The Weeklings - Cutting Room
February 21, 2018 - New York

THE WEEKLINGS are the most unique band that celebrate the music of THE BEATLES in America today.

They channel this unique vision into their faithful renditions of classic Beatles material, into their originally arranged covers such as "Paperback Writer" and "Baby You're A Rich Man", and into the Beatles inspired power pop rock 'n roll that they compose and record. The band channels the spirit, humor, swagger, and bold creativity of the 60s; bringing The Beatles music to life, not throughcostumes and gimmicks, but through their own original edge, power, brilliant musicianship, and charming stage presence.

The friendships forged with Brazilian musicians during her musical travels course through her captivating new album Entre Amigos, which features a gorgeous array of new songs created with a far-flung cast of collaborators, including the celebrated Pernambuco frevo composer/bandleader Spok, rising Brazilian-American guitarist Ian Faquini, pianist/composer Jovino Santos Neto, and pianist Antonio Adolfo, a Brazilian jazz master who got his start at the center of Rio’s early 1960s bossa nova scene. Cressman’s Zinc Bar show will feature a trio of New York Brazilian friends- Vitor Gonçalves on piano and accordion, Flavio Lira on bass, and Vanderlei Pereira on drums. The show will also feature daughter Natalie Cressman, a bandleader in her own right, as well as a member of guitarist Trey Anastasio’s band, on trombone and voice.

George Burton Quintet - Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
February 21, 2018 - New York

With alto saxophonist, composer and arranger Allen Lowe; trumpeter Randy Sandke; tenor saxophonists James Brandon Lewis and Nicole Glover; trombonist Frank Lacy; guitarist and banjo player Ray Suhy; baritone saxophonist Lisa Parrot; pianist Lewis Porter; bassist Kevin Ray; drummer Carolyn Castellano; clarinetists Aaron Johnson and Paul Austerlitz; and tuba player Christopher Meeder This concert is the world premiere of a new project led by saxophonist, composer, and arranger Allen Lowe. A Love Supine: A Dixieland Love Supreme is an unconventional suite of music celebrating the breadth of John Coltrane's influence on the fundamental sound of jazz. Coltrane's restoration of modality, his stretching of tonal tolerance, and his acceptance of dissonance as a necessary component of group sound and improvisation had a transformative effect on jazz, and this program is Lowe's "act of atonement for not only failing to appreciate Coltrane sufficiently, but also for not initially understanding his complex relationship with modernism and American root sounds." The show will feature a wide range of contemporary musicians who, by the nature of their experiences and deep knowledge of jazz performance, challenge the very notion of narrow musical "schools" and show that a modernist in jazz is, by any other name, a complex sum of very diverse musical parts. A few examples of what to expect: the eponymous "A Love Supine," described by Lowe as a "Dixieland version of John Coltrane's A Love Supreme, a map of early jazz modernism and the hidden history of the mainstream avant-garde;" a Dixieland one-step composed on the notorious chord changes of Coltrane's "Giant Steps;" a ragtime piece dedicated to Joseph Lamb; a New Orleans-style funeral march; some "Ellington-esque" ballads; a piece of "Southern Dixie whimsy" reflecting on the Monroe Incident; and a sequel to Lowe's "March of the Vipers," originally recorded 25 years ago at The Knitting Factory. Not many musicians could bring a musical vision like this to life, but Lowe is sure to deliver, so catch this show while it's here for one night only! It's also worth noting that many people take issue with the term "Dixieland." Here's what Lowe has to say on the matter: "Dixieland is a dead music which we celebrate in all of its dormant glory. The contrapuntal wonders of New Orleans have been buried over the years in the sheen of revivalism, which has tended to substitute the expected for the mysterious. We hope to change this."

Bebe Miller Company & Susan Rethorst : the Making Room - New York Live Arts
February 21, 2018 - New York

THE MAKING ROOM NYC premiere The Making Room is an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process from start to premiere. Organized by Bebe Miller Company, the project brings together choreographers Bebe Miller and Susan Rethorst to generate a joint experience of the choreographic process. Audiences follows the artists’ engagement in each other’s processes—witnesses to their ideas and their alchemical connection, as well as materials gathered from the processes. Along with sharing their conversations, inspirations, and insights, they’ll both be showing some of their new work: Bebe Miller Company: In a Rhythm In a Rhythm is a suite of new dance works by Bebe Miller Company is based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, Choreographer Miller is looking at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Our tacit reading of the building blocks of situations is inherent in the culture it serves. Working with the premise that our willingness to decipher the unfamiliar cultivates shared understanding, the dances use texts as underlying maps of events and situations. Miller’s focus is on the “tell”—the subtle interactions of gesture, timing, focus and dynamics that are uniquely human, yet often illegible outside of familiar frames. We understand these bytes of kinetic information because we, as humans, move. Individual and cultural experience is a recognized presence in the studio during the creation of these works—we explore how overt or implicit the race/class/gender lens is, how it shifts and refracts. We embrace as well as suspend the implications of which men/women/raced/gendered individuals are conforming to as well as confounding expectations. We reflect on “who is available to do what; who is allowed to do what?” What arises between the dance artists—physically, psychologically—is brought forward as an integral part of the creative process. Susan Rethorst: Stealing from Myself Revisiting old work from the last 30 years, Rethorst draws on old bits and pieces to join new material in a new work for Gabrielle Revlock and Gregory Holt. The Making Room is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Wexner Center for the Arts, On the Boards, and NPN.

Leslie Mendelson - City Winery
February 21, 2018 - New York

Leslie Mendelson's Love & Murder is the singer/songwriter's first new album in eight years. A stirring work instilled with emotional depth that Glide Magazine declared "one of the best records of 2017," the effort is the long-awaited follow up to her Grammy Award-nominated debut, Swan Feathers. It's an apropos title, reflecting the dichotomy between the dark and light she encountered in those years between. Poised for stardom in 2009 with comparisons to Carole King and Rickie Lee Jones on the tip of tastemakers' lips, fate as it often does, had other plans. But perhaps this was actually to the benefit of her art. After losing a record and management deal and having her friend and producer Joel Dorn unexpectedly pass away, Mendelson recommitted to herself and slowly but surely penned the songs with her longtime co-writer Steve McEwan that would become Love & Murder. Produced by Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams), Love & Murder is a sparse, raw collection of ten folk songs. Opening with "Jericho," a haunting number that sets the tone for what's to come, it makes clear that the album lies more within darker spaces that artists like Sharon Van Etten, Lana Del Rey and Dusty Springfield inhabit. Songs like "Murder Me," "Coney Island," and "Chasing the Thrill" find Leslie exploring loss in ways that feel personal and metaphorical, where the stories within are multifaceted. She also recorded three covers: the classic-country infused "Cry, Cry Darlin'," a take on Bob Dylan's classic "Just Like a Woman," played on the ukulele, and a duet with The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir on Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou." In fact, Mendelson was unwittingly adopted by the West Coast jam scene after Weir heard her take on "Friend of the Devil" and recruited her to perform with him.

Danielle Nicole - Iridium
February 21, 2018 - New York

A 2014 Blues Music Award winner, there's not a time in her life that singer/bassist/songwriter Danielle Nicole (born Danielle Nicole Schnebelen) doesn't remember loving to perform. As a child, she would sing for her family at holidays and took tap, jazz and ballet lessons for many years competing in numerous events. Danielle also took band in middle school, playing the tenor saxophone and enjoying it quite a bit. Unfortunately, she was forced to quit when the family moved to Kansas City and the new school did not offer band. Danielle comes from generations of singers. Her grandmother, Evelyn Skinner, was a big band singer. Danielle's mother, Lisa Swedlund, taught her everything she knew while growing up and listening to all different kinds of music from the Everly Brothers to the B-52s. It wasn't until she was 12 that Danielle took to the stage for the first time singing, Koko Taylor's "Never Trust a Man" at a Blues for Schools program that her parents were playing at Englewood Elementary. From then on, she knew music would be her passion for the rest of her life. Danielle began singing in coffeehouses and at open mic events at age 14, jamming with her parents whenever she could at clubs that would allow minors. At 16, she began singing lead in her father's band, Little Eva and the Works – until he became too sick to play. In March of 1999, she started her own band, Fresh Brew, with Kansas City music veterans Steve Gronemeyer, Steve Hicks, Chuck Payne and Terry Roney. They performed for four years and even represented Kansas City in the International Blues Challenge. It was during this time that Danielle and her brothers Nick and Kris began talking about a family band that would eventually become Trampled Under Foot. Not only did she and Kris have to move to Philadelphia (where Nick was living), but she would have to learn the bass guitar to keep it a family band. It took a few years of lessons and saving money before that could become reality. After several acclaimed self-released albums, Trampled Under Foot released Badlands on July 9, 2013 on Telarc, a division of Concord Music Group. Toughened by years of nonstop roadwork, Badlands revealed a musical sophistication well beyond the band's years. On Badlands, the band worked with veteran producer Tony Braunagel at his Ultratone Studios in California. The drummer in the Phantom Blues Band, Braunagel played some percussion on the album and recruited veteran keyboardist Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Bonnie Raitt, Etta James) to play keys. Johnny Lee Schell, who also recorded the album, added acoustic guitar to one track and John Porter mixed the final results at Independent Street Studios in New Orleans.

Combining their shared passions for music and creativity, the trio began playing local shows with an elaborate light show to accent their haunting tones and give audiences unique and intense live experiences.

Described as having "the bombastic theatricality of Muse with the vastness of Russian Circles gently mixed with the ferocity of Helms Alee" (Bloody Disgusting), the band gained a passionate following of supporters as they connected with audiences across the country. Eventually, inAeona caught the eye of Prosthetic Records, who asked the band appear on a 2014 label showcase alongside Junius and So Hideous.

San Marco Quartet - 5 Manhattan West
Through February 21, 2018 - New York

Video Installation by David Rokeby; 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 piazza. Curated by Pari Nadimi. ABOUT DAVID ROKEBY David Rokeby is an installation artist based in Toronto, Canada. He has been creating and exhibiting since 1982.

Ec: Kino-Eye - Anthology Film Archives
February 21, 2018 - New York

"What do Jean-Luc Godard, Jean Rouch, Peter Kubelka, Stan Brakhage, Allen Funt, and Santiago Alvarez have in common? All of them were anticipated, if not directly influenced, by the genius of Dziga Vertov, one of the half-dozen most important personalities in the history of cinema, and a key figure in 20th century culture as a whole." –J. Hoberman, VILLAGE VOICE "KINOGLAZ is a didactic work, centered on episodes which articulate major preoccupations of the young Soviet regime: it deals with the manufacture and distribution of bread,…the processing and distribution of meat, celebrates the constructions of youth camps and discusses the problem of alcoholism. It introduces Vertov's formal adoption of the articulation of filmmaking technique as his subject. It begins, as well, to suggest what we may understand by 'the negative of time' as a key 'to the Communist decoding of reality.' Looking for 'the negative of time,' we find it in the use of reverse motion as analytic strategy." –Annette Michelson, "From Magician to Epistemologist"

The Kennedy Administration - Club Groove NYC
February 21, 2018 - New York

Some lead vocalists are so captivating, you wonder who's more dazzled when they sing: the adoring fans, or the bandmates who count themselves as blessed as the crowd to be in the presence of such an engaging talent. Watch any live performance by theKennedy Administration, with this quartet's singular namesake at the microphone, and you'll see right away that the rapt audience for Kennedy includes the very skilled, well-traveled players on stage. Kennedy's joy is contagious.It's a testament to her abilities as a musician, and her irresistible presence, that Ondrej Pivec on keyboards, Dmitry Gorodetsky on bass and Nathaniel Townsley on drums were drawn to her and motivated to also help bring the original compositions of this emerging young singer-songwriter to life. Mind you, these guys do not impress easily. Kennedy's cabinet of three has more high-level, executive experience in jazz, r&b, hip-hop and pop than you'll encounter in bands boasting double the number of personnel or claiming twice as many years in music. With credits ranging from Stevie Wonder to Lauryn Hill, and a roster of acclaimed "musician's musicians" in between, the Kennedy Administration's instrumental trio has seen, heard and played a lot. Motor City native Kennedy, who made her way to New York, has carved out her own formidable body of work, thanks to a vocal style that is inflected with great influences — think Ella Fitzgerald, Sade, Anita Baker, even a dash of Luther Vandross — but has its own timbre and particular mix of playfulness and seductive poise.In a few short years since coming east, in one of the world's most competitive entertainment capitals, Kennedy has amassed gigs and collaborations with Christina Aguilera, Kenny Lattimore, Monifah and Cheryl Pepsi-Riley, to name a few. Forging a sound and identity for itself, the Kennedy Administration is creating sensory, soulful modern jazz with elements of r&b, hip-hop and pop judiciously applied. Led by an inspirational singer — who takes her role seriously and carries it with graceful good humor — this particular Kennedy Administration is ushering in a brand new "Great Society" of sweet music.

Riley Etheridge Jr. - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
February 21, 2018 - New York

Riley Etheridge Jr. is a New York City based singer/songwriter with deep roots in Americana music. After growing up in a musical family in Columbia, S.C., he spent 20 years performing and recording in the musical gumbo of South Louisiana, and after a decade long hiatus his move to New York has inspired a collection of new original material entitled "Things I Used to Know". The album, which will be released in January of 2010, represents a reunion of all- star South Louisiana musicians and friends who have recorded together for over 25 years. Recorded in New Orleans in July of 2009, the rhythm section included Baton Rouge bassist David Ellis, Guitarist Shane Theriot (Neville Brothers/Boz Scaggs) drummer Doug Belote (Jerry Douglas/Sonny Landreth) and New Orleans jazz pianist and composer Larry Sieberth. The basic tracks then traveled to Nashville TN where Louisiana native and producer Wendell Tilley added guitars and enlisted Americana/country rock legends such as Dan Dugmore (James Taylor/Linda Ronstadt) and Mickey Rapheal (Willie Nelson) to add their distinctive contributions. The resulting album has been described by one writer as an "elegiac, contemplative collection of sad, funny, and ultimately redemptive alternative country".

Jenna Nicholls - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
February 21, 2018 - New York

Tyler Childers - The Bowery Ballroom
February 21, 2018 - New York

Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks and legendary moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, Kentucky, populate the 10 songs in his formidable debut, Purgatory, an album that's simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. The album, co-produced by Grammy Award winners Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, is a semiautobiographical sketch of Childers' growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable. Purgatory is a chiaroscuro painting with darkness framing light in high relief. There's catharsis and redemption. Sin and temptation. Murder and deceit. Demons and angels. Moonshine and cocaine. So much moonshine and cocaine. All played out on the large, colorful canvas of Eastern Kentucky. Childers had been searching for a certain sound for his debut album for years as he honed his craft, and was finding it elusive when his friend, drummer Miles Miller, introduced him to Simpson, the Grammy Award-winning musician and fellow Kentuckian. Childers sent Simpson a group of his songs, then went to visit him in Nashville. "And he said, 'There's this sound. I know what you're trying to get at, the mountain sound,'" Childers recalled. "'So I asked, 'What are you doing?'" Intrigued, Simpson enlisted the aid of Ferguson, the Grammy Award winning sound engineer. They assembled a band that included multi-instrumentalists Stuart Duncan, Michael J. Henderson and Russ Pahl, bassist Michael Bub and Miller on drums, of course, and helped Childers make a debut album of consequence that announces an authentic new voice. "I was writing an album about being in the mountains," Childers said. "I wanted it to have that gritty mountain sound. But at the same time, I wanted a more modern version of it that a younger generation can listen to—the people I grew up with, something I'd want to listen to."

Inka Essenhigh - The Drawing Center
February 21, 2018 - Soho

As part of its ongoing series of commissions for the Stairwell, The Drawing Center has asked New York artist Inka Essenhigh to create a site-specific wall drawing. Essenhigh's installation will be the third in the series, following Gary Simmons's Ghost Reels (2016–18) and Abdelkader Benchamma's Dark Matter (2015–16). An artist with appetites ranging from Hokusai to Surrealism and Byzantine icons to graphic novels, Inka Essenhigh is known for her hallucinatory scenes that weave together the drama of everyday life with quasi-menacing, sci-fi themes. For her installation at The Drawing Center, Essenhigh will create a large-scale drawing of a meandering skyline, a reference to the museum's downtown space. Essenhigh's otherworldly installation will lead viewers through a warped SoHo, replete with phantom hallways and Escher-like staircases.

Y&T - BB King Blues Club & Grill
February 21, 2018 - New York

Before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America. When the band formed in the early 1970s, little did they know they would set the standard for hard rock bands that trailed. Many of the biggest acts of the '80s became popular opening for headliners Y&T--and cut their teeth on the band, as evidenced by the Y&T mentions in tell-all books by acts such as Metallica and Motley Crue. Born in Oakland, California, Y&T is one of the San Francisco Bay Area's own innovators of the hard rock sound. Whether performing to a festival crowd of fifty-thousand or in an intimate nightclub, Y&T's high-energy set and passionate performances still captivate legions of fans around the globe, proving Y&T's music timeless.

The Whole Poem with Neil Shepard - Poets House
February 21, 2018 - New York

From first draft to final draft, we require strategies for seeing the whole poem, both its full potential for content and its most satisfying form. We require, as Charles Olson said, the intense perception of the first draft—to "see" not only the spark but all of the light that makes a poem glow. Then we need to "re-see" the poem, practicing the kind of deep revision that leads us to reconsider everything from word choice and vivid image to metaphoric subtext, grammatical pattern, and inner music of the poem. We'll use poems from such poets as Anne Carson, C. D. Wright, Yusuf Komunyakaa, Sharon Olds, Marilyn Nelson, Mark Doty, Rigoberto González, Ada Limón, Tyehimba Jess, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Arthur Sze, Reginald Shepherd, Tony Hoagland, Jane Hirshfield, Khaled Mattawa, and Naomi Shihab Nye to examine specific technical issues, but we'll use your own poems as the focus and force of workshop discussion. In addition, we'll consider writing exercises that might steer you toward new strategies and discoveries in making a poem.

Dominique Morisseau's 'Detroit '67' - Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts
February 21, 2018 - Brooklyn

Detroit '67 is about big issues: race, home, Motown, family and a city under siege. In the tradition of A Raisin in the Sun and The Piano Lesson, Morisseau's drama is at its core about two siblings — Chelle and Lank — clashing over the right to maintain family stability or reach for a dream of economic progress. When a white, female stranger enters their lives, the lines of the legacy they're both fighting to protect become blurred. Set against the explosive racial tensions of the 1967 Detroit riots, which occurred over the course of five days, Morisseau might be letting us know that, despite it all, the music keeps us together.

Flying University: The Dark Side of Science - Caveat
February 21, 2018 - Manhattan

Featuring Steph Yin, Alexis Takahashi, Andrea Coleman, and Marie Cruz Soto Flying University is a re-education in hidden histories. This month, join Steph Yin and Alexis Takahashi as they tackle Sciencewashing: How Science and the Pursuit of Knowledge Gentrify Cities. Flying University is named after the underground university in Russian-occupied Poland that taught subjects banned by the state-run schools. This rebel organization also educated women, who were barred from attending the official university, including Marie Curie. In that spirit, each Flying University talk highlights a piece of history that has been "conveniently forgotten." Let's set the record straight. Tonight's performance features Steph Yin and Alexis Takahashi on Sciencewashing: How Science and the Pursuit of Knowledge Gentrify Cities, with opening talks from Andrea Coleman (The Treatment of Black Women in Science) and Marie Cruz Soto (Birthing Practices, Medicalization and Colonialism in Puerto Rico). There's greenwashing, pinkwashing and artwashing ... is sciencewashing a thing too? Ideals like "progress" and the "quest for knowledge" are often used to justify science-driven development. But in reality not everybody benefits equally -- and some are disproportionately harmed -- in the pursuit of these abstract goals. Drawing from examples in New York, Los Angeles and Berlin, this talk will examine who wins and who loses when cities decide to embrace development and economic growth driven by science, research and tech. Steph Yin is a multimedia science journalist and regular contributor to The New York Times.

