Weekend Arts & Entertainment

Along with our weekly music and art opening picks (not to mention the Big Art Group Takeover at Abrons), here are a few other activities you might want to check out on this action-packed weekend:

James Braly

Writer/performer/storyteller James Braly will preview his newest work-in-progress, Asylum, tonight and tomorrow night at Dixon Place.  Braly is best known for his successful one-man show, Life in a Marriage Institution, and for his ongoing hijinks at the famed story-telling joint, The Moth. Asylum is the (real-life?) story of a high school pothead who checks himself into the only place he can’t get high: a psychiatric hospital. $10. 8pm.
