things to do this weekend, and the next... and the next!

it's never too early to start thinking about this weekend and the next (and so on and so forth), so here it goes!

(1) TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL! but if you're like me, you'll let festival-goers filter out the best, wait until the last weekend and then see the winners. the people who frequent the festival don't tend to scalp tickets at ridiculous prices, so you can just show up and buy some tickets off someone at normal prices at the last moment.

2) [via boingboing and juxtapoz] lori earley art opening at opera gallery new york this saturday, april 28, 6-9pm.

she does this all by hand. oil paintings. no photoshop. check out the precision. my fiancee first alerted me to this artist when i was scrolling around the upcoming jonathan levine gallery shows. she pointed to the lori earley painting. "pretty!" she said. and i concurred with her opinion. and even if you're not into art... FREE BOOZE!

3) the art of shopping presents denim sample sale. see [the art of shopping for more information.]

4) just walk around. it is no longer bone-chilling cold.

addendum: for those of you up in the boston area...

5) Mon - 05/07/07 - Boston, MA - Avalon - Amy Winehouse

i, sadly, work like a crazy person, so i probably won't make the ny show, which is also on a weekday.

6) i'm trying to make the true colors tour somewhere though. maybe i'll drop by boston saturday, june 16th. cyndi lauper, erasure, debbie harry, etc. hosted by margaret cho. OMG!!! (also, PFLAG, HRC and the matthew shepard foundation are involved, so it's all for da gays and shiat.) anyone interested?
