Acrobatics, Violin, Magic and the Other Nights of the Week

It’s Next Wave season at BAM, and we’ve got a fist full of tickets for shows at the Harvey and Howard over the next few weeks. The thing we’re excited most about is tonight’s Raoul, a show conceived and fronted by violinist/acrobat/magician/clown James Thiérrée. We’ve seen the past two shows he’s done, mesmerizingly costumed and designed spectacles that take advantage of all Thiérrée’s various slashes, and they’re genius. (In case you’re worried that DJs don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to theater, here’s a clip to prove the brilliance.)

The rest of the nights of the week aren’t so shabby either. Favourite Sons, one of our favorite bands, return from a long time off at Union Pool, hopefully airing out songs from their recently recorded album. Out jazz grabs our attention on Thursday and Friday with Henry Threadgill’s Zooid and the Sun Ra Arkestra; and we’ll spend our Mister-less Saturday night getting down at Sound Noir with Dial artist John Roberts. Sunday we’re checking Nick Cave’s ballsy Grinderman show, and Monday we’re seeing Sigur Ros’s Jonsi in a church on the Upper West Side. How civilized.
