Phantogram - Kings Theatre
September 05, 2019 - Brooklyn

Phantogram — the New York-born duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel — has continued for almost a decade to change the zeitgeist by consistently challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia, and electronic pop. Since the arrival of 2010's debut album Eyelid Movies and its two successors Voices and Three, the band has amassed nearly half-a-billion streams, achieved two Gold-Certified singles in the form of "Fall In Love" and "When I'm Small," and become a festival staple while headlining sold out shows worldwide.

Blackberry Smoke - Brooklyn Bowl
Through September 07, 2019 - Brooklyn

Pigeonholing Blackberry Smoke has never been easy. Since emerging from Atlanta in the early '00s, the quintet—vocalist/lead guitarist Charlie Starr, guitarist/vocalist Paul Jackson, bassist/vocalist Richard Turner, drummer Brit Turner and keyboardist Brandon Still—has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk. This fluidity has paid off handsomely, in the form of two Billboard chart-topping country albums, 2015's Holding All The Roses and 2016's Like An Arrow. (For good measure, the latter also topped Billboard's Americana/Folk album chart.) Find A Light, Blackberry Smoke's sixth studio album, doubles down on diversity. Songs hew toward easygoing roots-rock ("Run Away From It All") and Southern rock stomps ("The Crooked Kind"), as well as stripped-down acoustic numbers ("I've Got This Song") and bruising alt-country ("Nobody Gives A Damn"). Rich instrumental flourishes—keening fiddle, solemn organ and bar-band piano boogie—add further depth and resonance. "That's one of my favorite things about Blackberry Smoke albums—there's a lot of variety," Starr says. "My favorite albums through the years are built that way, too. I love a record tha...

911 Memorial Concert - The Creative Cultural Center St. Veronica
September 08, 2019 - New York

Schiller Institute NYC Chorus 9-11 Memorial Concert, featuring Johannes Brahms Nänie Op. 82, Franz Schubert Mass in G, J.S. Bach Jesu, Meine Freude, and African-American Spirituals. The Schiller Chorus has performed concerts on 9-11 every year since 2016, when it performed four back-to-back performances of Mozart's Requiem in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and New Jersey. These concerts and the rehearsal process leading into them constitute a living memorial for those who perished on 9-11 and those who have since died as a result of those tragic attacks. It is for us, the living, to commit to creating a world of beauty and peace. The keystone of this year's tribute will be a performance of Johannes Brahm's beautiful choral and orchestral arrangement of the poem by Friedrich Schiller, Nänie. This poem takes up through the lens of ancient Greek mythology the question of the inevitability of death: "Auch das Schöne muß sterben," that even the beautiful must die! This sad occurrence can bring even goddesses to tears. However, their death is not the end when we sing in honor of those dead. Through our songs of lament we give them immortality. They may die, but beauty itself does ... (read more)

Monty Alexander - Blue Note
Through September 08, 2019 - New York

Nearly sixty years after he moved to the United States from Kingston, Jamaica, his hometown, Grammy nominated pianist Monty Alexander is an American classic, touring the world relentlessly with various projects, delighting a global audience drawn to his vibrant personality and soulful message. A perennial favorite at Jazz festivals and venues worldwide and at the Montreux Jazz Festival where he has appeared 23 times since 1976, his spirited conception is one informed by the timeless verities: endless melody-making, effervescent grooves, sophisticated voicings, a romantic spirit, and a consistent predisposition, as Alexander accurately states, "to build up the heat and kick up a storm." In the course of any given performance, Alexander applies those aesthetics to a repertoire spanning a broad range of jazz and Jamaican musical expressions—the American songbook and the blues, gospel and bebop, calypso and reggae. Documented on more than 75 recordings and cited as the fifth greatest jazz pianist ever in The Fifty Greatest Jazz Piano Players of All Time (Hal Leonard Publishing), the Jamaican government designated Alexander Commander in the Order of Distinction in 2000 and in 2018 The U...
