And we’re back to grey.  No bother, though, cuz that steamy, sticky heaviness in the air has everyone feeling a wee bit frisky.  Nothing to do but indulge, right?  Lucky for us there are treats to be had all over the place: Sweet Toof arrives this week, as does the all-night happy birthday bash for Tandem, and have I mentioned 3 hours of me serving you beer?  Come on, you can’t miss that.

Today

Good news: Arts in Bushwick has extended BOS’11 registration until Sunday, May 1st.  If you haven’t been to a mixer yet (and even if you have) head to Bodega Wine Bar tonight at 7pm and get involved.  It’s fun!

The Aerial & Variety Show is back at House of Yes.  Plenty of “aerial majesty and raucous circus acts” to see, plus this month you get to try delicious smoothies & drinks by LoveGirl.   

Plus over at Shea Stadium it’s time to rock out in support of reproductive rights.  With a one-woman dance party on the bill, I’m thinking this is gonna be a good time.

Friday

Low Lives 3, which features more than 50 live performances transmitted over the web and projected all over the world in real time, is upon us.  Co-produced by Chez Bushwick, you can watch (and discuss) tonight’s screenings at the Center for Performance Research (tomorrow night you have to stream it).

At Centotto go catch the opening for Landscapes Metamorphic, Topologies Chromatoplastic, featuring works by Cynthia Hartling, Francesco Longenecker, Layton Hower and MaryKate Maher.  This looks like a really beautiful show.

Small Black Door, another new-ish project space, brings us their second exhibition tonight, titled small.black.show.  It’s a group show featuring 15 artists, which makes me wonder how literal that ‘small’ is meant to be.

It’s all about hot-pink gums and crazy gold teeth at Factory Fresh
Holy cow: Sweet Toof is here!

Also the Stain of Poetry rolls into Goodbye Blue Monday at 7pm, with a full live music show to follow.

Saturday

Those Famous Accountants are at it again, this time with a straight-up painting show, featuring the super talented Matthew Miller and five of his iconoclastic self-portraits. the magic black of an open barn door on a really sunny summer day, when you just cannot see into it opens at 7pm tonight, and ends with a very special after party at Café Ghia!  Drink specials, DJ Scot Bowman, good times, fun people – all guaranteed.

Brooklyn Fire Proof hosts a Japanther Japan Benefit, with all proceeds going to the Japan Red Cross.  With a full list of bands on the bill, plus tons of cool raffle prizes, it’s the best $10 you’ll spend all week.

The Garden of Eve premiers tonight at 950 Hart Gallery.  There will be new paintings by collective members Michael Kronenberg, Mikki Nylund, and Antoinette Johnson, an installation by Bill Bond (that you can touch, I think), and a musical performance by Veronica Isley.  Oh, and some apples.

Tandem turns 2 years old!  Be sure to swing by and help them celebrate (midnight to 1am seems like a good time: it’s free PBR hour).

And for the house music lovers we have Paradise in a Loft, though where this loft is I can’t say; you gotta RSVP to find out.

Sunday

It’s Spring Clean Up Day at The Onderdonk House (tomorrow too).  Help out!  It’s good for you.

The never quiet Silent Barn has a deal of a show tonight: 4 bands, 2 dj’s, $4 cover.

Starting now, head to Pine Box Rock Shop on Sunday nights and you can watch AMC’s The Killing, drink 2-for-1 priced wine, and eat $5 olive plates.  Sweetness.

Monday

The Process Records, a Brooklyn-based Indie record label, is celebrating the online release of their first artist compilation with an all ages show at Xpo 929.

There’s also Movie Nite at Beauty Bar BK, Hip Hop Nite at The Wreck Room, and/or the hilarious Comedyclipse at Tandem.

Wednesday

The Bodega presents WHOAH: whole album humpdays.  Tonight’s installment features two albums from Mister David Bowie, and begins at 6pm.  I’d be punctual for this – all drafts are 2-for-1 for as long as the albums play!
