Studio 63: The Losers Lounge Dance Party

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage (Broadway bet. 62nd & 63rd St.)

The Losers Lounge is New York City’s most entertaining house band, always throwing the best parties and filling the dance floor with great music and interesting people. Founded in 1993 by former Psychedelic Furs Keyboardist Joe McGinty, The Losers Lounge canonizes the great songwriting catalogues of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, honoring artists from Abba and Bowie to XTC and The Zombies. Their sold-out public shows validate the love of music fans everywhere, and their enthusiasm is exhilarating.

A Target® Free Thursdays event.

Meet The Artist Saturdays

The Funny Bones Mime Trio

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage (Broadway bet. 62nd & 63rd St.)

Gregg Goldston, Haruka Moriyama, and Joseph Herschel debut their newest work: The History of Modern Mime, a

hilarious and educational travelogue for families about the art of mime.   Beginning with Italian Commedia dell’Arte mask theater and moving on to France, where the modern form of mime was developed by Marcel Marceau, audience members will learn how mime portrays the invisible world of imagination and how its skilled performers can transform themselves from humans to trees to birds and back again. 

FREE Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.  For more information, including program updates, visit atrium.lincolncenter.org

 

Thursday, September 18 – FREE – at 7:30 PM

Target ® Free Thursdays

Hoba Hoba Spirit

David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage (Broadway bet. 62nd & 63rd St.)

This “crowd -wowing multilingual band from Casablanca” (The New York Times) is counted among the 50 groups who shape the culture of the Arab world (Huffington Post, 2012).  With a high-energy delivery, heavy guitars, and droll plays on words, Hoba Hoba Spirit generates its drive from the bold clack of qarqaba (double castanets) and the rhythmic swagger of North Africa, creating its own unique genre of Morroc’n Roll. 

This presentation by Hoba Hoba Spirit is part of Center Stage, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and

Cultural Affairs, produced by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with additional support from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and the Asian Cultural Council. General management for Center Stage is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc.

FREE Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.  For more information, including program updates, visit atrium.lincolncenter.org.
