Summer Yin Rejuvenation Workshop
Hartford Sweat – SUMMER YIN YOGA WORKSHOP WITH Rachel Allen! In traditional Chinese medicine, summer is the season of yang, a time of great internal fire. The organ associated with this heat is the heart. The heart's radiance spreads out to every cell and expresses itself in our creativity, interactions and capacity for communication. The summer season is a time to build this energy, stoking the fire that will carry us through the warmer months and into the changing of the seasons. During this workshop, Rachel will move us through a series of Yin poses designed to activate the meridians associated with the heart and small intensities. This time is an opportunity to heighten our connection with these areas and increase energy flow to help stoke our internal fire and keep us healthy and vibrant all summer long. $25 Admission. Space is limited, pre-registration required. Open to all levels of experience.

New Zenith Theatre Presents: The Shape of a Girl
Mattatuck Museum – Written by Joan MacLeod Directed by Ed Wierzbicki Fifteen-year-old Braidie knows that bullying is wrong, but her best friend persists in picking on Sophie, an innocent, awkward girl who just wants to belong. Can Braidie break free of the mean girls that were once childhood friends and stand up for what’s right? The Shape of a Girl is a dynamic, one-woman play that examines the frightening realities of teenage relationships, aggression and a young woman’s battle with inaction. As told through a series of conversations, memories, and events in Braidie’s world, award-winning Canadian playwright Joan MacLeod has created a fascinating insider’s view of a teenager struggling at home and in school. Ultimately, Braidie must decide whether there is such a thing as an innocent bystander and whether the penalty of speaking up will be too high a personal cost. Performance runs approximately 75 minutes. Limited seating available.

The Sunday Buzz Matinee w/ Porter Block
cafe nine – Porter Block at Cafe Nine Porter Block is a duo who make music that’s melodic, hooky as hell, smart, well-crafted, sometimes sad, always thoughtful; in a nutshell, what many would call “power pop.” Songs that are built to last. Said keyboardist Larry Goldings (James Taylor, John Mayer, John Legend) of a recent Porter Block session: “They brought back a sensibility that one associates with the greatest of the 70s writers.” Formed in 2005 by the New York-based Peter Block and Caleb Sherman, Peter explains the group’s underlying ideology: “It always comes down to being honest about the writing. If one can’t sit down and play and sing the song simply, then it’s not ready to be recorded.” Regarding his colleague, Peter is effusive, “I actually met Caleb about 15 years ago. I really can’t think of another musician who naturally absorbs and produces music with such ease. He can play just about any instrument you can name. His production sensibility was really an old-school approach. He understood very well that I wanted to make human-sounding records, so we just clicked.” To date, Porter Block has made one EP and six studio albums. Frequently augmented by a revolving cast of crack players, 2010’s Peter Block release notably featured cowrites with Mike Viola (who also produced), Tracy Bonham, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Slow Runner’s Michael Flynn, and They Might Be Giants’ Dan Miller. As noted by the Daily News in Pittsburgh: “Power pop doesn't get much better than this, folks.” Prior to the release of Peter Block, Peter and Caleb were on the road with Mike Doughty, The Samples, Deep Blue Something, and the aforementioned Viola. 2016’s Hard To See Beautiful was recorded digitally in Nashville (where Caleb has relocated) and analog in Los Angeles, by Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Warpaint, Joseph Arthur) and return collaborator Mike Viola (Ryan Adams, Rachael Yamagata, Matt Nathanson). Using the two formats allowed for maximum flexibility in capturing the sound and feel the group was after. Guitars were handled by Peter, Caleb, Mike, Steven Elliot (Dawes, Norah Jones) and Terry Radigan; the keys were split between Peter, Caleb and the aforementioned Larry Goldings. Drum chores were shared by Brandon Barnes and longtime Elvis Costello compadre, Pete Thomas. Bass came courtesy of Caleb and another Costello bandmate, Davey Faragher. Summer 2017 is set to bring forth a lot of firsts for Peter and Caleb. July 14th will bring the release of Primer, the band’s first-ever compilation, not only featuring 12 handpicked songs from the Porter Block catalog, plus two previously-unreleased recordings, “Always Right” and “So Mean.” Touring in support of Primer — the group’s first dates since 2016’s live shows alongside Lucy Woodward and Tim Easton — begins on July 20th in Westbury, New York. The duo are also currently hard at work launching In A State, an innovative podcast which will feature exclusive conversations with prominent musicians and top entertainment industry veterans. In A State is also in discussions to present live events, as tied in with the non-profit Music and Medicine program at Weill Cornell Medical College, which Peter co-founded. Tour dates and other information on Porter Block can be found at www.teammensch.com.
