JOHNNY WINTER - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
January 22, 2013 - New York

Johnny Winter is a guitar hero without equal. Signing to Columbia records in 1969 in what has been called the largest solo artist deal of its time, he immediately laid the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues. Constantly shifting between simple country blues (in the vein of Robert Johnson) to all-out electric slide guitar blues-rock, Winter has always been one of the most respected singers and guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues-rock and American Southern rock. Throughout the '70s and '80s, he was the unofficial torchbearer for the blues, championing and aiding the careers of his idols like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. Opening act: Debbie Davies Band.

Sean Gaskell plays the West African Kora (Harp) - Cafe Sole
January 24, 2013 - Jersey City

Sean Gaskell plays traditional music of the Mandinka people on the 21 string West African Kora. The music is traditionally played by Griots (Gree-ohs, oral/musical historians). The Kora is a very melodic and peaceful instrument, which can often feel contrary to a repertoire which tells ancient stories of war and hardship,while praising people of high political status and those who helped expand the Mande empire. While the Kora is only 300 years old, some of the songs date back as many as 800 years to the founding of the Mande empire, which took place in Mali in the mid 13th century. Sean Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Brikama, Gambia. He has also studied under Kane Mathis, a Kora player formerly based in Seattle who has lead groups such as "The Kora Band" and "The Sahel Band". Sean released his first solo album "Kora Music of West Africa" in March of 2012. He has performed at the Kartong Festival in Gambia, the Dombondir Festival in Senegal, the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle and at the Naked Arts- a weekly series featuring raw, traditional music in Charlotte, NC. "Sean's playing and singing are right on when it comes to traditional Mandinka music. Very nice indeed!" says Roderic Knight- a retired professor of Ethnomusicology at Oberlin College Musical Conservatory- Ohio

LINA KOUTRAKOS & THE LOW COUNTRY - 54 Below
January 26, 2013 - New York

Singer/songwriter Lina Koutrakos is a diva for the ages. The New York Times says, "her emotional strength is embedded in singing that has a defiant rock edge," while Billboard Magazine states "This woman is the real thing." Her southern influenced music (rooted in her nomadic upbringing) is delivered with a sophisticated urban accent. Together with her one in a million (part sensual and part sizzle) voice, Koutrakos and her band, The Low Country, can whisper in your ear and peel paint off the walls at the very same time. It's the perfect mixture of swank Manhattan and Southern-fried rock & roll!

Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor - La MaMa E.T.C.
Through January 27, 2013 - NYC

With humor and vision, "Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor" (http://kaneandhabil.com) explores the original family sins that are still impacting our civilization. The title characters are the children of Adam and Eve. The play is a comedy, written and directed by Serge Ernandez. The production features an adept cast headed by Obie-winner Sheila Dabney as Eve, who also directs the play's chorus. Ernandez is a veteran of The Living Theatre; Dabney is a senior member of La MaMa's Great Jones Rep. La MaMa E.T.C. will present the play's premiere run January 18 to 27 in its second-floor Club. Like other theatrical works drawn from the creation story (notably the first act of "The Apple Tree," based on Mark Twain's "The Diaries of Adam and Eve"), this piece takes a lighthearted approach. There are wit and innocence, likeable characters, and an overall optimistic philosophy. The play contrasts the legacy of Kane--hatred, judgment and separation--with the legacy of Habil -- compassion, forgiveness and one-ness. The latter is submitted as the path to free humanity from its guilt and aggression, enabling it instead to love. Playwright Serge Ernandez explains, "It is a comedy where we laugh often and easily, as we must laugh at ourselves from time to time and self-reflect so we can evolve."

THE PIETASTERS & BIG D and the KIDS TABLE - Highllne Ballroom
Through March 29, 2013 - New York

Traveling the miles along a star-kissed path, the first break came early for D.C.'s ska darlings, when they landed a 1992 tour opening for ska originals, Bad Manners. In 1997, Rancid's Tim Armstrong signed them to Hellcat/Epitaph where they recorded two albums with producer Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion): the genre-defining Willis (SPIN Magazine called it "An equal opportunity dancehall crasher — part '60s keg rock, part 2Tone and part Motown") and Awesome Mix Tape #6 (CMJ noted it for "lacing a Stax shout-out feel with Caribbean rhythms").
