Apocalyptica - New York City Theatre
September 11, 2017 - New York

It's been 20 years since Apocalyptica first put forth their unholy alliance of metal and classical music in the form of debut album Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. The Finnish cello metal band formed with the intention of playing Metallica and other heavy metal band covers, but each subsequent release featured more and more original music until fourth album Reflections announced their fully-fledged status as original artists. While it may seem that these two genres make strange bedfellows, Apocalyptica more than makes it work. Known for their unique and thrilling live shows, in which they headbang while playing the cello no less, the band pulls no punches and brings as much energy to the stage as any metal band in its prime. This, coupled with a heightened sense of musicianship, makes for an experience you won't want to miss.

Feline Gloomy - littlefieldnyc

This is it. Upon watching a screening of the film Cat People (theme song and music by David Bowie & Giorgio Mooder), faster than you can say toxoplasma gondii, it came to me: CATS! The time has never been more ripe for a cat-themed dance party. It could be the fact that I am the proud parent of three lovely felines. Or it could just be my unabashed devotion to the Cure's "Lovecats." But I think we'd all enjoy prancing around for a few hours to the world's slinkiest cat-themed dance songs, doing our best alley cat impressions. Here's what we've got planned:
