This Week: Tori Spelling, Grand Central Debaters, Weird Miami
Put that gold AmEx card away. This week is on us. Below, we've listed one (at least!) free event for each day of the week: Wynwood galleries, celebrity book signings, climate change talks scored by the Yeah, Yeah Yeahs, and even space-western art films.
Monday: Wynwood's Bas Fischer Invitational highlights the strangeness of our city in their "Weird Miami" exhibit, open daily if you make an appointment. They also host Weird Miami bus tours. Check back later today when we'll tell you all about yesterday's jaunt through Miami's strange spots.
Tuesday: Another event to file under "crazy-but-entertaining marketing
schemes." Lexus is launching hybrid cars, so they've organized a debate
on green living dubbed "The Darker Side of Green." Comedian Jamie
Kennedy will host, environmental journalist Amanda Little and
professional cyclist Chris Horner will argue, and the Misshapes and
Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner will DJ. This Grand Central event
Wednesday: On hump day, you'll have two extremes of free events
choices: You could go get a book signed by celebutante Tori Spelling or
you could hear a respected journalist, Gwynne Dyer, sound off on
climate change. Both are hosted by Books and Books, and both are free.
Thursday: Sweat Records is hosting a free screening of American
Astronaut, a space-western/musical by Cory McAbee of the Bill Nayer
Show band. Check out the trailer:
Friday: One of the standouts of the recent Wynwood openings for July's
art walk was "Boy, Oh Boy," a visual tour of issues of manhood, at the
Fredric Snitzer Gallery. The gallery, which is always free, is open
Tuesday through Saturday.
