    Cassandra: The Musical

      Yes, the Cassandra of Patrick Longo’s Cassandra: The Musical is that Cassandra: the Trojan princess who is blessed with the gift of prophecy, but cursed because no one will believe her in her visions.

    Rubblebucket

      Brooklyn’s Rubblebucket have been a case study in musical evolution. The core horn section started out as kids with Ithaca reggae mainstay John Brown’s Body. Founded in Burlington, Vt., Rubblebucket started as a traditional afrobeat group before integrating other dance-oriented styles. With their new album Survival Sounds, penned in the wake of frontwoman Annakalmia [...]

    Snarky Puppy

The family feature a rotating cast of 40 musicians, organized by bassist Michael League, and they’ve backed everyone from Erykah Badu to Snoop Dogg. This year it all [...]
