QUINTINOAt a young age, Quintino begins exploring different musical styles and artists before deciding to start a career behind the decks. As he finishes school, he realizes his strong passion for DJing and begins picking up gigs at additional venues. And then, at 18, Quintino is discovered by house music mastermind Laidback Luke.

Carrie Cheron in Concert
"Carrie Cheron's new album, One More Autumn has the ability to hit big in a few different genres, but I think it's the modern country fans that will take to her the most. With a voice that rivals Carrie Underwood, Cheron may find herself leaving the folk/pop genre for Nashville. Musically this is a slower pace then I usually find myself listening to. Most of the album finds Cheron's voice and an acoustic guitar carrying the songs, but with this type of voice that's really all you need. The lyrics tend to tell a story on each song. I was hooked by the second track "Time" and I haven’t taken this album out of my CD player since. This is a very solid album with enough pop mixed into the songwriting to hold your interest and a voice that is going to keep you listening." (JK) - ALLAGESZINE.COM

Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox: 2015 North American Tour
The work of Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox has been viewed on the ensemble’s YouTube channel well over a hundred million times. Most of those doing the viewing, however, are not fully aware of the method to Bradlee’s madness. On the surface, the method is video – clips of full-band performances (that’s Bradlee on piano) shot in the bandleader’s living room with a single stationary camera. The madness: pop hits of the present performed à la pop hits of the past. Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” assayed as a doo-wop number; Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” tricked out in flapper jazz; Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” rendered a 1940s big-band standard. In fact, Bradlee’s method runs deeper. He’s educating his audience about 20th-century song styles; he’s commenting on the elasticity of the pop form; he’s confounding cultural context; he’s uniting generations; he’s breaking the rules. He’s manifesting postmodernist ideas in his approach to production and business as well as music. But as far as the fans are concerned, it’s just fun (and sometimes funny). Bradlee himself will tell you, simply, “I reimagine a song in another style because I want to hear it that way.” Clearly, so does everyone else, as evidenced by PMJ’s presence on concert stages (stateside and abroad) and Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart, where its self-released 2014 opus “Historical Misappropriation” landed in the Top 10 alongside John Coltrane’s “Offering: Live at Temple University” and “All Rise: A Joyful Elegy for Fats Waller.” This proximity of Bradlee’s outfit to Waller is particularly fitting; the former, a self-taught jazz pianist, considers the latter, an innovator of the Harlem stride style who helped lay the groundwork for modern jazz piano, a key influence, as is Jellyroll Morton, James P. Johnson and Art Tatum. Which isn’t to discount the importance to Bradlee’s development of Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” the vinyl incarnation of which was, he says, “the first album I ever loved.” That was when he was six, growing up in Pattenburg, New Jersey, where he moved at four from Nesconset, New York. He took piano lessons, but they didn’t take. Then, at age 12, Bradlee heard “Rhapsody in Blue” and was forever changed. “I got the sheet music and taught myself how to play it,” he recalls. “I started wondering, ‘Where does this come from? What else sounds like this?’” Asked what appealed to him about the popular music of the 1920s, ragtime especially, he says, “I could play it fast and loud. It was brash. And it had contempt for rules, which really appealed to me.” Bradlee began his career as a jazz pianist during high school with a standing gig at a local eatery; he began his career as a pop-cultural provocateur during high school with a “this might be cool” ragtime medley of classic rock songs. “Not much has changed,” he says of the lyrical content of pop music. “In the 1920s, in the ’60s and ’70s, today – it’s still about love and drinking and dancing.” He pursued Jazz Studies at the University of