Legendary filmmaker and noted wackadoo John Waters will be spinning tales -- we imagine he'll include stories from his recent hitchhiking adventures -- for two nights only at City Winery. [via Time Out]

Today marks the opening of Photoville, a free event spanning two weekends, taking place in  Brooklyn Bridge Park. Over 30 freight containers will be transformed into mini-photo exhibits, featuring works from the New York Times, Parsons MFA students, the experimental Viennese photo collective Lomography, among many others. There'll also be lectures, workshops, a "photo dog run" and food trucks.  [Brooklyn Based]

Swedish quintet The Hives, who rose to prominence in the early-aughts alongside other "The" bands like The Strokes and The White Stripes.... are back. The band (who we just featured in our summer music issue) play their fast, brash and loud tunes off their new record Lex Hives tonight Terminal 5. [Flavorpill]

It's your absolute last chance to snatch up some dapper hats at the Eugenia Kim semi-annual sample sale which boasts chapeaus ranging from $5 to $145. The sale ends today. [NY Mag]

Los Angeles

Screen shot 2012-06-21 at 12.57.55 PM.pngTonight marks the 20th anniversary of the Rock Bottom Remainders, a band comprised of famous non-professional-musicians -- including Stephen King, Amy Tan, Scott Turow, Roy Blount Jr., Greg Iles, Ridley Pearson, James McBride, Matt Groening, Mitch Albom and Dave Barry, among others. They'll be playing one of their last public performances tonight at the El Rey, a decision spurred by the death last month of the group's founder, Kathi Goldmark. Roger McGuinn of The Byrds will help out and all proceeds will benefit First Book, the Los Angeles Downtown Women's Center. [Flavorpill]

Liars have come a long way from being that band with the lead guy who dated Karen O in the early-aughts. Their latest album, WIXIW (incidentally, it's pronounced "wish you"), released earlier this month, sees the New York trio going in a haunting, more Radiohead-y direction. Rolling Stone described the record as "an album that creeps you out even as it sucks you in."  They play at The Fonda Theatre. [LA Weekly]

Zac Monday presents a unique performance art show tonight at Hammer Museum. Performers will be wearing the artist's intricate hand-crocheted costumes and enacting different scenarios throughout the space. There are no set times, but performances will be taking place throughout the day today, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. [zing]

As part of their first tour in two years, which they're calling "The Global Warming Tour," they'll will be playing tonight at the The United Center with Cheap Trick. [Chicago Reader]

Iris Dupont, the off-beat prep-school heroine of Jennifer Miller's novel, The Year of the Gadfly,  only has one friend -- the ghost of legendary broadcast journalist, Edward R. Murrow. Sounds weird and fun! Miller reads tonight at The Book Cellar. [Flavorpill]


2012JackWhiteEmbargoedPR300112.jpgThere's really no one quite like Jack White. His new album, which also happens to be his first solo LP, Blunderbuss, is a sad and wonderful collection of lovelorn pop tunes. White plays at the Hammersmith Apollo with up and coming folk sister act First Aid Kit. [TimeOut London]

At tonight's edition of Buttoned Down Disco, dance the night away to DJ Christian Laing and Pete Wheeler's mix of indie-pop and electro aboard The Battersea Barge, docked along the Thames. [via Time Out

"The Weird, the Wacky and the Wonderful" exhibition at the Architecture Space at the Royal Academy of Arts, brings together images of, well, weird, wacky and wonderful buildings, which fall under the "quirkitecture" moniker. [zing]
