Until January 4, 2010, you can view the “Compass in Hand: Selections from The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawings Collection Exhibit” at the MOMA. The exhibit includes over 300 selections from The Judith Rothschild Foundation’s “extraordinary collection of over 2,500 contemporary works on paper,” the largest gift of drawings that the museum has ever received. Although the Times didn’t exactly give it a glowing review, “Compass in Hand” is certainly worth checking out, even if only this small online slide show.
But if you’re looking for a different sort of directional indicator, don’t fret. Brooklyn-based electro-pop/synth group Red Wire Black Wire has the remedy in the form of the title track from their EP Compass, which was released by Tough Customer Records back in November. They have a pretty extensive tour schedule, slated to start in September, coinciding with the release of their first full-length, Robots & Roses that will take them all over the U.S. and even to Russia. They will be back in the bk at The Studio @ Webster Hall on October 23. Check out their first official video, for “Compass,” below and mark your fall calendars.
