Brooklyn Vegan notes that regularly scheduled program will continue at Union Hall, BAM and Brooklyn Bowl tonight.
That means Mike Birbiglia will have his one-man show at Union Hall, "The Nutcracker" will go on at BAM, and Brooklyn Bowl will host the Tom Hamilton and the American Babies All Star Alumni Special Holiday Show, featuring Joe Russo (Furthur), Eric Slick (Dr. Dog), Dave Dreiwitz (Ween), Jim Hamilton and Scott Metzger.
