Brooklyn Bowl’s local showcase is back with more free music, workshops, cheap booze and even a bonus charity element. Local X Local returns Sunday, Sept. 19, with headliner Maluca, a rising star described as “tropical punk” on Diplo’s Mad Decent label and, of course, a NY-native. But get there early because the charity event for the Blue Ribbon MS Charity Bike Benefit runs from noon to 5 p.m., featuring helmet fittings, safety instructions and tire-changing workshops. And from 7 to 11 p.m., there’s free chips and salsa from The Brooklyn Salsa Company, $4 Brooklyn lagers and a special menu item made with fresh produce grown down the street at the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm. Donations are accepted but entry is free.
Brooklyn Bowl, 61 Wythe Ave. at N. 11th St., Williamsburg
