Oct. 4-Oct. 13
Art & Algorithms Festival
First things first: Yes, it’s a haul. Titusville is about an hour away, but some things are worth the travel time and we’re betting that this is one of them. A 10-day digital arts event, Art & Algorithms brings 3-D digital mapping projection, a holographic and lenticular art exhibit, a short film festival and more to the Space Coast – fitting, since the men and women of the aeronautics industry have plenty of experience creating beauty from math. Various times daily; downtown Titusville, Julia Street and Hopkins Avenue South, Titusville; visit website for details; artandalgorithms.com.

The Festival of Bacon
This is the first official go-round for this outdoor pig-inspired fete, and hungry festgoers get the chance to sample a multitude of bacon-inspired dishes created by more than 30 local restaurants – OLV, Porkie’s Original BBQ and the Hammered Lamb, among others. The buck doesn’t stop there, either, because you can wash down that salty, greasy pork with bacon beer and bacon cocktails (yes, you heard that right) and listen to live music provided by local standbys, including songstress Kaleigh Baker, one-man band Ben Prestage, country trio Good Luck Penny and more. With a paid ticket, you receive $10 in “bacon bucks” to spend on samples, which range from $2-$5. 11 am-7 pm Saturday; Festival Park, 2911 E. Robinson St.; $25-$35; festivalofbacon.com.

Hey Bartender
Fans of Redlight Redlight and the Courtesy will likely be interested in this 2013 documentary from Douglas Tirola that examines the resurgence of craft cocktail and bartending culture by following the struggles of two very different bartenders. One is an injured Marine who redirects his focus to become a bartender at the world’s best cocktail bar, and the other is a man who leaves his white-collar job to open his own dive; both stories are colored in by commentary from renowned bartenders. 1 pm Sunday; Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland; $10; 407-629-0054; enzian.org.

Sigur Rós, Julianna Barwick 
Winter is coming! The Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós changed their tune a bit aggressively on this year’s release Kveikur, but the decision was met with critical acclaim. This is their first time appearing in Orlando, and you can expect their visuals to be as spacey as their sound. No doubt experiencing Jónsi Birgisson’s unique falsetto live will make it even more fun watching him and the rest of the band when they appear in the next season of Game of Thrones. 8 pm; CFE Arena, University of Central Florida; $27.50-$47.50; 407-823-6006.

Growth in Transition: Sustainable Development – Fiction or Challenge?
Most of us already feel that listless anxiety about disparate (and huge) issues conflating into a giant mess of a future, but few are equipped to offer much more than small solutions or oversized rhetoric. Alexander Likhotal, a former adviser to Mikhail Gorbachev, attacks the issue of sustainability in a growing global culture with a unique, seemingly clinical perspective. Likhotal addresses the interconnectivity of our financial, ecological and social challenges, attempting to force a holistic solution that needs to come sooner than later. 10:30-11:30 am Wednesday; UCF Student Union, University of Central Florida; free; ucfglobalperspectives.org.

Artist-in-Residence One: Josette Urso Opening Reception 
One of the best things to happen on the art scene last year was the return of artists in residence to the Maitland Art Center, just as founder Andre Smith originally intended. Brooklyn abstract painter Josette Urso spent six weeks living and working on the beautiful grounds; in April, she told Orlando Weekly: “I work very intuitively, so I will bring only a ‘blank slate’ mind. Maitland’s environment will take me where it wants me to go.” Tonight is your chance to see where that was in oil paintings, watercolors and drawings inspired by her surroundings at the museum. 6-8 pm Friday; Maitland Art Center, 231 W. Packwood Ave., Maitland; $3; 407-539-2181; artandhistory.org.

Malick Sidibé Documentaries
Cosima Spender’s roughly hourlong Dolce Vita Africana expands understanding of the joyous and wild times in which Malian photographer Malick Sidibé worked, capturing the sly wit of the photographer (and his portrait subjects) and rocking an irresistible Afro-pop soundtrack. Malick Sidibé: Portrait of the Artist as a Portraitist is an eight-minute short, featuring a recent interview with Sidibé suffused with his charm and sweetness. Go early so you can peruse the Cornell’s Sidibé exhibit beforehand, if you haven’t already. 7 pm Thursday; Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park; free; 407-646-2526; rollins.edu/cfam.

Nerdapalooza 2013 
Nerdapalooza is your friend. Not your only friend. But a little glowing friend. It seems if all jocks think about is sports, then all these nerds think about is music, because this year’s lineup is beefed up, including They Might Be Giants and Nerf Herder as headliners. The festival also features more than 40 bands over three days, as well as an indie game showcase, vendors and visual artists. Plus – bonus item – the first day is free. It’s a stupid fun time that makes us wish we could always be stupid! Forever! 5 pm; Orange County Convention Center, 9990 International Drive; nerdapalooza.org; free single day; $70 weekend pass.

The Falcon Presents: 4th Annual Zombie Art Show
The Falcon’s indefatigable procession of themed group shows continues with their fourth Zombie Art Show, a collection of works inspired by those who walk after death and crave brains. These exhibitions-slash-parties can be a mixed bag (pretty much by definition), and it’s hard to predict what you’ll see when get there, but we’re quite taken with some early images from this year’s show that we’ve seen – in particular, Plinio Pinto’s series of bloody undead redheads. 8 pm Saturday; The Falcon, 819 E. Washington St.; free; 407-423-3060; thefalconbar.com.