Amber Mark - Rough Trade NYC
February 21, 2018 - Brooklyn

Amber Mark "Anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance" read the pamphlet Amber Marks was handed by the hospice nurse, citing the five main steps of grief. But it was different for Amber as she sat by her mother's bed, watching as she passed away. "Some of those emotions were there, but some weren't, and not in the same order," she explains. Afterwards, she began monitoring the way she grieved, how it ebbed and flowed like a tumultuous ocean, and slowly constructed the stages that outlined her own personal experience of loss. "Regret, anger, isolation, sadness, questioning and overcoming… Those were my stages. And without realising it, I began writing music about them. It was like therapy." Amber grew up anywhere and everywhere. Her mother was an artist, so they regularly journeyed around the world, oscillating between Miami and New York, spending time in India, and then taking up residence in Berlin. When Amber was just ??? years old, they settled in a monastery near Darjeeling, where her mother studied the art of thangka painting, constantly blessing their home with vibrant colour and relentless creativity. "I'm very nostalgic of those times, and I think it made me absorb so much from different cultures," explains Amber, "I like to bring it out in my music as much as I can. India was a huge influence." The artwork for her debut self-written and self-produced EP, 3:33 AM – a deeply moving and meditative platter of earthly experimental pop inspired by those stages of grief - is framed by tiger orange paint. A celebratory explosion of vibrance, taken from a painting by her mother, it symbolises her mother's creative energy continuing through Amber's music. Her EP was created in stolen nocturnal moments. Living in a cramped New York apartment with her godparents, she had to wait until they went to bed each night before she could begin. And then she'd drift into a foggy juju of beatmaking and lyric writing, barely looking up from her screen until sunrise. "Space", with its powerful vocals, choppy percussion and confessional lyrics, communicates this need to create in isolation. "The quietest was when I felt the most alone. For two weeks straight I would be sitting at my computer until 8am in the morning. Any time I would get out of the zone, I would check the clock and I always remember it being 3.33am. It freaked me out, but I liked it, so I named the EP after it." With the stages of grief in mind, the EP began to form: a kaleidoscopic mix of the music she listened to as a child – jazz, soul, Indian classical and hip-hop – with sometimes up and sometimes downtempo electronica. "Monsoon" captures her stage of sadness, and with its sitar sounds, pouring rain, and heart-wrenching lyrics it feels like voyeuristically wandering through Amber's own dream-like memories of her mother and India. "Lose My Cool" is a solemn and introspective club track about bottling up anger until it all comes firing out. But the EP is also uplifting – particularly the thumping final track "Way Back". "Losing someone special never really gets easier," explains Amber, "but I didn't want it to just be this sad depressing EP. I wanted it to uplift people who had gone through it, and make them feel motivated by the idea that it is something you can get through." When Amber uploaded her first song, "Space", to Soundcloud back in January 2016, she wasn't expecting anything to happen. "I just wanted to put it out there," she smiles. Within a matter of months, the song was picked up by Zane Lowe, landing on the iTunes homepage alongside Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Future, and pushing a shocked and unsigned Amber Mark up to 35 in Spotify's 'Global Viral Chart'. Now with the release of 3:33 AM - she's setting out to prove that was no fluke.

James Hunter (Album Release) - City Winery
February 21, 2018 - New York

It's been 10 years since the Englishman James Hunter burst onto the scene with his U.S. debut People Gonna Talk (GO/Rounder 2006), topping the Billboard Blues chart, earning a Grammy-nomination, and attracting universal acclaim from critics and his fans -- including Van Morrison, Sharon Jones, and Allen Toussaint. Over the last decade, he's toured extensively around the world on the club, theatre, and festival circuits, steadily growing a dedicated audience comprised of hardened gig-goers, old-school baby boomers, and young hipsters alike. His follow-ups The Hard Way and Minute By Minute (GO/Fantasy), further cemented Hunter's reputation as a soul powerhouse, heralded for his talents both as a live performer and perhaps even more so as a songwriter, with The New Yorker describing his "tight, taut compositions" as "rooted in American soul music without being bound to it." Now Hunter is back with his fourth album, Hold On! marking his debut on Daptone Records, America's premier soul imprint and Hunter's second collaboration with famed producer Gabriel Roth aka Bosco Mann. It also marks a cumulative and consecutive total of 48 original songs written exclusively by Hunter, without resorting to a single covered recording. At age 53, Hunter feels he has finally found his home for making music. "The great thing about working with Gabe is that he can get our tunes on tape exactly the way I heard them in my head when I was writing them," explained Hunter. "It's a rare thing when a producer knows what you're going for before you've told him. It's good to be associated with a record company that 'gets' us."

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 17th 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!

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 piazza.

Bebe Miller Company & Susan Rethorst : the Making Room - New York Live Arts
February 21, 2018 - New York

THE MAKING ROOM NYC premiere The Making Room is an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process from start to premiere. Organized by Bebe Miller Company, the project brings together choreographers Bebe Miller and Susan Rethorst to generate a joint experience of the choreographic process. Audiences follows the artists’ engagement in each other’s processes—witnesses to their ideas and their alchemical connection, as well as materials gathered from the processes. Along with sharing their conversations, inspirations, and insights, they’ll both be showing some of their new work: Bebe Miller Company: In a Rhythm In a Rhythm is a suite of new dance works by Bebe Miller Company is based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, Choreographer Miller is looking at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Our tacit reading of the building blocks of situations is inherent in the culture it serves. Working with the premise that our willingness to decipher the unfamiliar cultivates shared understanding, the dances use texts as underlying maps of events and situations. Miller’s focus is on the “tell”—the subtle interactions of gesture, timing, focus and dynamics that are uniquely human, yet often illegible outside of familiar frames. We understand these bytes of kinetic information because we, as humans, move. Individual and cultural experience is a recognized presence in the studio during the creation of these works—we explore how overt or implicit the race/class/gender lens is, how it shifts and refracts. We embrace as well as suspend the implications of which men/women/raced/gendered individuals are conforming to as well as confounding expectations. We reflect on “who is available to do what; who is allowed to do what?” What arises between the dance artists—physically, psychologically—is brought forward as an integral part of the creative process. Susan Rethorst: Stealing from Myself Revisiting old work from the last 30 years, Rethorst draws on old bits and pieces to join new material in a new work for Gabrielle Revlock and Gregory Holt. The Making Room is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Wexner Center for the Arts, On the Boards, and NPN.

February 22, 2018 - West Village

When David Cook moved to Nashville in 2012, the expectation was that this singer-songwriter from the Heartland would emphasize the rootsy side of his sensibility, and sure enough, he had immediate success co-writing country tunes, including the Top-20 single "Kiss You Tonight" for David Nail in 2014. But new album Digital Vein is something else entirely, with Cook's powerful voice and dynamic guitar work knifing through vibrant soundscapes that boldly juxtapose man-made grooves and electronic textures. "Working in Nashville opened me up creatively to trying different things," Cook explains. "Writing for country acts has been freeing in the sense that I can bring out that side of my creativity, and it brought some freshness to the other side of what I like to do. So I ran with it, going into the creative process with the blinders off. I just wanted to try things, and there was no formula. Honestly, I didn't even know if I was gonna make another record; I decided to just write and have fun and see what happens." As an experiment, Cook applied what he'd learned from working with Music City craftsmen in that time-honored narrative vein to the material he was writing for his own use. "It was fun and a new challenge to try to attack my own songwriting in that way," he begins, then says with a laugh, "In hindsight, what the hell was I thinking trying to take this on? But it ended up being an amazing process, and it led to a record that I'd put up there with my prouder moments."

Bebe Miller Company & Susan Rethorst : the Making Room - New York Live Arts
February 22, 2018 - New York

THE MAKING ROOM NYC premiere The Making Room is an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process from start to premiere. Organized by Bebe Miller Company, the project brings together choreographers Bebe Miller and Susan Rethorst to generate a joint experience of the choreographic process. Audiences follows the artists’ engagement in each other’s processes—witnesses to their ideas and their alchemical connection, as well as materials gathered from the processes. Along with sharing their conversations, inspirations, and insights, they’ll both be showing some of their new work: Bebe Miller Company: In a Rhythm In a Rhythm is a suite of new dance works by Bebe Miller Company is based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, Choreographer Miller is looking at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Our tacit reading of the building blocks of situations is inherent in the culture it serves. Working with the premise that our willingness to decipher the unfamiliar cultivates shared understanding, the dances use texts as underlying maps of events and situations. Miller’s focus is on the “tell”—the subtle interactions of gesture, timing, focus and dynamics that are uniquely human, yet often illegible outside of familiar frames. We understand these bytes of kinetic information because we, as humans, move. Individual and cultural experience is a recognized presence in the studio during the creation of these works—we explore how overt or implicit the race/class/gender lens is, how it shifts and refracts. We embrace as well as suspend the implications of which men/women/raced/gendered individuals are conforming to as well as confounding expectations. We reflect on “who is available to do what; who is allowed to do what?” What arises between the dance artists—physically, psychologically—is brought forward as an integral part of the creative process. Susan Rethorst: Stealing from Myself Revisiting old work from the last 30 years, Rethorst draws on old bits and pieces to join new material in a new work for Gabrielle Revlock and Gregory Holt. The Making Room is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Wexner Center for the Arts, On the Boards, and NPN.

WWI CENTENNIAL: WAR AND PEACE - SUNY Fredonia, Reed Library Japanese Garden
February 22, 2018 - Fredonia

This two-day project will bring together Afghanistan and Iraq veterans in Fredonia, humanities scholars who specialize in war literature, history of WWI, conflict and peace studies and the general public at large during the WWI Centennial (2018) in order to discuss what it means to end a war and to transition into peace. In an age where, as Harold Koh argues, there is no foreseeable strategy to impose temporal or geographic limits on America's "forever wars," how do we discourse on ending wars and peace making? What are some parallels and differences between America's wars today and its role in WWI? These fundamental questions will guide both the readings and the roundtable discussion. This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.

February 22, 2018 - Upper East Side

Next up in our New York's Future in a Changing Climate series, we consider water -- our city's most essential yet vulnerable natural asset. What can New York City do to protect its drinking water supply and its recreational waters in the coming decades? How is that supply affected by climate change, and what must we do to adapt? Join us for a deep dive into NYC's complex water systems, which powerfully illustrate our city's dependency on - and symbiotic relationship to - its larger regional environment and economy. Veteran New York Times reporter Jim Dwyer moderates a conversation with environmental artist Stacy Levy; Al Appleton, former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection; Paul Gallay, President of Riverkeeper; and Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance. Afterwards, visit the Future City Lab and join us for a drink in the Rotunda, where Valerie Green/Dance Entropy will perform an excerpt from "Impermanent Landscape," an immersive dance piece that captures the transient nature of living in an ever-changing urban environment. Speak with representatives from Earth Day Initiative to find out how you can green your lifestyle through simple, impactful changes. About the Speakers: Al Appleton is an international environmental and infrastructure consultant, Senior Fellow at The Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design, and Adjunct Associate Professor at The Cooper Union. Previously, Appleton served as Commissioner of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Director of the New York City Water and Sewer system. Eddie Bautista is the Executive Director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance. Previous to this role, Bautista was the Director of the Mayor's Office of City Legislative Affairs. Bautista is also a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture's Graduate Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development. Jim Dwyer (moderator) has spent most of his professional life covering the city as a reporter, columnist and author. He joined the Times in 2001 and has written the "About New York" column since 2007. The winner of the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for commentary and a co-recipient of the 1992 Pulitzer for breaking news, Dwyer is also the author or co-author of six books. Paul Gallay is the President of Riverkeeper, working to protect the Hudson River and the drinking water supplies for nine million New Yorkers. An attorney and educator, Gallay has dedicated himself to the environmental movement since 1987. In 1990, Gallay began a ten-year stint at New York's Department of Environmental Conservation, where he brought hundreds of corporate and government polluters to justice. Stacy Levy collaborates directly with natural processes like tides, erosion, plant growth, wind direction and rain. She creates large-scale sculpture installations to show the presence of nature in the city. Her projects often float on urban rivers and lakes, or are embedded into parking lots and streets. Many of her recent projects utilize storm water runoff, to make rainwater an asset to the site. Visit her website here. About the Performers: Valerie Green/Dance Entropy: Dance Entropy is a New York City-based modern dance company founded in 1998 that performs in NYC, and tours and teaches both domestically and abroad. Dance Entropy supports the vision of Artistic Director Valerie Green, who creates stage and site-specific work. A significant part of the company's mission is to use creation, performance, and education in locations and communities where the content of the work will have the greatest impact. Dance Entropy abstracts the potential chaos of the body and creates order through expressive movement reflecting the world within which we live. The word "entropy" refers to the tendency towards disorder in a social system and chaos in motion. Dance Entropy will be performing an excerpt from "Impermanent Landscape," an immersive dance performance that captures the transient nature of living in an ever-changing urban environment. Impermanent Landscape is performed in the round in non-traditional locations, responding each time to the specific nature of the space. Green articulates the energy and architecture of the city in each innovative performance. $25 for adults | $20 for seniors, students, and educators (with ID) | $15 for Museum Members.

Tangiers Blues Band - Iridium
February 22, 2018 - New York

The Tangiers Blues Band was formed in 1998 after guitarist Chris Scianni (Dangerman, Echobrain with Jason Newsted) and drummer Dave Borla (Dangerman, Echobrain) met photographer/harmonica player Danny Clinch and discovered their mutual love for blues music. The first Tangiers Blues Band jam session took place on Thanksgiving night that year with other musicians and friends, including Huey from the Fun Lovin' Criminals, King from Cooley High, Mick Jones from Foreigner and tennis player/guitarist John McEnroe. The original line-up was formed after that with Chris (guitar), Dave Borla (drums), Danny (harmonica), Huey (lap steel), King (vox and guitar) adding their long time friends Dave Sellar (bass) from Darla Hood and Peter Levin (keys) who had played in various bands in New York City and currently tours with Gregg Allman. The TBB line-up changes from show to show, with a deep rotation of musicians they have known and jammed with for many years, and in many different configurations. In addition, they have many "special guests" who will sit in with them for a night when they are around including G-Love, Phil Lesh, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Charlie Giordano (Bruce Springsteen) and Chris' father, Joseph Scianni. The line-up on the TBB studio recordings consists of Chris, Danny, Pete, King and Dave Sellars with Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams and The Cardinals) on lap and pedal steel guitars and Mo Roberts (Shemeka Copeland) on drums. The recording was done in one day at Moon Palace Studios, mixed and produced by Tim Latham (Lou Reed, Tribe Called Quest) a long time friend of all the guys. In the early days, The TBB had a weekly slot at Lot 61 (Amy Sacco's club in N.Y.C) where they started experimenting with their set list. They soon realized that by "down-dating" current hits and reworking non-traditional blues songs, they could appeal to an audience that was not familiar with the blues, while throwing in "up-dated" versions of blues standards and originals to appeal to blues enthusiasts. On any given night, the TBB can play a set including music by Lady Gaga, Elvis Costello and the Clash that morph into blues classics performed by Junior Wells, Muddy Waters and Albert King. The band has performed their eclectic set of blues from clubs in NYC like The Iridium, Joe's Pub and The McKittrick Hotel to the stages at Bonnaroo, opening for Gregg Allman and playing at Presevation Hall during Jazz Fest in New Orleans and Voodoo Fest. Some of the musicians that have joined the band on stage have included Dave Grohl, Tom Morello, Perry Farrell, Phil Lesh, Mike McCready, Lars Ulrich, members of the Dave Matthews Band and My Morning Jacket, Donald Fagen and Cage The Elephant.

[PORTO] - Women's Project Theater
Through February 22, 2018 - New York

Now Extended Through March 4 Only! Off-Broadway Premiere a co-production with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges by Kate Benson directed by Lee Sunday Evans with Noel Joseph Allain, Kate Benson, Ugo Chukwu, Jorge Cordova, Leah Karpel, and Julia Sirna-Frest "A stealthily ferocious, comfortingly hopeful, very funny new play. An exhortation to get out of your head and live, in thoughtful pursuit of joy." –The New York Times "Laugh-out-loud hilarious." –New York Magazine "Hugely worth seeing." Four Stars! A Critics Pick! –Time Out New York "Magical, mischievous, and just plan hilarious." –Theatermania A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She's a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender–a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?). Her friends, her wine, and her artisanal snacks are there; her doubts about being a Modern Woman are put on snooze. A handsome stranger walks in and orders something special. Disruption ensues: an upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it's made? WP Theater teams up with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges to present the Off-Broadway debut of the sold-out hit [PORTO] by Kate Benson and directed by WP Theater Lab Alum Lee Sunday Evans, whose last collaboration, the Obie Award-winning A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes, was a smash success at WP in 2015. [PORTO] was initially produced by WP Theater Lab Alum Rachel Karpf, John Del Gaudio and The Bushwick Starr, where it received its world premiere in their 2016-17 Season.

Spaces of Action: Designing and Using the Public Realm for Change - Center for Architecture
February 22, 2018 - Manhattan

Architecture engages global politics to realize the buildings, infrastructures, and public spaces that transform our urban environments. In the day-to-day conventions of practice, this engagement is both highly structured, as with zoning or regulatory changes, and more informal, as with in public consensus-building around advancing projects. However, there are also a broad range of ways in which design practices directly participate in advocacy to actualize innovative solutions, including providing affordable places to live, creating inclusive public spaces, shaping safer and healthier environments, conserving and reusing historic structures, and seeking race and gender parity. To effect change in these areas, practices advocate using innovative tools as well, participating more directly in fabrication and construction, publishing and disseminating ideas, teaching in new ways, and using online social networks for organization and direct action. This year, the AIANY Global Dialogues Committee will look at how architects and designers are taking action and how this action is positively expanding our understanding of the space of design practice.

Pat McGee Band w/ Jason Adamo - City Winery
February 22, 2018 - New York

"I never expected any of these legends to say yes, but I figured it was worth a shot," says PAT MCGEE about his star-studded new self-titled album. "If nothing else, I wanted them to know that I felt they would have been the perfect band for these songs. I have never been a guy that asked for favors or perks in this business, but on this project I definitely swung for the fences and thought to myself, 'Why not? The worst they can say is 'no'." Fortunately, the iconic players he had hoped to work with gave him a resounding, "Yes!" The dream team McGee assembled includes musical legends Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, Waddy Wachtel, Danny Kortchmar, and Jeff Pevar (nicknamed "The Section"). Other notable musicians such as Little Feat's Paul Barrere, Blues Traveler's John Popper, Train's Pat Monahan, Punchbrother's Gabe Witcher as well as Pat McGee's own band contributed to the album's sound. Recorded in Los Angeles in 2014, Pat McGee was influenced by the classic albums of the 1970s that were spun in his childhood home."I was at a friend's house, listening to what I thought was someone's playlist on an iPod. When I realized they were spinning full albums on vinyl, I was blown away. The very next day, I decided to buy a record player and picked up the ten records that lit the fire in me to start playing music, including seminal records by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash." Pat explains. Once McGee had written enough material for an album, he began to wonder what would happen if he reached out to the musicians who helped to shape his ear. An impossible task, he thought, but he decided to throw caution to the wind and go for it. One by one, the pieces started to fit together and each of them accepted his offer. From the guitar intro of opening track "Bad Idea," the natural connection between the players was obvious, sounding much more like a band who had been playing together for decades instead of being assembled for just one record. In lieu of the modern process of painstakingly tracking each individual instrument, the band jammed. "I would show them my song idea and they would ask to hear the meaning of the lyric, and 10 minutes later, we had a take on tape," he says, still in awe of that process. "We never tracked more than two or three takes before moving onto the next song. In all of these moments, I felt like I was witnessing the creation of an iconic classic rock guitar moment, drum part or bass line– it was happening right before my very eyes. And the fact that these guys were making it happen on songs that I wrote is just still so unbelievable to me."

Pianos Become The Teeth Praise Sainthood Reps - Saint Vitus
February 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

Pianos Become The Teeth have never been the kind of band who are easy to distill into a simple soundbite and that's more evident than ever on the band's fourth full-length Wait For Love, an album that sees the Baltimore-based act reconciling their aggressive past with the atmospheric turns of 2014's Keep You. The result is a collection of songs that eschews stylistic traps in order to focus on songwriting and feels like a full-realization of what the band have only hinted at in the past. The players—vocalist Kyle Durfey, guitarists Mike York and Chad McDonald, bassist Zac Sewell and drummer David Haik—may be the same this time around but their lives have continued to unravel and that journey lies at the emotional core of Wait For Love, which is a creative collaboration in the truest sense of the term. "For Wait For Love my goal was just to write really interesting songs that pushed us forward as a band and allowed us to do something different than we had ever done in the past," York explains. In order to get out of their comfort zone, the group isolated themselves in a cabin on the Eastern Shore of Maryland for extended writing excursions and ended up with a windfall of 30 songs by the time they entered the studio. Although Durfey—whose wife had recently had a child—was absent at some of these sessions, ultimately that event allowed the vocalist to approach Wait For Love from a different perspective. "I had so much more time to sit and ponder these songs and how I wanted to approach them," he recalls. "I think that changed by approach to vocals because it wasn't this immediate thing, it was more thought out."

Mary Norris: Confessions of a Comma Queen - 92Y
February 22, 2018 - Upper East Side

There is always something to learn about language. In an age when everyone is a writer, and so much comes to us unfiltered, in the form of tweets and texts and blogs, do we celebrate or do we cringe? Is it necessary to correct people who say "him and I"? Should we skulk around like vigilantes, fixing mistakes on signs by night? An editor's job is to help writers say precisely what they mean. What is an off-duty editor to do? Mary Norris spent 35 years as a copy editor at The New Yorker, experience that she drew on for her book Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen (W. W. Norton, 2015), a New York Times bestseller.

