May 27

Embrace Nikhilism

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Nikhil P. Yerawadekar, from Afrobeat band Antibalas, will groove with his new band Low Mentality tonight, pumping out diverse, danceable tunes from the new album “Everything Lasts Forever.”

10 pm at Barbes [376 Ninth St. between Sixth and Seventh avenues in Park Slope, (347) 422–0248,]. $10 suggested donation.


May 28

Life’s a beach

Brooklyn’s sandy waterfront’s are open today! The real action is at Coney Island, where crowds will throng Nathan’s Famous for a cheap frankfurter, but continue on to the beach, plant yourself in the sand, and then take a cooling dip in the Atlantic Ocean. That should calm you enough to plunge back into the chaos of the Boardwalk on summer’s opening day.

10 am–6 pm at Coney Island and Brighton Beach [Surf Avenue between W. 37th Street and Corbin Place in Coney Island (718) 946–1350]. Free.


May 30


Celebrity chef Carla Hall’s much-anticipated Southern Kitchen will open its doors today, offering a limited menu that will surely include the Nashville’ native’s speciality, Nashville hot chicken. Hall has not announced an exact time for the opening, but you have the day off work — join the line early and you will make it in eventually!

Carla Hall’s Southern Kitchen (115 Columbia St. at Kane Street in Columbia Street Waterfront District, Free to walk in.


June 1

League on their own

This is the closing night of the extremely silly new play “Orphan Action League,” in which an eccentric millionaire (pictured) assembles an elite group of crime-fighting orphans to take down a child labor-using villain called Grandpa Moneybags. Also, the show has a kick-ass theme song, so catch it while you can.

8:30 pm at Annoyance Theatre and Bar [367 Bedford Ave. at S. Fifth Street in Williamsburg, (718) 569–7810,]. $10.


June 2

Do you feel Lucky?

Sure, there is no shortage of places to get authentic Asian food in Sunset Park. But the hipster fare of the Luckyrice Festival, hosted by Brooklyn chef Dale Talde and featuring twists on classic Asian cuisine from more than 30 restaurants, still sounds like fun. Also, it has an open bar for Asahi beer and cocktails made with Bombay Sapphire gin!

8 pm at Industry City [233 37th St. between Second and Third avenues, (917) 623–9669,]. $88 ($150 VIP).
