TRANTASTIC: Transsexual Holly Woodlawn - 1970s downtown fixture, artsy Warhol wingwoman, immortalized in Lou Reed's infamous "Walk on the Wild Side" (yep, she's the one who "hitchhiked her way across the U.S.A.") - fetes her 62nd birthday with a happening at the Cutting Room.
DIGGING DEEP: Philly hip-hop outfit The Roots are an uncompromising bunch - expect their show at Roseland Ballroom (with Gym Class Heroes and Estelle) to be a full and proper evening, probably steeped in (and sending up) the hyper-charged pre-election vibe.
BLOODY GREAT: A good 20 years before making-of documentaries began littering the landscape (Baghead, anyone?), Joel DeMott's Demon Lover Diary (1980) followed a pair of filmmakers attempting to make a low-budget slasher film. See a rare showing of the cult classic at the Maysles Cinema tonight.
