Through December 01, 2017 - New York

The underground hit Room for Cream is back! Reuniting with new special guests, The Dyke Division of the Two-Headed Calf stages Season 4 of Room for Cream, a live performance serial that ran for three seasons from 2008 to 2010. This subversive soap opera situates itself in the fictional Sappho, MA, a lesbian enclave and life experiment that is paradoxically both separatist and inclusive by nature of its world-building aspirations. Sappho is home to a wild, sweet, and perverse collection of queers of diverse ages, gender expressions, and politics. Thinking through a communal modality?in practice and representation?The Dyke Division stages contemporary queer discourse in the vernacular of "soap," simultaneously embracing and critiquing what constitutes popular culture in our current moment. The project aims to hold and represent the mess that ensues when a group of folks elect to consciously live against the monolith of patriarchy, sometimes in competing forms of vigilance. The first twenty-four episodes of Room for Cream were performed over three seasons at La Mama's Experimental Theater Club in downtown Manhattan; Season 4 moves to the New Museum for "Trigger: Gender as a Tool an...

Mike Dirubbo Quartet - Smalls Live
December 09, 2017 - New York City

"Something about the sound Mike DiRubbo elicits from the alto saxophone - deep, dark, immense, with a machete edge that denotes a ready-for-anything urban sensibility - immediately grabs the ear. It's a sound familiar to the cream of New York's hardcore jazz community since the mid-'90's" writes Ted Panken. Today, in an age where media-created young lions are more interested in downloads than down beats, alto saxophonist/composer/bandleader/educator Mike DiRubbo is the real deal. Ever since he arrived in New York two decades ago, DiRubbo has reigned supreme as one of the most durable and dynamic musicians of his generation. That bold statement is augmented by the aural evidence of his work with the brightest jazz stars including Tony Reedus, Larry Willis, Eddie Henderson, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Dwayne Burno, Peter Washington, Carl Allen, John Hicks and Cecil Payne, and as a solo artist, with seven critically-acclaimed CD's as a leader. On his instrument DiRubbo has it all: from Benny Carter's mastery of melody and Johnny Hodges' ballad mellow tones to Charlie Parker's light-speed fluency. But what truly sets DiRubbo apart from the rest was his apprenticeship under... (read more)

Find sardonic humor, heart-on-the-sleeve emotions, and soaring melodies in a night of Russian chamber music. Shostakovich was just 17 when he composed his rarely performed Piano Trio No. 1.

There's abundant melody in Prokofiev's Violin Sonata No. 2, as well as wit and energy. Rachmaninoff's Trio élégiaque No. 2 memorializes Tchaikovsky, an advocate for the young composer. It includes an extrovert piano part and a set of second-movement variations, meant as a touching tribute to Tchaikovsky's only piano trio.

At this eminently practical event, taught by consultants Barbara Allen, Anne Fielding, and Meryl Nietsch-Cooperman, women will learn what can make married life honestly kind?and have a woman feel she is expressing her own deepest self: ?The purpose of marriage is to like the world,? explained Eli Siegel, founder of Aesthetic Realism. ?The reason happiness in marriage is such a rare item is that people have tried to love in a way that would mean less of a like for the world?in fact, a contempt for it.? There?s going to be enlivening, insightful discussion of these important sentences by Mr. Siegel, from his lecture Mind and Kindness: "One way the large problem can be put is this: how to be kind without limit and at the same time take care of oneself without limit.

Bill Frisell / Thomas Morgan Duo - Jazz Standard
December 09, 2017 - New York

n his New York Times review of Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan's Small Town (5.19.2017), Giovanni Russonello called the former "a giant of improvised music, whose smoldering, tube?amplified guitar sound never loses its air of positivist contemplation." As for bassist Morgan, some 30 years Frisell's junior, "his warm and serious bass tone can assimilate itself into almost any band, becoming the music's sturdy architecture without compromising his own blunt power." In 2005, Bill Frisell's Unspeakable won the GRAMMY Award in the category of Best Contemporary Jazz Album; recorded live in New York, Small Town is his first album for ECM Records as a leader/co?leader since Lookout For Hope in 1988. "It's in the more naked, completely vulnerable environs of the duo?where the need for musical trust is, perhaps, at its most crucial?that the profound chemistry shared by these two thoroughly synchronized players becomes even clearer."

Megg Farrell + Friends - Hill Country
December 09, 2017 - NY

Born in Manhattan, raised in New Jersey, matured in Paris, Asheville, and Brooklyn, Megg Farrell's music encapsulates all of her travels and experiences into one beautifully eclectic blend of honest simplicity and musical sophistication. When she was 16, she began singing blues music her father taught her and her own original tunes the East Village. At 18, she left New York for North Carolina and worked along the river learning folk traditions of the South. A few years later she moved to Paris to study jazz. Her music retained the stomp of the Southern influence and the blues of her childhood influences but added a new level of vocal and harmonic complexity. She now lives in Brooklyn where she has been professionally singing in the jazz world for four years. Her newest concoction Megg Farrell & Friends has brought her full circle back into her original music. She performs with musicians from the jazz word performing country numbers, blues, and her original folk. In 2016 she released her first full length album Fear Nothing which sprung this group into action. Fear Nothing is a mix of songs she has written throughout these years of growth, travel, romance, sorrow, and unabashed joie... (read more)

The Sweeplings - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
December 09, 2017 - New York

The Sweeplings make music that settles comfortably into the canon of classic American acoustic music, but their origin story couldn't be more modern. Whitney Dean and Cami Bradley have been writing together for just over a year but the timelessness of their music belies the youth of their collaboration. Haunting yet hopeful, together Dean and Bradley create luring melodies and lyrics that touch on the universal and the fleeting; those shared experiences that while they're happening might seem trivial, but go on to become waypoints in the memory of a life well lived. It might be the sudden realization that, when it comes to love, forever isn't all that long. We're are all on the same ride to the undeniable end, yet with someone by our side we just might be able to go gently into that good night. Sonically, they approach each song as if writing for the screen. A swirl of melodies and harmonies bring you along on their journey, the sounds they craft at once giving rise to a myriad of mental imagery. "We hope that listening to our record is, in a way, akin to watching a great film. We want to provide our listeners with an experience that is felt, not just heard" says Bradley. "We... (read more)

Cited by Oprah aMagazine as "one of our favorite creative thinkers..." Dion's solo improv has been described as: "Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn's mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you're flying." ? Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life "Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. "Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it's all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a... (read more)

Laughing Buddha Comedy w/ Jeff Lawrence, and More! - The Stand
December 09, 2017 - New York

Keith Robinson is the quintessential comedian's comedian, admired by his fellow artists ? his great art of inherently subverting his audience, shaking them out of their cozy assumptions to fresh perspectives sustains his comedic prominence. His commanding stage presence has gained him appearances on MTV, VH1, HBO's Def Comedy Jam, TBS's family comedy series Are We There Yet, The Chelsea Lately Show on E! and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Many talented comedians can make you laugh but it's difficult to find a comedian who rises to a level of middle brow brilliance finding comic expression in cultural/racial disparities, his mischievous past, and political absurdities, which leads to a further probing deep beneath Keith Robinson's hardened pseudo-street exterior to expose his geeky indisputable-intellectual interior. It is within the comedic improvisation of standup where his strident honesty and confrontational style expose the conspicuously concealed obvious ? spilling to observations that masterfully make him a skillful teller-of-tales. In his teens, Keith began cultivating his wit with his "back of the bus funny," subsequently working the comedy circuit in his hometown Phi... (read more)

Marilyn Maye - Iridium
Through December 09, 2017 - NY

Marilyn Maye has been described as a singer, an entertainer, and sometimes an actress and comedian, but the word that most of her fans would use is "phenomenon." She is an unstoppable ball of energy, equal parts of Ella Fitzgerald and Ethel Merman, one that would be remarkable at any age, but even more so for a woman gearing up for her 90th birthday in April and who has been entertaining professionally for at least 80 of those years. At 89, Maye's raw firepower is astonishing, but we shouldn't let that overshadow the other attributes of her music, namely her amazing subtlety, her gift for underplaying a lyric, and her capacity for narrative. She is one of the few artists of any generation who is a great jazz singer with a remarkable sense of swing and concurrently a full-on theatrical singer with an equally great sense of drama and storytelling. Not to mention humor; she can deliver a punch-line like no one else and, with a single wink of her eyes of the expression on her face, make an entire audience laugh so hard that they can barely breathe. For most of the 1940's and 1950's she sang at nightclubs in Kansas City, where she learned her craft: how to swing, how to belt the b... (read more)

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson - Grey Art Gallery, NYU
Through December 09, 2017 - New York

Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson explores how Alfred Barr, the Museum of Modern Art?s (MoMA) first director, and Philip Johnson, the curator of architecture, introduced modern design to North America. The exhibition?s story begins when Barr and Johnson traveled to Europe in the late 1920s and early 1930s and discovered that leading European architects?such as Le Corbusier, J. J. P. Oud, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe?were rejecting ornament in favor of a purity of form. Barr and Johnson dubbed this new architectural language ?International Style.? Featuring more than 100 objects?including furniture, photographs, and industrial and graphic design?the exhibition traces the development of modern design from its origins at Bauhaus to Barr and Johnson?s radical experiments in their homes in New York City to MoMA?s nationally influential exhibition in the 1930s and beyond.

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.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - Music Hall of Williamsburg
December 10, 2017 - Brooklyn

Ted Leo is one of the finest songwriters of our generation, even if it's not entirely clear what generation that is. Starting in New York Hardcore with Citizen's Arrest, making the '90s safe for power-pop and Weller-esque hair with Chisel, then singing our turbulent lives like we were smarter than we were with The Pharmacists, and most recently providing equal parts sweetness and solace with Aimee Mann as The Both, Ted never let us down. And now, seven years after The Brutalist Bricks, he has a new solo album. And it's wonderful. The songs on The Hanged Man, recorded at a home-studio-in-transition in Wakefield, RI, with Ted playing almost all the instruments, are some of the finest and most finely wrought of Ted Leo's career. Ted describes the time working on the album as one of "personal desolation that felt fallow but was actually very fertile" and, indeed, lyrically, The Hanged Man is suffused with hope of sorts but crushingly heavy. The concerns addressed, whether personal trauma or the national disaster we're all currently existing in, matched with the range and vitality of the songcraft is inspiring, even uplifting. The Hanged Man offers the sharp bursts of skinny tie p... (read more)

The Jesus Lizard - Irving Plaza
December 10, 2017 - New york

Accessible accommodations should purchase a General Admission ticket and will be taken care of at the venue day of event. The Jesus Lizard formed in late 80's Austin, TX after David Yow (vox) and David Wm. Sims' (bass) previous band Scratch Acid broke up. They started the Jesus Lizard with Duane Denison (guitar) and a drum machine and recorded their debut EP Pure with Steve Albini in 1989. A move to Chicago prompted the firing of the drum machine in favor of Mac McNeilly (drums) and in 1990 the band recorded their first full-length, Head, for Touch and Go. While the labels "seminal" and "legendary" are often applied too easily, they both accurately describe the Jesus Lizard. They released five more remarkable LPs before disbanding in 1999, the last being 1998's Blue.

