PnB Rock - Catch These Vibes Tour - Irving Plaza
March 14, 2018 - New York

R&B music isn't all flowers and candy; just ask Rakim "PnB Rock" Allen. The 23-year-old singer's earliest inspiration didn't come from the bedroom, but from the streets. "At first I would look at R&B artists like they're all about love, and soft. Then I saw you could be a street boy and sing and still be hot. I knew I could do that shit," he says. PnB Rock hails from Pastorius and Baynton Streets in the Germantown section of Philadelphia — that's where he found the "P" and "B" in his name. That's also where he found himself in a bit of trouble. When Rock was 13 years old, he got sent away to a youth detention program for fighting in school and committing robberies. When Rock turned 19, he was sent to prison; it was there where he learned to blend calming melodies with hard street stories. "There were people up there singing in the yard. They were doing the same thing that I was doing, but they were serious with it," he remembers. "There would be crowds around them and that was our entertainment, everybody loved it." PnB wrote his entire first mixtape RNB (Real Nigga Bangaz), while he was locked up and eventually released in 2014. "My first mixtape was highly anticipated in my city and I drove around selling them hand-to-hand," he says, remarking that he barely made any money off the sales after he factored in the cost of gas. "It was all love because people got to take pictures and meet me face-to-face." The bubbling singer/songwriter explored his musical side; a side which was fueled by his mother's massive CD collection which included albums from the Temptations as well as 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Jay Z. "My whole life I was surrounded by music. I didn't really like anything else," he says. "I didn't watch cartoons, I didn't play sports, I just liked music, money and girls." When RNB2 dropped in February 2015, Rock's loyal following had propelled him way past his native Philly blocks.

Nightwish - PlayStation Theater
March 14, 2018 - New York

Decades North America 2018 "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." Charles Darwin, "On The The Origin Of Species" "This classic quote is where it all began. We set sail for the ultimate journey in March 2015, join us!" Tuomas Holopainen A new era begins NIGHTWISH has always stood for virtuoso perfection. They are able to evoke fantastic dream worlds, fade out time and space, and touch you deep inside with their majestic symphonic compositions. Vision and temptation, love and passion, devotion and blood – this Finnish band also has the courage to aspire to new creative and innovative ventures. Since their formation in August 1996, they have risen long ago to become the biggest Symphonic Metal band. It is no secret that main composer and keyboard player Tuomas Holopainen is a versatile songwriter, who lives for his music, dedicates himself to his art and this seeps through in every single note of his work. Four years have passed since the gigantic 'Imaginaerum' album - a lot has happened and still even more will happen, because the time is right for a new chapter in the history of the Suomi-Symphonics. A chapter, which will set new standards and will start a magic trip into a spectacular parallel universe; so overwhelming, so epic, so beguiling. NIGHTWISH connect past, present and future to a flawless whole. It is a time for a new era. It is a time for Endless Forms Most Beautiful.

Willy Porter & Carmen Nickerson - Cutting Room
March 14, 2018 - New York

Midwest artists Willy Porter and Carmen Nickerson are an exciting addition to the indie-duo scene. With their liquid harmonies and unassailable, playful performance chemistry, these two solo artists have joined their unique talents to create the unforgettable sound of Porter Nickerson. Porter has been turning first time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. His blistering guitar playing and rich songwriting provides the perfect architecture to support Nickerson's lush vocals, complimenting and elevating Porter's songs to make them feel both fresh and timeless. The pair first collaborated on the 2013 EP Cheeseburgers and Gasoline and again on Porter's 2015 record Human Kindness. In 2016 the duo performed as the featured musical guests on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion. Porter Nickerson are excited to bring listeners Bonfire to Ash-- their first album of original co-writes produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonathan Brooke). Bonfire to Ash charts experiences that bridge the intimate with the universal. From the thirsty shoots of new love ("Old Red Barn"), to the urgency to save love from skidding out of reach forever ("Loving On Her Mind"), and again in the anthemic elegy to relationships and legacies forged in America's heartland on the song "Living Proof." Porter and Nickerson perfect a unique dialogue through the songs on this record that carries over into their unassailable stage chemistry. Together these highly accomplished artists take audiences on a singular musical ride full of heart, grit, energy, and fun that showcases the best of what live music has to offer. Press Quotes: "Ash burns brightest when Porter and Nickerson share their voices and different perspectives of a lonely relationship on "Echo of Love."" -Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's an amazing guitar player, singer and songwriter. (Carmen Nickerson) produces a very smooth, accurate harmonic blend with him. Did I say I liked this? I REALLY do." –Al Kooper, music legend/producer on Cheeseburgers and Gasoline "Willy is an entertaining performer, an excellent guitarist, and someone who obviously loves what he does." –No Depression "Willy bursts through our traditional ideas of singer songwriters by breaking through the clutter. Willy needs to be heard." -Bruce Warren, WXPN "Porter accentuates well - rendered tales with spit - fire - percussive acoustic guitar strumming and fiery color - chord picking." -Billboard

Benjamin Sutin - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 14, 2018 - New York

Beth Ditto: Ssion - Brooklyn Steel
March 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

It's tempting to set up a grand introduction for Beth Ditto on the occasion of her solo debut after disbanding the Gossip, but this native Arkansan can say so much in a few swaggerful lines over a pounding kick drum and bone-rattling bass guitar: "Two sisters, four brothers/Hard worker, like my mother/Not bitter, so sweet/Strawberry ca-ca-canned peach!" Those lyrics (from the Jacknife Lee cowrite "Oo La La") contain the fundamentals of Ditto's album Fake Sugar: family strength, punky grit, unabashed Southernness and the rural-rags-to-rock-royalty story of our hostess, who here turns strive and strife into music that is honeyed and familiar. Over an overhauled mashup of driving blues, malt-shop pop, swooning rock and countrified soul produced by Jennifer Decilveo (Andra Day, Ryn Weaver), Ditto approaches love, loss, looking back and moving forward with all the sexiness, poignancy, power and beauty you'd hope to hear from such an iconoclastic artist. To say Fake Sugar was born of change is understatement. "It's my divorce, isn't it?" asks Ditto. "I was going through a breakup with the loves of my life. Gossip was the longest relationship I'd ever had." At the same time, she got married, literally, to her best friend since she was 18. And while Ditto and her new wife did settle somewhat into domesticity at home in Portland — their two cats, Tofu and Butters, and Ditto's crochet habit are well documented on Instagram — the singer was busy doing much more than singing. Sure, she recorded with Blondie, disco legend Cerrone, and drumstep DJ Netsky, and even moonlit as a wedding singer with Cat Power, but Ditto also made strides into fashion. She launched her eponymous plus-sized luxury line with a Jean Paul Gaultier collaboration, posed in an Alexander Wang portrait series, modeled for Marc Jacobs on the runway and in print, and appeared in Tom Ford's Oscar-nominated Nocturnal Animals. "I don't think about that stuff like, 'This is good for my career.'" says Ditto. "It's like, 'This'll be hilarious fun.'" But all that paved the way for the fierce voice and strutting presence that opens this album.

Taysir Batniji: Home Away from Home - Aperture

Join Aperture and the Fondation d'entreprise Hermès for the opening reception of Home Away from Home by Taysir Batniji, the third recipient of the Immersion, a French American Photography Commission program. Palestinian French artist Taysir Batniji brings together photographs, selections from family archives, drawings, and writings to explore the sense of dislocation and the different ideas of "home" experienced by various members of his family who immigrated to the United States from the Middle East. The work Batniji has created during visits to Florida and California strives to connect to and understand his "American cousins" through their daily lives, the objects that surround them, and the homes they have made. The resulting photographs and portraits, interviews, and sketches from memory of the family homestead in Gaza question what it means to share a history—even among relative strangers—and what happens to a sense of past and of belonging when opting for new identities and homes. Home Away from Home is a singular and intimate portrait of Batniji's own familial diaspora.

Join author Steve Massa for a celebration of some of the funniest women of the silent era. Female comedians like Alice Howell, Gale Henry, and Wanda Wiley were some of the most beloved stars of early cinema, and their films are now being rediscovered by a new generation of film fans.

HOW STARS ARE MADE Alice Howell (aka "The Scream of the Screen") is a poor working girl who decides to break into the movies. Detailed are her attempts to get through the front gate, and there is real behind-the-scenes footage of the L-Ko Comedy Studio and an LA floral parade. (US, 1916, 20 min., NR | Dir. John G. Blystone)

In HER ANNIVERSARIES, the "Mrs." drives the "Mr." crazy with her numerous commemorative events. (US 1917, 10 min., NR | Dir. Sidney Drew & Lucille McVey)

Paul Richard: Negative Man - 212 Arts
Through March 14, 2018 - New York

212 Arts is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Paul Richard's work entitled "Negative Man". The exhibit marks the first occasion that Paul's vivid portraiture will be in dialogue with his street work. While his portraiture is elaborate and cerebral, his street art possesses a playful sense of spontaneity and quickness as he manages to capture the quintessential short-hand features of his subjects with nothing more than a dripped contour line of paint. Paul's sidewalk drips have been captivating New Yorkers for over 25 years and have endured with lasting popularity. The recognizability of his work is a testament to Richard's creativity in and out of the gallery and as such has earned him accolades in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Vogue, the Huffington Post, Architectural Digest, and Time Magazine. His collectors have come to include: Marc Jacobs, Beyonce, Jay-Z, John Varvatos, Justin Bieber, Elton John, Gerard Butler, and Christina Aguilera among many others. His work is also in the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Art Boston and the Fisher-Landau Museum to name a few.

Ben Gurion's Epilogue: The Lost Interview - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
March 14, 2018 - New York

The Old Man, as David Ben Gurion was affectionately called, was living in self- imposed exile in the Negev when a British-Israeli film crew convinced him to sit for a lengthy personal interview with a young American named Clinton Bailey, an immigrant from Buffalo who'd been befriended by Ben Gurion's wife a year earlier. Ben Gurion was 82 years old, troubled by an aching back, still recovering from the recent death of his wife and worried whether his progeny would ever become the am s'gula—the nation of higher virtue—he'd envisioned.Few inside or outside Israel learned of Ben Gurion's personal woes, or his concerns about Israel's future, because the footage gathered dust for 48 years…until two Israeli filmmakers stumbled on it in the bowels of Jerusalem's Steven Spielberg Film Archive. The 35mm film had no sound, and the filmmakers doggedly traced the audio to a different archive. Finally, they stitched together the images and sound of the six-hour interview into a rivetingly intimate documentary that captures both the vision and humility of Israel's Founding Father.

Work as Emancipation or Emancipation from Work? - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall
March 14, 2018 - New York

Women's economic empowerment has now become a buzzword both in international institutions and policymaking, with the SDGs making it a priority. Economists and policymakers have generally considered greater labor force participation as the primary channel through which such empowerment can be achieved. But is more work necessarily the answer? Considering that poor women from the South have always worked excessively long hours, that the nature of work itself is often degrading, exploitative and poorly paid, and that most women work a double day, is this emphasis on work as empowerment misplaced? Given the rapid rise of robotic and AI technologies that threaten future job creation particularly in exports, can we imagine alternative paths to economic empowerment that recognize women's 'invisible' labor? What role do a Universal Basic Income and other social protection schemes play in this regard? Is it possible to reimagine work as an aesthetic and creative category rather than simply a category of capitalist production? How can feminist economics contribute to this discussion? This panel will reflect on women and work from different perspectives and debate this issue through brief presentations and interaction.

The Cover of Life - Gene Frankel Theatre
March 14, 2018 - New York

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

March 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

Their work also displays the vitality of the visual arts in their communities. Through the exhibition, exhibition catalogue, and public programs, Bordering the Imaginary will reveal the complexities of a historically shifting transnational border space and the formation of distinct but intertwined nations.

McCoy Tyner - Blue Note Jazz Club
Through March 14, 2018 - New York

Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner is widely considered one of the finest and most influential pianists in jazz history. His signature booming left-hand and fleeting right created a unique sound that can be heard on his recordings as a sideman with the John Coltrane Quartet in the 1960s and on his 80-plus albums as a leader. Tyner's most recent project for McCoy Tyner Music/Half Note Records is his first solo effort in almost a decade titled Solo: Live From San Francisco. The release is the third for his label and features eleven solo vignettes recorded at the Herbst Theater in 2007.

Crowbar, More TBA at Brooklyn Bazaar - Saint Vitus Bar
March 14, 2018 - Brooklyn

1989. That's 24 long years ago. Countless memories. Some still vivid, most just a blur. The one constant thing has been my focus and desire. The same vision I had in '89 is still burning strong in my head. Possibly stronger than ever. When you put this much blood, sweat and tears into something you can never look back. Fueled by the down-tuned sludge of the Melvins and the over-the-top aggression of Peter Steele's Carnivore, I set out to create my own beast and Crowbar was born. The band's sound was labeled Doom-Core by the European press shortly after the debut release of OBEDIENCE THRU SUFFERING. I found it to be quite fitting then and still do honestly. Crowbar have released 9 full length cd's, the second selling over 100,000 units worldwide. We threw in a live EP and a few compilations for good measure and that's where we stand today. Anyone who knows Crowbar is familiar with the numerous label and line-up changes over the years. I couldn't be more happy with the group of guys in our current lineup. In terms of musicianship, loyalty and friendship, this is our strongest lineup to date. Period. As I am typing this, we are furiously writing a new full length for you. We will also be re-releasing most of our back catalog and a new live +2 full length thru Housecore records. I've lived a thousand life times over the course of the last 24 years, but this old dog's got a lot more than you think left in the tank!

March 14, 2018 - Manhattan

Ballad from Tibet (Tian Lai Men Xiang). 2017. Tibet/China. Directed by Zhang Wei. In Tibetan, Chinese; English subtitles. 84 min. The students at a school for blind youth in a small Tibetan city are fans of a reality television program called Desire to Sing, an American Idol clone that inspires the talented blind and low-vision children to sing and fulfill their creative ambitions. The teachers and administrators are encouraging, empowering the students to pursue their dreams. When one of the boys, posing as a teacher, calls a Desire to Sing producer, he manages to secure the group an audition in Shenzhen. But when they arrive at the bus to Shenzhen they discover their teacher—the one they impersonated—is about to board. Not to be deterred, the kids, Thupten, Droma, Kalsang, and their older companion Sonam, make the unlikely decision to go on foot. Their odyssey takes them across Tibet, where they encounter old traditions and modern challenges, some more arduous than others, as they confront perceptions of their disability. Not making it to Shenzhen isn't an option in this delightful, uplifting road movie. This screening is part of the 10th Annual ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York. MoMA is proud to present an accessible screening, including verbal description accommodations for visitors who are blind or low vision, captioning for visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing, accessible seating for wheelchair users, and American Sign Language interpretation and CART captioning for a Q&A to follow the screening.

Aaron Irwin Sextet - Cornelia Street Cafe
March 14, 2018 - New York

"The balance between the composed and improvised is finely wrought, making the line between them virtually invisible, with the only giveaway being larger structure which is uses the familiar recapitulation. The cumulative effect...is a quiet intensity, almost an eavesdropping of a private conversation. Emotionally complex while being aurally transparent, the music ends up feeling like an long-gone acquaintance who has been missed, but whose newly-found presence is immediately comfortable. Strange, but wonderful." - All About Jazz (Bud Kopman)

The 69th Street Band - Club Groove NYC
March 14, 2018 - New York

Originally founded as a way to get Tom Paronis out of the house in 2007, the 69th Street Band has evolved into an "only in New York" outfit that offers up a unique mix of old school Chicago Blues and R&B, some jazz (particularly of the Acid Jazz variety popularized by Hammond/Sax combos of the 1960s), country, rockabilly and bluegrass and an overlay of percolating African rhythms. Tom cut his teeth on the South Side of Chicago in the late 1980s with the illustrious Buddy Scott clan playing a wide variety of blues, funk and R&B while also taking lessons with revered instructor Reggie "Guitar" Boyd. After moving to Europe in 1990 he played in various clubs in Frankfurt, Germany. Upon moving to New York in 1992 he played in various blues clubs (the late, lamented Dan Lynch's being the most frequent). When impending parenthood led him to give up gigging in 1998 he assiduously taught himself the fine art of Travis/Atkins picking and began listening to a wide variety of African music and old Studio One reggae. When the urge to play out reared its ugly head once more he wanted to find a way to incorporate these rhythms into his blues/country/R&B repertoire. The natural choice for the bass chair was old chum Lenny Nelson, who has arguably played with every blues/R&B outfit in the greater tri-state area during the last few decades, including countless gigs with late, great Rolling Thunder drummer and pianist Howie Wyeth. On percussion the band calls on the services of two of the planet's premier African drummers. Ivory Coast native Abou Diarrassouba first came to the US with the great Alpha Blondy and liked it so much he decided to stay. Since then he has become a "go to" drummer and djembe player for numerous African and reggae bands, among them The Wailers, The Easy All Stars and Angelique Kidjo. Other drummer Joseph "Jojo" Kuo played with Fela Kuti and Manu Dibango for a number of years and spent a decade in the studios of Paris and touring worldwide with legends such as Peter Gabriel, Salif Keita and the Gypsy Kings. Jojo decamped to the warmer climes of Orlando, Florida in order to lead the band at Disney World's African Pavilion six days a week in 2012. In 2016 he returned to the Big Apple and can reliably be seen gigging with or sitting in with his old compatriots on a semi-regular basis. It is also worth noting that he infused the band with some remarkable players, such as the great Tony Cedras who logged a wonderful two and a half years with the group before returning to Cape Town, and hard grooving Cameroonian bass player Freddie Doumbe who Tom jokingly refers to as "Richard Bona's bass player" (it's true but you'll have to ask Freddie about that).

