Skirball Cultural Center to Present 'Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip,' Opening 3/24Skirball Cultural Center to Present 'Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip,' Opening 3/24
by BWW News Desk - Jan 28, 2015

From March 24 through August, , the Skirball Cultural Center presents Rock & Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip, featuring works by Los Angeles-based photographer Robert Landau. On view will be more than twenty photographs from the only extensive collection of images that capture the hand-painted, temporary billboards that lined L.A.'s fabled Sunset Strip for almost two decades. Taken when Landau was just a teen, the photographs document the emergence of an expressive art form uniquely suited to the city of L.A. and bring to life a colorful and fleeting period in American popular culture. They trace the cultural phenomenon of rock billboard advertising from its inception in 1967 - with the promotion of the Doors' debut album - to the advent of MTV in the 1980s. The photographs also offer a glimpse into L.A.'s past, portraying both the city's infrastructure and inhabitants at the time. (more...)

CABARET LIFE NYC: Listmania Redux! My Best/Favorite 20 Shows & Performances of 2014, With 30 'Bests & Mosts' of An Exciting Year in CabaretCABARET LIFE NYC: Listmania Redux! My Best/Favorite 20 Shows & Performances of 2014, With 30 'Bests & Mosts' of An Exciting Year in Cabaret
by Stephen Hanks - Jan 21, 2015

As the days dwindled down to a precious few in 2014, a few cabaret goers and performers in what is affectionately but also self-mockingly called the “cabaret community” would sidle up and ask if I was planning my annual end-of-the year “Best Of” column, similar to the “Top 20 Bests and Favorites” piece over the first half of the year I posted back in early July. I would respond in the negative with very reasonable and believable excuses, but the truth is I didn't want to reveal my “Bests” of the year until the voting for the 2014 BroadwayWorld New York Cabaret Awards had ended. There's enough baggage and backstage whispering that comes with administering the BWW Awards, so I wasn't about to publish any opinions that might influence the vote while it was in process. I may be crazy but I'm not masochistic. But now all bets are off. You want lists? I'll give you lists. (more...)

Bill Frisell to Play SOPAC, 1/22Bill Frisell to Play SOPAC, 1/22
by BWW News Desk - Jan 13, 2015

Former Hoboken resident and guitarist, Bill Frisell, takes to the stage at the South Orange Performing Arts Center Thursday, January 22nd at 7:30PM to navigate audiences through the sounds of surf, blues, country, swing and rock. His performance, Guitar in the Space Age!, is a look back through decades of music with the perspective of an astronaut peering at the crystalline image of the planet earth through millions of miles of outer space. BillBoard magazine said it best when stated, 'No one refracts age-old Americana through a cutting-edge prism with the warm-hearted, fleet-minded individuality of Frisell.' Joining Frisell for this performance will be fellow guitar master Greg Leisz on electric and pedal steel guitars, and his trio partners Tony Scherr on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums. (more...)
