December 03, 2017 - New York

Two people fall in love, decide to spend their lives together, find an officiant, stand under a Chuppah to take their vows — and then celebrate their joy. Except in Israel, it's not that simple. You are cordially invited to a very special Triple Wedding; a celebration not only of love and commitment but of the equality of all Jews. In Temple Emanu-El's historic sanctuary, prominent rabbis representing Judaism's different movements will join in matrimony three Israeli couples who are deprived of the right to marry at home because they are either gay, not considered Jews according to Israel's chief rabbinate, or because they reject the rabbinate's rigid control over Jewish marriages and divorces. Join us to support them and the cause of religious freedom and equal rights in Israel. The roar of Mazel Tov will be heard around the world. Special remarks by Anat Hoffman, Executive Director of the Israel Religious Action Center and Director and Founding Member of Women of the Wall.

We are wild anti-consumerist gospel shouters and Earth loving urban activists who have worked with communities on four continents defending community, life and imagination. Our Devils over the 15 years of our "church" have remained the same: Consumerism and Militarism. In this time of the Earth's crisis - we are especially mindful of the extractive imperatives of global capital. Our activist performance and concert stage performance have always worked in parallel. The activism is content for the play. Our Director for both kinds of performances is Savitri D. We have won an OBIE Award, the Alpert Award, The Dramalogue Award and The Historic Districts Council's Preservation Award (for leading demonstrations to save Manhattan's Poe House), and half of our singing activists have been jailed, most frequently during Occupy Wall Street. Reverend Billy has been arrested about 70 times. We employ multiple strategies, including cash register exorcisms, retail interventions, and cell phone operas. Ou... (read more)

Brooke Shields, Tonya Pinkins, Lesley Ann Warren, Joyce Bulifant, Dana Ivey and Brad Oscar bring Disney's The Happiest Millionaire to life at Joe's Pub, in a one-night only 50th Anniversary celebratory concert, to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The Happiest Millionaire, premiering in 1967, was the final live action Disney production to be overseen by Walt Disney, himself. Containing over 80 minutes of Golden Age Disney music and dance, the fantastic score is by Mary Poppins composers and Disney legends, Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman. Originally starring such icons as Fred MacMurray, Greer Garson, Gladys Cooper and Geraldine Page, The Happiest Millionaire also welcomed the Hollywood screen debuts of Tommy Steele, John Davidson and Lesley Ann Warren. Set in 1916 Philadelphia, the film is based on the real lives of eccentric renaissance man, alligator collector and boxing enthusiast, Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, and his daughter Cordy, a fiercely independent fighter who, like all Disney princesses, wants to discover the world on her own terms.

Liturgy Class with Canon Malloy - The Cathedral Church of Saint John The Divine
December 03, 2017 - Upper West Side

The Episcopal Church is the American member of the Anglican Communion of Churches. Anglicans, perhaps more than any other Christian group, trust the liturgy (rather than, say, theological study or a personal conversion experiences) to form them and, conversely, to express their most deeply held convictions about God, the creation, and the human person. In the coming weeks, we will explore the roots and the theology of the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. This class takes place in the Chapel of St. James after the 11 am Choral Eucharist on Sundays throughout the year, with the exception of the second Sunday of the month.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 'Some Loud Thunder' 10th Anniversary Tour - The Bowery Ballroom
December 03, 2017 - New York

Some Loud Thunder was an album written mostly as a reaction to the not unwelcome but still uncomfortable great interest in the band's first album, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Depending on who you asked, in 2007 the band was known alternatively as the "real thing" or a flash in the pan, a band who presented a new paradigm for independent music or whose model was based on sheer luck, a band simply enjoying the process of creation or a (relatively) new band struggling to maintain some sort of illusory artistic foothold. The general desire to discover the "secret" behind the project (and the irritation that it caused me in interviews, reviews, etc.) was, to a large degree, what drove the creation of the album, Some Loud Thunder. Mostly, this is evidenced in the songs, Some Loud Thunder ("Yes, that was me breaking glass and pretending to start something big, some new taste") and Satan Said Dance ("Satan" here as the transitory faction of an audience which tends to disappear as soon as any chances are taken), but in others as well. I think that this album, from the abrasive first track (which was not as much of a fuck you as some think but rather that it simply worked) to the final d... (read more)

Medieval Japan: People & Systems in the World of the Shogunate - Japan Society
Through December 03, 2017 - New York

North Korea's missile and nuclear program has intensified and reached new heights, and its ability to launch a missile capable of hitting the United States is advancing far more rapidly than predicted. With one of the most important holidays coming up on October 10th in North Korea, experts speculate the country will celebrate Party Foundation Day with another missile test. In October, the United States will be sending an aircraft carrier to the Korean Peninsula for a military drill with South Korea, which could further increase tension in the region. How should the United States, Japan, and other countries respond? Will China exert its economic influence over North Korea? Is there a possibility that the situation would further escalate? This program examines the latest developments, how the United States and its allies should respond to Pyongyang's missile launch, and the way forward on North Korea. Speaker: Robert L. Gallucci, Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy, Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University; former Chief U.S. Negotiator during North Korean Nuclear Crisis of 1994 Discussant: Tim Ferguson, Editor, Forbes Asia Agenda 8:00—8:30 ...

