What’s Happening This Week…
By Eva Medoff, June 7th, 2010
Have You Heard? is our weekly roundup of items we may have previously missed (or would like to remind you of again). So as you plan the week ahead, take a look at our cherry-picked selections of what’s hot in art, music, film and fashion right now.
If you’re one of the lucky few who scored tickets, then you’ll be jamming out to La Roux’s 80s synth pop tonight while the rest of us watch this video over and over again at home. Perhaps you could find some last-minute tickets on Craigslist?
Starting today through the 14th, you can get free blowouts, light styling and color consultation from the man behind the tresses of everyone from Diane Kruger to Lenny Kravitz. Ric Pipino and his team will be setting up shop at Henri Bendel (5th Ave and 56th St) until 8 p.m. daily (except Sunday). On a side note, Goldfrapp’s single, “Alive,” is available for purchase today.
Charlotte Ronson rolls out the deals on her rocker chic downtown looks. Stop by her showroom (1071 6th Ave between 40th and 41st Sts) today through Friday between 10 and 7 for boyfriend blazers and crop tops.
If you still can’t get enough discounted fashion, Gwen Stefani will also be slashing prices on her 50s starlet/glam rock collections L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers. Snag handbags for up to 70 percent off (Thursday 10 to 8, Friday 10 to 6 at The Savvy, 307 W 38th St between 8th and 9th Aves).
Stop by Mason Dixon for its first night of World Cup festivities, featuring sweet drink deals.
Bona fide down-south barbecue, in New York? No need to say more. Stop by 54 Bond St between 7 and 9 p.m. for pork tacos and slow-roasted BBQ provided by Billy Reid.
