You’d think that after a sweltering second-anniversary party during which Courtney Barnett, Widowspeak, Neon Indian, and Porches all took the stage, Baby’s All Right would take a week off or something. But no. Tonight Williamsburg’s buzziest venue unveils a new food menu that’s a result of a collaboration with its Bangkok sister restaurant.

Tonight’s act at Baby’s All Right is mysteriously listed as “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” but don’t expect PotterCon redux. That image of Alfred E. Neuman as the Boy the Who Lived is clearly a reference to a certain gap-toothed master of irony. And the opening band, “Another Juan,” would seem to be a play on his newly released mini-LP, Another One. You guessed it: Mac DeMarco is prone to having secret shows, and the folks at Baby’s All Right confirm that this is one of them. If you miss tonight’s all-ages affair (tickets, just $5, will be available at the doors, which open at 8:30 p.m.), feel free to say, “What, me worry?” Mac will be playing some not-so-secret shows at Bowery Ballroom on Aug. 17, Webster Hall on Aug. 18, Music Hall of Williamsburg on Aug. 19 and Warsaw on Aug. 20.
Check out our review of the new album here.
Dave Hodge of Broken Social Scene and Leah Seigel of Firehorse make up Leisure Cruise. The two began collaborating after Hurricane Sandy, and credit the disaster with much of the inspiration behind their debut album, Double Digit Love. They’re on the road now promoting their forthcoming album, Sailing, due out this fall. Baby’s All Right, Williamsburg, Tuesday, August 5 at 8 p.m., tickets $8
Catey Shaw’s music is indie-folk-pop with a splash of white-girl rap, and she strums her ukelele with the fevered intensity of a Death Metal shredder. Perez Hilton described her as “Meiko with a ukelele.”
While Reputante is less than a year old, its members are no strangers to the music industry. Levy’s song “Glorious” helped sister duo The Pierces sell well over 150,000 copies of their record You & I, Giannopoulos is in the Brooklyn-based bandRathborne, and Ullman — star of the Disney show Phil of the Future — is the tour drummer for Soko. If that wasn’t enough, shortly after forming Reputante, Levy, Giannopoulos, and Ullman teamed up with Zoë Kravitz to create the electronic-pop band Lolawolf.
This international series of listening parties for classic albums amounts to a night of listening to a Pandora-like selection of music inspired by or related to the album, a word from the moderator, and a playing of the album that’s 100 percent free of interruptions from your GPS system. Tonight, in honor of Gay Pride: Grace Jones’s “Nightclubbing.”
There’s never been a better time for the Williamsburg brunch bunch: Egg expands into bigger digs this week, and over at Baby’s All Right, things just got even more all right. The music venue of the moment, which started dinner service last month, is launching brunch this Sunday, and yes, there’ll be a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar featuring 20 different kinds of hot sauce, pickled veggies, cured meats(!), and house mixes made from your choice of tomato or greens.

A healthy, happy Larry Clark will set off his 71st birthday at Baby’s All Right in Williamsburg tonight with free food and drink. “By midnight we should all be fucked up,” his site promises.
The photographer-filmmaker has reason to celebrate: after a near death experience and major surgery, Clark had a minor epiphany and, earlier this month, sold off thousands of his 4×6 and 5×7 color prints for only $100 a piece — a gift to his fans who wouldn’t usually be able to afford his work.

The bar and live music venue, located in a former plumbing supply warehouse at 146 Broadway, is now “openish,” having hosted a Brooklyn Vegan’s CMJ showcase last weekend, but it might be a couple of weeks before it’s fully open for what Mexico describes as a “nice clean lunch” during the day and “experimental bar food” at night.

The web’s best animators set out to prove that everything is scarier when it’s looped for all eternity at this contest from the folks at GIPHY and Brooklyn’s Animation Block Party. The coolest entries are being screened and measured up by celebrity judges at the Brooklyn Bazaar’s new four-story space — here’s hoping for lots of animated homages to the dancing pumpkin man. Plus, on Saturday BK Bazaar is doing their “Brooklyn Fright Bazaar,” with musical tributes to The Cramps and The Bee Gees, games, karaoke (guess they found a manager), a Halloween drinking game contest (yikes), food and more.
