indie rock… Friday: Toro y Moi bliss-pops out Brooklyn Bowl. Friday: Surf City brings melodic lo-gi guitar magic to Mercury Lounge. Just Announced… 6/19: The New Pornographers. 7/24: M.I.A. 9/17: Vampire Weekend

art… We've been fans of Julian Montague since we heard about his book The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification. The photographer/artist has a site-specific installation at Black & White Project Space, 483 Driggs [N.9/10] Bklyn 718.599.8775. It's the only installation you'll see all year examining 'the multiple aspects of animal/architecture engagement' and you may find yourself sorry about that.

parks… The new iPhone app iParks NY ($2.99) is essential warm weather gear since it puts detailed info on the city's 2000+ parks, playgrounds, dog runs, and related events a finger-tap away.

green… Teeny-tiny terraces can get biggie-size yields, with minimal effort, of tomatoes, herbs, and flowers. Check out the Earth Box—$59.95 for the organic kit.

food… There's usually something interesting going on at Jimmy's No. 43 and this weekend's no different. On Sunday, 1-4pm, Danish chef Trine Hahnemann whips up a contemporary smorresbrod, served with elderflower cocktails and Danish craft beers.
