Here are a few additions to my previous post:

On Tuesday the lovely ladies of Medicine Woman will be playing at Spike Hill. Their unique version of rhythm and blues is augmented by a talented friend of mine from NYU who plays a mean fiddle.

They will also be playing at the aforementioned benefit for Clearwater on Thursday.

On Wednesday my friend B (aka DJ Brian Blackout) will be spinning at Hugs with Eugene Tambourine. It’s going to be fantastic and Hugs has an awesome dance floor so please make your way out to Williamsburg and rock out this Wednesday (trust me it will make the week go by faster).

Finally, I’d like to add an ongoing event that my friend Anindita tells me is well worth checking out- The Hank Willis Thomas exhibit showing until March 14th at the Jack Shainman Gallery in Chelsea.

Much of the work focuses on the use of African American male body in advertisements. I am interested in the connection between this body type and the cotton and slave trade industries that brought this country so much wealth.
