Tonight, 7:30pm, at B&N near Lincoln Center, Randy L. Schmidt gets the best possible support for his new Karen Carpenter bio Little Girl Blue: A mini-concert of Carpenters songs by Manhattan Transfer's Janis Siegel.

Up to 75% off at Williams-Sonoma's sale.

Things will be smoking on August 8th, 5-8pm, at Summer Smokefest, held at Good Co., 10 Hope [Roebling/Havemeyer] Bklyn. $35.

Summer Streets—in which Park Avenue becomes a park on an avenue—returns this year on August 7th, 14th, and 21st.

indie rock… Saturday: Punk icons Sonic Youth play for FREE at Prospect Park! Sunday: Julian Lynch plays his perfect lo-fi chill pop at The Delancey. Free! Just Announced… 10/26: Battles. 11/3 & 11/4: The Dears. 11/20: The Frames.

art… For art lovers, this is usually doldrums time. Tonight, though, you can get your fix from over two dozen galleries participating in Chelsea Art Work from 5-8pm. A downloadable list of the galleries is here.

movies… No doubt about it, we have a soft spot for documentaries. So the annual DocuWeeks festival at IFC, tomorrow through 8/19, is happy moviegoing time for us and maybe you, too.

out of town… Over on MUG's travel website Wish You Were Here: Chile, Philly, a Brigadoon of sorts, and a special olive grove.

comedy… Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead performs at Comix NY from 8/5-8/7. And watch a pilot she wrote called Wake Up World: "America's Only 6-Hour Morning Show!"… More great comedy: Tracy Morgan tapes two shows at the Apollo for an HBO special on 9/24 and 9/25.
