    WITH A LITTLE HELP: We're a bit puzzled by the David Lynch Foundation's mandate (teaching kids in rough situations to meditate…hmm) but we're solidly behind the lineup at the Paul McCartney & Friends: Change Begins Within Benefit Concert.Ringo Starr, Eddie Vedder, Moby, Sheryl Crow, Bettye Lavette - and of course Macca and the foundations' namesake, auteur Lynch. Radio City, Saturday, 7:30PM.

    MATZOH BAD: An event called Passover in Pasties really kind of speaks for itself. In case it doesn't, this is an evening of kosher burlesque. You're welcome. Slipper Room, Saturday, 7PM.

    HANDY: The 8th Annual Juggle This! juggling festival comes to town all weekend, as pro flingers from all over the globe show you just what they can do with their pins. Schedule varies, Saturday and Sunday.

    RIP, TORN: We tried to get a drink at Union Hall a couple weeks ago and wondered about the line snaking down the block to get in.

Lineup changes weekely, Sunday, 8PM.
