In town for one performance only, The Fab Four—The Ultimate Beatles Tribute sends audiences on a time-bending trip to the 1960s soundtracked by the lads from Liverpool’s greatest hits and die-hard fan favorites. Emceed by an actor channeling Ed Sullivan, the multimedia production boasts a talented cast showing off their uncanny impersonations of John, Paul, George, and MacGyver. Live note-for-note re-creations of the group’s classic hits include renditions of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Yesterday,” “A Day in the Life,” and “Hey Jude.” With three costume changes, the show covers the Beatles' developing style, from the early days through Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to their brief stint as country band Uncle Ringo and the Hungry Blues. The touring production plays the palatial St. George Theatre, where the baroque furnishings offer plenty of murals, tiled fountains, and sculpted figures to keep eyes entertained before the show.

Layers upon layers of press clippings — three from the New York Times, others from Ploughshares and Time Out — cling to The Poetry Society of New York, whose diverse projects and events in the named of poetic excellence can't help but attract attention. After all, this is the organization behind the New York City Poetry Festival, whose poets, poetry fans, craft vendors, and food gather annually on Governor's Island to cite verse, hone imaginations, and pole-vault using nothing but giant quill pens.

The Poetry Society of New York also pilots Brothel Books, a small publisher aiming to "[b]ring orange groves to New York City" by printing epic, affecting work. The society's other programs include an ongoing reading series that's hosted poets well-known and obscure since 1978, an immersive theatrical experience called The Poetry Brothel, and a video literary journal. It's all in support of the organization's mission statement, whose three-item list of goals concludes with a simple promise: "to never bore you."

Undead Music Festival celebrates the eternal pioneers of New York's instrumental and jazz scene with four nights of artist-oriented concerts and events. The jubilee of jams kicks off with Wednesday night's marathon of concerts at Le Poisson Rouge. Audience members migrate as freely as birds with jetpacks between the three neighboring venues. Playing Le Poisson Rouge that night are Elysian Fields, where Jennifer Charles's sultry vocals breeze over dark instrumentals, and Ben Perowsky's Moodswing Orchestra with TK Wonder, whose vocals infuse the bare, layered trip-hop with a subdued intensity. Sullivan Hall features Stabbing Eastward, with Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio notoriety, and the Chicago Underground Duo grace Kenny's Castaways with a mature sound, rooted in jazz fusion.

Intimate and minimalist in black lacquer and exposed brick, the Canal Room is as comfortable hosting '80s and '90s parties with celebrity impersonators as it is with A-list concerts starring Jay-Z, Elvis Costello, or John Legend. A VIP lounge area lined with palms and ebony booths flank a bright hardwood dance floor, where concerts and parties unfold. The calendar entices families and VIPs alike, and the facility also makes way for private events such as birthday parties and echo contests.
