cartoon-saloon-unveils-trailer-song-sea

A breathtakingly gorgeous, hand-drawn masterpiece based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, Song of the Sea tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of
their past.

Pursued by the owl witch Macha and a host of ancient and mythical creatures, Saoirse and Ben race against time to awaken Saoirse’s powers and keep the spirit world from disappearing forever. As enthralling for adults as it is for children young and old, Song of the Sea is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor that is destined to become a classic.

The Bogmen @ The Paramount

BOGMEN

The Bogmen are an indie rock band from Huntington, Long Island, New York. The band was formed in 1993 by Billy Campion, Bill Ryan, Brendan Ryan, Mark Wike, P.J. O’Connor and Clive Tucker. Billy Campion met Bill and Brendan Ryan in the late 1970s. Sharing a passion for music, they started a band, The Plummers. During college, the group picked up bassist Mark Wike, drummer Clive Tucker and percussionist P. J. O’Connor. With this lineup, the band called itself The Bogmen, in honor of what Campion called its “tribal, huntish” sound. In 1995, after playing at every bar, club and retirement home in the Tri state area, the band from Long Island was signed to Arista Records and released its first album “Life Begins at 40 Million”.

SENIOR FITNESS

At the YMCA, older adults experience a strong sense of belongingness and a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Through on-going, fun, safe, and engaging programs, activities, and events active older adults increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of peers in their community.

We recognize that fundamental health and social activities contribute to older adults living a healthier and more fulfilling life. That’s why we offer programs and services specifically designed to give participants to the ability to stay active, social and exercise regularly.

Classic Rock Supergroup: THE EMPTY HEARTS – Featuring Original Members from; The Cars, Blondie, The Romantics & Chesterfield Kings @ The Paramount
May 28 @ 8:00 pm

Empty-Hearts

Wally Palmar: Vocals/rhythm guitar/harp
Elliot Easton: guitar
Andy Babiuk: bass
Clem Burke: drums

“You can make it if you try/Take a little time/I can help you find a way to/Fill an empty heart.”
Even though The Empty Hearts feature members of Blondie, The Cars, Chesterfield Kings and The Romantics—as well as being christened by Little Steven Van Zandt from his super-secret list of unused band names—this is no cynically constructed super group. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer Clem Burke, two-time Grammy nominee and MTV Video of the Year Award winning guitarist Elliot Easton, bassist Andy Babiuk and lead singer/rhythm guitarist Wally Palmar have parlayed a combined lifetime of rock ‘n’ roll into their self-titled 429 Records debut, a sterling collection of influences that include ‘50s American roots rock ‘n’ roll, ‘60s British Invasion and ‘70s garage-punk that is anything but retro, rather a refreshing return to core musical values.

Get The Led Out @ The Space At Westbury
May 29 @ 8:00 pm

1155

From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.
Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band.
GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country. Such venerable club venues include Penn’s Peak, Electric Factory, Best Buy Theater, HOB Boston, Fillmore Charlotte and Ram’s Head Live, Baltimore. PACs include the Sovereign Performing Arts Center, Count Basie Theater, Filene Center at Wolf Trap, Kravis Center, Durham Performing Arts Center, Lynn Memorial Theater, The Palace in Greensburg and many more. The band will make their first appearance at Red Rocks in Denver in the fall of 2014!
Get The Led Out’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliche as it sounds, their music is timeless.”
A Get The Led Out concert mimics the “light and shade” that are the embodiment of “The Mighty Zep.” Whether it’s the passion and fury with which they deliver the blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, it’s their attention to detail and nuance that makes a Get The Led Out performance a truly awe-inspiring event!
Paul Sinclair – Lead Vocals, Harmonica
Paul Hammond – Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Mandolin, Theremin
Jimmy Marchiano – Electric and Acoustic Guitars, Vocals
Billy Childs- Bass Guitar, Vocals
Andrew Lipke – Keyboards, Guitar, Vocals, Percussion
Adam Ferraioli – Drums, Percussion

Phantogram @ The Paramount
May 29 @ 8:00 pm

Phantogram

Can a band working in relative isolation craft music that resonates with listeners around the world? Can that band and its music evolve and connect with an ever-widening audience without sacrificing quality or compromising integrity?

When the band in question is Phantogram, the answer to both is unequivocally “yes.” And Voices provides indisputable proof.

The New York duo’s second full-length album catches the ear quickly, melding hazy dream pop, dark atmospheres, and head-knocking rhythms into a compelling, original sound. Opener “Nothing But Trouble” contrasts waves of distortion with Sarah Barthel’s beguiling soprano, underpinned by Josh Carter’s gritty urban beats. Moments later, the staccato vocal hook and layered rhythms of “Black Out Days” drive the listener deep into a fever dream of echo and atmospherics. But do not confuse immediacy with instant gratification. The impact of Phantogram’s songs intensifies over time.

Body Count with Special Guests – Suffocation, Stray from the Path & Tension @ The Paramount
May 31 @ 7:00 pm

BodyCount

“There Goes The Neighborhood.”

A new generation of metalheads better brace themselves for the return of Body Count with their Sumerian Records debut, Manslaughter. This is the group that dropped hip-hop attitude into heavy metal and hard rock music before Rage Against The Machine, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Hollywood Undead made records, despite nary an ounce of rapping over their mosh-pit inducing songs. Body Count is a full on metal band, fronted by a legendary rapper who drops knowledge, violent stories and verbal middle fingers, with a bellowing growl descended from some of punk rock’s most pissed off screamers.

Jazz@LIM – Featuring John Scofield @ Museum grounds
Jun 9 @ 5:30 pm

Musician John Scofield performs an outdoor concert on museum grounds. With over 30 recorded albums, John Scofield is considered one of the “big three” of current jazz guitarists — along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell. Performing with other big names such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Phil Lesh and John Mayer to name a few, he has a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity. Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R & B. Event is rain or shine. Bring chairs or blankets for seating. $20 per person ($15 for museum members).

BLI Presents: Shawn Mendes & Jake Miller with Special Guests – Melanie Martinez & Robbie Rosen @ The Paramount
Jun 10 @ 7:30 pm

BLIPresents
Less than a year ago, Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes posted his first cover to Vine. With only a 6-second clip of him singing, guitar in hand, the video took off like wildfire. He continued posting, and his following grew by the thousands, catching the attention of artist manager Andrew Gertler, and resulting in a deal with Island Records. Now over 3 million Vine followers later, and only 16 years old, Shawn has become one of the most buzzed about young artists in music. Hailed by Billboard as “Music’s First Vine Star” and TIME Magazine as one of the “Most Influential Teens Of 2014″, Shawn has emerged from teen viral sensation to major best-selling status almost overnight.
