  • Acclaimed photographer Jesse Frohman is kicking off his exhibition of photos of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain at the Morrison Hotel Gallery tomorrow (4/5) - the 18th anniversary of the frontman's untimely death. Following the opening, there will be a private afterparty with a live performance by The Virgins and a DJ set by Jarvis Cocker (Pulp) (Grand Life Hotels)

  • Speaking of Jarvis Cocker, the Pulp frontman will be playing live on the fourth floor of the Whitney Museum with his side project Relaxed Muscle as part of the Whitney Biennial. How'd you like THAT segue? (Art In America)
