Yitzhak Rabin: Chronicle of an Assassination - Lincoln Center Festival
July 19, 2017 - New York

Acclaimed filmmaker Amos Gitai blends the words of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin's widow, Leah, with live music and projected imagery to yield this intimate theatrical counterpoint to his 2015 investigative film, Rabin, the Last Day. Seated at either end of a table, two Israeli women—one Arab and one Jewish—read from Leah's memoirs. Together, they travel back through time to explore the violence that led to Rabin's assassination, traumatizing a country and sending shockwaves across the world. Premiered at the Festival d'Avignon last summer, the piece exists between an elegy and a lullaby, a poetic fable "reconstructing the past and renewing the conscience of humanity" (Inferno Magazine).

Inspired by Wills, the Stewarts' Grand Ole Opera stages immersive theatrical installations that recreate their Southern heritage and childhood experiences, paying homage while complicating and transgressing the clichés of the American South.

That same year we went back to Europe as a part of Metalfilia 2007, a 12 city tour of Poland, sharing the stage with bands from Japan, Mexico, Poland and Russia. In 2008 I started working as a composer for Siblings Music Company.

The Extremists' Opera - Japan Society
July 19, 2017 - New York

FEATURE SLATE INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE When theater director Naoko (Saori) holds auditions for the first production of her newly established all-female theater troupe, she is mesmerized by Haru (Arisa Nakamura), who barges into the old garage where they rehearse. Naoko chooses Haru to be the lead as she leverages her power as director to pursue the romantic connection that fuels her voracious creativity. However, as opening night approaches, jealous entanglements threaten the artistic and ideological aims of the project, as well as the relationship with Haru pulling Naoko from her womanizing ways. Based on her own semi-autobiographical novel Kokan, cult theater director and actress Junko Emoto makes her directorial debut in this playful drama relishing the toil and passion of a struggling creative life on and off stage. 2016. 90 min. Blu-ray, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Junko Emoto. With Saori, Arisa Nakamura, Yuki Sakurai, Suzuka Morita, Mayu Sakuma.

Resistance at Tule Lake - Japan Society
July 19, 2017 - New York

DOCUMENTARY FOCUS EAST COAST PREMIERE Introduction and Q&A with director Konrad Aderer A dominant narrative of the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans is that they behaved as a "model minority," cooperating without protest and proving their patriotism by enlisting in the army. Konrad Aderer's (Enemy Alien) documentary overturns this history, telling the story of the 12,000 Japanese Americans labeled "disloyal" who dared to resist the U.S. government's program of mass incarceration at Tule Lake Segregation Center. Through the voices of contemporary descendents on pilgrimages to the concentration camp memorial site, rare stock footage and photographs, lawyers and historians, and invaluable oral history from those who lived through it, Resistance at Tule Lake brings to surface stories of dissent and noncooperation marginalized for 70 years—ever more vital today amidst new threats to the rights of immigrants and minorities. 2017. 78 min. DCP, in English. Directed by Konrad Aderer. "Aderer's emotional, wrenching interviews with the 'internees'... make clear the consequences of race, wartime hysteria and political expediency." —Tomio Geron, CAAMFest

Stringer, Pinky Doodle Poodle, Fat Heaven, Ubetcha - Sunnyvale
Through July 19, 2017 - New York

Pinky Doodle Poodle is a dynamic, female-fronted punk band from Tokyo, made up of bassist/vocalist Yuria and guitarist George. The band released their third studio album, "Get It On," in the summer of 2016. Fat Heaven is a Brooklyn-based garage punk trio composed of guitarist/vocalist Travis Yablon, drummer Gayla Brooks, and bassist Jack Conce. The trio runs DIY venue Moffat Heaven out of their shared basement, and released their first full-length studio album, "Tough Luck," in late 2016. Ubetcha is "an exercise in rock and roll anxiety" started by Brian Indig (Milk Dick) and Coby Chafets (Glueboy) during a fit of depression in Hastings on Hudson, New York. Live, they are joined by Kate Black (THICK) and Kerry Kallberg (Flagland). They describe their debut album, "The Piss Olympics," as "an attempt at self-realization and betterment, recorded in bursts throughout the end of 2015." It was released in April of 2017.

Skyfactor - Mercury Lounge
July 19, 2017 - New York

One listen to SKYFACTOR's SIGNAL STRENGTH and it's clear these guys know how to craft memorable and powerful "Rockoustic" songs that grab you from the get-go — and won't let go. SKYFACTOR's simple but effective melodies combine with edgy dynamics to take the listener on a ride each and every time. Formed on a rooftop in the East Village of New York City, SKYFACTOR was born when the musical paths of longtime friends Bob Ziegler and Jason Taylor (formerly of Michigan's Brother Rabbit) and brothers Jon Rubin and Cliff Rubin (formerly of NYC's Sky Blues) finally crossed. Almost instantly the songs started flowing out, and they knew they were on to something. Their debut album Daydreams received much critical acclaim and notice, including that of MTV, who chose the track "OK" as the theme song for an episode of Teen Mom, resulting in something of a hit single for the band, with many thousands of downloads and streams from around the world. Skyfactor also must have a big fan at NBC's The Voice, who used another cut from Daydreams no less than three times in the same season, including in their season finale which was seen by 14 million viewers. After the success of Daydreams, the quartet honed their musical chemistry and style on stage for the next two years before heading back into the studio to capture the group's surging energy and momentum. The result is SIGNAL STRENGTH, which represents the band in its finest form yet — thanks to personal, insightful lyrics backed by a big acoustic guitar and one very powerful rhythm section. SKYFACTOR also made a splash on satellite radio, when SiriusXM picked the band to be the subject of an exclusive live concert broadcast from New York City; and had a song from Signal Strength prominently (and humorously) featured on Adult Swim's popular Eric Andre Show. Refreshingly spare while layered with deep emotion, the band's songs have a way of becoming the latest soundtrack-to-your-life before you even realize it. Once you hear their new record — and then experience SKYFACTOR live — you'll understand what all the buzz is about.

LPR Presents: Gracie and Rachel Record Release GOLD CHILD - Union Pool
July 19, 2017 - Brooklyn

Gracie and Rachel are a study in duality: light and dark, classical training with a pop sensibility, Californians in New York. Their music pits anxiety and tension against an almost serene self-assurance. The result is a compelling juxtaposition of Gracie's piano and lead vocals and Rachel's violin and voice, augmented with stark percussion. Like their stylized color palette of black and white, their instrumentation appears simple and spare at first glance, but there's a powerful prism effect at work that brings us back to the concept of duality: their songs are intimate and expansive, questioning and confident. The nine orchestral-pop songs on 'Gracie and Rachel' (out June 23) tell a story that's rooted in the truth —their truth — but retain an enigmatic air that makes them relatable to anyone who has ever found their heart racing with doubt and pushed forward regardless. "There's a terrific tension in the sound, an underpinning of mystery set against a baroque, but modern, pop foreground." –Bob Boilen/NPR Music;old Child is a Brooklyn-based psych-folk group fronted by singer/songwriter, Emily Fehler. Fehler moved to New York after finishing her studies at Berklee College of Music. As Fehler began the process of coming up for air in Brooklyn, she developed an obsession with the music made by the great female troubadours of country music's golden era — namely the work of luminary songstresses Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris. Seduced by the raw emotion and timeless melodies of the classics, Fehler — a gifted vocalist herself — had found a new direction and sought to apply her own stamp to the form. With the addition of ethereal, shimmering atmospherics to her own folk songs, Fehler laid the groundwork for what would become Gold Child's sound. Rounded out by Jake Beal's deft, understated drums and Turner Stough's dynamic bass, Gold Child has drawn comparisons to Mazzy Star, Angel Olsen, and Neko Case. Gold Child recently released their Sophomore single, "Me And You" and is currently working on the band's debut full length, due out this fall.

Ryan Slatko Trio at Club Bonafide - Club Bonafide
July 19, 2017 - New York

Hailing from Miami, Florida, Ryan Slatko brings a fresh perspective to the idiom of jazz and the language of music. His musical journey began with his father who played guitar and introduced him to jazz/fusion artists like Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and Weather Report; and to progressive rock greats such as Genesis, Kansas, Rush, Yes, and Emerson Lake and Palmer. Slatko took up drums at 11 years old, also taking an interest in piano at 13 and eventually switching focus entirely to the latter. Slatko earned his bachelor's degree at the University of North Florida, studying under the critically acclaimed pianist Lynne Arriale. In Fall 2015, Ryan moved to New York to join the diverse music scene and to earn his master's degree at New York University. Slatko has had the privilege of studying under great artists like Don Friedman, Alan Broadbent, Ari Hoenig, Gil Goldstein, Taylor Eigsti and Kenny Werner. Slatko's achievements include placing 3rd in the 2014 Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition, and making the semifinals for the American Jazz Pianist Competition two years in a row. Slatko has performed or recorded with Rich Perry, Alex Sipiagin, Chris Potter, Tom Scott, Ulysses Owens Jr, Linda Oh, Adam Rogers, Alan Ferber and many more. Having formerly been a drummer, Ryan brings a strong rhythmic concept to everything he does, whether it be his often percussive approach to piano playing or his inventive arrangements and compositions.

Outdoor Film Night with Maysles Cinema: the Gleaners and I - Nowadays
July 19, 2017 - New York

Every Wednesday at Nowadays, we screen a film in the big back yard in conjunction with Maysles Cinema, the Harlem based film house founded by the late, great Albert Maysles. Tonight we're very excited to be presenting Agnès Varda's The Gleaners and I. Here's the scoop: Agnès Varda, Grande Dame of the French New Wave, made 2000's most acclaimed non-fiction film-a self-described "wandering-road documentary." Beginning with the famous Jean-François Millet painting of women gathering wheat left over from a harvest, she focuses her ever-seeking eye on gleaners: those who scour already-reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. Her investigation leads us from forgotten corners of the French countryside to off-hours at the green markets of Paris, following those who insist on finding a use for that which society has cast off, whether out of necessity or activism. Varda's own ruminations on her life as a filmmaker (a gleaner of sorts) give her a connection to her subjects that creates a touching human portrait that the L.A. Weekly deemed "a protest film that's part social critique, part travelogue, but always an unsentimental celebration of human resilience."

Along the way he learns that the perfect ride may well be the one we are on right now. Pioneering surf icon Tom Blake once called the ocean the blessed church of the open sky. More than any other sport, surfing embodies both a physical and spiritual quest. As a lifelong seeker, Jaimal Yogis sits at the center of that quest. His upbringing in a household that was dedicated to religious ambiguity left Yogis curious, desiring a connection with God but unsure where to find it.. Yogis' journey takes him from a monastery in Tibet to Franciscan monks in Harlem, from the warm waves of Indonesia to the foggy cold of San Francisco's Ocean Beach. What place would be more natural to search for that divine power than on a board?

From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, into the confrontational expressionism of the '60s avant-garde, Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word.

First Ladies of Disco Starring Martha Wash, Linda Clifford & Evelyn 'Champagne' King - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
July 19, 2017 - New York

First Ladies of Disco Show is inspired by author/speaker/host James Arena's tribute book "First Ladies of Disco: 32 Stars Discuss the Era and Their Singing Careers," a best seller in the United States, Canada and Europe. Three extraordinary women who have made their marks on the pop, R&B and disco charts have joined forces for the first time as First Ladies of Disco. The vocal power of this new ensemble is unsurpassed, and their style and energy meld perfectly on stage and in their debut single, "Show Some Love." Martha Wash Two-time Grammy Nominee, known for her distinctive and powerful dramatic soprano voice. Ms. Wash has been dubbed "The Queen of Clubland" due to her ongoing success in the dance music genre. Martha's fame would have made her mentor, the late disco pioneer Sylvester, proud. As a member of The Weather Girls (previously known as Two Tons of Fun), Wash achieved tremendous success with the immortal "It's Raining Men," one of dance music's all-time greatest hits. Wash also performed lead vocals on Black Box's chart-toppers "Strike It Up" and "Everybody Everybody," as well as C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. After 10 years, Martha recently returned to the Billboard Dance Charts with her hit single "I'm Not Coming Down," which reached the #2 spot topping Cher, Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga. Linda Clifford Five-time Grammy Nominee, scored numerous hits from the 1970s through the 1980s, most notably "If My Friends Could See Me Now" and "Runaway Love," the latter considered a landmark innovation in rap history. In 1980, she released a duet album with R&B legend Curtis Mayfield, The Right Combination. She recorded the popular "Shoot Your Best Shot," produced by Isaac Hayes, and the song "Red Light" for the soundtrack of the smash hit movie Fame. Both songs reached #1 on the American dance chart and enjoyed pop crossover success. Evelyn "Champagne" King Made her dramatic debut on the disco scene with 1978's Top 10 classic "Shame," taken from her Gold+ debut album, Smooth Talk. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100, R&B and Dance Charts. She enjoyed great success with "I Don't Know If It's Right," "I'm In Love" and "Love Come Down" in the years that followed, all of which cemented her esteemed ranking among prominent pop, club and R&B vocalists. Evelyn is the recipient of numerous honors throughout the world, among them the "Dance Music Hall of Fame Award" in 2004 and the "Living Legend Award" in 2007. These legendary vocalists come together to bring you one of the most talked about shows in music history. This collective of fiery songs, dynamic vocal delivery and non-stop energy makes the First Ladies of Disco Show not only a historic phenomenon, but a uniquely personal and one-of-a-kind experience.

Dan Zlotnick - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Dan Zlotnick grew up in Westchester, New York. He first picked up the guitar on his eleventh birthday and taught himself to play by watching concert DVDs of Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Bruce Springsteen. Dan's passion for writing music began in high school when he was the lead guitarist for the alternative rock group, Hot Soup, which drew inspiration from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains. Dan developed his upbeat, acoustic rock style while attending college on a baseball scholarship. He found time between practices and games to perform at coffee houses and fundraising events. After college, Dan kept his guitar in hand throughout a three-year professional baseball career, which brought him around the United States and Canada. Dan recorded his self-titled debut EP with engineer/bassist Al Hemberger and drummer James Marchionno at The Loft Recording Studios in Bronxville, NY. Dan's music is a reflection of his classic rock and blues roots with contemporary acoustic flair. His evocative lyrics, captivating melodies, and energetic performances echo the love Dan has for creating music and sharing it with those around him.

Joe Whyte - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Combining equal parts country, folk, rock and Americana, singer/songwriter JOE WHYTE's songs have been described as "alt-country pearls that shimmer with simplicity and effectiveness" and "beautifully crafted, melancholic Americana." Dubbed, "The King of NYC Americana" by music blog Twangnation, Joe's latest EP, WHEN THE DAY BREAKS, is a stripped-down, acoustic-based follow-up to his critically acclaimed full-band album, Devil in the Details. Though primarily a solo affair, Joe is joined on a few songs by band members Catherine Popper (Jack White, Grace Potter, Ryan Adams) on bass and vocals, and Dan Marcus (Ana Egge, Crescent & Frost) on guitar, dobro and mandolin. The past few years have seen Joe play during the Americana Music Conference in Nashville, be selected for the the "A Taste of Triple A" radio sampler and play the Bluebird Cafe stage on a stop of the "Country Throwdown" tour. Other highlights include playing WSM radio's stage on the historic Ryman Auditorium plaza for CMA Fest and opening dates for Jim Lauderdale, Justin Townes Earle, Darrell Scott, Alejandro Escovedo, Marty Stuart and Rosanne Cash. Over the years, Joe has also performed throughout the US, UK and Ireland with artists such as Foy Vance, Tony Joe White, Steve Forbert, Chuck Prophet, Cadillac Sky, Rod Picott, Amanda Shires, Slaid Cleaves, Lucy Kaplansky and Son Volt, to name a few. Joe is currently endorsed by Elixir strings, and was a 5-year recipient of an ASCAPlus award, a merit-based songwriting grant from ASCAP. He is entering the studio with his band this summer to begin work on the full-length follow-up to his last EP.

Ali Carter - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

With a honey toned voice, and a jazz//folk/soul inflected sound, Sydney singer and songwriter, Ali Carter weaves her stories through music that allows the magic and grace of both the pure joy, and thedeep struggle to evolve, taking the listener through a musical kaleidoscope of humanity, with passion and sincerity. With grandparents treading the boards in the Australian vaudeville theatre, singing harmonies in the kitchen with her music educator mother, and being exposed to an eclectic record collection at a young age, music was clearly in the blood, and the great love and feeling for it, ingrained early on. Ali studied music privately, from her early teens, and at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. She spent many years performing with various ensembles in a range of styles, including three productions with the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of W.A, as lead singer for Sydney funk band, Blue Inc, and her own jazz group, The Alicats. She was eventually reunited with the humble ukulele – with which she sang songs as a young girl with her grandfather – and having penned poetry and lyrics for many years, the marriage of word and music began, and the stories and experiences began morphing into songs. Ali proudly considers herself a global citizen, and was fortunate to tour in Croatia and the United Kingdom before landing in New York in 2012. And as many before her can say, her heart was brazenly taken, and she now calls Brooklyn home. Prior to relocating, Ali worked with producer and multi-instrumentalist V Jeffrey Smith (Hall and Oates, Whitney Houston, Soul Folk Experience,The Family Stand) and she recorded her debut album Songs of Longing, with New York based, English producer, Harvey Jones (Donna Lewis, Robbie Dupree, Chris Botti) As a part of a community of artists in New York, Ali also works with MC/poet Melissa Czarnik, singing backing vocals, she plays regularly around New York with her band and has a new EP underway. "Ali Carter is a sensitive and beautiful singer songwriter. So sweet and lush, her voice conjures emotions of both joy and pain. You can hear the remnants of Billie Holiday as she delivers her lyrics in a very unique and meaningful way. Yet one can also hear something that's quite like Judy Garland. She slides in and out of notes and evokes such pure emotion that it's quite captivating" -This is Not the Radio

Twisted Pine - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Full of energy and surprise, wit and subtlety, Twisted Pine has quickly become one of the most acclaimed young string bands in the Northeast. Audiences across the US and UK have been drawn to their forthright songwriting, lush harmonies, musical daring, and "charismatic appeal," to quote Grammy-winner Alison Brown. In its early days, Twisted Pine hewed pretty close to its bluegrass origins, but over time the quartet has developed a unique, infectious style without limits. Moving beyond the standard verse-chorus-solo structure of traditional string bands, Twisted Pine is a multilayered ensemble that brings the enveloping sound and pop hooks of indie music to an acoustic instrumental setting. Guitarist Rachel Sumner and fiddler Kathleen Parks share the vocal mic, forming a combination as charming as it is gutsy. Whether switching off leads or blending and bending their voices into unexpected harmonies, these front-women are a commanding presence. On her instrument, Parks is an insatiable risk-taker, seeking out exciting new improvisational territories. Mandolinist Dan Bui is a master of melody and drive, celebrated widely for his dexterous, tasteful picking. And bassist Chris Sartori holds down the low end and a lot more, introducing creative, jazz-inflected cadences that never overwhelm the beat. But while it's easy to celebrate each of the band members individually, Twisted Pine isn't just a collection of talented musicians. It's a unit that grooves together. Intricate arrangements of swelling, syncopated rhythm and precise instrumental interplay generate something big and vital: a thick landscape of sound built on an organic acoustic foundation. It's a fitting context for original songs written with equal parts passion and intelligence, adding up to music that lies at the intersection of heartrending and heart-racing. You'll find Twisted Pine on stages large and small, entertaining festivals of thousands and intimate rooms alike. Winners of the 2014 Freshgrass band competition and finalists at the 2015 Rockygrass contest, Twisted Pine has played major events from Greyfox to Green River to Glasgow's Celtic Connections and beyond. "Their live show is already legendary for the band's unbridled spirit and contagious energy," says Jim Olsen, president of the innovative folk label Signature Sounds (Lake Street Dive, Crooked Still, Joy Kills Sorrow). It's no wonder the International Bluegrass Music Association nominated Twisted Pine for its 2015 Momentum Award, which recognizes exceptional up-and-coming acts. Twisted Pine will be releasing its debut album at Green River Festival, July 14, 2017, and touring through 2017 across the United States. Check out Twisted Pine on tour and see why Olsen calls it "the most exciting new roots band to emerge from the New England scene in quite some time."

The Phoenix Within - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

The Phoenix Within is an acoustic rock project based out of Queens, NY & is fronted by singer/songwriter Omar Feliciano. Formed originally as a 4-piece band, The Phoenix Within released their self-titled debut full length in 2013. With influences ranging from Jimmy Eat World to Blink-182 to Dashboard Confessional, the album was well received and the group picked up steam. With weddings and children and life happening all around them, the group was forced to disband. It was at this point that Feliciano turned The Phoenix Within into a solo project. Armed with a new sound reminiscent of Vinnie Caruana, Ace Enders, and Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, Feliciano released a series of singles in 2014 and 2015 under The Phoenix Within moniker while touring throughout the country. In 2015, the Natalie Rose EP was released via Cry Baby Records. After spending the early part of 2016 touring, Feliciano spent the latter part of the year in the studio recording his first full length as a solo artist. Whispers will be released in early 2017 via Know Hope Records.

Jamie Kent - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Named by RollingStone.com as an "Artist You Need To Know", and dubbed a "Must Watch Artist" by The Huffington Post, one might say the future of Jamie Kent looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Will Hoge, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, Kent's perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Marc Broussard, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. He's officially endorsed by Durango Boots, Gibson Guitars, BOSE and Telefunken Microphones, and his brand new album "All American Mutt", just debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Landing in between Luke Bryan and Dolly Parton, Kent was the only independent artist to break into the Top 20.

Cameron Mitchell Album Release Show! - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Brooklyn-based singer songwriter Cameron Mitchell was raised in North Carolina and came of musical age in the 90s. He brings his past and present influences to bear in his first full album, Maspeth. This 11-song country rock record is a winding auditory journey of waltzing piano ballads, overdriven-amp rockers, and heart-felt stories echoed by the twang of pedal steel and vocals of long-time collaborator, Carrie Welling. Cameron started recording Maspeth in a self-storage unit turned DIY music studio somewhere above a hockey rink in Queens. "The first session was in January 2016 and it was freezing. The wind was howling and the mics could easily pick up the hiss of the room," he notes. Despite the conditions, the results were the foundation of a 15-month project involving nearly a dozen local artists: musicians, audio pros, and even a multi-media artist commissioned to create the album artwork. Cameron debuts Maspeth at Rockwood Music Hall on Wednesday, July 19, 2017. The album launches on iTunes and Spotify July 12.

Bandits On The Run, On The Sun, Hayes Peebles - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

On The Sun is a live band based in Brooklyn, NY creating original music influenced by soul, rock, funk, americana and psychedelia. With all members contributing as writers, arrangers, and/or producers, the group's collaborative process yields frequent new material and they are currently recording a follow up record to their self-titled LP debut. Hayes Peebles seems to be well aware of songwriting's golden rule: the sad songs sound the sweetest. After a brush with notoriety, the native New Yorker spent his college years plucking out the beginning of the tunes that appear on his latest EP, Ghosts, a record that The Wild Honey Pie writes "promises to announce a new voice in alt-country/americana." Bandits on the Run is a Brooklyn-based criminal trio, notorious for stealing hearts and serenading strangers. They first gained infamy conducting musical sticks-ups in the subways of New York City with their three part-harmony and nostalgic sensibilities. At the center of this dangerous crime ring are Roy Dodger (a.k.a. Adrian Enscoe) guitar & vocals ; Bonanza Jellyfish (a.k.a. Sydney Shepherd) cello & vocals; and "Clarissa" (a.k.a. Regina Strayhorn) percussion, xylophone, melodica & vocals. All three bring their unique voices and songwriting abilities to the table, creating a variety of sounds and styles that create a musical web of sound hard to pin down, and even harder to resist. To your ears, these whimsical criminals will sound like a nostalgic medley of old and new. Their tools are various and sundry, a motley mix of off-beat pop music covers, reworked jazz and rock standards, and originals that'll make you feel like deja vu all over again. They've amassed a collection of songs, stolen and original alike, that some say would charm the pants off of even the most callous New Yorker. But don't take our word for it, catch the Bandits in action! You may find yourself swept away, smiling in spite of yourself, slow dancing with a stranger, or even dropping a dollar into the cello case.

Will Mackie-Jenkins - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Will Mackie-Jenkins is a singer-songwriter in Chicago, IL. His debut EP Cherries in Bloom tells a narrative of departure, grieving, and seasoned love over the course of its six songs. Folk rhythms of his native Virginia are refurbished, made unique, and combined with unusual lyricism that is often simultaneously haunting and sweet. Recorded in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago during late summer/early fall of 2015, Cherries in Bloom has a curious urban sensibility to it–as if the speaker of the songs is reflecting upon a very different past life that can never be revisited, but must be made to have meaning. All music and lyrics for Cherries in Bloom were written and performed by Will Mackie-Jenkins. He played the guitars, the harmonica, the organ, the tambourine, and sang all the vocals on the EP. Derik Kendall performed violin on "Miss Virginia" and "The Dog's Song." Cherries in Bloom was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Rob Ruccia at Uptown Recording in Chicago, IL. Chan Arthur (carthur@saic.edu) painted the album's cover art. Special thanks to Derik Kendall, Lora Mackie, Warren Mackie-Jenkins, the Hewitts, Emily McGinn, and Rachel Sharp for their contributions and support throughout the process.

Jason Darling - Rockwood Music Hall
July 19, 2017 - East Village

Jason Darling grew up near Woodstock, NY, and began playing guitar at a young age. After bouncing through a next-generation Deadhead phase, Darling ended up in Greenwich Village, retracing Bob Dylan's footsteps, digging on slide guitar and folk-blues, and scraping by with handyman work at local recording studios. Casual collaborations with pal Leona Naess started paying the bills when she signed with MCA. Darling contributed guitar to 2000's Comatised and participated in the resulting world tour. In between dates he signed with L.A. indie Surprise Truck, wrote and recorded his debut album, and issued it in early 2001. Underground was a literate yet rootsy affair that showcased Darling's expressive slide guitar work. In October 2003, he returned with Night Like My Head (Yep Roc). The effort featured broader arrangements that were filled out with keys and drum programming, and drew comparisons to the work of Shawn Mullins and Jeb Loy Nichols. Darling supported the album with numerous dates, mostly on the East Coast.

