Toast Diamond Dave at Rothtoberfest, Attend a Felabration For Fela Kuti

Rothtoberfest
Saturday, Oct. 17, 4pm at The Diamond, 43 Franklin St., Greenpoint; free.

The soup savants at Good Stock will be serving up Brat.s for Teacher and Runnin’ with the Deviled Eggs, to go along with that Roggen with the Devil beer from Greenpoint Brewing Co. (Hopefully there won’t be an “eruption” in your stomach, har har.) And rest assured you’ll be able to dance the night away: DJs Easetheseatback and Frau Mary will be spinning Van Halen tunes along with German metal and (sorry, no way around this) Oktoberfest tunes.
