PERFORMANCE: Jen and Outlaw's "Super Supra Diluvian: at Allegra LaViola
Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw's messy interactive performances have so far included a food truck serving Southern-style crayfish and a human-powered fountain in which performers spit water at passersby. Tonight they plan to "gild" themselves in a send-up of art-world excess, attaching themselves to a wheel that will regularly submerge them in golden liquid. Guests are invited to participate in activities including a one-of-a-kind "ridable sculpture." The show also includes a series of collages exploring mythology and contemporary culture.
Allegra LaViola Gallery, 179 East Broadway. (917) 463-3901. 6 p.m.

CABARET: Our Hit Parade at Joe's PubA troupe of some of the best New York cabaret performers join hosts Kenny Mellman of Kiki and Herb fame and crass dynamo Bridget Everett at tonight's installment of wonderfully weird revue Our Hit Parade. Mellman, Everett and tonight's guests, including Cole Escola, Cheryl Freeman and Molly Pope, perform their amusing interpretations of pop hits currently topping the charts. (For a taste of the insanity you can expect tonight, here's Escola performing Taylor Swift's "Fifteen" as "a business man from the city" whose father died of Lou Gherig's disease and who is returning to his childhood home after 10 years. What? Exactly.) Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette Street. (212) 539-8778. 9:30 p.m. $20.
