    It’s Friday and that means Senior Arts Editor Mark Wigmore shares with his top picks for your arts and entertainment weekend ahead.


    JAZZ FM91 2ND ANNUAL VINYL SALE

    Vinyl continues to be the anomaly of the music industry thanks to collectors and audiophiles who have kept the discs spinning over the last decade. It is the lone format on the sales upswing over the last decade. With that in mind, wax aficionados are going to love the 2nd Annual Jazz FM91 Vinyl Sale happening on Saturday. Thousands of great records are up for grabs in all genres, but with a nod to jazz. The needle drops at 10am and we wrap at 3pm. JAZZ.FM91 is at 4 Pardee Ave., Unit 100, in the heart of Liberty Village. 100% of proceeds from this year's fundraiser will support JAZZ.FM91!!!

If you don’t know his contemporary pieces, maybe you have seen his films like Before Night Falls, and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Director Pappi Corsicato looks at his beginnings in Texas, his New York rise and his eventual superstardom as the leading figure of the Neo-Expressionism movement. The doc features interviews with friends and colleagues like Laurie Anderson, Al Pacino, Willem Dafoe and Jeff Koons.Julian Schnabel: A Private Portrait runs through Thursday
