Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) : 10:30 a.m. daily until July 19

In 1955, the MoMA exhibited a ten-year survey called "Latin American Architecture Since 1945." You can imagine how much building in Latin America has expanded, parsed down, twisted, and gone beyond the imaginations of anybody who saw that original exhibit 60 years ago. Latin America in... More >>

Obscura Day

Roosevelt Island : 9:00 a.m. May 30

Atlas Obscura, David Plotz's National Geographic–like compendium of curios, just raised itself a cool $2 million in funding. The result? More feature-length articles, a 2016 book on the horizon, and more cool excursions. Way more, actually. Today's first annual Obscura Day comprises 150... More >>

Roosevelt Island Festivals

39 Steps

Union Square Theatre : 2:00 p.m. every Wed., Sat. until September 7; 8:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until September 7; 3:00 p.m. every Sun. until September 7; 7:00 p.m. every Mon. until September 7

This Tony­-winning spoof of Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 classic has played in New York numerous times before — prior venues include the American Airlines Theatre, the Cort Theatre, and the Helen Hayes — and was such a rousing success that a return run ought to be embraced with open... More >>

Union Square Theater

It Shoulda Been You

Brooks Atkinson Theatre : 8:00 p.m. daily until September 13

David Hyde Pierce, who collected four Emmys as Dr. Niles Crane on Frasier, has been no less of a force on the stage, having recently won a Tony for his leading performance in the musical Curtains. This latest project is a don't-miss affair, as it constitutes Pierce's Broadway directing debut.... More >>

West 40s Theater

Björk

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 >>

Brian Brooks Moving Company/Pontus Lidberg Dance

Joyce Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily from June 2 until June 7

Two award-winning choreographers, an American grounded in abstract modern gesture and a Swede from a ballet background who makes compelling dance film and live performance, split a week. Tonight through Thursday, the Brian Brooks Moving Company offers a New York premiere set to Steve Reich's... More >>

Chelsea Dance

Hip-Hop Revolution

Museum of the City of New York : 10:00 a.m. daily until September 13

Jazz was invented in New Orleans, and London has some claim to punk (or so the Brits insist), but hip-hop is all New York's own. Today the Museum of the City of New York opens Hip-Hop Revolution, a photography exhibit showcasing the early days of a new cultural movement, from its birth on city... More >>

East Harlem Art - Museums

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas

Baby's All Right : 7:00 p.m. June 2

On their Instant Records debut, Secret Evil, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas shuffles together rockabilly and punk with a side of trombone for a distinctly modern take on the well-worn genres. But there's more promise in the ingredients than the results. There's no standout, torch-bearing track... More >>

Williamsburg Music

The Tallest Man on Earth

Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. June 2

Kristian Matsson, a/k/a The Tallest Man on Earth, is one of many young men who drew early comparisons to Bob Dylan. While such parallels are often hyperbolic and lazy, well, the Tallest Man on Earth doesn't exactly shy away from hyperbole. Plus, there's a pinch of truth to it. Like Dylan,... More >>

Town Hall : 8:30 p.m. July 24

West 40s Spoken Word

X

City Winery : 8:00 p.m. August 1; 8:00 p.m. August 2; 8:00 p.m. August 3

Tribeca Music

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 >>

Shakespeare in the Park

Delacorte Theater : 8:00 p.m. daily until July 5; 8:00 p.m. daily from July 23 until August 23

If you're not looking forward to this summer tradition, it must be because you've never been before. The legacy of the Public Theater's free Shakespeare in the Park is well-deserved: Broadway-grade productions, star casts, and a byo food and drink policy all enjoyed under the stars in one of...

East 80s Theater

1349

Saint Vitus Bar : 8:00 p.m. May 31

The last time 1349 were in town, I questioned their headliner status on a formidable bill of ultra-heavy tour mates, but the theatrical exuberance of their performance laid all questions to rest. The Norwegian blackened death metal foursome are surely worthy of leading the charge at Saint Vitus... More >>

Brooklyn Music

Bill Frisell: Up & Down The Mississippi

Jazz at Lincoln Center, Appel Room : 7:30 p.m. May 30

Remember how much fun Bill Frisell had bouncing through Muddy Waters’ “I Can’t Be Satisfied” back on Have a Little Faith? Swag-a-licious. This show is subtitled “Traveling Highway 61,” so you can assume his spin on blues and gospel fosters a similar feel when... More >>

West 50s Music

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 >>

Le Poisson Rouge : 7:30 p.m. August 14

Greenwich Village 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 >>

To Live and Shave in L.A.

Palisades : 8:00 p.m. May 31

Noise pur,bists hell bent on chaos and destruction have been craving the return of genre-shattering art-punk collective To Live And Shave In L.A. since it's alleged final ripper, 2011's The Cortège, was cranked out at Sonic Youth's studio in Hoboken. Now, TLASILA — the brainchild... More >>

Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life

New York Botanical Garden : 10:00 a.m. daily until November 1

Frida Kahlo was famously inspired by the garden at "Casa Azul" in Mexico City, the house where she was born, lived, and died. The artist's ties to nature, and that particular cobalt-walled patch of it, are evident in much of her work. For this reason, the New York Botanical Garden is an ideal... More >>

Bronx Art - Museums

Gabriel Figueroa

El Museo Del Barrio : 11:00 a.m. daily until June 27

Gabriel Figueroa was a prolific cinematographer who worked in both American and Mexican film, lending his singular imagery to the work of such legendary directors as John Huston, Luis Buñuel, and John Ford. He left his mark on over 200 films, and his sweeping, contemplative, often... More >>

Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily until August 23

Jean-Michel Basquiat accomplished much in his brief life. He began by leaving a mark on Lower Manhattan — literally — with his graffiti, before eventually staging exhibits in prestigious galleries throughout the world and befriending the likes of Andy Warhol. Throughout the... More >>

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 >>

World Science Festival

Brooklyn Bridge Park : 12:00 p.m. daily 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

Queens Museum Studio Program Exhibition

Queens Museum of Art : 5:00 p.m. daily until June 28

The Queens Museum is perhaps best known for its massive panorama of the city, but there's a lot more going on, especially since its dramatic renovation in 2013. The institution celebrates its diverse home borough with cutting-edge and international art, and its studio program, which hosts... More >>
