Jaimoe's Jasssz Band (founding member of the Allman Brothers Band) - Iridium
May 24, 2017 - New York

Legendary drummer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band play American music. They combine elements of Jazz, Blues, Rock-n-Roll, and R&B into a unique blend that captures the spirit and stirs the soul. Their repertoire ranges from new interpretations of classic tunes, as well as original songs that are classics in the making. Jaimoe's Jasssz Band features Jaimoe – drums, Junior Mack – guitar and vocals, Dave Stoltz – bass, Bruce Katz – keyboards, and some of the finest horn players of our time, including Paul Lieberman – sax, flute, and piccalo, Kris Jensen – sax and Reggie Pittman – trumpet. Jaimoe, man of many names, and one of the original six band members, has combined forces with fellow drummer and percussionist Butch Trucks in a million subtle, driving, playful, and energizing ways to keep the music on track and flowing. Jaimoe himself contributes the following biographical insights: This is Jaimoe. No, I did not play at Monterey. I played with Otis Redding 4/18/66 through 9/5/66 in the band that did "Otis – Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go". I joined that band a week after that record was recorded. A very good friend of mine, a very good sax player and a hell of an organizer, Donald "Cadillac" Henry, was a great reason for me getting that break and a lot of others, right up to the fact of the reason I was in Macon was because Donald told me to go to Macon. Phil Walden was putting a recording studio in Macon which was Capricorn Records. Phil Walden and Otis Redding had a company called Redwal Music.

After Stonewall - Museum of the City of New York
May 24, 2017 - East Harlem

Trans people were at the forefront of the 1969 uprising at Greenwich Village's Stonewall Inn, but their stories have not always been central in film representations of LGBT life in the city. T.V. Transvestite (60 minutes, 1982) captures a fierce House of LaBeija Ball thrown at a Harlem Bingo Hall. Considered "lost" and not screened in public for over two decades, the film shows legends Pepper LaBeija, Dorian Corey, and Sugar in the period before voguing and the advent of AIDS. A stirring example of how queer focused and produced film has long flourished in NYC.

'68 w/ Listener and The Homeless Gospel Choir - The Studio at Webster Hall
May 24, 2017 - New York

(Alternative Rock) In Humor and Sadness, the debut album from '68, demonstrates the loud beauty of alarming simplicity. A guy bashing his drums, another dude wielding a guitar like a percussive, blunt weapon while howling into a mic somehow manages to sound bigger and brasher than the computerized bombast of every six-piece metal band. A splash of roots, a soulful yearning for mid century Americana and the fiery passion of post punk ferocity rampages over a record of earnestly forceful tracks like a runaway locomotive. Josh Scogin wasn't out of elementary school when the Flat Duo Jets laid their first album down on two tracks in a garage. But the scrappy band's spirit of raw power, punchy delivery, tried-and-true rhythms and urgent sense of immediacy is alive and well in '68.

Ain Gordon with Josh Quillen Pick Up Performance Co(s) - Baryshnikov Arts Center, John Cage & Merce Cunningham Studio
Through May 24, 2017 - New York

Radicals in Miniature (World Premiere) “Ain Gordon haunts the margins of history…conjur[ing] the sort of distant lives that don’t make it into textbooks, processed into oblivion by what he calls history’s ‘ruthless editing machine.’” - The New York Times Radicals in Miniature is a series of textual-sonic odes to personal icons of 20th century “alternative” culture that lost their toehold on immortality and (in the pre-Internet era) their place in public memory. Conjuring years between 1967’s Summer Of Love (not everyone’s “love”) and 1982/83, when The New York Times finally published the word ”AIDS,” Radicals is performed by 3-time Obie Award winner Ain Gordon and S? Percussion's Josh Quillen, theatrically annotating our cultural record via alternative requiems to the undersung: punk drummer David Hahn, dance reveler Elaine Shipman, club performer John Sex, disco artist Sylvester, and more. Radicals in Miniature follows two prior collaborations from the work’s co-creators: Where (we) Live (2012) and A Gun Show (2016)—both directed by Gordon and performed by the acclaimed ensemble S? Percussion. In Radicals, Gordon makes his first stage appearance since the acclaimed Off-Broadway production Spalding Gray: Stories Left To Tell. Radicals in Miniature was created in collaboration with dramaturge Talvin Wilks. Lighting design is by Jennifer Tipton. Projections are by Ed Fitzgerald and Nick Ryckert.

DEAD STARS, BIG BLISS, FAT HEAVEN, DEBBIE DOWNER - Sunnyvale
May 24, 2017 - New York

******Big Bliss formed in mid 2015 when brothers Cory (Christines, Party of Helicopters) and Tim Race (Russenorsk) began collaborating on a project with the aims of tapping into shared influences from 70's and 80's punk and post-punk. Despite Cory having a huge musical influence on Tim as kids, this is their first project together. The two collectively share about 25 years playing in separate bands. They recruited local songwriter Wallace May to play bass. Since then they've released two singles: "Ponzi" and "Constants." In early 2016, Big Bliss served as the live band for Todd Tobias (Guided by Voices, Circus Devils) and Steve Five's project/pro-Bernie Sanders PAC Crisis Actors. Big Bliss's music is often likened to 80's staples such as The Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, New Order, and newer bands such as Interpol. They were voted "Best Emerging Post-Punk Band 2015" by Deli Magazine's reader poll. Big Bliss is: Cory Race - drums Tim Race - vocals, guitar Wallace May - bass, backing vocals ******Dead Stars is a rock band from Brooklyn, NY who craft fuzzy, hook filled indie-pop that pairs grungy guitars with catchy melodies and big, explosive choruses. Made up of cousins Jeff Moore (guitar, vocals), Jaye Moore (drums), and longtime friend John Watterberg (bass), the band won over fans with 2014's debut LP Slumber and their most recent release, 2016's Bright Colors. The band has spent the past few years playing countless shows and touring the U.S. and are currently working on a new album. ******Fat Heaven - Dogs, 40s, and Rock n' Roll ******Debbie Downer - never gonna lift you up always gonna bring you down

Oslo - Lincoln Center, Vivian Beaumont Theater
May 24, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

Circadian Clock is a 5 piece rock band formed in 2008. The seemingly mismatched group of strangers come together to make some seriously strange music, and they prefer it that way.

They've played all over the city at venues like Lincoln Center, Webster Hall, The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, and The Boston Freedom Rally with over 30k attendance.

A word coined by Cornell and appearing often in his journals, "wanderlusting" captures the two longings, the two impossibilities of this man's outwardly quiet, staid life — travel and eros.

Performance features opera diva Lauren Flanigan, baritone Mario Diaz-Moresco, soprano Julia Meadows, vocal innovator Joan La Barbara, and "new-music all-stars" Ne(x)tworks. With this concert Joan La Barbara launches a series of events and performances celebrating her 70th birth year. Joan La Barbara is a composer, performer, sound artist, and actor renowned for her unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques, influencing generations of composers and singers.

Her numerous commissions include composing for multiple voices, chamber ensembles, theater, orchestra, interactive technology, and soundscores for dance, video and film, including a score for voice and electronics for Sesame Street broadcast worldwide since 1977. Recordings of her work include: ShamanSong, Sound Paintings, Voice is the Original Instrument, Tapesongs, and 73 Poems, which was included in The American Century Part II: Soundworks at The Whitney Museum of American Art.

Tony nominee Arian Moayed (The Humans, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) offers a revelatory new reading of the "melancholy Dane". Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell's Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare's masterpiece of crisis and identity.

Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern western elements, this is a bold re-imagining of most renowned play in any language.

Harlem Gospel Choir Sings Whitney & Beyonce - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
Through May 24, 2017 - New York

The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is the most renowned gospel choir in America and a preeminent gospel choir worldwide. It travels the globe, sharing the joy of faith through its music and raising funds for children's charities. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir presents the finest singers and musicians from Harlem's Black Churches and the New York/Tri-State area. Harlem Gospel Choir have performed alongside superstars such as Bono, Diana Ross, The Gorillaz, Andre Rieu and most recently Damon Albarn and Pharrell Williams. They have performed for three Presidents (President Obama, President Carter and President Nelson Mandela), two Popes (Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI) and have recorded with the likes of Sir Keith Richards, The Chieftains, and Trace Adkins. Deeply rooted in the history of the African-American slave trade, black gospel music can be traced back to the 1700s when African slaves brought their unique African musical heritage to America and combined it with their new faith - Christianity. Out of the hardship and the trials of slavery, this unique musical tradition came to be, and forever changed music as we know it. Blues, Soul, and Rock-and-Roll...they all have origins in black gospel music. Harlem Gospel Choir presents modern gospel classics as performed in the black churches of Harlem today. The Harlem Gospel Choir's songs of gospel and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul and lift your spirit to angelic heights, with sounds that are unfettered, joyous, and inspirational. With every performance, the Choir shares the renaissance of Harlem's culture with the audience. Every performance will take your breath away!

Capleton - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
May 24, 2017 - New York

A wise man once said that a prophet is never honored in his own country. And so it has been with Capleton. While the veteran DJ,s words and works long ago earned him the title of "The Prophet", the respect and honor that should rightfully be his have been a long time coming. Anytime you try to uplift righteousness and upliftment of the people them, then you ah go get a fight, says the hottest entertainer in the worldwide reggae fraternity. "Bob Marley come do it and them fight him. And when Bob Marley dead, that's when they start to endorse him. I already aware of this, I am not unaware. So I know the more them fight I is the more I get stronger" In the fast-moving world of dancehall reggae, fame and success are hard to obtain and easy to lose. Fans can be fickle, and trends change in the blink of an eye, leaving most entertainers with painfully short career spans. Only a rare few can remain relevant from year to year, holding their audience's attention and leaving them crying for more. His lyrics are deep, precise, and thoughtful. His stage shows are nothing less than dynamic, explosive performances. But his remarkable staying power and longevity may be Capleton's greatest gift. Born Clifton George Bailey III on April 13, 1967, in the rural parish of St. Mary, Capleton earned his future stage name from friends who were so impressed with his sharp reasoning skills that they named him after the most famous lawyer in town. From a tender young age, he was a lover of the traveling sound systems, sneaking out at night to catch the vibes until dawn. But it wasn't until he turned 18 and moved to Kingston that he was able to realize his destiny. Many of Capleton's songs "and most of his critics" make mention of this blazing fire. Capleton hopes to clear up the confusion once and for all. "Is not really a physical fire. Is really a spiritual fire, and a wordical fire, and a musical fire. You see the fire is all about a livity. But is people get it on the wrong term. People get confused. So when a man say `more fire' him think that mean say you fi go light the cane field or go light the church." Fire, Capleton explains, is a way of reminding ones brother that they are going astray. "That way a man know say him doing something wrong. That even give him the urge to know say Yo check up on yourself. What you're doing is not right, or else him would not say `Fire fi dat,' or `Burn dat' or `More fire.'" "If we go check it back now," he continues, "fire is for the purification of earth, anyhow you check it. This earth itself have to even emerge from the literal fire also, which is the volcanic activity, we a talk bout lava. The hottest element to rise us in the morning is the sun. The water cleanse, but it's still the support from the fire that burn the water, burn out of the bacteria so the water coulda heal we fi cleanse. The herb heal, but it's still the fire fi burn the herb so the herb coulda heal we also." Capleton >> Capleton @ Twitter >> Capleton @ Myspace >>

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 14th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

Shahar Mintz - Rockwood Music Hall
May 24, 2017 - East Village

My name is Shahar Mintz and I'm a singer/songwriter and guitarist. Back in my home land, Israel, I studied classical guitar for five years before moving on to explore the theory of Jazz and modern music. At the age of 19, I was accepted to the Rimon school of Jazz And Contemporary Music. After two years of college I moved to Tel-Aviv and took part in various projects of different musical styles: A joint Jewish-Arabic ensemble that worked towards bringing the two nations together; Tony Ray, a top local Reggae act; and Numerous Rock bands. I was also a part of the Hip-Hop Funk band Hadag Nachash. In 1998 I moved to New York City and joined the local Funk act Milo-Z. I played with Milo for two and a half years, touring mostly the east coast and Europe. While in Europe we had the honor of playing with bands such as The Water Boys, Massive Attack and Patti Smith. I spent the summer of 2002 playing with DJs on the endless party island of Ibiza. In 2003 I acted as band leader and lead guitar player for Warner Bros. recording artist Lizzie West. We spent a year on the road touring 45 states, sharing the stage with artists such as Chris Isaac, The Neville Brothers, Jesse Harris, Berlin and Twinemen (ex Morphine). In 2005 I joined Meta and the Cornerstones, a Brooklyn based Reggae band, fronted by the powerful Senegalese singer Meta Dia. Considered "the future of Reggae music" by National Geographic, the band fuse Afro-pop, Hip-Hop, Rock and Soul with an international mixture of vocals. This synthesis of Reggae and Soul with powerful lyrics and feel-good melodies creates something that transcends borders and language barriers. The band consists of members who are as diverse as the music, with each member bringing his musical flavor from West Africa, North America, Asia and the Middle East. Over the years Meta And The Cornerstones have performed extensively sharing the stage with musical legends such as The B52's, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Youssou N'Dour, Israel Vibration, Culture, Yellowman and Steele Pulse. In January 2011 the band recorded their second album at the world famous Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston Jamaica. Formed by Bob Marley and originally located at his Kingston home, Tuff Gong is considered "the cradle of Reggae music". The album was produced by Sidney Mills, keyboard player of Steele Pulse, and features Damian Marley, Julian Marley, U-roy and Capleton as guest vocalists. In 2005 I also joined the band Mahavatar, a female fronted Hard Rock band with Middle Eastern influences. In the summer of 2007 we played the Woodstock of Poland festival in front of 200,000 people. That same year we went back to Europe as a part of Metalfilia 2007, a 12 city tour of Poland, sharing the stage with bands from Japan, Mexico, Poland and Russia. In 2008 I started working as a composer for Siblings Music Company. Working closely with Creative Director and company founder Mario Grigorov, I co-wrote two of the company's most memorable audio branded campaigns for Toyota and Cymbalta. With Mario I also Co-wrote the musical score for Lee Daniels' feature film Tennessee, starring Mariah Carey. The film debuted at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival. Daniels' scored an Academy Award nomination for his next project: the movie Precious that was nominated in the best Picture category in 2009. In 2009 I also started touring extensively with international Pop star Gala. For her first album, Come into My Life, Gala was nominated for the "Best Female Artist" award at the COFA (Celebration of Female Artists) Awards in the UK. She also received the "Disque d'Or" at the Midem in Cannes that same year. Her smash single "Freed from Desire", Went platinum and then diamond, selling over six million copies worldwide. Gala has performed on the BBC Television show Top of the Pops, alongside Janet Jackson and U2. In the years 2009-2011 we played sold out shows in arenas all over the world: Ethias Arena in Belgium (22,000 people), Palais du Sport Paris (6,000 people) and Sambodromo de Anhembi Sao-Pulo Brazil (8,000 people). Gala's songs are still fixtures of popular radio stations worldwide. In recent years I have been concentrating on singing and songwriting. I've been producing music at home, working on various songs of different musical styles, ranging from Funk, Hip-Hop and R&B to Rock and Electronica. I also write a lot of music that features a more Folky acoustic sound and recenly released my first solo album: Know Yourself.

Gabrielle Ross - Rockwood Music Hall
May 24, 2017 - East Village

As a young teenager, Gabrielle Ross found herself onstage at the Apollo, knocking the audience dead at the theater's famed Amateur Night competition. With her stunning vocal delivery and commanding stage presence, she went on to win every round that year, taking home the coveted championship and, in the process, launching a career that would take her from working in her father's bagel shop in Long Island and singing at weddings on the weekends to a seemingly endless string of highlights: touring around the world with artists like Tyler Hilton, and Kate Voegele; being profiled by the New York Times; having her recording of "Don't You Worry Child" posted by Swedish House Mafia as their Cover Of The Day, opening the door to collaborations with prominent European DJs and producers; singing onstage with Patti Labelle in front of thousands; performing at New York's iconic Carnegie Hall; and now, preparing to release her newest EP, 'Things Are Gonna Change,' featuring collaborations with platinum R&B star Jeremih, and producer Hit-Boy. Even as a child, it was clear to Ross that she belonged on the stage. "I actually started performing when I was younger because I was extremely shy, and I couldn't find my place," says Ross, who grew up listening to everything from Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey to Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel. "I wasn't comfortable in my own skin, but onstage, I lost all my insecurities." That confidence shines through on 'Things Are Gonna Change,' an emotional, infectious collection of pop gems. Produced by some extraordinary talent including Jeff Gitty (Bruno Mars, J Cole,) Deputy (Rihanna,) Hit-Boy (Jay-Z, Kanye West,) and Kmack (Beyonce, Missy Elliot,) the EP alternates between sexy swagger and intimate vulnerability, all part of Ross's ongoing mission to share a positive message of unconditional acceptance, love, unity, and self-confidence with her audience. "Unfortunately, there's so much cruelty and bullying that goes on in this world, and I would love to inspire young men and women to believe in themselves and stop comparing themselves to others," says Ross. "That's something I can really relate to and that I really try to convey in my music." Her recent release "Love Is Love" is an equality anthem that does just that. Inspired in part by her friends' same-sex marriage, Ross draws on her own experiences to explore the ways we find fulfillment in relationships of all kinds. "Love is what it is, and you cant fight it or force it," she explains. "Love is not perfect, but it doesn't have to be. It's different to everybody, but at the end of the day, love is love." On "#MCM," (produced by YOBO) Ross is joined by Jeremih, whose distinctive vocals complement hers over a sultry, dance-floor-ready rhythm section, while "Crazy Glue" takes a more contemplative approach, as she tells herself "I'm gonna find my light at the end of this long dark road." "I started writing this project when I was in a dark place and being able to really come out of that experience and grow to find this beautiful, positive place I'm in now," Ross explains "...makes me see that no matter how terrible things may seem or feel in the moment, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel." Ross strips things down on "Things Are Gonna Change," an acoustic ballad that tugs at the heartstrings, and "Now," which she finished writing on tour in the UK and quickly became one of the most powerful moments of her live set. "Everybody was like, 'Oh my God that song made me cry', and they wanted to tell me their personal story and how this song was helping them through their struggles, which was amazing to me," says Ross. Amazing, perhaps, but not surprising from an artist who's chosen to use her unique ability to forge deep, personal connections with her audience to bring joy and positivity into their lives every time she gets onstage. With the release of her new EP, Ross's audience is about to get a whole lot bigger, but that just means a whole lot more love and light to share with the world. Things are gonna change, indeed.

Bucky Hayes - Rockwood Music Hall
May 24, 2017 - East Village

"100 Miles to Macon" is the first studio album to be released by Bucky Hayes and the Commonwealth. Recorded live at a remote state of the art studio in Upstate New York, "100 Miles to Macon" fulfills Bucky Hayes' dream of capturing the spontaneous energy of the band. Bucky Hayes is a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter but Hayes was born in Nashville and raised in both Central Florida and Atlanta, Georgia. In his early teens, he discovered the Grateful Dead, bought his first guitar at age 14, and saw an amazing Allman Brothers show; the course of his life was changed forever. In his late teens and early 20s, his love of traveling lead him to doing one full summer of street performances in many different cities as he and his buddy crisscrossed the country. Bucky received an Associate degree from Georgia Perimeter College in Alpharetta, Georgia. During this time, he developed a love for songwriting and began trying his hand at the open mic at the famed Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA. In 2005, love and adventure lead him to NYC. He spent the first few years doing open mics and performing solo shows before forming his first band in 2008 to tour behind a self-released album. That band, Bucky Hayes and the Radio, was active from fall of 2008 to spring of 2012. Bucky went back to playing solo, duo, and trio gigs for a few years before forming his current band, Bucky Hayes and the Commonwealth. Bucky Hayes and the Commonwealth consists of good friends and incredible musicians including drummer Sonny Ratcliff, bassist Bobby McCullough, keyboardist Bryan Trenis and guitarist Patrick Hay. "100 Miles to Macon" will be released September 9, 2016 with an album release show on September 10, 2016 at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC.

The Appleseed Collective - Rockwood Music Hall
May 24, 2017 - East Village

"Recorded live, with no overdubs, during the quartet's "best moments of 2015…," these five songs capture that characteristically breathless theatricality inherent to each Appleseed set." —Jeff Milo, Current Magazine The Appleseed Collective is poised to become the new sound of string music. Riding the wave of the bluegrass revival beyond newgrass and into a strange new genre-bending territory, they explore the full range of dark and light, old and new, composition and improvisation in a deeply theatrical stage show that transports audiences through time. "This is music best served alongside a roaring campfire, but that also has the ability to challenge the rafters of any grand arena." —Joshua Pickard, Beats Per Minute The sounds of The Appleseed Collective are as diverse as the personalities that create them. Violinist/Mandolinist Brandon Worder-Smith grew up steeped in a rich rural Bluegrass and Irish fiddle culture. Driven to explore beyond the boundaries of tradition, he set off on foot to hitchhike around America searching for his musical kin. After a year and a half of wandering he stumbled across Guitarist Andrew Brown back in Ann Arbor MI, where the band now hangs their collective hats when not on the road. Downtown Andrew Brown, fast-talking vintage garb peddler and son of a Motown session musician had just returned from New Orleans with a piece of that dixieland sound. He gifted long-time friend and funk/rock drummer Vince Russo with a washboard, whose penchant for ripping percussion solos and untamed showmanship were only further enhanced, and the first incarnation of the band was born. Later the boys would join forces with bassist Eric O'Daly, whose passion for Indian Classical music and introspective yet fiery Irish nature would complete the Genre-Bending sound of The Appleseed Collective. "[The Appleseed Collective] sweeps out the various corners of American music, taking a long look at both the sublime and the strange. The group explores both dark and light in a way that other string-band revivalists haven't touched." —Aarik Danielsen, Columbia Daily Tribune As a triune of songwriters, O'Daly, Brown, and Worder-Smith craft tunes from the sublime to the darkly evocative. In the space of their new 5 song EP, The Tour Tapes they swing from dim club storytelling swagger to rich vocal harmony, from hot club hot licks to spacey ambience, from old Irish reels to modern American indie. Despite the diversity of influences, The Appleseed Collective's sound is unmistakably it's own. "The dictionary defines Americana as, 'things associated with the culture and history of America, especially the United States.' Well if that is the case then The Appleseed Collective is real Americana. I figured out sort of a mathematical equation last night: It's like Satch plus Django plus Joplin plus Bob Wills plus a little Bill Monroe—but the sum is actually greater than the parts." —Jason Marck, introducing the band for a live performance on WBEZ Chicago's Morning Shift in 2014

Maurizio Pollini - Istituto Italiano di Cultura New York
May 24, 2017 - New York

Italian musicians in New York series: Maurizio Pollini in conversation with Harvey Sachs. In a career spanning nearly 60 years Maurizio Pollini is one of the great piano legends. He has a broad repertoire ranging from Bach to contemporary composers and has recorded works from the classical, Romantic and contemporary repertoire to worldwide critical acclaim. He is particularly renowned for his innovative concert programs which champion works by contemporary composers and contrasts these with those of the Classical and Romantic eras. His recordings of the complete piano works of Schoenberg, and of works by Berg, Webern, Nono, Boulez and Lachenmann are a testament to his great passion for music of the 20th century and beyond. He has won innumerable awards, including Gramophone and Echo Awards, Diapason d'or, Record Academy Prize, Tokyo, and Stella d'oro as well as two Grammys. Maurizio Pollini was born in Milan on 5 January 1942. His father was the famous architect Gino Pollini, one of the leading representatives of Italian rationalism and also an expert violinist. His mother, Renata Melotti, studied piano and singing and was the sister of the well-known sculptor Fausto Melotti, who had a lasting influence on the young Pollini. In 1948 Maurizio Pollini received his first piano lessons from Carlo Lonati. From 1955 until 1959 he continued his studies with Carlo Vidusso and in 1958 he began to study composition with Bruno Bettinelli. In 1960 he was awarded first prize at the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw and appeared at La Scala playing Chopin's First Piano Concerto under Celibidache. Since then Pollini has become one of the most admired and respected pianists of our time and has appeared all over the world with leading orchestras and conductors.

Facebook: /IrvingPlaza Twitter: @IrvingPlaza Instagram: @IrvingPlaza Snapchat: IrvingPlazaNYC Founded in Los Angeles in 1997, Flogging Molly has always defied categorization. The infectious originality of their songs is a badge of honor and key to the band's creativity, their urgency. They infuse punk rock with Celtic instruments—violin, mandolin and the accordion—and they merge blues progressions with grinding guitars and traditional Irish music. "We're not a traditional band," explains Dublin-born frontman Dave King. "We are influenced by traditional music and inspired by it, but without question we put our own twist on it." Theirs is music of exile, rebellion, struggle and history. The band's only criteria for its music are simple and bone-deep: that it matter. The social and political awareness that drives Flogging Molly's music is never more prominent than in their upcoming new album LIFE IS GOOD out on June 2nd (Vanguard Records). Their sixth studio album, LIFE IS GOOD is the band's strongest release to date highlighting their finesse to tell meticulously crafted 'stories' with fierce and bravado arrangements. LIFE IS GOOD is the follow up release to 2011's Speed of Darkness which landed at #9 on Billboard's Top 200. In 2002, Drunken Lullabies was released and certified Gold. Float, released in 2008, was a deeply stirring and personal album recorded in King's native Ireland. Through all of this, Flogging Molly—first, last, and always is a live band— playing raucous and adrenaline-fueled shows in bars, pubs, and major rock festivals in North America, Europe, and Japan. "In Ireland," King says, "you go to the pub to have a conversation. That's what we do every night on stage, go to the pub and trade stories." In 2010, to showcase their unparalleled and limitless energy on stage, the band released Flogging Molly: Live at the Greek Theatre, a three disc set chronicling their legendary sold out shows at one of LA's most famous music venues. Flogging Molly has always put their fans before commercial success, and they've always put their music before marketability. The rewards of such independence and integrity are undeniable. You feel it from the first note to the last, the pathos and the passion, the sweeping and rollicking electricity of inspiration.

