Repeater: A Little Show About Big Songs, QED – Queens, 8:30pm – 10pm

Music fans Evan Forde Barden and Patrick Cartelli host this monthly talk show about people’s favorite songs. Each month, they invite a special guest to share one song that they love – be it an all-time favorite, a track that reminds them of a great story, or something that just blew their minds. Then a musician takes the stage to cover it and play a song of their own. Think “You Made It Weird” meets “VH1 Storytellers.” This month features Josh Sharp (The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, Joe’s Pub) and Jacob Sharp (Mipso, mandolin/vocalist). $5.
