Only Brooklyn Bowl possesses such fearlessness in the face of puns (and, fine, the pins) to pull off Festival of Strikes, a holy benefit for JDub Records. And your attention will be 7-10 split (zing!) between the action on the alleys and the solid entertainment lineup: comedian MC Eugene Mirman, arcane and arresting Spanish indie rockers DeLeon, and local world/roots mega-collective the Sway Machinery (guitarist Jeremiah Lockwood of Balkan Beat Box and Brian Chase of Yeah Yeah Yeahs are members). Mazel tov.