Performing Art History: Revisiting The Lumpen Headache - Pioneer Works
Through December 03, 2017 - Brooklyn

Reenact historic political conversations between prominent New York artists of the late twentieth century in this two day workshop. Using transcripts published in 1976, participants will take on roles and collaborate to stage and record the event. Together, we will create a video/sound/performance work from beginning to end, and each participant will walk away with a copy of the finished work, as well as a deeper knowledge of this little-known moment in the history of conceptual art. Those participating in the workshop will be involved in the analysis and co-creation of a series of conversations that marked the end of the art journal The Fox along with the New York section of the artist collective Art and Language in 1976. The conversations documented in the final issue of the journal are at turns caustic, politically incisive, self-critical, petty, and brutally honest. They form a historical index to the way art, politics, and political commitment were thought in a politically volatile time. The workshop uses the article as a script to think about our own volatile moment and the words we use to describe it and hopefully change it. Background: In 1976, a series of exchanges ...

This unique and intimate female symposium, held monthly at Caveat, features representative speakers in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties and seventy-and-over presenting short original essays and experiences centered on a given topic. Host and event co-founder Georgia Clark (author of The Regulars and the YA novels She's with the Band and Parched), was moved to create Generation Women following conversations with her mother, Jayne, about the sense that women disappear from public conversation as they get older. Clark was inspired to create a safe and welcoming space where women of all ages could join together to be celebrated, explore their experiences and learn from one another. "We live in a society that simply doesn't value older women," says Clark. "With Generation Women, we've created an event where women can come together to tell their own stories and glean vital and vibrant cross-generational wisdom. Also, we can drink wine. Wine is very important." Generation Women combines the vivacity of a literary salon with the importance of a community m... (read more)

An Evening With David Rawlings - Brooklyn Steel
December 05, 2017 - Brooklyn

Acclaimed songwriter and guitarist David Rawlings will release his freshly pressed third album, Poor David's Almanack, on August 11th via Acony Records. For Poor David's Almanack, Rawlings leaves the Dave Rawlings Machine moniker behind and serves up a wry mixture of acoustic and electric music rich in ageless American vernacular. The album of ten new songs was crafted by studio wizards Ken Scott (Beatles, David Bowie) and Matt Andrews on analog tape during a week of sessions at legendary Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Rawlings and longtime compatriot Gillian Welch joined together with Willie Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes to produce an album for all seasons. The touring iteration of Rawlings' band, the all-star Dave Rawlings Machine, will embark on the first leg of a national tour this August to support Poor David's Almanack, as well as perform favorites from the first two Dave Rawlings Machine records, A Friend of A Friend and Nashville Obsolete.

December 05, 2017 - New York

American history buff and raconteur, Doug Brin, provides a colorful overview of America's First Ladies — from those of undeniable prominence and public stature — such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton — to the lesser-known but intriguing women whose presence and support proved invaluable to their husbands. These are women from a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds, who determinedly melded their life situations in ways that furthered and heightened the prospects of their husbands, who sometimes unexpectedly gained the presidency. Learn how an unfortunate number of First Ladies suffered the premature deaths of beloved children — or even themselves. Taken as a whole, the panoply of these figures reflect both the persistent and changing roles of women in our society.

Fashion Icons with Fern Mallis: Eileen Fisher - 92nd Street Y
December 05, 2017 - New York

Eileen Fisher founded her eponymous clothing company, known for its simple shapes and beautiful fabrics, in 1984 with $350 in startup money. Her first order at a New York clothing design show was for $3,000, which was followed three months later with $40,000 in additional sales. The original concept — pieces that work together to help women get dressed easily — still defines the company's collections. "I never set out to be a clothing designer," says Fisher. "I was an uncomfortable person, and so I wanted comfortable clothes. And I hated shopping. There were too many choices; it was too complicated and a big waste of time. I wanted clothes like the simple shift dresses my mother made — easy, not fussy, and flattering." In 2005, Fisher sold the $300 million company to her 875 employees through an employee stock ownership plan. She is now the chief creative officer. Fisher joins Fern Mallis to discuss how she marries her passion for design with her dedication to sustainability and human rights.