Blake Morgan Residency (with special guest Chris Barron) - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 14, 2018 - New York

Blake Morgan's two-year sold-out run at New York City's Rockwood Music Hall continues with Season Three of his ongoing artist-in-residence concert series. This third season features Grammy-nominated and Grammy-winning special guests Jesse Harris, Tracy Bonham, Michael Leonhart, and Chris Barron, each of whom perform alongside Morgan, continuing the tradition of unique on-stage collaborations that the residency's audience has come to love. Morgan's sold-out run in New York has also fueled an extraordinary string of recent headlining performances for the artist around the globe: over 100 concerts across 50,000 miles of touring on both sides of the Atlantic this past year alone. Morgan has recently headlined his first large-scale solo tours of Germany and The United Kingdom, along with three extensive tours of the West Coast of the United States. There's no sign of slowing down for the artist––in October of 2017 Morgan co-headlined with acclaimed singer-songwriter David Poe for a 1,500-mile West Coast tour, and December will find Morgan back in the U.K. for his second major tour of Britain in a year. The Washington Post writes, "He's got killer pop-rock instincts, something that leaps out at you…a natural when it comes to fashioning sharp melodies and catchy choruses." Billboard Magazine adds, "Blake Morgan has a voice that was made to be heard on the radio…inspired songwriting and passionate performances." Native New Yorker Blake Morgan is a recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and the founder and owner of ECR Music Group, a global music company that operates under an elemental principle unprecedented in the music world: all of its artists and labels own one-hundred percent of their master recordings. His music advocacy has taken him to Capitol Hill numerous times where, as the founder of the #IRespectMusic movement, he continues to fight for music makers' rights in the digital age.

The Search for the Last Supper - Sheen Center
March 14, 2018 - New York

On the heels of the staggering news that Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi" painting recently sold for $450.3 million comes the revelation that for over 450 years, the Abbey of Tongerlo in Belgium has housed a canvas version of Leonardo's celebrated Last Supper fresco—showing what the severely damaged mural in Milan originally looked like. After an intense survey of archives in Italy, France and Belgium, art historians Prof. Jean-Pierre Isbouts and Dr. Christopher Brown reveal in a new TV documentary, "The Search for The Last Supper," and their book Young Leonardo (Thomas Dunne Press/St. Martin's Press, 2017), that the Abbey's oil-on-canvas painting was executed by Leonardo's Milan studio, involving his best associates, just eight years after the original fresco was completed. However, this painting on canvas is now in dire need of restoration, which is estimated to cost around 500,000 Euros. This has inspired the launch of a U.S. fundraising effort in partnership with The King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS), based in New York. The effort to save the painting will kick-off with the American premiere screening of the film; a talkback with Brown and Isbouts; followed by a reception sponsored by The General Delegation of the Government of Flanders to the USA.

2nd Annual Institutional Investment Consulting Roundtable - CFA Society New York
March 15, 2018 - New York

Note: This event is in-house and is not being broadcasted nor recorded. No media will be present and speaker or attendee attribution, in any form, is a violation of CFANY's code of conduct. The 2nd Annual Institutional Investment Consulting Roundtable will feature a high-level discussion among senior institutional investment consultants. Institutional investment consultants provide investment advice to public and private companies, foundations and endowments looking for help with managing their money, or the money in their employees' retirement funds. The typical large consultant group usually has a division between the field consultants and the research consultants. The field consultants are the ones who meet with the clients. The research department mainly compiles the performance and other relevant information about the managers. From this the research, consultants provide the "short list" of approved managers that the field consultants use when they are assessing the best portfolio manager for a particular client. Investment consultants are highly influential in the institutional market. Cerulli Associates' survey of institutional asset managers indicates that consultant-intermediated business accounts for just less than 60% of 2012 asset flows. Further segmentation of the data by firm size shows that consultant-generated business was greater for smaller firms with $10 billion or less in asset under management, accounting for 75% of these firms' asset flows. Conversely, asset management firms with greater than $50 billion in AUM generated a little less than half of their new flows were consultant-intermediated.

Akbar Ahmed traveled across Europe interviewing Muslims and non-Muslims from all walks of life, including presidents and prime ministers, archbishops, chief rabbis, grand muftis and heads of right-wing parties, revealing misunderstandings and opportunities for Europe and its Muslims to improve their relationship.

Mat Kearney - PlayStation Theater
March 15, 2018 - New York

"Two kids with wet cement living down in their souls, they say what gets carved when you're young stays there when you're old" says Mat Kearney on the title track of his 4th full length album "JUST KIDS." "There's something incredibly vulnerable about middle school for me," says the singer and songwriter. "We're really impressionable during that period. The cement's still wet, so to speak, and a lot of things later in life are born during that season." "JUST KIDS" is full of nostalgia and youthful energy written almost as a love letter to his northwest upbringing in Eugene, OR. "A lot of my family has moved to Nashville, where I now live, which is awesome for me personally but it severed some the physical roots I had to Oregon. I found myself writing a lot of songs about my hometown and how it shaped me today."

Andrew Friedman with Jeff Gordinier: Chefs, Drugs and Rock and Roll - 92Y
March 15, 2018 - Upper East Side

Author Andrew Friedman treats us to a 360-degree look at the restaurant industry's remarkable evolution in the 1970s and 1980s through his interviews with the pioneering chefs, line cooks, front-of-house personnel, investors and critics who had front-row seats to this extraordinary transformation. Friedman talks with Jeff Gordinier about some of the stories from his new book Chefs, Drugs and Rock & Roll: How Food Lovers, Free Spirits, Misfits and Wanderers Created a New American Profession — from the politically charged backdrop of Berkeley which helped spark this new profession; into the historically underrated community of Los Angeles chefs, including a young Wolfgang Puck; into the clash of cultures between established French chefs in New York City and the American game changers behind the Quilted Giraffe, River Café and other storied establishments; and behind the scenes into the chefs, their struggles, their cliques and their restaurants, and see how and why the profession evolved.

Peculiar Sam - The New School, Wollman Hall
March 15, 2018 - New York

Peculiar Sam is a dramatic ballad opera in four acts, and was written as a benefit for the then famous minstrel Sam Lucas. The central character was created by Lucas, and Hopkins planned her text around 16 different vocal numbers using plantation songs, ballads, and spirituals as the basis for her score. The premiere of Peculiar Sam took place at the Boston Young Men's Christian Union on December 8, 1879. For a year, the show toured under the management of Z.W. Sprague, a white minstrel and impresario. The most successful production occurred in July 1880 at Boston's Oakland Gardens. Large crowds attended, and the play, revised into three acts and staged by Hopkins' group, the Hyers Sisters Combination, was a huge success. The plot of the drama is reminiscent of that of the ballad opera Out of Bondage, by Joseph Bradford, which may have inspired the story. It documents the lives of several escaped slaves; scenes take place at various stops along the underground railroad, and the final scenes show them as successful professionals in different walks of life.

Tall Heights - Rough Trade NYC
March 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

Getting there is half the fun, as the old saying goes, but the journey is really the whole point for Boston progressive-folk duo Tall Heights. And singer/guitarist Tim Harrington and singer/cellist Paul Wright have had one hell of a journey, starting from playing simple acoustics on the streets of Boston to reaching Sony Music Masterworks, for which they have released their biggest, brightest, and riskiest work thus far. Neptune is the band's latest step in the ongoing evolution of their sound and style. Neptune is backed with pristine vocal harmonies and splattered with surprises: there's subtly chugging electric guitar and a spare descending bass line on "Iron in the Fire," ethereal synthesizers and a spacious drum part on "Spirit Cold," a brittle splash of percussion to open "Backwards and Forwards" and feedback created by two cellphones on "Cross My Mind." The album is clearly the product of a long journey, but whether it's Tall Height's final destination remains unclear. "I can hear the evolution happening," Harrington says. "I feel like we're walking across a bridge from one place to another, and maybe I'll always feel that way, but I'm really happy with how we're moving."

I'm with Her - The Town Hall
March 15, 2018 - New York

A band of extraordinary chemistry and exquisite musicianship, I'm With Her features Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O'Donovan. Collectively, the multi-Grammy-Award-winners have released seven solo efforts, co-founded two seminal bands (Nickel Creek and Crooked Still), and contributed to critically acclaimed albums from a host of esteemed artists. But from its very first moments, their full-length debut See You Around reveals the commitment to creating a wholly unified band sound. With each track born from close songwriting collaboration, I'm With Her builds an ineffable magic from their finespun narratives and breathtaking harmonies. The result is an album both emotionally raw and intricate, revealing layers of meaning and insight within even the most starkly adorned track. Co-produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Laura Marling, Paul McCartney) and the band and recorded at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios in a tiny English village near Bath, See You Around delivers a warmly textured yet stripped-down sound that proves both fresh and timeless. To achieve the album's intimate feel, I'm With Her recorded live in the tight confines of the Wood Room, all three members performing in the same room without monitors or headphones. With its piercingly lyricism, See You Around also finds I'm With Her showing the uncompromising honesty of their songwriting. That intensity is heightened by the band's effortless harmonizing, which the New York Times has praised as "sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel." Layered with lush guitar tones and crystalline harmonies, See You Around's title track opens the album with a breakup ballad of rare nuance ("It's about coming to the end of a long relationship where you both run in the same circles, and that melancholy feeling of knowing you're going to have to keep seeing that person again and again," Jarosz explains). A bittersweet mood endures for songs like "Ain't That Fine," a wistful meditation on existential ups and downs that ultimately discovers solace in its reflection and reckoning (sample lyric: "I can't believe the things I put my mother through/But it's alright, I guess we all deserve our turn to be a fool"). From track to track, I'm With Her infuses their sonic palette with so many unexpected and subtly captivating elements: the jagged guitar lines and chanteuse-like delivery of "I-89," the percussive vocal phrasing of "Game to Lose," the ghostly harmonies and eerie atmospherics of "Wild One." At the same time, the band's finely wrought lyrics gently shift from the darkly charged storytelling of "Pangaea" to the sleepy sensuality of "Ryland (Under the Apple Tree)" to the romantic travel tale of "Overland." And on the Gillian Welch-penned "Hundred Miles"—a gorgeously understated track, and the album's only song written outside the band—See You Around closes out with a world-weary but potent message of hope. All through See You Around, I'm With Her exhibit a refined musicality that reflects their deep musical roots. After years of crossing paths in their intersecting scenes, the three musicians came together by happenstance for an off-the-cuff performance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in summer 2014. The very same day, a mutual friend texted them with a last-minute request to open a show that night at the Sheridan Opera House. "We had two hours to prepare for a 30-minute set and we said, 'Let's do it, let's skip margaritas and rehearse,'" O'Donovan recalls. "We worked up six or seven songs in the bathroom, and then went on to this crazy-energetic crowd at one in the morning. I'll never forget how amazing that felt." Later that year, Watkins, O'Donovan, and Jarosz met up in New York to prep for a series of European shows in early 2015, carefully crafting their own arrangements of songs by artists ranging from Jim Croce to Nina Simone. "When you're arranging a song, you're communicating in ways that sometimes can be really inefficient," says Watkins. "But with us it felt like we were all in a similar rhythm." As their chemistry continued to deepen, the trio soon founded I'm With Her and transformed the project into a fully realized band. "Once you decide it's a band, you can put it higher on your priority list and give it more attention," says O'Donovan. "The bar gets raised when something has an air of permanence about it, and that's definitely been the case for us." Although I'm With Her spent most of 2015 performing at festivals around the world, the band also holed up for their first-ever writing session that summer in L.A. "By that point it had started to solidify that we travel well together, play well together, eat well together—it felt like we'd tested our compatibility in all these different zones," says Watkins. And after just four days of writing, it was clear that their compatibility extended to the art of songcraft. "I loved the songs, we all loved the songs," says Jarosz of that first batch of tracks penned in L.A. "I think that really sparked the flame for us to make a full record together." When it came time to get working on the record, I'm With Her convened at a borrowed farmhouse in Vermont and spent over a week carving out new material, leaving only to replenish their supply of Heady Topper beer. "We were completely on lockdown and didn't interact with another human being for eight days," says O'Donovan. "If you can get through that and, at the end, still be so excited about what you're doing, then that says a lot about the whole creative flow as a band." Jarosz adds: "A lot of times you approach songwriting as a solitary act, or maybe choose to write with one other person you feel comfortable with. It's a whole other beast to have three people writing together, juggling all these different ideas and personalities. But somehow for us, all of the songwriting was just so seamless." In Vermont, the band settled into their creative stride, but when the additional voice of producer Ethan Johns was added to the process in the studio, they found themselves starting another round of learning and growth. "Going into the recording, there were a lot of unknowns and a lot of questions," says Jarosz. "It was a challenge for us to figure out how to make our vision and Ethan's vision come together in a way that worked for everyone, and there was definitely some friction at times, but about halfway through we started to work it out." With each member playing guitar and handling various aspects of the instrumentation— including fiddle and ukulele for Watkins, mandolin and banjo for Jarosz, piano and synth for O'Donovan—the band cut most of the album live and under exceptionally close-knit conditions. "Ethan had the studio so that we played all in the same room and facing each other," Jarosz says. "There was really no separation between us at all." In looking back on the making of See You Around, I'm With Her note that a sense of unity has sustained in every step—including the moments when one member's song idea failed to fly with the others. "If an idea doesn't get accepted, it's not like, 'I'm a failure, this will never be heard,'" says Watkins. "You just move on to the next thing and put that idea aside for something else. We don't have to be as precious with things, which really helps that forward-motion of creativity." It's exactly that dynamic spirit that, despite the album's many moments of graceful restraint, imbues so much of See You Around with a powerful urgency—or, as O'Donovan, puts it: "In this band, there's no time to get bogged down in what doesn't happen. It's all about what is happening."

As his popularity began to expand, Byrne was featured in his very own half-hour Comedy Central Presents which was soon voted as one of the best specials of all time in the Comedy Central Standup Showdown. His hilarious standup has been seen on NBC's The Tonight Show, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS's The Late Late Show and BET's Comic View. In 2008, Byrne's first one-hour special, Steve Byrne's Happy Hour, premiered on Comedy Central and further cemented his star status. Packing an impressively wide range of appeal, Byrne's comedy soon landed him on the The History of the Joke on the History Channel and the Discovery Channel's The Science of Laughter. He has since appeared on some of TV's hottest shows including ABC's The Middle, The Chapelle Show, G4's The International Sexy Ladies Show, The Howard Stern Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, The Very Funny Show, The Byrne Identity on Comedy Central and was a series regular on NBC's The Real Wedding Crashers.

ESHAM - El Cortez
March 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

Esham is a rapper from Detroit, Michigan known for his hallucinogenic style of hip hop which he refers to as "acid rap". That style of music fuses rock-based beats and lyrics involving subjects such as death, drug use, evil, paranoia and sex. This unique style blend made it difficult for Esham to build a fanbase. Esham released his first studio album, Boomin' Words from Hell (1989), at the age of 16. Since then, he has released 15 more albums. He and his brother James Smith founded the biggest-selling independent hip hop label in Detroit, Reel Life Productions, and the label ran until 2001. Esham's influence eventually fueled the careers of Detroit hip hop artists such as Kid Rock, Eminem, and Insane Clown Posse.

The Cover of Life - Gene Frankel Theatre
March 15, 2018 - New York

Miller-Coffman Proudly presents: The Cover of Life by R.T. Robinson Tood, Weetsie, and Sybil are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

CEG Presents Scott Pemberton Band - DROM
March 15, 2018 - New York

Scott is an emerging force on the festival circuit, with his wild approach to the guitar and nimble funky band he is immediately recognizable and undeniably original. He doesn't use a strap, often plays the guitar like someone would play piano and performs with the uninhibited joy and intensity of someone who recognizes that every time we make music is an honor and a gift. Pemberton's sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland: freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The best way to categorize his music is with the moniker "Timber Rock". Scott naturally applies his own lens/stamp to the sounds of the Pacific North West, the region he has always called home. The deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues roots and the west coast funk. It's all there, and often all in the same song. Listeners are finding this honest, original and to-the-point music refreshing and fun.

Jamila Woods / Jazze Belle - BRIC
March 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

A frequent guest vocalist in the hip-hop, jazz and soul world with the likes of Chance The Rapper, Macklemore, and Noname, Jamila Woods has emerged as a powerful, once-in-a-generation soul and R&B singer-songwriter and poet with her debut solo album HEAVN, which draws from influences as varied as Lucille Clifton's poetry to the infectious late '80s post-punk of The Cure. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, her music is the best representation of Jamila herself: strong in her roots, confident in her ideas, and attuned to the people, places, and things shaping her world. Opening on the Stoop is Jazze Belle, the Harlem-based group headed by producer/instrumentalist Jett Carter and singer/songwriter Taylor Simone. With influences ranging from Jill Scott to SBTRKT, the two bring a sound of jazzy vocals and edgy production, blurring genre lines in the process.

Pine Barons, Rubber Band Gun, Jungle Green, Ben Chatrer - Baby's All Right
March 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

Children of the Forest; Conceived by the roots. Lived by vascular contraptions; inspired by Hot Sauce. Then born again into the vast abyss of worldly Dexter Conciousness, to endure the lilypad of tremulant pleasure-seeker Elong Shrine. Shrine was one of the few indigenous survivors of Rimb. Though he suffered the tortures of the damned, his sadistic pre-Rimb ways have resurfaced in a menacing fashion.

Tickle Torture - Baby's All Right
March 15, 2018 - Brooklyn

His first EP, Spiritual Machete (2012), felt like catching Justin Timberlake and Prince fucking in a dumpster full of broken synthesizers. Equal parts electro­ funk and sleaze, his follow­ up EP Spectrophilia(2014) further expanded this sound, incorporating the influences of trashy disco, experimental hip­hop production sensibilities, and 80's synth drenched R&B classics to create a one of­ a ­kind maximalist assault. Recently relocating from Minneapolis to Los Angeles, one man producer, composer, engineer Elliott Kozel has just completed his debut full length LP Lovequake, which explores not just the giddy peaks of modern nightlife, but also the inherent sadness in the 4 am aftermath. Over the 3 years of writing and production, Kozel gathered his influences of early 80's Chicago-House 12 inches, Egyptian Lover's sleazed out electro-funk and Prince's Purple Rain-era balladry into the kaleidoscopic record.

Hallie Bond: Dog Days - Saratoga Springs Public Library
March 15, 2018 - Saratgoa Springs

In "Dog Days," Hallie Bond uses oral tradition, photographs, works of art, diaries, and news articles to put an historic perspective on a widely popular subject. The Adirondack region is the setting. This mountainous, rural region that is the size of the state of Massachusetts was ranged over by the Iroquois and Abenaki and their dogs before Europeans moved in. Then, in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, settlers, commercial loggers, and urban vacationers — and their dogs — all came. Traditional ways of life were juxtaposed with modern thought and urban ideas. Adirondack dogs have been and are hunters, companions, herders, guards, beasts of burden, and status symbols. In the process of discussing the images and the history of dogs in this one region, program participants will explore concepts with a broad meaning. How has our concept of sportsmanship changed over time and why? What is a pet? Has this idea changed over time? Why? Do concepts of "sportsmanship" and "pets" depend on whether we're rural or urban?

