Ease your way through the week with Ayumi Ishito at Coco 66 and Druthers at Bruar Falls. Conclude the almost end of your work week with some feral DJ action at Zebulon. You know the deal, nothing more than $5. (more…)

As of this writing, it’s a balmy six degrees outside, and the rest of the week’s temperatures don’t look too welcoming either. Use this week’s roundup of free and cheap music in Brooklyn to help keep your ears warm.

Hungry? Make some totally non-sexually-suggestive metaphorical sandwiches with Body Language tonight at Brooklyn Bowl. Or go folk yourself with some classical guitar melodies and ambient keyboards at the Issue Project Room on the Gowanus waterfront.
