Containertopia! Sunday Performance

CONTAINERTOPIA
Sunday, April 30th, 2017
8pm. 1 hour runtime, no intermission. After party and live music to follow at the Jalopy Tavern.
This apartment has everything! Song. Dance. Jokes. Zoning laws. Environmental collapse. Housing crises. Existential crises. A game show. A therapy session. All this in under 250 square feet.
America has a fever for tiny living. Whether out of economic necessity or cultural zeitgeist, the micro-apartment has captured the public imagination. Is it salvation or shtick? A new model for sustainability or crass profiteering?
CONTAINERTOPIA is a 21st-century take on vaudeville that looks at the ever-shrinking living spaces that New Yorkers submit themselves to. With synthesizer-heavy Weimar cabaret tunes, original music, and projection-based set design, our multimedia cabaret explores and exposes the popular trend of tiny living. What afforded to us is affordable?

At Jalopy Tavern: Matt Munisteri

Jalopy Tavern
Monday, May 1st, 2017
8pm

With Seth Cronin on bass! Seeking to complement your own sweet repast, Matt Munisteri will be instrumentally rendering, upon the electrical guitar, an array of auditory intoxicants and digestivos. The songs he’ll be playing are grouped together by virtue of the fact that each melody was once central to someone’s childhood - that and the fact that Matt is now playing them just for you.

OPEN MIC NIGHT WILL BE HELD IN JALOPY TAVERN

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017
Sign up in person by 9:00pm

Performance order will be drawn at random at 9:00pm Sharp!
Each performer gets two songs or 8 minutes.

Instrumental Klezmer Workshop

Thursday, May 04th, 2017
6:30pm

In 2011 we added a Klezmer Workshop to the series, and it has been slowly and steadily gaining momentum. We hope that in our beautiful new setting it will continue to flourish. Often led by series director, Aaron Alexander, the focus is on learning classic klezmer repertoire – usually we’ll learn a couple tunes every week. We learn common dance forms and their proper rhythms, the common klezmer modes, melodic ornamentation, accompanying parts, and whatever people want to learn. We often will have the concert artist lead the workshop. In the past we’ve had Pete Sokolow, Frank London, Michael Winograd, Margot Leverett, Zevy Zions, Matt Darriau, and others guest lead the workshop.

Bring your own instrument and music stand. We learn both by ear and with written music. Music will usually, but not always, be available for C, Bb, and Eb instruments.

There is a discounted fee if you take the workshop and attend the concert – $35

Vocal Harmony Duos & Trios with Don Friedman and Phyllis Elkind

Sunday, May 7th, 2017
2:00PM-4:00PM
Explore the rich world of Early Country, Bluegrass, Old Time, and Gospel harmony singing, from lesser-known repertoire to old chestnuts. Focus on two and three-part harmony singing, with opportunities to gain independence on a part, work in small groups, experiment with blend, and take home some new songs. Less advanced singers can start with the melody and then move to harmonizing, and more advanced singers can go deep into singing multiple parts.
