A big pop reunion and first-time rockers

Feel this

The Feelies are back! The band, which came out of Jersey in the late 1970s and disbanded in 1992 after releasing four underappreciated albums, has reunited for a show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Sept. 20. Let’s hope they play every cut from their seminal 1986 album, “The Good Earth” (and let’s hope Peter Buck from REM, who produced it, will just happen to be in the neighborhood).

Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 N. Sixth St., between Wythe Street and Kent Avenue), Sept. 20, 9:30 pm. Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 day of show. Call (718) 486-5400 or visit the www.musichallofwilliamsburg.com for information.

‘Pin’ heads

The sizzling, once-little-known indie rockers (turned commercial hit band) Pinback will play the equally hip Music Hall of Williamsburg this month. The group, led by guitarist Rob Crow, is touring for its fourth album, “Autumn Of The Seraphs.”

Pinback at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 N. Sixth St., between Wythe Street and Kent Avenue), Sept. 27, 9:30 pm. Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 day of show. Call (718) 486-5400 or visit the www.musichallofwilliamsburg.com.

The string of it

A string strumming session at the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church kicks off the Brooklyn Friends of Chamber Music’s 21st season in style. The nationally renowned, award-winning Alianza String Quartet’s performance is the first of six soothing concerts to be played in the borough.

Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church (85 South Oxford St. at Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene), Sept. 28, 3 pm. Tickets are $20. Call (718) 855-3053 for information.

BAM bash

Booze, DJ’s, bands, movies, a Wii game set-up, a lounge and ping pong. All night long. Yes, last year’s wild, BAM-a-ganza, Takeover, is back by popular demand. The Brooklyn Academy of Music’s bash could become the hottest annual all-nighter around.

Takeover at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (30 Lafayette Ave., between Ashland Place and South Felix Street in Fort Greene), Sept. 27, 9 pm–4 am. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 (cash only) at the door. Call (718) 636-4100 or visit www.BAM.org for information.

Battle of the bands

In November, 35 unsigned bands will battle for bragging rights at the Brooklyn Rocks! Festival in Greenpoint. Show up, drink a beer, and consider cheering on these hapless hopefuls an act of random kindness.

Brooklyn Rocks! Festival (Red Star Club, 37 Greenpoint Ave., between Franklin and West streets in Greenpoint), Nov. 6-8, 13-15, 7 pm. Tickets are $10. Call (718) 783-1776 for information.
