The skies have opened and dropped on us a trio of kids from Geelong, Australia packing some seriously futuristic sludge: ORB. A heaping helping of proto-metal chops meets paranoid sci fi fantastical ravings, replete with some tasty syntheisiser werk that breaks it up just so. Close mic’d to perfection by Total Control’s own Mikey Young, these epics swing with demonic swagger and crackle with the static of a menacing future, twisting and churning through loose-limbed riffery, all punctuated by a wail that sounds as if it’s coming from every hidden camera outside the Ministry of Love. A proggy but in the pocket head-trip hard rock record for the table to be sure, and hopefully these Aussies will be bringing their dystopian groove your way soon. - John Dwyer, Thee Oh Sees
Leonard Bernstein at 100 celebrates the centennial of America’s greatest classical composer and conductor. Drawing from more than 150 photographs, personal items, papers, scores, correspondence, costumes, furniture, and films, Leonard Bernstein at 100 marks the official exhibit of the centennial and is the most comprehensive retrospective of Bernstein’s life and career ever staged in a museum setting. Items on display will include Bernstein’s conductor baton; his first childhood piano; the desk used to compose West Side Story; handwritten score sheets for songs from West Side Story, including “America,” “Tonight,” and “Maria”; Bernstein’s handwritten Harvard study notebook from 1939; and more. In addition to the objects and the multi-media presentations, the exhibit includes a number of interactive displays, designed to allow the museum visitor deep access into Bernstein’s creative mind and music legacy. A listening bar will enable visitors to explore some of Bernstein’s most noted works; and a vocal booth gives visitors the chance to sing lead in West Side Story. Another interactive breaks down the parts of a symphony for greater understanding of Bernstein’s greatest orchestral works, while a specially designed interactive gives visitors the opportunity to step into Bernstein’s conducting shoes and lead the New York Philharmonic. There are Bernstein home movies, GRAMMY® performances, interviews with contemporaries and colleagues, clips of his most noted stage works, segments taken from Bernstein’s famous Young People’s Concerts, and performances with the New York Philharmonic. Leonard Bernstein at 100 was curated by the GRAMMY Museum® in collaboration with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Bernstein Family. Presented in cooperation with the Bernstein Family, The Leonard Bernstein Office, Inc., Brandeis University, and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Additional support is provided by The New York Community Trust - LuEsther T. Mertz Advised Fund, the Leo Shull Foundation for the Arts, Barbara G. Fleischman, Howard and Sarah Solomon, and Dasha Epstein. 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.
Arturo Toscanini (1867 - 1957) remains among the most revered figures in classical music, due in large part to the dissemination of his work through hundreds of commercially produced recordings and wide-reaching radio broadcasts, which helped to define and perpetuate his cultural significance during the second half of his meteoric career. This exhibition explores the iconoclastic yet beloved conductor’s legacy through the very medium in which he worked: sound. With a particular focus on his 17-year career with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, Toscanini: Preserving a Legacy in Sound draws foremost upon the Toscanini Legacy collection of sound recordings, the single largest collection held by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The over 43,000 items represent the full array of audio formats in use during Toscanini’s lifetime, including lacquer, shellac, and vinyl discs, tape reels, cylinders, and wire recordings as well as the more obscure selenophone recordings and the metal parts used in the production of 78 rpms discs. As one of the world’s leading sound archives, the Library for the Performing Arts will place front and center Toscanini’s recordings through ongoing live demonstrations and free public programs devoted to the craft of preserving and archiving the technology he helped define during his lifetime.

Her images of flowers an trees symbolize change, personal growth, and triumph over turmoils. Up-and-coming performance artist Hardy Brooklyn was born and raised in Brooklyn and Nassau County. Hardy was the black sheep of his community, stifled by the conservative environment and society's expectations. Hardy was able to rise above it and became successful in many different industries. On New Year's Day 2016, Hardy and a friend walked into a party and were chosen to be bodypainted. Since then, he has been active in the bodypainting and underground arts, music, and fashion scene. His energy is synonymous with being the life of the party. Professional photographers will be on hand if you want tips and tricks for getting the best shots. You'll also be able to take home one high-quality print up to 11x17" of your best photo (list price $35) -- included in the $30 ticket price!

March 20, 2018 from 6-10 p.m. Event management by Singular Parties.

Medicaid. Medicare. Food Stamps. Head Start. The Great Society of the 1960s is still woven deeply into American life. And it is the subject of vociferous attack in Congress, editorial pages, and presidential tweets. The original drive for the Great Society, led by the still-controversial Lyndon B. Johnson, had at its heart a guarantee of health care for the old and the poor. Steadily, conservatives have built up a formidable counter-drive—culminating in today’s congressional assault on Medicaid. What impact do these fights have on our nation? Why are Great Society policies still under attack? We hear from Joseph Califano, chief domestic aide to President Lyndon B. Johnson and an architect of the Great Society program. Califano served as Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare in the Carter administration, and is one of the nation's leading voices on health and addiction policy. He is joined by Karen Tumulty, a columnist at The Washington Post who closely covered recent fights over Medicaid, immigration, and the Affordable Care Act. 6 PM: Check-In 6:30 PM: Program Part of: The ’60s: The Years that Changed America