Hartford, then moved to New York to become a starving artist. He booked gigs, but as he puts it, “Jazz pianists are a dime a dozen in New York City.” So he moved to Astoria to save on rent and, in 2009, started making videos. “There was this niche on YouTube where people were doing experimental, interesting, funny things with music,” he notes. “It was another way to reach an audience.” Bradlee’s first video was straight-up jazz. He didn’t have much footage of himself, however, so he decided to try a video experiment of his own: a ragtime medley of ’80s pop. He managed to amass 100 views. But through one of those viewers, Neil Gaiman discovered him. The author tweeted Bradlee’s flying fingers to his millions-strong Twitter following. Within a week, Bradlee reports, “more people had seen that video than had seen me play live my entire life.” Things went viral from there, affording Bradlee and the coalescing Postmodern Jukebox a receptive online crowd. Among Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox’s subsequent hits are a New Orleans-flavored take on Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child o’ Mine” – 3+ million views; the “grandpa-style” reiteration of “Thrift Shop” – 6 million views; and “We Can’t Stop” – 10.5 million views. Media coverage, including the likes of “Good Morning America” and NPR, ensued. How does he come up with this stuff? “A lot of pop songs are constructed of elements that lend themselves to a certain feel,” he points out. “The simple progression of the bass line in ‘Blurred Lines,’ for instance, reminded me of bluegrass. ‘Sweet Child’ sounds like an old blues song – the structure, the way the chorus repeats …” With Cyrus, it was more an instance of tongue-in-cheeky cultural criticism: “She’d gained all that notoriety from her 2013 VMA appearance. I had to recast her song for the ’50s, which everyone thinks of as this squeaky-clean era.” Then there were the gifts from the pop-music gods, like Meghan Trainor’s #1 hit “All About That Bass.” Bradlee knew a musician-singer named Kate Davis. “I’d wanted to do something with Kate for a while,” he reveals, “but I was waiting for the right song to come along.” Check the PMJ video for “All About That Bass” and you’ll find Davis singing – and playing stand-up bass. If you do click there, you’ll be in good company: 3.5 million views and counting. The mashup of Davis and Trainor is some good old-fashioned A&R. The repertoire Bradlee selects for PMJ’s vocal artists has furnished a platform for some very talented but previously little-known performers. And it’s not just the eyeballs afforded by YouTube; Bradlee provides an intuitive musical context for the singular gifts of these singers that allows them to be seen in a new light – it’s as if he’s somehow cracked the code to their essential appeal. Take Puddles. “Last week, a seven-foot clown dropped by my apartment to sing an epic cover of Lorde’s ‘Royals.’ NBD,” Bradlee blogged in November of 2013. Puddles the Clown (née Michael Geier), frontman for Puddles Pity Party, is possessed of a dramatic baritone that has thrilled cabaret-goers for years – but it wasn’t until Bradlee asked Puddles to cover “Royals” in his signature style that he clicked with a mainstream audience. The reinterpretation of Lorde’s chart-topper, just one of Puddles’ collaborations with PMJ, has been viewed more than nine million times. Discovering talent and knowing what to do with it is fundamental to the business of music. Bradlee is something of a postmodernist here, too, having achieved renown doing everything himself, mostly online, “with no budget” (i.e. using the recording equipment he’d had since college). His adherence to the DIY ethos also suggests the decidedly postmodern form of punk rock. “I was a struggling jazz pianist sitting in my basement apartment in Queens,” he attests, “but I just figured it out and made it happen.” That said, punk rock is likely not top of mind for those attending a Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox show. The scene is more reminiscent of a speakeasy, with swells in vintage threads swilling Prohibition-era cocktails. “It’s a variety show, a musical revue featuring special guests,” Bradlee illuminates. “Coming to a PMJ show is like time-traveling back to Old Hollywood – it’s an experience.” Creating that for audiences appears to be PMJ’s ultimate mission.

