Your perfect Friday: Lou Reed, the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show and the Antlers
Fri Feb 5 2010
Your perfect Friday is a big Lou Reed fan, so it'll be heading to see the feisty Fireworks Ensemble perform his 75-minute wall-of-sound distortion onslaught Metal Machine Music. To complete a day of experimental art, pick something up from the Outsider Art Fair to establish your outr credentials, and select a period-specific garment from the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show.
Alternately, just party down at the Bronx Museum's free Looking for the Perfect Beat: A Tribute to J Dilla, or at the last of the Guggenheim's Art After Dark series with electrofunk by Chromeo. Or screw the museums and go to the BAM Opera House to see Ra Ra Riot + The Antlers performing in the Sounds Like Brooklyn music festival. It's such a perfect Friday.
