The MET Orchestra - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall
June 14, 2019 - New York

Mahler's and Bruckner's deep personal emotions are masterfully expressed with gestures both large and small. Mahler's Rückert Lieder contemplate love, life, and death with delicate scoring—solo instruments are used sparingly for effect—and subtle vocal writing. Bruckner emotes on a larger scale in a superbly crafted symphony that awes with its sweeping breadth, drama, and soaring lyricism. The work energizes with its robust Scherzo and jubilant finale, but its emotional core is the second-movement Adagio, a breathtaking memorial to his idol, Wagner.

Lucette w/ Jean Rohe at The Loft - City Winery
June 14, 2019 - New York

Tickets will be $18 Day of Show On her sophomore album Deluxe Hotel Room, indie-pop artist Lucette turns her title phrase into a metaphor for experiences both highly specific and widely familiar: fleeting romance, emotional displacement, isolation, the gulf between the presumed glamour of the artist's life and the reality of getting by. Produced by Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Sturgill Simpson at The Butcher Shoppe in Nashville, Deluxe Hotel Room unfolds in endlessly contrasting layers of feeling. "A lot of joy and a lot of pain has happened for me in hotel rooms," says the Canadian artist otherwise known as Lauren Gillis. "I've stayed in hotel rooms I'd never be able to afford myself and, unfortunately, I've been put in extremely uncomfortable situations in hotel rooms. Also, hearing about a lot of the pain women in the entertainment industry have been through in hotel rooms urged me to write the title track to this album." In keeping with a refusal to self-restrain, Lucette assembled a purposely iconoclastic sonic palette for the album. "A lot of the songs are very traditional in their roots, but Sturgill and I had this idea of producing them in a more pop-leaning wa... (read more)

DJ Stashu's Polka - Luau Starring the Polka Brothers - Monty Hall

Join us for a night of joy, polka dancing, polka DJs, drinking and a live perfomance by the lively and lovely Polka Brothers! The Polka Brothers are a four man band of young polka lovers, out to spread the joy of polka, one wild party at a time. They’re a well-oiled polka machine, boasting a fearless repertoire that includes classic polka favorites, pop and rock gone polka, and unforgettable originals. They love hooking the audience in with lively polka covers of songs they already know, rocking it on a traditional polka they may not, and taking it home with a fun original they’ll be singing for the rest of the evening – at least… At first listen, the seemingly foreign tone of the music transports listeners to familiar polka homelands; Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and others… You’ve stepped out of your day and taken that trip you’ve always dreamed of. With “The Polka Brothers” guests are singing today’s homeland melodies; Aerosmith, Weezer, Lady Gaga, The Rolling Stones etc. So grab a beer, sing along and experience the meaning of the old adage “No one ever leaves a polka party without a smile on their face.” “…fun, humoresque, thought provoking, and did I say FUN?!!...
