Weekend Agenda

Events to check out this weekend, November 14–16.


Ryan Adams will not be wearing his sunglasses in Carnegie Hall.  

1. It's gonna get a little chilly this weekend, so no better time to catch a play, like the thoughtful revival of Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing, with Maggie Gyllenhaal and Ewan McGregor.

2. Or snuggle up to some art. The Renegade Craft Fair offers go-getters a jump on their holiday shopping ...

3. While Independent Projects, the smaller cousin of the edgy independent art fair, wraps up ten days this weekend. Our critic Jerry Saltz chooses some of his favorite pieces here.

4. If you want to hear people talk about art, curator Hans Ulrich Obrist discusses the history and theory of his profession in his book Ways of Curating, and on Sunday at McNally Jackson, with special guest Marina Abramovic.

5. Or if you'd rather hear them talk about other things, musician and crowd-funder Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls) discusses her book The Art of Asking on Friday at Barnes and Noble in Union Square. She's asking that you attend. Get it?

6. Speaking of musicians, Ryan Adams has a few big shows coming up, playing this Saturday and Monday the 17th at Carnegie Hall, and next weekend at Hammerstein Ballroom. Hope he practiced!

7. Or try something smaller but no less powerful with Tei Shi, the Brooklyn-based Valerie Teicher, whose melodic dream-pop is melancholic and shimmery. She plays on Saturday at Baby's All Right.

8. Get your laughs with The League's Steve Rannazzisi at Carolines.

9. Or see some dance, with the BAM-commissioned evening-length Oxbow, by Brooklyn choreographer Ivy Baldwin.

10. Some people might be comforted in the cold by a marathon reading of Moby-Dick, happening this weekend, spanning three days and three locations.

11. While others (including us) would be happy eating comforting foods. Here are 22 new options to warm you from the inside out. Happy weekend!
