Robert Perišić, Michael Pollan and Edward O. Wilson: it's sort of a grand old (and middle-aged!) man night in New York City.
If I could just point out three of the most excellent of many excellent things on this weekend's events calendar?
• The Splitsider + Tumblr Dog and Pony Show is happening tonight at UCB East.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR. Here are some things to do.
Do you have things to do? Are you lonely? Put down that dumb spreadsheet and go have some fun, with Ben Marcus, Julian Fleisher, and a bunch of comedians and stuff.
It's baseball season! But there is more to life than baseball you know.
Today in New York City: women discuss programming—cultural programming!—at Housing Works, dudes discuss Brecht at the 92Y, Nicole Krauss and André Aciman discuss assimilation and there's nice things to do for kids and for your ears.
Events: Renata Adler reads tonight at the Center for Fiction; the Danielson Famile plays at Knitting Factory; Gilbert Hernandez is at Housing Works.
Tonight in NYC: don't forget to pack your umbrella! Marnie Stern, Douglas Rushkoff, Joe O'Neill and others grace us with their presence.
Our events calendar for this weekend looks like it was written in 1994. The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black? Nick Cave? The Breeders? Robocop? What's not to love! Plus the weather: the weather forecast is "terrific."
Just make this week stop. Whatever you want. Here's my money. Would you like some cats? Sure, take it all.
You could feign interest in one of these events but really, we know what you're doing.
Eggheads will be rewarded tonight by Diller, Scofidio and Renfro at the NYPL, or the big gay meet-up of Andrew Solomon and Tony Kushner at the Strand. And more.
