Coming Up: “Re-Animator,” Raul Malo, The Onion

Re-Animator screens at 92YTribeca. When I was 15, I thought it was the best movie ever.

“An Evening with The Onion” at 92YTribeca: “Writers and editors from America’s Finest News Source, including Jermaine Alfonso, Joe Garden, Lang Fisher, Seth Reiss, Jason Roeder and Baratunde Thurston, abandon the newspaper and Onion News Network web videos for the evening to perform a mix of stand-up and storytelling.” This Onion “article” from 2007 is funny because it’s true. Check out the slideshow while you’re there.

92YTribeca is hosting a Doomsday Film Festival & Symposium, including screenings of Miracle Mile (Anthony Edwards will be there to talk about it), Last Night (not the recent Keira Knightley film, which would’ve been significantly more engaging if it had been set during the end of the world), Colossus: The Forbin Project, Lifeforce, and Dr. Strangelove. What, no Night of the Comet?

Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre, a modern dance company based in Brooklyn, will present its annual NYC performance season at Tribeca PAC, October 27 through November 5, with two exciting programs each weekend featuring new works and a collaboration with the acclaimed postclassical string quartet Ethel.”

RH Gallery is throwing a Halloween party—costumes may or may not be required—called Beer & Candy II from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. RSVP:

Micah Ganske's "Love Canal: Virgin Galactic Spaceship Two"

Tomorrow Land, Micah Ganske’s first solo exhibition at RH Gallery, features painting and sculpture in which Ganske depicts landscapes of toxic and abandoned areas of the United States blanketed with ominous shadows. […] Alongside his paintings, Ganske will present a series of multiples modeled in a CAD program and then rendered with a Makerbot 3D printer.” Ganske is also curating an exhibit at the gallery: “Collapse draws inspiration from Jared Diamond’s book titled Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed. […] The exhibition will include commissioned work made for the exhibition by Maria Kozak, Colette Robbins, Maximilian Toth and Heeseop Yoon as well as recent works by Diana Al-Hadid, Ian Davis and Erick Swenson.”

“Dominic Chianese (The Godfather: Part II, Uncle Junior on ‘The Sopranos’) is also an accomplished singer with two albums of American and Italian standards to his credit. He talks with author Mark Rotella (Amore: The Story of Italian American Song) about a career that’s taken him from the Bronx to Hollywood and performs some of his favorite Italian songs.” At 92YTribeca.

Raul Malo is playing City Winery. The Mavericks’ version of “Hot Burrito #1″—on which he sang—is one of my very favorite songs.

Christopher Cross is playing City Winery.
