Guide to what’s happening in Boston this week

Colorful costumes, thumping beats, balloons? Must be Bhangra!

Going out

Living Dead Uprising
Tonight, 6
Johnny D’s, 17 Holland St., Somerville, $15-$20
www.livingdeaduprising-boston.eventbrite.com/
Thanks to the Internet, we’re all zombies now. So why not embrace your zombie nature at this pub crawl/scavenger hunt? Have your face painted to look like the undead, and then traipse around Davis Square fulfilling zombie missions beamed to your smartphone (which all true zombies own) and hopefully upsetting random people with your ghoulish appearance.

Art

Julie Weiman and Julie Vinette
Through Nov. 26
Bromfield Gallery
450 Harrison Ave., Boston
Free, 617-451-3605
www.bromfieldgallery.com
The two Julies in this exhibition share abstract sensibilities along with names. Weiman’s side, “Wicked Lemonade,” features paintings with more than 20 layers of color, added and removed as she goes, producing a unique effect. Vinette’s work clashes chaos with order by painting curvaceous forms based on reflections off water, glass or chrome over a penciled grid resembling graph paper.

Edel Bordon and Yamile Pardo
Through Dec. 4
Galeria Cubana
460 Harrison Ave., Boston
Free, 617-292-2822
www.lagaleriacubana.com
A dual exhibition of Cuban art, Bordon’s work explores the human condition — his figures, even when with others, always seem lost in their own existential aloneness. Instead of people, Pardo depicts common objects  often those associated with femininity like boots, handbags and stockings; they seem as meaningless, without an owner, as Bordon’s people, without a purpose, appear to feel.

    
Music

SamulNori
Friday, 8 p.m.
Sanders Theatre
45 Quincy St., Cambridge
$28-$40, 617-876-4275
www.worldmusic.org
Kim Duk-Soo, master of the changgo, an hourglass-shaped drum, leads this Korean group as members skip in circles, leap and spin while dressed in big hats with long, colorful streamers.?They play drums and a screechy oboe-like instrument, making an exhilarating cacophony that’d pass for avant-garde noise music if it weren’t descended from a 5,000-year-old shamanic tradition.

Comedy

The Comedy Lab
Wednesday, 8 p.m.
ImprovBoston
40 Prospect St., Cambridge
$8-$10, 617-576-1253
www.improvboston.com
This show happens every Wednesday, but we wanted to clue you into a particular segment this month: “My Dark Love,” an ongoing improvised Twilight parody, which you can see next week and on Nov. 30.  

Dance

Boston Bhangra Competition
Saturday, 6 p.m.
The Orpheum
One Hamilton Pl., Boston
$20-$100, 617-448-2508
www.bostonbhangra.com
Teams from across North America will compete in this massive Indian dance-off. Modern Bhangra has roots in Punjabi folk dance and an affinity with hip-hop that has led to many crossovers: Missy Elliott famously used a Bhangra riff in “Get Ur Freak On.” The colorful costumes, thumping beats, elaborate routines and super-high energy should make this a very entertaining show.
