Cheap$kate: FREE events in NYC this weekend
Nat Baldwin concert
Catch Dirty Projectors bassist Nat Baldwin slapping the bass this Sunday at the Manhattan Inn in Greenpoint. Granted, he'll more likely be strumming the bass than slapping it - he'll be playing on an upright one - but we couldn't resist a reference to "I Love You, Man." Baldwin will share tunes from his latest album, "People Changes," which is his fourth full-length one. The show is part of the Manhattan Inn's free concert series, which offers live performances every Wednesday and Sunday showcasing music from emerging and established NYC artists. (Sunday, 10:30 p.m., FREE, Manhattan Inn, 632 Manhattan Ave., Greenpoint, 718-383-0885, themanhattaninn.com)
Bulgarian Images: Film, Music and Dance!
Take a virtual trip to Bulgaria with the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts' exhibition featuring the work of Martin Koenig. The exhibit will feature his film about Bulgarian music and dance, which is running in conjunction with his photo exhibition, "Voices & Images from Bulgaria." Koenig will lead a Q&A after the screening. (Thursday, 6-7:30 p.m., FREE, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Bruno Walter Auditorium, 40 Lincoln Center Plz., 917-275-6975, nypl.org)
