    Across the globe, partygoers are ditching their all-black wardrobes and perma-pouts for Crayola-colored hair and ensembles. But following the rainbow, is also a state of mind. Below, we paint the town red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet with Colin Self, Peggy Noland, Molly Soda, Clairey Pear, the gals of Bleach salon and the folks from Wild Records. Plus, a one-stop-shop for all of your rainbow-accessorizing needs.

    We're excited to premiere the first episode of Across the Board, a new skateboarding/surfing/snowboarding-centric show from YouTube's Reserve Channel, hosted by model and (and one of our favorite Parenthood actresses), Joy Bryant. We knew that the gal was a huge snowboarding enthusiast (read our little chat with Bryant at a Burton party HERE) but didn't realize that her interests extended across multiple horizontal, wooden platforms. That aside, check out the show's premiere, which features Bryant chatting and skating -- knee pads, awesome novena candle socks and all -- with Paul Rodriguez III, a hunky six-time X Games medal-winning pro-skater (who appeared on our 25th anniversary cover, and, fun fact, is the son of comedian Paul Rodriguez). And, though you wouldn't expect a skate park to facilitate some heart-to-hearts, Bryant and Rodriguez get pretty deep chatting about religion and family (and then, okay, skating and tattoos). There'll be new episodes of Across the Board each month and head over to Reserve to watch the channel's other newly-launched talk shows hosted by Pharrell Williams and Tom Colicchio.

    Great combo of trippy visuals and chill-out music -- maybe we should have another psychedelic music video week?-- from Arca for a track called  "Manners."  The dude has done shows with MoMA PS1 and GHE2O GOTH1K and if you're curious, check out his new album Stretch 2 on UNO NYC records.  The video was made by UK digital artist and filmmaker Jesse Kanda.

    Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf? at Booth Theatre

    Albee Damned! They changed Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?! How could they and, more importantly, is it better or worse for the edit? Find out in our full review whether we think they should have stayed faithful or if, like the manic Martha, we think it's okay to cheat a little now and then.


    Neutral Hero
    at The Kitchen

    Neutral Hero, now playing at downtown institution The Kitchen, is Richard Maxwell's first play in five years that he's both written and directed.  In the Iliad-like piece, he sets himself the unenviable task of achieving total neutrality on the part of his protagonist (and, impossibly, on the part of the audience and their feelings toward said protagonist). What would compel someone to do such a thing? Are the results worth the effort of creative team and more importantly is it worth the effort of the audience? Find out in our full review!


    Wild With Happy at The Public Theater
    Colman Domingo is a force. His over-the-top personas are a font of fun. From a closeted Baptist and a West Berlin performance artist in Passing Strange to a foul-mouthed Maya Angelou on the brilliant but cancelled Big Gay Sketch Show, his characters never disappoint. But how does he fair in the more intimate and emotional territory of a play he penned himself about his mother's death? In Wild With Happy, now playing at The Public Theater, we get a chance to see if his softer side is as engaging as his outrageous one.

    Many a bottle of newly unveiled booze is sent to chill Williamsburg lair Ba'sik with the hopes that co-owner Jay Zimmerman will become smitten. Angostura 7-year-old rum is one such success story. Zimmerman says he was instantly impressed by the Trinidadian import upon first taste and, he says, "I made some cocktails with it and everything was coming out delicious and complex."

    Brandon Bramhall, one of Zimmerman's bartenders, also started experimenting with the rum, combining it with fresh grapefruit juice, lime juice and simple syrup to elicit the Picket Fence. With its vegetal artichoke note, compelling Italian liqueur Cynar lends a touch of bitter roundness.

    "Something about the drink reminded me of sitting on a porch and staring out onto a big lawn on a summer night; the image of an old picket fence came to mind," says Zimmerman.

    Although the temperatures are finally starting to dip, we suspect a scarf and hat is all that will separate us from sipping a few of these long into fall on Ba'sik's own lovely backyard perch.

