WHAT'S UP IN NEW YORK CITY ART, MUSIC, & FASHION
CULT EDITOR'S TOP EVENTS TO HIT THIS WEEK
TWIN SHADOW & LOLAWOLF
MAR 31st, doors @ 8PM, show @ 9PM at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 N. 6th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11249
Pretty bummed this MUST-SEE duo of on-the-rise artists is currently SOLD OUT, but if you can manage to snag some tickets definitely get involved! The venue is solid and Twin Shadow's chill, romantic jams are the perfect complement to opening band Lolawolf's sugary fashion vibes. Tickets here.
LAUREN BACALL: THE LOOK
NOW - APRIL 4th at the Gallery @ FIT, 227 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001
Classic Hollwood glamour on display? Yep, I'm in: "Lauren Bacall: The Look is a celebration of the film and theater star's unique style.

Get your tickets here.
