The best way to reserve tickets is by selecting a team captain and having them be in charge of tickets for ALL team members.

For example, if CJ, Leo, Josh and Toby are a team and Leo gets put in charge, he will then reserve tickets for himself, CJ, Leo, Josh and Toby = (4) in total.

Pinstripes will send a confirmation email to everyone closer to the event.

An Evening With Schoenberg and Kandinsky at The Phillips Collection

July 28, 2019

Enjoy an evening of art and music at The Phillips Collection on August 15, 2019 starting at 6:30 pm with Music and Migration: Postclassical Ensemble, The Reinvention of Arnold Schoenberg.

 

In the years preceding World War I, Arnold SchoenbergWasilly Kandinsky, and Ferruccio Busoni craved liberation. The result was non-tonal music and non-representational painting. As friends, Schoenberg and Kandinsky corresponded with one another through letters. Kandinsky wrote to Schoenberg in 1911, “In your works you have realized what I have so greatly longed for in music. Today’s dissonance in painting and music is merely the consonance of tomorrow.” Schoenberg responded, “Art belongs to the unconscious! One must express oneself directly! That which is inborn, instinctive!”

 

Explore the revolution in art and music, that Kandinsky and Schoenberg simultaneously plotted, in a program of letters, art, and music, including Schoenberg’s own seething refugee response to Pearl Harbor, Ode to Napoleon, in which he exalts George Washington (standing in for FDR).

 

This performance is in conjunction with the Phillips’s exhibition The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie at The Anthem July 26

June 3, 2019

Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie will perform live at The Anthem July 26, 2019.

 

Costello and Blondie share a history, having both emerged from the late Seventies New Wave movement. At one point in 1979, both acts were rubbing elbows at the top of the UK album charts with their respective third LPs, the former’s Armed Forces and the latter’s Parallel Lines. (In the mid-Nineties, Costello and Blondie singer Debbie Harry collaborated on a track with the Jazz Passengers.)

Costello & the Imposters issued their most recent album, Look Now, in 2018. Blondie released their 11th record, Pollinator, in 2017. During their recent live runs, both bands performed at the 2018 Riot Fest
