April 14

Dirty mouths

Get down and dirty with the Dirty Bourbon River Show! The New Orleans band plays big brass circus rock that gets people dancing, and its songs about carousing and getting busy also feature fun, fantastical touches such as werewolves and time travel.

7:30 pm at the Knitting Factory [361 Metropolitan Ave. at Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg, (347) 529–6696,]. $12 ($10 in advance).


April 15

Yer a lizard, Harry!

The creators of the Lizard People of New York Facebook page host a comedy show that reveals the secrets of our reptilian overlords, with sketches about the scaly folks in charge and an update from cold-blooded, lizard-suited news correspondent Liam O’Malley (pictured).

8 pm at Tender Trap [66 Greenpoint Ave. between West and Franklin streets in Greenpoint, (347) 763–1825,]. Free.


April 16

What’s up, Doc?

On this Sunday, we celebrate a man who came to Earth to save all mankind, who died and then rose again — the Doctor. Catch the brand-new season premiere of “Dr. Who” among like-minded nerds at the Way Station, where you can sip a sonic screwdriver cocktail while you watch.

4, 5:30, and 7 pm at the Way Station [683 Washington Ave. between Prospect and St. Marks places in Prospect Heights, (347) 627–4949,]. Free.


April 17

Charles III

The new play “Charleses,” from Brooklyn playwright Carl Holder, starts as an intimate story of three generations of fathers and sons, all named Charles, trying to communicate, and then stretches strangely to include more Charleses, far distant in time. The show continues through the 29th.

8 pm at the Brick [575 Metropolitan Ave. between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street in Williamsburg, (718) 907–6189], $25 ($15 students).


April 20

Magic men

Comedian Kevin Maher and real-life wizard Devin Person get fired up for their joint presentation on pop-culture warlocks, including pipe-weed loving Gandalf (pictured). Be sure to order some munchies, because the high-flying discussion of “Kevin and Devin Geek Out About Wizards” might wander into the weeds.

7 pm at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema [445 Albee Square West between Fulton and Willoughby streets Downtown, (718) 513–2547,] $15.
