GARY U.S. BONDS - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 09, 2012 - New York

As America's baby boomers moved into their mid-teens, a young musician named Gary Anderson began his professional career. To draw attention to his first cut, "New Orleans," he sent promotional copies of the track to radio stations in sleeves inscribed with the phrase "Buy U.S. Bonds." The trick worked, and at age 19, Gary Anderson became Gary U.S. Bonds. His follow-up was the now-legendary party track "Quarter to Three," a No. 1 hit with a spirit and energy that would eventually inspire and influence a generation. Over the next three years, Bonds co-wrote and recorded hit after good-time hit: "School is Out," "School is In," "Dear Lady Twist," "Twist, Twist Senora," "Seven Day Weekend," and others. He performed throughout the world, rising to a status so high that on a 1963 tour of Europe, he headlined above a group of relative newcomers - The Beatles

Kinky Friedman The Bi-Polar Tour - Highline Ballroom
June 09, 2012 -

Everyone's favorite former Texas gubernatorial candidate, political commentator, and self-proclaimed "author, columnist, musician, and beautician" Kinky Friedman is going bi-polar, as in Kinky Friedman's Bi-Polar Tour, which starts in New England on June 6 and continues through to July 1. As he has done on his recent "sojourns through America," Friedman will be performing solo, dispensing the wisdom of the Jewish troubadour, and signing books. The Kinkster, whose solo performance has recently been described as "Mark Twain meets Groucho Marx ... at the corner of Johnny Cash and Lenny Bruce," will be hitting the road fresh on the heels of the release of his brand new book, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, co-authored by and about the life and times of Billy Bob Thornton.

Ceu - Highline Ballroom
June 10, 2012 -

Since emerging from Sao Paulo, Brazil, onto the global music stage just five years ago, Brazilian phenomenon Ceu has captivated the world with her beautifully simple melodies, sophisticated arrangements, and disarmingly honest songwriting. Crooning with a warmth and sensuality far more interesting and complex than the warbling of the sex-kittens-of-the-month that perennially inhabit the American R&B charts, this young vocalist sings as if she were imparting secrets. Her songs sound like they're informed by life as it is really lived, in all of its emotional difficulties and complications, rather than by gauzy romantic illusion or sexpot posturing.

The New York Pops with Ozomatli - SummerStage
June 12, 2012 -

The New York Pops is the largest independent pops orchestra in the United States, and the only professional symphonic orchestra in New York City specializing in popular music. Led by Music Director Steven Reineke, the orchestra performs an annual subscription series and birthday gala at Carnegie Hall. The New York Pops was founded by Skitch Henderson in 1983 with a mission to create greater public awareness and appreciation of America's rich musical heritage. The New York Pops' extensive education programs allow thousands of public schoolchildren to participate in concert and musicmaking experiences throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Ozomatli celebrates the multitude of cultures in Los Angeles with their music - a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip-hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, East LA R&B, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga. For 15 years, they have entertained audiences around the world with their unique sound of horns, percussions, strings and vocals while promoting a positive message of peace. According to the LA Times, "Ozomatli's deep community connections and polyglot mix give the band a musical and cultural cachet." The seven multi-racial members of Ozomatli are committed to addressing social issues of local, national, and international importance through fun, yet inspirational entertainment.

UP FRONT AND PERSONAL with J HOLIDAY & ERIC ROBERSON - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 12, 2012 - New York

J Holiday -

Holiday is an intriguingly paradoxical figure, equal parts soldier, student, scion, and sage. Fortunately for listeners, this artist has chosen R&B as his preferred pulpit and the airwaves as his congregation. "I'm very conscious and music is the number-one source of expression and emotion," he explains. That perspective, arriving with the fury of a burning bush, is sure to inspire converts. Rejoice in the Holiday season.

ERIC ROBERSON -

Inspiring, humble, eclectic, and daring ... a leader, an entrepreneur, an innovator, and an outstanding storyteller. These are just a few of the words that describe acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer Eric Roberson. For the past 15 years Roberson, also known as "Erro," has remained a prevalent force in today's music. Elements ranging from soul, R&B, house, hip-hop, and more can be detected throughout his original and contemporary sound.

Amateur Night at the Apollo - Apollo Theater
June 13, 2012 - Harlem

The new Amateur Night season is underway with a whole new line-up of eager contestants who compete for the winning title of Super Top Dog and a cash prize of $10,000!

Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. Then get ready to cheer or jeer as you decide who stays and who gets booted off stage. At Amateur Night, you tell the performers to be good or be gone!

Amateur Night at the Apollo is hosted by the comedian Capone. Each show begins with a festive pre-party featuring video and music by DJ Jess. And keep a lookout for master impressionist C.P. Lacey, the resident Executioner who sweeps bad talent off the stage.

