The Weekend: 10.16-10.18

Lots of interesting music happening this weekend, from Bjork cover jazz bands to a borough-curated New Yorker playlist. Only in Brooklyn.

Friday, October 16

Deviant Lillies: The London-based act Tiger Lillies are coming to town, and you couldn’t ask for a better act to bring in the sinister overtones and costumed glory of All Hallow’s Eve. Catch them in two engagements tonight and tomorrow at St. Ann's Warehouse in DUMBO. Both at 8 p.m., with tickets ranging from $32 to $42. Located at 38 Water St.

Brooklyn Playlist: What do indie darlings Dirty Projectors, dark-crunk collective House of Ladosha, DJ Jubilee, and metal band Liturgy all have in common? They'll be playing at the Bell House in Gowanus tonight as part of The New Yorker Festival. The Brooklyn Playlist was curated by the magazine’s staff writers Sasha Frere-Jones and Kelefa Sanneh. At 7 p.m. Tickets $25. Located at 149 7th St.

Bjork Reimagined: Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra pays homage to experimental pop icon Bj√∂rk through the bandleader's reimaginings of her songs, blending jazz improv, fresh arrangements, and dance-hall beats. Catch them at BAM (30 Lafayette Ave.) tonight at 8 p.m., free, as well as at the Big Band Bonanza Monday night at the Bell House.

Bake-off: The seventh annual Apple Pie Bake-Off returns to Enid's (560 Manhattan Ave.) in Greenpoint. Contestants, come with your best creation. Spectators, come hungry. Starting at 5 p.m. Free.
