Well, here it is, the final night of summer in 2015. You could, as is often a compelling idea on Existential Crisis Tuesday, stay home and mope and mourn and otherwise immerse yourself in sadness. Don’t do that though! Instead show fall that you fear no colder season by heading out on the town with the Brokelyn Events Calendar as your guide and enjoy one of these fun things to do.
CREEP: THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Running any kind of show in New York for an entire year is an accomplishment, but that’s especially true of comedy shows, what with all the options people have to choose from. So join Mike Abrusci, Tynan DeLong and Marcia Belsky, along with a lineup of comics like Josh Gondelman and Last Comic Standing‘s Shakir Standley, as they celebrate a whole year of making people laugh in the back room of a bar.
8pm, Over the Eight, 594 Union Avenue, Williamsburg, FREE
SYCAMORE DOES…THE BEATLES
You hear a lot of Beatles covers out there in the world, some good, some not so good. The people at Sycamore have good taste, so I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the Beatles “acoustic rendering and interpretations” you hear will be fun to listen to, as opposed to being like listening to that one jerk at the campfire with the acoustic guitar who thinks he’s so great because he knows “Here Comes The Sun.”
8pm, Sycamore, 1118 Cortelyou Road, Ditmas Park, FREE
WET NURSE/BIG EYES/THIN LIPS/FLEA BITE
While you definitely shouldn’t stay inside and dread the changing seasons, it is Existential Crisis Tuesday. So fight the dread with the power of feelings-clad rock music, as Wet Nurse comes all the way up from Florida to get you healthy, with support from NYC’s own Big Eyes and Flea Bite, as well as Philly’s Thin Lips.
8pm, The Silent Barn, 603 Bushwick Avenue, Bushwick, $7
KATIE HOLTEN WITH DANIEL SMITH: ABOUT TREES
How into trees are you? No, actual trees, like conifer and pine and redwood. If the answer is “I freaking love trees,” then tonight is the book release party for you, because Katie Holten has written a book about trees in which she’s created an entirely new font and alphabet made out of trees. So see her chat about her book and new font and find out whether she’s secretly a tree herself.
7pm, BookCourt, 163 Court Street, Cobble Hill, FREE
SECRET SCIENCE CLUB PRESENTS: PRIMATOLOGIST PATRICIA CHAPPLE WRIGHT
If there’s one thing the internet loves it’s cute animals, even if the collective internet brain doesn’t know much about the animals. Lemurs, for instance, with their big eyes and almost human behavior can grind an internet-based office to a halt as everyone passes around cute photos of the primates. Learn more about these night primates tonight when primatologist and wildlife conservationist Patricia Chapple Wright drops in to the Bell House to give a lecture sponsored by Brooklyn’s premier drunken science organization, the Secret Science Club.
7:30pm, The Bell House, 149 7th Street, Gowanus, FREE
