Rock out with your art out as MOCA hosts the third and final installment of Battle of the Bands for their Sympathy for the Devil exhibit. Complimentary Grolsch beer and Dogma dogs should keep you fueled through sets by Electric Bunnies and Sinister Smith.
Things to do for August 28, 2008
The Weekend Starts Here
The weekend refuses to say goodbye to summer. Or to you.
Spa Month ends Sunday, so it's your last chance to take advantage of $99 treatments at pleasure dens like the Setai, ESPA at the Acqualina and Spa Chakra at the Conrad. Go ahead, get hot stoned.
My Morning Jacket at the Fillmore
The live-band maestros haul their Kentucky-fried country rock to the Fillmore Friday. Settle into your comfy seat, knock back a bit of bourbon and savor the crystal-clear acoustics of the guy next to you saying, "Wait, are these the guys from I'm Not There?"
Head to Upper East Side Garden's third summer barbecue night for a live performance by the Jean Marie and smoked chicken courtesy of artist Jason Hedges's custom-built vertical smoker. Finally, an artist who understands your needs.
Dwyane Wade Olympic Celebration
Greet returning US "Redeem Team" basketball gold medalist Dwyane Wade with a hero's welcome Saturday night at Nikki Marina. Red, gold and white attire is requested, so you know what that means: time to break out the bling.
Black Sunday at Bella Rose
No work on Monday means you can finally check out Bella Rose's infamous end-of-the-weekend bloodbath. Someone usually bites it in the bathroom and it's all caught on video. You've always wanted to be a viral video star.