Accidental Music Festival Presents the Dublin Guitar Quartet
This world-class Irish ensemble has a weakness for Ligeti, Glass, Part and Reich – and if you recognize those composers without their first names, you’ll get along just fine with the Dublin Guitar Quartet. Touring on their soon-to-drop album of Philip Glass string quartets (to be released on Glass’ own recording label), they perform in Orlando courtesy of the Accidental Music Festival, which morphs into a consistently forward-looking presenting group in the months between festivals. Their dedication to new music as opposed to old chestnuts serves them, and their audience, well. 7:30 pm Sunday; Orlando Museum of Art, 2416 N. Mills Ave.; $22; accidentalmusicfestival.com.

Orlando Zombie Ball 
The fine folks here at Orlando Weekly host the magazine’s first costume Halloween blowout, and this spooky shindig lands you with free drinks for the first hour, live entertainment and performances on stage, plus you can compete in a costume contest with the chance to win up to $1,000 in cash prizes. Costumes are mandatory, so don’t be caught dead (or undead!) without one. 8 pm Wednesday; Firestone Live, 578 N. Orange Ave.; $10-$15; 407-377-0400; orlandozombieball.com.

Suspiria 
Part of a less obvious Halloween trilogy, Suspiria rarely gets the big-screen time that other nightmares on certain streets do, but this 1977 Italian horror film starring Jessica Harper is as visually stunning as it is horrifyingly gory. Genuinely frightening, the camera angles employed are as unexpected as the film’s most shocking plot turns. Plus it features a prog-rock soundtrack by Goblin, a band that is basically director Dario Argento’s Ennio Morricone, which is cool if you can hear the music over your own screams. 8 pm Wednesday; Eden Bar at the Enzian, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland; free; 407-629-1088; enzian.org.

There Will Be Words Presents Dead Poets Slam
This version of the monthly TWBW offers a chance for local lit nerds to pay homage to their beloved late poets, as guests are invited to read poems in full costume with accompanying props. No doubt you’ll see a few tribute ’staches – whether it’s a macabre Poe or an unruly Twain – from the gentlemen, while the ladies might take a lyrical approach as Sara Teasdale or go a bit darker with stanzas by Sylvia Plath. We’ll give big ups to anyone who can pull off a Whitman beard, and we’d be pretty impressed to see someone show up in a full-on Emerson three-piece suit. At the very least, light a cig and say your Cummings. 9:30 pm Saturday; Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 E. Winter Park Road; free; 407-623-3393; stardustie.com.

The Nose
Just how important is a high profile in 19-century Russian society? When he wakes up without a nose, an ambitious but stuffy bureaucrat finds out in Nikolai Gogol’s absurdist 1836 parable, which Shostakovich used as libretto for his 1930s opera. These Met: Live in HD broadcasts beamed straight from New York’s Metropolitan Opera are a wonderful resource for Orlandoans starved for the kind of innovative staging that only a major opera house can afford, and the kind of unconventional operas few small regional companies would risk presenting; the sets and animated projections of this 2010 pruduction designed by William Kentridge are stunning; the cast is, fittingly, conducted by Pavel Smelkov. 12:45 pm Saturday, 6:30 pm Wednesday; various theaters; $22-$24; fathomevents.com.

Without new music, there would be no music – keep that in mind and support this local composers group by giving them a listen. Past salons have included audience-driven (via Twitter instructions) compositions and audiovisual treats courtesy of interaction between musical instruments and the big screen. 7:30 pm Sunday; Timucua White House, 2000 S. Summerlin Ave.; free; 407-595-2713; timucua.com.

Miranda Sings
Haters, back off! Comedian Colleen Ballinger’s charmingly oblivious alter ego, Miranda Sings, may not be explicitly based on Rebecca Black – Ballinger has that she was inspired by “cocky girls” in her college voice program who were terrible singers – but the yowling mannerisms of the girl who reminded the world that you gotta get down on Friday are definitely an element. Miranda’s skewed versions of pop songs, coupled with sexy-clown makeup and a sassy if ill-informed worldview, have gone viral – only confirming her massive self-confidence. If you aren’t a Mirfanda yet, you will be. 8 pm Tuesday; Orlando Improv, 9101 International Drive, Suite 2310; $22; 407-480-5233; theimprovorlando.com.

The Book of Mormon
If the thought of the first Broadway musical by the creators of South Park and Team America: World Police, isn’t enough to get you excited, perhaps you’ll enjoy the idea of a super-hummable song with the catchy refrain, “Orlando, I love you!” Mormons were more of a hot topic when the musical by Matt Stone, Trey Parker and Robert Lopez first hit Broadway (what with Big Love on HBO and ol’ Mittens Romney on the campaign trail), but their fish-out-of-water/coming-of-age tale of a Utah missionary sent to Uganda is still fresh. Broadway Across America Orlando presents the touring production, which is likely to sell out well ahead of time – don’t say we didn’t warn you. 8 pm Tuesday-Friday, 2 pm, 8 pm Saturday, 1 pm, 6:30 pm Sunday; Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, 401 W. Livingston St.; $50-$160; 800-982-2787; orlandobroadway.com.

Nine Inch Nails, Gary Numan
We’re not sure which blew our minds more, when the Associated Press embarrassingly printed that Nine Inch Nails covered Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” on this tour or the fact that we get to hear that throbbing wound of a song live on Halloween night. Plus, Nine Inch Nails has a storied live show that rumor has it will make those KISS and Paul McCartney Amway shows from earlier this year look like shadow puppet plays. May everyone in attendance come back haunted. 7:30 pm; Amway Center, 400 W. Church St.; $35.50-$99.50; 800-745-3000.
