The Bad Plus

Skirball Center for the Performing Arts : 7:30 p.m. October 23

It hasn’t been all Blondie, Sabbath and Nirvana. Because they dig sophisticated blends of eloquent jitter-swing and stormy rumination, The Bad Plus — the rogue piano/bass/drums outfit initially heralded for exploding pop and rock nuggets — has occasionally peppered its sets... More >>

Soho Music

First Aid Kit

Hammerstein Ballroom : 7:00 p.m. October 24

The gorgeous, lilting harmonies of Johanna and Klara Soderberg—the sisters better known as First Aid Kit—will grace Hammerstein Ballroom's stage tonight. The Swedish-born Soderberg's first real entryway into the world of music was a cover of the Fleet Foxes song "Tiger Mountain... More >>

Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade

Tompkins Square Park : 12:00 p.m. October 25

It's the best parade in the city, paws down. Now in its 24th season, in a city where dogs are dressed in clothes year-round, the costumes at the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade are more creative than ever. Last year we saw a lot of TV stars—among them the “Hounds of... More >>

The Poetry Brothel's 7th Annual Masquerade Ball

Back Room : 8:00 p.m. October 26

No heavy, monotonous recitations of verse here: the Poetry Brothel’s performers double as “whores,” shaping for guests an immersive artistic experience inspired by turn of the century bordellos. Tonight, cast aside the usual Halloween antics by taking part in the Poetry... More >>

Chinatown Burlesque, Poetry

Weezer

Bowery Ballroom : 8:00 p.m. October 27

Is the “Blue Album” the best all time? Is that even a question anymore? Yeah, Pinkerton was under-appreciated and may have pegged emo a good seven years ahead of its weepy golden age. Yeah, Maladroit was a critical darling and half the internet will explain to you why. Yeah, yeah,... More >>

Lower East Side Music

Alexis Coe

Astoria Bookshop : 7:00 p.m. October 28

America has always been transfixed by the psychotic woman (Amanda Bynes, Miley Cyrus, the cast of every Real Housewives locale ever), blasting out whole chunks of airtime to exhibit their instability as if to proclaim "See?! See why one of you can't be president?!" Back in 1892 it was... More >>

Astoria Literary Events

Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper

Madison Square Garden : 7:30 p.m. October 28

Going to see Alice Cooper in Atlantic City when you're ten-years-old, we can attest, kind of messes up your idea of what a concert should be for the rest of your life. Basically anything that doesn't involve wild stage theatrics, varied pyrotechnics, giant animatronic Frankensteins, live boa... More >>

See it Big!: Horror

Museum of the Moving Image : 3:00 p.m. daily from October 25 until October 31

Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca

Joyce Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily from October 29 until November 9

If you ran into her in the supermarket, you might mistake Soledad Barrio for just another solid, unglamorous mother of teenage girls. But onstage the brilliant leading dancer of Noche Flamenca radiates passion and power, transcending all the clichés of flamenco to create drama and... More >>

Fortress of Solitude

Public Theater : 8:00 p.m. daily until November 8

Music factors prominently into Jonathan Lethem's Fortress of Solitude, in which the central, superhero-obesessed best buds-in-the-face-of-rampant-gentrification Dylan and Mingus jam to The Sugarhill Gang, Lou Reed, N.W.A., and Run DMC. So it's no wonder that this, of all Lethem's locally-set... More >>

Take a celebrated novel about a tiny tot with telekinesis. Add a cult songwriter and a famously dark playwright. And what do you get? Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s story, one of the most spiky, tender, and delightful children’s entertainments to... 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 >>

Indian Ink

Roundabout Underground : 7:30 p.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until November 30

Ever since 1993’s math-laced, century-spanning Arcadia, we’ve loved it when Tom Stoppard shakes up our boring old temporal sensibilities, finding subtle ways to connect characters despite their being separated by wide berths of time and space. In 1995 he did it again with Indian... More >>

West 40s Theater

Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire

The Metropolitan Museum of Art : 10:00 a.m. daily until February 1

Wearing all black may be de rigueur in New York or Paris, but the girl wearing all black wasn’t always so cool. “As a woman of sexual experience without marital constraints, she was often imagined as a potential threat to the social order,” says Harold Koda, curator of the... More >>

Imagine Science Film Festival

Google New York : 7:00 p.m. daily until October 24

A week-long affair, the 7th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival opens tonight, taking the concept of time as its central theme. The programming is defined by its admirable diversity — the slate comprises work from 20 different countries, and almost half of the films scheduled to screen... More >>

Garden of Unearthly Delights

Japan Society : 11:00 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 11

Renowned artist Manabu Ikeda uses a mere pen to depict uprooted cities collapsing into themselves, with details like derailed trains and kites stuck in trees. They are, essentially, the most breathtaking doodles you’ll ever see. In Garden of Unearthly Delights, the Japan Society brings... More >>

Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 4

The “Brooklyn arts scene” is a vague term thrown around by real estate agents, based on the notion that art is made in some Bushwick loft when its residents aren’t on molly brandishing glowsticks. Crossing Brooklyn: Art From Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond, an exhibit at the... More >>

“Somebody Come and Play”: 45 Years of Sesame Street

New York Public Library for the Performing Arts : 12:00 p.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 31

More than any other cultural or political figure of the past half-century, Big Bird can be considered the great uniter. No other teacher has influenced a wider swath of children — spreading the Sesame sermon far and wide, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, race, or economic bracket.... More >>

Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until February 15

It’s the same argument every Fashion Week, every runway show: “Sure, it’s beautiful. But who would actually wear that?” Wearing high fashion is about as much the point as hanging the Mona Lisa in your rec room or hoisting a Rodin into your five-story walk-up. Such is the... More >>

Robert Gober: The Heart is Not a Metaphor

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. every Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until January 18

Sometimes a sink is just a sink. And sometimes — in the craftsmanship of Robert Gober, at least — it is memories remade and recombined. “I can remember,” Gober once wrote, “a recurring dream of a roomful of sinks, the fact that a friend was dying of AIDS.”... More >>

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder

Walter Kerr Theatre : 7:00 p.m. every Tue., Thu.; 2:00 p.m. every Wed., Sat.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Fri., Sat.; 3:00 p.m. every Sun.

Any chance to see Tony–winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) on the boards is not to be missed, but his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder should be a treat eight times over. In this story, gentleman Monty (played by Bryce Pinkham) has... More >>

The Velocity of Autumn

Booth Theatre : 7:00 p.m. every Tue., Thu.; 7:30 p.m. every Wed.; 2:00 p.m. every Wed., Sat.; 8:00 p.m. every Fri., Sat.; 3:00 p.m. every Sun.

The leafy streets of Park Slope are unlikely to suffer much in the way of bomb threats, but in Eric Coble’s play, a spirited widow threatens to blow up her brownstone rather than leave it. Estelle Parsons stars as the retiree with a penchant for Molotov cocktails and Stephen Spinella as... More >>

Kinky Boots

Al Hirschfeld Theatre : 3:00 p.m. every Sun.; 7:00 p.m. every Tue., Thu.; 2:00 p.m. every Wed., Sat.; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Fri., Sat.

Some of us have quite enough trouble 
simply walking in six-inch stilettos. But to sing and dance and act in them? Really, someone should hand out honorary Tonys to the Kinky Boots cast just for trying. This new tuner draws its inspiration from a 
recent British film, itself based... More >>
