What You're Doing Tonight, 5/14

50+ musicians (including Lou Reed and Dave Brubeck) = a Great Night in Harlem, a look at seduction, old-Hollywood style, and the best of the Arab-American Comedy Festival



    What You're Doing Tonight, 5/14
    The Eighth Annual Great Night in Harlem brings together more than 50 jazz musicians (and others) at the Apollo.

    FULL HOUSE: The marquee for the Eighth Annual Great Night in Harlem Benefit Concert is a crowded one (to the tune of about 50 music notables), so we'll pluck two names out of the lineup for you: Lou Reed and Dave Brubeck. The event, which celebrates the Jazz Foundation of America's 20th anniversary, has also enlisted some big-name presenters (again, two names: Chevy Chase, Danny Glover). Should make for a thorough evening. Apollo Theater, 8PM.

    FUNNY HA HA? A host of Arab-American comedians (Dean Obeidallah, Ahmed Ahmed) host an evening to cap off the 6th Annual New York Arab-American Comedy Festival. At this Best of the Fest event, expect a full program of sketches, short films, and fantastically awkward "our people have an uneasy relationship with your people" zingers. Comix, 7:30PM.

    TEMPTED: Part of the 92nd Street Y's Sex, Cinema and Censorship series, tonight's program focuses on the delicate dance of seduction with looks at the temptresses and femme fatales of Baby Face, Double Indemnity, From Here to Eternity and To Have and Have Not. 7PM.
