Andrea Wolper Quartet: The Weaving image

An "audacious artist who flouts genre limitations, singing songs for the love of it and delivering an inventive, thrilling, appealing musical vision" (Blogcritics). Singer, songwriter, poet Andrea Wolper's New York credits include Dizzy's, the Blue Note, JVC Jazz Festival, and she tours nationally and internationally. Embracing Cornelia Street Cafe's history as a home for lovers of jazz, cabaret, experimental music, and poetry, this "utterly refreshing" (JazzTimes), "highly original" (Contra Costa Times)" performer weaves together music, texts, and improvisations. With creative veterans John DiMartino, Ken Filiano, and Michael TA Thompson.

She fills torch songs with sensual longing, then makes abstract vocal improvisations feel intimate as meaningful conversation...highly recommended for anyone who believes in the timeless essence of cool. - Graham, Tucson Citizen

Dan Loomis presents “Job’s Trials: Our Trials” image

The Book of Job (one of ‘mysteries’ of the Old Testament) tackles the question of how to reconcile terrible suffering with faith in a good world. In doing so it invites us to ponder the unknowable and relentlessly hold onto questions that have no satisfying answers. Dan Loomis presents this story in a unique musical and theatrical experience. In this contemporary Oratorio two vocalists, a narrator (in the role of Satan) and a jazz trio guide the listener through the pivotal points of Job’s struggle to maintain faith and humanity.

9:30PM  SONG YI / VITOR / ROGERIO TRIO
Song Yi Jeon, voice;  Vitor Gonçalves, piano;  Rogerio Boccato, drums, percussion

This is a monthly opportunity for artists associated with the cafe--from every genre and every generation, past, present, and future--to gather informally, schmooze, re-invent the world, and hoist a glass of quelque chose (the only kind of chose to hoist). Our glorious curators are present, you can buttonhole them to find out what's cooking, you can introduce yourself to other toilers in the vineyard, invent projects and discover collaborators.

Finger food on us, drinks available. All are welcome.

The 11th Annual  CHARLES BUKOWSKI Memorial Reading image

Come and celebrate the turning of the New Year with Three Rooms Press for the Eleventh Annual Charles Bukowski Memorial Reading! The highly anticipated yearly event is hosted by Three Rooms Press co-direcotrs Kat Georges and Peter Carlaftes and features a collection of poetry, oral history, rare videos, and readings from various authors.

Held since 2008, the event will feature performances of Bukowski poems and tales by a unique cast of talented fans including famed monologist Mike Daisey, world-renowned poet George Wallace, playwright/novelist Richard Vetere (Champagne and Cocaine), playwright Michael Puzzo (Spirits of Exit Eleven), poet Puma Perl (Retrograde), and performance artist Diane O’Debra.

Charles Bukowski was considered the champion of the outsiders, the lost, the lonely, and the outcasts of society. His work is still vividly relevant today. Overall, Bukowski wrote about the human condition, something that can be applied to any time period regardless of changes in technology, politics, or societal conflict.
