Green Porno
  • "Green Porno"

Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

There's no better way to learn about the birds and the bees than by watching film legend Isabella Rossellini dress up as an actual bee and reenact the insect's mating rituals. Rossellini herself will be on hand at Thalia Hall tonight to present her "Green Porno" series, a collection of short films about animal reproduction as explained by cardboard cutouts, foam sculptures, and Rossellini in hand-stitched costumes.

When you think of art walks, chances are you think of looking at lots and lots of paintings. And occasionally scamming a free glass of wine. There's nothing wrong with paintings, but you can rest assured the West Town Art Walk will be more varied. The neighborhood is celebrating art in all forms: visual, musical, and culinary. We can't make any promises about the free wine.

Hercules & Love Affair stop by the Metro tonight. Leor Galil writes of their debut album that its "baroque, sleekly refined disco is devoid of cheesiness and post-Demolition Night baggage, making for some seriously alluring and effortlessly cool tracks. And those featuring the gorgeous, brassy voice of Antony & the Johnsons front man Antony Hegarty are particularly stunning, specifically the funky low-key 'Raise Me Up.'"