Honoring Danny Gatton - The Public Theater
May 24, 2017 - New York

Danny Gatton (1945-1994) was a legendary Washington D.C.- based guitarist who was often called the greatest unknown player in the world. A guitarist's guitarist, he was an encyclopedia of American styles, jazz, rockabilly, blues, country, and rock n' roll, a virtuoso of the highest order who yet remained humble and true to his roots. Gatton counted as his admirers Vince Gill, James Burton, Mike Stern, Les Paul, and Russell Malone. These are the first NYC concerts to honor Gatton since the memorial shows that were held after his death in 1995 at Tramps. Seven guitarists will perform the Danny Gatton repertoire. In keeping with the Guitar Summit's mission to foster daring and inventive approaches, curator Joel Harrison has invited both the old and new to perform. A mixture of Gatton allies from the D.C. area will combine with cutting-edge New York mavericks. Of special note is the appearance of longtime Gatton band mates John Previti and Barry Hart. This occasion will mark the NYC debut of the Anacostia Delta band featuring a frontline of three Telecasters (Chappell, Pirog, Harrison) propelled by Previti and Hart. The Alternative Guitar Summit, founded in 2010, is a yearly summit of daring, inventive players who emphasize new and unusual approaches to the guitar. The music we present celebrates the guitar's enormous range, beyond style or genre. The AGS seeks to commission new work, whether improvised, notated, or both, and is devoted to promoting new music through education and performance in the New York City metropolitan area and beyond. Featuring: Oz Noy, Brandon Seabrook, Pete McCann, Joel Harrison - guitar Stephan Crump - bass Allison Miller - drums Dave Chappell, Anthony Pirog - guitar John Previti - bass Barry Hart - drums

Christopher Mcbride & the Whole Proof - Smalls Live
May 24, 2017 - New York City

Superb Alto Saxophonist Christopher McBride has been slowly but steadily turning heads with his ubiquitous work as an invaluable sideman since the mid-aughts. Now the time has come for him to take a bow as a bandleader, and his 2012 debut album Quatuor de Force certainly establishes his ability to front a group and write his own soulful, melodically indelible tunes. Applauded for his ability to play in all musical situations, McBride has the ability to unleash a fiery attack and serrated tone, but on his recent album he explores a more measured, mellow sound heavily influenced by contemporary R&Bwith a strong shot of Cannonball Adderleys post-bop sensualitybut his improvising is still rigorous and cogent. The son of a Honduran father and an American mother, Christopher McBride was born into a household that was filled with the diverse musical sounds of Gospel, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Soca, Dancehall, World, and R&B. Starting his professional career in Chicago in 2007, Christopher has been in high demand as a musician and clinician, performing and teaching primarily in New York, Illinois, Missouri and various states throughout the country. In addition, he has shared his musical gift with audiences across the globe, performing in China, England, France, Haiti, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, Spain and Switzerland. Throughout his career, Christopher has played with musical greats including Billy Preston, Antonio Hart, John Clayton, Jimmy Heath, Bobby Broom, Percy Gray, Roy Hargrove, Talib Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, Guy Sebastian, Jennifer Hudson, 88 Keys, Milton Mustafa, & Winard Harper. He now currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly: Part PINK - Bosque Fountain @ The Battery
May 24, 2017 - New York

Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly: Part PINK Tamar Ettun and The Moving Company Presented by The Battery Conservancy Cohosted by Naomi Lev and Tora Lopez May 24, 6-7pm The Bosque Fountain at Battery Park On Wednesday, May 24, at sunset, The Moving Company will premiere the third part of its ongoing performance series Mauve Bird with Yellow Teeth Red Feathers Green Feet and a Rose Belly: Part PINK. During the 45-minute performance, the Movers will delicately manipulate enormous pink balloons and handmade sculptures, walk on cement balls, draw on the pavement, jump through bike tires, climb, fall, and interact with the audience. The Moving Company will activate The Battery as a communal, pictorial playground. Part PINK playfully explores the concept of aggression. It is a sequel to Part Blue and Part Yellow that dealt with empathy and desire (premiered at the Watermill Center and Bryant Park in 2015 and 2016). Each of the four parts in the Mauve Bird tetralogy is based on a color signifying an emotion that is felt when relating to others. The final chapter will premiere in 2018. The project confronts our (machine-like) psychological defenses with collective gestures. Mirrored movements break down the us-versus-them binary, and primal empathy prevails. The Moving Company - a contemporary dance ensemble led by artist Tamar Ettun - is committed to bringing JOY & EMPATHY to public spaces through art and performance! The performance is FREE and open to everyone.

Kiefer Sutherland - The Bowery Ballroom
May 25, 2017 - NYC

Kiefer Sutherland has been a professional actor for over thirty years, starring in movies like 'Stand By Me', 'The Lost Boys', 'Young Guns', Flatliners', 'A Few Good Men', 'A Time to Kill', 'Dark City', 'Melancholia' and most recently, a western called 'Forsaken,' as well as the TV series '24.' But unknown to many during the course of his career, he has taken on other vocations with the same kind of dedication and commitment. The first one, beginning around 1992, was that of a cattle rancher and competitive cowboy (roper) in the USTRC team roping circuit. He ran a successful ranch with partner John English for almost a decade. During that timeframe, Sutherland won numerous roping events around the country including Phoenix, Indio and the Los Angeles Open. In 2002, Sutherland, with his music partner and best friend Jude Cole, began a small record label called Ironworks. The goal of this label was to record local musicians and distribute their music at a time when the music industry was going through a monumental shift. Some of their artists included Rocco DeLuca and the Burden, HoneyHoney and Billy Boy On Poison. In 2009, Sutherland left the label to recharge and figure out what he was going to do next. In early 2015 Sutherland played Cole two songs he had written and wanted to record as demos for other artists to record. Cole responded positively to the songs and the album grew organically from those recordings. Two songs became four and four grew into six, until Cole suggested that they make a record. Their collaboration resulted in Kiefer Sutherland's upcoming debut album: 'Down In A Hole'. Sutherland says of the 11 tracks that make up the album, "It's the closest thing I've ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. There is something very satisfying about being able to look back on my own life, good times and bad, and express those sentiments in music. As much as I have enjoyed the writing and recording process, I am experiencing great joy now being able to play these songs to a live audience, which was something I hadn't counted on".

Girls Night Out w/ Sean Sharp, DLO plus Special Guests - Webster Hall
May 25, 2017 -

FREE ADMISSION FOR LADIES 21+ REDUCED ADMISSION FOR GENTLEMEN BEFORE MIDNIGHT W RSVP Special Guests (Urban) Sean Sharp (Dance) Dj Sean Sharp began his djing career while he was still a student at Wesleyan University in CT. One day his Fraternity brother Smokey Fontaine showed up at school with a pair of Gemini turntables and a mixer. Sean and Smoke would spend countless hours practicing in their dorm room, blending and cutting up all of the records that they were able to borrow from the school's radio station. The duo soon began booking gigs on campus and eventually started getting booked at many of the neighboring colleges. After Wesleyan, Sean moved to New York to work as an intern at the Village Voice. In the city he once again hooked up with his partner Smokey and they began doing small parties and venues across the city. The pair hosted a weekly industry event at the Buddha Bar in the West Village. While working as a DJ, Sean continued to pursue his writing career. Sean has written numerous cover stories and features for various music magazines including Vibe, The Source, America Magazine and many others. One day out of the blue, Smoke and Sean got a call from the owners of Webster Hall to play in the basement (which is now known as The Studio) for a weekend. Due to the overwhelming crowd response from their appearance, the owners offered the pair a weekly residency at the venue. The Basement Party was born, and quickly became one of the most popular Hip-Hop parties in the city. When Smoke left to take an editorial position at a magazine, Sean kept the party going and eventually brought on DJ DLO, one of the greatest voices in NYC nightlife, as his new partner. Known for their high energy sets, Sean and DLO have played music in every room of Webster Hall and continue to be one of the club's prime attractions. Sean takes pride in his ability to mix various genres of music into a seamless blend of sonic goodness that keeps the dance floors packed with an eclectic group of people from around the world. DLo (Dance) Enrique Dexter Johnson also known as DJ D.L.O has been a resident DJ here at the legendary Webster Hall for fourteen years. His passion was always to become a DJ, so at the age of fifteen he started fulfilling his dream. Being that he started at a young age, he did not take it seriously until he seen a very close friend of his play at a house party. To see him control a huge crowd by mixing records and talking on the microphone really inspired Enrique more. As years went by, his close friend known as DJ Storm gave him an oppurtunity to open up for him at an event. The crowd loved what he did and was very responsive.

Oslo - Lincoln Center, Vivian Beaumont Theater
May 25, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

Cole Nakoa & Treacher - Rockwood Music Hall
May 25, 2017 - East Village

The trio of Cole Nakoa & Treacher joins the forces of three of the most soulful and engaging performers in the singer/songwriter world today. Brad Cole, Matt Nakoa and Robinson Treacher weave their sound, lyricism and inspiration to cultivate a live music that is as undeniably unique as it is powerful. "when cole, nakoa and treacher played my on your radar series, they brought down the house with their chemistry and creativity." - john platt - wfuv "Poignant songs, seamless harmony blends, bedrock roots power … overall killer chops. A must-see!" -Acoustic Live Magazine Brad Cole - The songs of Brad Cole address the ups and downs of the human condition with both wit and raw insight. His passionate and distinctive delivery of roots-based folk music, woven with the grit and groove of old school bossa and rhythm & blues moves the listener's soul in a direction that is unexpected, yet perfectly familiar. The last eighteen months have been very fruitful for Brad - Playing over a hundred shows and sharing the stage with a range of immensely talented artists such as Chris Stapleton, Shovels and Rope, Ingrid Michaelson, Dave Davies, Ari Hest, Dan Navarro, Ellis Paul and Will Kimbrough. Brad has just finished recording his fourth full length record, entitled Lay It Down which is due to be released in early 2016. Lay it Down was recorded in East Nashville, TN with producer Joe McMahan and a veteran cast of musicians resulting in a project that is perhaps Brad's most soulfully eclectic and cohesive work to date. Matt Nakoa - Matt Nakoa grew up on a small goat farm in Central New York and began composing music as a teenager. Following a formative stint as a concert pianist, he won scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music. There Matt worked alongside a who's who of soon-to-be industry darlings, including St. Vincent, Esperanza Spaulding, and members of the bands Karmin and Lucius. After school, Matt wrote and toured with his Berklee-bred band, The Fens. His first solo release, 2012's Light In The Dark, was received by fans as an eclectic pop/rock masterpiece while Matt's latest studio album, A Dozen Other Loves (2014), explores a mainly acoustic palette. This acoustic avenue has led to steady folk radio airplay and performances with veteran songsmiths Patty Larkin, Ellis Paul, and Tom Rush. An engaging performer, Matt tours internationally, recently giving concerts at The White House and throughout India. Matt is a 2014 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Winner and a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Most Wanted Artist. Additionally, Matt's piano music has received favorable reviews in publications including The New York Times, and his film scoring has been featured at BAM, and on Disney.com. Robinson Treacher - If entertainment can be defined as an agreeable occupation of the mind, then Robinson Treacher has found a way to encompass this in every aspect of his contribution to music-kind. Whether playing the role as front man to the soul-rock infused Delaware Hudson, as co-collaborator to the Alt-Country based Tensleep, or as a solo singer/songwriter, Treacher seems to drain himself of energy in the ceaseless pursuit of portraying moments of musical passion. This passion is evident in every attempt he makes to involve us, the listeners, in the spiritual orchestrations of emotion that have been meticulously tempered into songs. Just like the long list of New York City artists before him, Robinson feeds off the honest grit found among the "huddled masses"...coupling the blatantly obvious (to a New Yorker at least) with the deeply personal. Chameleon-like in his approach to his songwriting, he refuses to be pigeonholed into one particular genre. Believing that each song is forged from its own unique terrain, he takes great pains in choosing the vehicle by which passengers might best weatherthe bumps, potholes, and blind curves found between the first note and the last. Admittedly susceptible to the affectations of the senses himself, he asks his audience to participate emotionally as well as physically in a "whole self " conceptual challenge, a 360 degree soul search comprised of the most joyous elation to the bitterest of pains.

Sara Watkins - Rockwood Music Hall
May 25, 2017 - East Village

"This is a breakup album with myself..." says Sara Watkins of her third solo record, Young in All the Wrong Ways. Writing and recording these ten intensely soul-baring songs was a means for her to process and mark the last couple years, which have been transformative. "I looked around and realized that in many ways I wasn't who or where I wanted to be. It's been a process of letting go and leaving behind patterns and relationships and in some cases how I've considered myself. What these songs are documenting is the turmoil you feel when you know something has to change and you're grappling with what that means. It means you're losing something and moving forward into the unknown." That sense of possibility infuses the songs on Young in All the Wrong Ways with a fierce and flinty resolve, which makes this her most powerful and revealing album to date. In some ways it's a vivid distillation of the omnivorous folk-pop-bluegrass-indie-everything-else Watkins made with Nickel Creek, yet she makes audacious jumps that push against expectations in unexpected ways. These songs contain some of the heaviest moments of her career, with eruptions of thrumming B3 organ and jagged electric guitar. But it's also quiet, vulnerable, tenderhearted. In other words, bold in all the right ways. Recently Watkins found herself without a manager at the same time she was leaving the label that released her first two solo albums. For many artists that might be the worst possible time to enter the studio, but working without a net invigorated Watkins. It was important for her to document this time in her life when she was between professional contracts: free from the weight of obligation to anyone but herself. In that regard the tumultuous title track sounds like the first song of the rest of her life. Her backing band create a violent clamor, with Jon Brion's sharp stabs of electric guitar punctuating the din and Jay Bellerose's explosive drumming ripping at the seams of the song. In the chaos, however, Watkins finds clarity: "I've got no time to look back, so I'm going to leave you here," she sings, with new grit and fire in her voice. "I'm going out to see about my own frontier." Fittingly, Watkins wrote or co-wrote every song on Young in All the Wrong ways—a first for her. Her previous albums have featured well-chosen covers that compliment her own songs and showcase her interpretive abilities. "I love singing other people's songs, and originally I did plan to have a couple of covers on the album. But as we were recording and getting a picture of how everything fit together, it became apparent that the covers really stood apart from the story that was taking shape. I felt like I just had a little bit more to say. Everything is coming from me, so there's a unified perspective on this album that's different from what I've done before." Some are lonely and quiet: "Like New Year's Day" describes in careful detail a trip out to the desert, and the low-key arrangement echoes the reassuring isolation of the southwestern landscape. Other songs are more extroverted, their volume and energy a means to reach out to friends and colleagues. "Move Me" opens as a loping pop song, but soon explodes into a walloping rocker as Watkins demands, in a voice that strains against composure, "I want you to move me!" It's a time-stopping performance: Janis Joplin by way of Fleetwood Mac. "That song is about relationships that have gone stagnant, how sometimes we just go about the process of making small talk in order not to stir anything up," she says. "But it's sad when you can't have a meaningful conversation with people after a while. Even if they hurt you, you just want to feel something from them. You don't relate to each other the same way as you once did, so you have to decide if you're going to invite this person further into your life or just move on." Watkins knew just the right people to bring these tough-minded songs to life. She corralled longtime friend and fellow fiddler Gabe Witcher to produce, then put together a band that includes two of Witcher's fellow Punch Brothers: guitarist Chris Eldridge and bass player Paul Kowert. Providing harmonies on the title track are Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O'Donovan, Watkins' bandmates in I'm With Her, and Jim James of My Morning Jacket provides a vocal foil on "One Last Time." "I've known these guys for a long time, so there's a personal trust as well as a musical trust. I was able to put my heart and soul into these performances, in a way that I don't think I would be able to if I was in a room full of strangers. It allowed me to give myself over to some of these very personal thoughts that are in the lyrics." To say these are personal lyrics might be an understatement. They're beyond personal, whether she's confessing some long-held regret or gently consoling a friend. Young in All the Wrong Ways ends with "Tenderhearted," a quietly assured song that Watkins wrote about a few of her heroes: women like her Grandmother Nordstrom who have weathered hard times with grace and have provided Watkins with examples of how to live her life. "They're women who have endured so much yet emerged with love, strength and kindness. I remember someone saying, It's so sad how much she's had to go through. And I remember thinking, That's why she's such an incredible person. She faced all those trials and came out the other side." Watkins would never be so bold as to count herself in their company; instead, she aspires to follow their example. But Young in All the Wrong Ways does reveal an artist who has managed to transform her own turmoil into music that is beautiful and deeply moving: "God bless the tenderhearted," she sings, "who let life overflow."

Hamlet - Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
May 25, 2017 - New York

Tony nominee Arian Moayed (The Humans, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) offers a revelatory new reading of the "melancholy Dane". Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell's Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare's masterpiece of crisis and identity. In it, a traditional way of life is being threatened by an evolving world, the land is being threatened by encroaching foreign interests, and a young man finds himself uprooted and torn between opposing customs, values and codes. Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern western elements, this is a bold re-imagining of most renowned play in any language.

'Three Kings' Feat. Twista, Kool G. Rap & Jeru the Damaja - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
May 25, 2017 - New York

Life's best surprises often come from unlikely places. Twista knows this better than most. The pioneering platinum rapper put Chicago on the rap map and made the double-time rap style a rap staple. Despite selling millions of albums and popularizing a delivery incorporated by everyone from Jay-Z to Eminem, the Windy City rapper remains largely unheralded by the uninformed. That's why he's named his new album The Dark Horse. Twista became even more popular in 2003 and 2004 when he teamed with fellow Chicagoan Kanye West and Jamie Foxx for the smash single "Slow Jamz." Twista's 2004 album, Kamikaze, earned him his first platinum plaque. Since then, Twista has remained one of rap's premier practitioners and in-demand collaborators. He's appeared on albums from Mariah Carey, Pitbull and Jay-Z, among others, and released a string of acclaimed albums and mixtapes. But for Twista, it all comes down to the music. It's the reason he's remained one of rap's top talents for two decades. "It's the love of the music," he says. "I do other things and I have other business ventures that I do, but my love is really with the music. I keep doing it and staying in it because I love music. I still get excited every time I hear a beat or think of a different flow." Kool G. Rap If you ask any Hip-Hop fan to describe Kool G Rap, you would get answers like "the Godfather of gangster rap" or "he's your favourite rapper's favourite rapper", but if there was a more fitting word to describe this man, other than "inspirational", it would be a "legend". Kool G Rap has fathered a whole genre of Hip-Hop with his gritty storytelling abilities painting vivid pictures of the daily struggles faced on the harsh streets of inner city New York. His complex multi-syllabalistic rhyme scheme was ground breaking when he first introduced it to the world. Since then many have tried to replicate his style, but most have fallen short. His unique style and storytelling abilities wrapped with his cunning lyricism has come to inspire artists from the likes of Big Pun, 2Pac, Jay-Z and Nas to name but a few. Kool G Rap has been at the forefront of Hip-Hop for over two decades. He is still as inspirational and as hungry as ever with his ability to adapt his style, always remaining relevant, thus making him not only one of Hip-Hop's greats, but also one of music's most resilient artists. Jeru The Dajama Hip Hop has been a part of his life for as long as he can remember. First introduced to him at age seven in the local parks of Brooklyn, New York he wrote his first lyrics at age ten. Jeru the Damaja (born Jeru Davis) aka D. Original Dirty Rotten Scoundrel was born and raised in the East New York section of Brooklyn where the everyday occurrences around him from an early age later became the source from which his rhymes flow. Jeru created and took on the persona of "the Damaja" (because he damages the mic) that is part conscious truth teller and part true to the streets Brooklyn hard rock. Jeru hooked up with DJ Premiere and Guru, collectively known as Gangstarr, shortly after they moved to New York on the late 1980's. Jeru introduced his unique "hardcore conscious" style to hip-hop audiences on "I'm the Man" a track on Gangstarr's 1992 Daily Operations album. In 1993 he cemented his place in the hip-hop world by releasing the now classic single "Come Clean" from his legendary album, The Sun Rises in the East. The Wrath of the Math was released two years later which included the hit singles "Ya Playin' Yaself" and "Me or the Papes" and Jeru was proclaimed one of the saviors of hip-hop due to his honest and straight forward critique of the state of hip-hop music. In 2000 Jeru released Heroz 4 Hire completely autonomously, from the production of the album to its release on his independent label KnowSavage Records. Jeru's second independent album Divine Design was released in 2004 and contained the new classics singles "WAR" and "Don't Get it Twisted" featuring Lil'Dap from the Group Home.

Monday Michiru - Birdland
May 25, 2017 - New York

Born of Japanese and Italian-American ancestry, Monday is quick to reject the "hah-fu" ("half") label favored by the Japanese for those of mixed heritage, instead suggesting "double." "'Half' sounds like you're half a human being," she quips, "and I'm proud to be a genesis of two great cultures." Monday Michiru, so named to reflect both heritages, is also the genesis of renowned musicians, jazz pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi and jazz saxophonist Charlie Mariano, as well as stepfather Lew Tabackin (also jazz saxophonist and flautist). While she showed natural talent playing flute from a young age, studying classically at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy on scholarship through the school and the Armstrong Flute Association, her inspiration in music caught fire with singing and later in composition. "I love classical music and still dabble on the flute, but for me music is a medium to express what I'm about, and I feel that I have a more modern perspective to music and life," she explains. It was in 1987 that Monday was scouted by Japanese movie director, Shinji Somai, to debut in the lead role as an opera singer in his movie "Hikaru Onna" ("Luminous Woman"). Somai was renowned to pick up unknown talent and throttle them to stardom, and the film did not disappoint, garnering Monday Best New Actress awards through the Japan Academy, Kinema Junpo, and the Yokohama Film Festival. Catapulted unexpectedly into her newly found career as an actress, opportunities continued to expand for Monday through movies, stage theatre and television, as well as in other fields such as hosting her own radio programs (J-Wave, FM Tokyo, etc.), modeling for major commercial ads (Kohdansha, Yubinchokin, NTT, Four Roses, etc.), appearing on variety TV shows as a "personality," and journalism with steady columns in the Tokyo Journal and other publications such as Switch, Bar-f-Out, etc. Monday notes, "I knew I was super lucky with all these interesting opportunities, but as great as it all was, I felt like a fish out of water being away from music." Frustrated by her inability to break into the music and recording industry in Japan, Monday fed her hunger for music by haunting record and CD shops. What started as a desire to stay in the loop of U.S. releases turned to a fascination over the selection of imported musics from other countries such as the U.K., Brazil, France, Jamaica, etc. "I've always been into music outside the mainstream, especially groove heavy music, but I couldn't believe how much stuff there were that I didn't know about and from cultures and genres I'd never explored before." Monday's expanding vinyl/CD collection and knowledge eventually earned her license to select the music played on her radio shows and later led to DJing in clubs, as well as laid the foundation for her own multi-genre inspired music. Finally, in 1991, Virgin Records opened its doors in Japan, and amongst their first releases included Monday's debut solo album entitled "Mangetsu," released under her then stage name, Michiru Akiyoshi. "I didn't want to be pegged as an artist of a certain genre, so went a little schizo with the variety of musical styles," Monday readily admits. Amongst the tracks is "Wagamama" in which she tries her hand at rapping, enlisting then little known Krush Posse, with DJ Krush providing the beats and MC Muro as her rap counterpart. "I convinced Virgin to press up 500 copies of the track to pass around to DJs to try and get an underground buzz going," she says. While the album and track never blew up, the latter provided a seed that helped plant Monday's placement in the burgeoning Japanese acid jazz movement, starting with the "Jap Hip Jazz" compilation CD and later with her involvements with United Future Organization, DJ Krush and Mondo Grosso. By 1993, Monday steadily began recording and releasing albums in Japan, expanding later to Europe, Australia, South America and eventually to the U.S., both as a soloist and as a featured singer/writer, collaborating with groups and artists such as Kyoto Jazz Massive, Basement Jaxx, UA, Masters At Work, Joe Clausell, Lisa Ono, Da Lata, and many others. More recent collaborations include m-flo, Jazztronik, Shinichi Osawa, Soulfeenix, P'taah, Jephte Guillaume, Louie Vega, Steal Vybe, etc. Remixes of her tracks by Masters At Work, Zero DB, Jazztronik, Mondo Grosso, Blaze, Phil Asher, DJ Kawasaki and many others have made Monday a favored artist on the dance floors worldwide. She has also written, produced and remixed tracks for artists such as Mondo Grosso, bird, Wyolica, Soul Source Productions, Grand Gallery Records, etc., as well as going on board as a vocal producer for artists such as bird, Double, Eri Nobuchika, Mink, etc. While Monday's name has become synonymous with the 90s Japanese underground scene, even earning her the title as "acid jazz diva," she is quick to rebuke such labeling. "I'm proud to have been a part of and maybe even been one of the pioneers of that scene, but I hope and believe I'm continuing to evolve musically and developing my own style," she reflects. One only needs to explore her vast collection of works to hear the musical development over the years in which she has crossed over and beyond the scope of club music to a style that is undeniably hers; Monday is the rare female singer/songwriter who also produces her own works. Monday has appeared in numerous music festivals and clubs worldwide as a solo artist, including the Blue Note Clubs in New York and throughout Japan (2002-2014), Brasil SummerFest in NYC (2014), Billboard Clubs in Osaka and Tokyo (2009-13), Toyang Art Festival and Taichung Jazz Festival in Taiwan (2013), Java Jazz Festival (2013), Sapporo Jazz Festival (2011-12), JakJazz (2006-07), Long Island WinterFest Music On the Vine (2010-14), the Newport Jazz Festival in Madarao (1999), the historical Bohemian Caverns in D.C. (2008-09), Greater Tokyo Music Festival at Honmonji, Tokyo (2003 & 2006), the Okayama Jazz Festival (2003), The Baltic Jazz Festival (1999), North Sea Jazz Festival (1997), Montreux Jazz Festival (1997), Stuttgart Jazz Festival (1997), The Phoenix Festival (1996), Beppu Jazz Festival (1995), etc. While she has won countless favorable reviews over the years for her numerous releases largely in Japan, Asia and Europe, Monday's 2012 recording, "Soulception" (Adventure Music), is the first to catch the attention of the American jazz and latin media winning many accolades. That same year, she won American fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar's "Fabulous At Every Age" award in the 40s category, and also got signed to a two year contract to be the face of Indonesian make-up brand PAC as their "brand ambassador." In 2014, she was cast for Toshiba's Regza TV promo video, performing onscreen with her band at the Tokyo Blue Note Club. Monday currently resides in New York, and continues to record and tour with her own group as well as collaborating with other artists. Her most recent release is "Brasilified Nights," a remix album off the material from her 2013 "Brasilified" project with remixes by Louie Vega (of "Zanzibar" which is already causing a buzz internationally), Zero db, Yukihiro Fukutomi, Steal Vybe to name some of the collaborators. Following a successful duet tour last Fall with her mother, legendary pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi, they just wrapped up recording "Jazz Conversations: The Other Side of Monday Michiru" to be released through Victor Japan in the Spring of 2015. Monday is plotting her next musical adventure.

Bourbon Express - Rockwood Music Hall
May 25, 2017 - East Village

Bourbon Express has been playing honky tonks around New York City since 2011. Based in Brooklyn, this unlikely country band takes its cues from traditional artists such as Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn, preferring "three chords and the truth," close-knit harmonies and old-fashioned twang to the modern country sound. Their mission is to make toes tap and taps flow. Band members include singer-songwriter Katie Curley, vocalist/percussionist Sarah Kinsey, guitarist Brendan Curley, pedal steel guitarist Ron Raymond and bassist/vocalist Andrew Dykeman. New York Music Daily describes Bourbon Express as "a first-class honky tonk band" and has named "Which Wine Goes with Your Heartache" one of "The Top 100 Songs of 2015." Their self-released debut album One Big Losin' Streak reached #152 on the AMA Chart and was ranked in the top 10 on Roots Music Report's True Country Album Chart six weeks in a row with "Last Dance" topping at #2. The Daily Country calls it "a gem; toe tapping and twangy with a sound that is decidedly old school." George Graham of WVIA's Homegrown Music deemed Bourbon Express "a great retro old-school country style band with appealing original tunes."

