Guide to what’s happening in New York this week

tUnE-yArDs is a chore to type out and only slightly simpler to listen to, 
the music riddled with jolting ups and downs. But get past the type, and there's a lot to love about Merrill Garbus’ chaotically looping, Afro-pop-inspired arrangements of ukulele, percussion and her own leaping, unpredictable voice (Monday, 8 p.m., (Le) Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker St., $20).

Theater

‘The Complete and Condensed Stage
Directions of Eugene O’Neill’
Through Oct. 1, Wednesday to Saturday, 8 p.m., Kraine Theater,
85 E. Fourth St., $18
Using Eugene O’Neill’s exacting stage direction instead of dialogue, the Neo-Futurists give a very cheeky idea of six early O’Neill plays. Audience members both familiar with O’Neill and new to his epic theatre will appreciate their non-pretentious approach.

Culture

2011 Next Wave Art
Through Dec. 18, BAM, 30 Lafayette Ave., Brooklyn, free
Celebrate 10 years of the Next Wave Art fest by ushering in a new group of groundbreaking Brooklyn artists. Curated by Dan Cameron, the show mixes media and message, but one thing remains constant: The borough repped is always Brooklyn.

Not My Day Job: Celebrate the Talent You Tip
Sunday, 1-6 p.m., The Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park S., $60-$80
 Because your Fatty ‘Cue waiter is actually a talented painter and your friendly PDT bartender is in a killer band, this showcase features the visual artwork and performances of multitalented restaurant professionals. Enjoy food, drink and talent from the aforementioned spots, plus dell’anima, Kuma Inn, Brooklyn Brewery, Shake Shack, Eataly and more.

Books

Lapham’s Quarterly Fall 2011 Launch: The Future
Saturday, 7 p.m.,
powerHouse Arena, 37 Main St., Brooklyn, free
The issue, which includes essays by Mark Twain and George Orwell, covers prophecies, oracles, utopias and dystopias spanning “more centuries than ever before,” beginning with the Book of Genesis and reaching into the year 800,000 as only Lapham’s can do.

Outside

Le Grand Fooding’s Campfire Session
Saturday, 6-10 p.m.,
Elizabeth Street Garden, 209 Elizabeth St., $50
Le Grand Fooding is pairing musicians with chefs. James Murphy joins Inaki Aizpitarte (of Le Chateaubriand), and Dante Gonzales (of Dante Fried Chicken) teams up with Muhsinah. Other notable contributors include Sasha Petraske (of Milk & Honey), Sondre Leche and Nancy Whang.

Music
 
The Raincoats
Friday, 8:30 p.m., Knitting Factory Brooklyn, 261 Driggs Ave., Williamsburg, $22
The Raincoats’ all-female lineup made them one of the most revolutionary groups in the early days of punk. Contemporaries of the Slits and Delta 5, the group was no doubt an influence on Kathleen Hanna and her early-’90s colleagues — as well as a favorite of Kurt Cobain’s.

Multiverse Playground Part III
Saturday, 11 a.m.-11:30 p.m., 104 Emerson Place, Clinton Hill, $8
Our friends at Paper Garden Records have booked an incredible lineup of bands (including awesome girl rockers Eula and Flavorpill alum Arms), comedy and DJs, all of which you can enjoy while sipping free PBR and Vitamin Water and eating gratis hot dogs.

Ghostland Observatory

Saturday, 8 p.m.,
Terminal 5, 610 W. 56th St., $30
Austin duo Ghostland Observatory fuse sprawling, futuristic electro with Rapture-style spastic rock, describing their sound as “a robot making love to a tree.” Their live shows are where the real magic happens: smoke machines, lasers and disco balls, oh my!

New York Philharmonic presents Christopher Plummer and ‘Henry V’
Saturday, 8 p.m., Avery Fisher Hall, 65th Street and Columbus Avenue, $35-$145
Rousing, romantic and patriotic, the soundtrack of Laurence Olivier’s 1944 film version of “Henry V” transcends its World War II origins. Of course, music for Shakes­peare sounds better with Shake­speare. Joining the NYP to speak those lines is Christopher Plummer, who first gained attention when he played Henry in 1956.

Fitness

Global Mala Yoga for Peace
Sunday, noon-3 p.m., Battery Park, 20 State St., $20-$25
Yoga and meditation don’t just bring the practitioner peace, and the Global Mala Yoga for Peace event seeks to prove it. People all over the world are coming together to do 108 Sun Salutations simultaneously, followed by a joint Kirtan.
