Greensky Bluegrass - Highline Ballroom
April 17, 2013 - New York

If you're familiar with bluegrass music, then you're tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They're also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. This quintet from Michigan has been staying up late at all the coolest festivals and stopping to play your favorite clubs and theaters across America for 11 years now. Nearly 175 shows per year has prepared them for the rigorous task of continuity. Greensky Bluegrass isn't slowing down. They're coming to your town to help you party down. Yeah. Really. Like you never thought possible. At the start of the millennium, some of these guys met, then they met more guys. They thought Greensky was a clever name for a bluegrass band. Fast forward to 2011 when they recorded their fourth studio record, called Handguns. Among them, words like, proud, killer, and damn right! have been spoken in regards to the music of Handguns. While they all may be accurate, we hope you'll find far more than you expected, hell - even more than we expected contained in this piece work that may well come to define one of 21st Century Americas hardest working musical ensembles.

Opera Dolce presents concert homage to the great Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Gomes - Christ and St Stephen's Church
April 18, 2013 - New York

Opera Dolce, a New York based opera company under the direction of Andrew Costello and Pamela Lloyd, will pay homage to Antonio Carlos Gomes (1836 – 1896) with two performances of a concert planned for April, 2013 in Manhattan. Brazilian native Antonio Carlos Gomes was the only non-European to be successful as an operatic composer in Italy during the golden age of opera. Most of his works premiered at La Scala and were performed at major opera houses throughout Europe and South America. Giuseppe Verdi praised Gomes’ music, proclaiming him a ‘musical genius.’ Gomes was arguably the greatest South American composer of the 19th Century. The Brazilian maestro’s music enjoyed great popularity during his lifetime. Today his work has been virtually forgotten outside of Latin America. The last US production of a Gomes opera occurred approximately twenty years ago, when the Washington National Opera staged Il Guarany for Gomes aficionado Placido Domingo. Opera Dolce believes that Gomes’ music should be performed much more frequently to win the recognition it deserves. The concerts will feature highlights from five of Gomes’ major operas: Fosca, Il Guarany, Salvator Rosa, Lo Schiavo and Maria Tudor. Some of these pieces will be receiving their North American premiere. Renowned Brazilian pianist Samuel Kardos will accompany six singers. The Brazilian Endowment for the Arts (BEA) will host a post-performance reception on April 16th at their gallery next door to the performance space. Tickets may be purchased for $25.00 at the door. Concerts dates, times and locations: April 16, 2013, 7:30 PM, EM Lee Concert Hall,244 East 52nd Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, NYC. April 18, 2013, 8:00 PM, Christ and St. Stephen’s Church, 122 West 69th Street, between Broadway and Columbus Avenue, NYC.

Case study #2: Exhibition - The Robot Exhibit - Museum of Arts & Design
April 18, 2013 - New York

The Robot Exhibit: History, Fantasy, and Reality (1984) at MAD (then the American Craft Museum) was one of the first comprehensive surveys of the history of robots, cyborgs, automatons, and androids. A visionary exhibit that attracted a record number of visitors, MAD presented robots as a multidisciplinary phenomenon, a confluence of craft and science. But beyond the myth of the robot, here were the roots of a revolution -- automatization, new production methods, and even 3D printing and rapid prototyping -- that would take the design world by storm in the following twenty years. How can exhibitions forecast future trends in design, from concepts to manufacturing, funding and consuming? Superscript's programmatic counterpoint to their project On Display brings together the public with voices in the design and architecture world to comment on these topics, and thus activate free posters displayed in the exhibition space of After the Museum.

Shuggie Otis - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 18, 2013 - New York

Shuggie Otis, for those not familiar with him through David Byrne's heroic disinterment of his 1974 album, Inspiration Information or through his authorship of the wonderful Strawberry Letter 23 - is the son of legendary R `n' B bandleader Johnny Otis. A musical prodigy he was playing with his father by the time he was 13 and from the word go displayed an uncanny mastery of the blues guitar. He wrote "Strawberry Letter 23," a gold single for the Brothers Johnson that went to number one R&B and number five pop in spring 1977. George Johnson was dating one of Otis' cousins who gave him a copy of Otis' 1971 Epic LP, Freedom Flight. Immediately, Johnson liked "Ice Cold Daydream" and "Strawberry Letter 23." The duo recommended it to their producer, Quincy Jones, and recorded a cover version that sticks pretty close to Otis' original version of "Strawberry Letter 23." By the time "Strawberry Letter 23" was a million-seller, Otis had been dropped from Epic three years earlier. The 24-year-old guitar virtuoso was sure he would get a new record deal. Ironically, the record executives would be impressed that he wrote a million-selling song, but they weren't interested in anything else he'd done. Disillusioned, Otis dropped out of the music business before returning to it in the late `80s, playing with his father, Johnny Otis' band. Later the axiom "good things come to those who wait" took effect. Spurred by sales and critical kudos of reissues of his 1974 Epic LP, Inspiration Information, from Sony Music Special Projects and David Byrne's Luaka Bop label, Otis performed "Strawberry Letter 23" on May 2001 appearances on Conan O'Brien and David Letterman. Though in recent years he has chosen to remain out of the spotlight, he continues to be revered through musical circles, as evidenced by his 2009 performance with Mos Def in LA. Feb 2013 sees the re-release of Inspiration Information via Sony distribution, complete as a double album package with a set of sought after unreleased masters. He will perform his first live dates outside America in over 20 years.