Mink's Miracle Medicine - Rockwood Music Hall
May 25, 2017 - East Village

Mink's Miracle Medicine formed in 2013 in Charlottesville at the hands of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Melissa Wright and Danny Zezeski. The duo draw on their respective backgrounds of old-timey country and indie-punk music to create a thoughtful mesh of twang inspired rock n' roll. Singer and guitarist Melissa Wright was born and raised at the foothills of the Blue Ridge, dreaming constantly and frolicking madly between jazz music on the trombone and bluegrass with The Acoustic Burgoo. After high school, she attended Berklee College of Music on scholarship and achieved an undergrad degree before age 22. After graduation she relocated to Charlottesville to the Magnolia House, a DIY house/venue of notable importance to the small but thriving indie scene in Central VA. Meanwhile, Daniel, fresh off the rails, learned how to fingerpick on the acoustic guitar while wheelchair bound after a freight accident. His punk roots came alive in his songwriting and he started a solo project which he called Beako, signed to County Wide Records, and became a pillar of the Charlottesville music scene. He is well known for his songwriting and his good looks!

May 25, 2017 - New York

something. When you've had a multi-generational career in music, spanning blues, soul and funk, that's something else. Bobby's incredible half century of recorded music is ready to be devoured by those who've never tasted and those who want another helping on Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History of Bobby Rush, set for release on November 27 from Omnivore Recordings. Rolling Stone magazine calls Bobby Rush "The King of the Chitlin' Circuit" for his constant touring and vibrant live show on a circuit that has been home to Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, James Brown, and other black entertainers. Mavis Staples attests, "He's been a longtime friend, an honorable man, and my father loved him. He's a joyful, happy person, and that rubs off on you when you run into him — you can't help but feel good when you're around Bobby. He's always been respectful of me and my sisters, and he was like a son to Pops. I'm a big fan." According to Rush, "It's very exciting. Truly I feel honored that someone would think enough of me to do this. The record side of it is the glory side of me and that's the side that I want people to know and I'm grateful for that. I'm happy that someone thought before I leave this land to tell my story. I'm proud of it and flattered about it. I want the world to know that this is my first time and I want to say it for people to be enthused about me. I'm not enthused about all of the songs because at the time I didn't think they were all good. But after you become a 'legend,' you look back and it all looks good. There are things you had in the can you didn't want to put out, and then you get asked what you have in the can that's never been heard to put it out." As annotator Dahl comments at the opening of his essay: "Blues never get funkier than when Bobby Rush swaggers up to the mic and lets fly with his homespun truisms. He's always in motion, always smiling, always on fire as his skintight band cooks up irresistible elastic grooves behind him."

Tinker Lab Open House: Robotics & Wearable Tech Epoch - Lewis H. Latimer House Museum
May 25, 2017 - Flushing

At the Tinker Lab 2017 May Open House, you will preview and experience the summer camp content in Robotics and Wearable Tech Epoch for free. Camp activities available for two age groups: 6-9 and 10-14. Key curriculum includes: FOR CHILDREN 10-14: REMOTE CONTROL SERVO In this project, we will use the Arduino to examine and decode signals from a remote control, and then use them to control a robot you build. E-TEXTILES Have you ever seen clothing with built-in lights? This may sound like something out of a science fiction movie, electronic textiles or E-textiles really exist. Instead of using hard surfaces for circuits, (like what goes inside your computer or cell phone,) E-textiles weave electrical parts like batteries, wires, and lights directly into the clothing you wear to make it do fun stuff: light up, respond to sound, or even serve medical purposes (eg. a shirt that monitors heart rate and breathing patterns.) In this project, you will build a light-up dance glove to put on your own light show at our culminating event. Computer Science Mapped Common Core Learning Targets: -Digital technologies knowledge and understanding. -Investigate the main components of common digital systems, their basic functions and interactions. -Investigate how data are transmitted and secured in wired, wireless mobile networks. Technology: Arduino, Scratch, Gemma FOR CHILDREN 6-9: LIGHT TRACKING ROBOT Sometimes engineers get ideas to build robots from animals in nature. There are robot dogs, robot snakes, robot birds, robot cheetahs, and even tiny robotic insects! In this science project, you will build a robot insect of your own. The robot will automatically drive toward a light source, mimicking a behavior called phototaxis, seen in some insects. LED BRACELET WITH ICONIC IMAGERY Design an LED bracelet with your favorite iconic imagery. In this project, you will explore the intersection of art and technology through printmaking and circuitry. Choose from templates of your favorite super heroes, sports teams and even buildings. Understand the basics of circuitry so that you may take you art work to the next level and develop your knowledge of the engineer–design process. Computer Science Mapped Common Core Learning Targets: -Digital technologies knowledge and understanding. -Investigate the main components of common circuit systems, their basic functions and interactions. -Investigate how data are transmitted and secured in wired networks. Registration for 2017 summer camps is available for 1-Week or 2-Week Periods for appropriate ages.

The Gil Evans Project directed by Ryan Truesdell - Jazz Standard
May 25, 2017 - New York

For decades after his death in 1988 at age 75, the only way to perform Gil Evans' music was through (often inaccu­rate) transcriptions. But the magic of Evans' writing lies in the details – his use of harmony, his unique approach to orchestration and instrumentation, and his singularly detailed rhythmic and nota­tional struc­ture. After years of painstaking research, and with the full support of the Evans family, Ryan Truesdell and the Gil Evans Project have made it possible to per­form Gil's music in its purest form, di­rectly from his manuscripts. In 2013, the ensemble's recording of "How About You" (from the ArtistShare album Centennial) won for Gil Evans the GRAMMY Award for Best Instrumental Arrange­ment. This much–anticipated return engagement includes two nights (5/27–5/28) celebrating the 60th an­niversary of Miles Davis and Gil Evans' 1957 album Miles Ahead. "Superb renderings of some of the fin­est writing of the postwar big band period. Players are uniformly excellent, but the star 'soloist' is the el­egant ensemble amalgams that Truesdell found hiding among brass and reeds that others had missed. He makes familiar material worth hearing again." (Downbeat) Ryan Truesdell – conductor Steve Wilson, Dave Pietro, Donny McCaslin, Tom Christensen, Alden Banta – reeds Adam Unsworth, David Peel – French horns Augie Haas, Scott Wendholt, Mike Rodriguez – trumpets Ryan Keberle, Marshall Gilkes, George Flynn (bass trombone) – trombones Marcus Rojas – tuba Wendy Gilles – voice Frank Kimbrough – piano Jay Anderson – bass Lewis Nash – drums

Fay Victor - 55 Bar
May 25, 2017 - New York

Riveting. Authentic. Powerful. Innovative. "If you have never seen her perform live, she is joy incarnate. She scats, she wails, coos, squalls, caresses, plays with words as if writing a play on stage, and does so with a twinkle in her eye. One can hear influences ranging from Nina Simone to Frank Zappa to Bill Dixon to Jimi Hendrix in her music." – Richard Kamins, Step Tempest Vocalist/composer Fay Victor, called "artistically complete" by the New York Times, consistently hones a unique vision of the vocalist's role in jazz and improvised music. Victor's snake-like ability to fuse her prodigious vocal talents in many music arenas all while maintaining her singular sound. A multi-genre approach called "Freesong". Victor's eight critically acclaimed recordings as a leader has seen praise in venerable media outlets such as Downbeat, JazzTimes, The New York Times, The Village Voice, Time Out New York, The Wire, Signal to Noise, The San Francisco Chronicle, Time Out Chicago, The Chicago Reader, The New York City Jazz Record and JazzWise (UK). Victor's 12 year old quartet (now trio), the Fay Victor Ensemble, explores an original music program that JazzTimes' called 'brilliant", is an expansive and cohesive mix of jazz, rock, blues, new music and free improvisation composed by Victor and bass guitarist/composer Jochem Van Dijk, releasing three albums to great critical acclaim. The experimental blues project The Exposed Blues Duo, with FVE guitarist Anders Nillson delving deep into a variety of blues forms using material from WC Handy to Ornette Coleman in the mix and Herbie Nichols SUNG, incorporating Victor's lyrics to the unsung and brilliant pianist/composer Herbie Nichols' knotty and infectious compositions. As a featured artist, Victor's vocal approach has attracted esteemed and unique ensembles to have her sound in their midst like Other Dimensions in Music (ODIM), the perennial free jazz outfit going on 40 years of existence joined forces with Victor for 2011's Kaiso Stories on Silkheart Records. Victor is the first vocalist to record for the legendary Swedish free jazz label. Kaiso Stories found deep praise for its unique fusion of Calypso and free jazz plus Victor's vocal approach with ODIM's dynamic range of expression. The legendary and longstanding Dutch outfit, the Instant Composer's Pool Orkest aka ICP led by Misha Mengelberg/Han Bennink, has invited Victor to tour with them in Europe and appear with them twice during US tours, In addition, Victor was one of the vocalists in the accomplished and legendary Anthony Braxton's Tr-Centric Orchestra, featured on Trillium E (New Braxton Records 2011), the performance of Trillium J during the four-day Braxtonian Festival held in October 2011 and given a presenting commission from the Tricentric Foundation in 2014 for Neighborhood Dynamics (co-composed with Jochem van Dijk) at Roulette in Brooklyn. Dutch reedist also Ab Baars invited Victor as well as french horn hero Vincent Chancey to celebrate 20 years with his esteemed trio with original music written specifically for Victor. And over the past four years, Victor's work with esteemed trombonist Roswell Rudd, appearing on his 2014 Trombone for Lovers singing "Trouble in Mind" and later in 2017 Victor will appear on a full project of re-imagined standards with Rudd on Rare Noise Records. Finally Victor formed a voice/percussion/piano duo with composer/multi-instrumentalist Tyshawn Sorey, with appearances at Constellation in Chicago, IL and Vision Festival XVVI in 2014 amongst the performance highlights. In addition, Victor's performed/collaborated with musicians and idols such as Misha Mengelberg, Anthony Braxton, Wadada Leo Smith, Jason Moran, Marshall Allen (Sun Ra), Han Bennink, William Parker, Lawrence "Butch" Morris, Gary Lucas, Dave Burrell, Andrew Cyrille, Sam Newsome, Darius Jones, Anthony Coleman, Nicole Mitchell, Aruan Ortiz, Val-Inc, Vijay Iyer, reedist Michael Moore, Myra Melford, Matana Roberts, Mark Dresser, Marty Ehrlich, Melvin Gibbs, Ab Baars, Elisabeth Harnik, Angelica Sanchez, Henry Butler, Curtis Clark and the Duke Ellington Orchestra.

Critically-acclaimed cabarettist Molly Pope returns to Joe's Pub with her album show, An Audience with Molly Pope. Drawing from a catalogue of re-contextualized pop, theater and standards, the "viscerally thrilling alto" (Time Out New York) wryly constructs and deconstructs herself with her signature neo-retro style. Part concert, monologue, sing-a-long and heart-to-heart, she echoes the heyday of Greenwich Village nightclubs in a current context.

MOLLY POPE is a singer and actor whose shows have played Joe's Pub, Ars Nova, Feinstein's/54Below and Feinstein's at the Regency, The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, OBERON (A.R.T.), Austin Cabaret and the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in Australia.

“Casta”: A Drama League “Next Stage” Residency - The Drama League Theater Center
May 25, 2017 - New York

(NEW YORK, NY) – Salvage Vanguard Theater (SVT), an Austin, Texas-based theater company, will be in New York City May 22-25, 2017 for a “Next Stage” residency with the Drama League. Director Jenny Larson will be developing performance piece Castawritten by Adrienne Dawes in collaboration with composer Graham Reynolds and visual artist Beth Consetta Rubel. Casta is inspired by a unique genre of portraiture that grew in popularity over the 18th century in Nueva España (Mexico). Casta paintings depicted various different racial mixtures in the New World, arranged in a specific hierarchy of race and status, as defined by Spanish elites. The complexities of contemporary racial and ethnic identity(ies) are echoed in this distant mirror of casta paintings. How do Old World anxieties about ambiguous identities reflect contemporary biases? How can the interaction between performance and visual art, specifically portraiture, open a window for a unique audience experience about racial identity?

Jerry Augustyniak joined in 1983. Together with artists like R.E.M. they defined college rock and created the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became know as the alternative rock format on FM radio. Writing and performing powerful, danceable and socially conscious original material in and around their hometown of Jamestown, New York the group toured extensively and produced two independently released records, Human Conflict Number Five ('82) and Secrets of the I Ching ('83) on their own Christian Burial Music label. By producing, manufacturing and marketing their own recordings 10,000 Maniacs were one of the original "indie" bands before signing with Elektra Records and making The Wishing Chair in 1985 with producer Joe Boyd (Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, REM). After touring extensively with REM and throughout Europe John Lombardo left the band in July of 1986 and the band continued as a 5 piece. In 1987 the Maniacs recorded and released In My Tribe. Produced by Peter Asher (James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt) this album broke into the charts, where it stayed 77 weeks, peaking at #37 and selling over two million copies. In My Tribe featured the hit singles "Don't Talk," "Hey Jack Kerouac," "Like The Weather" and "What's The Matter Here?"It was voted one of the 100 most important releases of the decade by Rolling Stone Magazine. Blind Man's Zoo, the 1989 follow-up, hit #13 on the Billboard charts and went platinum. It featured the hit singles, "Trouble Me and "Eat For Two." The following world tour featured several European festivals, a string of US amphitheatres and the renowned Fourth of July concert with the Grateful Dead in front of 80,000 in Buffalo NY. Our Time in Eden was released in 1992, and featured the hit singles, "Candy Everybody Wants" and "These Are Days" selling more than three million copies. Rolling Stone's four-star review called it a "…gripping new album …with a provocative, unnerving power." In November 1995, the Maniacs played dates in Cleveland and Chicago. The Cleveland Plain Dealer remarked of their Agora Ballroom show: "The band showed a sold-out crowd the path to its surprisingly smooth and viable rebirth…Saddled with the unenviable task of filling Merchant's shoes, Ramsey brilliantly rose to the occasion". The new lineup released Love Among the Ruins for Geffen Records in 1997, featuring a cover of Roxy Music's "More Than This," which went to #24 on the Billboard charts, the highest-charting single in the band's history. The Chicago Tribune noted "If the 11 new singles rolled out are any indication of things to come, the new incarnation of 10,000 Maniacs may eclipse the old" and the Chicago Sun Times simply said, "Natalie Who?" 10,000 Maniacs continued their grinding touring schedule, finding new fans in Mexico, Portugal and Brazil. In December of 2000 founding member Robert Buck died at the age of 42. After a three-year hiatus the Maniacs returned in 2003 with long time friend and former guitar tech Jeff Erickson on lead guitar. In 2004, Elektra/Asylum/Rhino Records released Campfire Songs: The Popular, Obscure and Unknown Recordings, a two CD set compilation featuring a broad array of their groundbreaking music including several unreleased tracks. In 2013 10,000 Maniacs released their first full-length album in 13 years. Music From The Motion Picture, was hailed as a beautiful affirmation of the band's classic poetic lyrics and dreamy Americana blend. The independent release was crowd-funded through Pledgemusic.com Today finds the band approaching their 33rd anniversary and hard at work on a new album, Twice Told Tales, a collection of traditional folk songs from the British Isles slated for release in early 2015. The album is their second venture in crowd funding through Pledgemusic.com

The Lost City of Z - BAM
Through May 25, 2017 - Brooklyn

Directed by James Gray | 2017 With Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller "A lavishly produced historical epic." —Rolling Stone Writer-director James Gray adapts David Grann's bestseller about the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam). At the dawn of the 20th century, Fawcett journeys into the Amazon and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as "savages," the determined Fawcett—supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland), and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson)—returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in Gray's classic filmmaking style, The Lost City of Z is both a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and an incisive portrait of a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Café
Through May 26, 2017 - Manhattan

Hilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, including No, No, Nanette, Irene, Half a Sixpence, and the burlesque musical Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, among many others. Now for the first time, Hilary Knight's stage-struck life is the subject of a comprehensive exhibition that includes original artwork for posters; theatrical illustrations for Vanity Fair magazine (where Knight is a contributing editor); Knight's most recent work — three-dimensional portraits in stage-like settings — and costume and set designs for performances and revues that reveal that for Hilary Knight, all the world is indeed a stage.

Oslo - Lincoln Center, Vivian Beaumont Theater
May 26, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

Conversing With Oceans - Rockwood Music Hall
May 26, 2017 - East Village

Conversing with Oceans is the solo project of Alex Bondarev. His narrative begins in Grozny, formerly of Russia, when the unrest of war led him and his family to immigrate first to India, and then to the Bronx. Having music as his anchor from an early age, he started his first band (A Moment's Worth) with his best friends from grammar school. Their brand of optimistic rock resonated deeply with audiences as they made front page news of New York Press, won the first College Battle of the Bands, and received the Elfenworks Social Justice Award for their song "Dedicate." In 2013, Alex and Elfenworks began their official partnership, working together closely to spread a message of hope. He has since composed music for Google and had placements in national television ads and programs. His compositions have over a million streams on SoundCloud. Alex's latest endeavor, which he describes as even an more authentic version of his voice—devotion to melody and expression of his characteristically introspective lyrical style. Collaborating with the team that engineered the Grammy-nominated "A Color Map of the Sun" (Pretty Lights), he spent the majority of 2015 in the studio honing his new songs, while steadily growing his audience at NYC's most trusted venues. CWO's first single "The Gold Rush" quickly landed him a one-on-one showcase with the legendary Randy Jackson at this year's SXSW and a global distribution deal with The Orchard. The upcoming single "Deeper" is a powerful testament to love, and features a collaboration with the Grammy-nominated John Forté, who co-wrote and produced Fugees' groundbreaking LP The Score.

House of Waters TV - Rockwood Music Hall
May 26, 2017 - East Village

House of Waters (GroundUP) "In today's world, there are no musical boundaries," says Max ZT of 'House of Waters,' a trio that makes those words come alive as they incorporate elements of West-African, jazz, psychedelic, indie rock, classical and world music into their astonishingly unique sound. Five years after their groundbreaking Revolution, House of Waters now returns with its eponymous follow-up. The album features Max on hammered dulcimer, Moto Fukushima on six-string bass and percussionist Luke Notary - Though now the band tours with Argentinian-born Ignacio Rivas-Bixio! The album also features virtuosic cellist Dave Eggar, flautist Sam Sadigursky and the singer Priya Darshini. "Our music is a constant melting pot, which is so relevant to now," says Max. "It's like that last D'Angelo record or Kendrick's Butterfly...you know, that wasn't just rap, or hip-hop, or jazz, or soul, but it had all of that. It's an amorphous thing. It's how the future is going to be." Moto agrees: "We always just say what we do is 'good music.' If I need to say something to someone who's never heard of us, I just say, 'Please come to our show!" House of Waters' music is both complex and easy to enjoy, a musical exploration that invites listeners to open themselves to new sounds. One of those sounds is that of Max's instrument, the hammered dulcimer, a percussion/stringed instrument that takes years of study and spans dozens of cultures around the globe. Most often associated with traditional American and Irish folk music, Max has taken the instrument in entirely new directions. "I've been playing it since I was 7," says Max. "And my folks reminded me I first fell in love with it when I was 2: I saw it performed at an exhibit opening, walked up to it, sat underneath and just listened to it for hours." Moto had a similar experience with the 6-stringed bass and it has defined his life ever since. His study of Western Classical music, Japanese traditional music and the African inspired musical sensibilities of South America, coupled with his undeniable virtuosity, adds a breath-taking element to the group's total sound. Luke studied with the legendary Hamza El Din, while Max studied with traditional musicians in Senegal and continues to learn from Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, India's master of the santoor (an ancestor of the hammered dulcimer.) "That experience," says Max, "opened me up to a whole separate world of traditions and philosophical thought." Joining forces has given each artist an opportunity to stretch their chosen instruments, to take risks to expand both the music and themselves. In the process, audiences cannot help but be thrilled by the enormity of their sound. The album House of Waters marks the band's first record for GroundUP, the artist-friendly label started by Snarky Puppy's Michael League. "There was a lot of mutual respect and interest there," says Max. "I think we bring something unique to their roster." He laughs. "Not a lot of dulcimer trios out there." Their GroundUP debut is a broad, cinematic piece, ranging from the slow burn of "La Semana," to the grand "Patience" and—a first for the band—a beautiful vocal assist by Priya Darshini on album standout "Hamza" Moto picks "Francesco" as his favorite. "That song was my first time writing parts for classical music styles and instruments in the band," he says. "And the song goes full arena rock at the end: I'm happy how we could connect delicate/complicated and hard/simple aspects with both organic and modern sound. Also, Max's solo in the middle is killer." The album's first available track, "17," encapsulates the record's complex nature. "It's a time signature: 17/8," says Max. "It's definitely odd, but we played at this traditional folk festival and people lost their minds! It's a pretty rockin' loud, aggressive song in an odd meter that hasn't really been heard in the West. It's fun, fast energy, and it plays into our virtuosity." But to truly experience House of Waters, see them live. "It's the benefit of this band's versatility—we fit in so many different fields," says Max. To that end, you might experience the band at any number of huge jazz or folk fests. Possibly at an Indian classical show. And maybe opening for the likes of Pt. Ravi Shankar, Snarky Puppy, Jimmy Cliff or the performing arts ensemble KODO. With musical and cultural influences that stretch from India and Senegal through Ireland and the heart of New York City, you have, as one critic noted, "The most original band on the planet."

Hamlet - Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
May 26, 2017 - New York

Tony nominee Arian Moayed (The Humans, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) offers a revelatory new reading of the "melancholy Dane". Set in Persia a hundred years ago, on the eve of World War I, Waterwell's Hamlet weaves passages of Farsi translation into the English of Shakespeare's masterpiece of crisis and identity. In it, a traditional way of life is being threatened by an evolving world, the land is being threatened by encroaching foreign interests, and a young man finds himself uprooted and torn between opposing customs, values and codes. Featuring a vibrant score that seamlessly blends traditional Persian and modern western elements, this is a bold re-imagining of most renowned play in any language.

The Smithereens - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
May 26, 2017 - New York

he Smithereens' three-decade history is a story of substance, integrity and persistence triumphing over shallow artifice and transient trendiness--of hard-working underdogs achieving success on their own terms by sticking to their guns and ignoring the dictates of pop fashion and music-industry convention. Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken and original bassist Mike Mesaros grew up in Carteret, New Jersey, forging a friendship as teenagers through a mutual love of '60s rock 'n' roll and other vintage sounds. After meeting the similarly inclined DiNizio, the four formed the Smithereens, and won some local renown with a pair of independently released EPs, 1980's Girls About Town and 1983's Beauty and Sadness. Through it all, the Smithereens have maintained a busy performing schedule, preserving their reputation as one of rock's hardest-working live bands, and continuing to thrill the devoted fan base that's stuck with them over the years. "These days, the band is playing as well as we've ever played, with more focus and more intensity," DiNizio asserts, adding, "We still feel like we have something to prove. We have to hit a grand slam every night, and we have to be twice as good as bands half our age. And we've got this body of work that spans over 30 years, so we'll play at least two, two-and-a-half hours every night and bang through the songs like a freight train." Brandishing heavy guitars and an unabashed fetish for British Invasion Pop, The Smithereens carved their niche on album rock radio and earned a reputation as a great concert attraction with sizzling pop songs including: "A GIRL LIKE YOU" "ONLY A MEMORY" "BLOOD & ROSES" "BEHIND THE WALL OF SLEEP" "HOUSE WE USED TO LIVE IN" "TOP OF THE POPS" "DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS" The Smithereens >> The Smithereens @ Facebook >>

The Howlin' Souls - Rockwood Music Hall
May 26, 2017 - East Village

Formed in Downtown Manhattan in 2012, The Howlin' Souls have emerged onto the music scene with a fresh yet classic sound that has been welcomed by critics & fans alike. Singer/Songwriter Pete Smith has infused his Indiana roots into his songs with raspy and honest vocals and lyrics reminiscent of Petty and Dylan. Pete'sguitar playing is supported by lead guitarist and New York native Scott Sepe, who lends his nostalgic riffs to the Souls' sound, pulling from the blues standards he mastered as a teenager. The rhythm section is comprised of New England natives Nate Lang (drums) and Robbie Sokolowsky (bass). Their shared love of Classic Blues, Motown and R&B offer a humble yet infectious backbeat groove. The Howlin' Souls' collective influence includes British Rock greats The Rolling Stones, as well as the blues legends that inspired them - Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed and the iconic Howlin' Wolf (whom they honor in their name). Long time engineer with time at CBGBs, Record Plant NYC, Sigma NYC and others, as well as touring with Miles Davis, the Stones, Prince and other icons of music, Fritz Lang co-produced the record with songwriter Pete Smith. Smith and Sokolowsky self-produce the band's music videos while Lang has been taking roles in front of the camera, most recently as drummer Carl Tanner in the Oscar nominated film Whiplash. The band has released 2 videos, "Blackheart" and"Anyway You Take It," with more to come this summer.

Broke Royals - Rockwood Music Hall
May 26, 2017 - East Village

Broke Royals never intended to fuel a political revolution with their music. For Philip Basnight and Colin Cross, The Luxury of Time EP Series, embodies the realization of early adulthood that time is a precious commodity. But halfway across the world, as a military coup overcame Thailand's people in May of 2014, its citizens heard Broke Royals' debut single, "About Time", through different, more political ears. When the song went viral in the midst of Thailand's political coup, Basnight and Cross realized that what had begun as a personal musical undertaking between two friends was now something closer to universal. Basnight and Cross have been playing music together since early 2014, elevating each other's talents from every angle. As the owner of Unkempt & Overcaffeinated Studios, Colin has been able to help transform Basnight's prolific songwriting into richly layered, energetic, and stirring tracks. Based in DC, they tour the East Coast extensively - having shared the stage with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Car Seat Headrest, Real Estate and Life in Film.

May 26, 2017 - East Village

Incredibly fast, dynamic drum rhythms keep your feet moving while the overall sound holds you in a dreamlike trance. Electric guitars and rock themes interweave so that the mood, and the room, can be transformed immediately and without warning. Set to release their debut album in early 2016, Jouwala Collective is a unique musical force soon to be reckoned with.

