events-0120"The visuals connected to the Obama campaign seemed on a higher level than the political norm." No kidding. CAN & DID: Graphics, Art, and Photography from the Obama Campaign at Danzinger Projects.
There's nothing like feeling a surge of national American pride while honoring a local Brooklyn institution like BAM! Free tickets will be available beginning 11am, first come first seated. Live Inauguration Broadcast at BAM.
Once Will Ferrell started impersonating George Bush, we couldn't remember what the real one acted like. No, seriously. He's got the squint down perfectly. You're Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush with Will Ferrell at the Cort Theater.
They may be scowling in their promo posters, but Naughty by Nature are nothing but nice and grateful on their homepage. Fine line between naughty and nice, huh? Naughty by Nature with M.O.P. at B.B. King Blues Club.

Apollo Heights have collaborated with TV on the Radio, and their CD is cheekily called White Music for Black People. Wait, isn't music colorblind? Apollo Heights at Le Poisson Rouge.
Follow these instructions: "Drink once for each time the word 'change' is mentioned/the word 'hope' is mentioned/there's a cut-away to some regular person crying". Man, you're gonna be hammered! The Obam-guration Drinking Game!… at any given bar or household.
2009 has barely begun and Animal Collective have already eclipsed the music scene with their epic album. Animal Collective at Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom.
The Vivian Girls are like the female counter-part to the Crystal Stilts (one of 'em even used to be in the Stilts). They've been ubiquitous and buzzed-about and it's lucky for you they play Brooklyn venues just about every other week. Oh, and Fucked Up will be on hand, so you know it's gonna get cra-ray-zee.Vivian Girls with Fucked Up at the Market Hotel.
The musicians from the New Pornographers are fantastic and free shows are the best. It's a double win. A.C. Newman with Nicole Atkins at Virgin Megastore Union Square.
