I Herd of Theremins

27 03 2014

Herding cats, collecting moonbeams, getting a great $10 dinner on the upper East Side – these are a few of the impossibilities that can’t hold a candle to an upcoming NY Theremin Orchestra concert this Sat in Brooklyn. Yes they’ll be waving their arms in the air (say ho!) to a hard-to-wrangle SiFi beat, slipin’ anda slidin’ electronically, guessing at notes just for you. Our pal P. George will be one of the players. Plus some amazing ringer, like Dorit Chrysler and Rob Schwimmer, who will add gravitas and gracenotes proper.

Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation
159 Pioneer Street Brooklyn, NY 11231

Ann Coulter + Afrika Bambaataa, Together Again!

7 03 2014

Strange bedfellows last night at the the We Are Family Foundation Gala in NYC.  But for a good cause.  The evening honored Little Steven Van Zandt and your host was ARC Board member Nile Rodgers, whose foundation mentors young high-minded go-getters and builds schools around the world.


OK, so AC and AB were not on the stage together, but she did introduce big supporters, members of the Mellon family, and this speaks tons for good causes bringing a WIDE variety of people together.  It was a great night, lots of money raised (how much would you pay for an autographed “Get Lucky” single?) and a rollicking version of “Sun City” performed by Bambaataa, Melle Mel, Steve Van Zandt, a Sister Sledge, Nona Hendryx and Nile with the latest version of Chic. Not stuffy and a very nice evening indeed.
