Wise Girl LIVE - The Grand Victory
November 06, 2013 - Brooklyn

With a sound somewhere between 90s alternative and rrriot girl, Wise Girl is a sharp, power pop trio that draws from the past but produces something wholly modern. Based in New York, Wise Girl is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Abby Weitz (vocals/guitar). Weitz started the band in 2010 and sought out Chris Fasulo (guitar/producer) to collaborate on a three song EP. Their musical chemistry was immediately evident. Harry Keithline (drums) rounded out Wise Girl’s sound and made the band complete. The band’s unique direction is the product of Weitz’s individual view on the music making process. Weitz, described as “a female Rivers Cuomo” (Electric Feast), deems no topic taboo while transferring her feelings into song. The female frontwoman notes that numerous tracks have been inspired by people who are currently or once were in her life, creating a song-by-song memoir. The emotion and energy found within Wise Girl’s music transfers easily into live performances. Similar to being welcomed into their home, attending a Wise Girl show is electrifying and uncensored. The band, self-described as an energetic, dysfunctional family, radiates across their audiences and invites listeners to become part of Wise Girl’s chaotic world. “We want the audience to feel like they can relate to us and share in our experiences,” explains Fasulo. Wise Girl has graced the stage of numerous legendary New York venues such as The Knitting Factory, Mercury Lounge, Piano’s and The Greene Space (WNYC’s performance stage). They have also appeared on numerous famed media sources to include: Beta TV, Playboy Radio, Kate Spade and many more. In 2012, Wise Girl released their self-titled debut 3-song EP to esteemed reviews and helped garner a faithful following. 2013 marked the release of the band’s first, full-length, debut You’ll Just Have To Wait. The album, produced by Wise Girl’s own Chris Fasulo, is a 10-track LP filled with power chords, driving beats and authentic lyrics ripped straight from Weitz’s personal experiences.

This selection of thirteen rarely displayed prints by German Expressionist artist Kathe Kollwitz, from the Brooklyn Museum's collection, focuses on works relating to the impact of war.

Born in Konigsberg, East Prussia, Kollwitz began producing etchings in the late nineteenth century, first working in a naturalistic style and later moving toward Expressionism.
