heARTS Aligned

hearts aligned reinert 2010There's an interesting show featuring two great singers this Saturday at Bread and Jam. Katie Haverly and Ashley Pond will be performing a set guided by art.

OK, maybe this will explain heARTS Aligned better:

Over the course of two months, visual artists [Eugene] Falco and [Nick] Reinert created dozens of "song-cards" (four by six inch durable paper) inspired by Haverly and Pond's music and songs. They immersed themselves in the songwriters' work and transferred their visual interpretations onto the song-cards using a variety of mediums including ink and acrylic.
Falco and Reinert's song-cards will be given away in a lottery drawing. The lottery system determines who wins each card, which in turn structures Haverly and Pond's set-lists, as they perform round-robin style beneath the enlarged and projected images of their songs.

We went to last year's heARTS Aligned show (featuring Matthew Loiacono and Matt Durfee) -- it was fun and laid back. If you've never been to Bread and Jam, this is a good opportunity to check out the cozy Cohoes space and see two excellent performers.

The show starts at 8pm. It's $5.

I went to one last month. My friend took his oath of citizenship. It is a great ceremony. A local school choir sang. There was a moving speech from one of the new citizens who grew up a refugee and at the age of 21 was finally a citizen of a country for the first time in her life. The League of Women Voters give warm welcomes, flags and voter registration cards to all the new citizens. It gave me such warm fuzzies. Everyone should try to go to one of these if they get the chance.
