Feb. 24

In the Pinc

Delightfully off-kilter, often literally underground trio Pinc Louds will launch a self-titled jazzy doo-wop indie-rock album tonight, which the band describes as “the result of a year-long collaboration between singer Claudi Ausbury, two Nyquils and a bottle of Merlot.” Stop by for fariy tale tunes and a bear on upright bass.

9 pm at Bizarre Bar (12 Jefferson St. between Broadway and Bushwick Avenue in Bushwick, $5–$8.


Feb. 25

Near and beer

Dive into New York City Beer Week at its Opening Invitational Bash, featuring unlimited two-ounce samples of ales, lagers, stouts, saisons, and varieties from further afield. Sip your way through suds from established Brooklyn brands, including Sixpoint and the Brooklyn Brewery, and chat with the brewers behind relative newcomers such as Strong Rope, Lineup, Folksbier, and Wartega, among many others.

6:30–9:30 pm at the Brooklyn Expo Center (72 Noble St. at Franklin Street in Greenpoint, $55 ($70 VIP).


Feb. 26

Feeling Blue

Steve Burns, the former host of “Blue’s Clues” and Steven Drozd, from the Flaming Lips, have teamed up to form the band StevenSteven, and today they launch the melancholy rock opera for kids “Foreverywh­ere,” which contains a three-song cycle about a unicorn who falls in love with a guitar-playing princess. Everything about this is awesome.
