Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 5:30 p.m. August 21

If there were a song to play every time the seasons changed, it could probably be "Queens" by Seattle rap duo THEESatisfaction. The tune's positive energy and strength of purpose undeniably evoke change, transition, and internal growth, a vibe further enhanced by the duo's left-field, cosmic... More >>

West 50s Music

George Clinton

Pier 15 : 7:00 p.m. August 21

There sure will be a whole lot of rhythm going ‘round when George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic come to town. Fronted by the eccentric and wild Clinton, the music collective comprised of his two legendary funk bands, Parliament and Funkadelic, which released multiple classics like... More >>

Financial District Music

Mamma Roma

Casa Belvedere : 8:00 p.m. August 21

The great director Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, the forthcoming Welcome to New York) will premiere his long-gestating Pier Paolo Pasolini biopic (starring Willem Dafoe) at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. One way to prepare for such a hotly-anticipated item is, of course, to... More >>

Zevious+U Sco+Dama Libra+Epistasis+Period

Saint Vitus : 8:00 p.m. August 21

Myriad iterations of avant-jazz and metal-mongering sickness is represented this evening in a monster bill guaranteeing the motherlode of head-exploding notes. Brooklyn represents in the form of Period—drums sage Mike Pride and Charlie Looker's (of experi-metallers, Psalm Zero)... More >>

Brooklyn Music

All Them Witches

The Mercury Lounge : 9:30 p.m. August 21

For being the first American group to be signed to the German psychedelic/stoner rock Elektrohasch Records, All Them Witches sound pretty damn American. The Nashville-based group deals in doomy, heavy-hitting reverb and sludgy guitar work colored by bluesy Southern rock elements and the... More >>

Lower East Side Music

Excursion to the Explorers Club

Explorers Club : 11:00 a.m. August 22

When it comes to highfalutin’ societies with strict entry policies, The Explorer’s Club might be the strictest. That is, unless you consider arctic expeditions, deep-sea diving, rainforest traversing, and space travel all in a day’s work. The intrepid men of the Explorers Club... More >>

East 70s Recreation, Tours

Dead Gaze

South Street Seaport : 6:00 p.m. August 22

Dead Gaze's Cole Furlow's is a one-man noise-pop wrecking crew, pinching off distorted gems that lodge in memory as easily as they defy categorization. In his hands, abrupt punk melodies churn and roil under geysers of feedback and effects, but his effortlessly direct, bitter voice slices... More >>

Financial District Music

Afropunk Festival

Commodore Barry Park : 12:00 p.m. August 23

Finding a free, two-day music festival with a hefty lineup like the one featured at this year’s AfroPunk Fest is like finding gold. Maybe pure gold is the best way to describe an annual show that supports the involvement of black people in various alternative music genres, which span... More >>

Brooklyn Heights Festivals, Music

Recess New York Bocce Ball Tournament

Governors Island : 12:00 p.m. August 23

Maybe the only truly Italian tradition that The Godfather omitted was having the dons decide who would run New York with a game of bocce ball. Dating back to ancient Rome, bocce is played on a court eight to 13 feet wide and about 90 feet long. It involves bowling a bocce ball (round, about... More >>

Financial District Sports - Participatory, Recreation

Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival

Fort Greene Park : 2:00 p.m. August 23

At the foot of the Prison Ship Martyr’s monument at Fort Greene Park, you look down to see a great tiered staircase (with joggers sprinting up, down, up, down) and straight ahead for fantastic views of Manhattan cushioned between trees. There’s no better setting for today’s... More >>

Astronomy Night

Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum Store : 7:30 p.m. August 23

Mars and Saturn are conjunct this August; astrologically, this means that both the planet of impulsive action and the planet of careful deliberation exert their energies on us, causing conflict and stress, but also the potential to be very productive. But astrology is all interpretation: What... More >>

West 40s Recreation

John Talabot+JDH & Dave P

Output : 10:00 p.m. August 23

The popular Spanish DJ's breakthrough album came out in 2012, but it's the kind of deep listen that can keep you busy for years as you fish through all the crevices he's buried under reverb and a foreground patchwork of sampled vocals. Once inside those tiny caves, you'll find in equal measure... More >>

