Music

3/22 in a nutshell…
Real gone, man! Plus a peppering of Ska-Like from the likes of Frankie Ford and Duke Ellington, some Caltone reissues, and an unannounced back-to-back comparison of pre-Wailers Marley (Do You Still Love Me) and Derrick Morgan’s strikingly similar-sounding take on “By The Light of the Silvery Moon”, title shortened to “The Moon”. Past the “Ooh”, Sherwood B. Funn fills the Zero-G with everyone from Terry Snyder to David Carroll, from Zavier Cugat to Milton Banana… and he can’t resist some Ska when it’s Giuliano Palma doing Bond… James Bond! A Mutant Frogs set makes up the 4(+1)@4, Billie Tam straight outa HK’s gotchaSKAllipopped, and the spirit of King Stitt (r.i.p., King, we’ll miss ya!) chimes in. The Big ‘C’ claimed him on Jan. 31st, and we’ll mount a proper tribute next week… stay tuned.

Kristina plays soleares and nothing else. They are heartwrenchingly rendered by some of the greatest flamenco voices in history.

Rhiana Yazzie & Vaughn Lodge from New Native Theatre speaks about their upcoming production, “Raven Stole The Sun”.