Invisible Dialogues and Invented Languages - American Folk Art Museum
February 22, 2018 - New York

In conjunction with the exhibition Vestiges & Verse: Notes from the Newfangled Epic, this discussion will examine self-taught artists who use coded or invented languages in their work or who identify as mediums through which their art is created. Artists include Agatha Wojciechowsky, Paul Laffoley, Jean Perdrizet, Melvin Edward Nelson, A.G. Rizzoli, and Carlo Keshishian. Exploring the relationship between language and visual expression, it seeks to uncover the mechanisms through which seemingly indecipherable words, letters, symbols, and icons communicate meaning. The discussion will feature presentations by exhibition curator Valérie Rousseau, art historian Susan Aberth, and linguist Sarah Higley. Dr. Susan Aberth is an associate professor of art history at Bard College, specializing in Latin American surrealism. She holds a BA from the University of California, Los Angeles; an MA from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University; and a PhD from The Graduate Center, City University of New York. She is the author of Leonora Carrington: Surrealism, Alchemy, and Art (Lund Humphries, London and Turner, Madrid, 2004), and has published essays in Leonora Carrington and the International Avant-Garde (Manchester University 2017), Surrealism, Occultism and Politics: In Search of the Marvelous (Routledge, 2017), Unpacking: The Marciano Collection (Prestel, 2017), Jim Amaral (Colombia, 2016), and Agustin Fernandez (Paris, 2012). She has contributed journal articles to Abraxas: International Journal of Esoteric Studies, Black Mirror, Journal of Surrealism in the Americas, and Nierika: Revista de Estudios de Arte, among others. She is currently working on a book titled Channeled Visions.

Swiss Institute Presents: Program 2: Donna Haraway: Storytelling for Earthly Survival - Anthology Film Archives
February 22, 2018 - New York

NYC PREMIERE! Donna Haraway & Fabrizio Terranova DONNA HARAWAY: STORYTELLING FOR EARTHLY SURVIVAL (2016, 82 min, digital) This film portrays the groundbreaking thinker Donna Haraway's pioneering work in science, technology, gender, and trans-species relationships over the last four decades, all of it marked by her deep commitments to feminism and environmentalism. Refusing to distinguish between humans and animals and machines, she proposes new ways of understanding our world that challenge normative structures and boundaries. Her approach to writing is equally distinct, breaking with prevailing trends in theory by embracing narrative techniques in painting a rebellious and hopeful future. Recognizing her singular talent for storytelling, Terranova spent a few weeks filming Haraway and her dog Cayenne in their California home, exploring their personal universe as well as the development of Haraway's views on kinship and planetary welfare. For the NYC premiere of the film, Donna Haraway will give a video introduction, and Fabrizio Terranova will present a collection of YouTube clips that he and Haraway have selected.

Ec: Forward, Soviet! - Anthology Film Archives
February 22, 2018 - New York

(SHAGHAI, SOVIET!) "FORWARD, SOVIET! was commissioned by the Moscow soviet for the 1926 elections. Structurally, the film compares prerevolutionary famine and disease with the dynamism of revolutionary life. Then after a sequence on newborn babies, Vertov's irrepressible futurism bursts forth. Buses and cars hold a political rally without the benefit of their drivers; an extended montage celebrates industrial forms with such gusto as to make Léger's contemporaneous BALLET MÉCANIQUE seem virtually Luddite." –J. Hoberman, VILLAGE VOICE

STRFKR - Brooklyn Steel
February 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

Being No One, Going Nowhere. The title of STRFKR's fourth album may seem bleak at first. But hold it in your head a minute, feel its weight, and you may recognize the phrase for what it is: a goal. In the era of the personal brand -- amid the FOMO Age -- it's increasingly hard to shed a stifling sense of self, or to just be in the moment that you're in. Well, consider this an invitation to get blissfully insignificant. That's what STRFKR founder Joshua Hodges aimed to do when he exiled himself to the desert to create this record, but he returned with his most significant work yet: a set of darkly glistening dance songs rife with sticky beats, earworming hooks, philosophical heft, and bittersweet beauty. The album opens on "Tape Machine," and the difference is readily apparent. On 2013's Miracle Mile, STRFKR refined a full-band sound, but this doubles down on and completely reimagines the project's electronic and pop roots. The initial synths could fuel a rave, and the ensuing groove could score a Drive sequel, but the song is richer still, with cosmic effects flying overhead and a psych-folk earthiness below. It isn't that the band sat this LP out -- drummer (etc.) Keil Corcoran penned the thick astral disco of "In the End," and he and bassist (etc.) Shawn Glassford both pitch in throughout. But Being No One, Going Nowhere was born in Joshua Tree after Hodges packed up his Los Angeles apartment and moved to that tiny Mojave outpost under the great big sky. "It came together for me in the desert," he says. "Out there, it's easy to feel small and slow." When Hodges started STRFKR in 2007, it was designed to be success-proof. The name was both unfit for radio and a jab at fame-chasers. But the project was also meant to be bright, playful and brimming with energy. He stumbled upon a winning juxtaposition that's a STRFKR staple to this day: dark (or heavy) lyrics set to happy music. Hodges credits that to Elliott Smith's influence, although Being No One, Going Nowhere has closer sonic kin in Italo-disco, kosmische musik and Tony Hoffer's work with Phoenix, Beck and M83. English thinker/writer Alan Watts, a scholar of Eastern philosophy, was another muse for Hodges -- his voice appears on nearly every STRFKR release, including this one. That's him on "interspace," talking about sloughing off preconceived identity to find one's place in the universe, which is the story of Hodges' eventual career: stop trying -- no, start not trying -- and succeed.

Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven - Brooklyn Bowl
February 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

Lineup: Reed Mathis (Billy & the Kids, Tea Leaf Green) Jay Lane (Primus, Ratdog) Todd Stoops (RAQ) Clay Welch While on tour with various projects over the past few years, bassist extraordinaire Reed Mathis spent his spare time rearranging Beethoven (Symphonies 3 and 6), recording each newly reimagined movement with a long and impressive "who's-who" list of his musical brethren, including Phish's Page McConnell and Mike Gordon, Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, the Barr Brothers, Robert Walter and Galactic's Stanton Moore. The resulting double album, "Beathoven," was released September 2016 on Royal Potato Family records. When imagining what it would be like to tour these Beethoven masterpieces, Mathis rearranged his rearrangements a second time, this time welding Beethoven's motifs and melodies to modern-era dance beats, with plenty of waypoints for the musicians to jump off into heavy, full-band improvisations. It's jamtronica with Beethoven — hence, the world's first CDM ("classical dance music") band. While the album's many special guests will show up at various shows along the way, to tour the album for the next two years, Mathis assembled his very own dream team: Jay Lane (Primus, Ratdog) on drums, Todd Stoops (RAQ / Kung Fu) on keyboards, Cochrane McMillan (Tea Leaf Green) on percussion and laptop, and Clay Welch — a young guitar phenom who literally grew up studying Mathis as a bass player while following Mathis' then-band, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, from show to show as a fan.

Kerri Powers - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
February 22, 2018 - New York

"Powers is something of an anomaly. She's like the music scene's version of the protagonist in the film, "The Natural," having spent the "prime of her career" out of the spotlight -- in her case, tending to her family -- only to return from absolutely nowhere to wow and amaze. Where Robert Redford made all the fans sit up and cheer with mammoth home runs, Kerri Powers is going to make people listening to this album do the exact same thing with exceptional song writing and equally exceptional delivery." -- Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise Kerri Powers was destined to be a musician from the start. While most kids her age spent their childhoods following frivolous pursuits, she spent hers reading, painting, writing stories, learning guitar and composing her first songs at the tender age of nine. By her own admission, she was a shy child, but her creative pursuits gave her an appreciation of the larger world around her. Those instincts seemed to have been bred naturally, given that there was undeniable talent embedded in her genes. Bing Crosby was a distant relative on her father's side, while her mother's relatives were said to be descended from author Herman Melville. Notably too, Powers' paternal grandmother made her living by playing piano and providing musical accompaniment for silent films, making her a show business standby back in the day. Not surprisingly then, Powers was encouraged to pursue her own creative ambitions while still in adolescence. Her mother, a talented visual artist in her own right, owned an extensive record collection, which gave Kerri her initial exposure to irrefutable icons like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and John Prine. "I would sit in a wicker rocking chair by the record player and sing along to the songs," she recalls. "I remember hearing John Prine's "Hello in There" for the first time and feeling that something magical was happening. It was a momentary yet memorable trip to a sad but hopeful place of lonely old faces."

Travis Greene - BB King Blues Club & Grill
February 22, 2018 - New York

Growing up with a mother who was a minister and choir director, Travis Greene says that gospel music "was like oxygen in our house, always part of my life," and no artist inspired him and strengthened his passion for God more than 12-time Grammy winning legend Kirk Franklin. Now an inspirational trailblazer in his own right, Greene's masterful fusion of music and ministry these past few years prompted Franklin to anoint him as one of the artists who are the "future of gospel music." Continuing on his global mission to "bring the cool back to the worship experience, and get people, especially the unchurched, excited," the two time Grammy nominee debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart with his latest album Crossover: Live From Music City. Its lead single "You Waited" hit the Top 5 on the Hot Gospel Songs chart.

Take Your Child to the Library Day - Emma Clark Library
February 22, 2018 - Setauket

For the 3rd consecutive year, Emma Clark Library is participating in an international movement to raise awareness for libraries. On Thursday, February 22 between 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., the Library will be celebrating “Take Your Child to the Library Day” during the school’s winter break. According to the American Library Association, there are more public libraries than Starbucks in the United States. “Take Your Child to the Library Day” highlights how libraries are vital to the community as sources of education, entertainment, and enrichment. It encourages parents to take full advantage of their local library and pass along that knowledge to their young ones. At Emma Clark, the day’s festivities include carnival games, face painting, temporary tattoos, balloon sculpting, crafts and more. And of course, everything else that the Library offers on a daily basis – books, audio books, computers, tablets, movies, music, toys, puzzles, and so much more. Last year close to 350 people took part in the celebration here in Setauket! Additionally, in keeping with the festivities of “Take Your Child to the Library Day”, each new library card sign-up on February 22 will be entered in a raffle. You’re never too young for a library card! Parents can get a card for their child as soon as they are born and immediately start enjoying the library’s resources, such as the “Time for Baby” program. There is no need to register for “Take Your Child to the Library Day”, and all families are welcome. Meet up with friends – or make new ones – and share your love of libraries with the future generation.

The Open Mind: Lessons from the Visual Arts with Eléna Rivera - Poets House
February 22, 2018 - New York

This workshop will focus on the ways the visual arts informs poetry, not just in writing in and about visual art (architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, performance art, installation and public art), but also the ways that the visual arts can help us to re-see our writing practice. How can the visual arts expand our idea of the poem, our practice of making, and help us access inspiration and stimulate our sensibilities? In this six-week workshop we'll write to, with, and in response to these forms of art, see what they have to teach us, how the methods of art-making can enliven our poetry. Participants will be given writing prompts and exercises to stimulate their creativity to generate work for a final project of their own choosing. We'll read short selections from various artists on their art-making process, such as Agnes Martin, Teju Cole, Nathaniel Dorsky, Gabriel Orozco, Gabrielle Civil, and read poets like Frank O'Hara, William Carlos Williams, Barbara Guest, Gwendolyn Brooks, John Ashbery, Gertrude Stein, John Taggart, Cornelius Eady and Anne Carson, among others.

Godfrey - Levity Live
February 22, 2018 - West Nyack

GODFREY is one of the hottest comedians on the circuit. Growing up in Chicago, he constantly got in trouble for misbehaving and being an all-around class clown. Godfrey's Nigerian parents unknowingly encouraged his bad behavior by showing him classic comedy films from an early age.

Bebe Miller Company & Susan Rethorst : the Making Room - New York Live Arts
February 23, 2018 - New York

THE MAKING ROOM NYC premiere The Making Room is an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process from start to premiere. Organized by Bebe Miller Company, the project brings together choreographers Bebe Miller and Susan Rethorst to generate a joint experience of the choreographic process. Audiences follows the artists’ engagement in each other’s processes—witnesses to their ideas and their alchemical connection, as well as materials gathered from the processes. Along with sharing their conversations, inspirations, and insights, they’ll both be showing some of their new work: Bebe Miller Company: In a Rhythm In a Rhythm is a suite of new dance works by Bebe Miller Company is based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, Choreographer Miller is looking at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Our tacit reading of the building blocks of situations is inherent in the culture it serves. Working with the premise that our willingness to decipher the unfamiliar cultivates shared understanding, the dances use texts as underlying maps of events and situations. Miller’s focus is on the “tell”—the subtle interactions of gesture, timing, focus and dynamics that are uniquely human, yet often illegible outside of familiar frames. We understand these bytes of kinetic information because we, as humans, move. Individual and cultural experience is a recognized presence in the studio during the creation of these works—we explore how overt or implicit the race/class/gender lens is, how it shifts and refracts. We embrace as well as suspend the implications of which men/women/raced/gendered individuals are conforming to as well as confounding expectations. We reflect on “who is available to do what; who is allowed to do what?” What arises between the dance artists—physically, psychologically—is brought forward as an integral part of the creative process. Susan Rethorst: Stealing from Myself Revisiting old work from the last 30 years, Rethorst draws on old bits and pieces to join new material in a new work for Gabrielle Revlock and Gregory Holt. The Making Room is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Wexner Center for the Arts, On the Boards, and NPN.

Modern Whale SAINTS Micky James - The Bowery Electric
February 23, 2018 - New York

Born and raised in the shadow of New York City, naturally Micky had a taste for the theatrical and aspired to become an artist and performer from a young age. In his music and personal style, Micky James explores a sound and aesthetic that is nostalgic of a bygone era in rock n roll music, while still maintaining a contemporary pop ambition. Micky's unique vocals are reminiscent of great character voices such as David Bowie and Julian Casablancas, alluding to the dark, mysterious, and romantic qualities that are so distinct to those artists. While Micky's flamboyant fashions evoke the glamour and swagger of past rock icons, his work is both equal parts style and substance.

After a long writing and recording period, 2016 saw the long-awaited release of latest full-length Under Summer. The album - at once subtle and joyous, hitting huge emotional peaks around moments of serene gentleness and heartbreaking sadness - was favourably reviewed by Pitchfork, FACT, DIY and countless more. A musical development from the band's debut LP, the new album was viewed as a progression in songwriting, delivery and expression. It exhibits new scope and wider interests, full of closely-crafted arrangement, multi-part vocal harmonies and new compositional focuses.

Joseph Arthur - City Winery
February 23, 2018 - New York

Anyone who has followed the career of Joseph Arthur since he was personally discovered by Peter Gabriel back in 1997, knows Arthur has never been an artist to look back. Over the course of his career to date, he's released fourteen albums under his own name, eleven official EP's and has been involved with several high profile side projects including Fistful Of Mercy (with Ben Harper & Dhani Harrison). However, when it was brought to Arthur's attention that 2017 marked the 15th Anniversary of one of his most beloved albums, Redemption's Son, he decided he wanted to do something to honor the occasion. Joseph Arthur will also be embarking on a limited run solo tour beginning on June 20th in Boston where he'll play the album from beginning to end. "I've never done this album from start to finish live," Arthur remarked. "But Redemption's Son was always a special record to me and my fans and this clearly seemed like the right time to do it. As I've been saying recently to my friends, listening to this album again after all of these years has re-inspired me which honestly was a complete surprise." On June 23rd, Real World Records, will re-issue the original album (with its original artwork) along with nine bonus tracks all of which have been previously unreleased. Redemption's Son 15th Anniversary Edition will be available on 180-gram double LP, double CD, and digitally. It will be the first time the album is available on vinyl ever. The nine previously unreleased songs now form a "lost album" which Arthur has named Morning Star.

New York's Golden Ice Age - Museum of the City of New York
February 23, 2018 - Upper East Side

Celebrate the glamour and excitement of New York's last "golden age" of ice skating in the 1940s and '50s at the Museum of the City of New York. Our evening begins with a conversation with two Brooklyn-born skating legends -- World Medalist Sonya Klopfer Dunfield and "Hockey Maven" Stan Fischler -- who will share their journeys from the Brooklyn Ice Palace to Madison Square Garden and beyond. Afterwards, inspired by the intimate ice-skating revues once performed at swank Manhattan nightclubs and hotels, skaters from the Ice Theatre of New York will demonstrate virtuosic skating on a synthetic rink right inside the Museum - while singer Marjie Shrimpton performs big band hits from the era. Seasonal cocktails and bites will be served. This program accompanies our exhibition, New York on Ice: Skating in the City (on view through April 2018). About the Speakers and Performers: Sonya Klopfer Dunfield started skating in 1944 at the Brooklyn Ice Palace. At 13, she became the youngest gold figure skating medalist, winning the U.S. Junior Championship in 1949. In 1951, she placed first in the U.S. Senior Championships and medaled in the World Championships. In 1952, she captained the U.S. Figure Skating Olympic Team and was a World Silver Medalist. After retiring from competition, she joined in the Ice Capades and replaced Sonja Henie in Holiday on Ice. Klopfer went on to coach at the Skating Club of New York and trained many prominent skaters including Dorothy Hamill, Yuka Sato, and Vera Wang. Klopfer has been inducted into the U.S., Canadian, and Professional Skaters Association Hall of Fame. Stan Fischler has been covering hockey for over 50 years. Known as the "Hockey Maven," he serves as the resident hockey expert for MSG Networks and regular contributor to MSGNetworks.com, for which he has received many awards, including multiple New York Emmys. He has authored or co-authored more than 90 books on the game and written for many publications including The New York Times and Sports Illustrated. His most recent book, Rangers vs. Islanders: Denis Potvin, Mark Messier, and Everything Else You Wanted to Know about New York's Greatest Hockey Rivalry (Sport Publishing) was published in October 2016. James Sullivan started playing hockey at the Brooklyn Ice Palace when he was 17, helping clean the ice to get free skating time. He went on to play for the New Jersey Mets and the semi-pro New Jersey Rockets. Sullivan later worked as a refrigeration engineer at South Mountain Arena. He then joined the New York City Police Department and started their hockey team in 1974. He was an NHL off-ice official for 44 years and once (in 1988) served as a linesman in a semi-final playoff game. Sullivan played hockey all over the U.S. and in Canada, Europe, and Russia, and still plays today twice a week. Ice Theatre of New York (ITNY), founded in 1984 by Moira North, celebrates and advances ice dance as an ensemble performing art. With its professional ice dance company, ITNY is dedicated to providing education and to presenting public performances for people of all ages, and presents ice dance that helps to open ones eyes to seeing skating in new and unexpected ways. ITNY was the very first ice dance company to receive dance program funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Marjie Shrimpton is a singer, actor, and dancer in New York. She recently made her cabaret debut to a sold-out audience at The Duplex in What Would Judy Do?, a musical tribute to Judy Garland. Shrimpton has been featured in a number of music videos and musicals, including Kerrigan-Lowdermilk's The Bad Years and Daniel Emond's The Whale. She regularly collaborates with Jennifer Jancuska + The BringAbout, a group of performing artists that works to help activate new musicals with movement early in the development process. $35 for adults | $30 for seniors, students & educators (with ID) | $25 for Museum members Includes Museum admission.

For the first time, Fiorella Mannoia will perform in the United States at the Broadway Town Hall in New York on February 23, 2018. The singer swears in the video published on his official Facebook page, which will be the latest of the fortunate season. Already some time ago, Mannoia had announced that with ""Combattente"" concerts it would have reached 100 dates, an incredible record for the same tour in just one year. For this reason, in informing New York time, Fiorella reassures fans that there will be no more dates ... for now. New York concert tickets are already available on regular sales channels. After this American experience, Fiorella Mannoia will stop and work on future projects. This 2017 was really an amazing year for the Roman singer: after the release of the album "Fighter" in November 2016, Mannoia participated at the Sanremo Festival with the intense "Be Blessed", which was ranked 2nd place, after Francesco Gabbani and his "Occidentali's Karma" and before Ermal Meta with "Forbidden to Die". After having been an actress in the film of Michele Placido "7 minutes", Fiorella wanted to measure with television and acting as conductor, with the show "One, Two, Three ... Fiorella!", A winning choice. The singer always lends herself to television hosts and enjoys dueting with colleagues or with young talent promises. Always in the front row even when it comes to contributing to beneficial events, Mannoia is one of the great protagonists of "Amici per l'Abruzzo", the concert organized by Laura Pausini in 2010 to raise funds for the earthquake de L ' Eagle.

