San‘ani Song: Urban Art Music of Yemen with Ammar Mohammed Hayel - Alwan for the Arts
Through October 15, 2011 - New York

Located at the crossroads of African, Asian, and Arab cultures on the Southwestern part of the Arabian Peninsula, Yemen is one of the oldest centers of civilization in the near East. Due to its distinct historical position on a spice trading route between Europe and Asia, Yemen is home to one of the richest and most unique cultures of the Arab world. This music is performed by a singer/oud player joined by a percussionist, and focuses primarily on the poetry, which is sung in either classical Arabic or Yemeni dialect. Performances usually take place in homes in the late afternoon and evening where performers and audience members alike engage in chewing qat, a mild stimulant leaf chewed throughout Yemen. Distinct from other styles of Arab singing, the Yemeni vocal quality is generally high-pitched and features a fast vibrato. The ‘oud style utilizes a fast plectrum technique, probably based on that of the qanbus, a four-string bass instrument historically used to accompany singing before being replaced by the ‘oud in the mid-20th century. Many diverse musical styles are performed throughout Yemen, from the African-influenced, percussive music of the Tihamma to folk traditions of Hadramawt in the Southeast and the classical Homayni style of the capital, Sana‘a. This form, inscribed in 2003 on UNESCO’s list of intangible heritage, dates to the 14th century and will be the focus of this evening’s performance.

The Moth GrandSLAM XXII Hosted by Dan Kennedy - Highline Ballroom
October 17, 2011 -

The Moth presents the GrandSLAM XXII, a battle of wits and words – fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking, and all points between. The Moth is dedicated to finding intriguing people to tell inspired stories. With its StorySLAM shows, The Moth seeks to accommodate all the people who ask, "When can I tell my story?" and to encourage those people who doubted they had a story worth telling. StorySLAM provides a stage and a microphone, a theme to inspire and shape the evening, a lively and supportive audience, and a host to guide the festivities. Stories are limited to five minutes, and ten stories are heard. In tonight's GrandSLAM, using words as weapons, winners of previous StorySLAMs battle it out to become The Moth's GrandSLAM Story Champion. The Moth, a not-for-profit storytelling organization, was founded in New York in 1997 by poet and novelist George Dawes Green, who wanted to recreate in New York the feeling of sultry summer evenings on his native St. Simon's Island, Georgia, where he and a small circle of friends would gather to spin spellbinding tales on his friend Wanda's porch. After moving to New York, Green missed the sense of connection he had felt sharing stories with his friends back home, and he decided to invite a few friends over to his New York apartment to tell and hear stories. Thus the first Moth evening took place in his living room. Word of these captivating story nights quickly spread, and The Moth moved to bigger venues in New York. Today, The Moth conducts six ongoing programs and has brought more than 3,000 live stories to over 100,000 audience members.

Citizen Cope Presents: Alice Smith & Gary Clark Jr. **A CMJ Music Marathon Event** - Highline Ballroom
October 18, 2011 -

ALICE SMITH -

NYC-bred singer, songwriter, and producer Alice Smith, known for her four-octave vocal range and stunning stage presence, made a name for herself with her critically acclaimed 2006 debut album, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me (2006, BBE Records). At the time, her artful blend of bluesy, soulful vocals and mid-tempo grooves garnered a passionate following that packed venues like NYC's Mercury Lounge and Joe's Pub, while Vibe Magazine gushed that her sound "evoke[s] Fiona Apple's finest material." Her single "Dream" was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Urban/Alternative category.

Smith signed to Epic Records after a bidding war and re-released For Lovers in 2007. The next four years were dedicated to writing and recording new material. Meanwhile, Epic experienced a great deal of tumult, and Smith suddenly found herself at an impasse. Though she was producing new material at a steady clip, it was being held back by the inner workings of her label. Though her fans may have wondered what happened to Alice Smith, she was hardly silent during those years. She performed new material for sold-out crowds at top venues like New York's Highline Ballroom, SOB's and Blue Note Jazz Club, and Los Angeles's Wiltern Theater. However, she didn't release any new albums. Today, she's back and eager to share with her fans a hotly-anticipated dose of new music.

