Doors at 10:30pm, Show at 11:00pm. $20 at door. RSVP to info@4kent.com. The Rewind Show is a vision we have had for as long as we have been in the business of night clubs and event planning. We are tired of the same concept that every night-club in NYC has been stuck with over the years and think that it's time to change the way to party! As we all know nothing can compare to a live performance and therefore we have created the Rewind Show! We want to bring an experience like no other by combining the live music of the 80's Rock & Roll era along with the best DJ's spinning the present hits. Every Saturday night, the Highline Ballroom will operate as a high-end night club to let people experience the Rewind Show.

Over the Rhine - Highline Ballroom
March 26, 2011 -

Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 8:00pm $25 adv, $28 at doors "We've seen the landfill rainbow, we've seen the junkyard of love. Baby it's no place for you and me..." Over the Rhine borrowed their name from one of Cincinnati's most colorful and controversial neighborhoods. From its earliest days, the area served as a port-of-entry for immigrants and, over the years, has become a melting pot where people strive to make better lives for themselves. It's here in this storied neighborhood that Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler first began making their music, somehow imbuing it with the tattered but lovely craftsmanship and sense of history that surrounded them. The band first began performing together in 1990 in local Cincinnati clubs and gathering places. Their first show at Sudsy Malone's — on a Monday night — drew about 20 people and most of them friends. But even from these somewhat humble beginnings, audiences immediately believed they had stumbled onto something special. Enveloping their listeners like family, Karin and Linford kept them close to the fold with simple candle-lit stages and playful handwritten newsletters. But above all else, it was the band's songs that drew in more and more eager fans. Karin Bergquist's voice, full of longing and love, seemed to pierce the soul and became the unmistakable focal point of Over the Rhine's richly spiritual music.

The Angela Bofill Experience - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
March 26, 2011 -

As narrated by Angela Bofill, and performed by Maysa, Grammy Winner Dave Valentin, Kim Waters & The original Angela Bofill Band Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=216 **Two Shows** Doors at 6:00PM, Show at 7:30PM Doors at 9:30PM, Show at 10:00PM $40 Adv, $45 Day of Show General Admission Seating First come, first seated Reserved VIP booths on floor avail for 4 & 6 people $60 per ticket - Must buy entire booth. A booth for 4 = $240 A booth for 6 = $360 With the voice of an angel, singer Angela Bofill wowed audiences across the globe. This award winning recording artist (American Music Award nominee, Bammy Award and Blackbook Award recipient, to name a few) is more powerful and exciting as ever with her three and a half octave range. Her stellar sold out performances are only equaled by the love and enthusiasm bestowed upon her by her many fans and colleagues including Denzel Washington, Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin, Lenny Kravitz, Danny Glover, Prince, Santana, the late great Ray Charles and her god-father Tito Puente. Born and raised in New York City by her Cuban father and Puerto Rican mother, this Latin bombshell was exposed to a variety of musical styles, from Motown to Aretha Franklin to Tito Puente and Celia Cruz. Says Angela, Growing up in Harlem, if you didn't have the latest James Brown or a Supremes forty-five single, you weren't hip. We always had Latin music playing in the house as my parents were great music lovers. In fact my father used to sit in and sing with the great Cuban bandleader, Machito. By the age of eighteen, Angie was an accomplished singer and songwriter, jamming with the likes of Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Hancock, Nat Adderley Jr and Dizzy Gillespie to name a few. She was a featured soloist with the Dance Theater of Harlem, majored in theater at the University of Hartford and majored in voice at the Hartt College of Music. Angela also holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music where she was classically trained in opera. Angela's solo recording career began in 1978 with her self-titled album, Angie. The hits This Time I'll Be Sweeter and Under The Moon and Over the Sky began the career of a young woman whose unique blend of jazz and R&B established her as one of the top vocalists in both the pop and jazz world. Signed to GRP records, she released her sophomore recording titled, Angel of the Night. With hits like I Try and the title track, both her albums were simultaneously topping the pop, jazz and R&B charts in 1979 for months. Angela's recording career was solidified.