Girls Night Out w/ Sean Sharp, DLO plus Special Guests - Webster Hall
July 20, 2017 -

Special Guests (Urban) Sean Sharp (Dance) Dj Sean Sharp began his djing career while he was still a student at Wesleyan University in CT. One day his Fraternity brother Smokey Fontaine showed up at school with a pair of Gemini turntables and a mixer. Sean and Smoke would spend countless hours practicing in their dorm room, blending and cutting up all of the records that they were able to borrow from the school's radio station. The duo soon began booking gigs on campus and eventually started getting booked at many of the neighboring colleges. After Wesleyan, Sean moved to New York to work as an intern at the Village Voice. In the city he once again hooked up with his partner Smokey and they began doing small parties and venues across the city. The pair hosted a weekly industry event at the Buddha Bar in the West Village. While working as a DJ, Sean continued to pursue his writing career. Sean has written numerous cover stories and features for various music magazines including Vibe, The Source, America Magazine and many others. One day out of the blue, Smoke and Sean got a call from the owners of Webster Hall to play in the basement (which is now known as The Studio) for a weekend. Due to the overwhelming crowd response from their appearance, the owners offered the pair a weekly residency at the venue. The Basement Party was born, and quickly became one of the most popular Hip-Hop parties in the city. When Smoke left to take an editorial position at a magazine, Sean kept the party going and eventually brought on DJ DLO, one of the greatest voices in NYC nightlife, as his new partner. Known for their high energy sets, Sean and DLO have played music in every room of Webster Hall and continue to be one of the club's prime attractions. Sean takes pride in his ability to mix various genres of music into a seamless blend of sonic goodness that keeps the dance floors packed with an eclectic group of people from around the world. DLo (Dance) Enrique Dexter Johnson also known as DJ D.L.O has been a resident DJ here at the legendary Webster Hall for fourteen years. His passion was always to become a DJ, so at the age of fifteen he started fulfilling his dream. Being that he started at a young age, he did not take it seriously until he seen a very close friend of his play at a house party. To see him control a huge crowd by mixing records and talking on the microphone really inspired Enrique more. As years went by, his close friend known as DJ Storm gave him an oppurtunity to open up for him at an event. The crowd loved what he did and was very responsive. Not long after being an opening DJ for DJ Storm, DJ D.L.O and DJ Storm became partners and would DJ at many different venues such as Club Quest, Club Visionz, Nocturnal, and Secrets. The clubs mentioned were all located in Staten Island New York. DJ D.L.O began to branch out more and started djaying at well known venues in NYC such as Club Ivy, Downtime, Secret lounge, T.O.N.Y, and Cheetah night club. In his recent years, he has worked with DJ's such as Funk Flex, Mister Cee, DJ Enuff, DJ Camilo, and Red Alert. Enrique also known as DJ D.L.O would like to give special thanks to these legendary disc jockeys; Dj Red Alert, Chuck Chillout, Kid Capri, Mr Magic, and Grandmaster Flash for inspiring him to be the great DJ he is today!

For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band. The group's distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as "Tuff Enuff" and "Wrap It Up". Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation. "We started as a straight blues band", vocalist and harmonica player Wilson says. "We now incorporate a mixture of a lot of different styles. We're an American music band and we're much higher energy than we were before." In addition to Wilson, the current Thunderbirds line-up features Jay Moeller on drums, Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller on guitar, and Randy Bermudes on bass. In 1979, The Fabulous Thunderbirds released their first self-titled album. Primarily blues influenced, it became a cult classic. "Things were wide open back then," Wilson recalls. "There were hundreds of stages where bands could show what they had." "The thing about the T-Birds is that we can play both blues festival and rock venues," Wilson comments. "We're a diversified band now and everybody's on the same page." The Fabulous Thunderbirds >> The Fabulous Thunderbirds @ Facebook >>

Grand Ole Opera Concert Series - Pioneer Works
July 20, 2017 - Red Hook

Pioneer Works is pleased to present Grand Ole Opera, a performative exhibition by Tennessee-born artists Willie Stewart and Brent Stewart. This post-modern opera marks the Stewarts' institutional debut in the United States. In 1944, country music star Bob Wills appalled purists when he insisted on performing his set with drums at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. Drums marked an iconoclastic break with tradition which threatened the hallowed "Home of American Music." Inspired by Wills, the Stewarts' Grand Ole Opera stages immersive theatrical installations that recreate their Southern heritage and childhood experiences, paying homage while complicating and transgressing the clichés of the American South.

Benefit Concert: Conor Oberst w/ special guests Hop Along / Big Thief - BRIC
July 20, 2017 - Brooklyn

Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, Conor Oberst was an indie rock prodigy whose confessional singer/songwriter style and distinct trembling voice quickly wooed the college radio station listeners of the 90s.

Nearly 20 years later and with many projects and albums under his belt, the now indie veteran Oberst continues to remain at the top of fans' playlists. Following up on the 2016 album Ruminations, which Rolling Stone called a "refreshing renewal of the anxiety-ridden intimacy that marked his earliest work," Oberst just announced a companion album titled Salutations which will be out on on Nonesuch Records on March 17, 2017.

Concerts in the Catacombs - Green-Wood
July 20, 2017 - Greenwood Heights

In the heart of Green-Wood, a simple, iron gate leads into an underground structure few people ever see. Rarely open to the public, the Catacombs – built in the 1850s – are one of the cemetery's most unknown spaces. They offered 19th-century New Yorkers an above-ground burial option, which proved to be very popular for those who feared being buried alive. In the 21st-century, musicians love the unmatched acoustic quality of this unique studio of stone. Join Atlas Obscura and Green-Wood for the premiere of a series of curated concerts featuring artists specially selected to perform in this coveted setting. Without question, this will be New York City's most unique musical experience.

Through July 20, 2017 -

Is a picture really worth a thousand words? PAINTING FAYE SALVEZ is a new musical about the family and friends of Faye Salvez, a teenage girl who's been missing for three years. Faye's mother, in an attempt to save her crumbling marriage, has commissioned an artist to paint a family portrait. This artist insists on interviewing Faye's loved ones in an effort to truthfully capture her in the painting. When tensions build and memories clash, the family is faced with the question: is it the responsibility of an artist to present the truth, even if it's not what an audience wants to see?

Tank and the Bangas + Sweet Crude - Brooklyn Bowl
July 20, 2017 - Brooklyn

Originating in New Orleans, Tank and The Bangas have all the qualities that relates them, to the city that birth them but a flair that separates them as well. Their performances range from being "One of the most energetic shows you'll ever see" to "A gospel tent in Mississippi". Rummaging through their sound like a thrift store hippie, you'll find the Bangas to provoke a musical reference of Rhythmic Soul and Spoken word among other genres such as Rock, Gospel, Funk, and Folk. Combining the various musical techniques among the Bangas, coupled with the instilling play on lyrics from the lead vocalist; Tank and The Bangas have quilted a unique sound that singles them as one of the most distinctive groups to come out of New Orleans. The group has graced the cover of one of New Orleans most recognized magazines, "OffBeat" and recently won band of the year at the New Orleans Big Easy Awards. The group has opened for acts such as LiAnne LaHavas, PJ Morton, Galactic, Big Freedia, The Revivalist, and The Soul Rebels. Most recently the band was titled as the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest winners. "Sweet Crude is an extremely exciting new group with haunting and mesmerizing vocals sung in Louisiana French and English." -PopMatters "Whether you speak English, Cajun French, both or neither, this is genuinely enjoyable music that breaks language barriers. If you're a fan of many-membered pop ensembles like The Polyphonic Spree or The Most Serene Republic, you may very well dig these guys too." -Brooklyn Vegan Louisiana bilingual pop project Sweet Crude is a young 6-piece composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana's native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 5-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks. "We're making the quirky, energetic compositions that we'd otherwise come up with given our indie rock influences. We've got five people playing drums, we've got everybody singing, shouting, and dancing. We're just singing a lot of the time in Louisiana French. We want to show that the language is still alive and kicking, and that it sounds great in any genre," says primary lyricist Sam Craft. Sweet Crude debuted in Spring 2013 and have hit the ground running. Music from their EP Super Vilaine can be heard in FX's American Horror Story and the band has been receiving generous amounts of plays nationally and internationally on public, satellite and internet radio, especially in Francophone areas. Sweet Crude has tested their frenetic sound on the road, packing venues from New Orleans to New York. Additionally, the band has been making the festival circuit throughout North America. Sweet Crude's debut LP Cre?atures comes out in the Spring of 2017.

Bang on a Can - The Jewish Museum
July 20, 2017 - New York

Performance by Kaki King Scheuer Auditorium The William Petschek Family Music Program Join us for a performance by the distinctive and exceptional indie-guitarist Kaki King. Much like Florine Stettheimer, who created her own individual universe through her unique sensibilities and playful imagery as demonstrated in the exhibition Florine Stettheimer: Painting Poetry, King uses extended techniques to create her own musical universe outside the mainstream. About the Performer Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto herself," Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist Kaki King has released 8 albums over the past 13 years, performed multiple world tours, and has presented her work in a variety of prestigious arts centers, including the Kennedy Center, MoMA, LACMA and The Met. She has created music for numerous film and TV soundtracks, including "August Rush" and Sean Penn's "Into the Wild", for which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score. Her latest work, "The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body," is King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. In addition to her own solo work, King has collaborated with NYC-based string quartet ETHEL, and has performed at Carnegie Hall, premiering a classical piece commissioned by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang. In April 2017, Kaki will record her first full-length album with symphony orchestra, commissioned by the Berklee College of Music.

Ages and Ages, Skyway Man - Mercury Lounge
July 20, 2017 - New York

If Ages and Ages' debut album Alright You Restless declared independence from the cynicism and self-consciousness plaguing a generation; and the follow-up Divisionary was an exercise in confronting change, conflict, and loss; Something to Ruin addresses the debris of our collective failures and asks whether we might be better off letting go and starting over. Recorded at Isaac Brock's studio (Ice Cream Party), the band's fourth album is still full of their infectious and joyful melodies while also reflecting on several serious existential themes. Early on in the writing process of this record, band leaders Tim Perry and Rob Oberdorfer traveled to Central America and visited indigenous ruins partly engulfed by surrounding forests – a tangible reminder of the impermanence of human civilization and the resilience of nature. Back at home in Portland, Oregon, their community was being engulfed by something entirely different. Like so many other cities around the country, rapid growth and development were changing both its landscape and culture. Something to Ruin came out of this reflection, exploring what it's like to watch your surroundings implode in a frenzy of real estate development and lifestyle branding. Songs like "Kick Me Out" and "My Cold Reflection" describe an existence where almost everything is monetized and loses it's meaning. The album's first track "They Want More," deals with the struggle to live an honest life in this type of superficial cultural landscape. To set the stage for this narrative, Tim and Rob embraced synthetic sounds and artificial textures– a marked difference from the organic and documentarian approach on their previous albums. The record is also more groove-laden, with electronic experimentation pushed to the surface. Tim's vocal melodies and the richly layered harmonies of Sarah Riddle, Annie Bethancourt, Colin Jenkins and Oberdorfer mirror themes about the power (and impotence) of the individual and the need for community. Isaac Brock's unmistakable, marbled baritone and guitar jumps out on "So Hazy" and traces of old Modest Mouse can also be heard in the discordant and mechanical noises that bubble to the surface on the album's title track and "All of My Enemies." If there is an anthem on Something to Ruin comparable to "No Nostalgia" and "Divisionary (Do the Right Thing)," it resides in the album's final track "As It Is" which contains the trademark exultant vocals that endear the band to its fans. What's most perplexing about Ages and Ages is their ability to address themes of isolation, obscurity, and rejection of the well-paved path while still infusing their songs with an infectious hope and earnestness that brings even the most cynical listener into the fold. It could be why President Obama felt compelled to add their song to his personal reelection campaign playlist, or a high school choir in Burkina Faso posted a video of them singing an Ages song, and why NPR claims their music "could actually change your life." Skyway Man: An Introduction to the Wide World of James Wallace & Folk Futurism "He says the sun came out last night. He says it sang to him." ? Project Leader, Close Encounters of the Third Kind "If you are not a myth whose reality are you? If you are not a reality whose myth are you?" ? Sun Ra, Prophetika Book One For the last decade, James Wallace & the Naked Light recorded and released music from the fringes of Music City USA, touring all over with a singular vision and purpose. All the while, James Wallace's name figured in as a trusted companion to a few scenes in particular: the Spacebomb sound coming out of his hometown Richmond, Virginia alongside old friends Natalie Prass and Matthew E. White; inside the new Nashville "underground:" where his bands' magnetic performance listed them as a favorite among Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard; producing records, occasionally filling in on keys with cult-treasured Promised Land Sound; and roaming with the Oakland collective of songwriters centered around a converted school bus who travel under the banner "Splendor All Around." But now the name is Skyway Man. Solo tours in Japan and China, a new batch of songs intertwined with his fascination with UFO religion, signaled a shift in direction. His inner mercury nudged him toward a new role, and the name Skyway Man rose to the surface again and again. Was it the trickster of mythology, the soul of some eternally missing astronaut, or the old singing storyteller trying to get through? Wallace possesses a knack for getting caught up in outlandish events - discovering a trove of mysterious letters written by a Ufologist to a woman, describing the New Jerusalem and the 4th dimension, or months spent playing Mahjong in a smokey trailer behind Opryland, working as a Mandarin interpreter for Chinese Ice carvers in Nashville. This knack also extends to orchestrating outlandish events, getting interesting people on board in his endeavors–sweet-talking the flow of life into altering its course. Time for a new name and new record. Seen Comin' From a Mighty Eye is a dense undertaking, recorded in different locations, simmering influences, channeling all the correct energies, paying the people and spirits who need to be paid, finishing the work the right way over the slow course of time. He recorded the last Naked Light record in Matthew E. White's attic, and returned to that revered spot to track this new psych opera about strange futures, haunted pasts, and the Mighty Eye in the sky. Spacebomb house bassist and composer Cameron Ralston provided the horn arrangements and Spacebomb house drummer Pinson Chanselle sat at the kit. Wallace sang, compiled and mixed back in Nashville. It's the usual stew of B-movie scifi, cosmic American boogie, psychedelic folk and it's apocalyptically good, focused and potent, an immersive fully realized song cycle and visionary sonic structure.

Loose Buttons Atlas Engine - Mercury Lounge
July 20, 2017 - New York

If 'Is This It' and 'Sound of Silver' were bread slices, the four guys in Loose Buttons became real people-ish in about the salami part of the equation. A troupe of native New Yorkers (well we actually feel bad lying to you, one of us is from Connecticut), the quartet were struck by the energy buzzing around The Big Apple at some point in their early adolescent years and channeled that inspiration into strumming the guitar/plucking the bass/banging the drumset…blah, blah, blah, typical band bio stuff. Either way, we've been together for a couple of years and have played around New York City and Miami a lot. Three of us went to college in Miami to pursue careers as dubstep DJs but eventually returned to our roots of indie rock and roll. So here we are. Pleasure to make your acquaintance.Incorporating the intricate layers and harmonies of Local Natives with Tame Impala-inspired falsettos and soaring melodies reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Brooklyn's Atlas Engine bends and blends genres into its own distinctive mix of indie, pop, and rock. "Skillfully crafted…stunning melodies" - AudioFemme "Invokes a feeling of transience with a...rolling, adventurous vibe" - The Wild Honey Pie "Spectacular. Beautiful. Entrancing." - Impose Magazine

Guns N' Hoses - Bowery Ballroom
July 20, 2017 - New York

Welcome to the Vajungle! Voted 'Best Tribute Band' by the Village Voice, Guns N' Hoses is a veritable supergroup of the city's hottest internationally touring musicians. They break hearts and a few jaws every show with the raucous rock of classic GNR. Slash and Duff McKagan happened to drop in on one of their rehearsals the day before their sold-out show at LA's Viper Room and said "You girls sound like our mirror." Slash later tweeted "Sounded pretty tight, I have to say…Cool chicks." New England Music News writes: "The Hoses are not a tribute band that sound just like the original. They are not a collection of eye-candy, thrown together that can just kinda-sorta play instruments. They are not hipster smartasses mocking the over-the-top silliness of the original. They are a talented band that really appreciates the original GNR sound, and has fun with it. Any cover band would have simply played the hits. GNH dug into the riffs, from the funky bass of Mr Brownstone, to the crying Les Paul of Sweet Child of Mine." The ladies have been touring and traveling a bunch, just playing India this past September. This show will be their FIRST back in NYC all year! So throw on those Cheetah pants and don't miss out!

Bobby Spellman's Revenge of the Cool Nonet - Club Bonafide
July 20, 2017 - New York

Initially assembled in 2012 to perform the timeless classics from the Birth of the Cool, Bobby Spellman's Revenge of the Cool Nonet has evolved into a vehicle for the colorful 21st century compositions of its members and collaborators. Based on the unconventional instrumentation originally conceived in Gil Evans's basement apartment in the 1940's, the nonet continues to perform compositions and arrangements by John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan, and Gil Evans, as well as re-arrangements of the classic large ensemble collaborations between Evans and Miles Davis. The group also fosters new compositions by trumpeter Bobby Spellman and his collaborators, who strive to explore and expand the possibilities of Miles's instrumentation in a modern context. In particular, the group serves as an outlet for swinging and adventurous new music based on Spellman's in-depth study of George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization.

July 20, 2017 - Washington,

Join us for an underground look into a Tudor Place the public never sees. Walk below one of the most historic buildings in Georgetown on this rare tour into the tunnels and trapdoors of Tudor Place.

Designed by the architect of the capitol (and the Octagon House) William Thornton, the house stayed in the family until 1983, when it was deeded over to the Tudor Place Foundation. It's one of America's last intact urban estates from the Federal Era. Join Atlas Obscura Society DC for an exclusive underground, behind-closed-doors investigation of Tudor Place. Highlights will include: a fallout shelter constructed by owner Armistead Peter 3rd during the height of the Cold War, the so-called "dungeon," the kitchen's trapdoors, and other hidden spaces under this 5.5-acre property. Plus, we will join the spirits of Tudor Place in enjoying wine and light snacks in the Conservatory & Garden.

Fantastic Planet (With Live Electronic Score!) - Videology Bar & Cinema
July 20, 2017 - New York

Featuring a new, electronic score performed by Adrianna "Gooddroid" Moschides! The film will be presented without sound or subtitles. Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director René Laloux's animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags' oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

Teaching Visual Literacy Through Photography, Grades 6 – 12 - Aperture Gallery and Bookstore
Through July 20, 2017 - New York

This July, we are offering a four-session professional development course through ASPDP for New York City Educators. To register for this class, please visit the ASPDP website. Please note, you must register through ASPDP in order to receive P-credit for the course. Registration ends July 10. Dates: July 11, 13, 18, and 20th (This is one class that meets four times) Course Description: Aperture On Sight visual literacy trainer Alice Proujansky — a professional photographer and trained arts educator — will lead educators through adapting Aperture's twenty-session visual literacy and photography curriculum to their students' needs. Participants will decode and encode images, learning how to interpret photographs using flexible, engaging inquiry techniques that make material accessible to students. The curriculum has been successfully tested with a wide range of students, including English Language Learners, college-bound art students, and sixth graders with no previous experience. Using readings from Visual Thinking Strategies, Responsive Classroom, Paulo Freire, and Paul Berger, we will understand the ways that images communicate, how students can infuse their own photographs with meaning, and ways to move beyond art history lectures toward truly thoughtful interpretative conversations that encourage students to make personal connections with visual imagery. Participants will do several of Aperture's hands-on photography and photobook-making lessons, using cameras and visual games to understand the student experience. Educators will practice leading image interpretation conversations with students, overcoming technical concerns, and photobook-making. The trainer will also observe and give feedback on visual literacy teaching. Topics include Collaborative Portraiture, Different Kinds of Truth, Metaphor, Context Case Study, and Mind Mapping.

A Tool for Justice - Queens Museum
July 20, 2017 - New York

Fútbol as a Social Arena The role of sports as a social tool is marked by the ways in which athletes challenge the structure of the game through their own representation within and beyond the field. This conversation, focusing on fútbol, aims to expand upon how the game is a critical and aesthetic tool that links indigenous heritage with current social issues. Moderated by Marcela Guerrero, Assistant Curator at The Whitney Museum of American Art, and referencing the work of Betty Bastidas, director of Dreamtown and Ronny Quevedo's exhibition no hay medio tiempo / there is no halftime, the panel investigates a cultural tradition inherited from the past that cuts across several temporalities in the Americas as well as diverse local histories, which in Ecuador includes its African diaspora and immigration to new territories. Following the panel Betty Bastida's film Dreamtown will be screened as part of Passport Thursdays: International Dance, Music, and Film Series. Moderator: Marcela Guerrero Panelists: Betty Bastidas and Ronny Quevedo Betty Bastidas is an award-winning filmmaker, photographer and media educator based in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Ecuador, came to the US at the age of nine. She uses filmmaking and photography as social tools to celebrate the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Most recently, she completed her first international soccer feature, Dreamtown, following the precarious dream of a young Afro-Ecuadorian soccer player, Anibal Chala, as he strives to make it to the professional leagues, and over the span of six years sees his dreams become reality. Other credits include a commissioned short film for ITVS Latino Graduates called Can't Hold Me Back, following Fernando, a Latino youth from Detroit as he becomes the first in his family to earn a high school diploma. This story aired on PBS Independent Lens in 2013 and was selected to be part of the PBS Online Film Festival. She is the co-founder of a multicultural production company called Maracuya Productions focusing on stories of injustice and inspiration for underrepresented communities in the US and abroad. Her work has garnered numerous awards, including 2013 and 2008 NALAC Fund for the Arts, NALIP/HBO Film Grant, Post-production grant from the CNCINE Ecuador, New York Women in Film & Television In-kind grant, NYFA Photography Fellowship, and Brooklyn Council of the Arts Community Grant. She is a graduate of the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and is based in Brooklyn, NY. Marcela Guerrero is Assistant Curator at The Whitney Museum of American Art. From 2014 to 2017 she worked as Curatorial Fellow at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles where she had a hand in curating—with Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Andrea Giunta—the upcoming Hammer exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985, for the Getty Foundation's initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. Prior to her tenure at the Hammer, she worked in the Latin American and Latino art department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where she served as research coordinator for the International Center for the Arts of the Americas. She has also written for a variety of arts publications, such as ArtNexus, Caribbean Intransit: The Arts Journal, and Gulf Coast: A Journal of Literature and Fine Arts. Guerrero holds a PhD in art history from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Ronny Quevedo is a recipient of the 2016 Queens Museum/Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists. He was recently awarded a 2017 A Blade of Grass Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art and a Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellowship.

As Fashion Director and Chief Fashion Critic for the New York Times, Vanessa Friedman is a leading voice in fashion, reporting on the seasonal runway shows, the work of designers, and what celebrities are wearing. In contrast to authorities who have declared that fashion is "dead," Friedman has described our current era as one of "fashionization." What are we to make of this conundrum—the conception, on the one hand, that fashion is dead, and on the other, that fashion is a driving force in how we view the world? Organized in conjunction with MAD's exhibition fashion after Fashion, this program features a conversation between Friedman and exhibition curator Hazel Clark about the contemporary state of fashion and where it might go next. Hazel Clark is Professor of Design Studies and Fashion Studies at Parsons School of Design, The New School, New York, where she is currently Research Chair of Fashion. Building on a degree in Fine Arts and a PhD in Design History, her scholarship has focused on uncovering new perspectives, cultures, and geographies for the study of fashion and design internationally. Her collaborative publications include Old Clothes, New Looks: Second-Hand Fashion (2005), The Fabric of Cultures: Fashion, Identity, and Globalization (2009), Design Studies: A Reader (2009), Fashion and Everyday Life: London and New York (2017), and the forthcoming Fashion Curating: Critical Practice in the Museum and Beyond. She has served as a professional consultant and a media fashion expert. Vanessa Friedman was named Fashion Director and Chief Fashion Critic for the New York Times in March 2014. In this role, she leads global fashion coverage for both the New York Times and International New York Times on all platforms. Before joining the paper, Friedman was the inaugural Fashion Editor of the Financial Times, beginning in 2003. Along with editing the Style pages and the Luxury 360 vertical, she wrote a weekly column for the Saturday FT and created the FT's annual Business of Luxury conference. The former Fashion Features Director for InStyle UK, she also worked as a Fashion Correspondent for the FT, as an Arts Contributor at The Economist, and as the European Editor at American Elle. In addition, she contributed regularly to Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and Entertainment Weekly.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds Feat. Kim Wilson - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
July 20, 2017 - New York

For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band. The group's distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as "Tuff Enuff" and "Wrap It Up". Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation. "We started as a straight blues band", vocalist and harmonica player Wilson says. "We now incorporate a mixture of a lot of different styles. We're an American music band and we're much higher energy than we were before." In addition to Wilson, the current Thunderbirds line-up features Jay Moeller on drums, Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller on guitar, and Randy Bermudes on bass. In 1979, The Fabulous Thunderbirds released their first self-titled album. Primarily blues influenced, it became a cult classic. "Things were wide open back then," Wilson recalls. "There were hundreds of stages where bands could show what they had." "The thing about the T-Birds is that we can play both blues festival and rock venues," Wilson comments. "We're a diversified band now and everybody's on the same page.

Jenn Summers - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

New York City singer/songwriter Jenn Summers has been busy since she signed with indie label Noble Steed Music and enjoyed the successful release of her first full-length album, When Live Gives You Lemons. The charming, chipper debut put her on the map as a bright, sunny East Coast answer to the surf-shack music that so typically comes from California or Hawaii - The Beach Boys, Jack Johnson, and Colbie Caillat, to name a few. "Most people are shocked when they find out I'm from New York," Summers laughs. "Based on my music, you'd think I'm from a beach town." With its cheerful, jangly ukulele, simple acoustic arrangements, and upbeat lyrics, Catching Fireflies is a thematic continuation of When Life Gives You Lemons, and serves as yet another personal reminder from Summers that with the right attitude, any challenge can be defeated. "I went through a very painful breakup over the past year, and writing the songs on this album really got me through it," Summers explains. In fact, Summers' favorite song on the album is the title track, "Catching Fireflies" – with its buoyant, sanguine melody, you'd never know it was a breakup song. Fittingly, Summers caught the concept like lightening in a jar when she was watching fireflies in Washington Square Park on an August New York night. "I had been struggling with writing an uplifting breakup song that had the same quirky feel as 'When Life Gives You Lemons, Make L.O.V.E "Jenn explains. "And then 'Catching Fireflies' came to me." 2014 is already looking like it could be Summers' breakout year. The petite ukulelist is gearing up for a CD release show at Rockwood Music Hall on June 18, filling up her calendar with dates in beach towns across the country, and making plans for a potential music video for the album's title track. But the accomplishment Summers is most proud of? "Playing live in New York City. A lot of people take it for granted, but the fact that I'm able to get up there and perform is something I never thought I'd be able to do." With her sweet voice and winsome songs, Summers won't just be "Catching Fireflies" - she'll be catching the ears and hearts of listeners around the world.

ESS SEE - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

ESS SEE (Sarah Cobb) was raised in Arkansas, and now calls Brooklyn home. For years, she spent her daylight hours at a desk job, and her nights crafting addictive melodies from the privacy of her bedroom. All those nights added up to something: a sultry, vibey brand of pop that's "kind of like BANKS raised on Nirvana or Sonic Youth." (Crack in the Road) With an impressive range of vocals, and bold lyrics that explore themes of identity, intimacy, and individuality, ESS SEE is a breath of fresh air—both onstage and off. ESS SEE received an "Honorable Mention" award for her song "Touch Me" in the 2016 International Songwriting Competition in the Performance category. Her debut EP, "Ordinary Woman," was released on January 13, 2017 and is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music and Google Play.

