Jan. 17

Those about to rock

Dude, is my face okay? I think you melted it off. The young shredders of the Brooklyn School of Rock will give a double-header performance at the Rock Shop. These minor musicians will bring some anarchy to Park Slope with a punk rock show at 2 pm, before the room starts to smell like teen spirit for a set of ’90s tunes at 4 pm.

2 pm at Rock Shop [249 Fourth Ave. between Carroll and President streets in Park Slope, (718) 230–5740,]. $10.


Jan. 18

Ballroom blitz

Dust off your dance card! The Golden Angel Waltz Orchestra is throwing another Waltz Ball at the Jalopy Theatre. The fancy affair will include dancing instruction, live waltz music, and real dance cards.

8:30 pm at the Jalopy Theatre [315 Columbia St. between Hamilton Avenue and Woodhull Street in Red Hook, (718) 395-3214,]. $10.


Jan. 19

Making waves

Malia Obama’s favorite rapper and Bedford-Stuyvesant native Joey Bada$$ drops his new album “B4.Da.$$” with a show at Rough Trade. Buying a copy of the album earlier in the day scores you a ticket to the show (while supplies last), and the first 50 people will also get their copy signed after the show.

7 pm at Rough Trade [64 N. Ninth St. between Kent and Wythe avenues in Williamsburg, (718) 388–4111,]. Free with album.


Jan. 21

Trivial pursuits

It is an Q&A about the Q and the A! Transit and trivia buffs can put their heads together to win prizes when the New York Transit Museum holds another Transit Trivia night. Previous years have challenged contestants to identify photos of subway stations and decipher transit-themed puzzles in addition to general knowledge questions on the subway lines, buses, and ferries we love to hate.

6:30 pm at New York Transit Museum [Boerum Pl. at Schermerhorn Street in Downtown, (718) 694–1600,]. $15.


Jan. 22

Love stories

The Kane Street Synagogue’s annual Brooklyn Israel Film Festival kicks off tonight with a screening of the 2013 documentary “Do You Believe in Love?” about a paralyzed matchmaker who does not believe in love. There will be a post-film question and answer session with director Dan Wasserman.

8 pm at Kane Street Synagogue [236 Kane St. between Tompkins Place and Court Street in Cobble Hill, (718) 875–1550,]. $18.

Updated 10:17 pm, July 9, 2018: The article originally listed "Head On: Motown Vs. Studio 54" at Baby's All Right under Jan. 16. The event is actually on Jan. 30.
