Sept. 29

Dead and loving it

October starts on Sunday, but get an early start on the month of horror with a midnight screening of “Army of Darkness,” the quotable, campy capstone to the “Evil Dead” trilogy, featuring zombies, evil twins, a time-travelling department store employee with a boomstick, and an evil book of spells. Hail to the king, baby!

11:55 pm at Videology [308 Bedford Ave. at S. First Street in Williamsburg, (718) 782–3468], www.videologybarandcinema.com. $12.


Sept. 30

Doctor’s orders

Nerd and “Dr. Who”–themed bar owner Andy Heidel launches his new drink guide “The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy,” a collection of science-fiction and fantasy–themed adult beverages with a party this afternoon. Heidel will read from his geek-tastic guide, and then give a practical demonstration, mixing up free Brockmans gin cocktails for the crowd.

5 pm at the Way Station [683 Washington Ave. between Prospect and St. Marks places in Prospect Heights, (347) 627–4949, www.thewaystationbk.com]. Free (books $23).

Water colors

Sail over to Red Hook this afternoon, where you can spend a full day exploring the massive Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s warehouse two-story display of five shows, including “Photography Pop-up,” “Grand Installations,” “Interactive,” sculpture show “Materials Matter,” and the “Really Affordable Art Show,” featuring work that costs less than $499.

Lunar tunes

Keep your eyes (and ears) on the skies! Unlike last month’s solar eclipse, you won’t need any special glasses for the interactive audiovisual performance “Re: Lunar Eclipse” — featuring a Brooklyn band of performers and visual artists from Thailand performing inside a lighted, inflatable dome that ends in darkness.

8 pm at Roulette [509 Atlantic Ave. at Third Avenue in Boerum Hill, www.roulette.org]. $25 ($20 in advance).


Oct. 5

She’s the King

Greenpoint guitar goddess Kaki King launches her new album “Kaki King Live At Berklee,” with a performance backed by the full orchestra of Berklee School of Music students who backed her on the album.

8:30 pm at Littlefield (635 Sackett St. between Third and Fourth avenues in Gowanus, www.littlefieldnyc.com). $15.

Doctor’s orders: Andy Heidel will host the book launch party for his “Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy” at his Doctor Who–themed bar in Prospect Heights on Sept. 30.
