The Day | ‘Occupiers’ ID Pepper-Spray Officer

Fab FestMeredith A. Bennett-Smith A performance at FAB! Festival on Saturday.

Good morning, East Village.

Last night, new information surfaced regarding the protests that ran from Wall Street to Union Square on Saturday. The Daily News reports that the hackers collective known as Anonymous has identified the officer who pepper-sprayed a demonstrator as Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna. The group also targeted Mr. Bologna with an “ominous but vague online warning.” Meanwhile, City Room reporter Corey Kilgannon toured the demonstrating group’s encampment in Zuccotti Park.

Ken Jaworowski of The Times catches “From Rags to Riches” at the Metropolitan Playhouse and finds a play that is “by turns slapdash, bewildering, rousing and ridiculous.” For those whose appetite was whet by actors Erin Leigh Schmoyer and Tod Mason’s preview performance at the FAB! Festival this past Saturday, the show will be running through October 16th.

If experimental dance is more your thing, Gia Kourlas of The Times reviews Brazilian artist Michel Groisman’s current show “Porta das Mãos” (“Door of Hands”) at Performance Space 122. Parents shouldn’t be discouraged by Mr. Groisman’s “Saw”-like appearance, as the show actively encourages family attendance.

“How to Make It in America” returns to the airwaves on October 2nd and HBO has released a music video to promote the newest season of the Lower East Side-based show. Q-Tip, Rahzel, Mark Wahlberg and the well-coifed Justin Bieber turn out to pay tribute to the wonder that is Luis Guzman.

Hiroyuki Kurokami, a hairdresser from Osaka who frequents various shops in the East Village, got a shout out yesterday from the Wall Street Journal blog Heard on the Runway. The punk aesthetic has never been so expensive.

According to the New York Post, East Village resident and NYU teacher Cynthia Wright is still recovering after being blindsided by a cyclist on East Third Street and Avenue A. If you see something, say something.

Speaking of which, a EV Grieve reader heard bullets flying over 13th Street and Avenue B around 9 p.m. last night: “One bullet flew over my head within I would say 10 feet of me.” Did you hear the same?
