Over the last 40 years, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe has served as a home for groundbreaking works of poetry, music, theater and visual arts. But during Hurricane Sandy, the Cafe lost its heating system, and many of the students and artists the Cafe serves are still struggling in the aftermath of the storm. So a lineup of the Nuyo's most accomplished young performers will perform at Joe's Pub on December 20 in a fundraising event for the Cafe and its community.  Featured artists will include muMs da Schemer (Poet from the HBO series OZ); Mahogany Browne (host of the Cafe's legendary Friday Night Slam); Jive Poetic (DJ and host of the Nuyo's Slam Open); poet Caroline Rothstein (whose video Fat was recently tweeted by Lady Gaga); poet, actress and vocalist La Bruja (aka Caridad De La Luz); vocalists Aurora Rose and Melodie Nicholson and poets Caits Meissner and Whitney "Witness" Greenway.  USA Today recommends the Nuyorican Poets Cafe as one of the top cultural attractions in downtown Manhattan, and the Wall Street Journal says the Cafe has grown "from a small, volunteer-led venue to a thriving arts center."

(A Holiday Benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief)
December 22, 2012 at 7:30 PM - $12

Local art-pop songstress Rachael Sage brings her campy, inspiring Tchatchkes & Latkes! back to Joe's Pub as a Holiday Benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief. Her post-Hanukah,-pre-Christmas musical hijinks will feature Sage's quirky theatricality at its best - an upbeat evening of vaudevillian shtick, playful Yiddishkeit, tall tales, wacky props, pianistic flair and hilarious, written-on-the-spot, topical compositions. Sage will weave songs from her ten-album discography with shpiel about her life as a former ballerina, adventures on the road, and her family's extensive menorah collection. Her Edinburgh Fringe Festival one-woman shows, her many previous Joe's Pub appearances, and her acting background (she studied at The Actors Studio and The New York Shakespeare Lab at The Public Theater), all combine to create a singer-songwriter with a compelling stage presence. All proceeds from this performance will benefit the following Hurricane Sandy Relief organizations: The Red Hook Initiative (Brooklyn), Project Hospitality Staten Island Hurricane Relief Fund (Staten Island) and Graybeards (The Rockaways).

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
