Weekend Agenda

Events to check out this weekend, March 36.

Champagne Jerry (middle) with friends Ad-Rock and Bridget Everett.   

1. Kick off the weekend dancing Thursday night at I Love Vinyl’s free monthly residency at the Panther Room, with residents DJ Scribe, Amir Abdullah, Jon Oliver, Op!, and Shawn Dub.

2. Or hit up some cool-sounding kids’ events (with a kid, of course). Industry City on Saturday is having a cinema club for kids. Alongside a screening of Shaun the Sheep, the schedule features tastings from local vendors, face art, and a craft workshop.

3. While in Bryant Park on Saturday and Sunday, a Kids Food Fest will help fight childhood obesity. Learn about eating healthily while sampling foods and doing fun activities like cooking classes, a scavenger hunt, and more.

4.At New York Live through Saturday is a residency by hip-hop sensation Champagne Jerry, the alter-ego of performance artist Neil Medlyn. His rotating cast of misfits include Bridget Everett, Adam Horovitz, Murray Hill, and Carmine Covelli in support of his new album Champagne Jerry: The Champagne Room, out March 6.

5. On Saturday and Sunday, all-women contemporary-dance company Michiyaya presents Project V, exploring the range of human touch and how it affects self-identity.

6. It’s a big week for art, with the Armory show and its satellites taking over the city. Check out our guide to the shows.

7. Or if you’d rather focus on one artist, try the Edward Munch exhibit at Neue Galerie. This Friday evening, it’s free, which is sure to be a scream (sorry).

8. Or just stand on a street and check out a wall. Aby Rosen’s new hotel 11 Howard in Soho is teaming up with Jeff Koons as a mentor and commissioned a group of youth artists to create a mural on the south-facing wall. The hotel might not be cheap to stay in, but the art is free.

9. In theatrical news, Neil Brennan, best known as the co-creator of Chappelle’s Show, does his one-man show Three Mics at the Lynn Redgrave Theater. It’ll make you laugh, but it might also make you cry. We’re not kidding.

10. While the delightful Sense and Sensibility by Bedlam will charm. (You probably won’t cry at this one, but you never know.)

11. However, if it’s a more serious film you’re after, Colliding Dreams, which examines the question of Zionism and the Israel-Palestinian conflict, opens on Friday at Lincoln Center Cinemas, with talks with the filmmakers through Sunday. Happy weekend!