Just Images - The Museum of Modern Art
March 15, 2018 - Manhattan

London's late 1970s Super8 moment relates to its New York counterpart chiefly in the ephemerality underlying each city's alternative moving-image scene. Originally screened in nightclubs and artist squats, projected in multimedia performances, or created in art schools by those who went on to thrive in fashion and music, the films celebrated in This Is Now risked fading from view until the British Film Institute's remarkable archiving initiative. This opening program is anchored by The Court of Miracles, a lyrical featurette figuring among the era's most ambitious works. In it, John Maybury crafts tableaux of scene luminaires Siouxsie Sioux, David Holah, Judy Blame, and others in an exquisite, metaphysical treatise on gender-bending and body modification. Found footage, layered images, and textual interventions heighten Maybury's exploration of identity through the symbolism of images. Alternately, Isaac Julien and Vanda Carter tap into the medium's political potential to probe the mediated construction of narrative. Julien's Territories notably combined Super8, video, and audio elements in a hybrid documentary on the Notting Hill Carnival that affirms the experience of multicultural, diasporic British identity as both celebration and protest. Introducing another major genre from the period, Maybury and Cerith Wyn Evans's music video for Genesis P-Orridge's art band Psychic TV is a hypnotic collage featuring Leigh Bowery; far edgier than anything on MTV, "Unclean" was distributed by tape through the band's own Temple Records.

The Open Mind: Lessons from the Visual Arts with Eléna Rivera - Poets House
March 15, 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.

The Arcadian Wild - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 15, 2018 - New York

Choir class is where all great things begin. Perhaps not a mantra held by many, but it rings true for the members of The Arcadian Wild, a folk trio based in Nashville, TN. Isaac Horn, Lincoln Mick, and Sarah Wood connected through the choral program at Lipscomb University. Exploring a vulnerability and purity of experience achieved through the use of acoustic instruments, The Arcadian Wild layers thoughtful texts expressed in rich three-part harmony overtop arrangements of guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and banjo. In the fall of 2015, The Arcadian Wild released its first full-length, self-titled album. Twelve tracks in all, these songs celebrate the bright spots of life, love, and redemption, while also penetrating honestly and deeply into the darker corners of the heart, and crying out for freedom from entanglement and expectation. Knowing how to live in the tension between health and hurt, joy and sobriety, pleasure and pain is not always easy, but it is necessary for us to do in order to live authentically, and it is something to which The Arcadian Wild aspires in their music.

Mat Kearney, Andrew Belle - PlayStation Theater
March 15, 2018 - New York

"Two kids with wet cement living down in their souls, they say what gets carved when you're young stays there when you're old" says Mat Kearney on the title track of his 4th full length album "JUST KIDS." "There's something incredibly vulnerable about middle school for me," says the singer and songwriter. "We're really impressionable during that period. The cement's still wet, so to speak, and a lot of things later in life are born during that season." "JUST KIDS" is full of nostalgia and youthful energy written almost as a love letter to his northwest upbringing in Eugene, OR. "A lot of my family has moved to Nashville, where I now live, which is awesome for me personally but it severed some the physical roots I had to Oregon. I found myself writing a lot of songs about my hometown and how it shaped me today."

"Introducing The Flux Machine: Punk-infused alt-rock from New York City. Influenced by the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Ramones and The Foo Fighters, this new act is ready to claim its stake in the arena of rock and roll music. Audiofuzz.com called them "Exile on Main Street Revisited". With a powerful 5-piece live ensemble, the band has been playing all over NYC with it's electrifying and energetic stage show. Mesmerizing to watch as they deliver punchy, catchy punk songs repeatedly. The Bowery Electric, The Delancey, The Grand Victory, are just a few of the venues that have repeatedly hosted The Flux Machine. Planetstereolive reassures: "The Flux Machine seamlessly blends a classic bluegrass feel to their gritty, alternative rock attitude that will have you bouncing around your room like you're in the middle of a concert." Luis Accorsi, a veteran rocker with many musical styles under his belt (Cracked Latin [Latin], Man's Laughter [Rock] and Petty Merchants [classic rock]) has teamed up with the fresh, new rock producer Raphael Sepulveda to create a varied, yet cohesive collection of adrenaline driven, heartfelt, contemporary songs which they've called "Louder!". On this culminating night, the band will release the fruits of their labor on a red-splattered vinyl, which all patrons will receive complementary to a ticket sale, exclusively at this show! Familiar but yet like nothing you've ever heard before, The Flux Machine."

Women in Art - The Met Fifth Avenue
March 15, 2018 - Upper East Side

Barbara Stehlé, art historian We have reason to believe that female artists have contributed to the history of art since prehistory, not only as muses, but as creators who fashioned history and defined the arts. The Met collection features great works authored by women. The major artistic movements of the last four centuries reveal the role women played in the definition of modernity. The questions they asked, the life they lived, and their dialogue with their male colleagues will be at the center of our investigation. This will be an up-close introduction to a female-centered art history.

Christopher McBride & The Whole Proof - Smalls Live
March 15, 2018 - New York

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

March 15, 2018 - Midtown West

Living legend Jean-Pierre Léaud stars in this playfully self-reflexive ghost story, which functions as a consideration of cinema, mortality, and the actor's own status as an emblem of film history. He plays Jean, an aging movie actor who, as he prepares to shoot a death scene, finds himself visited by the spirit of a dead, long-ago lover (Pauline Etienne). Meanwhile, he has visitors of another kind: a band of children who cast him in the DIY haunted house movie they are making. Director Nobuhiro Suwa channels the spirit of Rivette as he spins a wonderfully loose-limbed tale that delights in the infinite possibilities of filmmaking. Plus: the gratifying sight of Léaud chucking apples at a gaggle of pesky youngsters. North American Premiere

Wakey Wakey - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 16, 2018 - New York

Ever since his single "War Sweater" jettisoned him into stardom five years ago (thanks to a game-changing plug on One Tree Hill), the indie-pop singer has built a following that's as passionate as his compositions. His fans have bought 45,000 copies of his self-released debut, the exquisitely tortured Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said the Last Time I Saw You. They've permanently inked his lyrics on their bodies (you can find them on display at the "W!W! Tattoos!!!" Pinterest board). And in the ultimate gesture of support, they crowd-funded his self-released follow-up album, the fittingly titled Salvation—and even exceeded the goal by 141 percent. Meanwhile, Salvation's first single, the bright, palpitating "Wake Up (Lily, I Love You…)," is already off to an auspicious start, amassing global grassroots traction. Wakey!Wakey! fans are not passive, and that is not lost on a humbled Grubbs. "That has fundamentally changed the conversation with me, the way that I connect with fans through music," he says. With the optimistic Salvation, he continues, "I'm taking a leap of faith that my fans have evolved with me."

The Irish Comedy Tour - Paramount Hudson Valley Theater
March 16, 2018 - Peekskill

The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans. The clover -- make that clever -- comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; Nova Scotia's Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland Derrick Keane. Audiences howl at Richards' tales about his mom's dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel's Top 10. McCarthy's no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The "comedy barbarian," as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society's most sensitive topics. Leibert's unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. His power packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show. And finally Keane, originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America. Don't miss these hilarious Irish American comedians as they tear apart as well as validate all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.

Jimmie Vaughan Trio - Iridium
March 16, 2018 - New York

Jimmie Vaughan is far more than just one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in the world of popular music. As Guitar Player magazine notes, "He is a virtual deity–a living legend." After all, Vaughan provides a vital link between contemporary music and its proud heritage, as well as being a longtime avatar of retro cool. Since releasing his first solo album in 1994, he has set the standard for quality modern roots music. Throughout his career, Vaughan has earned the esteem of his legendary guitar-playing heroes and superstar peers along with successive generations of young players. His musical ethos and personal style have had an impact on contemporary culture, from spearheading the current blues revival with The Fabulous Thunderbirds to his longtime, innate fashion sense of slicked-back hair and sharp vintage threads (now seen throughout the pages of contemporary fashion journals) to becoming a premier designer of classic custom cars. But for Jimmie Vaughan, none of it is part of a crusade or a career plan. It's just his natural way of living his life and pursuing the interests that have captivated Vaughan since his youth. Now, with his third solo release and Artemis Records debut, Do You Get The Blues? Vaughan has fashioned his most compelling and appealing musical statement yet, creating a rich and variegated masterpiece of 21st Century rhythm and blues. From the first notes of the opening instrumental, "Dirty Girl," it's clear that Vaughan has created a contemporary classic. Driven by Vaughan's lyrical guitar work, the skin-tight drumming of George Rains and the verdant Hammond B-3 work of the song's writer, Bill Willis (whose long career includes work on the seminal R&B and blues sides issued by King Records as well as stints with Freddie King and Lavern Baker), the song speaks volumes without a single word, and sets a tone of distinctive and emotion-laden musical articulation that continues throughout the disc.

Anomalie - Rough Trade NYC
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Anomalie (aka Nicolas Dupuis) is a keyboardist and producer based in the beautiful city of Montreal. Music has been in his blood since an early age, leading to more than 17 years of experience studying classical and jazz piano performance. He also became the first person to be awarded the Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre Métropolitain, Rotterdams Philharmonisch) excellence grant in 2012. It was around that time he decided a change was in order. Using the moniker Anomalie, he began producing tracks infused with a combination of classical music, jazz, hip hop, funk, fusion and various electronic elements. Sounds hectic, but Nicolas pulls it off seamlessly as evidenced on his debut self-titled EP from 2013, and further confirmed by nearly 2M views his performance videos garnered on Facebook. Anomalie then made his debut on Lowtemp with single "Odyssée" in April of 2016. Soon after he began touring with Gramatik as his keyboard player on live shows, while also working on his second EP. The Métropole EP is available now in all digital stores. The eight track EP takes the listener on a soulful journey beginning with a piano only introductory track. Each track hammers in Anomalie's signature sound, driving home the fact that this kid has a lot of talent. - YourEDM Métropole is a glorious mixture of both classical and experimental jazz, funk, hip hop, and electronica. This may sound pretty intense, but Anomalie's skill as a musician pulls it off miraculously. - Frequency21 In these eight tracks Anomalie manages to showcase everything his music is about: incredible creative energy combined with songwriting techniques from jazz, and a foundation of contemporary beats ranging from hip hop to broken beat. - The Music Essentials When Anomalie hits the stage his material comes to life with energy-driven arrangements for a 4-piece band.

Dixie Dregs - The Town Hall
March 16, 2018 - New York

For guitar aficionados, Steve Morse needs no introduction, and his place in the pantheon of guitar greats is certain. But in fact, his career started with the Dixie Dregs. And now beginning March 2018, with much anticipation and in response to demand from devoted fans, the original lineup announces a return to live performance for the Dawn of the Dregs Tour! The band traces its true beginnings to the band Dixie Grit, which started in a Georgia high school with Steve on guitar and Andy West on bass. Dixie Grit morphed into the Dixie Dregs at the University of Miami School of Music, where Allen Sloan (violin) and Rod Morgenstein (drums) joined up with Steve and Andy, who were the "dregs" of Dixie Grit. The members of the Dixie Dregs remained committed to attending the University of Miami School of Music, which hosted a lively and talented musical community during their tenure, including future greats Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, T Lavitz, and Bruce Hornsby, among many others. In 1975, the group's demo album, The Great Spectacular, was recorded at the University of Miami and then re-released on CD in 1997. After graduation, the band moved back to Augusta where Steve Davidowski (keyboards) completed the band that would eventually emerge and become known simply as The Dregs. The band paid its dues and honed its skills playing in bars and venues throughout the South in the mid-70's. They established themselves in the firmament of American instrumental music, seamlessly fusing rock with progressive and jazz elements to create a uniquely instrumental-driven style that has stood the test of time. Based on a short demo and a tip from former Allman Brothers keyboardist Chuck Leavell along with Allman/Dregs tour manager Twiggs Lyndon, Capricorn Records signed the Dixie Dregs to record Free Fall (1977). The success and critical acclaim of Free Fall announced the Dixie Dregs to the world, and after its release, they would became a cult favorite band that would have a lasting influence on much of modern rock. Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released eleven commercial albums of original material, and a number of compilations, reissues, and countless live bootlegs also exist. Along the way they have garnered six (!) Grammy nominations. The band has played with several well-known additional alumni and guests -- among others, Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra) Alex Ligertwood (Santana) and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) -- and its original band members have played and recorded on well over 300 releases (including Deep Purple (Steve Morse) and Winger/Jelly Jam (Rod Morgenstein)). The Dawn of the Dregs tour is coming soon to a city near you!

The Casket Lottery - Saint Vitus
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

21 years into its existence, The Casket Lottery is still evolving at its own pace. Over the course of four full length records, four EPs and countless 7" singles, the Kansas City band has flirted with fidgety math rock, atmospheric explorations and anthemic singalongs, all while showcasing a masterful ability to balance world-weary heavy hearts with bombastic choruses that explode into stadium-sized fireworks displays. While the band has taken a few hiatuses over the past decade (with members contributing to other projects like Coalesce, Appleseed Cast, Able Baker Fox, Jackie Carol and singer Nathan Ellis' solo work), every return to action finds The Casket Lottery recharged and refocused, eagerly annexing new musical territories while still retaining that ragged, restless fire that sparked the band two decades prior. This spring the band will be playing shows to help celebrate the rerelease of their first three LPs Choose Bronze (1999), Moving Mountains (2000), and Survival is For Cowards (2002) on Boston record label Run For Cover Records.

Mantra: Sounds Into Silence World Premiere and live kirtan with Charlie Braun - Rubin Museum of Art
March 16, 2018 - New York

Joining your voice with others in chant can create a sense of communion—with yourself and with the people around you. Mantra: Sounds into Silence shares the stories of people who find healing and a sense of timelessness by singing mantras together with others who are also in search of inner peace. This film delves into both awareness through music and communal chant as a social phenomenon. It is about people reconnecting with their true selves through a shared experience. This documentary features beloved kirtan artists Deva Premal & Miten, Krishna Das, Snatam Kaur, Lama Gyurme, Jai Uttal, and MC Yogi. It also tells the stories of others who discovered the practice of kirtan, and how over the years it transformed their lives, too. One scene features Brainwave alum Dr. Andrew Newberg who attests to the neurological benefits of the regular practice of meditation and chant. To celebrate the world premiere of this film, this screening will be followed by a short Q&A with the filmmaker Georgia Wyss and kirtan with Charlie Braun.

The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover of Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

The Casket Lottery Bay Faction - Saint Vitus Bar
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

21 years into its existence, The Casket Lottery is still evolving at its own pace. Over the course of four full length records, four EPs and countless 7" singles, the Kansas City band has flirted with fidgety math rock, atmospheric explorations and anthemic singalongs, all while showcasing a masterful ability to balance world-weary heavy hearts with bombastic choruses that explode into stadium-sized fireworks displays. While the band has taken a few hiatuses over the past decade (with members contributing to other projects like Coalesce, Appleseed Cast, Able Baker Fox, Jackie Carol and singer Nathan Ellis' solo work), every return to action finds The Casket Lottery recharged and refocused, eagerly annexing new musical territories while still retaining that ragged, restless fire that sparked the band two decades prior. This spring the band will be playing shows to help celebrate the rerelease of their first three LPs Choose Bronze (1999), Moving Mountains (2000), and Survival is For Cowards (2002) on Boston record label Run For Cover Records.

Tab Benoit's Whiskey Bayou Records Revue feat. Jeff McCarty and Eric Johanson - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
March 16, 2018 - Bay Shore

Tab Benoit is a Cajun man who's definitely got the blues. Born November 17, 1967, he grew up in Houma, Louisiana. A guitar player since his teenage years, he hung out at the Blues Box, a ramshackle music club and cultural center in nearby Baton Rouge run by guitarist Tabby Thomas. Playing guitar alongside Thomas, Raful Neal, Henry Gray and other high-profile regulars at the club, Benoit learned the blues first-hand from a faculty of living blues legends. The nightly impromptu gigs were enough to inspire Benoit to assemble his own band – a stripped down bass-and-drums unit propelled by his solid guitar skills and leathery, Cajun-spiced vocal attack. He took his show on the road in the early '90s and hasn't stopped since

"But I'm obsessed with seeking out timeless music," 32-year old Spero says. "I'm always going through Spotify and looking for artists that I think are putting out great music. I am often transcribing, breaking apart, and analyzing music to understand what makes it effective. There is so much okay music out right now. I'm trying to create illimitable music."

The Floozies: Funk Jesus - the Second Coming - Brooklyn Bowl
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Just outside the jazz mecca of Kansas City springs liberal oasis Lawrence, Kansas -- separated only by the waves of wheat from the epicenter of the electronic music revolution in Colorado. From Lawrence, it would logically follow that an act could rise to prominence fueled by the swing of Basie, the birth of Charlie Parker's bebop, and the wild frontier of electronica. Born in funk and bred in the digital age, live electronic duo The Floozies have burst onto the scene at a time when the industry needed them the most. Brothers Matt and Mark Hill share the stage just as easily as they share a musical brain. Without a setlist, and without a word between them, Matt's guitar is in lockstep with the thud of Mark's kick. Endless looping and production builds the raw scenery upon which palm muted chugs, searing solos, and wobbling bass paint their dazzling array of colors. Well versed in everything from Chris Cornell to Kavinsky, the sonic vision shared by the brothers eschews contemporary electronic influences in favor of broader, deeper tastes including Zapp & Roger, Lettuce, and Amon Tobin. That wide?angle view of a century of popular music allows the Hills to remix Toto and The Dead -- in the music you can hear reverence for the giants of the past, all the while producing wildly futuristic tunes for the masses to dig now. When the pendulum swung as far as it could away from live instrumentation to laptops, The Floozies rose up to the challenge, swinging as hard as they could in the other direction with neck?snapping, knee?breaking funk so dirty that the gatekeepers stood up, wiped themselves off, and took notice. A bold live show full of sonic exploration and unbreakably deep pocket grooves has landed the brothers on stage with luminaries of the jam world Umphrey's McGee as readily as electronic elites GRiZ and Big Gigantic. Sold out shows in major markets, and huge festival appearances at Electric Forest, Wakarusa, and Summercamp have cemented the duo's ascent, while headlining tours across the country and festival appearances at SnowGlobe and Rainbow Serpent Festival in Australia dot the horizon.

