The Gay Agenda
By Joseph Hassan
Wednesday, November 5: Tonight at New York City's Guggenheim Museum, boundary-breaking and critically acclaimed bisexual novelist A.M. Homes reads a selection of her work in the intimate setting of artist Catherine Opie's series 'In and Around Home.' Like Opie, Homes documents contemporary America's changing families, suburban culture, and shifting identities. Homes is best known for her controversial novels, such as The End of Alice, written from the perspective of a convicted child molester. (She has also served as a writer and producer on The L Word.) Tonight's reading begins at 6:30 PM EST. Tickets are available at the door and run $10 ($7 for museum members and students). Check the Guggenheim site for details.
Thursday, November 6: Tonight, Little Annie and Paul Wallfisch perform songs from their new album, When Bad Things Happen to Good Pianos, at New York City's Santos Party House. Little Annie's sound is a charming mix of electronica, hip hop, reggae, and dance, and that eclecticism shines through on the artist's latest full-length, which includes covers of tunes from Tina Turner, Jacques Brel, and Frank Sinatra. If you don't think you know her, revisit this racy clothing-tearing Levi's ad. That sexy soundtrack is the unmistakable collaboration between Little Annie and Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons). Click here for tickets to the concert, which starts at 7:00 PM EST.