Figaro X Figaro - Bare Opera
December 10, 2017 - Brooklyn

This never-before-seen adaptation by director Cecilia Ligorio and resident conductor Sesto Quatrini cleverly weaves Rossini's The Barber of Seville into Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro as a series of flashbacks. Through the music of Rossini we glimpse the early lives of the characters from Beaumarchais' famous trilogy, which gives greater perspective on the matured characters in Mozart's story. With all the most memorable operatic moments intact, this "marriage" of two of the most famous Italian operas clocks in at a fast two hours, with some of opera's rising stars at the storytelling healm.

The Ai Murakami Trio Feat. Sacha Perry - Smalls Live
December 10, 2017 - New York City

Jazz drummer Ai Murakami was born in Japan, and has been fascinated by rhythm ever since she played taiko (Japanese drums) at the age of four. When she heard Thelonious Monk's "Monk's Dream" for the first time, she fell in love with his music immediately and immersed herself in jazz. She started her professional career while at Waseda University, and moved to New York city in 1998. Soon after her arriving, she found her musical home, Smalls Jazz Club, located in Greenwich Village, and quickly met like-minded musicians. Since then, she has dedicated herself to pursuing her musical passion. Her debut album Conception, released from Gut String Records in November 2014, features Zaid Nasser, Tardo Hammer and Hassan Shakur and has received outstanding reviews from the jazz critics. "Murakami is crisp and selective, but her breaks insert force into all the right places. She is the first reason Conception swings like crazy." "Her interpretations prove once again two things about bebop: Its complex energy is unique in its capacity to communicate joy, and its forms are inexhaustible in their openness to individual expression." Tom Conrad, Stereophile Magazine "The tw... (read more)

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

Sound in Space - New York Presbyterian Church
December 10, 2017 - Long Island City

Architecture, Art Works and Photography Exhibition by Adrian Subagyo and Joey Giampietro, Architects. -Location: New York Presbyterian Church 43-23 37th Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101 -Time: 4-7:30pm -Free Admission Space in Sound is an exhibition that critically engages with the relationship between objects and the space in which they inhabit while questioning many of our preconceived notions concerning sound and space. Humans primarily perceive sound empirically, as sonic waves vibrate through particles in the open air and reach our ears, we are given an abundance of information both qualitative and quantitative about our surrounding context. Sound also propagates equally through material via physical vibrations. Our perceptive systems are not trained to detect sound materially and as a result our engagement with sound is severely biased. Objects engage with their sonic environment through feeling. It is in this feeling of sound that vibrations are physically transferred from material to material or object to object, all of which are spaces. Access into this world, and that of a flat ontology, can be achieved through the use of contact microphones and amplificati... (read more)

Aquarium - 45 Years Anniversary Tour - Beacon Theater
December 10, 2017 - New York

BG. B for Boris. G for Grebenshikov. In Russia and Ukraine, in Belarus and Latvia, as well as in many other former Soviet Union countries, these initials immediately identify the man who, at 62, has often been considered as the greatest living Russian poet and singer and is a real cult hero there. Bilingual mathematician Boris Grebenshikov has also been known in the West since 1986, when his band Aquarium was featured on "Red Wave," the first compilation of rock music from St Petersburg released by a U.S. record label. Three years later, MTV audiences could see him on video clips, singing in English, and he was likened to a "Russian Bob Dylan, David Bowie or Marc Bolan" depending on the critics. Every Western journalist was trying to find an equivalent to the multiform talent of Boris, who had signed with CBS/Columbia. Boris Grebenshikov was not the first Soviet citizen seduced by rock and roll even though this music style, which communist ideologists considered as a sort of bourgeois perversion, was not to be found in record shops. He was not the first one singing rock in Russian or wearing long hair and faded jeans. But he was the first to fully pass on the whole Western sp... (read more)

Bill Frisell / Thomas Morgan Duo - Jazz Standard
December 10, 2017 - New York

In his New York Times review of Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan's Small Town (5.19.2017), Giovanni Russonello called the former "a giant of improvised music, whose smoldering, tube?amplified guitar sound never loses its air of positivist contemplation." As for bassist Morgan, some 30 years Frisell's junior, "his warm and serious bass tone can assimilate itself into almost any band, becoming the music's sturdy architecture without compromising his own blunt power." In 2005, Bill Frisell's Unspeakable won the GRAMMY Award in the category of Best Contemporary Jazz Album; recorded live in New York, Small Town is his first album for ECM Records as a leader/co?leader since Lookout For Hope in 1988. "It's in the more naked, completely vulnerable environs of the duo?where the need for musical trust is, perhaps, at its most crucial?that the profound chemistry shared by these two thoroughly synchronized players becomes even clearer."

Philippe Lemm Trio, Malnoia - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
December 10, 2017 - New York

"The Philippe Lemm Trio is continually proving to be one of the most exciting and electrifying jazz trio's around today. Led at the helm by drummer Philippe Lemm, the group met in New York in 2011, and after one session together, realized that their undeniable chemistry was one that needed to be taken and shared with the world. Comprised of three musicians with exceptional command of their instruments, the group's repertoire draws heavily from re-imaginations of jazz standards in a way that both defies genre and corresponds to any modern jazz fan. The group uses their trust and understanding of one another's musical tendencies to create passionate musical soundscapes, which range from traditional jazz to the progressive rock/classical-influenced music. Hearing the trio is a special and unforgettable experience, and you will be captivated after listening to one piece." Their TV appearance on the TV-show Vrije Geluiden led to sold out concerts throughout The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany on the first half of their European CD release tour. The trio has performed on stages like: North Sea Jazz Festival, Pori Jazz Festival, Bimhuis (Amsterdam), Getxo Festival (Bilbao), ... (read more)

Elsa Nilsson - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
December 10, 2017 - New York

"Swedish flutist Elsa Nilsson and her quartet will perform traditional Swedish songs often sung on December 13th to celebrate Lucia. This uniquely swedish holiday celebrates the return of light during the darkest time of the year. You can expect some South African, Jamaican, Brazilian and Balkan influences and gingerbread cookies for everyone! Elsa Nilsson's music is profoundly playful and diversely influenced. She believes that the true beauty of music is its capacity to transcend cultural boundaries. She considers all folk music (including jazz) to have a common thread, and that by weaving those threads together, a deeper, more complete understanding among cultures can be reached. This philosophy is evident in her compositional style, subtly blending cross-cultural elements to create a sound that is distinctly her own. Each member of the band brings his or her own flavor to the music. With Nilsson leading on flute, this band also features Jeff McLaughlin on Guitar, Alex Minier on Bass, and Cody Rahn on Drums and Percussion.

Sza+Smino, Ravyn Lenae - Brooklyn Steel
December 10, 2017 - New York

SZA envelopes your soul at first listen. Coveting a special innocence about her, the Maplewood native laces her music with soul-quenching traces of seductive allure. It's truly the subtleties that make a difference though; the floral imagery, the small touches on her production, her concise yet intense songwriting. It all molds together to form this beautiful package. "I was raised on a lot of John Coltrane, Satchmo, Miles Davis, Billy Holiday, and Björk with an adult obsession of all things Wu-Tang," says SZA. " The one thing I've always admired is their ability to paint scenes with their sounds. When I write I usually let the beat saturate my mood and head space; that determines every scene and set design for any song, the rest is all secondary." The songstress was first noticed sharing stages with the likes of Canadian artist Colin Munroe, Asher Roth, and multiple Star Trak artists including Christian Rich. Since then SZA has released a variety of soulful tidbits, ranging from features on some of your favorite artists tracks (to be released), to songwriting and solo cuts. Her debut EP See.SZA.Run is out now.

A John Waters Christmas - City Winery
December 10, 2017 - New York

Like a damaged St. Nick for the Christmas corrupted, John Waters ? legendary filmmaker ("Female Trouble", "Hairspray", "Serial Mom"), raconteur and author of bestselling books, Carsick, Role Models and Make Trouble ? hitchhikes into town with a bag full of sticks and stones for the devoted and the damned, spreading Yuletide profanity and perverted piety with his critically acclaimed one-man show, "A John Waters Christmas". This rapid-fire "trigger warning" for holiday traditionalists asks the questions, "Is Prancer the only gay reindeer?", "Is it wrong to steal purses from cars in graveyard parking lots on Christmas Eve while mourners leave flowers?", "Has Santa ever been nude?", and, most importantly, "Should you disrupt living crèche celebrations this year in the name of political action?" Miracles really do happen at Yuletide, even if they're false, and Waters prays for a Gaspar Noé Christmas film, and a new sex club that encourages gay men and lesbians to have sex with each other for the very first time. Delving into his love for the annual December warning list of "Unsafe Toys to Give Your Child" and his hatred for email Christmas cards, The Easter Bunny, and any kind of ho... (read more)

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...

Popa Chubby: Tribute to Rolling Stones - Iridium
December 10, 2017 - NY

Popa Chubby, born Ted Horowitz, has been hard rocking the blues in his fierce and soulful way for more than 25 years. Over the course of a career that dates back to 1994, he has been a force of to be reckoned with on the guitar, and his tempestuous, soulful playing has never been more powerful. An imposing figure with a shaven head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a performance style he describes as "the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson," Popa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genre's most popular figures. His career has always been about moving forward and carving a place for himself in the imposing terrain of the music business, overcoming odds to continue growing and maturing as a creative force. He has built a constantly increasing base of fans across the world, where in many territories he is a star. A native New Yorker, Horowitz's first gigs were in the NYC punk scene as a guitarist for what he reflects was a "crazy Japanese special effects performance artist in a kimono called Screaming Mad George who had a horror-movie inspired show." Right from the start he was immersed in rock 'n' roll as theat... (read more)

A MY NAME IS... by Stefanie Nelson Dancegroup - TheaterLab
Through December 10, 2017 - New York

Choreographer Stefanie Nelson presents the NYC premiere of her work A MY NAME IS?, an exploration of memory and forgetting inspired by the choreographer?s personal encounter with a family member?s dementia. Employing a cast of four dancers and a multidisciplinary team of international collaborators, the work focuses on the phenomenon of gravity (both physical and metaphoric) as well as repetition and disappearance. Nelson builds a gestural vocabulary for the piece the same way as one?s language skills develop and disintegrate over time and uses it to reflect upon memory and forgetting, aging and loss. The special advisor for the project is David Shenk, a bestselling author of The Forgetting: Alzheimer's: Portrait of an Epidemic. Developed in residency in Italy, the work features stop-motion video by Elisa D'Amico (Italy), original music by composers Sahand Rahbar (Iran/Canada) and Jonah Kreitner (US), with set and light design by Solomon Weisbard (US).

Through December 10, 2017 - New York

Swimming pools, twinkly lights, a well-stocked Tiki Bar and beach balls welcome the audience to this raucous and utterly zany beach party adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance. The entire audience joins the cast on the stage-beach, immersed in the action alongside sappy pirates, dewy-eyed damsels, bumbling bobbies and one very stuffy Major General. It is a spunky model of a (post)modern major musical. The Hypocrites, founded in 1997 by Artistic Director Sean Graney, is one of Chicago's premier off-Loop theater companies, specializing in mounting bold productions that challenge preconceptions and redefine the role of the audience. The company has a reputation for creating exciting, surprising, and deeply engaging theater as it re-interprets classics and tackles ambitious new works.