Beverly Wildhoney Fits Blush - Saint Vitus
February 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

Baltimore-based guitar band Wildhoney have navigated through a grand canyon of pop music to create Your Face Sideways, a new 12" EP out on Topshelf Records on October 16, 2015. Traveling forward under a clear sky, Wildhoney pass under a series of constellations: first the Shangri-Las Nebula, then the rarely seen Cocteau Twins Hydra. Heard along the road through open windows, carols of Patsy Cline echo like siren songs. In Wildhoney's dark, lucid, and hook-heavy landscape, Zach Inscho plays drums, Joe Trainor and Marybeth Mareski play guitars, Alan Everhart plays bass, and Lauren Shusterich sings. Together the group makes their own sense of the pop tradition, as heard on recent tours with Ceremony, Eternal Summers and Whirr. Many have noticed the band's energy and efforts, and it has earned them high praise from NPR, the Chicago Tribune, Noisey, Impose, and Brooklyn Vegan amongst others. On their 2015 debut LP Sleep Through It (Deranged/Forward Records), Wildhoney proved themselves masters of creating a cohesive, yet diverse, full-length set of songs that left the listener wanting more. Critics noted the band's thoughtfulness and attention to dynamic. Sleep Through It was preceded by two EPs - a self-titled release (Nostalgium Directive) that showed off the band's heavy punk influences and first nervous forays into pop, and Seventeen Forever (Photobooth Records) on which the group advanced bravely forward, refining their sound and highlighting their catchy vocal melodies.

Deep fried Cello with steamed Voice - MIRROR Tea House
February 23, 2018 - New York

Conceptual countertenor Juecheng Chen, cellist Amy Tcheupdjian and chef Samuel Adedipe present: Deep fried Cello with steamed Voice - a fulfilling guaranteed multisensory three-course concert in Gowanus, Brooklyn Upcoming performance: 8pm Friday, February 23, 2018 Venue: Mirror In The Woods, 575 Union Street, Brooklyn, between Union Street & 3rd Avenue Tickets via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/deep-fried-cello-with-steamed-voice-tickets-42731794949 Deep fried cello with steamed voice is an experimental classical music performance with food created to compliment each set. When classical music is really cooked up, the fire in the music can warm you up deep in your soul. It is kind of like consuming a bowl of warming Ramen on a New York winter's night. Mannes alumni Juecheng Chen and Amy Tcheupdjian got together on such a night wanting to find out how classical music can redefine a New Yorker’s night out. That evening culminated in the making of this concert. “2018 marks a decade of my classical music journey abroad. I think now is the time to really dig into what classical music means to me, and the city that I love the most.” - Juecheng Since 2015, Juecheng performs regularly in his own curated shows throughout New York City. He believes that working with non-classical musicians, painters and designers will enlighten his understanding of how classical music evolves in the lens of today. Amy Tcheupdjian is a cellist who is intrigued by the process and experience created when performing in the darkness. The awareness of ourselves in this context will eliminate any inhibition of sight and will allow us to solely feel with our alternate senses. The inclusion of food will give a heightened perception for a sense that is often skipped due to the fast paced nature of our lives. “When I go to concerts I want an innovative experience. Performing in the darkness seems like the way to push my artistic skills to a new level.” - Amy In addition to the experimental dining experience with darkness and music, another highlight of the program includes the works of young composer Braam van Eeden. This includes a concert piece for four-hand piano and cello. Working with a living composer and sharing a stage is the tradition of classical music. This bond will shine through during the performance. Main course of the night goes with the set of experimental improvisation with live projections and an electronic double bass. Sound artist Fumio Tashiro and Juecheng will interact forming a contemporary sound world drawn from the influence of everyday sound and sounds from the Baroque era. Meanwhile, conceptual designer Miho Morita will simultaneously present moving images through live projection. ‘When you eat and listen to your favorite song or a song that sets a mood you’re in, it’s kind of euphoric.’ - Sam Chef Sam has been in the NYC food industry experiencing the ever-changing palate of people from various cultures. He has always been motivated to comfort people in this come and go nature of New York City. During this concert your appetite will expand the sense of hearing. This presents a discussion and can be a new understanding of classical music. The relationship between food and music is a natural balance that we may have forgotten and this is what we wish to excite and be considered. We would like to remind our listeners how music can be ‘smell’ and how food can be ‘heard’. Program Act I Deep fried Cello with Steamed Voice Braam van Eeden Ne Me Quitte Pas Jacques Brel arr. Braam van Eeden Variations on a theme of Schumann Braam van Eeden for four hands and cello Course One - Green Gazpacho Soup made of raw blended vegetables and served cold Act II Experimental improvisation with Electronic Double Bass, Countertenor, Cello, Piano & Illustrator Course Two - Porcini Risotto Italian rice dish served with ‘Steamed’ Porcini Mushrooms Act III Exogenesis Symphony no. 1: Overture Muse I’m Fine, Thanks Juecheng Chen, Amy Tcheupdjian Bachianas Brasileiras no. 5 Heitor Villa-Lobos Course Three - Kabayaki Wings ‘Fried’ chicken wings in a Japanese glaze About Juecheng Chen Ju-eh (Juecheng Chen) is a conceptual virtuosic countertenor who specializes in presenting what classical music can be today.

Throughout her studies, Amy has toured internationally with various ensembles throughout Scandinavia, Italy, Brazil, and Australia. Amy frequently performs and teaches throughout NYC. About Samuel Adedipe Nigerian-born and raised, Sam discovered his interest and love of food very young, cooking for his younger siblings at the age of 7. Upon moving to the United States in 2005, Sam began honing in on his culinary senses. Starting as a dishwasher in his first kitchen, Sam has climbed the culinary ladder and evolved into the Chef he now is. Sam felt it was important to be open and receptive to all areas in the kitchen in order to understand kitchen operations. As a chef, it is necessary to understand and respect culinary traditions of different cultures. Sam knows this is important and that is why he makes a point to study and practice the art of cooking. About Mirror in The Woods Mirror in The Woods was created to acknowledge and celebrate the "Now." By embodying the fundamental ideals of Morí: diversity, community, and collaboration. We invite to commune with us as we explore traditional as well as contemporary cuisines, arts, and cultures.

Dirkschneider - Gramercy Theatre
February 23, 2018 - New York

Farewell To Accept: Metal Icon, Udo Dirkschneider is planning a special tour in which he will perform Accept songs one last time before he closes the chapter for good. Wacken – At a press conference in the VIP tent of Wacken Open Air, legendary metal singer, Udo Dirkschneider dropped some bombshell news on all those in attendance: the 62 year old cult musician announced his definitive farewell to the Accept song library. On a special tour beginning in 2016, he will perform songs by Accept one last time before he retires them for good. It will be a night of epic proportions. During this Accept farewell tour, he will only showcase songs from the Udo era of the band. The German rock staple will close a huge chapter of music history forever. In the early 80´s, the Solingen-raised singer skyrocketed to worldwide acclaim with the band Accept and with his unmistakeable voice he had several hits such as Balls To The Wall and Princess of the Dawn. Now he has announced that he will perform these much loved hits on this special tour one more time before he removes them from the set list forever. „I still love singing these songs live," Dirkschneider says. „The songs still are an important part of my catalog and still suit my voice very well. But at some point in your life, it´s just time to close the chapter. There has been so much talk and speculation about Accept, so I just want to give my last definitive musical statement about it and give my fans a chance to see me perform a complete concert of these songs one last time on stage." After this tour, Udo will only play songs from his extensive library of U.D.O. material. After being kicked out of Accept in the late 80´s, he garnered many classic hits with his new band in a long and successful career, such as Animal House, Timebomb, and Man and Machine. „There is enough high quality material to fill a two hour set with no problem," says Dirkschneider. „U.D.O. has been the band where I belong for 18 years and I want to pay tribute to them from now on."

There is only family. The question posed at the beginning of the first song is, Are we family or not? The band evokes positive energy to their family members, who say they always feel better than when they arrived. The Charles Walker Band is Deliciously Stanky. Dynamically Funky. Recklessly Hopeful.

The program continues with classics of Americana and folk music that pay homage to our Armed Forces and history of brotherhood. Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" endures to this day for the way it perfectly captures the cultural and physical landscape of America. Audiences will thrill at the stunning arrangement of "Come Thou Fount" by Mack Wilberg. The chorus and orchestra invigorate the concert hall with the great anthem to freedom and justice, "Battle Hymn of the Republic," arranged by Peter Wilhousky.

Tal National - Littlefield
February 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

This event is 21 and over By the time Tal National reached international acclaim with 2013's Kaani, the band's first release outside of Niger, they had spent more than a decade crisscrossing Niger, usually on dirt pathways through the Sahara, playing epic five-hour sets, seven days a week, selling their CDs on street corners. In the process, they became Niger's most popular band. Audiences in the West and critics quickly embraced the band's singular and well-honed sound. Their second album Zoy Zoy is a distillation of Tal National's traditional roots and tireless drive into pure joy and celebration. The songs are intense yet sophisticated, combining original numbers with new arrangements of West African folk songs. The band speaks French, but use the American term "very rock and roll" quite seriously, implying their awareness that the loud guitars and bewildering rhythmic complexity separate them from their West African peers. Niger has no proper recording studios, music instrument shops, or record stores and the drummer makes his own sticks. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, Tal National thrives in a country parched of resources but teeming with music and rhythm. "The first thing that hits you when you listen to Tal National is the band's tightness and fiery energy." – NPR This concert is part of World Music Institute's Counterpoint Series

Starless Dreams - Anthology Film Archives
February 23, 2018 - New York

(ROYAHAYE DAME SOBH) "The world needs to see this spare, revelatory film and hear these girls' pained and sometimes proud confessions. They divulge their crimes, including assaults and murders. They speak of meth addiction and relentless abuse; they ask at group meetings why punishments in Iran are so much harsher for women who commit crimes than for men; they speak of family members in jail or awaiting the death penalty. One girl reports that her father, a robber and mugger, is now facing death after having been caught with meth in jail. 'I'm not as tough as I sound,' one admits, her face slight and girlish beneath her black headscarf. She just had to learn to be tough to survive on her own on the streets. In the detention center, addressing the camera, she at last faces someone interested in who she really is, in who she could be. The film follows none of these girls beyond those walls, leaving us to worry over them. When they're released, who will they have to be?" –Alan Scherstuhl, THE VILLAGE VOICE

Kristina Koller 'Perception' Show - Club Groove NYC
February 23, 2018 - New York

"Kristina has proven to be a force in the vocal jazz arena" – Cyrille Aimée "Indie-voiced Kristina Koller mixes jazz and bohemia…Gotta see her!" - JazzWeekly Accomplished, vocalist, composer and arranger Kristina Koller will present music from her debut album 'Perception'. As one of the most applauded rising stars in jazz, Koller has developed quickly into a highly individual vocalist, melding jazz, funk, R&B and alt-rock sounds into her songs. Kristina arranges tunes in unique ways, knowing that adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than recreating the performances of others. The New York native culled her musical chops in the NYC jazz scene, performing at venerable jazz haunts such as Smalls, Smoke, Minton's, Mezzrow as well as The Apollo Theater. Kristina was a featured Discovery Artist at the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival and her quintet were semi-finalists in the 2017 DCJazzPrix competition. Koller is a very original contemporary jazz vocalist, one that anyone interested in jazz, or for that matter progressive music, needs to hear.

The Other Side of Burka - Anthology Film Archives
February 23, 2018 - New York

(AZ PASE BORGHE) Set in a tight-knit, extremely conservative island community off the Southern coast of Iran where all women wear burkas, this film begins as an investigation into the suicide of a woman named Samireh. Her husband callously says that while he cares about the lives of his kids, women's lives are cheap. However, the women Oskouei interviews – many of whom were married off at age 12 or 13 – stand up for themselves and discuss their difficult existences. Oskouei relies mostly on close-up or medium-shot interviews, and as usual, displays his gift for framing people dynamically in tight spaces. Preceded by: MY MOTHER'S HOME, LAGOON / KHYANEYE MADARIYAM MORDAB (2000, 29 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.) A 67-year-old woman takes care of her 100-year-old mother, who is a complete invalid and talks compulsively about how she expects (and wishes) to die at any minute. But in order to make a living, the daughter, Kobra, goes out every day and works as a fisherwoman. Oskouei depicts the lagoon with a certain amount of lyricism, while simultaneously revealing the backbreaking nature of fishing.

The Dandy Warhols - Highline Ballroom
February 23, 2018 - New York

And then, the roof fell in. Literally. Three days after The Dandy Warhols finished recording their ninth album, Distortland, a 14,000 lb gush of water collapsed the roof of the Dandy's studio, filling the place with rainwater and 80 years of roofing materials. Had it happened a few days later, the Dandy's would have been on tour and the two months of humidity which ensued would have wrecked every last piece of gear. Well, as any good comedian knows, timing is everything. "Our whole thing is a disorganized byproduct of being alive," says Taylor-Taylor. "So our music is organized disorganization." Indeed it is – the Dandy's have always spectacularly blended the pristine with the unusual, the rhythmic with the unpredictable, the grit with the sheen. Since their inception in 1994, they've sailed through and past shifting musical climates by presenting thoughts un-mired by censorship and unfiltering their art. Making music out of Portland, Oregon for over twenty years, The Dandy Warhols - Taylor-Taylor (vocals, guitar), Zia McCabe (keyboards), Peter Holmstrom (guitar), and Brent DeBoer (drums) -- have gone on world tours, had hit singles and even taken the stage during the Greek riots. They've weathered shifts from vinyl and tape to CD and CD to digital, from paper fliers to social media and toiled with major labels, and still remained a pure synergistic unit.

The Skatalites - Brooklyn Bowl
February 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Skatalites are Jamaica's premier ska band since 1964 who backed artists like Bob Marley, Toots and The Maytals, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe and most of the singers of the day. Their infectious brand of bluesy,jazzy ska spread like wildfire around the island and spawned the entire genres of ska,rocksteady,reggae,dub,two-tone,and 3rd wave ska. The tiny island of Jamaica has probably had more effect on music globally than any other country or place in the world, and The Skatalites were the pioneers of the music that originally caused this. The original lineup lasted only 14 months but recorded thousands of tunes, some of which are still being discovered in the archives today. Although the group broke up in 1965, the members remained active in the evolution of Jamaican popular music as it increased in popularity. After hearing about the resurgence of interest in their music they reunited in 1983 to perform at Jamaica's famed Sunsplash festival. Subsequently in 1986 they migrated to the USA and began performing and touring all over the world as they continue to do now after 52 years in the music business. Despite changes in personnel over the years, the band has continued to stay viable in the market, recording and performing at some of the world's largest festivals and has been nominated twice for The Grammys. Their most recent recording "Platinum Ska" features some tracks with Lloyd Knibb , the original drummer who passed away in 2011 and was widely regarded as the creator of the ska beat as well as the "onedrop" rhythm that is the foundation of most reggae music. Also on some tracks is original alto sax man Lester Sterling who is still active but no longer touring regularly with the band. Original vocalist Doreen Shaffer contributes a vocal track on this cd and continues leading the band on it's path as it continues it's great legacy bringing joy to fans,old and new, all over the world. Forever indebted to the inspiration and talent of: Roland Alphonso, Lloyd Brevett, Tony DaCosta, Rupert Dillon , Don Drummond, Joseph " Lord Tanamo" Gordon, Jerome "Jah Jerry" Haynes, Lloyd Knibb, Tommy McCook, Donat Roy "Jackie" Mittoo, John " Dizzy Johnny" Moore, Jackie Opel, Doreen Shaffer, Lester Sterling.

Beechwood, Mammabear - Arlene's Grocery
February 23, 2018 - New York

Gordon Lawrence: Vocals, Guitar Isa Tineo: Drums Andy Manzanares: Bass Beechwood is an original rock and roll group from NYC formed in 2012. Carrying the torch of such infamous bands like The Stooges, MC5, and the New York Dolls, Beechwood's music stems from a tradition originated in good ol' fashioned juvenile delinquency. The trio consists of Gordon Lawrence, Isa Tineo, and Andy Manzanares. Lawrence plays and sings with a mix of the sensitivity of artists such as Alex Chilton or Elliott Smith, with the visceral aggressiveness of the Raw Power-era Stooges. Tineo matches Lawrence's style, playing drums with a style that often leaves hands bloodied and drum heads dismembered. And bassist Manzanares the quiet one of the group, leaves people in awe over the authority he demonstrates over his instrument, all the while wondering whether he's a boy or a girl.

Neal Morse Life & Times Concert Series - Cutting Room
February 23, 2018 - New York

Neal Morse's career path is full of unexpected twists and turns, sudden changes and pleasant surprises—much like the epic progressive rock compositions for which he has become known. In the mid '90s he formed the quirky Spock's Beard, whose debut recording, The Light, was an unexpected success. Over the next 7 years, Spock's Beard released 6 critically acclaimed studio recordings and multiple live recordings while establishing a passionate fan base in the "prog rock" community. In 2000, he formed the prog supergroup Transatlantic with drumming legend Mike Portnoy (formerly with Dream Theater), Marillion's Pete Trewavas and The Flower Kings' Roine Stolt. In a remarkably brief but productive few days together, they knocked out SMPTe, a richly received, massive work of vintage, long form prog. Two years later, the sophomore release, Bridge Across Forever, solidified Transatlantic's global appeal. In 2001, Morse shocked his followers with word that he was stepping away from music…with no indication of where he was heading. Morse was now walking an unknown road. After reaching success with Spock's Beard, he was starting all over again, this time boldly declaring his faith and risking fan rejection and financial failure. He needn't have worried. As the Testimony Live DVD triumphantly documented, his solo tour was full of magical moments and was a deeply affirming experience. Morse returned to the studio with Mike Portnoy and touring bass player Randy George to record 2004's One, a conceptual album that was a vast and rewarding work that harkened to new heights beyond his former work. Since then it's been Morse, Portnoy and George on the journey until members, Bill Hubauer and Eric Gillette were added as permanent members of the Neal Morse Band. In another striking move Morse debuted the Grand Experiment as "The Neal Morse Band" A Collective effort that saw a 5 way collaboration between the members. Morse continues to pursue other solo releases as well as maintaining a fan club which puts out content regularly throughout the year, encompassing all of Morse's ventures.

Dominique Morisseau's 'Detroit '67' - Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts
February 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

Detroit '67 is about big issues: race, home, Motown, family and a city under siege. In the tradition of A Raisin in the Sun and The Piano Lesson, Morisseau's drama is at its core about two siblings — Chelle and Lank — clashing over the right to maintain family stability or reach for a dream of economic progress. When a white, female stranger enters their lives, the lines of the legacy they're both fighting to protect become blurred. Set against the explosive racial tensions of the 1967 Detroit riots, which occurred over the course of five days, Morisseau might be letting us know that, despite it all, the music keeps us together.

Godfrey - Levity Live
February 23, 2018 - West Nyack

GODFREY is one of the hottest comedians on the circuit. Growing up in Chicago, he constantly got in trouble for misbehaving and being an all-around class clown. Godfrey's Nigerian parents unknowingly encouraged his bad behavior by showing him classic comedy films from an early age. While performing impressions of his college football teammates, Godfrey realized his irreverent style of comedy might be more than just a hobby.. As one of the most dominant forces in the comedy circuit, Godfrey has been seen on stages from New York and Los Angeles to Dubai. Along with his own one-hour special on Comedy Central, Godfrey recently starred in the FX pilot "Bronx Warrants," adding to his onscreen credits which include ZOOLANDER, "30 Rock," and a recurring role on "Louie." Godfrey also stars alongside Shaquille O'Neal on the TruTV series, "Upload," which is now going into its second season.

Tracy Bonham - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
February 23, 2018 - New York

"One of alternative rock's most steadfast and powerful singer-songwriters." ––Consequence Of Sound "A gorgeous celebration of adult love." ––Rolling Stone "Bonham's collection brings a sophisticated quirkiness to the femme alt-pop table unseen for quite some time." ––Billboard Tracy Bonham's major label debut, The Burdens of Being Upright (Island Records), achieved Gold Record status in 1996, spawning the chart topping hit single "Mother Mother." This lead to a pair of Grammy™ nominations, and an MTV Video Award nomination. Very soon after her world tour, the music business began to shift and change dramatically. Her sophomore album was delayed several times and by the time it was released in 2000, Island Records and the music business in general was almost unrecognizable. She released the arty and angry Down Here to critical acclaim but did not enjoy commercial success. In 2003, after moving to Los Angeles, Bonham became the featured vocalist / violinist on Blue Man Group's The Complex Tour and How To Be A Megastar 2.0 (2006). In 2005 Bonham released her third album Blink The Brightest (Rounder/ Zoé). This was her most commercial sounding album and several of the songs were featured in tv shows and movies such as The L Word, Weeds, and Sexting In Suburbia. In 2010, after moving back to Brooklyn and marrying Rolling Stone editor Jason Fine, Bonham released Masts of Manhatta. This album won accolades from major publications and landed her her second appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and The Late Late Show With Craig Furgussen. In 2015, Bonham released her fifth album entitled Wax & Gold with the help of Pledge Music and her fans. Wax & Gold was very well received by the public and the press. The album showed a maturity in songwriting, as well as an evolved vocal style, that makes Bonham stand out as a serious artist with a unique talent. Bonham is an artist who continues to create and grow no matter what obstacles are in her path.

