OLD GUARD: Ween live are a special thing, and word has it the rockers have been playing particularly energetic shows this summer, packed with deep cuts from their entire career span and treats galore (like a cover of Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”). Plus, if you haven’t taken in any Summerstage shows at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, this is your chance. 6:30PM.
LANDMARK: These days, a shot-reaction shot sequence is used in everything from Despicable Me to Wendy’s commercials. But in 1925, when Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin came out, he was testing this fun new idea: using editing to elicit emotion. Needless to say, you should see the film not just for its groundbreaking status, but also because it’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Writer Alex Galper intros the film at the Rubin Museum, 9:30PM.
‘LAND’ HO: Head to Littlefield in Gowanus tonight to catch Oh Land, a.k.a. Danish musical force Nanna Oland Fabricius, purveyor of lush, fresh, disjointed electro soundscapes you’ll set to repeat almost immediately (hear some here). Her self-titled EP drops in October on Epic as she readies her US debut for next year.8PM, preceding Frances and Unicycle Loves You.
