From Bach to Brokeback

Bach Around the Clock, Stereolab, and the Oscars top our must-see list.


Enjoy nine hours of Johann Sebastian's music, plus that of a few contemporaries and family members, at Town Hall's Bach Around the Clock: keyboard, chamber, orchestral, and choral works interspersed with dance, jazz, and didgeridoo reinterpretations. 11 a.m.–8 p.m. Sun., March 5. Free. Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave., GAVIN BORCHERT


The debut of !!ArtsLaunch!!, Richard Hugo House's new cross-disciplinary performance series, will join dancers (including Subhashini Vijay Santhanam, pictured), musicians, writers, visual artists, and henna artists, with a "Talk Back" to follow. 7 p.m. Sun., March 5. $5. Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave., 206-380-3445, GAVIN BORCHERT


If you could invite any three historical figures to an Oscar party, who would they be? You could do a lot worse than Johnny Cash (Walk the Line), Edward R. Murrow (Good Night, and Good Luck), and Truman Capote (Capote). Especially with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart acting as host. (See related story, p. 69.) 5 p.m. (4 p.m. preshow) Sun., March 5, on ABC.
