What’s Going On Saturday?
Written by Bwog Staff
John Zorn Improv Night—A Stone Benefit
John Zorn (sax), Ikue Mori (electronics), Ned Rothenberg (sax), Shanir Blumenkranz (bass), Theo Bleckman (voice) and many special guests join forces to raise some funds to protect this home of the avant-garde. Don’t let the Stone become the next Tonic.
The Stone, Avenue C at E 2nd street, Sets begin at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. $20.
This fall’s Postcrypt Coffeehouse series kicks off tonight and continues through tomorrow. Tonight, you can check out Dorie Colangelo, Inger Hansen, and Jake Hill. Tomorrow night’s performances include David Austerweil, Lola Johnson, and the Jerome Ellis Quartet. Bwog probably wouldn’t pay to see any of these acts, but, hey, that’s why it’s free!
Basement of St. Paul’s Chapel, 9 p.m. Free.
Cut & Paste Digital Design Tournament
Eight graphic design experts compete to see who can best visually interpret a theme in a 15-minute round. The best part? Each computer screen is projected so the audience can follow the creation from start to finish. The event–presented by Cut & Paste–will feature MC Ove and DJ sets from Kid Robot’s Chad Phillips.
(Note: The after party is at Home Sweet Home, 131 Chrystie St.)
Angel Orensanz Foundation, 172 Norfolk St., (212) 529-7194, 8-11 p.m., $15/$10 advance.
Simian Mobile Disco + JDH & Dave P + The Mood (DJ Sets)
Catch your favorite British dance group that’s not the Klaxons DJ a late night set at Highline Ballroom. Sure, it’s not a real Simian Mobile Disco concert (that’s going on earlier in the evening) but real concerts cost money (this one’s free with rsvp).
Highline Ballroom, 431 W. 16th St., 11 p.m. Free (rsvp here). 21+.
