    Small Beast at The Owl w/ Mark Eitzel and Cold Casper – Thursday 03/31

    $10 Donation Suggested

    small beast paul wallfisch

    Born in L.A. and raised in Harlem, 18 year-old Cold Casper makes his live debut, celebrating the release of his first album “Into the Evening Again.” In his previous incarnation as Solemn Diver, he contributed guitar loops and rhymes to Tritone, Taharqa, Thot Hunter as well as opening shows for Lydia Lunch and John Parish. His guitar playing evokes John Fahey and Tallest Man On Earth, and he says he’s influenced by Hank Williams and Bobby Charles, but also cites Deathgrips, Swans and Ratking as his favorite bands. Cold Casper says he wants his audience to “shut up and cry.”

     One of the most celebrated and idiosyncratic American songwriters of his generation, Mark Eitzel is best known as the leader of the iconic indie rock band American Music Club, who spun beautifully chaotic webs of guitar from Eitzel’s gloomy but compassionate studies of lost souls and alcohol; since striking out on his own, Eitzel has embraced a number of different musical approaches, while his witty but downcast lyrical style has remained constant. 

    “…the music is generally superb and the show is guided by Wallfisch, who skillfully lends humor, piano chops and a set of his own husky and affecting songs to the evening. “ ~ The New Yorker

    ===> FLASH update =====> Sally Norvell And Kid Congo Powers will be dropping by for a couple songs with Paul & Mark. With her character Nurse Bibs, Sally Norvell provided comic relief in Wim Wenders' masterpiece Paris Texas. She later formed the band Congo Norvell with Kid Congo Powers (Cramps, Gun Club, Nick Cave) and the partnership grew into a popular 90s cult band recording and touring all over the USA and EU. Sally is currently working on a historical romance novel, "Poe, a Metaphysical Love Story", a dark tale about the life of Edgar Allan Poe.

    small beast paul wallfisch

    The last time Little Annie, tortured soul singer, painter, actor and author, stepped in front of a New York audience was at Town Hall in a tribute to Edith Piaf. “The most compelling of several oddballs was Little Annie.” wrote Stephen Holden in The New York Times. Debuting songs from her upcoming Tin Angel Records release “Trace” this will be a rare New York appearance for the dub diva who now makes her home in Miami.

    French singer, and general malcontent F. Blasco—aka Blasco Ballroom—arrived in Virginia at the end of the last century and together with Sparklehorse guitarist and trumpeter Paul “Watty” Watson made one of the all-time best records hardly anybody ever heard: “Film.” He recently told Watty he had some new songs and for the first time in years, the duo, with PW at the piano will be performing in New York.

    And The Wiremen is masterminded by sultry southern guitarist and singer Lynn Wright. Taking advantage of Watty’s foray to NYC, ATW will also be joined by multi-instrumentalist Jon Petrow and violinist Simon Goff. On their last European tour the Berliner Zeitung said they’d “provide the perfect soundtrack for a Quentin Tarantino movie.” Lynn worked with Alexander Hacke on the score for Fatih Akin’s “The Cut.” and in a previous life as James Hall’s guitarist.

    small beast paul wallfisch

    Thomas Truax, who Time Out calls “The king of home-made instruments” is the world’s only Hornicator, Backbeater and Stringaling Virtuoso. Along with his drummer Mother Superior, he has spent the last 15 years traveling the world performing with his evolving “band” of bizarre self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments. His numerous collaborators have included Jarvis Cocker, Amanda Palmer, Richard Hawley and Duke Special. Currently based in London and Krefeld, Germany, this show will be Truax’s first NY show in over five years.

    Straddling the worlds of music, art, performance and theater, Joseph Keckler has garnered acclaim for his rich, versatile 3+ octave voice and sharp wit. In 2013 Dixon Place commissioned his most recent performance piece, I am an Opera. He was recently featured on BBC America’s The Nerdist and WNYC Soundcheck, and has appeared at venues including South by Southwest, Joe’s Pub, New Museum of Contemporary Art, Merkin Hall, and BAM. He has received residencies from MacDowell and Yaddo, as well as a Franklin Furnace Grant and a Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Work from New York Foundation for the Arts. The Village Voice named him “Best Downtown Performance Artist, 2013.” He is currently playing Chaliapin in Dave Malloy’s Preludes, running at Lincoln Center.

