Weekend Agenda

Events to check out this weekend, April 35.


Chet Faker has all the emotions.   

1. Opening on Thursday, April 2, at the National Arts Club, photographer Michael Halsband's "Halsband Portraits" includes his famous photo of Andy Warhol and Basquiat in boxing gloves. Admission is free and open to the public daily.

2. Speaking of that portrait, this weekend also marks the opening of "Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks" at the Brooklyn Museum.

3. Celebrate Easter traditionally with the parade on Sunday, or "alternatively" at the "insane Easter carnival" Full Bunny Contact with D.J.'s and games like Shoot the Peep. If neither of these events appeal to you, you could also just eat some adorable candy.

4. Or, if you're looking for a Passover Seder, we've got a few cool options to choose from, including one hosted by Laurie Anderson.

5. This Saturday the Wordless Music Series presents Birdman, with Antonio Sanchez performing his own solo percussion score live.

6. Or see the free film program "Laurel or Hardy: Leading to the Teaming" at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, which features silent films that Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy acted in separately before they became a team, including Just Rambling Along, and Should Men Walk Home, with live piano accompaniment by Ben Model.

7. Comedy-wise, see comics take to the therapy couch in Relationshit at the Tank, or wax nostalgic with the Soundtrack Series at QED, both on Saturday.

8. Those who want to rock can check out Perfect Pussy on Friday and Saturday at Baby's All Right. If you feel more soulful, the Aussie Chet Faker plays his first of three dates at Terminal 5 on Saturday.

9. Eat well and be fancy when Von Kava, Smorgasburg’s first white-tablecloth stand-up tasting-menu table, makes its debut.

10. Or drool over pretty things that go vroom at the New York International Auto Show, at the Javits Center from April 3 to 12. Happy weekend!
