Joe's Pub : 9:30 p.m. May 5

A marvelous mashup that consistently transcends its source material, guitarist Jon Madof's 2013 Tzadik Records debut combined Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach's ecstatic Jewish music with Fela Kuti's swaggering Afrobeat sound.

Trenton Doyle Hancock

Studio Museum Harlem : 12:00 p.m. every Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until June 28

The Great American Pin-Up Returns: The AK Collection

Louis K. Meisel Gallery : 10:00 a.m. every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat. until May 2

The pin-up girl originated in the 1930s, accompanied soldiers to war in the 1940s, mirrored the rampant consumerism of the 1950s, and was eventually reduced to a bit of kitschy fun in the 1960s. The pin-up straddles that line between commercial culture and softcore porn, but in The Great... More >>
