HEAR

Chelsea Wolfe If you didn’t see the haunting vocalist open for Queens of the Stone Age last year, the gothic songstress returns as headliner following this month’s release of her beautifully ominous album, Abyss. With Upsilon Acrux, DJ Fish. August 27, 8:30 p.m., $10-$12, Backstage Bar & Billiards.

Jill Scott The Philadelphia-born singer/actress/poet first garnered success during 2000’s big neo-soul boom. That she landed her second Billboard No. 1 album last month with her fifth album, Woman, is a testament to her vocal gifts and perseverance. With Tish. August 27, 8 p.m., $46-$100, Brooklyn Bowl.

EAT & DRINK

Southern Italy Wine Dinner Newly renamed Panevino Italian Grille continues its quarterly wine pairing dinner series with a four-course menu focused on flavors from four Southern Italian regions. For example, lamb roast with cipollini onions, green olives and rosemary matches up with Nerone di Calabria’s Crisera, a Sangiovese-Nerello blend. August 27, 7 p.m., $85, 702-222-2400.

Don't miss Jill Scott at Brooklyn Bowl.

Milk Dudz If you thought Baltic porters were sweet and rich, wait until you get a load of the milk chocolate variety. Banger Brewing has introduced the appropriately named Milk Dudz, concocted by its first “guest star” brewer, Allan Harrison. At Neonopolis, 702-456-2739.

DO

The Beautiful Game Turns Ugly However nasty pro soccer gets on the field, its governing body FIFA puts that to shame. In the wake of a 47-count indictment of top officials, this Mob Museum exhibit illustrates the creative shapes taken by today’s organized crime. Opens September 1, $10-$22.

SEE

Zoolander With the recent premiere of the trailer for the long-awaited sequel, now’s a good time to catch up on the original comedy featuring Ben Stiller as really, really, ridiculously good-looking (but incredibly stupid) model Derek Zoolander. August 30, 7:30 p.m., free, Downtown Container Park.
