In her latest book, Yokohama Threeway: And Other Small Shames, she examines the minor embarrassments of her life with wry humor and her signature sharp-tongued style. Fellow comedian and memoirist Michael Ian Black (author of You’re Not Doing It Right), will join Beth to talk about the process—and the occasional terrors—of turning real-life stories into writing.

Exploring The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records - New York Public Library-Salomon Room
November 19, 2013 - New York

Exploring The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records: Featuring Jack White, Dean and Scott Blackwood, Daphne A. Brooks, and Greil Marcus *Doors will open at 6 p.m. for program attendees to view a special exhibition of materials from The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts' Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound curated specifically for this event. Paramount Records was founded on a modest proposition: produce records as cheaply as possible, recording whatever talent was available. Over its lifetime (1917-1932), the label compiled a dizzying array of performers still unrivaled to this day, spanning early jazz titans (Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller), blues masters (Charley Patton, Skip James), American divas (Ma Rainey, Ethel Waters), gospel, vaudeville, hillbilly, and more. But how did a Wisconsin chair company, run by men with little knowledge of their audience or the music business, build one of the greatest musical rosters ever assembled under one roof? How and why were its fortunes directly linked to the Great Migration, and what is Paramount's legacy today? LIVE from the NYPL presents an evening of musical exploration and conversation, unpacking the label's rich history and celebrating the first volume of The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932 , an epic omnibus jointly released by Jack White's Third Man Records and Revenant Records. The program features a discussion with White, Revenant's Dean Blackwood, and Princeton professor and author Daphne A. Brooks, and close examinations of recordings from Paramount's catalogue by authors Greil Marcus and Scott Blackwood. Plus a special exhibition of artifacts from The New York Public Library's Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound curated specifically for this occasion will be on display before and after the event, exclusively for attendees. By purchasing tickets to this LIVE from the NYPL event, attendees will receive a free 78 RPM record specially pressed for the event from Third Man and Revenant Records featuring two fiery sermons from the Paramount catalog. Ticket purchasers will also automatically be entered into a raffle to win the first volume of The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932.

Doreen Taylor : Stripped - Don't Tell Mama
November 19, 2013 - New York

DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED, an elegantly revealing evening of unplugged songs and stories from her breakout album, Magic, brings the award-winning recording artist to the heart of New York’s theater district Tuesday, Nov. 19 at Don’t Tell Mama, 343 W 46th Street (betw. 8th & 9th Aves.). Show time is 7 p.m. Seating begins 6:30 p.m. Tickets and reservations available NOW at www.donttellmamanyc.com, www.doreentaylormusic.com or by calling 212.757.0788 daily after 4 p.m- Space is extremely limited!! Magic, the album, showcases Doreen’s talents as not only a vocalist, but as a songwriter and musician. She prides herself on the raw, emotional vibe of her lyrics and abilities to engage an audience, and DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED affords her the ultimate opportunity at a world-famous entertainment destination. Weaving acoustic renditions of songs from Magic with narration and story-telling about the making of the album and the woman who crafted it, the show is a rare look into the journey of a fiercely independent artist. Backed by acoustic musicians in a subdued setting, DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED offers Doreen’s unique fusion of soothing vocals, engaging and upbeat showmanship and homegrown country-rock roots in an understated homage to her Broadway roots. It’s not often that a country-rock singer-songwriter does a cabaret-style show off Broadway. DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED is a true testament to Doreen’s ability as an artist to continually transcend musical boundaries. She does just that on Magic, which yielded the YouTube hit “Last Call (for Alcohol)” with country comfort and, as the Buffalo News points out, “is notable for the diversity of its content. Taylor can do straight-up contemporary country but she is known to tackle standards like ‘Summertime’ and ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ with equal conviction.” The Huffington Post calls her “an excellent performing artist to keep your eyes on."

Aloud and Cold Blood Club - Bowery Electric
November 19, 2013 - New York

Aloud and Cold Blood Club will perform on Tuesday, November 19th 6:30pm at Bowery Electric in New York, New York. It’s so comically familiar, it must be the opening line of an old joke: a couple of wide-eyed 19-year-old kids, who believe a bad idea should never stop you, go on to start a rock band. But here we are, a decade and several foolish ideas later, and Boston-area rock n’ roll band Aloud shows no signs of slowing down. Their new 7-inch single “You Will Know” has made waves in New England. Aloud is currently in the studio with producer Charles Neman (Future Bible Heroes, Magnetic Fields) and Benny Grotto recording their fourth full-length record, It’s Got To Be Now. Limerice Magazine says Cold Blood Club’s single “Goodbye To All That” has “all the features to be the next hit.” Starting off as a studio project and evolving into an eight -piece band, Cold Blood Club has developed into a powerful presence. Energetic and bombastic only begin to explain their live stage presence. Moving seamlessly between dance/synth and bluesy rock, these talented musicians are ones to keep an eye on.

Leaving the Bubble - Healing reDefined - Times Square
Through November 20, 2013 - New York

Shift all your paradigms about healing. "Leaving the Bubble" is a 4-day life-changing seminar by Hannah Pilnick. We all live inside bubbles and see the world through them. Inside the bubbles there are all our life experiences and those of our ancestors. These past experiences color these bubbles and therefore the way we see and experience the world around us. We are affected by these past experiences physically, emotionally, and mentally. Hannah Pilnick, therapist & international speaker, discovered that when we perceive an event that occurred in our lives as negative, the experience is embedded in our body as negative energy. This energy can sit for years in the body and can one day manifest as physical, emotional or mental suffering.

