And we’re back to grey. No bother, though, cuz that steamy, sticky heaviness in the air has everyone feeling a wee bit frisky. Nothing to do but indulge, right? Lucky for us there are treats to be had all over the place: Sweet Toof arrives this week, as does the all-night happy birthday bash for Tandem, and have I mentioned 3 hours of me serving you beer? Come on, you can’t miss that.
Good news: Arts in Bushwick has extended BOS’11 registration until Sunday, May 1st. If you haven’t been to a mixer yet (and even if you have) head to Bodega Wine Bar tonight at 7pm and get involved. It’s fun!
Low Lives 3, which features more than 50 live performances transmitted over the web and projected all over the world in real time, is upon us. Co-produced by Chez Bushwick, you can watch (and discuss) tonight’s screenings at the Center for Performance Research (tomorrow night you have to stream it).
At Centotto go catch the opening for Landscapes Metamorphic, Topologies Chromatoplastic, featuring works by Cynthia Hartling, Francesco Longenecker, Layton Hower and MaryKate Maher. This looks like a really beautiful show.
Small Black Door, another new-ish project space, brings us their second exhibition tonight, titled small.black.show. It’s a group show featuring 15 artists, which makes me wonder how literal that ‘small’ is meant to be.
Those Famous Accountants are at it again, this time with a straight-up painting show, featuring the super talented Matthew Miller and five of his iconoclastic self-portraits. the magic black of an open barn door on a really sunny summer day, when you just cannot see into it opens at 7pm tonight, and ends with a very special after party at Café Ghia! Drink specials, DJ Scot Bowman, good times, fun people – all guaranteed.
Brooklyn Fire Proof hosts a Japanther Japan Benefit, with all proceeds going to the Japan Red Cross. With a full list of bands on the bill, plus tons of cool raffle prizes, it’s the best $10 you’ll spend all week.
The Garden of Eve premiers tonight at 950 Hart Gallery. There will be new paintings by collective members Michael Kronenberg, Mikki Nylund, and Antoinette Johnson, an installation by Bill Bond (that you can touch, I think), and a musical performance by Veronica Isley. Oh, and some apples.
Tandem turns 2 years old! Be sure to swing by and help them celebrate (midnight to 1am seems like a good time: it’s free PBR hour).
It’s Spring Clean Up Day at The Onderdonk House (tomorrow too). Help out! It’s good for you.
Starting now, head to Pine Box Rock Shop on Sunday nights and you can watch AMC’s The Killing, drink 2-for-1 priced wine, and eat $5 olive plates. Sweetness.
The Bodega presents WHOAH: whole album humpdays. Tonight’s installment features two albums from Mister David Bowie, and begins at 6pm. I’d be punctual for this – all drafts are 2-for-1 for as long as the albums play!
