Up Next

musicBrooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata does stuff no one should do—mashup Do-Re-Mi and the Jackson 5's ABC? But what do you know: totally irresistible. The band will be at Joe's Pub with other Sound of Music mischief called The Hills are Alive on June 1st, 7 and 9:30pm with guest vocalists Victoria Cave, Carolyn Leonhart, Everett Bradley, and saxophonist Michael Blake. Insane, but great. $25

Street Meat Palooza, Midtown Lunch's food cart hat tip.

Go Zombies! George Romero's Survival of the Dead at Village East starting tomorrow. 

The fifth edition of the ever-essential AIA Guide to NYC is out on 6/7.

indie rock… Friday: Epic popsters Braids play outside at Open Road Rooftop. Saturday: Triumphant bro-rockers Fang Island party up Cake Shop. Just Announced… 6/6: Camera Obscura (free show) 7/29: Chromeo / Holy Ghost! 8/13: Deer Tick

food… Chef Ed Brown hosts 25-seat Back Room Dinners in the private dining room of Ed's Chowder House, 44 W. 63rd [Bway] 212.956.1288, starting June 8th and every Tuesday until Labor Day. $55 prix fixe (with an optional $40 wine pairing).

Buckman, who did time as a cocktail waitress in London clubs, constructs scenes of the ladies' restroom, real in some sense, but definitely imagined.