Jessi Mason - Club Groove NYC
March 16, 2018 - New York

Jessi Mason is a singer/songwriter from Westchester County, New York. Her songs are honest and intimate, her voice sweet and soulful. Jessi started playing guitar when she was nine years old and began writing original music shortly after. Writing for her is, "a way to express something that [she'd] otherwise be afraid to say out loud." Mason hopes that the qualities of artists who've influenced her, such as Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Emily King, pour out of her music and performances. She performs around New York and L.A. in venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, Silvana, Junior High, and The Mint. Jessi currently studies performance and songwriting in the Popular Music Program at University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, and will be releasing her second EP in January 2018.

Kevin Daniel - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
March 16, 2018 - New York

Since childhood, Kevin Daniel has known music was his future. Daniel recalls telling his parents he heard music in his head all the time, and their response was to buy him a keyboard and sign him up for lessons. Since that day, Daniel has spent a lifetime playing music, learning keys, saxophone, drums, guitar, bass, banjo, and even bagpipes along the way, all while singing in any capacity he could. Middle school saxophone quartets turned into high school rock bands before morphing into university symphony and jazz programs. Collegiate highlights include playing horn for DC-based Kill Lincoln, singing alto in the all-male a capella group Emocapella, and playing in the GWU blues band throughout the DC area. After spending years of making music in a host of genres, including everything from big swing bands to bluegrass quartets, Kevin Daniel started his solo career in 2013 with the release of his inaugural EP, FLY. Two decades of performing, writing, and recording had prepared Daniel to record and perform his own original music, while the sudden loss of his mother and stepfather provided the motivation to proceed with his dream. Backed by a band of talented musicians, daniel brings FLY and an increasingly large collection of new original tunes to the east coast and beyond. Kevin Daniel is currently finishing his second EP, Myself Through You, recorded at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, NY, and produced, engineered, and mixed by Ben Rice. Daniel's sophomore EP brings the bold emotions of the organ, steel guitar, and horn to the forefront of Americana music, a genre growing its fan base exponentially. With backup vocals provided by the talented Irene Blackman, Daniel's lyrics touch on his childhood in rural North Carolina, personal struggle with the loss of his family, and the inevitable forward push of time.

Music has brought him across this great nation and into spellbound evenings in some of the best listening rooms around.

The Generators - The Safari Room at El Cortez
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

The origin of Los Angeles' influential punk band The Generators dates back to 1997, just a few miles from the skyscrapers of downtown. In the early days, the band hung out and wrote music in an old vacant pizza oven factory, churning out their first batch of songs, which echoed the sentiments of the 1977 Punk spirit. They quickly got attention from the owners of the infamous Triple X Records, who were known best for their 1980's roster that included Social Distortion, The Vandals, GBH and Jane's Addiction. Without haste, the indie punk label put The Generators into the recording studio where they produced their first album ironically titled Welcome To The End. Now, almost eighteen years since the days of making punk songs in the old pizza oven factory, The Generators still carry on strong. In 2014, the band released their tenth full-length album titled Life Gives-Life Takes on their new record label Randale Records.

The Magician at Output and Francis Harris/ Valentino Mora in The Panther Room - Output
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

The Magician is the alias of talented DJ/Producer, Stephen Fasano. One night not so long ago, he appeared from a place between space and time. Apparently he stepped into this world, materializing in a cloud of crystal stars and soft pink smoke. Some claim he's a former airline pilot who crashed an afterparty – some say it's all just an illusion, a well performed hoax. Previously a member of revered Balearic disco duo, Aeroplane, he disembarked that flight and boarded his own magical carpet ride in 2010. He released his debut single 'I Don't Know What To Do' on Kitsune in 2011, then joined forces with Peter (aka Yuksek) for three furthers EPs (Twist , Memory and On My Brain). However, most fans will probably know of The Magician for his killer remixes. Especially his re-work of Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers" in 2011 (which has had over 36 Million views on Youtube and chart topping placings across Europe) and Clean Bandit's " Rather Be" earlier this year.

Donna The Buffalo - City Winery
March 16, 2018 - New York

One of the most dynamic and determined bands continuously touring America for since 1989, Donna the Buffalo has created a community environment at their shows through their distinctive, groove-heavy, and danceable music. Donna the Buffalo is a band for the people that is accessible, positive, and memorable. With roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric American mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country, Donna's music often contains social and moral responsibility as core beliefs, and they are just simply fun to get out and celebrate life with. "For the dizzying array of styles and genres with which they work, Donna The Buffalo maintain a surprising level of consistency… over the course of their 25-year career, they retain a sharp focus that has helped them create some truly lasting music…" writes Elmore. "Few groups are this comfortable as performers, and even fewer would take as many risks." Donna the Buffalo is Jeb Puryear (vocals, electric guitar) and Tara Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, scrubboard) joined by David McCracken (Hammond organ, Honer Clavinet & piano), Kyle Spark (bass) and Mark Raudabaugh (drums). "It's been really fun with this lineup," Puryear says. "You get to the point where you're playing on a really high level, things are clicking and it's like turning on the key to a really good car. It just goes."

Bella's Bartok, Ellis Dyson & The Shambles - Mercury Lounge
March 16, 2018 - New York

To understand Bella's Bartok, imagine what you would get if Salvador Dali and Toulouse Lautrec were fronting the Moulin Rouge's house band, and you have the exuberant spectacle that is Bella's Bartok. Described as "about as much fun as you can have with your pants on" (Dan Wolovick, Two Way Monologues), this 7-piece powerhouse melds Bohemian Klezmer Punk with pop sensibilities into an eminently danceable party. The diversity of musicians that make up Bella's Bartok, combined with their boundless energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or three, but who's counting?). Their sound moves way beyond labels, pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern European music, referencing vaudeville and 20th century eclecticism. The Bella's Bartok line-up includes: Asher Putnam (Vocals and all-around entertainer), Dan Niederhauser (Bass and Vocals), Amory Drennan (Trombone/Banjo and Vocals), Crisco (Drums/Percussion and Trumpet), Alex Kogut (Accordion/Keyboard), and Gershon Rosen (trumpet). The band has shared the stage with musicians and acts such as Rubblebucket, Red Baraat, The Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, Kanye, Rough Francis, Beau Sasser's Escape Plan, West End Blend, Adam Ezra Group, Meat Puppets, World Inferno/Friendship Society, Rupa & the April Fishes, Arc Iris, and many more. With multiple awards under their belts, including The Valley Advocate's Best Band in the Valley 2014 and The Deli Magazine's Best of New England (twice!), this eclectic group of guys have carefully crafted a sound that is part strange and creepy, part pop gold. With an aura of theatricality, Bella's Bartok shows not only entertain, but they invite you to partake in the wild party they are having on stage, to involve yourself in the spectacle. Quite simply put- this is the band you should never miss, ever.

Dumpstaphunk - Brooklyn Bowl
March 16, 2018 - Brooklyn

Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans' best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville's funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like "Dancin' To The Truth" off their latest record, Dirty Word (Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note

Artist Bio Half Step is a group of dedicated fans & students of the Grateful Dead, capturing the spirit, improvisation, sound & complexity of Grateful Dead music. Established in 2004 on Long Island, Half Step has been mastering their craft while winning over crowds of veteran Deadheads, newcomers and non-Dead fans alike.

Only true fans that have experienced and studied the music with an extreme level of dedication and passion can accurately represent the superb body of work that the Grateful Dead have to offer. When seeing Half Step live, one can clearly see the attention to detail that the band has in putting on a viable Grateful Dead experience.

In the band's long history, they have undergone and overcome numerous incarnations. With each new member they come closer to refining their approach while consistently raising their standards. Half Step's current line up is by far the most seasoned and prepared to bring their show to the next level.

Anyone who has experienced the Grateful Dead in one way or another have formed a unique impression of their music. Half Step has the rare privilege to be in the position to share their collective impression with you.

Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper - Emelin Theatre
March 16, 2018 - Mamaroneck

Michael Cleveland is one of bluegrass music's great treasures. 10-time IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year, and 4-time Instrumental Group of the Year winner, Cleveland captured the attention of the bluegrass community as a child prodigy who performed on the Grand Ole Opry with Alison Krauss when he was only 13 years old. He became a viral video sensation with a virtuosic impromptu performance of "Jerusalem Ridge" that racked up over 6 million views in just a few days.

György Ligeti's life was filled with drama. He escaped Nazi extermination in a Jewish labor camp and eventually fled totalitarian oppression at the hands of the liberating Soviets in Hungary. His music's dense melodic webs and conflicting rhythms—along with a host of other experimental sounds, shapes, and forms—embody the dreams, fantasies, and nightmares of a life lived on the edge. Alarm Will Sound tells Ligeti's incredible story through a blend of music and recorded sounds in a concert that resembles a live podcast.

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). ETHEL is the Resident Ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar and Ensemble-in-Residence at Denison University.

Tomorrow and Thereafter - Demain et tous les autres jours - The Film Society of Lincoln Center
March 16, 2018 - New York

It's rare to see a mother-daughter portrait as idiosyncratic and personal as the one at the heart of the new film from acclaimed actress-director Noémie Lvovsky. She stars as an erratic Parisian mother steadily losing her grip on reality as her young daughter (impressive newcomer Luce Rodriguez) escapes into a fantastical world of her imagination: holding conversations with her pet owl, giving a biology class skeleton a proper burial, and even creating her own Christmas when her mom no shows. Dedicated to Lvovsky's own mother, Tomorrow and Thereafter is alternately enchanting and cathartic as it explores how the spirit of childhood bumps up against the often-bitter realities of adulthood. With Mathieu Amalric. U.S. Premiere

Time Machine/Mashina Vremeni - Back to the USA! - Terminal 5
March 16, 2018 - New York

After their sold-out North-American tour in 2010, Russia's legendary rock-and-roll band the "Time Machine" is finally back to the USA. This iconic group was founded by the songwriter and guitarist, Andrey Makarevich in the late 1960s and joined later by his colleagues and friends, Alexander Kutikov and Valery Efremov, who are still performing with the band. It is recognized as a "patriarch" of Russian rock music and achieved the cult status among several generations in the former Soviet Union. While originally the band drew their inspiration from The Beatles, Mashina Vremeni has developed a unique voice throughout the years, often changing its style, but most of the charm of their songs is in the melody and meaningful lyrics. The group created numerous classic hit songs that became a pop-culture phenomenon for anyone of the Russian descent. Many of their songs have found their way into Soviet movie hits, as well as popular theatrical plays.

Rings Of Saturn ft. Nekrogoblikon, Allegaeon, Entheos - Gramercy Theatre
March 17, 2018 - New York

With Proponent For Sentience Allegaeon have delivered a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept album that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, the record captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths. "With this record we're bringing ideas to the table that corroborate the fact that at this juncture, robotics as a field is moving forward at an alarming rate," explains vocalist Riley McShane. Nekrogoblikon "Who is Nekrogoblikon? Where did they come from? What is goblin metal? Why write songs about goblins? When will I stop feeling so alone?" The answer to all of your questions is it really doesn't matter. What you should instead be concerned with is the fact that your life is probably not nearly as satisfying as it could be, and Nekrogoblikon is here to fix that. Their new album Heavy Meta has not only been in the works for the last 49 years, but also is the first album in history to receive three Grammys (and even one Oscar) without ever having been completed or released. In 1987, psychiatrists worldwide began prescribing audio snippets of the in-progress album to patients in lieu of antidepressants, and by 2001 the album had gone "Secret Platinum."

Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound - Lincoln Center
Through March 17, 2018 - Bronx

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.

The Brobot Johnson Experience by Darian Dauchan - The Bushwick Starr
Through March 17, 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.

Christian Lopez - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 17, 2018 - New York

For singer, songwriter and guitarist Christian Lopez, Nashville has become a home away from home. That's where he comes to write. He rehearses there with his band. His debut album and Red Arrow, his brand new follow-up for Blaster Records, were recorded in Music City too. But his heart? His long-term dream? Well, they're rooted someplace far away from Music Row, to the place where he was born and knows he will never leave. "I've dedicated 100% of my life and time to my music. I work on some aspect of it every day. But I also see myself back in West Virginia someday, with a house and a big yard where I can relax. And a dog too," he adds quickly, with a laugh. "You could say that's the American Dream. For me, it's more specifically my West Virginian dream." Handsome, thoughtful and well spoken, Lopez is less concerned with the rock 'n' roll lifestyle than with spending time back home with friends, family and the old cars he and his dad like to tinker with. At the same time, as interest in his multiple talents heats up, this only feeds into his fascination with discovering places, ideas and music. Lopez has been stoking that fire for five years, since he began touring and learning how to turn a bunch of bar patrons into foot-stomping, cheering fans.

Little Tybee Reign of Kindo - Rough Trade NYC
March 17, 2018 - Brooklyn

One might think from their humble beginnings in the backwaters and basements of coastal Georgia to their headlining shows at some of Atlanta's most well known independent venues that the members of Little Tybee were the harbingers of some secret formula for artistic success. In reality, they are simply a group of friends who couldn't stop making music together if they tried. The core of each of their songs begins in the relentless and creative mind of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Brock Scott. The songs mature through the dedicated musicianship of 8-string guitarist Josh Martin, violinist Nirvana Kelly, bassist Ryan Donald, and percussionist Pat Brooks. Since the release of their first LP last year, they have discovered that change is not only inevitable, but indeed good. Though Little Tybee has had its fair share of challenges along the way, the group has discovered that the path to musical success lies in patience and perseverance. Little Tybee isn't afraid to experiment freely, even dangerously at times, to follow a musical idea to its ultimate end. This mentality has led the group to explore music that transcends genre and packs a much bigger punch than their modest title implies.

Since then he has produced multiple worldwide club hits, including “Silver Screen (Shower Scene)” (also a top 40 hit on the UK pop charts), “Kickdrum,” “Madame Hollywood,” “Ready To Wear,” and many albums like “Virgo Blaktro & The Movie Disco,” “He Was King,” “Kittenz & Thee Glitz,” “Devin Dazzle & The Neon Fever,” “Narrative Of Thee Blast Illusion,” “Virgo Blaktro & The Neon Disco,” “Son Of Analog,” and “I Know Electrikboy.” He has also collaborated with the man then known as P.

Her collaborations with artists across disciplines have allowed her to reach wider audiences as she works to break through cultural and musical borders. Her work as a member of Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble and her prevalent role in the recent documentary on the ensemble entitled The Music of Strangers has brought her work to the attention of an even larger audience. Wu Man joins the brilliant Huayin Shadow Puppet Band (formerly known as the Zhang Family Band) for performances of old tune traditional music with shadow puppetry. Amid vocal performances, the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band uses the yueqin, banhu, erhu, lute, fiddle and a variety of percussion instruments (including clappers, gongs, cymbals and a wood bench) to tell lively stories of rural life in remote China and draw the audience into places and sounds rarely heard in the West.

Friends--A Way to Like the World & People! - Aesthetic Realism Foundation
March 17, 2018 - New York

Children, like all people, are often confused and troubled, on the subject. For instance, children can wonder why a friendship has turned sour. Or two youngsters can be exclusive and sneer at others. In this class, children 5-12 will learn what real friendship is. No matter what young people are doing together--texting, playing catch, or doing homework--there is some-thing they want both encouraged and to encourage in someone all the time: to like the world, to know and be honestly affected by it. In the March 17th class, taught by Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy, girls and boys will discuss these kind and important sentences from the chapter ?Caring for Somebody,? in the book Children?s Guide to Parents & Other Matters, by Eli Siegel, the founder of Aesthetic Realism: "When you care for somebody, James, you're happy that this person is alive, and you're happy to show your happiness; and you want what that person is to be more and more you; and what you are to be more and more that person; and at the same time, you want to be fair to every other person and every other thing and not to forget about them. In fact, at this time, James, you care for other people more, because you care for one person you can see by herself." Children will be learning how to be a true friend. Boys and girls will find out how they can be fair to other children, including of another skin tone or cultural background. What a wonderful, deep, and necessary way of seeing!

Steve Byrne - Gotham Comedy Club
Through March 17, 2018 - New York

In just a few short years, Steve Byrne has risen through the ranks of the comedy world to become one of the industry's most innovative and sought-after performers. With his high-energy, physical style of comedy, Byrne has evolved throughout the years into an extremely versatile entertainer that delivers on a day-to-day basis. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Steve Byrne was born to a Korean mother and an Irish father. His unique background has given him the base comedic material for his first television show, Sullivan & Son. Byrne released a one hour standup comedy special, CHAMPION, on Netflix which then became a live show on the road, Steve Byrne & the Cast of Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour, along with his castmates: Ahmed Ahmed, Owen Benjamin and Roy Wood Jr. After winning TBS' cutthroat competition, the Myspace Standup or Sitdown Comedy Challenge, Byrne was hurtled into a brilliant television and film career. As his popularity began to expand, Byrne was featured in his very own half-hour Comedy Central Presents which was soon voted as one of the best specials of all time in the Comedy Central Standup Showdown. His hilarious standup has been seen on NBC's The Tonight Show, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS's The Late Late Show and BET's Comic View. In 2008, Byrne's first one-hour special, Steve Byrne's Happy Hour, premiered on Comedy Central and further cemented his star status. Packing an impressively wide range of appeal, Byrne's comedy soon landed him on the The History of the Joke on the History Channel and the Discovery Channel's The Science of Laughter. He has since appeared on some of TV's hottest shows including ABC's The Middle, The Chapelle Show, G4's The International Sexy Ladies Show, The Howard Stern Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, The Very Funny Show, The Byrne Identity on Comedy Central and was a series regular on NBC's The Real Wedding Crashers.

Valor, Agravio Y Mujer - Repertorio Español
March 17, 2018 - New York

In this comedy of honor, Ana Caro criticizes the customs of her era and the position of women in the social order while ridiculing through parody the erotic myth of Don Juan. The protagonist, Leonor, seeks to recover her lost honor against Don Juan who made a false promise of marriage while seducing her. To revenge herself, Leonor dresses in male attire (a common technique in Spanish Golden Age Theatre), calls herself Leonardo, and pretends to be a rival suitor for her hand. Don Juan has already moved to seduce the Duchess Estela, who in turn falls in love with "Leonardo." After a series of deceits and much ado, Leonor denounces Don Juan and regains her honor by forcing him into marriage with her. Although a typical finale for a 17th century Spanish play, the unconventional aspect is that a woman has solved her own misfortune without the help of a man.

She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set-back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face-to-face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth.

