The Weekend: 2.5-2.7

Accessible through the Parkside/Ocean Avenues entrance or the Lincoln Road/Ocean Avenue entrance of the Park.

Sounds Like Brooklyn: Music's on the frontburner more than usual this weekend, thanks to BAM's annual festival. Tonight, check out Ra Ra Riot and The Antlers at BAM in Fort Greene for some great indie rock. Tomorrow, diversify things with tUnE-YaRdS'sexperimental folk sounds, at the Bell House in Gowanus.

Speakeasy: Think 1920s cabaret and head to Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO for "Speak Easy," an aerial arts performance channeling all things jazzy and a little bit risque. Tonight at 7:30 and tomorrow at 2 and 7:30 pm. Tickets $20. Located at 16 Main St.
