architecture… Raymond Hood: The "Brilliant Bad Boy" of New York Architecture is the subject of a talk March 4th, 6:30-8pm, $10, at The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. [1st Pl.] 212.945.6324, by its director, Carol Willis. Email for availability. Hood's American Radiator Building is pictured.

indie rock… Friday:
Headlights and Evangelicals play a night of catchy pop at Union Hall. One goes for keys, the other goes for quirks. Saturday: Swedish electro beat duo Lo-Fi-Fnk synth up Highline Ballroom. You can dance if you want to. Just Announced…8/8 - 8/10: Radiohead, Cat Power, New Pornographers and more at the All Points West Festival.

movies… Variety said that The Unforeseen was "the best film at the 2007 Sundance Film festival, hands down." It's the true story of a Texas real estate developer versus the survival of a swimming hole—not a promising premise, perhaps, but it turns out to be a compelling case-in-point, and an absorbing documentary.

politics… At McNally-Robinson, 52 Prince [Laf/Mulberry] 212.274.1160, on March 4th, 7pm, Craig Unger, author of The Fall of the House of Bush: The Untold Story of How a Band of True Believers Seized the Executive Branch, Started the Iraq War, and Still Imperils America's Future, will have a discussion about the roots of the neocon and Christian alliance with author Mark Crispin Miller.

heads up… This sounds like a knockout: celebrating 35 years of The Acting Company, a one-night-only show called The Ladies Who Sing Sondheim. On the bill: Angela Lansbury, Patti Lupone, Debra Monk, Laura Benanti, Pamela Myers, and Jenna Russell. The date is Monday, April 7, 7pm, tickets start at $100.