March 17, 2018 - New York

We are often caught up in what we do not have, what we want to achieve, and where we want to go. While goals are admirable, it's easy to neglect the present while thinking in future terms. This thought pattern can result in wasted time. Dr. Leah Weiss, Principal Teacher and Trainer for Stanford University's Compassion Cultivation Program, takes the Brainwave stage to explore the Buddhist concepts that inform our understanding of the future by making more effective use of time being in the present. She'll engage in dialogue with maestro Roger Nierenberg whose renowned music and learning program, The Music Paradigm, has transformed the leadership journeys of hundreds of businesses and organizations around the world. The duo will present an interactive evening that includes music, mindfulness, meditation, and dialogue about how they intersect.

Phony Ppl - Blue Note Late Night Residency Vol. 2 - Blue Note Jazz Club
March 17, 2018 - New York

Phony Ppl either crash-landed from the past or the future: critics and fans can't decide. Since throwing warehouse shows around New York in 2011, the five Brooklyn natives have tossed together vintage astral funk, soulful complex R&B, and dusted-out hip-hop which evokes a newfound genre-less form of music originating in the basement of a Bedford-Stuyvesant home studio where the band begin making music together in high school. Co-founded by lead vocalist Elbee Thrie and keyboardist Aja Grant, whose brother Bari is the bassist, the band self-released hits like "Why iii Love the Moon" which is featured in EA Sports' NBA Live 16 and "End of the Night," and was praised by none other than Tyler the Creator as one of his favorite songs of 2016. The dynamic quintet also features Elijah Rawk on guitar and drummer Matthew Byas. Together they have been direct support on tours with like-minded experimental performers Theophilus London, Erykah Badu and The Roots. Their most recent effort, 2015's "Yesterday's Tomorrow" gained rotation on BBC1 and Odd Future Radio, and the L.A. Times applauded it's "meteoric rise" via social media, with the album peaking at #6 on the iTunes R&B chart. The band is releasing a new, and as of now untitled, follow up LP in 2018.

Paquito D'Rivera: To Bird with Strings - Rose Theater
Through March 17, 2018 -

NEA Jazz Master, Carnegie Hall Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and 14-time Grammy Award winner Paquito D'Rivera is one of the greatest musicians alive. A peerless virtuoso on the saxophone and clarinet, D'Rivera is a living, breathing institution in jazz, Latin, and contemporary classical music. He formed the groundbreaking group Irakere with Chucho Valdés, worked extensively in Dizzy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra, won Grammy Awards for his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, and performs with top contemporary ensembles like the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and London Philharmonic. One of D'Rivera's favorite albums is Charlie Parker's Bird with Strings, a definitive recording that combined Parker's emotional maturity and melodic mastery with romantic string arrangements. In this performance, D'Rivera exemplifies Jazz at Lincoln Center's commitment to presenting cherished masterpieces alongside new ideas; as he puts it, this is "To Bird with Strings" — a thoughtfully updated program that includes selections from the original Bird with Strings, unrecorded arrangements from the project, and new takes on Parker's work with Latin jazz legends like Machito and Chico O'Farrill. As demonstrated in D'Rivera's sold-out Bird with Strings concerts in 2013, this program puts D'Rivera's jaw-dropping solos on full display, thanks to expanded arrangements that highlight the improvisational prowess of D'Rivera and his fellow ensemble members.

Des Bishop - Carolines on Broadway
Through March 17, 2018 - New York

Des Bishop is back with a show about getting older. Shocked by turning 40 Des has already caught himself saying things like "in my day." Not married with any kids, Des thoroughly enjoys being the backseat parent amongst his friends. This show looks at parenting 1979 Vs. 2014, why Des is glad he's not a teenager nowadays, being an uncle, erectile dysfunction and why Des was inspired by his 15 year old niece to end period shaming. Its straight stand up at its best. BIO Now a massive star in Ireland, native New Yorker, Des moved from Queens to Ireland in his mid-teens in 1990. He first came to prominence with his extraordinary TV series The Des Bishop Work Experience (2004), where he lived on minimum wage in a series of different jobs in Ireland. Mixing this documentary footage with stand-up, the series became one of the most talked-about of the year, and propelled Des into national stardom. In 2006, he embarked on his second critically acclaimed TV series, Joy In The Hood, where he taught stand-up comedy in disadvantaged areas in four major Irish cities. Another hugely successful live tour followed including invitations to the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and the Melbourne Comedy Festival in Australia. In 2007/8 Des embarked on his most ambitious and challenging TV programme to date: he decided to learn Irish from scratch and perform a 60 minute stand-up comedy routine in the Irish language. Over the course of 12 months, he lived with a family in the West Of Ireland honing his craft and in March 2008, the first episode of In The Name Of The Fada was broadcast. In The Name Of The Fada has prompted a radical re-think about how to teach Irish in schools and it unsurprisingly won the Irish Film and Television Award (IFTA) for Best Television Series later that year.

Mat Maneri 'Dust' - Cornelia Street Cafe
March 17, 2018 - New York

Over the course of a twenty-five year career, Mat Maneri has defined the voice of the viola and violin in jazz and improvised music and "has changed the way the jazz world listens to the Violin & Viola" All About Jazz. Born in Brooklyn in 1969, Maneri has established an international reputation as one of the most original and compelling artists of his generation, praised for his high degree of individualism, a distinctive marriage of jazz and microtonal music, and his work with 20th century icons of improvised music. In 1990, Mat co-founded the legendary Joe Maneri Quartet with his father, drummer Randy Peterson and bassists Ed Schuller and John Lockwood. The quartet's recordings for ECM Records, Hatology and Leo Records were widely acknowledged by critics and fellow musicians as among the most important developments in 20th century improvised music. Maneri's 1999 solo debut on ECM Records marked his emergence as a musician with a singular, uncompromised voice. Since then, the long list of musicians with whom he has worked includes icons such as Cecil Taylor, Paul Bley, Paul Motian and William Parker, as well as influential bandleaders such as Joe Morris, Vijay Iyer, Matthew Shipp, Marilyn Crispell, Joelle Leandre, Kris Davis, Tim Berne and Craig Taborn. Maneri's recordings as a leader (trio, quartet and quintet) have been documented on Hatology, Aum Fidelity, Leo Records and Thirsty Ear.

Rome '78. 1978. Directed by James Nares - The Museum of Modern Art
March 17, 2018 - Manhattan

Rome '78. 1978. USA. Directed by James Nares. With David McDermott, Eric Mitchell, Lydia Lunch, Kristian Hoffman, Bradley Field, John Lurie, Anya Phillips, James Chance, Patti Astor, Pat Place. Digital video from Super8mm. 90 min. Experimental filmmaker Tony Conrad pointed out in 1980 that a number of the most important Lower East Side filmmakers were European—French (Eric Mitchell), Swedish (Anders Grafstrom), British (James Nares), etc. By then, less than two years into the small-gauge film revolution, Nares's Rome '78, a travesty of the sword-and-sandal genre, shot in Central Park and other NYC locations passing for ancient Rome, was already acknowledged as a masterpiece of the movement. Intentionally co-opting the amateurism and instant accessibility of the Super8 format, its clumsy, anachronistic production values comically reflected on the phony, staged theatrics of mainstream films. David McDermott's hedonistic rants on city life as the egomaniacal Caligula, Eric Mitchell's chain-smoking punk centurion, Lydia Lunch's emasculating odalisque, and the cast's do-it-yourself drag costuming all derived from the gender-questioning Downtown scene. Although an unimpressed critic for the Los Angeles Reader at the time described No Wave filmmaking as "home movies" for the "talk-y, pose-y punk elite of New York [to] crack private jokes with each other," the bloodletting and sense of doom that characterizes much of the work, and Rome '78 in particular, gives it weight and resonance that has stood the test of time. Restoration premiere. Preserved by The Museum of Modern Art.

Papo Vázquez Quartet - Pregones Theater
March 17, 2018 - Bronx

The concert features arrangements by Papo Vázquez and Rick Germanson Back by popular demand, Papo Vazquez and his Mighty Pirate Troubadour Jazz Quartet bring us their daring exploration of J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations. The concert features Vázquez's and pianist Rick Germanson's arrangements for trombone, bass, piano and saxophone. Originally, the Goldberg Variations, is a work for harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach, consisting of an aria and a set of 30 variations. First published in 1741, the work is considered to be one of the most important examples of variation form. The Variations are named after Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who may have been the first performer. With his inimitable trademark style, Papo Vazquez injects a rumbling dose of Latin Jazz energy to J.S. Bach's iconic score! Not to be missed!

Red Italy. 1979. Directed By Eric Mitchell - The Museum of Modern Art
March 17, 2018 - Manhattan

Red Italy. 1979. USA. Directed by Eric Mitchell. With Jennifer Miro, Patti Astor, Harald Vogl, Scott Wardell, Tom Wright, John Lurie, Arto Lindsay, Mitchell, Rene Ricard. Digital video from Super8mm. 60 min. In Rome a fashion model, bored by the wealthy man keeping her, first seduces a black American GI and then falls for a radical, rock-singing laborer. Mitchell's second feature references film noir, the declarative political style of the French New Wave, and the Neorealist cinema of Michelangelo Antonioni and Pier Paolo Pasolini (whose 1961 Accattone is quoted in a scene Mitchell filmed undercover at a Manhattan arthouse). Though it was promoted as "the Italian film with a twist," the performances of Downtown regulars Astor, Lurie, Lindsay, and Ricard root the film in the New York club scene, a milieu Mitchell would capture most successfully with Underground USA the following year. Shot in Super8 and exhibited on video (a practice rival filmmaker Michael Oblowitz credited with giving moving images an "appropriated artiness"), Red Italy opened at the New Cinema Mitchell founded with Becky Johnston and James Nares. Utilizing elements derived from the original film and video release versions, the Museum's restoration was produced in collaboration with the filmmaker and screens 40 years to the week from its premiere in 1979. Preserved by The Museum of Modern Art.

In Japanese; English subtitles. 133 min. In order to pay off his late brother's debts to a yakuza—and to continue his 16mm rooftop repertory cinema program—young Shuji (Hidetoshi Nishijima) accepts the oddest of odd jobs: a human punching bag for the angry patrons of a dingy boxing club. Absorbing blow after blow for his art, Shuji counts down the titles of his 100 favorite films.

Matador! Soul Sounds, Eddie Roberts, Alan Evans, Chris Spies, Kevin Scott, Adryon de León and Kimberly Dawson - Brooklyn Bowl
March 17, 2018 - Brooklyn

Matador! Soul Sounds is a band loosely based on the concept of Spanish bullfighting. A common misconception in America is that bullfighting is a feat of one man versus one bull—in reality, bullfighting is largely a team effort by a matador and his cuadrilla. Born from the vision of Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds) and Alan Evans (Soulive) their fierce cuadrilla consists of keyboardist Chris Spies and bassist Kevin Scott (Jimmy Herring) as the band's "banderilleros". Adding a feminine energy to the band are Adryon de León and Kimberly Dawson (Pimps of Joytime) on vocals. Combining the dynamism of each band leader, the music they have created is brand new, hard hitting and drenched with their shared musical passions - jazz, funk & soul. The band made their official World Debut at Live for Live Music's Brooklyn Comes Alive 2017 and will be touring in the spring of 2018 behind their first full length EP.

Music Director Skip La Plante creates scores performed on traditional as well as home-made instruments by La Plante with guest artist, violinist Concetta Abate. The program will conclude with Udjat, a trio made by Osserman in 1985, featuring Lauren Ferguson, Cori Kresge, and Emily Vetsch.

Chris Kasper - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
March 17, 2018 - New York

"Nothing cuts to the core like a simple song," says Chris Kasper. More than a dozen years into his acclaimed career, the singer/songwriter gets back to the bluesy basics with his fifth album, O, the Fool. Inspired by Delta blues, folk music, and the string arrangements of Hollywood film scores, O, the Fool was recorded on both ends of an 800-mile move that took Kasper from Philadelphia to Nashville. He'd already spent much of his adulthood on the road, traveling from city to city, building his fanbase one show at a time. Meanwhile, back at home, his friends were putting down roots and starting families of their own. Kasper couldn't help but question his own choices, and it's that swirl of contrasting feelings — uncertainty, determination, and wanderlust — that fuels O, the Fool. "It's about traveling," he says of the 13-song, self-produced album, "and then second-guessing your travels once you've arrived at your destination. It's about coming to terms with the thing that makes you think, 'Ok, maybe this isn't the right place for me, but I am here, so I should make it work. This is where life has brought me.'" The album's title was born during a coffeeshop meeting with a friend, who spilled a pack of tarot cards across the table. The first card was the Fool: a traveler with a bag slung over his shoulder, headed toward some unknown destination. The illustration reminded Kasper of himself. Weeks later, another friend found the same card and brought it to Kasper, saying the two troubadours resembled one another. Kasper agreed. "The card embodies that feeling of wandering," he explains. "It reminded me of the journey that music takes you on, and you can't predict where it's gonna take you." From a songwriting perspective, O, the Fool is a simple, straightforward album. The chord progressions are basic, influenced by the no-frills approach of blues musicians and early 20th century folksingers. The arrangements, on the other hand, are downright lush, with Kasper taking inspiration from the epic, sweeping scores of old western movies. He engineered the string parts himself, working with multi-instrumentalist Kiley Ryan — who contributions to the album include viola, cello, and violin — to create orchestral swells. Cinematic and beautiful, the songs on O, the Fool show Kasper's capabilities not only as a songwriter and evocative vocalist, but as a producer, too.

Wu Man and Huayin Shadow Puppet Band - New York Society for Ethical Culture
March 17, 2018 - New York

Recognized as the world's premier pipa virtuoso, leading ambassador of Chinese music and Grammy Award-nominated musician Wu Man has carved out a career as a soloist, educator, and composer who has given her lute-like instrument (which has a history of over 2,000 years in China) a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. Her collaborations with artists across disciplines have allowed her to reach wider audiences as she works to break through cultural and musical borders. Her work as a member of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and her prevalent role in the recent documentary on the ensemble entitled The Music of Strangers has brought her work to the attention of an even larger audience. Wu Man joins the brilliant Huayin Shadow Puppet Band (formerly known as the Zhang Family Band) for performances of old tune traditional music with shadow puppetry. Amid vocal performances, the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band uses the yueqin, banhu, erhu, lute, fiddle and a variety of percussion instruments (including clappers, gongs, cymbals and a wood bench) to tell lively stories of rural life in remote China and draw the audience into places and sounds rarely heard in the West.

Shane Smith & The Saints, Flatland Cavalry - Mercury Lounge
March 17, 2018 - New York

Play just the first 10 seconds of "The Mountain," which opens Geronimo, the latest and most ambitious release from Shane Smith & The Saints. Robust a cappella, four-part harmonies set the stage for a saga of family tragedy, a young son's revenge and a blaze burning eternally in a Pennsylvania mine. The vivid lyrics, powerful vocals and thumping four-beat drums throughout this song are reason enough for lovers of creative roots music to celebrate. From their home base in Austin through performances across the country (17 states) and abroad (Ireland), these five gentlemen have not just stuck stubbornly to their musical and lyrical convictions. They've defied audience expectations by delivering incendiary shows, each one ignited by the band's ability to unleash, feed from and feed back the energy of the crowd — in spite of the fact that they don't fit easily into any musical category.

6 String Drag - Hill Country NYC
March 17, 2018 - New York

"So thrilled to get to see 6 String Drag again. They're as great as ever. Like reconnecting with a long lost friend." - Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers) "Led by frontman Kenny Roby, 6 String Drag merges the band's early punk roots with no-frills southern honky tonk in a show that is sure to see your southern pride surge. Roby's story telling excels, too, making the band's songs resonate long after the amplifiers have gone quiet." - Charlotte Viewpoint After 16 years in hibernation, 6 String Drag is back to remind us a few things about real rock 'n' roll. In the late '90s, the Carolina quartet stood out as pioneers of the nascent alt-country movement. Their Steve Earle-produced LP, High Hat remains an undisputed classic of its era.

March 17, 2018 - Brooklyn

Propelled to the forefront of today's scene by her flawlessly executed sleazy house and techno sounds, Nicole Moudaber is now an unstoppable force. Two of her recent remixes topped the Beatport Techno Chart for weeks on end. The Moudaber mix of Sian & Mladen Tomec's 'Front Pocket' on Octopus and her version of Carl Cox 'Chemistry' on Intec, which also scooped a prestigious IDMA at Miami's Winter Music Conference, winning the award for 'Best Minimal/Techno Track'. Killer original tracks for other labels including Drumcode, 8Sided Dice, Kling Klong, Leena Music and Waveform Recordings have all furthered her reputation for phenomenal ass-shaking music built around tight production. Out in the clubs, her technical ability has turned heads from Rio to Montreal. Working the mix from the off, locked into her distinctive groove, Nicole on stage is a sight to behold. With key 2012 residencies including a fourth season at Carl Cox's weekly parties at Space Ibiza, plus regular headline slots at Cielo and Pacha in NYC, her global calendar is in rude health.

Home Tapingrome '78. 1978. Directed By James Nares - The Museum of Modern Art
March 17, 2018 - Manhattan

Rome '78. 1978. USA. Directed by James Nares. With David McDermott, Eric Mitchell, Lydia Lunch, Kristian Hoffman, Bradley Field, John Lurie, Anya Phillips, James Chance, Patti Astor, Pat Place. Digital video from Super8mm. 90 min. Experimental filmmaker Tony Conrad pointed out in 1980 that a number of the most important Lower East Side filmmakers were European—French (Eric Mitchell), Swedish (Anders Grafstrom), British (James Nares), etc. By then, less than two years into the small-gauge film revolution, Nares's Rome '78, a travesty of the sword-and-sandal genre, shot in Central Park and other NYC locations passing for ancient Rome, was already acknowledged as a masterpiece of the movement. Intentionally co-opting the amateurism and instant accessibility of the Super8 format, its clumsy, anachronistic production values comically reflected on the phony, staged theatrics of mainstream films. David McDermott's hedonistic rants on city life as the egomaniacal Caligula, Eric Mitchell's chain-smoking punk centurion, Lydia Lunch's emasculating odalisque, and the cast's do-it-yourself drag costuming all derived from the gender-questioning Downtown scene. Although an unimpressed critic for the Los Angeles Reader at the time described No Wave filmmaking as "home movies" for the "talk-y, pose-y punk elite of New York [to] crack private jokes with each other," the bloodletting and sense of doom that characterizes much of the work, and Rome '78 in particular, gives it weight and resonance that has stood the test of time. Restoration premiere. Preserved by The Museum of Modern Art.

