3/19: Air, J.D. Salinger Unfolded…

…and a gala of “wonderland”-inspired art and performance



    3/19: Air, J.D. Salinger Unfolded…

    SURFACE TO…: Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel—a.k.a. French electro-pop duo Air--return to NYC (and, more metaphorically, to the music scene, after sort of skulking around for a while penning the odd piece for Sofia Coppola movies) with a tour riding on the release of 2009’s atmospheric “Love 2” at Terminal 5.8PM.

    EPHEMERA: On Tuesday, something quietly momentous happened in the literary world: Ten letters from J.D. Salinger, which had heretofore been kept from the public due to the author’s near-fanatical privacy, went on display at the Morgan Library & Museum. The Morgan stays open until 9PM on Fridays, and you know you want to peer inside his psyche. 

    DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE: Things we’re looking forward to at the Dances of Vice Wonderland in Spring Ball: the 24-piece avant-garde chamber-rock sounds of This Ambitious Orchestra, fairy-tale fashion shows reimagining the world Lewis Carroll created in his “Alice” books, and more. Galapagos, 11PM.
