Vanderlei Pereira and Blindfold Test
Brazilian music night at Solo Kitchen Bar with Vai, Menina! and a choro roda
5-6:15 pm: Vai, Menina! (Go, girl!)
This will be our second performance playing tunes from Cartola, Tom Zé, Dorival and Dori Caymmi, and other great Brazilian composers.
6:30-8:30 pm: Brooklyn Choro Roda!
Dominique and I will host a CHORO RODA! This is a jam session where we’ll be playing this very fun and virtuosic style of Brazilian music. If you’re a musician and have no clue as to what choro is (or even if you do), bring your instrument and join us! We’ll have printed sheet music and the atmosphere is completely fun. Vamos!
Take the Q train to Cortelyou- it's super close to the station!!
Next Tues, 26 Jan from 8-9:15 pm (one set)
Saturday, February 13, through Sunday, February 21, 2010
The film will be shown in Tut’s Fever (1986-88), the spectacular one-of-a-kind art work and 35-seat theater created by Red Grooms and Lysiane Luong. An homage to the ornate movie palaces of the 1920s, Tut’s Fever is part of the Museum’s core exhibition Behind the Screen and has been described as a “surrealistic movie palace.” Every surface is covered with witty Egyptian-inspired motifs and cartoon-like caricatures of larger-than-life figures from Hollywood’s golden age—Orson Welles, Cecil B. DeMille, the Marx Brothers, Marilyn Monroe, and Charlie Chaplin among them.