With talent and Dead-ication, Stella confidently delivers tunes from all stages of the Grateful Dead's 30-year run: From hits like "Truckin'," "Touch of Grey" and "Shakedown," to the groovin' late 60s jams of "St. Stephen," "Lovelight" and "Hard to Handle," to the most complex tunes from deep in the repertoire like "Unbroken Chain," "Help on the Way/Slipknot" and "Here Comes Sunshine." Most of all, Stella captures the unique sound and adventurous spirit of the music and that special feeling and community unique to Grateful Dead shows. The attention to the details of sound and love of the music are apparent from the first note of a Stella show to the last. The band has developed a strong following that follows them from gig to gig and has forged a community of fans in the region.

Ethel, the String Quartet Redefining Concert Music, Continues Popular Met Museum Concert Series - Metropolitan Museum of Art
March 17, 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). ETHEL is the Resident Ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Balcony Bar and Ensemble-in-Residence at Denison University.

Edmund Clark: the Day the Music Died - International Center of Photography
Through March 18, 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.

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.

The Lion King - Minskoff Theatre

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.

The Blade Runner Saga: SERIES - Museum of the Moving Image
Through March 18, 2018 - Queens

Thirty-five years after the release of Blade Runner, the visual language of contemporary science fiction is still drawing from the dark and rainy vision of Los Angeles set in an imagined future. This past year saw a direct continuation of that vision with Blade Runner 2049, trading rain for snow to suit Canadian director Denis Villeneuve's sensibilities as he pushed past the legacy left by the original, asking new questions and expanding the scope both technically and emotionally. Both films are presented here on the big screen, including Ridley Scott's definitive Final Cut (2007). On view in the Behind the Screen galleries is the Tyrell Corporation model, used in the original Blade Runner.

Then They Came for Me - ICP Museum
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II examines a dark episode in US history when, in the name of national security, the government incarcerated 120,000 citizens and legal residents during World War II without due process or other constitutional protections to which they were entitled. Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, set in motion the forced removal and imprisonment of all people of Japanese ancestry (citizens and non-citizens alike) living on or near the West Coast. This exhibition features works by renowned photographers Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others documenting the eviction of Japanese Americans and permanent Japanese residents from their homes as well as their subsequent lives in incarceration camps. Also included are photographs by incarcerated photographer Toyo Miyatake. This timely exhibition reexamines this history and presents new research telling the stories of the individuals whose lives were upended due to racial bigotry.

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.

Last year, more than 100 relay teams participated. Relay teams will compete for prize money, including $1,000 for fastest male, female and co-ed teams and a $1,000 bonus for any team that runs less than 2 hours.

Jimmy Greene's Love In Action - Jazz Standard
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

In the strength of its compositions and the passion of its performances, Jimmy Greene's forthcoming Mack Avenue album, Flowers (Beautiful Life Volume 2) is a more than worthy successor to Beautiful Life. That genre–spanning CD juxtaposed the hardcore instrumental jazz for which the saxophonist is best known with traditional spirituals, contemporary Christian music, standard ballads and three original songs framing his own lyrics. Beautiful Life featured a world–class rhythm section (Renee Rosnes, piano; Christian McBride, bass; Lewis Nash, drums), augmented at various points by guitarists Pat Metheny and Jonathan DuBose, Jr.; pianists Kenny Barron and Cyrus Chestnut; vocalists Kurt Elling, Javier Colon and Latanya Farrell; spoken word from Tony Award®-winning actress Anika Noni Rose; a 13–piece string ensemble from the Hartford Symphony Orchestra; as well as an accomplished children's choir. Renee Rosnes and bassist John Patitucci will join Jimmy Greene on our stage this week to "bring it all back home" to the essence of jazz.

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. When Carole's personal life begins falling apart, she responds by stepping out of the shadows with Tapestry, a deeply personal collection of songs that becomes one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Through March 18, 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.

Tom Leaver - McKenzie Fine Art
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

The imagery in Tom Leaver's paintings is entirely imaginary. The paintings are recognizable as landscapes, but they do not depict any specific place the artist has seen nor are they based on photographs of any topography or locale. Instead, the artist chooses landscape imagery as a vehicle to express emotional, psychological and spiritual states of mind. Leaver creates his paintings using his gloved hands, applying the oil paint in sweeps of his palm or the side of his hand, or in fingertip daubs. The only brush he uses is for the application of turpentine, and a rag is employed to pull the solvent through the paint or wipe it away. Overall, there is sfumato-like softness in the paint application, a change from the more defined and energetic mark-making of his previous body of work. There has also been a subtle and intuitive shift toward a subdued palette of varying brown and gold tonalities, offset by lighter passages in the sky above or bodies of water below. The gentle and atmospheric space Leaver produces in these new paintings is deep, mysterious, and seemingly endless. Leaver cites as influences Chinese landscape painting, which is suggestive rather than literal, and Japanese enso painting, comprised of lone circular forms, often with no defined starting point. He notes that his own paintings always indicate a passage, also without a clear beginning or ending. Turner's later works, with their unresolved quality (but not their strong color) are also influential. However, Leaver's spiritual practice informs his work most fully, in the way the paintings are an expression of being present-minded in the action of creation. He notes, "I was never taught linear perspective, color theory, form and shadow, or even how to mix paints. My teacher would say, just paint. When I began practicing yoga I was told to just practice, all was coming. I started sitting zazen several years ago and my instruction was to just sit and watch my breath. The three practices have become one daily ritual, feeding into and off of each other. This latest body of work is a contin

69th Street Band - Paris Blues

Three on a Match | IATI Theater | 50 Years - IATI Theater
Through March 18, 2018 - New York

An allegorical drama examining the legacy of state terrorism in Latin America, and "Disappearances," as a technique of South American politics. A decaying hotel in a forsaken South American city houses an unlikely band of three. Each of these three represents a people or a place that have been historically marginalized or lost to history entirely. There is a charming Haberdasher who speaks in standard British. There is a Bellboy (who happens to be a girl) who can't--or won't--speak at all. And there is a regal Queen of a lost island nation which has recently sunk into the Atlantic Ocean. She speaks in Castilian tones. Cocooned from the daily chaos outside, these three do their best to create a life of civility, order, and even elegance. One day, they are threatened by a dangerous interloper: a handsome, shadowy man with an American passport. Initially he is simply treated as an unwelcome visitor, but he soon takes over the hotel using the tools of diplomacy and tyranny. Isolated from the rest of the city by civil strife and government-driven disinformation, they must either submit or fight back. "Disappearance" hangs over them as a universal threat. Each wears different "masks" throughout the play in their efforts to resist the power of the intruder. Sometimes, the play moves into absurdism. Often it is delightfully funny. Other times, the mystery of identity and betrayal erupts in harrowing tension. A New Play Written by Rhett Martinez. Directed by Eric Parness. Starring: Rosa Rodriguez, Angus Hepburn, Elisa De la Roche, Sean Phillips. End Time: 3:00 pm. Category: Arts | Performing Arts | Theatre. Artists / Speakers: Rhett Martinez, Eric Parness, Rosa Rodriguez, Angus Hepburn, Elisa de la Roche, Sean Phillips, Winston Estevez, Vivian Deangelo, Andre Baruffi, Warren Stiles, Miguel Valderrama, Haydn Diaz, Gabriel Garcia, Anthony Fernandez, Viviane Galloway, Maxwell A.

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.

Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we're all part of a global family.

Jersey Boys - New World Stages -Stage One
Through March 19, 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.

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.

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.

Stein | Holum Projects: the Wholehearted [New York Premiere] - Abrons Art Center
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Listen to the beats / The rhythm of my Bushwick streets." Brooklyn impresario Modesto Flako Jimenez conjures his beloved borough in this bilingual elegy, told through poems, projections, and music. With lyrical brilliance and irreverent play, ¡Oye! For My Dear Brooklyn complicates our perceptions of race, language, and gentrification and calls us to be truly present to ask the question: "What is my moral worth?"Spectators have a ringside seat for this "dazzling tour-de-force" (Los Angeles Times), a blood pumping revenge tragedy and intimate tribute to lost love. Once a championship boxer, Dee Crosby was taken down in her prime by her own husband. Now that Charlie is freshly released from prison for her attempted murder, Dee is hell-bent on revenge, no matter the cost. But only Dee's true love, Carmen, can provide her with redemption. By turns "potent and enigmatic" (San Diego Union Tribune) and "boldly arresting" (Boston Globe), THE WHOLEHEARTED is an unsettling ride through the human heart.

Cathode Love Presents - Music Box Theater
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Cathode Love is a book and companion LP featuring carefully curated writings and musical content focused around a central, celebratory impulse of suggestive, decadent, and symbolically-charged works in film, theory, visual art, poetry, fiction and essays, all tapping on the door of a new, synaesthetic sensibility. Cathode Love is wishing to move us toward a new aesthetic culture, one that resides "away from the mundane reality" (and certainly from banal art). An irregular almanac of irregular pleasures, an untimely messenger, a hope for catching a glimpse of light in the mirror of impossible beauty across shattered art-forms...Cathode Love, in its book/LP form, is published in the spirit of an aesthetic treatise of sorts. An exploratory document, and finally an accidental anthology of suggestions to run with. From the fiery intensity of Antonin Artaud's language of theater to the passionate elevation of sleaze to academic loftiness in Stephen Thrower's writings, this strange new collection of wild flowers if a trip to the jungle, not the zoo. Nothing is caged, all is free. And that is it's beauty. Cathode Love is, at the very least, a new window to actively "dream into" regarding expression and interpretation. From simply seeing "bad" films in a new light to high-minded semiotic theory, to spiritually profound synaesthetic experiences of art, it presents a case on its own accord. It simply is a vantage point, and needs to be observed. From the films of the language-shattering "fantastique" tradition, all the way to mystical essays on semiotics by Michel Leiris, Cathode Love is the framework of the mirror we can dream into.

Through March 31, 2018 - New York

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 - Museum of the City of New York
Through April 01, 2018 - Manhattan

Forty years ago, dirt-cheap rents and an edgy vibe lured arty types to swarm downtown venues like CBGB's and the Mudd Club. One such place was Club 57 on St. Marks Place, which hosted evenings like the "Monster Movie Club" and "Name That Noise: A Punk Rock Game Show," and attracted artists and performers such as Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, John Sex and Ann Magnuson. The scrappy venue is now the subject of this MoMA retrospective, which looks back to a moment when New York was dirtier and more dangerous—but also more alive with creative possibilities.

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.

In Practice: Another Echo - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

SculptureCenter is pleased to announce Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice, SculptureCenter's open call commissioning program for emerging artists. Exemplifying the spirit of SculptureCenter's mission, In Practice provides new ways to discover the most innovative artwork, foster experimentation, and give participants the opportunity to develop and present new work. The exhibition features newly commissioned works by: Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau, Nobutaka Aozaki, Cudelice Brazelton, Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall, Carey Denniston, Jules Gimbrone, Baseera Khan, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Courtney McClellan, Jon Wang, Carmen Winant, and Lachell Workman and is curated by Allie Tepper, SculptureCenter's 2018 Curatorial Fellow. An echo suggests an interaction and a return: an emanation which hits a surface and reverberates as instantaneous memory — a powerful tool for envisioning and rewriting history in the present. The word "another" itself suggests recurrence, but with difference. In Practice: Another Echo brings together the work of twelve artists and artist teams engaged in reshaping experiences and forms of public space. Often responding to imposed sociopolitical conditions, the artists in this exhibition project voice and language, and make use of responsive and vernacular materials. Rather than glance at the past with nostalgia, these artists share a preoccupation with the present moment: obscuring, adapting, and subverting surrounding signs and physical structures in order to witness, reinvent, and survive the often agitated terrain of contemporary life. Across their work, which encompasses sculpture, live sound, video, and drawing, questions persist about how the self, in the midst of deep inner-processing, can converse with the present. How do we, in an ailing and unaccommodating society, extend ourselves out into the world, particularly when what we need so often is sanctuary? Throughout the exhibition, symbols appear marked on walls, imprinted and pasted as if in the caves of Lascaux, or the walls of prisons where inmates inscribed their opposition to power. Cudelice Brazelton wields a heat gun with the grace of a barber, burning fade designs—an ancient vernacular carried on bodies across history—into the architecture of the building. Nobutaka Aozaki also collects a visual vernacular, in his case the graffiti tags made on USPS label 228 stickers that he has found stuck onto surfaces throughout New York City. Other artists' practices involve reading body language made in response to conditions of imposition. Juliana Cerqueira Leite looks to the media, in particular the gestures of reporters and civilians sharing their experiences of humanitarian crises, focusing on moments when the body attempts to reenact the experience of an event that is beyond their agency, which she echoes through the movements of her body in clay. Carmen Winant amasses instructional images of women engaged in self-defense from a large archive that she began, subconsciously, during the 2016 presidential election campaign. Revisionist encounters with existing monuments concern artists such as Baseera Khan, who addresses a Richard Serra sculpture installed outside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, TX, from under an "acoustic sound blanket." Khan—a queer femme Muslim-American disinherited from Serra's lineage—presents footage of the event in a Karaoke Spiritual Center of Love, set to music chosen according to a protective "logic of armor," by artists such as Rihanna, Bibi Bourelly, and Kevin Abstract. Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall's installation considers the current plight of American immigration, by revisiting the paths that Blacks and early twentieth century Bengali sailors took to the United States, through the holds of slave ships and steamship boiler rooms. "The New Colossus"—the sonnet by Emma Lazarus engraved on the Statue of Liberty base—echoes through the installation: translated into Yoruba and Bengali, and set to traditional music by the artists' collaborators Moses Mabayoje and Monjula Datta. Lachell Workman and Courtney McClellan both cast a quiet, haunting eye on the iterative cycles of injustice that occur though the criminal justice system. Workman's abstract sculptural installation references the vernacular of the street-side memorial and RIP T-shirt, confronting us with a vision of human and environmental neglect, while a nearby slide projector casts a spotlight on the wall, the incessant churn of the slides, counting. Courtney McClellan exhibits a new video that examines the insidious relationship between performance and the law, through her ongoing study of the American Mock Trial Association, and the team at the University of Georgia where she teaches. Witnessing life-forms in moments of transition and growth preoccupies several of the artists in the exhibition. Elena Ailes & Simon Belleau assemble a series of leather totems—"muted bodies" that push against their surroundings with quiet, expressive force, and look to nature's slowest processes, the growth of fungus, and foreground touch and duration as reparative, rather than reactionary modes for weathering a long, slow process of healing. Jules Gimbrone creates work that asserts the presence of the flexible, nuanced body, in particular the sounding of queer subjects that are regularly silenced in the public sphere, through an ecology of transmorphic, responsive materials and audio. Jon Wang presents an immersive, live video and sound environment that meditates on the metamorphic lifecycle of silkworms, inviting viewers into the artist's intimate pursuit of queer architecture, psychosexual resistance, and radical transformation. Carey Denniston presents videos edited from an ongoing FaceTime dialogue with Avery, her thirteen-year-old niece and a digital native living in Eastern Washington. The videos are portraits of "a space of processing" that moves through seemingly banal, but honest, conversations about friendship, to Avery's digestion of current events. The In Practice program offers emerging artists curatorial and financial support to create new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. Artists are selected through a multi-stage process after submitting work through an open call. Past In Practice participants include: Korakrit Arunanondchai, Fia Backström, A. K. Burns, Michael DeLucia, Aleksandra Domanovic, Essex Olivares, Brendan Fernandes, Samara Golden, Ryan Johnson, Joanna Malinowska, Justin Matherly, Virginia Overton, Rachel Rose, Xaviera Simmons.

Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid - SculptureCenter
Through April 02, 2018 - Long Island City

New York City-based artist Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez' solo exhibition at SculptureCenter features a newly commissioned video work titled The Maid, 2018, as well as additional newly produced video and photographic work. The Maid follows a selection of American artist Sherrie Levine's Newborn sculptures throughout the course of a day in various residences, private and institutional, from New York to Los Angeles. Levine made the works in crystal and black cast glass in the early 1990s, molding them after Constantin Brancusi's marble and bronze sculptures of the same name from 1915 and 1920. By featuring not only Levine's sculptures, already appropriations of another artist's work, but also capturing their contemporary environments, Rodriguez engages the conditions and settings in which art circulates, proposing that the futures of artworks are inherently speculative. Taking its title from a 1913 short story by Robert Walser about a devoted maid searching for a lost child who has been put under her care, the film similarly follows its subject toward a resolution that is more cyclical than gratifying. After searching around the world for the child for over twenty years, the maid in Walser's story finally finds her in Paris—and immediately dies from joy. The enigmatic story becomes a parable that frames the exhibition, as it tackles the complexity of care-based relationships forged through time, and follows Rodriguez' ongoing artistic exploration of subjecthood. Another new work, The Girls, 1997-2018, revisits hours of Hi8 video footage captured in a Chinatown park in the 1990s, when Rodriguez moved to the neighborhood as an artist in her twenties. Catching the eye of several young girls playing outside, Rodriguez trains her lens on them for an extended duration. The Girls crystalizes the proto-digital era the artist was working in and casts the children—now young adults—as unwitting protagonists who mark the passage of time. The video further captures a moment in a neighborhood that has since undergone radical transformation by developers and real- estate markets, as well as a generation that was on the cusp of new technologies that would make the visual documentation of everyday life an integral aspect of living. In addition, Rodriguez has produced a series of silver gelatin prints, All the Best Memories are Hers, 2018, which serve as "portraits" of embryos taken with an EmbryoScope. The resulting images are created from a hybrid of digital and analogue techniques. Whether used for assisted reproduction or stem-cell research, the embryo holds a legally fraught status between "person" and "property"as its regenerative potential is increasingly advanced by biotech industries. Together, the works speak to notions of time: suspended, potential, and actualized. By placing technologically mediated biological time alongside the proposed eternal life of the art object, Rodriguez finds momentary intersections in the disparate qualities and conditions of human and non-human "life," renewing meaning in both. Engaging the discourse of sculpture through the tools of cinema, The Maid follows the lives of 'related' artworks and recounts the conditional relationships between artist, artwork, and third-party agents (institution, caregiver, surrogate) in familial terms. Through this work, Rodriguez investigates how techniques of modern reproduction—both artistic and biological—are organized around property and kinship structures that are mediated through technology and the law. Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid is the artist's first solo museum exhibition in New York City. The exhibition is curated by Ruba Katrib and is accompanied by a color publication with essays by Katrib and Leah Pires. The exhibition will travel to MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge in spring 2018. Carissa Rodriguez (born 1970 in New York City; lives and works in New York City) has exhibited in New York and internationally since the mid-1990s. Recent solo exhibitions include the CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco (2016); Front Desk Apparatus, New York (2013); and Karma International, Zurich (2012). Recent major group exhibitions include MEDUSA, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2017); Finesse, Wallach Art Gallery, New York (2016); the Whitney Biennial, New York (2014); Theater Objects, LUMA Westbau, Zurich (2014); Pro-Choice, Fri Art, Fribourg, Switzerland (2013); ProBio, MoMA PS1, New York (2013); White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, ICA Philadelphia (2013); and Demanding Supplies, Kunstraum Lüneburg (2011). Early in her career, Rodriguez exhibited at American Fine Arts, Co., New York (1999 and 1996), and between 1999 and 2004, her project The Stand in collaboration with Jodi Busby traveled to several institutions internationally. Rodriguez received a BA from Eugene Lang College at the New School, New York in 1994, and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program in 2001. She was a core member of Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York from 2004 to 2015. In 2013 Rodriguez was included in Better Homes at SculptureCenter, New York, curated by Ruba Katrib.

