Here Are 5 Events in Bushwick That You Must Check Out This Week

Evan Haddad


How do you follow up the week after an exciting Super Bowl? By having a Super Bush.

By Super Bush we mean a roundup of the coolest events happening this week in the neighborhood. Unlike many events pages on other sites, ours are actually fun. 

Snap a picture of a Bushwick Daily team member at one of these events — or anywhere about town — and we’ll give you a shoutout during our next live Instagram broadcast on Sunday! Bonus points if you use a doggy ears filter on us.

?Monday: American Graffiti Happy hour

4-8 p.m. at Artichoke Basille’s Pizza & Bar, 18 Wyckoff Ave.

Dance to Bushwick Billy’s golden oldies of the 50s and 60s at this happy hour. Grab your best girl/boy, a $5 drink, and shake your peacock feathers! Just don’t expect you two will start going steady — especially after a couple of well shots.

Whiskey Breath Acoustic Open Mic 

8-11 p.m. at Precious Metal, 143 Troutman St.

It’s good to know that Precious Metal doesn’t just do whiskey-infused open mic comedy nights. Check out this one-time event sponsored by Cutty Sark and you’ll hear whiskey stories, local music, get drink giveaways, and tons of free swag! Bring your guitar and you will not only be free to perform, but you’ll get a free original cocktail created by Precious Metal mixologists and Cutty Sark!

Wednesday: Tax tips for Airbnb 

6-8 p.m. at Brooklyn Coop (Bed-Stuy Branch), 834 Dekalb Ave.

If you’ve been renting out your pad on Airbnb, come to this event at the Brooklyn Coop to learn how to properly file taxes. The Coop team will teach you what expenses are deductible, if and how to pro-rate your expenses, and what is “mixed-use” property. If it seems too confusing, hey, at least they have free pizza.

Friday: Different Trains

7:30-9:30 p.m. at The Muse Brooklyn, 350 Moffat St.

ABCirque pairs up with Brendan Speltz to produce a unique adaptation of Steve Reich’s modern minimalist masterwork, “Different Trains” presented at old Bushwick warehouse The Muse Brooklyn.

Reich wrote “Different Trains” while contemplating his childhood train trips in the 1940’s between New York and Los Angeles. As a Jew, it occurred to him that similar train trips in Europe during that time had a very different and haunting implication. In each of the three movements he explores America during the War, Europe during the War, and after the War with a soundscape of strings and pre-recorded electronics to both devastating and profoundly uplifting effect.

Saturday: Anti V-Day Pop Up market

1-7 p.m. at Cult Party, 53 Waterbury St.

Celebrate your heart of glass at Cult Party Boutique’s Anti V day pop-up. You can get badass flash tattoos (not of your ex flashing you, thankfully), so bring some uninked flesh to decorate yourself. No friends/lovers/FWBs necessary to participate.