His best-known books of poetry are De Mayor of Harlem (1970) and Neo-California (1998), and he has read a selection of his poetry for the permanent archives of the Library of Congress. Author of the lyrics to Sun Ra's composition "Love in Outer Space," he has also recorded with the saxophonists and composers Ornette Coleman and David Murray and the cornetist and composer Butch Morris. He is the author of 'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky: Jimi Hendrix: Kingfish, My Kingfish, Uncle Kingfish Kingfish, my Kingfish, Uncle Kingfish, in the darkness of the country, slight smile around his perpendicular cigar. Brown face lost in the darkness, dark pants fading into the black, the white apron an apparition, a ghost of service: soda and potato chips for the boy, a swab of white cloth across the hardwood hull of the bar that was indeed at sea for that voyage of the day to night to end in the death of dawn.

A 2nd Stereogum Christmas Show Featuring Charly Bliss Mannequin Pussy, Remember Sports - Baby's All Right
December 05, 2017 - Brooklyn

If it's true that listening to just the right record at just the right moment can psychically transport you to some other time and place, then Charly Bliss-an NYC band responsible for having crafted some of the finest guitar-crunched power pop this side of an old Weezer record with a blue cover-can pretty much turn any space into an adult-friendly version of your old teenage bedroom, a candy-scented safe space for extreme fits of happiness and angsty teen-level explosions of romantic ennui. Though Charly Bliss has been a band for over half a decade, the path that led to their first full-length record, Guppy, has been anything but straightforward. As the story goes, the band officially started when frontwoman Eva Hendricks and guitarist Spencer Fox, both just 15, crossed paths at a Tokyo Police Club show in New York City, but the ties within the band go much deeper than that. "It's kind of insane and hilarious," says Eva, "Sam is my older brother, so obviously we've known each other our whole lives, but all of us have been connected to each other since we were little kids. Dan Shure and I dated when we were in our early teens and he and Spencer went to summer camp together. Dan and... (read more)

What Is Life: Is Life Inevitable? - Caveat
December 06, 2017 - New York

The question “What is life?” takes just three words. But it is one of the hardest questions in science, attracting researchers from a huge range of disciplines, from molecular biology to astronomy to philosophy. This fall, science writer Carl Zimmer delves into this question by talking to eight experts over four nights to understand what the newest research tells us about life. December 6th’s performance will feature physicist Jeremy England and biologist Steven Benner, tackles the question “Is life inevitable?” Jeremy England is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at MIT. Trained both as a biochemist and as a theoretical physicist, he has long been fascinated by the way living things function at the molecular level, and did his early work on the statistical mechanics of protein structure. More recently, he has become interested in understanding the physics of when and how matter starts to behave in life-like ways. Self-replication, energy harvesting, and predictive computation are all hallmarks of life – Dr. England applies principles of thermodynamics to understanding when these and other phenomenon might be expected to emerge spontaneously.

Warhol's Factory Workers - Museum of the City of New York
December 06, 2017 - New York

In this double bill, we present two of the foundational works of the 1960's underground on glorious 16 mm, inspired by our upcoming exhibition, Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip (opens November 22). Flaming Creatures (Jack Smith, 1963, 45 min) From the late summer into the early fall of 1962, on $300 and the sun-beaten rooftop of an old East Village movie house, Jack Smith labored to consecrate a new kind of cinema, one where, as he once wrote, "it is possible to clown, to pose, to act out fantasies, to not be seen while one gives." The result was an ethereal vision, fashioned from buckets of plaster and beds of flowers, from garbage and gauze, but above all from bodies clothed and unclothed, male, female, and indistinguishable, dancing and writhing against a single, nine foot square backdrop of a painted vase. Alternately revered and denounced, pulled from circulation and later retrieved, here is the film itself, bold, unblushing, and beautiful.

Intelligence Squared Us Debates: Liberals Hold the Moral High Ground - Kaufman Music Center
December 07, 2017 - New York

Intelligence Squared US Debates: Liberals Hold the Moral High Ground Do conservative or liberal philosophies lead to more just outcomes? Opposing moral philosophies have long fueled debate about America's policy goals and national identity. For conservatives, morality is grounded in ideals such as patriotism, including a respect for order and authority; fairness and liberty in the sense that an individual's actions yield just rewards, or consequences; and reverence for the sanctity of religious and moral tradition. Liberals place moral emphasis on caring: for the poor, the disadvantaged, and the marginalized; on fairness in the sense of redressing both historic wrongs and current inequalities of outcome; and on generosity extending beyond the bounds of nations or cultures. In today's divisive political arena, which side best embodies the nation's most cherished virtues? Morally speaking, is the left right?

