NY1's weekly segment "Your Weekend Starts Now" shows entertaining picks for great things to do this weekend all around the city. NY1's Frank DiLella filed the following report.
Jazz and Colors
Celebrate the changing fall foliage with fun jazz music in Central Park on Saturday with "Jazz and Colors." Thirty groups of musicians will be set up throughout the park, playing music from noon to 4 p.m. Check out jazzandcolors.com for a downloadable map of where to find them.
Feel the love at the Whitney with "Beyond LOVE," an exhibit featuring the work of pop-art icon Robert Indiana. The exhibit is the first major American retrospective of Indiana, whose work is known for being bold and visually dazzling.
Django Reinhardt New York Festival
Hear the sounds of legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt at Birdland now through Sunday at the Django Reinhardt New York Festival. Guitarist and Reinhardt look-alike Dorado Schmitt and other musicians will offer new interpretations of "hot-swing" jazz.
Vietnam: The Real War: A Photographic History from the Associated Press
Head to the Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea for "Vietnam: The Real War: A Photographic History from the Associated Press." The exhibition features more than 100 powerful images, posters, periodicals and more from the AP's Saigon bureau from the 1960s and '70s.
Rockers on Broadway 20
Finally, keep the weekend going on Monday with Rockers on Broadway 20. The annual event celebrates its 20th year with some of Broadway's finest talent performing the best of rock, pop and soul from the past two decades. Two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff and rocker Pete Townshend of The Who will be honored.
