Thursday Events: Iceland Film Fest, Last Shadow Puppets, Justice, MGMT, The Man Who Laughs, and O'Death
Getting cold out there, hunh? No one knows how to warm up a chilly night like Icelanders. A colorful festival of the best new shorts from that very artistic isle should be just the thing for this weather. Package Deals at Scandinavia House. (Pictured)
The Man Who Laughs is a German silent thriller whose protagonist, a creepy fellow whose face is paralyzed into a grin, inspired the Joker. Wash off the resulting chills with free booze. The Man Who Laughs at Walter Reed.
A supergroup for the Pitchfork set, Last Shadow Puppets features Final Fantasy and members of Simian Mobile Disco, Arctic Monkeys, and Rascals. Last Shadow Puppets at The Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom.
The eerie folk tunes of O'Death are perfect for the Season of the Witch. O'Death at The Music Hall of Williamsburg.
What? You've still managed to miss MGMT? Well, tonight they're playing with no wave progenitors Suicide. No excuses. MGMT and Suicide at Webster Hall. (6pm)
