@RayRaySaadiq x @KCRW #WhoShotRocknRoll Concert

The last in the series of KCRW’s “Who Shot Rock n Roll” concerts featured Raphael Saadiq and Band of Skulls celebrating songs from “Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan”.  Although it was a short performance by one of my favorite artist, I was able to snap a few pictures and get some footage of the evenings adventure with Raphael and his band. We didn’t stay for Band of Skulls but it was still a great evening. The people were all in sync with one another, the weather was perfect, and the location was appropriately thought-out…Enjoy.

If you get a chance, make sure to check out the actual exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography

Tried to upload a few videos for you to see the dance battle between Saadiq and his band members as well as Charles taking us to CHURCH…I have to UP grade to do that, so until then hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Alvin Ailey

This is a wonderful thing! I am all for the arts especially for the youth (seeing that they are being striped away, scaled down, and almost non-existed at the schools). I was at my daughter’s school the other day I got really excited when I saw the poster for this.

Alvin Ailey is holding auditions for their 2011 Junior Division Summer Intensive Program (click here for audition dates in your area). It’s a 5 week program from June 27-July 29 2011, for dancers with at least 3 years of consistent training, ages 12-15. For more information click here. Also, while you’re on their beautiful web-site (the images are breathtaking) check out the dates for their North American Tour and the historic “Our Story” time-line; Mr. Ailey set the bar (no pun intended) pretty high! Gotta love it!!!
