This is a cassette tape released by Cool World LA of live recordings from my two year residency at Cafe Dancer. Special Guests include: Rumi Missabu, Yva Las Vegass, Jarvis Earnshaw, Potpourri of Pearls, and Jessie Gold. Write me to get one!
And lastly, here I am performing Stravinsky's Firebird at a recent benefit, organized by Lillian Ball, for the Lumbini Crane Sanctuary located in Nepal, for guests and speaker, the Venerable Mettayya. (Yes, that is a Sol LeWitt behind me)
Performing "Who Do You Think You Are?" with Gorgeus Nicholas Gorham at The Slipper Room in the Lower East Side. He and Eric Schmalenberger host a monthly show there called FOR THE RECORD in which they pay homage to age-defining albums.
That night's show was dedicated to the Album: SPICE
Since it was the Holidays, LALA and I slayed some medieval jams.
Our screening premiere of Paradox Vested Relics T-Square video, featuring Rios O'Leary-Tagiuri, was a success! The video was set to one of my songs, Honey Please, so here I am performing with it as a live score. Paolo, the fashion designer and Rios were both present for the evening and I'm falling in love! You can see the T-Square video at the PVR website: pvr-nyc.com
And here's a splash of photos taken by Rebecca Curry at A Very Spooky Fish-Mas Party, hosted by the marvelous Felix and the Future. It featured performers Lady Simon, Lady Quesadilla, DJ Lorant, Violet Elixir and more as well as a beautiful, intergalactic set by Felix! and also there was a Mermaid. -Man! Mer Man. a mermen.

These photos are a little blurry, but I wanted to show them anyway. This is me, and Adam, from Potpourri of Pearls, with a sweet friend who brought us flowers for our performance at last month's Ghost Light at Cafe Dancer. Thanks, everyone for coming out and making it such a special night!
Earlier this September, I was invited to perform some rare violin scores by Ezra Pound at Book/Shop on Bond Street in Manhattan. Pound had written the music for a violinist that he was in love with named Olga. To play the songs, Christo Wood, a Violin Maker, lent me an instrument he had made. It came from a one hundred year old tree that had fallen during Hurricane Sandy.
This is Christo, in his violin workshop in Midtown.
Comedian, Max Bernstein, was my guest artist at last August's Ghost Light. He runs a comedy show called Apocalypse Wow and it's happening on Monday, October 6 at 8:30 pm at Cameo Gallery. I'd never had anyone come in and do a stand-up routine and we weren't exactly sure what viola + jokes would =. Before I introduced him to the audience I played my song Honey Please and he got up and told everyone that he always loved starting his comedy act with a break-up song. Later he told a Spainish Love story/tragedy/adventure and I accompanied him with some romance music and excitement music. Another Highlight was the part when he wouldn't let anyone get past him to use the bathroom. He told me that I really have to learn how to take control of my audience. When he finally let people pass, about a dozen of them zipped by him and he told them that there wasn't a clown car parked in the bathroom.

Tenor Saxophone player, Jason Phillips, has been joining me on songs. Last month we performed a set to celebrate the book launch of Laura Raicovich's new novel, A Diary of Mysterious Difficulties, in the haunted apartment above Creative Time.
And here's some pictures of Wolfgang and I in the dressing room before a show at BAM. He is part of Discoteca Flaming Star (you can see Christina in the mirror). They invited me to sing with them, a song called, The Port of Amsterdam (in German). We shared chatter and that dressing room with the legendary, Needles Jones.