BOOTSY COLLINS - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 13, 2012 - New York

Bootsy Collins is the man who put bass in your face - the original funk 'n' roll wild child, the Godzilla-toned high minister of the all-powerful "one," a sly dog who - with his trademark psychedelic stovepipe, knee-high platform boots, and star-studded bass guitars - makes the Cat in the Hat look tame. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix and tutored by no less an authority on the big beat than James Brown, Collins has stomped his way through the last 40 years of music history and lived the high life. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the other members of Parliament-Funkadelic. And yet, after spraying outer space bass all over classic recordings by the Godfather of Soul, P-Funk, and his own trailblazing groups - including Bootsy's Rubber Band, the Sweat Band, and Praxis - Collins has arrived at a kind of Zen-like balance that he credits for inspiring his latest album, Tha Funk Capitol of the World (2011).

Michael Kiwanuka - Highline Ballroom
June 13, 2012 -

With Michael Kiwanuka, it's all about the voice. A voice that he describes as "hitting straight through to the core" with direct, emotional songs about love, yearning, comfort, and belonging. It's a voice that, in the beginning, built him a following via Myspace and small London gigs, and led Paul Butler from The Bees to invite him to the band's studio to lay down introductory tracks for his first recording. Growing up in North London as the son of Ugandan parents, Kiwanuka struggled at times to see where he fit in. Like most of his schoolmates, he liked bands like Nirvana, Radiohead, Offspring, and Blur, but it was only when he discovered that Jimi Hendrix was black that he understood he had a place playing rock guitar. Encounters with the music of Bob Dylan and Otis Redding further laid the foundations for Kiwanuke's own rootsy, folk-inflected brand of modern soul.

The Wanted - Beacon Theatre
June 14, 2012 - New York

The Wanted will hit the stage at Beacon Theatre on June 14 at 8PM.

LITTLE RICHARD - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 14, 2012 - New York

Little Richard - the originator, the emancipator, the architect of rock 'n' roll. Exploding into the American consciousness in the mid-'50s, he singlehandedly laid the foundation and established the rules for this brand new musical form. His song "Tutti Frutti" was his catalyst for success and led to an uninterrupted run of smash hits: "Tutti Frutti," "Long Tall Sally," "Rip It Up," "Lucille," "Jenny Jenny," "Keep A Knockin'," "Good Golly Miss Molly," and "Ooh! My Soul." By 1968, Little Richard had sold over 32 million records internationally.

Joey Arias - SummerStage
June 15, 2012 -

Equal parts singer, comedian, drag queen, performance artist and MC, Joey Arias has a career that defies classification but fuses together effortlessly to create a unique performance experience complete with extravagant costumes and wigs. A fixture of downtown New York City nightlife since his start as a backup singer for David Bowie through his 2011 hit show Arias With a Twist, this entertainer has been awing audiences with his distinctive brand of humor and wit, leading the New York Times to declare, "From one moment to the next, [Joey Arias] is as sweet and naive as a storybook shepherdess, as dirty-mouthed and -minded as a sailor on shore leave, as scatterbrained as Lucy Ricardo, as serene as a Tibetan monk or as no-nonsense as an old Broadway trouper."

Scaryoke with Shequida - Times Scare
June 15, 2012 - New York

But just wait until sultry Mistress of the Night, Shequida, gets on stage to host Scaryoke live in the crypt every Friday night. Frightfully delicious sing-along fun where you can win special Scaryoke prizes! Sign up at 9pm, show begins at 10pm.

Lisa Hannigan & Joe Henry - Highline Ballroom
Through June 15, 2012 -

Lisa Hannigan - Since writing her first album, 2008's Sea Sew, Lisa Hannigan has seen her life change in oh so many ways. She penned her first songs in hope rather than the expectation that the wider world might find a use for them; knocked out at rehearsals in a freezing barn in the Irish countryside; and produced her debut at a friend's studio within a fortnight. Yet the self-released Sea Sew went Double Platinum, was nominated for the Choice Music Prize in her native Ireland and the Mercury Prize in the UK, and saw Hannigan play bewitching guest spots on the likes of Later with Jools Holland, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Colbert Report. Joe Henry - Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and producer Joe Hendry resists easy classification. Originally winning acclaim for his country-influenced efforts Short Man's Room (1992) and Kindness of the World (1993), he has since gone on to release albums that draw from a broad palate of influences, including rock, blues, jazz, and numerous forms of alternative music. His production and songwriting resume is formidable as well, including work with icons like Bonnie Raitt, Meshell Ndegeocello, Aaron Neville, Mose Allison, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Susan Tedeschi, Ani DiFranco, and Solomon Burke. He also produced Lisa Hannigan's latest album Passenger, which dropped last year.

PAULETTE DOZIER’s “In Walked You” Pre-CD Release Concert - Metropolitan Room
June 15, 2012 - New York

“While the term “Renaissance Woman” might often be used to hype artists beyond their true array of talents and accomplishments, it’s appropriate (and maybe even an understatement) when trying to capture the essence of the remarkable Paulette Dozier,” says Jonathan Widran of JazzMonthly.com.

