Tips for Today: Dressed to Kill in NYC + Polica in L.A. + Hugh Laurie in Chicago + Le Gateau Chocolat in London


New York

92YTribeca continues thrilling audiences on Tuesdays, this time with Brian DePalma's
equally campy and erotic urbanized meditation on Psycho, Dressed to Kill. The
film stars Angie Dickinson as a bored housewife whose unfortunate meeting with a razor-wielding and cross dressing killer in an elevator introduces a mystery that entangles her psychologist (Michael Caine), wiz kid son (Keith Gordon) and a street-wise prostitute (DePalma regular Nancy Allen). New York City also plays a prominent role as the setting, from a game of cat and mouse in the Met to a chic and thrilling chase scene on the subway. [Flavorpill]

Be among the first to experience the smokey, alt folk of Australian import Husky
at Joe's Pub. The indie rock group hailing from Melbourne have been doing a lot of
leg work opening for a range of touring artists from Goyte to Noah & the Whale down
under, and this will be the perfect opportunity to catch them playing from their soon to
be released album Forever Ago before they hit festivals like SXSW later this year.

Maybe it's just the prominent featuring of illegal hacking on The Newsroom or the
giant New York City and Microsoft surveillance system, but lately we feel like someone
may be watching us. So does Garret Keizer, whose book Privacy tackles the policing
of the digital world after 9/11. Tonight, the author, and Harper's Magazine contributing editor, will have a dialogue with fellow Harper's editor Chris Beha about the thin
line between our public and private lives at the Prince Street McNally Jackson. [McNally

He stars in his solo show at the Menier Chocolate Factory tonight. [Time Out]

Contemporary UK multimedia artist and writer Jeremy Millar, whose recent projects
have ranged from photography to a life sized 'drowned' sculpture of his likeness, is

Organizer. [Zing Magazine]
