Kathleen Supové and the Electric Sheep play the Flea: “One of America’s most acclaimed interpreters of contemporary music for piano and keyboard, Kathleen Supové brings listeners four engagingly futuristic pieces by emerging composers in this evening of cutting-edge new music.”

Joseph Arthur and Tift Merritt play City Winery. No offense to Arthur, but I want Merritt alone!

The Museum of Jewish Heritage hosts the New York premiere of The Chosen, adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok from the novel by Chaim Potok; the staged reading is directed by Jonathan Solari. “Set in 1940s Brooklyn, The Chosen tells the story of an unlikely friendship between two young Jewish men—one, the son of an influential Hasidic spiritual leader, the other, the son of a renowned Zionist professor.”

At the Museum of Jewish Heritage: “Sway Machinery plays traditional Jewish music funky enough for a nightclub that combines soulful Yiddish and Hebrew melodies with  rock n’ roll and rowdy brass lines into what the Village Voice calls a ‘joyful synthesis.’ In their latest album, the super group combines neo-cantorial vocals with the mystical traditions of Mali. The band is joined by the experimental trio Piano Music and Song.”

Ben Lee plays City Winery.

At the Museum of Jewish Heritage: “The Mama Doni Band is back for a pre-Purim concert featuring brand-new songs and a costume parade. Families will receive free CDs and giveaways. The day’s events are geared for children ages 3 to 10.”

  1. Brilliant clip of Todd Rundgren. Where did The Midnight Special go?
    And what a true original he was/is. As fantastic as Lady Gaga’s costumes are it’s interesting to note how referential they really are. A glimpse back to the 70’s is so interesting. As Shirley Bassey (with The Propeller Heads) sings –‘It’s all just a little bit of history repeating itself.’
