This fall’s official soundtrack to nostalgia is out now: New “supergroup” Them Crooked Vultures, which includes former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, just unleashed “New Fang,” their first single off their self-titled debut album, on to the internet. For nostalgia of a different sort: Ian McKellen (that’s “Sir Ian” to you) just got an award for his distinguished career as an interpreter of Shakespeare. Jane Campion‘s Bright Star just scored four nominations for the 2009 British Independent Film Awards, one of which is sponsored by a cosmetics company (bonus!). Junot Díaz is headlining a London festival of Ibero-American literature. OsGemeos have anexhibition at a museum in Norway that is 100% bizarre-which is to say, totally normal for OsGemeos. Lucrecia Martel is on the Tiger Awards committee at theRotterdam International Film Festival. Susan Rothenberg has a show at the O’Keeffe Museum opening in January. And vertiginous to the last, Richard Serra has two new walk-through sculptures at Gagosian (the exhibition opens on the 27th).