Path to Citizenship - New York Historical Society
Through December 10, 2017 - New York

On view in the Patrica D. Klingenstein Library, New-York Historical explores what it means to be an American citizen through documents and manuscripts from its collection, as part of the CitizenshipProject. The U.S. Constitution, drafted in 1787, established a new nation. It also introduced national citizenship, the eligibility for which would be determined by Congress. The Naturalization Act of 1790 offered citizenship to "free white persons" who had resided in the country for at least two years and could prove they were of good character. Naturalization is the process through which someone becomes a citizen. Although eligibility for U.S. Citizenship has changed repeatedly since 1790, three aspects of naturalization have remained the same: the act of petitioning or applying for citizenship, taking an oath of allegiance to the United States, and receiving a document that certifies citizenship. Learn more about the documents on view. This exhibit was curated by Nina Nazionale, director of library operations and curator of printed collections.

María de Echevarría: Fields of Light and Color - Saint Peter's Church
Through December 10, 2017 - New York

Nature, once again, inspired the Argentinian painter María de Echevarría to create a set of abstract and semi-abstract landscapes, of which more than 20 are presented in this exhibit. "In all these paintings my aim is to convey my emotional response and artistic vision to the magnificent light and colors observed in fields, skies and water from dawn to sunset." María started painting in 1991. Since then, her art education has been the never-ending process that takes place mainly during the actual act of painting. There is also the study and direct observation of works by masters like Georgia O'Keeffe and Mark Rothko. She took classes at The Art Student League of New York and studied under the Peruvian painter Reynaldo Bisetti in New York. De Echevarría has shown her work extensively in and out of New York. Examples in New York are the one-artist exhibits at the United Nations Headquarters, the Living Room Gallery of Saint Peter's Church and the Consulate of Argentina. Galleries in SoHo and Chelsea have presented her work in individual and group shows as well.

Illyria - The Public Theater
Through December 10, 2017 - New York

The New York Times has called Tony Award-winning playwright and director Richard Nelson's plays "a triumph of civic theater." This season, the writer-director of the acclaimed Apple Family Plays and last season's The Gabriels returns to 425 Lafayette to reveal a forgotten chapter of The Public Theater's own history. It is 1958, and New York City is in the midst of a major building boom; a four-lane highway is planned for the heart of Washington Square; Carnegie Hall is designated for demolition; entire neighborhoods on the West Side are leveled to make room for a new "palace of art." And a young Joe Papp and his colleagues face betrayals, self-inflicted wounds, and anger from the city's powerful elite as they continue their free Shakespeare productions in Central Park. From the creator of the most celebrated family plays of the last decade comes a drama about a different kind of family ? one held together by the simple and incredibly complicated belief that the theater, and the city, belong to all of us.

They may have missed a year here and there for one reason or another, but it became a beloved holiday tradition for the band?waiting til the last minute, stealing an end of the year moment to gather and do their favorite thing, making music, and sending it out to the cosmos with peace and goodwill for all.

Talks Progress Administration: Within Reason - Caveat
December 11, 2017 - New York

With Neer Asherie Directed by Sarah Hughes The Talks Progress Administration is a mad science experiment on stage - we're pairing academic lecturers with theater directors to see what they'll make together. The Talks Progress Administration (TPA) combines intellectual entertainment, creative discourse, and interactive storytelling like you've never seen before. What would happen if Bill Nye got cast in Sleep No More, if Jane Goodall sat down for tea with Brecht, or if Stephen Hawking wrote a new Hamilton-inspired rock opera? We don't know, but we sure as hell can't wait to find out. TPA kicks off with Within Reason, with Neer Asherie and directed by Sarah Hughes. A physics professor must give a public lecture to get tenure. The safe approach is a boring, technical presentation, but he dreams of something different. Bye-bye tenure!

As a drummer, Ari Hoenig's success has been unprecedented. Growing up in Philadelphia, his parent's influence exposed Ari to a variety of alternative musical experiences.

J.Antonette - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
December 11, 2017 - New York City

After finding herself as a background singer for Grammy Award winning artist Melissa Etheridge, and Jerry Wonda's Platinum Sound Band, this New York native honed her craft as a playful-yet-passionate multi-genre singer-songwriter. Encompassing elements of pop, rock, urban infusion and hints of her upstate Americana roots, her 2016 debut album "Lollipops & Daggers" (featured on Kiss FM & iHeart Radio) arrived followed by sold out shows in NYC. With her new single "Hello, Goodbye," set to drop this November, this former pop singer is excited to showcase a whole new country sound in her New York meets Nashville styled upcoming EP, "Paper Trail".

In addition, she continues to tour with celebrity acts and enjoys composing music for TV, film and artists.

On Henry David Thoreau with Laura Dassow Walls - 92nd Street Y
December 11, 2017 - New York

The inner lives of great people are often more mysterious and fascinating than their public lives. Dr. Gail Saltz, the author, psychoanalyst and contributor to the Today show, invites experts and brings her own expertise to bear as she examines the psychology of people who have shaped history. "Walden. Yesterday I came here to live." That entry from the journal of Henry David Thoreau, and the intellectual journey it began, would by themselves be enough to place Thoreau in the American pantheon. His attempt to "live deliberately" in a small woods at the edge of his hometown of Concord has been a touchstone for individualists and seekers since the publication of Walden in 1854. But there was much more to Thoreau than his brief experiment in living at Walden Pond. A member of the vibrant intellectual circle centered on his neighbor Ralph Waldo Emerson, he was also an ardent naturalist, a manual laborer and inventor, a radical political activist, and more. Laura Dassow Walls talks with Dr. Saltz about Thoreau's quixotic, mischievous and many-sided nature. From the young man shattered by the sudden death of his brother to his death in 1862, at only forty-four years of age, meet th... (read more)

Today, controversies on public campuses often pit champions of freedom of expression against champions of racial justice?but what is the history behind this tension?

December 11, 2017 - New York

Featuring the Harlem Quartet The F-major Quartet was Beethoven's last completed work, finished only five months before his death.

Through December 11, 2017 - New York,

Following its critically-acclaimed and sold-out run last season, the uplifting and richly funny TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS returns to The Public's larger Newman Theater with Academy Award-nominee Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) reprising the role of Sugar. Based on the best-selling book by author Cheryl Strayed (Wild), the play TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS was praised by The New York Times as "an ideal catharsis" and "handkerchief-soaking meditation on pain, loss, hope & forgiveness." Thousands of people wrote letters asking for advice from an anonymous online columnist named Sugar, who drew from her own life experiences to answer in a candid, often brutally honest exchange. It was later revealed that Sugar was Cheryl Strayed. Vardalos adapts the book, weaving together the real letters to explore the monstrous beauty, unfathomable dark and glimmering light which are at the heart of being human.

Ryan Kinder - Mercury Lounge
December 12, 2017 - New York

When Ryan Kinder played the world-famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for the first time, he turned that Grand Ole Opry performance into a special moment. Kinder set aside his guitar, walked away from the microphone and moved to the edge of the stage ? a stage that's hosted such signpost acts as Johnny Cash, Don Henley and Dolly Parton ? to deliver an impassioned version of his gospel-tinged ballad "Still Believe In Crazy Love." With the instruments out of the picture, Kinder put the focus solely on his voice, wringing a complex set of musical influences and a ton of emotion out of a one-of-a-kind set of pipes. Not every artist could ? or should ? take that kind of a risk at such a sacred venue, but for Kinder, it was an ideal showcase. There's a singular sound to his voice, one that's enriched with country, soul, pop, rock and gospel. And Kinder expresses those myriad influences with a unique texture, a way of relating his words with a ferocity and conviction that sounds like no one else. It's the kind of individuality that's found in many of popular music's most identifiable singers ? Elton John, Garth Brooks or Reba McEntire ? and he backs it with a from-the-gut power....

Simo - Mercury Lounge
December 12, 2017 - New York

As if creeping from the Southern swamps and mist-soaked cotton fields, SIMO's "Stranger Blues" is the perfect table-setter for the Nashville power trio's vibrant new LP, Let Love Show the Way. The song is a blueprint for reinvigorating the fusion of jazz improvisation, downhome blues and classic R&B, as well as these genres' psychedelic Brit Invasion and countrified Southern-rock manifestations. The rest of the record follows suit, a souped-up vehicle transporting the band on a deeply satisfying, off-the-cuff musical journey. Let Love Show the Way finds SIMO not just reveling in the hallowed space's unique mojo and history, but taking it to a fresh and inspired place. The first album ever recorded at Macon, Ga.'s Big House and was cut entirely live in full, unbroken takes?vocals and solos included?the result is primal, sweltering and immediate. "We live and die by the take," says singer-guitarist JD Simo. "We don't edit, and if there are overdubs, they're minimal. I want it to be unaffected and pure." As a musical unit, Simo, his longtime drummer Adam Abrashoff and bassist Elad Shapiro have an undeniable chemistry, taken to even greater heights with JD playing Duane Allman's ... (read more)

Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors. 1850, and Europe's most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

When David Became Goliath: the Legacy of the Six Day War - 92Y
December 12, 2017 - Upper East Side

How has Judaism changed in the fifty years since the Six Day War? How have we changed? As we learn from our past and look towards our future, how do we use power justly to make it a catalyst for our values? For two millennia, the Jewish people were powerless; in 1967, Israel took ownership of the sovereignty that was granted in 1948. The enormity of the victory of the Six Day War gave Israel access to power in a way that continues to transform Jewish life half a century later. Rabbi Donniel Hartman speaks on the legacy of this historic event, followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein.

For more details, visit https://truonline.org/events/understanding-off-broadway/. Many consider the musical the great American art form and a key contribution to our country's culture.

We will look at the rich environments for incubating new works that exist throughout our country, including regional theaters and colleges and universities. Not every show is destined for New York, though many follow a circuitous path that may ultimately lead there. Some shows go directly to licensing, others develop success without ever having a New York production. Is there something to be gained from developing new works beyond the commercial pressure of Broadway? Where do innovative and unconventional works come from? What are some of the other viable markets worth pursuing for new works? Are there current trends? How do au... (read more)

Frank Sinatra Sings Richard Rodgers - 92nd Street Y
December 12, 2017 - New York

Will Friedwald, feature writer for The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair and the author of nine books on popular music, presents curated video clips from his extensive vintage collection to illustrate the great artistry of the performers and composers of the American Songbook. The presentations will be driven both by a profundity of rare and fascinating video footage, nearly all of which hasn't been seen publicly in decades (not available on home video or YouTube) and his own incisive commentary. In honor of the 102nd birthday of the Chairman of the Board, we focus on Sinatra's 50-year-relationship with Richard Rodgers who, in both of his key collaborations wrote many of Sinatra's most familiar classic songs. From the wit and warmth of Rodgers & Hart classics, like "My Funny Valentine" and "The Lady is a Tramp," to the deep universal truths of Rodgers and Hammerstein, like "Soliloquy" (from Carousel) and "I Have Dreamed." We leave no doubt that Sinatra was the number one interpreter of Rodgers.

Pigeons and Planes praises Hayley's music as "devastatingly beautiful" and Okayplayer applauds her songwriting for being "as distinctive as it is infectious." "Wire & Rope" will be released in early 2018.

The Hell Yeah Babies, Dave Chiappetta and Steadfast Charlie - Arlene's Grocery
December 12, 2017 - New York

Every band needs a distinctive voice; The Hell Yeah Babies have three. Guitarists Mike Pfeiffer and Sam Paxton and bassist Dylan Roth swap lead vocals, stack harmonies, and weave countermelodies with a joyful synergy that evokes One Direction as much as it does The Beatles. Together with drummer Julian Ames, they craft pop songs with instantly memorable hooks but also layers of musical intrigue?the kind of songs that if you want to sing along (and you will), you'll have a half-dozen parts to choose from. If Elvis Costello, Rivers Cuomo, and Jack Antonoff started a boy band, it'd sound like The Hell Yeah Babies.

