    Cro-Mags frontman John Joseph leads this walking tour of the LES' gritty history.

    Not for the kids: See old gang hangouts and drug spots, as well as the birthplaces of NYC's punk scene.

  • Literary Lush: Hemingway in Havana & Paris

    The Dead Rabbit hosts two days devoted to the great author and boozer, exploring the man's life and liquor.

  • Don't Tell Mom: Tween Dweam Social

    We don't know why art collective Flux Factory would host an '80-teen-themed blowout, but we're not complaining.

    Party plan: Outfitted like your parents' basement, it's got pizza, a "secret bar," and karaoke.

    Sat 8p. Flux Factory, 39-31 29th St. (40th Ave.) Long Island City. $10 here.

    Nearby: Arepas Cafe; Salt & Fat; Cafe Triskell

  • Cut Ups: Found Footage Festival vs. Found Magazine

    Yep, it's all found objects at this battle with vets of The Onion, Letterman, and This American Life.

    Don't get lost: Found videos and found notes duel in bouts promising "music, comedy and blood."

    Sun 7p. Littlefield, 622 Degraw St. (4th Ave.), Gowanus. $10-14 here.

    Nearby: Littleneck; The Pines; Zuzu Ramen
