Roll through Bushwick and experience artisanal cheese doodles, mobile vintage clothing stores, and bars as far as the eye can see.

We’ll publish a separate post dedicated to those events shortly, but in the meantime we’ve got a bunch of show recommendations that have nothing to do with BOS: Indulge your penchant for nostalgia with a rock and roll puppet show set in the late 60’s. Explore the world of mobile phone art. Brace yourself for a multichannel immersive video game experience. Even without BOS, there’s no free time in our schedules. There shouldn’t be any in yours either.

Oh, boy-o. Ideas City, the New Museum’s all-things-city conference returns, and it seems to have scattered away most other art events for the weekend. That, or everyone else is really excited about going to the beach. For those of us who’ll be in the city, there’s an array of talks, from 1980s goth culture at the Morbid Anatomy Museum to a symposium on psychoacoustics at ALLGOLD. New York, you never ever bore us.
