Hot Tickets: New York

Every Friday at noon, EST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the New York area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT! Friday, December 2 I African Diaspora International Film Festival  Established in 1993, the African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) is an international film festival which offers a unique, quality cinematic experience that places at its center the humanity of people of color all over the world. Through its rich and diverse programming, ADIFF offers an alternative world view to that typically offered by other international film festivals. Tonight they feature two films that should be of interest to all lovers of reggae music, Jamaican culture and Rastafarianism. At 5:25pm they’ll be screening The First Rasta about Leonard Percival Howell, the man who founded Pinncacle, the first Rasta community, after travelling the world as a sailor in the early part of the 20th century. Then at 9:40pm they’ll be screening The Story of Lovers Rock which tells the tale of Lovers Rock (often dubbed “romantic reggae”), a uniquely black British sound that developed in the late 70s and 80s against a backdrop of riots, racial tension and sound systems. Live performance, comedy sketches, dance, interviews and archival footage shed light on the music and the generation that embraced it. Both films will also be screened on Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4 at the Quad Cinema. Read the rest of this entry »

Aztec Two-Step’s debut album was named one of the top five classic folk albums by Real Simple magazine in ’07, joining work by Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Tom Rush and Phil Ochs; also “…surpassing Simon and Garfunkel for exquisite harmonies, musicianship and emotion.” Their music was a staple of progressive FM and college radio, helping to bring the music of the 1960s into the ’70s. Aztec Two-Step continues to impress audiences with their shimmering, intricately textured twin guitar sound, as well as their intelligent songwriting ~vintage & brand new~ and their inspiring harmonies.
