Tonight! We Are Plastic Ono Band, Laura Veirs, and VV Brown


Tonight at BAM, Yoko Ono revives her Plastic Ono Band, after 30-odd years of hibernation, with fresh blood that includes some of her own (her son Sean’s got a hand in it.) A gang of adventurous alt-rockers will frame her signature, pre-verbal, sound-speckled poetry at this dress rehearsal for tomorrow’s sold-out fete there, with a host of guest stars slated for both. Elsewhere, Laura Veirs’ fragile folk, reinforced with confident vocals, soothes any post-V-Day trauma at the Mercury Lounge. But if you’ve got serious romantic frustrations to vent, your remedy’s at Brooklyn Bowl, where you can hurl bowling balls as London import VV Brown performs punchy heartbreak tunes bubbling over with retro video-game sounds.