Robert Stevenson of A Silent Film - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
February 23, 2018 - New York

For twelve years, Robert Stevenson was front-man, producer and primary songwriter of Oxford, UK's A Silent Film. The band's anthemic music broke into alternative rock fans' consciousness with their 2010 debut album The City That Sleeps and its single "You Will Leave a Mark," which was held the record for most weeks at #1 ever on SiriusXM's Alt-18 countdown. The band followed up with 2012's Sand & Snow and its hits "Harbour Lights" and "Danny, Dakota & the Wishing Well." In 2015, the band released its eponymous album A Silent Film, again achieving alternative radio success with its singles "Lightning Strike" and "Something to Believe in." Throughout, the band developed a hard-core following for their spectacular live performances. The Owl Mag described one of their shows: "There was nothing like this night. It wasn't just a concert. It was an experience for fans to hold onto forever…a night filled with intimacy and emotions." After 3 albums, multiple charting singles, festival appearances at Corona Capital and Firefly, supporting tours with OneRepublic, the Temper Trap and Smashing Pumpkins, and over 20 million streams of their songs, Robert and ASF co-founder Spencer Walker decided to take an indefinite break from the band to pursue other creative and personal priorities. As a thank you to their rabid fan base, Robert decided to mount an intimate tour of the U.S. playing the band's hits and other fan favorites in stripped-down, acoustic arrangements. The "All Good Things" tour will be the only time Stevenson will tour and perform A Silent Film's repertoire during the band's hiatus. "Spencer and I had taken some time off after his daughter was born," said Stevenson, "and when we re-convened, we both realized we were really happy doing things away from the band – for him fatherhood, for me producing and writing with other artists. So it felt like a natural time to close this chapter of the story. But we hadn't had a chance to say a proper good-bye to our absolutely wonderful fans. So we hatched the All Good Things idea as a way to do that given the practical considerations of Spencer not being able to go on the road."

Her unique voice has been featured on ABC Family's Switched At Birth, Sons of Anarchy and an IPhone commercial. Pasadena Weekly says, "Bridgers has made a name for herself in that scene in relatively short time thanks largely to the quicksilver beauty of her voice; sweetly vulnerable, it also has a tensile strength that beguiles listeners." Bridgers has played her own brand of alternative folk all over Los Angeles, including the Troubadour, the El Rey, the Roxy, Genghis Cohen, Hotel Café, The Coffee Gallery Backstage, the Claremont Folk Festival and the Grand Ole Echo.? According to LA-Underground, "Phoebe Bridgers' "Waiting Room" was the heartbreaker tune of the year. It's brilliant. She's something special."

Keren Ann - City Winery
February 23, 2018 - New York

For about fifteen years already, Keren Ann's albums are being leafed through and avidly read, like the pages of a great book. A book that narrates the course of life, its longings and desires, its past loves and its unquenchable passions. A book akin to a personal diary that would also be a universal one. A saga whose seventh volume, You're Gonna Get Love, is both continuing and renewing. There is continuity indeed, for it features familiar traits which have established her, the singing globetrotter and citizen of the world, as so singular a talent: her melodies, luminous in their straightforwardness, rich in their simplicity, and her sensual atmospheres imbued with melancholic beauty. There is renewal as well, for this album –her first solo effort in five years– reflects the experiences and life of a singer-songwriter at the pinnacle of her craft. This is an album that was delivered slowly, softly, echoing Keren Ann's recent motherhood, whose blossoming can be perceived underneath the eleven tracks. This is a way to come back to the limelight after five years spent in the shadows, writing for other artists.

Ethel, the String Quartet Redefining Concert Music, Continues Popular Met Museum Concert Series - Metropolitan Museum of Art
February 23, 2018 - Upper East Side

Since 2012, ETHEL, the acclaimed string quartet that Pitchfork.com described as "a necessary jet of cold water in the contemporary classical scene," has been serving as resident ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar. Marking the first time that a prominent musical group has been featured in that venue, ETHEL will performs there on a regular basis, sometimes with friends and collaborators, throughout the year. To enliven the Balcony Bar programming, the quartet also selects musical groups from ETHEL's expansive list of notable colleagues to perform when the group is on the road. This new programming initiative provides a variety of musical experiences to Met audiences delivered by a range of ensemble types and compositions. The Balcony Bar serves appetizers and cocktails on the second floor balcony overlooking the Great Hall. The performances, consisting of three sets between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m., are free with Museum admission. ETHEL + Friends @ Met Museum Performances at a Glance January 26-27 Loggins-Gookin Duo February 2-3 | Mivos Quartet February 9-10 | Laurence Hobgood Trio February 16-17 ETHEL February 23-24 ETHEL About ETHEL ETHEL was established in New York City in 1998, quickly earning a reputation as one of America's most adventurous string quartets—heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet and Soldier String Quartet, and part of a generation of young artists blending uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing—by playing with the intensity and accoutrements of a rock band. The New York Times has described them as "indefatigable and eclectic," and The New Yorker has deemed them "vital and brilliant." Nearly two decades into their singular career, ETHEL has in turn become seminal in its own right, a path-breaker for countless new genre-spanning ensembles, and a prolific commissioner of new music. At the heart of ETHEL is a collaborative ethos—a quest for a common creative expression that is forged in the celebration of community. The quartet creates and tours rich, often multimedia, productions including the evening-length ETHEL's Documerica, inspired by the tens of thousands of images shot as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's decade-long Project Documerica, launched in 1971; The River, a collaboration with Taos Pueblo flutist Robert Mirabal (album released June 2016); the introspective Grace, featuring ETHEL's arrangements of music by Ennio Morricone and Jeff Buckley; and Blue Dress, which pays homage to women making their musical mark on the 21st century. ETHEL has collaborated with artists including David Byrne, Bang on a Can All Stars, Kaki King, Todd Rundgren, Joe Jackson, Ursula Oppens, Juana Molina, Tom Verlaine, STEW, Andrew Bird, Thomas Dolby, Jeff Peterson, Laurence Hobgood, Jake Shimabukuro and Vijay Iyer. ETHEL's self-titled debut album was a Billboard "Best Recording of '03." Light ranked #3 on Amazon.com's "Best of '06." Oshtali: Music for String Quartet, '10, is the first commercial recording of American Indian student works, and Heavy, '12, was a Q-2 "Album of the Week." The recording of ETHEL'S Documerica, '15, was featured by The New York Times' Press Play and on iTunes' classical front page. The River with guest artist Robert Mirabal debuted in 2016, and was nominated for a NAMMY award. ETHEL has appeared as a guest artist on over a dozen music labels, to include: Laurence Hobgood's tesseterra (label TBD, 2017); The Paha Sapa Give-Back by Jerome Kitzke (Innova, 2014); (Cold Blue Two (Cold Blue Music, 2012); Glow by Kaki King (Velour Recordings, 2012); Blue Moth by Anna Clyne (Tzadik, 2012); The Duke by Joe Jackson (Razor & Tie, 2012); A Map of the Floating City by Thomas Dolby (Redeye Label, 2011); John the Revelator: A Mass for Six Voices by Phil Kline (Cantaloupe Music, 2008) with vocal group Lionheart; and the Grammy Award-winning, Dedicated to You: Kurt Elling Sings the Music of Coltrane and Hartman (Concord Records, 2009). The quartet regularly performs works by all of the members of the ensemble, alongside music by Philip Glass, Julia Wolfe, John King, Phil Kline, David Lang, Dan Friel, John Zorn, Missy Mazzoli, Anna Clyne, Steve Reich, Don Byron, Aleksandra Vrebalov, Marcelo Zarvos, Pamela Z, Evan Ziporyn and Terry Riley. Over the past five years, ETHEL has premiered 150+ new works, many of them commissioned by the quartet. ETHEL is the Resident Ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar and Ensemble-in-Residence at Denison University, where the quartet members were awarded honorary doctorates during the 2017 commencement exercises. ETHEL is: Ralph Farris (viola), Kip Jones (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello) and Corin Lee (violin).

Open Working Rehearsal: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra - Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall
February 24, 2018 - New York

Mahler didn't live to complete anything more than the opening Adagio of his Symphony No. 10, but what he left takes the audience on a powerful voyage filled with pathos, including one of the most truly heart-wrenching and terrifying moments in all symphonic music. Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique takes the listener on a compelling journey as well—what Bernstein called the first psychedelic music trip. Berlioz uses kaleidoscopic orchestral colors in a phantasmagoric tale of madness to depict an opium overdose, hallucinations of murder and execution, and a macabre Witches' Sabbath.

Tatyana Tenenbaum: Untitled Work for Voice - St. Mark's Church
Through February 24, 2018 - New York

Choreographer and composer Tatyana Tenenbaum explores the phenomenal space of the singing body. Untitled Work for Voice is a backstage musical; a show about a show whose production is never seen in completion. Five performers breathe sound and form into space, causing histories and narratives to appear and rupture. Singing bodies give way to vibration, unraveling the tightly choreographed music of American desire. Tenenbaum asks: "If we are the inheritors of white America–with our interwoven histories of coercion, direct compliance, and passive complicity– then are we capable of embodying a narrative, which acknowledges genocide, enslavement, dominance and appropriation as a basis for everything we know? What would this feel and sound like? How can we implicate our cultural patterns of yearning, catharsis, and individualism in order to forge an illicit future? This multifaceted 'theater of the singing body' searches for a new expressive landscape for body and voice."

Bebe Miller Company & Susan Rethorst : the Making Room - New York Live Arts
February 24, 2018 - New York

THE MAKING ROOM NYC premiere The Making Room is an investigation into innovative ways of sharing the creative process from start to premiere. Organized by Bebe Miller Company, the project brings together choreographers Bebe Miller and Susan Rethorst to generate a joint experience of the choreographic process. Audiences follows the artists’ engagement in each other’s processes—witnesses to their ideas and their alchemical connection, as well as materials gathered from the processes. Along with sharing their conversations, inspirations, and insights, they’ll both be showing some of their new work: Bebe Miller Company: In a Rhythm In a Rhythm is a suite of new dance works by Bebe Miller Company is based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. Inspired by the writings of Gertrude Stein, Toni Morrison and David Foster Wallace, whose voices capture diverse cultural relevancies through their structure of language, Choreographer Miller is looking at the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning through the juxtaposed dynamics of action and context in time and space. Our tacit reading of the building blocks of situations is inherent in the culture it serves. Working with the premise that our willingness to decipher the unfamiliar cultivates shared understanding, the dances use texts as underlying maps of events and situations. Miller’s focus is on the “tell”—the subtle interactions of gesture, timing, focus and dynamics that are uniquely human, yet often illegible outside of familiar frames. We understand these bytes of kinetic information because we, as humans, move. Individual and cultural experience is a recognized presence in the studio during the creation of these works—we explore how overt or implicit the race/class/gender lens is, how it shifts and refracts. We embrace as well as suspend the implications of which men/women/raced/gendered individuals are conforming to as well as confounding expectations. We reflect on “who is available to do what; who is allowed to do what?” What arises between the dance artists—physically, psychologically—is brought forward as an integral part of the creative process. Susan Rethorst: Stealing from Myself Revisiting old work from the last 30 years, Rethorst draws on old bits and pieces to join new material in a new work for Gabrielle Revlock and Gregory Holt. The Making Room is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund Project co-commissioned by New York Live Arts in partnership with Wexner Center for the Arts, On the Boards, and NPN.

P Credit Course: New York at Its Core - Museum of the City of New York
Through February 24, 2018 - Upper East Side

Course Information New York at Its Core: Examining Our City's Past, Present, and Future February 19 - 24, 2018, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm each day Course Credits: 3 P Credits (with ASPDP registration) 36 course hours / 36 CTLE hours The Museum of the City of New York is a CTLE certified provider Course Description What makes New York New York? How can our students engage with the history of our city and understand how its past shapes our present? How can they evaluate and apply data about NYC today to solve challenges we face in our future? Run by the Frederick A.O. Schwarz Education Center at the Museum of the City of New York and supported by the Museum's groundbreaking exhibition, New York at Its Core, this course will provide teachers with a deep historical understanding of change over time in New York City – examining its rise from a striving Dutch village to a preeminent global city now facing the future in a changing world. Using the story of New York City as a lens, educators will learn, practice, and design inquiry-based engagement techniques for student-centered learning that can be directly integrated into their classrooms. Experts in the field will engage participants with the history, art, and culture of New York City through a variety of learning activities, deepening participants' understanding of NYC's development while modeling and discussing best practices for historical inquiry, research, and presentation. Museum curators and educators will provide guided tours of the three galleries of New York at Its Core - Port City, 1609-1898; World City 1898-2012, and Future City Lab - and discuss how the Museum developed four foci – Density, Diversity, Money, and Creativity – as a way to help tie together disparate histories. Museum educators will lead and help participants practice visual inquiry exercises (such as Visual Thinking Strategies and "I See, I Think, I Wonder"), and will guide participants through classroom exercises that bring history to life for students. They will also demonstrate how the strategy of "peopling" history with active characters can help students understand the effects of both change makers and everyday New Yorkers on the city and allow them to envision how they too can shape the future. Finally, scholars will present current historical analysis and discuss best practices for undertaking historical inquiry and critically examining data through mapping, data visualization, and digital games. Course participants will practice designing coherent instruction by putting their new content knowledge, research skills, and pedagogical strategies to use through the creation of three lesson plans for their classroom. Peer workshops will allow participants to hone their lesson activities and strengthen their lesson design. The Museum is CTLE certified. Participation in this program provides 36 hours of CTLE credit. Eligible participants who register with ASPDP and complete the course requirements also receive 3 P Credits.

Through February 24, 2018 - New York

Now Extended Through March 4 Only! Off-Broadway Premiere a co-production with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges by Kate Benson directed by Lee Sunday Evans with Noel Joseph Allain, Kate Benson, Ugo Chukwu, Jorge Cordova, Leah Karpel, and Julia Sirna-Frest "A stealthily ferocious, comfortingly hopeful, very funny new play. An exhortation to get out of your head and live, in thoughtful pursuit of joy." –The New York Times "Laugh-out-loud hilarious." –New York Magazine "Hugely worth seeing." Four Stars! A Critics Pick! –Time Out New York "Magical, mischievous, and just plan hilarious." –Theatermania A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She's a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender–a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?). Her friends, her wine, and her artisanal snacks are there; her doubts about being a Modern Woman are put on snooze. A handsome stranger walks in and orders something special. Disruption ensues: an upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it's made? WP Theater teams up with The Bushwick Starr in association with New Georges to present the Off-Broadway debut of the sold-out hit [PORTO] by Kate Benson and directed by WP Theater Lab Alum Lee Sunday Evans, whose last collaboration, the Obie Award-winning A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes, was a smash success at WP in 2015. [PORTO] was initially produced by WP Theater Lab Alum Rachel Karpf, John Del Gaudio and The Bushwick Starr, where it received its world premiere in their 2016-17 Season.

Beatriz Ferreyra / Eric Frye: Obfuscation Morphologies - ISSUE Project Room
February 24, 2018 - Brooklyn

Saturday, February 24th, ISSUE presents Argentine acousmatic composer Beatriz Ferreyra and Obfuscation Morphologies, a new work by Eric Frye. Though they differ in generation, both composers employ kindred methods for orienting sonic surfaces with signature intensity and precision across electroacoustic and computer music. Both Ferreyra and Frye present their work specifically for an eight-channel sound arrangement, a rare listening opportunity. Beatriz Ferreyra began her composing career incidentally, having been exposed to the musical methods of Pierre Schaeffer and the Groupe de Recherches Musicales, shortly after moving from her native Argentina to Paris in the 1960s. Ferreyra's passion for unusual sounds organic jump-started an education that led to the creation of her own entrancing electroacoustic works, as well as collaborations with alternative instrument inventors like Bernard Baschet and assisting roles in the realization of compositions by Schaeffer himself. Ferreyra has remained active in the five decades since her initial experimentations, including work at the Institute for Electroacoustic Music in Bourges and in the field of music therapy, but official releases of her music have been few and far between. In 2015, her album GRM Works was released via Recollection GRM in collaboration with the Viennese label Editions Mego, and the pairing of archival recordings with more recent compositions showcased a remarkable consistency of artistic vision. The Recollection GRM label, which has done fine work reissuing epochal works from the likes of Schaeffer, Luc Ferrari and Bernard Parmegiani, decisively position Ferreyra's overlooked work in the otherwise Male-dominated GRM canon.

Wicked - Gershwin Theatre
Through February 24, 2018 - New York

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you'll never forget.

Paul: Apostle of Christ - Sheen Center
February 24, 2018 - New York

Paul (James Faulkner, Game of Thrones) suffers alone in a Roman prison, awaiting his execution under Emperor Nero. Mauritius (John Lynch), the ambitious prison prefect, can hardly see what threat this broken man poses. Once he was Saul of Tarsus, the high-ranking and brutal killer of Christians. Now his faith rattles Rome. At great risk, Luke the Physician (Jim Caviezel) visits the aged Paul to comfort and tend to him - and to question, to transcribe and to smuggle out Paul's letters to the growing community of believers. Amid Nero's inhuman persecution, these men and women will spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and change the world. A conversation with the filmmakers will follow the screening.

With Intimo, the troupe continues to push the boundaries of the traditional flamenco format, and as with the dazzling Antigona, from 2015, this new piece draws from the realm of dance theater, while still retaining the integrity of the raw and rapturous art form. Barrio, whom The New York Times deemed "one of today's great dancers of any genre," performs alongside other brilliant flamenco dancers and musicians, many hailing from Spain. (Note: Soledad will not perform during the Saturday matinee performances.)

Fairy Tale Writing Class and Contest for Queens Kids! - Queens Library at Jackson Heights
February 24, 2018 - Jackson Heights

Attention Queens parents, teachers, and kids: Free creative writing classes and writing contest for kids! Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting writing and poetry in Queens, in partnership with Queens Library and City Council Members Daniel Dromm and Elizabeth Crowley, is offering free creative writing classes for kids and teens. The next class is Saturday, February 24th at 3 p.m.–4:30 p.m. at Queens Library at Jackson Heights located at 35-51 81st St. for kids ages 8 through 12: “Twisted Tales: Re-telling Fairy Tales, Myths, and More” Some stories we all know: we’ve heard them told and re-told our entire lives. Retelling classic stories can be a great way to tell your own! In this 90-minute class, we’ll talk about what makes a good retelling (and a good story to retell). Through group and individual writing exercises, we’ll try our hands at a few different techniques for twisting well known stories from fairy tales, folklore, mythology, and the classics into our own brand new tales. Heather Talty is a writer, editor and former librarian. She has fairy-tale inspired stories in several publications, most recently NonBinary Review. One student in each class will be randomly selected to receive a free hardcover notebook to keep all their writing in! For more information, visit newtownliterary.org/writingclassesforkids Newtown Literary is also running its biennial writing contest for Queens kids in grades 3 through 12. The winners are published in Queens’s literary journal, Newtown Literary, and have the opportunity to read their work at the awards ceremony in June. The deadline to submit poetry or fiction is March 29, 2018. For more information, rules, and to submit, visit newtownliterary.org/qyap.

The King of Kings, with Live Organ Accompaniment - The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
February 24, 2018 - New York

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, partnering with the New York City Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, will present a screening of legendary director Cecil B. DeMille’s silent epic The King of Kings with live organ improvisation by Cathedral Artist in Residence David Briggs on Saturday, February 24 at 7:30 pm at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan. Cecil B. DeMille (1881-1959)’s The King of Kings is a particularly apropos film for the Lenten season: the second in DeMille’s Biblical trilogy, the plot follows Christ, Mary Magdalen, and the Apostles through the miraculous events leading to the Crucifixion and Resurrection. David Briggs, appointed Artist in Residence at the Cathedral in October 2017, is a master of the pipe organ and among the most prominent exponents of the art of improvisation. Having previously accompanied such classic silent films as Lang’s Metropolis and Hitchcock’s The Lodger, his legendary skill has delighted audiences the world over and inspired a rising generation of future organists. “The goal is inevitably to make the music expand on the inherent message and emotion of the movie and the two have to be very closely dovetailed,” Briggs says. “King of Kings is a gift for the improviser: in a hushed, darkened church, with the movie looming large at the front and an improvised, dramatic, post-romantic score coming from a wonderful instrument – in the unique architectural environment of St. John the Divine – I hope the effect will be mesmerizing.” Tickets are $20. To purchase tickets and for more information on future concerts, please visit http://www.stjohndivine.org/visit/calendar/events/music/18938/the-king-of-kings-1927-with-live-organ-accompaniment.

Trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas returns to The Appel Room with another one-of-a-kind program. In Dizzy Atmosphere, Douglas will use Gillespie repertoire as a starting point for improvisation and exploration. Gillespie's music has the necessary depth for it to be carried in many different directions — as demonstrated by a vast and varied history of incredible interpretations — and Douglas always finds a delightfully unexpected path toward interesting musical fusions. Joining him is a powerhouse group of improvisers and composers known for their thoughtful and exciting contributions to practically any musical context. Making his Jazz at Lincoln Center debut is trumpeter and Thelonious Monk Competition winner Ambrose Akinmusire. On piano is Gerald Clayton, a rising star with professional experience far beyond his years. On bass is the extraordinary performer and composer Linda Oh, who recently joined Pat Metheny's touring band. On drums is the inimitable Joey Baron, who has performed with a broad range of jazz artists including Gillespie himself. Finally, the genre-defying guitarist Bill Frisell joins as special guest, performing with Douglas for the first time since their outstanding 2004 recording, Strange Liberation. With a sense of open-ended possibility, this new group is sure to present a soulful and creative vision of Gillespie and his music. Join us for a truly unique celebration of Dizzy Gillespie.

February 24, 2018 - New York

Contemporary jazz guitarist, Tom Chang leads a quintet featuring some of the finest improvisers in the New York jazz scene. The music will encompass modern jazz to contemporary classical all with a heavy emphasis on groove and melody. "What separates these tracks from other rock-leaning cuts made by jazz musicians today? It feels authentic. And then the brief funk tune "Scatterbrain" emerges about halfway though the album, there's chicken-scratch guitar and a simple yet heavy beat that screams The Meters. But later, things get eerie, as is someone was mixing funk with a New York jazz edge. That someone was Chang." --Brad Faberman (Downbeat Mag.)

His recording and performing career - spanning jazz, rock, punk and experimental - is well into its fourth decade, with over 200 recordings, including at least 30 for which he is the leader. Cline has received many accolades including Rolling Stone anointing him as both one of 20 "new guitar gods" and one of the top 100 guitarists of all time.

Nose, Iranian Style - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2018 - New York

(DAMAGH BE SABKE IRANI) Starting out by contrasting brutal footage of the Iran-Iraq War with the posh ski resort now standing where many of its battles took place, NOSE, IRANIAN STYLE documents a generation in search of an identity, and often resorting to plastic surgery as a means to express itself. Per capita, Iran is the plastic surgery capital of the world. Oskouei talks to members of the film industry, intellectuals, and ordinary people who are planning to get nose jobs for various reasons. Rather than simply condemning the prevalence of plastic surgery – although it's clear that the director is alarmed by the phenomenon – Oskouei suggests that it reflects a void created by an empty pop culture, rigid religious dictates, and a lack of real options for Iranian youth. He focuses on both men and women who have gone under the knife, or wish to do so. In NOSE, IRANIAN STYLE, Oskouei depicts people who are far more privileged than the subjects of his trilogy about teenagers and prison, but whose lives seem just as troubled beneath the surface. Preceded by: MARYAM OF HENGAM ISLAND / MARYAM JAZIREHYE HENGAM (2005, 26 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.)

Ec: Man with a Movie Camera - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2018 - New York

(CHELOVEK S KINO-APPARATOM) "If Vertov had never made anything other than MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA he would still be among the cinema's greatest masters. A kaleidoscopic city symphony – conjoining Moscow, Kiev, and Odessa in one dizzying metropolis – this is Vertov's most complex film, matching the rhythms of a day to the cycle of life (birth, death, marriage, divorce) and the mechanisms of movie-making to the logic of production. Made without titles, the movie is at once a documentary portrait of the Soviet people, a reflexive essay on cinematic representation (as dazzling as it is didactic), and an ode to work itself as a process of transformation." –J. Hoberman, VILLAGE VOICE

It's Always Late for Freedom + the Last Days of Winter - Anthology Film Archives
February 24, 2018 - New York

IT'S ALWAYS LATE FOR FREEDOM / HAMISHE BARAYE AZADI DIR AST (2007, 52 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.) IT'S ALWAYS LATE FOR FREEDOM is the first film in Oskouei's trilogy about teenagers and prison. As always, Oskouei excels at developing a rare level of trust with his subjects, who seem completely natural as they discuss profoundly difficult subjects. The film includes images of 12-year-old boys writhing in agony as they suffer through crack withdrawal. Less concerned with the root social causes of his subjects' social problems than in the subsequent two films in the trilogy, Oskouei here carefully avoids demonizing prison or the people who work there. His ability to frame teenagers in revealing ways is striking, particularly given the limited space with which he had to work. & THE LAST DAYS OF WINTER / AKHARIN ROUZHAYE ZEMESTAN (2011, 52 min, digital. In Farsi with English subtitles.) The second part of Oskouei's trilogy, THE LAST DAYS OF WINTER depicts a group of shockingly young boys, all apparently drug addicts who wound up in trouble for stealing to support their habits. The film includes elements of cinema vérité, but the camerawork is closer to neo-realism, and Oskouei calls frequent attention to his own presence: although he never appears on-camera, his voice is heard throughout. He manages to achieve a rare degree of intimacy with his subjects, as they talk to the camera about deeply personal ideas, and when he goes outside with them, he has a knack for picking just the right locations in which to film them.

Lane 8: Little By Little Tour - Brooklyn Steel
February 24, 2018 - Brooklyn

Rather than pander to the purists or create music for DJs alone, Daniel Goldstein aka Lane 8 has always tread his own, distinctive path -- perhaps best summed up by his phones-free event and label concept This Never Happened. The concept is a simple one: remove all phones and cameras from the event, get back to connecting with the music and the people around you. And it is one that has been embraced with passion by Lane 8's dedicated fanbase and the dance community at large. With his most recent This Never Happened tours including sold-out shows at Warsaw in New York, The Fonda in LA, and Zoo Project in Sydney, the This Never Happened message is being spread far and wide. In tandem with the events, Daniel's output on the TNH label has stood out for its integrity and artistry whether on emotional epics like "Fingerprint" or quirky upbeat groovers such as "With Me." Always defined by a melodic touch, TNH is the culmination of a steady, assured rise over recent years. After blowing up in the blogosphere with a series of Soundcloud-driven Hype Machine #1s around 2014, Lane 8 rose to wider prominence through a relationship with the tastemaking Anjunadeep label and his critically acclaimed 2015 album "Rise." Returning to the label with the Kidnap Kid collaboration "Aba," 2017 will also see a steady stream of music on This Never Happened and more TNH tours the world over. Alongside his own productions, his remixes have almost become as sought after as his originals with reworks of Maribou State's Wallflower and ODESZA's "Bloom." More recently he has given RUFUS's leftfield pop gem "Innerbloom" and Deadmau5's iconic "Strobe" his own unique touch.

America - St. George Theatre
February 24, 2018 - Staten Island

The year 2017 marks the 47th Anniversary of perennial classic-rock favorite, America. Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate Dan Peek) met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song "A Horse With No Name". America became a global household name and paved the way with an impressive string of hits following the success of their first #1 single. Forty plus years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound. America's journey has found them exploring a wide variety of musical terrain. Their best-known tunes, which also include "I Need You," "Ventura Highway," "Don't Cross The River," "Tin Man," "Lonely People," and "Sister Golden Hair" were cornerstones of 1970's Top 40 and FM rock radio. Yet beyond their impressive catalog of hits, listeners would discover there was always much more to America than surface perceptions. The combination of Gerry Beckley's melodic pop rock and Dewey Bunnell's use of folk-jazz elements, slinky Latin-leaning rhythms and impressionistic lyric imagery contrasted well with Dan Peek's more traditional country-rock leanings and highly personal lyrics. America's albums–six certified gold and/or platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, hitting four plus million in sales–displayed a fuller range of the trio's talents than did their singles. Their material encompassed an ambitious artistic swath; from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys to soul-bearing ballads, America displayed a flawless blend of disparate genres and styles as wide-open as the great American plains. Enjoying massive success early in their career, America earned their stripes as musical soldiers on the battlefield amidst the excess, craziness and chaos of the 70's. The trio won the Grammy® for Best New Artist in 1972 and began working with George Martin and Geoff Emerick in 1974. This successful team went on to record seven albums and several Top Ten hits, including "Tin Man" and "Sister Golden Hair". By the mid-70s, inter-band conflicts combined with an exhaustive touring and recording schedule exacted its toll on the group. With Peek's departure from the fold in 1977, Gerry Beckley & Dewey Bunnell rose to the challenge and carried on as a duo. Shifts in sound and direction, changes in producers and managers, and a renewed dedication to the craft of songwriting helped rocket America to the upper reaches of the pop charts in 1982 with their smash single, "You Can Do Magic." During this tumultuous time in their career, Beckley and Bunnell immersed themselves in their craft, infusing a newfound maturity into their rich body of work. Their growth as singers, songwriters and musicians has continued into the present day as illustrated by landmark releases such as 2000's Highway 3-disc box set, 2002's Holiday Harmony, an album comprised of seasonal classics and live showcases, 2007's Here & Now, 2009's Live In Concert: Wildwood Springs and 2011's Back Pages. From their formative years, America has been a band capable of transcending borders with its uplifting music and positive message. Embracing a rainbow of divergent cultures, America's audiences continue to grow, comprising a loyal legion of first, second and third generation fans, all bearing testament to the group's enduring appeal. "I think that the ingredients of the America sound are the basic fundamentals that translate internationally," explains Beckley. "The Italians are huge fans of dance music, but they also love a ballad–they're romantic at heart. It's the same in the Far East. A lot of times in these countries, we see people singing along, and they don't really know what the words mean. Music is truly the international language." www.venturahighways.com

The Brobot Johnson Experience - The Bushwick Starr
Through February 24, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Bushwick Starr is thrilled to collaborate with All For One Theater in presenting The Brobot Johnson Experience, an Afrofuturism transmedia piece written by and starring award-winning solo performer, actor, and poet, Darian Dauchan, who has appeared on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and abroad. The recently coined "Afrofuturism" genre is referred to by The New York Times as "...a political and cultural genre that projects black space voyagers, warriors and their heroic like into a fantasy landscape, one that has long been the province of their mostly white counterparts." At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson. One hundred years from now a race of Hip Hop androids known as Brobots will form a unit, The Tribe Called Space Quest, to spread their message of peace, love, and dopeness all over the universe. Through live looped vocals, rhymes, and beat-boxing, they perform the origin story of the first of their kind. They call it The Brobot Johnson Experience, a Sci-Fi Hip Hop solo concert that defies both space...and time.

Dominique Morisseau's 'Detroit '67' - Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts
February 24, 2018 - Brooklyn

Detroit '67 is about big issues: race, home, Motown, family and a city under siege. In the tradition of A Raisin in the Sun and The Piano Lesson, Morisseau's drama is at its core about two siblings — Chelle and Lank — clashing over the right to maintain family stability or reach for a dream of economic progress. When a white, female stranger enters their lives, the lines of the legacy they're both fighting to protect become blurred. Set against the explosive racial tensions of the 1967 Detroit riots, which occurred over the course of five days, Morisseau might be letting us know that, despite it all, the music keeps us together.

February 24, 2018 - New York

Natalie Diaz begins a recent craft talk, "Building The Emotional Image," considering the interplay between images, story, and history in her poems, reflecting on how her images "mostly come from my home, the place where my brain was formed and where all the little electrical circuits in my brain learned to fire." In this course, we'll follow her lead, exploring the infinite possibilities of our own obsessions, interests, and memories. Each session will be devoted to generative writing, the creation of new work, and chances to discuss the surprising drafts that emerge.

American Museum of Natural History Presents: One Step Beyond (February 2018) - American Museum of Natural History
Through February 24, 2018 - New York

The American Museum of Natural History’s One Step Beyond on Friday, February 23, celebrates California’s Bay Area hip-hop culture with DJs from the region: DJ D Sharp, DJ Mind Motion, and Tap. 10. From hip-hop’s beginnings to its current status as a cultural behemoth, the Bay Area has contributed mightily to the art form and its global influence, producing icons such as E-40, 2 Pac, Mac Dre, and groups like Hieroglyphics, Quannum, and The Heartbreak Gang. The Bay Area continues to be a key part of today’s global hip-hop community, and this event is a celebration of its many musical contributions. The event will take place in the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Hall of the Universe. At this ongoing party series, guests can dance in the Museum’s Rose Center for Earth and Space to the sounds of the biggest names in techno, electronica, hip-hop, and indie rock. Guests can also enjoy the Hayden Big Bang Theater, located in the lower part of the Hayden Sphere, which features a dynamic multimedia presentation, narrated by acclaimed actor Liam Neeson, that takes visitors on a thrilling four-minute trip from Earth to the edge of the visible universe. Who: DJ D Sharp’s melodic congruence is boosted by his Oakland influence. He has performed around the world, from Rome to Rio and Manila to Madrid for Fortune 500 companies, foreign dignitaries, at the hottest venues in the world, and even President Barack Obama. Now, as the official DJ of reigning Western Conference Champion’s the Golden State Warriors, D Sharp raises the decibel levels at the infamous Oracle Arena. DJ Mind Motion of the legendary Pirate DJs has been “Rockin’ The Party” for nearly 20 years in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. From his early start breakdancing with the Mind Motion Crew in the early ’80s, to moving the crowd with his brother DJ EFX, Mind Motion was destined to become a hip-hop and DJ pioneer. He picked up his first turntables when he was 13 years old, and soon after started playing house parties, birthdays, and weddings, then moved to bigger and broader audiences of schools and big hall dances. Now, Mind Motion is a founder and member of the “Pirate DJs” crew and currently the resident DJ for Chuy Gomez in the afternoon drive on Hot 105.7 from 3 to 7pm. TAP.10 started recording local radio mix shows before he even owned turntables, and later studied the mix techniques of Wake-Up Show soundman DJ Revolution, Invisibl Skratch Piklz’ DJ Shortkut, and Beat Junkies own J. Rocc, incorporating their technical wizardry and effortless crowd control into his sets. TAP.10 has performed in many cities across the country, including Las Vegas, Austin, Denver, Miami, Orlando, New York, and Los Angeles. When he is not performing in other cities, TAP.10 DJ’s at his New York party residencies, handles artists and repertoire for the Bay Area Music Collective, Honor Roll, and works with fellow Honor Roll members Trackademicks and 1-O.A.K. Admission to One Step Beyond is $26 in advance, $30 on the day of the show. Guests must be 21 or older and present valid ID. A beer and wine cash bar is available. Advance purchase is recommended.

Charlie Hunter Trio Featuring Silvana Estrada - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
February 24, 2018 - New York

After nearly 20 years of recording, it's remarkable how much ground Charlie Hunter has covered. Rising out of the Bay Area jazz scene with a freakish virtuosity on a custom eight-string guitar that allowed him to play bass and melody lines simultaneously, Hunter performed at Lollapalooza in 1993 and released the first of six albums for Blue Note in 1995. Since then he's recorded with musicians that include drummer Leon Parker, vibraphonist Stefon Harris and Norah Jones, who sang on two tracks for Hunter's 2001 album "Songs From the Analog Playground." Often lumped in with the so-called "jam band" crowd after earning a following on the festival circuit, Hunter's music isn't so easy to pigeonhole. Having touched on elements of soul-jazz, reggae and boisterous funk-rock in the past, Hunter recently set aside electronics for a cleaner tone well-suited for a 2010 solo album of classic covers chosen by his 100-year-old grandfather aptly called "Public Domain."

Garland Jeffreys - City Winery
February 24, 2018 - New York

Garland Jeffreys has long held the respect of his peers and the breadth of contributors to his recordings and performances reflect that, as well as an ahead of his time penchant for musical genre-bending: Dr. John, The E Street Band, John Cale, Michael Brecker, Larry Campbell, The Rumour, James Taylor, Phoebe Snow, Sly & Robbie, Sonny Rollins, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Lou Reed among many more have recorded and performed with him.

Ethel, the String Quartet Redefining Concert Music, Continues Popular Met Museum Concert Series - Metropolitan Museum of Art
February 24, 2018 - Upper East Side

Since 2012, ETHEL, the acclaimed string quartet that Pitchfork.com described as "a necessary jet of cold water in the contemporary classical scene," has been serving as resident ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar. Marking the first time that a prominent musical group has been featured in that venue, ETHEL will performs there on a regular basis, sometimes with friends and collaborators, throughout the year. To enliven the Balcony Bar programming, the quartet also selects musical groups from ETHEL's expansive list of notable colleagues to perform when the group is on the road. This new programming initiative provides a variety of musical experiences to Met audiences delivered by a range of ensemble types and compositions. The Balcony Bar serves appetizers and cocktails on the second floor balcony overlooking the Great Hall. The performances, consisting of three sets between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m., are free with Museum admission. ETHEL + Friends @ Met Museum Performances at a Glance January 26-27 Loggins-Gookin Duo February 2-3 | Mivos Quartet February 9-10 | Laurence Hobgood Trio February 16-17 ETHEL February 23-24 ETHEL About ETHEL ETHEL was established in New York City in 1998, quickly earning a reputation as one of America's most adventurous string quartets—heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet and Soldier String Quartet, and part of a generation of young artists blending uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing—by playing with the intensity and accoutrements of a rock band. The New York Times has described them as "indefatigable and eclectic," and The New Yorker has deemed them "vital and brilliant." Nearly two decades into their singular career, ETHEL has in turn become seminal in its own right, a path-breaker for countless new genre-spanning ensembles, and a prolific commissioner of new music. At the heart of ETHEL is a collaborative ethos—a quest for a common creative expression that is forged in the celebration of community. The quartet creates and tours rich, often multimedia, productions including the evening-length ETHEL's Documerica, inspired by the tens of thousands of images shot as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's decade-long Project Documerica, launched in 1971; The River, a collaboration with Taos Pueblo flutist Robert Mirabal (album released June 2016); the introspective Grace, featuring ETHEL's arrangements of music by Ennio Morricone and Jeff Buckley; and Blue Dress, which pays homage to women making their musical mark on the 21st century. ETHEL has collaborated with artists including David Byrne, Bang on a Can All Stars, Kaki King, Todd Rundgren, Joe Jackson, Ursula Oppens, Juana Molina, Tom Verlaine, STEW, Andrew Bird, Thomas Dolby, Jeff Peterson, Laurence Hobgood, Jake Shimabukuro and Vijay Iyer. ETHEL's self-titled debut album was a Billboard "Best Recording of '03." Light ranked #3 on Amazon.com's "Best of '06." Oshtali: Music for String Quartet, '10, is the first commercial recording of American Indian student works, and Heavy, '12, was a Q-2 "Album of the Week." The recording of ETHEL'S Documerica, '15, was featured by The New York Times' Press Play and on iTunes' classical front page. The River with guest artist Robert Mirabal debuted in 2016, and was nominated for a NAMMY award. ETHEL has appeared as a guest artist on over a dozen music labels, to include: Laurence Hobgood's tesseterra (label TBD, 2017); The Paha Sapa Give-Back by Jerome Kitzke (Innova, 2014); (Cold Blue Two (Cold Blue Music, 2012); Glow by Kaki King (Velour Recordings, 2012); Blue Moth by Anna Clyne (Tzadik, 2012); The Duke by Joe Jackson (Razor & Tie, 2012); A Map of the Floating City by Thomas Dolby (Redeye Label, 2011); John the Revelator: A Mass for Six Voices by Phil Kline (Cantaloupe Music, 2008) with vocal group Lionheart; and the Grammy Award-winning, Dedicated to You: Kurt Elling Sings the Music of Coltrane and Hartman (Concord Records, 2009). The quartet regularly performs works by all of the members of the ensemble, alongside music by Philip Glass, Julia Wolfe, John King, Phil Kline, David Lang, Dan Friel, John Zorn, Missy Mazzoli, Anna Clyne, Steve Reich, Don Byron, Aleksandra Vrebalov, Marcelo Zarvos, Pamela Z, Evan Ziporyn and Terry Riley. Over the past five years, ETHEL has premiered 150+ new works, many of them commissioned by the quartet. ETHEL is the Resident Ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar and Ensemble-in-Residence at Denison University, where the quartet members were awarded honorary doctorates during the 2017 commencement exercises. ETHEL is: Ralph Farris (viola), Kip Jones (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello) and Corin Lee (violin).

Dear Evan Hansen - Music Box Theatre
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

Both deeply personal and profoundly contemporary, Dear Evan Hansen is the new American musical about life and the way we live it.

Stomp - Orpheum Theatre
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

Stomp is a joyful, witty and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes—and yes, even the kitchen sink. There's no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father's life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king. A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.

Or Current Resident - Theater for the New City
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

Part of our shared experience as Americans today is how we strain under the weight of the tech sector. Millionaires are made overnight and we endure the distortions of social media while gentrification pushes us out of our homes. When that happens, it rips us away from our history as if we never mattered. That's the idea behind "Or Current Resident," a new play by Joan Bigwood, which will be performed by Squeaky Bicycle Productions from February 3 to 25 at Theater for the New City, where it is a resident company. Brandi Varnell, Artistic Director of Squeaky Bicycle, directs.

