You Don’t Need a Bowl For It To Be Super!

Super def. 1. of high grade or quality.
Bowl def. 1. a concave usually nearly hemispherical vessel.

So maybe you wanna go to a quality tailgate party or maybe you wanna eat a high grade hemispherical vessel of chili and drink some domestic beer. Music or comedy more your thang? How about snarky commentary to accompany the big game? No worries. It’s all here.

Super. Bowl. Or Superbowl. You choose.

Hot Tickets: New York

Here are this week’s Hot Tickets in the New York area. Check back every Friday at noon, EST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT! Friday, February 3 I Blacks in Experimental Film: Lost & Forgotten Images of Blacks on Film  A screening of lost and forgotten images of blacks on film followed by an audience led discussion. ‘Blacks in Experimental Film’ attempts to bridge the gap/fill in the space of what is left behind and out. This evening seeks to explore how our perceptions of ourselves have evolved or not evolved based on these representations. We will explore whether its “racist” to show this stuff or even worse to sweep it under the rug and deny it never existed. Materials shown are likely to include an excerpt from Ralph Bakshi’s Coonskin, a minstrel show from the 1939 World’s Fair in San Francisco, Little Black Sambo, Bert Williams performance footage, excerpts from African Pygmy Thrills and Our Gang, footage of the Harlem Globetrotters, Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali and Duke Ellington’s “Black and Tan Fantasy” and mid-century Black home movies and travelogues (Europe! Paris!).

TONIGHT! Friday, February 3 to Saturday, February 25 I Botanica  ‘Botanica’ is a creepy futuristic black comedy that examines our complicated relationship to plant life. Sealed in a human terrarium, two unorthodox botanists and a caretaker with a penchant for erotic literature unleash a flood of unusual findings and overturn the constraints of science and social norms.

Saturday, February 4 I LUTHER “GUITAR Jr.” JOHNSON & The Magic Rockers  Grammy and WC Handy award-winning bluesman Luther “Guitar Junior” Johnson’s playing-style features a blistering blend of sharp single note leads with powerful chordal self-accompaniment, which has influenced such further influential guitarists as Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler. After serving an apprenticeship alongside the late Magic Sam, from whom he inherited the west-side guitar-style throne, Luther gained an international reputation as a guitarist & vocalist in Muddy Waters’ band. By the late ’70s, Luther developed his own signature style, characterized by a strong rhythmic component and deeply moving vocal phrasings. You may also remember seeing Luther featured in the legendary ‘Blues Brothers’ movie … here’s your chance to see him in the Towne Crier’s intimate & respected setting!