Good Morning Bedlam - Rockwood Music Hall
May 26, 2017 - East Village

Good Morning Bedlam is often mistaken as siblings, owing partly to their members' similar looks: two curly, red-haired girls and two guys with Minnesota tattoos and piercings. But their cohesion goes beyond appearances. Their show is an explosion of energy with soaring harmonies, a banjo player that scissor-kicks in the air, a string bass that will shake your chest, and a beat that will have your foot stomping through the floor. One fan describes their music as "furious folk!" Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music."We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound," says Isaak, frontman of GMB. One moment they are blasting through a jubilant bluegrass tune, headbanging and careening around the stage, and in the next, Sophia, their fiddler is dancing the Charleston during what can only be described as a modern folk swing dance song. Just when you think you have Good Morning Bedlam pegged, they take you in another direction. You will be treated to a haunting waltz, whistling, jazz scatting, banjo licks, a bass spin, and the euphoria of the violin melodies. When it comes to their lyrical storytelling, Isaak says, "We're desperate to connect to people through the common human experiences that we write about and the exuberance of our live show. People have a lot of choices of how they'll kick-back, so we intend to deliver a show where they can be free--to share in whatever they need to--joy, grief, anger, gratefulness, or bedlam!" After their national tour in the summer of 2016, Good Morning Bedlam signed with Minneapolis record label Last Triumph and released their first full-length album, Prodigal, and continued to tour the Midwest through the winter. Since playing six shows at SXSW 2017 in Austin, Texas as part of the Last Triumph showcase, Good Morning Bedlam is becoming an innovative force in the Midwest folk scene. 2017 holds big plans for Good Morning Bedlam as they gear up for their second national tour this summer. In October of 2017 they'll begin recording their sophomore album at Last Triumph studios. ???Guitar, Vocals / Isaak Gill Elker Violin, Vocals / Sophia Mae Banjo, Vocals / Noah Pearson Upright Bass, Vocals / Victoria Elker

Radical Bodies - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Cafe
Through May 26, 2017 -

In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody Gottfried Arnhold

The Shadows of Knight - Cutting Room
May 26, 2017 - New York

The Shadows of Knight Who knew that those three legendary chords could create such a long, interesting history for The Shadows of Knight. The band was formed in 1964, originally as The Shadows. They became The Shadows of Knight in 1965 featuring Jim Sohns, Warren Rogers, Wayne Pursell, Tom Schiffour, and Norm Gotsch. Right as they were hitting it big, Pursell and Gotsch left the band, recruiting Jerry McGeorge and Joe Kelley. This is the lineup that recorded the two most well known Shadows of Knight albums, "Gloria" and "Backdoor Men". David "Hawk" Wolinski was recruited as the Organ Player, and later replaced Rogers on bass after he was drafted into the US Military. This lineup lasted about 18 months before Sohns fired the entire band. After 4 billboard charting hits, the "classic" lineup of SOK was no more. Sohns performed as the SOK with many different lineups, and in 1969, the Shadows of Knight released one last million seller, "Shake". This was with a Jimy Sohns and a totally different Super K lineup. Sohns has never stopped touring as The Shadows of Knight. After 37 years of no new albums, The Shadows of Knight released "A Knight to Remember" in 2006, to critical acclaim. In August of 2016, The ORIGINAL Shadows of Knight got back together for one last show in Arlington Heights for the first time since 1967. But the history doesn't end there...Sohns continues to rock festivals, arenas, casinos, clubs, and anywhere that he feels like to this very day. 51 years later and you can still hear the crowd scream "G L O R I A!!!!"

The Gil Evans Project directed by Ryan Truesdell - Jazz Standard
Through May 26, 2017 - New York

For decades after his death in 1988 at age 75, the only way to perform Gil Evans' music was through (often inaccu­rate) transcriptions. But the magic of Evans' writing lies in the details – his use of harmony, his unique approach to orchestration and instrumentation, and his singularly detailed rhythmic and nota­tional struc­ture. After years of painstaking research, and with the full support of the Evans family, Ryan Truesdell and the Gil Evans Project have made it possible to per­form Gil's music in its purest form, di­rectly from his manuscripts. In 2013, the ensemble's recording of "How About You" (from the ArtistShare album Centennial) won for Gil Evans the GRAMMY Award for Best Instrumental Arrange­ment. This much–anticipated return engagement includes two nights (5/27–5/28) celebrating the 60th an­niversary of Miles Davis and Gil Evans' 1957 album Miles Ahead. "Superb renderings of some of the fin­est writing of the postwar big band period. Players are uniformly excellent, but the star 'soloist' is the el­egant ensemble amalgams that Truesdell found hiding among brass and reeds that others had missed. He makes familiar material worth hearing again." (Downbeat) Ryan Truesdell – conductor Steve Wilson, Dave Pietro, Donny McCaslin, Tom Christensen, Alden Banta – reeds Adam Unsworth, David Peel – French horns Augie Haas, Scott Wendholt, Mike Rodriguez – trumpets Ryan Keberle, Marshall Gilkes, George Flynn (bass trombone) – trombones Marcus Rojas – tuba Wendy Gilles – voice Frank Kimbrough – piano Jay Anderson – bass Lewis Nash – drums

The Russ Nolan Quartet - Smalls Live
May 26, 2017 - New York City

Russ Nolan's current release, 'Sanctuary from the Ordinary – Live at Firehouse 12' was voted onto DownBeat magazine's 'Best of 2016' list and he has been voted onto their Rising Star Annual Critics Poll consistently. His music is often described as High-Energy Modern Jazz that both satisfies the intellect of its musical peers and speaks to everyone on a soulful level. Called a 'renaissance man' by those close to him, he has taken his experiences in sports, dance, martial arts, business, after-school program volunteering, music education, and other activities to relate to a wider audience. Russ is an accomplished and active Salsa dancer in NYC and has used his inspiration on the dance floor to craft his last three Latin and Modern Jazz releases Tell Me (2012); Relentless (2014) – featuring Latin Jazz Grammy Nominee Manuel Valera on piano; Call It What You Want (2015). Previous recordings include With You in Mind with the Kenny Werner Trio. His original compositions draw influences from Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Bill Evans, Chick Corea and are infused with Afro-Cuban, Samba, Bossa Nova, Bolero, and Mambo rhythms. Russ' ability to relate to non-jazz audiences is demonstrated in his jazz treatments of Pop Standards from The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Stevie Wonder.

10,000 Maniacs - Sold Out, Sign up for Wait List! - City Winery
Through May 26, 2017 - New York

10,000 MANIACS One of the most critically acclaimed bands of the last three decades, 10,000 Maniacs were founded by Robert Buck, Dennis Drew, Steven Gustafson, John Lombardo and Natalie Merchant in the fall of 1981. Jerry Augustyniak joined in 1983. Together with artists like R.E.M. they defined college rock and created the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became know as the alternative rock format on FM radio. Writing and performing powerful, danceable and socially conscious original material in and around their hometown of Jamestown, New York the group toured extensively and produced two independently released records, Human Conflict Number Five ('82) and Secrets of the I Ching ('83) on their own Christian Burial Music label. By producing, manufacturing and marketing their own recordings 10,000 Maniacs were one of the original "indie" bands before signing with Elektra Records and making The Wishing Chair in 1985 with producer Joe Boyd (Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, REM). After touring extensively with REM and throughout Europe John Lombardo left the band in July of 1986 and the band continued as a 5 piece. In 1987 the Maniacs recorded and released In My Tribe. Produced by Peter Asher (James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt) this album broke into the charts, where it stayed 77 weeks, peaking at #37 and selling over two million copies. In My Tribe featured the hit singles "Don't Talk," "Hey Jack Kerouac," "Like The Weather" and "What's The Matter Here?"It was voted one of the 100 most important releases of the decade by Rolling Stone Magazine. Blind Man's Zoo, the 1989 follow-up, hit #13 on the Billboard charts and went platinum. It featured the hit singles, "Trouble Me and "Eat For Two." The following world tour featured several European festivals, a string of US amphitheatres and the renowned Fourth of July concert with the Grateful Dead in front of 80,000 in Buffalo NY. Our Time in Eden was released in 1992, and featured the hit singles, "Candy Everybody Wants" and "These Are Days" selling more than three million copies. Rolling Stone's four-star review called it a "…gripping new album …with a provocative, unnerving power." In November 1995, the Maniacs played dates in Cleveland and Chicago. The Cleveland Plain Dealer remarked of their Agora Ballroom show: "The band showed a sold-out crowd the path to its surprisingly smooth and viable rebirth…Saddled with the unenviable task of filling Merchant's shoes, Ramsey brilliantly rose to the occasion". The new lineup released Love Among the Ruins for Geffen Records in 1997, featuring a cover of Roxy Music's "More Than This," which went to #24 on the Billboard charts, the highest-charting single in the band's history. The Chicago Tribune noted "If the 11 new singles rolled out are any indication of things to come, the new incarnation of 10,000 Maniacs may eclipse the old" and the Chicago Sun Times simply said, "Natalie Who?" 10,000 Maniacs continued their grinding touring schedule, finding new fans in Mexico, Portugal and Brazil. In December of 2000 founding member Robert Buck died at the age of 42. After a three-year hiatus the Maniacs returned in 2003 with long time friend and former guitar tech Jeff Erickson on lead guitar. In 2004, Elektra/Asylum/Rhino Records released Campfire Songs: The Popular, Obscure and Unknown Recordings, a two CD set compilation featuring a broad array of their groundbreaking music including several unreleased tracks. In 2013 10,000 Maniacs released their first full-length album in 13 years. Music From The Motion Picture, was hailed as a beautiful affirmation of the band's classic poetic lyrics and dreamy Americana blend. The independent release was crowd-funded through Pledgemusic.com Today finds the band approaching their 33rd anniversary and hard at work on a new album, Twice Told Tales, a collection of traditional folk songs from the British Isles slated for release in early 2015. The album is their second venture in crowd funding through Pledgemusic.com

"Like the best Irish coffee, Minnock's voice is smooth and bold, with a good dose of Bushmills to give it a smoldering kick…stellar chops…creative phrasing; impressive scatting" (Kevin Scott Hall, Bistro Awards). A classically trained musician, John's vocalizing recalls the likes of Billy Eckstein, Lou Rawls, George Benson and B.B. King.

His wide repertoire of song renditions spans classic artists like King, Ruth Brown and Bill Withers to contemporaries such as Sara Bareilles, Amy Winehouse and Sam Smith. "One of the best versions of 'On Broadway' I've ever heard." (Bistro Awards). John leads a trio of accomplished musicians and keeps the energy moving throughout the evening. Before bringing his show to NYC, John performed weekly at Boston's Encore Lounge, in one of the most successful jazz gigs in Boston.

BASSment Saturdays ft PhaseOne Laetus, Evac Protocol - Webster Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

Monomyth - The Chocolate Factory Theater
Through May 27, 2017 - Long Island City

The Monomyth explores narratives of loneliness and solitude, following the trajectory of a soloist through a continuous movement experience. American culture idealizes the individual, yet we are living in what has been called “the Age of Loneliness,” where competition and cultural suppression trump connection, cooperation, and support for varied expressions of self. At the same time, solitude is often a necessary component for artistic exploration and spiritual transformation. The Monomyth references writer Joseph Campbell’s idea of the hero’s narrative, where an individual undergoes a solitary process of transformation on behalf of a larger community. The dance is paired with music sourced from disco, and is ultimately a celebration of connection through the alchemy of movement and presence. Created and performed by Michelle Boulé. Lighting design: Natalie Robin. Sound Designer: Curtis Tamm.

Oslo - Lincoln Center, Vivian Beaumont Theater
May 27, 2017 - Upper West Side

Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls OSLO "the stuff of crackling theater." Now, this sweeping and surprisingly funny new play comes to Broadway following its sold-out Off-Broadway run. OSLO is inspired by the amazing true story of the back-channel talks, unlikely friendships and quiet heroics that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between the Israelis and Palestinians. As he did with such wit and intelligence in Blood and Gifts, playwright J.T. Rogers presents a deeply personal story set against a complex historical canvas — a story about the individuals behind world history and their all too human ambitions. New York Magazine calls OSLO "gripping and remarkably entertaining." And at this cultural moment when finding common ground is paramount, "OSLO gives us hope" (Daily News). Bartlett Sher directs.

Melissa Polinar - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

North Texas-raised singer-songwriter Melissa had first embarked on her musical journey when the world was already seeing what it could reap from its digital revolution. Careers were hatched all about by means of viral social media presence and grassroots fueling, which included Melissa during her first steps into the music industry. She began her career as a YouTuber, uploading several videos which, since her 2008 debut on the site, have garnered millions of views – which, unlike many YouTube-oriented musicians, were mainly focused on her originals rather than any covers. Songs like "Try" and "Meant to Be" solidified her presence on the popular video sharing website as not just a bona fide singer, but an authentic songwriter steeped within poise and sincerity. A winning amalgamation of Polinar's smooth, soulful vocals, heart-bearing lyrical content, and passionate musicianship had even made music industry veterans and leaders avid fans. Among these industry heavyweights are Questlove, India.Arie, Mark Kibble (of Take 6), Jay Sean, Karmin, Ernie Halter, and Tony Lucca. Polinar's independently released full-length album, 'Calls & Echoes', was produced by another trio of notable forces within the industry: David Ryan Harris (John Mayer, India.Arie, Guy Sebastian), Josiah Bell (Estelle Darlings, Johnnyswim, Mat Kearney), and Jesse Barrera (AJ Rafael, Jeremy Passion, My American Heart). Combining the best elements of her retrospective, honest, and intrinsic acoustic soul and folk stylings, the project truly encapsulates all of what makes Polinar a true artist through her knack for cohesive versatility and heart. -Jonathan Frahm

EH440 - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

Eh440, the incredible Toronto-based vocal group has been stunning audiences worldwide since they first hit the stage a few years ago. With just a beatboxer, bass vocalist, and 3 very different lead singers, this means that they are technically an 'a cappella' group but most people think of them as something very different. "You forget that there aren't any instruments because they really do sound like a full band!" said one fan. "They sound hip and current. It's a 'must-hear' sound. And I love that they write their own songs because it makes me feel so connected to them and their lives." Following the release of their award-winning 2014 debut album, Turn Me Up, Eh440 wanted to step things up to a new level. A level they hadn't yet achieved – the Boss Level ! Boss Level is a phrase that stems from gaming culture and is now starting to creep into the mainstream. In a video game, the final level to win the game (where you encounter & battle the biggest & strongest character - the boss) is called the Boss Level. But now, any ultimate level of achievement where you take on your most formidable foe is the boss level. When they started preparing for their next album, the band claims that the songs felt very 'top level' so when they wrote Boss Level, naturally that was going to be the title track. Boss Level's 2016 release has generated some exciting fan reviews too. Some are saying they can't stop playing it on repeat. Others are saying that a particular song has inspired them in some way. So, this latest release is clearly a step in a new direction for Eh440 and they are getting exactly what the album title says 'boss level feedback about a boss level album' and they couldn't be more excited!

John Nemeth - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

Don't try to snatch him back and hold him, he's a man on the move. John Németh had already established himself among the very top ranks of blues musicians and modern soul singers when he decided to break the mold with his new record, FEELIN' FREAKY. Németh fearlessly crushes all barriers of style and genre with an album of original songs that defies all the usual pigeonholes. Drawing from his strong influences in blues and R&B, as well as contemporary sounds in hip hop and rock & roll, John creates music that is personal as well as universal, and owes its origin to no one but John Németh. John's songs are groove and melody-driven, laced with thoughtful lyrics and nuanced humor, and cover themes from social issues of gun violence and class values to the pure hedonistic joy of dancing, sexuality and marijuana. He creates his songs from melodies and phrases he draws from the sounds of life, from early-morning Memphis songbirds to the din of the city. For this album John brought his new songs to his great touring band, the Blue Dreamers – Danny Banks on drums, Matthew Wilson on bass and guitar, and Johnny Rhodes on guitar – so they could hone the groove and finish building the album as a group. Under the simpatico guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), FEELIN' FREAKY emerges as a modern personal masterpiece. This album is a testament to power with taste and restraint, dramatic dynamics through the use of space. Németh's striking tenor vocals are already legendary, with a pitch-perfect purity of range and power that has drawn comparisons to soul singers from O.V. Wright to James Brown. He keeps that power under a tight leash, letting it rip at just the right places, using his voice to deliver and serve the song. Németh is also a very accomplished harmonica player who can boogie with the best of them, in various diatonic positions as well as on the mighty Chromatic harp, yet he plays relatively little on this record. What he plays are largely horn lines, trumpet-like staccato blasts that serve to create dramatic dynamic shifts, tension and release, all in service to the song, not the ego of the player. The few solos he delivers are concise, tasty and powerful. FEELIN' FREAKY was recorded at the Dickinson family's Zebra Ranch Studios in Mississippi and Willie Mitchell's legendary Royal Studios in Memphis. Németh's touring band on their instruments and background vocals is at the heart of the recordings, along with musicians hand-picked to complement the individual tracks. John often works with horns, and Memphis players Marc Franklin (trumpet, flugelhorn) and Art Edmaiston (Tenor, Bari sax) deliver echoes of classic Memphis sound all over this record. Németh and Dickinson agreed that the B-3 Organ parts had to go to Charles Hodges, who contributed so much to the Hi Records sound on albums by the likes of Al Green and Ann Peebles. For extra depth and sweetness, they added strings by J. Kirkscey, B. Luscombe, J. Munson and P. Tsai.

Elf Power - Baby's All Right
May 27, 2017 - Brooklyn

Elf Power formed in 1994 and over the last 19 years have released twelve albums, two eps, and a handful of singles, while touring North America, Europe, and Japan many times. Albums such as 1998's Dave Fridmann-produced "A Dream In Sound" and 2008's collaboration with the late Vic Chesnutt, "Dark Developments" have cemented the bands' reputation as the finest purveyors of modern melodic pychedelic folk rock around. Their latest album, "Sunlight On The Moon" combines the scuzzy, sleazy recording qualities of their early lo-fi masterworks with their powerful live bombast, with experiments in Kraftwerk-styled/Eno-esque drum machine minimalism, into a seamless, perfectly flowing whole. The album's release on October 1, 2013 coincides with American tour dates with the recently revived Neutral Milk Hotel, with whom Elf Power did their first big national tour 15 years ago in 1998! Many more headlining shows throughout America and Europe are planned for the fall and spring. Singer/songwriter Andrew Rieger and longtime collaborator multi-instrumentalist Laura Carter are joined by James Huggins(Of Montreal/Great Lakes) on bass, and Peter Alvanos on drums, though all the members play a wide variety of instruments on the recordings. Longtime collaborator Bryan Poole(Of Montreal) still joins the band on guitar at live shows. The band recorded the latest record in a variety of settings ranging from singer/songwriter Andrew Rieger's home studio, to Athens, GA's The Glow studio, to Lavonia, GA's Gypsy Farm Studios, a long derelict country music theatre located in rural Georgia. Newly renovated and transformed into a recording studio, the beautiful auditorium hosted concerts from the likes of Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and George Jones throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the songs sprung from a return to Elf Power's original mode of songwriting, writing and recording the song simultaneously without rehearsal. Songs like "Lift the Shell", "A Grey Cloth Covering My Face" and "Things Lost" were recorded as they were being written with Rieger playing all of the basic instrumentation and other band members later embellishing the creations with their own flavors. Often, a more fully rehearsed "full band" version was recorded as well, but the more minimalistic original versions were preferred for their stranger, looser qualities. "Sunlight On The Moon" sees release on October 1, 2013 as a joint release on Darla Records / Orange Twin Records. Orange Twin Records works in conjunction with The Orange Twin Conservation Community, 155 acres of beautiful land on the outskirts of Athens that has initiated the development of a highly progressive, self-sustainable and ecologically-minded cluster village and nature preserve.

I'm named after a Lebanese poet, my Mom's favorite poet. I like my mom, sometimes. She'd tell me to edit that, but I'm not too concerned with grammar. As long as the point gets across, "the meaning of the communication is the response it elicits." I don't know who said that, but I collect quotes in a word document on my laptop called "quotes." The quotes range from optimism to cynicism to contemplative silliness. I also range from optimism to cynicism to contemplative silliness. Optimism in myself and others, cynicism in the simple happy thoughts lost when we lose touch with our inner youth. As for the contemplative silliness, I'm still thinking about it. One of my favorite quotes is by Salvidor Dali, "Everything alter's me, but nothing changes me." It's one of my favorite quotes for two reasons. One, Salvador Dali is one of my favorite artists. His perspective embraces a magical reality that makes one consider the world beyond the limited scope of everyday events and interactions. Two, because I believe that at the core we are all powerful individuals with equally robust personalities. It's just that we are affected by certain things over time. Somethings for better, somethings for worse. It is how we let these things alter us that make us who we are. Beyond all the veneers and shields we have developed overtime we are all still the same silly little children; running with tiny bodies and giant heads falling all over the place. We've just figured out ways to cushion the fall. But we're still the same, we're still falling all over the place. I used to write poetry at one point. But I fell. I've found other ways to channel out those emotions. Sometimes those emotions turn to laughter. Sometimes not. It doesn't matter as long as there's growth. I don't want to be the old me. I don't want to be the new me, or the current me. I just want to be the best me. I want to maximize my potential. And in turn maybe it will help other's maximize their own. Maybe not, but still, it something's to work towards. Now residing in New York, the North Carolina native, Jourdain Fisher is a comedian on the rise. With his fun material and open personality, audiences are drawn to his style and sense of humor. Jourdain is consistently pushing himself to create the best comedy experience for any venue he plays and has been doing so as a nationally touring act for the past seven years. After performing stand up for the first time at the age of 17 he continued to do so through high school and college.

Eva Gertz - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

Eva Gertz was born in Boston, MA to a mosaicist and interior-designing mother, and a jazz bassist and music-teaching father. As a teenager, Eva faced a difficult decision to "choose" between art and music, since public schools often scheduled all creative classes or "electives" at the same hour. Instead, she made a deal with her high school principal: so long as she upheld good grades, half of the week she could attend chorus, where she valued her role as piano accompanist, and the other half of the week she could attend art class, where her longing to express and create things was fulfilled. Some years later, Eva discovered that music could also satisfy most of her creative needs. She attended Berklee College of Music, earning a Bachelor's degree in Contemporary Writing and Production with a minor in Conducting. Her hard work and development as a composer and arranger have led her to write for prestigious visiting artists at Berklee, such as film composer A.R. Rahman, Peruvian singer Susana Baca, and Spanish singer-songwriter Julio Iglesias. In addition to composing and arranging the music of others, Eva also invests her time into personal artistry and writing songs that evoke meaningful sentiments about human mentalities and the nature around us. She draws influences from revered folk artists including Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell and theatrical pop composers whose music she grew up with, such as Jason Robert Brown and Stephen Schwartz. Eva continues to write and direct music, perform and accompany on piano, and immerse herself in creative communities and projects at every opportunity. She turned out to be a very creative musician-artist, and through the process, discovered that one can be an artist simply by exploring how to live life to its fullest. Eva currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.

Jenna Lotti - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

??Jenna Lotti is a pop soul singer-songwriter from Boston, MA. Originally writing poetry for self-medication, Lotti began penning open book lyrics at the age of 15. Singing only to herself and close friends eventually she was convinced to attend a local open mic in Boston. After nervously singing an original song to an iPod recording, she was met with very positive response from the small crowd which led to further musical experimentation. Over the next few years she incessantly wrote tunes, learned to play the guitar and started recording YouTube videos (in her bathroom). Drawing from her childhood musical influences in pop, blues, soul and big band Lotti's music is a soulful distillation that flirts with both her stirring and sweet sides. After countless open mic's and years on YouTube she started booking small shows around Boston. As her shows grew larger, so did her band and her collection of original songs. In 2013 she created a successful kick-starter campaign which led to the creation of her debut album "Tunnel Vision". The 9 song LP propelled her career into the next stage showcasing her songwriting and musical capabilities. Tunes such as "Red Line Love" (w/ accompanying music video), "Strangers" and "Medicine" drew wide acclaim by fans and local media. BIO HOME ABOUT MUSIC "From the opening riff to the closing stab, the new EP "Bad Habits" from Jenna Lotti delivers. The Boston singer/songwriter showcases an evolving maturity in both songwriting and vocals on her second release, and the production is tight throughout. From fun, blues-tinged sass to serious harmonies – reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles – these 5 songs, laced with memorable hooks, serve as a marker Jenna is throwing down to the world: "I am here. You must listen." And those who do, are in for a treat." - Matt Reid MIX 104.1 "It's exciting when a young and gifted singer chooses to record a single that pays tribute to our blues and jazz heritage, yet could still sound at home on a pop radio playlist. Lotti unloosens her soul in "Bad Habits" rather than relying on the studio gimmicks that numb so much of today's chart-topping music." - Carter Alan WZLX? ? Jenna received the nod for Limelight Magazine's 2015 'Female Vocalist of the Year' and was nominated for "Female Performer of the Year" in 2016 & 2017 by The New England Music Awards.This recognition was punctuated by invitations to open for national acts such as Hunter Hayes and Buddy Guy as well as a local star, Ruby Rose Fox. Lotti released her sophomore EP, Bad Habits, in October 2016 and is set to release her next pop driven single, "Beauty Queen", in April 2017.

Echo Bloom - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

I grew up in the South and listened to a lot of local radio growing up - Molly Hatchet and Lynyrd Skynyrd. In addition to that, my parents listened to a mixture of Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals (The King and I, Oklahoma!, etc.) and 60's surf rock, mostly the The Beach Boys and Jan and Dean. So that was all swirling in the background, but I didn't pick up an instrument until college. When I was in school (University of Florida) I got heavily into electroacoustic music, really experimental, academic stuff, which got me excited about recording. I moved to Washington DC after college and started recording some sketches of things I had written, which eventually mutated into songs. I had recorded everything solo, but needed a live band, so I formed The Rosemont Family Reunion. We toured around the East Coast, and after a bit reformed as Echo The three songs that I thought were the best on the record were "The Prostitute," "The English Teacher", and "The Businessman". So I decided to write a record around each of them. Because there were three, all slightly different genres, I found myself thinking about them as different seasons, or different countries, or, finally, different colors. 'Blue' would be the more folk-oriented one, 'Red' would be more country rock, and 'Green' would be more classic pop. When I started to write Blue, I realized that the sound I was hearing in my head was larger and more symphonic than anything I'd done before. I knew that I wanted things to be specific, and I'd need time to learn how to write the parts. So I moved to Berlin to focus on things. Berlin turned out to be the perfect location for focusing - I didn't know anybody or speak the language, so I didn't have many distractions. All there was to do was write, and occasionally bike through the city for inspiration, letting the rhythms of the city soak into my thinking. A few months later, I was done.

YumYum Beast - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

YumYum Beast is an original rock band from Haiku, Hawaii. The band began in 2013 as an acoustic duo in Portland, Oregon, with Matthew Del Olmo and Justin Morris. They had just gotten off the road from a long stretch of touring, and were full of inspiration. Matt and Justin simply started writing and their songs flowed effortlessly. They built their first batch of material in North Portland, Oregon, and performed often in the local scene there. The following year they relocated to the Island of Maui, Hawaii, where they continued writing and performing. Justin and Matt met drummer James Bowersox and bassist John Micheal Jelliffe on Maui. Soon after that sonic explosion the band began performing electrified as a four piece, and created the sound the world now knows as "YumYum Beast." YumYum Beast writes and performs original songs and sound-scapes. The band creates their sound with drums, bass, guitar, acoustic lap steel, and 5 string banjo. YumYum Beast's main focus is to bring people together and to connect people with the band and with each other.

