1/11: Alan Cumming, David Byrne

One-man show by Tony-winner Alan Cumming comes to Joe's Pub.

SOLO: Here’s what to expect from “Alan Cumming: Uncut”, the cheeky actor/singer/stage performer’s show at Joe’s Pub: Glorious chestnuts from the likes of Cyndi Lauper and Frank Sinatra. Obscure gems from even more obscure musicals. Tunes from his recent CD release “I Bought A Blue Car Today”. And, if history serves, general spritely mayhem – we’d watch this guy sort through his recycling. 11:30PM.

PEARLS BEFORE WINE: Depending on who you believe, January may or may not be the best month of the year to eat Atlantic Ocean shellfish. Either way, oysters will be at the heart of the menu at the Grand Central Oyster Bar Winemaker Dinner tonight, chef Sandy Ingber’s six-course small-plate extravaganza paired with AAA wines from California and NZ. Also on hand: winemakers Mick Schroeter (Geyser Peak Winery) and Matt Mitchell (The Crossings), plus “Geography of Oysters” author Rowan Jacobsen. 6:30PM.

BYRNE, UNINTERRUPTED: Back in the fall, musician-multimedia artist-pied piper of hip David Byrne ignited a small but fierce crowd at Pete’s Candy Store’s bi-monthly lecture series Open City Dialogue with a lecture of sorts he calls “Creation in Reverse”, about how context determines the creative process. Now he brings this big idea to a bigger stage as “Creation in Reverse” comes to The Bell House. Get there early: Admission is free and s.r.o. 8PM.
