Burnt Sugar has a santa-bag full of gigs this month start­ing with a per­for­mance for the Art for Arts Inc. ben­e­fit on Mon­day, Decem­ber 15th. We”ll be joined by the noted acoustic bassist and vio­lin­ist Henry Grimes .
Then before you can say jin­gle, we feel for­tu­nate to of been invited to per­form by Sarah Scan­dif­fio of PS One, Dan Nishi­moto of MOMA and the POPRALLY com­mit­tee for a Neo­HooDoo cel­e­bra­tion on Tues­day, Decem­ber 16th at the PS One Con­tem­po­rary Art Cen­ter in Queens.
The exhibit is boss and we’ll break out our hoo-doo-voodoo chants and songs to get all tribal with it. Not to men­tion visu­als pro­vided by the video ban­dit MJ, and the exclu­sive lim­ited edi­tion print by Susanne Cerha that will be given to each attendee.
You say that’s not enough for your stock­ing stuffer? Well then, how about an after-Christmas per­for­mance on the 26th at Tem­ple M in Harlem. Work off that hol­i­day meal and wet your whis­tle for 2009 when in Jan­u­ary there will be some­thing old, some­thing new and some­thing for the first time in five years. But we can’t open that till January…
