I got a note from Jason Eckardt about an event called The Anti-Inaugural Ball, to be held, of course, on Inauguration Day, January 20, at 7 pm, at the Di Menna Center in NYC. As the announcement puts it:
Musicians from across the NYC experimental and jazz community counter cynicism with sound with performances by
Phyllis Chen & Friends • Jordan Dodson • ETHEL
Flor de Toloache – Mariachi Femenino • Flutronix • Gemini
International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) • JACK Quartet
Darius Jones • loadbang • So Percussion • Adam Tendler
With dancing provided by DJ Robert Maril
On January 20th, 2017, all-star musicians from throughout the experimental and jazz communities of NYC will come together for a marathon fundraiser concert/dance party in the acoustically intimate Mary Flagler Cary Hall at the The DiMenna Center for Classical Music. The concert is FREE to attend, and will provide laptop stations for attendees to donate funds for institutions that uphold America’s democracy and diversity including ACLU, LAMBDA Legal, Planned Parenthood, Southern Poverty Law Center, Hollaback!, and more. Representatives from organizations will be in attendance.
Join us in our response to the current political climate for a night of positive action, deep listening, ecstatic sound, and community.
