MAKE IT QUICK
In between BlackBerry salvos and conference calls on your wireless earbud, here’s your chance to find a mate to go with your Battery Park condo and gym membership: the Speed Dating Event for Single Professionals.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27
LOOK OUT STEPHEN KING
Novelist Sarah Goodyear has been making waves in the Maine literary scene. Down East magazine called Goodyear’s debut, View from a Burning Bridge, “A lovely piece of writing.” And the Maine Sunday Telegram called it “fierce and flinty.” That’s good enough for us. Check her out tonight at KGB Bar, 85 E. 4th St. (betw. 2nd Ave. & the Bowery), 212-505-3360; 7, free.
ART OF ICK
Michael Whittle’s very finely wrought, somewhat icky pencil drawings are reportedly inspired by a Dylan Thomas poem. We don’t see it. What we do see is an almost scientific approach to imaginary organic or natural forms, like the blueprints for props in a David Cronenberg flick. “Cloud, Gland, Tributaries,” for instance, could be a river or a fleck of skin magnified by a thousand. Either way, you’ve been warned. The one-man show runs through Oct. 27. Daniel Cooney Fine Art, 511 W. 25th St. (betw. 10th & 11th Aves.), 212-255-8158; Tues.-Sat., 11am-6pm.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
(MUSIC AND DISCUSSION)
In his later years, John Coltrane dug deep into his Eastern roots. He was definitely on some other shit.

Sixty new artworks scattered throughout the neighborhood, 158 private studios open to the public and exhibitions at 16 different venues will celebrate the year’s most popular theme: Green. (As in eco-consciousness, not the hue between blue and yellow in the spectrum.) For a full schedule of events and venues, go to dumboartscenter.org.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29
SIZES, BIG. PRICES, SMALL
In this case, the name almost says it all: The Fat Girl Flea Market is just that, with sizes ranging from XL to 6X, and prices ranging from just a few bucks to no more than 10. What the name doesn’t say is that this is a charity event, with sales of all jeans and coats and swimwear and suits and formal dresses to benefit the LGBT nonprofit NOLOSE. The LGBT Community Center, 208 W. 13th St. (betw. 7th & Greenwich Aves.), 206-337-1573; 11am-8pm, $8.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 1
Halloween just can’t come soon enough, right? Through the middle of December, Rififi presents the classics of horror cinema in its Metropol series. But tonight, it’s something a little different: Tod Browning’s 1932 classic, Freaks, which offers a numbing horror that unfurls gradually—as opposed to the sudden shocks of modern classics that are also being screened, like Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Rififi, 332 E. 11th St. (betw. 1st & 2nd Aves.), 212-677-1027; 10, free ($3 PBR pints).
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2
Immanent closure be damned, Mo Pitkin’s House of Satisfaction continues offering up old-school entertainment—droll comedy and campy performance in the Vaudeville tradition. Tonight, comedian Lisa Levy presents You Bet Your Life LIVE, an updated version of Groucho Marx’s classic TV game show, whereby Lisa will be taking on the role of Groucho Marx. Without a mustache—but with the prize money. Mo Pitkin’s, 34 Avenue A (betw. E. 2nd & 3rd Aves.), 212-777-5660; 9, $7.

THE DISCLAIMER for The Marijuana-Logues assures us that the production at the
Actors’ Playhouse “does not glorify drug use. It merely illustrates that cannibus culture
can be a thing of substance, humor and creativity.” Hey, you don’t have to tell me. We’re
coming up on the 10th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. Where would we be without the gateway drug?
We’d be listening to Nirvana with Courtney Love on bass.
Actually, that’d be pretty funny. A lot of things strike me as funny while
I still try to shake the contact high from the recent Jammy Awards—although film critics
should note that most of us have gotten our zombie/Jesus jokes out of the way by eighth grade. I’m
expecting The Marijuana-Logues to be a proper buzzkiller, but it turns out that Arj
Barker, Doug Benson and Tony Camin do a fine job of goofing on oblivious potheads.
That’s fairly brave, since the cast is typical white hipster comics
with humor that relies on obliviousness. Consider when Benson asks, “Have you ever heard of anyone
killing anyone in a pot-fueled rage?” Well, sure. There’s Yetunde Price, Eric Lorenzo Dean, Angel
Monroy and plenty of other people who’ve been murdered by pot dealers in a rage over business deals
White hipster comics, naturally, wouldn’t be familiar with those names.
As the cast explains at the beginning of the show, potheads have to “know a guy.” That’s so they never
have to go into the neighborhoods where children are killed by random gunfire over marijuana deals.
Most aren’t old enough to appreciate the clever cartoons in High Times.
The Marijuana-Logues is educational, too. I had no idea that
pot is selling for $60 a bag nowadays. The show also mostly avoids recycling stand-up routines with
a quick prelude of “Once, I smoked pot and…” The Marijuana-Logues even has the decency
to remain apolitical. That’s probably due to the anticipated embarrassment of how the audience
members who really get off on cheering marijuana are all over the age of 50—and there are plenty
of those creeps in the crowd.