Lyrical Abstraction and Encounters: Nature and Culture - Agora Gallery
Through April 03, 2018 - NYC

This spring Agora Gallery proudly presents two group shows: Lyrical Abstraction and Encounters: Nature and Culture. Featuring eight artists, Lyrical Abstraction is a renewed inquiry into the spatial questions posed by abstraction. Clea von Döhren and Mao Lizi have an almost mystical intuition of spatial presentation. While von Döhren paints utopian landscapes that veer off into dream, Lizi highlights the spatial structure of the framed canvas, making it’s object-like solidity appear porous by way of large, gestural strokes of paint. Iftah Geva and Attila Mata are both sculptors who physically recreate the spatial dimensions normally relegated to paintings. Howard Harris and Hiroko Saigusa occupy a intermediate realm between realism and and abstraction, alluding to the principles of design while blurring any and all boundaries between decoration and illumination. Finally, Dana Ingesson and Alexandra Verbeek are painters of pure abstraction whose works in watercolors and oils, respectively, create dimensional surfaces and sudden horizons out of the flatness intrinsic to paper or canvas. Encounters: Nature and Culture features six artists whose works highlight the underlying presence of subjectivity in all objective understanding. Elena Gastón Nicolás and MVR both take landscapes as their theme, and yet the brazen colors of the worlds they depict make their pictures hyperreal, suggesting the manner in which the mind reconstructs experience from memory. Daniel Loveridge and Ellen Cuylaerts utilize techniques specific to “photographic realism,” while making sure only to depict structures and beings that reflect back an intense quality of subjectivity. Finally, Franck Sastre and Zie Otto, in their respective media, portray a lyrical awareness: Sastre, in mixed-media works that appear both realistic and dreamlike, and Otto in photographs in that seem to capture the reflexivity of self-awareness within the frame of a portrait, foregrounding the indefinite limit where selfhood ends and the world begins. Lyrical Abstraction and Encounters: Nature and Culture both open March 13th and run through April 3rd, 2018, with an opening reception on Tuesday, March 15th, 2018 6-8 PM. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: March 13 - April 3, 2018 Reception: Thursday March 15, 2018 6-8 PM Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th Street, New York, NY Event URL: https://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_3_13_2018.aspx Featured Artists: Lyrical Abstraction Mao Lizi | Howard Harris | Hiroko Saigusa | Clea von Döhren | Alexandra Verbeek | Dana Ingesson | Iftah Geva | Attila Mata Encounters: Nature and Culture Ellen Cuylaerts | Elena Gastón Nicolás | Daniel Loveridge | Zie Otto | Michael Victor ?

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.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crown America - The Museum of Arts and Design
Through April 08, 2018 - Columbus Circle

The Negro Motorist Green Book, commonly known as The Green Book, was a travel guide that helped black road-trippers avoid the dangers, injustices, and racial violence of segregation during the Jim Crow era in America. It was published by New York postal worker Victor Hugo Green from 1936 to 1967, and listed establishments such as hotels, restaurants, beauty salons, nightclubs, bars, gas stations, and more, where black travelers would be welcome. In an age of sundown towns, segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement, The Green Book became an indispensable tool for safe navigation.

Unpacking the Green Book: Travel and Segregation in Jim Crow America explores the history of The Green Book in an interactive project space through materials such as a library and reading area devoted to the topics of segregation, automobility, travel, and leisure, specifically as they relate to the black American experience in the midcentury; digitized copies of The Green Book; interactive maps that explore travel destinations included in it; and multiple film excerpts from upcoming documentary projects. It will also include two banners by Cauleen Smith, featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, and two sculptures exploring locations in Harlem and D.C. from William D. Williams’s 2012 Dresser Truck Project.

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time - Lesley Heller
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

John Torreano: Dark Matters Without Time Opening Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 6–8PM Artist Talk: Saturday, March 24, 2:30PM Lesley Heller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by John Torreano. Torreano is widely known for his colorful paintings on flat or molded plywood panels which incorporate acrylic gemstones set into painted and routered surfaces. Torreano's practice pulls heavily from the cosmic compositions of stellar imagery; constellations and nebulae serving as both inspiration and confirmation of his paintings. The exhibitions' title, Dark Matters Without Time, takes this reference further, building on the relationship dark matter has as an unseen yet binding force in the universe and the parallel references in Torreano's abstraction of undefined space as being enigmatic yet universal. The paintings are created on a human scale. They envelop the viewer, drawing the gaze in and past the brush marks and routered shapes—which reference proto planets and dense gaseous clouds within nebulae—into the vast expanse of the works. Torreano's brushwork also conjures an impressionist sensibility reminiscent of Cezanne or Monet with its energetic and gestural strokes. Torreano has exhibited his works extensively since the late 1960s including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Lesley Heller Gallery will be showcasing pieces from several bodies of work including new paintings influenced in part by the artists' time spent in Abu Dhabi—where he has been professor at NYU's Abu Dhabi campus for the past 7 years—as well as select pieces from his Gem Stones and Columns Series. Also on view will be a small selection of cast bronze gems. This will be the artist's first commercial solo show in New York in six years.

Kathy Acker: Who Wants to Be Human All the Time - Performance Space New York
Through April 08, 2018 - New York

In 1974, 26-year-old Kathy Acker met the conceptual artist Alan Sondheim, and suggested a collaboration that would allow them to get to the bottom of their sexual attraction by exchanging “as much information about ourselves as possible.” The result is Blue Tape, an hour-long, highly charged and confrontational truth-and-sex tape. It is remarkable for its braveness, as well as the insight it gives into a young Acker, about to find her voice on sexuality, intimacy, family, and power relations–all themes that consistently recur throughout her oeuvre. For this group exhibition, Blue Tape will be shown next to works by contemporary artists in dialog with Acker.

Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age - The Museum of Modern Art
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.

Founded in 1967, the National Chorale is the only professional choral company in the United States to have established and maintained an annual subscription season in the major New York City concert halls - 50 seasons in David Geffen Hall, with additional concerts at Carnegie Hall. 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. In addition to its David Geffen Hall series, the Chorale has toured nationally; presented 19 summer seasons of New York Festival of American Music Theater concerts in Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park and parks throughout the New York area; concert tours of New York State and New York City; vocal-instrumental chamber music series, and Concerts for Young People. The National Chorale is a leader in the development of choral singing in the New York City area. The New York Times calls the National Chorale "one of the most firmly established professional choral groups in the country." For 50 years, the Chorale has also presented vocal music education programs for NYC public schools, developing singing participation and future audiences for choral and vocal music. 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 Chorale regularly tours New York area schools, presenting concerts and choral workshops; and will present the popular 25th annual New York City High School Choral Festival, the 8th annual Elementary School Choral Festival and 5th annual Middle School Choral Festival in April and May 2018, with 36 participating high school, elementary and middle school choirs and more than 2,700 student singers from all five Boroughs of the City. The Chorale also has a major Partnership with the NYC Professional Performing Arts High School in Manhattan, now in its 8th year, where a team of Chorale artist/teachers lead and develop the PPAS Vocal/Choral Program daily throughout the school year. The PPAS Choir will perform at Lincoln Center at each National Chorale performance during the 2017-2018 Season. Everett McCorvey is in his fourth season as the Artistic Director of the National Chorale. Vocal Excellence is a hallmark of Dr. McCorvey's work with professional choirs and with professional singers in concerts, masterclasses and workshops throughout the world. Over a span of over 35 years, Dr. McCorvey has engaged choirs and audiences on 4 continents in moving and dynamic experiences with his unique and committed interpretation of choral music of all genres. Dr. McCorvey is also the founder and Music Director of the American Spiritual Ensemble, a group of 24 professional singers performing spirituals and other compositions of African-American composers. He is a frequent advisory panelist and on-site reviewer for the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, D.C. and he has served on the Boards of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, National Opera Association and the Kentucky Arts Council. Dr. McCorvey has recently been invited to serve as a jurist on the Opera For All Voices initiative established by San Francisco Opera and Santa Fe Opera. The panel will review new operatic works for the industry with the goal of bringing new audiences to opera. On working with the National Chorale, Dr. McCorvey said "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of great choral singing with the National Chorale is indeed an honor and a privilege. It is my fervent hope that we can continue to sing, share and experience the goodness of humanity through music and learn of each other better through sharing in the arts."

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.

Geometric Figurative Works: Art Exhibit - New York Hall of Science
Through April 14, 2018 - Corona

Karl Szilagi creates visual puzzles that use black and white geometric patterns to create figurative images. His art explores how we perceive patterns as both flat and three-dimensional at the same time. Most of the pieces are reverse mirror images – they appear the same when rotated 180 degrees.

Saint Clair Cemin: Oedipus - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculpture by Brazilian artist Saint Clair Cemin. This will be Cemin's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Oedipus takes on the renowned and influential Greek tragedy in order to interrogate the commanding force that human action can impose over what we perceive to be 'destiny.' Furthering the artist's investigation into the symbolism of ancient mythology, the exhibition presents a new, twenty-part work alongside three sculptures that act as monuments to the power of language and family. The exhibition is on view at the gallery's 293 Tenth Ave location between March 8 - April 14, 2018. The exhibition's title work, Oedipus, functions as its focal point and represents Cemin's first exploration into the form of narrative sculpture; a traditional folk practice popular in his native Northeastern Brazil. Twenty sculptural tableaux are cast in bronze, each presented on an individual plinth and placed in a spiral formation that curves into the center of the gallery. Tiresias, the blind prophet of Apollo, revered for his clairvoyance, takes the role of narrator and sits at the center of the configuration, posed gesticulating as though in the midst of a passionate retelling of the tragedy.

Alex Katz: Cut Outs - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of "Cut Outs" sculpture editioned by Alex Katz. "Cut Outs" demonstrates the artist's ongoing investigation into the properties of visual perception and the brilliance of surface as represented and rendered in the human figure. Since the 1950s, this dedication to figurative realism—informed by the scale and power of Abstract Expressionism and utilizing the graphic language of advertising that anticipated Pop—has marked Katz as one of the most inventive and technically achieved artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century. The hard exterior lines of the Cut Outs mirror their stern materiality. Realized in stainless or porcelain enamel coated steel, they underscore the artist's dedication to the flat, clean aesthetic for which he is famed. The exhibition brings together four works depicting Katz' wife Ada with one larger, multi-figure work.

Robert Polidori Fra Angelico / Opus Operantis - Paul Kasmin Gallery
Through April 14, 2018 - New York

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the debut presentation of a selection of Robert Polidori's large-scale color photographs of the frescoes of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) contained in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence. The exhibition will be on view from March 8 through 14 April, 2018. In the canon of art history, these works, executed in the birthplace of the Renaissance, give us a full sense of the period's renewed commitment to the life of the spirit. Polidori visited the Convento di San Marco several times over the course of 2010 to capture the solemnity and sheer force of the frescoes and their reflection, through the depiction of the life of Christ, of the universal condition of mankind. The frescoes, painted by Fra Angelico between 1439 and 1444 for purposes of devotion and contemplation, extend beyond literal storytelling. They shift into the metaphysical realm, bringing the viewer into contact with the incidents of the life of Christ in the context of a newborn psychological and subjective interpretation. In this altered manner of worship lies the root of the changes in faith and understanding that were to follow during the span of the reawakening that we know as the Renaissance.

'The Adventures of Peter Rabbit' - Theatre Three
Through April 14, 2018 - Port Jefferson

Three Small Irish Masterpieces - Irish Repertory Theater
Through April 15, 2018 - New York

A simple policeman looks into his heart and turns himself into a wide-eyed folk hero. A hungry trickster makes a hearty meal of a stone and a song. A poignant tale is told of a solitary man washed up by the sea on the faraway coast of Donegal. This is the stuff of which great drama can be wrought. A one-act play can achieve a kind of greatness. If that one-act play is written by John Millington Synge, Lady Gregory, or William Butler Yeats, surely it has a head start in that direction. With their romantic views of the past, and their wondrous sets of laws and techniques, these three plays, lovingly presented, full of politics, wild humor, unique displays of language, and finally, deep tragedy, come as close as can be to masterworks.

Erwin Redl's Whiteout - Madison Square Park
Through April 15, 2018 - Flatiron

Through April 15, 2018 - New York

The New York Studio School presents an exhibition of Diana Cooper's 2D and small 3D works in Gleanings (1997-2018).

Her work has ranged from intimate and playful doodles, to room size installations that conjure up images of machines for obscure purposes. Her unique approach establishes a fascinating tension between free line and technological drafting, the ephemeral and the systematic, the playful and the foreboding.

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.

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.

The Ocean After Nature - exhibition - Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall - The Auditorium
Through April 17, 2018 - New York

The Ocean After Nature considers the ocean as reflecting the ecological, cultural, political, and economic realities of a globalized world. Featuring work by 20 artists and collectives in a variety of media — including photography, video, sculpture, and design — the exhibition explores new ways of representing the seascape as a means to identify and critique land-sea divides, the circulation of people and goods, and the vulnerabilities of ecosystems. In the past 15 years, global technological and economic shifts have triggered new concerns and understandings of the ocean. Invoking personal themes of identity and migration, alongside more universal concerns related to tourism, trade, and the exploitation of natural resources, the internationally established and emerging artists in The Ocean After Nature respond to the intertwined factors that define this new understanding of the ocean. The show proposes that seascapes do not only reflect power but can be instruments of power themselves. Featured artists include Ursula Biemann, CAMP, Yonatan Cohen & Rafi Segal, Mati Diop, Drexciya, Peter Fend, Manuel Gnam, Renée Green, Peter Hutton, Hyung S. Kim, An-My Lê, Manny Montelibano, The Otolith Group, Maria D. Rapicavoli, Carissa Rodriguez, Allan Sekula & Nöel Burch, Supersudaca, and UNITED BROTHERS.

Virva Hinnemo - Anita Rogers Gallery
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Anita Rogers Gallery presents Four Feet, an exhibition of new work by Swedish/Finnish artist Virva Hinnemo. The exhibition will be on view February 21- April 21, 2018 at 15 Greene Street, Ground Floor in SoHo, New York. There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, February 21, 6-8pm. RSVP Required. Please RSVP to [email protected] I'm not saying I am a cave woman but on a subliminal level I get what she painted in her cave. I fill my studio walls with marks: at times awkward and careless looking ones. I submit to an internal drive to move, to be physical and to be alone. I want to leave a trail of light and atmosphere that defies my doubt. Ideas can't do this for me; I need to re-route my energy and tap into something else, somewhere beneath the surface. I'm wide-awake watching my paintings as if they might leap out at me. Virva Hinnemo continues to make eloquent, evocative paintings that link her uniquely physical process to a visual territory all her own. Hinnemo's images are intimate and sublimated translations of things and objects delivered from a reservoir of visual annotations. Her language is spare and unaffected. Only what she genuinely intuits is for us to see. The virtues of paint are abundant but frugal, open-ended yet tough-minded. Hinnemo's attitude is straightforward and not-to-be denied. If Motherwell made enduring images, Hinnemo makes hers persistent and resolute; her lyricism is of another kind. Hinnemo's blunt inscriptions are made exclusively by hand and give the impression of signs or symbols observed directly from life and always on her own terms.

A Tango Dancing Cinderella - Julia De Burgos Latino Cultural Center

The Art of Mike Mignola: Hellboy and Other Curious Objects - Society of Illustrators
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

In this specialized exhibit, Mignola reveals some of his best pieces, providing viewers a look into his dark, spectral perspective. With his easily recognizable style of thin lines, unwieldy shapes, and heavy use of black forms, Mignola has amassed a large following of avid readers of his best-selling graphic novels. In 1982, hoping to find a way to draw monsters for a living, he moved to New York City and began working for Marvel Comics. During the 1990's, after developing his iconic technique, Mignola moved to Dark Horse Comics, where he created his signature Hellboy series, a collection of comic books and graphic novels that chronicles the fate of a half-demon occult detective who may or may not be the Beast of the Apocalypse. In this exhibit, the Society will feature highlights from his fan-favorite Hellboy series, as well as other spin-off titles including work from B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and Witchfinder. The Society is also pleased to feature samples from his award-winning comic books including the Eisner Award winner The Amazing Screw-On Head (Dark Horse Comics) as well as Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire (Bantam Spectra), co-written by best-selling author Christopher Golden. This special exhibit will include an array of comic pages, covers, and rarely seen original paintings by Mignola.

Saturday Instructional Drawing Class - The Society of Illustrators
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Eric Michelson (the instructor) is a working artist in NYC with over 30 years experience teaching in various schools including the Art Students League, National Academy of Design and the 92nd Street Y. His paintings are in many private collections. The class will focus on the practical skills needed to express the human form. We will concentrate on gesture, line, proportion, anatomy and a clear understanding of light and shadow. The aim is to help the student identify the essential elements of the figure and express it. It is important to understand that these skills are the same whether your drawing is a quick study or a fully modeled one. The drawing classes will consist of short and long poses. A few charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser, and an 18x24 newsprint pad are all that is required but people with experience may use whatever they like in the way of drawing materials and paper

Jeff Koons: Easyfun-Ethereal - Gagosian
Through April 21, 2018 - New York

Three of the paintings are on generous loan from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Also on view, will be Woman Reclining (2010–14), a granite sculpture from the Antiquity series. Following the enthusiastic public response to Balloon Flower (Blue), the large mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture installed in Potsdamer Platz in Berlin in 1999, the Deutsche Guggenheim commissioned the first seven of the Easyfun-Ethereal paintings: mural-sized tableaux that combine cut-out photographs of packaged foods, fragments of faces, limbs, and hair, amusement park scenes, and paradisiacal landscapes into images of convulsive beauty.

