Appetizer: This Year's New Yorker Festival

Filed under: New Yorker Festival   Tagged: , , , , ,

From Page Six:
HIGHLY eclectic is the best way to describe this year’s lineup for the eighth annual New Yorker Magazine Festival, set for Oct. 5-7. Among its components will be conversations with Steve Carell, Steve Martin, Bill Nighy and opera director Peter Sellars. Performers will include Fiona Apple, Rosanne Cash, Yo La Tengo and Iceland’s Sigur Ros. There’s also a panel discussion with TV masterminds Jenji Kohan (creator of “Weeds”), Ronald Moore (“Battlestar Galactica”), David Shore (“House”), David Simon (“The Wire”) and David Milch (“Deadwood”).
I can’t wait. The full lineup’s being announced on September 3. I forget everything that’s not in my gmail, otherwise known as my brain’s external hard drive, so I just signed up for the Festival Wire, which reminds you when tickets go on sale and sends you updates when they suddenly add new events, which does happen. The signup’s at the festive-al homepage.