Dave Mooney & the Aztec Gypsy - Rockwood Music Hall
May 27, 2017 - East Village

Dave Mooney is a small-town New Jersey singer/songwriter whose poetic songs are creating sound waves all their own. His Alternative/Indie tones mixed with that Jersey edge are bringing him up right and then some. After first hearing AC/DC's "Highway to Hell", Dave fell in love with the guitar and from then allowed his love of music to pour out into other instruments. Dave began playing in bands at 11 years old and began writing his own songs at 13 when he started to study The Beatles (an obsession that continues to this day). His instructor, Chuck, taught him to do all of these things, but more so how to feel music, he learned the importance of being able to present your emotions into a song and not look back. Those lessons had and still have an extremely large impact on the way Dave creates. His poetic songs and honest lyrics are more than enough to be tried and true to what he learned from his mentor. Mooney released his solo album, "Costumes and Crowns" in October 2015. His reviews have been more than welcoming to the music scene. You can catch Dave doing acoustic shows or electric gigs with his backing band, The Aztec Gypsy, all around the tri-state area.

Since his 1996 arrival in New York, Oz has made a huge impact on the local and international music scene. His unique style has broken all the rules of instrumental guitar music by focusing on the groove. All-stars such as Keith Carlock, Anton Fig, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Dave Weckl often contribute on drums, with bassists Will Lee, James Genus, and Reggie Washington. In 2003, Oz released his debut record – "Oz Live" – recorded at NYC's legendary Bitter End. April 2016 Oz Release his 8th studio album "Who Gives A Funk", featuring very special guests Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, Dweezil Zappa, Fred Wesley, Chris Potter, John Medeski & Corey Glover. For his accomplishments as a trend-setting guitarist, Oz won the highly acclaimed Guitar Player magazine readers poll for "Best guitar riff on a record" (2007), "Best new talent" (2008), and "Best out there guitar player" (2013). Oz also conducts periodic master classes at The Collective School of Music (New York City), Musicians Institute (Los Angeles), and others. Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, the "World's Most Recorded Drummer", was born June 11, 1939 in Elkton, Maryland as the eleventh of fifteen children. At 14 years of age he purchased his first real drum set and became the most important provider for the family – earning his pay with country and carnival bands. This "schooling" enabled Purdie to "feel my way into nearly every kind of music, 'cause I had to know all styles and was never afraid to try something new." Purdie moved to New York in 1960 after finishing high school and played with (among others), Lonnie Youngblood before landing his first hit with King Curtis. This led to his engagement with Aretha Franklin in 1970 – the beginning of an unparalleled career. Since then, Purdie has been a regular guest in the studios of the stars of Jazz, Soul, and Rock, working together with Paul Butterfield as well as Larry Coryell, Miles Davis, Hall & Oates, Al Kooper, Herbie Mann, Todd Rundgren and Cat Stevens, as well as regularly producing his own solo albums under his own name. Which musician did Aretha Franklin definitely NOT want missing from the line-up when she recorded her most inspired albums at the beginning of the seventies? Who provided the back-beat for Steely Dan's "Aja", and for whom have Isaac Hayes, Donny Hathaway, B.B. King, "Sweet" Lou Donaldson, Joe Cocker and Hank Crawford reserved that stool behind the drum kit? No other drummer in the last three decades has seen the interior of a recording studio as often as Bernard, having laid down the beat on over 3000 albums to date. This short list does however, prove an idea of the unique qualities this man possesses. Colleagues describe the drummer's style as the "funkiest soul beat" in the business, and Purdie has decidedly never limited his talents to the realm of jazz but rather has consistently sought out new musical experiences beyond its borders. He has anchored sessions with the Rolling Stones, James Brown and Tom Jones with equal ease and proven that – with all his attention to precision playing – terms such as "drive" and "GROOVE" are definitely not missing from his vocabulary. William Franklin "Will" Lee IV (born September 8, 1952) is an American bassist known for his work on the Late Show with David Letterman as part of the CBS Orchestra. Born in San Antonio, Texas, Lee has recorded and toured with many artists. He appeared on the Mark & Clark Band's hit record Worn Down Piano. He performs with his Beatles tribute band, The Fab Faux, which he co-founded in 1998. Lee was greatly influenced to pursue music because of his parents. His father, William Franklin Lee III played piano, trumpet and the upright bass professionally. Lee's mother sang with big bands. Lee took up drums after seeing the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, and by the time he was 12 had formed his first band in Miami. The band members each earned $9 a night playing the popular surfing tunes characteristic of the 60s. With the great numbers of drummers in Miami, Lee shifted to bass, an instrument that offered more opportunities. Lee was part of a succession of bands including top 40 bands with names like "Chances R" "The Loving Kind", and "Green Cloud." Lee had a formal musical education at the University of Miami. He studied French horn for a year and then switched to a bass major. After classes, he worked on bass fundamentals listening to not only the Beatles, but also Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Steve Miller, The Rascals, Motown, Sly & the Family Stone, among others. Lee then went to New York City. Trumpeter Randy Brecker called Lee out of class one day and invited him to audition for Dreams. In New York, Lee's career as a session musician flourished, and he toured with many artists. Lee played in the New York "24th Street Band" which had great success in Japan, giving him a solo artist career that yielded him a top 5 single. Most recently, his solo CD entitled OH! reached the #1 position on the "Jazz Beyond" chart there. In 1982, Lee became one of the original members of The World's Most Dangerous Band, the house band on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman. He holds the distinction of playing with Paul Shaffer, on both Late Night and the Late Show, longer than any other member of the CBS Orchestra. Jerry Z has been a fixture on the NYC Jazz scene since 1996, representing a sophisticated and modern approach to the Hammond B3. As a child growing up in Queens, Jerry took up the organ, and discovered a love for classical music, with Bach a particular influence. In his teenage years, he found himself exploring Blues, Rock, and Jazz, and playing his first professional gigs around New York City, before enrolling in the Purchase Conservatory of Music. While studying Classical Composition and Studio Engineering, Jerry was recruited by the head of Purchase's burgeoning jazz department, guitarist Doug Munro. He would continue playing with Munro after graduating, touring and cutting his first two albums with Doug's organ trio (Blueness, and Up Against It). In 2003, Jerry developed a radically funkier, more soulful approach to the organ trio through his collaboration with drummer Jim Payne and guitarist Bill Bickford. The Jim Payne Band (JPB) collaboration proved fruitful, producing two albums (Sensei and Energie), several national tours, and a number of notable appearances at jazz festivals. Bill Milkowski, in reviewing Sensei, wrote that Jerry "acquits himself with requisite grease and aggression on this slamming debut." Following his work with JPB, Jerry began working with soul jazz pioneer Melvin Sparks. Jerry recorded two critically acclaimed cd's with Sparks "This is it" and "Groove on Up" contributing his funky opus "onion patch" to the latter. In 2006 Z began working with drum legend Mike Clark and his Prescription Duo/Organ Trio. Clark has described Jerry as the "consummate organ player" with "one of the best grooves and bass lines I have ever played with": high praise indeed from one of the all-time greats. Jerry's work with Clark led to an invitation to join the Headhunters from 2007-2010, recording the live album "On Top", and accompanying the group on several national and international tours. In 2008, Jerry toured Australia with the Headhunters, which featured Jerry's own adaptations of Headhunters classics for organ trio. Also that year, he performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center with legendary guitarist, Hiram Bullock. Since 2007, Jerry has been a staple of guitarist Oz Noy's band that regularly performs at the Bitter end in NYC. Jerry appeared on Oz Noy's Twisted Blues Volume 1 in 2011 and in Twisted Blues Volume 2 in 2014. At present, Jerry Z is at work in the studio, producing his own debut album which is scheduled for release in the fall of 2015. In addition to those artists mentioned above, Jerry has worked with: Fred Wesley, Bernard Purdie, John Scofield, Donald Harrison, Keith Carlock, Mark Whitfield, George Porter Jr, Adam Nussbaum, Will Lee, Vinnie Colaiuta, and many others.

Hello Taiwan Featuring Sean Huang, Gina Can, Biung, & Treya - The Public Theater
May 27, 2017 - New York

Hello Taiwan is an annual event bringing leading artists from Taiwan to the US to reach American audiences. The four artists in this show have unique musical styles, and this performance marks the debut performance in New York for three out of the four artists. Sean Huang sings his own original songs, with a great vocal technique and fun uplifting style. Winner of a Golden Melody Award, which is the Taiwanese equivalent of a Grammy. He writes songs about daily life in Taipei. His biggest hit was about environmental conservation, reaching millions of his fans with this message. Gina Can is a member of the Hakka ethnic group and she sings in Hakka language. She's influenced by jazz and soul, and leads a 5-piece band with serious chops. Her songs are full of passion, a fantastic vehicle for her powerful voice and magnificent range. Her band members are all deeply rooted in contemporary Hakka culture, and at the same time, they love artists like Stevie Wonder. Biung won the 'Best Aboriginal Singer' Golden Melody Award. He lives in Taipei, but was raised in the mountains. He sings in his native language, Bunun, and is a member of the Bunun aborigine group. 'Biung' means 'pass the torch', and his mission is to do exactly that, by sharing the peace and beauty of his songs across cultures. A local New Yorker, Treya is a regular at Joe's Pub, and a Taiwanese-American rising star. Currently working on her highly-anticipated debut album with Golden Globe-nominated producer Kaki King, Treya will play a solo set of her original songs, accompanying herself on piano and guitar. Her delicious voice is like coffee and whiskey mixed with the feeling of birdsong at dawn, in part due to her roots.

Dease quickly established his reputation as a soloist and sideman, recording 4 albums as a leader and logging over 100 sessions as a sideman, all before the age of 30. His 4 critically praised releases as a leader include: The Takeover (2005), Clarity (2007), Dease Bones (2008) and Grace (2010). His latest album, Coming Home, to be released on D Clef Records, May 21st, features a stellar lineup of band mates: pianist Renee Rosnes, bassist Christian McBride, drumer Ulysses Owens Jr, and saxophonist Steve Wilson, plus a guest appearance by tenor sax man Eric Alexander. He is a Grammy award-winning trombonist, and has played with many of today's foremost jazz orchestras, including those led by Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, Charles Tolliver and Rufus Reid. He has revitalized the trombone's image on the frontline of quintets and sextets lead by masters musicians like Winard Harper, Renee Rosnes, Bill Charlap, Claudio Roditi, The Heath Brothers and Lewis Nash. Michael learned his craft from trombone legends Wycliffe Gordon and Joseph Alessi. His associations run the entire spectrum of musical genres and include Alicia Keys, Paul Simon, Paul Schaffer, CBS Orchestra, Elton John, Neal Diamond, Illinois Jacquet, Slide Hampton, The World Of Trombones, Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, WDR Big Band, George Gruntz, Billy Harper, and numerous others. Dease's unique blend of curiosity, hard work and optimism has helped him earn worldwide recognition, including awards from ASCAP, The International Trombone Association, Yamaha, Eastern Trombone Workshop, New York Youth Symphony, among others. Dease was recently profiled in Cicily Janus' book, The New Face of Jazz: An Intimate Look at Today's Living Legends (Random House). Michael's singular teaching talent has resulted in invitations to host master classes and residencies at University of North Texas, Scranton University, University of Iowa, Florida State College, Broward College, and many institutions abroad. He teaches jazz trombone full time at Michigan State University, well known for its jazz program, and has also been on faculty at Queens College CUNY, The New School and Northeastern University.

WILLIE ROSARIO (aka “Mr. Afinque”) was born Frenando Luis Rosario Marin in Coamo, Puerto Rico and studied guitar, saxophone, drums and music theory as a child. When Rosario’s family moved to Spanish Harlem in 1946, Willie began to play conga with various orchestras, including those led by Noro Morales, Johnny Segui, and Aldemaro Romero. With charts lent by Tito Puente and Tito Rodriguez, Rosario formed his first band in 1958 and recorded his first album El Bravo Soy Yo four years later with vocalist Frankie Figueroa. During the 1960’s Rosario recorded several albums and had his first big hit “La Cuesta De La Fama” in 1969 which marked the debut of his trademark four-trumpet with baritone sax frontline that he created with Bobby Valentin. Moving back to Puerto Rico in 1972, his orchestra has been called a “school” for many musicians during their formative years, including vocalists like Gilberto Santa Rosa and Tony Vega, and musicians like Humberto Ramirez and Jimmy Morales. Among his best-known compositions are “De Barrio Obrero a la Quince”, “El Timbal de Carlitos”, “Mi Amigo el Payaso,” “El Revendon,” “Lluvia” (Rain) and “Cuando No Hay Cariño” (When There’s No Love). In 1987, Rosario received a Grammy nomination for his song “Nueva Cosecha” (New Harvest), was honored with the 1991 Puerto Rican Diplo Award for Salsa Band of the Year, and was inducted into the International Latin Music Hall of Fame in 2002. His latest release Evidencia (2016) is a swinging salsa album produced by Bobby Valentin and features powerful trombones, piano, and a lot of percussion. TONY VEGA started his musical career at the tender age of ten, playing congas for a kids’ band called “La Preferida” in his native country of Puerto Rico. The following year (1968) his family moved to New York City, where he played congas and sang for various Latin rock bands through high school. His professional career began in 1978 when he joined Raphy Leavitt’s salsa band “La Selecta” and was the vocalist on the hit songs “Cosquillita”, “Shelia Taina” and “El Picaflor”. From 1980 to 1986, Vega sang with Willie Rosario’s band and recorded six albums, including the Grammy nominated album La Nueva Cosecha (The New Harvest). Moving back to Puerto Rico in 1986, he joined Eddie Palmieri’s band and sang on Palmieri’s 1988 Grammy Award winning album La Verdad (The Truth). Going solo in 1988, Tony’s first release Yo Me Quedo, which was co-produced by Humberto Ramirez, rose to the #5 spot on the 1989 Billboard Tropical/Salsa chart. In 1992, after the release of his next two hit albums Lo Mio Es Amor and Uno Mismo, Vega was awarded Puerto Rico’s Agüeybaná de Oro Award for Best Orchestra of the Year. Now internationally recognized for his classy vocal style and fresh, swinging salsa music, he has subsequently had six additional albums and nine singles make it into the Billboard top ten charts. Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.

I'm Nobody! Who are you? The Life and Poetry of Emily Dickinson - Morgan Library & Museum
Through May 28, 2017 - New York

One of the most popular and enigmatic American writers of the nineteenth century, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886) wrote almost 1,800 poems. Nevertheless, her work was essentially unknown to contemporary readers since only a handful of poems were published during her lifetime and a vast trove of her manuscripts was not discovered until after her death in 1886. Often typecast as a recluse who rarely left her Amherst home, Dickinson was, in fact, socially active as a young woman and maintained a broad network of friends and correspondents even as she grew older and retreated into seclusion. Bringing together nearly one hundred rarely seen items, including manuscripts and letters, I'm Nobody! Who are you?—a title taken from her popular poem—is the most ambitious exhibition on Dickinson to date. It explores a side of her life that is seldom acknowledged: one filled with rich friendships and long-lasting relationships with mentors and editors. The exhibition closely examines twenty-four poems in various draft states, with corresponding audio stops. In addition to her writings, the show also features an array of visual material, including hand-cut silhouettes, photographs and daguerreotypes, contemporary illustrations, and other items that speak to the rich intellectual and cultural environment in which Dickinson lived and worked. The exhibition is organized in conjunction with Amherst College.

The Poetics of Place: Contemporary Photographs from The Met Collection - The Met
Through May 28, 2017 - New York

This installation of contemporary photography from The Met collection surveys the diverse ways in which contemporary artists have photographed landscape and the built world over the last half century. The exhibition opens with works from the late 1960s and early 1970s by artists in America and Europe who brought the lessons of Minimal and Conceptual art to bear on views of nature both raw and acculturated. Also included are a series of unique Polaroid prints made by Walker Evans in Hale County—the setting for his famous 1930s photographs of Alabama sharecroppers—near the end of his life. Images from the 1980s and 1990s attest to a swing away from the "deskilling" associated with radical '60s art making and toward a new interest in technically assured large-scale prints that nevertheless incorporated earlier lessons from Land art, Conceptualism, and other postwar avant-garde movements. The exhibition concludes with recently made works—including Wolfgang Staehle's mesmerizing piece Eastpoint (September 15, 2004) (2004–6), which projects a 24-hour cycle of more than 8,000 still images, synchronized to real time, of the same Hudson River that inspired such American painters as Thomas Cole and Frederic Edwin Church.

Resistance and Rebellion in Rep - The Loft at the Davenport Theatre
Through May 28, 2017 - New York

Known for re-imagining works of the past to engage in modern issues, Random Access Theatre will be exploring two classic pieces with bold characters who fought against injustice in Resistance and Rebellion in Rep. Productions of Ernst Toller's Hoppla, We're Alive! and Sophocles' Antigone will alternate performances at The Loft at the Davenport Theatre May 4-28. Hoppla, We're Alive! directed by Artistic Director Jennifer Sandella, tells the story of a group of revolutionaries who, eight years after they are pardoned from death row, have found various ways to adapt to the unchanged world they once rebelled against. Politics, friendship, and conscience collide in this German play that shook up the theatre world when it originally premiered in the 1920s. Then, re-visit Antigone, the beloved story of Oedipus' courageous daughter who chooses to stand up for what she thinks is right, even in the face of dire consequences. This modern re-telling, adapted and directed by Victoria Teague, examines how a Greek tragedy fits into contemporary society, and whether you would actually be surprised to hear those kinds of stories on the nightly news today.

Gil Evans Project presents Miles Ahead 60th Anniversary directed by Ryan Truesdell - Jazz Standard
Through May 28, 2017 - New York

For decades after his death in 1988 at age 75, the only way to perform Gil Evans' music was through (often inaccu­rate) transcriptions. But the magic of Evans' writing lies in the details – his use of harmony, his unique approach to orchestration and instrumentation, and his singularly detailed rhythmic and nota­tional struc­ture. After years of painstaking research, and with the full support of the Evans family, Ryan Truesdell and the Gil Evans Project have made it possible to per­form Gil's music in its purest form, di­rectly from his manuscripts. In 2013, the ensemble's recording of "How About You" (from the ArtistShare album Centennial) won for Gil Evans the GRAMMY Award for Best Instrumental Arrange­ment. This much–anticipated return engagement includes two nights (5/27–5/28) celebrating the 60th an­niversary of Miles Davis and Gil Evans' 1957 album Miles Ahead. "Superb renderings of some of the fin­est writing of the postwar big band period. Players are uniformly excellent, but the star 'soloist' is the el­egant ensemble amalgams that Truesdell found hiding among brass and reeds that others had missed. He makes familiar material worth hearing again." (Downbeat) Featured Soloists: 5/27: Dave Pietro (7:30pm set only), Scott Wendholt (9:30pm set only) 5/28: Mike Rodriguez (7:30pm set only), Donny McCaslin (9:30pm set only) Ryan Truesdell – conductor Steve Wilson, Dave Pietro, Donny McCaslin (5/28 only), Tom Christensen, Alden Banta – reeds Adam Unsworth, David Peel – French horns Augie Haas, Scott Wendholt, Mike Rodriguez, Tony Kadleck, John Chudoba, Nadje Noordhuis – trumpets Ryan Keberle, Marshall Gilkes, Nick Finzer, George Flynn (bass trombone) – trombones Marcus Rojas – tuba Frank Kimbrough – piano Jay Anderson – bass Lewis Nash – drums

Works of technical and stylistic virtuosity, the medals combine poignant portraits of contemporary rulers, dignitaries, and literary figures on one side, and rich, symbolic imagery on the other. The commemorative medal epitomized seminal cultural values of the Renaissance period, namely, the emphasis on the primacy of the individual and the revival of classical antiquity. The exhibition, which explores the development and role of the portrait medal in Renaissance culture, as well as production techniques, celebrates the recently published catalogue of the Lehman Collection's holdings of European sculpture and metalwork.

Renaissance Maiolica: Painted Pottery for Shelf and Table - The Met
Through May 29, 2017 - New York

This exhibition of Renaissance maiolica, drawn exclusively from The Met's world-renowned collection, celebrates the publication of Maiolica, Italian Renaissance Ceramics in The Metropolitan Museum of Art by Timothy Wilson. As Wilson writes, "Painted pottery, at its most ambitious, is a serious form of Italian Renaissance art, with much to offer those interested in the wider culture of this astoundingly creative period." This creativity was applied to a vast range of practical objects. The exhibition includes tableware and serving vessels, desk ornaments, storage containers, devotional objects, as well as sculpture, all made in painted and tin-glazed earthenware. The maiolica tradition flourished from the 15th to the 17th century. Italian potters transformed techniques they owed to the Islamic world into something entirely unprecedented, and in turn laid the foundations for similar pottery traditions across Europe. Potters and pottery painters exploited innovations of the Renaissance goldsmith, sculptor, and painter in what was a relatively humble medium. That it was owned by the social elite of Italy, however, testifies to its artistic value. This exhibition explores how the different functions of Renaissance maiolica dictated the ways painted pottery was seen and decorated. Groups of objects are installed in displays suggestive of their use. An assembly of storage jars give a sense of a pharmacy's shelves. Among the tableware on display are istoriato plates and dishes—their surfaces covered with scenes from mythology and ancient history—from some of the most important services commissioned by leading Italian families. The exhibition also shows maiolica-makers using ceramic, paint, and glaze to compete with other art forms, including a Madonna and Child that imitates a framed panel painting and a Lamentation group that likely once functioned as a sculpted altarpiece, the largest known example of sculptural maiolica to survive.

Through May 29, 2017 - New York

“Forms of Resistance (Literally!)” Boxed in by the forms you fill out every day? Sick of being classified, categorized, tracked, stamped, approved, declined, billed, charged, and otherwise administered? Your social security number doesn’t quite define or express you, or you don’t have one? Not reducible to a sex or race, to a height or weight? Time for re-form! Bring your frustration, your underrepresentation, your creativity, your excess, your rebellious temptation – it’s time to subvert, pervert, and invert the bureaucratic limits and controls. Bring your messy selves, color outside of the lines, turn small spaces into the fertile ground of narrative, of open-ended exploration, of refusal and resistance. It’s time to engage in reform – to answer back – to speak truth to power – all over the walls. Writing On It All is a participatory writing project open to all interested members of the public. In sessions led by artists and writers, participants are invited to write on the interior surfaces of an out-of-use house – and no two sessions are alike. Facilitators and session members take to the walls to write, attending to the dynamics of writing as well as to pressing issues of the day. Poets, street artists, activists, choreographers, domestic workers, as well as professional writers and artists lead experiments dealing with diverse topics, using all kinds of materials, including music and projection, charcoal and chalk, pencil and paint.

Nous Ne Somme Pas Des Heros - Arts brookfield
Through May 31, 2017 - New York

Through the lens of sculpture, and both formal and material experimentation, Montreal-based artist Valérie Blass transforms the human body into choreographed, abstract compositions. Commissioned to create a site-specific installation in Allen Lambert Galleria at Brookfield Place, she deconstructs the photographic view to confront the limitations of figurative representation and the instability of form. For Nous ne somme pas des héros, which translates to "We are not heroes," Blass produced a series of still photographs solely for the purpose of creating three-dimensional objects. Working with live models, she orchestrated their movements to create living sculptures, then documented each configuration from five vantage points. Dressed in contrasting pattern and solid colour clothing — lending further pictorial complexity and textural definition to the scene — her subjects re-formed their pose between shots to create essentially the same, but slightly different shape each time. The resulting photographs were cut into sections, adhered to a series of blocks, and stacked into assemblages that reflect the precarious nature of each arrangement. In Bleached Jeans (2017), the figures entwine in a type of pyramid pose atop a pedestal-like object, while in One Piece Mohair (2017), two figures stand in a close embrace, propping up the third figure between them. Situated along the pedestrian thoroughfare of Brookfield Place Toronto, Blass' theatrical, organically formed sculptures echo the dramatic arch of the glass ceiling and its freestanding support structure, generating a visual dialogue surrounding expressions of balance and biomorphic form. Looking to traditions of art history and monumental statues, Blass challenges conventional approaches to grandeur, static perspectives, and singular subjects. By contrast, the subjects of her sculptures are anonymous, their individuality metamorphosing into an abstraction. As these bodies fold inward, their differences intertwine and merge into single entities. The stacked blocks disorient the gaze of passersby, inviting viewers to conceptually reconstruct the scenes. Collectively, these sculptures occupy and transform the surrounding environment, offering a sense of unabashed intimacy, balanced with a sense of humour. Blass' installation invites a physically engaged method of viewing, opening up a dialogue in public space about shared activity that embraces forms of social change. Curated by Bonnie Rubenstein. ABOUT SCOTIABANK CONTACT FESTIVAL Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival is an annual event in May with well over 1500 Canadian and international artists and photographers exhibiting at more than 175 venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1997 and now a charitable organization, the Festival is devoted to celebrating, and fostering the art and profession of photography, through a diverse range of programs. As a leading proponent of photography, the Festival increases exposure and recognition for local, Canadian and international artists and is committed to advancing knowledge, creativity and innovation in photography. It stimulates excitement and discussion among a diverse audience that has grown to over 1.8 million. CONTACT is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural event in Canada. ABOUT VALERIE BLASS Through the lens of sculpture, Valérie Blass explores the tensions between form, figure, materials and art historical tropes. She often uses everyday objects and industrial materials, such as fractured figures and shattered artifacts, as a starting point to organically explore voids and absences in both natural history and art history. Blass reimagines and reinvents the present by borrowing from different sources, such as hunting supply catalogues or discount stores. In turn, the artist creates new worlds by observing and reintroducing the details of time and space. She anthropologically uses negative space in material culture to (re)present history as we know it. Blass has a vision of a curious present: a place where seemingly stoic objects become alert sentinels, spent warriors, princesses and other mystical figures. She remains loyal to a sculptural tradition in her new versions of icons and figures. Using a variety of color, pattern, texture and scale, Blass fuses these elements together in the suggestion of an alternate reality—one that opposes sameness. Her work relies on the responses and reactions of an engaged audience. The immediate present and future are now anticipated with an unexpected 'tour de force'.

Excerpt - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through June 02, 2017 - Midtown

For generations, artists have used text and books to challenge the purveyors of knowledge and to trouble the certainty of facts. Books are often thought about, researched and developed at the expense of marginalized groups, especially black people. Working with text and books, many artists seek to subvert historical paradigms of narrative control and dissemination of knowledge. These artists’ methods include physically breaking down the medium, pushing the scope of text and blurring the lines of the written word and the visual landscape. Excerpt explores how artists use books and language as a form of resistance, putting pressure on the way knowledge is written and shared. Through reworking our reading, these artists provide new understanding for themselves and viewers. Excerpt features approximately fifteen artists. Alumni of the Studio Museum’s Artist-in-Residence program, including Sadie Barnette, Bethany Collins, Meleko Mokgosi and Xaviera Simmons, figure prominently in the exhibition, along with Glenn Ligon, Gary Simmons, Kara Walker and more. Excerpt is organized by Adeze Wilford, The Studio Museum in Harlem/MoMA Curatorial Fellow.

In response to this, Tictail and Absolut Art have partnered together to launch Women x Women, a discovery based art-tour in New York City’s Lower East Side that highlights emerging female artists and puts female representation back into the hands of women.

