• Spring gala for the Kitchen. Puck Building, 295 Lafayette St., nr. Houston St., 6 p.m. Laurie Anderson will be honored, and guests will include her omnipresent beau, Lou Reed, along with the rest of the Underground Socialites: David Bowie, David Byrne, Julian Schnabel et al. Truly, no group in the world knows more about obscure garage bands and high-end hors d’oeuvre than Reed, Bowie, and Byrne.
• Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee New York premiere. Museum of Natural History, Central Park W. and 79th St., 7 p.m. Stars Anna Paquin, Aidan Quinn, and Adam Beach will be around for the screening and subsequent buffet (really!). Upper West Siders upset about missing tonight’s Adam Beach sighting, take heart: He’s joining the cast of Law & Order: SVU next year and will be seen walking purposefully in and out of many a brownstone in the coming months.
