    SAMANTHA NYE (artist):
    Samantha Nye is a painter and video artist currently living in Manhattan. For the first decade of her life she was a relatively unsuccessful child model. She learned early about performance and identity, which has directed her studio practice towards the investigation of seduction through reenactment. Her paintings, videos and installations highlight aging bodies, celebrate queer kinship, and facilitate an intergenerational dialogue about sexuality between queer women and their mothers/grandmothers. Samantha was a fellow of the 2014-2015 Queer/Art Mentorship, a 2018 Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Traveling Scholar and has exhibited with The Yossi Milo Gallery, The Wallach Gallery and The Leslie-Lohman Museum Project Space.
    JEMIMA WILLIAMS (illustrator and writer):
    Jemima Williams is a British illustrator and writer who worked for nearly a decade on the BAFTA Award–winning animated show Peppa Pig. She illustrated the children's book Hibernate With Me (Simon & Schuster Kids), Andy Nyman’s The Golden Rules of Acting (Nick Hern Books), and was a frequent contributor of illustrations and writing to the online women’s magazine Standard Issue. Jemima lives in New York City with her husband Benjamin Scheuer, their daughter Elodie, and their dog Porthos.
    BENJAMIN SCHEUER (songwriter, performer, playwright):
    Benjamin Scheuer is an American songwriter, performer and playwright. He is the author of the children’s-book “Hibernate With Me,” based on his song of the same name. The book, illustrated by Scheuer’s wife, Jemima Williams, was published February 2019 by Simon & Schuster Kids. The song, produced by Grammy Award winner Ian Fitchuk (Kacey Musgraves) was released along with a lyric-video. (Atlantic Records) Scheuer won a Drama Desk Award for his solo show THE LION, which premiered off-Broadway in 2014, where it was called “the best new musical this year” (Huffington Post). The show toured the US and Europe, and the LA Times wrote “the vibe of casual, unrehearsed immediacy masks the narrative complexity of a novel or an opera.” Scheuer’s album “Songs from THE LION,” produced by Geoff Kraly, was released alongside four music videos, which won awards including Best Music Video at the 2014 British Animation Awards, (at which Scheuer met Jemima Williams!) Scheuer and Williams live in New York City with their daughter and their labradoodle.

    A New Series: Person Place Thing and 500 Women Scientists
    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/500-women-scientists-person-place-thing-series-tickets-56357434604
    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.
  • New York Writers Workshop

    Thurs, April 4, 6:30pm
    No cover. 2 drink minimum.
    For Thursday, April 4, we have Matwaala: South Asian Diaspora Poets' Collective, featuring Usha Akella, Pramila Venkateswaran, Ravi Shankar, Yuyutsu Sharma, and others. The name Matwaala evokes bonding and bonhomie, fun and funk, creative adventure and freedom, artistic assertiveness and non-conformity. A Hindi/Urdu word, it was the name of a radical literary magazine edited by the poet Nirala from Kolkata a century ago. Matwaala is used for someone who is drunk, but the word is used more often in a transferred sense, for someone who is a free spirit. Concerned about the visibility of South Asian poets in the American poetry scene, university reading series, and representation in anthologies and syllabi, we were inspired to initiate a collective. Though the core mission may be perceived as idealistic or even somber, Matwaala, materialized in a weirdly magical way in Austin. The idea of a poetry festival emerged after an editorial project we co-edited for www.museindia.com. The issue focused on a project involving Diaspora artists and poets that generated the idea for sustained collaboration and initiatives. A festival was its magnification, and appeared, erected on a shoestring budget propelled by enthusiasm and faith in 2015. The first festival/collective drew to its fold a group of poets, Saleem Peeradina, Pramila Venkateswaran, Ravi Shankar, Sasha Parmasad and Varsha Saraiya Shah. Joie de vivre, friendship and a sense of community have become the hallmark of the festival that seeks to establish a paradigm based not on hierarchies but on solidarity, offering readings by established and emerging poets, youth forums, papers and panel discussions. In 2019 Matwaala launched its website, branding, and e-anthology, hosted readings in NYU, Hunter College and NCC. It received sponsorship from Poets & Writers and hosted South Asian diaspora poets from the UK.

    Mon, April 8, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
    Join us at the KGB Bar Red Room as Michael Washburn and Amanda Petrusich discuss Southern Accents, one of the newest additions to the long-running 33 1/3 music series.
    Southern Accents explores the ways in which Tom Petty’s record of the same name was a fascinating artistic failure that unexpectedly mired Petty in debates about American culture and history. The book also explores white Southern identity, its connection to race, and enduring but flawed assumptions about the Lost Cause of the Confederacy and Southern Culture, issues that are of particular importance in today’s political environment.
    Michael Washburn is Director of Programs at Humanities New York and the author of Southern Accents. His writing has appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The New Republic, The Boston Globe, and many other publications.
    Amanda Petrusich is a staff writer for The New Yorker and the author of several books, including the 33 1/3 on Nick Drake's Pink Moon and Do Not Sell At Any Price: The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for the World's Rarest 78rpm Records.

    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.
