Brantley Gilbert / Tyler Farr / Luke Combs
Jones Beach – With Brantley Gilbert’s Devil Don’t Sleep Tour crossing the Rust Belt and heartland, the renegade country star turns to warmer weather & a summer stop at Jones Beach on July 27. Tix: http://tickets.jonesbeach.com/results-ticket?evtid=3068562 “These shows in the arenas are so loud and so wild,” says the songwriter whose penned six #1s, including the CMA Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem,” of the road. “You almost can’t hold that energy in the building, but come summer – when we take it outside – it’s a whole other kind of deal when we get outside with the BG Nation.” The 26-date summer leg of the Devil Don’t Sleep Tour is a mixture of festivals, fairs and amphitheaters, mixing up the concert experience for the fans. “There are so many different ways to do this come warm weather,” Gilbert explains. “And I like’em all. Festivals are just a party with a whole lotta music… There’s not much realer – or more like where I come from – than a fair… and those amphitheater shows, well, that’s where the BG Nation comes together to throw it down. You know, it’s why when we take it outside, it’s just good, and we have the party of the summer everywhere we go.” This year’s show – with new music from his #1 all-genre Top 200 Selling Albums The Devil Don’t Sleep – has been striking a chord with his already passionate fanbase. The Reading Eagle wrote of opening night, “far from an outlier; Gilbert stuck his microphone out for audience participation in nearly every song, and they were happy to oblige. This wasn’t music for thinking, it was music for escaping” and touring industry trade Pollstar echoed, “on a brief instrumental honky tonk interlude that allowed the five musicians backing Gilbert to show off their chops, the music was heavily country. But for much of the the show, it was an amalgam of styles Gilbert grew up listening to, incorporating crunchy guitars, drum machines, even some rapped verses.” Quietly selling back-to-back platinum with Halfway To Heaven and Just As I Am, Jefferson, Georgia’s Brantley Gilbert is a different kind of heavy metal force reckon with: a songwriter who taps into the gut of the outlier, the roughneck, the downhome and the downtrodden by rocking his country hard and writing songs torn straight from their lives. A word-of-mouth favorite, his tours focus on the Rust Belt, the Heartland and the Southeast working class, connecting with those music lovers who don’t really care what you call it, just that you bring it every time. Last winter’s successful BlackOut arena tour and summer’s Take It Outside tour, climaxing in two sold-out in-advance shows at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater proved Gilbert a live force to be reckoned with. Devil Don’t Sleep Tour solidifies his reputation as one of America’s hardest-hitting country hybids. As winter leg continues rocking hard, get ready for the summer leg – featuring Tyler Farr and Luke Combs – to be coming where the people work hard and their music is part of how they do it.

Rachel Farmer: Ancestors Traversing Quilts
Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art – Please join us ?Thursday, July 27th from 6-8PM? for the opening reception of Rachel Farmer's instalation, ANCESTORS TRAVERSING QUILTS. During the reception our Director, Gonzalo Casals will give an informal talk about Farmer's work and process before giving the stage to Farmer to answer any questions. We hope you can attend! “My work draws inspiration from a variety of sources: my Mormon pioneer ancestry, childhood play with ceramic figurines, my grandmother’s quilts, historical dioramas, and pop culture’s invented mythologies of the American West. This installation grew out of pouring over my great-great-grandfather’s diary chronicling his immigrant journey from England to Utah Territory in 1853­­­—while confronting the absence of information about my great-great-grandmother who made the same journey, as a single woman without family, in 1855. I would like to acknowledge that these quilts were made possible by the communal efforts of many. In gratitude.” -Rachel Farmer Image: Rachel Farmer, Ancestors Traversing Quilts, 2017. Site-specific installation including ceramic, fabric, batting, and yarn. 77 x 258 x 20 in. Courtesy the artist. Photograph (c) Riya Lerner.

Summer Thursdays: Jojo Abot
MoMA The Museum of Modern Art – The Ghanaian artist Jojo Abot calls her signature sound “Afro-Hypno-Sonic”: an experimental blend of electronica, Afro-beat, jazz, neo-soul, house, and reggae, among others. She investigates new forms of spirituality and expression as part of a growing global conversation around shared space and shared identity, beyond biases of color, race, class, and sexual orientation. Her 2015 debut EP, Fyfya Woto, tells a story in song, a diary of a woman’s right to choose how to live; the narrative emerges from the generational ties that bind the women in the protagonist’s family together. Earlier this year, Abot opened for two of Lauryn Hill’s tours, culminating in a show at Radio City Music Hall. Abot has also performed at iconic venues such as the Apollo Theater, the Kings Theater in Brooklyn, and the Kennedy Center. She is a participant in New Inc., the New Museum’s “incubator” program for the professional development of those working in experimental art, design, and technology. She continues to develop new ways to connect, not only in music, but also through film, photography, literature, and performance art. ... ? Set begins at 6:30 p.m. ? Free with Museum admission. ? Performances take place in the Sculpture Garden. In the event of rain, the Garden will close, and music will take place in Theater 1. ? Please note: Sculpture Garden and indoor seating are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. ... Organized in collaboration with PopRally and on the occasion of the digital exhibition "Crossing Borders: Immigration and American Culture," the musical component of Summer Thursdays 2017 is presented in conjunction with "Citizens and Borders," a series of projects at MoMA related to works in the collection that offer critical perspectives on histories of migration, territory, and displacement. ... The Garden Bar offers drinks and snacks at the northeast corner of the Sculpture Garden. The menu of homemade snacks includes specialty hot dogs, soft pretzels, and baguette sandwiches, along with a selection of wines, craft-beers, and cocktails. In the event of rain, bar will be closed. The new Espresso bar on Floor 2 will serve also serve wine. ... [Jojo Abot. Photo: Jojo Abot]