n a career spanning more than 25 years, Joe Henry has left an indelible and unique imprint on American popular music. As a songwriter and artist, Henry is celebrated for his exploration of the human experience. A hyper-literate storyteller, by turns dark, devastating, and hopeful, he draws an author's eye for the overlooked detail across a broad swath of American musical styles -- rock, jazz and blues -- rendering genre modifiers useless. Henry has collaborated with many notable American artists on his own body of work, from T Bone Burnett, Daniel Lanois, and Van Dyke Parks on one side of the spectrum, to Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, Brad Mehldau, and Bill Frisell on the other. A three-time-Grammy-winning producer, Henry has made records for Bonnie Raitt, Hugh Laurie, Lisa Hannigan, Elvis Costello, and Solomon Burke among many others. Additionally, Henry has taken his musical talents to film and television. He has scored music for the films Jesus' Son, Knocked Up, and Motherhood, as well as produced tracks for the film I'm Not There. His song "Stars" was featured in the closing credits in the fourth season of HBO's Six Feet Under. In 2013, Algonquin Press published, "Furious Coo... (read more)

Winterreise Nights Festival: Dear Edvard - National Sawdust
December 10, 2017 - Brooklyn

Dear Edvard is a new music-theater piece, directed by Kevin Newbury, about the life and loves of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944). Written by Richard Michelson and Steven Schoenberg, Dear Edvard is part art history biopic, love story, psychological exploration and family drama. Munch (sung by baritone Timothy McDevitt) is set in the same hospital room at Dr. Jacobsen's Clinic for Nervous Disorders and Alcoholism, where the artist committed himself in 1908. His young nurse (played by Broadway singer Pearl Sun), now elderly, confesses her long ago passion for her famous patient, and transports us back to the beginnings of psychoanalysis, sexual liberation, and the birth of modern art. Through her eyes we meet the various women in Munch's life, and a picture emerges of the social and emotional upheavals that would affect and form the iconic artist, as well as reflecting the anxiety, self-awareness and pursuit of meaning and inner-peace that have come to define our own lives today. This performance is supported in part by the Royal Norwegian Consulate General.

The Adolf Eichmann And David Irving Trials: A Study In Contrasts & Similarities Featuring Deborah Lipstadt - Museum of Jewish Heritage
December 10, 2017 - New York

In 1961, Deborah Lipstadt (Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies, Emory University)—then only 13 years old—sat transfixed in front of the television with her family as Adolf Eichmann was accused of being the chief operational officer of the Final Solution. More than 30 years later, Lipstadt found herself at the center of another highly publicized Holocaust trial, this time as a Holocaust historian accused of libel. In the Eichmann trial, survivors' courtroom testimony—which was itself not without controversy played a central role in convicting Eichmann. In the David Irving trial, no survivors were allowed to testify. Lipstadt will discuss these two trials, of different centuries, with vastly different protagonists, but with one common thread: the raw anti-Semitism that provided fertile ground for Eichmann's commission of the crimes, and Irving's later denial of those crimes. $25 general, $15 Museum members, $7 students

By a Thread - a Daughter's Search for Her Mother's Hidden Identity - Center for Jewish History
December 10, 2017 - New York

Speaker: Marisa Fox New York journalist Marisa Fox knew her mother as Tamar Fromer Fox, a self-proclaimed freedom fighter and hero of the Israeli War of Independence. But Tamar's Polish roots were more elusive, as she avoided any conversation of how she escaped the fate that claimed her own mother and large family who were murdered at Auschwitz. Nearly 20 years after Tamar died, Marisa discovers her mother had a hidden identity and goes in search of it. Her quest takes her to her mother's Polish hometown-Sonowiec, where she finds records bearing a name and family members she had never heard before, addresses that take her through doorways she never thought she'd cross, and eventually to an obscure alpine village in the Czech Republic where her mother and thousands of other Polish Jewish girls were imprisoned for up to 4 1/2 years in Nazi forced women's labor camps. Though Tamar always denied she was a Holocaust survivor, Marisa finds evidence to the contrary and ponders the nature of identity. After a 7-year investigation from Manhattan to Melbourne, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Detroit, Haifa, Berlin, and Malmo, Sweden, finding survivors and relatives who knew her mother, Fox has directe...

Obdurate Space: Architecture of Donald Judd - Astor Place
Through March 05, 2018 - New York

Obdurate Space: Architecture of Donald Judd is the first exhibition to solely focus on built and unrealized architectural projects by Judd, one of the most recognized artists of the 20th Century. The exhibition reveals how drawing and building cultures impacted his art and suggests how his work has influenced contemporary architecture. Obdurate Space: Architecture of Donald Judd details five selected built projects and proposals, both published and unpublished, for architecture designed between 1984 and 1994 within a threefold thematic framework, providing a window into Judd's body of architectural work. The exhibition will include new representations of projects through both drawing and models, as well as photos of archival material, including drawings and models originally made by the curators, Claude Armstrong and Donna Cohen, while assistants to Judd. Exhibits are open 9am-8pm Monday-Friday and 11am-5pm on Saturdays. Exhibits are FREE of charge.