Morningbird - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

Morningbird is a five-piece alternative rock band hailing from various parts of the world that came together in Boston, MA. Its two founding members, Max Challis and John Cattini, met each other during a summer music program finding common ground in their musical tastes. Over the course of the program, they played lots of music together with mutual friends, but the real friendship formed when Max borrowed John's acoustic guitar for a performance at the end of the program; John's guitar had an input jack and Max's didn't. The rest of the band met as college freshmen in 2013. The five were all placed on the same dorm floor and their friendship grew over the years working together on various projects and extracurricular activities, but the whole band didn't come together until much later. John and Max formally founded Morningbird in the summer of 2014 with a couple of bedroom recording sessions that became their debut self-titled EP (released October 2015). As the two continued to grow musically, they kept writing and recording. After a year of writing, recording, producing, and mixing, they finished "Only Believe In Love", their first full-length album, still having never played a live set together. Now that they had an album, Morningbird needed some more members in order to perform their full productions on stage. Max and John brought together their closest friends – Isak Kotecki, Connor Frawley, and Ian Ho – and the five-piece band was formed in Fall 2016. Despite everyone's varying geographical backgrounds (including Canada, the UK, Singapore, and various US locations), the band connected with one another from the beginning and began performing. Morningbird was picked up by C3 management in November 2016 and has since played around the Northeast and continue to hone their sound.

missyou - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

Missyou is a New York based rock band that has toured nationally and played extensively on the east coast for the past year. The band came together with a vision to create music they could stand behind with an emphasis on story telling -- "The songs are what matter to us." Currently they are busy in the studio, writing and recording new material. Blaise Beyhand, who fronts the band, has produced, filmed and created the music videos for the released tracks, "Yourbody" and "Anything." Influence is pulled from a broad spectrum of music, as well as classic film and visual arts. The band believes that every picture and sound they create is a part of a broader story... "Music brings you back or forward in time, the journey can be trying, and music can be your wings or your anchor. We just want to be a part of that evolution. We hope to see you soon. Until then, we will miss you."

I Am Snow Angel - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

I AM SNOW ANGEL fuses digital and organic elements, resulting in a sound that is both ethereal and earthly. The music is composed, performed, produced and engineered by recording artist Julie Kathryn. I AM SNOW ANGEL will be unveiling material from her forthcoming record. She has been featured by the Huffington Post, Indie Shuffle, Magnetic Mag, Creem Magazine, Refinery 29, All Things Go and many more for her "fluorescent beats and emotionally charged melodies." A self?sufficient artist, I AM SNOW ANGEL is a co?founder of Female Frequency, a musical collective that is dedicated to empowering women and girls in the music industry. --- " She puts on one of the finest electronic solo shows I have ever seen: she plays Push, keyboard and guitar. And she sings, of course, with her wonderfully restrained and seductive voice." – Glamglare "The eclectic nature of the music of I AM SNOW ANGEL is staggering. She owns the writing, production and engineering process, much like GRIMES, and is a pioneer when it comes to helping women make their own tunes, whatever genre they may be… She was, after all, made to give life to the melancholy of electro. The style of electronica infused with country roots, creates an amalgamation difficult to resist." – The Electricity Club

Sophie Auster - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

Sophie Auster released her self-titled debut under the French label Naïve when she was only 18 years old. While still at Sarah Lawrence College, Sophie toured and played festivals across Europe and South America on her school vacations. Then in 2007, Sophie appeared on the cover of Spanish Rolling Stone. Since then she's been featured in Vogue, Elle, Les InRocks, Spin, Glamour, Paris Match, Rolling Stone, Velvet, Paper, Nylon, Porter, and was spotlighted as one of W Magazine's rising young stars. In 2012, "Red Weather" was released as an EP. The music highlights her visceral vocals and heart-wrenching lyrics. "Sophie Auster is not the kind of singer likely to come up too often. Like a cross between Fiona Apple's righteous rage and Gillian Welch's homespun folk yarns, wrapped up in some of the most alluring, seductive torch songs you're liable to find..."(Mike Levine, The Deli). As always, Sophie writes her own music. Sophie's 2015 full-length album, "Dogs and Men" has been praised by The New York Times for its "sultry, folksy vocals" and W Magazine called it "soaring." John Osburn of the acclaimed music blog, Obsburt raves: "Each song was a realization, and a high point. Her voice is relentessly surprising. She fills up lyrics like balloons, every word a bubble of meaning." "Next Time" the forthcoming album by Sophie Auster, produced by Tore Johansson, (New Order, Franz Ferdinand, The Cardigans, Martha Wainwright) shows a more evolved sound from the songstress. Harkening back to 60s girl groups, Peggy Lee, and 70's soul, "Next Time" brings the sounds of Auster's childhood to the present day. "The album is a reflection of moving on and getting back up again. Sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but the thread that ties the work together is the idea that next time I'll be better. Next time I'll learn from my mistakes", says Sophie. Through an introduction by friend and fellow songwriter, Nicole Atkins, Johansson and Auster began working together in the Swedish countryside over the past year. Delving through dozens of songs written by Auster, Johansson and musical partner Martin Gjerstad, worked on arranging the selected material with Sophie. The process has culminated into Auster's strongest work yet.

Peter's catalogue of recorded works as both a guitarist and producer, for recording artists on major and independent labels, is extensive and includes a wealth of musical genres, earning him accolades from national reviewers as a 'globally minded musician.'

"A masterful guitarist" , quotes Boston Globe, and a visionary composer, producer, and recording artist in his own right, Peter's CDs "Cowboy Song", "Wired to the Moon", "Cape Ann" highlight his exceptional songwriting, vocals and arranging and have been acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. Two previously released tribute recordings on a separate label, "Here Comes the Sun" (The Beatles) and "Peaceful Easy Feeling" (The Eagles), still prove to be very popular and well received.

Arian Saleh - Rockwood Music Hall
July 20, 2017 - East Village

Though Arian Saleh began playing all over Los Angeles in 2009, music has been a part of Arian Saleh's life from the beginning. The grandson of Monir Vakili, Iran's First Lady of Opera, and the son of acclaimed recording artist ZaZa, Saleh's unique sound is deeply rooted in a troubadour tradition and has a heavy emphasis on lyrics and melody, with nods to gypsy, tango, and electronic music. In late 2009 he met with the Wizardz of Oz and began work on what would become his fist recording, "The Cobblestone EP". This defining group of songs went on to gain great audience and critical response, sending him around the country playing shows. While on tour in New York, Saleh teamed up with virtuoso cellist Dave Eggar and luminary drummer Chuck Palmer and the three began playing and touring extensively as a trio. They, together with DJ/Producer Chuck Wild (Captain Planet) recorded and recently released Saleh's first full length album, Undone. The music video for the single "Underhill" premiered on The Huffington Post and the album itself has been described "like coming in and out of different worlds of music, guided by an incredible voice" and heralded as "one of the best out-of-left-field releases of 2013". Continuing the album's praise, "Open Your Mind Let Me Out" has been nominated for an Independent Music Award. Following Undone, Saleh released his second full-length album Antoinette on January 20, 2017 and reached #1 on the Merging Arts World Music Chart on March 14, 2017. The 10-track album advances his signature alternative-world sound, combining Gypsy, Middle Eastern and Western sensibilities to create a wholly distinctive collection of songs. Antoinette boldly weaves together the dark and hopeful to examine complexthemes of shifting identity, cultural appropriation, romance, and the inextricable link between promise and despair. The album was again recorded at the renowned Carriage House Studios in Connecticut and produced by Eggar and Palmer. It features a number of internationally acclaimed musicians andinstrumentalists, creating a unique energy and sense of place. Saleh has also founded The Libretto Project and works as a composer scoring films and commercials. Currently residing in Brooklyn, he continues to play all over the country, writing music that carves through many genres and influences, asking more questions than it answers.

The Cosmic Coronas - Rocks Off
July 21, 2017 - New York

They didn't know it at the time, but for years the members of The Cosmic Coronas were on an inevitable collision course toward the creation of the ultimate rock, punk and funk musical experience. The brilliance of the Cosmic Coronas is the result of a mashup between The Fabulous Rhinos and The SuffTown Traffic Jam. The Rhinos were founded by Brad Widolok, Noah Nielsen, Kevin Gayson and Tom Taubes in the winter of 2014 after a number of successful jams in New York City's Euphoria Studios. Brad's thick guitar leads layered on top of Noah's overdriven grooves and Kevin's smooth acoustic accompaniment formed the ideal foundation for a powerful band. Brad and Noah immediately went to work writing original songs that built upon the classic sounds of their favorite artists of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s to bring rock and roll into the 21st Century. The Rhinos expanded its sound by adding Dan Raiani on bass guitar and Nick Brucaliere on drums--two friends from Suffern, New York who have been performing together for over a decade in a dynamic duo known as the Sufftown Traffic Jam. Dan and Nick brought a technical proficiency and a steady rhythm to anchor the newly formed Cosmic Coronas and expand the possibility of their frequent jams. When the time came to take The Cosmic Coronas to the next level, Dan and Nick reached out to another SuffTown native, Alexa Lindberg, who they knew had the powerful pipes to round out this formidable ensemble. From the first moment Alexa sang with the Coronas, it was obvious that she was the final piece to the puzzle. The Cosmic Coronas, being fans of The Ramones, decided to drop their birth-given surnames and embrace the sonic spirituality of becoming a Corona. Since then, Alexa Corona, Brad Corona, Dan Corona, Kevin Corona, Nick Corona and Noah Corona have been building a loyal following called Corona Nation. As much musical brothers as bandmates, Eugene Gardner and Daniel Tyler have been collaborating for over a decade, since their early teens. The duo's distinct style of Americana songwriting and performance drew the attention of Marc Jaffee, who committed to them as producer, manager, and record label, culminating in the release of the group's debut album, Eugene Tyler Band. They then hit the road as an acoustic duo to support the album, bringing powerful performances to a variety of music venues around the northeast, such as B.B. King's Blues Club, Rockwood Music Hall and Nectar's Lounge. Eugene Tyler Band is presently bringing their classic songwriting and guitar interplay to both new and established audiences, in the hopes of giving everyone who sees them a show to remember, and a song worth singing.

July 21, 2017 - New York

Katie Welsh returns to Feinstein's/54 Below in her brand new show, The Evolution of the Broadway Musical Heroine. In this evening of song, Katie travels through the decades, from the 1940s to the 2010s, on a quest to understand how Broadway's leading ladies have changed over time. For example, what makes a Rodgers & Hammerstein heroine different from a Sondheim heroine? How do our favorite female characters navigate the world of relationships in similar and different ways? Katie considers these questions as she sings songs from a range of beloved musicals, including Oklahoma!, South Pacific, Bells Are Ringing, Anyone Can Whistle, Sweet Charity, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, and many more.

Matt Cusson - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

Matt Cusson, an award-winning singer/songwriter and pianist, continues to wow audiences and prove that he is the real deal. He is a gifted self-taught musician who excels in jazz, pop, singer/songwriter and soul, as demonstrated by his expert writing and arranging skills on his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album of 2009. That same year, Matt won (by unanimous vote) the John Lennon Songwriting Contest's top annual prize - the Maxell Song of the Year - for his jazz ballad "One of Those Nights". That song also won the Billboard Songwriting Award in the Best Jazz Song category, and came in second in the International Songwriting Competition, as well as being nominated for a 2011 Los Angeles Music Award for "Best Male Vocalist" and "Best Jazz Song". In 2013 Matt was also a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition with his lullaby, "Once Upon A Time". Matt attended Berklee College of Music, where he performed in the exclusive "Singer Showcase", which highlights the school's top eight singers. He cites many musical influences, such as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Rufus Wainwright, Djavan, Miles Davis, and John Mayer, just to name a few. Even more impressive is the list of artists he has performed with, including Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, the Roots, Babyface, Christina Aguilera, India Arie, Boyz II Men, Paulina Rubio, BeBe Winans, Joe, Jon B, Livingston Taylor, and many others. More recently, Matt has been working and touring with his mentor and friend, Brian McKnight, star of Broadway and TV, Megan Hilty, 5 time Grammy award winner, Cee Lo Green, and Javier Colon, winner of the first season of "The Voice". Matt has also played, sung, written, produced and arranged for countless artists and continues to find a large portion of his work in the recording studio. Matt is a three-time "Amateur Night at The Apollo" winner, and has a long list of television shows that he has made appearances on, including "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "The View", "Rachael Ray Show, "Live with Kelly and Michael", "Live with Regis and Kelly", "The Brian McKnight Show", "Christmas in Rockefeller Center", and "Millionaire Matchmaker". He was also a regular as the "one man band" and also a musical guest on VH1's, "Big Morning Buzz Live" with Nick Lachey, where he co-wrote and arranged several bumps and songs for the show. He was a featured performer on the international "Michael Jackson - Man In The Mirror" tour in 2010. Matt's current single, "Leaving L.A." is receiving rave reviews and being played all over the world. His 2012 Christmas EP, "It's Christmas Time", is a regular play on Sirius XM Radio and numerous radio stations during the holiday season. His sophomore album, "Only Human", is now available on iTunes, Amazon and everywhere else you buy/stream music online. "You can tell right away when Matt starts playing that he is the real thing." – James Taylor "Matt has an incredible gift." – Brian McKnight "Matt Cusson is honestly one of the most talented musicians I've ever met. When I heard him live for the first time, I was blown away not only by how well he sang and played, but how easy he makes it seem. I became an instant fan. There are a lot of artists out there, but few even come close to the amount of talent he has. He combines Jazz, R&B, Pop like nobody I know. He's so good he makes you want to go home and practice your scales. If you haven't had a chance to hear Matt, you're missing out on a world class artist." - Javier Colon, Universal Records and winner of NBC's "The Voice"

Spuyten Duyvil w/ Deer Scout - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

"The Social Music Hour Vol. 1" nominated for The Intentional Folk Music Awards Album Of The Year - Jan 2016 "These immensely talented, well-schooled musicians deserve to be heard far and wide – they restoreth thy soul." - Elmore Magazine "Raucous Roots..." - The New York Times Seeing a Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE+vul") show for the first time is like "throwing a cherry bomb into a lake" (Rich Warren, WFMT). It wakes you up. Their brand of original and traditional American Roots music blends Olde Time, Blues, 2nd Line, Bluegrass, and Folk Rock with a pinch of Punk Rock energy to create a uniquely modern mix. Lead by song-writing couple, Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, this six piece powerhouse brings barn burning energy to venues from California to the Sea of Galilee. "This is as close to a musical "Come to Jesus" moment as you'll get outside the gospel roots of the deep south. Yonkers, NY based Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music. Historians, outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today." - The Alternate Root TV "One of the best bands to emerge on the Americana music scene in the last year" -John Platt, WFUV *** Deer Scout - Bedroom indie folk pop project of Dena Miller based in Philly / NYC.

Erin and Her Cello - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

"Sounds like Blossom Dearie fronting They Might Be Giants" (The Philadelphia Enquirer) "…the standout of the night is clearly Erin and her Cello – an NYC babe with a spunky personality and crystal clear voice who can rock a cello like it's a Stratocaster guitar."—philly.com. Erin and Her Cello have been charming audiences with their quirky, vivacious, and undeniably unique (Strings Magazine) performances all over the east coast. From Joe's Pub to BAM, Rockwood Music Hall to World Café Live, this kooky songstress, her stringed soul mate-- and her incredible six member ensemble-- simply cannot be confined to one musical genre. Their latest album, "Petits Bisous" packs a delightful retro punch -- playfully melding 50's/60's doo wop, surf rock, jazz, funk, and french pop. In addition, the winner of Stand Up NY's "Music is a Joke" contest, and darling of the downtown comedy scene, underscores every song with deft wit. The trick is--you really do need to see Erin and her Cello LIVE. There is simply no act that marries great music and hilarious lyrics the way that Erin and her Cello do. All that--and you won't be able to stop smiling too. "Erin is using her experiences and distinctive sense of humor to create a type of performance art that almost defies description." Anna Bengel, Backstage.com. "Erin is a hilarious chick with a sense of humor as finely tuned as her cello… she wields her bow with the same wit and saavy that a satirist wields his pen!"--Doug Wright, playwright, 2004 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Drama "If you've never heard of Erin and Her Cello, you're missing out on some of the funniest stuff out there. Seriously, I almost spit my beer out of my nose and onto my camera-- twice." Chris Owyoung, www.onelouderphoto.com

Regret The Hour - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

Comprised of brothers Nate McCarthy (lead vox/guitar) and Ben McCarthy (lead guitar) with childhood friend Anders Fleming (drums), and recent addition Tim Emmerick (bass), Regret the Hour cut their teeth playing live in New York City and their hometown of Nyack, New York before even finishing high school. By their senior year the band amassed tens of thousands of plays on YouTube fueled by their DIY demos and air-tight live show. This grass roots support funded their first full-length record, "Better Days," which they tracked in a now demolished plastics warehouse. Tragically, during those recording sessions, the band lost their beloved friend and bassist, Jesse Yanko, to stage-four soft tissue cancer at the age of 16. After a period of mourning the band released "Better Days" in 2013. With the help of a few temporary bassists, they resumed live shows with a renewed vigor and half of the proceeds from record sales have since gone to cancer research. Following their freshman year of college, the band returned to the studio to record their upcoming EP, "The Far and the Near." For the sessions they connected with engineer D. James Goodwin (Kaki King, Devo, Norah Jones, the Bravery) and arranger/orchestrator/bassist Sammy Oatts (Hudson Hank, Jesus on the Mainline, James Levy and the Blood Red Rose, Guy Berryman of Coldplay). In those sessions, the band crafted an artistic statement that shows their profound growth into adulthood. Regret The Hour's sound swirls with chiming guitar melodies reminiscent of early U2, and a heavy, yet subtle rhythm section gaining frequent comparisons to The National and The War on Drugs. The band's energy and reputation as a live act has earned them packed nights at NYC's finest venues, including Music Hall of Williamsburg, Rough Trade, Mercury Lounge, and the Gramercy Theatre, as well as appearances alongside punk legends The Misfits, rock n' roll hall of famer Dave Mason, and indie pop sensation Best Coast. The band is currently working on a new, full length record in Brooklyn, NY.

Alright Gandhi - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

Alright Gandhi has chosen some things that are unconventional in pop music: complexity, silence inside the pulse, improvisation and choruses that mutate into sound-scapes and new songs. The result is a one-time unframed live explosion. You are urged to change, move, reflect, relate. It's hard to pin Alright Gandhi to a genre. The group play their instruments as three distinctive and emotionally charged characters. Rosa writes the skeletons of songs on bass guitar and performs the lead vocals with freedom frequently compared to Joni Mitchell (on acid) or Haitus Kaiyote. The songs are brightened and derailed by Pietro's guitar painting, with influences ranging from Senegalese Music and Led Zeppelin to outer space. Dominick's drumming and presence are one and the same: full of pep, drive and agility. There is no excess to the music, all three members of the band are playing finely balanced solos that interweave and accentuate the other. Alright Gandhi formed in Berlin 2014. Rosa Mercedes (UK), Pietro Fornara (IT) and later Dominick Gray (US) met in the city characterised by its love of experimentation and recklessness. Kalle Enkelmann (DE) recorded their first EP Widening Circles (2015), and a year later the full-length album Little Traveller (2016) infused with pop, polyrhythm and storytelling. They are currently finishing the second album, which captures raw live performance in a stone house in the mountains of Liguria. The release is planned for later this year; expect warmth and outlandish imagery, like an analogue photograph of your great-aunt's runaway trip to the South.

The Brother Brothers - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

The Brother Brothers based out of Brooklyn NY, twin brothers Adam and David Moss are a musical duo unlike most others. Brooklyn based fiddler and songster Adam Moss' musical career can most easily be characterized by the variance of his influence. Adam loves and plays in the Klezmer, Bluegrass, Old-time and swing traditions which lends itself to a very unique and innovative style in performance setting. He is actively touring with Boston's Session Americana, Brooklyns The Defibulators, Ana Egge, and has formerly toured with Anais Mitchell's "Hadestown," and Texas' 3 Redneck Tenors. Originally from Peoria, IL, David Moss began his musical journey playing cello and singing in various formats from a very young age. After receiving a degree in cello performance from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), he moved to Austin, TX in 2007 where he immediately formed with the trio The Blue Hit. There, David attended the Kerrville Folk Festival, and before long was playing guitar and writing songs. By the summer 2011 he was a finalist in the prestigious New Folk competition and went on to become a winner. On his album "Bag of Bones" which was released in 2010, David has a gruff voice as a result of a Granuloma on his vocal chords. In November 2012, however he underwent surgery and has rejoined with his old and original vocal timbre. He is currently living in Brooklyn, NY and performing his songs in various formats with his twin brother Adam Moss and continuing his cello career playing and composing with The Blue Hit as well as groups such as the Satellite Ballet, Moishe Circus, The Broken Stares, Ana Egge, Roy Williams and The Human Hands and many others. David released his album "Songs for Willoughby" in March 2014, and his breakout hit "Jerusalem" was featured on Democracy Now! in July 2014.

Jason Shand - Rockwood Music Hall
July 21, 2017 - East Village

"The air is fresh up here I'll say, I can do anything, it's a view on a clear day," Jason Shand sings on 'X-Factor', one of his songs from his just-released debut full-length CD Because of Zeeva. Those lines carry a lot of weight for the singer-songwriter who had spent the better part of a decade underground finding his own individual style and sound. Having previously fronted an alternative rock band in Boston, Jason made a conscious decision to leave the band and Boston to pursue a solo career in his hometown of NYC. This pursuit and the finding of his sonic palate has been a long road traveled, but well worth it with the release of Zeeva. Jason's art rock sound is a unique brand of progressive/adult contemporary pop: a musical concoction that draws from the 80s, 90s, the present, and beyond. "Because of Zeeva is an art rock album, and it is everything that I wanted it to be. I dip into rock, dance, techno, folk, alternative - I show all my influences and it all fits together - I am ecstatic! My goal, when making this album, was to maintain artistic integrity yet at the same time, be commercially viable. It's a tight rope to walk and I think I achieved it." -Jason Shand Jason's many influences include Peter Gabriel, Dido, Seal, Annie Lennox, Coldplay, Crowded House, Radiohead, NLX, and U2. The lead singles off of Because of Zeeva will be 'Crumble', 'Triggers', and 'You Tell Me': https://soundcloud.com/jason-shand/03-crumble https://soundcloud.com/jason-shand/04-triggers https://soundcloud.com/jason-shand/10-you-tell-me Crumble video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfiyjfmzvBo Triggers lyric video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6o_7vewBAo

Particle - Cutting Room
July 21, 2017 - New York

Particle began its journey in Los Angeles in 2000 as one of the key pioneers of the emerging 'livetronica' music scene. The band created a signature sound that combined elements of Electronica, Funk and Rock with a heavy emphasis on improvisation and sonic exploration, and their influence can still be felt and heard in many of today's top touring Jam and EDM/Funk bands. Always striving to think outside the box and create unique concert experiences, Particle paired their high-energy dance music with cutting-edge multimedia production, thematic special events, and epic marathon sets that quickly developed a loyal fan base of Particle People spanning genre lines from jam to EDM. Particle went on to perform in eight different countries and headline venues coast-to-coast, from the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles to Irving Plaza in New York City. The band has also been a staple at major U.S. festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, ACL Festival and Lollapalooza. Particle is led by keyboardist/songwriter, Steve Molitz, whose innovative approach to keyboards and improvisational music has made him a mainstay on the national music scene since he first founded the band fourteen years ago. Well-known for programming and playing vintage keyboards and analog synthesizers, Molitz appeared at the inaugural Moogfest (A Tribute to Bob Moog), and was later tapped to help design Moog's Little Phatty synthesizer. Molitz has also toured, recorded and performed with a wide range of artists, including: Phil Lesh (Grateful Dead), Robby Krieger (The Doors), Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes), G Love and Special Sauce, Tricky, Eve, The Allman Brothers Band, and many more. Particle's first studio album, Launchpad (2004), was produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters) and received critical praise and exclusive coverage from mainstream news outlets, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and CNN. The band's double-live CD and DVD Transformations: Live (2006) was produced by Shout Factory and featured guest performances by Joe Satriani, Robby Krieger, Blackalicious, and DJ Logic. In late 2006, Particle went on a semi-hiatus, as they cut down to less than 20 shows per year to accommodate the band's changing family and work situations. During this time, Molitz began a long run of touring and recording with other high-profile artists, and composing music for video games and film. The band's semi-hiatus lasted until 2014, when Molitz felt the overwhelming desire to relaunch Particle as a full-time band. For years he'd been listening to fans remind him of classic performances ("I was there!") and ask when the band would finally return to the road again. So along with guitarist Ben Combe, bassist Clay Parnell, and drummer Brandon Draper, Molitz has officially returned to touring full-time with Particle, and to continuing the band's ever-evolving journey…

Grand Ole Opera Concert Series - Pioneer Works
July 21, 2017 - Red Hook

Pioneer Works is pleased to present Grand Ole Opera, a performative exhibition by Tennessee-born artists Willie Stewart and Brent Stewart. This post-modern opera marks the Stewarts' institutional debut in the United States. In 1944, country music star Bob Wills appalled purists when he insisted on performing his set with drums at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. Drums marked an iconoclastic break with tradition which threatened the hallowed "Home of American Music." Inspired by Wills, the Stewarts' Grand Ole Opera stages immersive theatrical installations that recreate their Southern heritage and childhood experiences, paying homage while complicating and transgressing the clichés of the American South. June 11: Angel Deradoorian at Second Sunday June 23: Lightning Bolt July 7: Wolf Eyes, Jackie Lynn, Dreamcrusher July 14: Sleep July 15: Sleep July 19: Fushitsusha July 20: Fushitsusha July 21: Hank Wood and the Hammerheads July 28: Bob Bellerue, Pedestrian Deposit July 29: The Body, Author & Punisher, Moor Mother

Early Elton performing 'Madman Across The Water' in its entirety, plus a set of favorites! - City Winery
July 21, 2017 - New York

As the story goes, Elton's label didn't have the funds to send him out to tour the US with a full band, yet Elton needed to promote his imminent releases. Having decided on Dee and Nigel, Elton then rearranged the songs and vocals to fit within the limitations of his new lineup. Suddenly, a new sound emerged that was both raw and poignant. While Jeff, John and Rich have painstakingly scoured the net for rare video, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton's Trio Period, they blur the line slightly between replication and innovation -- while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and energy from those early tours. The Gospel/Funk of "Take Me To The Pilot", the soulful storytelling of "Levon" and "Amoreena", the epic-sounding "Burn Down The Mission", the countrified "Country Comfort" and the grand scale of "Madman Across The Water" are just a few of the fantastic chapters that make up the Early Elton song book. The band has also been known to perform Tumbleweed Connection and the live concert, 11 - 17 - 70, in their entireties. Early Elton is dedicated to continuing the spirit of this period—arguably, his finest in terms of material, production and performance.

