Along with today's Get To It, reader, we have a surprise for you: a new banner! It's nuthin' fancy, but we are taking baby steps here at virtual Listopad in an effort to spice things up in 2009. (Insert "change we can believe in" jokes/puns/etc.) Enjoy!
Richard Colman, Two Other Eyes
Wednesday! Farrar, Straus and Giroux senior editor Lorin Stein leads a discussion of Roberto Bolano's 2666 at Politics and Prose. Or! A series from Art in the Twenty-First Century (the episode "Place") screens at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Friday, you could go to Trinidad and Tobago Association and have your mind blown by Nadastrom. Or you could go to the Black Cat for the Prince vs. Madonna vs. Michael Jackson dance-off (or Party Lights, the free Backstage affair). Or you could fly to Sundance for the premiere of The September Issue. (Ok, this last one is not a local event - but raise your hand if you are waiting with some seriously bated breath to see this movie. That's what I thought.)
Saturday is your last chance to see "Aspect Ratio" before it closes at Irvine Contemporary. Do not sleep on this cool little show featuring the works of Listopad stalkees (and DC homegrowns) Iona Rozeal Brown and Richard Colman, among others.