It’s probably a good sign that most of the audience is in their thirties.
Or maybe that simply means that New Yorkers in their twenties would rather spend $55 on primo weed.
In any case, give the cast credit for ending the show on a chillingly nihilistic note that gets plenty
of applause. It’s a rare example of hipster comedy that truly gets the last laugh on the audience.
Meanwhile, marijuana culture attempts to maintain a grasp on the kiddies
with Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. It’s certainly no accident that the film’s logo
bears a stylistic debt to the Grateful Dead. Parents will also have to keep impressionable kids
away from the aerosol cans. Fortunately, Warner Bros takes a token interest in the children with
a “Doo Your Best Scooby” sound-alike competition at the Times Square Toys “R” Us.
Unlike The Marijuana-Logues, the Scooby-Doo franchise can
draw a real Rainbow Coalition of little kids. Sadly, the competition quickly becomes meaningless
when a future Meryl Streep starts the contest with an uncanny Velma imitation. In 10 years, some
lucky guy will be dressing her up in a cowl-necked sweater and glasses. She easily trumps the long
line of kids waiting to shout “Scooby Dooby Doo!”—but I’m relieved to see that the cliché
of “Ruh-Roh” has seemingly been consigned to (again) film critics and thirtysomethings who’ve
smoked too much pot to remember the lyrics to “Conjunction Junction.”
I’d stay around to make sure Velma isn’t robbed of the giant basket of
Scooby-Doo product, but I can’t stand watching some auxiliary douchebag from WPLJ’s Z Morning
Zoo harassing the little kids. This drives me to check out the new Toys “R” Us Scooby-Doo retail
section—which, in a nice Scooby-Doo 2 tie-in, sports a statue of Captain Cutler’s
Ghost that’s superior to anything in the Whitney.
The new Scooby-Doo car on the Toys “R” Us Ferris Wheel, incidentally,
replaces the Pokémon car. Obviously, not enough stoners appreciated the surreal underwater
sequences and hot female villains in last year’s Pokémon Heroes. Parents shouldn’t
worry about the older audience for Doo 2, though. Any child who’s been raised right will
make his own deduction at how Shaggy can sniff out the members of his fan club. The kid should see at
a glance that Shaggy’s followers are dirty, smelly hippies.
SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS/
It’s taken two decades, but SCOTS have finally returned to the sound that
once made them the Cramps of community colleges. Mojo Box has the trio catching up on a wide
range of influences that they neglected during the 90s. Now if they could just ditch the vocals—or
at least the subject matter straight from the journals of a Chapel Hill freshman. The mix of surf,
soul and rockabilly, however, sounds like a veteran band that’s mastered the art of keeping things
tight and trashy. The Greenhornes, meanwhile, ditched their brilliant frontman and tubby keyboard
player, and are now excited about sounding like a crappy band vaguely influenced by the Greenhornes.
At Maxwell’s on Thursday, Mercury Lounge on Friday, Southpaw on Saturday.
APRIL 2 & 3
THE LOSER’S LOUNGE TRIBUTE TO JESUS
Remember when we just had to worry about them being respectful to Davy Jones?
The Losers may finally be following their comic book namesakes in taking a bridge too far, with selections
from Godspell and the Byrds up against theological legends such as Nirvana and Lou Reed.
It’s also the worst possible time to attempt Johnny Cash, since nothing can compete with the credits
of Dawn of the Dead. Even money says that the Jesus Christ Superstar segment will
play like s&m performance art, too. Fortunately, the typically diverse cast suggests that
someone might remember that music is meant to be spiritual—or have we all forgotten that
Tom Jones’ favorite song is “The Old Rugged Cross?” Prayers, however, are answered with an attempt
at a decent seating arrangement. At Fez.
TRACHTENBURG FAMILY SLIDESHOW PLAYERS
No sooner do we get the White Stripes sorted out than we have to debate the Trachtenburg
bloodline. Owning their CD makes as much sense as listening to a Sally Kellerman LP, too. The Trachtenburgs
are a visual experience, still peddling their sharp pop and gospel tunes inspired by assorted old
slides. The drummer girl will act adorable, and the doddering father will ramble on way too long
between songs. Everyone will feel happy and hip—and that’s what really matters, isn’t it?
At Southpaw. It’s an all-ages matinee at 3 p.m.!
Is there anyone that engenders more sympathy from rock writers than an overweight
pop genius? Never mind why. The important thing is that everyone used to complain that the music
industry neglected Stew because he was a large black man performing gorgeous orchestral pop. Well,
I guess that little theory’s been punctured by a man we like to call Mr. Ruben Studdard. The real problem
is that Stew’s so prolific in his solo career and with his band the Negro Problem that he keeps making
albums—such as Something Deeper Than These Changes—that end up being great
instead of brilliant. Plus, he’s funny enough that nobody minds when he forgets to sing. At Joe’s
