What’s Up This Week

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

••• Possibly my favorite band ever, Cowboy Junkies, plays City Winery on Monday and Tuesday. They were never much of a video band, but I put “Misguided Angel” above because I can’t understand why some young country singer hasn’t covered it and made a gazillion dollars.

••• Jennifer Homans, author of Angels: A History of Ballet, speaks at 92YTribeca. (Wednesday)

••• “Put Up or Shut Up” opens at the New York Academy of Art. It’s an exhibit of “work by outstanding faculty currently teaching in the best M.F.A. programs in the greater New York City area.” (Wednesday)

••• Flirting With Disaster (1996)—directed by David O. Russell, who directed this year’s The Fighter—is at 92YTribeca on Wednesday. Sometimes I wonder why I don’t just drop everything and write Téa Leoni the movie she deserves.

••• On Thursday, Sun Come Up—an Oscar nominee for Best Documentary (Short Subject)—screens at 92YTribeca: “Sun Come Up follows the relocation of some of the world’s first climate change refugees, the Carteret Islanders—a community living on a remote island chain in the South Pacific Ocean. After the screening, director/producer Jennifer Redfearn will be joined by Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig, Senior Research Scientist at NASA and co-chair of the New York City Panel on Climate Change.”

••• As for ongoing stuff, you might consider “Orange Sky” and “The Salon,” concurrent exhibits at RH Gallery. Not quite sure whose art this is—RH Gallery’s website seems to be fritzy, or maybe it’s me—but you can probably guess which show it’s from.