Ron Sexsmith - Highline Ballroom
March 28, 2011 -

Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 8:00pm $25 Ron Sexsmith is a major contemporary writer/artist who has amassed a sizable and consistently enthralling body of work since making his major label debut in 1995 with his self-titled album on Interscope, followed by such eloquent musical gems as Other Songs (1997), Blue Boy (2001), Retriever (2004) and Time Being (2006). Each has its own particular character but is connected to the rest by the overarching intelligence, impeccable taste and understated emotionality of this single-minded voice in the pop-cultural wilderness. As one new fan put it in a comment on iTunes, Sexsmith's music "wins you over with a silk punch." Well put. On his ninth album, the cagily titled Exit Strategy of the Soul (with an emphasis on the last word of this provocative phrase), Sexsmith once again brings a provocative new wrinkle to his expansive aesthetic. Informed but not entrapped by soul and gospel music, ornamented by a Cuban horn section and his own gorgeously imperfect piano playing, the album achieves a sort of metaphysical dimension while maintaining breathtaking intimacy.

Secrets of the Sages: The Zohar, the laws of nature and the future of man - Symphony Space
March 29, 2011 -

"Secrets of the Sages: The Zohar, the laws of nature and the future of man" is an evening of music and wisdom with the world's foremost Kabbalist, Israel's Dr. Michael Laitman.

Open the inner door to the beauty and significance of the ancient wisdom of Kabbalistic sages. Enjoy a special concert of once concealed, profound and haunting melodies carrying wordless sensations of higher realms of love. Then listen as the world's foremost Kabbalist reveals the wisdom's message meant for this challenging and decisive moment in human history.

The Rav: Dr. Michael Laitman is the founder and president of the Bnei Baruch Kabbalah Education & Research Institute, which is dedicated to teaching and sharing the wisdom of Kabbalah. He is a Professor of Ontology and Theory of Knowledge, and holds a PhD in Philosophy and Kabbalah, and an MS in Bio-Cybernetics. He has written more than 40 books on the wisdom of Kabbalah, which have been translated into 17 languages. He is the world-renowned expert on Kabbalah, and the disciple of one of the most prominent representatives of this ancient wisdom in the 20th century, Rav Baruch Shalom Ashlag, the firstborn son of Rav Yehuda Ashlag, author of the Sulam [Ladder] commentary on The Book of Zohar. Dr. Laitman has worked together with prominent scientists around the world, conducting unique research on modern science and Kabbalah, creating a unique synthesis between these fields of knowledge. This synthesis has made him a sought-after international lecturer who never leaves his audience indifferent. The Band: The band is a group of outstanding musicians from the US and Israel who's collectively resurrecting the melodies of the Universe. The group's instrumentation - an interchangeable mix of drums, violin, piano, saxophone and upright bass ¬- combine to produce music that is at once strange and familiar. Defying categorization in the classical sense the melodies evoke one's deepest desire and yearning for that elusive thing called home. Their music penetrates deep within the soul speaking to the person in a language of feelings and emotions, and as such provides a certain analogy of the impression of spirituality that is felt by the Kabbalist. The event features Haim Cotton, Yuval Edoot, Emmanuel Berkovitch, Dror Ben-Gur, and Eddy Khaimovich. For more info see www.secretsofthesages.com

Civil Twilight - Highline Ballroom
March 30, 2011 -

Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 7:30pm $13 adv, $15 at doors The three lifelong friends—brothers Steven and Andrew McKellar and Richard Wouters—who make up the Wind-up Records recording group Civil Twilight have been playing music together since they were teenagers growing up in South Africa, emulating the rock music they heard coming out of Europe and America, from Oasis, U2 and Nirvana to The Verve, The Police, Muse and Radiohead. Civil Twilight envelopes you in its multi-layered sound and vision. You don't necessarily hear a whole lot of the music of Africa on the band's self-titled debut, but you can hear the continent itself in Steve McKellar's ambitious lyrics, their existential questioning and spiritual longing the perfect correlative to the music's expansive atmospheric soundscapes, at once lush, feverish and exotic like a jungle, with the vast, arid spaciousness of a desert. The band's name itself a reflection on that in-between time, not quite daylight, not quite darkness, but rather a shifting shade of gray. With songwriting influences ranging from Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen to Bruce Springsteen and Thom Yorke, Civil Twilight has been able to translate their outsider status—first in South Africa, and now in America—into a convincing voice for lyrics. From Cape Town, South Africa to Nashville, Tennessee, Civil Twilight's trip has already taken them a long way… and it's only the beginning.

