Today! Make Music New York

Today is the 2nd Annual Make Music New York Festival.... there will be 800 live, Free outdoor concerts today spread across the city and boroughs... More info can be found on the main website, but highlights definitely include Newspeak at 6:30 pm at the Cornelia Street Cafe. (Take anything to the W4 stop)

We begin the set with David T. Little's Sweet Light Crude, a grungy rock ballad about loving something you know you shouldn't, and move on to a new composition of New Amsterdam founder Sarah Snider, This Is What You're Like ,a sort of modern day Penelope, sung from the perspective of a wife who's husband has returned from war and all the adjustments that come with, and we close the set with Frederic Rzewski's Coming Together which you remember from our 'loud enough to make Rezewski move to the back' rendition from the Rzewski show in May. That piece is just intense, and that's all there is to it. It's gonna be a great show. Hope to see some of you there.
