Also on Saturday you can go to 21st St. and Park Ave. for a free astronomy-themed concert; “pieces written by Bach, Purcell and Handel, each with their own historical tie to astronomy will be performed by a small orchestra to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy.”

Enjoy the sun on Sunday on the deck of The Half Moon Cruise Ship; the RUDE New York crew will be joined by VDRK and Flashmen for an afternoon of beautiful views and drinks in the sun.

I had such an amazing night last night… I’m looking forward to telling you all about it but first- this weekend is going to be a blast!

Tonight if you’ve never been to Monkey Town this is an excellent night to go; Black Acid is playing live followed by psychedelic head music from DJ Richard Fearless (Death in Vegas) and visuals by Lazy Eye and The Stones IT.

Also tonight New York Underbelly invites you to party at Crash Mansion:

We start with some post punk stylings, each unique in its own way. Esque and Tyburn Saints kick it off, with the House of Leaves powering in as well. Then we change directions with Delexilio, who take the late night crowd on a funky dance trip…

RSVP for free admission before 11 and open bar between 9 and 10!

I’d like to recommend two great events for art enthusiasts this weekend. The first is the Brklyn Designs show in DUMBO. The New York Times has come through with an excellent map of the designers participating in the gallery and home tours, parties, tips on green living and other awesome events.

The second artsy extravaganza I want to direct your attention to is the fifth installment of the Scion Installation Art Tour: Installation 5: Self Portraits.

This year each artist was asked to create his or her literal, or non-literal interpretation of the theme ‘Self-Portraits’. Video art will be included for the first time in the tour’s five-year history, alongside painting and photography.

Head over to the Showroom NYC to see the introspective creations of these talented artists.

Saturday afternoon head over to Pier 1 to participate in FlyNY 2009; live out your Mary Poppins dreams by creating and flying your very own kite.


Also on Saturday you can see The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus perform Buckaroo Bindlestiff’s Wild West Jamboree at the Brooklyn Public Library. You may remember that the last time I mentioned them they were playing at Dixon Place; check out that post for a video of them in action!

Have you ever wondered what the plural of Elvis might be? Wonder no longer! It’s Elvi, and you can be one of them on the Elvis Bar Crawl Saturday night. Join the kings at Thunder Jacksons or check the website for locations they’ll be hitting later on.


Sunday is Mother’s Day so be sure to give her a call or if she’s in the area I’d recommend making her brunch at home as all the restaurants are going to be a bit crazy. It’s also going to be a fairly decent day weather-wise so you might consider going to one of the parks or botanical gardens in the area.

Have a lovely weekend and stay tuned for additions!
