14 THURS, Gilberto Rodriguez

Luna’s Café & Juice Bar, 8 p.m.,no cover (two-drink minimum)

Here’s something different for you, especially if you are sick of going to a venue only to see some certified wanker, wanking his guitar all night long: Gilberto Rodriguez, Dylan Morgan and Russell Brown will present an uncanny night of Charles Baudelaire, William Shakespeare, Friedrich Hölderlin, Oscar Wilde and César Vallejo, along with original pieces “interwoven with cello, keyboards, percussion, guitar and screams.” Poetry and music. The night, like Rodriguez himself, will be filled with wine-stained teeth, literary bravado and, of course, madness. 1414 16th Street, www.lunascafe.com.