Teiichi: Battle of Supreme High - Japan Society
July 21, 2017 - New York

FEATURE SLATE U.S. PREMIERE Teiichi Akaba (Masaki Suda) has a singular dream: to crush the competition, become prime minister and rule his own country. But first he just has to get through high school. An absurdist satire of Japan's elitist pathways to the seats of power, Akira Nagai's adaptation of Usamaru Furuya's manga finds Showa-era blue-blooded teens battling for the student council presidency. Sabotage, bribery, ritual suicide, fisticuffs and more than a few unspoken crushes charge the boys' all out warfare, revealing the failures of hierarchical power systems and toxic masculinity. This achingly relevant, hilarious tale comes to a head when a working-class pro-democracy challenger questions the plutocrats' factional wrangle and Teiichi is forced to recall the pure passion that drove him to his totalitarian bloodthirst. 2017. 118 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Akira Nagai. With Masaki Suda, Shuhei Nomura, Ryoma Takeuchi, Shotaro Mamiya, Jun Shison. "The boys [...] represent real-life types in Japanese politics, where gilded elites rule and factions engage in Byzantine intrigues and double-crosses, just as their fathers and forefathers did." —Mark Schilling, The Japan Times

Foujita - Japan Society
July 21, 2017 - New York

FEATURE SLATE U.S. PREMIERE Introduction and Q&A with star Joe Odagiri French and Japanese, modernist and traditionalist, artist and propagandist—Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita lived a life surpassing contradictions. Born in Tokyo, Foujita moved to Paris in 1913 at the age of 27 where he achieved fame for his nudes and cat paintings, befriending luminary contemporaries such as Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. By 1933 he returned to an increasingly nationalistic Japan and contributed militaristic art that promoted imperialistic expansion. This masterful, elliptical biopic by director Kohei Oguri (Muddy River, The Sting of Death) features a career highlight performance by Joe Odagiri, who perfectly conjures Foujita's eccentric appearance and mannerisms, illuminating the complicated artist's roaring desires and fluid ethical center amidst the excesses of bohemian life and bleak ambiguities of war. 2015. 126 min. Blu-ray, in French and Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kohei Oguri. With Joe Odagiri, Miki Nakatani, Ana Girardot, Angèle Humeau, Marie Kremer. World Premiere, 2016 Tokyo International Film Festival.

Following the show, she released her self-titled debut EP which is available on iTunes. Erin has also opened for notable acts including Third Eye Blind and Adam Lambert. She continues to give back as an Ambassador of Hope for The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, an organization fighting the disease that took her fathers life in 2011.

During the airing of the show yahoo.com exclusively premiered her new single "Out of the Darkness" chronicling her struggle with depression and self discovery. At the Live Finale Erin lost an astonishing 87 Pounds and the following day billboard.com exclusively premiered the music video for her single.

Bassel & The Supernaturals Bassel & The Supernaturals combines neo-soul and funk with captivating lyrics about love, loss, and a war in Syria that has affected Bassel Almadani's family along with 10,000,000 others. The soulful Syrian-American vocalist and his ensemble raised over $11,000 during the preorder campaign for their full-length album, Elements (2017), with over $3,000 in donations for humanitarian aid in Syria. They were also featured in the nationally-acclaimed SXSW showcase *ContraBanned: #MusicUnites* featuring artists from the diaspora of the countries targeted by the travel ban. In addition to performing in clubs and festivals across the nation, Bassel partners with universities and charity organizations nationwide to host seminars, workshops, and benefit concerts drawing attention to the crisis in Syria. Bassel Almadani doesn't want audiences to just have a good time getting down at shows. He wants fans to leave Bassel & the Supernaturals shows with a sense of connection and, perhaps, new political awareness. The bandleader of the contemplative indie-funk ensemble is first-generation Syrian-American and has been using the band's shows and releases to benefit humanitarian efforts in war-torn Syria." - Jessica Hopper Born in Manhattan and raised in West New York, NJ, Googie is a genuine product of the East Coast. He is known for his quick, articulate delivery of witticisms and his ability to stand out on any production style. While reminiscent of classic rappers such as Redman and Big L, Googie brings his own unique flavor, drawing upon his experiences and the creative community around him. Part of the dynamic, Queens-based hip-hop crew, the Karma Kids, Googie stands out as a smooth, relatable emcee amongst the chaos. On his most recent project, "'Tis What 'Tis," Googie carries his listener through his own personal journeys, elucidating his experiences as a kid from Jersey, a hungry emcee finding his voice, and a young adult traveling a city where he's made his home. Featuring production from Blockhead, Headtrip, Samurai Banana, Red Dirt The Illusionist and more, as well as guest verses from Warren S. Britt, Premrock, and the Karma Kids, "'Tis What 'Tis" is a collection of carefully selected sounds and narratives that encompass Googie's attitude and lifestyle.

How to Suffer Better - 59E59 Theaters
Through July 21, 2017 - New York

Amanda Erin Miller presents HOW TO SUFFER BETTER Written & performed by AMANDA MILLER Celeste reads a Snapple bottle cap "Real fact":"We can't stop ourselves from suffering, but we can learn how to suffer better" shortly after discovering her fianc� having sex with her best friend in a bar bathroom! Though devastated, the Snapple quote intrigues and irritates, resulting in Celeste's quest to determine what it means to suffer better. Seeking out fellow sufferers to help her decode the factoid: a homeless man with a split personality, an octogenarian who invented a dating app, a mute maid longing for love, a clown enduring a bureaucratic nightmare, and an angry teen who threw a rock at Donald Trump's head, she asks which character is suffering best? It's up to you to decide.

Anatomical Illustrations' from the Rare Book Room at the New York Academy of Medicine - Atlas Obscura
July 21, 2017 - New York

Discover the fascinating history of medicine's depictions of the human body through the New York Academy of Medicine's rich collection. During this intimate daytime session inside the New York Academy of Medicine's beautiful rare book room, we'll be guided by two stewards as we look through a selection of curious historic anatomical illustrations. Perusing these books, you'll discover that the first full-scale attempts to illustrate the human body began in the 16th century and featured skeletons and partially dissected figures. Many of these, sometimes called "muscle men" and "flayed men," were very beautiful. Many of these depictions, innovative in their presentation of bones and muscle groups, were concerned not only with accuracy, but also with the nature of death. We'll explore the ways in which shifting attitudes towards the body and the development of new technologies, including printing techniques, photography, and x-ray, changed the way artists rendered anatomy over time.

American Cool: Straw Dogs - Videology Bar & Cinema
July 21, 2017 - New York

"Straw Dogs may be the purest statement on violence in Peckinpah's career, with implications so disturbing that critic Pauline Kael once famously dubbed it 'a fascist classic.'" – The A.V. Club "Sitting through Peckinpah's controversial classic is not unlike watching a lit fuse make its slow, inexorable way toward its combustible destination—the taut build-up is as shocking and vicious as its fiery conclusion is inevitable." – Slant Magazine "Straw Dogs is overwhelming and, in the end, thought provoking because even through violence, nothing is solved. Nothing is easy. And, like the best Peckinpah, it forces you (and force is the right word) to look within yourself, to ask questions." – Kim Morgan, The New Beverly David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman), a mild-mannered academic from the United States, marries Amy (Susan George), an Englishwoman. In order to escape a hectic stateside lifestyle, David and his wife relocate to the small town in rural Cornwall where Amy was raised. There, David is ostracized by the brutish men of the village, including Amy's old flame, Charlie (Del Henney). Eventually, the taunts escalate…

Back Yard Listening with Amanda Colbenson - Nowadays
July 21, 2017 - New York

Every Friday and Saturday night at Nowadays, we invite one of our favorite vinyl selectors down to pull out their dream back yard barbecue set to make the vibe right while you have a drink, grab a bite, play ping pong, lie in the grass or all of the above. Bringing the tunes to the back yard this evening is Amanda Colbenson. We've known Amanda since her days at Other Music. Her long term spot behind the counter at that hallowed musical institution is enough to make us want to listen to her entire collection, but Amanda's work at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair and with Ghostly has added even more dimension. She's got an extensive knowledge of rare soul, pop and rock, and we're looking forward to hearing it all this evening.

Over their almost decade-and-a-half career, multi-faceted rock minimalists The Kills have released only four records, each one a restless, reckless enigmatic art statement that bristled with tension, anxiety, sex, unstudied cool and winking ennui. Yet not one of them sounded like the previous one. "In an effort to not repeat ourselves, the path of least resistance has never been ours. Change is uneasy. Art should be uneasy," says Alison Mosshart, sitting at a long wooden table in her rented house above Los Angeles' Griffith Park, where she's been residing for a month, right next door to her musical partner Jamie Hince.

A Phish After-Party W/ the Motet - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill
July 21, 2017 - New York

The future of funk is clear on The Motet's new self-released studio album, Totem, which hits streets July 8, 2016. The 12 tracks on Totem, all originals, cover a lot of ground stylistically while never losing sight of the groove. Produced by Lettuce and Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno, Totem was written collectively by the seven members of the band. Each song is steeped in The Motet's signature style that slaps you in the face with sounds that are fresh and unique. The recent addition of singer Lyle Divinsky, who joined the band in early 2016, fans the flames of this already hot band. His sinfully soulful voice and rich lyrics are powerfully prevalent throughout Totem. "There was a month and a half between the time I joined the band and when we went into the studio," explains Divinsky. "I wound up writing the lyrics and melodies to four songs, and re-wrote the lyrics to two. It gave me and the band an opportunity to really connect musically. We're deeply proud of this album and it's very exciting to have this new material to push out as we begin this next phase of The Motet's journey." The brilliance of The Motet is that they do not mimic bands of the past, but rather create new, authentic sounds in a language from the past. One might explain the difference like the process of writing a poem in Old English or Aramaic: first, you have to learn the language by digging into the past, then you can express yourself in the present - and say anything you want - using that language. No matter how you choose to express funk, you can't fake it - and you sure as hell can't play it - if you don't know where to find it. Just how did The Motet find the funk? Simply put, they dissected it. "We have put together funk-themed Halloween shows for the past fifteen years, where we pay tribute to a particular artist or play a `Mixtape' set of music culled from a certain year," shares Dave Watts. The Motet are Lyle Divinsky (vocals), Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (keyboards), Garrett Sayers (bass), Ryan Jalbert (guitar), Gabriel Mervine (trumpet), and Drew Sayers (saxophone).

Hilary Knight's Stage Struck World - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Café
Through July 22, 2017 - Manhattan

Hilary Knight was born stage-struck, ninety years ago. Best known as the illustrator of the American classic Eloise, he cites the performing arts as the single greatest influence on his life and career. As a child, Knight was fascinated by the circus and could not get enough of Broadway. His artist parents introduced him to musicals with Jumbo in 1935. His early theatrical influences were Ethel Merman in Red, Hot and Blue; Gertrude Lawrence in Lady in the Dark; and the sensational Carmen Miranda in The Streets of Paris. The movies were another source of inspiration and obsession. Designer Adrian's extravagant costumes for The Great Ziegfeld (1936) mesmerized him; child star Sabu in Elephant Boy (1937) became a hero. After studying at the Art Students' League with Reginald Marsh, and then a stint in the US Navy in World War II, Knight designed sets under the exacting eye of the legendary George Abbott at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine. Eloise became a national and international bestseller in the 1950's, and Knight's children's book career took off with titles such as Where's Wallace, and The Circus is Coming! Yet his work in the theater continued with iconic Broadway posters, including No, No, Nanette, Irene, Half a Sixpence, and the burlesque musical Sugar Babies, starring Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, among many others. Now for the first time, Hilary Knight's stage-struck life is the subject of a comprehensive exhibition that includes original artwork for posters; theatrical illustrations for Vanity Fair magazine (where Knight is a contributing editor); Knight's most recent work — three-dimensional portraits in stage-like settings — and costume and set designs for performances and revues that reveal that for Hilary Knight, all the world is indeed a stage.

Through July 22, 2017 - New York

Daredevil feats combine with poetic sensibility in this "heart-stopping" new piece (Le Progrès) from renowned French circus collective Compagnie XY. In this collaboration with choreographer Loïc Touzé, the 22 acrobats of XY reflect on the ways in which humanity deals with instability and imbalance. With its uniquely rhythmic and expressive brand of physical theater, the troupe draws not only gasps of wonder from the crowd, but also meaning and beauty from the ephemeral arrangements that appear and vanish as they catapult through the air. Skillful bodies in motion evoke the full range of human experience, from the uplift and weightlessness of euphoria to the inevitable fall and a new beginning. The sum of it all is an awe-inspiring experience for audiences of all ages.

While I Was Waiting - Lincoln Center Festival
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

Digging into the story of one middle-class Damascus family, the celebrated Syrian team of playwright Mohammad Al Attar and director Omar Abusaada offer a gripping portrait of a country trapped in a gray area between hope and despair. Brutally beaten at a checkpoint, 30-year-old Taim is admitted to the hospital in a coma. As his loved ones gather around him, they must face a reality defined by uncertainty and absence. What happened to Taim? Will he ever wake up? How has their vibrant, modern city become so strange and cruel? Unable to communicate, Taim lingers on the stage, an observer and commentator, as long-buried secrets and complicated relationships are revealed. Inspired by a true story, the play weaves together different layers of consciousness, humanizing the situation in Syria and collapsing the distance between the Syrian people and the rest of the world.

Subotnick - Lincoln Center Festival

Morton Subotnick, one of the most inventive minds in music, performs works that bookend 50 continuous years of avant-garde vision. Subotnick presides over his onstage studio, revisiting his 1967 technological and artistic masterpiece Silver Apples of the Moon live. A crucial milestone in electronic music, Silver Apples of the Moon was instantly iconic when it was released by Nonesuch Records 50 years ago, influencing generations of artists, including Paul McCartney, Kraftwerk, and Daft Punk. Then, out of complete darkness emerges Crowds and Power, a media tone poem for voice, electronic sound, and live imagery inspired by Elias Canetti's troubling and eternally relevant book. Intrepid vocalist Joan La Barbara—a champion of the avant-garde —performs the central character and Berlin-based artist Lillevan provides a live visual environment in this world premiere performance.

"The live sound of Jane's Great Dane creates some of the best tunes you'll hear North of Dixie. With the combined sound of all members - including a booming horn section, tender mandolin, and rustic washboard - Jane's Great Dane is the musical equivalent of a sizzling plate of jambalaya, and their vigor and eagerness to entertain only adds an extra Cajun kick. There's a reason that some of the group's members have played with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Bo Diddley." -Victoria Wasylak

Neil Davis - Rockwood Music Hall
July 22, 2017 - East Village

Born and raised in New York, Neil Davis is a pop-rock singer/songwriter with an undeniable talent and passion for music. Influenced by the city's rich culture, authentic edge, and relevant music scene, Davis has been conquering the music industry for nearly a half decade and creating quite the 'buzz' while doing so. His self-written debut album 'In My Mind' has already gained major attention via independent radio and national television exposure for his single 'SMILE' - which has been placed on NBC's Today Show in 2013. Davis has been promoting his music throughout the country while making a name for himself amongst music industry insiders who are calling him "radio ready." Neil's talent was discovered at an early age after receiving a toy keyboard for Christmas as a toddler, fating music as his first language. After many self-taught years on the piano, Neil continued to develop his talent while attending the Frank Sinatra High School for the Arts in Queens NY, founded by entertainer Tony Bennett. Since then, he has had the opportunity to collaborate with many of his favorite musicians as well as the opportunity to open for the Dave Matthews Band. Neil has also performed on major television networks including MTV and CBS, and has had the privilege of singing infront of iconic figures including Nelson Mandela, Tony Bennett, and Britney Spears. Neil's passion and work in music surpasses the stage-lights. In 2012, Davis joined the professional artist roster at NYC based arts organization, 'Sing For Hope,' where he volunteers to bring the healing powers of music to hospital bedsides and under-served schools. "Music has been extremely therapeutic throughout my life, so to be able to give back and share that with others is completely rewarding." In 2011, Neil released his debut album "In My Mind", which includes the perfect combination of piano driven pop songs, and raspy rock vocals. His catchy, yet soul-filled songs tell personal stories about life, love, heartbreak, and hope. The self-written LP is available through iTunes, amazon-mp3, CDBaby and is now streaming on Pandora Radio & Spotify. Neil's brand new single 'SEE YOU AGAIN' hit iTunes on May 20nd, 2014. A compelling music video for the song is also now available on YOUTUBE. Through years of practice, persistence, and performing, Neil has managed to maintain an extremely upbeat, positive attitude about his career. "Even though the pursuit of music can be extremely frustrating at times, when you have a natural desire to do something, it's unavoidable," he says. "If someone wants it bad enough, their passion and drive will get them there. For me, nothing can get in the way."

Madisons - Rockwood Music Hall
July 22, 2017 - East Village

"They call themselves garage-folk, but that's the Madisons underestimating themselves. After two releases featuring a rotating cast of characters, they've settled into a septet of fiddles, trumpets, guitars, and percussion that's ramshackle in all the right places. No One's Ever Gonna Know Your Name purports the tale of a young Mexican named Sal, whose childhood can best be described as poor, and who then enlists in the Army, battles alcoholism, and endures a pair of divorces before finding love and happiness. All in the span of 10 songs. The breadth of sound conveying this evokes Alejandro Escovedo, the songs filled with Southwestern imagery rooted in a wide swath of Texas rock, country, and none of the above. The swaggering alt.country of "Bar Stool" and the heartrending acoustic ramble "Melissa" are among the high points of a collection best appreciated whole." - Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle

"18-year-old vocalist and guitarist Hannah Wicklund who delivers melodies and styles from multiple genres with both expert precision and original adventurism...it's astonishing how they achieve such a mature rock sound on their 2015 self-title album,"wrote Modern Rock Review's Ric Albano. Now inNashville, Tennessee, Wicklund, guitarist, pianist, singer and songwriteris accompanied on stage by bass and drums. Wicklund's signature curls flying through the air transport back to the time of the first female rock star, Janis Joplin. Capturing the old soul of a new generation, Wicklund's singing voice and guitar playing haveearned her comparisons to blues/soul musician Susan Tedeschi. With the band'smusicalinfluences from Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Jeff Beck, Wicklund'sclassic rock look get fans listening, but her guitar skills keep them wanting more."I remember the first time I saw Nirvana in 1990 in a small club in Jax Beach with a handful of long hairs and shoe gazers. I will never forget that night, but I was more blown away tonight by Hannah than by Kurt. She is a monster talent and her trio iscool as shit. Tonight was one of those once in a life time moments when you catch a superstar on the way up. Please support her so everyone elsewho plays guitar can retire,"said Josh Talbot, Nashville native.

Mad Kings - Rockwood Music Hall
July 22, 2017 - East Village

Power Trip is the lead off single to Mad Kings much anticipated EP Throne Room. Throne room is an adrenaline rush of original rock material produced by Tony Shimkin (Nine Inch Nails, Paul McCartney) and Grammy award winning Engineer John Seymour (Santana, Chris Whitley, TSO). It will be released worldwide on Noble Media early in 2015 Mad Kings approach both their recordings and live concerts with a bang. The music is a blend of Progressive and Classic Rock with a hint of Jam, evident in the guitar solos and the virtuosity of the rhythm section. Their music is pulsing and indefatigable. Mad Kings are palpably talented musicians. They are musicians-musicians and their songs are esoteric and characteristic of Mad Kings. Mad Kings are as much of a fixture at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, where Bruce Springsteen began, as they are on the festival and prog rock circuits. Their fans are loyal and emphatic. They made a much talked about appearance at the October 2014 Souper Groove Festival, thrilling crowds and broadening their fan base. Mad Kings rhythm section is Andres Valbuena, the quintessential "monster drummer." who effortlessly plays like a man possessed, but with a contrasting calmness of spirit and Bassist Matt Sonzogni who is mild mannered and sometimes taciturn. The band came together over a box of Fruit By The Foot, ("glorified" fruit roll ups.) After playing together for a few months they named their band Mad Kings.

Barbaric Yawp - Rockwood Music Hall
July 22, 2017 - East Village

When six professional musicians got together in Brooklyn, the result was the exciting, genre-transcending sound of Barbaric Yawp. The original compositions combine orchestrated sections reminiscent of big band swing and funk, the looseness and freedom of a jazz quartet, the funky sweet sound of soul, and bebop style unison lines all delivered with barbaric doses of blues and rock. In the words of Relix magazine's June 2014 issue: "The quartet has developed excellent chemistry over the last two years, and the copious interplay and improvisation between the musicians always keeps the live shows interesting and electrifying." Barbaric Yawp began as a trio in the summer of 2011 with Peter Fabrizio on vocals and guitar, Cesare Papetti on drums, and Ray Cetta on bass. In 2014 Dan Cooper replaced Ray on bass, and saxophonist Scott Hoefling joined the group. It was this Barbaric Yawp lineup that went into Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn in early 2015 to record the first Yawp album, Listen. This debut album was released on October 30, 2015 as Barbaric Yawp hosted their first record release party at New York's oldest rock club: The Bitter End. Barbaric Yawp has since added vocalists Emily Searles and Audrey Anjos and is back in the studio to record their second album. Please check out the album on the music page of our site or on our Bandcamp page, and sign up to our mailing list or like us on Facebook to get the latest updates.

Radical Bodies - New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, LPA Cafe
Through July 22, 2017 -

In August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody Gottfried Arnhold

National Youth Orchestra of China - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall
July 22, 2017 - New York City

The driving beat of taigu drumming, an African American spiritual quoted by a Czech master, and a beloved Russian concerto are featured in the inaugural performance of the National Youth Orchestra of China, a new ensemble launched this summer that brings together many of the country's finest young players. Zhou Long's The Rhyme of Taigu depicts the energetic pulse of the Japanese taiku, or "fat drum" (taigu in Chinese) in vibrant orchestral colors. Dvo?ák's fascination with Native American music and African American spirituals takes flight in his sweetly lyrical "New World" Symphony, while Tchaikovsky's magnificent concerto is a richly romantic showpiece with pianistic pyrotechnics and soaring melodies.

All's Well That Ends Well - La Plaza @ The Clemente Parking Lot
Through July 22, 2017 - New York City

"ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL" JULY 6-22 It'll be the first production of this "problem play" in The Drilling Company's Shakespeare in the Parking Lot--or in any other parking lot for that matter. WHERE AND WHEN: July 6 to 22, 2017 La Plaza @ The Clemente Parking Lot, 114 Norfolk Street (E. side of Norfolk St. between Delancey and Rivington) Thursdays - Saturdays at 7:00 PM FREE Subways: F to Delancey Street, M to Essex Street. Presented by The Drilling Company Info call 212-877-0099 or visit www.shakespeareintheparkinglot.com and www.drillingcompany.org Running time: 2 hours (without intermission) We open our 23rd season July 6 to 22 with "All's Well That Ends Well," directed by Karla Hendrick. It's the first time this play has been presented in a parking lot, ever. Helena is the only daughter of a famous French physician. Although a gentlewoman, she is not nobility, and for that the man she loves, a count named Bertram, her rank is not enough. He rejects her but she follows him to the court of the King of France, who is ailing. Bearing her father's potions, she offers to cure the monarch on a gamble: if he dies, she will submit to execution, but if he lives, she can choose a husband from anyone in his court. She chooses Bertram, who is forced to marry her and does, but he flees immediately after the ceremony to Italy to fight in the Tuscan Wars. He issues an impossible challenge: he will only be Helena's husband after she has borne his child and wears his family ring. In Italy he distinguishes himself as both a warrior and a seducer of local girls. Helena tails him to Italy, where she befriends Diana, a virgin he is smitten with. Helena poses as Diana in his dark bedchamber and Diana manages to obtain Bertram's ring in exchange for one of Helena's. So the marriage is complete, whereupon Helena fakes her own death to lure Bertram home. Back in France, Bertram tries to marry the daughter of a Lord but Diana breaks up the engagement with her revelations. Bertram, impressed by all Helena has done to win him, swears love to her. This resolution fulfills the proverb: all's well that ends well. The play offers side-splitting comedy in the self-serving machinations of Parolles, a disloyal associate of Bertram, and by a clown of Bertram's household. But its moments of levity are interlaced with gut-wrenching pathos, causing it to be labeled one of Shakespeare's "problem plays." In its previous 22 years, Shakespeare in the Parking Lot has never before presented this tricky play and there is no record of it being produced in any other parking lot. The Drilling Company has been producer of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot since 2006 and is also the exclusive producer of Shakespeare plays in Bryant Park. The troupe has been kicking around the idea of doing this challenging play for about four years. To director Karla Hendrick, the play's quick shifts in tone are Chekhovian and that is the source of its strength and beauty. She explains that the play might seem to depict a smart woman who falls for the bad boy and makes dumb choices. But viewed through the healing power of the feminine, it becomes a discovery of becoming a woman and what it means to become a man.  Helena, on her journey of self-discovery, is driven by her heart and a positive life philosophy. She makes bold choices and is emboldened with each success.  Bertram is on a journey too; becoming a war hero and learning what it means to be a man.  The play, then, is a Chekhovian coming of age story of two young people united through diverse journeys through despair and darkness. Ms. Hendrick has chosen to set the piece in southeastern France just before the fascist invasion of World War II. This is to illuminate themes of the muting of women's role and voice, the breakdown of patriarchal systems, and the fight against fascism (or lack of fight). The cloud of an uncertain future is always present; in the end, we don't know what choices Helena and Bertram will make but we are meant to wonder how the impending darkness will deepen their journeys. The actors are Anwen Darcy, Una Clancy, Michael Bernstein, Michael Gnat, Elaine Ivy Harris, Elowyn Castle, Adam Huff, Mary Linehan, Eric Paterniani, Jarrod Bates, David Sitler and Gabriela Montalvo. Costume design is by Sofia Piccolo and Grace Whittemore. Sound design is by Andrew Keenan. Assistant director is Andrew Gombas. Stage Managers are Em Hornbeck and Joseph Treimanis. Assistant Stage Manager is Rachel Jeffries. Karla Hendrick is one of The Drilling Company's most accomplished actresses. Her performance as Betty in "The Norwegians" by C. Denby Swanson, she was cited by The New York Times as one of the Top 25 Quirky and Magical Moments in Theater of 2013. Her other significant roles in the company include the Woyzeck character's psychiatrist in "Reservoir" by Eric Henry Sanders and her performances in both the Parking Lot and Bryant Park in "Hamlet" (Gertrude) and "The Merry Wives of Windsor" (Mistress Ford). She earned a BA in Theater Arts from Mount Holyoke, attended the British American Drama Academy, Oxford and earned an MFA from Brooklyn College. She is a Master Teaching Artist at the Metropolitan Opera Guild. She has been a guest artist-educator at the Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed National Conference and a professional artist/panelist at the New England Women's Global Leadership Conference. This is her directorial debut. The cast is filled with standout actors of The Drilling Company. Anwen Darcy (Helena) stole the show as Mercutio in "Romeo and Juliet" in Bryant Park in 2015. Elowyn Castle (Bertram's mother) directed "The Norwegians" and was commended by The New York Times for her performance in the Parking Lot as Coriolanus' mother Volumnia, the pushy and hard-bitten "Momma Rose of the Roman military." Adam Huff (Bertram) got the girl last summer as Bassanio in "The Merchant of Venice" in the Parking Lot. David Sitler (King of France) was critically praised as Claudius in "Hamlet" and Dogberry in "Much Ado About Nothing." Eric Paterniani and Jarrod Bates are The Drilling Company's leading Shakespearean clowns. The part of The Fool, traditionally played by a man, has been cast with Mary Linehan (Hero in "Much Ado About Nothing" and Bianca in "The Taming of the Shrew"). Michael Bernstein, who plays, was Lucio in "Measure for Measure." Michael Gnat, playing Lafew, was the company's Polonius in "Hamlet" in Bryant Park. Elaine Ivy Harris (Diana) played Celia in "As You Like It." ###

In this collaboration with choreographer Loïc Touzé, the 22 acrobats of XY reflect on the ways in which humanity deals with instability and imbalance. With its uniquely rhythmic and expressive brand of physical theater, the troupe draws not only gasps of wonder from the crowd, but also meaning and beauty from the ephemeral arrangements that appear and vanish as they catapult through the air. Skillful bodies in motion evoke the full range of human experience, from the uplift and weightlessness of euphoria to the inevitable fall and a new beginning. The sum of it all is an awe-inspiring experience for audiences of all ages.

