10/19: A Double Bill That Sucks

A horror twofer, the Brooklyn Big Band Bonanza and Broadway salutes MJ


FANGS A LOT: If, in these shock-saturated times, you needed a change of underwear after seeing “Paranormal Activity,” imagine how utterly petrified audiences were in the 1930s following Béla Lugosi in “Dracula” or Boris Karloff in “The Mummy.” See both in a double feature of classic horror at BAM, 6:30 and 9:30PM.

THIS IS IT: We thought we’d seen Michael Jackson hat-tips run through every possible filter until we got word of Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, a night of Broadway and Cabaret tributes to the King of Pop at Birdland, featuring the likes of Christine Ebersole and Norm Lewis, with proceeds to benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. While the chances of a kickline set to “Man in the Mirror” are probably slim, a girl can dream. 7PM.

SIZED UP: No need to dress fancy for the Bell House’s Brooklyn Big Band Bonanza – but it helps. Hear Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, the Industrial Jazz Group, and one of our favorite outfits, Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra, a collective that runs the music of everyone’s favorite Icelandic art-sprite through a not-quite-traditional big-band filter, with amazing results. 7:30PM.
