While We’re Young
The ever-popular category of “dramadies” has a new entry in the film While We’re Young. Starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, and Amanda Seyfried, While We’re Young follows a New York City filmmaker and his wife whose lives are turned upside down when they start spending time with a pair of free-spirited 20-somethings.
While We’re Young gives a window into middle-aged life — in the heart of hipster motherland, Brooklyn, no less — and explores the concept that age is just a number. Is “young” a state of mind?

In the month of April, Mondays are going to be something to look forward to. The Hum is starting their month-long residency at Manhattan Inn on April 6, featuring all female collaborations between musicians and visual artists. I like to look for a wide variety of music at larger shows like this, and The Hum has done it — from the pop sounds of Teletextile to the more punk music of Brainfreeze. And to add to the fun, each week a different artist will be playing projections over the bands’ sets.