Postcommodity: Coyotaje - Art in General
Through June 03, 2017 - New York

Art in General presents a newly commissioned installation by Postcommodity, marking the collective's first solo exhibition in New York. Composed of artists Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist, Postcommodity's multidisciplinary practice reveals and examines Indigenous cultural narratives and their relationships to broader social, political, and economic dialogues and actions. For the exhibition Coyotaje, Postcommodity continues its several years-long investigation of the military and economic life of the US-Mexico borderlands, highlighting the complex dynamics between US Border Patrol, the communities living in the San Pedro River Valley region, and individuals moving across the border. The exhibition is made possible through Art in General's New Commissions Program, and is included in a season-long exploration of the politics related to geographic boundaries and the histories, possession, and accessibility of land. As part of the project, Postcommodity engaged the US Border Patrol in a dialogue on the role of decoys in its offensive and defensive operations. Decoys are sometimes used by Border Patrol agents to apprehend individuals trying to cross the border, to push passage in specific directions, and to discourage migration into the United States. Given that many individuals encounter decoys in darkness, they have become shrouded in mythology, taking on auras and personas drawn from local folklore and oral traditions. Coyotaje will feature large-scale sculpture inspired by these conversations and Postcommodity's intimate knowledge of the Douglas/Agua Prieta landscape, as well as a multi-channel sound work that references sonic decoys used by border agents. Conceived as potentially functional decoys, the works highlight the peculiar nature of these forms, as they represent both the tactical needs of agents and the cultural manifestations of those who encounter them. Moving the conversation on border security beyond simplistic, mass-oriented appeals, Coyotaje instead examines the real-life experiences of those living and moving near and around the border. Postcommodity's work breaks down some of the arbitrary and falsely-created barriers among peoples of this region, and looks to establish new constructs that speak more readily to the social, geographic, and cultural histories of these borderlands. Postcommodity was formed in 2007. The collective is comprised of Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist, and has previously included other artists living in the Southwestern United States. Postcommodity has presented work across the United States and around the world, including Australia, Belgium, and Canada. In 2015, Postcommodity installed the much-acclaimed public work Repellent Fence at the US-Mexico border near Douglas, AZ and Agua Prieta, SON, marking the creation of one of the largest public art installations by two nations. Postcommodity is also featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial and documenta 14.

LOU - The Paradise Factory
Through June 03, 2017 - New York

Theatre 4the People will present the World Premiere of Haley Rice’s LOU, directed by Kate Moore Heaney, May 19-June 3 at The Paradise Factory (64 East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery, Second Theater) with performances Tuesday through Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets ($25) may be purchased in advance at http://lousalome.brownpapertickets.com or by calling 1-800-838-3006. A limited number of pay-what-you-can tickets will be reserved for every performance, in an attempt to keep theatre accessible to all. The performance will run approximately two hours, with one 15-minute intermission. LOU is the story of Lou Salome, one of the first female psychoanalysts and an accomplished writer, poet, novelist and early scholar of the psychology of female sexuality. Lou had deeply intimate relationships with Freud, Nietzsche, and Rilke, along with other great thinkers of the day. Her brilliance matched (if not surpassed) that of these great men, though her work is hardly known. Through Salome’s search for identity and fight to claim her place in a world dominated by men, the question arises: how far have we truly come? An all female cast comes together to reclaim her story, portraying these men through the mind and memory of the great Lou Salome. The cast will feature Mieko Gavia (Summoned with Black Revolutionary Theater Workshop), Natasha Hakata (This Just In! with Crashbox Theatre Company), Erika Phoebus (Kiss It, Make It Better at The New Ohio), Jenny Leona* (The Beekeeper’s Daughter at Theater for the New City), Olivia Jampol (member of The Bats at The Flea), and Valeria Avina (The Colors of Frida at Teatro SEA) with Costume Design by Katja Andreiev (Beardo with Pipeline Theatre Company), Sound Design by Almeda Beynon (Mytho? Lure of Wildness at Abrons Arts Center) Lighting Design by Becky Heisler (We Are Animals at The Brick), and Set Design by Marisa Kaugars (Scorched with The Araca Projects). *Appearing courtesy of the Actors’ Equity Association.

Exhibition: Wilderness Camp - Brooklyn Children's Museum
Through June 04, 2017 - Crown Heights

Brooklyn Children’s Museum announces a new exhibit, Wilderness Camp, an indoor experience that brings the great outdoors to family audiences through role-play and the exploration of nature. This interactive installation created in partnership with contemporary artist Tattfoo Tan, gives families the opportunity to explore how we interact with and rely on nature for our basic needs and resources. Kids and their caregivers will learn about different ways of creating shelters, plants that provide food and building materials, and techniques that transform natural materials into functional, everyday objects. Wilderness Camp offers visitors the opportunity to take on the roles of outdoor explorers and gain a heightened appreciation of our precious natural resources that we can all work toward preserving. Exhibit components include immersive tent structures containing activities like macramé and shadow puppets, a campfire ring for storytelling and programs, graphic posters of step-by-step survival techniques including food preservation, campfire building, and tool making, and an interactive display of cultural objects from BCM’s collection alongside Tan’s artworks that utilize similar materials and techniques. Opportunities for role-play abound, as children and their caregivers put on a backpack filled with some of the necessities of wilderness exploration- a compass, canteen, mess kit, magnifying glass, net, blanket, tools, and a map of local trails and green spaces to explore.

South Street Seaport Museum announces new Exhibition The Original Gus Wagner: The Maritime Roots of Modern Tattoo - South Street Seaport Museum
Through June 04, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum announces new Exhibition The Original Gus Wagner: The Maritime Roots of Modern Tattoo January 29 – June 4, 2017 from 11am – 5pm, Wednesday – Sunday Opening Reception: January 28, 2017 from 6-8pm, RSVP Only In celebration of the unparalleled restoration currently underway in the South Street Seaport Museum’s flagship, the museum announces its second post-Hurricane Sandy exhibition, The Original Gus Wagner: The Maritime Roots of Modern Tattoo beginning on January 29, 2017, open Wednesday – Sunday 11am-5pm, at the Museum’s mezzanine gallery level, accessible from the main entrance of the Museum on 12 Fulton Street. An Opening Reception with Live Tattoo Demonstration and a Silent Auction will be held Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 6-8pm, RSVP required. Visit southstreetseaportmuseum.org for reservation info. The exhibition is included with Museum admission: South Street Seaport Museum members: FREE, $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $6 for children ages 2 – 17. Tickets can be purchased online at http://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/ or in person at 12 Fulton St. The Original Gus Wagner: The Maritime Roots of Modern Tattoo explores Augustus “Gus” Wagner’s (American, 1872-1941) early life as a merchant mariner and tattoo artist who traveled the world, from 1898-1902, and his return to the United States as a professional tattooist and tattooed man. Gus Wagner was born in 1872 in Marietta, Ohio, a trading and boat building town on the Ohio River. At age twelve he saw his first heavily tattooed man, "Captain Costentenus the Greek Albanian," in a traveling show. As a young man he hit the road as an itinerant salesman and laborer. In 1897 he boarded the cargo steamer Bellona at Newport News, Virginia, thus embarking on a four-year career as a merchant seaman. By traveling around the world, Gus Wagner got to know many seaports: Vera Cruz, London, Cape Town, Sydney, Auckland, Honolulu, New York, San Francisco, and others. It was during this time that he discovered the art of tattooing. He claimed that he learned to tattoo from tribesmen in Java and Borneo who showed him how to use traditional hand-made tools. By 1901, Gus reportedly had 264 tattoos of his own, (and over 800 by 1908) allowing him to promote himself as "the most artistically marked up man in America.” After briefly moving home to Ohio, Gus embarked on a forty-year career as a traveling tattooist, tattooed man, and circus performer. He largely eschewed the new electric tattooing machines that transformed the art form after 1890, and remained faithful to his hand-held instruments. With other wandering artists, he carried tattooing inland from coastal ports, making it part of the culture of small-town America in the 20th century. The exhibition will show original and reproduced artifacts from the Seaport Museum’s Alan Govenar and Kaleta Doolin Tattoo Collection such as tattooing tools, a selection of tattoo flashes (drawings and sketches, on recycled paper based materials, displaying variations of tattoo designs) and a selection of pages from the artist’s scrapbook – a 400 page book composed of press clippings, postcards, business cards, sketches, and photographs, that relate to his introduction to tattooing as a sailor. Due to the fragile condition of the collection, most of the artifacts will be shown via reproductions. A video will show the turning of the pages of Gus Wagner’s various canvas books, like Gus’s clients were doing nearly a century ago. The exhibition will familiarize viewers with hand tattoo techniques, and make the case for the importance of researching, documenting, and preserving tattoo collections in museums and research institutes. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, January 28th, 6-8 pm. Two live tattooing demonstrations, with Gus Wagner original designs, will be part of the event, thanks to Daredevil Tattoo Museum’s co-owners Michelle Myles and Brad Fink. A silent auction will also happen during the evening. Auction items include two gift certificates for two Gus Wagner tattoos that Daredevil’s co-owners would make at a later date; one walking tour of New York City’s tattoo history sites by Michelle Myles; and a few rare signed copies of publications and films on tattooing. All funds raised during the evening will be dedicated toward the conservation of the South Street Seaport Museum’s tattoo collection. Lectures and all-ages public programs will take place throughout the length of the exhibition in collaboration with Daredevil Tattoo Museum, New-York Historical Society, and Tattly. The exhibition is curated by Alan Govenar, with Martina Caruso, Collections Manager and Registrar, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections Assistant at the Seaport Museum. The design and art direction is curated by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum’s historic print shop. This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional funds are provided by Communities Foundation of Texas, Daredevil Tattoo Museum, Tattoo Archive, and the Paul Rogers Tattoo Research Center. Alan Govenar (Exhibition Curator) is a writer, folklorist, photographer, and filmmaker. He is president of Documentary Arts. Govenar has a B.A. with distinction in American Folklore from Ohio State University, an M.A. in Folklore and Anthropology from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Ph.D. in Arts and Humanities from the University of Texas at Dallas. He is the author of twenty-nine books, including Texas Blues: The Rise of a Contemporary Sound, Stompin’ at the Savoy: The Story of Norma Miller, Extraordinary Ordinary People: Five American Masters of Traditional Arts, Untold Glory: African Americans in Pursuit of Freedom, Opportunity and Achievement, Jasper, Texas: The Community Photographs of Alonzo Jordan, Deep Ellum: The Other Side of Dallas, Portraits of Community, and The Early Years of Rhythm and Blues. Stoney Knows How: Life as a Sideshow Tattoo Artist, Govenar has written numerous articles on tattooing and has co-authored with Ed Hardy three books on tattooing Flash from the Past: Classic American Tattoo Designs 1890-1965, Art for Life, and Beyond Skin. Govenar’s film, Stoney Knows How, based on his book by the same title about Old School tattoo artist Leonard St. Clair, was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and was selected as an Outstanding Film of the Year by the London Film Festival. Govenar has also produced and directed numerous films in association with NOVA, La Sept/ARTE, and the corporation for public broadcasting for broadcast and educational distribution. The off-Broadway premiere of Govenar’s musical Texas in Paris received rave reviews in The New York Times and Huffington Post.

SACRED SPACES HIMALAYAN WIND AND THE TIBETAN BUDDHIST SHRINE ROOM - Rubin Museum of Art
Through June 05, 2017 - Chelsea

Sacred Spaces invites visitors to reflect on devotional activities in awe-inspiring places. For the second iteration of the exhibition, the Museum commissioned an installation by Soundwalk Collective in collaboration with sound artist Francisco López called Khandroma: Himalayan Wind, which transports visitors to the high Himalayas through sound. In the spring and summer of 2016 Soundwalk Collective and Francisco López traveled to Upper Mustang, Nepal, to record the sounds in and surrounding the world's highest monasteries—the flapping of prayer flags, the chanting of blessings, the echoes of wind from the valley below, and the interplay of sound and silence. These sound environments will be presented as a multi-channel audio installation through state-of-the-art speakers, creating an immersive and meditative experience. Visitors can also interact directly with Khandroma by playing individual tracks from the soundscapes at dedicated listening stations. A video installation filmed by Soundwalk Collective's founder Stephan Crasneanscki complements the audio experience by showing cyclic, kaleidoscopic imagery of prayer wheels and prayer flags evoking the notion of repetition and permanent change. Visitors can also enter the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room, an immersive installation inspired by a traditional shrine that would be used for offering, devotion, prayer, and contemplation. Art and ritual objects are presented as they would be in an elaborate household shrine.

Portal to Dreams, Elemental Realms, and Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography - Agora Gallery
Through June 08, 2017 - Chelsea

Agora Gallery ventures deep into the imagination this May with three group exhibitions of extraordinary range. Portal to Dreams collects six daring artists, several of whom are painters playing with the limits of colors and shape in abstraction. There is also a digital artist who creates uniquely slow-paced animations and another who riddles traditional narrative scenes with intriguing gaps. Elemental Realms brings together a select group of artists with the objective of interrogating texture, both within and on top of the painted surface. A few different participants put the medium of paint through its paces: dabbing it, tossing it, cracking it, and layering it. One artist combines acrylic with gold leaf to create a new kind of physical texture that enters the viewer's space in a subtle way. In both of these shows, traditions are overturned and expectations are defied. Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography is an examination of the storytelling qualities of photography. Whether they're using surreal compositions, extreme close-up, unnaturally saturated colors, or pointed symbolism, these artists take digital photography to new heights. All three exhibitions open May 19, 2017 and run through June 8, 2017 with a joint opening reception on May 25 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: May 19, 2017 – June 8, 2017 Reception: Thursday, May 25, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_5_19_2017.aspx Featured Artists: The Portal to Dreams Ricardo Vivanco | Stan Adard | Carlos Puig | Julio Lopez Vietri | Alagir | Mali Lasker Elemental Realms Donna Broder | Bulsby "Buzz" Duncan | Wojciech Tut Chechli?ski | Iftah Geva | Marlene Kurland | Isabella S.

Han Youngsoo: Photographs Of Seoul 1956–63 - International Center of Photography
Through June 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition is the first major U.S. showing of the work of Korean photographer Han Youngsoo, who captured the dramatic transformation of Seoul in the years after the end of the Korean War. After taking part in bitter frontline fighting as a young South Korean soldier during the Korean War (1950–53), Han Youngsoo returned to Seoul at the conflict's end and found a devastated, impoverished city. Choosing photography as a profession, he witnessed a period of profound transformation in Seoul that saw the rapid creation of a modern city and urban society. His photographs, rarely seen outside of Korea until now, offer a fascinating window onto the changing everyday lives of the city's inhabitants during a historic moment. Han Youngsoo: Photographs of Seoul 1956–63 has been organized by ICP Adjunct Curator Christopher Phillips and Waterfall Mansion & Gallery, New York City, with the collaboration of the Han Youngsoo Foundation, Seoul.

Alfonso Ossorio: Works From the Foundation - Sotheby's New York
Through June 09, 2017 - New York

Sotheby’s S|2 gallery is pleased to present Alfonso Ossorio: Works from the Foundation, one of the first of two shows that are part of the gallery’s re-focused program to celebrate historically important artists who are underappreciated by the market. On view until June 9, 2017, the gallery will showcase fourteen works by post-war American artist Alfonso Ossorio. One of the seminal figures of American post-war art and early patron of Pollock, Ossorio established his East Hampton studio as a central hub for the New York art scene, housing Jean Dubuffet’s Art Brut collection as well as serving as a seasonal studio for Clyfford Still and other artists. Surveying over thirty years of works on paper, paintings and sculptures, the works in this exhibition range from abstract canvases and wax resist watercolors of the 1950s to mixed media assemblages from the 1970s, synthesizing elements of Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Art Brut.

Roy Newell: Works From the Archives - Sotheby's New York

Sotheby’s S|2 gallery is pleased to present Roy Newell: Works from the Archives, one of the first of two shows that are part of the gallery’s re-focused program to celebrate historically important artists who are underappreciated by the market. On view until June 9, 2017, the gallery will showcase eighteen paintings by Abstract artist Roy Newell, spanning over half a century of his career. An original member of the Abstract Expressionist movement, Newell was featured alongside Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston and Jackson Pollock, but he shied away from the spotlight, preferring to work in the privacy of his New York studio. He reworked compositions over days, weeks, years and decades, resulting in his signature style: brightly-colored geometric abstractions, vacillating between muscular and elegant. A new audience will now have the chance to discover the works of this critically acclaimed pioneer of Abstract artist who went through life relatively undiscovered.

Brooklyn Circle - Smalls Live
Through June 10, 2017 - New York City

Stacy's concept is original and inspiring. He is completely unpredictable and doesn't bore you with stock licks. In fact he doesn't bog himself down with just playing chord changes, and he plays ideas. He's a true improviser. Eric Reed, pianist & composer Stacy Dillard, raised in Muskegon Heights, Michigan, started playing the saxophone at a rather late age. In his hometown, there isn't much music happening, but only Robert Moore, Stacy's band instructor, and a host of close friends. Athletics was a big part of his life, leading to the late start on the instrument. Stacy attended college at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio to study with Dr. William Denza, Jim Smith, Chris Berg, and Lenard Moses. Very quickly, Dillard acquired the necessary knowledge that would soon put his name out on the local scene. It was a run-in with Wynton Marsalis in Dayton, Ohio that would turn his attention to the New York Scene. After graduation, Stacy took the act to Cincinnati, where he stayed for a short time and made his first recording appearance with Mike Wade on trumpet, drummer Melvin Broach and pianist William Menefield. Maturation was very rapid, finally leading the way to New York. Stacy is a one-of-a-kind musician. Seriously." Roy Hargrove A young saxophonist of serious promise(Ben Ratliff, The New York Times), Stacy has caught the attention of many with his large and rich tone, developed ideas, accurate technique, work ethic, and patience, leading to a number of working opportunities. Dillard has played with Winard Harper, Cindy Blackmon, Lenny White, Norman Simmons, Frank Lacy, Wycliffe Gordon, Eric Reed, Roy Hargrove, Stephon Harris, Ernestine Anderson, Terrell Stafford, Herlin Riley, John Hicks, Frank Wess, Mulgrew Miller, Clark Terry, Victor Lewis, Steve Wilson, Johnny O'neal, Antonio Hart, Russell Malone, Lewis Nash, Mark Whitfield, the Mingus Big Band, and a host of others in different genres of music, including Shirley Ceasar, Alex Bugnon, Stephanie Mills, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, and more. "Hey man, this (censored) can play. This MF can PLAY! Wynton Marsalis As well as being a sideman, Stacy Dillard is currently leading three bands of his own. cPhyve is the genesis project, along with cPhour, which is stylistically similar to cPhyve. The Other Side is exactly what the name says. The cast of members are the same as cPhyve, but r&b/funk/hip-hop oriented. To sum it all up, Stacy Dillard is a perfect example of the fusing of tradition and innovation, the combination which keeps EVERYTHING fresh, exciting, energetic, theraputic, and more importantly, real. Driven by a relentless curiosity, Ismail Lawal's playing happily avoids easy categorization. Lawal fell in love with jazz as a teen and immersed himself in the works of the music's most exemplary practitioners. More important than the raw information he gained from his study however, was the intellectual and cultural inquisitiveness which he saw as feeding the vitality of the music. Adopting this inclusive stance, Lawal has gone on to perform in a variety of musical settings, from various African-based traditions to singer-songwriter gigs, and myriad worlds in between. Diallo House is a bass player on the New York jazz scene.

Massimo Vitali: Disturbed Coastal Systems - Benrubi Gallery
Through June 17, 2017 - New York

Benrubi Gallery is pleased to announce Disturbed Coastal Systems, the latest exhibition by internationally acclaimed photographer Massimo Vitali. The subject of Vitali’s latest exhibition is the intersection of land and sea, the end of the terrestrial human habitat and the beginning of the aqueous. As is usual for Vitali, the pictures are heavily populated and feature an elevated, distant perspective that captures thousands of square meters in the frame, simultaneously magnifying the grandness of the landscape and multiplying the human presence. These are landscapes, but they’re also crowd scenes. Individuality is less important than the tribe, and the very idea of the frame is threatened by the enormity of the scenes they attempt to contain.

KAJAHL : OBSCURE ORIGINS - Tillou Fine Art
Through June 18, 2017 - Brooklyn

TILLOU FINE ART will present Obscure Origins, the first comprehensive solo presentation in New York City of paintings and studies by Brooklyn-based artist KAJAHL. This exhibition presents a focused survey of KAJAHL’s portraits, which combine iconography from African, Asian, European, and Pre-Columbian traditions. The fusion of these symbols results in the creation of enigmatic artworks that foreground the forgotten past and reanimate minor artifacts of history into transformative assemblages. KAJAHL draws inspiration for his paintings from visiting historic sites, mining archives, books, museums and the internet, and then uses these resources to create new iconographic mythologies and narratives. This results in the manifestation of hybridized entities that he produces and transforms into grandiose figures. Obscure Origins spotlights this diverse cast of characters ranging from majestic deities, royal leaders, scientists, cryptid like amphibians to seafaring explorers. KAJAHL places these subjects in various habitats tightly occupied inside their own unique universe that radiate a mesmerizing and tantalizing effect. He adroitly melds materials and objects in his paintings, blending together disparate elements to create a new fiction as the figures he depicts defy and obscure classification. For example, in Aquatic Submerged III, he paints an oxidized iron torso that seamlessly fuses into a jadeite greenstone bust. In Scientific Method I, we see a figure seated in front of what appears to be altered hieroglyphs, meddling with strange cadavers and undefined creatures. Here, KAJAHL incorporates still life and portraiture to explore the outer limits of appropriation and identity. Alongside these paintings, a series of small studies will also be included in the exhibition. Amulets, funerary effigies and fragmentary busts are rendered with a striking use of expressive brushwork, reflecting both his command of the medium and versatile ability to construct alternate realities through a variety of painting techniques.

Ardea Arts Presents Pop-Up Preview Performances of BOUNCE The Basketball Opera - West 4th Street Cage
Through June 21, 2017 - New York

Ardea Arts Presents Pop-Up Preview Performances of BOUNCE The Basketball Opera May 17 - June 21, 2017 Ardea Arts announces Pop-up Preview Performances of BOUNCE The Basketball Opera, their latest project in development. These will take place throughout New York City on Wednesdays at 5:30pm. Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 5:30pm - West 4th Street Cage Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 5:30pm - Grand Army Plaza Entrance, Brooklyn Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 5:30pm - Abraham Lincoln Playground, 134th Street, Harlem Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 5:30pm - Brooklyn - Surprise Location!   BOUNCE PopUps are free, non-ticketed events, of mini preview performances in public spaces, open to the public. For more information, visit www.ardeaarts.com/bounce/. They are conceived as little previews of the opera, slated for premiere November 17-19, 2017 in Lexington KY.    BOUNCE The Basketball Opera is grounded in pressing issues facing today's audiences. Based on the Greek myth The Flight of Icarus, BOUNCE tells the story of Ike "The Flight" Harris, a high school basketball star bound for stardom. Audiences will see if "Flight" can rebound from the emotional and physical pain of gun violence, as the story plays out on local basketball courts across the city and the country.    Pairing diverse casting with a fresh approach to arts engagement, local youth working alongside seasoned professionals are integrated into the production using the powerful medium of basketball. They become the basketball players, the cheerleaders and Flight's classmates and teammates. Local and national community leaders also play a number of the guest adult roles.    Basketball is a simple game - get the ball in the basket. But this 'simple' game becomes complex when outside forces like money and fame challenge team ethics. Isaac "Flight" Harris, a gifted and ambitious young player is on a fast track to stardom until his wings are clipped by the actions of a jealous teammate. We experience Flight's descent, then the powerful epiphany that changes his world forever. Synthesizing the grandeur of operatic singing with the grittiness of street rhythms, electronic dance music and urban hip-hop vocal stylings, BOUNCE asks: how does one rise up after being knocked down? The answer is in the game of basketball itself.   The creative team includes: Glen Roven (Lead Composer/Music Supervisor), Charles R. Smith, Jr. (Story and Libretto), Grethe Barrett Holby(Concept/Creative & Stage Director), with additional music by Tomás Doncker(Global Soul Composer) and Ansel Elgort aka Ansolo (EDM Producer). The Production staff includes Dr. Everett McCorvey (Conductor), Chidi Ozieh(Media & Sound).    The BOUNCE Pop Up casts feature Seth Ibarrondo aka Madison Priceas Poet, Phillip Gay as Flight, Charlotte Dos Santos as Sabrina, Ashley Jackson as Daphne, Troy Press as Announcer/MC, Patrice Turner as Mrs. Lucas, and Rod Raines aka Rodreezee with Basketball Percussion.   Ardea Arts has been developing BOUNCE in partnership with The University of Kentucky Opera Theatre. BOUNCE partners and advocates include prominent local council members, community leaders, and basketball industry advocates, many whom will participate in the production, including basketball legend and announcer Len Elmore.

From March 9 through June 24, 2017, the Onassis Cultural Center New York presents A World of Emotions: Ancient Greece, 700 BC – 200 AD, a groundbreaking exploration of emotional life in ancient times and its contemporary reverberations. Prompting questions about how we express, control, manipulate, or simulate feelings in our own society, the exhibition brings together more than 130 masterpieces from internationally renowned museums—including the Acropolis Museum; National Archaeological Museum, Athens; Louvre; British Museum; and Vatican Museums—many of which will be on view in the United States for the first time, and some of which will be seen for the first time outside Greece.

