About the show: "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."

About the show: "New York City-based electronica and rock duo Dangerous Muse formed when Mike Furey and Tom Napack met as students at Fordham University. Furey, a singer-songwriter trained in piano, wanted to experiment with a more electronic sound, and Napack, a musician-programmer, was looking to collaborate with a lyricist. The two's first recording, The Rejection (2005), caught the attention of legendary record mogul Seymour Stein, who offered the duo a demo deal with Sire Records and facilitated their signing to Cordless Recordings, a digital imprint of Warner Music Group. Soon after, the duo signed with former Warner Bros. Records Senior Executive, Craig Kostich of Operational Art, for management. Look for their hotly anticipated record to drop very, very soon."

About the show: "On its way from Vladivostok to the world, Mumiy Troll (pronounced Moo-me Troll) is undoubtedly the most significant band that modern Russia has produced since the fall of the Soviet regime. The group has made its mark with startling albums and live performances that are bursting with energy, combining warmth and total debauchery. What exactly does the band sound like? Consider the term "rockapops." Band founder and frontman Ilya Lagutenko has defined his group's music style "rockapops" just to avoid pointless Russian media debates on the definition of what is rock and what is pop. The band has tailored this musical synthesis to become the leader of an entire new musical trend, copied now to greater or lesser degree by a large number of Russian wannabes and mainstream artists."

Where's My Money Tour
Andre Nickatina
With Fashawn & MUMBLS

Concert starts @ 9:00PM
Doors open @ 7:00PM
Full dinner menu available
General Admission Standing Room
Limited seating available

$10 min per person at tables
All ages

About the show: "Born and raised in the Fillmore District of San Francisco, Andre Nickatina has been a hip-hop luminary since the release of his critically acclaimed debut The New Jim Jones (1993). A favorite at public venues and on college campuses, he continues to sustain a loyal fan base, while engaging new supporters throughout North America. Nickatina's longevity speaks for itself. An award-winning emcee and producer, his vision has expanded beyond the almost 20 albums (and hundreds of thousands of sales) that he has executive-produced. Also a diverse artist, he has gained critical acclaim for his work and vision as a filmmaker, with more than seven films to his credit as either a director, co-director, executive producer, producer, or actor.

"Without saying so, for over two decades Nickatina has had his finger on the pulse of what is raw, uncut and capable of capturing the mind and ears of listeners. Never one to follow or ride trends, Nickatina is a rare breed of artist… one of the last original trend setters. His reputation in the hip-hop community is legendary, as an artist who was not only present during the golden era of hip-hop, but is also one of the few musicians who has helped the music grow and who has remained ultimately relevant with each successive album he has released. His relevance continues with his Where's My Money Tour, which celebrates the release of his brand new mixtape of the same name, out March 11th."

From straight ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, and children's songs to chamber music, along with some far-reaching forays into symphonic works, Corea has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his illustrious career, all while maintaining a standard of excellence that is awe inspiring. A tirelessly creative spirit, Corea continues to forge ahead, continually reinventing himself in the process. A full slate of activities scheduled for 2012 will surely keep this ever-evolving artist at the forefront of the jazz world and beyond."

About the show: "Originally influenced by Mick Jagger and by Rob Tyner of MC5, David Johansen began his career as the singer of the protopunk band the New York Dolls in the early '70s. Johansen wrote the bulk of the material for the band, along with guitarist Johnny Thunders. In the late '80s, belated commercial success came Johansen's way under the pseudonym Buster Poindexter, appearing as part of the house band on Saturday Night Live. After the success of Poindexter, in the late '90s Johansen turned his attention in yet another direction, this time to country blues with the release of David Johansen and the Harry Smiths (2000). In addition to his work with the new edition of the Dolls, he continues to host David Johansen's Mansion of Fun, a weekly radio show on Sirius."

Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80
Opening Act(s): Zozo Afrobeat, DJ Rich Medina

Concert starts @ 8:00PM
Doors open @ 7:00PM
Full dinner menu available
General Admission Standing
Limited seating available
First come, first seated
$10 min. per person at tables
All ages

About the show: "Born in 1983, Seun Kuti first began performing with Egypt 80, the extraordinary combo first fronted by his father Fela, at age nine, warming up audiences with renditions of his father's songs. After Fela's death in 1997, Seun stepped up to the front of the band, leading the celebrated combo as both lead vocalist and saxophonist. Kuti is determined to speak to the new generation of young Africans born after his father's glory days. If he learned but one lesson from Fela, it is that that no one has greater impact on hearts and mind than the true artist. As such, the powerhouse protest music found on From Africa with Fury: Rise serves as a kind of musical antidote to the corporate pop that he feels is polluting Africa's airwaves, distracting its citizens from the things that truly matter. "Music has great impact on people's feelings," he says. "That's what music should be. Pop music today is all about me, me, me. Nobody is singing about we. But nothing can change if we don't look out for our Brothers and Sisters.""

General Admission Seating
First come, first seated

About the show: "Over the course of a life that has seen him experience brutal government oppression through two separate Tuareg rebellions, life in exile, and numerous other incredible hardships, Bombino has developed a truly unique style of music that carries a powerful message. His electrifying jams capture the spirit of resistance and rebellion while echoing with guitar riffs reminiscent of fellow Africans Tinariwen and Ali Farka Touré, not to mention rock and blues icons such as Jimi Hendrix, John Lee Hooker, and Jimmy Page."