Brendan Hines - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
December 12, 2017 - New York

Singer/Songwriter and actor Brendan Hines (The Tick, Suits, Scandal, Lie To Me) pens post-love songs, insult ballads, and clever couplets catchy enough to be mistaken for sweet. His wry commentaries and overheard stories of heartbreak, isolation, excess, and humor are often compared to John Prine and Elvis Costello. The son of an erstwhile priest and nun turned philosophy professors, Brendan was raised in Baltimore, moved to New York and then Los Angeles; the pitch and roll of these three cities feature prominently in his lyrics. Hines' first album, Good for You Know Who, was ten tracks of earnest, ear-wormy, alt-folk pith and vinegar. In 2012 he toured the U.S. with folk duo The Milk Carton Kids and released his second album, Small Mistakes. It marked the debut of a quieter, more contemplative side to Hines' songs, with spare and haunting production by singer/songwriter David Poe and composer/producer Al Sgro. In the immediate aftermath of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, under the influence of a supermoon in the Joshua Tree desert, Hines and producers David Poe & Al Sgro assembled three other musicians and recorded the new album QUALMS. Angry, lyrically urgent and more vulner... (read more)

There's a blurred line between naiveté and bravery mixed with a healthydose of ego, and I've always straddled it.

Perfume Genius - Music Hall of Williamsburg
December 12, 2017 - Brooklyn

This is an American rock 'n' roll album by big American pop star Perfume Genius. WHOM Known early as a poster-wraith for notorious, joyous, tortured and free boys, girls and their fellow travelers, the first two albums by Perfume Genius consisted largely of exquisite and cruelly abbreviated songs seemingly sung in the dark at a piano with all the silences left in. The previously most recent album, 2014's Too Bright, stepped out saucily onto a bigger stage, expressing, with the production help of Adrian Utley, emotions arranged all along the slippery continuum from rage to irony to love. Now here we have seized the vocabulary of the full expression of all music.

Ear Yoga: Think With Your Ears - Rubin Museum
December 13, 2017 - New York

Often dampened due to pressures of the modern urban soundscape, our capacity to truly listen and absorb the everyday can be minimized or ignored. In Ear Yoga, re-tune your ears to the primal sense of acute hearing. Sound Artist Bruce Odland has spent his career highlighting the complex and vibrant sonic landscapes that make up our world. In this intimate workshop, Odland will facilitate a series of exercises designed to stimulate the "hunter-gatherer" precision of hearing. Participants will be encouraged to stretch underused auditory muscles, expand their reach and potential, and "think with their ears." A pioneer in sound installations, Bruce Odland is an artist who thinks with his ears. His first public sound installation, SUN SONG, broadcasted a four-channel cloud of reverberant sound over an outdoor festival in Denver from the Clock Tower of East High in 1977. Since then he has discovered resonance and beauty in both the fractal music of nature and the transformation of vast industrial soundscapes of cities into harmonic music.

Lunchtime Lecture Series 'An Alternate Route to Modernism in Italian and Spanish Art, 1850-1920' With Marcus Burke - The Art Students League
December 13, 2017 - New York

Standard histories of modern art from 1850 to 1920 rightly emphasize the role of Paris as the epicenter of artistic developments, but as Robert Rosenblum and others have demonstrated, there were other routes to the art of the twentieth century. Rosenblum described a northern route to Modernism. This lecture looks at developments in Italy and eastern Spain, from the work of the Italian Macchiaioli group in the 1850s through developments particularly in Valencia. The lecture will also consider the influence of this alternate route to modern art on Joaquín Sorolla. Marcus Burke is Senior Curator at the Hispanic Society of Americ.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
December 13, 2017 - Manhattan

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

He never steps on the vocals, and he leaves plenty of room for everyone else to do their thing, but when it's time to solo, Scott delivers, boy." -Gregg Allman

Roots NYC Presents Mawu 10-Year Anniversary| Louie Vega & Kevin Hedge - Cielo
December 13, 2017 - New York

A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. What distinguishes the Grammy winner and 4-time nominee as one of the best living house music deejays is his ability to evolve alongside the times, distill the current musical landscape through his unique taste and put his own timeless spin on it. "Little" Louie Vega, as he is sometimes affectionately known, was born in the Bronx into a musically gifted family (his father, a jazz saxophonist, and his uncle, Salsa King Héctor Lavoe). The "Little" moniker is ironic, given the fact that by the 80s he was deejaying at clubs he wasn't even old enough to attend, holding residencies at Studio 54, Devil's Nest, Hearthrob, Roseland, and the Palladium. Soon Vega was producing his own remixes, which included Information Society's "Running", Noel's "Silent Morning" and Debbie Gibson's "Only in my Dreams". Then in 1991 he joined Atlantic Records?and hit th... (read more)

Who Authored the Bible? the Historical Perspective - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
December 13, 2017 - New York

When we're studying the Bible, one question that invariably arises is who wrote the Five Books and how were they compiled? Rabbinic commentators affirm that Moses was the author and explain the many repetitions, inconsistencies and contradictions with midrash (interpretive explanations). Modern scholars respond with a critical, historical reading of the text, identifying four primary sources or author schools?E, J, P and D. The composition, today's scholars posit, was gradual, with various segments being written in response to historical circumstances and changing theological world views. In this class, we will unravel and examine these strands with a view toward understanding how a critical reading?one that recognizes the multiplicity of voices inherent in the text's construction?enriches our insight into the Bible's profound and compelling messages, without undermining its authority or divinity.

Myopia: a Memoir - Center for Jewish History
December 13, 2017 - New York

Phyllis Skoy's first novel, What Survives, takes place in Turkey. Mark Aronson is an American Jew who is a professor of art history in Istanbul. He meets the protagonist of the novel, Adalet, and a relationship grows between them. Adalet is a young Turkish Muslim.

At this time, Istanbul is a flourishing international city with inhabitants from all over the world. What Survives is one of a three-part series. This book takes place in the recent present. The book Ms. Skoy is currently writing focuses on the coming of the Republic of Turkey and the character of Fatma, from the first book.

Perfume Genius - Music Hall of Williamsburg
December 13, 2017 - Brooklyn

This is an American rock 'n' roll album by big American pop star Perfume Genius. WHOM Known early as a poster-wraith for notorious, joyous, tortured and free boys, girls and their fellow travelers, the first two albums by Perfume Genius consisted largely of exquisite and cruelly abbreviated songs seemingly sung in the dark at a piano with all the silences left in. The previously most recent album, 2014's Too Bright, stepped out saucily onto a bigger stage, expressing, with the production help of Adrian Utley, emotions arranged all along the slippery continuum from rage to irony to love. Now here we have seized the vocabulary of the full expression of all music.

Thank You Scientist Bent Knee - Rough Trade NYC
December 14, 2017 - Brooklyn

Bent Knee is unlike any band you've ever heard. Its borderless sound combines myriad influences from across the rock, pop, minimalist, and avant-garde spectrums into a seamless, thrilling whole. Its new album Land Animal?Bent Knee's first for InsideOutMusic/Sony?takes its sound to a new level. It offers a suite of songs full of addictive hooks, lush melodies and enthralling twists and turns that capture the reality of life in the 21st Century?a reality of people and nations in the midst of tumultuous change. It also communicates a ray of hope and desire for listeners to embrace the fact that they're not alone in their struggles. "The silo-smashing Bent Knee's unique mix is equal parts ingenuity and deliciousness," said Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal in 2016 when he first heard the group. "Bent Knee breaks new stylistic and temperamental ground," declared Steve Smith of The Boston Globe. Other media outlets worldwide have reacted with similar enthusiasm, including NPR and the BBC, which have playlisted the band. Bent Knee formed in 2009 as a democratic collective determined to push the boundaries of pop and rock. Lead singer and keyboardist Courtney Swain's soaring voc... (read more)

Kip Moore , Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen - The Town Hall
December 14, 2017 - New York

Kip Moore often lies awake in bed at night. Melodies and lyrics swirl through his head. Sometimes they'll dissipate as seamlessly as they first arrived. Other times, the singer-songwriter can do nothing but begin singing them aloud. It frees his ever-churning mind. It allows him to continually discover his own voice. It grounds him. Most importantly, for a man prone to bouts of self-doubt, it reassures Moore that his path is a righteous one. "I have a complete sense of calm right now," the singer-songwriter says. "During this whole journey, as down as I've gotten at times, I've done this thing my way. I don't have any regrets. I'm always looking ahead." The journey Moore speaks to is a monumental one: from that of a struggling Nashville musician to a massive country superstar with his mammoth 2012 debut album Up All Night; and an artistic adventurer with 2015's sonically bold and critically revered second effort, Wild Ones. Now Moore is set to release his most unflinching, distinct testimony yet: "I know how strong this record is. I know its capabilities," Moore says of SLOWHEART, the country star's evocative and profound third album due on September 8th. The culmination of a... (read more)

Dialogue and Discourse - The Jewish Museum
December 14, 2017 - Upper East Side

This conversation with artists Brendan Fernandes and Aliza Nisenbaum, moderated by Joshua Cohen, Assistant Professor, African Art History, The City College of New York, revisits the work of Amedeo Modigliani through the 21st-century lens of formal and cultural appropriation. As these artists engage with layered notions of identity and incorporation of "other" subjects and elements in their own practices, they consider what is at stake in trying to inhabit a visual language or persona that is not one's own. What prompts this gesture of identification, and how do we go about reading degrees of cultural hijacking, appreciation, or both, at once? Joshua Cohen (B.A. Vassar College, Ph.D. Columbia University) is a historian of African art specializing in 20th-century cross-cultural exchange. His areas of interest include modernist appropriations of African sculpture; histories of West African national cultural policies and ballet performance; "primitivism" in art practice and discourse; postcolonial studies; museum studies; and global modernisms. He is the recipient of Fulbright, Lurcy, Kittredge, Dedalus, Mellon, Whiting, and other fellowships. His first book-length project tracks A... (read more)

Barton Fink. 1991. USA. Directed by Joel Coen. Screenplay by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen. With John Turturro, John Goodman, Judy Davis. 35mm. 116 min.

Somewhat horrified with his assignment, he decamps to the Earle Hotel in Los Angeles, an art deco edifice with creepy hallways and empty guestrooms, where he meets his next-door neighbor, Charlie Meadows.

The rest as they say is internet history.

With trumpeter/vocalist Bria Skonberg "Bria Skonberg plays trumpet like a red hot devil and sings like a dream." ? The Wall Street Journal "Ms. Skonberg has become the shining hope of hot jazz, on the strength of a clarion trumpet style indebted to Louis Armstrong, a smooth purr of a singing voice inspired by Anita O'Day, and the wholesome glow of youth" ? The New York Times Trumpeter, singer, and songwriter Bria Skonberg is a local favorite taking her place in the jazz/pop lineage pioneered by artists like Harry Connick, Jr., Diana Krall, and Michael Bublé.

