Mark Morris Dance Group

Howard Gilman Opera House : 3:00 p.m. April 26

It's a flying leap from Mark Morris's headquarters to BAM's main stage, where he offers two programs surveying his choreography since 1993. His bluff, expressive modern dancers perform every piece to live music, ranging on Program A from the sophisticated tonalities of Lou Harrison, for Pacific... More >>

Bruce LaBruce

MOMA, Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters : 7:00 p.m. daily until May 2

It takes only a passing glance at the premise of a few Bruce LaBruce films to understand why his work is met with controversy all over the world. L.A. Zombie (2010) follows an alien, possibly schizophrenic zombie who brings people back to life through intercourse, while Skin Flick (1999)... More >>

Emily Johnson/Catalyst

New York Live Arts : 7:30 p.m. daily until April 26

One of the odder phenoms in the dance world is Bessie­-winning Emily Johnson, whose Shore brings to Lenape-hoking (a/k/a New York City) a multi-­day performance installation of dance, story, volunteerism, and feasting that promises to blur "distinctions between performance and daily... More >>

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 >>

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 >>

Jamal Jackson Dance Company

Actors Fund Arts Center : 8:00 p.m. daily until April 26

Hard to believe, but it's been 20 years since the media maelstrom surrounding the murder trial of O.J. Simpson. The Brooklyn-based Jamal Jackson Dance Company, whose mission is as much educational as aesthetic, revisits the case, taking on that "five-ring circus encompassing issues of race,... More >>

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 >>

When the Curtain Never Comes Down

American Folk Art Museum : 12:00 p.m. daily until July 5

This fresh collection of outsider art explores ritual, self­promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self­taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd. In homage to a sea goddess, Raimundo Borges Falcão roller­skates in elaborate outfits assembled from trash.... More >>

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 >>

New York City Ballet

David H. Koch Theater : 7:30 p.m. daily from April 28 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 >>

Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm

The Drawing Center : 12:00 p.m. every Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

Admired for her expressionist paintings of macabre sexual fantasy, Natalie Frank takes her taste for taboo to folktales — not Disney's versions, but the unsettling originals popularized in the nineteenth century by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Frank's pastel drawings, reminiscent of Chagall,... More >>

Benjamin Clementine

BRIC : 8:00 p.m. April 29

Born in London to Ghanaian parents, Clementine was discovered busking in the Paris Metro. After two EPs and a new album, At Least for Now, Clementine is on track to become a major purveyor of the sort of proudly despairing poetics associated with Nina Simone and Edith Piaf, with a bit of Antony...

The Great American Pin-Up Returns: The AK Collection

Louis K. Meisel Gallery : 10:00 a.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 2

The pin-up girl originated in the 1930s, accompanied soldiers to war in the 1940s, mirrored the rampant consumerism of the 1950s, and was eventually reduced to a bit of kitschy fun in the 1960s. The pin-up straddles that line between commercial culture and softcore porn, but in The Great... 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 >>

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


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 >>

Funny Girls: TV Boomer Babes Tell All

Queens College, LeFrak Concert Hall : 3:00 p.m. April 26

With Tina Fey expanding her oeuvre to the Netflix realm to give us the gift of Kimmy Schmidt, and Jenji Kohan named one of Time's most influential people for her ability to make incredibly dark subject matter funny on Orange Is the New Black, it's becoming increasingly easy to forget that...

Trenton Doyle Hancock

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

Hancock's self­portrait — a demonic figure with giant tube­shaped 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 long­running mythological... More >>

Celeste Sloman and Vangeline Theater

Howl! Happening : 7:00 p.m. daily from April 29 until May 2

Butoh is a deceptively slow-moving dance. While its performers move gradually, it's with great intention. The audience never gets close enough to experience the trance-like state dancers evoke in order to alter reality and tell a story, until tonight. Très Mort–Tremor combines live... More >>

East Village Dance


Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. May 5

A marvelous mashup that consistently transcends its source material, guitarist Jon Madof's 2013 Tzadik Records debut combined Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's ecstatic Jewish music with Fela Kuti's swaggering Afrobeat sound. He followed it up last year with Adramelech: Book of Angels 22, which applies... More >>

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