    $10 Donation Suggested

    small beast paul wallfisch

    Renowned animal portraitist Phil Puleo, is the drummer and hammer-dulcimer player in Swans. Cop Shoot Cop keyboardist, soundtrack composer and JG Thirlwell collaborator and mad scientist Jim Coleman will play the hurdy-gurdy, melodica and a pile of analog modules never before wired up in public. Paul Wallfisch will step away from the piano to test what happens when he plugs in a bass.

    Birdthrower has crawled on hands and knees up Broadway from the Battery to Washington Heights. When he’s not crawling, he writes timelessly simple songs of love lost and found on his Teeny Genie and an acoustic guitar. Together, these four are Gaudete, named after Ted Hughes’ book-length poem he intended as a film. Gaudete just recorded 3 tracks for Martin Bisi’s 35th anniversary celebration. This is their world premiere performance.

    Valerie Kuehne is a cross-pollinated work of chaos. Fusing together music, performance art, narrative, and experimental curation, she has been told that, "if this music thing doesn’t work out, she’d probably make an awesome cult leader." (Boston Public Space).‘ Cello virtuoso, storyteller, performance artist, singer, curator at Panoply Performance Laboratory and all-around iconoclastic firecracker Valerie Kuehne is a mainstay of new music in New York. Ms. Kuehne’s work operates under principles of surprise, and investigates obsession, comedy, decay, forensic pathology, sex, hypnogogia, viscera, spirituality & death. She is one half of the duo Naked Roots Conducive, one third of the trio Prehistoric Horse, and a histrionic version of herself. Ms. Kuehne operates a blog of music reviews and performance philosophy (www.thesupercoda.com) and frequently releases albums that blur the line between comfort and discomfort (www.dreamzoo.bandcamp.com). http://www.valeriekuehne.com

    Molecular, a full-bore improvisational, not-too-many-tricks, just-get-that-thing-and-kick-it, line-up-shifting (hyphen-fetishist) outfit in nice clothing. This show's line-up: Kizys-- Bass/Irregular Bass Simonelli—borrowed from Enablers)—Gesturing Monkey/Words Sparks--Buchla, The Wallfisch-- Piano/Polyester Wright-- Guitar/Ascot (and/or hat) A recording of their set will be available for purchase after the show.

    Joanna Wallfisch is Paul’s second cousin thrice removed. Recently arrived on our shores from London, she has a clarity of voice matched with crystalline song craft reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Bill Evans. Downbeat gave her debut album 4.5 out of 5 stars and the New York Times called her “sensitive and deep.” And for something completely different… Barbez guitarist Dan Kaufman and drummer John Bollinger make up the scintillatingly named and spectacular sounding duo John and Dan.

    small beast paul wallfisch

    Lenny Kaye, best known as Patti Smith’s guitar player of 40 years standing, has been playing G L O R I A since the 60’s. His Small Beast show at The Delancey brought an iconic guitar tone and glowingly relaxed stage presence to his encyclopedic song catalog and touching originals.

    Christian Gibbs - He Arrived By Helicopter! ….another project by Christian Gibbs, leaning more towards the improvisational sound textures of guitar processing and loops. Sometimes solo with a few amps or sometimes with a band. More instrumental than voice based. That said, there might be some occasional guttural noises emanating deep from the thorax in the form of something resembling language as we know it. http://www.cgibbsreview.com

