May 16, 2019 - Jersey City

I'VE BEEN PLAYING MUSIC AND TOURING AROUND THE WORLD FOR A WHILE. I'VE RELEASED OVER 10 LP'S ON DIFFERENT LABELS. MAYBE 11, OR 12. I LIKE TOURING. I MUST. FOR A MORE DETAILED AND PROFESSIONAL BIOGRAPHY WITH AN EMPHASIS ON THE LATEST AND GREATEST PLEASE CONTINUE READING. Chuck Prophet describes his new disc BOBBY FULLER DIED FOR YOUR SINS as "California Noir." He says, "the state has always represented the Golden Dream, and it's the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs. Doomed love, inconsolable loneliness, rags to riches to rags again, and fast-paced violence are always on the menu on the Left Coast."

Passageways: Songs of Connection, Abnormal & Sublime - Dixon Place
May 16, 2019 - New York

Written, performed, composed by Amy Oestreicher Passageways explores the physical and emotional repairs that accompany the path to recovery from a decade of the playwright's autobiographical trauma, including sexual abuse by a trusted mentor, rapidly succeeded by a gastrectomy, coma, organ failure, six years unable to eat or drink a drop of fluid, 28 reconstructive surgeries and the long-winded journey of PTSD that follows. This multidisciplinary narrative explores trauma through the archetypal hero's journey, incorporating live-painting, movement, and original music while illustrated by mixed-media art, and visual media. The story follows the exploration of a woman redefining 'home' after trauma. She recreates herself through the discovery of the arts and is able to reclaim her voice and rejoin her community. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder begins a call to adventure through an archetypal hero's journey.

Big Band B-3: Joey DeFrancesco with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra - Jazz at Lincoln Center
May 17, 2019 - New York

Joey DeFrancesco—arguably the greatest jazz organist alive—joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for the first time. With two 61-note keyboards, a 25-note bass pedal board controlled by foot, and multiple custom drawbars, the Hammond organ is practically a full band by itself. This expansive instrument is rarely paired with a big band, but it adds a rich new dimension when the musicians are up to the challenge. Tonight, DeFrancesco and the JLCO will explore two classic records that defied the organ's typical small group confines and left fans craving more. First up is Duke Ellington's New Orleans Suite, a lesser-known and delightfully varied repertoire of Ellington excellence. The original recording featured organ only on the gospel-tinged "Blues for New Orleans," but DeFrancesco and JLCO trombonist Vincent Gardner are excitedly cooking up new arrangements to expand its role. The second half of the show explores Oliver Nelson's unique take on Peter & The Wolf, a playful suite full of fiery solos by legendary organist Jimmy Smith. DeFrancesco is one of jazz's most entertaining and stunningly virtuosic musicians, and he has wanted to play this music with the JLCO for a ... (read more)

These songs, simultaneously written and recorded in single takes, are products of Tepfer's improvisations interacting with his own computer programs; his algorithms process the music to instantly create counterparts and trigger the Disklavier's keys to express sound.

Meat Puppets Sumo Princess, Stephen Maglio - Monty Hall
May 18, 2019 - Jersey City

At their induction into the Arizona Music & Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2017, the Meat Puppets, one of the most compelling, original and enduring bands in rock history, managed to both honor their story and introduce its next chapter. On that night in August, at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, founding members Curt Kirkwood, on vocals and guitar; his brother Cris Kirkwood, on bass and vocals; and Derrick Bostrom, on drums, joined together onstage for the first time in over two decades. Throughout a set that included era-defining songs like “Lake of Fire,” “Plateau” and “Backwater,” the chemistry was more than promising, as Bostrom isn’t shy to point out. “It was so intense that even I couldn’t deny it!” he recalled recently. “It was just like, now I remember why we did this. It was magical.” The white-hot enthusiasm he felt at that awards ceremony in Phoenix hasn’t waned. That rekindling has resulted in Dusty Notes, the band’s new Megaforce release and the first Meat Puppets studio album Bostrom has participated in since 1995’s No Joke! “This is a classic situation where the project took us over and we way exceeded our expectations,” he said of Dusty Notes, going on to ca...

May 18, 2019 - Brooklyn

Contemporaneous is an ensemble of 22 musicians whose mission is to bring to life the music of the present. In this groundbreaking collaboration with berimbau sextet Projeto Arcomusical, disparate traditions of string instruments collide in an explosion of radical new music that draws from diverse traditions of ancient string instruments. The program builds a musical atlas of the ubiquitous and eclectic history of music for strings, from the kora to the harp to the cello to the berimbau. In two world premiere works by Elliot Cole and Ian Gottlieb written for Contemporaneous and Arcomusical, the visionary composers reimagine the sound of the berimbau (the one-string Afro-Brazilian percussion instrument known for its use in capoeira) to stretch its expressive possibilities in a new context.

Street Art Pilgrimage in Bushwick - Street Art Pilgrimage
Through June 21, 2019 - Brooklyn

Bushwick has long enjoyed a reputation as a mecca for the world’s most illustrious street artists, who have radically altered its urban landscape. Residential, commercial, and industrial buildings have all served as large-scale canvases for muralists to engage with the history, sites, and people of one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Brooklyn. However, local residents and visitors don't always have easy access to basic information regarding any given mural, such as artist biography, artistic motivation, or how the content and style relate to local architecture and the community's rich past. This carefully curated and independently researched tour is designed to provide greater context surrounding key works of art while simultaneously introducing guests to some of Bushwick's local establishments. Whether you’re a native New Yorker looking to find out more about the public art you walk past every day or a tourist in town looking for a less conventional excursion, this 1.5-hour tour offers in-depth information presented in a fun, engaging way. Unlike other tours, we'll only be focusing on a small number of murals, allowing us to dissect the symbolism and meaning as a group.
