You Love a Parade

Hiroko Masuike for The New York Times

The Dazzle Dancers at last year’s Art Parade.

 

Creativity goes on the march tomorrow when the Art Parade hits SoHo. Check out floats and installations from gallery luminaries like Assume Vivid Astro Focus, plus guerrilla dance teams and people re-creating the “Twist and Shout” parade scene from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” On Sunday, head to the Deitch space in Long Island City where Swoon’s seven-vessel art flotilla, the “Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea,” will dock at sunset. If you ask nicely (or make a donation) you might even get a tour.

Radio Days

 

Even if you’ve never listened to it, you’ve probably walked past East Village Radio, which broadcasts from a storefront booth on Second Avenue. Tomorrow, the Internet-only station celebrates its fifth anniversary with a music festival that has “a delightfully international twist,” writes Amanda Petrusich. Among the performers: the experimental Japanese band Boris, the Icelandic singer-songwriter Olof Arnalds, the producer and party boy Mark Ronson, and Brooklyn bands like High PlacesAwesome Color and Vivian GirlsKRS-One will M.C. and John Oliver will funny it up.

PERFORMANCE

Send ‘Em In

 

Prepare for whatever shenanigans you’ll encounter at the Art Parade tomorrow by hitting the Clown Parade today. Part of the third annualClown Theater Festival, it starts at Union Square, where organizers will pass out 400 clown noses. Led by a marching band and some majorettes, the whole red-schnozzed troupe will L train it to the Brick Theater in Williamsburg, where there will be a night of free performances — after amass pie fight. Hello, this is why we live in New York.

The Game of Life

 

For all the God-like powers that video games have bestowed upon us — from slaying armies to pretending to be rock stars — it wasn’t until now that players could actually build life. Spore, designed by Will Wright of Sim City fame, is based on evolution: you start with microbes and customize on up. Seth Schiesel declares it “probably the coolest, most interesting toy I have ever experienced.” Go create your universe.

DAY PARTIES, NIGHTLIFE

Up on the Roof

 

Summer is officially over, at least as far as the Warm-Up at PS 1 and theBeach Parties at the Water Taxi Beach are concerned. Both close out their season tomorrow; there will be live performances, D.J.’s and green leafy things at the former and the Canadian D.J. duo Junior Boys and sand at the latter. But when one party ends, another begins — and through September 13th, Mini, the car company, has sponsored a rooftop spacein Midtown. Check the Web site for details on events like fashion photography workshops with Vogue photographers, yoga and Pilates classes and fashion week after-parties.
