Clayton Patterson has created a series of five Sunday Salons for the BMW Guggenheim Lab. This week, join Jeremiah Newton, playwright and executor of the estate of Candy Darling—one of Andy Warhol’s superstars—as he shares anecdotes about Warhol’s Factory and its legacy. A native New Yorker, for the past 20 years Mr. Newton has served as the film industry liaison for New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. In 2009 he produced the feature-length documentary Beautiful Darling, which premiered at the Berlinale and at New Directors/New Films at Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He was also a writer of the 1996 indie I Shot Andy Warhol. His new play, StarDusk, is based on his experiences with Candy Darling, and takes place on closing night of a production of Tennessee Williams’ Small Craft Warnings. Newton is the recipient of the Hamptons International Film Festival’s 2010 Golden Starfish Award, and the prize for Best Documentary at the 2010 Chicago International Film Festival.

How does a Fashion Week show get any better than this? John Varvatos pulls the rabbit out of the hat. A free music show which started off with the extraordinary guitar virtuosity of Gary Clark Jr. and his band, followed by the headliner The Roots who pulled off a highly energised and incredible music performance. There was an unlimited supply of assorted vodka drinks, beer, or water- all free btw.

Yes there were the high end fashionista’s, the beautiful people, a cross-section of local music legends like Handsome Dick Manitoba frontman of the Punk band the Dictators and his lovely wife Zoe Hansen, Jesse Malin front man of St. Marks Social Club, but in the end the night was about the music, a good feeling vibe, and an acceptance and appreciation for all came through the door.
