Formed in Atlanta back in 2000, The Black Lips’ music is overwhelming, refreshing and unparalleled by their peers. Emerging from the Peach State’s garage rock scene with a vengence, the band is gearing up for the imminent release of their latest album, ’200 Million Thousand.’

Not I, Footfalls, Rockaby

This staging of three one-woman plays by Samuel Beckett—directed by the playwright’s longtime friend Walter Asmus—highlights the obsessive rhythms of existence: rambling, pacing, and rocking. Irish actor Lisa Dwan worked with legendary actress Billie Whitelaw (who originated all three roles) in preparation for her performances, which drew glowing reviews in the UK. In “Not I,” a woman—reduced to a mere mouth, suspended in total darkness—seeks solace in a blisteringly paced stream of her own broken speech. In “Footfalls,” a tattered soul, drained of life, paces relentlessly outside her dying mother’s bedroom. And in “Rockaby,” a woman slowly withdraws from the world, rocked to eterna sleep in her mother’s chair.

Anatomy of A Powerhouse: Electrifying The El

New York Transit Museum, Gallery, Photography

At the dawn of the twentieth century, Manhattan’s landscape was blanketed by smoke with cinders falling to the streets below from steam powered elevated trains. When the Manhattan Railway Company built the 74th Street Powerhouse, the largest alternate current power station to date, it was a marvel of engineering that transformed the city by replacing steam engines with cleaner electric locomotives. The construction of the powerhouse and its early days of operation are captured in photographs from the New York Transit Museum’s collection.

St. Ann’s Warehouse
4:48 Psychosis

Drama, Play
Filled with startling, in-your-face moments of raw emotion, intense brutality and utter tenderness, Sarah Kane’s plays evoke a growing consensus of both controversy and admiration. Completed by Kane just months before she took her own life in 1998 at the age of 28, “4:48 Psychosis” is a deeply lyrical and gut-wrenching journey through the throes of suicidal depression, scaling the heights of human longing and the visceral depths of despair.
