Kung fools

Chow down on this. The Brooklyn Academy of Music has been screening a film series celebrating Hong Kong actor, writer, and director Stephen Chow, and this is the last weekend to catch some of his funny flicks. Tonight, it is the 2004 kung fu film parody “Kung Fu Hustle.” No more soccer! (No, really, “Shaolin Soccer” was last week.)

2 pm, 4:30 pm, 7 pm, 9 pm at BAM Rose Cinemas [30 Lafayette Ave. between Ashland Place and St. Felix Street in Fort Greene, (718) 636–4100,]. $14.

Get fresh

La di da di, Bedford-Stuyvesant likes to party! Hip–hop legends Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh will be the headliners at this year’s Restoration Rocks Music Festival. The free concert, which serves as the kick-off event for the week-long Bed-Stuy Alive festival, will also feature actor Gbenga Akinagbe and comedian Brooklyn Mike Troy on hosting duties, plus plenty of local acts.

Noon–5 pm at Bedford–Stuyvesant Restoration (1368 Fulton St. between Brooklyn and New York avenues in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Free.


Oct. 12

Bushwick boogie

Go back to a time of disco infernos and actual infernos. Photographer Meryl Meisler’s exhibit “A Tale of Two Cities: Disco Era Bushwick” wraps up with a party at Bizarre Bushwick. The show juxtaposes photos she took in the late ’70s and early ’80s of New York City’s thriving disco scene with burned out buildings and local residents in Bushwick. Pick up a signed copy of the book version of the show while you’re there.

7 pm at Bizarre Bushwick [12 Jefferson St. between Myrtle and Bushwick avenues in Bushwick, (347) 915–2717,]. Free.


Oct. 13


If my answers frighten you, then you should cease asking scary questions. Answer some less scary questions when TrivWork celebrates the 20th anniversary of “Pulp Fiction” with a Quentin Tarantino trivia night. There will be themed prizes up for grabs and the whole thing is free, so get in early if you want a seat.

8 pm at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third streets in Gowanus, (718) 643–6510,]. Free.


Oct. 15

Brass tracks

Feeling horn-y? Honk NYC!, the annual city-wide music festival of brass bands and cacophonous street music, officially blasts off tonight. The opening party will feature locals Frank London’s Klezma Brass All-Stars, PitchBlak Brass Band, and Raya Brass Band, alongside Russians Pakava It’, and Les Muses Tanguent from France. Bring your dancing shoes — and your earplugs.
