    KATE WILLETT (comedian): Kate Willett is a comedian, actress, and writer whose raunchy feminist storytelling is both smart and relatable. Her 15 minute special premiered on Netflix’s “Comedy Lineup” in August 2018. She was recently a correspondent for the JIM JEFFERIES SHOW at Politicon 2017. She’s been featured on Viceland’s FLOPHOUSE and her appearance on Comedy Central’s THIS IS NOT HAPPENING was on Splitsider’s list of “2016’s Best Late Night Standup Sets.” In the past, she toured with Margaret Cho nationally and internationally and has featured with comedians like Kyle Kinane, Jen Kirkman, Ali Wong, Dana Gould, and Greg Behrendt.
    She has appeared in the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, High Plains, Big Sky Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest (5 years in a row), and most recently Laughing Skull. Earlier this year she was a “Comic to Watch” at the LA RIOT festival.
    LENNY ZENITH (musician): Lenny Zenith's first album under his own name What If The Sun was released in the summer of 2018. The pioneering transgender writer and rock musician has been releasing music for decades with bands like Jenifer Convertible, Tenterhooks, Minor Planets, and RZA (he had the name first, by the way). He's worked with producers like James Murphy (pre-LCD Soundsystem!) and Wharton Tiers (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.). He’s opened for legends including U2, Iggy Pop, The Replacements and X, to name just a few.
    Perhaps Lenny’s greatest success came when he headed to New York City. There he formed Jenifer Convertible, a '90s noise pop outfit that worked with James Murphy on the "Car Song"/"Co-Dependency" 7” single and Elk City member Ray Ketchem on "Speedracer"/"Rewind". After a few stops and starts, Zenith booked time at Ketchem's new Magic Door Recording in Montclair, New Jersey where he finished What If The Sun which received wide acclaim and continues garnering respectable sales.
    Of course, the music also takes influence from the entirety of Zenith's storied life. This is a musician coming of age late of age, embracing all aspects of his dynamic life for an effort that is wholly, fearlessly Lenny Zenith.

  • Person Place Thing and 500 Women Scientists

    Weds, June 5, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
    A New Series: Person Place Thing and 500 Women Scientists
    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/500-women-scientists-person-place-thing-series-tickets-60267031313
    Why can’t a person go to a bar and hear less about the White House and more about galactic dynmics, magma flow, or Staphylococcus aureus? Problem solved. In the first half of 2019, we’ll present three evenings with women scientists doing fascinating research – astrophysicist Sarah Pearson, volcanologist Einat Lev, and microbiologist Davida Smith, in conversation with Randy Cohen, host of Person Place Thing. Science and liquor: natural companions. Plus live music? All the better.
    Randy Cohen’s first professional work was writing humor pieces, essays, and stories for newspapers and magazines (The New Yorker, Harpers, the Atlantic, Young Love Comics). His first television work was writing for "Late Night With David Letterman" for which he won three Emmy awards. His fourth Emmy was for his work on Michael Moore’s "TV Nation." He received a fifth Emmy as a result of a clerical error, and he kept it. For twelve years he wrote "The Ethicist," a weekly column for the New York Times Magazine. In 2010, his first play, “The Punishing Blow,” ran at New York’s Clurman Theater. His most recent book, "Be Good: how to navigate the ethics of everything," was published by Chronicle. He is currently the creator and host of Person Place Thing, a public radio program.
    Person Place Thing is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result: surprising stories from great talkers. We do the show in front of an audience, with live music, and then edit a version for broadcast across WAMC Northeast Public Radio. You can stream our archive at PersonPlaceThing.org or download episodes via iTunes.

    Fri, September 13, 9:30pm
    Simona Minns: 'My Urban Spells"
    Simona Minns is a Lithuanian born jazz vocalist, composer and zitherist based in New York City. She is regularly performing locally in New York jazz venues with her quartet, as well as touring in different parts of the world, such as Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Simona's style is known for its unique theatrical flavor, genre-bending, and virtuosic vocal scat improvisation. 'My Urban Spells' is a musical controversy between tribal roots, zither sounds, and chants incorporated into urban musical styles such as jazz and rock.
    Her latest album, “A Hunger Artist," blends haunting vocals with elements of Lithuanian folk, jazz and even musical theater to convey the narrative of Franz Kafka's short story by the same title.
    Classically trained on Lithuanian zither, Simona earned her BA in jazz vocals at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater. Shortly after receiving the European Touring Scholarship, she moved to the United States to study at Berklee College of Music where she majored in Contemporary Composition and Production.
