MUGWeekend

Photography
Andre Kertesz (1894-1985): "The moment always dictates my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me." We've always loved the moody, yet warm works of photographer Andre Kertesz. See a small selection of his Paris period at the Howard Greenberg Gallery, 41 E. 57th [Mad] 212.334.0010

Book
Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety — if the title resonates for you, you may want to get a copy of Judith Warner's new book. It's a look at the forces that have shaped our current notions of parenting. (Riverhead, $23.95),

Baroque Music
The Rebel Baroque Orchestra plays 17th century baroque music of Poland, Italy, and Germany (including music for strings, lute, harpsichord, and organ) this Sunday, February 20, 3pm, at Kosciuszko Foundation House, 15 E. 65th [5th/Mad] 212.734.2130. Tickets are $20.

Kids
Repenomamus giganticus, the largest-known primitive mammal, and a baby dinosaur (its dinner) are new models on display at the Museum of Natural History, starting this Saturday (through March 13). The Museum will stay open until 7:45pm this Saturday through Monday as well as next weekend. 212.769.5100.

Comedy
All other titles seems to pale after "Woo Pig Sooie!" Matt Besser's one-man show about the making of an atheist. One night only, (Saturday, February 19, 9pm) at the Upright Citizens Brigade, 307 W. 26th [8th/9th]. $8.

Bar
At Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allan [Stanton/Houston] 212.477.4155, a new, small watering hole, catch some live music — Lauren Cregor, Saturday at 8pm, will do nicely.

Out of Town
AirFrance has round-trips to Paris or Nice for $300, plus taxes. Book by 2/22, departure before 3/16.

Sculpture
"A Failure of Direct Automation and Rock 'n Roll Appease to the Gods" is the name of installation sculptor Jonathan Schipper's new show at Pierogi 2000, 177 N. 9th [Bedford/Driggs] Bklyn 718.599.2144, now through 3/14. Not quite like anything else.
