Seen & Heard: Michael Stipe, Curator

••• Brick NYC, which was closed by the Department of Health, says it expects to reopen tonight. Update: It didn’t. The sign in the window says it’s “closed for emergency repairs.”

••• Marla Mase (read her TCQ&A here) will be performing at Cin-M-Art Space at 10 p.m. this Friday.: “It’s in the hood, it’s dark and dirty, and  the band is killin.’ I’ll be performing songs from my rock opera, A Brief Night Out, and my soon to be released CD, Speak. Plus who knows what else I might do.”

••• A reader writes in: “I was wondering if you knew of any restaurants/markets, etc. that offer Passover catering?” I don’t. Do you? Please answer in the comments.

••• From the Clocktower gallery: “The Clocktower and present Collapse Into Now Film Project, an exhibition of music and film organized in collaboration with R.E.M. and Warner Bros.
