THE MAGELLAN CYCLE

One of the most audacious projects in the history of movies, avant-garde filmmaker Hollis Frampton's Magellan was intended to be shown in a year-long calendrical cycle. Frampton had completed only eight hours (less than a quarter) of his ironic, encyclopedic epic when he died in 1984; this rare presentation is

based on his last work-in-progress screening. HOBERMAN

THE 28TH NEW YORK SALSA FESTIVAL

For decades the stars performing under the Fania All-Star's rubric formed a Who's Who of the top recording talent then ruling the New York salsa circuit. Proven crowd-pleasers like Cheo Feliciano, Yomo Toro, and Ismael Miranda again rally under bandleader Johnny Pacheco's flag, and will no doubt commemorate two recently fallen pillars of the Fania legacy: songwriter Tite Curet Alonso and songstress Celia Cruz.

Books

SEMEZDIN MEHMEDINOVÍC

Say his name several times and it starts to sound like prayer. Now spell it. Now put down what you're doing and pick up Nine Alexandrias (City Lights), his perfectly proportioned book of poems that scan the American landscape for epiphany and Cadillacs. "The hacienda, La Castañeda, is run down/And has nothing in common with Carlos," but that's OK. PARK

Film

TOUCHEZ PAS AU GRISBI

That's "Don't Touch the Loot!," pal. Jacques Becker's 1954 evocation of a Montmartre criminal demimonde paved the way for Rififi and Bob le Flambeur. Making his post-World War II comeback, Jean Gabin plays a suavely aging gangster. The print, however, is new and Touchez Pas's other attractions include a young, ponytail-switching Jeanne Moreau as a treacherous piece of grisbi. HOBERMAN

Through September 18, Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street, 212.727.8110

Dance

BILL T. JONES/ARNIE ZANE DANCE COMPANY

To say this troupe is celebrating its 20th anniversary sidesteps the brilliant work Jones and Zane made in the '70s and very early '80s, before they formed their ensemble. In this two-week run Blauvelt Mountain (A Fiction), Duet x2, Zane's Continuous Replay, and Jones's talking solo Floating the Tongue will be reprised by others; Jones introduces each show and makes surprise appearances. ZIMMER

At 8, and September 10 through 13, and 18 through 20,

ANDREW WK+HIGH ON FIRE

AWK brings his adrenaline-fueled, anthemic speed-metal-power-rock show to NYC to celebrate the release of his new album, The Wolf. The new stuff sounds a lot like the old, with "Long Live the Party" and "Your Rules" rivaling anything on I Get Wet. A couple of cheesy ballads disappoint, though. High on Fire sound like WK on 15 Valium—but their Sabbathy stoner rock is just as conducive to partying hard. With Vaux. SWITZER

THE EX+ROGERS SISTERS

Amsterdam radical crackpots the Ex have fought the good fight since 1979: chanted slogans of proletariat uprising, serrated bass-and-drums jostle, guitars gushing Andy Gill-worthy feedback. Recent history has made their new EP's rants about art, sisterhood, labor, and Kissinger feel more timely than ever. The Bush Tetras-like Rogers Sisters are among the best of countless current Brooklyn bands whose noise and rhythm owe the Ex a beer. EDDY

Tuesday at 9, through September 10, Knitting Factory Main Space, 74 Leonard Street, 212.219.3006