    The Picket Fence
    1 oz.  Angostura 7-year-old rum
    ¾ oz. Cynar
    ¾ oz. fresh grapefruit juice
    ½ oz. lime juice
    ½ oz. simple syrup

    Shake ingredients and serve up in a cocktail glass.

    asher_levine_masks_honey_boo_boo.jpegCooler than cool young designer (and former PAPER Beautiful Person) Asher Levine (whose following of devotees includes Jared Leto, the Black Eyed Peas and, most notably, Lady Gaga) has a line of cuckoo crazy Halloween masks this season featuring everyone from Honey Boo Boo (above) and "Count" Lagerfeld to Andy "Were'hol" and The Editor From the Black Lagoon (who bears a suspicious resemblance to Anna Wintour). Though at first we mistook the Honey Boo Boo version for a mask looking like an eighty-year old woman, we think that could actually be a brilliant move by the young designer because aren't HBB's bon mots occasionally just as insightful as those coming from a beloved granny?

    The masks, which go for $100 a pop (just rationalize them as collector's items), can be purchased on Levine's website.

The event includes a costume workshop for participating artists (of which there are many), a costume parade, and a Halloween party with music by weblebrity Mykki Blanco. Expect for shit to get crazy and to see Courtney and Klaus in un-pixelated, un-watermarked form. (Apparently PS1 has better things to do, like, say, organizing this costume contest, than to set up a PatrickMcMullan.com account?)

    Screen shot 2012-10-25 at 5.31.37 PM.pngBuzzy girl band TEEN, fronted by former Here We Go Magic keyboard player Teeny Lieberson, have had quite the busy year releasing their debut album In Limbo and playing shows with Purity Ring, Ariel Pink, and Santigold. The foursome, which includes Teeny's two sisters, Lizzie and Katherine, along with friend Jane Herships create dreamy, New Wave-esque harmonies and psych-pop hooks that seem particularly well suited to accompany a super-hip laser light show (book 'em now, Knockdown Center!). The band recently joined forces with DJ Japanster -- the Paris-born DJ who's been making rounds of his own, playing sets at MoMA PopRally parties, Fashion Week fêtes and "The Cools" Jamboree Party -- who remixed one of In Limbo's tracks, "Electric." We're excited to exclusively premiere the synth-heavy remix, which you can also download, below.

    Last night Petty Fest took over Webster Hall, with Cabin Down Below band and friends doing Tom Petty covers that sometimes sounded better than the original. Surprise guests Cyndi Lauper, Fred Armisen, Albert Hammond Jr., Fabrizio Moretti and John McEnroe turned up. And who knew Alia Shawkat of Arrested Development could sing? Other musicians who covered Petty's hits included Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner, Father John Misty, Har Mar Superstar, Nicole Atkins, Andrew W.K. and Karen Elson. Jameson sponsored the event, with 100% of the ticket sales benefiting the charity Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. A different lineup will perform at Petty Fest in Los Angeles on November 14th and 15th.

Per the show's catalog, English's "Crucial Fiction" features works that "address a fantastical question: What might happen if a 50 year old man at the height of his powers as fine artist and painter, could finally animate the elaborate visions constructed by his 8-year-old self, that boy who dug holes to China in the backyard while imagining every blade of grass as a green army soldier laid low by the advancing plastic hordes of cowboys, indians and assorted disposable heroes?"  Check out English's pieces below, which go in display November 1st.

    If you wore a Band-Aid on Halloween in 2002, you were Nelly.  Wear one this year and people will ask: "What happened to your face?"  Yes, costumes were simpler then and today's oldie-but-goodie music video, "Hot in Herre," was a giant step backward for proper spelling, but what a song.  Pharrell wrote it, Nelly sang it and it went to #1.  Can you spot Carmelo Anthony?

    Accompanying the upcoming MoMA exhibition of the same name, Doryun Chong's new book Tokyo 1955-1970: A New Avant-Garde explores the provocative and radical art produced in post-war Japan. The book is filled with over 200 pages of vibrant pictures and illustrations that feature the paintings, sculpture, photography, dance and more that was being created in this transformative period of Tokyo's history. Some of it is brilliant, some of it it's really strange, but all of it is fascinating. The exhibition runs from November 18, 2012 to February 25, 2013. Take a sneak peek at images below.