Planting Seeds of Illumination, Peace, and Reconciliation
Manifesting a Crystal City in Metro Boston
Rev. Chonyi Richard Allen and members of the Sunray Meditation Society

Prayer Circle
Friday - May 8, 2015, 6 pm (Please arrive at 5:45 pm; sorry, no late entry.)
Still Harbor, 666 Dorchester Avenue, South Boston, MA 02127
Organized by Rev Chonyi Richard Allen and the Sunray Meditation Society

All people of like heart and mind are invited to bring their holy voices and the power of love to an evening rooted on the profound ceremonial medicine of the Ywahoo Lineage, Ani Yun Wiwa (Eastern Cherokee): passed in this time to us by Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo, 27th Generation lineage carrier of this ancestral teaching and a recognized Dakini.

Since the long ago, this way of making spiritual medicine has been practiced and is intended to benefit the Earth and all People. Focusing one's mind through visualization, chanting of sacred sound formulae, with sound of rattles (life force makers) and drumbeat; we are reminded that we are all related and connected directly to the heartbeat of the Earth and the heart of the Multi-verse. Let us vivify the elements of life and remind ourselves and all People of the sacredness of this dream of life.

Together we co-create a World of Beauty.

Arrive early at 5:45 pm. Consider bringing a sandwich or a handy meal, as our chanting, rattling and drumming may go until 10 pm. No one will be allowed entry after 6: 15 pm to maintain the integrity of the prayer circle. We ask that people remain until the completion of all prayer offerings.
Free parking is 2 doors down in parking lot. Still Harbor is near the MBTA Red Line Andrew Station.

There are no fees. This medicine is neither bought nor sold. There will be a basket, if people are so moved to make a donation of the heart that these teachings and activities are supported and continue now and into the future.

Please refrain from wearing perfumes, fragrances and aromas in your clothing, on your body or in your hair -- as some may be very sensitive or allergic to these scents. If you feel called, it is appropriate to wear regalia and bring rattles and drums.

In this Time of Coming Together ( "Do- nay- la way- ga") may we call upon our body, speech and mind, recognize our inherent spiritual sovereignty and interconnectedness while carrying out our original instructions that we may we enter into a new time of peace upon our planet.

Looking at Close Reading in the Science Classroom with David Pook (Full-Day Program)

Looking at Close Reading in the Science Classroom with David Pook (Full-Day Program)

Saturday, May 9 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Teachers of Grades K - 12

Join Dr. David Pook, contributing writer to the ELA/Literacy Common Core Standards, for a half-day workshop examining how to leverage standards in science classrooms and instruction. Interested teachers are encouraged to apply with colleagues from their school or district.

Learn how the Common Core State Standards support inquiry-based learning and close reading of texts in science. Using their own materials, teachers will learn how to incorporate text-dependent questions and writing to sources into their own classroom materials. They will also look at the role of science teachers in supporting a culture of close reading in schools as a whole. Workshop participants will leave with teacher-friendly tools for implementing the CCSS standards and a deeper grasp of how these standards are shaping Next Generation Assessments (including the PARCC).

As part of the day's program, participants will have an opportunity to preview the Museum's newest IMAX film Humpback Whales. A complimentary lunch will also be provided.

This workshop is designed for teachers and administrators serving students in grades K – 12. Registration is required at least two weeks in advance. Free parking is available.

This workshop is presented with the support of McGraw-Hill Education.

Mark Starr 
(Dirty Bird, Sounds of Sumo)

Mark Starr has been honing his sound for over a decade, however his career was recently put in the fast lane after his “Sunshine” EP was noticed by Kill Frenzy and other members of dirtybird records. That early dirtybird connection came to full fruition once label-boss Claude VonStroke tweeted at the young producer, stating plainly: "send me something as good as your last remix (of Wet::Sex's "Spaceship") and it's signed on the spot!" 

A fortuitous moment in Mark's career, which has been on a steady upward ascent ever since; in the past year, he's released music on Skrillex's label OWSLA and made himself a home on San Francisco's dirtybird (his track "Rood Boy," featured on the 2013 dirtybird Players compilation, has been rinsed around the world by artists such as Justin Martin, Skream & Benga, Stanton Warriors, Riva Starr, Shadow Child and more). In 2013 Mark has seen airplay of his originals and remixes on BBCRadio1, Radio1Xtra,Rinse.FM, BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix, Ministry Of Sound Radio and has had a guest mix featured on Foamo’s Rinse.FM podcast.

2013 has had a strong finish for Mark, with an original releases and remixes on Shadow Child and Kry Wolf’s Food Music, OWSLA/NestIV, Hot N Heavy, No Brainer Records and Perfect Driver Records; most notably having his remix of Aaron Snapes’s “Whatcha Wanna Do” featured in Claude Vonstroke’s recent Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. 

The release of Mark's latest ep "Mortem" has seen a wide array of support including Claude Vonstroke, Justin Martin, Skream, Friend Within, Roska, T.Williams, Astronomar, Elite Force, DJ Icey, Eats Everything and more. With BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1 Xtra, and Rinse.FM airplay of the new EP, Mark Starr is quickly becoming one to watch in the international bass and breaks scene.
