March 4

Kill all humans!

Get a weird start to your weekend with the variety show Doomsday Freaks! This show delivers what it promises, with drag hostess Madame Vivien V, mimes, vaudevillians, and a truly heavy metal performance from Super Killer Robots, which performs along with an 8-foot robot.

8 pm at Standard Toykraft (722 Metropolitan Ave. between Manhattan and Graham avenues, third floor). $15 ($10 in advance).

Saturday

March 5

String theories

This performance from Brooklyn violin-and-viola duo Chargaux is officially part of a kids’ programming series at the Brooklyn Academy of Music — but do not let the rugrats scare you off from hearing the duo’s imaginative compositions, or their infectious take on Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”

10:30 am and 2 pm at BAM Cafe (30 Lafayette Ave. between Ashland Place and St. Felix Street in Fort Greene), www.bam.org/programs/bamcafe-live. $10.

Sunday

Don’t be a dick

Prepare for the looming work week with a burst of positivity at Dicking Around with Kyle Ayers. The funnyman will introduce four other comedians, and lead them in some bizarre concept comedy bits, including a “boast rattle,” in which they compete to compliment a handsome, talented audience member.

8 pm at Union Hall [702 Union St. between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope, (718) 638–4400, (718) 222–4111, unionhallny.com]. $8 ($5 in advance).

Tuesday

Femme force

On International Women’s Day, check out some of the city’s most fabulous female performers, including accordion group Main Squeeze Orchestra, percussion troupe Batala NYC, and the eclectic performers of Lady Circus. For a bit extra, you can get dinner beforehand and a dance party after — all proceeds benefit groups dedicated to equal rights for women.

9 pm at House of Yes [2 Wyckoff Ave. at Jefferson Street in Bushwick, (646) 838–4937, www.houseofyes.org]. $20–$125.

Wednesday

March 9

These two ukes

Any song performed on tiny tropical guitars is automatically adorable, as far as we’re concerned. So the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, a New Zealand 10-piece band composed entirely of ukelele players, with its flamboyant outfits and promised sing-alongs, is likely to be off the charts on the cute scale.

8 pm at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus, (718) 643–6510, www.thebellhouseny.com]. $18 ($15 in advance).
