‘The Swell Season' Has Lots of Heart

PFF Pick: Fans of the 2006 film Once will instantly recognize Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, the leads from that fictional film about two young musicians who fall in love. In the documentary film The Swell Season, we find out what happened after Once was released, when the on-screen couple became a real-world one. $12. 7 p.m.

Cymballic: Staten Island's Cymbals Eat Guitars take their indie mantle pretty seriously: At times, they can be lush and measured; other times recklessly loud and driven, with a heavy dose of their two namesake instruments. They play tonight at the First Unitarian Church. $12. 8 p.m.

Beer Reverence: There are beer-loving bars and then there are beer-reverential bars. Count the Abbaye in the latter category, with an exhaustive selection of possibilities (11 taps, 27 bottles) and a winningly robust happy hour: $2 drafts, $3 well drinks, $5 wine, $2 rotating bottle. 4-6 p.m.

Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck every afternoon by peeping Play's Dance Card.