Trophy, featuring the young troubadour's most serious set of songs, offers a new side of Sunny Sweeney. Rootsy and real, Trophy showcases Sweeney's maturation as a songwriter and as an artistgrowing into her own. Trophy is the follow-up to Provoked (2014), which offered a glimpse into where Sweeney was headed. Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, No Depression, The Washington Post and Elle are just a handful of the outlets that supported Sweeney's direction. NPR's All Things Considered said, "Sunny Sweeney has all the right stuff for country stardom - a Texas pedigree, a heart-melting voice, stunning looks and the ability to seem both tough and vulnerable". On Concrete, her 2011 major label release, Sweeney became the first female artist to reach the Top 10 on the country radio charts in over a decade. Sweeney has never been afraid to write about personal experiences, her unapologetic honesty and revealing vulnerability shows her as an artist who is equally as tough as she is tender.

Input | Com Truise/ Telefon Tel Aviv/ Baile at Output - Output
December 14, 2017 - Brooklyn

Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12'-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls "mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk". Haley's been making music on the side for roughly a decade?going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)?first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave. Formed in 1999 in New Orleans, Telefon Tel Aviv eventually got signed to Chicago's Hefty Records and released their acclaimed debut album in the fall of 2001. Other side projects include the score for the 2001 film New Port South. Their second album, "Map Of What Is Effortless", came out in January 2004. Charlie Cooper passed away on January 22nd 2009.

December 14, 2017 - New York

"There was a point in my childhood when I thought I was going to be a preacher," says Michael Grubbs, the frontman-songwriter behind Brooklyn's Wakey!Wakey! "I was going to have a congregation, talk to them about life, about how to get by. I guess this is kind of my pulpit now." Ever since his single "War Sweater" jettisoned him into stardom five years ago (thanks to a game-changing plug on One Tree Hill), the indie-pop singer has built a following that's as passionate as his compositions. His fans have bought 45,000 copies of his self-released debut, the exquisitely tortured Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said the Last Time I Saw You. They've permanently inked his lyrics on their bodies (you can find them on display at the "W!W! Tattoos!!!" Pinterest board). And in the ultimate gesture of support, they crowd-funded his self-released follow-up album, the fittingly titled Salvation?and even exceeded the goal by 141 percent. Meanwhile, Salvation's first single, the bright, palpitating "Wake Up (Lily, I Love You?)," is already off to an auspicious start, amassing global grassroots traction. Wakey!Wakey! fans are not passive, and that is not lost on a humbled Grubbs. "That has fund... (read more)

The Transnational Roots of the Jewish State: What Can Malaria Eradication Teach Us About the History of Israel? - Center for Jewish History
December 14, 2017 - New York

Focusing on malaria eradication in mandatory Palestine, this lecture will examine the global and transnational dynamics that influenced Jewish state-formation. Malaria was a major problem, which threatened to undermine Zionist goals, such as immigration and settlement, given the high morbidity rates that made early settlements barely able to sustain themselves. The lecture will look at the dynamics of scientific knowledge that was implemented in Palestine as well as the logic that dominated the organization of antimalarial activities to show how these were imported to the country from various other places including the United States, Panama and India. Speaker Omri Tubi is a PhD candidate in the Sociology Department at Northwestern University and the recipient of the 2017 Martin and Rhoda Safer/JDC Archives Fellowship. He is using the fellowship toward his research on the relationship between public health campaigns and state-formation in Mandatory Palestine

Ingrid Michaelson's 11th Annual Holiday Hop - Terminal 5
December 14, 2017 - New York

To say Ingrid Michaelson is prolific is an understatement: In just a decade, she has released six albums (five of which have charted) and ten singles (eight charted). But to say she's an emotional multitasker? That's a relatively new accomplishment for her. The love's-labors-lost banger "Hell No," is her first single in a year. It's also surprisingly playful. Because over the past two years, Michaelson has grappled with not only the personal and familial sickness chronicled in her previous album, 'Lights Out,' but also the death of her mother and demise of her marriage. For some, it can take a lifetime to navigate the stages of so much grief. But Michaelson did it in record time. Her new album, the aptly named 'It Doesn't Have to Make Sense' (out August 26, Cabin 24/RED), is a powerfully honest time capsule of her undoings and rebirths. "Allowing myself to not try to make everything make sense was freeing for me," she explains the New York-based singer. "Life doesn't always make sense." Previously, her glass-half-full outlook served her richly. It started with beautiful, idiosyncratic creations such as "The Way I Am" (2007) and "Maybe" (2009), songs that have breathed life ...

Aaron Neville - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
December 15, 2017 - New York

Until now, it's been easy to separate Aaron Neville's career into two separate but equal strains: the funky stuff he's favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he's punching his own time card as a solo artist. Casual fans might admit they don't know much -- to borrow a phrase -- about Neville's musical center, but they've perceived a certain split in his career. An education is about to be provided, then, in the form of Apache, a solo album that makes the case for Aaron Neville as the most holistic of soul men. Its hard R&B side matches anything the Neville Brothers ever recorded for true grit, while still allowing plenty of space for a singer who's arguably the most distinctive vocal stylist on the planet to tell it like it is.

Mandarin and Hunan dialect with Chinese and English subtitles, 94 min. In 2010 builders broke ground on the Xu-Huai Highway, a section of China?s 100,000-kilometer highway system in the mountainous western region of Hunan province. Zhang Zanbo spent more than three years at the construction site filming the conditions of the migrant laborers, contractors, officials, and local residents there. The rise of this highway has been marked by frequent public security incidents, acts of resistance, and mafia interventions. The construction has laid the landscape and many historical and cultural sites to waste. As this miracle of modern engineering takes shape, it offers an apt allegory for the dreams of a nation. https://www.guggenheim.org/event/turn-it-on-the-road

December 15, 2017 - New York

1951, Elia Kazan, USA, 125 min. Selected and introduced by theater director JoAnne Akalaitis Based on the play by Tennessee Williams, this renowned drama follows troubled former schoolteacher Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) as she leaves small-town Mississippi and moves in with her sister, Stella Kowalski (Kim Hunter), and her husband, Stanley (Marlon Brando), in New Orleans. Blanche's flirtatious Southern-belle persona causes problems for Stella and Stanley, who already have a volatile relationship, leading to even greater conflict in the Kowalski household. The movie features a groundbreaking, Oscar-nominated jazz score by Alex North, who composed a musical identity for each character, from lush violins with dissonant undertones for Blanche's doomed romance to sultry horns for Stanley's brute masculinity.

Hair flips and high kicks, lipstick and lace -- NYC's sexiest Dance Variety Show promises to entertain! Guilty Pleasures Cabaret's sultry charm and feminine energy brings refreshing talent and artistry to the cabaret theater experience. They were founded in 2014 by six friends in New York City who wanted to produce a show that highlighted both their performing and creative talents. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born - thus earning their namesake "Guilty Pleasures Cabaret". The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months they moved downtown where they were selling out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home. With a speak-easy feel, a hint of the roaring twenties, and a sprinkle of the swinging sixties - the show remains modern and sexy. The ladies, clad in fishnets, tap dance, contort, sing, and pirouette to the sounds of 'Chicago', 'Great Gatsby', 'Cabaret', Beyonce, and Nancy Sinatra, to name a few, playfully mixing the old with the new.

Fast Romantics Megative Sean Carroll Hayes Peebles - Mercury Lounge
December 15, 2017 - New York

This event is 21 and over Fast Romantics are a Toronto-based band first formed in Calgary by Matthew Angus and Jeffrey Lewis. The son of a piano teacher, Angus drifted in the margins of the Calgary music scene before forming the band with Lewis in 2008. Following some early independent releases the band began work on their first LP, Afterlife Blues (2013), shortly after moving to Toronto, with producer Howard Redekopp (New Pornographers, Teagan & Sara). The album was in some sense a process of discovery for the band, as they grew into their sound, encompassing new influences as Angus began to refine his songwriting. The album's first single, "Funeral Song," was an early culmination of this process, and rapidly garnered an audience via heavy radio play, propelling the band into a year of consistent touring highlighted by prominent slots at Virgin Fest, SXSW and CMJ. Despite this early success the band found themselves at a crossroads as they considered their next step, and Angus began to question the band's direction. "There was a disconnect," says Angus, "we'd go out and make loud party music but that wasn't what I was listening to when I got home, so there was a disparity and ... (read more)

The Hipp Pipps, The Rousers, No Valentine - The Map Room at The Bowery Electric
December 15, 2017 - New York

No Valentine has an arsenal of original songs that don't all sound alike. It's definitely rock n roll, but it's more than that. There are lean guitar riffs straight from 1968 London, 4 on the floor punk beats, Stax like grooves, and full on barn-burners. Lyrics speak universal truths and sing la la las, ballads of murder with hooks of pop. On every tune you get 1... 2... 3... or no vocals at all. Nothing like a galloping hard rock instrumental. No Valentine is an exciting and unpredictable live band, check them out!

Revive Big Band led by Igmar Thomas - Ginny's Supper Club
December 15, 2017 - New York,

Bridging together genres and artists of multiple generations ?Igmar Thomas' Revive Big Band brings a high-energy big band approach to music by Oliver Nelson, Wayne Shorter, A Tribe Called Quest, J. Dilla, Freddie Hubbard, Bilal, and more. This chameleonic group shifts with ease across swing, funk, hip-hop, R&B, soul, and beyond. Wayne Shorter's "Speak No Evil," to give one example, begins with a jagged, angular hip-hop groove before settling into a jazz/hip-hop fusion feel most popularly associated with artists like Robert Glasper (himself a member of the Revive collective). The big band instrumentation and detailed arrangements give these pieces a fresh and powerful energy with major crossover appeal for fans of any of the incorporated genres. A true super-group, the Revive Big Band has included over 50 members, all of whom have major name recognition in jazz, and many of whom have made significant contributions to the growing realm of jazz that?with knowledge, purpose, and integrity?incorporates defining elements of younger genres.

December 15, 2017 - New York

In 2010 builders broke ground on the Xu-Huai Highway, a section of China's 100,000-kilometer highway system in the mountainous western region of Hunan province. Zhang Zanbo spent more than three years at the construction site filming the conditions of the migrant laborers, contractors, officials, and local residents there. The rise of this highway has been marked by frequent public security incidents, acts of resistance, and mafia interventions. The construction has laid the landscape and many historical and cultural sites to waste. As this miracle of modern engineering takes shape, it offers an apt allegory for the dreams of a nation.

