Guide To The Weekend (Returns)

Written by


Pardon the temporary hiatus — but if finals and papers are killing you as much as they’re killing us, perhaps it’s time for a break anyway
.





TONIGHT



Goddard’s 60s begins at Film Forum! (209 W Houston St., 212-727-8110). With fashion designer Agnes B. introducing “Breathless” today. Film runs all weekend, event runs through June 5. ($11; see site for show times)



The Hold Steady at Webster Hall (125 E 11th St.) The Brooklyn-based band plays as the main act as part of the Tribeca Film Festival Breaking the Band showcase, with The Virgins, Republic Tigers, and Bad Veins. ($15, 6:30 PM)



Bobby McFerrin Young Artists Concert @ Carnegie Hall, Zankel stage (57th & 7th Ave., 212-247-7800). “After a five-day Professional Training Workshop, McFerrin and participants specializing in a variety of singing traditions will create Instant Opera—an improvised, a cappella work based on the story of the Tower of Babel. This work explores the origins of language while celebrating cultural differences.” ($10 Students, 7:30 PM)



The 114th Annual Varsity Show @ Roone Arledge Auditorium (on-campus). Self-explanatory, but in case it isn’t: a culmination of all the year’s campus jokes rolled into one big musical shebang. ($5/$10/$20 CUID at CUArts TIC, 8PM)



The Kings Crown Shakespeare Troupe presents As You Like It @ Low Plaza (on-campus). See a traveling production by Columbia’s own KCST only steps away from your building! Just be prepared in case of any strange weather patterns. (FREE, 11:59PM)





SATURDAY



Sakura Matsuri: Cherry Blossom Festival @ Brooklyn Botanic Gardens (1000 Washington Ave., Bklyn). For those who enjoy cherry trees and Japanese culture (including, according to the website, “some of the country’s hippest DJ’s spinning Japanese pop sounds”). ($4 Student garden admission, 10AM-6PM)



Drums Along the Hudson: A Native American Festival & Shad Fest @ Inwood Hill Park (218th & Indian Rd.) An event that will feature native food, crafts, art, plank-cooking demonstrations and tastings, and “native drumming from around the world, intertribal social dances like the Round Dance, the Iroquois Smoke Dance, and the Jingle Dance.” What is a Jingle Dance? Bwog does not know, but assumes you should go if you’d like to find out. (FREE, 11AM-3PM)



Cinco de Mayo Festival @ Low Plaza (on-campus). Not quite May 5th and we doubt there will be Corona — not on the college walk, anyway — but the Chicano Caucus is hosting an event with dance troupes, mariachi music, and a TACO truck. (FREE, 1PM-5PM)



The Kings Crown Shakespeare Troupe presents As You Like It @ Low Plaza (on-campus). See Friday. (FREE, 8PM)



The 114th Annual Varsity Show  @ Roone Arledge Auditorium (on-campus). See Friday. ($5/$10/$20 CUID at CUArts TIC, 8PM)



Rejection Letter Party @The Ontological Theater at St. Mark’s Church (131 E 10th St.). Didn’t get into grad school? Denied by that internship you were hoping for? This might be the (hopefully not-too-depressing) party for you! The Ontological Society is hosting a benefit party for summer “in response to the specific community the Ontological Incubator serves: burgeoning young artists who frequently struggle with rejection…This is a chance for the community to come together and share in the universal experience of rejection, and in doing so, remove some of the power individual rejections hold.” ($15, $10 w/letter, 9PM)





SUNDAY



Sakura Matsuri: Cherry Blossom Festival @ Brooklyn Botanic Gardens (1000 Washington Ave., Bklyn). See Saturday. ($4 Student garden admission, 10AM-6PM)



Yefim Bronfman and Friends @ Carnegie Hall, Perelman stage (57th & 7th Ave., 212-247-7800). An all-star performance featuring Bronfman (piano), Gil Shaham (violin), Lynn Harrell (cello) and the Emerson String quartet. Featuring works by Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, and world premieres by Marc-André Dalbavie and Jörg Widmann. ($10 Students, 2PM)



The 114th Annual Varsity Show  @ Roone Arledge Auditorium (on-campus). See Friday. ($5/$10/$20 CUID at CUArts TIC, 3PM & 8PM)
