Tuesday, August 7th

Still more proof that the city is the new suburbs: Along with the proliferation of big-box stores and people staying home on Saturday night to watch their flat-screen TVs, the unironic rise in popularity of bowling. Tonight, idiots line up behind the velvet ropes (!) of Bowlmor Lanes for the 2007 Bowling Ball, thrown by dosomething.com (hey, was that not the charity of Melrose Place hunk and general dim bulb Andrew Shue?). Due east, at the still-chugging Joe’s Pub, pretty songstress Mary McBride—the older stepsister of improbably cast Incredible Hulk Edward Norton—takes the stage with her “All-Boy, All-Star” band.

[Bowling Ball 2007, Bowlmor Lanes, 110 University Place, 9:30 p.m., www.dosomething.org; Mary McBride & Her All-Boy, All-Star Band, Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette Street, www.joespub.com]
