Given the massive interest in The Beatles Get Back, which offers a decidedly refreshed take on Fab’s much-maligned “documentary” Let It Be (1970) – several notable downtown artists converge for a remake / remodel local incorporating the musical genres that New York City is renowned for its crossover of rock, folk, jazz, experimental, funk, urban country and their permutations!
Covering Ornette Coleman, Velvet Underground, New York Dolls, Television, Patti smith, Talking Heads, The Strokes and Lady Gaga, to name a few, New York’s “fringe” artists have forged an indelible mark on American pop culture …
As such, downtown comes to town with artists Emily Duff, Joey Kelly Allstars, Arno hecht (Upscale horns, Rolling Stones, J. Geils Band), Chris Parker (Bob dylan, Thing, Miles davis, Aretha franklin, Jon secada), Peter Baron, Spaghetti Eastern Music (aka Sal Cataldi with Bettina Cataldi), Ben Neill, Lorraine Leckie, Anne Husick (Joey Ramone, Ronnie spector), Puma Perl, Mark Bosch (Ian Hunter, Mott The Hoople ’74, Garland Jeffreys) Kathena Bryant, Chris Berardo and The DesBerados, as well as bassists David C. Gross, Tom Semioli … and a few surprise guests.
Publisher Nicholas Callaway will kick off the evening by discussing The Beatles: Get Back (Callaway Arts & Entertainment), which is the official debut on their latest album, Let It Be, narrated in The Beatles’ own words, illustrated with hundreds of never-before-seen images, including photos of Ethan A. Russell and Linda McCartney.
