It’s going to be a great weekend to spend outdoors. But when you just can’t stand the sunshine any longer, here’s a look at some of the arts and entertainment events happening on the Lower East Side:
If you’re in the mood to listen to some music this weekend, here are a few suggestions from Ken Beasley. Tonight at Rockwood Music Hall (5pm), guitarist Adam Levy. Tomorrow night at the Stone, take in the experimental jazz with San Francisco’s Rova Sax Quartet (John Zorn joins in at 10pm). And Sunday at the Mercury Lounge, go retro with the Roulette Sisters and the Debutante Hour. Links and more info in Ken’s picks, posted earlier in the week.
At University Settlement tonight, the Joseph Webb Quartet.
At the Museum at Eldridge Street Sunday, internationally recognized clarinetist Joel Rubin leads a multimedia celebration of Dave Tarras, “the father of klezmer.”
Saturday night at the New Museum, hear Elaine Summers, pioneering choreographer and multi0disciplinary artist. Or see her retrospective at the Dancespace Project on East 10th Street tonight or tomorrow.
At Dixon Place, tonight and tomorrow at 10pm, it’s Dopplegangers: A Love Story. Michael Cross Burke and Krys Fox’s collaborative performance piece that touches on identity, porn and drugs. Explicit content.
Opening at ABC No Rio tonight, the 2010 Ides of March, their building-wide exhibition featuring more than 50 artists.
It’s the Art Handling Olympics on Sunday, at the Ramiken Crucible Gallery. Come celebrate the unsung heroes!
