Nov. 24

Evolf or die

The seven members of Brooklyn’s garage-soul band Evolfo will fill the stage of the intimate Zone One stage at Elsewhere tonight, where they will bust out high-energy songs from the album “The Last of the Acid Cowboys.” With opening acts Ex-Girlfriends and Bulldada.

8 pm at Elsewhere (599 Johnson Ave. at Varick Avenue in Bushwick), $12 ($10 in advance).


Nov. 25

Ho ho holiday!

Thanksgiving is over, which means that it is time to plunge whole-heartedly into the Christmas season! At tonight’s tree-lighting ceremony on Fifth Avenue, you can sip on hot cider, listen to carols from Opera On Tap, and catch a glimpse of Santa himself, cruising down the street in a pink Cadillac while his reindeer rest up.

5:45–6:30 pm at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Fourth Street in Park Slope. Free.


Nov. 28

Bard of the Bardo

Greenpoint singer-songwriter Deborah Smith has turned her sorrow at the death of her father into a gorgeous, haunting collection of blues-infused tunes for her latest album “Hearing in the Bardo.” The Colin Brown’s Organ Trio, featuring Smith’s piano player, will follow in Freddy’s front room.

8 pm at Freddy’s Bar [627 Fifth Ave. between 17th and 18th streets in Greenwood Heights, (718) 768–0131], $5.


Nov. 29

Florida man

All your friends have been telling you see the indie drama “The Florida Project” — so you can one-up them by catching tonight’s 7:15 pm screening at Nitehawk, featuring a discussion with director Sean Baker afterwards. He will also introduce his previous flick “Tangerine” at 9:30 pm, which benefits the Ali Forney center for queer youth.

7:15 pm and 9:30 pm at Nitehawk Cinema [136 Metropolitan Ave. between Wythe Avenue and Berry Street in Williamsburg, (718) 384–3980,]. $16 each.


Nov. 30

Getting Randy

Fiercely libertarian author Ayn Rand’s novel “The Fountainhe­ad,” about a brilliant architect who refuses to compromise his vision, comes to the stage for the first time at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, adapted by the Dutch company Toneelgroep Amsterdam. In Dutch with English supertitles.

7 pm at BAM Howard Gilman [30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene, (718) 636–4100,]. $52–$125.
