The Quavers/LAS RUBIAS DEL NORTE
Saturday, July 28
Their sound is a re-invention, a nostalgic throwback to a time and place mostly imagined where Peruvian waltzes, Andean huaynos and Cuban Guajiras mix with French opera, Cowboy tunes and Bollywood classics. The result plays like a dreamy soundtrack with classical harmonies set to a Latin beat. Their new album, Ziguala is an attempt to imagine what a pop record would sound like had the global Latin influence which was so prevalent until the early 60′s had continued its course without interruption. The tracks on the album are re-interpretations of songs from Spain, France, Peru, India, Mexico, Greece, Venezuela, Colombia and Naples. Ziguala is not so much a latin record as it is a pop record that uses a latin vocabulary. Think of it as the opposite of Rock en Español, itself a Latin genre which uses a rock vocabulary.

Saturday, July 28, 10pm
Peter Stampfel & the Ether Frolic Mob consists of whoever is available and up for it whenever. Stampfel is performing. What is Ether Frolic? Ether Frolic is when ether came into use in the 19th century, it was widely introduced by Ether Frolics–a stage would be rented, the audience would be charged, the ’show’ involved people inhaling ether on stage and carrying on in a manner not common to 19th century behavioral norms.

Honesty Box @ THE END.
Date(s): 18 Jun 2011
Time: 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Where: The End, Brooklyn
Event Details: “Honesty Box” is a live amalgam of the old Facebook app “Honesty Box”and the Catholic confessional. A white person-sized box with a light blue banner, replicating the Facebook aesthetic, is built to confessional proportions, so that participants can step in, and speak with honesty and confidentiality to the performance artist. The performance artist offers witnessing, listening, infinite patience and guidance, as she and the participant meet in the space between the communal intimacy of the old-school confessional and the flirtatious anonymity of the Facebook application. Most of us crave a safe and honest conference, and have lost faith in both religious models and cheap apps. What does it mean to unburden and receive comfort? Find out!

Radio Happy Hourwith special guests Sun Airway and Hank & Cupcakes at City Winery
June 18, 2011
1pm doors | 2pm taping tickets:http://wwww.citywinery.com/events/177181
“Old fashioned radio is making a comeback in Greenwich Village!” - WCBS NewsRadio
“On occasion, you stumble upon something special and unique. This happened to me this past Saturday. I attendedRadio Happy Hour.” -Music Taster’s Choice
“I’m so hungover.” – author, Geoff Herbach
“Scallywags, the lot of ye.” -author, Arthur Phillips
“weird” – Norah Jones
Radio Happy Hour, a live variety show featuring a made-for-radio murder mystery sitcom, is kicking off the summer season with their first ever live taping at City Winery. The episode will feature two musical guests with both Sun Airway and rising indie-darlings Hank & Cupcakes. There will be murder. There will be music. And everyone will go home regretting something they’ve done. These bands, and another guest yet to be announced, will join Radio Happy Hour host Sam Osterhout, RHH regulars Robin Reed and Matt Skibiak, as well as RHH’s own Jim Ed Poole, Rich Bologna.
With the start of a new season it’s a perfect time to catch up on (or discover) past episodes of Radio Happy Hour through their podcast, such as the most recent episode, “The Tax Murderer,” featuring musical guest Franz Nicolay and comedian Arden Myrin. Or maybe it’s a good time to realize that you should never miss a show because you never know what’s going to happen. Cloud Cult could show up as a surprise guest in the middle of an episode featuring Norah Jones and comedian Gabe Liedman. Or 2009 Air Guitar World Champion William Ocean might leap on stage in the middle of a performance by The Postelles to wail on his air guitar. You just never know. And that is why you should never miss a live taping of Radio Happy Hour. (READ MORE.)
Join Jad for a night of electrifying music and fascinating conversation on June 18th at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York.

Tickets are on sale now, and you get $5 off with the code “radiolab.”
