Pigeons Playing Ping Pong To Play Valentine’s Songs Of Love Foundation Benefit

first_imgBaltimore-based jam-funk group Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will perform at The Cutting Room in New York City on the day after Valentine’s Day, February 15th, as part of The Songs of Love Foundation‘s 9th annual Songs Of Love benefit show.The Songs Of Love Foundation is a national nonprofit that gives the gift of free, personalized, and originally-written songs to children and teens undergoing difficult medical treatment or facing physical or emotional challenges. Since its inception in 1996, Songs of Love has been driven by the notion that because so many resources are dedicated to finding cures for illnesses, the immediate emotional needs of sick kids may go overlooked. In their 20+ years of operation, The Songs Of Love Foundation has reached out to over 28,000 children, offering them professionally-produced CDs with lyrics containing the kids’ names and references to their lives at home.With proceeds from the Pigeons Playing Ping Pong show benefiting the Songs Of Love Foundation directly, the concert is a great way to show support for an important organization while also getting to get down to one of the fastest-rising acts in the jam scene. This is also a rare chance to catch Pigeons Playing Ping Pong in such a small venue. Their last performance at The Cutting Room was the first night of a three-night, three city Halloween run in 2015, when they delivered a “Dead Zeppelin”-themed performance (featuring their own songs mixed in with selections from both Led Zeppelin and The Grateful Dead‘s catalogues. Since then, the band has played increasingly large venues in the New York market, including Gramercy Theatre, Brooklyn Bowl, Irving Plaza, Brooklyn Steel, and more.Tickets for the intimate, 300-person show are currently on sale and available here.For more information about The Songs of Love Foundation, visit the organization’s website.[Photo: Ojeda Photography]last_img read more

Olivia Petzy Will Step into How to Be a New Yorker Off-Broadway

first_img Written by Copeland and Doyle and directed by Robert Ross Parker, How to Be a New Yorker teaches audience members everything they need to know about what it takes to be a bona fide citizen of the Big Apple. From the instinct for disdainful glances to the peevish muttering and innate rudeness that distinguish true New Yorkers, the comedy show covers it all. How to Be a New Yorker originally premiered at Sofia’s Downstairs Theater off-Broadway. Petzy studied improv and musical improv at Upright Citizens Brigade and Magnet Theater, where she regularly performs as a member of the teams Vulcan and The Sing Kids. Olivia Petzy will join the cast of How to Be a New Yorker beginning August 8. She steps in for Margaret Copeland, who, following the post-show announcement of her engagement on April 11, will play her final performance in the long-running off-Broadway comedy on August 2. Petzy will star opposite Kevin James Doyle at Planet Hollywood’s Screening Room Theater.

Isobel Pravda Steps Into The Good and the True Off-Broadway

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 14, 2014 Following previously reported visa delays, Isobel Pravda has arrived in New York and is now starring in the American premiere of The Good and the True. The Daniel Hrbek-helmed production officially opened on August 3 at off-Broadway’s DR2 Theatre and also stars Saul Reichlin. Pravda replaces Hannah D. Scott. The Good and The True Related Shows Pravda is the real granddaughter of Hana Pravda; she played her grandmother for the first time on stage last year in the UK. The show will play a limited engagement through September 14. View Comments Written by Daniel and Tomas Hrbek and Lucie Kolouchova, and adapted as an English language version by Brian Daniels, the play intertwines the true testimonies of two extraordinary people—Czech athlete Milos Dobry and actress Hana Pravda. They both spent their working lives building suspense, knocking crowds into submission and drawing gasps and acclaim from spectators—but this pales in significance compared to their earlier lives enduring the indignities of incarceration and survival at the hands of occupied Czechoslovakia in the 1930s.last_img read more

A record 6.6 million seek US jobless aid as layoffs mount

first_img(AP) — More than 6.6 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, far exceeding a record high set just last week, a sign that layoffs are accelerating in the midst of the coronavirus. Last week’s figure is much higher than the previous record of 3.3 million reported for the previous week. The surging layoffs have led many economists to envision as many as 20 million lost jobs by the end of April. The job cuts are mounting against the backdrop of economies in the United States and abroad that have almost certainly sunk into a severe recession as businesses close across the world.last_img read more