    Singer/ Multi-Instrumentalist Sharief Hobley has worked with John Legend, Rufus Wainwright, Jaguar Wright, Chocolate Genius and many others. Brahim Fribgane - Born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco, Brahim brings to his music the rich and varied musical styles he grew up with - North African, Gnawa, Berber, Arabic, Andulusian music, and any other styles he has encountered throughout his prolific career in New York. His oud style ranges from the clear, "singable" melodies of folkloric Berber songs to beautifully complex and soulful Arabic music, to the fusion of jazz, samba, reggae or Indian music. When Brahim picks up any of the numerous percussion instruments he favors, it's tough to sit still. And his singing voice is straightforward and honest... Brahim sings his songs, and you get the message. A remarkably creative and diverse musician, Brahim's music reflects his openness and appreciation of all cultures and their music. Amino Belyamani - Born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco, Amino has been based in New York since 2009 as a full-time musician. Amino’s music reflects the diversity of his influences - complex african rhythms, arabic melodies, western classical music, jazz and electro-acoustic music. One can witness this richness in the various ensembles Amino leads and co-leads in New York - the critically acclaimed Dawn of Midi, the microtonal and hypnotic SSAHHA, the traditional Ewe ensemble from Ghana - Bedstuy Ewe, and the traditional gnawa music ensemble - Innov Gnawa. Amino has performed with world renowned artists such as Albert "Tootie" heath, Charlie Haden, Alfred Ladzekpo, Houman Pourmehdi, Hamid el Kasri, Hassan Hakmoun, Dimi Mint Abba, and many others.

But I could hear the rats and cats and squirrels and such scurrying around on it all night long. It was always in flux, sometimes it was completely gone with just a few scattered scraps, and sometimes it was huge and shocking to see. Trash Mountain was a feeding and breeding ground for all sorts of animal city life.Trash Mountain 4-23-16 I have no idea what happened to end Trash Mountain. Trash Mountain reminds me to check my privilege. And I want Trash Mountain to live on."

    Micros.circa.1984

    One of New York’s most elusive institutions, the Microscopic Septet has been creating ‘surrealistic swing’ for the last three and a half decades. In a rare public performance of the music they are about to go into the studio to record two days later, the Micros perform all the music from their forthcoming Cuneiform CD, I’ve Been Up So Long It Looks Like Down To Me: The Micros Play The Blues, and at the same time, celebrate co-leader pianist Joel Forrester’s 70th birthday. Expect special guests and special music, and, as always, a good time to be had by all.

    “Ever since its cutting-edge debut, 1983’s Take The Z Train, there has been an air of mystery and mirth surrounding The Microscopic Septet. . .There’s a whole lot of quirk here, but it’s always on the joyous side. . . An eclectic bunch of kindred spirits still doing it against all odds.”

    Bring a bale of hay and a bucket of water onto the stage for the piano to eat and drink. The performer may then feed the piano or leave it to eat by itself (LaMonte Young - 1960) At times it seems like this thing could breathe. But then its discrete spaces chop it into notes. It’s an ongoing drama. Sometimes, though, it all comes out just sounding like nice piano playing. But not always.unnamed-2

    Tredici Baci / Evan Allen Trio Saturday July 9

    8pm doors $10 suggested donation

    Tredici Bacci, a 14-piece group of musicians all under the age of 30, sounds, to the thoughtful listener, like a celebration. A celebration not of a genre of music, but rather of an era, and, more specifically, the aspects of an era which perhaps have been glossed over by conventional history. Tredici Bacci is celebrating the strange, somewhat seedy, schmaltzy and smooth aspects of 1960s-70s popular culture - our songs are cries in honor to the many artifacts which seem now to be the strange leavings of a recently liberated nation - nay, the sensuous oddities leftover from an entirely different world! Tredicci Bacci is a living homage to french pornography, to italian slasher films, to pop psychedelia! A musical shrine dedicated to bright colors! flugelhorns! sing-song and sexy dialogue! To the Mondo! Absurd romanticism! The sumptuous beauty of strings, to never-ending sambas, to the breakdown of western civilization! Up with Ennio! Up with Bacharach! Let our cries be heard and let no man nor woman forget that they were meant to be sexy! To be sultry! To cry tears of lost love over a backdrop of paisley and powder blue! Huzzah! tredici pic

