Further Lands Spencer Olsen presents his otherworldly drawings, paintings, collages, prints and sculptural works based on exploration of all kinds. September 4-30; opening reception September 4, 6-10 p.m., Blackbird Studios.

Mickey & Worm The Sci Fi Center goes full noir with this Intervision Entertainment production about broken hearts and broken dreams, featuring a failed boxer, a weary grifter and a young nightclub singer not as innocent as she looks. September 4 & 5, 7 p.m.; September 6, 2 p.m., $29.



Darkswoon Whimsical, dark (natch) and emotive, Portland’s self-proclaimed “electrohaze” duo layers cool vocals, fuzzy reverb and gigantic beats perfect for an intimate setting like the Hard Hat Lounge. With Kella Bo Bella, Monogrim, DJ Athenas. September 6, 8 p.m., $6.

The Psychedelic Furs & The Church Whether you’re more excited to hear “Pretty in Pink” or “Under the Milky Way,” you’ll surely get to hear both (and then some) when the ’80s alt-rock giants take over the Brooklyn Bowl stage. September 8, 8 p.m., $30-$35.


Kevin Hart & Friends Comedy All Stars The ubiquitous comedian returns for another round of Hartbeat Weekend, which encompasses his two guest-laden shows at the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea and, technically, his hosting duties at Drake’s sold-out poolside concert, too. September 5, 7 & 10:30 p.m., $50-$125.


Dinner His Way Made L.V. hosts a variety of chef-friends of Kerry Simon for a truly warm meal of some of Simon’s favorite dishes, including Iron Chef sliders, classic meatloaf and the infamous junk food platter.
