GIL EVANS CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION Kicks Off Highline Ballroom Events, 5/21-6/4


Highline Ballroom has announced its upcoming shows, May 21-June 4, 2012. See below for the full schedule.

EVERY SATURDAY LATE NIGHT at The Highline Ballroom:

The Rewind Show
with live performances and celebrity DJs
21 or over to enter
Doors at 10:30pm, Show at 11:00pm
$20 at door

The Rewind Show is a vision we have had for as long as we have been in the business of night clubs and event planning. We are tired of the same concept that every night-club in NYC has been stuck with over the years and think that it's time to change the way to party! As we all know nothing can compare to a live performance and therefore we have created the Rewind Show! We want to bring an experience like no other by combining the live music of the 80's Rock & Roll era along with the best DJ's spinning the present hits. Every Saturday night, the Highline Ballroom will operate as a high-end night club to let people experience the Rewind Show. (

With a name that refers partly to the Indian gugu Sai Baba and partly to The Jetsons (Los Supersónicos in Spanish), indie rock collective Babasónicos first emerged in the wave of new Argentine rock bands of the late '80s and early '90s, along with groups like Peligrosos Gorriones and Los Brujos. The outfit quickly became one of the banner groups of the country's sonic underground movement in the late '90s. Lead singer Adrián "Dárgelos" Rodríguez and keyboardist Diego "Uma-T" Tuñón initially decided to create a New Wave style, which didn't fall in line with the established traditions of Argentine rock music. The group's second album Trance Zomba (1994) incorporated a guest DJ, and the ensuing years saw the band experiment with various diverse styles.

If you’re going to make soul music – joyful, authentic, modern yet classic soul music – it really helps if that music is allowed to come straight from your soul. That's exactly where Nikka Costa's music has been coming from since she was a little girl. Born in Tokyo, she literally grew up in music. Her father, legendary producer, conductor, and arranger Don Costa, had a profound influence on her life, even though he suddenly passed away when she was 10 years old. By that point, Costa was already a successful recording artist. At eight years old, she released her first album, which featured her version of "Out Here on My Own" from Fame. The release was the beginning of many albums and tours throughout Europe, South America, Australia, and more, which led to a nominations for ARIA Breakthrough Artist in 1996, Best Female Artist in 1997, and MTV's Best New Artist in 2001.