While I Was Waiting - Gerald W. Lynch Theater
Through July 22, 2017 - Upper West Side

Digging into the story of one middle-class Damascus family, the celebrated Syrian team of playwright Mohammad Al Attar and director Omar Abusaada offer a gripping portrait of a country trapped in a gray area between hope and despair. Brutally beaten at a checkpoint, 30-year-old Taim is admitted to the hospital in a coma. As his loved ones gather around him, they must face a reality defined by uncertainty and absence. What happened to Taim? Will he ever wake up? How has their vibrant, modern city become so strange and cruel? Unable to communicate, Taim lingers on the stage, an observer and commentator, as long-buried secrets and complicated relationships are revealed. Inspired by a true story, the play weaves together different layers of consciousness, humanizing the situation in Syria and collapsing the distance between the Syrian people and the rest of the world.

A Night at Niblo's Garden - Green-Wood
July 22, 2017 - Greenwood Heights

This popular event is back for 2017 and better than ever! Niblo's Garden was once one of New York City's largest and most elaborate theaters (at Prince and Broadway in SoHo) replete with sparkling lanterns, fountains, a festive open-air restaurant and bar, and featuring the top musicians, dancers, and entertainers of the time. Owner and impresario, William Niblo, an eccentric himself, was known to invite friends to the site of his elaborate mausoleum at Green-Wood, built for his dearly departed wife, turning the lakeside burial plot into a pleasure garden of its own. He was said to have visited the mausoleum on a daily basis, bringing friends, picnicking and even stocking the nearby pond with goldfish. Enjoy a Victorian extravaganza of performing arts put on by our good friends at Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, a vaudeville and arts powerhouse since 1995. Your night will begin with a picnic (bring your own) around the beautiful pond Crescent Water and will unfold into an evening of showmanship in front of Niblo's grand mausoleum. As always, author and Niblo expert Ben Feldman will hold court as Niblo himself. Bring a blanket, snacks, and drinks, and prepare to be dazzled by 19th-century games, fire eaters, contortionists, and much more – all lit by candles and a starry sky. $35 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $40 for non-members.

Shemekia Copeland - Iridium
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

Whether she's belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soul- shouter, bringing the spirit to a gospel-fueled R&B rave-up or digging deep down into a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Shemekia Copeland sounds like no one else. With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, Shemekia's wide-open vision of contemporary blues, roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach. The Chicago Tribune says Copeland delivers "gale force singing and power" with a "unique, gutsy style, vibrant emotional palette and intuitive grasp of the music." NPR Music calls her "fiercely expressive." Copeland's return to Alligator Records with Grammy-nominated Outskirts Of Love (she recorded four albums for the label from 1998 through 2006) finds her at her most charismatic, performing roots rock, Americana, and blues with power and authority, nuance and shading. Produced by The Wood Brothers' Oliver Wood, Outskirts Of Love is a musical tour-de-force, with Copeland rocking out on the title track, taking charge in Crossbone Beach, honoring her father, the late Johnny Clyde Copeland with her Afrobeat-infused take on his Devil's Hand, tackling homelessness on Cardboard Box and showing off her country swagger on Drivin' Out Of Nashville. She puts her stamp on songs made famous by Solomon Burke (I Feel A Sin Coming On ), Jesse Winchester (Isn't That So), Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee (The Battle Is Over ), Creedence Clearwater Revival (Long As I Can See The Light ), ZZ Top (Jesus Just Left Chicago ), Albert King (Wrapped Up In Love Again ) and Jessie Mae Hemphill (Lord, Help The Poor And Needy ). Friends including Billy F Gibbons, Robert Randolph, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Will Kimbrough and Pete Finney all add their talent with unbridled enthusiasm. The result is the most decidedly contemporary and musically adventurous album of Copeland's still-evolving career. Shemekia Copeland was born in Harlem, New York on April 10, 1979, and came to her singing career naturally. Her bluesman father recognized his daughter's talent early on. He always encouraged her to sing at home and even brought her on stage to sing at Harlem's famed Cotton Club when she was just eight. At that time Shemekia's embarrassment outweighed her desire to sing. But when she was 15, and her father's health began to slow him down, she received the calling. "It was like a switch went off in my head," recalls Shemekia, "and I wanted to sing. It became a want and a need. I had to do it." At 16, Shemekia joined her father on his tours after he was diagnosed with a degenerative heart condition. Soon enough Shemekia was opening, and sometimes even stealing, her father's shows. "She grabbed the crowd with her powerful voice, poised and intense," raved Blues Revue at the time. Eventually, though, it became clear to Shemekia who was helping whom. "Dad wanted me to think I was helping him out by opening his shows when he was sick, but really he was doing it all for me. He would go out and do gigs so I would get known. He went out of his way to get me that exposure," recalls Shemekia. Shemekia stepped out of her father's shadow in 1998 with her groundbreaking debut CD, Turn The Heat Up, recorded when she was only 18. Critics from around the world celebrated her music as fans of all ages agreed that an unstoppable new talent had arrived. News outlets from The New York Times to CNN took note of Copeland's talent, engaging personality, and true star power. "Nothing short of uncanny," said the Village Voice. "She roars with a sizzling hot intensity," added The Boston Globe Copeland followed up with 2000's Grammy-nominated Wicked, 2002's Talking To Strangers (produced by Dr. John) and 2005's The Soul Truth (produced by Steve Cropper). In that short period of time, she earned eight Blues Music Awards, a host of Living Blues Awards (including the prestigious 2010 Blues Artist Of The Year) and more accolades from fans, critics and fellow musicians. Two highly successful releases on Telarc (including 2012's Grammy-nominated 33 1/3 ) cemented her reputation as a singer who, according to NPR's All Things Considered, "embodies the blues with her powerful vocal chops and fearless look at social issues." USA Today says, "Copeland is a singer with fervor and funk, power and range." Copeland has performed thousands of gigs at clubs, festivals and concert halls all over the world and has appeared on national television, NPR, and in newspapers, films and magazines. She is a mainstay on countless commercial and non-commercial radio stations. She's sung with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, James Cotton and many others. She opened for The Rolling Stones and entertained U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait. Jeff Beck calls her "f*cking amazing." Santana says, "She's incandescent…a diamond." At the 2011 Chicago Blues Festival, the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois officially declared Copeland to be "The New Queen Of The Blues." In 2012, she performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. Afterward, Jagger (with whom she sang) sent her a bottle of champagne. With Outskirts Of Love and a packed tour schedule, Copeland has her eyes fixed firmly on the future as she continues to break new musical ground. "I want to keep growing, to be innovative," she says. "I'm a lifer, singing about things that bother me, using my music to help people. My dad always said 'we're all connected.' I'm an old soul marching to the beat of my own drum," she continues, "And right now I'm making the most exciting music of my career." 0

Then, out of complete darkness emerges Crowds and Power, a media tone poem for voice, electronic sound, and live imagery inspired by Elias Canetti's troubling and eternally relevant book. Intrepid vocalist Joan La Barbara—a champion of the avant-garde —performs the central character and Berlin-based artist Lillevan provides a live visual environment in this world premiere performance.

FEATURE SLATE EAST COAST PREMIERE Preceded by: Summer's Puke is Winter's Delight (2016) by Sawako Kabuki, 3 min. Part of Nikkatsu's Roman Porno Reboot Project celebrating the 45th anniversary of the genre that infamously saved the studio, ANTI-PORNO is a uniquely subversive take on Nikkatsu's softcore sex label by festival favorite Sion Sono. Pacing a vibrantly colored art studio that looks like something out of a Jodorowsky film, celebrity novelist, artist and enfant-terrible Kyoko (Ami Tomite) terrorizes everyone around her, especially her eager-to-please assistant Noriko (Mariko Tsutsui), whom she sadistically (and quite literally) keeps on a leash. Just as Kyoko's cruelty reaches its peak, however, the film takes an unexpected about-face that, in true Sono-style, breaks down cinematic barriers in order to tackle the subjects of art, misogyny and freedom with boundless energy and unbridled passion. 2017. 78 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Sion Sono. With Ami Tomite, Mariko Tsutsui, Fujiko, Sayaka Kotani, Tomo Uchino. "Sono's effort is easily the most ambitious entry yet in the series of re-imagined softcore entertainments." —James Marsh, South China Morning Post

When Nina, the daughter of their mother's absent American boyfriend, arrives for a visit, she begins to push Sakura's buttons to break out of her shell. Treading on the complicated physical and felt relationship between the U.S. and Japan, Daisuke Miyazaki's second feature is a nuanced coming-of-age drama illuminated by veteran camerawoman Akiko Ashizawa. 2016. 118 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Daisuke Miyazaki. With Hanae Kan, Nina Endo, Haruka Uchimura, Reiko Kataoka, Shuya Nishiji.

Digital Self-Defense and Empowerment Workshops, Pt. I - New Museum
July 22, 2017 - New York

ONVERSATIONS SEASON-RELATED · EXHIBITION-RELATED Handmade Computers with Taeyoon Choi What is computer, really? Computer is an idea that's evolved over time. The sleek machines we use day-to-day are made from elements extracted from the earth, and every bit of data is actually something, somewhere. And underneath the operating systems, there's a history that needs to be examined. Let's build a computer, from its most fundamental elements: Adder, Clock, and Memory. By handmaking a computer, soldering electronic components, we may find an elegance in the abstraction and repetition of computational logic that can be only describe as "poetic." The 1-Bit Computer Kit is an open-source tool and curriculum for making computing more accessible. By learning how computers work on a fundamental level, participants can gain agency and imagine a reciprocal relationship with technology. We can make technology more approachable by giving access to tools and ideas and demystifying computer science. To pre-register for this free session, please email season@newmuseum.org briefly describing your interest. Registration will be followed by a confirmation email on a first come, first served basis. In conjunction with "Paul Ramírez Jonas: Half-truths," this afternoon of workshops extends the exhibition's inquiry into the complexities of determining identity and truth to the online sphere. Addressing increasing vulnerability and participation in surveillance, artists and activists will offer tools to learn about how data is mined and fed back to us, as well as strategies for self-protection, particularly for members of vulnerable communities. Workshops will support the demystification of hidden processes through both tactile, hands-on experiences and analytic software. Workshops are presented in collaboration with Equality Labs and NEW INC residents DATA X and Taeyoon Choi. "Manufacturing Truth: Machine Learning and Bias" is organized on the occasion of the exhibition and residency "Paul Ramírez Jonas: Half-truths," part of the Department of Education and Public Engagement's annual Summer R&D Season: SOCIAL JUSTICE. Taeyoon Choi is an artist, educator, and activist based in New York and Seoul. His art practice involves performance, electronics, drawings, and installations that often form the basis for storytelling in public spaces. He has published artists' books including Urban Programming 101 (2011) and Anti-Manifesto (2012), and has presented collaborative performances at the Whitney Museum of American Art and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He has been an artist-in-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, and NEW INC. Choi also cofounded the School for Poetic Computation, where he continues to organize sessions and teach. Recently, he has been focused on unlearning the wall between disability and normalcy, and enhancing accessibility and inclusion within art and technology. Sponsors "Paul Ramírez Jonas: Half-Truths" is made possible through support provided by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Artist commissions at the New Museum are generously supported by the Neeson / Edlis Artist Commissions Fund. Artist residencies are made possible, in part, by Laurie Wolfert.

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company : Analogy/Ambros: the Emigrant - New York Live Arts
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

Memory, often strikes me as a kind of dumbness. It makes one's head heavy and giddy, as if one were not looking back down the receding perspectives of time but rather down on the earth from a great height, from one of those towers whose tops are lost to view in the clouds." –W.G.Sebald, The Emigrants Bill T. Jones with Associate Artistic Director, Janet Wong, and his company are creating the third and final installment of the Analogy Trilogy, Ambros: The Emigrant. This trilogy brings into light the different types of war we fight and, in particular, the war within ourselves. The trilogy is an investigation of memory, storytelling and form. The idea for Analogy was inspired by Jones's re-reading W.G. Sebald's celebrated novel, The Emigrants and its Ambros Adelwarth section in particular. This narrative, through a quasi-fictionalized history, strives to suggest how an experience of trauma can go underground in the psyche of an individual and direct consciously and unconsciously the course of that individual's life. The central figure, Ambros Adelwarth, is a German valet/manservant who serves as companion to a privileged, dissipated, young scion of a wealthy Jewish family. This restrained and evocative narrative tracks Ambros' experience working at hotels, the glamorous travels with his charge, Cosmo, through Europe and the Middle East on the eve of WWI and then his life after Cosmo's descent into madness and death. Composer and vocalist Nick Hallett has set passages of the story to music, and is joined by pianist Emily Manzo and all the members of the Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Company in the live performance of an original song cycle that partners with their movement, both as soloists and in a ghostly choir. The memory of Schubert Lieder heard throughout the Analogy Trilogy resonates through electric guitars, echoing into a moody, experimental soundscape. Jones continues his work with collaborators Bjorn Amelan (Décor), Janet Wong (Projection), Robert Wierzel (Lighting) and Liz Prince (Costumes). For Jones and his team, Ambros is the end of a path of exploration, a culmination that could in fact be a beginning… Commissioned by Dancers' Workshop and ADF with support from the Doris Duke/SHS Foundations Award for New Dance and the Reinhart Fund. Created in part with the support from the Made In Wickenburg Residency Program with funding from the R. H. Johnson Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, WESTAF and the Wellik Foundation.

Lotion, Haram, Dss, Witchtrial, Urchin - Sunnyvale
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

The modern wave of NYC hardcore birthed in the mid-aughts by bands like Crazy Spirit, Dawn of Humans, and Hank Wood & The Hammerheads, though still in tact, started to shift a little over a year ago. In the time frame between the 2014 and 2015 iterations of New York's Alright, the scene essentially drew and quartered itself, symbolically bookending a vital chapter in the contemporary scene on what would end up (supposedly) being the last year of the fest. Some found the light mangled at the altar of classic rock (Cheena), Haram ?Nader Habibi is a frizzy-haired and heavily tattooed Lebanese-American from Yonkers, New York. He has a fondness for mesh tank tops, large earrings and raging hardcore punk. (DC, mems of Warthog, Pure Disgust, Firewalker, Protestor, Ajax, Barbed Wire) Raw Punk/HC from New York area, featuring members of Narcoleptics and Razorheads. "Damn good Demo with elements of raw and fast crust/d-beat!" "Grab it, play it loud !!!!!"

Raq - Mercury Lounge
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

Self-described as high performance rock n roll, RAQ has been touring as a four piece band for over 15 years. Their unique sound featuring complex song structure and quirky-yet-accessible lyrics has their older fans wishing the band was still full time and the younger generation wondering what they have missed. There is little doubt after all these years that RAQ still delivers tremendously when it comes to live improvisational rock. The band met in Burlington, Vermont, where they first called themselves "Shadraq", but decided to shorten the name to RAQ before cutting their debut album "Shed Tech" in March of 2001. In 2002, the band saw original keyboard player, Marc Scortino, leave the band and replaced by Todd Stoops. Stoops joined Chris Michetti (guitar), Jay Burwick (Bass) and Greg Stukey (drums) to make up the band for the remainder of the decade. The band went on to release "Carbohydrates Are the Enemy" later that year and set out for their first national tour. In 2006, RAQ released their third album "Ton These." The band took a brief hiatus from 2012-2014 to pursue some other projects and plays currently with the 3 founding members: Michetti, Burwick and Stoops who are now joined on drums by Scotty Zwang (formerly of Dopapod) One of the reasons behind RAQ's highly successful tour past is due to their compositions being grounded in solid song structures, but still being malleable enough to go in infinite directions in the live setting. This keeps the quartet's devout following and first time listeners yearning for more as the audience is taken along on the collective journey. Their extensive repertoire of original compositions and eclectic selection of covers give the band the freedom to create a unique set list for every show.

Swimm Gods Zuli - Mercury Lounge
July 22, 2017 - New York

SWIMM is a band. Though truly it feels as though I'm slighting you to define it so irreverently. Sure… the semantics. It is a group of guys playing indie music. Genres, directions and influence oh my. The way I see it? You don't blur genre lines as much as you weave in and around them. Like a dancer trained in the art of the pole, you wrap yourself around every angle of that steel, climbing to exhilarating heights, effortlessly spinning off in exciting directions but still poised and comfortable in the intimacy of an eye-locking ass-clap. Again… even thinking about it… It moved a little. The ambition to strive for a singular voice and sincerity in music is often the 'unapproachable model sitting alone smoking a menthol at the bar blankly staring above her glass of sherry'. So the mirabilia in you finding that is not lost on me. But to this there is that and to that there is this! An innate humor that often detracts the listener from ever taking you too seriously. Well let's say more seriously than you would ever want. And in that my SWIMM friends the truth you are tapping into does not beg for recognition nor does it parry those listeners with phlegmatic constitution. Cause let's face it, apathy has near and far replaced 'easy listening'. In your new single "Man's Man" you relay the hilarity of a cliche Los Angeles artist type molding sincerity in heartbreak through conjured New Age justifications. You sing "horoscopes for answers please, a whore before but now I see my actions don't define me. // I'm existential ego free, waiting for the feels to leave// still I'd rather hear you cry and than to hear you say you love me." Your writing process. Well I find it reflects the corybantic nature of our fast food society and well… how else could we all relate? In one moment a plea with reality and a bargain with aspirations and in another the possibility that all the secrets of the universe are tied up in the banal observations we may be too preoccupied to ruminate upon. Take "Beverly Hells", the title track of your last EP and the first sign that you were willing to go a little deeper. In one sense a satirical rant on the absurdity of Hollywood. In another sense, a love song simply pining for the genuine to reveal itself. But what would these words be than just someone's drunk uncle slurring his ethos in late night text messages without a marriage of palpable sonic elements. Palpable in the way your brain gets chills and softly vibrates much like an underwater eel garden when clean MDMA introduces itself to your senses. (Or so I've heard) Or the way your whole body feels a chord when just the right amount of psilocybin is ingested. (Also, i've heard) Perhaps SWIMM, you knew you must create the world in which these lyrics live, in just the right way to express the sentiments they speak to your easily detracted, Ritalin generation. But here is the clincher for me. Let's see. How can I explain this. Ok, every once in a while I want to forget our technological advances and the jejune twinkling of Apple laptop music and swing my cock (again, proverbial) around like a freshman named Max or Cooper, who wears tie-dye with unapologetic naiveté and doesn't fear the capricious pathways of the subconscious that can be opened by LSD. Pardon but can someone just fuck me up a little? Well SWIMM you do that for me too. Cause boys, even though you will only grow softer in your quarter life crisis… much like my metaphorical member, I can tell it is within you to need that same release. And sooner or later, after Cookie gets his fill of slowly dry humping the audience's ears via his crush velvet whispers he too will reach for his balls (must I reiterate at this point?). He will kick a pedal and lose his shit and we will all get the kick in the dick we've been waiting for. Ryan Camenzuli aka 'Zuli' is a songwriter / multi-instrumentalist from Long Island, NY. Combining his love for well orchestrated pop songs and lo-fi influence, Zuli's songs dwell in a sweet spot between the hallucinogenic and the neatly buttoned. An unhinged 70's inspired psychedelia tethered to earth by fine pop sensibilities and structure.

An Evening with Graham Nash - Sold out Call for Waitlist - Landmark on Main Street
July 22, 2017 - Port Washington

Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with both Crosby, Stills, and Nash and the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a Grammy Award winner. Graham Nash's passionate voice has often been heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts Graham organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events. In 2011, Graham was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide. During this tour, Graham is partnering with the Guacamole Fund and Musicians United for Safe Energy (M.U.S.E.) to raise funds on its behalf by offering you special benefit seating.* M.U.S.E. is a non-profit organization that supports organizations worldwide that promote safe, alternative non-nuclear energy. See below for pricing and restrictions. In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which delivers an engrossing, no-holds-barred look back at his remarkable career and the music that defined a generation. The book landed him on the New York Times Best Seller list, and was released in paperback format in late 2014. In recognition of his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth. While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist. With his photography, Nash has drawn honors including the New York Institute of Technology's Arts & Technology Medal and Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters and the Hollywood Film Festival's inaugural Hollywood Visionary Cyber Award. His work is collected in the book Eye to Eye: Photographs by Graham Nash; he curated others' work in the volume Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock 'n' Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash (2009). Nash's work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. His company Nash Editions' original IRIS 3047 digital printer and one of its first published works -- Nash's 1969 portrait of David Crosby -- is now housed in the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution in recognition of his revolutionary accomplishments in the fine arts and digital printing world. His new studio album This Path Tonight was released April 15, 2016 to rave reviews. Graham Nash is a supporter of the Guacamole Fund; at his request, one dollar of every ticket purchase is donated to the Fund. More on the Guacamole Fund here.

Damien Escobar The Heart and Soul Tour - Garde Arts Center
July 22, 2017 - New London

An evening with two-time Emmy Award winning urban / rock / hip-hop / classical violinist, Damien Escobar. With stand-up comedy show opener featuring John Perrotta, hosted by Marvy Marv, DJ Craig G and Jenny Boom Boom. Easy come, easy go; was the lesson two-time Emmy Award winning violinist Damien Escobar learned when he and his brother walked away from a multi-million dollar brand that took ten years to build. The now 27-year-old's claim to fame came early on in his teens when he, alongside his brother, appeared on "America's Got Talent" as Nuttin' but Stringz. Two urban kids from Jamaica, Queens, playing a blend of hip hop and classical melodies with a violin was somewhat surprising to viewers, and unique to say the very least; and the duo quickly shot to stardom– appearing in commercials and movies, touring, and even adding a platinum selling album to their accolades. Since re-launching his career, Escobar boasts of 200K downloads from his first R&B mixtape, "Sensual Melodies"; and has more than a few notable solo headliner performances under his belt including: CBS Upfront Presentation, Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chef Awards, Indy Car Championship Awards, Major League Baseball Annual Golf Fundraiser Event, Angela Simmons "Electric Daze" Fashion Show, Russell Simmons' Hip Hop Inaugural Ball, and corporate concerts for FRIDAYS, Walmart, Target, and more. Escobar's current release of his high-energy, inspirational single "Freedom" debuted on CNN.com. Damien makes it no secret that he's determined to gain recognition for being the "dopest" violinist to crossover into mainstream music. In an industry not overpopulated by instrumentalists, the urban-rock violinist is looking to change the game. He's a pioneer with a plan, and the future of music rest in his hands.

Rootbrew - Rockwood Music Hall
July 22, 2017 - East Village

Sprouted from New York's fertile Hudson Valley, Rootbrew was formed by Benjy Bruno and Ryan Reutershan with the purpose of exploring their shared appreciation for the uplifting and positive sounds of different world music that they had each grown up listening to and developed further interest in throughout their adult lives. Their songwriting reflects influences that clearly focus on their American roots, while also drawing heavily from some of their musical heroes from West and South Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America. The resulting sound is not always the easiest to communicate to the audience, and Roger LaRochelle was the locked in drummer that was needed to hold down the groove that this music requires. His pocket, as well as his skill set on the kit, were the added elements that have allowed Rootbrew's music to be felt as much as it is heard. Although Benjy, Ryan, and Roger all rejoice in contributing to the singing, Meg Riebesell was the powerful and harmonically gifted voice that was needed to deliver the lyrical messages, (which range from simple love songs to politically charged songs, as well as laments on war, suffering, and spirituality) with the true beauty that the songs deserve. With a recently recorded album available, and recent performances with bands such as Lakou Mizik (Haiti) Mamadou Kelly (Mali), and Big Mean Sound Machine (Ithaca), it is an exciting time for the band. Together, this group can write, play, sing, and creates a sound that will make the audience want to sing along, dance along, shout, jump, listen, discuss, and dream.

Kinesis Project Dance Theatre presents Excerpts from TimePiece: Another Imperfect Measurement of Us - Brooklyn Bridge Park
July 22, 2017 - Brooklyn

Kinesis Project dance theatre presents excerpts from TimePiece: Another imperfect measurement of us in Brooklyn Bridge Park Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 7pm Kinesis Project dance theatre presents excerpts of TimePiece: Another imperfect measurement of us in a free performance on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 7pm in Brooklyn Bridge Park, as a part of Gibney Dance's dance-mobile Summer 2017. TimePiece: Another imperfect measurement of us is a site-mobile outdoor dance about time, perspective and connection over distances; as the dancers move, spin and partner - their costumes slowly release brightly colored sand - drawing the audience, and the movement throughout the space. Kinesis Project is an NYC based, large-scale, outdoor dance company led by choreographer Melissa Riker. The company is developing a new, multi-chromatic performance inviting contemplation of impermanence. Riker, the dancers, and close collaborators NYC costume designer Asa B. Thornton and Seattle material artist Celeste Cooning, are creating a kinetically kaleidoscopic work that celebrates connection, defies distance, and displays the ephemeral by drawing and confronting time, effort, and motion. Kinesis Project will also lead Class in the Grass at 5:30pm in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Dance-mobile is a free outdoor performance series presenting works by Gibney Dance Company and guests in parks throughout New York City. This summer, the series offers excerpts of Gina Gibney's Folding In (2016) performed by Gibney Dance Company, and a one-night-only class and performance by Kinesis Project dance theatre. All performances are free and open to the public. Details at GibneyDance.org.   Melissa Riker is Artistic Director and Choreographer of Kinesis Project dance theatre. She is a New York City dancer and choreographer who emerged as a strong performance and creative voice as the NYC dance and circus worlds combined during the 90's. Riker's dances and aesthetic layer her training as a classical dancer, martial artist, theatre choreographer and aerial performer. She creates dances on site - and in context. Riker invents large-scale out-door performances and spontaneous moments of dance for individuals and corporate clients. Audiences and critics have called Riker's work "a Marx Brothers' routine with soul," "A movable feast." And from The New York Times, her choreography is: "comically acrobatic, gracefully classical, visually arresting."   Kinesis Project is a dance organization that produces dance concerts, facilitates educational programs and creates site-specific performances with diverse communities. A company at the forefront of the international discussion of placemaking, art engagement and the cultural imperative of art in public space, Kinesis Project dance theatre invents large scale, space-changing, breath-taking experiences.    Since 2005, Kinesis Project's work has been experienced in San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Vermont, Florida and in New York City at such venerable venues as Danspace Project, Judson Church, Joyce Soho, The Minskoff Theatre, The Cunningham Studio, West End Theatre and Dixon Place.  The company dances outside in sculpture gardens, universities, and annually since 2006 in Battery Park's Bosque Gardens and The Cloisters Lawn as well as hosting over 30 surprise performances all over New York City and the tri-state area as an element of the company's earned income and outreach programming with volunteer populated flashmobs. Residencies include: Earthdance 2006, Omi International Arts Center 2008, Kaatsbaan International Dance Center 2011, TheaterLab 2014, Adelphi University 2014. Ms. Riker is a 2016 and 2017 CDI Residency Fellow, 2015 LMCC Community Arts Fund grantee and was commissioned by The Brooklyn Botanic Garden for a surprise large-scale work and performances of her work Secrets and Seawalls at Omi International Arts Center, Long House Reserve, Gateway National Park in partnership with Rockaways Artist Alliance. Ms. Riker has received commissions from Carson Fox and the Ephemeral Festival in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 for large-scale outdoor events, NYU in 1998, for an outdoor work long before "flashmob" was coined, 2006 and 2008 grants from the Puffin Foundation for her work Community Movements, a dance work with community volunteers, Fellowships from the Dodge Foundation, Space Grant Residencies from 92nd St Y, The New 42nd St Studio, Gibney Dance Center, and The Joyce Theatre Foundation, and grants from The Bowick Family Trust and John C. Robinson to support the continued work of Kinesis Project dance theatre.