Tom Hamilton Acoustic Duo - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3
December 15, 2017 - New York

Tom Hamilton Acoustic, the new project extending outward from The American Babies came about through an unexpected performance at a 2017 benefit concert. "When I was asked to put something together for the Rex Foundation show", says Tom, "I saw a low pressure opportunity to try something a bit different." With a guitar playing style rooted in exploration of not just songs, but sound and tone Tom "wanted to bring that exploration of textures in an acoustic environment along with another player and see what developed." The end result is something intimate, yet dynamic and psychedelic as well. Growing up in the heyday of MTV Unplugged, it was easy for Tom to see an acoustic show as a specific brand. Stripped. Bare. Monochrome. At these acoustic duo shows reverb and delays are used to bring color back into the sound and take the acoustic show into a different direction. "If a regular set was in HD, than this version of my music would be watercolors." Something familiar, but constructed with a different style and palette. The end goal is to bring songs into a life that is unique unto the moment itself. Let songs live, breathe and grow so that they react organically to the moments ... (read more)

Marcus Gilmore - Nublu
December 15, 2017 - New York

In an article entitled "Five Drummers Whose Time Is Now," Ben Ratliff of The New York Times describes the drummer Marcus Gilmore's style with the following phrase: "it sounds natural and never looks easy." The winner in the "Rising Star Drummer" category of the 2012 DownBeat Critics' Poll, Marcus is one of the music's most in-demand drummers. He has already toured the world as a regular member of some of today's most important jazz groups, including Steve Coleman & Five Elements, the Vijay Iyer Trio, and the Gonzalo Rubalcaba Trio, and has performed with countless other luminaries including Chick Corea, Ravi Coltrane, Nicholas Payton, and many others. Marcus got his start on the drums as a child under the mentorship of his grandfather Roy Haynes, "jazz's most important living drummer" (The New York Times). At fifteen, the drummer began to work with Steve Coleman, who he met through his uncle, the cornetist/trumpeter Graham Haynes. Before graduating from LaGuardia High School, Marcus had already internalized the saxophonist's complex and highly personal language well enough to perform in Five Elements, and had also joined the quartet of the pianist-composer Vijay Iyer. He is also ... (read more)

Leif Vollebekk - Rough Trade NYC
December 15, 2017 - Brooklyn

"A friend told me it was Saturn returns and that may be true. I was about to turn thirty and I knew that if I didn't change direction I was going to end up exactly where I was headed." At the end of Leif Vollebekk's twenties, his own songs didn't sound right. He had spent an entire year on the road, playing almost 100 shows, but every night his favourite moment came only right at the end, covering a song by Ray Charles or Townes Van Zandt. Every time he got home from tour he took a hot shower and lay still under a window, listening to Nick Drake's Pink Moon, feeling saved, wondering why his own music didn't give him that. Why the songs he had written himself always felt like so much work. He booked himself a secret show. One night only at a Montreal dive bar -- not to play his own songs but other people's. Leif found a rhythm section and they rehearsed once. Then midnight unspooled. Leif called it the most fun he had ever had playing music: Ray Charles and Tom Waits over a locked groove; Bob Dylan and Kendrick Lamar over a slow pulse. The light was dark blue and purple. Listen to it in a rental car in cold weather, with the windows all rolled up. Listen to it laying by an ... (read more)

Through December 15, 2017 - New York

WHY SEE THE HIP HOP NUTCRACKER? BALLET MEETS HIP HOP IN THIS MARVELLOUS MASHUP! What do you get when you combine the elegant holiday score of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker and a DJ with pin-sharp contemporary hip hop dance? This hit show mashes up two very American icons into a stunning production that has met with rave reviews since its 2014 Washington debut. Moving the story action to New Year's Eve, the mouse army is replaced with a mouse-ear wearing gang, a humble nut seller who saves the day, and the Land of the Sweets a nightclub trapped in 1985. Pirouhettes are replaced with floor windmills, making this a truly contemporary holiday treat. WHAT TO EXPECT When Maria-Clara is kidnapped on New Year's Eve by a menacing gang wearing mouse ears, she is rescued by a lowly nut cart owner Myron the Nutcracker. Drosselmeyer, a street musician with a cape and a plume of black and pink hair has powers of time travel and telekinesis; in thanks he sends the two youngsters to a nightclub in 1985 - The Land of Sweets. There they meet an eclectic group of revellers, all of whom have their own distinctive street take on the Pas De Dex, Dance of the Flowers and The Russian Dance.

John Minihan: Beckett and His World - Irish Arts Center
Through December 15, 2017 - New York

Walter Asmus directed Waiting for Godot and worked with Samuel Beckett in Berlin in the 1970s, author Edna O'Brien and publisher John Calder made up his circle in London, and actor Lisa Dwan gave life to Not I as never before. These are some of the luminaries who made up a world of Beckett, both during his life, and after his passing. John Minihan captures their essence in black and white portraiture, including his iconic images of Beckett himself. In his artist talk "Beckett and the Wake," John remembers spending time with a playwright who was often a reluctant subject and rarely posed. John Minihan photographed volumes I and II of IAC's cultural exhibition To Love Two Countries, a celebration of the men and women who immigrated to the United States in the early half of the twentieth century. Culture Night is an annual public event in Ireland that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organizations and venues of all shapes and sizes extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. This year we join by opening our gallery doors for a daytime opportunity to view Beckett and His World.

December 16, 2017 - New York

The Gold Magnolias: Magnolium Aurum: A very rare species of gilded flora native to the U.S. South, but found lately amongst the evergreens and seldom-greens of New York City. Born in a hot house in Brooklyn by the name of Soul II Soul, one particular specimen has blossomed and spread it's funky aroma throughout the entire United States. Ancient Aztec mystics believed the five petals of Magnolium Aurum represented the five pillars of funk. Let's listen to their wisdom. Sweet-Sangin', Guitar-Slangin' songsmith Hudson Mueller and Golden-throated, Gee-wiz Key-wiz Evan Felts lead the pollination effort with their syrupy sweet jams.

The petals at the the bottom are reserved for the funky foundation of Bass-man Daniel Foose and drummer Jeff "Double-Clutch" Barton. For the past five years this union of southern soul soldiers has wafted their funky fragrance to audiences across the world with such hits as "Southern Man" and "Dirty French Fry". They are now releasing their sophomore album, "Sail on Glam Dog" with more fun, provocative and above all, funky tunes for your enjoyment.

Kendra Morris Vinyl Release Show - Rough Trade NYC
December 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

Kendra Morris recalls singers who straddled soul and rock during the early '70s, such as Ruth Copeland and Chaka Khan, while her contemporaries include the likes of Mayer Hawthorne, Alice Russell, and Leela James. Morris's musical taste was developed through her parents' record collection, a library heavy on late-60s and early-70s soul and funk. During her childhood Morris's main companion was her karaoke machine, which she also used for the sake of recording. While enrolled in college in Tampa, FL, she became so involved in performing with bands that she decided to leave behind her studies and take on music full time. She took up the guitar, as well as songwriting, and eventually involved herself with a band, Pinktricity, which moved to New York in 2003 and split shortly thereafter. Morris took to recording songs on her own, and self-released a pair of EPs: This Won't Hurt a Bit (2007) and Milk and Cookies Never Lie (2008). Her first proper recording, a self-titled EP (2010), was recorded with producer and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Page (of That Handsome Devil). After touring with legendary guitarist Dennis Coffey and releasing a series of singles which included "Concrete Waves... (read more)

Kevin Devine - Music Hall of Williamsburg
December 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

KEVIN DEVINE is used to living life in the gray. For the past 14 years, the Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter has oscillated between As and Bs: intimate acoustic moments and bombastic rock songs; deeply introspective lyrics and sociopolitical charges; the storm cloud and its silver lining. Produced by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.) and released via Brand New's Procrastinate! Music Traitors label, INSTIGATOR is Devine's ninth full-length album and comes on the heels of a busy few years: In addition to recording two albums with Bad Books (the indie-rock supergroup he formed with members of Manchester Orchestra), he released the Kickstarter-funded double-album collection BUBBLEGUM and BULLDOZER in 2013 along with the wildly ambitious 2015 DEVINYL SPLITS 7" series with the likes of Brand New's Jesse Lacey, Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves and Nada Surf's Matthew Caws. Devine is a master storyteller, and he imbues Instigator - from the biting power-pop of "Both Ways" and "No Why" to the angular, Nirvana-esque "Guard Your Gates" & gorgeously finger-picked "No One Says You Have To" - with intricate details and often-uncomfortable truths. Their meanings are personal, but thei... (read more)

Turn It On Film Series: Disturbing the Peace - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
December 16, 2017 - New York

On the afternoon of May 12, 2008, an 8.0-magnitude earthquake hit Wenchuan county in northern Sichuan province, devastating a vast area of mountainous terrain and killing some 70,000 people, including thousands of children who were in school when it hit. Around the country, concerned citizens began to question why the government-built school buildings collapsed so easily, burying thousands of children alive, when other edifices had withstood the strike. In response to suspicion that corruption had resulted in deficient construction for the schools, the government concealed information and refused to release the number and names of the students who had died. Activist Tan Zuoren was arrested for investigating the deaths, charged with inciting subversion of state power. Ai Weiwei, who was also researching the situation and would eventually publish the full roster of names on his blog, was invited to testify at Tan?s trial. As soon as Ai and his group arrived in Chengdu, they were followed and filmed. This harassment culminated with the police breaking into Ai?s hotel room and beating him, causing cranial trauma. This film records Ai and his lawyers as they repeatedly travel to Chengdu... (read more)

The Hood Internet - Brooklyn Bowl
December 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

As the name that they go by suggests, The Hood Internet are quite clearly an act in thrall to the possibilities that the internet has opened up, these past few years, for hip hop as a genre; it's especially true of alternative hip hop, whereby artists play by different rules and experiment more than the mainstream side of the style would really allow. The Chicago duo ? comprised of ABX and STV SLV ? were primarily concerned with mashing up other hip hop tracks to begin with, after they formed in 2007, but have since gone on to pursue original material, in the form of their one album to date, FEAT; the album features underground guest spots form the likes of Tobacco, Class Actress and Cadence Weapon. In addition, the pair have also pursued slightly sillier things, like Album Tacos, a series of photoshopped classic album covers with tacos covering the original content, but they've also played live sets, which has seen them mash up classic hip hop cuts in a slick and often comical manner; it's little wonder, then, that they've managed to carve out a cult fanbase, one that's no doubt eagerly awaiting the next move from the duo in the studio.

Guilty Pleasures Cabaret - The Duplex Cabaret Theatre
December 16, 2017 - New York

Hair flips and high kicks, lipstick and lace -- NYC's sexiest Dance Variety Show promises to entertain! Guilty Pleasures Cabaret's sultry charm and feminine energy brings refreshing talent and artistry to the cabaret theater experience. They were founded in 2014 by six friends in New York City who wanted to produce a show that highlighted both their performing and creative talents. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born - thus earning their namesake "Guilty Pleasures Cabaret". The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months they moved downtown where they were selling out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home. With a speak-easy feel, a hint of the roaring twenties, and a sprinkle of the swinging sixties - the show remains modern and sexy. The ladies, clad in fishnets, tap dance, contort, sing, and pirouette to the sounds of 'Chicago', 'Great Gatsby', 'Cabaret', Beyonce, and Nancy Sinatra, to name a few, playfully mixing the old with the new. The girls of the Guilty Pleasure... (read more)

Michaela McClain - Club Groove NYC
December 16, 2017 - New York

Michaela McClain grew up the youngest of 6 girls, and according to her mother, "she was singing before she was talking". When her father played guitar, Michaela and her sisters all crowded around the piano and sang in harmony like a real life Von Trap family. "When we were growing up, our house was always buzzing with music and people. I was lucky enough to be introduced to some great music as a child?everything from Carlos Jobim, to Ella Fitzgerald, to the Indigo Girls. Bossa nova, soulful jazz and rich harmonies influenced my musical taste early on." As an adolescent, Michaela sang in choirs, cantered in church, and sang at weddings and funerals. She wrote her first song on guitar when she was 14 years old, and throughout her teenage and college years, songwriting served Michaela by giving her an outlet and opportunity to express her heart, grapple with feelings and connect to those around her. Michaela studied music at Montclair State University, which is where she met her current bandmates, drummer Meredith Foreman and guitarist Raul Abbad. She was joined a little later on by New Jersey native, bassist Brad Schwartzseid. In 2011, McClain started performing her origi... (read more)

