Hard-Driving Star D.J.’s Serve Up the Thumps
Dance music is no place to quibble over authorship. Sets at Electric Zoo mingled self-produced music with samples and remixes that dissected songs down to usable elements and surrounded them with new superstructures; the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll,” with its injunction to “Dance till you’re dead,” got multiple treatments. - READ MORE -
It is a privilege to be able to work with Lala Productions. They have given me the opportunity to showcase my abilities as a designer on some of the most prestigious gigs of my 20+ year career in live entertainment. All of the members of the crew are at the top of their game with an enormous wealth of collective production experience amongst them. Truly a pleasure to have such professional co-workers and collaborators.

CBGB Lives On in Thursday Night Live
Two years ago, John Varvatos took over the CGBG address (20% off via Access Network Perks, by the way!), turning the iconic rock venue into a Bowery storefront. Despite the tears shed over the loss of punk’s most notorious landmark, the interior has done its part to stay true to the initial spirit: relics of times past litter the room and original graffiti covers the walls, keeping the bohemian rock feel alive with the store’s bad-ass boudoir vibe. - READ MORE -

Came So Far For Beauty
These types of nights aren't supposed to happen until you're dead. Came So Far for Beauty, which runs for three nights as part of the Sydney Festival, feels like a wake for a respected songwriter or band - only they are celebrating the living treasure Leonard Cohen, for only the third time after performances in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and the English seaside town of Brighton. - READ MORE -

Patterns of a Summer Night, to the Strains of Jazz, Tango or Gospel
Viewing dance at Central Park SummerStage is a little like watching television through the window of your neighbor’s apartment. If the faraway stage doesn’t pop with vigorous, athletic choreography, the point is rendered murky. And there lies the challenge of bringing original dance to the masses. - READ MORE -

They always maintain a professional attitude at all times. Everyone has a positive attitude and is always willing to help with whatever needs to be taken care of.

Theater review: 'A Streetcar Named Desire' at BAM Harvey Theater
Sorry, Stanley — you may have hit a home run with Marlon Brando back in the day, but the play’s true protagonist is clarified in the Sydney Theatre Company’s otherwise erratic production, which had its New York unveiling Tuesday at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater.