Through July 23, 2017 - Brooklyn

Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern offers a new look at an iconic American artist who had her first solo museum exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, in 1927. Presenting O'Keeffe's remarkable wardrobe in dialogue with iconic paintings and photographs spanning her career, this singular exhibition provides a focused examination of the modernist aesthetic persona O'Keeffe crafted for herself through her dress, her art, and her progressive, independent lifestyle. Included are photographs by such luminaries as Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Annie Leibovitz, Philippe Halsman, Yousuf Karsh, Cecil Beaton, Bruce Weber, and others. These images and the garments and artworks on view confirm O'Keeffe's radical rethinking of female identity. Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern examines her drive to overturn the early, reductive characterization of her as solely a woman artist who created "feminine imagery," as well as her often conflicted relationship with second-wave feminists who championed her work in the 1970s. The exhibition also reveals O'Keeffe's commitment to core principles associated with modernism —minimalism, seriality, simplification—not only in her art, but also in her distinctive style of dress.

Tommy Davidson - Carolines on Broadway
Through July 23, 2017 - New York

An actor, stand-up comedian, musician, and singer, Tommy Davidson’ s exceptional range has made him a stellar force in entertainment. Perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of the hit television show In Living Color, Davidson has parlayed that success into a flourishing motion picture career. He made an impressive film debut opposite Halle Berry in Strictly Business and next starred opposite Jada Pinkett Smith in the romantic comedy, Woo (New Line). Tommy starred in Spike Lee’ s Bamboozled, where he received acclaim and praise for his turn as ‘Womack/Sleep ‘~N Eats,’ a character which showcased his comedic and dramatic acting abilities. Tommy starred in Morgan Creek Productions’ Juwanna Mann (2002) and was simultaneously seen cracking jokes and doing what he does best, making people laugh, in THE FOX NFL SHOW, which aired weekly on Saturday nights. Tommy co-hosted this new and unique show with football greats Michael Irvin and Tony Siragusa. He next starred in the provocative urban comedy, Booty Call (Columbia Pictures). Davidson started his career as a standup comedian in the late 1980s throughout the Washington Metropolitan region, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, performing in various comedy clubs. Performing stand-up in local talent showcases was where he was spotted by concert promoters, who booked him as the opening act for such major music stars such as Patti LaBelle, Kenny G, and Luther Vandross. The next step was Hollywood. He performed at many small clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where among others, he met Robert Townsend and Keenan Ivory Wayans, who would later prove instrumental in Davidson’ s career. Davidson’ s first national television appearance was a starring role in Townsend’ s Partners in Crime. Wayans, who offered him the opportunity to audition for a primetime variety show called In Living Color, which became a cult favorite and a huge ratings success, then approached Davidson. Davidson’ s hilarious impressions of Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jackson, and others have become infamous. In Living Color led to three Showtime specials: On Strength of New York, Illin’ in Philly, and Takin’ it to DC, and a handsome film career such as a reunion with fellow In Living Color alumni, Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura II: When Nature Calls. On the small screen, Tommy’ s starred as one of the leads in the Disney Channel animated series, The Proud Family. Tommy will soon be seen in the hottest film to come out of this year’ s Sundance Festival, Black Dynamite with Michael Jai White, scheduled for release December from Sony Pictures. He recently completed Chicago Pulaski Jones with Cedric the Entertainer. He provides the voice for ‘born loser,’ ‘harried father,’ and ‘snack-food mogul Oscar Proud’ in the hit Disney animated series The Proud Family. Davidson also provides the lead voice of Will Smith’ s up-and-coming cartoon series, Youngin’ s. Between acting jobs, Tommy travels internationally selling out every venue in which he headlines and participating in select high-profile industry events from Steve Harvey’ s ‘Hoodie Awards’ to star-studded Comedy Central specials.

Jewels - Lincoln Center Festival
Through July 23, 2017 - New York

Fifty years after its premiere at Lincoln Center, three of the world's most celebrated ballet companies come together for a once-in-a-lifetime presentation of George Balanchine's masterpiece, Jewels. For five performances on the same stage where it was premiered, the Paris Opera Ballet embodies Emeralds. New York City Ballet and the Bolshoi alternate Rubies and Diamonds, illuminating the different facets of Balanchine's masterpiece like the sun catching on one of its namesake gems. The three-part, evening-length work traces Balanchine's life and loves. Emeralds, set to Fauré, evokes the mystery and grace of France. Fueled by Stravinsky, Rubies crackles with jazz-inflected wit and sass, channeling the mid-century audacity of Manhattan. And breathtaking from the moment the lights go up, Diamonds conjures the grandeur of Imperial Russia, set to Tchaikovsky's lush Third Symphony.

The Cadaver Synod: a Pope Musical - NY Musical Theatre Festival
Through July 23, 2017 -

A carcass farce of most pope-y proportions. In the year 897 A.D., Pope Stephen VII dug up the rotting corpse of his predecessor, Pope Formosus, and placed it on trial in front of the entire Roman Clergy, Senate, and Aristocracy. After screaming at it for hours, Stephen had the body dismembered, disrobed, and thrown in the Tiber River. Why would he do this? Your guess is as good as ours. But, here's our guess. Brought to life with a sensuous mix of pope-punk, Catholic pop, and inarguably melodic ecclesiastical mandible-flappings, we invite YOU to the trial of the 9th century.

Raghs - Jewel Box Theater
Through July 23, 2017 - New York

Midtown International Theater Festival Presents RAGHS The story of one Iranian girl’s journey to womanhood (based on true events) Written and Performed by Sohailla Mahjour Directed and Developed by Pati Amoroso At The Jewel Box Theater July 18th @ 7:00PM July 22nd @ 7:00PM July 23rd @ 5:30PM New York, NY, June 26, 2017 - Midtown International Theater Festival will present Raghs, a one-woman play written by Sohailla Mahjour and developed and directed by Pati Amoroso. Raghs, which means “dance” in Farsi, is the story of a young Iranian-American girl who falls in love with an older Iranian cousin. Throughout a series of heartbreaking losses, this naive love carries her from adolescent innocence to womanhood. “Given our circumstances right now, politically, this story must be brought to as many communities as possible,” say Mahjour and Amoroso. “Middle Easterners and Americans must talk to each other. They must discuss simple things, like falling in love because they all share that emotion. By feeling empathy for the characters in this play, the audience member will be feeling empathy for Middle Easterners everywhere. That is how we believe we can join hands in fighting the segregation that is going on.” About the Cast Pati Amoroso is a Brazilian director who first stepped foot into the art world as an actress. At a very young age, she worked under the spotlight in many shoes including Sophie Sheridan in Mamma Mia!, Chanel in Bark! the Musical and Kayla in the Shady Pines pilot (HIFF). An NYU alumnus with a vast training in Speech, Method, Fátima Toledo, and Practical Aesthetics, Pati Amoroso was quickly snatched as a director of many original plays. As a huge supporter of women in arts, she proudly directed Mary V, My Life as Morgan, They’ll Be Callin’ Us Witches - to name a few - ALL abundant with strong female characters and ALL written by female playwrights. As a developer of Raghs, Pati was passionate about steering the hero's journey into painful paths but never relinquishing opportunities to add humor on every page. Sohailla Mahjour is an actress, writer and producer with a BFA from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. She found her niche for storytelling as a child reenacting Disney movies and imitating her charming Iranian father. Sohailla admires original works of art and has spent her last two years acting, writing, stage managing and producing unique stories for theater and film. Recently she Stage Managed Mary V (Theater For The New City) and Don’t Be Callin’ Us Witches (Radioactive Festival). She has toured Raghs at several venues in NYC (Joes’s Pub at the Public) and California (Azad’s Martial Arts). Sohailla is thrilled to perform Raghs in its 3rd festival this year. Entering its seventeenth year, Midtown International Theater Festival is dedicated to nurture theater in New York City and beyond. Three times a year (Spring, Summer, and Fall), MTIF offers a safe environment to create and develop unique and innovative theatre that utilizes imaginative, low-tech staging. Learn more about the festival at http://www.midtownfestival.org/. Raghs will be presented July 18th at 7:00pm, July 22nd at 7:00pm, and July 23rd at 5:30pm at the Jewel Box Theater, 312 West 36th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10018.

Martin Denton, Martin Denton - Kraine Theater
Through July 23, 2017 - New York

FRIGID New York @ Horse Trade in association with Elephant Run District will present the World Premiere of Chris Harcum’s Martin Denton, Martin Denton, directed by Aimee Todoroff, July 6-23 at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery) with performances Thursday through Saturday at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets ($25/$20 students & seniors) may be purchased in advance at www.horseTRADE.info. The performance will run approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission. An accountant in D.C. falls in love with theater in New York. After suddenly losing his father, he impulsively creates nytheatre.com. He gives up his comfortable life, spending thousands of nights in the audience and even more days at his computer bringing attention to notable, but often under-recognized artists. Working with his mother over two decades, he writes and edits thousands of reviews, publishes hundreds of plays, and posts scores of blog pieces, interviews, and podcasts. In doing so, he revolutionizes how the arts are covered and helps to usher in the indie theater movement. When the city fundamentally changes with soaring rents and shuttering spaces, plus the disruption of social media coverage, the sustained intensity of his schedule takes its toll. If you created or saw NYC indie theater during the last 20 years, chances are you've been impacted by his work. Now see his untold story move from his desk chair and the aisle seat, to the stage. The play will be directed by Aimee Todoroff (Brecht in the Park; Visionary Voices with American Bard Theatre Company) and the cast will feature Chris Harcum* (American Gun Show; Rabbit Island) as Martin Denton and Marisol Rosa-Shapiro (Babel with Convergences Theater Collective; The Last Coin with Spellbound Theater) as Rochelle Denton with Sound & Lighting Design by Matthew Fischer (Vanity Fair with The Pearl Theatre Company; Visionary Voices with American Bard Theatre Company) and Costume Design by Barbara Davidson (We Haven’t Told Anyone About This with Elephant Run District). *Actor appears courtesy of the Actors’ Equity Association

A competing barber, Adolfo Pirelli, recognizes Todd and threatens to reveal him to the authorities, causing Sweeney to kill Pirelli in a rage. When Mrs. Lovett discovers the body, she proposes disposing of it through her meat pies as she hasn't been able to afford real meat for weeks. Todd and Lovett continue to plot together, throats are slit, and business begins to flourish. Can Todd be stopped before exacting his revenge on the judge?

Sensorial Realities: Voyages Onward - Agora Gallery
Through July 25, 2017 - NYC

In Sensorial Realities, Agora Gallery's new group exhibition, every canvas on the wall is a portal to a different world. The nine artists featured here offer some of the most seductive alternative universes a viewer can hope for, whether it's a reinterpretation of Gilded Age portraiture or a compression of twenty-first century concerns into a surreal landscape. They create spaces out of oil, acrylic, stone, ceramic, and mixed media which break down barriers and open up new ideas. Some pieces on display are outright landscapes. There are stripped-down paintings of endless plains, which are made inviting by simplifying the brushstrokes yet unknowable by taking away the horizon line. There are scenes of single people amongst their own place in the land - at once less intimidating but more psychologically fraught. There are classic views of merry seas and beautiful gardens that are made contemporary with their exaggerated colors and forceful compositions. Then there are the "worlds" of another kind: probing portraits, abstracted color fields, and symbol-laden tableaux. Sensorial Realities opens July 5 and runs through July 25, 2017 with an opening reception Thursday, July 6 from 6 - 8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: July 5 – July 25, 2017 Reception: Thursday, July 6,2017, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am – 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_7_5_2017.aspx Featured Artists: Nora Pineda | Caroline Degroiselle | Jiri Maska | Christine Vella | Susan Marx | Mr. Sajja Sajjakul | Natasha Estanga | Horst Lukas | Frank M.

George Gee Swing Orchestra - SWING 46
Through July 25, 2017 - New York

A native New Yorker, George always loved music. He grew up with rock 'n' roll and R & B but in his teens, he also developed a powerful passion for jazz — especially the big band styles of the pre-World War II era. Throughout the '80s, with the blessing and counsel of Mr. Basie himself, George honed his craft, spreading the gospel of swing throughout the Pittsburgh tri-state region. He returned home to New York City in 1990, and gathered top New York-based musicians — including veterans of the world's most legendary big bands — to continue living his dream. Music by the George Gee Orchestra sets new standards for modern big band performance, elegantly balancing genuine traditions with exhilarating modernism. This versatile swingin' ensemble can deliver everything from a sweet foxtrot ballad to rock and soul party favorites to all-out rollickin' roadhouse boogie!

A Mayan Tapestry, Traditional and Contemporary paintings from Guatemala - El Taller Latino Americano
Through July 26, 2017 - New York

The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano is pleased to present “A MAYAN TAPESTRY - Traditional and Contemporary paintings from Guatemala,” an exhibition of paintings by Guatemala-based Mayan artists Angelina Quic Ixtamer, Juan Carlos Chavajay, Ottoniel Chavajay, Mariano Chavajay, Vicenta Coche, Gregorio Coche Mendoza, Humberto Cortez, Lorenzo Cruz, Pablo Horacio Cruz, Pedro Gonzalez, Mario Gonzalez Chavajay, Diego Gonzalez y Gonzalez, Henry Mendez Chavajay, Juan Edwin Perez Medina, Vicenta Puzul and Noe Yojcum. The exhibition features traditional and contemporary paintings by Mayan artists from Lake Atitlan, Guatemala and includes a diverse collection of vibrant works exploring connective threads between the deep roots of this ancient culture and their ability to adapt and survive through the Spanish Conquest, a brutal civil war and the influences of the modern world. Many of the artists draw upon the colorful patterns of the traditional textiles of the region and their rich natural environment and are also known for their unique art naïf style. In Mayan Cosmology, the Goddess Ixchel - the weaver, is believed to hold the world together and maintain the continuum with her weaving. The Mayan Calendar recognizes change and the cyclical nature of life. In view of these systems of thought, this show poses the question: How can traditional ways of life, essential values and the timeless wisdom of ancient cultures survive in this era of globalization? The show is curated by Andrea Arroyo in collaboration with Imre and Lorna Kepes of the Guatemala Art and Culture Connection whose mission is to utilize art as a means of connecting people across borders and cultures. The project also helps support the artists and local programs. Exhibition dates: June 23-July 26, 2017. Opening Reception: Friday, June 23, 6-7:30pm Gallery Hrs: Mon-Thur: 10-6pm and by appointment. Free and open to the public

John Giorno —the first major U.S. exhibition about the American poet, artist, activist and muse John Giorno—will open simultaneously across 13 locations in New York City. I ? John Giorno is a work of art by Giorno's husband, the Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone. The exhibition is a celebration of the life and work of John Giorno—an artist whose work has influenced generations. Taking place in his chosen hometown, the exhibition affords a unique opportunity for Giorno's contributions to be recognized within the canons of American poetry and art history, and celebrates the artist's 80th birthday. I ? John Giorno is an unprecedented collaboration between leading non-profit and alternative spaces across New York, which are joining forces for the first time to mount a multilayered exhibition on a single subject. Partner venues include: Artists Space, High Line Art, Howl! Happening, Hunter College Art Galleries, The Kitchen, New Museum, Red Bull Arts New York, Rubin Museum of Art, Sky Art, Swiss Institute, White Columns, and 80WSE Gallery. Reconfigured as a festival, including installations in galleries and public spaces, as well as a full roster of public programs and events, I ? John Giorno is free and open to the public. Expanding upon the exhibition that took place at Palais de Tokyo in Paris from October 2015 to January 2016, I ? John Giorno has been re-conceptualized specifically for New York, highlighting Giorno's significant relationship with the city, and his singular role in creating and fostering community here. The 18-part exhibition has been divided by Rondinone into chapters reflecting the layers of Giorno's life and work, his longstanding influence on and dedication to his chosen hometown of New York City, and his relationships with artist friends, lovers and collaborators including: Richard Bosman, Phong Bui, Angela Bulloch, Anne Collier, Verne Dawson, Judith Eisler, John Giorno, Mark Handforth, Matthew Higgs, Pierre Huyghe, Françoise Janicot, Scott King, Elizabeth Peyton, Ugo Rondinone, Erik Satie, Kendall Shaw, Michael Stipe, Billy Sullivan, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Peter Ungerleider, Joan Wallace, and Andy Warhol, whose work will be presented as part of the festival.

- Dia - Chelsea
Through July 29, 2017 - New York

Dia presents an exhibition of Kishio Suga's work at Dia:Chelsea at 541 West 22nd Street in New York City. Suga is a founding member of Mono-ha (School of Things), which emerged in Japan in the 1960s and 1970s and developed in parallel with Postminimal and Land art in the United States and Arte Povera in Europe—movements at the core of Dia's permanent collection. Curated by Jessica Morgan and Alexis Lowry, this is Suga's first solo museum show in the United States. In this exhibition, Suga responds to the building's unique history as a marble-cutting facility by recreating his Placement of Condition (1973), a signature installation of cut stones that lean precariously away from each other, but are bound together with wire into a mutually dependent and stable network. This work is on view alongside a selection of other significant historical installations and new works conceived specifically for Dia that explore issues of balance and structure and that respond to the physical parameters of the space. His new commission investigates material equilibrium through a series of interweaving metal rods that are perched on top of wooden uprights. Kishio Suga is made possible by significant support from Marissa Sackler. Generous support is also provided by Blum & Poe, Frances Bowes, Nathalie and Charles de Gunzburg, and Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, with additional support from Estrellita B. Brodsky and the Japan Foundation, New York.

Cookie Lavagetto Memorabilia Collection on Steiner Auctions Block - Steiner Sports
Through July 29, 2017 - New Rochelle

New York, July 12 — The memorabilia collection of fabled Brooklyn Dodgers third baseman and Oakland, California favorite son Harry Arthur “Cookie” Lavagetto is on the Steiner Auctions online auction block, and will include such vintage collectibles as a baseball signed by Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lavagetto’s game-used baseball glove from the 1940’s, a Dodgers team autographed baseball that includes signatures of such immortals as Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese, and Lavagetto’s 1948 Oakland Acorns Pacific Coast League Championship ring. His son Ernie has put the memorabilia up for bids in the Mid-Summer Classic Auction, which continues through July 29th. Visit steinerauctions.com to bid and for more details. Lovagetto’s Silver Lifetime Pass presented by Major League Baseball, an autographed Honus Wagner photograph, and a baseball signed by legendary manager Casey Stengel are also up for grabs. Lavagetto is perhaps best known for breaking up the no-hitter of Yankees pitcher Bill Bevens in Game 4 of the 1947 World Series at Ebbets Field with two outs in the ninth inning, in what became known as the “Cookie Game.” Lavagetto’s first professional team was the Oakland Oaks in his hometown, where he was tagged with the nickname “Cookie” after one of the team’s owners. He then played 10 seasons in the National League with the Pittsburgh Pirates (1934-36) and most notably with the Brooklyn Dodgers (1937-41 and 1946-47, missing four seasons serving in the United States Navy during World War II). He finished his career returning to the Oaks for two seasons (1948-50). Lavagetto later managed in the majors with the Washington Senators and Minnesota Twins. In all, more than 1,000 pieces of memorabilia are on the block. New York Yankees rookie sensation Aaron Judge blasted a homerun in his first Major League at-bat last August 13th, and that game-used jersey worn by the All-Star outfielder spearheads the multitude of baseball memorabilia. The current bid on the uniform No. 99 Judge jersey from his debut is $21,438. A bevy of immortal All-Star collectibles are on the block including the legendary Mickey Mantle, whose 1957 All-Star Game Used and Signed Bat has a current bid $48,721, as well as Ty Cobb (Rare Bold Sweet Spot Signed Official American League baseball), Carl Yastrzemski (Rawling’s Career 7-Time Gold Glove Award), Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig (Dual Signed Official American League Baseball), just to name a few. A baseball signed by 18 iconic All-Stars including Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, Stan Musial, Tom Seaver and 10 other greats is sure to spark spirited bidding.

Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection - MoMA PS1
Through July 30, 2017 - Long Island City

This exhibition brings together work made in the past decade by more than a dozen artists. These recent additions to the Museum's collection explore the unrest, anxiety, and critical reflection that characterizes our world. Responding to today's fierce identity politics and crises of truth, the exhibition includes artworks that construct imagined scenarios or use observation of real events in subjective depictions. In particular, the works consider the vagaries of state violence, the implications of global capitalism, and the contemporary reverberations of transatlantic slavery. These artists look back to traditions both within and beyond the visual arts, such as readymade sculpture, film montage, and folk storytelling, to imagine possibilities for an uncertain future. The exhibition includes works by John Akomfrah, Jonathas de Andrade, Anna Boghiguian, Samuel Fosso, Iman Issa, Cameron Rowland, Wolfgang Tillmans, Kara Walker, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, among others. Organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art and Director MoMA PS1; Lucy Gallun, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art; Christian Rattemeyer, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints; and Yasmil Raymond, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture. Allianz is a partner of contemporary art at MoMA. Additional support for Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection is provided by the Annual Exhibition Fund.

Casual Casual Boutique Taylor Skirt Taylor Boutique Ann Ann g6qYzvgw
Through July 30, 2017 - New York

Arts Brookfield presents Colette Miller's Global Angels Wings Project in Houston after two successful exhibitions in Los Angeles and Perth, Australia. Three sets of beautifully painted wings have been commissioned for 1600 Smith, one set inside the lobby and two sets outside at the Smith Street lawn. LA?based musician, filmmaker and visual artist Colette Miller asks everyone to "manifest as your higher selves, your higher consciousness, your angelic selves" as you discover The Global Angel Wings Project. ABOUT COLETTE MILLER I have always been creative—visually in my paintings and film-making; musically through my band, DayGlo Aborigines. Past bands include GWAR, Milk and Blest. Art has continued to define most of my life's purpose since graduating Art School at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, continuing film studies at UCLA, editing, filming for Econews, independent documentary film projects in Burkina Faso on the water shortage, and on The Global Angels Wings Project with the Kayole Wings Miller boxing Club in Kenya. My art is inspired by my heart, dreams, philosophies, memories, psychic or intuitive forces and color and movement. I never consider a painting finished until I reach a point of love for the piece, a certain wholeness and completeness; where nothing essentially nags at me, telling me its not done. I believe successful art tends to invoke a type of meditation or mind travel.

Secrets and Seawalls - South Street Seaport Museum
Through July 30, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum and Kinesis Project dance theatre present Secrets and Seawalls a collaborative experiment of dance and architecture July 20, 27 & 30, 2017 aboard the 1885 cargo ship Wavertree The South Street Seaport Museum and Kinesis Project dance theatre present Secrets and Seawalls on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 7pm; Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 7pm; and Sunday, July 30, 2017 at 5pm aboard the restored 1885 full-rigged cargo sailing ship Wavertree.

VIP experience includes exclusive pre-show tour of Wavertree and after show meet and greet with the performers. Tickets are available at https://southstreetseaportmuseum.org/secrets-and-seawalls/.   Secrets and Seawalls is an evening of dance in two distinct acts. Inspired by storms and disruption, Melissa Riker, in collaboration with architect Lee H. Skolnick, FAIA, uses methods of dance and architecture to explore vulnerability, power, and how each are revealed. Dancers whisper across an expanse; stealing and sharing secrets in a shifting, immersive environment. The piece is spurred by questions: Does power exist in the structures we create? In the way we withhold information? Or, is it in the vulnerability revealed before the storm? The work premiered along the beach at Fort Tilden in Gateway National Park, The Rockaways in 2015.    "The partnership with architect Lee H. Skolnick is apparent as the audience is coaxed along the promenade by the dancers who, like mischievous water nymphs, lure you to a graffiti-strewn concrete carcass where they are perfectly framed; dip diving through the building's shell." -The Dance Enthusiast   "The Kinesis Project dance troupe turned the Fort Tilden shoreline into an outdoor theatre...Using the expanse of the abandoned graffiti'ed buildings, the beach and ocean's edge as their performance space..." -THE WAVE, Rockaway Beach, NY, November 20, 2015   Secrets and Seawalls stems from the choreographer's questions about the integrity of NYC's seawalls and the impact of weather. Working in collaboration with architect Lee Skolnick, Riker and Skolnick use the lenses of their respective art forms to create a dance work that tracks vulnerability in ourselves and in structures. Choreography by Melissa Riker, in full collaboration with the dancers. Dancers: Cassandra Cotta, Zachary Denison, Michelle Amara Micca, Zoe Allocco. Concept collaboration: Lee Skolnick, FAIA. Costumes by Asa Thornton.  Live Music by Katie Down, Helen Yee and Michael Evans.    Melissa Riker is Artistic Director and Choreographer of Kinesis Project dance theatre. She is a New York City dancer and choreographer who emerged as a strong performance and creative voice as the NYC dance and circus worlds combined during the 90's. Riker's dances and aesthetic layer her training as a classical dancer, martial artist, theatre choreographer and aerial performer. She creates dances on site - and in context. Riker invents large-scale out-door performances and spontaneous moments of dance for individuals and corporate clients. Audiences and critics have called Riker's work "a Marx Brothers' routine with soul," "A movable feast." And from The New York Times, her choreography is: "comically acrobatic, gracefully classical, visually arresting."   Kinesis Project is a dance organization that produces dance concerts, facilitates educational programs and creates site-specific performances with diverse communities. A company at the forefront of the international discussion of placemaking, art engagement and the cultural imperative of art in public space, Kinesis Project dance theatre invents large scale, space-changing, breath-taking experiences.    Since 2005, Kinesis Project's work has been experienced in San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Vermont, Florida and in New York City at such venerable venues as Danspace Project, Judson Church, Joyce Soho, The Minskoff Theatre, The Cunningham Studio, West End Theatre and Dixon Place.  The company dances outside in sculpture gardens, universities, and annually since 2006 in Battery Park's Bosque Gardens and The Cloisters Lawn as well as hosting over 30 surprise performances all over New York City and the tri-state area as an element of the company's earned income and outreach programming with volunteer populated flashmobs. Residencies include: Earthdance 2006, Omi International Arts Center 2008, Kaatsbaan International Dance Center 2011, TheaterLab 2014, Adelphi University 2014.

