Cabaret Artists Brad Connor and Ben Sears - “Gershwin, with Love”

Noted Boston-area cabaret artists Brad Connor and Ben Sears will invoke the glamour of the Jazz Age in “Gershwin, with Love” featuring the music of George and Ira Gershwin and their contemporaries. 

“Gershwin, with Love” will offer entertainment with a background of solid historical research. Sears’ and Connor’s reputations as Gershwin performers recently led to the inclusion of their recordings in the interactive kiosk at the George & Ira Gershwin Room of the Library of Congress.

James Wolcott & Adam Zahler

Sunday, February 12, 2012 - 9:00pm

Tonight we welcome back writer, critic and long-time columnist and blogger for Vanity Fair JAMES WOLCOTT who continues his conversation about his book LUCKING OUT: MY LIFE GETTING DOWN AND DIRTY IN SEVENTIES NEW YORK. Tonight, James Wolcott discusses how long it took for him to be considered an established New York critic, the proliferation and mainstreaming of porn during that decade and finally his discovery and deep love of ballet.

Whitehorse (featuring Melissa McClelland & Luke Doucet)

Six Shooter Records' Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet tie the musical knot with the debut of their new band, Whitehorse, marrying their talent and chemistry on stage as an undeniably smoldering duo. Individually, they have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards and the Polaris Prize. Gutsy and resolute in their pursuits of sound and substance, Luke and Melissa's fusion of the personal and professional brings to mind the road-tested romance of Johnny and June.
