WICKED

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - musical in a long time" (USA Today).

Dr. L. Subramaniam with Fareed Ayaz & Abu Muhammad

Thursday, September 10, 2015 – The Moore Theatre - Save 15%!

Dr. L. Subramaniam
A gifted South Indian counterpart of Jean-Luc Ponty on the electric violin, and endlessly curious about all kinds of music, Subramaniam has been a pioneer in exploring intelligent fusions between European classical music, American jazz, rock and South Indian music. His father, a master Indian violinist, and mother, who played the Indian vina, were his first musical influences. After abandoning a career in medicine, he formed a violin trio with his two brothers while still in India. He toured America and Europe with Ravi Shankar and ex-Beatle George Harrison in 1974, made his first fusion album in Copenhagen (Garland), and wrote material for Stu Goldberg and Larry Coryell in 1978. He settled in the Los Angeles area in the late ‘70’s in order to earn a doctorate in Western music at the California Institute of the Arts, where he also taught South Indian music.

Fareed Ayaz & Abu Muhammad
Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammad learned the art of Qawwali (Qawwali is a traditional form of music and song found in India and Pakistan, part of the Sufi Muslim tradition) from their father, the late Ustad Raziuddin Ahmed of the Delhi Gharana. This unique tradition of Qawwali can be directly traced back over 700 years to Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia and Hazrat Amir Khusrau of the Indian Sub-continent.

The group sings in multiple languages including Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi, Hindi, Farsi, Arabic, Bengali, and Purbi. They use music as a spiritual force – singing repetive phrases continually until the words lose their meaning, like a mantra, and become pure sound, with the goal of moving the participant and the audience towards a state of spiritual enlightenment.

The government of Pakistan has decorated Fareed Ayaz Qawwal with the "Pride of Performance" Award. The group continues their family tradition of performing Qawwali by consistently touring across the globe.

Snarky Puppy

Sunday, November 22, 2015 – The Neptune Theatre - Save 10%!

SNARKY PUPPY is led by award-winning bassist/guitarist/composer/arranger Michael League, whose creative grass-roots approach to a tougher-than-ever industry has created a new model for independent artists.

Third, and probably most importantly - SNARKY PUPPY is a group of musicians enthusiastically committed to music education and community outreach.

The once Texan, now New York-based quasi-collective has gone from the best-kept secret to one of the most respected names in instrumental music. Although still “underground” in many respects, the band has earned high praise from critical stalwarts like the BBC, Village Voice, Guardian, and Boston Herald, and has performed at some of the best venues and festivals in Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America.

Tanya Tagaq presents Nanook of the North

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 – The Neptune Theatre - Save 15%!

TANYA TAGAQ’S music isn’t like anything you’ve heard before. Unnerving and exquisite, Tagaq’s unique vocal expression may be rooted in Inuit throat singing but her music has as much to do with electronica, industrial and metal influences as it does with traditional culture.

This Inuk punk is known for delivering fearsome, elemental performances that are visceral and physical, heaving and breathing and alive. Her shows draw incredulous response from worldwide audiences, and Tagaq’s tours tend to jump back and forth over the map of the world. From a Mexican EDM festival to Carnegie Hall, her music and performances transcend language.

With this project, Tagaq, a Polaris Music Prize winner and two-time Juno Award nominee, reclaims the controversial 1922 silent film Nanook of the North. Nanook of the North is considered the world's first major work of non-fiction filmmaking, yet it is rife with contradictions. The film portrays the lives of an Inuk family in Arctic Canada. Its director, Robert Flaherty, lived and worked with Inuit for years, but still included staged scenes of buffoonery and feigned Inuit ignorance of modern accouterments.

Tanya Tagaq in concert with Nanook of the North was commissioned by TIFF Bell Lightbox as part of its film retrospective, First Peoples Cinema: 1500 Nations, One Tradition.
Nanook of the North film is used courtesy of The Flaherty.

Arlo Guthrie - Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary

Saturday, April 16, 2016 – The Moore Theatre - Save 15%!

Legendary folk music icon ARLO GUTHRIE embarks on a 18-month North American tour launching January 21, 2015 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the event that inspired the seminal song, "Alice's Restaurant Massacree.”

Arlo Guthrie's career exploded in 1967 with the release of "Alice's Restaurant", whose title song premiered at the Newport Folk Festival helped foster a new commitment among the '60s generation to social consciousness and activism. Arlo went on to star in the 1969 Hollywood film version of "Alice's Restaurant," directed by Arthur Penn. With songs like "Alice's Restaurant," too long for radio airplay; "Coming into Los Angeles," banned from many radio stations (but a favorite at the 1969 Woodstock Festival); and the definitive rendition of Steve Goodman's "City of New Orleans," Guthrie was no One-Hit-Wonder. An artist of international stature, he has never had a 'hit' in the usual sense. He has usually preferred to walk to his own beat rather than march in step to the drum of popular culture. Over the last five decades Guthrie has toured throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia winning a wide, popular following. In addition to his accomplishments as a musician, playing the piano, six and twelve-string guitar, harmonica and a dozen other instruments, Arlo is a natural-born storyteller, whose tales and anecdotes figure prominently in his performances.

This Mother's Day, SRO celebrates the man, the myth, the legend: Neil Diamond. With a career spanning over 50 years, 30 studio albums, dozens of hits and over 125 million record sales, Diamond is undoubtedly a monolithic figure in music history. Riding the line between sincere artistry and pure camp (and crossing it again, and again) Diamond's songs have etched themselves permanently in our collective cultural memory. SRO will explore Diamond's entire catalogue, performing hidden gems and revered hits alike, including 'Cherry, Cherry,' 'Sweet Caroline,' 'Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon,' 'I'm A Believer,' 'Cracklin' Rose,' and many more.

Seattle Rock Orchestra (SRO) was born out of the desire to marry the unabashed performance energy of rock'n'roll with the broader palette of musical nuances treasured in classical music. With a 50+ piece orchestra complete with strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, choir and a rotating cast of guest vocalists, SRO is embarking on its fifth full season of programming.

Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays - Flapper Era Series

Mondays, June 13, 20 and 27, 2016 – The Paramount Theatre - Save $1!

Fun and frolic are in store for June 13, 20 and 27 when leading ladies from the Flapper Era and Jazz Age strut their stuff on the screen. In the works are Cecil B. DeMille’s Chicago (1927) starring Phyllis Haver as Roxie Hart. Screenwriter Frances Marion coined the phrase in the first appearance of a flapper starring legendary Ziegfeld Follies performer Olive Thomas in The Flapper (1920). Charming Colleen Moore stars in the newly restored Why Be Good (1929). With bobbed hair and short skirts, the brash and brave Flappers of the Roaring 20’s listened to jazz music and danced the night away. Unleash your inner Flapper by coming to The Paramount in vintage 20’s attire for a costume parade, have a photo-op in an antique car and take pre-film Charleston lessons in the lobby. All films will be accompanied by the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.

CineClub will follow each film in the Paramount Lobby bar.
