Eight Items or Less: KAWS & Katy Perry Are So Hot Right Now

Gary Pini

1. Midnight movies are back... and now they're playing right in you living room!  IFC Films is set to premiere four films each month on video-on-demand in a new series called IFC Midnight.   The Human Centipede, Cell 211, Doghouse and Don't Look Back are already scheduled.

2. A bomb squad destroyed a suspicious package left outside of an Orlando church that turned out to be $2,500 in cash left by an anonymous donor.

3. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut is launching the first solo museum exhibition of works by KAWS.  The show opens on June 27 and runs through January 2, 2011.  Rizzoli's KAWS book is coming out in September and Interview magazine ran a Q&A with him (conducted by Tobey Macguire) in their current issue.

4. Maxim magazine lists their 100 hottest women of 2010.  Last year's PAPER cover-gal Katy Perry is #1.

5. Ray-Ban is having a BIG party!  It's tomorrow night in Brooklyn with Iggy & the Stooges, Free Energy and the Virgins performing.   

6. NYC is cracking down on nightlife, so more events are moving underground. Local promoters Mister Saturday Night are hosting London's Horse Meat Disco this week, but the location is top-secret.

6. The National Design Triennial: Why Design Now? opens on May 14 and runs until January 9, 2011, at Cooper-Hewitt (2 East 91st Street).   Also on view are Ted Muehling's selections from the museum's collection of Lobmeyr glass.
