November 1

Ladies’ night

For those still mourning the loss of Lilith Fair, Tinderbox Music Festival packs 17 female artists and female-fronted bands into the Music Hall of Williamsburg for one huge show across two stages. San Francisco weirdo art rockers Deerhoof headline, plus plenty of local talent, including the folky stylings of Lady Lamb and the Beekeeper, and post-punkers Butter the Children.

5 pm at the Music Hall of Williamsburg [66 North Sixth St. between Kent and Wythe avenues in Williamsburg, (718) 486–5400,] $20.


November 2

Pie style

Have your pie and eat it too, when the owners of Gowanus pie shop Four and Twenty Blackbirds sign copies of their new cookbook, “The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book,” and slice up free pie samples at Smorgasburg Williamsburg. Find them at the Greenlight Bookstore booth, then feed your pie-hole.

12:30 pm at Smorgasburg Williamsburg at East River State Park (90 Kent Ave. at North Seventh Street in Williamsburg,


November 5

Pun times

Connoisseurs of dad jokes — and the actual dads who make them — finally get their time to shine at Punderdome 3000, a monthly contest at Littlefield where punny people are rewarded for their groan-inducing wordplay. Only 18 individuals or duos can compete, so pun, don’t walk, to make sure you’re first in line.

7:30 pm at Littlefield [622 Degraw St. between Fourth and Third Avenues, in Gowanus, (718) 855–3388,] $6-$7.


November 6

Hashtag hilarity

Rob Delaney lays claim to being “the funniest man on Twitter.” Is he equally hilarious in print and in real life? Answer both questions at the Powerhouse Arena, when the LA-based comedian launches his new book, “Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban.”

7 pm at Powerhouse Arena [37 Main St. at Water Street in DUMBO, (718) 666–3049,]. Free.


November 7

Eye on Springfield

What is Mr. Burns’ blood type? What was the name of Lisa Simpson’s pony? If you remember the answers to these questions, you just might have a chance at Woo Hoo! — Berry Park’s monthly classic Simpsons trivia night. Questions are only about episodes from the ’90s, so dust off those old “Teachers Editions” and study up.

7:30 pm at Berry Park [4 Berry St. between N. 14th and N. 13th Streets in Williamsburg, (718) 782-2829,] $10 per team, $5 solo players.