Fritz Henle Photographs - Throckmorton Fine Art
Through June 24, 2017 - New York

THROCKMORTON FINE ART (www.throckmorton-nyc.com) will present an important exhibition of photographs by the German-born 20th century photographer, FRITZ HENLE, at its New York gallery from April 27 – June 24, 2017. According to Spencer Throckmorton, "photo-historian Helmut Gernsheim called FRITZ HENLE 'the last classic freelance photographer.' He was one of those fortunate individuals for whom the tumultuous years before and after World War II generated an ability for him to constantly reimagine and retool his life and work. His German Father, a surgeon, had a talent as an amateur photographer and encouraged young Fritz, who graduated from the Bavarian State Institute for Photography in 1930. Then his work for American art historian Clarence Kennedy funded a series of explorations that took him to Italy, the Mediterranean, Greece, North Africa and the Middle East for three years. He photographed people in urban and rural settings, at work, at study, and at play. "An opportunity to photograph the Orient and India in 1935 and 1936 placed him in a locale few European photographers had access to. Henle shot the magnificent architecture and landscapes as well as the conditions he saw on the streets of Indian cities, in Peking and at the Port of Shanghai. His first exhibition, in fact, was at the Mitsubishi store in Tokyo and he published his first monograph, "This is Japan," in 1937. When political turmoil made Western travel to these lands even less likely, Henle's images of Asian society gained notoriety in both German and American periodicals." Visitors to the Throckmorton exhibition will see vintage and modern prints that feature a broad range of Henle's subjects, including images of New York City, Mexico, China and Paris; fashion; nudes; industry; and portraits of famous personalities. Henle liked exploring different genres of photography, and was well known for his travel and fashion photographs as well as portraits and documentary images. With Germany's situation worsening by 1936, Henle embarked for America, first spending several months in Mexico to obtain a visa. He wound up socializing with some of the key personalities working there including Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, Jose Clemente Orozco and Carlos Chavez. But he also captured images of the simple workers and campesinos as he moved around the country. Once Henle got to New York he became one of the earliest contributors to LIFE magazine, in 1937, which published more than 50 picture stories and five covers by Henle. New York was where he could make the most of his photojournalist vision as well as develop his skills producing commercial images for the great fashion publications of the time, such as HOLIDAY, TOWN & COUNTRY, ELLE, MADEMOISELLE and HARPER'S BAZAAR. His fashion photographs won tremendous praise for innovation by taking models out of the studio and photographing them in more natural settings outdoors. Known as "Mr Rollei" for his lifelong devotion to the twin-lens Rolleiflex camera he used throughout his career, Henle found the large 2.25 square format film provided one of the brightest and clearest screens for composition, detail, flexibility and creative expression. In 1938 Henle won a two week assignment from LIFE to shoot every aspect of pre-war Paris society from the horse races to the street life. It was a unique opportunity to record a citizenry on the brink. With a journalist's vision he captured everyday scenes showing women chatting, a housewife carrying her baguette, people at a café, and a well-known shot of a woman on a chair mimicking the pose of a Roman God statue above her. It resulted in a disappointment when LIFE chose not to publish his pictures. Then, in 1944, just before DeGaulle triumphantly entered Paris the French photo editor of The New York Times heard of Henle's pre-war Paris cache and published a four page spread in The New York Times Sunday magazine, a turn-around-success underscored when Henle published his fourth monograph, "Paris," in 1948. Henle became a U.S. citizen in 1942. He spent the war years working for the Office of War Information shooting industrial and military sites. In 1945, Henle co-founded the American Society of Magazine Photographers. In the 1950s Henle's work for The Cities Service Oil Company led him to assignments in North and South America, as well as the Hawaiian Islands and the Caribbean and resulted in two more monographs on Hawaii, in 1948 and The Virgin Islands, in 1949. Henle moved with his family to the Virgin Islands in 1958 and made it his home for the rest of his life. Demand for his widely acclaimed commercial photography for travel industry clients unfortunately clouded his reputation as a fine art photographer for many years. It was not until 1980 that American collectors were re-introduced to Henle's fine art images when New York's Witkin gallery mounted a 50-Year Retrospective Exhibition. After that Henle was tireless about building a lasting legacy and the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center maintains a permanent archive of his work with almost 200,000 well-conserved negatives and nearly 2000 vintage prints. Fritz Henle photographs are now in the permanent collections of major institutions among them New York's Museum of Modern Art and the International Center of Photography, The Museum Ludwig, The Kunsthaus, and The Center for Creative Photography. An exhibition called "Fritz Henle: In Search of Beauty", marking the centenary of his birth, was held at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at The University of Texas at Austin in 2009. Roy Flukinger, curator of the Henle exhibition and senior research curator of photography at the Ransom Center, said, "Henle remained the champion of what he defined as 'beauty' in photography and, regardless of the subject matter he encountered, always strove to find an aesthetically pleasing approach to what came before his camera." Recognized for the clean and sharp elegance of the photographs, Henle's art was unrestricted by convention or popular trends. "Fritz Henle: In Search of Beauty" illustrates why Henle's photography continues to be recognized for its artistry, eloquence and insightfulness. "You will spend the rest of your life learning to see light. It will not take you long to learn all about the camera, but you will never come to the end of discovering about the effects of light itself. The only rule is to watch the world about you, even when you have not got a camera in your hand." – Fritz Henle Throckmorton Fine Art has been a leader among New York dealers in showing the most important contemporary Latin American photographers at its New York gallery at 145 East 57th Street. Gallery founder Spencer Throckmorton has also pursued a long held interest in Pre-Columbian art and Chinese jades and the gallery has continually staged important exhibitions and published numerous publications on those subjects. The gallery's commitment to connoisseurship is underscored by its sales to such major museums as The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Getty and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, along with the Reina Sofia in Madrid. Portions of collections the gallery was instrumental in forming have been donated to the Louvre. The gallery loans examples on a regular basis to such significant institutions as the National Gallery in London. As the premier dealer offering vintage and contemporary Latin American photography, Pre-Columbian art, Chinese jades and Tribal art, Throckmorton Fine Art participates in internationally acclaimed fairs, including The Winter Antiques Show in New York each January, AIPAD and during March offers Chinese Jades during ASIA WEEK.

Voice Cult: Sing. Connect. Express. Heal. Singing together can be closer than touching. ::::: About Voice Cult ::::: Every human voice is a REAL voice. You were born singing. You have been singing since the beginning of time. Through our voices we connect, align, vibrate, express, process, remember, forget, wish, apologize, forgive, go into altered states, heal ourselves and each other, flee, find, talk to dead grandfathers, lure each other into love, become our own mothers, and paint the room with iridescence If you can speak, then you can sing - even if you have only ever croaked out thin ratchety wisps of songs and especially if your mom told you that you were tone-deaf in the fourth grade. If you are a great singer, come because you love singing, the more the merrier. We sound like ourselves here. What will we sound like together? Let's feel things. Singing together can be closer than touching. At Voice Church we learn, over time, the body awareness and sensations which signal healthy singing. We engage in the long-standing, frequently challenging, and utterly worthwhile process of restoring the alignment of our vocal instruments. We learn about vocal health and vocal sustainability. ::::: Daisy Press ::::: Daisy Press is the head priestess of our Voice Church. She is a prominent interpreter of experimental classical music in the US and Europe, and a gypsy street artist. As the principal singer at the House of Yes, she has most likely brought you to tears and perhaps to your knees in Ketamine: the Musical, The Xmas Spectacular and many more.

The Aesthetic Movement in America - The Met
Through June 25, 2017 - New York

This installation highlights a great strength of The Met collection—arts of the late 19th-century Anglo-American Aesthetic movement. Featuring a range of art furniture, ceramics, stained glass, metalwork, textiles, painting, and sculpture—most from the Museum's permanent holdings and a few select loans—the display explores Aestheticism as a cultural phenomenon of its time that promoted beauty as an artistic, social, and moral force, particularly in the domestic realm. The catalyst for the phenomenon's widespread popularity in the United States was the 1876 Centennial International Exhibition, held in Philadelphia, and Aestheticism remained a driving force through the late 1880s, especially in New York. The period witnessed the flourishing of an artistic culture and lifestyle movement that also encompassed painting, sculpture, and works on paper; the proliferation of art publications, clubs, and societies; an intense interest in collecting and decoration; and the founding of the nation's major art museums. Aesthetic furnishings and objects were intended for fully integrated domestic spaces—as seen, for example, in The Met's latest historical interior, the Worsham-Rockefeller Dressing Room, on view nearby—and reveal the progressive tastes and collaborative spirit of the era.

Simple Gifts: Shaker at The Met - The Met
Through June 25, 2017 - New York

The United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing—also known as the Shakers—is a utopian religious sect that rose to prominence in America in the 19th century. The Shakers distinguished themselves from mainstream American culture by establishing communities centered on the equality of the sexes, collective property, pacifism, and industry. This installation features more than two dozen works from The Met's permanent collection, including furniture, textiles, and tools, that reflect the Shakers' life and art. These objects embody the Shakers' characteristic, minimalist designs and careful craftsmanship, both of which strongly influenced 19th-century counterparts in the external world as well as 20th- and 21st-century modern artists, performers, collectors, and museums. From the 1930s to '60s, collectors Faith and Edward Andrews cultivated relationships with surviving Shaker groups in New York and New England and accumulated the most comprehensive collection of furniture, textiles, and archival objects from the Believers. In 1966, The Met acquired numerous works from the Andrewses' collection, several of which are on view in this installation. In addition, Shaker artifacts are grouped near paintings by artist Charles Sheeler (1883–1965) and a video projection of Martha Graham's modern dance Appalachian Spring, which was performed on a stage set designed by Isamu Noguchi and choreographed to Aaron Copland's timeless musical score. The blending of historic and modern artwork in this installation provides a compelling narrative on the legacy of Shaker design from the 19th through the 21st century.

The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
Through June 25, 2017 -

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine mounts an exhibition showcasing its collection of The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome which will be open from Tuesday, March 21, 2017 until Sunday, June 25, 2017 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street). The twelve-panel tapestry series, the Life of Christ, was originally installed at the Vatican and the Barberini family palaces before coming to America at the end of the nineteenth century. This exhibition brings together the series for the first time in many decades. In 2001, a major fire destroyed the Cathedral's north transept and seriously damaged several of the Life of Christ tapestries. The Textile Conservation Laboratory, renowned worldwide for its work on antique and modern textiles, has spent the past 16 years cleaning and conserving the tapestries, culminating in this highly anticipated exhibition. Fragments from one of the most heavily damaged tapestries will be displayed in the exhibition, along with text and illustrations providing a fascinating glimpse into the advanced methods and painstaking care required to return the series to its original glory. A variety of educational programs will accompany the exhibition, including family and school workshops focusing on craftsmanship and guilds. Other events during the course of the exhibition will include gallery tours, hands-on art projects, and a self-guided scavenger hunt incorporating many of the Cathedral's sumptuous artworks.

Kendra Shank - 55 Bar
Through June 30, 2017 - New York

Kendra Shank - Voice Mark Soskin - Keyboard Dean Johnson - Bass "This vocalist makes lyrics believable, invents like an instrumentalist, and has an ear second to none for little-known and unknown tunes." - BOSTON GLOBE New CD on Ride Symbol Records... HALF MOON Live in New York KENDRA SHANK AND GEOFFREY KEEZER Kendra Shank and Geoffrey Keezer's musical association began in 2008 at the Athenaeum jazz series in San Diego, CA when a cancelled flight prevented Shank's New York pianist from making the gig. With just 30 minutes to rehearse, Keezer stepped in with a seamless performance and instant chemistry with Shank that inspired a standing ovation. Kendra called on Geoffrey's trio for subsequent West Coast tours and their musical connection deepened. In January 2015, while Geoffrey was in Manhattan on an engagement with Chris Botti, he and Kendra performed an afternoon concert at a friend's home. The intimate duo setting provided the pianist and vocalist unlimited freedom to create spontaneously in the moment, taking the enthusiastic audience on a magical journey that was captured on this Ride Symbol recording. The title song "Half Moon," inspired by a lamp hanging over the piano, was completely improvised and reveals Shank at her most vulnerable. Keezer's 88-key orchestra of harmonic and rhythmic virtuosity and Shank's exotic wordless vocalizations are highlighted in Cedar Walton's "Life's Mosaic," while the duo's lyrical side shines on the debut recording of Jeremy Siskind's "Kneel" (winner of ASCAP's Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award). The chart for "When Love Was You and Me" (Abbey Lincoln/Thad Jones) was given to Kendra in 1994 by her mentor Abbey Lincoln when Kendra visited her Upper West Side apartment -- coincidentally in the same building where this concert took place. Throughout this diverse and inspired set, Shank & Keezer embody the joy and playful inventiveness of making music as interactive partners, transcending the singer-accompanist mold.

Signs of Life - Arts brookfield
Through June 30, 2017 - New York

$5 parking after 4 pm with validation 735 S. Figueroa Street Los Angeles, CA 90017 Arts Brookfield presents a multi-property, large scale vinyl art installation by John Van Hamersveld, the well-known LA based artist who has played an instrumental role in shaping the visual culture of rock 'n' roll and SoCal life since the 1960s. Through the dynamic and vibrant retro graphics featured in Signs of Life, you will be introduced to the artwork of an LA icon who is truly a part of design history! About John Van Hamersveld Even if someone thinks they do not know the artwork of John Van Hamersveld, they have probably come face to face with it at some point in their life, possibly through the album artwork of their favorite band, through an experience at the 1984 Olympics that Van Hamersveld was commissioned to design, or at the drive through window of a Fatburger that he re-branded. Holding influential positions as an Art Director for Surfer Magazine and Capitol Records, he designed hundreds of album covers for musicians like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles along with leading the surf culture aesthetic for decades. His iconic image for the movie The Endless Summer in 1964 and his concert poster for Jimi Hendrix at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium in 1968 have become two of the most recognizable and well-known images in their respective genres, securing Van Hamersveld's place in design history. The Signs of Life installation will include a unique vinyl design on the upper plaza at FIGat7th, as well as four portraits of famous musicians and composers in the windows of Bank of America, facing Hope St and the famous Walt Disney Concert Hall on Grand. Through this colorful, dynamic, and vibrant pop imagery, you will be introduced, or reconnected, to the work of an LA icon.

The Roof - Arts brookfield
Through July 05, 2017 - New York

Floating above the Winter Garden, The Roof is a site-specific suspended sculpture by Thai artist, Pinaree Sanpitak that celebrates collaboration and coexistence. The Roof is composed of translucent canopies hanging among the Winter Garden palm trees that create a literal but temporary 'roof.' Made from raw silk, glass fiber, non-woven fabric, wires, hooks, chains and aluminum modular truss, The Roof was constructed to interact with the architecture of Brookfield Place — as well as the palms and the people who pass through each day, forming a delicate, surreal shelter within the walls of the Winter Garden. ABOUT PINAREE SANPITAK Pinaree Sanpitak is one of the most compelling and respected Thai artists of her generation, and her work can be counted among the most powerful explorations of women's experience in all of Southeast Asia. Her primary inspiration has been the female body, distilled to its most basic forms and imbued with an ethereal spirituality. The quiet, Zen-like abstraction of her work owes something to her training in Japan and sets it somewhat apart from the colorful intensity of much Thai art. Her rigorous focus on the female form, explored through a variety of media – painting, drawing, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, performance, and culinary arts, to name but a few – has resulted in an astoundingly varied and innovative body of work. For the past twenty years, a central motif in her work has been the female breast, which she relates to imagery of the natural world and to the iconic forms of the Buddhist stupa (shrine) and offering bowl. Often called a feminist or Buddhist artist, she resists such easy categorizations, preferring to let her work speak to each viewer directly, to the heart and soul, with the most basic language of form, color, and texture. Her work is not lacking in a conceptual framework, but it is one informed primarily by a deeply felt spiritual sense rather than by rigid dogmas or ideological constructs.

Through July 15, 2017 - New York

Myopia is the first retrospective of the work of Mark Mothersbaugh, chronicling the beginning of his career in the early 1970s through the present. Best known as the lead singer of the American New Wave band DEVO, Mothersbaugh has also been a prolific visual artist since the band’s inception. Much of his artwork originates from ink drawings on postcards which he has been producing daily since the 1970s. Filled with outlandish characters and surreal settings, these postcards provide the basic imagery for a large part of his diverse body of work on view which includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, rugs and videos. Combining handmade qualities and elements of consumer culture, Motherbaugh’s work explores the relationship between technology and individuality in an impersonal consumer driven society. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern - Brooklyn Museum
Through July 23, 2017 - Brooklyn

Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern offers a new look at an iconic American artist who had her first solo museum exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, in 1927. Presenting O'Keeffe's remarkable wardrobe in dialogue with iconic paintings and photographs spanning her career, this singular exhibition provides a focused examination of the modernist aesthetic persona O'Keeffe crafted for herself through her dress, her art, and her progressive, independent lifestyle. Included are photographs by such luminaries as Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Annie Leibovitz, Philippe Halsman, Yousuf Karsh, Cecil Beaton, Bruce Weber, and others. These images and the garments and artworks on view confirm O'Keeffe's radical rethinking of female identity. Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern examines her drive to overturn the early, reductive characterization of her as solely a woman artist who created "feminine imagery," as well as her often conflicted relationship with second-wave feminists who championed her work in the 1970s. The exhibition also reveals O'Keeffe's commitment to core principles associated with modernism —minimalism, seriality, simplification—not only in her art, but also in her distinctive style of dress.

Organized around themes of work, play, love, exploration, dreaming, and more, Dancers Among Us celebrates life in a way that's fresh, surprising, original, universal. There's no photoshopping here, no trampolines, no gimmicks, no tricks. Just a photographer, his vision, and the serendipity of what happens when the shutter clicks. The exhibition at Brookfield Place (230 Vesey Shops, 2nd level) features twenty large-scale aluminum and vinyl prints, and an incredible video compilation of behind-the-scenes film. ABOUT JORDAN MATTER Jordan Matter was selected as one of 2015's "Top Emerging Artists" (Art Business News) and was recently honored as one of 2017's "Top 100 Photographers on the Web" (XXLPIX).

His critically acclaimed follow up book, Dancers After Dark (Workman Publishing, 2016), was featured in media throughout the world.

- Dia - Chelsea
Through July 29, 2017 - New York

Dia presents an exhibition of Kishio Suga's work at Dia:Chelsea at 541 West 22nd Street in New York City. Suga is a founding member of Mono-ha (School of Things), which emerged in Japan in the 1960s and 1970s and developed in parallel with Postminimal and Land art in the United States and Arte Povera in Europe—movements at the core of Dia's permanent collection. Curated by Jessica Morgan and Alexis Lowry, this is Suga's first solo museum show in the United States. In this exhibition, Suga responds to the building's unique history as a marble-cutting facility by recreating his Placement of Condition (1973), a signature installation of cut stones that lean precariously away from each other, but are bound together with wire into a mutually dependent and stable network. This work is on view alongside a selection of other significant historical installations and new works conceived specifically for Dia that explore issues of balance and structure and that respond to the physical parameters of the space. His new commission investigates material equilibrium through a series of interweaving metal rods that are perched on top of wooden uprights. Kishio Suga is made possible by significant support from Marissa Sackler. Generous support is also provided by Blum & Poe, Frances Bowes, Nathalie and Charles de Gunzburg, and Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, with additional support from Estrellita B. Brodsky and the Japan Foundation, New York.

Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection - MoMA PS1
Through July 30, 2017 - Long Island City

This exhibition brings together work made in the past decade by more than a dozen artists. These recent additions to the Museum's collection explore the unrest, anxiety, and critical reflection that characterizes our world. Responding to today's fierce identity politics and crises of truth, the exhibition includes artworks that construct imagined scenarios or use observation of real events in subjective depictions. In particular, the works consider the vagaries of state violence, the implications of global capitalism, and the contemporary reverberations of transatlantic slavery. These artists look back to traditions both within and beyond the visual arts, such as readymade sculpture, film montage, and folk storytelling, to imagine possibilities for an uncertain future. The exhibition includes works by John Akomfrah, Jonathas de Andrade, Anna Boghiguian, Samuel Fosso, Iman Issa, Cameron Rowland, Wolfgang Tillmans, Kara Walker, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, among others. Organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art and Director MoMA PS1; Lucy Gallun, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art; Christian Rattemeyer, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints; and Yasmil Raymond, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture.

The Global Angel Wings Project - Arts brookfield
Through July 30, 2017 - New York

Arts Brookfield presents Colette Miller's Global Angels Wings Project in Houston after two successful exhibitions in Los Angeles and Perth, Australia. Three sets of beautifully painted wings have been commissioned for 1600 Smith, one set inside the lobby and two sets outside at the Smith Street lawn. LA?based musician, filmmaker and visual artist Colette Miller asks everyone to "manifest as your higher selves, your higher consciousness, your angelic selves" as you discover The Global Angel Wings Project. ABOUT COLETTE MILLER I have always been creative—visually in my paintings and film-making; musically through my band, DayGlo Aborigines. Past bands include GWAR, Milk and Blest. Art has continued to define most of my life's purpose since graduating Art School at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, continuing film studies at UCLA, editing, filming for Econews, independent documentary film projects in Burkina Faso on the water shortage, and on The Global Angels Wings Project with the Kayole Wings Miller boxing Club in Kenya. My art is inspired by my heart, dreams, philosophies, memories, psychic or intuitive forces and color and movement. I never consider a painting finished until I reach a point of love for the piece, a certain wholeness and completeness; where nothing essentially nags at me, telling me its not done. I believe successful art tends to invoke a type of meditation or mind travel.

Show and Tell: Stories in Chinese Painting - The Met
Through August 06, 2017 - New York

In China, paintings that tell stories serve as powerful vehicles to promote political agendas, endorse cultural values, or express personal thoughts. With masterpieces dating from the fourth century, narrative is the earliest established genre in Chinese painting. This exhibition is the first at The Met to explore the various ways in which Chinese artists have gone beyond mere illustration to convey multiple layers of meaning. Displaying works from the 12th century to the present, this exhibition introduces three distinct modes of pictorial storytelling: multipart illustrations presented in long handscrolls, often punctuated with passages of text; single iconic scenes that evoke an entire story; and generic landscapes or flower-and-bird paintings that acquire narrative significance through the artist's inscription. The exhibition is further organized by theme: historical events, seasonal progression, warfare, journeys, Buddhist and Confucian values, and family and friendship. One special gallery focuses on a grandiose military narrative—that of China's annexation of East Turkestan in the 1750s. The installation, a collaboration among three Museum departments, features a suite of European engravings alongside Chinese weaponry and a painting to show how an emperor exploited art for his own aggrandizement. Contemporary Chinese artists have continued the narrative tradition with an expanded repertoire of subjects and approaches. The examples on display range from reflections on the creative process to critiques of modern technology and government policies. Together, the approximately 60 pictorial works and 30 decorative art objects, most from The Met collection, present a comprehensive view of the narrative genre, demonstrating its expressive versatility and continuing relevance.

Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994), inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire.

And in ReComposed, inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s Dystopia.

Within this intensely intimate work, we explore the physicality of fulfillment and disappointment, and the tension between the comfort one finds in community and the stifling pressure to conform. in the shelter of the fold is comprised of a cycle of six imagistic dances that can be shown as stand-alone works or as an interrelated episodic event. The dance’s score comprises works by six of the most innovative 21st century composers working today. RECOMPOSED (2015), Music by Michael Gordon ReComposed is a visual dance creation inspired by American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, set to Michael Gordon’s explosive score, Dystopia. With gestural, sometimes violent brushwork, Mitchell described her paintings as “an organism that turns in space.” I recognize this visceral energy within my own dance making, creating human moving landscapes that hauntingly echo Mitchell’s explosions on canvas. “Varone created a moving work of art.” - The Durham Herald “Mr. Varone is uncommonly adept in setting a stage aswirl with lines of energy. Bodies tangle and untangle at high speed, with limbs loosely flying, and if their paths left marks in the air, the result might indeed resemble one of the Mitchell pastels that are the inspiration for ‘ReComposed.’” - The New York Times POSSESSION (1994), Music by Philip Glass “Through lashing movement sprung from ordinary gesture, along with evocative lifts, holds and falls, ‘Possession’ evokes the temper of our time – equal parts isolation, anxiety, violence and anomie.” - New York Magazine THE FABULIST (2014), Music by David Lang “Varone is, I believe, a great humanist. Something, probably honesty, makes his movement powerfully touching – you feel like he is telling you secrets in the dark. I was brought to tears by this sight and pretty much all of the dance. If Varone has ever interested you, do not miss this solo.” - Five Points LUX (2006), Music by Philip Glass “Luxuriant. ‘Lux’ is all about freedom. It is what dancing really feels like, the kind of dancing I might dream about: loose and sweeping in a spirit of exultation. Varone puts the beating heart at the center of his work.” - The Washington Post STRICT LOVE (1994), Musical selections from various popular artists “This gray persona, which all the dancers took on, juxtaposed to the music, which included Diana Ross’s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,’ was bizarre and fascinating. ‘Strict Love’ was one of those dances that leaves audiences begging for more.” - The Daily Gazette STRIPPED/DRESSED: A unique concept for an evening of dance Building off the huge success of Varone’s sold-out NYC studio series, STRIPPED, Varone is taking his idea to the Mainstage as a way of opening dialogues with new dance presenters and their audiences nationwide. It opens doors for new dance audiences, allowing them to literally see the process of how a dance unfolds from beginnings to fruition in one evening. * STRIPPED: Varone’s articulate and insightful way of dissecting his choreography for dance audiences helps to demystify the art form for many viewers, and provides an overture for experiencing his work. The first half of the evening, with Varone as MC, provides an intimate look at his creative process. The Company, dressed in only rehearsal clothes, under simple lights, presents a detailed look into the intricacies of how dances are created and performed * DRESSED: After a short Q&A and an intermission, the Company returns with the second half of the evening: presenting fully produced dances, complete with lights and costumes.

Making Space: Women Artists and Post War Abstraction - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through August 13, 2017 - New York

(now-8/13) Making Space: Women Artists & Postwar Abstractions at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Making Space shines a spotlight on the stunning but still relatively under-recognized achievements of women artists between the end of World War II (1945) and the start of the Feminist movement (around 1968). In the postwar era, societal shifts made it possible for larger numbers of women to work professionally as artists, yet their work was often dismissed in the male dominated art world, and few support networks existed for them. Abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years, as many artists working in the aftermath of World War II sought an international language that might transcend national and regional narratives—and for women artists, additionally, those relating to gender.

Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

This survey, the first museum exhibition on Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974) in the United States, coincides with the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of this revered and distinctive Italian artist—a canonical art brut figure included in Jean Dubuffet's collection from the 1960s. The show highlights four distinct phases in Zinelli's oeuvre and new scholarship, through a selection of fifty-five paintings (many displayed double-sided), audio recordings of Zinelli, a film, and images by Life magazine photographer John Phillips. The exhibition brings together artworks from the American Folk Art Museum and other private and public collections from the United States and abroad, notably the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli, Verona, and the collection of Audrey B. Heckler, New York. Curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut. An exhibition brochure is available.

Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible - American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

Throughout his life, Eugen Gabritschevsky displayed a precocious passion for the natural sciences, particularly entomology. Born in Russia, he completed advanced degrees in biology and genetics in Moscow, before pursuing postdoctoral studies in 1925 at Columbia University. Soon after he joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1927, his successful career was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931. There, and for the rest of his life, Gabritschevsky elaborated a prolific, refined, and heterogeneous body of work—gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper—imbued with his early scientific interests, observation skills, and a propensity for experimentation. This first in-depth exhibition of Gabritschevsky's relatively unknown artistic contribution is composed of more than eighty artworks, a film, publications, and archival documents. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, and La maison rouge, Paris. The New York presentation is curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut.

Ed Palermo Big Band - Iridium
Through August 21, 2017 - New York

Palermo's Big Band has been together since 1980 and has been playing and honing the music of Frank Zappa (among other composers) for over 20 years, mainly in performance at the Iridium nightclub in New York City and The Falcon in Marlboro, NY. Their CDs have achieved rave reviews from a wide array of music magazines, including Downbeat, which did a recent 3 page story on Ed and his band. Ed was recently listed as one of the top 40 "intriguing musicians to watch out for" by the online magazine, The Daily Beast. When not playing Zappa, the Ed Palermo Big Band also pays tribute to other heroes of Ed such as Todd Rundgren and Paul Butterfield. Ed's most recent CD, "Electric Butter-a Tribute to the Chicago Blues Music of Paul Butterfield and Mike Bloomfield" garnered yet another rave review in Downbeat Magazine. Known for his uncanny penchant to "mash up" music of disparate sources, Ed Palermo and his band often play a show he calls Zodd Zundgren-The Music of Frank Zappa and Todd Rundgren. At a recent show at the Falcon, they managed to take this concept a step further by embedding this mash up into a "Wizard of Oz" storyline, calling it, "The Wizard of Zodd". With the Ed Palermo Big Band, the key element is unpredictability. The audience never knows what to expect except pure unfiltered insanity and brilliance.

