Events are little pillboxes from which we tweet, ROFL and roll. I sometimes wish that people tweeted less while at such happenings, but then again, how would I know if the beer is already gone or if there is an actual fire at the back entrance? Also, I’m a hypocrite. In the coming days we have a few events that we’re excited to share with you. So share we shall .

(This will probably get updated a few times in the next day or two.)

Thursday 4/22

Music

ArpLine is playing a free show at Death By Audio (49 S. 2nd st. Brooklyn, NY), here’s a track of theirs to play to see if you’d like to go check them out.

Friday 4/23

Art

Adam Green is doing his cross media dance with a gallery show of his paintings titled “Teen Tech” at Morrison Hotel Gallery (313 Bowery, NYC, in the old CBGB’s space). On Thursday night is the VIP opening, but on Friday the 23rd, I imagine all gallery visitors will be let in to see the pieces. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Artists for Peace and Justice, a group whose work we wholeheartedly promote, all of their proceeds are donated to charity causes, and currently the cause is the rebuilding of Haiti. The subject of Green’s paintings are the adventures of a young lass known as Madam Greene, who tours with a fresh band known as the Bawdy Leeches.

I’m kidding, I haven’t seen the work yet, but here’s a part of the official press release about it: 12 sculptures of plaster, papier-mâché, or papier-mâché and mixed materials; 18 large-scale (30″ x 40″) acrylic or watercolor paintings; 19 drawings; and 20 collages (created together with model Cory Kennedy).  Need I say more?

Adam Green plays his NYC hometown at Bowery Ballroom, the last of his two final U.S. tour dates in support of his latest album, Minor Love.  Openers Dead Trees is also Green’s backing band.  The middle slot goes to Nickel Eye, solo project of The Strokes’ bassist Nikolai Fraiture.

Isn’t it handy how the opening of Green’s Teen Tech debut art show coincides?

Party

Oceans of Blood

A fundraiser for a flotilla of art boats down Ganges river is seeking your attention at the Gowanus Ballroom (69 9th st. between 2nd Ave. and Gowanus Canal). It will apparently feature a two story slip and slide of blood and a floating champagne bar which basically summarizes screws the history of the Ganges  river from both sides. This will be the best party, period.

9:30PM – onward

$15 ($10 in a period costume)

Tribeca Film Festival: Cinema Under the Stars

So you don’t have the $25 or so to go to one of Tribeca Film Festival’s proper screenings, or better yet, an invite to one of the plethora of after-parties for the films opening this weekend.  Here’s a free option: Caesars Atlantic City will host the screening of “The Birth Of Big Air.” The film is a documentary about extreme sports superstar Mat Hoffman, and also features Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze. The event is free to the public. The Tribeca Drive In begins at 6 PM, activities and programming starts at 6:30 PM, and the screening will begin at dusk, about 8:15 PM.

6pm – 9pm The World Financial Center Plaza, North End Ave, New York, NY (map)
