MUGWeekend

Art
At the Jeff Bailey Gallery, 511 W. 25th [10th/11th] 212.989.0156, the exhibition "Blue" opens tonight (6pm-8pm) featuring the paintings of Louise Belcourt and Sue Havens and drawings by Stephen Hendee. (Ms. Belcourt's "Hedge Painting #18" is pictured.)

Pop
Julian Velard's bio reads that he's the "son of a French ATM designer and a queen-sized L'eggs model." OK, we love him already. And young Mr. Velard applies his enormously appealing, blues-soaked voice to some irresistible pop music. He's at Joe's Pub this Friday at 7pm, $12.

Documentary
We first read in detail about Lt. General Roméo Dallaire in Samantha Power's gut-wrenching (not to mention Pulitzer Prize-winning) A Problem From Hell: America and the Age of Genocide. Much more about this amazing man and bona fide hero in his own book Shake Hands with the Devil and the documentary of the same name playing at the Film Forum through Tuesday. Unforgettable.

Classical
Fireworks is a contemporary classical ensemble worth getting to know. They're performing the music of Brian Coughlin on Sunday, 3pm, at Tenri, 43 W. 13th [5th/6th] 212.645.2800. $10.

TV
This weekend would be a good time to catch up with the Fishers and Six Feet Under via DVD. The show returns Monday, June 6 (yes, Monday) and we hear that a major character dies this season. If we only knew which one…