Nayland Blake: Crossing Object (inside Gnomen) - New Events Hello Museum
December 16, 2017 - New York

Gnomen, a hybrid bear-bison that can change sex and gender, is the "fursona" of artist Nayland Blake. A fursona is an avatar in the furry community, where personal expression is bound up with nonhuman identities and fantasies. In the performance series Crossing Object (inside Gnomen) (2017?18), presented as a part of "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon," Blake will inhabit a life-size suit of Gnomen and make themselves available for encounters with Museum visitors. With the title, Blake refers to W.D. Winnicott's notion of the transitional object: a stuffed toy or blanket that children use to construct a sense of selfhood independent of their parents. Gnomen serves as an objectification of Blake's hybrid identity, and their presence in the Museum's café and Lobby will allow visitors to make their own performances of intimacy and distance, whether through taking selfies, cuddling, or adding ribbons and bows to Gnomen's costume. In this, the piece echoes Blake's earlier performances, in which the passivity of their costumed presence foregrounds the audience's role in acts of sadism, exhibitionism, or nurturing. In these intimate situations, the close proximity to Gnomen will be t... (read more)

Samantha Fish - Cutting Room
December 16, 2017 - New York

Whether one leans towards the blues, opts for Americana or ignites some special fervour by playing with a garage band, there's a common bond that suggests a reverence for the roots. Looking back towards an earlier template ? no matter what the genre ? proves the point that appreciating what came before can be a stepping stone for what comes next. Samantha Fish knows that all too well, and it's been evidenced in the music she's made her entire career. While she's well known as a purveyor of blues, having been lauded by such legends as Buddy Guy, the Royal Southern Brotherhood and Luther Dickinson, her real love is simply raw, scrappy rock and roll. "I grew up on it," she insists. "Working with Luther on my last album further instilled that spirit in me. It made me realize just how much that basic, unfettered sound means to me, and how well it ties into soul music, R&B, country and so many other forms of music that are essential even today." It's little wonder that when it came time to record her new album, Chills & Fever (released March 17, 2017), Fish set her sights on Detroit, the home of soul, Motown, legendary R&B as well as the much edgier rock-n-roll of Iggy Pop, Jack Whit...

Dion Flynn Works Well with Others - The PIT (Peoples Improv Theater)
December 16, 2017 - New York

DION FLYNN is best known as Barack Obama on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has over 60 appearances as 14 different characters on both The Tonight Show & Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon. Cited by Oprah aMagazine as "one of our favorite creative thinkers..." Dion's solo improv has been described as: "Alternately maniacal and tender, vulnerable and ballsy, Dion Flynn looses his brand of liquid, synapse-rich comedy in an evening of interactive improv which takes the audience on a loopy, looping comic odyssey from which the ghosts of Orson Welles and Spalding Grey are never far. Flynn's mind is both shock and absorber, as spongy and receptive as the suspension in a New York taxicab: pretty soon, you're flying." ? Tom Shone, Film Critic, Intelligent Life "Dion Flynn's solo theatrical improvisations are what it would be if Jackson Pollack and James Joyce did comedy." -An audience member named Nick, pressed for comment during a show by Dion. "Dion's solo performance at The PIT is an experience. He takes the audience on the same journey he is going through as he figures out his show/performance art piece/happening. And it's all in an empty space, armed with only a microphone, a... (read more)

Kasten in the Mid-Hudson Valley' Tour with Sanford Levy - Historic Huguenot Street
December 16, 2017 - New Paltz,

Take a special tour of the exhibition Kasten in the Mid-Hudson Valley, led by Sanford Levy. Over a dozen American-made kasten from the HHS Permanent Collection and selected loans will be featured in the Jean Hasbrouck House and the Abraham Hasbrouck House, to complement the exhibition Living in Style: Selections from the George Way Collection of Dutch Fine and Decorative Art.

Some simpler versions made by country craftsmen feature cut-out or stylized feet and may or may not have drawers.

Turn It On Film Series: Disturbing the Peace - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
December 16, 2017 - New York

On the afternoon of May 12, 2008, an 8.0-magnitude earthquake hit Wenchuan county in northern Sichuan province, devastating a vast area of mountainous terrain and killing some 70,000 people, including thousands of children who were in school when it hit. Around the country, concerned citizens began to question why the government-built school buildings collapsed so easily, burying thousands of children alive, when other edifices had withstood the strike. In response to suspicion that corruption had resulted in deficient construction for the schools, the government concealed information and refused to release the number and names of the students who had died. Activist Tan Zuoren was arrested for investigating the deaths, charged with inciting subversion of state power. Ai Weiwei, who was also researching the situation and would eventually publish the full roster of names on his blog, was invited to testify at Tan's trial. As soon as Ai and his group arrived in Chengdu, they were followed and filmed. This harassment culminated with the police breaking into Ai's hotel room and beating him, causing cranial trauma. This film records Ai and his lawyers as they repeatedly travel to Chengdu... (read more)

Champagne School: Prestige Cuvées - Flute Bar -Midtown
December 16, 2017 - New York

A 'Prestige Cuvée' is a champagne at the very top of a producer's range. It is the highest quality, the most refined - and the most expensive - champagne that the house offers. Think Krug, Cristal, Dom Perignon and Rare. What makes these champagnes so special? Since there are no official guidelines for designating a Prestige Cuvée as there are for other categories of French champagne, this question can only be answered by understanding a champagne house's wine making philosophy and tasting the end result of the wine maker's best effort. What food do you pair with the world's best Champagnes? Caviar of course! This incredible tasting will include pairings from Petrossian Paris. This is a seated tasting presented to a small group by Flûte's experts. You will be tasting some of the world's best champagnes and tickets are limited! Each month, Champagne School offers the opportunity to learn about champagnes or sparkling wines in a tasting guided by Flûte's experts. See the entire 2017 class schedule.

The concert will take place on Saturday, December 16th at 7:30 p.m. at St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church on West 87th Street between Broadway and West End Avenue in Manhattan. In 1706, the 21 year old Händel travelled to Italy, premièring operas in both Florence and Venice to great acclaim. The performance of opera, however, had been banned in the Papal States, so by the time he reached Rome in 1707, Händel started composing sacred music and secular cantatas. "Dixit Dominus", a dramatic, brilliant, and virtuosic setting of Psalm 110, was written in Rome, most likely at the behest of one o... (read more)

Laughing Buddha Comedy w/ Jeff Lawrence, and More! - The Stand
December 16, 2017 - New York

A prototypical native New Yorker, Jeff was born and raised in Queens, and is proud to let you know he got out. The Gay Jew, as he is affectionately known, was once a rock singer who has appeared on MTV, and with Bob Dylan on the Grammy Awards. He's a native New Yorker, Brooklyn Nets season ticket holder, recovering pothead, and is against gay marriage. Well, at least until he figures out gay dating. He professes to know more about sports than any straight dude, and less about gay culture than any gay man. Originally from Aurora, CO, Dan Soder started doing stand-up at 21 while attending the University of Arizona. After two years of playing clubs and casinos all over the southwest, Dan decided he'd had enough of extreme heat and venomous animals, so he moved to New York to get serious about stand-up. After living in New York for six years Dan has been featured on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Conan, and appeared on Opie and Anthony. This year, you can see him on Comedy Central's The Half Hour and also see his commentary as a new cast member of MTV2's Guy Code.

Rezz - PlayStation Theater
December 16, 2017 - New York

Mass Manipulation World Tour Mad Zach Though young at 22 years of age, REZZ is anything but an amateur as a producer of genre bending works, striking a sharp balance between bass heavy and minimal tech composition. With less than a handful of EPs under her belt, she just returned from her first solo headlining tour which saw sold out shows across the board. Having gotten her start in music as a local DJ in her hometown of Niagara Falls, she was still a teen when she decided that production was the path she would take. After studying sound design extensively at home and psychology as an aid to her creative process, her experimentation, dedication and hard work have paid off in paving a way for a long career ahead as a producer of downtempo soundscapes. With a strong vision and no two ways about it, REZZ's headstrong decisiveness is arguably the key to her success so far. She began to build a following on SoundCloud with a series of free releases which in a short time inevitably caught the ears of EDM golden boys Skrillex and Deadmau5, who helped bring her out to the masses with near back-to-back releases of a three-track Insurrection EP on OWSLA's The Nest imprint in 2015, fol...

Tesseract - Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)
Through December 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

Charles Atlas / Rashaun Mitchell / Silas Riener Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival Choreographic duo Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener present the fruit of their years-long collaboration with pioneering video artist (and fellow Merce Cunningham Dance Company alumnus) Charles Atlas, a fearlessly inventive exploration of the body's three dimensions, in two parts. The evening opens with a transportive 3D dance film, split into six vividly rendered chapters. Fusing experimental cinematography with otherworldly set and costume design, each section presents a saturated choreographic vision where movement and mise-en-scène seamlessly come together.

New York Philharmonic - Handel's Messiah - David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
Through December 16, 2017 - New York

WHY SEE NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC - HANDEL'S MESSIAH? Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow, the acclaimed New York Philharmonic Orchestra performs George Frideric Handel's signature piece, Messiah. The piece was first performed in 1742 in Dublin, and has since become a firm favorite among classical music lovers. The piece is an oratorio, which is a musical work similar to an opera but performed utilizing the vocals of both soloists as well as a choir, and often without the same narrative structure as an opera. Handel's Messiah is based on Biblical scripture. The 2015 season of New York Philharmonic's annual performance of Messiah is conducted by Gary Thor Wedow, an Indiana native and now New York resident. Mr Wedow has conducted the city orchestras of New York, Seattle and Kansas City among many others, building one of the most formidable resumes in the country. This is in fact the second time he has conducted The Phil in a performance of The Messiah, having first done so in 2012.

Throughout her career, Stacey's band has partnered with Jim Tomlinson (sax) whose songwriting partnership with Nobel Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro has come to form an essential plank in her distinctive repertoire.

Through December 16, 2017 - Fort Greene

Directed by Lee Sunday Evans Part of the 2017 Next Wave Festival Part artist talk, part memoir, part gleefully rambling cultural essay, Suzanne Bocanegra's performance work mines her Texan upbringing, aesthetic influences, and far-reaching imagination to make sense of our collective subconscious. In Farmhouse/Whorehouse, inspired by her grandparents who lived on a small farm across the road from the Chicken Ranch (better known as the "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas"), Bocanegra uses text, costumes, video projections, and a new song by Shara Nova with lyrics by Bocanegra's grandmother to consider the American myth of rural utopia. Following her acclaimed collaborations with actors Paul Lazar (When a Priest Marries a Witch, an Artist Lecture) and Frances McDormand (Bodycast: An Artist Lecture, 2013 Next Wave), this third installment in the series enlists the talents of Brooklyn-based actress Lili Taylor.

The letters, maps, and musical scores in REMAINS TO BE SEEN seems to guide the artist, and his allegiance to them gives the work its power. They merge in forms that celebrate the imperfect and come, in the artist?s words, ?straight off the nervous system?.

Formed in 2008 after years of playing in the New York/New Jersey alternative, hardcore punk and metal scene, the self proclaimed "Velvet Grunge" band had a new shared focus: brotherhood, strong songwriting and never looking back. They wanted to stray from the trends that they were seeing in the music industry. Together they wanted to write songs that could stand the test of time.

