Stew & Heidi: Songs From Passing Strange ft. Jon Spurney
October 4 at 7:00pm & 9:30pm - $30
Join Stew, Heidi Rodewald and Jon Spurney for the grand re-opening of Joe's Pub as they take a journey back in time to re-visit the songs of Passing Strange, the theater production that went on to become both a Spike Lee-directed movie and Tony Award winner for "Best Book of a Musical." This intimate, acoustic set will explore songs from this hit show as well as songs that were cut from the show and songs never before heard on a New York stage.
With a gift for hook-filled melodies, taut poetic narratives, incisive song portraits and a sardonic sense of humor, the brilliant Stew and Heidi Rodewald are among New York's preeminent singer-songwriters. The New York Times raves "A witty wordsmith, composer and performer, Stew can also play a mean guitar, and when necessary, he strides the stage like an evangelical preacher, or a preening rocker, to whip the audience into a froth."
Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments
October 5 at 9:30pm - $20
Bridget Everett hits the stage with a live band and a bottle of booze to sing all her favorite love songs and share the stories of the men that made her ... feel? From tender moments to prison sex, come get inside her. Special guests include Murray Hill and more!

October 10 at 7:00pm - $20 advance / $25 door
Before the art of song was divided into narrow stylistic slices, before there was Jazz or Pop or Rock, there was Nightclub Singing. Like Sammy Davis, Jr, Ethel Water and Mel Tormé before him, Julian Fleisher mixes masterful interpretations of a wide range of popular songs with kick-ass showmanship and a generously endowed band that - as the Washington Post put it - "blew the roof off of Joe's Pub."

INDIO: Written and Performed Alladin Ullah Directed by Chay Yew
Oct 27 & Nov 1 at 7:00pm - $15
Auditioning to play a terrorist in a major Hollywood movie may be stand-up comedian Aladdin's big break. As he prepares for his audition, he finds himself thinking back on his deceased father, who left Bangladesh for a better life in New York, and his parents' futile attempts to raise him Muslim in Spanish Harlem. Accompanied by the tabla, Aladdin takes us a hilarious and moving journey about art, immigration, family, the Yankees and the nature of the American dream.
An inaugural member of the Public Theater's Emerging Writers Group, Aladdin developed his solo show Indio at the Public, including via its the New Work Now! reading series, and at New York Theater Workshop, Cape Cod Theater Project, The Lark Play Development Center, and Shakespeare in Paradise in the Bahamas.
