The Monkees - Palace Theatre
March 10, 2019 - New York

Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz of The Monkees will hit the road once again in 2019, these special performances will feature songs that span the group's entire career. The shows will highlight many of Nesmith's compositions, including some that had never been performed live until this tour began. "I love being on stage with Micky," says Nesmith. "We've been collaborating for over 50 years, so it's hard to believe it's never been just the two of us. I'm excited to dust off some tunes that I haven't played for a long time too. These are going to be some fun shows." "Right from the get-go, I admired Mike's songs. When we used to get together around the campfire to sing in the early days, we were always doing his songs," says Dolenz. "We always had such a great a vocal blend; he was the one who encouraged me to write songs of my own. I've always been a big fan and now we finally get to do the Mike & Micky show that we riffed on back when we were shooting The Monkees." These new tour dates are the latest chapter in Monkee-mania, a saga that began in 1965 when four young men were cast in a television show about a struggling rock band that was inspired by the Beatles' A Hard Day's Nig...

Sunday Service Spring 2019 Season - Knockdown Center
March 10, 2019 - Maspeth

Sarah Zapata makes work with labor-intensive processes such as handweaving, rope coiling, latch hooking, and sewing by intersecting theories of gender and ethnicity with pre-colonial histories and techniques. Making work with meditative, mechanical means, her current work deals with the multiple facets of her complex identity: a Texan living in Brooklyn, a lesbian raised as an evangelical Christian, a first generation American of Latin American descent, a contemporary artist inspired by ancient civilizations, an artist challenging the history of craft as "women's work" within the realm of art. Zapata's work has been exhibited at the New Museum (NY), El Museo del Barrio (NY), Museum of Art and Design (NY), Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art (NY), Boston University (MA), LAXART (CA), Deli Gallery (NY), Arsenal Contemporary (NY), and Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center (NY). Zapata has also completed recent residencies at MASS MoCA (MA), A-Z West (CA), and Wave Hill (NY), and is the recent recipient of an NFA Project Grant from the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures. Zapata was an artist-in-residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in 2016.

Sunday Service: Sarah Zapata Presents - Knockdown Center
March 10, 2019 - Maspeth

"The here and now is a prison house. We must strive, in the face of the here and now's totalising rendering of reality, to think and feel a then and there. Some will say that all we have are the pleasures of this moment, but we must never settle for that minimal transport; we must dream and enact new and better pleasures, other ways of being in the world, and ultimately new worlds." Jose Esteban Munoz, Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity. For the opening event of the Spring 2019 season, Sarah Zapata brings together four artists who explore identity and geopolitical space, to present an imagined future through the understanding of one's own position. It is through the examination of past and place that helps transport the ideals of the future to decay current tribulations. We strive for a better society, deeper intimacy, greater understanding, and ultimately a new world.

Marcia Ball at the Loft - 3/11 - City Winery
March 11, 2019 - New York

Fifty years have passed in a flash," says Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist Marcia Ball of her long and storied career. Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world.

Her love of the road has led to years of soul-satisfying performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs.

Power of Sound Roundtable: Deep Listening and the Drone - Pioneer Works
March 12, 2019 - Brooklyn

In the past five years, sound healing has gone from fringe new-age modality to a popular form of meditation, known ubiquitously as the "sound bath," and featuring instruments such as Himalayan and crystal singing bowls, tuning forks, gong, drum, chimes, and other drone-producing instruments. In the first session of this series, we'll examine the anatomy of the sound bath, why sound therapy has garnered so much recent attention, and how sound is used as a tool for rest, mindfulness and transformation. One of the foundations of working with sound therapeutically is the practice of deep listening. By slowing down and engaging the entire listening body, we enter into sound in a way that can bring us to higher states of consciousness. Combining deep listening with the use of drone instruments, we create the potential for relaxation, where healing and reset of our nervous system can occur.

Sean Mcconnell - Mercury Lounge
March 13, 2019 - New York

Age Limit: 21 and Over As instant gratification becomes the norm and certainty is worn as armor, Sean McConnell is choosing patience and ambiguity -- especially when it comes to himself. "I think embracing the blurry lines is a sign of getting older and just having more life experience," he says. "It can be healthy to break your own boxes." Sean is home in Nashville, reflecting on the path he's taken to recording Secondhand Smoke, his 13th album. A cohesive collection of modern folk music, Secondhand Smoke asks provocative questions about how we become who we are, what and whom we love, and the growth, pain, and freedom that come with accepting that some answers might elude us forever. "The older I get, the more I find that is what it's all about -- that there is no way to answer it all," Sean says. "Being comfortable with mystery is a positive thing in all aspects of our lives. I definitely explore that in these songs." A grassroots following now hundreds of thousands deep has turned to Sean for that kind of musical exploration for almost 20 years. Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Meat Loaf, Jake Owen, Brothers Osborne, Christina Aguilera, Buddy Miller an... (read more)

Buster Poindexter at the Loft (Early Show) - 3/15 - City Winery
March 15, 2019 - New York

Today, the words "blues" and "shouting" are, alas, inextricably linked, but what about the tradition of mellow blues crooners that extended through Charles Brown, Nat King Cole and, in their more romantic moments, Joe Williams and Ray Charles? "Buster Poindexter" (nee David Johansen) first attracted attention as a glam rock pioneer (in the New York Dolls, with whom he still tours) and then as an early MTV idol (with "Hot Hot Hot"). Yet with his big, deep, resonant voice, Buster Poindexter is most impressive as a crooner and occasional belter of ballads in the classic R&B tradition. His ongoing run affirms the point that however you know him, the artist known as Buster Poindexter, complete with his one-liners and longer comic monologues (not to mention his signature pompadour), is one of the most endearing and enduring entertainers currently trodding the boards in New York.

Her heroism strikes a blow against those that would have her believe that her natural hair should be a source of humiliation, a triumph against the insidious self-loathing that attempts to seed itself in her most vulnerable moments. Ages 8+

Voice of My City: Jerome Robbins and New York - Lincoln Center
Through March 16, 2019 - New York

Jerome Robbins was an inveterate observer, seeker, and creator. In diaries, drawings, watercolors, paintings, story scenarios, poems—and, especially, in dance—he reimagined the world around him. And New York dominated that world, where he was born one-hundred years ago and where he lived his entire adult life. Ideas of New York have long inspired artists but often the city serves as a backdrop in an artwork rather than the basis for plot, theme, and meaning. Robbins put the city at the center of his artistic imaginings. From Fancy Free—his breakout hit ballet in 1944—to the musical West Side Story on stage (1957) and screen (1961) and the ballets N.Y. Export: Opus Jazz (1958) and Glass Pieces (1983), Robbins explored the joys, struggles, grooves, routines, and aspirations of New York. And in recreating the city around him on stage, Robbins found a place for himself. Voice of My City traces Robbins' life and dances alongside the history of New York, inspiring viewers to see the city as both a muse and a home.