Aaron Neville - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
March 30, 2011 -

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=219 Doors at 6:00PM, Show at 8:00PM $38.50 adv, $50 day of show Reserved VIP booths on floor avail for 4 & 6 people $60 per ticket - Must buy entire booth. A booth for 4 = $240 A booth for 6 = $360 General Admission Seating First come, first seated Ask Aaron Neville when he first knew that his voice was something special, and he has a ready answer. "It was the day I was born" he says with a little grin. "The doctor slapped me, and I said "Ah-aaaah!" What follows is one of those classic, tremulous Aaron Neville falsettos - it may be impossible to capture on the printed page, but you've heard it before. You heard it on his classic 1966 ballad, "Tell It Like It Is," on his acclaimed records with his brothers in New Orleans first family of rock n'funk, The Neville Brothers, on his Grammy-winning hit duets with Linda Ronstadt and Trisha Yearwood; and on his A&M Records solo albums WARM YOUR HEART, THE GRAND TOUR, and AARON NEVILLE'S SOULFUL CHRISTMAS. And now you'll hear it once more on THE TATTOOED HEART, the latest chapter in one of the hardest-fought, most triumphant success stories in popular music. As one of the great distinctive singers of the past four decades, Aaron Neville's contradictions have long been noted: the body of a linebacker and the voice of an angel; the arms that look as if they could snap a microphone in half, coupled with the voice of an angel; the arms that look as if they could snap a microphone stand in half, coupled with a voice of startling purity, grace and even innocence. Aaron calls it "the perfect package," and even he's not immune to the spell his music can cast. "When people tell me that my voice helped them through their rough times, I know what they're talking about," he says quietly. "Because it helped me through my rough times, too."

The Residents - Highline Ballroom
March 31, 2011 -

Doors at 7:00pm, Show at 9:00pm $32.50 adv, $35 at doors Kari, Omar, Sierra, and Dr. Dimples wanted to form a band. Each was surprisingly good at playing a musical instrument except for Dr. Dimples. But he was charming and many considered him successful at imitating the vocals of currently popular music. So Dr. Dimples became their singer. They called themselves "The Fabulous Bleeps" and practiced all the time in hopes that someday they would get a record deal and become big stars. Their greatest achievement before breaking up was opening for Rolling Dufflebag at the state fair. The Residents held no band in higher reverence than the Fab Bleeps. To them, Bleeps was a real life example of everything they did not want to be. Jay, Randy, Bob, Carlos, John, Homer, Chuck, Hardy, and Palmer did not want to form a band. The fact that none of them played musical instruments was one of the reasons. The idea that they should all become singers didn't really fly either. However, they did want to do something that was fantastic. The best job for people with no particular abilities but wish to be fantastic is to be an artist. They realized that they could be the "artist" version of a "band." Some members would become sound artists, some would become visual artist, some would become marketing artists, some would become writers and some would become religious. All together they would become the non-band named …. hmmm… they had no name and to make one up seemed silly. Who would really want to be a "Bleep" or a Rolling Dufflebag?" Certainly not artists. They have no name. Just as your dog is not really named "Spot" even if you call him that. The Residents have no name. Like teeth as you grow old, some people fell out of the group. First to go was Palmer, most recent to depart was Carlos. There were others in between. Such is life. ••• Forty years later, Hardy and Homer still act as the business artists. Randy, Chuck, and Bob are still out there fighting the artistic battle on stage and in other public arenas. The Residents have recorded a lot of albums, produced award-winning films, created two video games, and much much more. Over time, despite serious resistance, The Residents have become a band of sorts. Sometime they think they have become frighteningly similar to The Fabulous Bleeps who they still admire for their failures. But most of the time they know that even with The Residents' striking lack of popularity, they can never equal The Bleeps' staggering band-ness or blandness. Artists rule. Such is life.

