indie rock… Saturday: Small Black play pretty and synth-y lo-fi dance-pop at Market Hotel. [Photo: Rez Avissar] Sunday: Wolfmother plays like Sabbath on the sabbath at Terminal 5. Just Announced…12/2: Phoenix/Passion Pit. 1/7: Okkervil River. 1/29: St. Vincent. 2/19: Dirty Projectors.

movies… Not an easy sit, but Lee Daniels' movie Precious, based on the novel PUSH by Sapphire, is equally hard to forget: the story of an overweight, illiterate teenage girl in 1980s Harlem played by the extraordinary Gabourey Sidibe.

photography… More tough-to-see images, though captured with an infinitely compassionate eye: the exhibition Under New York, photographs by Touhami Ennadre, chronicles those who might otherwise be overlooked in their 'daily struggle for survival.' It's at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art, 547 W. 27th [10th/11th] 212.244.4320.

art… Another Slideluck Potshow, number fourteen, takes place on November 13th, another round of art event/food mashup, on the theme of Inside Out at the Aperture Foundation, 547 W. 27th [10th/11th] $10, plus you're encouraged to bring something to the table.

out of town… Do we love Alitalia? Not so much. We do, however, love Rome, so if they want to schlepp us there for $659 roundtrip (including taxes), we'll make do.

spices… Tonight at James Beard, Ana Sortun cooks a great-sounding menu inspired by spices. $165

A World of Spice taught by Michael Krondl, at the Astor Center, this Saturday, noon-4pm, $125.

The Caravan returns! Rochelle Zabarkes, whom you'll remember from the late, lamented UWS Adrianna's Caravan, has returned to NYC from the wilds of Pennsylvania and is giving her full attention to the website, which is filled with spices (and more) from around the world.
