March 10

Animal attraction!

Los Campesinos!, the seven-piece British band with a Spanish name, brings its dreamy pop songs to Greenpoint tonight, supporting its latest album “Sick Scenes.” We can only hope that they will be wearing the awesome mascot outfits featured in this press photo.

8 pm at Warsaw [261 Driggs Ave. at Eckford Street in Greenpoint, (718) 387–0505], $22.50.


March 11

Greenpoint go bragh!

Bone up on the neighborhood’s long association with the Emerald Isle at “A History of the Irish in Greenpoint,” a lecture from local historian Geoffrey Cobb. Use your new knowledge to impress people at the pub this weekend with tales of ward boss Peter McGuinness, who gave his name to the nabe’s major boulevard.

3 pm at Gallery AWA [61 Greenpoint Ave between West and Franklin streets in Greenpoint, (917) 460–6920],


March 12

Puff, puff, Purim?

Sorry, Deadheads — there will be no smoking at today’s Grateful Purim party at Brooklyn Bowl, but it will feature a storytelling session with Park Slope rabbi Dan Ain (pictured) set to the music of the Grateful Dead. The long, strange reading will be followed by a family costume contest and a performance by the Terrapin Family Band.

11 am at Brooklyn Bowl [61 Wythe Ave. between N. 11th and N. 12th streets in Williamsburg, (718) 963–3369], $15.

XX files

While we are very excited to read Gillian Anderson’s new book

“We: A Manifesto to Women Everywhere,”

billed as “

a revolutionary guide to radical self-transformation,” if there is a question-and-answer session after her reading tonight we are definitely going to ask what happened to Scully’s alien baby. We need closure!

7 pm at PowerHouse Arena [28 Adams St. at Water Street in Dumbo, (718) 666–3049], Free.


March 15

No, no, Noh!

Catch the New York premiere of the opera “Curlew River” tonight, based on a medieval Japanese Noh play. The all-male production, directed by Mark Morris, is part of a double-bill of operas, paired with “Dido and Aeneas,” a modern take on Carthaginian drama.

7:30 pm at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House (30 Lafayette Ave. between Ashland Place and St. Felix Street in Fort Greene, $25.