Love in Venice - New York Public Library: Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
Through August 26, 2017 - Manhattan

This exhibition is part of Carnegie Hall's citywide festival La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic. A tolerant and secular state, the Venetian Republic originated in the lagoon communities around Venice and existed for half a millennium, from 1297 until 1797. Dominated by a merchant capitalist elite who did business through sea trade, the Republic of Venice enjoyed an autonomy and freedom that was not typical of the rest of Italy, and which for centuries made it a destination for love and pleasure. Titled "Love in Venice," the exhibition at The New York Public Library will examine the literary, artistic, musical and cultural aspects of Venice's seductiveness, including its beautiful courtesans, lavish festivals, lively carnivals and libertine counter-culture. On view will be works as diverse as the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, one of the most iconic works produced in Venice to explore ideas of desire, to flap books showing the undergarments of Venetian prostitutes, etchings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, letters from Lord Byron's paramours and examples of wedding poetry celebrating the unions of leading European families.

Some of the experiences include: The Invisible Eye allows you to see an eyeball construct itself from thin air Gaze into a mirror and morph into your inner animal at All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures. Delicate Boundaries creates a space that allows the worlds inside our digital devices to move into the physical realm as bugs crawl off the screen and onto your body, Counter, using a trompe l’oeil effect, tries to convince us that a two dimensional object is actually three dimensional.

Collecting the Arts of Mexico - The Met
Through September 04, 2017 - New York

In 1911, Emily Johnston de Forest gave her collection of pottery from Mexico to The Met. Calling it "Mexican maiolica," she highlighted its importance as a North American artistic achievement. De Forest was the daughter of the Museum's first president and, with her husband, Robert, a founder of The American Wing. The De Forests envisioned building a collection of Mexican art, and, even though their ambitions were frustrated at the time, the foundational gift of more than one hundred pieces of pottery anchors The Met's holdings. Today, more than a century later, their vision resonates as the Museum commits to collecting and exhibiting not just the arts of Mexico, but all of Latin America. This exhibition highlights the early contributions of the De Forests and others, and presents recent additions to the collection for the first time.

The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals - Frick Collection
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

The Frick Collection recently announced the largest acquisition in its history — a promised gift of approximately 450 portrait medals from the incomparable collection of Stephen K. and Janie Woo Scher. Representing the development of the art of the portrait medal from its inception in fifteenth-century Italy to the nineteenth century, the Scher collection is arguably the world's most comprehensive and significant collection of portrait medals. Comments Director Ian Wardropper, "Henry Clay Frick had an abiding interest in portraiture as expressed in the paintings, sculpture, enamels, and works on paper he acquired. The Scher medals will coalesce beautifully with these holdings, being understood in our galleries within the broader contexts of European art and culture. At the same time, the intimate scale of the institution will offer a superb platform for the medals to be appreciated as an independent art form, one long overdue for fresh attention and public appreciation." To celebrate the promised gift, The Frick Collection will mount an exhibition this spring entitled The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals. The exhibition will explore the flourishing of the medallic arts in major European centers of artistic production and will feature superlative examples by masters of the art such as Pisanello (Italy), Dupré (France), and Reinhart (Germany). Taking and fresh approach to the study of medals, which have often been viewed in the past as specialist objects closer to the field of numismatics, this exhibition will examine medals within the larger context of art, honoring them as a triumph of sculptural production on a small scale. Visitors to the show will encounter a number of renowned sculptors who were also masters of the medal. The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals is organized by Aimee Ng, Associate Curator at the Frick, and Stephen K. Scher, an esteemed art historian as well as a collector. Accompanying the exhibition is a richly illustrated exhibition catalogue including an essay by Aimee Ng. (In the spring of 2018, a catalogue of the entire Scher Collection will be published, featuring essays by leading medals scholars and illustrated entries about each of the almost one thousand medals in the collection.)

Late Antique Textiles and Modern Design - The Met
Through October 01, 2017 - New York

Artists and designers often look to the past to find inspiration for their own work. This exhibition—drawn entirely from The Met collection—compares foliate patterns and roundels that are found on textiles from the Late Roman, Byzantine, and Early Islamic periods in Egypt to similar motifs in postcards by the Wiener Werkstätte and on garments designed by Mariano Fortuny (1871–1949). Created in Egypt between about 200 and 600, the textiles on view include a child's dress; fragments from a sleeve, tunic, and blanket or cover; and other fragments whose original use is not known. Variations of the scrolling vines and stylized motifs that adorn these textiles can be seen on works created nearly 1500 years later. The renowned Spanish-born designer Mariano Fortuny was active in Venice, where he founded a textile workshop and commercial silk printing factory. His exquisite designs fuse the ancient and the modern, the local and the exotic. Three different Fortuny-designed silk coats from the first three decades of the 20th century are shown over the course of the exhibition. In cut and ornament, these items harken back to Late Antique historical sources. Founded in 1903 in reaction both to the neoclassical academies of Vienna and increasing industrialization, the Wiener Werkstätte collective sought to incorporate arts and crafts into all aspects of daily life and placed a premium on the handmade. Eight color lithographs created between 1907 and 1912 by various artists and designers affiliated with the group are also on view. Motifs similar to those found on Late Antique textiles were used as graphic elements in these cards and postcards.

On The Line: Intrepid & The Vietnam War - Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
Through October 02, 2017 - New York

On October 16, 2015, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will unveil On the Line: Intrepid and the Vietnam War, a major exhibition exploring the events and impact of the Vietnam War through the lens of Intrepid's history. The exhibition, which coincides with the 40th anniversary of the conclusion of the war, will offer a site-specific immersion into an important chapter of American history.The legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid served three tours of duty in Vietnam between 1966 and 1969. Set within the very spaces where men lived and served, the exhibition will focus on the experiences of Intrepid and its crew "on the line"—the periods when the ship was active in the Gulf of Tonkin, launching aircraft for missions over mainland Vietnam. This localized history will serve as the starting point for understanding the larger historical landscape, including the Cold War, Operation Rolling Thunder and protests at home. The exhibition will include artifacts, photographs and film clips from the Museum's collection, many of which will be on display for the first time. The exhibition will also draw from the Museum's Oral History Project, an initiative launched in 2013 to record and preserve the stories of those who served on Intrepid, offering visitors the chance to hear the experiences of veterans in their own words, and to learn history firsthand. The exhibition, which is free with the price of admission, will include education programs for teachers and students, and a series of public programs to generate conversation and artistic expression.

Colors of the Universe: Chinese Hardstone Carvings - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Hardstone carving is one of the oldest arts in China, dating back to the fifth millennium B.C. It was not until the Qing dynasty, however, that an abundant supply of raw material, extraordinary craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage allowed the art to flourish. During the 18th century, widespread prosperity and successful military campaigns brought political stability, while also securing the trade routes that permitted the importation of gemstones over the Silk Roads and through sea trade routes from as far away as Europe. Showcasing a selection of 75 exquisite carvings drawn from The Met collection, this exhibition presents the lapidary art of China's Qing dynasty (1644–1911). Featuring not only jade, the most esteemed of East Asian gems, but also agate, malachite, turquoise, quartz, amber, coral, and lapis lazuli, the exhibition reveals the extensive variety of hardstones and full palette of vibrant colors that were favored at the imperial court. Exploring the diverse subjects and styles of Qing lapidary art, Colors of the Universe illustrates the extraordinary imagination and technical virtuosity behind these miniature sculptures.

From the Imperial Theater: Chinese Opera Costumes of the 18th and 19th Centuries - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

Drawn entirely from The Met collection, this exhibition examines these luxury textiles from artistic and technical points of view. It is organized in two rotations. The first focuses on costumes used in dramas based on historical events; and the second will feature costumes from plays derived from legends and myths. The presentation showcases eight robes, each of which was created for a specific role—court lady, official, general, monk, nun, and immortal. A set of album leaves faithfully depicting theatrical characters wearing such robes is also displayed. The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed a flowering of Chinese drama. Under the patronage of the Qing court (1644–1911), performances—including the "Peking Opera"—filled the Forbidden City in Beijing. A form of traditional Chinese theater, Peking Opera was developed fully by the mid-19th century, and because of the form's minimal stage settings and the importance of exaggerated gestures and movements, costume played an unusually significant role. This exhibition includes superb examples with interior markings indicating their use in court productions.

Cinnabar: The Chinese Art of Carved Lacquer, 14th to 19th Century - The Met
Through October 09, 2017 - New York

This exhibition, featuring 45 magnificent examples of Chinese carved lacquer drawn entirely from The Met collection, will explore the development of this significant artistic tradition. Among the objects on view will be works created as birthday gifts bearing symbols of long life, such as peaches, cranes, the character for longevity (shou), and representations of children. One of the highlights is a unique, large, lobed tray of the 14th century, carved with a delightful scene showing two women and 33 children. Other early pieces on view include a dish with a scene of long-tailed birds and hollyhocks. A rare screen that was produced by Lu Guisheng—a famous 19th-century artist and one of the few individuals working in lacquer whose name is recorded in Chinese history—provides a spectacular finale to this tradition. Lacquer, the resin of a family of trees found in southern China, hardens when exposed to oxygen and humidity and can become a natural plastic. Tinted with cinnabar (red), carbon (black), and other minerals, it has been used as an artistic medium in China since at least the sixth century B.C. Carved lacquer, which involves applying multiple layers of lacquer onto a substructure (usually wood) and then entails carving through the layers, is the most laborious and time-consuming of all lacquering techniques.

Asian Art at 100: A History in Photographs - The Met
Through October 11, 2017 - New York

Since The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870, the institution's physical space and collection have grown and its curatorial departments have diversified. The first Asian works of art to enter the collection—mostly ceramics and lacquers—were acquired in 1879 and originally accommodated in what was then called the Department of Decorative Arts. Only in 1915 was a separate Department of Far Eastern Art established, and it was not until 1986 that its name was changed to the Department of Asian Art. The timeline presented in the photographs in this exhibition chronicles the changing face of The Met's galleries of Asian art as the building's footprint has expanded, exhibition styles have evolved, and the collection has grown. Forever a work in progress, The Met's collection of Asian art is ultimately the product of the passion and scholarship of the many collectors, curators, donors, dealers, and directors who have together shaped the Museum's holdings and legacy.

Jaimoe himself contributes the following biographical insights: This is Jaimoe. No, I did not play at Monterey. I played with Otis Redding 4/18/66 through 9/5/66 in the band that did "Otis – Live at the Whiskey A-Go-Go". I joined that band a week after that record was recorded. A very good friend of mine, a very good sax player and a hell of an organizer, Donald "Cadillac" Henry, was a great reason for me getting that break and a lot of others, right up to the fact of the reason I was in Macon was because Donald told me to go to Macon. Phil Walden was putting a recording studio in Macon which was Capricorn Records. Phil Walden and Otis Redding had a company called Redwal Music.

Dreams Of The Kings: A Jade Suit For Eternity - China Institute
Through November 12, 2017 - Upper East Side

In 201 BCE, the first emperor of the Han Dynasty knighted his younger brother as the first king of the Chu Kingdom, which was centered in Peng Cheng, today's Xuzhou, in northern Jiangsu Province. Ruling under the emperor's protection, and given special exemption from imperial taxes, elites in this Kingdom enjoyed a lavish lifestyle. Twelve generations of kings lived, died, and were buried in sumptuous tombs carved into the nearby rocky hills. Since the mid 20th Century, nearly hundred tombs were excavated, revealing contents that testify to the Chu kings' affluence, as well as their beliefs in immortality and the afterlife. One of the most stunning finds was an elaborate jade sarcophagi burial suit, assembled from thousands of pieces of jade, the precious stone adored by Chinese people since the Neolithic period as an auspicious material that could ensure immortality. This exhibition will feature the jade suit, and other tomb contents that highlight how these powerful and wealthy kings prepared for death and envisioned their afterlife to come.

On any Sunday you can visit with the Harlem Gospel Choir and enjoy a soul food brunch at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City. Here the Choir brings its experience of Harlem and the Black Church to Times Square in a foot-stomping, hand-clapping show for fans from around the world. The homestyle all-you-can-eat Southern buffet is guaranteed to fill the hole in your soul, and the Choir's joyous performance will have you dancing on the stage. The world famous Harlem Gospel Choir is the most renowned gospel choir in America and a preeminent gospel choir worldwide. It travels the globe, sharing the joy of faith through its music and raising funds for children's charities. The Choir was founded in 1986 by Allen Bailey, who got the idea for the Choir while attending a celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the Cotton Club in Harlem. The Choir presents the finest singers and musicians from Harlem's Black Churches and the New York/Tri-State area. Harlem Gospel Choir have performed alongside superstars such as Bono, Diana Ross, The Gorillaz, Andre Rieu and most recently Damon Albarn and Pharrell Williams. They have performed for three Presidents (President Obama, President Carter and President Nelson Mandela), two Popes (Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI) and have recorded with the likes of Sir Keith Richards, The Chieftains, and Trace Adkins. Deeply rooted in the history of the African-American slave trade, black gospel music can be traced back to the 1700s when African slaves brought their unique African musical heritage to America and combined it with their new faith - Christianity. Out of the hardship and the trials of slavery, this unique musical tradition came to be, and forever changed music as we know it. Blues, Soul, and Rock-and-Roll...they all have origins in black gospel music. Harlem Gospel Choir presents modern gospel classics as performed in the black churches of Harlem today. The Harlem Gospel Choir's songs of gospel and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul and lift your spirit to angelic heights, with sounds that are unfettered, joyous, and inspirational. With every performance, the Choir shares the renaissance of Harlem's culture with the audience. Every performance will take your breath away!

B.B. King Blues Club All*Stars - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
Through November 28, 2017 - New York

The Harlem Blues Project specializes in soulful New York blues with a twist! The band features blues masters Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack, and Barry Harrison plus a revolving cast of NYC's finest blues musicians including Bill Sims Jr., Michael Hill, Irving Louis Lattin and Solomon Hicks. Jerry was raised in Harlem and caught the music bug early in life. A fateful walk through Washington Square Park found him being introduced to the New York City Blues scene by way of the now infamous Dan Lynch Blues Bar. Jerry spent the next thirteen years learning to play Bass and sing, while also hosting the Saturday and Sunday Blues Jams. There Jerry Shared his stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and many more Blues Artists. His Bass baritone voice and thunderous bass playing have earned him a place in New York's Blues Hall of Fame. Jerry's band "The Dugger Brothers" are a staple on the New York City Blues scene. Influenced by Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Jan Akkerman, and Wes Montgomery, Junior Mack deftly displays these influences, although the foundation of his playing lies in the soulfulness of Gospel and Blues. An opportunity to play for the late Pops Staples and the encouraging reaction from both Pops and Mavis Staples was the first in a chain of events that drove Mack to present his interpretation of the blues to a wider audience. He has sat in or worked with The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts, and Honeyboy Edwards. He has also recorded an excellent CD, Live Adventures. Drummer Barry Harrison spent five and a half years with the legendary Johnny Copeland, and after his passing, Harrison went on to spend six years working with his daughter, Shemekia Copeland. He has also worked with Sonny Rhodes, Eddie Kirkland, Phil Guy, and Lonnie Shields. Bill Sims, Jr., is an American blues musician. He grew up in Marion, Ohio and began playing piano at the age of four. At age 14, he turned professional and joined the rhythm and blues band the Jacksonian Blues, which he left to attend Ohio State University. In 1971, Sims joined another rhythm and blues group, the doo-wop-influenced Four Mints. He left the band in 1976 to form The Lamorians, an avant-garde jazz band influenced by traditional African drumming. In 1988, he returned to the blues, founding Bill Sims and the Cold Blooded Blues Band. He released his debut album, Blues Before Sunrise, in 1992, and in 1999, PBS did a 10-hour documentary on Sims and his interracialfamily (with Sims's partner Karen Wilson). Sims released another album to coincide with this broadcast. Michael Hill is a 2011 inductee into the New York Blues Hall of Fame as a Master Blues Artist. Michael Hill's Blues Mob has recorded six internationally released albums of their Original, New York-Style Blues. The Mob has captivated audiences in twenty-nine countries around the globe. Beginning with "Bloodlines", their 1994 Alligator Records debut, they've built a distinguished body of work that has drawn world-wide critical and audience acclaim for dynamic musicianship and vivid storytelling. Michael Hill's lyrics eloquently convey the passion, the humor and the desire for freedom and justice that are intrinsic to the blues. The band transmits those lyrics through blues that is seasoned with flavors of rock, R&B, funk and more, making every show a celebration of music, life and love. Native Chicagoan Irving Louis Lattin has been playing since he was 13 years old. He grew up on the music of blues and gospel, listening to artists like Mahalia Jackson, the Staple Singers, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Motown, Memphis/Stax, and the British Invasion. The list of influences is endless. He began writing songs when he was 17 and also began playing the piano when he turned 25. Now at the ripe old age of ??, he is still making the music he loves, which is a blend of R&B, pop, and funk. Solomon Hicks is a 18 year old guitarist/singer prodigy musician. He excels in Jazz, Blues, Classical, Gospel, R&B, Funk and classic Rock. Solomon performs several times a week at the COTTON CLUB. He has a CD with the Cotton Club All Stars Band, featuring Solomon, at 14 years old.

B.B. King Blues Club All*Stars - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
Through November 28, 2017 - New York

The Harlem Blues Project specializes in soulful New York blues with a twist! The band features blues masters Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack, and Barry Harrison plus a revolving cast of NYC's finest blues musicians including Bill Sims Jr., Michael Hill, Irving Louis Lattin and Solomon Hicks. Jerry was raised in Harlem and caught the music bug early in life. A fateful walk through Washington Square Park found him being introduced to the New York City Blues scene by way of the now infamous Dan Lynch Blues Bar. Jerry spent the next thirteen years learning to play Bass and sing, while also hosting the Saturday and Sunday Blues Jams. There Jerry Shared his stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and many more Blues Artists. His Bass baritone voice and thunderous bass playing have earned him a place in New York's Blues Hall of Fame. Jerry's band "The Dugger Brothers" are a staple on the New York City Blues scene. Influenced by Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Jan Akkerman, and Wes Montgomery, Junior Mack deftly displays these influences, although the foundation of his playing lies in the soulfulness of Gospel and Blues. An opportunity to play for the late Pops Staples and the encouraging reaction from both Pops and Mavis Staples was the first in a chain of events that drove Mack to present his interpretation of the blues to a wider audience. He has sat in or worked with The Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts, and Honeyboy Edwards. He has also recorded an excellent CD, Live Adventures. Drummer Barry Harrison spent five and a half years with the legendary Johnny Copeland, and after his passing, Harrison went on to spend six years working with his daughter, Shemekia Copeland. He has also worked with Sonny Rhodes, Eddie Kirkland, Phil Guy, and Lonnie Shields. Bill Sims, Jr., is an American blues musician. He grew up in Marion, Ohio and began playing piano at the age of four. At age 14, he turned professional and joined the rhythm and blues band the Jacksonian Blues, which he left to attend Ohio State University. In 1971, Sims joined another rhythm and blues group, the doo-wop-influenced Four Mints. He left the band in 1976 to form The Lamorians, an avant-garde jazz band influenced by traditional African drumming. In 1988, he returned to the blues, founding Bill Sims and the Cold Blooded Blues Band. He released his debut album, Blues Before Sunrise, in 1992, and in 1999, PBS did a 10-hour documentary on Sims and his interracialfamily (with Sims's partner Karen Wilson). Sims released another album to coincide with this broadcast. Michael Hill is a 2011 inductee into the New York Blues Hall of Fame as a Master Blues Artist. Michael Hill's Blues Mob has recorded six internationally released albums of their Original, New York-Style Blues. The Mob has captivated audiences in twenty-nine countries around the globe. Beginning with "Bloodlines", their 1994 Alligator Records debut, they've built a distinguished body of work that has drawn world-wide critical and audience acclaim for dynamic musicianship and vivid storytelling. Michael Hill's lyrics eloquently convey the passion, the humor and the desire for freedom and justice that are intrinsic to the blues. The band transmits those lyrics through blues that is seasoned with flavors of rock, R&B, funk and more, making every show a celebration of music, life and love. Native Chicagoan Irving Louis Lattin has been playing since he was 13 years old. He grew up on the music of blues and gospel, listening to artists like Mahalia Jackson, the Staple Singers, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Motown, Memphis/Stax, and the British Invasion. The list of influences is endless. He began writing songs when he was 17 and also began playing the piano when he turned 25. Now at the ripe old age of ??, he is still making the music he loves, which is a blend of R&B, pop, and funk. Solomon Hicks is a 18 year old guitarist/singer prodigy musician. He excels in Jazz, Blues, Classical, Gospel, R&B, Funk and classic Rock. Solomon performs several times a week at the COTTON CLUB. He has a CD with the Cotton Club All Stars Band, featuring Solomon, at 14 years old.

Through December 02, 2017 - Manhattan

The Lofty Mountains: The Famous Mountains of China will introduce the geography, history, legends, and cultures that are associated with famous Chinese mountains; The Pure Sound of Landscape: The Mountains and Chinese Landscape Aesthetic will introduce the renowned Chinese landscape painting aesthetic and how it influenced contemporary photography; and The New Landscape Photography will showcase artists using photography and post-photographic visual effects to express their thoughts on the role of mountains in society.

Mummies - American Museum of Natural History
Through January 07, 2018 - New York

For thousands of years, peoples around the world practiced mummification as a way of preserving and honoring their dead. Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. In Mummies, ancient remains from the Nile Valley of Africa and the Andes Mountains of South America will be on view, allowing visitors to connect with cultures from the distant past. Mummification, a more widespread practice than most think, was used not only for royal Egyptians but also for common people and even animals. The process was employed by cultures around the world. In the Chancay culture of Peru, mummifying deceased family members meant relatives could keep connected with their loved ones; some families even brought mummy bundles to festivals. Egyptians, on the other hand, created mummies to help individuals enter the afterlife, often encasing the mummies in elaborately painted sarcophagi. At Mummies, interactive touch tables let visitors virtually "unravel" or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within. Other parts of the exhibition showcase the latest isotopic and DNA testing being performed on mummies, and explain how these sophisticated analytical techniques are helping scientists discover important clues about long-vanished practices. Mummies was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

San Marco Quartet - Arts brookfield
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

San Marco Quartet layers all the actions of people and pigeons on Piazza San Marco in Venice into a pair of evolving images showing two views. The images are lit by movement; things that are not moving are invisible. Walking pigeons leave worm-like traces. Gathered people disappear through their shifting motions. Tour groups flow across the image like a river. The left side combines the activities into a very long exposed image that develops over several minutes. In the projection on the right, the past fades more quickly. The moving images are presented as two video projections mirrored at their point of meeting. They use the same material and with differences in how time is portrayed. They present a record of the temporary social architecture that is shaped by the permanent physical architecture of the piazz ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada.

New Permanent Exhibit: Titanosaur - The American Museum of Natural History
Through January 19, 2020 - Upper West Side

The museum adds another must-see exhibit opening on January 15, a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur Titanosaur that is part of a special year of dinosaur events, exhibitions, and digital offerings. Paleontologists have inferred that this dinosaur, a giant herbivore that belongs to a group known as titanosaurs, weighed in at around 77 tons—as much as 14 or 15 African elephants. In preparation for adding this colossal new exhibit, the museum closed the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center in September to remove the hall's current incumbent: a life-sized—but, by comparison, diminutive—fleshed-out model of a juvenile Barosaurus that has been on display since the completion of the fourth floor in June 1996. The new, much larger occupant will graze the gallery's approximately 19-foot-high ceilings and, at 122 feet (37.2 meters), is just a bit too long to fit completely into the space. Instead, its neck and head will extend out towards the elevator banks, welcoming visitors to the "dinosaur" floor.

Connected Worlds - New York Hall of Science
Through January 31, 2020 - Flushing Meadows, Queens

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) will open Connected Worlds, its exciting and groundbreaking new exhibition on environmental sustainability, on June 27, 2015. Presented in NYSCI's iconic Great Hall, Connected Worlds is a fully immersive, digitally rendered interactive experience where visitors are encouraged to explore the interconnectedness of different environments, learn about the importance of keeping systems in balance, and see how our individual and collective actions can have widespread impact. Through their gestures and movements, visitors interact with animated creatures, plants, trees and other objects, and see how human decisions affect the environment. "Connected Worlds reflects what NYSCI is all about – a playful hands-on activity, a focus on problem-solving, and deep engagement with a topic. Connected Worlds gives visitors confidence in their ability to effect change, and empowers them within a larger environment," said Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. "This leads to passionate learners – a hallmark of the NYSCI experience." Connected Worlds features gesture-based technologies that generate and project images onto seven massive screens. Six of the screens are more than 14 feet tall and one screen, which shows a digital waterfall, is 38 feet tall. The screens show six different, but interconnected, environments – desert, mountain valley, plains, reservoir, jungle and wetlands – each with their own unique trees, plants and creatures, but sharing common resources, such as water and weather patterns. Some of the animals travel across environments for breeding or to access food. A central reservoir, which is fed by the waterfall and supplies water to the six environments, is projected on the floor, covering approximately 2,300 square feet.

Picasso's Le Tricorne - New-York Historical Society
Through December 31, 2020 - Upper West Side

Now on display at the New-York Historical Society is a newly acquired and conserved Picasso in the exhibition Picasso's "Le Tricorne." It is the first work by Picasso, and one with great wall power and a New York history, to enter New-York Historical's collection. Pablo Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos or Le tricorne). The ballet and curtain were commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev for his avant-garde, Paris-based Ballets Russes, the most influential ballet company of the twentieth-century. The ballet was choreographed by Léonide Massine with music by the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. It premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London with sets, costume designs, and the monumental stage curtain created by Picasso. Picasso biographer John Richardson once called "Le Tricorne" the artist's "supreme theatrical achievement." The production, which was conceived by Diaghilev and Massine during a trip to Spain, was enhanced by its many Spanish collaborators, including Picasso who also designed the costumes and set for the ballet. Measuring roughly 20 feet square, the curtain depicts a scene with a bullring and celebratory spectators. Picasso painted it as an illusionistic window in a larger curtain that functioned as a backdrop setting the scene for the ballet. At some point before 1956 Diaghilev cut it from its larger context. For more than half a century the curtain, believed to be the largest Picasso painting in the United States, has hung in the hallway of the Four Seasons Restaurant, in the landmarked Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, on Park Avenue and Fifty-second Street in New York City. Vivendi, the company that once owned the Seagram Building, gave the Picasso curtain to the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2005 as a "Gift to the City." The show positions Picasso's curtain in a dialogue with other N-YHS objects, including paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work as well as to the traditions against which the revolutionary artist rebelled. Other thematic threads pivot around dance subjects and explore roughly contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors. Among the works included will be examples by William Adolphe Bouguereau, Will H. Bradley, Philippe de Champaigne, Jean-Léon Gérôme, Childe Hassam, Malvina Hoffman, Ricardo de Madrazo y Garreta, Elie Nadelman, Edward Penfield, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Adriaen van Utrecht.