December 17, 2017 - New York

Spells and Curses is a New York-based hybrid rock group, known for challenging the passive thought patterns of modern day culture. Courtship, sex, commitment, loneliness, fetishes, vindication, love and hate; all is fair game when brought under their musical lens of inquiry. With a belief that every song is a spell to enhance the moment or a curse to damn it, their continual mission remains; creating "below the belt rock n' roll" to not only think outside the box, but expand it. "Vanderlyle began in Philadelphia as a project between four friends that joined together post-college graduation. The band's style favors piano and synth-driven melodies, jangly guitar lines, layered harmonies, all backed up by a danceable rhythm section.

The Gregory Brothers Annual Christmas Show! - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
December 17, 2017 - New York

The Gregory Brothers' unique musical stylings and comic rapport was largely formed when Evan, Michael, and Andrew began making zany mix-tapes in their living room in Radford, Virginia as tiny babies. These (sadly lost) seminal works of musical comedy gently gestated for a few years until 2007, when the brothers joined forces with a bright-eyed lass from Texas. This musical collaboration with Evan's wife, Sarah, was forged in the fiery crucible of an un-air-conditioned van during a summer tour that year. These sweaty bonds shall never be broken. After having experienced the elation of sharing their original country & soul, folk 'n' roll tunes with several dozen people on that home-grown, 50 show tour, they began making their wildly viral YouTube series, "Auto-Tune the News" in 2008. Their meager hope was that several dozen more people would bump their rumps to C-Span if it thumped with a bass line and a beat. While they continue to work on making their YouTube jams, The Gregory Brothers now tour the country speaking at colleges, playing at rock and comedy clubs, and are in the process of making a pilot for Comedy Central.

The Music of Laura Nyro feat. Diane Garisto - City Winery
December 17, 2017 - New York

DIANE GARISTO (Lead Vocals) Like Laura Nyro, Diane grew up in New York City, immersed in its musical soul. So it's not surprising that she also grew up an avid fan of Laura Nyro. Diane sang on her first recording at the age of eight, and went on to record with Billy Joel, Nile Rodgers, George Benson, Carly Simon, Laurie Anderson, Malcolm McLaren, and other industry notables. She toured extensively with Steely Dan, and had the good fortune to sing on Paul Simon's Grammy Award-winning Album of the Year, Graceland. But what she considers her most meaningful musical experience came in the mid-'90s, when she became a member of Laura Nyro's Harmony Group. As one of the trio of Nyro's backing vocalists, Diane traveled throughout the US and Japan, and also recorded two live albums. Diane has put together Stoned Soul Picnic, a celebration of the art and soul of Laura Nyro, featuring a band of top-notch New York City musicians and singers -- her way, she says, of keeping Nyro's flame burning.

'Movies That Reawaken Wonder': The Wonder of Holiday Magic | ?It's a Wonderful Life? - United Palace Theatre
December 17, 2017 - Washington Heights

United Palace, the former Loew's 175th Street Theatre which opened in 1930, kicks off a year-long classic movie series celebrating the building's past as a "Wonder Theatre" and its state-of-the-art cinematic return with a DCP projector donated by Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda, and new audio equipment. "Movies That Reawaken Wonder" was curated by the nonprofit United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA) to celebrate the magic of movies and movie-going. It explores why we fall in love with films, such as how "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" evokes "the wonder of childhood" and "Night of the Living Dead" conjures "the wonder of horror." Some titles are thematically matched to the month, such as "The Sound of Music" before Mother's Day and "Coming to America" before July Fourth. To honor the theatre's vaudeville past, live entertainment is packaged with the screenings. For example, a live organ accompanies Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights" and Donna Reed's daughter Mary Owen introduces the holiday favorite "It's a Wonderful Life."

Guilty Pleasures Cabaret's sultry charm and feminine energy brings refreshing talent and artistry to the cabaret theater experience.

Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfilled their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born - thus earning their namesake "Guilty Pleasures Cabaret". The ladies debuted their show in Manhattan on the Upper West Side at a neighborhood bar, and after nine months they moved downtown where they were selling out monthly shows at the renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater. The ladies have since made the Duplex their performing home. With a speak-easy feel, a hint of the roaring twenties, and a sprinkle of the swinging sixties - the show remains modern and sexy. The ladies, clad in fishnets, tap dance, contort, sing, and pirouette to the sounds of 'Chicago', 'Great Gatsby', 'Cabaret', Beyonce, and Nancy Sinatra, to name a few, playfully mixing the old with the new.

Most recently, Hval finished an extensive tour celebrating the fabulous release of her vampire / blood solo album Blood Bitch, provocatively styled "an investigation of? blood that is shed naturally? the purest and most powerful, yet most trivial, and most terrifying blood," co-produced by noise artist Lasse Marhaug and herself. About the Artist Hval released her first two albums under the alias Rockettothesky (an alias named after her very first recorded song in 1999, and slayed with the greatest pleasure in 2010). She has since recorded three albums under her own name: Viscera, Innocence Is Kinky, and Apocalypse, girl (Sacred Bones Records / Su Tissue, 2015). Also a writer, Hval made her literary debut with the novel Perlebryggeriet in 2009. The less genre friendly In... (read more)

Yo La Tengo - The Bowery Ballroom
Through December 18, 2017 - New York

So frequently compared to the Velvet Underground that they were featured in the 1996 film 'I Shot Andy Warhol,' Hoboken-based Yo La Tengo has explored the extremes of feedback-driven noise rock and sweetly melodic pop. They've always been the band to bridge the gap between critical acclaim and indie popularity. As Yo La Tengo's career has developed since their 1984 inception, The New York Times remarks that they specialize in "guitar-driven songs about the compromise and joy of daily life." They draw a cult-like following along with new fans who dig their sound. For the unfamiliar, think The Weepies mashed up with The Velvet Underground and hints of The Flaming Lips. Modern and timeless at the same time. Their music at various moments has encompassed folk, punk, electronica, jam, shoegazer rock, and more.

Few bands have been able to cash in on their bad habits, dirty minds and naturally god-given talents quite like power-pop band THE PINK SPIDERS. The band has gained almost as much notoriety for their exploits, attitude and iconic look, as they have for the catchy and explosive sound they generate. After a six year hiatus, the band has returned in 2017 delivering two brand new singles "Easier Than Ever" and "Black Dagger, a winter tour and a brand new album Mutations to be released in 2018. Nashville Scene described the first single "Easier Than Ever" as "[a} time-tested blend of snarly, supremely hooky Weezerian power pop." and the video for "Black Dagger" is set to premier in fall of 2017. Infamy and chaos has followed THE PINK SPIDERS since they first stormed onto the Nashville music scene in 2004 with their self-released debut The Pink Spiders Are Taking Over. It was that notoriety that translated into immediate results, as the band signed to their first indie deal less than 6 months after forming. The guys quickly generated a big buzz with their 2005 indie label release Hot Pink, an infectious dose of dark pop detailing fast getaways and faster women. Less than three week... (read more)

Yo La Tengo - The Bowery Ballroom
December 19, 2017 - New York

So frequently compared to the Velvet Underground that they were featured in the 1996 film 'I Shot Andy Warhol,' Hoboken-based Yo La Tengo has explored the extremes of feedback-driven noise rock and sweetly melodic pop. They've always been the band to bridge the gap between critical acclaim and indie popularity. As Yo La Tengo's career has developed since their 1984 inception, The New York Times remarks that they specialize in "guitar-driven songs about the compromise and joy of daily life." They draw a cult-like following along with new fans who dig their sound. For the unfamiliar, think The Weepies mashed up with The Velvet Underground and hints of The Flaming Lips. Modern and timeless at the same time. Their music at various moments has encompassed folk, punk, electronica, jam, shoegazer rock, and more.

The New York Times on Le Théâtre du Soleil Versatile in every form of theater craft, Robert Lepage is equally talented as a director, playwright, and actor with a creative and original approach that has shaken the dogma of classical stage direction to its foundations. He melds his creative vision with the legendary theater ensemble Le Théâtre du Soleil, marking the first time that its founder Ariane Mnouchkine has invited an outside director to work with her troupe, for an epic new work commissioned by the Armory that explores the treatment of the indigenous people of Canada.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band - Birdland
December 20, 2017 - Manhattan

Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Eternity Band breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. Legendary record producer George Avakian describes the band in this way: "There has never been a band quite like this one. Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always true to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 17th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder and more!

The Chordaes - Mercury Lounge
December 20, 2017 - New York

The Chordaes, who released their debut album, "Touch the Ground," in 2016 are on a mission: to bring back great, melodic rock and pop, refracted through a contemporary lens. The band's songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist, Leo Sawikin, crafts music that contains, according to Elmore Magazine, "A diverse array of sounds and ideas, inspired by the freewheeling experimentation of Radiohead and late period Beatles while retaining a strictly pop essence." Along with Leo, The Chordaes' lineup includes Ethan Glenn (Drums), Nick McFly (Bass), Dan Cobert (Keyboards), and Kevin Foley (Guitar, Backing Vocals) . The members draw on varied musical backgrounds ? indie rock, jazz, classical ? that merge into a sound Philly Mixtape dubbed "vibey and chill." The Chordaes' first recording, cut in 2014, is the album's title track and also expresses its main theme: the transition from youth to adulthood. The full album was recorded over the next year, a time of personal change, with two band members turning 21. Leo continued to write, finding inspiration in such melodically-driven idols as Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney. As early tracks were released, they received strong college radio ai... (read more)

Red Wanting Blue and The Alternate Routes Quartet - Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
December 20, 2017 - New York

The Alternate Routes are the band that helped us to remember "we are how we treat each other, and nothing more." Now they're back with a new single, "Safe Haven"?a love song that uses real life as its backdrop. "Nothing More" propelled the band into new ears and new heights, having been featured prominently in the 2014 Winter Olympics, on NCIS, and in a partnership with TOMS shoes. It was followed up with "Somewhere in America," a poignant and personal conversation about gun violence that earned the band a 2016 Independent Music Award and a visit to the White House. The Alternate Routes first burst onto the scene in 2005 with their breakthrough album Good and Reckless and True. They released several albums on Vanguard Records and on their own, toured extensively, and relentlessly refined their craft. They have collaborated with such seemingly disparate artists as singer-songwriter Patti Griffin, director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right), and guitarist Carl Broemel of My Morning Jacket.

Roots NYC Holiday Celebration | Louie Vega & Kevin Hedge - Cielo
December 20, 2017 - New York

A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. A godfather of global dance music, Louie Vega has painted an award-winning career from a palette mixed with everything from salsa and afro-beat, to jazz, hip-hop and soul. What distinguishes the Grammy winner and 4-time nominee as one of the best living house music deejays is his ability to evolve alongside the times, distill the current musical landscape through his unique taste and put his own timeless spin on it. "Little" Louie Vega, as he is sometimes affectionately known, was born in the Bronx into a musically gifted family (his father, a jazz saxophonist, and his uncle, Salsa King Héctor Lavoe). The "Little" moniker is ironic, given the fact that by the 80s he was deejaying at clubs he wasn't even old enough to attend, holding residencies at Studio 54, Devil's Nest, Hearthrob, Roseland, and the Palladium. Soon Vega was producing his own remixes, which included Information Society's "Running", Noel's "Silent Morning" and Debbie Gibson's "Only in my Dreams". Then in 1991 he joined Atlantic Records?and hit th... (read more)
