JOHNNY WINTER - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
January 08, 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.

AMBER MARTIN - 54 Below
January 10, 2013 - New York

One of Time Out New York's "ten New York City women every gay man should know and be obsessed with," celebrated vocalist and comedic performance artist Amber Martin brings her award-winning chops to 54 Below for two jaw-dropping performances. Her new show, Hi!, is an arousing, if not mind-altering hour of meticulously chosen musical and comedic vignettes from Amber's strange and fascinating toy box of characters.

See why Martin's performances have left such celebrity audience members as Joan Rivers (Ms. Rivers personally invited Amber to open her solo show run), William Hurt, Sandra Bernhard, Joyce Dewitt, Cindy Sherman, Michael Stipe, Gus Van Sant, Chuck Palanhuik, Michael Cunningham and Todd Haynes howling with delirium.

Summer Preview Showcase ft. Shuggie Otis, People Get Ready, Ofei, Joshua Nelson, & DJ Kool Herc - Highline Ballroom
January 10, 2013 - Manhattan

Shuggie Otis, for those not familiar with him through David Byrne's heroic disinterment of his 1974 album, Inspiration Information or through his authorship of the wonderful Strawberry Letter 23 - is the son of legendary R `n' B bandleader Johnny Otis. Steven Reker, an Arizona native who moved to New York in the early aughts, formed People Get Ready in the summer of 2009 with co-conspirator Luke Fasano. The elusive artist Ofei released his debut track 'London' via his own site to industry fanfare. You may have never heard of "kosher gospel" music before, but the inspirational performances of Joshua Nelson, the creator of this style, will surely call out to your soul. Considered by many to be the "first hip-hop D.J". In the early stages of hip hop music, DJ Kool Herc brought his sound system to block parties in the Bronx and began playing the brief rhythmic sections of records which would become known as "breaks.

DARLENE LOVE - 54 Below
January 11, 2013 - New York

Darlene Love's thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock-n-roll as Eric Clapton's guitar or Bob Dylan's lyrics. From her first number one recording, He's a Rebel, through her string of label hits with legendary producer Phil Spector (including Da Doo Ron Ron, He's Sure the Boy I'm Gonna Marry and Christmas Baby, Please Come Home), to the countless songs for which she sang backup (for artists like Sam Cooke, Elvis Presley, Dionne Warwick, Cher and Aretha Franklin), Darlene Love has blazed a trail of success in the music industry that has recently led to her induction into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame. And all of this is to say nothing of her acclaimed Broadway performances in Leader of the Pack, Carrie, Grease and Hairspray.

January 11, 2013 - Manhattan

After 20 years in an industry that has called Meshell Ndegeocello everything from avant garde to a dying breed, what unquestionably remains is the fearsome bassist, prolific songwriter, and the creativity and curiosity of an authentic musical force. With that, she has earned critical acclaim, the unfailing respect of fellow players, songwriters and composers, and the dedication of her diverse, unclassifiable fans. Pianist Cecil Taylor is one of the most advanced improvisers in jazz. Ahmir Khalib Thompson, known professionally as Questlove, is an American drummer, DJ, music journalist, and record producer. Ayo, the multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter, and producer, has achieved massive success, selling over 1.5 million albums in France and across Europe. Updating the rural blues tradition for the modern era, Guy Davis was among the most prominent ambassadors of African-American art and culture of his generation, additionally winning great acclaim for his work in the theater. Gr�goire Maret from Geneva, Switzerland, developed his own unique harmonica sound and his versatile style enables him to play effortlessly across different musical genres. In 2005, Gr�goire toured with the Pat Metheny Group, receiving a Grammy for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.

Second Annual Maqam Fest - Alwan for the Arts
January 11, 2013 - New York

Maqam Fest is Alwan’s biggest annual music event, showcasing six of the most exciting ensembles in New York and around the US, each bringing its own unique approach and variation on maqam music. Developed more than a millennium ago, maqam is a complex system of musical modes and represents one of the great legacies of the Arab-Islamic world. Maqam pervades the musical cultures from the Maghreb (Northwest Africa) to Western China, from the Balkans to the Sudan. Maqam Fest 2013 celebrates a line-up that pays tribute to this long-honored tradition and alluring geographic spectrum, featuring ancient traditions, explorations of historic ties between musical styles, and contemporary compositions and improvisations.

This year's Maqam Fest line-up includes:

SALAAM: Original compositions in Arab and Middle Eastern style EVA SALINA: Re-imagined songs of Balkan Romani legends of the 60s, 70s, and 80s NEW ANDALUCIA: Flamenco and Arab intersections Amino Belyamani’s SSAHHA: Compositions and improvisations over Moroccan grooves with a re-tuned piano ALWAN ARAB MUSIC ENSEMBLE: Traditional music of Cairo, Aleppo, and Baghdad AHMED ERDOGDULAR: Sufi and Ottoman Classical music from Turkey

Maqam Fest articulates the tradition of the maqam within a thriving forum that interlinks, interconnects, constructs and deconstructs on a musical plane that rises above convention and the ordinary. The age-old concept of maqam and its transcendence of national and geographic borders align with Alwan’s vision towards diversifying the cultural experience in New York and providing a space where art, music and performance can be negotiated creatively, while informing and being informed by other traditions.

This showcase is part of the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) Conference. One of the most anticipated events of the performing arts field, this convention brings thousands of presenters, agents, managers, artists from around the country and the world in the fields of dance, theater, and music to New York City each January.

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").
