Back to Reality
Well, the holiday season is over and the snow from Friday's storm has melted. School is back in session for a full week. It's time to get back to reality (at least until the next snow storm).
Here are some events taking place this week on Fifth Avenue. Attending one may make the transition to reality a little easier to swallow:
*John Hodgman visits Union Hall on Monday (tonight) and Wednesday. However, it appears that both shows are Sold Out! Call or email them to see if additional tickets are available.
*Knights of Bruklyn Home Brew Competition: Home-Made Beer. Samples. Competition. Need we say more? Tuesday, January 7 at Union Hall
*Musical Ecologies with JD Parran: Part of the Old Stone House monthly series of concerts. JD Parran is a Multi-instrumentalist and composer who has mastered a wide variety of woodwind instruments (from the familiar tenor saxophone to the rarely heard alto clarinet, E-flat contrabass clarinet, bass saxophone and bamboo flute). He has appeared on more than 50 recordings over the last three decades, including collaborations with The Band, Anthony Braxton, Don Byron, Anthony Davis, Julius Hemphill, New Winds, Yoko Ono, Bill Dixon, Andrew Hill and Stevie Wonder among many others. Thursday at 8. Details: http://theoldstonehouse.org/event/musical-ecologies-jd-parran/
