We’re headed toward a full moon night on Wednesday, which means an abundance of events, parties, good times, sunshine, makeout sessions, and queer mothers. Maybe you’ll feel like you can’t stand being trapped inside of your own skin. Don’t worry, that’s totally normal. The full moon makes us all a little crazy. Just embrace it, and attend these seven fantastic local events!

(The prediction for the week by your fave amateur astrologer/solitary witch, aka yours truly, hereby ends.)

If you want more local events, head straight to our community events calendar!

Monday: Trivia Night @ The Sampler

8-10 p.m., The Sampler, 234 Starr St., Bushwick

Does your brain simply work better while refreshed by delish craft beer? Then you really should attend Trivia Night at The Sampler, organized by Bushwick Daily’s Magdalena Waz and her boyfriend Micah. Tonight’s rounds include TV spinoffs, female monarchs, and song mashups.

Wednesday: Crown Larks / Parlor Walls / Video Daughters / Outside World @ The Glove

9 p.m. – midnight, message for address

Slightly mysterious DIY venue, The Glove, brings you a night of experimental live rock this Wednesday. Walk that extra mile to find out what’s what. Or simply ask a punk.
