  • Poor Sid: PUNK — Chaos to Couture

    The Met Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit this year focuses on the influence of punk culture on designers.

    Love it or hate it: Maybe it's blasphemy, but Anna Wintour was forced to look at those rebuilt CBGB bathrooms, and that's hilarious.

    Thru Aug 14. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 5th Ave. (E. 82nd St.), Upper East Side. $25 here, or suggested donation.

    Nearby: Jackson Hole; Cafe Sabarsky; Serafina

  • Sound Scene: Downtown Music Festival

    Indie acts invade Lower Manhattan for two days of rock, hip-hop and electropop at various venues.

    Acts up: We like Purity Ring, Earl Sweatshirt, and Nguzunguzu (who doesn't even take the stage until 3a).

    Fri-Sat. Tickets and lineup here.

  • Skyscraping Cinema: Rooftop Films

    The summer series returns for its 17th year, with an opening weekend of Frances Ha (sold out, unfortunately) and short films.

    Encore show: After the opening night series of shorts from around the world, stick around for the after party.

    Fri-Sat. Open Road Rooftop, 350 Grand St. (Essex St.), Lower East Side. $13-23 here.

    Nearby: Fat Radish; Barrio Chino; Pig & Khao

  • Land of the Rising Buns: The All-Asian Burlesque Spectacular

    Ladies of the East — led by Calamity Chang and Sukki Singapora (Singapore's first burlesque star) — descend on LPR.

    More stars: A live band backs the whole shebang; stay tuned for an appearance from the legendary Barbara Young.

    Tonight 7p. Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker St. (Thompson St.), West Village. $20-35 here.

    Nearby: Saxon + Parole; The Bitter End; BONDST
