Play reading
Red Room Theatre
KGB, 85 East 4th Street, 10:30 PM
A cold read of the Lawrence Krauser play. The Citrussexual is an adaptation of Krauser's Lemon, with some plot differences: Pat Field-styled, animated robot-fruit take the stage. OK, we’re lying…the actors may quite possibly be fruity, but they will be human. Pay What You Wish When You Leave… if only all events boasted such a confident payment system.

Art Event
Good/Bad Art Collective
383 South First Street, Williamsburg, Free
Info: 718 599 4962
Enjoy lines on a mirror outside of the comfort of your home at this one-off art event featuring a collection of recent works by individuals associated with the evidently hit-or-miss Good/Bad Art Collective. Participants include Karl Conrad, Heather Grace, Eric Graham, Carolyn Hestand, Martin Iles, Tim Kaminski, and Anke Sievers. Special midnight performance by Japanese design and electronic music group, Delaware. (In conjunction with Buzz Club: News from Japan at P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center.)

Friday & Saturday

Seemen Strap-on Art
Interactive Art Event
The Cave 58 Grand St b/w Kent & Wythe Avenue
Doors open at 8:30pm, suggested donation $5
Info: 718 388 6780
Get your mind out of the gutter. Seemen is a Survival Research Labrotory-style Art Group that creates interactive experiences via their explosive machine-robots. (Carbon-based life is sooo 20th Century). You’ll have rare opportunities to stand in a Ring of Fire and wear a "STRAP-ON FLAMETHROWER" while you control 20 foot bursts of fire jetting from your waist (not your ass). And, don’t pass up Kal's personal "MARTINI MIXER". (our pick for don’t-leave-home-without-it accessory of the year). As with all Brooklyn-type art crap, plenty of mulit-media stimuli and the intoxicants required to appreciate it, will undoubtedly be on hand.