    Collaborators since 2008, Kris Davis and Ingrid Laubrock perform and work together in a variety of projects, most notably Paradoxical Frog with Tyshawn Sorey, Laubrock’s quintet Anti-house and Davis’ Capricorn Climber. Davis was name one of ’25 for the Future’ in the current issue of Downbeat magazine and Nate Chinen from the NY times says: "Over the last couple of years in New York one method for deciding where to hear jazz on a given night has been to track down the pianist Kris Davis.” Ben Ratliff of the NY times has this to say about Laubrock: “Some jazz musicians find their style and move in lock, stock and barrel, making little refinements over the years but basically keeping their place. Ingrid Laubrock sounds happily unsettled. On tenor and soprano, she’s omnivorous and pointed, slouching and precise, humorous and austere (…) Ms. Laubrock encouraged constant sense of renewal.”unnamed-1

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    tanya trio

    The By & By is a new Boston band taking a fresh approach to American Roots music. Their electrifying stage performances summon the raw energy of Gospel and Blues music, the plaintive cry of Country music, and infuse it with a modern edge. Together, Leah Hennessy, Jacob Means, and Brad Barrett explore their relationship to traditional music through their experience as improvisers, drawing material from Methodist hymnals, the Carter Family, Muddy Waters and Blind Willie Johnson. Hennessy’s bluesy and jazz-inflected vocals anchor the creative and intricate counterpoint between Means's mandolin and Barrett's bass. The musical prowess of all three New England Conservatory graduates is apparent as they dance between time signatures while maintaining their allegiance to the groove. The resulting music is inventive and yet familiar, forging new territory for the American string band sound. Your ears will be reminded of similar projects like Crooked Still and Lake Street Dive.

    Steven Bernstein's Millenial Territory Orchestra Thursday August 11

    7:30 Doors $12adv/$15 at door

    Formed in the winter of 1999 for Tonic's legendary midnight shows, MTO has preached their music from the stages of Bonaroo all the way to Finland and now in Brooklyn. NPR's All Things Considered described Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra like this: 'MTO slides between the old and the new, taking musical cues from talented but little-known jazz bands from the 1920s and '30s that worked the juke joints and ballrooms of the Cotton Belt and the Midwest.' Indeed Bernstein and company embrace vintage sounds and tweak them through their very own post-modern filter. Classics like 'Viper Song' and 'Its Tight Jim' are reinvented to speak in the 21st century, without sacrificing any big band swing authenticity. More contemporary fair like The Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love' are treated as if they straight from Count Basie's repertoire. With Doug Wieselman, Peter Apfelbaum, Erik Lawrence, Charlie Burnham, Brian Drye, Ben Allison, Alison Miller and Steve Cardenas.

    John Ellis

    Cassidy Andrews picked up a guitar when a woman broke her heart for the first time at age 13. After a few years, she went on connect with audiences about all things melancholy, attempting to compensate for sad songs with jokes and charm. After playing venues varying from zoos to colleges, bars to music halls, cafes to living rooms, there's a comfort and love for creating music you feel from her performance. Besides songwriting, Andrews has perfected the art of juggling her guitar, coffee thermos, and MetroCard while SnapChatting blonde jokes aimed at herself. // The gifted, versatile saxophonist/clarinetist/composer John Ellis occupies an imaginary (and extremely imaginative) space directly between the celebratory, welcoming spirit of New Orleans and the edgy, frantic streets of New York City. The North Carolina native has established himself as one of New York’s premier tenor saxophonists, working with artists as diverse as John Patitucci, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charlie Hunter, and Sting. Ellis has released nine albums as a leader, while his discography lists more than 100 album credits as a sideman.

Since taking up the instrument at six, he has received numerous accolades as a classical musician and performed throughout the United States and Southern Europe. The son of an actor, his playing is characterized by a heightened sense of drama and narrative, and he communicates through his guitar with a striking rhetorical sincerity.

    GAVAGAI 9/8

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    Screen Shot 2016-08-13 at 7.55.08 PMGAVAGAI is a monthly performance series curated and hosted by poet Danielle Blau that brings you poetry and fiction readings scored with original live music by composer-improviser-pianist David Cieri and composer-improviser-bassistMike Brown, with other skilled improvisers (horn-players, cellists, violinists, vocalists, who knows?) often dropping in onstage as surprise guest-musicians. 

