February 23 at 7:00 PM; $20
FAHRENHEIT 451

From the novel by Ray Bradbury
Adapted and directed by Wynn Handman
Performed by Rich Orlow

This classic American novel presents a frightening vision of the future: firemen don't put out fires - they start them in order to burn books.

The event features sixty minutes of performance spanning the full breadth of this beloved American Science Fiction novel. A master of character work, the actor Rich Orlow tells the story from the perspective of the protagonist, Montag, and seamlessly transitions between the five other primary characters. The adaptation by Wynn Handman of Bradbury's classic novel presents a haunting look at the dangers of censorship in a modern world. In addition we will show a rare interview with author Ray Bradbury and executive director David Kenner.

March 5-8
THE LEFT BANKE
Saturday & Sunday, March 5 & 6 at 7:30 PM; $20

THE LEFT BANKE stormed onto the charts in the summer of 1966, with a new sound that came to be called "Baroque Pop." Their first album, Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina, set the standard for the fusion of classical music and pop music styles. Their second LP, Left Banke Too- recorded after the departure of pianist/songwriter Michael Brown- went even deeper, and showed that the remaining band members were still a force to be reckoned with. Founding members Tom Finn and George Cameron have not performed together since the early 1970s, and Joe's Pub is proud to welcome them at their first show!

Clinton Curtis: ALBUM RELEASE
Saturday, March 5 at 9:30 PM; $12

Clinton Curtis grew up between the islands of Jamaica and Key West, Florida, the son of musicians and reggaehall owners. As a kid, he played with and learned from some of the Jamaican giants- Gregory Isaacs, Desmond Dekker and Roots Explosion. By 13, he was fluent on more than a dozen instruments.

At age 18, Clinton moved to New York and began working as a singer in Greenwich Village. It was there in the bars and clubs that defined so much of music history, that he realized he wanted to write popular music. He teamed up with producer Matt Stine, and signed to indie label 27 Sound. Currently, Clinton and his band are a fixture in the downtown NY music scene.

Clinton's music represents the coming together of all the musical genres he has been exposed to throughout his life. From Country to Reggae, from Blues to Bach, Clinton Curtis is a throwback to the great songwriters of the 1960's with the musical versatility and voice of a new artist set on making his mark on today's popular music landscape.

Featuring: Cole Escola (LOGO's Jeffery & Cole Casserole)
Amber Martin(Amber Alert!)

ARTS & CRAFTS is a musical romp written by and starring Sandra Bernhard & Justine Vivian Bond in which they play country cousins whose lives have led them in very different directions. One went from being a rock chick to born again motherhood in the Midwest and the other from small town gay to urban art world sophisticate. When the two meet up again at a family wedding they set of on a journey rediscovering their authentic selves and learning that ideology doesn't mean much when stacked up against art love and really good acid.

ANNA CALVI
Tuesday, March 8 at 7:30 PM; $12
Anna Calvi's self-titled debut album is scheduled to release on March 1st, 2011 in the US on Domino Records.

Adopting an intimate backing band consisting of Mally Harpaz on guitar, harmonium and percussion, and Daniel Maiden-Wood on drums for her live shows, Anna has managed to encapsulate all the drama and emotion of a flamenco dance into her performances. The art of flamenco has consequently had a massive impact on Anna's fierce, upfront stage persona, and the outfits she and her band choose to perform in, the visual element of Anna's art being of such huge importance to her.

‘Anna Calvi' is a remarkable album from a woman who has more than justified the support of such luminaries as Brian Eno and Nick Cave, which as well as feeling like a fully formed piece of art in its own right, also serves as an enthralling insight into what may lay ahead for Anna in the future.

TONY LUCCA w/ special guest JERAD FINCK
Tuesday, March 8 at 9:30 PM; $12

Singer-songwriter Tony Lucca's sixth studio album Rendezvous With the Angels, finds the performer crafting his most thoughtful, tuneful, and mature work yet.
