Wet Willie CD Release Show - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
March 23, 2012 - New York
Wet Willie, after The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, was the hardest-rocking of the Southern bands to come to national attention in the early '70s. For seven years, from 1971 until 1978, the group produced an enviable array of albums awash in good-time music, rollicking high-energy blues-rock, and white Southern soul. The band had a Top Ten hit with "Keep On Smilin'" and several other chart toppers, including "Weekend," "Airport," and "Dixie Rock," and a lot of admirers. In contrast to The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie was a band closer in spirit to Booker T. & the M.G.'s, much more steeped in sweaty, good-time R&B than the blues-rock of the label mates The Allman Brothers Band or the country-rock of the Marshall Tucker Band.

Ott - Highline Ballroom
March 23, 2012 -
British producer Ott got his start working as an engineer in several studios around North London. Working obsessively, 18 hours a day, seven days a week for almost 10 years, he began developing the skills that would eventually allow him to work with artists who inspired his foray into music in the first place -- Brian Eno, The Orb, Youth, African Head Charge, Steve Hillage, and On-U-Sound.
Buoyed by the success of this initial release, the following year Ott gathered together and released his earlier sonic experiments as the album Blumenkraft (2003), which was also very well received and attracted a great many listeners around the world. The next few years passed in a whirl of gigs, remixes, and collaborative projects. During this time, Ott travelled the world, got married, welcomed his daughter Daisy to the world, and released his third and fourth albums, Skylon (2008) and Mir (2011).

Musical Performance: Tunisian Vocalist Sonia M'Barek Sings Andalusian Muwashahat - Proshanky Auditorium, CUNY Graduate Center
March 23, 2012 - Manhattan
Tunisian Vocalist Sonia M'Barek in a Concert of Andalusian Muwashahat
Hanna Khoury - violin
Kinan Idnawi - oud
Kinan Abou-afach - cello
Hicham Chami - qanun
Hafez El Ali Kotain - percussion
"Sonia M'Barek began singing maluf (traditional Tunisian court music) as a child under the tutelage of her grandmother. Its affinity with like styles in Algeria, Libya and Morocco voices the music's historical origins in southern Andalusia, before the Reconquest drove Muslims and Jews from Spain in 1492. Many of the exiles settled in the medinas of North Africa, bringing their musical heritage. Maluf was and remains primarily a male domain, making Sonia M'Barek a rare female soloist of the genre. She trained in the Tunis conservatory, and has performed widely in Tunisia and the neighboring Maghreb. While rooted in the traditional maluf repertoire, M'Barek steps beyond it by delving into the sharqi or cabaret music (the so-called "belly dance") of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. She also pens many of her own compositions, and collaborates with younger artists who repudiate the commercial formulas of popular pan-Arabic music. M'Barek possesses a smoky, soul-piercing voice that resonates with the euphoric, transcendental quality singers strive to project and listeners esteem - "tarab", in Arabic. This studio recording deftly pairs M'Barek with a small classical chamber orchestra (takht) of oud, kementché, ney, qanoun, violin, violoncello and percussion. The result is a passionate contemporary exposition of the Iberian, North African and Levantine musical nexus, one audibly rooted in medieval Andalusia." - Michael Stone - Rootsworld, in review of Takht.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will start the year with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, which "honors performers who have made contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording." That event will take place Saturday, February 11 during Grammy Week in Los Angeles and the group will be mentioned on the Sunday, February 12 national TV broadcast.
"It?s shaping up to be a great year," says BUTCH TRUCKS, who co-founded the band in 1969 with GREGG ALLMAN, drummer JAIMOE, guitarist DUANE ALLMAN, bassist BERRY OAKLEY and guitarist DICKEY BETTS. "We just wanted to make music that was honest and play it for friends, which is pretty much what we've done. It's an honor to be able to be recognized like this."

