Ambient rock/classical, or thereabouts, from itsyouitsnotme at Joe's Pub on 2/1, celebrating the release of their new CD. Listen to tracks from their debut album here.

Up to 70% off Roberta Freymann designs, 153 E. 70th [Lex] 212.585.3767, 1/14-1/18.

Five blue cheeses and two non-blues get matched to seven fine beers courtesy of The Joy of Cheese at d.b.a Brooklyn on 1/12, $20.

indie rock… Friday: A electro DJ set by Holy Ghost! turns Webster Hall into something awesome. Saturday: The So So Glos play punk for the cool kids (literally) at The Living Room's Kidrockers show. Just Announced… 3/25-3/27: Nada Surf. 3/31: The xx.

movies… Opening tomorrow at the IFC, a documentary about Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist Eric Kandel called In Search of Memory that traces his life from Nazi-occupied Vienna to his major work on memory and the brain. Kandel's highly engaging personality, and the research on memory, make for a fine documentary.

event… Brooklyn Based launches their inaugural Wedding Crashers, a wedding fair taking place on Saturday at the Bell House, 10:30-5. The cost is $40 for the whole day; that gets you the chance to talk with designers, caterers, photographers, bands, plus lots of other goodies.

… A new exhibition of works by Brooklyn artist Julian Jackson, called Will 'O The Wisp, opens tonight, 6-8pm, at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, 529 W. 20th [10th/11th] 212.366.5368. The paintings are layered works of color and light (yes, those old warhorses) that we think are exquisite.

photography… We've been fans for a long time of photographer Denis Darzacq for his joyous, gravity-defying images. He has a show at the Laurence Miller Gallery, 20 W. 57th [5th/6th] 212.397.3930, beginning January 14th.

restaurants… Chefs, restaurants, food fashions rise and fall, come and go. One constant in this city, though, for which we are endlessly grateful, is the consistently excellent work of Alfred Portale and Gotham Bar and Grill, 12 E. 12th [5th/Univ] 212.420.6020. Monday nights all year, they're featuring the foods of different regions in a series of dinners called Mondays Uncorked. They'll do the cooking, you bring wine from the region, they'll waive the corkage fee. It's $75 for the four-course prix fixe menu.
