Events & things

* Last night, King Kong Radio Theater in the West Village. This awesome, original play ends July 8th. Basically it's the story of King Kong done Radio Theater style with sound effects and the players acting multiple roles. Harkens back to times when you actually had to use your imagination.

* Tonight: Richard Hell and Christopher Wool at the Strand. "Richard Hell is a musician known for his image and his facility with words; Christopher Wool is a painter who first became famous for his words. The two are friends and they have collaborated on the creation of a series of gorgeous word images. These provocative, funny pictures comprise the content of their beautifully designed and printed new book, Psychopts. Barry Schwabsky, a poet and a frequent writer on art for The Nation and co-editor of Artforum's international review section, will moderate a discussion with the artists."

* Just announced: Sigur Ros will do two more shows here in NYC in September at the beautiful United Palace Theatre. AKA angels sing beneath gilded lights. I'm going. Are you?
