Nick Cave, meet Nick Cave
Nick and Nick

New York City this week is a slightly confusing place for Nick Cave fans, as there are two with that name doing noted public performances this week. Nick Cave the musician is in town with The Bad Seeds for three shows at Beacon Theatre, the first of which was last night (3/28). Nick Cave the visual artist is also here presenting his "Heard•NY" piece at Grand Central Terminal this week with 60 dancers from the Alvin Ailey School performing as 30 colorful, fringed "horses" which happens 11 AM and 2PM through Sunday (3/31). We were certainly confused.

Worlds collided when the two met this week, as evidenced on artist Nick Cave's Facebook (which you can see above). We're not sure if this was taken at Grand Central or Beacon Theatre though. We're still confused! Freaky Friday indeed.

For more on "Heard•NY," check out a NY Times video below.

I would say that NYC is a confusing place this week for people who are NOT nick cave fans. If you're a nick cave fan (either one of em), you should probably know the difference right?

NME ran an article the other day thinking the musician put on the Grand Central installation. They quickly took it down.

Yeah, this week is only confusing to people from 1991 who don't have access to Google. Them and the big brains at BV who post without doing a cursory 3-second fact-check.

Another thing that's not confusing at all that BV still managed to screw up is this, from the HEARD-NY webiste: "Daily performances will take place at 11am and 2pm." That means performances happen twice a day at 11am and 2pm, NOT 11am-2pm as you wrote.

NYC needs more nick cage and less nick cave

What NYC needs is a good $2 room and a good $2 broom
