Hello, I'm still recovering from the holidays so I'll keep this short
and snappy. Here are two upcoming events that those of you in New
York will not want to miss:
Now through Tuesday, January 11, 9 pm
KNOCK OFF: REVENGE OF THE LOGO, a documentary about advertising that
features yours truly (looking quite gaunt, frankly), along with the
Reverend Billy and Stuart Ewen.
Two Boots' Pioneer Theater
155 East 3rd Street (at Avenue A)
New York, NY
Stuart Ewen and I will probably be at the show this Friday night to
do a Q&A after the screening. Say "hi" if you come by.
Stay Free! magazine presents
"Jumpin' Jive!: Music shorts before the MTV-era"
Screening at Southpaw in Brooklyn, NY
Tuesday, January 25, 8 pm
Long before MTV was a gleam in Viacom's eye, jazz, blues, and pop
artists were filming some of their favorite numbers. New York-based
archivist Russell Scholl has selected some of the finest moments of
these early music shorts and compiled them. From 1920s hot jazz to
1940s honky-tonk and television-era gospel, these music films promise
to turn even the most jaded audience members into giddy, gushing
fools -- or we'll give you your money back.*
With deejay Dave the Spazz of WFMU spinning jump blues, r & b, and
hot hot soul before and after the screenings.
Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Charlie Parker & Buddy Rich
The Mills Brothers
Django Reinhardt's Hot Club of France
Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys
The Delta Rhythm Boys
International Sweethearts of Rhythm
Proceeds benefit Stay F---!
Doors: 7:30 pm (Screening: 8 pm)
Southpaw is at 125 5th Avenue (bet. Sterling and St. John's Place) in
Park Slope, Brooklyn. Info: (718) 230-0236
