Up Next

photography… Whatever Sheila Metzner sees, we want to see it, too. The extraordinary photographer is adept in many genres—fashion, still life, landscape, portraits—but the work always seems startlingly fresh. There's a retrospective of her career, including selections from her latest series, 36 Views of Brooklyn Bridge (above), at the Visual Arts Museum, 209 E. 23rd [2nd/3rd] 212.592.2145, through October 4th.

indie rock… Saturday: Tel Aviv punks Monotonix spit, sweat and swear at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Saturday: Boris headlines the free East Village Radio music fest at South Street Seaport. Just Announced…9/12: Oasis. 11/5: The Decemberists. 11/10: Girl Talk

movies… At Film Forum, 9/12-10/2, newly restored 35mm prints of The Godfather and The Godfather Part II. They've been carefully regenerated by Paramount, supervised by Coppola himself. Week one is film one, week two is II, and week three is a series of back-to-back screenings. And remember: Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

sports… Baseball in these parts is about to undergo a double-headed makeover; if you're feeling a little nostalgic, head out to the Brooklyn Cyclones for the last home games of the season (there's a fireworks show on Friday night), the last of summer, and a taste of old-timey ball.

shopping… Martin Margiela on sale—that doesn't happen too often. But at the Project No. 8 sample sale, you'll find Margiela, plus men's and women's clothes from Stephan Schneider, Kostas Murkudis, Sunshine & Shadow, Christian Wijnants, and more. Today, 5-9pm, tomorrow and Saturday, noon-7pm. It takes place at 215 Centre [Howard/Grand] 2nd flr. 212.925.5599.

art… Opening tomorrow at Lyons Wier Ortt Gallery, 175 7th [20th/21st] 212.242.6220, Debutant, the first solo exhibition of paintings and drawings by Melodie Provenzano, who creates still-life composites combining fabric and figurines, under a heavy influence of the dream world.

movie… While you were away, Momma's Man opened, an indie film by Azazel Jacobs, that earned virtually universal raves: Variety: "[A] wryly comic, sometimes heartbreaking and altogether original film. The Times: "A touchingly true film…with a heart the size of the Ritz." Playing at the Angelika.
