Riveting Right Now - The CBGB Movie

Film Favorite

The CBGB Movie, directed by Randall Miller and starring Alan Rickman, opens in theaters nationwide on October 11

“Why would you save for your dreams?
Why not live your dreams?”
-Hilly Kristal

Hey! Ho! Let's go ... see CBGB! Director Randall Miller created a riotous punk-rock period piece about the hey day of the grimy rock genre's clubhouse, the notorious CBGB on the Bowery. The sordid story follows the travails of the club's owner, Hilly Kristal (played by a pitch-perfect Alan Rickman), and all of the usual punk suspects show up as characters, too, including the Ramones, Blondie, Iggy Pop and Patti Smith (played by Sting's daughter, Mickey Sumner). The film's so much fun, you'll walk out of the theater with an anarchic snarl on your upper lip. CBGB celebrates it's Hollywood premiere at the ArcLight on October 1, and the soundtrack, featuring Talking Heads, Blondie, the Stooges and many more, lands in stores on CD and as a double LP on October 8.

Riveting Right Now - MoMA

ART SHOW TO KNOW

A retrospective of Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley's works opens at MoMA PS1 on October 13.

“My entrance into the art world was through the counterculture, where it was common practice to lift material from mass culture and ‘pervert’ it to reverse or alter its meaning... Mass culture is scrutinized to discover what is hidden, repressed, within it.”
- Mike Kelley
Artist

Not since its inaugural Rooms exhibition in 1976 has MoMa PS1 curated such a large-scale exhibition, and if anything, this new show is a testament to the importance and heft of Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley. Exploring a wide range of post-punk politics, long-buried memories and notions of transcendence, Kelley worked across virtually every media during a 35-year career marked by irrepressible (and often mordant) wit. The retrospective brings together more than 200 of his works for the first time, and will stand as a makeshift tribute to his brief life. Kelly died in 2012 at age 57.

Podcast Pick

If you try one new podcast this month, download comedy-world darling Julie Klausner's "How Was Your Week. New episodes available every Friday.

“Ms. Klausner’s monologue has a herky-jerky rhythm. She constantly interrupts herself, asking rhetorical questions, aborting thoughts, shifting into digressions. It adds up to a goofy but assured staccato sound that is a nice match for her humor... ”
-New York Times

Compared to Joan Rivers, for whom she’s written jokes, and to Sandra Bernhardt, who’s been a guest on How Was Your Week, Klausner is a tour de force of old school wisecracks and blazingly smart chatty repartee. The insanely addictive conversations on How Was Your Week range from the psychological goings on of Klausner’s cat, Jimmy Jazz, to the pressing problems of pop culture, all the while encompassing the small heartbreaks, daily flubs and momentary thrills of an ordinary week, as filtered through Klausner’s riproaring mind. Rumor has it, the October 30 edition will feature a “gigantic musical surprise.”