    About the Curators (whose recent collaboration at Carnegie Hall can be seen here):

    David Cieri is a true artist. Fearless on the piano, a combination of virtuosity, sensitivity and curiosity, he is constantly discovering new ways to express complex emotions through music that has served as the backbone of our films.  - Ken Burns

    This is real music, not trapped by boxes, definitions and genres, but creating its own style. Cieri delivers beautiful moods…honest, imaginative, fearless.  - John Zorn

    David Cieri began playing the violin at the age of three, but switched to the piano at the ripe old age of six. He has studied with members of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra and with ECM recording artist Art Lande, and he has performed his original compositions at such venues as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Cieri’s film-scoring work includes Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War (with Trent Reznor and Yo-Yo Ma, Florentine Films, in post-production), The Roosevelts: An Intimate History (Florentine Films, 2014), The Address (Florentine Films, 2014), Prohibition (with Wynton Marsalis, Florentine Films, 2011), Baseball: The Tenth Inning (Florentine Films, 2010) and the Emmy-winning National Parks (Florentine Films, 2008), Barak Goodman’s Emmy-nominated The Emperor of All Maladies (Ark Media, 2015), and a short directed by George Lucas for The Academy of Arts and Sciences called “The Heart of the Matter” (2014). His original score for Raymond De Felitta's Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story was listed for an Oscar nomination in 2013.

    Danielle Blau’s Rhyme and Reason: Poets and Philosophers on the Questions that Matter is forthcoming from W.W. Norton. She won first place for her poetry in the 2015 multi-genre Narrative 30 Below Contest, and her chapbook mere eye was selected for a Poetry Society of America Chapbook Award and published in 2013 with an introduction by D.A. Powell. Blau's poems, short stories, articles, and interviews have also appeared and are forthcoming in such publications as The Atlantic online, The BafflerBlack ClockThe Harvard ReviewThe Literary ReviewNarrative Magazine, The New Yorker’s book blog, The Paris ReviewPloughshares, The Saint Ann’s Review, The Wolf, and the Argos Books poetry anthology Why I Am Not a Painter. A graduate of Brown University with an honors degree in philosophy, and of NYU with an MFA in poetry, she teaches at the City University of  New York.

    Ann & Bones // Robinson and Rohe 9/24

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    Jean Rohe and Liam Robinson met a decade ago through their love of participatory music-making and American folk song. Their cowritten songs are inspired by the traditions they hold dear and shine with elegant vocal harmonies and detailed arrangements for guitar, banjo, and accordion. Whether in small clubs or on festival stages, Robinson & Rohe’s performances are intimate gatherings in which listeners are invited to share in the music-making. Acclaimed songwriters and performers in their own rights, they bring with them a wealth of creative experience: Liam was a cast member in the Tony Award-winning play, “Warhorse” and recently music directed the hit Off-Broadway folk opera “Hadestown” by songwriter Anaïs Mitchell. He routinely tours with the Becca Stevens Band. Jean’s songwriting has won accolades from the Independent Music Awards, ASCAP, and the Montreux Jazz Festival vocal contest. This year, her song “National Anthem: Arise! Arise!” was published in the latest edition of the popular songbook Rise Up Singing and she was a Troubadour finalist at the 2016 Telluride Bluegrass Festival.R&R poster (no text)

    As a little girl Ann Weller was setting fairy-tales into music on her piano. Today she writes songs together with producer and guitarist Boris Meinhold and drummer Benny Glass. Her warm, fragile voice and her classically influenced piano style are enveloped in minimalistic drum grooves and a mystic-surf guitar. It shines through that the band is resident within the Berlin electronic club scene.

    Tredici Bacci // The Actual Trio Oct 12

     96_simon-0408

    Tredici Bacci, a 14-piece group of musicians all under the age of 30, sounds, to the thoughtful listener, like a celebration. A celebration not of a genre of music, but rather of an era, and, more specifically, the aspects of an era which perhaps have been glossed over by conventional history. Tredici Bacci is celebrating the strange, somewhat seedy, schmaltzy and smooth aspects of 1960s-70s popular culture - our songs are cries in honor to the many artifacts which seem now to be the strange leavings of a recently liberated nation - nay, the sensuous oddities leftover from an entirely different world! Tredicci Bacci is a living homage to french pornography, to italian slasher films, to pop psychedelia! A musical shrine dedicated to bright colors! flugelhorns! sing-song and sexy dialogue! To the Mondo! Absurd romanticism! The sumptuous beauty of strings, to never-ending sambas, to the breakdown of western civilization! Up with Ennio! Up with Bacharach! Let our cries be heard and let no man nor woman forget that they were meant to be sexy! To be sultry! To cry tears of lost love over a backdrop of paisley and powder blue! Huzzah!

