Weekend Agenda

Events to check out this weekend, October 2-4.


Yoko Ono performs this weekend at the Modern Sky festival  

1. It’s the weekend—let’s drink! And support our local businesses while at it. From Friday through Sunday, Sunset Park’s Industry City is hosting Cheers NY, featuring local and New York State–produced wines and liquor. $50 gets you all you can drink, which seems like a ridiculously good deal.

2. If you’re at Industry City on Sunday for Cheers NY, put the booze to good use with one of the last Mr. Sunday outdoor dance parties. They run through October 17.

3. Also as part of its Sunday Sessions, PS1 invites artists Alicia Hall Moran, Sung Hwan Kim, and David Michael DiGregorio to make tributes to Joan Jonas, on the occasion of the publishing of her new monograph, In the Shadow a Shadow: The Work of Joan Jonas.

4. Have you heard of this new venue National Sawdust? It debuted this week with a bang, with performances by Cibo Matto and the National’s Bryce Dessner. This weekend, swing through for the Terry Riley Festival, honoring the iconic composer, who is also a member of the National Sawdust advisory board.

5. The sky may open up, but if it doesn’t, hit the Modern Sky Festival in Central Park on Saturday, with Yoko Ono headlining. The lineup includes Gang of Four and Chinese bands like noise-pop act Hedgehog and dance-punks New Pants.

6. It’s been a flavorful week, thanks to Puerto Rico Meets NYC. On Sunday, swing by Roberta’s for the closing Lechon Asado Block Party, an all-you-can-eat-and-drink extravaganza, where the rum will be flowing and grub offered includes Lechonera La Piraña's lechon, longaniza sausages from AlCor Foods’ Pedro Alvarez, and ceviche from La Estacion’s Kevin Roth.

7.Over at the Brooklyn Museum, the exhibit The Rise of Sneaker Culture ends this weekend.

8. And if you’re there on Saturday, make sure you check out the performances for the Hispanic Heritage–themed First Saturday, with the museum open until 11 p.m. (it usually closes at 6). Happy weekend!
