Double play

For those who have wondered what happens when you combine Aristotle and Gertrude Stein (and haven’t we all?), five-time Obie Award-winning actor David Greenspan is performing “the Argument” — based on the famous philosopher’s “Poetics” and the essays of Gerald F. Else — and Stein’s lecture “Plays” in one show at the Bushwick Starr.

8 pm at the Bushwick Starr (207 Starr St. between Irving and Wyckoff avenues in Bushwick,, $18.


December 22

Beasts of Bourbon St.

Know what it means to miss New Orleans when the Big Easy’s renowned Preservation Hall Jazz Band visits the Brooklyn Bowl. The French Quarter legends will make Wythe Avenue feel like Frenchmen Street, blowing tunes such as “Go To The Mardi Gras” and “Bourbon Street Parade.”

8 pm at Brooklyn Bowl [61 Wythe Ave. at North 12th Street in Williamsburg, (718) 963–3369,] $20.


December 23

Flame on

For those who like their Christmas a little on the weird side, bar-theater Videology is screening the Flaming Lips’ 2008 sci-fi film, “Christmas on Mars,” followed by the band’s 1997 album, “Zaireeka,” which requires four different CDs to be played simultaneously.

8 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. between South First and South Second streets in Williamsburg, (718) 782–3468,]. Free.


December 25

Mix master

Cap off your Christmas celebrations — or avoid them altogether — at Lulu’s in Greenpoint, where ukulele-strumming crooner Patsy Monteleone will be playing Christmas tunes while his daughter Ani serves holiday cocktails, including the “Cousin Vince,” made with brandy, cream, and nutmeg, and the “Uncle Charlie,” which is really just a shot of Wild Turkey.

8 pm at Lulu’s [113 Franklin St. at Greenpoint Avenue in Greenpoint, (718) 383–6000,]. Free.