Brooklyn Music


B.B. King Blues Club & Grill : 12:00 a.m. August 23

When “Can’t Deny It” was first released, it wasn’t the cool, cocky delivery, chipped-tooth flow, or Nate Dogg’s Makavelian hook that captured everyone’s attention; similarly, “Young’n (Holla Back)” was always more than the sum of its slick... More >>

West 40s Music

The Gluten Free Takedown

The Bell House : 2:00 p.m. August 24

Although there has been an increase in awareness about celiac disease, it’s still hard out there for the gluten intolerant: Just try finding a brownie that’s both safe to eat and doesn’t taste like dirt. Today, the Takedowns, a nationwide series of home chef competitions,... More >>

Brooklyn Food and Drink

Arcade Fire

Barclays Center : 7:30 p.m. August 24

Arcade Fire is a band that has managed to preserve the concept of “indie rock,” even while they are playing massive arenas like the Barclays Center, as they are tonight. This carefully-constructed image and ethos is reliant on their ever-evolving style and peculiar band dynamics.... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Taka Kigawa

Le Poisson Rouge : 7:30 p.m. August 25

In honor of Pierre Boulez’s 90th birthday next year, Taka Kigawa performs the composer-conductor’s complete works for piano, an instrument with which this modernist’s modernist had a life-long, if intermittent, relationship. But Kigawa, who has already toured Elliott... More >>

Greenwich Village Music

K. Flay

Brooklyn Bowl : 8:00 p.m. August 25

Often identified as rap's resident smart girl, K. Flay's got the brains and flow to put much of mainstream hip-hop to shame. K. Flay, real name Kristine Flaherty, grew up in suburban Chicago before attending Stanford University, where she began toying with her own brand of rap music as a... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Masters of Social Gastronomy

Littlefield : 7:30 p.m. August 26

Now that everyone and their mother has a Sodastream, the creation of carbonated beverages seems a lot less mysterious. But soft drinks in America have a fascinating and surprisingly sordid history. You have likely heard about Coke’s original, scandalous ingredient, but perhaps not how it... More >>

Park Slope Food and Drink, Talks

Cheap Trick

The Paramount : 8:00 p.m. August 26

Though classic rock heroes Cheap Trick have spent the better part of their career non-stop touring, the band's show at the New York State Fair has the added bonus of unidentifiable fried fair food. Since the group's heyday in the late '70s and '80s, Cheap Trick has been consistently producing... More >>

Long Island Music

Perfect Pussy+Joanna Gruesome+Potty Mouth+Love of Everything

Shea Stadium BK : 8:00 p.m. August 26

With a sound as confrontational as their name, Perfect Pussy take no prisoners in their live shows, with vocalist Meredith Graves spitting out often incomprehensible lyrics in a speedballing burst of energy. Although her voice is almost obliterated by the thick wall of thundering noise from her... More >>

Brooklyn Music

The Polyphonic Spree

Brooklyn Bowl : 8:00 p.m. August 26

A band whose staying power perhaps lies more in their gimmicks than content—twenty-plus members donning white choir robes to black militant getups producing oversized pop songs—the Polyphonic Spree have proven to still have a place in today's indie rock scene, if only for their cult... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Matt Mitchell Quartet

Korzo : 10:30 p.m. August 26

The pianist is playing with everyone these days, perhaps one reason why he becomes more authoritative. Some of his music has a tendency to be knotty, but engagingly so. Consider it a puzzle of sorts, and consider drummer Dan Weiss a key decoder. Both he and Mitchell are dedicated to the kind of... More >>

South Park Slope Music

Chelsea Hodson, May-Lan Tan, Elizabeth Mikesch

Word Bookstore : 7:00 p.m. August 27

We used to think the Twilight series’ central relationship seemed wildly abusive, that is until someone popped a Fifty Shades of Gray audiobook into the cassette player on one long, increasingly awkward car trip. Fetishes are super, especially when they come from a happy, self-loving... More >>

"Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness"

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 2

What do Ritter Sport chocolate bars have in common with a woman wearing a lemon yellow towel wrapped around her head? When photographed by Christopher Williams, they are both completely absent of personality; 100 percent product. In “The Production Line of Happiness,” the MoMa... More >>

New Museum of Contemporary Art : 11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until September 27

“Here and Elsewhere,” the New Museum’s latest building-wide exhibition, gets its title from the 1976 Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin, and Anne-Marie Miéville pro-Palestinian documentary Ici et ailleurs. Much like the namesake film, it focuses on modern... More >>
