Nov. 7

Femme fatale

See the way she walks, hear the way she talks! Cabaret artist Tammy Faye Starlite brings her critically acclaimed tribute to 1960s singer and pop-icon Nico, “Nico: Underground,” to the Brooklyn Academy of Music for one night. Starlite will be Nico’s mirror as she performs songs by Lou Reed, Jim Morrison, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, and others.

9 pm at the Brooklyn Academy of Music [30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene, 718.636.4100,]. Free.


Nov. 8

You only ad-lib twice

Ten Bones Theatre Company is already known for its ambitious (and hilarious) attempts to perform films such as “Jaws” and “Psycho” entirely from memory, but now the improv troupe is raising the stakes — endeavouring to recreate the entire James Bond oeuvre in one evening. Do we expect them to talk? No, Mr. Bond, we expect them to make a whole lot of stupid stuff up on the spot.

9:30 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. at S. First Street in Williamsburg, (718) 782–3468,]. $5.


Nov. 9

Get three coffins ready

Have some spaghetti for Sunday brunch — a spaghetti western, that is. Nitehawk Cinema celebrates the 50th anniversary of Clint Eastwood classic “A Fistful of Dollars” with special brunch screenings on Saturday and Sunday. Both showings will kick off with a performance by the band TarantinosNYC, which specializes in music from surf, soul, spy, and western films.

11:30 am at Nitehawk Cinema [136 Metropolitan Ave. near Berry Street in Williamsburg, (718) 384–3980,]. $16.


Nov. 11

Ice, ice baby

If your kid is begging you to watch “Frozen” just one more time, let it go, let it go … to Barclays Center, to see the entire film performed as a “Disney on Ice” show. If nothing else, it is the first Mouse House movie to actually make sense as an ice dance. And c’mon, that snowman is pretty damn funny.

7 pm at Barclays Center [620 Atlantic Ave. at Flatbush Avenue in Prospect Heights,, (917) 618–6100]. $15–$195.


Nov. 13

Knives out

If there is one thing better than discovering an amazing new restaurant, it is reading a deliciously scathing review of a terrible one. British restaurant critic and “Top Chef Masters” judge Jay Rayner is coming to Brooklyn not to enjoy our fine cuisine, but to give a talk about why we love mean food reviews so much (Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar, anyone?) and to read some of the nastiest ones his own work has ever received.

8 pm at Union Hall [702 Union St. between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope, (718) 638–4400,]. $10.