Then we want them to lean forward and get swept up in the story in a way they've never seen before. Three Day Hangover?s inaugural production, The HAMLET Project: Summer in the City, enjoyed rave reviews, a completely sold out run and extension and, most importantly, some of the feistiest, most engaged and raucous audiences Midtown has ever seen! Past Praise for Three Day Hangover - "During my fifth beer, 'The Hamlet Project' got even funnier. That?s impressive considering the show, billed as a theatrical drinking event, was already amusing during beers one through four. ...the cast members? energy is infectious.... ...the show even offers insights into the text, using the original words in an unusual context to elicit unexpected reactions." - Ken Jaworowski, The New York Times "By the final scene on Monday, about 50 audience members were standing and cheering, surrounded by empty pitchers, shot glasses and cups of sangria. ...A return to the days of the groundlings.... I drank along with every boozy cue, and felt quite the midsummer night?s drunk by the end." - Tim Donnelly, New York Post "The cast of The HAMLET Project is so much fun, they each give performances that are truthful and nuanced while also managing to have the audience spilling their beer in laughter. Three Day Hangover really nailed this one." - Victoria Teague, New York Theatre Review "...The HAMLET Project orchestrates an alternative universe in which a college Shakespeare Club hosts the best frat party in town. Without too many alterations to the original text The HAMLET Project manages to make Hamlet absolutely hilarious....if you?re game for a different take on Shakespeare ? accompanied by drinking ? this is a lot of fun." - Maxamoo "This is very creative, original, and great acting!" - Dr. Joy Browne, Radio America

Yisrael K. Feldsott - Cries, Chants, Shouts and Whispers: Songs of the Forgotten - Studio Vendome
Through November 23, 2013 - New York

“Cries, Chants, Shouts and Whispers: Songs of the Forgotten,” the first New York exhibition of paintings by Bay Area artist Yisrael K. Feldsott will be on view at Studio Vendome and Studio Vendome Projects — two, new New York galleries — from October 16th through Nov 23rd, 2013. Feldsott’s early works from the 1970s will be on view at Studio Vendome Projects at 30 Grand Street, while the larger recent paintings will be featured at Studio Vendome’s main gallery at 330 Spring Street. Feldsott’s paintings defy easy categorization. The work, produced over 4 decades, was born from a life on the fringes of our culture, from interacting with drug addicts, beat poets, and Rock musicians to becoming an advocate of indigenous peoples and working with tribal leaders in South America and Mexico. This exhibit highlights Feldsott’s incredible artistic journey and showcases Peter Selz’s personal selections of Feldsott’s visceral and prolific body of work. “When I first saw Feldsott’s work in a San Francisco gallery, I was just astonished,” said curator Peter Selz, “I hadn’t seen anything like that before — and I’ve seen a lot! I had not seen anything quite that magical. The work really made you stop in your tracks. There’s a quality of mystery and, at the same time, it is beautifully executed.” In the 1970s, Feldsott had the distinction of being the youngest artist to ever display his works at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and seemed destined for stardom. He was one of the first artists to link the modern art world with the grittiness of graffiti — art that was deemed “without merit” in the early seventies. Sandra Roos, a noted art historian in the Bay Area, said of his role in that movement, “Feldsott was like the Matisse of the (then emerging) punk art scene.” But Feldsott quickly became disillusioned with the hyper-political art scene. Issues of censorship and commercialism drove him to stop showing his work publicly for two decades. There will be an opening reception at both galleries on Thursday, October 17th from 6-9 pm. At 7 pm there will be a discussion at Studio Vendome on Spring Street with Feldsott and Peter Selz, the exhibition’s curator and former Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture of MoMA, New York and Founding Director of the Berkeley Art Museum. In 2002, after more than two decades of refusing to show his work publicly, the curator of the Museo Guayasamín in Quito, Ecuador, convinced Feldsott to return to the art world he had abandoned with a major museum exhibition. During the last decade, Feldsott has continued to show in San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Los Angeles. However, “Cries, Chants, Shouts and Whispers: Songs of the Forgotten” is the first exhibition to travel to multiple cities. It began its journey in August in San Francisco at the non-profit Meridian Gallery before traveling on to the Studio Vendome galleries in New York’s SoHo. This exhibition is also a homecoming for Selz, whose groundbreaking museum exhibitions are legendary. The show is managed and presented by Rediscovered Masters. An illustrated, 86-page catalogue accompanies the exhibition with an insightful essay by art critic Robert C. Morgan. Morgan calls Feldsott “A born rebel, a pariah in search of his own standards. On another level, his point of view as an artist is not outside the parameters of recognized criteria that connoisseurs would choose to call significant. His paintings are less about art as a detached postmodern idea than about the artist’s uncanny mediumistic ability to simply allow works of art to evolve.” The essay also includes Selz’s extensive interview with the artist. “Cries, Chants, Shouts and Whispers” is all about eliciting primal reactions in the viewer and nothing about deciphering the jargon of art market insiders.
