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.

MANU KATCHE THIRD ROUND
Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 8:00pm
$20 adv, $25 at door
Emmanuel 'Manu' Katche was born in St Maur des Fossés, near Paris, in 1958, though his family roots go back to Africa's Ivory Coast. He studied piano from the age of 5, switching to drums at 14 and studying classical percussion at the Conservatoire National Supérieure de Musique de Paris. He has often said that his drum style is essentially an amalgam of African rhythm concepts and classical drumming, illuminated by the in-the-moment interaction of jazz. "When I play jazz I get called a 'rock drummer'. When I do rock projects, critics write about 'the jazz drummer Manu Katché'. But I'm just being myself, trying to be innovative as the music is played, and I guess that is more of a 'jazz' attitude."

with Supercluster

$55 adv, $60 at door
The first of many acts to cement the college town of Athens, GA, as a hotbed of alternative music, the B-52's took their name from the Southern slang for the mile-high bouffant wigs sported by singers Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson, a look emblematic of the band's campy, thrift-store aesthetic. The year 2008 found the band responsible for "Love Shack" returning with a new album for the first time in 16 years. Released by Astralwerks, Funplex, was a slick, synthesizer-driven effort produced by Steve Osborne.

CONCERT FOR UGANDA: Featuring The Kin, Dan Torres & Caleb Hawley
Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 7:30pm
$12 adv, $15 at door
Uganda is a country in central Africa that has been plagued by HIV/AIDS, a vicious Civil War, and extreme poverty. LEAD Uganda (www.leaduganda.org) locates the best and the brightest children living on the edges of this society- AIDS orphans, former child soldiers, child laborers and sex slaves. They are put in the best schools in Uganda and given all the necessary support and encouragement to become the next generation of indigenous leadership in the country. LEAD Uganda is unique in its approach to improving The Situation in Uganda. By using an African, not Western, approach, the children are taught skills to help them change the future. Instead of creating a dependency, the children are taught how to improve their country with their own ambitions and skills. This August, a group of 14 volunteers are traveling to Uganda to assist LEAD Uganda in its mission to mold these children into leaders. Not only will they be helping the kids to reach their full potential, they are helping Uganda to break the cycle of dependency on foreign aid and leadership. This benefit will help the team of volunteers raise money for this trip, as well as awareness of the troubles Uganda are currently facing. If you would like to learn more on how to help this wonderful organization, please visit www.leaduganda.org.

WILLIAM FITZSIMMONS
with Rosi Golan
Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 8:00pm
$20
William Fitzsimmons is one of the oddest people you will ever meet. Born the youngest child of two blind parents, William was raised in the outskirts of the steel city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Due to the family's inability to communicate through normal visual means, William's childhood home was filled with a myriad of sounds to replace what eyes could not see. The house was suffused with pianos, guitars, trombones, talking birds, classical records, family sing-a-longs, bedtime stories, and the bellowing of a pipe organ, which his father built into the house with his own hands. When his father's orchestral records were not resonating through the walls, his mother would educate him on the folk stylings of James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Simon & Garfunkel. By the completion of his youth and schooling, Fitzsimmons had become well-versed at a variety of instruments, at the minor expense of social standing, interactional skills, and a knowledge of proper shaving technique. William draws from those early folks stylings of his mother's music, and the embellished instrumentation of his father's. He is often compared to contemporaries Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine, and the late Elliott Smith, not only for his unique style and skill in writing and proclivity to deal with substantive and evocative subject matter, but also for his use of organic and colorful melodies and arrangements.

Saturday, July 17

BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY
Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 8:00pm
$25 adv, $30 at door
BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY's eighth studio album, HOW BIG CAN YOU GET? A Tribute to Cab Calloway, captures the essence of an American icon in a rowdy celebration of musicianship, mischief, genius, street smarts, and fun. It's also possibly the timeliest and most welcome album of the year -- bringing a much-needed high-voltage jolt of winning, feel-good energy to a country slogging through tough times that may be getting tougher...exactly the way that Calloway's music did in the Depression-era America of his own youth. Longtime fans of "America's favorite little big band" will immediately recognize the album as a milestone in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's multi platinum-selling sixteen-year career.

STREETLIGHT MANIFESTO
with Crime In Stereo, The Wonder Years, Dan Potthast
Doors at 6:30pm, Show at 7:30pm
$19 adv, $22 at door
Seven guys, seven different musical backgrounds, seven different personalities, one band, one unique and unmistakable voice. Formed four years ago in New Jersey as an ad hoc group intended to put out one album and disappear, one thing lead to another and within a few months of their debut release, Everything Goes Numb, Streetlight Manifesto were officially a full time touring band, traveling the world, spreading their infectious and energetic tunes to all who would listen. One part rock, one part ska, with influences from latin, klezmer, folk, world, funk, jazz and classical thrown in, the band redefined what most people expected from a "ska" band. Three albums later, and after countless worldwide tours, the guys are still at it, still performing live to sold out shows filled with sweat drenched fans, all dancing and singing along at the top of their lungs. And the Streetlight boys wouldn't have it any other way.
