Post image for Slideshow: AFC’s Goth Benefit, Part 1

Unless you’ve been un-living under a tombstone, you know Art F City’s Goth Benefit took over the dungeon of Collapsable Hole Tuesday night. It’s an evening few of us will forget. Just in case we do, however, photographer Liz Ligon was there to document it thoroughly. From Hot Topic merch raffles to the goth opera stylings of Joseph Keckler, it was wild night. See for yourself below.

Post image for Set up For Your Best Year Ever: A Tax Day How-To

Here we are at Tax Day. Your taxes are filed. (They aren’t? Here’s an IRS extension form – postmark it today. You’ll need one for your state, too.)

Last year you vowed to get your stuff in order. Then suddenly the tax deadline was upon you, and you scrambled through the process, and weren’t as careful as you intended to be. You suspected you should have been paying estimated quarterly taxes all year, but didn’t, and now your tax bill is surprisingly high.

Now that the time pressure is off, let’s take a look at how you can make this year better. Plus some discounts on apps that can help you.

The time has finally come. Our Goth Benefit is here. We’ll be converting Collapsable Hole into a goth wonderland, complete with drag performers, surprise guests, and options such as handcuffs for couples. (We’re also having a goth couple outfit contest, so plan accordingly). If last year’s benefit was any indication, this is basically going to be the party of the year.

Wednesday, nurse your hangover with a likely-nipple-tastic Betty Tompkins solo show at Marlborough Contemporary. Other highlights this week include Siebren Versteeg’s digital paintings at bitforms on Thursday, the annual Seven on Seven conference at the New Museum on Saturday, and Sunday’s open studios at the Studio Museum in Harlem.
