The New Yorker Festival: Though tickets to the festival are notorious for selling out quickly (and all online tickets already have), you can still snag some passes to individual events on the fest's opening night -- like talks by Martin Amis, Zadie Smith, Jennifer Egan (one of our favorite Papermag interviewees ever), Jonathan Safran Foer and noted Hanson-endorsed novelist Gary Shteyngart --  if you show up early to the door. Same goes for other weekend highlights, including conversations with Patti Smith, Christian Louboutin, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Lena Dunham, Salman Rushdie and Portlandia's Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen.

We thoroughly enjoy the mayjah attitude Cakes Da Killa exudes in his banji rap jam "Whistle", and now you have the chance to soak up some of that 'tude and see this up-and-coming queer rapper at Cake Shop. [Cake Shop]

Brian De Palma's trippy, 1974 take on the Phantom of the Opera, titled Phantom of the Paradise, features a gay rock star diva, meticulous violence, and the atmospheric suspense the director would later become known for in Carrie, Dressed to Kill, and The Untouchables. All the makings of a great midnight movie, tonight at  Nitehawk [Nitehawk]

Murray Moss hooked-up with big international auction house Phillips de Pury for a unique sale on October 16th, here in New York City.  Moss and his partner Franklin Getchell closed their SoHo showroom in February and moved up to midtown to launch a "design advisory service," Moss Bureau (256 West 36th Street). Now they've selected 124 items from their private collection -- including works by Maarten Baas, Gio Ponti, the Campana Brothers and Dutch designer Hella Jongerius -- and they'll be auctioned on October 16th.  Everything will be on-view starting tomorrow, October 6th, and up until the auction at Phillips' location at 450 Park Avenue.

Take your pick from Jaws OR Jurassic Park, both separately screening at midnight at the IFC Center, both Spielberg classics that scared the crap out of us as kids. (And still kind of do.) (While you're making up your mind, watch this 10-minute loop of Jeff Goldblum's weird laugh in Jurassic Park ). [IFCCenter]

Tonight's the last installment of old Flushing factory-turned-arts-space (with mini-golf!) Knockdown Center's Bring Your Own Beamer party series, in which over 20 artists have been asked to come with their own projectors and beam their work across the space. Music from Lydsod, Trabajo, Raft and more are also on the agenda. More details here. (Thanks, Rebecca)

Housed in a massive, raw warehouse, "modern day World's Fair" The Feast Pavilion & Party showcases art installations interpreting feats of innovation -- in areas as varied as psychogeography and crowd sourcing tools -- along with music, food trucks and community booths. After you've had your share of the art, stick around for a dance party and screening of Girl Talk's epic feature-length music video, Girl Walk // All Day, directed by Jacob Krupnick and shot all over NYC.

An ode to the teen-outcast, mid-'90s fashion and girls being shitty to each other, The Craft will always have a place in our hearts. Channel your inner teen witch and head to Nitehawk this afternoon for a 12:15 p.m. brunch screening. [Nitehawk]

Twiggy Pucci Garcon, recently featured in our piece on the New York Ballroom/voguing scene, and filmmaker Sara Jordeno will be previewing footage from the documentary film project Gesture during The Movement  Ball at MoMA P.S. 1. The event is an actual ball itself, with performers from the Kiki Ballroom scene, including those who posed for our tremendous style feature shot by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders , giving face, walking runway and voguing.

Who says you have to spend a ton of money on art? (Don't answer that, art dealers.) The Affordable Art Fair, wrapping up its 4-day stint in NYC today, has you covered with affordable options. Pieces range from $100 to, ahem, $10,000, (puh-lease) and feature the work of over 150 contemporary artists from around the world. And if $100 is still too steep, you can always just window shop and check out a bunch of great work in the meantime. [Time Out]

Beer, bratwurst + Williamsburg = Brooklyn Rocktoberfest, happening this Sunday at the Richardson. All Brooklyn Brewery beer will be $5 and will come with a free bratwurst from the Meat Hook while supplies last (so get there early)! There will also be a performance of "1920′s banjo punk rock" at 3 p.m. (never change, Williamsburg) and Brooklyn Brewery's brewmaster Garrett Oliver will be doing a special tasting of a bourbon barrel ghost bottle. (Basically, a bourbon that's the Brewery's own special home brew experiment and not on the market yet.) [BrooklynBased]