Frankie Negron - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
March 31, 2011 -

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=158 at 6:00PM, Show at 8:00PM $15 adv, $17 day of show Standing Room Only Limited table seating available First come, first seated. Reclining on his couch in a beautifully appointed living area at his New Jersey home, Frankie Negron strikes you as a pretty relaxed guy. As he recounts his accomplishments, it would be understandable for Negron to now finally sit back on this sunny afternoon and coast a little: child performer and student at the School of Performing Arts, Broadway showman by age 20 and, most famously, salsa superstar, earning him Grammy Award nominations, Billboard Award nods and two Premio Lo Nuestro Awards for Song of the Year (not to mention several Number One singles, one Gold and four Platinum album awards to his credit). However, Frankie Negron did not get to be one of the most successful salseros of the 20-something generation by chilling out all day. With a sly smile and a twinkle in his eye, it is clear that rest and relaxation are not on Frankie's mind as he speaks of his newest project: his first English language record entitled Independence Day, due out later this summer. The album is a composite of Negrons natural romanticism with rock, pop, and a healthy dash of the sounds of his past. Its a bold, creative move for a young man with a dedicated Latin fan base, known for his romantic ballads and emotionally charged vocal performances. Yet, for Frankie, recording the forthcoming Independence Day with producer Jimmy Greco (Jennifer Lopez, Carlos Santana) simply feels like the perfect next step. "For me, making Independence Day has been a transition based on emotion and inspiration. Growing up in New Jersey, I listened to great rock bands like Springsteen and Bon Jovi, yet lived in a Puerto Rican household where Salsa was played non-stop. As strange as it might sound, there was no great divide between the two styles," explains Frankie. Always looking to up the ante, the talented Negron took steps to begin working on the album in mid-2008. Negron has written some of the most powerful & high energy songs on Independence Day with what Can I Say, holding on to Love and stand By Me and Fight - messages that leave no question of his intention for the upcoming record. I can rock, but Im still a romantic guy,smiles Negron, you have to have emotion when you sing. If you don't make me feel, I'm not into it. I like to make people feel. The last 10 years have proven that Frankie is that great artist with great songs. He is confident his fan base is going to make the transition with him, assuring them that he wont be going very far. Having recorded with major record labels throughout his entire career, Frankie has made his home with indie label Airgo Music, founded by the album's producer, Jimmy Greco. I started Airgo Music mostly out of frustration with the major labels, says Greco, I wanted to embrace the new digital world of music. If you have a great artist and great songs, there's no reason why you shouldnt be heard. From here, Negron and Airgo Music look to be a perfect fit for one another. As a singer, you shouldn't be pigeonholed. You have to remember singing is an art, and if you're influenced by certain music, and your passion comes from the heart, why not try something new? I will absolutely go back and do another salsa record, I haven't left it behind; I just want to do more than one thing. Once people hear this album, there will be no doubt to my audience that this is just another facet of who I am.

Capriccio - Metropolitan Opera

The Strokes - Madison Square Garden
April 01, 2011 -

When they emerged from the New York scene at the turn of the millennium, the scruffy, hip, Seventies-inflected Strokes seemed to embody the very nature of downtown cool &mdash mixing Lou Reed vocals and as much sweaty, garage-rock mystique as you could pack into three-minute tunes &mdash despite the fact that most of the band had grown up uptown. Thanks to a truckload of positive press and the terrific Modern Age EP, the Strokes were famous before they even put out a full-length album. When they released one, 2001's Is This It, the band backed up the buzz with killer hooks, making New York's Lower East Side sound cool again. Their second full-length album, 2003's Room on Fire (Number Four) offered a more polished version of the Is This It template. For First Impressions of Earth (Number Four, 2006), they expanded their sonic palette, at times almost willfully, casting some doubt as to their direction. Later in 2006, Hammond Jr. released his debut, Yours to Keep, in the U.K.; it saw U.S. issue a year later and his second solo album, Como Te Llama? was released in July 2008, shortly after Casablancas&rsuot; single with Pharrell and Santogold promoting Converse dropped. The band's much anticipated upcoming album, Angles, drops on March 22 from RCA records in the U.S.

