The Details Cultural Agenda: Iggy and the Stooges, Soundsuits, and Gwyneth Paltrow Dies

Tuesday

Call it new-new wave, Alt 'n Blues, indie soul-pop. The sounds coming from Twin Shadow these days are hard to classify, but they're sure nice to listen to, and you can catch them tonight at Maxwell's in New Jersey.

Who says a 16-year-old band can't play the most youthful music you've heard all summer? See Les Savy Fav at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight.

Wednesday

Sit back with the Soft Pack and their dueling punk guitars at L.A.'s Detroit Bar.

Soak in the ghostlike and fantastical images of painter Christian Curiel at his exhibit "No Hay Olvido/ There's No Forgetting" at New York's Hendershot Gallery.

People talk about being punk before punk was cool, but only Iggy and the Stooges were punk before punk existed. Catch them L.A.'s Hollywood Palladium.

Thursday

Nick Cave (the artist, not the singer) presents his famous "soundsuits" at his "Ever-After" exhibit at the Jack Shainman Gallery, opening today in Manhattan.

Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Winslet suffer through a modern-day Black Plague in Steven Soderbergh's Contagion.

Saturday

Two days, twelve artists, one hell of a time. Hit Chicago's A.V. Fest to see bands like Tokyo Police Club, the Thermals, Archers of Loaf, and many, many more.

When we caught up with London's Jim Jones Revue, it was clear that these rockers had heavy style, heavier music, and the heaviest hair cream. See them tonight at New York's Music Hall of Williamsburg.
