Taking It From the Street

Taking It From the Street

Street Art Street Life, opening Sunday at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, includes “Untitled (Two Boys: Sizzlin’ Chicken),” a 1981 photograph by Jamel Shabazz.


The photographs, videos and other works in “Street Art Street Life: From the 1950s to Now,” opening at the Bronx Museum of Art on Sunday, shows slices of life that are no longer a shutter-click away, writes Holland Cotter: “Shots of everyday people in the 1950s living out their private lives in public, as city dwellers are wont to do; shots of artists in the 1960s and ’70s using the street as a studio, theater and laboratory as artists rarely do anymore, at least in New York.” The museum is doing its part, though; Friday night at 7 p.m., there’s a panel about urban life; Saturday from 2 to 8 p.m. it hosts a B-boy/B-girl competition, and on Sunday noon to 6 p.m. there’s a street fair, complete with D.J.’s and the opportunity to add your image to the urban collage.

Mixing Media


Your alternamusic heroes now double as your indie-movie heroes. Newly minted studio mogul Adam Yauch — a k a MCA of the Beastie Boys — has released “Flow,” a documentary about the impending water crisis that’s “an informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between public health and private interests,” writes Jeannette Catsoulis. Then there’s “Christmas on Mars,” written and directed by Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips (who also stars as a horned alien). “Forget plot,” writes Andy Webster. “It’s all about textures: black-and-white images with psychedelic bursts; dashes of David Lynch, the ’70s midnight movie ‘Dark Star’ and ‘2001’; an echo of ‘The Wizard of Oz’” and, in a riff on maternity, maybe an iota of “The Matrix.”

Reading the Borough


Now in its third year, the Brooklyn Book Festival , taking place on Sunday, has become “a destination for those who arrive via plane rather than subway,” like Patrice Nganang of Cameroon and Linn Ullmann of Norway, writes Monica Drake. Of course there is also plenty of local talent among the 140 authors scheduled to appear, like Simon Rich, Jonathan Franzen and Joseph O’Neill, and some nonbookish topics — the rockers Thurston Moore and Ian McKaye will out-indie each other; A. M. Homes will talk TV with Richard Price; and Marty Markowitz , the borough president, will effuse.

Techno Glamourpuss Alert


Shredding or glittering? For the former, head to the Knitting Factory Friday night, when a slew of guitarists — including Tom Verlaine of Television, Nels Cline of Wilco and J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. — will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the the Fender Jazzmaster guitar. For the latter, head to Radio City, where Goldfrapp, led Allison Goldfrapp (whom Ben Sisario calls “a techno glamourpuss who’s part Marlene Dietrich and part Debbie Harry”) will play “cool, vaguely futuristic electronica.”

Wired for Sound


The future of Astroland may be up in the air, but this weekend, the electronic music scene will be thriving in Coney Island. As part of the first-ever Minitek festival , more than 40 international D.J.’s will spin in a lot there, and in a ballroom in Midtown Manhattan. There will also be interactive art and sound exhibits, and a lot of Euro technoheads. Go prove that N.Y.C. can handle the beat.

Worth a Spin


Whether you’re a longtime LP-lover or one of the growing ranks of newcomers, you owe it to yourself to check out the Superstar DJ Record Fair at the Brooklyn Flea this Sunday. With vinyl from the likes of DJ Rekha and Duane Harriott of Other Music, it’ll complete your collection or give it a brag-worthy boost.