Pat Martino - Iridium
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

Pat Martino became actively involved with the early rock scene in Philadelphia, alongside stars like Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon and Bobby Darin. His first road gig was with jazz organist Charles Earland, a high school friend. His reputation soon spread among other jazz players, and he was recruited by bandleader Lloyd Price to play hits such as Stagger Lee on-stage with musicians like Slide Hampton and Red Holloway. Martino moved to Harlem to immerse himself in the "soul jazz" played by Willis "Gatortail" Jackson and others. He previously had "heard all of the so called "white" jazz. In 1976, while performing internationally with his fusion group "Joyous Lake" Martino began experiencing seizures, which were eventually diagnosed as AVM, a condition he was born with. After surgery and recovery, he resumed his career when he appeared in 1987 in New York, a gig that was released on a CD with an appropriate name, The Return. He then took another hiatus when both of his parents became ill, and he didn't record again until 1994, (after their death) when he recorded Interchange a nd then The Maker. Today, Martino lives in Philadelphia again and continues to grow as a musician. As the New York Times noted, "Mr. Martino is back and he is plotting new musical direc tions, adding more layers to his myth." His experiments with guitar synthesizers, (begun during his rehabilitation) are taking him in the direction of orchestral arra ngements and they promise groundbreaking possibilities. Musicians flock to his door for lessons, and he offers not only the benefits of his musical knowledge, but als o the philosophical insights of a man who has faced and overcome enormous obstacles. "The guitar is of no great importance to me," he muses. "The people it brings to me are what matter. They are what I'm extremely grateful for, because they are alive. The guitar is just an apparatus."

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum - BayWay Arts Center
Through February 25, 2018 - East Islip

Broadway's greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom.

"Josh: The Black Babe Ruth" - Theater For The New City
Through February 25, 2018 - New York City

The play dramatizes the life, loves and ultimately the tragic decline of Josh Gibson, who was perhaps the greatest slugger of the Negro leagues and who, some say, died of a broken heart in 1947, a short step from his prime as a player. The play, based on real events, shows Gibson struggling heroically to make it into the Big Leagues with emotional support from his good friend, the legendary pitcher Satchel Paige, and from the two women who are rivals for his heart--his common law wife and his mistress. Despite his majestic on-field performance, there are immovable obstacles, including resistance to Black players by Major League club owners and Gibson's own personal demons, which suffocate his chances.

Their servants, both named Dromio, are also long-separated identical twins.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical - Stephen Sondheim Theatre
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

The fascinating life of one of pop music's greatest performers and songwriters takes center stage in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. The show begins just before Brooklyn native Carol Klein composes her first hit song, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," in 1959 when she is 17, pregnant and newly married to 20-year-old lyricist Gerry Goffin. In the decade that follows, King and Goffin produce a string of classic hits while forming a lasting friendship with another composing couple, Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann.

Pollock [Us Premiere] - Abrons Art Center

Or Current Resident - Theater for the New City
Through February 25, 2018 - East Village

Presented by Theater for the New City and Squeaky Bicycle Productions Part of our shared experience as Americans today is how we strain under the weight of the tech sector. Millionaires are made overnight and we endure the distortions of social media while gentrification pushes us out of our homes. When that happens, it rips us away from our history as if we never mattered. That's the idea behind "Or Current Resident," a new play by Joan Bigwood, which will be performed by Squeaky Bicycle Productions from February 3 to 25 at Theater for the New City, where it is a resident company. Brandi Varnell, Artistic Director of Squeaky Bicycle, directs. The play is set in a Silicon Valley bungalow, from which three generations of the Finch family are in constant fear of being uprooted. The family patriarch, an engineer, has passed on, and the resilient matriarch, Mimi, holds the household together in cramped and rambunctious harmony. Everyone pools their earnings to rent month-to-month from a landlord who is yielding to the tech-driven real estate market. Ironically, the tech sector both suppresses and sustains the Finches, since their primary breadwinners--Mimi's two daughters--make their livings off it. Lynn, an aspiring realtor, white-knuckles a marginal living based on housing turnover. Jill, an agoraphobic technical writer, earns meager fees writing user manuals from home. Jill has twin 16 year-olds: Mason, a budding film maker bewitched by war movies, and Molly, an addict to social media. Both teens are being bullied in school. This crowded household becomes explosive when Ted, Mimi's ex-con son, is released from prison and tries to fit himself back into the family unit. While Mimi uses her optimistic disposition to steer her family through hardships, she may finally be outmatched. The fragility of the family's finances challenges the earning power of Lynn and Jill. There is great personal drama in the struggles of Mason, Molly and Ted. The teens are outsiders, ostracised from their peer groups. Crisis ensues for Molly when she is ambushed on social media. Ted is straining to reintegrate into society and clings desperately to the life lessons in serenity that he learned in prison. He struggles to defend Molly in her Facebook fracas but fumbles awkwardly in his attempts to help her. Mason, fighting for his own self-image, attempts to stage a backyard combat scene for a video project that could gain him some respect. Of all the Finches, Jill provides the most formidable challenge to her family. She is battling mental illness and struggling to reclaim ownership of her circumstances. Who will have the resources to take care of her when Mimi is gone? The dramedy reveals a family in crisis as it lies shivering in the cold glare of untenable revelations. Silicon Valley, which they can no longer afford, threatens to ultimately expel their family together with its history. The play's themes carry very real stakes, but its characters are endearing and drawn with wit. The piece was inspired by stories and events of playwright Joan Bigwood's earlier life in Palo Alto and her friendship with a fellow writer, now deceased, who went to prison for a crime he didn't commit. The play was developed as part of Squeaky Bicycle's 2016 Reading Lab under the guidance of the Company's resident dramaturg, Kathryn McConnell. Director Brandi Varnell has cast the nuclear family non-traditionally, as the experiences of the Finch family are universal. She explains, "The issues this family face--finances, gentrification, mental illness, criminality, school bullying--are common to all of us. As soon as you say they are somebody else's problem, they will affect you too. The more you look at the commonality of these issues, the more empathetic you will be." The very realistic set by Meg McGuigan will highlight the family's history in the home and their relationship to technology in all its forms. Playwright Joan Bigwood, currently a resident of Newmarket, NH, is a graduate of Smith College who studied scriptwriting under Olwen Wymark in London. A flair for doggerel earned her an international prize sponsored by Givenchy and inspired the book and lyrics to "Hats Off!," a show about a London hat shop that was shortlisted for the prestigious Vivian Ellis Prize and staged by Nantucket Theatre Workshop in 2016. Her first novel, "Co-opted," won an IndieReader Discovery Award in 2011. Unfinished works include "First Person Plural," a two-woman dramedy about the Mexican-American experience, and a novel about the working poor in America. Director Brandi Varnell is a director, Equity actress and co-founder of Squeaky Bicycle Productions. She has directed the company's productions of "Alligator Summer" by Dylan Lamb and "Lumbricus Terrestris" by Emily Daly. She holds a BA in Theatre from The New School and sits on the board of the Weathervane Theater Alumni Association. Betty Hudson (who appeared in "George M" on Broadway) plays the matriarch, Mimi Finch. Bettina Goolsby plays Lynn, the realtor. Krystle N. Adams plays Jill, mother of the teenage twins. Curry Whitmire plays Mason and Carly King plays Molly. Michael Vitaly Sazanov plays Ted, the ex-con. Set design is by Meg McGuigan. Lighting design is by S. "Stoli" Stolnack. Sound design is by Megan Culley. Squeaky Bicycle (www.squeakybicycleproductions.com), founded in 2010 and dedicated to new works, is now a resident company of Theater for the New City.

Admission to Icp Museum - ICP Museum
Through February 25, 2018 - New York

British photographer Edmund Clark has spent ten years exploring structures of power and control in the so-called global War on Terror. Edmund Clark: The Day the Music Died presents photographic, video, and installation work focusing on the measures deemed necessary to protect citizens from the threat of international terrorism. It also explores the far-reaching effects of such methods of control on issues of security, secrecy, legality, and ethics. From Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan to extraordinary rendition and the CIA's secret prison program, Clark's work finds new ways to visualize the processes, sites, and experiences associated with the United States' response to international terrorism. His engagement with military and state censorship defines the secrecy and denial around these subjects. Through photographs and declassified documents, Clark reveals how the unexpected connections between those who exercise control and those who are subject to it bring this covert torture trail to a human level. He highlights the everyday veneers under which purveyors of detention and interrogation operate in plain sight, brings light to the processes beneath, and reflects on how terror impacts us all by altering fundamental aspects of our society and culture. Organized by Director of Exhibitions and Collections Erin Barnett, this is Clark's first major solo exhibition in the United States.

Through February 25, 2018 - Manhattan

It's always a special occasion whenever the great Carmen Lundy takes the stage at Jazz Standard. In 2017, Carmen released Code Noir, an album that many fans and critics consider her finest recording to date. "These songs encompass the musical and artistic influences from the African diaspora and its influence on jazz and other musical genres – the bossa nova, the blues, swing, funk, the exploration into the avant–garde," said Carmen at the time of her self–penned album's release. "Yet they also encompass the many emotions that are currently prevalent in this country. We are going through tough times with a country that is sorely divided and many of these tracks reflect the feelings that we as human beings are going through on an individual level." One of the most expressive artists of our time is back at Jazz Standard – don't miss her! "Lundy's ruggedly conversational lyrics and welcome social commentary inhabit territory Abbey Lincoln and Marvin Gaye both might recognize. Her voice swoops down and provides a focal point. It's sensuality. It's wisdom, it's curiosity – they all roll into a fetching package." Carmen Lundy - vocals Patrice Rushen - piano Andrew Renfroe - guitar Kenny Davis - bass Kendrick Scott - drums

In the few short weeks before the conference, Janice must learn to do interdisciplinary science. Will she publish, or will she perish!? Andrew Goldman (Writer) joined the inaugural Presidental Scholars in Society and Neuroscience class after receiving his PhD in Cognition of Musical Improvisation from the University of Cambridge. His research explores the subtle effects of improvisation in music and daily life. A pianist since the age of five, Andrew has extensive classical musical training. Jenna Hoffman (Director) is a Chicago native and proud graduate of New York University. She is thrilled to be working with Andrew and the Center for Science and Society on this project!

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through February 26, 2018 - New York

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons—the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group—with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public.

It is the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with show folk and the people who love them. Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. Legendary showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan. Musical Director Billy Stritch holds court at the ivories, along with Steve Doyle on bass, and Daniel Glass on drums...but the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Broadway legends, jazzers, cabaret divas, starry-eyed tourists and kids right off the bus take to the stage and entertain each other.

Times Square Arts has announced that collaborators ArandaLasch + Marcelo Coelho are the winners of this year’s annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design curated by the Design Trust for Public Space. This year’s winning design, Window to the Heart, will be unveiled on February 1st. The installation will remain on view for the month of February. This marks the 10th anniversary of the Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition, an annual event where Times Square Arts invites architecture and design firms to submit proposals for a public art installation celebrating Love in Times Square in February. In one of the world’s most Instagrammed places, filled with cameras of all shapes and sizes, Window to the Heart places the world’s largest lens in the center of Times Square. The 12 foot in diameter Fresnel lens was designed with 3D-printing manufacturer Formlabs to distort and capture the image of Times Square, optically bending light – and attention – to the heart-shaped window at its center. Visitors can look through the window or photograph themselves within it, completing the loop between the lens of the eye and the lens of the camera. Rather than using the traditional lens-making methods of casting, cutting, and repeatedly polishing glass, Window to the Heart will leverage the latest advances in design, materials, and fabrication to craft something that was previously unattainable. Each lens segment is 3D-printed at a high resolution by Formlabs using clear resin, a material capable of the unique surface quality and clarity required by optical elements. With the lens made entirely from a 3D-printed material instead of glass, Window to the Heart upends the centuries-old methods of lens-making to invite individuals to reimagine how they see and photograph the world.

A Case for Magic, A Comedy Magic Show at the Frigid Fringe Festival - The Kraine Theater
Through March 02, 2018 - New York

Award winning magician, Robert Malissa, puts the art of the trick on trial. He will lie, cheat, and smile as he presents sleight of hand, mentalism, and sneaky swindles, all while making a case of the craft of deception. A fair and balanced examination of the art, for lovers of magic and their ambivalent friends. Native Philadelphian, Robert Malissa, was setting up for his street show a few years back when a passerby said, "Hey a magician, the lowest form of entertainment!" That statement was the inspiration for his show, "A Case for Magic", at the upcoming NYC Frigid Fringe Festival. The show takes direct aim at the view of magic as a tacky art, or that tricks are only for kids. Sometimes comic, sometimes poetic, Malissa's original presentations of sleight of hand, mentalism, and general sneaky stuff, support his point of view. It has been said, "There are many rooms in the house of magic." Acting as your congenial tour guide, Malissa shows you his favorite places. Rob Malissa started magic at age 12 and has performed for many years. His early start was the birthday circuit, then street magic in Philadelphia, and Europe after college. Along the way, he garnered a first place award from the Philadelphia Houdini Club and two more awards from the Philadelphia Society of American Magicians. After a successful run at the 2017 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, it is now time to bring his show to NYC. Malissa will be performing six shows at the NYC 2018 Frigid Fringe Festival. Kraine Theater, 85 East 4th Street, Between 2nd & 3rd Aves. (Bowery), First Floor, (no wheelchair access), (212) 777-6088.

Sound House - The Flea Theater
Through March 03, 2018 - New York

SOUND HOUSE is inspired by the haunted and often funny sound worlds of idiosyncratic 20th century British composer Daphne Oram, inventor of Oramics, a precursor to the synthesizer. This multi-strand sound-generating machine serves as a structural model for an architectonic play in which disparate eras, worlds and time signatures collide as Daphne’s present-day alter ego, Constance Sneed, investigates the condition of invisibility that plagues her, too, and envisions a world in which old ladies do not die alone or forgotten. The collaborators have developed the play not only as text but as a “multidimensional object” -- precisely constructed yet constantly shifting -- in which sound not only carves out story, but functions as an experiential road map to the distortions of time and space that are central to Oram's ideas. Their mission: create a true “sound house,” an immersive sonic experience. The cast for SOUND HOUSE will feature Vicky Finney Crouch (Piper Theatre Productions), James Himelsbach (The Talking Band’s The Room Sings at LaMama; The Assembly’s I Will Look Forward to This Later at The New Ohio), and Susanna Stahlmann (Hedda Gabler with Wandering Bark Theatre). The design team will include Sound Design by Tyler Kieffer and Brandon Wolcott (Signature Plays at Signature Theatre Company; The Profane at Playwrights Horizons), Set Design by Marsha Ginsberg (Master at The Foundry Theater; Angel Reapers with Signature Theater), Costume Design by Olivera Gajic (God’s Ear with New Georges/Vineyard Theater; This Was the End at The Chocolate Factory), Lighting Design by Kate McGee (The Hunger Artist at The Tank; My Lingerie Play at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater), and Movement by Brendan Spieth (Those Lost Boys: 10 Year Reunion at Ars Nova). Performances will be Tuesday, February 20 at 8pm, Wednesday, February 21 at 7pm, Saturday, February 24 at 2pm & 7pm, Sunday, February 25 at 2pm, Thursday, March 1 at 7pm, Friday, March 2 at 3pm, Saturday, March 3 at 7pm, and Sunday, March 4 at 2pm.

Gypsy: A Musical Fable - The Secret Theatre
Through March 03, 2018 - Long Island

Gypsy is a 1959 musical with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents. Gypsy is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous striptease artist, and focuses on her mother, Rose, whose name has become synonymous with "the ultimate show business mother." It follows the dreams and efforts of Rose to raise two daughters to perform onstage and casts an affectionate eye on the hardships of show business life. The character of Louise is based on Lee, and the character of June is based on Lee's sister, the actress June Havoc. The musical contains many songs that became popular standards, including "Everything's Coming up Roses", "Together (Wherever We Go)", "Small World", "You Gotta Get a Gimmick", "Let Me Entertain You", "All I Need Is the Girl", and "Rose's Turn". It is frequently considered one of the crowning achievements of the mid-20th century's conventional musical theatre art form, often called the "book musical".

Disco Pigs - Irish Repertory Theater
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

Born at the same time on the same day in the same hospital, Pig and Runt have been inseparable ever since. They speak in their own language, play by their own rules, and create a world for themselves in which boundaries blur between truth and illusion. Until, on their seventeenth birthday, they discover something more. As night falls, and the disco and drink take hold, they spiral violently out of control. Enda Walsh's breathtaking breakthrough play, Disco Pigs, "didn't so much debut at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe, as erupt there." (The Guardian). Marking the 20th anniversary of its explosive British debut, Disco Pigs comes to the Irish Repertory Theatre starring Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter, My Name is Emily) and Colin Campbell (Dublin by Lamplight, Through A Glass Darkly).

This is the Color Described by the Time - The Flea Theater
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

In THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, collaboratively created by the performance laboratory Door 10, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein’s repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape. THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME is a fractured journey through Stein’s daily routine in France during World War II as she struggles with writer’s block, listens to the radio, shares a meal with Alice B. Toklas, and confronts her own mortality. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein’s forgotten politics and raises questions about the inextricable link between the political, personal, and artistic. The cast for THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME will feature Stephanie Roth-Haberle (Drama Desk Award nominee for Artist Descending a Staircase; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Christina Rouner (The Malcontent with Red Bull Theater; Coram Boy on Broadway), Ean Sheehy (Red-Eye to Havre de Grace at New York Theater Workshop; Shrunken Heads at Playwrights Horizons), and Ben Williams (Gatz with Elevator Repair Service; A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes with New Georges/Women’s Project). The design team will include Sound Design by Ben Williams (Elevator Repair Service), Costume Design by Alice Tavener (PIONEERS#goforth at Jack; I’m Bleeding All Over at LaMama), Lighting Design by Reza Behjat (Tear a Root from the Earth at the New Ohio) and Set Design by Amy Rubin (Miles for Mary with The Mad Ones at Bushwick Starr/Playwrights Horizons; How to Live on Earth with Colt Coeur) with Associate Director Jim Dawson and Door 10 line producer and co-founder Sarah Peterson. Performances will be Wednesday, February 14 at 7pm, Thursday, February 22 at 7pm, Friday, February 23 at 3pm & 8pm, Sunday, February 25 at 7pm, Tuesday, February 27 at 7pm, Wednesday, February 28 at 7pm, Friday, March 2 at 8pm, and Saturday, March 3 at 2pm.

Roots of 'The Dinner Party': History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum
Through March 04, 2018 - Prospect Heights

Roots of "The Dinner Party": History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago's evolving plans for The Dinner Party in depth, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork, a triumph of community art-making, and a testament to the power of historical revisionism. Chicago's ambitious research project combatted the absence of women from mainstream historical narratives and blazed the trail for feminist art historical methodologies in an era of social change. It also validated mediums traditionally considered the domain of women and domestic labor, as the artist studied and experimented with China painting, porcelain, and needlework. The exhibition presents rarely seen test plates, research documents, ephemera, notebooks, and preparatory drawings from 1971 through 1979 alongside The Dinner Party, encouraging exploration of its formal, conceptual, and material progress.

WE tv's Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria - Times Square
Through March 04, 2018 - New York

New York City is home to some of the world's most renowned museums and now there's a new one coming to town. One that will appeal to tourists and locals alike, and anyone – groom, friend or family – who's participated in or witnessed the high-stakes, high-tension ritual of wedding planning. It's the Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria, an expansive, free of charge, Instagram-worthy attraction opening Friday, February 23 at 4 Times Square, created by WE tv to mark the reboot and return of one of reality TV's pioneering series, "Bridezillas," which premieres on Friday March 2 at 10 pm ET/PT. "In its initial 10-year run, 'Bridezillas' was a phenomenon, cementing in popular culture, and Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, a lexicon for that life milestone that sometimes transforms mild-mannered women into unnaturally obsessive and intolerably demanding brides-to-be," said Marc Juris, President of WE tv. "WE tv viewers have been calling for us to bring back the series since we wrapped it up in 2013; and we're answering their call –, not only with new fresh and frantic episodes of their beloved show, but a full scale museum in the crossroads of the world – Times Square." WE tv's Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria will be housed in a 3,000 sq. ft., street-level storefront at 4 Times Square. It is slated to include: • Bridezillas Throughout History – Gawk and awe at a gallery dedicated to the baddest B's in history, revealing how the oversized expectations and behaviors of famous brides like Adam's Eve, Nefertiti and Cleopatra set the template for generations of Bridezillas to come; • 'Zilla Did What? – Come face-to-face with articles and artifacts chronicling bad bridal behaviors that seem too outrageous to be true, but are -- from the hideous hairstyles, manicures and gowns imposed upon innocent bridesmaids, to the eyesore invitations and over-the-top wedding cakes, to news articles and social media chronicling when weddings end in brawls, lawsuits and other disasters; • Channel your Inner Bridezilla – Lose yourself in a host of immersive, interactive attractions designed to allow frantic brides and tourists alike to scream, punch and vogue like a true Bridezilla, including the Rage-O-Meter Punching Bag; a Scream Booth and Cray-Cray Cranial Head Massagers, ones guaranteed to chill out the most manic Bridezilla or NYC tourist. • Do it for the 'Gram – Remember and share your experiences by taking your own tacky bridal portrait at the Bridezillas Altar of Shame, while luxuriating in a bathtub of 'diamonds', being squashed under the massive sequined stiletto of a giant Bridezilla, and more. WE tv's Bridezillas Museum of Natural Hysteria will be open to the public daily from Friday, February 23 – Sunday, March 4. Hours: Daily 11 am – 8 pm. Admission is free. WE tv's "Bridezillas" famously spotlights so-called 'normal' women who have turned into "Bridezillas" by their upcoming nuptials. Each hour-long episode will follow two hilariously unhinged brides as they hurtle toward the altar. We meet the brides and their grooms, learn their backgrounds, relationship histories, and see how the wedding has taken over their lives. As we move closer to the brides' big day, tempers and tensions flare, the patience of loved ones is tested and monumental meltdowns become inevitable as our 'Bridezillas' are pushed to the edge – all in the name of planning the 'perfect' wedding. The original "Bridezillas" series ended its run in 2013 after 10 seasons and WE tv will now launch its tenth season of the hit spinoff series "Marriage Boot Camp," which premieres in March. "Bridezillas" is executive produced by Laura Halperin. Executive Producers for WE tv are Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and Angela Molloy. About WE tv With compelling, can't miss unscripted shows, WE tv's programming is fueled by personalities and relationships filled with purpose and passion.