Ms. Riker has received commissions from Carson Fox and the Ephemeral Festival in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 for large-scale outdoor events, NYU in 1998, for an outdoor work long before "flashmob" was coined, 2006 and 2008 grants from the Puffin Foundation for her work Community Movements, a dance work with community volunteers, Fellowships from the Dodge Foundation, Space Grant Residencies from 92nd St Y, The New 42nd St Studio, Gibney Dance Center, and The Joyce Theatre Foundation, and grants from The Bowick Family Trust and John C. Robinson to support the continued work of Kinesis Project dance theatre.   Lee H. Skolnick, FAIA (collaborating architect) seeks to synthesize art, science, and architecture to create memorable and meaningful experiences. He unlocks each project's "motivating story" to inspire imagination, curiosity, and understanding. For over 35 years, Mr. Skolnick has passionately developed and pursued his philosophy of "design as interpretation," wherein he seeks to unearth the unique themes and compelling concepts which characterize each project, and to translate them into concrete expression. Breaking down the barriers between disciplines, Mr. Skolnick has created an extraordinary firm where more than 35 designers and educators work in close collaboration. By making a thorough exploration and translation of content the starting point for design, he has brought depth, authenticity, and vision to an enormous array of diverse projects around the world. His museum, cultural institution, and residential projects have been recognized as works of fresh innovation and inspiration. Mr. Skolnick has employed his integrated design philosophy on projects for such clients as the Aileron Center for Entrepreneurial Education in Dayton, OH; the Sony Wonder Technology Lab in New York, Muzeiko: The America for Bulgaria Children's Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria; the Paley Center for Media in New York and Los Angeles; the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC; the Creative Discovery Museum in Chattanooga, TN; the New-York Historical Society; the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY; the Cooper Hewitt National Museum for Design in New York and the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, KY, among many others.

He has served on panels and juries for the New York State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Institute of Architects. He is also a frequent lecturer, instructor, and author of scholarly papers and popular works, and is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Leicester, England. Since the 1980s, he has been awarded Architectural Digest's "AD100," Cooper Union's "Achievers Under 40," House & Garden's "Design Obsession," the Presidential Citation for Outstanding Achievement from The Cooper Union, "The Most Innovative" by The Best of the Best Luxury Homes magazine, "The Best of the Best" Home Book's House of the Year, and local, state and national AIA Honor Awards. In 2003, Mr. Skolnick was elevated to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows. In 2007, he coauthored the exceptional book What is Exhibition Design?; an unparalleled handbook that explores what constitutes successful design and clarifies the roles of the various disciplines involved in exhibition design while exploring how new technologies expand the possibilities for both form and function. In 2008, Architecture Omi, an ambitious new project in Columbia County, New York, named Mr. Skolnick as its first Chairman of the Board. Architecture Omi is part of Omi International Arts Center, a renowned not-for-profit art program that provides artist residency programs and outdoor exhibition spaces on its rural campus, where a collaborative environment flourishes between artists from multiple disciplines. Architecture Omi seeks to explore the myriad intersections of architecture, art, nature and human structure.   The 1885 ship Wavertree has a well-documented and fascinating history. Built in Southampton, Great Britain, she circled the Earth four times in her career, carrying a wide variety of cargoes. The ship called on New York in 1895, no doubt one of hundreds like her berthed in the city. In 1910, after twenty-five years of sailing, she was caught in a Cape Horn storm that tore down her masts and ended her career as a cargo ship. She was salvaged and used as a floating warehouse and then a sand barge in South America, where the waterfront workers referred to her as "el gran Valero," the great sailing ship, because even without her masts she was obviously a great windjammer. She was saved by the Seaport Museum in 1968 and towed to New York to become the iconic centerpiece of the "Street of Ships" at South Street. The 132-year-old Wavertree, built of riveted wrought iron, is an archetype of the sailing cargo ships of the latter half of the 19th century that during the "age of sail" lined South Street by the dozens, creating a forest of masts from the Battery to the Brooklyn Bridge. The $13 million restoration of Wavertree was managed by the Department of Design and Construction, and fully funded through the City's Department of Cultural Affairs with support from the Mayor's Office, the City Council, and Manhattan Borough President's Office. Restoration work took place at the Caddell Dry Dock in Staten Island. Five months out of the water were spent on extensive hull repairs; along with replacement of two of the ship's decks and a massive rigging restoration, the project returned the vessel to the condition she was in when she last sailed in 1910.    ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

Times Square Arts Presents Sun Xun's Time Spy - Times Square
Through July 31, 2017 - New York

In partnership with the Audemars Piguet Art Commission, Times Square Arts presents artist Sun Xun’s Time Spy on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in July. This project is a part of Midnight Moment, a monthly presentation by The Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. One of China’s most prominent young artists, Sun Xun created Time Spy for the second Audemars Piguet Art Commission in partnership with Sean Kelly Gallery, Edouard Malingue Gallery and Shanghart Gallery as part of a large-scale immersive multimedia installation first presented during Art Basel in Miami Beach in December 2016. A violin with wings flies through a sky filled with spinning moons, while rotating machinery gives way to strange landscapes and pressure valves. These chimerical images come together in Sun Xun’s Time Spy, a 3D animated film created from thousands of individual hand-carved woodcuts. Hundreds of Chinese art students assisted Xun in carving each frame of the film, juxtaposing traditional and analog illustration methods with modern 3D animation across digital screens in a way that turns the antithetical into the elegant. The film employs images of traditional Chinese themes like the five elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth) in a symbolic exploration of the nature of time and how we try to make sense of it. Free 3D glasses will be distributed every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for passersby to view the animated film in three dimensions.

Exhibition Lexicon of Tanja Ostoji? - Museum of Contemporary Art
Through July 31, 2017 - Novi Beograd

The exhibition will be opened by Frank Baumann, the director of the Goethe-Institut Belgrade, Dr Zoran Eri?, the chief of the Department of art collections and exhibitions at the MoCAB, and the author herself, artist Tanja Ostoji?. Lexicon of Tanja Ostoji? (2011–17) is a long-term interdisciplinary participatory research project in which online social media networks as well as collaborations with women sharing the same first name and family name have been utilised. The name-sisters are of diverse nationalities, diverse ages, different levels of education, professions, social backgrounds and life experiences, but all of them are able to communicate in the Serbo-Croatian language and they or their parents originate from the SFRY. Through personalised sociological research, interviews and direct social and creative exchange, the Berlin-based artist Tanja Ostoji? creates maps that document the ways in which over 30 project participants?33 name-sisters—have migrated (during and after the war, or for economic reasons), and which identity and gender issues concern them. One of the projects portrays the labour conditions of the name sisters including unemployment, underpay and exploitation. The exhibition has a number of sections including sociological research archive, collective and individual art works produced in creative workshops, photo and video documentation from gatherings that took place. The works in terracotta were created in 2013 at the symposium TERRA in Kikinda, whereas the works in the technique of documentary embroidery were made in collaboration with the Belgrade-based artist Vahida Ramujki? at workshops organised on the premises of the Goethe-Institut Belgrade in January 2017, Museum of Contemporary Art Banja Luka, March 2017, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb in April 2017. Socio-anthropological research is realized during Ostoji?´s research fellowship at the Graduate Forum University of Art Berlin (2012-14). Over the course of the dynamic realisation of the project the artist established successful collaborations with the Goethe-Institut Belgrade and four Museums of Contemporary Art in the region where the most name-sisters are based: (Banja Luka, Zagreb, Belgrade and Rijeka). Beside creative workshops at the above institutions, guided tours were conducted through the current exhibitions and museum collections for the project participants who during the project's development and realisation began to discover and develop their artistic potential. Exhibition includes large format drawing, double photo portraits of the name-sisters, documentary embroidery wall installation, small terracotta sculptures, interviews in text format, video and other archival material. Interviews with the name sisters and their favourite recipes are an integral part of the exhibition and the eponymous book (Lexicon of Tanja Ostoji?) to be published by the end of the year by Live Arts Development Agency London and MoCA Belgrade. After Belgrade, the exhibition will move to the Atelier of MMCA Rijeka (from August 10th to September 7th, 2017), where another workshop with the most actively involved project participants is planned. Documentary embroidery is a technique intended for the documentation of social reality, which from 2008 onwards has been developed by Vahida Ramujki? and Aviv Kruglanski. Documentary embroidery, as its name suggests, is a documentary technique which has as its foundation the traditional technique of embroidery—now employed in a new context—enabling collective self-reflection and the self-representation of an ever more complex and layered reality and the relations within it. This technique has been practised in diverse geographic locations and social environments, and in terms of the representation of reality it is more efficient then the latest digital photo and video technologies because, as its authors say, it requires more time to produce less information (images). The sluggishness of this technique is in fact its advantage since it enables the participants to spend more time together, with people, discussing and contrasting diverse viewpoints and opinions which are slowly woven onto the canvas, creating a complex composition with mutually interconnected elements. Together with a group of name-sisters, women gathered around the interdisciplinary project Lexicon of Tanja Ostoji?, Tanja Ostoji? and Vahida Ramujki? over the course of three consecutive workshops (each around three days long) have completed a large-scale tapestry. In various ways, this work reflects the specificities of the position of female identity vis-à-vis work, knowledge, community and other major existential issues, generating a complex and nuanced representation of these essential conditions. The work is the common property of all the participants in the project. Tanja Ostoji? (born in 1972 in Užice, SFRY) is a Berlin-based performance and interdisciplinary artist who studied art in Serbia, France and Germany. She includes herself as a character in performances and uses diverse media in her artistic researches, thereby examining social configurations, power relationships, feminist issues, economy and biopolitics. She works predominantly from the migrant woman's perspective, while political positioning, humour and integration of the recipient define approaches in her work. Since 1994, she presented her work in a large number of exhibitions, venues and festivals around the world, including: Feminism is Politics! at Pratt Manhattan Gallery New York (2016), Busan Biennale, South Korea (2016), Homosexualität_en, Deutsches Historisches Museum Berlin (2015), Economy, CCA Glasgow (2013), Tanja Ostoji?: Body, Politics, Agency, Škuc Gallery, Ljubljana (2012), Call the Witness, Roma Pavilion, Venice Biennale (2011), Global Feminisms, Brooklyn Museum New York (2006), Plato of Humankind, Venice Biennale 2001. She has given talks, lectures and workshops at academic conferences and at art universities worldwide. Ostoji?´s work is the subject of referential theoretical writings and a part of important public collections. She published a number of books including Lexicon of Tanja Ostoji?, UdK Berlin (2014), Integration Impossible? The Politics of Migration in the Artwork of Tanja Ostoji?, M. Gržini? and T. Ostoji? eds., argobooks, Berlin 2009, and Strategies of Success / Curators Series 2001–2003, La Box, Bourges and SKC, Belgrade, 2004.

Michel Houellebecq: French Bashing - Venus Over Manhattan
Through August 04, 2017 - New York

VENUS PRESENTS FIRST U.S. EXHIBITION WITH ICONOCLASTIC FRENCH NOVELIST AND ARTIST MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ (New York, NY) – Beginning June 2, 2017, VENUS is pleased to present French Bashing, an exhibition of photographs, photomontages and related work by best-selling French novelist Michel Houellebecq, one of Europe's most controversial cultural figures. Comprising two distinct environments conceived specifically by Houellebecq for VENUS, the show is his first in the United States. It will remain on view through August 4th. Although Michel Houellebecq (b. 1958, La Reunion, France) has taken pictures for decades, he began exhibiting these images only a few years ago. Houellebecq's photography is intimately linked to his writing practice, and he often composes scenes in his books while looking at a photograph he shot. At the invitation of Jean de Loisy, the President of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Houellebecq conceived and mounted his first exhibition in 2016 – an ambitious multipart presentation called Rester Vivant (To Stay Alive), foregrounding his photography against a dense multimedia narrative that unfolded through a sequence of galleries. For French Bashing at VENUS, Houellebecq has re-conceptualized and tailored two portions of Rester Vivant, completely transforming the gallery's New York space with darkened walls, engineered lighting, floor coverings, and immersive soundscapes composed in collaboration with Raphae?l Sohier. French Bashing provides two visions of Western Europe as expressed by Michel Houellebecq. On view in the first room at VENUS is a set of photographs that variously depict train stations, tollbooths, apartment buildings, and movie theaters. Hung on darkly painted walls and individually lit with framing projectors, these images assemble a dystopian vision of France familiar from Houellebecq's novels. Bleakly desaturated, the photographs capture the atmosphere of what Houellebecq calls "peri-urban" zones: despondent suburban areas surrounding larger cities where homes are valued according to their proximity to arteries of public transportation. Houellebecq superimposes lines from his novels and poetry onto some of these photographs. The first image visitors encounter in the exhibition bears the sentence, "It's time to place your bets," a quotation from Houellebecq's poem "The Memory of the Sea;" the right panel of a large triptych bears a phrase from Houellebecq's 2015 novel, Submission: "I had no more reason to kill myself than most of these people did." In concert with Sohier's ambient soundtrack, these enigmatic and provocative bits of language contribute to an ominous feeling throughout the space. Houellebecq's point is driven home by the image of a crumbling concrete sign of the word "EUROPE," suggesting a vision of a continent on the verge of decomposition. In the next room, Houellebecq has produced an environment of a distinctly different nature. Here the floor is covered with garish laminated placemats advertising such tourist destinations as St. Tropez and Port-la-Nouvelle. Hung on bright white walls with fluorescent lighting, a group of photographs converge around visions of tourism. Heavily saturated images depict kitschy tour buses, coastal views, and beachside condos in France and Spain. One of these offers an aerial view of a Leader Price discount store that appears wedged into the side of a mountain. Like the images in the first room, the scenes Houellebecq shows here are eerily uninhabited. But in this well-lit space, elements of the natural world seem to encroach upon disused manmade structures. A brighter soundtrack, also composed by Sohier, fills the space with the sounds of vacation towns: children playing, people laughing, and the audio evidence of merriment in the distance. ABOUT MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ Michel Houellebecq's reputation as one of France's most provocative cultural figures has grown over the course of his nearly three-decade career, through a series of novels that address subjects as varied as Islam, sexual tourism, and contemporary art. Widely discussed and often hotly contested, Houellebecq is also one of France's most critically acclaimed novelists. In 2010, his book about the contemporary art world, La carte et le territoire (The Map and the Territory), was awarded the Prix Goncourt, France's highest literary honor. In 2015, Houellebecq published Soumission (Submission), a novel about the democratic election of a Muslim president who unexpectedly decides to govern the French state according to strict Islamic law. In a macabre turn of events, Houellebecq's novel was published on the same day as the tragic Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris; in a dark coincidence, that week's issue of the magazine featured a cartoon of Houellebecq on the cover, alongside the caption "The Predictions of Wizard Houellebecq." Houellebecq's production, however, has never been limited to writing, and in 2016, he mounted a widely discussed and extremely well attended exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo called Rester Vivant (To Stay Alive), which featured a sweeping multimedia installation of Houellebecq's photography, filmmaking, and writing.

Following up on "Parallal Man", the Ken Silverman Trio has now released "Guitar Fantasies (SoundSeer).

CLUTCH PRODUCTIONS, in association with JOSIAH GRIMM, is pleased to announce the world premiere production of Maggie Moore and Julia Sears’ BULLET CATCHERS, with music directed by Yeujia Low, directed by Julia Sears. BULLET CATCHERS will play a limited engagement at Off-Broadway’s Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Square Park South). Performances begin Thursday, July 20 (7:30 p.m.) and continue through Saturday, August 5. Opening Night is Saturday, July 22 (7 p.m.). Tickets are $20 at www.bulletcatcherstheplay.com/tickets. A 'bullet catcher' is Army slang for an infantryman. They live and die on the frontlines and carry this nickname like a badge of honor. It’s a sacrifice that few are willing to make. The honorable men who volunteer for this service don’t take it lightly. Neither do the women. Set in the not too distant future, BULLET CATCHERS follows the first official mixed gender infantry unit in the U.S. Army, from training to deployment. In the throes of war, they must face what it means to be a soldier, a unit, and a part of history. Told in part through dance, music, and poetry, BULLET CATCHERS is a new, collaboratively written play based on interviews with current service members and veterans, as well as members of our own ensemble. All the stars of the production have been involved with the creation of the piece and are credited as co-writers, additionally those marked with an M are military veterans. The production stars Adrienne BrammerM (Blueprint Specials at Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum; Our Trojan War at BAM) as Sergeant Kalli Kovas/Co-writer/Veteran Liaison, Rebecca Hirota* (Vietgone at Manhattan Theatre Club; Romeo & Juliet at Classic Stage Company) as Sergeant Athena Pajau Yan Kostopolis /Co-writer, Sandra W.

Show and Tell: Stories in Chinese Painting - The Met
Through August 06, 2017 - New York

In China, paintings that tell stories serve as powerful vehicles to promote political agendas, endorse cultural values, or express personal thoughts. With masterpieces dating from the fourth century, narrative is the earliest established genre in Chinese painting. This exhibition is the first at The Met to explore the various ways in which Chinese artists have gone beyond mere illustration to convey multiple layers of meaning. Displaying works from the 12th century to the present, this exhibition introduces three distinct modes of pictorial storytelling: multipart illustrations presented in long handscrolls, often punctuated with passages of text; single iconic scenes that evoke an entire story; and generic landscapes or flower-and-bird paintings that acquire narrative significance through the artist's inscription. The exhibition is further organized by theme: historical events, seasonal progression, warfare, journeys, Buddhist and Confucian values, and family and friendship. One special gallery focuses on a grandiose military narrative—that of China's annexation of East Turkestan in the 1750s. The installation, a collaboration among three Museum departments, features a suite of European engravings alongside Chinese weaponry and a painting to show how an emperor exploited art for his own aggrandizement. Contemporary Chinese artists have continued the narrative tradition with an expanded repertoire of subjects and approaches. The examples on display range from reflections on the creative process to critiques of modern technology and government policies. Together, the approximately 60 pictorial works and 30 decorative art objects, most from The Met collection, present a comprehensive view of the narrative genre, demonstrating its expressive versatility and continuing relevance.

Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored Possession (1994), inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire.

And in ReComposed, inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s Dystopia.

Within this intensely intimate work, we explore the physicality of fulfillment and disappointment, and the tension between the comfort one finds in community and the stifling pressure to conform. in the shelter of the fold is comprised of a cycle of six imagistic dances that can be shown as stand-alone works or as an interrelated episodic event. The dance’s score comprises works by six of the most innovative 21st century composers working today. RECOMPOSED (2015), Music by Michael Gordon ReComposed is a visual dance creation inspired by American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, set to Michael Gordon’s explosive score, Dystopia. With gestural, sometimes violent brushwork, Mitchell described her paintings as “an organism that turns in space.” I recognize this visceral energy within my own dance making, creating human moving landscapes that hauntingly echo Mitchell’s explosions on canvas. “Varone created a moving work of art.” - The Durham Herald “Mr. Varone is uncommonly adept in setting a stage aswirl with lines of energy. Bodies tangle and untangle at high speed, with limbs loosely flying, and if their paths left marks in the air, the result might indeed resemble one of the Mitchell pastels that are the inspiration for ‘ReComposed.’” - The New York Times POSSESSION (1994), Music by Philip Glass “Through lashing movement sprung from ordinary gesture, along with evocative lifts, holds and falls, ‘Possession’ evokes the temper of our time – equal parts isolation, anxiety, violence and anomie.” - New York Magazine THE FABULIST (2014), Music by David Lang “Varone is, I believe, a great humanist. Something, probably honesty, makes his movement powerfully touching – you feel like he is telling you secrets in the dark. I was brought to tears by this sight and pretty much all of the dance. If Varone has ever interested you, do not miss this solo.” - Five Points LUX (2006), Music by Philip Glass “Luxuriant. ‘Lux’ is all about freedom. It is what dancing really feels like, the kind of dancing I might dream about: loose and sweeping in a spirit of exultation. Varone puts the beating heart at the center of his work.” - The Washington Post STRICT LOVE (1994), Musical selections from various popular artists “This gray persona, which all the dancers took on, juxtaposed to the music, which included Diana Ross’s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,’ was bizarre and fascinating. ‘Strict Love’ was one of those dances that leaves audiences begging for more.” - The Daily Gazette STRIPPED/DRESSED: A unique concept for an evening of dance Building off the huge success of Varone’s sold-out NYC studio series, STRIPPED, Varone is taking his idea to the Mainstage as a way of opening dialogues with new dance presenters and their audiences nationwide. It opens doors for new dance audiences, allowing them to literally see the process of how a dance unfolds from beginnings to fruition in one evening. * STRIPPED: Varone’s articulate and insightful way of dissecting his choreography for dance audiences helps to demystify the art form for many viewers, and provides an overture for experiencing his work. The first half of the evening, with Varone as MC, provides an intimate look at his creative process. The Company, dressed in only rehearsal clothes, under simple lights, presents a detailed look into the intricacies of how dances are created and performed * DRESSED: After a short Q&A and an intermission, the Company returns with the second half of the evening: presenting fully produced dances, complete with lights and costumes.

Holly Bowling - Cutting Room
Through August 06, 2017 - New York

Holly Bowling is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There's one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly's devotion to the legendary rock band Phish. Having attended over 300 shows by the Burlington-based quartet, she became obsessed by their famous rendition of "Tweezer" from Lake Tahoe on July 31, 2013. It led Holly to transcribe this 37-minute improvisational masterpiece note-for-note and arrange it for solo piano. The process, both painstaking and fulfilling, inspired her to transform other Phish songs and well-known live jams into solo piano interpretations. Holly's breathtaking renditions of Phish classics like "It's Ice," "The Squirming Coil" and "Harry Hood" serve not only as a tribute to the modern day kings of jam, but stand on their own as fully developed classical pieces. The past year has seen Holly expand her repertoire into the realm of the Grateful Dead, including an "Eyes of the World" based on the band's spectacular exploratory June 18, 1974 performance at Freedom Hall. Using classical piano technique to reinterpret these jamband luminaries, Holly's live performances infuse new with old, tradition with surreal, and creates a concert experience like nothing else in the music world.

Hansel & Gretel - Park Avenue Armory
Through August 06, 2017 - NEW YORK

"[Herzog & de Meuron] are always dedicated to enlarging experience where others would flatten it, and heightening the specifics of a place when there are pressures to erase them. They are champions of nuance." — Architectural Review "…it is the essence of Ai's activism: …work that unleashes the political power of art." — The Guardian (UK) Pritzker Prize-winning architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron and artist/activist Ai Weiwei explore the meaning of public space in our surveillance-laden world, referencing the story of Hansel and Gretel in which the children lose their way and feel a sense of menace in a space they know and trust. The artists take advantage of the vast openness of the Drill Hall, creating a 21st century public place in which the environment is disconcerting, the entrance is unexpected, and every movement is tracked and surveyed by drones and communicated to an unknown public. The work builds on the artists' shared practice as designers of form and investigation (the Beijing Olympic Stadium and "quite simply the best summer Serpentine Pavilion ever" according to Time Out London) and their deep interest in the public realm whether through activism or architecture. Ai Weiwei has described their collaborations as follows: "My experience of working with Jacques and Pierre is that we never think separately. It's like three soldiers in the war—and that's a good feeling: we have a constant understanding."

Through August 06, 2017 - Midtown

PHISH has announced plans for The Baker's Dozen, an unprecedented 13-night run at New York City's Madison Square Garden, set for Friday, July 21 through Sunday, August 6. The Baker's Dozen brings the band's total performances at the famed arena to a remarkable 52 in the years since their Garden debut in December of 1994. With these 2017 performances, PHISH joins a small, elite group of artists that have played over 50 shows at Madison Square Garden, including Elton John, Billy Joel and the Grateful Dead. Tickets to The Baker's Dozen will be available as a 13-show package for the price of 12, or as individual nights. An online ticket request period for individual tickets and Baker's Dozen packages are available now at Phish Tickets through Sunday, February 12 at 11:59 pm ET. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 17 at Noon ET at Ticketmaster only. If tickets remain, they will be available at the Madison Square Garden box office starting on Saturday, February 18 at 10AM. As with Phish's most recent runs at The Garden, all floor tickets will be General Admission. The band's latest studio album, BIG BOAT, released last October via their own JEMP Records, was called "their most relatable album ever" by Rolling Stone. NPR said, "After years of revealing itself through flurries of notes, hypnotic grooves and exploratory improvisations that often masked deeper meaning, Phish now seems most engaged when singing from the heart." PHISH recently kicked off 2017 by returning to Riviera Maya's Barceló Maya Beach for their second annual four-night all-inclusive concert vacation. All shows are available for download exclusively at LivePhish.com or streaming via the LivePhish app. The band will not be touring in the fall of 2017.

Tickets ($18) are available online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2954473 or by calling 1-800-838-3006. The performance will run approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission. In 2013, Jessica vanished. Now, her closest friends are reconstructing her with cutting-edge technology to try and track her down. They prime the android with memories from Jessica’s past, but it’s clear that their stories don’t add up. As Jessica’s friends fight for ownership over an artificial Jessica, the android listens, learns, and plays along. Suddenly, the line between robot and real life is very, very thin. Written by a playwright who “daylights” as a software engineer, Jessica dissolves the metallic glamour of traditional science fiction and delivers a jarring encounter with artificial intelligence. Jessica won Sanguine Theatre Company’s 2017 Project Playwright Festival. The play was chosen from hundreds of submissions to receive its world premiere as part of Sanguine’s 2017 season.

Making Space: Women Artists and Post War Abstraction - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through August 13, 2017 - New York

(now-8/13) Making Space: Women Artists & Postwar Abstractions at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Making Space shines a spotlight on the stunning but still relatively under-recognized achievements of women artists between the end of World War II (1945) and the start of the Feminist movement (around 1968). In the postwar era, societal shifts made it possible for larger numbers of women to work professionally as artists, yet their work was often dismissed in the male dominated art world, and few support networks existed for them. Abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years, as many artists working in the aftermath of World War II sought an international language that might transcend national and regional narratives—and for women artists, additionally, those relating to gender.

The exhibition will examine the strong connections between France, primarily for luxury, and Austria with the United States, as talent and craftsmanship, urbanity and experimentation, including in the world of jazz and cinema, flowed back and forth across the Atlantic. The Jazz Age will be curated by Sarah D. Coffin, Curator and Head of Product Design and Decorative Arts, and Stephen Harrison, Curator of Decorative Art and Design at the Cleveland Museum of Art. An extensively illustrated accompanying catalogue authored by the exhibition's curatorial team, will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.

Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974) - American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

This survey, the first museum exhibition on Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974) in the United States, coincides with the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of this revered and distinctive Italian artist—a canonical art brut figure included in Jean Dubuffet's collection from the 1960s. The show highlights four distinct phases in Zinelli's oeuvre and new scholarship, through a selection of fifty-five paintings (many displayed double-sided), audio recordings of Zinelli, a film, and images by Life magazine photographer John Phillips. The exhibition brings together artworks from the American Folk Art Museum and other private and public collections from the United States and abroad, notably the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli, Verona, and the collection of Audrey B. Heckler, New York. Curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut. An exhibition brochure is available. The museum would like to thank the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli and Comune Di San Giovanni Lupatoto, Verona, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Gordon W. Bailey, Edward V. Blanchard Jr., Andrea Cairone and the John and Annamaria Phillips Foundation, Cavin-Morris Gallery, Audrey B. Heckler, Robert A. Roth, Amr Shaker, and the relatives of Carlo Zinelli for their generous loans to and support of the exhibition.

Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible - American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
Through August 20, 2017 - Manhattan

Throughout his life, Eugen Gabritschevsky displayed a precocious passion for the natural sciences, particularly entomology. Born in Russia, he completed advanced degrees in biology and genetics in Moscow, before pursuing postdoctoral studies in 1925 at Columbia University. Soon after he joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1927, his successful career was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931. There, and for the rest of his life, Gabritschevsky elaborated a prolific, refined, and heterogeneous body of work—gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper—imbued with his early scientific interests, observation skills, and a propensity for experimentation. This first in-depth exhibition of Gabritschevsky's relatively unknown artistic contribution is composed of more than eighty artworks, a film, publications, and archival documents. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, and La maison rouge, Paris. The New York presentation is curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut.

Divine Encounter: Rembrandt's Abraham and the Angels - Frick Collection
Through August 20, 2017 - New York

In the summer of 2017, The Frick Collection will present Rembrandt's Abraham Entertaining the Angels of 1646. This captivating, small, and luminous oil painting on panel, generously lent from a private collection, has been exhibited only a handful of times in its history and was last on public view ten years ago. This exceptional loan has inspired a tightly focused exhibition in which the painting will appear alongside other depictions by Rembrandt of the Old Testament figure Abraham — a spectacular selection of prints and drawings from American and international collections. Divine Encounter: Rembrandt's Abraham and the Angels will offer a rare opportunity to examine the artist's continuing engagement with the Abraham narrative and thus with the central themes of his work as a history painter: divine intervention, revelation, and prophecy. The exhibition is organized by Joanna Sheers Seidenstein, Anne L. Poulet Curatorial Fellow, and will be accompanied by a scholarly publication and a variety of educational programs. Spanning the late 1630s to the late 1650s, the works in the exhibition trace a shift in Rembrandt's approach to biblical subject matter. In them, the artist took a progressively deeper interest in the psychological content of the Abraham story, specifically the emotional experience of a father confronting the most magnificent of blessings and the most heartbreaking of losses. At the same time, Rembrandt also began to move away from the physicality and instantaneity of his earlier narrative work in favor of imagery characterized instead by an overwhelming sense of stillness and calm. These are the defining qualities of his 1646 Abraham Entertaining the Angels, in which the momentous nature of the event depicted is conveyed solely through light and a single, gently raised hand. This pivotal work in the artist's career depicts an episode from chapter 18 of Genesis in which Abraham and his wife, Sarah, are visited by three travelers. These strangers reveal their divine status when one of them announces, to the aged woman's disbelief, that she will give birth to a son in a year's time. This is the third instance in the Bible in which God appears — the text is explicit — to Abraham. What the patriarch actually saw and how to represent it were, however, matters of interpretation. In the 1646 painting and in a later etching of 1656 depicting the same episode, Rembrandt directly addressed this question, exploring in two very different ways the nature of divine presence and human perception thereof. Rembrandt continued to examine these themes in his other depictions of Abraham from the 1650s, as, for example, in his 1655 etching of the Sacrifice of Isaac — a deeply moving scene of physical encounter in which Abraham hears and feels but does not see the angel who has come to save his son. Other highlights of the show include two superb drawings from Dresden in which dazzlingly rapid strokes of the pen capture a sense of sudden manifestation and demonstrate the artist's continued exploration of the experience of revelation. This exhibition is the first to bring all of this material together and will therefore provide a fresh examination of Rembrandt's evolving approach to the representation of the divine across different media and of his engagement with artistic, theological, and philosophical questions about sight and perception.

And like any Summer Camp, you will emerge as a somewhat unrecognizable but more experienced form of yourself. Our generative format will allow you to develop your voices, write voluminously, journal (yes, you may write home!), and scare yourself. This class will be playful, harness the fun of summer sun and Sundays, but it will also be hard work! We will study non-traditional forms, collaboration, ekphrastic writing, elegy, using the self, hybrid, anti-poems, found, nature, formal, conceptual, dreams, the internet, and more. Class time will be spent on active writing, workshops, experiencing, listening to and responding to visitors, a little editing, and you will also practice performing your new work! We will be visited by two amazing working poets (TBA), read poetry, words, and letters from the past and present. And since its SUMMER, we will take a writing excursion to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as to the sidewalks, parks, and even the New York City Poetry Festival for inspiration and writing. We will feel the summer heat, eat pizza, eat ice cream and write hungrily, constantly, responsibly, and recklessly. The summer will end with a capstone project: a chapbook manuscript! If youre doing it right, youll cry tears of joy and tears of wild emotion: either way changed and renewed! Every week we will read cutting-edge, crazy, and curious poetry, words, and letters from the past, present, and the future like John Keats, Vincent Van Gogh, Gaston Bachelard, John Wieners, Mary Ruefle, Sommer Browning, Chris Kraus, Anne Boyer, and more.

Through August 21, 2017 - Novi Beograd

Curated by Swiss Institute with Julie Boukobza, with Ana Anakijev and Miloš Zec as assistant curators. Produced by Balkan Projects. Artists: Danai Anesiadou, Darja Bajagi?, Dora Budor, Ulises Carrión, Heman Chong, Brice Dellsperger, Aleksandra Domanovi?, Mathis Gasser, Daiga Grantina, Siniša Ili?, Alex Israel, Bertrand Lavier, William Leavitt, Christian Marclay, Rodrigo Matheus, Benjamin Ramírez Pérez, Carissa Rodriguez, Bojan Šar?evi?, Amie Siegel, Tobias Spichtig, Raša Todosijevi? Inhabiting the rooms of the Museum of Contemporary Art - Belgrade's Milica Zori? and Rodoljub ?olakovi? Gallery-Legacy, FADE IN 2: EXT. MODERNIST HOME – NIGHT investigates the role that art plays in narrative film and television. The exhibition acts as a sequel to FADE IN: INT. ART GALLERY – DAY, which was on view at Swiss Institute / Contemporary Art, New York in March 2016. This new iteration allows participating artists to further reclaim the manner in which art is represented on screen, whether as props, set dressings, plot devices, or character cues. The nature of the exhibition is such that sculptures, paintings, performances and installations transition from prop to image to art object, staging an enquiry into whether these fictional depictions in mass media ultimately have greater influence in defining a collective understanding of art than art itself does. Certain preoccupations with artworks are established early on in cinematic history: the preciousness of art objects anchors their roles as plot drivers, and anxieties intensify regarding the vitality of artworks and their perceived abilities to wield power over viewers or to capture spirits. Across genres, the character of the artist is habitually portrayed as a volatile, mercurial figure with license to subvert societal norms, who is thereby ridiculed, feared and revered. From many such narratives, FADE IN 2 draws out the art objects, granting them the status only previously achieved on-screen, whilst pointing to moments in which one form of media wrangles with the power of another.

Noah's Beasts: Sculpted Animals from Ancient Mesopotamia - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

Animal representations in the sculptural arts of the ancient Near East are remarkable for their evocative expressive power. Beautiful and durable, these artworks have withstood the millennia and preserve the record of humanity, its concerns and beliefs, for all subsequent generations. Often combining great attention to naturalistic detail with elements of stylization, the ancient sculptures—made in both stone and metal, some even with silver and inlays of shell and lapis lazuli—have a strong visual appeal; yet they also lend insight on the sacred, profane, sacrificial, and practical realities of the early Sumerian agrarian society, which is popularly known as the cradle of Western civilization. This exhibition presents Mesopotamian sculptural works from ca. 3300–2250 B.C., bringing together for the first time pieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Yale University Babylonian Collection, the Kimbell Art Museum, and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Cylinder seals relating to each of the sculptures are also presented, including a remarkable seal from the Morgan's collection showing animals acting as human. Through a focused consideration of these Near Eastern artworks, the rare objects emphasize the importance of the elements of the natural world that the ancients experienced and, by extension, the interdependence of the natural and the spiritual world. Inspiring the exhibition, the Morgan's famous 1646 B.C. clay tablet will also be on view; it is inscribed with the "The Deluge Story"—an early version of the familiar tale of Noah.

GroßEr Lauscher - Knockdown Center
Through August 27, 2017 - New York

großer Lauscher ("big Eavesdropper" in German) is a spatial sound installation created by interdisciplinary artist Alyssa Miserendino. The piece was recorded in the main radar dome at the Field Station Berlin, a listening station built during the Cold War by the US National Security Agency (NSA). Exhibited in the darkness, the piece is comprised of five narrators from five different continents reciting the story of Echo from Ovid's Metamorphoses, while the protracted echos created by the architecture allow visitors to visualize the space of the Field Station. This project is made possible by an Ella Fountain Pratt Emerging Artists Grant from the Durham Arts Council with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources + a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant. This project is sponsored by Arup and Genelec. About ArupIn order to curate an experience driven solely by sound, the unique acoustic signature of the main radar dome at the Field Station Berlin called for a playful interpretation and immersive implementation through sound design. The performance was recorded in a multichannel audio format in Berlin by Alyssa Miserendino with technical support from Arup. In close collaboration with the artist the audio was then processed, spatialized, and rendered into the final piece by Arup acoustic designers using the proprietary 3D audio technology of the Arup SoundLab®. Arup concurrently designed a spatial sound system to render the piece and provided acoustic consulting expertise for the exhibition space, optimizing the patron aural experience,About Genelec Genelec is a sponsor of the project großer Lauscher, providing studio monitors and mounting accessories for the installation at Knockdown Center. Genelec's design philosophy is based on sustainable development and environmental values, using industrial design to serve their products' acoustical performance. Genelec aims to deliver performance-driven, tonally neutral speaker and subwoofer systems for audio professionals and enthusiasts. Alyssa Miserendino is an interdisciplinary artist & educator, working in photography, sculpture, video, sound, performance & installation. She creates artwork driven by her interest in paradox & connection. Since her undergraduate fellowship award, from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, her work has since been supported by organizations such as the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation and ARUP. She completed her Masters in Fine Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is currently teaching at The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University.

Collecting the Arts of Mexico - The Met
Through September 04, 2017 - New York

In 1911, Emily Johnston de Forest gave her collection of pottery from Mexico to The Met. Calling it "Mexican maiolica," she highlighted its importance as a North American artistic achievement.

Today, more than a century later, their vision resonates as the Museum commits to collecting and exhibiting not just the arts of Mexico, but all of Latin America. This exhibition highlights the early contributions of the De Forests and others, and presents recent additions to the collection for the first time.

It’s A New Season of Excavation at Liberty Science Center as Jack Horner’s Dino Dig, Inspired by the Legendary Paleontologist, Opens July 1 For dinosaur hunters around the world, the start of summer means it’s time to get out of the lab and back into the field to make new discoveries. Liberty Science Center guests can begin their own new season of fieldwork as they excavate full-sized Cretaceous-era fossil replicas from 35 tons of sand at Jack Horner’s Dino Dig starting July 1. For the second year in a row, Liberty Science Center gives guests the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of legendary paleontologist Jack Horner, the inspiration of the Michael Crichton novel and Steven Spielberg film, “Jurassic Park.” Mr. Horner is lending his name to the activity to help inspire the next generation of scientists. “Every kid has imagined how cool it would be to dig for dinosaur bones,” said Paul Hoffman, LSC President and CEO. “Liberty Science Center is all about bringing science to life in fun, interactive, and compelling ways. With Jack Horner’s expertise to guide us, our ‘Dino Dig’ guests will see first-hand how exciting paleontology can be.” The exhibit has been updated since Mr. Horner’s visit to LSC last year, reflecting more of his excavation experiences and focus on specific discoveries. Many of the over 50 bones, including a 72-inch long Triceratops skull, will protrude from the ground as if “weathering out,” and new species have been added. The full assemblage now includes T. rex, Pachycephalosaurus, Triceratops, and Mr. Horner’s discovery, Maiasaura, which cared for nests of their young in huge gatherings as their birddescendants, including emperor penguins, still do today. Weather permitting, Jack Horner’s Dino Dig is open daily July 1 through September 4, 2017 and is included with general admission. Tickets to Liberty Science Center start at $17.75 and are available online at LSC.org. Note: Kids wearing dinosaur-themed clothing can save $5 on child admission tickets while the exhibit is here!

It's Unreal! - Arts Brookfield
Through September 08, 2017 - Houston

Houston artist Adela Andea is known for transforming indoor spaces. Her installations create sensory experiences for her viewers. In Arts Brookfield's latest exhibition, It's Unreal!, Andea uses LED lights and various recycled plastic materials to provoke a dialogue about the interaction between people and new technologies. Of her "conversations in light," Andea says, "My work relies on human-made materials to create artificial environments that suggest 'beauty' assigned to the natural landscapes or environments. My installations insist on the visual transformation of inorganic into organic matter, and the blending of the organic with geometric." Curated by Sally Reynolds. ABOUT ADELA ANDEA Born in Romania in 1976, Adela Andea came to the United States in 1999. Her work was included in several exhibitions in California, Pennsylvania, New York and Texas. She graduated Valedictorian and Summa Cum Laude from the Painting program at the University of Houston.

The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals - Frick Collection
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

The Frick Collection recently announced the largest acquisition in its history — a promised gift of approximately 450 portrait medals from the incomparable collection of Stephen K. and Janie Woo Scher. Representing the development of the art of the portrait medal from its inception in fifteenth-century Italy to the nineteenth century, the Scher collection is arguably the world's most comprehensive and significant collection of portrait medals. Comments Director Ian Wardropper, "Henry Clay Frick had an abiding interest in portraiture as expressed in the paintings, sculpture, enamels, and works on paper he acquired. The Scher medals will coalesce beautifully with these holdings, being understood in our galleries within the broader contexts of European art and culture. At the same time, the intimate scale of the institution will offer a superb platform for the medals to be appreciated as an independent art form, one long overdue for fresh attention and public appreciation." To celebrate the promised gift, The Frick Collection will mount an exhibition this spring entitled The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals. The exhibition will explore the flourishing of the medallic arts in major European centers of artistic production and will feature superlative examples by masters of the art such as Pisanello (Italy), Dupré (France), and Reinhart (Germany). Taking and fresh approach to the study of medals, which have often been viewed in the past as specialist objects closer to the field of numismatics, this exhibition will examine medals within the larger context of art, honoring them as a triumph of sculptural production on a small scale. Visitors to the show will encounter a number of renowned sculptors who were also masters of the medal. The Pursuit of Immortality: Masterpieces from the Scher Collection of Portrait Medals is organized by Aimee Ng, Associate Curator at the Frick, and Stephen K. Scher, an esteemed art historian as well as a collector. Accompanying the exhibition is a richly illustrated exhibition catalogue including an essay by Aimee Ng. (In the spring of 2018, a catalogue of the entire Scher Collection will be published, featuring essays by leading medals scholars and illustrated entries about each of the almost one thousand medals in the collection.)

Anish Kapoor: Descension - Brooklyn Bridge Park - Pier 1 Entrance
Through September 10, 2017 - DUMBO

World-renowned artist Anish Kapoor’s Descension comes to New York for the first time as part of Public Art Fund’s 40th Anniversary season. Kapoor, known for sculptures like Cloud Gate in Chicago’s Millennium Park, previously installed Descension at India’s Kochi-Muziris biennale in 2014 and at Versailles in 2015. Descension creates a negative space alive with energy, continuously in process, that invites audiences to peer into its depths. Through the piece, Kapoor blurs the boundaries between nature, landscape, and art, allowing us to perceive space differently.

This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) occupies a lofty place in American cultural history. He spent two years in a cabin by Walden Pond and a single night in jail, and out of those experiences grew two of this country's most influential works: his book Walden and the essay known as "Civil Disobedience." But his lifelong journal—more voluminous by far than his published writings—reveals a fuller, more intimate picture of a man of wide-ranging interests and a profound commitment to living responsibly and passionately. This Ever New Self: Thoreau and His Journal brings together nearly one hundred items in the most comprehensive exhibition ever devoted to the author. Marking the 200th anniversary of Thoreau's birth and organized in partnership with the Concord Museum in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts, the show centers on the journal he kept throughout his life and its importance in understanding the essential Thoreau. More than twenty of Thoreau's journal notebooks are shown along with letters and manuscripts, books from his library, pressed plants from his herbarium, and important personal artifacts. Also featured are the only two photographs for which he sat during his lifetime, shown together for the first time.

Henry James and American Painting - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 10, 2017 - New York

The analogy between the art of the painter and the art of the novelist is, so far as I am able to see, complete. Their inspiration is the same, their process (allowing for the different quality of the vehicle), is the same, their success is the same. They may learn from each other, they may explain and sustain each other. Their cause is the same, and the honour of one is the honour of another. Henry James and American Painting is the first exhibition to explore the author's deep and lasting interest in the visual arts and their profound impact on the literature he produced. Offering a fresh perspective on the master novelist, the show reveals the importance of James's friendships with American artists such as John La Farge (1835–1910), John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), and James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903). While the author decided early on that the pictorial arts were not to be the arena in which he would work, the painterly quality of his writing has enthralled readers for over a century. Co-curated by acclaimed novelist Colm Tóibín and Declan Kiely, head of the Morgan's Department of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, the exhibition includes a rich and eclectic selection of more than fifty paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, photographs, manuscripts, letters, and printed books from two dozen museums and private collections in the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland. Together they weave an evocative story of fascinating artistic intersections.

Through September 14, 2017 - Upper West Side

Narrated by two-time Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor, Humpback Whales is an extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of nature's most awe-inspiring marine mammals. Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii, and the remote islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play, and care for their young. Found in every ocean on Earth—and captured for the first time with IMAX® 3D cameras in this film—humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the species and find out: why humpbacks seem to be the most acrobatic of all whales, how they produce their haunting songs, and what drives these intelligent, 55-foot-long, 50-ton animals to migrate up to 10,000 miles round trip every year.

Radical Bodies - The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts
Through September 16, 2017 - New York

Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, and Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 - 1972 n August 1960, the choreographer Anna Halprin, the inventor of task-based improvisation, taught an experimental workshop on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, north of San Francisco, attended by Simone Forti and Yvonne Rainer. Within two years, Forti's conceptually forceful dance constructions premiered in Yoko Ono's loft in New York and Rainer co-founded the groundbreaking Judson Dance Theater. Radical Bodies examines the artistic relationships between Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, shedding light on each artist's contribution to history. Dance was a conceptual engine of the art world in the 1960s. Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, all Californians with Jewish roots, opened the way to a radicalized, communitarian vision for performance that continues to influence choreographers and visual artists around the world to the present day. Curated by Ninotchka D. Bennahum (Professor of Theater and Dance, UCSB), Wendy Perron (Former Editor in Chief, Dance Magazine; Adjunct Professor, NYU Tisch School of the Arts) and Bruce Robertson (Professor of Art History and Director of the AD&A Museum, UCSB), Radical Bodies: Anna Halprin, Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer in California and New York, 1955 – 1972 consists of photographs, rare films, and original choreographic scores and drawings by Halprin, Forti, and Rainer, as well as work inspired by them by such artists as Imogen Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg, and George Brecht. It is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, co-published by University of California Press, with essays by Bennahum, Perron, and Robertson, as well as essays by John Rockwell (former dance critic of The New York Times), and Halprin collaborator Morton Subotnick. Also in the catalogue are never-before-published letters by Forti to Halprin in the early '60s. Radical Bodies is organized by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara with generous support provided by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc., the Ceil and Michael Pulitzer Foundation, the Metabolic Studio, and Jody and John Arnhold, Victoria Hendler, and Eva and Yoel Haller. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts gratefully acknowledges the leadership support of Dorothy and Lewis. B. Cullman. Additional support for exhibitions has been provided by Judy R. and Alfred A. Rosenberg and the Miriam and Harold Steinberg Foundation.

South Street Seaport Museum announces Free Fridays Program - South Street Seaport Museum
Through September 22, 2017 - New York

South Street Seaport Museum announces Free Fridays Program alternate Fridays through September 22, 2017 The South Street Seaport Museum announces its summer program of Free Fridays! Every other Friday between 3-7pm, the Seaport Museum offers free admission to its exhibitions, historic ship tours, educational and programmatic activities, artisan demonstrations at Bowne Printers, and more!    The Free Fridays program will feature special activities on selected topics; the upcoming Free Fridays program on June 16 will feature the Seaport Museum's flagship Wavertree and will offer visitors a special opportunity to step aboard, grab a halyard and raise one of the ship's sails!   The 2017 Free Fridays program is presented by The Howard Hughes Corporation andis supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.    On June 30th, the Free Fridays program will feature a special curatorial and collections walkthrough of the new exhibition, Millions: Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners, 1900-1914, one of the first exhibitions to examine, side-by-side, the dichotomy between First-Class and Third-Class passengers aboard ocean liners in the early 20th century.    Ships like Titanic, Olympic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, and Imperatordominated transatlantic travel. On each voyage, they transported thousands of people, First-Class passengers sailed across the Atlantic in the lap of luxury while Third-Class passengers made the voyage in the stuffy lower decks.   From 1900 to 1914, nearly 13 million immigrants traveling in Third Class arrived in the United States. During this same period, America's wealthiest citizens, totaling no more than a hundred thousand passengers each year, traveled to Europe in First Class, spending over $11.5 billion (2017) on luxury vacations. Even though First Class and Third Class sailed on the same ships, their journeys were worlds apart.   This exhibition will feature both original and reproduced artifacts from the South Street Seaport Museum's permanent collection including ocean liner memorabilia and ephemera, ceramics, and luggage trunks from both immigrants and First Class passengers. The exhibition will highlight a few ship models of New York Harbor working vessels that played critical roles in immigration, including a model of the Museum's lightship Ambrose (LV-87).    Ambrose, a floating lighthouse, stood watch at the front door to New York Harbor during the greatest period of immigration in US history. Her official duty was to mark the entrance to the Ambrose Channel, a deep channel dredged between 1900 and 1907 to allow larger ocean liners, the largest of which had doubled in size in those same years, safe access into the harbor. But Ambrosehad another vital role; her light was the first thing an immigrant would see as they entered New York Harbor, long before the buildings and piers on the waterfront, long before the Manhattan skyline, and long before the lighted torch of the Statue of Liberty.    Evoking the spirit of First-Class grandeur, a piece of wood paneling that once adorned the interior of the Smoking Room of the RMS Mauretania will be recreated by master woodcarver Deborah Mills throughout the run of the show. This work-in-progress will be on view in the exhibition space during regular hours Thursday through Sunday. Each Wednesday visitors can visit the Museum's Maritime Craft Center at 209 Water Street and watch as the artist brings the piece closer to the original.   The exhibition will familiarize viewers with passenger life aboard ocean liners, the defining differences between travel for wealthy Americans in First Class and future Americans immigrating to the United States in Third Class, and the continuing importance that immigration plays in American history.   The exhibition is curated by William Roka, Historian, and Michelle Kennedy, Collections and Curatorial Assistant, at the Seaport Museum. Exhibition design and art direction by Rob Wilson and Christine Picone of Bowne Printers, the Museum's historic letterpress shop.    This exhibition is made possible by generous support from Theodore W. Scull and is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.   ABOUT SOUTH STREET SEAPORT MUSEUM The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport district in New York City, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Designated by Congress as America's National Maritime Museum, the Museum houses exhibition galleries and education spaces, working nineteenth century print shops, and an active fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of "Where New York Begins."

A Supple Perimeter - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 -

Formal leisure Skirt Boutique Tory Burch wSqAtUF4x

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Arts Center at Governors Island hosts LMCC's summer exhibition, A Supple Perimeter, by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Free and open to the public, the exhibition will change over time, inviting audiences to both experience the evolution of the space in person and encounter a new installation upon multiple visits. A Supple Perimeter, Artist Statement Rasheed's research-based practice, which spans installation, photography, performance, publications, and printmaking, engages with figurative and literal language to interrogate how we read, write, consume, and distribute histories of Black folks. Invested in the wide permutations of Blackness, A Supple Perimeter explores the capacities of blackness and the quiet, blackness and the reticent, blackness and the private: an expansive blackness that allows for a Black subject with interiority and a strategic engagement with public(s). In A Supple Perimeter, Rasheed begins with her research into ecology, entropy and black traditions of experimental writing to construct an immersive ecosystem of existing and self-authored texts, unfinished videos, projections, objects and excerpts of sound experiments that comment on selective legibility; the tension between public and private selves; black traditions of covert literacies and language systems; technologies of counter-surveillance; as well as systems of self-publishing. Delicately moving between opacity and transparency, interiority and public pronouncements, in A Supple Perimeter bodies of work are burrowed into the walls, others erupt from the corners, while some only become visible through specific physical engagements. Faced with the assertion of an ahistorical and stable Black subject who is both publicly available and fungible, Rasheed invites the audience to engage with an unstable installation space that mirrors of the agility of Blackness, her blackness, in an installation that will shift in form and content over the course of the installation period using a set of rules derived from constrained writing techniques and performance scores. Each iterative change to the installation will be accompanied by a piece of writing and a map of changes published at www.kameelahr.com/a-supple-perimeter, while weekly images will be posted to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags #asuppleperimeter, #kameelahjananrasheed, #lmcc and #r2r. Organized by Melissa Levin A Supple Perimeter is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the summer, May 27–Sep 24 from 12pm-5pm. A Supple Perimeter is open every day during River To River 2017, Jun 15 – Jun 25 from 12pm-5pm. Reception: Saturday, June 24, 3-5pm

If/Then & Questions - Lower Manhattan Cultural Council
Through September 24, 2017 - New York

In addition to a solo exhibition in the gallery at The Arts Center at Governors Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council hosts a public art installation by artist, educator, and writer Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Rasheed's If/Then (2014-present) and Questions (2017) will be installed on the façade of the historic Fort Jay Theater on Governors Island using the existing poster cases and original marquee board. Taking advantage of a space that would have typically advertised live entertainment and movies from 1939-1996 to U.S. military and their families living and working on Governors Island, Rasheed's new project Questions and the ongoing If/Then both aim to create a different kind of moment of pause for a viewer: to consider an existential question or to process the association of poignant, two-word alliterative phrases, all composed by the artist. On a biweekly cycle, the posters in the cases and the text in the marquee board will be changed by Rasheed. The marquee board will feature a new question concerning a contemporary context. The posters will feature alliterative word pairings, each of which contain a multiplicity of meanings. Each change will be documented via Instagram. The final images of the marquee board will be compiled into a small zine made available at the close of the show.The installation's first question is, "Are we there yet?" Organized by Melissa Levin

This exhibition celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of the Neue Galerie's founding. Highlights from the museum's extensive collection of Austrian art from the period 1890 to 1940 are on view, including major paintings and drawings by Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin, and Egon Schiele. Icons of modern design are also featured, such as furniture designed by architects Otto Wagner and Adolf Loos, as well as objects made by the Wiener Werkstätte after designs by Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche. The center gallery features an extraordinary selection of Klimt's sensuous depictions of women, including both portraits of Adele Bloch-Bauer (1907 and 1912), as well as paintings of Gertha Loew (1902), Elisabeth Lederer (1914-15), and Ria Munk (1917). This special presentation includes four major loans that have been extended following the recent exhibition, "Klimt and the Women of Vienna's Golden Age, 1900-1918." The Neue Galerie appreciates the generosity of the private lenders who made this presentation possible, which offers a rare opportunity to see some of Klimt's most important and beloved canvases. Special thanks are due to Neue Galerie President and co-founder Ronald S. Lauder. A fully-illustrated catalogue, published by Prestel Verlag, accompanies the exhibition, featuring a major overview of of the Neue Galerie's holdings of fine art and design from Germany and Austria. This exhibition is made possible in part by the Neue Galerie President's Circle.
