Arts & Culture
Sunday, January 20th – This weekend marks the opening solo exhibitions of Cyprien Gaillard, Ed Atkins, Metahaven and Jeff Elrod at the Museum of Modern Art. The museum’s current exhibitions (Now Dig This!, Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt, and Huma Bhabha) will be open as well! (MoMa)
Sunday, January 20th – It’s true Hockey is finally back! The lockout is over and your New York Rangers return to action at Madison Square Garden this Sunday taking on the perfectly matched Boston Bruins. Even if you’re not a diehard fan there is plenty of beer and fighting to wet your whistle! (New York Rangers)
Music & Entertainment
Friday, January 11th – Movie release day. Quiet night tonight? Check out the films opening this weekend. The muscles from Brussels returns! That’s right, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in “The Last Stand” (R). Arnie plays an aging sheriff whose town is being overrun by a drug cartel. Good thing he has his wacky sidekick Johnny Knoxville to help him out! One a more serious film tip, Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe go head to head in “Broken City” (R). The story tells the classic tale of an ex-cop seeking revenge on a powerful city figure after being double-crossed. Either way, we will see you at the movies!
Friday, January 18th – The hardcore masked men of Hollywood Undead will takeover the ever popular Gramercy Theatre. The disguised dudes from the West Coast will rip through tracks from their much talked about new album “Notes from the Underground” and a ton more. There may be zero tickets left so don’t get caught out in the cold. (Gramercy Theatre)
Friday, January 18th – For the last decade Marquee has been one of the most popular clubs in town. It may have been gone for awhile but it’s back this very weekend. Celebrate it’s return in bold fashion with Dubfire with Sleepy & Boo tonight! (Marquee)
Saturday, January 19th – Webster Hall is best known for it’s long history as one of the city’s landmark club venues for both dancing and rocking out.