In anticipation of the fall release of her new CD titled, “PAULETTE DOZIER – In Walked You,” this multi-faceted singer/actress will take the stage on June 15, 2012 at 9:30 pm at the Metropolitan Room for a pre-CD Release concert. The evening’s repertoire will feature songs from this new project as well as a selection of great Jazz standards and edgy contemporary sounds from her earlier releases, With You (2005) and Over & Over Again (2007).

Paulette’s 2012 album features a sundry mix of tunes. Everything from a hard rocking “Proud Mary” to a soothing “Summer Breeze” and a familiar “Autumn Leaves,” all with fresh arrangements that capture the straight-ahead jazz style that this dynamic lady performs so well. As on her previous CDs, the title tune, “In Walked You,” is an original piece written by Dozier in collaboration with her producer Mike Levine. It is a very personal, heartwarming love song that makes its debut amongst some of the greatest love songs ever recorded. Hits such as “I Love You Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel and “Loving You” by Minnie Riperton are a perfect fit for Paulette’s sultry alto voice that has been described as ‘deep, steady and sexy’. JazzReview.com recognized that, “There is no negative drawback in surrendering to Dozier’s bewitching voice. It does a soul good. … Her music is nostalgic with a contemporary feel, and esthetics, which make surrendering to the mood a place of sheer comfort.” This recognition certainly holds true for this new album as well. If you have never heard this fiery entertainer or seen her in action, then you are definitely in for a treat this summer. Renowned for her energetic stage presence, the illustrious Paulette Dozier infuses every one of her performances with a depth far beyond the usual. Her casually elegant style and easy delivery combined with a wicked sense of humor and an innate knowledge of what her audiences enjoy, combine to make each of her performances unique and memorable. With two Carbonell Award nominations amongst her credits for her theater work, this stylish jazz entertainer has appeared on stage to sold-out audiences alongside Broadway star Melba Moore in Crowns. She has also opened for the likes of jazz super star Roy Ayers to an audience of feverish delight. On June 15th come join Paulette Dozier and her outstanding jazz ensemble at the Metropolitan Room for an exclusive listen to what’s to come in the fall on her new CD, “PAULETTE DOZIER – In Walked You.”

Dawes / Kurt Vile and the Violators - SummerStage
June 16, 2012 -

A self-described "American rock 'n' roll band," Dawes represent everything pure and true about that genre, four talented friends making music together, fueled by a shared belief in the power of their songs. With Nothing Is Wrong, the Los Angeles-based band continues to master their blend of singer/songwriter reflection with folk, country and AOR-inspired arrangements, all ringing guitars, soaring harmonies and heartfelt melodies. After spending the past two years on tour, songs like "Coming Back To A Man" have a restless, unsettled quality evocative of life lived on the road. It's a collection of songs that expertly builds upon the template laid by 2009's extraordinary debut, North Hills, Nothing Is Wrong. Kurt Vile and the Violators have a way of tying time in knots. You can hear it on their newest album, Smoke Ring For My Halo where the pinwheeling guitars and reaching atmospheres of the single, "Baby's Arms" are as strange as they are familiar: a demonstration of how Vile can put worn methods and sounds through himself and end up with something that isn't emotionally or sonically obvious. By marrying the introspection of the nocturnal stoner with the exploration of a troubadour frontiersman, Vile belongs to a long lineage of classic American songwriters, but he's the only one who's alive and in his prime today.

THE COMMODORES - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
June 16, 2012 - New York

For over four decades, The Commodores have remained a force in the music industry. Formed at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama in 1967 as The Mystics, the original group featured Lionel Richie, William King, Thomas McClary, Milan Williams, Ronald LaPread, and Walter "Clyde" Orange. The group signed by Motown in 1972 and got its start as an opening act for the Jackson 5. Although it was two years before they started recording, when they did, The Commodores quickly became Motown's best-selling male group of the '70s, selling over 60 million records and churning out hits like "Machine Gun," "Sail On," "Brick House," "Slippery When Wet," "Just to Be Close to You," "Three Times a Lady," "Still," and more.

The Duke Spirit - Highline Ballroom
June 16, 2012 -

Looking for a band versed in rock 'n' roll mythology, boasting outsider art sensibilities, and fronted by a seductive, deep sea diva? Look no further. Inside the city walls, charlatans pass themselves off as saviors of rock 'n' roll. But listen close, and there's rolling thunder in the hillsides. Post the sentries, man the gates. The Duke Spirit is coming. Formed in 2003 when singer and harmonica player Liela Moss met guitarist, keyboardist, and singer Luke Ford in art school, this British alternative rock outfit has captured the imaginations of indie rock intelligentsia on both sides of the Atlantic.

Through June 24, 2012 - Upper West Side

Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies, an exhibition of more than 20 sets of striking large-format prints, showcases advanced imaging technologies used by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and reveals once-hidden, intricate details of both natural phenomena and cultural artifacts. The exhibition features images that were created in pursuit of scientific knowledge but also resulted in visually arresting art.