10th Annual Eric Clapton Birthday Celebration - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 01, 2011 -

GODFREY TOWNSEND - Currently Guitarist & Vocalist for ALAN PARSONS PROJECT & previously with The John Entwistle Band, Jack Bruce & Todd Rundgren's "Abbey Road" Band - leads a stellar line-up of players paying tribute to Slowhand honoring his 66th birthday.

After hearing Godfrey jamming on some Cream tunes in a club one night, Eric Clapton's guitar technician, Lee Dickson commented to John Entwistle, "This guy's got Clapton down better than Clapton!"

What made Clapton unique? Rather than simply replicate the blues riffs he'd heard on record, Clapton incorporated the emotion of the original performances into his own style of playing, thus expanding the vocabulary of blues guitar. The only triple inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of both The Yardbirds and Cream and as a solo artist), Eric Clapton continues to astonish and delight a vast spectrum of music lovers.

"...at the age of 18 I didn't expect to live beyond 25, you know, and when I did I was very surprised..." -ERIC CLAPTON.

Le Comte Ory - Metropolitan Opera
April 02, 2011 -

Rossini's vocally dazzling comedy soars with bel canto sensation Juan Diego Florez in the title role of this Met premiere production. He vies with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, in the trouser role of Isolier, for the love of the lonely Countess Adele, sung by soprano Diana Damrau. Bartlett Sher, director of the Met's popular productions of Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Les Contes d'Hoffmann, describes the world of Le Comte Ory as, "a place where love is dangerous. People get hurt. That can be very funny and very painful. Rossini captures both -- with the most beautiful love music he ever wrote."

April 02, 2011 -

Bryn Terfel, singing his first, much-anticipated Met Wotan, leads the cast in Das Rheingold, the Ring's first installment. In collaboration with Ex Machina.

Walter Trout - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
April 02, 2011 -

Walter Trout's 20th album is called Common Ground, but for the visionary roots singer, songwriter and guitarist that's more than a title. It's where Trout's compelling music resides -- in a territory that unites blues, rock and pure sonic adventurism, where inspiration and technique meet to create a unique, soulful language. That language has won Trout fans across the world. Britain's BBC Radio One placed him at number six on their list of the Top 20 guitarists and legendary BBC disc jockey Bob Harris calls Trout "the world's greatest rock guitarist." "Music gives you an opportunity to speak directly to people's hearts - it goes beyond words," says Trout, who developed his craft playing alongside such legends as John Mayall and John Lee Hooker. "There are times when I'm playing guitar when I enter a state where I'm not consciously aware of what I'm playing. It's like a signal coming through me." And that signal's loud and clear on Common Ground's tunes like the title track, a plea of unity, and the autobiographical "Open Book." Produced by the famed John Porter and featuring drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp, John Fogerty), bassist Hutch Hutchinson and pianist Jon Cleary (both of Bonnie Raitt's band), the album sets a new bar for Trout's already illustrious career.

Monodramas - New York City Opera Company
Through April 08, 2011 -

This triple bill of cutting-edge one-acts features three sopranos in awe-inspiring performances that take opera to the edge of drama and virtuosity. These tour-de-force roles showcase the work of vital innovators of modern music and celebrated collaborators from the worlds of visual and performance art. New York's prolific composer John Zorn takes the soprano on a bravura collision course of elemental sound in "La Machine de L'etre", inspired by the drawings of seminal theater artist Antonin Artaud. In Arnold Schoenberg's groundbreaking "Erwartung" or Expectation, dramatic soprano Kara Shay Thomson portrays a terrified woman groping through a dark forest in search of her lover, only to find that darkness dwells within her. A 1976 meeting between composer Morton Feldman and playwright Samuel Beckett yielded "Neither", a stream-of-consciousness creation which investigates altered states of mind and awareness.

This heart-warming comedy features exciting young voices performing some of the most recognizable melodies in opera. Soprano Stefania Dovhan.
