The Weekend: 1.8-1.10

No pants subway rides to wedding fairs? It's an interesting weekend in Brooklyn. Here's what's going on in a neighborhood near you.


Art: "Who Shot Rock" is fastly approaching its expiration date (the photography exhibition closes January 31). Don't miss out on seeing iconic and never-before-seen shots of your favorite rock stars, and get inspired the next time you play Rock Band. At the Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway).

Markets: Head to the Brooklyn Flea this weekend, which finds a new home for the next 12 weekends at One Hanson Place, the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank, in Fort Greene. And on Sunday, devotees of the Park Slope Farmers' Market should head to the Old American Can Factory, where the market finds a new home until the spring with the Makers Market.

Saturday, January 9

Skate: Boogy on skates to the Beatles today, as Prospect Park's Wollman Rink plays the Fab Four from 10 am-1 pm. It's $5 to skate, $6.50 for rentals. Located near the Parkside Avenue/Ocean Avenue entrance of the Park.

Event: Tying the knot? You better head over to the Bell House, which is hosting a wedding fair today, put together by the people over at Brooklyn Based. Meet with vendors hand-picked by the site, as well as sit in on seminars such as DIY Ceremonies. In two 3-hour sessions, at 10:30 am and 2 pm, with tickets $20 in advance, $25 at the door for each, or $40 for a day-long pass. Located at 149 7th St.

Music: Later that night at the Bell House, have a musical awakening with the Asylum Street Spankers, a Houston-based folk act that plays the Gowanus venue for some sin and salvation. At 7 pm. Tickets $20.

Action: Williamsburg-based dance company Streb performs today as part of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. But you don't have to be a producer to attend; the event is open to the public, and is free. At 5 pm. Located at 51 N. 1 St.

Film: Park Slope director Jason Cusato premieres his latest film, "The Apostles of Park Slope," fittingly in the neighborhood tonight, at the Brooklyn Lyceum (showing through January 16). At 7 pm. Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Located at 227 Fourth Ave.

Sunday, January 10

Event: Today, hundreds are expected to strip themselves of their pants in the unlikeliest of places: the subway. Organized by the performance art troupe Improv Everywhere, participants are meeting in Brooklyn at Prospect Park and Bushwick Park in Williamsburg at 3 pm, with the pants coming off before 5:30 pm. Riders, you've been warned. Interested? Register here.