Winter Term Torkwase Dyson and the Wynters-Well Drawing School for Environmental Justice - The Drawing Center
Through March 09, 2018 - Soho

The Drawing Center is pleased to announce Winter Term, a new annual initiative in which the museum will partner with an artist or organization whose mission it is to explore the transformative role that drawing can play in civic and global society. The yearly program, which will consist of public events, classes, and performances as well as an exhibition, will build a community of people to investigate the efficacy of drawing as a tool for addressing inequity and encouraging social change. In a world ever more in need of human connection and compassion, Winter Term will ask how drawing, the most universal medium, might extend beyond the gallery space to provide concrete tools for collective engagement and collaboration. In this way, Winter Term provides a new model for exhibition making as well as for the role that art institutions can play in the real world. For the first session, which will take place in February and March of 2018, The Drawing Center has invited New York-based artist Torkwase Dyson to create an installation and organize a two-week series of classes, discussions, and formal experiments developed from her incipient project the Wynter-Wells Drawing School for Environmental Justice—named for Jamaican writer Sylvia Wynter and American Civil Rights leader Ida B. Wells. The School will present an experimental curriculum employing techniques culled from the visual arts as well as design theories of geography, infrastructure, engineering, and architecture to initiate dialogue about geographic genealogy in an era of global crisis due to human-induced climate change. Participation in the course will be by application with portions open to the public. During an open studio-style installation, Dyson will explicate her own formal concept of "Black Compositional Thought" while terms such as improvisation, nomadicity, and re-orientation will be applied to techniques within abstract drawing that confront issues of environmental justice and the path towards a more equitable future. Confirmed invited guests include architect Mabel Wilson, curator Rujeko Hockley, artist and designer Ekene Ijeoma, designer and educator Ronald Morrison, choreographer Dean Moss, and artist Zachery Fabri who will engage in a site-specific performance. Following the residency, the museum will release a publication with contributions from artists Dawoud Bey and Allison Janae Hamilton as well as poet Ronaldo Wilson among others. Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator.

Our exhibit, Badges of Honor: Brooklyn's Protectors, highlighting the good work that is done by every day Brooklynites, brings together items from the Brooklyn Collection's photographs, prints and ephemera collection along with 21 on-loan badges belonging to Brooklyn native, Art Sinai. The exhibit contains badges that span a century (1850 – 1950) selected from a variety of neighborhoods as well as occupations such as beach patrol, sheriffs and firefighters. Art Sinai was raised in East New York, Crown Heights and Sheepshead Bay. After graduating from Brooklyn College in 1961, he started his law enforcement career as a treasury agent. In 1977 at the age of 38 he was appointed to the Treasury Department as a deputy assistant secretary. A year later, after being gifted a badge by a classmate, Mr. Sinai started his collection. This led to a lifelong passion for collection badges, which now includes up to 8,000 federal, state, city, local and railroad badges. It also includes the largest collection of historic humane law enforcement badges in the world. Having bought, sold and traded badges for over 50 years, some of the most thrilling finds are rare badges from Brooklyn. We're pleased to announce that Mr. Sinai is also donating a portion of his collection to the Brooklyn Collection. Everyone has the potential to be someone's hero. By featuring the good work done by Brooklyn's protectors, we aim to shine a light on the everyday members of our community, who in times of trouble take on the mantle.

MoMA PS1 presents the first comprehensive retrospective of Carolee Schneemann, spanning the artist's prolific six-decade career. As one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century, Schneemann's pioneering investigations into subjectivity, the social construction of the female body, and the cultural biases of art history have had significant influence on subsequent generations of artists. Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting begins with rarely seen examples of the artist's early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into assemblages made in the 1960s, which integrated objects, mechanical elements, and modes of deconstruction. In the late 1960s Schneemann began positioning her own body within her work, performing the roles of "both image and image-maker." As a central protagonist of the New York downtown avant-garde community, she explored hybrid artistic forms culminating in experimental theater events. The exhibition considers Schneemann's oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.

Cathy Wilkes - MoMA PS1
Through March 11, 2018 - Long Island City

MoMA PS1 will present the first solo museum exhibition in New York focused on Glasgow-based artist Cathy Wilkes (b. 1966), in conjunction with the inaugural Maria Lassnig Prize. Since the start of her career in the 1990s, Wilkes has created sculptural tableaux that engage with the rituals of life. Regularly employing quotidian products and residual materials drawn from her domestic life, Wilkes's installations connect the banalities of daily existence to larger archetypes of birth, marriage, child-rearing, and death. This combination of the personal and universal parallels a meditation at the heart of her work, in which Wilkes's art enacts an exercise in empathy, exposing deeply felt subjective experiences to reach beyond herself while also insisting upon the fundamentally private nature of artmaking. Wilkes is the first artist to receive the Maria Lassnig Prize, a biennial award established by the Maria Lassnig Foundation in June 2016 to honor the achievements of mid-career artists. The Maria Lassnig Prize was originally envisioned by pioneering Austrian artist Maria Lassnig before her death in 2014 at the age of 94, at height of her artistic powers. Having achieved recognition only later in life, she hoped to encourage the efforts of fellow career artists not yet familiar to the public. In 2014, MoMA PS1 presented Maria Lassnig's first comprehensive American museum survey to universal acclaim.

This exhibition was organized by the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library as We Are One: Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence and curated at New-York Historical by Nina Nazionale, Director of Library Operations and Curator of Printed Collections. The book, Revolution: Mapping the Road to American Independence, 1755-1783, is available for purchase at the NYHistory Store. Lead support for We Are One provided by Mary Jo Otsea and Richard H. Brown. Additional support provided by the Berkley Family Foundation, Gerry Lenfest, the Sherry and Alan Leventhal Family Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel C. Butler, William B.

Platonov, or A Play with No Name - New Ohio Theatre
Through March 11, 2018 - New York

Blessed Unrest presents Platonov, or A Play with No Name Translated and adapted by Laura Wickens from the play by Anton Chekhov Directed by Jessica Burr A man of status with questionable sexual ethics runs rampage. A society fixated on the chaos of the moment ignores their collapsing economic system. A culture of open gun possession leads to rash and deadly consequences. Sounds familiar? Blessed Unrest’s raw and sexy rendition of Platonov, or A Play with No Name, in new translation and adaptation by playwright Laura Wickens, shows how Chekhov, nearly 150 years ago in Russia, was piercing through the issues that are highly relevant in America today. Her adaptation does away with all the father figures – except for the protagonist – and relocates the story to the rural South, a milieu in which the antidote to boredom is an entangled web of salacious scandals. Sometimes endearing and often reproachable, the titular character emerges as a man whose shortcomings run rampant due to enablers who surround him. Cast: Irina Abraham Chigiryov, Ashley Hildreth, Javon Minter, Darrell Stokes, Becca Schneider, and Taylor Valentine. Dramaturgy: Jessi Blue Gormezano Costume design: Sarah Thea. February 17 – March 11, 2018 Performance schedule: Sat, Feb 17, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 18, 3:00pm Thu, Feb 22, 7:00pm Fri, Feb 23, 8:00 pm Sat, Feb 24, 8:00pm Sun, Feb 25, 3:00pm Mon, Feb 26, 7:00pm Fri, March 2, 8:00pm Sat, March 3, 8:00pm Sun, March 4, 3:00pm Mon, March 5, 7:00pm Thu, March 8, 7:00 pm Fri, March 9, 8:00pm Sat, March 10, 3:00pm and 8:00pm Sun, March 11, 3:00pm

Installation - Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 13, 2018 - Queens

2014. Ezra Wube (b. 1980, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, lives in Brooklyn). Animation. 1,756 frames, photographed from canvas with oil paint. 4 minutes. Ezra Wube works with video, installation, drawing, painting, and performance. Reflecting on his identity as a person of two cultures at the intersection of tradition and modern life, Wube makes work about the uncertainty of time and place and the malleability of memory. A Memory of Astoria, commissioned by the Museum of the Moving Image, is an impressionistic portrait of the blocks surrounding this building. Wube walked the neighborhood to observe the area's confluence of cultures, focusing on everyday moments, sights, and sounds. He reconstituted these experiences into a poetic visual collage, inserting himself as a silhouetted observer exploring the memories of his walks. The production of A Memory of Astoria was an intensive, months-long process, with each frame painted in sequence on top of the last. The result is striking: street scenes assemble and disassemble, leaving visible marks of the past as if time and space have melted together. Through these impressions, Wube reveals a diverse, rapidly changing neighborhood that the Museum has called home for more than 30 years.

The recently coined "Afrofuturism" genre is referred to by The New York Times as "...a political and cultural genre that projects black space voyagers, warriors and their heroic like into a fantasy landscape, one that has long been the province of their mostly white counterparts." At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson.

Real People. Real Lives. Women Immigrants in NY - Queens Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - Flushing

Each immigrant story is a combination of determination, hope, and challenges. It is more important than ever to share our stories; our stories as immigrants, our stories as women, stories through which we can understand better, and celebrate, the diversity and commonality of human experience.

The exhibit features art and fashion photographs of 16 young immigrant women in iconic NYC spots and neighborhoods, together with audio recordings of their stories and video montages. It shows a nuanced and multi-layered picture of the immigrant women who make NYC their home, of the barriers and isolation they experience, and of the hopes, dreams, and talents they bring with them.

The exhibit seeks to reduce misconceptions and prejudice about the faces and voices of immigrant women, and aspires to raise public awareness and create positive dialogue about immigrants, and about women.

It is also important, in the current political climate and times in the United States, to give a platform for immigrant women to share their perspective, as immigrants, and as women, about their future in the United States, and the future of the country itself.

Views of Rome and Naples: Oil Sketches from the Thaw Collection - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

During the second half of the eighteenth-century, a journey to Italy was considered an essential component in the education of young artists and noblemen from Northern Europe. Although Venice and Florence were requisite stops on the journey, artists tended to make their longest stay in Rome, and they generally also spent time in Naples. Both cities offered celebrated archeological sites and a taste of the unspoiled rural life of the campagna. Working outdoors, artists recorded their observations of these natural and man-made wonders in small-scale studies, mostly executed with oil paint on paper. In these oils, painters captured the grandiosity of Rome's classical ruins and the sublime natural beauty of Naples, with its famous view of Mount Vesuvius. Artists from France, Belgium, Germany, Norway, and Sweden are featured in this selection. Views of Rome and Naples is the fifth exhibition in a series drawn from the collection of oil sketches acquired by Morgan Trustee Eugene V. Thaw and his wife, Clare. Mr. Thaw is also an honorary trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials.

Playwright Sarah Burgess (Dry Powder) and Tony-winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton, Tiny Beautiful Things, Dry Powder) team up again for KINGS, a hilariously blistering new play about money, politics and the state of the American republic. Kate is a whip-smart lobbyist who doesn't waste her time on anyone who can't get elected, stay elected and help her clients get what they want. Kate thinks Representative Sydney Millsap is a political neophyte whose staunch ideals are going to cost her a burgeoning political career. But Representative Millsap and her high-minded principles turn out to be more resilient than Washington was expecting, and for the first time Kate is faced with a choice that might change everything for her: back the system, or back what she believes in? KINGS is a scathingly funny new play about the people at the heart of our democracy.

The exhibition is curated by Joanna Scutts, Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's History, and Sarah Gordon, Senior Postdoctoral Marie Zimmermann Legacy Fellow in Women's History, under the direction of Valerie Paley, vice president, chief historian, and director of the Center for Women's History at the New-York Historical Society, and is on view in the Joyce B.

FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures - Museum of Chinese in America
Through March 25, 2018 - Manhattan

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese passengers that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA's collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. For most of these sculptures, their forms are Chinese folk art, but their subject matter is uniquely American. Idiomatic expressions and art-related theories of the "fold" as a form, action and metaphor will be used as an organizing principle for the exhibition's content and design. In addition to archive materials, recent interviews with immigration attorneys and supporters of the Golden Venture detainees will also provide multiple perspectives on the attainment of the American Dream.

The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal is the first U.S. museum exhibition to present the extraordinary drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Spain, 1852–1934), the father of modern neuroscience.

Organized by the Frederick R.

Baya: Woman of Algiers - Grey Art Gallery
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Baya: Woman of Algiers is the first North American exhibition of works by the self-taught Algerian artist Baya Mahieddine (1931–1998). Known as Baya, she was born in Bordj el-Kiffan and orphaned at age five. Encouraged by her adoptive French mother to pursue art, she began as an adolescent to paint gouaches and make ceramics. Her work was soon discovered by fabled gallerist Aimé Maeght who, along with André Breton, organized an exhibition in Paris in 1947. Baya's colorful depictions of women, rhythmic patterns, and bright palette drew the attention of Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, with whom she later collaborated in the renowned Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris. Celebrated in both Algeria and France, Baya has yet to gain international recognition. Woman of Algiers reexamines Baya's career within Surrealist, "outsider," and North-African post-colonial art contexts.

Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 - MoMA : Museum of Modern Art
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

The East Village of the 1970s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public's imagination. Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place, Club 57 (1978–83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibitions, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural venues in downtown New York fueled by low rents, the Reagan presidency, and the desire to experiment with new modes of art, performance, fashion, music, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its wake. Club 57: Film, Performance, and Art in the East Village, 1978–1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine the scene-changing, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57's founding curatorial staff—film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully, exhibition organizer Keith Haring, and performance curator Ann Magnuson—to examine how the convergence of film, video, performance, art, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. Responding to the broad range of programming at Club 57, the exhibition will present their accomplishments across a range of disciplines—from film, video, performance, and theater to photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, zines, fashion design, and curating. Building on extensive research and oral history, the exhibition features many works that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.

The Low Road - The Public Theater
Through April 01, 2018 - New York

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring sixteen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist - Grey Art Gallery
Through April 06, 2018 - New York

Fritz Ascher: Expressionist presents works by this German Jewish artist, who lived through the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and into the postwar years. After studying with Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth in Berlin, Fritz Ascher (1893–1970) traveled to Oslo, where he met Edvard Munch, and Munich, where he associated with the artists of the Blue Rider and Simplicissimus groups. His early work is steeped in old myths, spirituality, and reflections on the human condition. From 1933 he was forbidden to produce, exhibit, or sell his art. Briefly interned at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in 1938, he survived the Nazi era mostly in hiding, writing poetry. After 1945 he returned to painting, expressing his inner turmoil in colorful, mystical landscapes devoid of human figures. The exhibition comprises 75 paintings and works on paper, ranging from Ascher's early academic studies to his final landscapes. Fritz Ascher: Expressionist is organized by the Fritz Ascher Society for Persecuted, Ostracized and Banned Art, Inc., and accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through April 07, 2018 - New York

Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor's legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini's lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world's leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will place front and center Toscanini's recordings through ongoing live demonstrations and free public programs devoted to the craft of preserving and archiving the technology he helped define during his lifetime.

Through April 08, 2018 -

Drawn primarily from MoMA's collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989 brings artworks produced using computers and computational thinking together with notable examples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The artists featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerging technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. They channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture, plotter drawing, computer animation, and video installation. Photographers and architects likewise recognized these technologies' capacity to reconfigure human communities and the built environment. Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller, Waldemar Cordeiro, Charles Csuri, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, Beryl Korot, Vera Molnár, Cedric Price, and Stan VanDerBeek, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Machines Corporation, IBM, Olivetti, and Apple Computer. The exhibition combines artworks, design objects, and architectural proposals to trace how computers transformed aesthetics and hierarchies, revealing how these thinking machines reshaped art making, working life, and social connections.

It presents a broad repertory of choral-orchestral works; seldom-performed works from many stylistic periods; opera-in-concert; American music theatre; and contemporary works, including commissions by the Chorale for its Lincoln Center Season.

National Chorale's contracts with the NYC Department of Education provide year-long artist-in-residence programs for elementary, middle and high schools throughout the city.

The Bench, A Homeless Love Story - East Village Playhouse
Through April 13, 2018 - East Village

The Off-Broadway hit The Bench starring Robert Galinsky, directed by Jay O. Sanders, will extend its sold out run at The East Village Playhouse. This production is being presented by Golden Globe Nominated Chris Noth, Drama Desk, Obie, Olivier Award winner Barry Shabaka Henley and produced by Tony Award winning producer Terry Schnuck. Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDs in the 1980s. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery, from Daphne Arthur’s graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world re-known composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. It’s a unique and fresh solo theatre piece wherein one actor plays five characters, written in dialogue form, not traditional ‘monologue black out, monologue black out’ traditional solo theatre form.

Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

Conflating narrative tropes and methods from television sitcoms, theater, science fiction, mythology, and anthropology, Mellors writes the scripts for each of his projects, which he also directs, edits, and produces. His raucous films feature a book-eating creature named "The Object" who literally digests a family's library in Ourhouse (2010–ongoing); a Neanderthal in perpetual free-fall over the San Joaquin Valley in Neanderthal Container, (2014); and two messianic beings, in the form of a cardboard box and a giant egg, who attempt to make sense of a culture that they created millions of years prior in The Aalto Natives (2017, in collaboration with Erkka Nissinen, originally conceived for the Finnish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale). For his exhibition at the New Museum, Mellors will create a new environment including video projection and animatronic sculpture. "Nathaniel Mellors: Progressive Rocks" is curated by Margot Norton, Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Nathaniel Mellors was born in 1974 in Doncaster, UK, and lives and works in Los Angeles and Amsterdam. Solo exhibitions include the Box, Los Angeles (2016); Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw (2014); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2014); Galway Arts Centre, Ireland (2013); Baltimore Museum of Art (2013); Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2012); Cobra Museum, Amstelveen, Netherlands (2011); and Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2011).

Mellors and Finnish artist Erkka Nissenen represented Finland at the 57th Venice Biennale with their collaborative video installation The Aalto Natives (2017).

Alexandra Pirici - New Museum
Through April 15, 2018 - Lower East Side

Her new project for the New Museum takes the form of an ongoing action with live performers and one holographic performer. The project approaches the concept of presence in an expanded sense, focusing in particular on its increasing dispersion. In Pirici's ongoing action—conceived especially for the New Museum's South Galleries—presence is revealed in a variety of ways: as physical body as well as artificial stand-in, avatar, and ghost, taking on the character of a memorial or monument; as image and abstraction of the living subject into quantifiable, monetizable data; and as the expanded life of "dead" objects in museum collections—using the presence of live performers to challenge their stable state and static interpretation. This new work continues Pirici's recent interrogations into the collective body through choreographies that link different temporal and spatial events in real time. In the work, performers embody amalgamated parts, intersecting with each other yet separately manipulable. Pirici's project attempts to enact the dispersion of presence and to comment on contemporary processes of abstraction that separate sign from substance and image from material support. Proposing a distributed occupation of space and time, the work functions as one monstrous, modular organism made of living and digital matter. The exhibition is curated by Helga Christoffersen, Assistant Curator, and will be on view in the New Museum's recently inaugurated South Galleries, a space designated for premiering new productions at the Museum. The South Galleries preserve the character of the building's loft spaces, where many artists historically worked and exhibited. Alexandra Pirici was born in 1982 in Bucharest, Romania, where she lives and works. Her work has recently been presented at n.b.k, Berlin (2017); Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017); the Berlin Biennial (2016); Tate Modern, London, and Tate Liverpool (2016); OFF-Biennale Budapest (2015); the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2015); Manifesta 10, St. Petersburg (2014); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); and Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2014). In collaboration with artist Manuel Pelmu?, she represented Romania at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013). In 2015, she received the Excellence Award of the National Dance Center, Bucharest.