The Yeats Game - Producers' Club
Through March 25, 2012 - New York
American Storyboard presents The Yeats Game, a farce of improbable darkness written by John J. Ronan. Kathy Richter directs a cast of four including Toby Wherry, Susan Stout, Jennifer Silverstein and Lucius Wall. Performances for The Yeats Game will be held at The Producers’ Club, 358 West 44th Street in NYC for twenty-four performances beginning Wednesday, February 29 to Sunday, March 25, 2012.
The Yeats Game is a farce about middle-age choices and their ridiculous consequences. At a funeral, as two frisky couples contemplate a friend’s fatal, love-nest heart attack, they flash back to their own recent snowed-in weekend at a mountain cabin. There, a board game designed for age-hating Boomers leads to tangled romance as the old friends explore love, lust, marriage and mischief. Just as guilt prompts confession, and all things point to reform, maturity and reluctant virtue, the play’s close tells us that virtue is a weak motivator, immaturity has its advantages - and that the corpse is perhaps not so dead.
A comical, brainy look at the pre-geezer years, The Yeats Game was inspired by the poet's famous line: “Only two topics can be of the least interest to a serious and studious mood - sex and the dead.” The Yeats Game, which played to standing room only audiences at its World Premiere in Boston, is a booze-, Viagra-, dice-driven romp.
The Yeats Game is produced by American Storyboard. Director: Kathy Richter; Playwright: John J. Ronan; Sound Designer: Timothy Dahl; Production Stage Manager: Keri Taylor; Assistant Stage Manager: Kristin Dwyer; Publicist: Paul Siebold/Off Off PR.
The Yeats Game plays for twenty-four performances from Wednesday, February 29 to Sunday, March 25, 2012, with performances Wednesdays & Thursdays at 7:30pm, Saturdays & Sundays at 8pm, and matinee performances on Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at www.smarttix.com or by calling 212-868-4444. For more information, please visit www.theyeatsgame.org.
The runtime for The Yeats Game is 1:30, with no intermission.

Brian Bress: Status Report - New Museum of Contemporary Art
Through March 25, 2012 - New York
This exhibition, the latest presentation in the New Museum's 'Stowaways' series, will be the New York premier of Brian Bress's Status Report (2009). In Bress's low-tech video, humorous characters, all played by the artist, struggle with interpersonal relationships, the pursuit of intended goals, and the desire to communicate. Manipulating pictorial and sculptural conventions through fantastically hand-crafted sets and costumes that combine drawing, painting, and collage, Bress creates a disjunctive world where spaces of imagination and representation compete for equal footing. Brian Bress (b. 1975) lives and works in Los Angeles. His videos have been shown at ICA, Philadelphia; LAX Art, Los Angeles; Diverse Works, Houston; University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa; and Parrish Art Museum, South Hampton. His work was included in the comprehensive survey exhibition "California Video: Artists and Histories" presented at the Getty Museum in 2008. This is Bress's first New York museum presentation.

Any parent can choose to participate by registering as a consignor on the website www.begreensale.com or by coming by that weekend to shop and save money. A seasonal consignment event is a 4-day event where they set up as a store and parents from all over the area bring their new and gently-used children's items to the event site to be resold over the weekend. Items that are not sold are donated to local charities after the event is over. Special Pre-Sale for volunteers, consignors, and new parents. The mission of these sales is to offer parents a safe setting to buy and sell gently-used items allowing them to recoup money spent and put it back into the family budget. The second goal is to promote the idea of recycling kids items. Meredith and Alison want families to recycle, reuse, and reduce the impact that we have on the environment and these seasonal consignment sales promote this lifestyle along with allowing local families a way to give back to the community through the donation of their unsold items to local charities and programs. You can also utilize the event to fundraise for your group or organization by collecting items on behalf of your group and consigning them or having your proceeds go to your school or organization.

Sanja Ivekovic: Sweet Violence - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through March 26, 2012 - Manhattan
The first museum exhibition in the United States of the work of Sanja Ivekovic (b. 1949, Zagreb) covers four decades of the artist's remarkable career. A feminist, activist, and video pioneer, Ivekovic came of age in the post-1968 period, when artists broke free from mainstream institutional settings, laying the ground for a form of praxis antipodal to official art. Part of the generation known as the Nova Umjetnicka Praksa (New Art Practice), Ivekovic produced works of cross-cultural resonance that range from conceptual photomontages to video and performance.
This exhibition brings together a historic group of single-channel videos and media installations, including Sweet Violence (1974), Personal Cuts (1982), Practice Makes a Master (1982/2009), General Alert (Soap Opera) (1995), and Rohrbach Living Memorial (2005). Among the 100 photomontages featured in the exhibition is Ivekovic's celebrated series Double Life (1975-76), for which the artist juxtaposed pictures of herself culled from her private albums with commercial ads clipped from the pages of women's magazines.
While in the 1970s Ivekovic probed the persuasive qualities of mass media and its identity-forging potential, after 1990--following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the disintegration of Yugoslavia, and the birth of a new nation--she focused on the transformation of reality from socialist to post-socialist political systems. Ivekovic offers a fascinating view into the official politics of power, gender roles, and the paradoxes inherent in society's collective memory. The exhibition will be accompanied by a major publication.