'Cinderella the Musical' - The Players Theatre
Through April 22, 2018 - Greenwich Village

This beautiful musical by Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell is based on the beloved classic fairy tale. Poor Cinderella, she works all day, has to deal with those awful step-sisters and then sleeps in the cinders. But, don't be too sad because Cinderella is one smart cookie. She'll make it to the Prince's ball and capture his heart.

In addition to the one-hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how it was turned into a musical. Then the kids and their families make their own crowns and magic wands to take home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production. The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.

This March and April, Eric Tucker, who Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal named, "America's best classical stage director," will return to the work of George Bernard Shaw with the notable classic, Pygmalion. "At this moment in time I'm extremely interested in exploring how power is negotiated through sexual politics in a gritty interpretation of Shaw's classic play." - Bedlam's Artistic Director, Eric Tucker Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience, BEDLAM creates works of theatre that reinvigorate traditional forms in a flexible, raw space, collapsing aesthetic distance and bringing its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life. In this new, fresh, active environment storytelling becomes paramount and the result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy.

George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion tells the story of Professor Henry Higgins and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle. Higgins makes a bet that he can take Eliza from the gutters of London and pass her off as a society lady, and soon soon discovers that the task involves more than simply teaching her the right dialect in which to speak. Casting and design team will be announced in the coming months.

The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975 - New York Historical Society
Through April 22, 2018 - New York

The New-York Historical Society presents a groundbreaking exhibition on one of the most controversial events of the 20th century: the Vietnam War. Populating a 3,000-square-foot gallery with interpretive displays, digital media, artwork, artifacts, photographs, and documents, the exhibit provides an enlightening account of the causes, progression, and impact of the war. Spanning the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina from 1945 to 1975, the narrative incorporates perspectives that cover both the home front and the war front. Displays feature such topics as the Cold War, the draft, military campaigns initiated by both sides, the growth of the antiwar movement, the role of the president, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition, explore themes of patriotism, duty, and citizenship through key objects, including a troopship berthing unit, vibrant antiwar posters, artwork by Vietnam vets, a Viet Cong bicycle, the Pentagon Papers, and historical film footage. Long overdue in the realm of public history, the exhibit not only provides a chronological and thematic analysis of the Vietnam War but also inspires a fuller, more diverse conversation about the war. The exhibition is curated by Marci Reaven, vice president of history exhibitions. The exhibition's illustrated companion book may be purchased at the NYHistory Store.

Seed / Pond by Halsey Chait - The Invisible Dog Art Center
Through April 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

The oldest bridges were logs and stepping stones. Balancing across them allowed a traveler to pass from one side to another. SEED / POND is an exhibit that seeks to bridge the divide between internal and external perception by offering large-scale algorithmic ink drawings to ponder as well as the opportunity to physically navigate through a gallery-wide floor drawing installation. The SEED drawings act as portals to labyrinthian journeys generated from either boundary or core, each mark impacting the location of the next, a spiraling pattern of choices made that influence the choices still to come. The drawings lead the eyes to focus on the center while simultaneously expanding outwards to the circumference of growth. Each drawing is a seed of vibrating light, acting as a nucleus of future expansion, representing the light that is transmitted through generations. POND is an invitation to step consciously along a path composed of stepping stones scattered within drawn undulations of interwoven water. The installation emerges from the tradition of walking labyrinths, meditative paths that can inspire focus while the walker navigates through all that is flowing around them, all their relations, all their thoughts. Unlike single path labyrinths, the stepping stones of POND form a maze with multiple routes, where every step seeds the next, where the outward physical act of finding balance can inform one's inward centering.

The Floating World by Emma Sulkowicz - The Invisible Dog Art Center
Through April 22, 2018 - Brooklyn

Ukiyo, or "the floating world," describes the hedonistic culture of kabuki theater, geisha, bath houses, and pleasure quarters in Japan's Edo period. It is homophonous with the Buddhist term for "this world of sorrow and grief." The Floating World is an exploration of the meaning of support. When people experience pain or trauma, their loved ones "hold them together" and "lift them up." The installation consists of a series of glass orbs, suspended and connected in a hybrid style of shibari and ukidama, or Japanese fishing floats. Each orb holds a floating artifact of the artist's relationship with a member of their community. With original musical composition by Sean Harold. Emma Sulkowicz (b. 1992) is an American artist of Japanese-Chinese-Jewish descent who lives and makes art in their hometown, New York City. They earned a BFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2015 and studied studio art in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. They are perhaps best known for their senior thesis at Columbia University — "Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight)" — an endurance performance artwork in which they carried a dorm mattress everywhere on Columbia's campus for as long as they attended the same school as their attacker. Their awards include the National Organization for Women's Woman of Courage Award (2016) and Susan B. Anthony Award (2014), the United States Student Association's National Student Movement Builder of the Year Award (2015), and the Feminist Majority Foundation and Ms. Magazine's Ms. Wonder Award (2015).

Brooklyn Center will announce additional performances in the fall in conjunction with the opening of the new Leonard and Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College.   "We are thrilled to continue our commitment to presenting world-class artists to the diverse communities of  Brooklyn," said Jon Yanofsky, the Director of Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts. "Since our home base of Whitman Theatre will be closed for twelve months for much-needed structural repairs, the upcoming season will be presented in two alternative spaces, allowing us the opportunity to share more intimate arts experiences with our audience." The season opens on October 21, 2017 with the Tierney Sutton Band, presenting their 2017 GRAMMY® Award-nominated project The Sting Variations. Praised by The New York Times as "a pure jazz spirit," Ms. Sutton and her trio give fresh jazz interpretations to the repertoire of rock icon, Sting. Other jazz performances in the Kumble season include NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron (February 24, 2018), stepping away from his trio to present an evening of solo piano, and Brooklyn's own Alicia Olatuja (March 10, 2018), who first received national recognition for her soaring solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at President Obama's second inauguration. Actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty will revive his one-man-show Emergency during Black History Month (February 17-18, 2018), in which he portrays more than 40 characters. Having premiered in 2006 at The Public Theater (where it was titled Emergence-SEE!), this solo tour-de-force explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. The prestigious Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company returns for the fifth annual Lunar New Year Celebration, and Step Afrika! brings their "percussive spectacle" (The New York Times) back to Brooklyn Center. Finally, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated musicians of Los Pleneros de la 21 present a musical celebration of Afro-Puerto Rican holiday traditions with their family-friendly Christmas in El Barrio.

Award-winning actor/writer/poet/community activist Daniel Beaty portrays more than 40 characters in this solo theatrical tour-de-force as he explores our shared humanity and what it means to be free. Through the characters' various testimonies on identity and personal freedom, Emergency weaves an intricately woven, witty, and moving commentary on modern African American life."We can overcome if we change the way we see, see ourselves, see our past, see our possibility."- Daniel Beaty from Emergency   Kenny Barron (solo piano) Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 8pm, $35 Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn Praised by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the top jazz pianists in the world," NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron has an unmatched elegance, melodic sensibility, and rhythmic mastery.

Antonio Lopez - Danziger Gallery
Through April 28, 2018 - New York

Danziger Gallery is pleased to announce our representation of the photographic estate of Antonio Lopez. The foremost fashion illustrator of the 1970s and 80s, Antonio (as he signed his work) was and remains one of the most highly regarded and influential figures in the fashion world. While not initially known as a photographer, Antonio was rarely without his favorite Instamatic camera, and as his career progressed he turned increasingly to photography to create fashion stories, portraits, and elaborate mise-en-scènes. This exhibition – the first to focus exclusively on Antonio's photographs - features a selection of the unique Instamatic prints from the 1970s that were his photographic form. Developed and printed by Kodak, these prints were either mounted by Antonio or stored in the original yellow Kodak envelopes that the film was processed and delivered in. As Antonio never sent the negatives back for re-printing each print is unique. While primarily known for his fashion illustrations, Antonio did not treat his photographs lightly, assembling them in grids and pairs to create dynamic and visceral patterns. While the prints may superficially resemble Andy Warhol's Polaroids because of their size and period, Antonio's Kodak prints are a burst of energy to Warhol's more classical studies. While Warhol's Polaroids were mostly the basis for future painted portraits, Antonio's photographs were an end to themselves. A serial Svengali, as the writer Karin Nelson noted: "Lopez brilliantly transformed the women in his world. Under his tutelage, Jerry Hall, a long tall Texan he met at Paris's Club Sept, evolved into a golden goddess. He put Jessica Lange in gold lamé evening dresses after discovering her in Paris studying mime, and gave aspiring model Tina Lutz her start (and an introduction to future husband Michael Chow); and, by spotlighting Pat Cleveland, a mixed-race model with a theatrical streak, he helped break down the color barrier in high fashion." Other favorite subjects were the young Grace Coddington, Grace Jones, and Paloma Picasso. Antonio Lopez was born in Utuado, Puerto Rico in 1943. His family moved to Spanish Harlem in 1950 where he showed early promise as an artist making drawings for his mother who was a seamstress and dressmaker. In the early 1960s he enrolled on a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York where he met Juan Ramos who became his life long collaborator. He joined The New York Times in 1963 but was soon freelancing for Harper's Bazaar, British Vogue and French Elle. In 1969 he moved to Paris with Ramos where he was commissioned by all the leading fashion magazines. He returned to New York in 1975 creating numerous covers and picture stories for Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine. Antonio died in Los Angeles 1987. He was forty four years old. A documentary "Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion, and Disco" is slated for release in the fall of 2018. Written, produced and directed by James Crump, the film covers his colorful and often outrageous milieu and features Jessica Lange, Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, Grace Coddington, Bob Colacello, Patti D'Arbanville, Karl Lagerfeld, Juan Ramos, Bill Cunningham, Yves Saint Laurent, Donna Jordan, Michael Chow, and Paul Caranicas, among others.

Sculpture in the Woods - Rockland Center for the Arts
Through April 29, 2018 - West Nyack

Rockland Center for the Arts, in partnership with Collaborative Concepts, have sited sculptures by 12 regional artists on RoCA's new nature trails just off the Catherine Konner Sculpture Park. Artists create and exhibit site-specific pieces relating to the environment and man, inspired by the natural habitat of the lower Hudson Valley. Artists will address ideas of light, organics, recycling and sustainability through these sculptures. Some may even explore the passage of time, loss or regeneration. Visitors will be able to see the connection between nature and sculpture and how nature can inform design, illuminating the bond between art and nature. The idea is to have adults and children connect with nature, to relieve the ‘nature deficit disorder’ we have these days. Perfectly placed sculptures, visible through and around the natural habitat brings a fresh enchantment to these trails. A glimpse of an art piece beckons the visitor to meander slowly through the paths and observe the intricacies of each exceptional work displayed within the landscape. The sculpture trail connects to the Palisades Park. This tourist destination will have an emotional connection for visitors with nature, the art and inspire all to spend more time outdoors while paying homage to the creative spirit that lives right here in the Hudson Valley and Rockland. The exhibits will be on view May 21, 2017 – April 30, 2018, free and open to the public from dawn to dusk. Rockland Center for the Arts is located at 27 S. Greenbush Rd., West Nyack, NY. Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri 10-4 pm; Sat and Sun 1-4 pm. For more information visit www.rocklandartcenter.org or call 845-358-0877. RoCA’s programs are made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Now and Forever: The Art of Medieval Time - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through April 29, 2018 - New York

What time is it? The question seems simple, and with a watch on your wrist or a cell phone in your hand, the answer is easy. In the Middle Ages, however, the concept of time could be approached in many different ways, with vastly different tools. Drawing upon the rich holdings of the Morgan's collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, Now and Forever explores how people told time in the Middle Ages and what they thought about it. The manuscripts range in date from the eleventh to the sixteenth centuries and come from all the major countries of Europe. The exhibition begins with the quirks of the medieval calendar, exploring sacred feasts, the mysteries of Golden Numbers, the utility of Dominical Letters, and how the Middle Ages inherited the Roman Calendar of Julius Caesar. Visitors will engage with the complexities of time as defined by liturgical celebrations and their two overlapping systems of temporale (feasts of time) and sanctorale (feasts of saints), systems that still influence the way we tell time today. Now and Forever also explores how time beyond the grave preoccupied medieval people for whom life on earth was a mere dress rehearsal for the main event—the afterlife.

Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom - NYU
Through May 04, 2018 - New York

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom brings together over a dozen contemporary artists working across a range of media to interpret an extraordinary—and now lost—historical artifact: a so-called "Book of Paintings" created by José Antonio Aponte, a nineteenth-century Afro-Cuban revolutionary. Authorities found the "Book of Paintings" in 1812 during the investigation into a major antislavery conspiracy. During his trial, Aponte was forced to describe every picture in his book. They portrayed lush landscapes and Biblical stories; Roman goddesses and Spanish kings; black men as warriors, emperors, and librarians; Rome and Ethiopia; Havana and the heavens. Shortly after testifying, Aponte was publicly executed, and his "Book of Paintings" disappeared. Using Aponte's trial testimony—which is all that is known to remain of the "Book of Paintings"—the artists of Visionary Aponte have reimagined Aponte's book for our present. They invite us to think about the role of art in making social change and in mitigating the violence of colonialism and its archive. The artists include: José Bedia (Miami), Leonardo Benzant (New York), Juan Roberto Diago (Havana), Édouard Duval-Carrié (Miami), Alexis Esquivel (Havana), Teresita Fernández (New York), Nina Angela Mercer (New York), Clara Morera (North Carolina), Glexis Novoa (Miami), Marielle Plaisir (Miami), Asser Saint-Val (Miami), Jean-Marcel Saint-Jacques (New Orleans), Renée Stout (Washington, D.C.). The exhibition also incorporates—and the art engages—scholarly research on Aponte and his world by NYU Professor Ada Ferrer, author of the prize-winning book Freedom's Mirror: Cuba and Haiti in the Age of Revolution, and art historian Linda Rodríguez, curator of the digital humanities website Digital Aponte. The show, which originally opened in Miami's Little Haiti Cultural Center during Art Basel 2017, will be on view starting February 23, 2018 at New York University's King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center.

exonemo: The Life-Cycle of Interfaces - New Media Art Space
Through May 04, 2018 - New York

For The Life-Cycle of Interfaces exhibition, the artists will exhibit a suite of four works: Documentation about selected works: Since 2012, Exonemo has been organizing Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet black market), a “backstreet of the internet.” Artists and creators are invited to occupy a flea-market styled exhibition space, and sell items that are interesting and unique to the internet. Originated in Tokyo, Internet Yami-Ichi has since spread out to New York, Berlin, Linz, Brusells, Amsterdam, totaling 17 countries and continuing to grow. “Once upon a time, the Internet was supposed to be a place for liberty.” Today, our relationship with the internet has become so intimate that we are bringing it to work, dinner, and into bed. Yet, many aspects of the internet also became more restrictive and foreign to us. The Internet Yami-Ichi invites netizens to step off-line, “browse face-to-face,” and reminisce about the wondrous naivete embodied by the early internet era. The documentation also recorded other works created by the artists, which wonder freely between spaces that are seemingly disconnected from one another. DesktopBAM (2010) is a performance piece entailing programmatically controlling a mouse cursor to DJ on a desktop environment. It’s a homage to turntablism, born from using turntables in unconventional ways. The title BAM pays tribute to Afrika Bambaataa, a musician hailing from south Bronx, New York, one of the originators of breakbeat DJing and hip hop culture. The dynamism of this performance is created by the mouse cursor, controlled by computer algorithm, to move faster and more accurately than any human DJ can possibly comprehend. The computational movements trigger the audience’s physicality, while at the same time evoke the “physicality of computers” controlled by humans in return. DanmatsuMouse (2007) humors with the idea of an electronic interface as an object of spirituality. The video records the process of destroying a physical mouse, while simultaneously capturing the motion of the trembling cursor desperately crawling across the digital screen, beckoning for a last bitwise appearance. The expressive movement of the cursor invites us to reconsider our relationship with a tool, an electronic device, or a technological object. Do tools exist for the purpose of helping its owner? Or do they leave behind traces of their own being? Could a tool serve as an interface crossing the immediate to the grandeur - an alternative space that’s ever expanding but never approaching? Fireplace (2014) is a video piece presenting scenes of burning optical mice and keyboards as tinder fed into a fireplace. In the old days of “hearth and home,” the fireplace was the center of the living room and family gathering. With the evolution of technology, fireplace was replaced by TV. In some countries, there are TV channels one can tune in to conveniently display video broadcasts of fireplaces. Entering into the era of hand-held devices, where everyone carries “smart” personal technology with them, PCs are joining the same fate as the fireplace, and other technological objects that are no longer desired. So, how about feeding retired PCs to fireplaces? To burn away yet another legacy as we shift to a new world of decentralized personal displays?

Edmund Clark: The Day the Music Died - ICP Museum
Through May 06, 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.

Divine Feminine: New Masterpieces from Nepal - Tibet House US
Through May 11, 2018 - New York

This exhibition presents new work from the Dharmapala Thangka Center in Nepal. It celebrates the significant and specific roles of female icons in the liberation and enlightenment of sentient beings. In Tibetan Buddhism, a female Buddha is considered to be the mother of all Buddhas and sentient beings. In Tantrism, female buddhas are important aspects of the enlightenment practice known as Atti yoga (maha yoga). In Tibetan art, these female icons and figures are depicted as buddhas, bodhisattvas, historical figures such as lineage founders, and also yidams and dharma protectors in peaceful, semi-wrathful or wrathful forms. This is the second showing of works from the Dharmapala Center at the Tibet House US Gallery. Master artist Karsang Lama from the Dharmapala Center is a national treasure in Nepal and a world renowned painter of traditional tangkas. His work appears in monasteries and museums in Asia, Europe and the United States. The Dharmapala Thangka Center promotes the Himalayan Buddhist art and tradition, and is affiliated with a monastic tradition of the northern Buddhist artisans of Tibet and Nepal. The Center has trained hundreds of Tangka artists over three decades.
