March. 13

Space jam

It’s a space party, Jim, but not as we know it. Brooklyn experimental theater company Title:Point is throwing a bash that really lives up to its name of 100% Outer Space Party. There will be a talk by an astrophysicist, a reading of space-themed erotica, a Neil deGrasse Tyson musical, live sci-fi music, a space photobooth, space T-shirt printing, space drinks, and more space things.

8 pm at Silent Barn (603 Bushwick Ave. between Melrose and Jefferson streets in Bushwick,, $10.


March 14

Blades of glory

Forget the Great White Way — head to the great white ice-skating rink at the Prospect Park, which is hosting a Winter Broadway afternoon. Skate along to Broadway hits and win tickets to shows.

1–4 pm LeFrak Center at Lakeside [171 East Dr. at Ocean Avenue in Prospect Park, (718) 462–0010,]. $6 (plus skate rental).


March 15

Big beer

Microbrews are so passe. The Diamond bar is hosting a macro-brew blind tasting contest, where you can win a $20 bar tab by identifying four mass-produced beers — like Budweiser and Miller — on taste alone. The competition also coincides with a chili cook-off — $5 lets you sample all the entrants and vote for a winner.

3–5 pm at the Diamond [43 Franklin St. at Calyer Street in Greenpoint, (718) 383–5030,]. $5.


March 17

The mope show

Break out your best flannel and your broodiest facial expressions — Sebadoh, the original angsty ’90s lo-fi band, is in town. Lou Barlow and co. released their first album in 14 years back in 2013 — just listen politely through those songs while waiting for the classics.

9 pm at the Music Hall of Williamsburg [66 N. Sixth St. between Wythe and Kent avenues in Williamsburg, (718) 486–5400,]. $20.


March 19

Back in hardback

The former Bard of Boerum Hill, Jonathan Lethem, returns to his hometown for the New York launch of his latest short story collection “Lucky Alan and Other Stories.”

7 pm at PowerHouse Arena [37 Main St. between Water and Front streets in Dumbo, (718) 666–3049,]. Free.
