also involved, a phat night should be had by all. FEINGOLD

Previews begin today, opens November 20, Vivian Beaumont Theatre, Lincoln Center, 212.239.6277
