Here’s a few ideas:
Saturday, November 17
There’s a Rocks Off Concert Cruise tonight at 9 with Future Rock(“electro-live mad scientists”), DJ crew Orchard Lounge, and video mashups from Clay Dempsey. It’s a lot of music, dancing, drinking, food, and visual stimulation, and it’s aboard The Temptress, which is described as “a floating balloon” (that is a boat and not a floating balloon) and thus not affected by inclement weather. It leaves from Pier 81, at 41st Street and the West Side Highway, and if you would like to go, please buy your $20 tickets here, quickly.
Also, My Brightest Diamond is at the Gramercy Theater tonight, how about that?
Sunday, November 18
Brian Jacques, the creator of the Redwall series (you know, where the little animals lived in villages and abbeys and had feasts of acorns and such) will be at Symphony Space to discuss his new website. It sounds a little weird, but who knows. It’s Guys Read, and it’s a dating website for teenage boys… to find matches with BOOKS. It’s at 1pm at Symphony Space, and it costs $18 at the door. This is less of a recommendation than a hey do you guys remember.
The “Hansel and Gretel” exhibition opened on Friday at the Arnold & Marie Schwartz Gallery Met, at Lincoln Center, to commemorate the new opera of the same name. It’s a collaboration between New Yorker artists and the Metropolitan Opera, and it’s lots of creepy and hilarious artworks inspired by the legendary children who saved themselves and cooked the witch. It’s free, check it out. Click here to see a slideshow of the art without going anywhere, I recommend that slideshow.
OK, that’s it for this weekend, hope everyone has a great time. See you on Monday.