Qatar denies Gulf bloc exit rumors

first_imgTopics : Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, along with non-GCC member Egypt, abruptly cut diplomatic, economic and travel ties with Doha in June 2017 over their insistence that Qatar was too close to Iran and backing radical Islamist movements.Qatar fiercely rejected the charge and refused to budge on any of the 13 demands made by its allies-turned-adversaries. They include the closure of the Doha-based Al Jazeera news network and shutting a Turkish base.The dispute will enter its third year on June 5.”Qataris are asking themselves what benefit a membership in the GCC still has, as the organization has been usurped by Saudi Arabia and the UAE to coerce the smaller states into followership, while no initiative is being made to bring the Gulf Crisis to an end,” said King’s College assistant professor Andreas Krieg.Oman and Kuwait are the other two members of the body, which oversees regional economic and military coordination, along with Qatar and its regional rivals. Qatar denied on Thursday that it plans to quit the Gulf Cooperation Council as it prepares to mark three years of isolation led by the regional bloc’s heavyweight Saudi Arabia.However, the gas-rich state cautioned that the effort by three of the GCC’s six members to isolate Doha economically and politically meant people in the region were “doubting and questioning” the organization.Rumors of Qatar’s imminent departure from the GCC, founded in 1981 and headquartered in Riyadh, have been swirling in Gulf capitals in recent weeks, with analysts and diplomats flagging it as a possibility.center_img “Reports claiming that Qatar is considering leaving the GCC are wholly incorrect and baseless,” Qatar’s assistant foreign minister Lolwah al-Khater told AFP. “Such rumors must have originated from people’s despair and disappointment with a fractured GCC, which used to be a source of hope and aspiration for the people of the six member countries,” she said.”As we are reaching the third year of the illegal blockade on Qatar by Saudi, UAE and Bahrain, there is no wonder why the people of the GCC are doubting and questioning the GCC as an institution.”Qatar hopes the GCC will once again be a platform of cooperation and coordination. An effective GCC is needed now more than ever, given the challenges facing our region.”last_img read more

New Zealand PM delays election after virus return

first_imgPrime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday delayed New Zealand’s looming election by four weeks to Oct. 17 after a renewed coronavirus outbreak hampered campaigning.Ardern was under pressure from political opponents and her coalition partners to shift the original Sept. 19 vote following the shock discovery of COVID-19 in Auckland last week, sending the country’s largest city into lockdown.She said the return of the virus after 102 days without community transmission had rattled Kiwis and could have discouraged some from casting ballots in a September election. The center-left leader, who is riding high in opinion polls, also acknowledged concerns from rivals that curbs on campaigning would unfairly weigh the election in favour of her government.After spending the weekend consulting party leaders and the Electoral Commission, she chose October 17, the earliest delayed date available to her.Ardern said the change meant all parties would be campaigning under the same conditions and she would not move the election’s timing again regardless of the situation.”I have absolutely no intention at all to change from this point,” she said. “This decision gives all parties time over the next nine weeks to campaign and the Electoral Commission enough time to ensure an election can go ahead.”All parties temporarily suspended campaigning in the wake of last week’s outbreak, the source of which remains unknown.The virus was first detected in four family members in Auckland early last week and by Monday the cluster had grown to 58 confirmed cases, with five people in hospital.’Common sense’ The South Pacific nation is following the same strategy that helped contain coronavirus during a seven-week lockdown earlier this year — isolating positive cases, contact tracing and extensive testing.The earlier success has helped lift Ardern’s personal popularity rating to a record 60 percent, along with her leadership during last year’s Christchurch mosque attacks and the White Island volcano eruption. Ardern’s Labour Party is on track to win office in its own right, without the minor party coalition partners — the Greens and New Zealand First (NZF) — it needed during its first term.The main opposition National Party last week demanded the election be postponed until late November, or preferably next year, saying September 19 was untenable.Ardern’s coalition partner NZF backed the delay Monday after earlier saying the September option had been “fatally compromised” by the outbreak. “Common sense has prevailed,” said NZF leader and Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, whose populist party faces an election wipeout on current polling.Labour’s other coalition partner, the Greens, said the four-week delay should give health authorities time to contain the Auckland cluster.But co-leader James Shaw accused some parties of displaying “naked political self-interest” in demanding a delay, saying they hoped the pandemic’s economic impact would dent the government’s popularity in the meantime.”We have been incredibly disappointed to see the National and other small parties continue to use the weekend to bang on about what would suit them best politically,” he said.The virus is a strain not previously seen in New Zealand and national health director-general Ashley Bloomfield said tests to check if it was imported via freight sent to an Auckland coolroom facility were still being processed.But he assured the public there was no risk in purchasing frozen goods from the supermarket.”There’s no evidence of transmission by food or food packaging to date,” he said, adding that some form of human-to-human infection was still considered the most likely source of the outbreak.Topics :last_img read more
