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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Kehinde Wiley

Brooklyn Museum : 11:00 a.m. daily until May 24

Kehinde Wiley, only 38 years old but with a career spanning 14 years, already has his own retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, and rightly so. The works in Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic feature young black subjects in poses associated with historical paintings. In Napoleon Leading the Army... 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 >>

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

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

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 >>

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


Music Hall of Williamsburg : 9:00 p.m. May 27

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 >>

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 >>

Ice Cream Social Run

Roosevelt Island : 7:30 p.m. May 25

It's Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, and what better way to celebrate than in the sun, running around New York's wonderfully weird Roosevelt Island? The Memorial Day Ice Cream Social 5K and 10K Races mark the beginning of NYCRuns' 2015 season. Awards will be given to the top three... More >>

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 >>

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 >>

Aram Bajakian Residency

The Stone : 8:00 p.m. May 23; 8:00 p.m. May 24

The company Queens-based guitar shredder Aram Bajakian has kept is eye-popping, and like Marc Ribot, he's a virtuosic jack-of-all-trades. Some highlights from his deep résumé: Bajakian wailed for the late and legendary Lou Reed on his final tours, served as go-to ax-man for... 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 >>

Oh Land

Bowery Ballroom : 9:00 p.m. May 25

Known by her stage name Oh Land, Danish songstress Nanna Øland Fabricius started her performance career as a ballet dancer before shifting gears to a solo recording artist. As Oh Land, she made her mark on the States with indelible indie pop hits like "White Lies" and "Son of a Gun,"... More >>

Geen Ween Does Billy Joel

Brooklyn Bowl : 9:00 p.m. May 28; 8:00 p.m. May 31

After quitting Ween in 2012, Gene Ween reassumed his given name, Aaron Freeman, for a brilliant Rod McKuen covers project and a pretty swell solo album. But he's Gene Ween again, at least for this evening-length tribute to the music of Billy Joel. Accompanied ably by Paul Green and the School... More >>

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 >>

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

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, self-promotion, and performance in the creative acts of the self-taught. The efforts are wonderfully odd. In homage to a sea goddess, Raimundo Borges Falcão roller-skates in elaborate outfits assembled from trash. Spiritually guided,... 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 >>

BAM Rose Cinemas : 7:00 p.m. daily until May 25

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

Tonight's gala celebrates Ellen Robbins, whose classes for kids have launched generations of... More >>

Chicano Batman

Brooklyn Bowl : 8:00 p.m. May 24

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 >>
