SPARE BEATS: Happenings Near You

Spare Beats is back with loads of fun happenings in a city near you somewhere on this planet. It’s always fun to trove my city streets, plumb the web, twitter, FB or nag friends for what’s happening in design, fashion, art, urbanism, product design or makers tinkering with technology, or anything that holds my fleeting busy eyes.

The Austrian Pop-Up Store opens this Wednesday, October 5, running through October 19 at the Openhouse Gallery, 201 Mulberry Street in NYC. While browsing around looking at the stunning art and architecture, and listening to classical music and if you’re crazed for sweets stop by the Austrian Delicatessen section for some tasty treats from the Vienna Cookie CompanyOh did I mention Vienna Cookie Company is owned my good friend Heidi Riegler. For listing of more pop-up events from book reading,films or wine tastings check out: Austria Pop-Up

Double Exhibition Nick Cave/ Ever-After, newest body of work now showing at the Jack Shainman Gallery, and “For Now” features his Soundsuits is showing concurrently at the Mary Boone Gallery. Francesca Granata wrote an insightful review on Nick Cave’s show, which opened during Fashion Week in NYC. Granata boasted Nick Cave’s new show were more interesting than Fashion Week. I tend to agree with Francesca Granata , but perhaps I’m just a little bias. Both shows run until November 22, so check them out I guarantee you’ll walk away smiling.  For more read
