What’s Up This Week

Here are some of the highlights from the calendar for this week (Mon.–Thurs.). Remember: More info on these—and the full calendar—is here.

••• Reality-TV person Whitney Port signs copies of her book, True Whit, at Barnes & Noble Tribeca. (Tuesday)

••• Wednesday through Friday, Arts World Financial Center hosts New Sounds Live: Silent Films/Live Music, in which Alloy Orchestra plays while classic silent films are screened: “Working with an outrageous assemblage of peculiar objects, including their famous ‘rack of junk,’ and electronic synthesizers, Alloy thrashes and grinds soulful music from unlikely sources.” The films star Buster Keaton (left), Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, etc.

••• Hal Ashby’s directorial debut, The Landlord (1970) is at 92YTribeca on Wednesday: “The Landlord manages to be a hilarious comedy, a dramatic look at race relations in America, and a vivid record of a time when Park Slope wasn’t synonymous with coffee shops and baby strollers.” With Beau Bridges, Louis Gossett Jr., and Lee Grant.

••• High Art (1998), by Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are Alright), plays 92YTribeca on Thursday. Starring Ally Sheedy, Radha Mitchell, and Patricia Clarkson.

••• Of course, there’s a bunch of interesting ongoing stuff, too—such as Trista Baldwin’s “American Sexy” at the Flea. It’s “a searing exploration of sexuality in the digital age.” I’m guessing that “searing” means it ends unhappily.
