March. 27

Felt up

Brooklyn has seen King Kong burlesque, bicycle burlesque, and surrealist burlesque. Now get ready for puppet burlesque. “Puppets and Pasties” is a new monthly variety show at Standard Toykraft featuring puppets, burlesque, and, yes, puppet burlesque. “Sesame Street” will never be the same again.

8 pm at Standard ToyKraft (722 Metropolitan Ave., third floor, between Manhattan and Graham avenues in Williamsburg, $12.


March 29

This is hardcore bingo

Don’t look back in anger — just get down to Passenger Bar for BritPop Bingo, where girls and boys and other common people play bingo with a bittersweet symphony of ’80s and ’90s tunes from bands like Oasis, Blur, the Stone Roses, and the Jesus and Mary Chain. One lucky man — or woman — will win a vintage vinyl record.

7 pm at Passenger Bar [229 Roebling St. between South Second and South Third streets in Williamsburg, (718) 218–7869,]. Free.


March 31

Rye oh rye

Rye Coalition is a great post-hardcore band from New Jersey that never quite made it as big as it should have. Nitehawk Cinema is screening “Rye Coalition: The Story of the Hard Luck Five,” a documentary following the band for 20 years of never quite reaching the heights of related acts like Shellac and Jawbreaker. There will be a post-screening Q&A with the director and bands members, followed by an after party.

7:30 pm Nitehawk Cinema [136 Metropolitan Ave. between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street in Williamsburg, (718) 384–3980,]. $15.


April 1

Savor the Slope

Sick of Park Slope restaurant wait times? Skip dozens of lines in one night at A Taste of Fifth, the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District’s annual food fest. Eateries and drinkeries from all along the strip will be at Grand Prospect Hall serving up their signature creations, alongside complementary wine and beer.

6:30–9:30 pm at Grand Prospect Hall (263 Prospect Ave. between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope, $55–$60.


April 2

Faith no-bore

It ain’t over until the fat lady sings — seven times. If you love opera but suffer from a short attention span, this is the show for you. Experiments in Opera’s “Story Binge” will feature excerpts from seven different operas, performed across April 1 and 2 at Roulette. Each piece is only 20 to 30 minutes, and one of them was written by Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum.

8 pm at Roulette [509 Atlantic Ave. between Third Avenue and Nevins Street in Boerum Hill, (212) 219–8242,]. $20.