    Hailing from Berkeley, CA, guitarist Schott (T.J. Kirk, Junk Genius, Zorn, Waits), bassist Dan Seamans (New Klezmer Trio), and drummer John Hanes (Etta James, Chrome, Henry Kaiser) play original music that swings, falls apart, and then swings again. Their debut disc on Tzadik was praised: With a bright and bold, slightly twangy sound, Schott grazes rock, blues, Thelonious Monk and James “Blood” Ulmer with lithe, original, single-note lines full of swing, surprise and humor. If you like swinging jazz guitar with a zany, eccentric bent, see this threesome.” Paul de Barros, Seattle Times

    Sparkler // Gown of Entry Oct 27

    sparkler-newport-by-john-abbott-7_29_16-1Saxophonist/pianist/composer Peter Apfelbaum presents his newest band, Sparkler. This vocal-heavy and electronica-driven sextet offers the kind of densely layered, polyrhythmic music which Apfelbaum has long been known for with his world music big band, Hieroglyphics, but with generous helpings of silence and more of an emphasis on songs - songs which cover such subjects as the ambidextrous nature of the universe, lucky numbers, the continual disappearance of things and the secret oils that drive the grass.

    Peter Apfelbaum (piano/organ/tenor sax/vocals)
    Natalie Cressman (trombone/bass/vocals)
    Jill Ryan (alto sax/flute/vocals)
    Will Bernard (guitar)
    Kyle Sanna (synths/guitar/bass)
    Charlie Ferguson (drums/percussion/loops)

     
     
    A collaborative trio that met during their final year at the New England Conservatory in the fall of 2015, The Gown of Entry has worked in an improvised setting ever since. The group’s members, Alec Harper (tenor saxophone), Eliot Cardinaux (piano, spoken word), and Aaron Edgcomb (drums, percussion, cymbals), interlace both brightly lyrical and somber melodies with open gestures of form, infiltrating texture and silence alike, crafting resonant, panoramic palates threaded through with lines of their pianist’s original poetry.

    Bulla En El Barrio November 4

    Version 3

    BULLA EN EL BARRIO is a community and a space in New York City to explore 

    at a deeper level the bullerengue tradition born in Colombia in the Urabá and 

    Atlantic regions of the country.  Bullerengue has evolved over the curse of 600 years, since Africans first arrival to what is now Colombia, to be what it is still today: A manifestation specially from Afro, indigenous, mixed race and marginalized communities to express themselves culturally, socially and spiritually through music and dance. Women’s leadership and their power to engage communities into creative processes also characterize bullerengue and this is why through our music, dance, the stories that these songs tell, and in general, through all our interactions with diverse audiences, Bulla En El Barrio also aims to encourage individuals and communities to explore ancestral practices and legacies that celebrate life and heritage

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    Screen Shot 2016-08-13 at 7.55.08 PMGAVAGAI is a monthly performance series curated and hosted by poet Danielle Blau that brings you poetry and fiction readings scored with original live music by composer-improviser-pianist David Cieri and composer-improviser-bassistMike Brown, with other skilled improvisers (horn-players, cellists, violinists, vocalists, who knows?) often dropping in onstage as surprise guest-musicians. 

