A taste of t-bones

Bonerama is a touring New Orleans brass band with a silly name, derived from the three trombones included in the six-piece lineup. The fiery, funky band will headline a night of Big Easy brass while the kitchen pumps out Creole cuisine.

8 pm at the Hall at MP [470 Driggs Ave. between N. 10th and N. 11th streets in Williamsburg, (718) 387–4001], www.thehallbrooklyn.com. $20–$40.

Another whirl

Last week’s attempt to kick off the Coney Island season was postponed by fear of a snowstorm, but they are circling around today with a “Blessing of the Rides” at the Wonder Wheel, and free rides on the Wheel and on the Cyclone for the first 96 and 100 visitors, respectively.

11 am at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park [1025 Boardwalk at West 12th Street in Coney Island, (718) 372–2592], www.wonderwheel.com. Free.

White-out

Actor and comedian Dylan Marron, the voice of Carlos in “Welcome to Night Vale” and creator of the “Every Single Word” series — which edits Hollywood movies to only lines spoken by actors of color — will record a new project tonight. “White Men in Peril” will feature clips of white dudes having bad days, re-dubbed by black and brown comedians.

8 pm at Union Hall [702 Union St. between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Park Slope, (718) 638–4400, (718) 222–4111, unionhallny.com]. $10 ($8 in advance).

Fakespeare

The Letter of Marque production of “Double Falsehood” — possibly written by Shakespeare and John Fletcher, possibly an 18th-century fake — is a kind of tragedy of manners, alternating between broad comedy and awful actions. Regardless of its author, the show has inventive staging and affecting performances that are worth checking out.

7:30 pm. Irondale Center [85 S. Oxford St. at Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene, (718) 488–9233], www.irondale.org]. $20 (but free if you register in advance!).

Heroic determination

Pay no attention to Zack Snyder’s new slug-fest — the real superhero contest is at this month’s installment of “Kevin Geeks Out,” where comedian Kevin Maher and special guests determine which superhero is the best — Batman or Superman? They will support their arguments with film and television clips stretching back to 1941.

9:30 pm at Nitehawk Cinema [136 Metropolitan Ave. between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street in Williamsburg, (718) 384–3980], www.nitehawkcinema.com]. $15.
