Here are just a few of the highlights on tap this week. More info on these—and the full slate—is in the Tribeca calendar of events.
Corey Taylor (right), the lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, promotes The Seven Deadly Sins—”a candid, outrageous manifesto reflecting on the subject and nature of sin” at Barnes & Noble Tribeca. ••• Short animated films by the Seattle Experimental Animation Team at 92YTribeca. ••• Aaron Neville at City Winery.
The Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra plays for free behind City Winery for the Hudson Square Music & Wine Festival. ••• Rebirth, a film about 9/11 survivors, screens at Pace. ••• Marc Cohn is back at City Winery (also Thursday). ••• Ben Williams Sound Effect is at 92YTribeca; with Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra.
Woody Allen’s Radio Days screens at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. I recently rewatched it, and it really held up. The Woody Allen comedies without Woody acting tend to be much better, no? (Although he does narrate Radio Days.) ••• Jonathan Caouette’s Tarnation (2004)—a different sort of look back, for sure—is at 92YTribeca: “It was a deeply moving, passionate account that encapsulated growing up with a mentally ill mother, coming out of the closet and moving to New York. But it was also an extraordinary technical feat as a collage of home movies assembled on iMovie that delivered a greater emotional impact than movies produced for millions of dollars more.” ••• The Preservation Hall Jazz Band play at City Winery; with Del McCoury. ••• Kirsten Holly Smith (above) channels Dusty Springfield at Duane Park restaurant.
Folk singer Ana Egge plays free at the WFC plaza for the River to River Festival. ••• Astrograss plays Washington Market Park, for the kids. ••• “Mortified,” comedy about embarrassment, at 92YTribeca. ••• The Muppets Take Manhattan sing-along at 92YTribeca. Hey, here’s an idea: The Muppets Tackle Sondheim.
Marcy Playground, best known for “Sex and Candy,” at City Winery.
At the Tribeca Greenmarket, it’s “family and dog portrait day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come have your picture taken of you, your family or your 4-legged friend in front of a summer market spread. Dressing up is encouraged.” I’m so annoyed that I’ll be out of town! ••• Dave Mason at City Winery (also Sunday). ••• The Sweets Shop at Duane Park restaurant.
New Amsterdam Market and Fulton Stall Market. ••• Point Break, the 1991 film with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, screens for free at the Tribeca Grand, along with the TV show “True Blood.” I believe the hotel is also screening “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but you might want to check first.
As for ongoing events, you might consider…
The Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival is at Tribeca Cinemas July 20–23. (I just realized that in a recent newsletter I referred to it as the Kicking + Screaming festival—shows how I feel about soccer.) Here’s a clip from Argentina Fútbol Club, one of the films on the menu.