GARY CLARK JR. - Rarely does an artist explode onto the music scene with the force and impact of a comet. But when it does happen - as it did when 26-year-old singer and guitarist Gary Clark Jr. delivered an incendiary debut performance of his song "Bright Lights" at Eric Clapton's 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival - the result is magical. Funky, hip, and badass, Clark is a rocking soul man for a new generation. Weaned on John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins, and T-Bone Walker, he fuses his deep blues influence with a love of classic hip hop and contemporary soul, displaying a virtuosity and tone that put most modern rock shredders to shame.

Born and raised in Austin, TX, Clark began playing guitar at age 12 and soon gained local recognition after popping up on the radar of legendary promoter Clifford Antone. He went on to win the Austin Music Award for Best Blues and Electric Guitarist on three separate occasions, play on the nationally televised show Austin City Limits, tour with such artists as Jimmie Vaughan, Pinetop Perkins, and Doyle Bramhall II, and release two self-produced albums. In 2010, he was the only young newcomer to be selected by Eric Clapton to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, where he performed with Doyle Bramhall II and Sheryl Crow. A DVD of the show, released last November, led to Clark's signing with Warner Bros. Records. His latest release, The Bright Lights EP, came out earlier this year on the label.

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.

Kelley Suttenfield: Mondays With the Masters - The Metropolitan Room
Through October 19, 2011 - New York

The Metropolitan Room welcomes jazz singer Kelley Suttenfield this fall on four consecutive Mondays at 7pm: 9/19, 9/26/ 10/3 and 10/10, in a series called “Mondays with the Masters.” Each Monday, Suttenfield will pair her offbeat, jazz-storytelling style with a different guitar master, including Howard Alden on 10/10. The complete lineup is below. Suttenfield released her debut CD, "Where is Love?" in 2009. "Here’s a singer with a lot of great ideas, and the ability to deliver them. It’s her debut disc, and the closest thing I can compare it to is Madeleine Peyroux’s debut Dreamland, way back when. It’s got the same feel...Give me more!" George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly. Suttenfield, New York based with Southern roots, is known internationally for her unusual spin on American music, the Beatles, Brazilian and beyond. She expanded her fan base recently to London, where she debuted at Ronnie Scott's in January 2011. The guitarist lineup is strong and eclectic: Joe Carbone (9/19): Carbone is known as a singers' accompanist, he counts Sammy Davis Jr., Frankie Laine and 60's idol Bobby Rydell among his favorite gigs; Tony Romano (9/26): prolific NYC player who has toured worldwide and played with many Latin, Jazz and Pop artists including Stanley Jordan and Randy Brecker: Vic Juris (10/3): Vic has traveled far and wide with the likes of Jimmy Smith, Sarah Vaughan, Chico Hamilton, Dave Liebman, Richie Cole and Mel Torme, to name only a few greats; and Howard Alden (10/10): Alden needs little intro, but has been described as "may be the best of his generation" by JazzTimes. Bassist Matt Aronoff, whose credits include gigs with Luciana Souza at the Kennedy Center and Birdland with Peter Eldridge, joins every Monday every Monday.

From their origins in Johannesburg, South Africa, The Parlotones have achieved multi-platinum-selling status in their home country, selling more records than Coldplay, The Killers, and Oasis together. In 2010, the four-piece rock band completed a sold-out, 300-date, 18-month world tour which brought the group to the attention of music fans in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Benelux, Russia, the US, and the UK - where they packed out 1000+ capacity venues by word of mouth alone. In 2011, the band has started to conquer North America, selling out New York, Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles on the group's first ever North American headlining tour. The Boston Herald declared "The Parlotones could be huge here. Killers Huge. Muse Huge. Coldplay Huge."

The band's achievements over the last several years demonstrate the universal appeal of the group's darkly romantic lyrics and anthemic songs. Over the course of three full-length releases, the band has enjoyed 15 top-10 hits in South Africa. The group's music has been heard in "Jersey Shore," "I Used To Be Fat," "Pretty Little Liars," and "One Tree Hill." In addition, music industry showcases at South by South West, MIDEM, and Dubai Sound City have firmly established The Parlotones as one of the world's most exciting new acts.

October 20, 2011 -

Along with his band, Bassekou Kouyate is a new voice from this tradition, an intensely energetic performer whose fiery virtuosity with the rhythmic Malian lute called the "ngoni" has brought him international renown, including collaborations with Ali Farka Touré, Carlos Santana, and Béla Fleck.

