During a pre-screening of the film Love, Etc. at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, a theater full of New Yorkers fell in love. This film (to be released July 1st) was humorous and heartfelt. The viewer takes a journey through the great city of New York--following five stories all about love, hope and understanding. Whether you are young, old, gay, straight, single or married--you will want to see this film. Such a well done piece by first time feature director Jill Andresevic.

Nashville based band The Worsties made their way to the East coast to tour, promote and simply rock out. This female fronted band is a mix of punk and pop. The lead singer, Anna Worstell is a great talent that is full of energy and a bit unpredictable on stage. Her bandmates (Jesse Worstell, Jairo Ruiz and Nathan Shelton) showcase their talent and passion as they play to the point of sweat drenching their clothes. Check the band's website for tour dates.

The June 3rd opening at Eyebeam Gallery was filled with a vibrant crowd of onlookers, art lovers and science buffs. (I even spotted astrophysicist Janna Levin there.) This exhibition that was first created and shown in Dublin at Science Gallery, is an exploration of music and the body with a series of installations that are highly interactive. The show runs through August 4th.
