Five things to do in Brooklyn, Nov. 10–16
Pack of three: The Toronto band Little Coyote will play Bushwick Public House on Nov. 10.
Showing their teeth
Check out some wild new music tonight at the Bushwick Public House, where Toronto three-piece Little Coyote will perform the moody, melodic tracks from its killer debut album “The Trouble with Teeth.” Also playing are local acts Ivry, Minor Poet and Pearla.
7:30 pm at Bushwick Public House (1288 Myrtle Ave. at Central Avenue in Bushwick, www.bushwickpublichouse.com). $5.
The annual Comics Arts Brooklyn festival of graphic novels moves to art institute Pratt this year, so the event will feature a chat with Pratt alumni and cartooning giants Jules Feiffer, “Zippy the Pinhead” creator Bill Griffiths, and “Spy vs. Spy” artist Peter Kuper (pictured), along with an exhibit hall featuring more than 100 local cartoonist.
11 am–7 pm at Pratt Institute (200 Willoughby Ave. between Hall Street and Classon Avenue in Clinton Hill, www.comicartsbrooklyn.com). Free.
Dank in the dark
The Cannabis Film Festival happening today aims higher than Cheech and Chong movies, with a line-up of weed-themed documentaries, romances, and horror films — including the Bushwick-set psychedelic slasher flick “Psychotic!” (pictured). Predictably, the 4:20 pm screening of short films has already sold out.
1:30 and 7:20 pm at the Wythe Hotel [80 Wythe Ave. at N. 11th Street in Williamsburg, www.nyccff.com]. $20.
Big in Japan
Watch the big guys grapple while you load up on food at “Sumo Stew.” A sumo match from Japan will be streaming on a six-foot screen, while the audience devours a traditional sumo wrestler stew, bento boxes, and other Japanese dishes, along with sample sips of sake, shochu, and Brooklyn Brewery beers.
8 pm at Brooklyn Brewery [79 N. 11th St. between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street in Williamsburg, (718) 486–7422], www.brooklynbrewery.com. $55.
Get your glitter on at the cosmic disco event “Light and Space,” an immersive theater piece and party from synthpop act Ariana and the Rose, featuring bizarre characters — including drag queen Horrochata — and scripted scenes designed to create the feeling of Studio 54 in space, and ending with a concert and galactic rave.
9 pm at House of Yes [2 Wyckoff Ave. at Jefferson Street in Bushwick, (646) 838–4937, www.houseofyes.org]. $15–$20.