The Summer Set The Downtown Fiction Plug In Stereo Allison Park My Girl Friday **A CJM Music Marathon Event** - Highline Ballroom
October 20, 2011 -

Everything's Fine, the second offering from Arizona-based pop-punk outfit The Summer Set, is in many ways about a band that has grown up after making its mark when its members were teenagers. To say the album is only about growing up, however, is an understatement - and, actually, a disservice to the collective experience of the group. Although the band released its first EP in 2007, guitarist John Gomez was only 11 when he and his brother (and current bandmate) Stephen started playing music together, and the two were still just teenagers when what became known as The Summer Set was formed, with drummer Jess Bowen, guitarist Josh Montgomery, and frontman Brian Dales.

Growing up in Arizona, the group led a new scene of punk upstarts, inspired by the likes of fellow Arizonians Jimmy Eat World and The Format. "It was a cool scene," says Gomez. "We'd play for 1000 kids on a Friday night. And there were so many good young bands, they would inspire us and push us to get better. It was sort of like a competition." More experience came from the road. After releasing its first full-length album, Love Like This, in 2009, the group went on tour ... and never really stopped, playing 300 shows a year and a main support slot on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour. By the time The Summer Set was ready for album number two (released this summer), it was almost like the group had become a different band.

Everything's Fine presents a more nuanced story of The Summer Set. Even the sad face on the album's cover is a hint that there are several new sides to the group. "The title is a bit sarcastic," admits Gomez. "Our first record was just one emotion. Everything's Fine is yin and yang. We've had some ups and downs recently, some breakups, some general trials and tribulations." Besides finishing the new record, the band has also been busy recently opening for All Time Low and Yellowcard, as well as experiencing its music in a whole new context: blanketed all over television, from VH1 and Jersey Shore to Dancing with the Stars, where Dales's ex (actress Chelsea Kane) danced to the band's first hit "Chelsea." As the band continues its rapid ascent, its newest album serves as a fitting benchmark for where its members are today. Says Gomez: "We're young, but growing up and experiencing new things. [We're] optimistic."

Lalah Hathaway - Highline Ballroom
October 21, 2011 -

Full dinner menu available General Admission Standing Room Limited seating available First come, first seated All ages

Born to Donny Hathaway, one of the most influential soul artists of the '80s, and Eulaulah Hathaway, an accomplished musician in her own right, Chicago native Lalah Hathaway first put pen to music paper as a 10th grader. Later, as a student at Berklee College of Music, she recorded her self-titled debut in 1990, which spawned the hits "Baby Don't Cry," "Heaven Only Knows," and "I'm Coming Back." She returned four years later with A Moment, followed by the much-lauded The Song Lives On, her duet album with Joe Sample, in 1999 - the same year she began growing her now-signature, cinnamon-hued dreadlocks. By 2004, she delivered her fourth album, Outrun the Sky, garnering Hathaway her first No. 1 single, her cover of Luther Vandross's "Forever, For Always, For Love." Her fifth studio album, Self Portrait, came out in 2008.

Although she has created a space for herself, it's not surprising that Hathaway remains connected to her late, great father and his classic sound. "I am his daughter," she says softly, "and that's the truth of who I am, every day. Like my father, I want to leave a legacy of music that makes people really feel something, whether it be happiness, sadness, grief, or heartache. I also want them to appreciate my humor, which I know can be difficult to interpret in a song."

Hathaway is poised to release her sixth album, Where It All Begins, this October. In the meantime, and between album projects, she keeps her creativity nourished by collaborating frequently (including projects with Marcus Miller, Meshell Ndegéocello, and Mary J. Blige) and by taking to the global stage and contributing her voice to Daughters of Soul, a musical mélange founded by comrade Sandra St. Victor and featuring Nona Hendryx and Joyce Kennedy, as well as Indira and Simone, daughters of Chaka Khan and Nina Simone, respectively.

In a typically freethinking and wide-ranging program, violinist Gidon Kremer connects this mystical composer's works with Silvestrov, Shostakovich, and J.S. Bach's Chaconne for solo violin.

Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies - American Museum of Natural History
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. It explores how such imaging technologies -- including infrared photography, scanning electron microscopy, and computed tomography (CT) -- make it possible to examine and analyze a range of specimens at levels of detail previously unimaginable, advancing science and providing new insights into the visual splendor of the universe.
