World Science Festival

Brooklyn Bridge Park : 12:00 p.m. daily from May 27 until May 31

Long gone are the days when science festivals were considered nerdy. With technology so entwined in our lives, we have a duty to be interested in how it all affects us — and, perhaps more pressingly, in what effects we are having on the world. Oh, and space; it's always cool to learn... More >>

Dumbo Festivals


Irving Plaza : 7:00 p.m. September 8

East Village Music

Ideas City 2015

New Museum of Contemporary Art : 9:30 a.m. daily from May 28 until May 24

IDEAS CITY, a biennial festival, brought more than 50,000 people to the Bowery for each of its past two runs. Did those people leave the festival enlightened? We can't know for sure, but we can say that, at the very least, it got lots of people thinking about the roles they play as urban... More >>

Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e Collection

Japan Society : 9:30 a.m. daily until June 7

Depictions of felines, it seems, have been popular throughout the ages. Before there was “Best Cat Vines of 2014,” Japanese artists created woodblock prints of their furry friends. Starting today, the Japan Society Gallery features Life of Cats: Selections from the Hiraki Ukiyo-e... More >>

East 40s Art - Museums


Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. daily until June 7

It’s about time Björk Guðmundsdóttir got herself a retrospective. As the mononymous singer, songwriter, and composer, she’s been freaking us out consistently for two decades now — in the best possible way. Starting today, the Icelandic artist claims three... More >>

West 50s Art - Museums

Reel Big Fish

Best Buy Theater : 7:30 p.m. June 16; 7:30 p.m. June 22

Last December was bittersweet for Reel Big Fish. The ska-punk band gave fans something to celebrate with the surprise Happy Skalidays EP, six tracks of Christmas covers and crudely named originals. On the other hand, the final month of 2014 brought about the departure of drummer Ryland... More >>

West 40s Music


Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. May 26

The first headliner for this show is rendered in all-caps because their name is an acronym: Fuck It Dog, Life’s A Risk. They’re skate punks from LA; what else can anyone expect? But the knowingly irreverent moniker belies FIDLAR’s serious, almost scholarly devotion to... More >>

Lower East Side Music

Matthew Weiner's Mad Men

Museum of the Moving Image : 10:30 a.m. daily until June 14

The final season of Mad Men debuted on April 5, and we’ll have to say goodbye, after eight years, to all the smoking, drinking, striving, cheating, casual sexism, and slick mid-century style of Don Draper and his pals. But now the Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a tribute to the... More >>

Astoria Television

Kevin Hart

Barclays Center : 10:30 p.m. July 9

Brooklyn Comedy

Trenton Doyle Hancock

Studio Museum Harlem : 12:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Hancock's self-portrait — a demonic figure with giant tube-shaped breasts — is decidedly unflattering, but it captures the essence of an artist immersed in the perversely humorous world of underground comics. This extensive survey features his long-running mythological story about... More >>

Harlem Art - Museums

New York City Ballet

David H. Koch Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily until June 7

The dazzling local team slices and dices its extensive repertory many ways for the 42 bills making up the New York City Ballet's spring season. This week, see George Balanchine's "Black & White" ballets: brilliant choreography, simply dressed. Later the dances are sorted by composers'... More >>

West 60s Dance

A Desire for Dramaticism: Semiotics of the 1980s Goth Subculture

Morbid Anatomy Museum : 8:00 p.m. May 28

Like Robert Smith's hair, the history of the goth aesthetic is wild, tangled, and probably dyed black. So how did we children of the night go from quiet, monochromatic, and — admit it — kind of chic vamps (here's looking at you, Sioux) to the bestudded Hot Topic mallrats parodied on... More >>

Brooklyn Talks

Chelsea Nights Concert Series

The Chelsea Market : 7:00 p.m. first Fri. of every month

Ever since it got cozy with the High Line in 2009, Chelsea Market has solidified its status as the classiest shopping mall that ever there was — where else can you pry into top-notch lobster while enjoying the sprawling vistas of an Anthropologie store? It also houses the Food Network... More >>

Chelsea Music

Nick Offerman

Barnes & Noble : 7:00 p.m. May 26

Nick Offerman stands for everything good and manly about America — tongue planted firmly in rugged cheek, of course. It's what made the Parks and Recreation star, woodworker, and proclaimed "mustache icon" perfect to play a sensitive Home Depot employee on John Oliver's Last Week Tonight,... More >>

The Chris Gethard Show Premiere Party

Rough Trade NYC : 7:00 p.m. May 28

NYC comedy veteran and perennial nervous guy Chris Gethard plays Ilana’s boss on Broad City and recently appeared as a juror in Amy Schumer’s 12 Angry Men episode. His fans know him for something else, though: The long-running Chris Gethard Show, a bizarre, unpredictable, and deeply... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Billy Joel

Madison Square Garden : 8:00 p.m. May 28; 8:00 p.m. June 20; 8:00 p.m. July 1; 8:00 p.m. August 20; 8:00 p.m. September 25; 8:00 p.m. October 21; 8:00 p.m. November 19; 8:00 p.m. December 17

Las Vegas was once the go-to spot for legendary musicians looking to settle down for a residency, but it looks like MSG and Billy Joel have found a way to take that concept home to New York. After playing a New Year's Eve show at Barclays, the Bronx-born, Long Island–bred performer, who... More >>

Chelsea Music

Slavic Soul Party!

Barbes : 10:00 p.m. every Tue.

Slavic Soul Party are Eastern Europe's answer to the funk (and "Grunt") of the J.B.'s or, more recently, the Budos Band. On their recordings, and every Tuesday at Barbès, the ten-person brass ensemble pins Gypsy melodies against the sort of jazzy r&b horn collages you hear in movies... More >>

Park Slope Music

La MaMa Moves!

La MaMa : 6:00 p.m. daily until June 21

Nicky Paraiso, arts entrepreneur extraordinaire, reins in his diverse enthusiasms only a little for this year's La MaMa Moves! dance festival, celebrating the tenth anniversary of his East Village bash. Tonight's gala celebrates Ellen Robbins, whose classes for kids have launched generations of... More >>

East Village Dance

A Curious Blindness

Columbia University, Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery : 1:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until June 13

Divya Mehra's minimalist neon sculpture A Brown Woman Drowned — a dark circle beneath a single wavy line — succinctly addresses that all-too-frequent indifference to a non-white death. Mehra is one of fifteen artists here who have focused, in various media, on race. Several pieces... More >>

Harlem Art - Galleries

This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:00 a.m. every 7 days until January 1

“This is for everyone” is a tweet by computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee — the inventor of the internet — that was used to light up an Olympic stadium in 2012. In This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good, MoMA borrows the tweet for its latest exhibit,... More >>

West 50s Art - Museums

Prize Prints: The Queen Sonja Print Award

Scandinavia House : 11:00 a.m. daily until August 1

Celebrating Scandinavian printmaking, the gallery presents work by two recent recipients of the queen of Norway's prize. Svend ­Allan Sørensen's roughly made images of birds and hunting convey a backwoods irreverence, as do his primitive graffiti­-like woodcuts of quips and... More >>

Chicano Batman

Subrosa : 8:00 p.m. May 27

Recent Jack White tour openers Chicano Batman resemble freaky-deaky prom kings as they play their psychedelic cumbias and Farfisa-driven ballads and prog-pop gems. The East Los Angeles quartet's latest album, Cycles of Existential Rhyme, is warm and deeply funky. Even an eighty-something mom... More >>
