ULTRA ‘VIOLET’: You’ll have to hike it to the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, but fans of Brooklyn-based band The National (with a recording studio in Ditmas Park, even) know the boys’ moody, layered melodies are more than worth traveling to Jersey for. So get a Zipcar and crank High Violet (their 2010 release, to the uninitiated) on the way. Doors 7, show 8PM.
SUDS UP: Hello, NY Craft Beer Week. We’ve missed you—and we’re thirsty. The week (which is actually 10 days long, lucky us) includes formal events and glorified happy hours, shining a light on suds professionals from homebrew experts to brewery bigwigs. Tonight’s Freaktoberfest is the official fest kickoff: 35+ brewers will pour as the Coney Island Sideshow does its thing (swallowing of swords, etc.) at Park Slope’s Rock Shop. 7PM. For this and more fest events, head to nycbeerweek.com.
