If the idea of getting paid to usher around the likes of Kevin Spacey, St. Vincent and the This American Life crew seems up your alley, then this is the job for you. BAM is looking to hire an artist services representative, which is the person who is responsible for interacting with artists, anticipating their needs, arranging hospitality, being the on-site contact, and otherwise being the gopher/bitch for famous performers. But we bet the kind of famous people they get at BAM are actually pretty nice, like that above list of recent performers (this isn’t Terminal 5 after all). (more…)
1. Check out posters for shows you never went to. Don’t worry, it’s art. (Friday)
2. 5th Avenue is full of music, and for once, it’s not because you’re having auditory hallucinations (Friday)
3. Pass Kontrol comes to South Brooklyn! You guys! They’re so good! And the other bands are too I bet. (Friday)
4. You’re already described as dazed and confused by your friends on the regular, so go drink under the moontower. (Friday)
5. Roberta’s is selling plants from their garden. Just another reason to go to Bushwick and then bitch about how far it is (Saturday)
6. Teach yourself to fish and you can eat
for a lifetime through the apocalypse (Saturday)
8. Yo yo, who the boss when it comes to these songs? Ghostface (Saturday)
9. Has anyone ever heard of this “Mermaid Parade“? (Saturday)
10. Get thee to a kayakery! (Saturday and Sunday)
11. A bike tour where you get educated AND you eat tacos. WHAAAAT? I freakin’ love this city (Sunday)
12. If you’ve always wanted to be Mrs. Ira Glass, here’s your chance to impress him with your charitable disposition. Oh, and help people. That too. (Sunday)
13. You’ve laughed at Hannibal Buress for free at the Knitting Factory, now laugh at him in Red Hook (Sunday)
Don’t take my word for it though (actually do), go check out the Brooklyn Events calendar. Got an event of your own? Well, list it there! It’s free!
This Sunday, the NY Writers Coalition is hosting its seventh annual Write-a-Thon at the Mark Morris Dance Center. The event is called “Write Your A** Off” and it works like this: You raise $150 and then you get to go to workshops with these people. The money you raise goes to support the coalition’s free creative writing programs for inmates, formerly homeless, substance abusers and other marginalized literary talents. (more…)