    About the Curators (whose recent collaboration at Carnegie Hall can be seen here):

    David Cieri is a true artist. Fearless on the piano, a combination of virtuosity, sensitivity and curiosity, he is constantly discovering new ways to express complex emotions through music that has served as the backbone of our films.  - Ken Burns

    This is real music, not trapped by boxes, definitions and genres, but creating its own style. Cieri delivers beautiful moods…honest, imaginative, fearless.  - John Zorn

    David Cieri began playing the violin at the age of three, but switched to the piano at the ripe old age of six. He has studied with members of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra and with ECM recording artist Art Lande, and he has performed his original compositions at such venues as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Cieri’s film-scoring work includes Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War (with Trent Reznor and Yo-Yo Ma, Florentine Films, in post-production), The Roosevelts: An Intimate History (Florentine Films, 2014), The Address (Florentine Films, 2014), Prohibition (with Wynton Marsalis, Florentine Films, 2011), Baseball: The Tenth Inning (Florentine Films, 2010) and the Emmy-winning National Parks (Florentine Films, 2008), Barak Goodman’s Emmy-nominated The Emperor of All Maladies (Ark Media, 2015), and a short directed by George Lucas for The Academy of Arts and Sciences called “The Heart of the Matter” (2014). His original score for Raymond De Felitta's Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story was listed for an Oscar nomination in 2013.

    Danielle Blau’s Rhyme and Reason: Poets and Philosophers on the Questions that Matter is forthcoming from W.W. Norton. She won first place for her poetry in the 2015 multi-genre Narrative 30 Below Contest, and her chapbook mere eye was selected for a Poetry Society of America Chapbook Award and published in 2013 with an introduction by D.A. Powell. Blau's poems, short stories, articles, and interviews have also appeared and are forthcoming in such publications as The Atlantic online, The BafflerBlack ClockThe Harvard ReviewThe Literary ReviewNarrative Magazine, The New Yorker’s book blog, The Paris ReviewPloughshares, The Saint Ann’s Review, The Wolf, and the Argos Books poetry anthology Why I Am Not a Painter. A graduate of Brown University with an honors degree in philosophy, and of NYU with an MFA in poetry, she teaches at the City University of  New York.

    7:30 Doors $10.00 Suggested Donation

    Originally from the UK, Joy Askew has made New York City her home for over 30 years. Not only a singer/songwriter she has played and sung in bands with such luminary artists as Joe Jackson, Peter Gabriel, Laurie Anderson, Jack Bruce and Rodney Crowell and in 1986 appeared in Laurie Anderson's quintessential movie “Home Of The Brave”. Inspired by memories of growing up in the North of England, Joy has recorded her 5th album of original songs "Queen Victoria", with The Brighouse & Rastrick Brass Band from Yorkshire.

    Tyrone Cotton’s music begins with folk blues, reaches outward to soul and rock and roll, landing firmly in the now. The influences of Dylan, Mississippi John Hurt, Hendrix and Jerry Garcia roll behind a lyrical power that Cotton first discovered in Langston Hughes. “Hughes worked hard and worked to a degree of excellence… he can take you to different worlds all historically accurate.  I find him courageous. He wasn’t afraid to be honest about where he was coming from.”

    tyrone_5372-2

    In nearly 30 years of music making, Cotton has stayed close to his home of Louisville KY, making regular trips to New York City and Austin Texas to play. He has shared bills with James Hunter, Johnny Winter, Eric McFadden, and The Blind Boys Of Alabama. Ty’s first recording in 2005 featured Steve Ferguson of NRBQ, and he is currently finishing a new recording with the team of Josh Kaufman and Ray Rizzo, two longtime collaborators with music credits that include Bob Weir, Trixie Whitley, Josh Ritter and Dawn Landes. Recorded in Woodstock NY by Dan Goodwin at his IsOkOn Studio, the album features Stir Fried’s Vin Warner on bass and guest vocals by Will Oldham, a.k.a. Bonnie “Prince” Billy.

    Hailed as “ground-breaking” by noted folklorist and NEA Award-recipient Mick Moloney and “bursting with creativity” by renowned fiddler Kevin Burke, Dana Lyn and Kyle Sanna connect the dots between their experience as composers and improvisers in New York City’s rich musical community and their deep admiration for traditional Irish music. Lyn and Sanna have brought their inventive arrangements and nuanced interpretations of traditional music to clubs, festival stages and concert halls throughout the US and Canada. Their second album, “The Great Arc”, is inspired by and concerned with extinct and endangered animal species. The Irish Echo called it "a deep musical work full of lavish, evocative textures" and Grammy-winning singer Susan McKeown called it "sublime".
