Extremists are threatening to shut down clinics and block patients from accessing reproductive and sexual healthcare which is why we decided to come together to host the biggest and nastiest party of all. Where every dollar you contribute goes toward the leading provider of healthcare and promoter of policies that make those services available to all - Planned Parenthood.

At A Night of Nasty not only will we stand with Planned Parenthood, raise money, and dance the night away; we will exclaim that we are ready to fight like hell to defend our ability to make informed, independent decisions about our reproductive and sexual lives! Being nasty never was so much fun or did so much good.

David Byrne presents How Music Works, a stage version of his incisive and enthusiastic book about the musical art form, from its very inceptions to the influences that shape it, whether acoustical, economic, social or technological. Utilizing his incomparable career and inspired collaborations with Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and many others, Byrne taps deeply into his lifetime of knowledge to explore the panoptic elements of music, how it shapes the human experience, and reveals the impetus behind how we create, consume, distribute, and enjoy the songs, symphonies, and rhythms that provide the backbeat of life. Byrnes magnum opus uncovers ever-new and thrilling realizations about the redemptive liberation that music brings us all. Featuring his new chapter on Digital Curation, David Byrne curates an evening of music with a diverse cast of artists and performers.

Spend a night drumming with Batalá New York!
In this workshop, Batalá will demonstrate Afro-Brazilian music from its global repertoire. Attendees will then have a chance to learn basic Afro-Brazilian rhythms, explore musical parts and roles associated with Samba Reggae and practice the techniques of wearing a drum and dancing while playing. The workshop will culminate in students playing a Batalá song together alongside members of the ensemble.

This workshop is best for beginner or intermediate students, and is especially suited for dancers who are curious about drumming. Everyone is welcome, and women are especially encouraged to attend.
