Scarlett Johansson in Scoop
Tonight: Friday 7.28.
It’s hot and it’s probably going to rain. We’re going to check out the new Woody Allen film, Scoop. The reviews are mixed but the film stars Scarlett Johansson, so it can’t be all bad.
On Saturday July 29 [from flavorpill]:
Warm Up feat. the Juan Maclean w/ Adam X, Jeffrey Sfire, and the Rogers Sisters
where: P.S.1 (22-25 Jackson Ave, LIC, 718.784.2084)
New York represents well today with freak-disco DFA kings the Juan Maclean, bangin’ techno avatar Adam X, Ghostly (mostly) minimalist Jeffrey Sfire, and — kicking things off — indie-rock trio the Rogers Sisters. More info here.
Head to Water Taxi Beach for ReBound, the official Warm Up afterparty.
also on Saturday, head up to the Catskills:
free103point9 presents Spectral Garden feat. Matthew Burtner, Nicolas Collins, and Scanner
where: free103point9 Wave Farm (5662 Rt 23, Acra, 518.622.2598)
The free103point9 Wave Farm is a touchy-feely place, but it can be a damn good break to take from NYC’s pavement-boiling summer malaise (and even the saltiest city crank would be hard-pressed to resist their well-strung hammocks). As a part of their summer event series, the nonprofit arts organization invites three sound artists to put their grant money where their MIDI controllers are for an afternoon in the meadow, testing out big words and vague phrases like “ecoacoustics” and “the experimental terrain between sound, space, image, and form.” Matthew Burtner’s noise-based Studies for Radio Transceiver explores the nature of radio, while Nicolas Collins and the British sound artist Scanner work with cell phone conversations and broken broadcasts — appropriately, metropolis in decay.

And on Sunday, a free show at McCarren Park featuring:
The show begins at 2pm and ends at 8pm. Don’t miss the wildly underated Of Montreal. They are fantastic live!
