Inda Eaton: New Adventures On The Horizon

Not only is Inda Eaton’s upcoming concert “Authentic Adventures: Acoustic Highway” chock full of storytelling, comedy and, of course, music, but it marks the beginning of a new album adventure, “Shelter in Place,” featuring Michael Guglielmo, Jeff Marshall, B. Rehm-Gerdes, Eve Nelson, Lee and Rose Lawler, and Jeffrey Smith, who will perform with her on Friday, March 16, at Bay Street Theater.

“This show is an original music experience performed in three acts with comedy and improv highly likely,” according to a press release. “Inda’s original Americana roots rock music and storytelling explore unrequited yearning, road trips and outlandish tangential life topics. The show offers a glimpse into the back story and adventures of an indie music project.”

Fans will be waiting until June for the album to drop — it was recently recorded in Eaton’s kitchen in Springs — so in the meantime, they can catch her in concert. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Sag Harbor theater, located at 1 Bay Street.

Advance tickets are $30, or $40 at the door. For more information, please call (631) 725-9500 or visit baystreet.org.

The Herb In Question

Marijuana is having more than a moment in recent years, and what better way to discuss it than with a juried, all-media art show.

“The use of marijuana for both recreational and medical purposes has never been more prevalent — or more socially acceptable. Yet there remain many points of view regarding the substance,” East End Arts Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood explained. “We encouraged our artists to consider the topic with the invitation, ‘Let’s have a dialogue starting with art.’”

Last week, artists delivered their entries for juror Mary Cantone to consider for the show, “Cannabis: Herb of the Hour,” which will open with a reception on Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the East End Arts Gallery, located at 133 East Main Street in Riverhead.

“Many blew me away with their creativity — actually more sculpture than wall art,” Kirkwood said. “Everything from blown glass ‘bongs’ to ‘paranoia art,’ cannabis was looked at from every perspective. It promises to be a very unique and interesting exhibit.”

The show will remain on view through April 20 — no coincidence here, it seems. For more information, please call (631) 727-0900 or visit eastendarts.org.

Sag Harbor Artist Uses Her Voice In New York

Organized by Susan Grabel, Ceres Gallery in New York will present a panel discussion and visual presentation of more than 50 artists’ works responding to the silencing of women and raising of women’s voices — among whom Sag Harbor artist Louise Reiner is participating.

“Through interruptions, censure, violence, threatening behavior, both in person and online, women are silenced every day,” according to a press release. “It’s time to ensure that women’s voices are heard and valued.”

The panel, “Don’t Shut Up,” will be held in honor of Women’s History Month on Wednesday, March 14, at 7 p.m. — though doors open at 6:30 p.m. — at the New York gallery, located at 547 West 27th Street, Suite 201, in New York. For more information, please call (212) 947-6100 or email art@ceresgallery.org.

Don’t Forget Your Dancing Shoes

Hip-hop artist, rapper and human beat-boxer Baba Israel will join forces with a line-up of Latin and jazz musicians — Ada Rovatti, Bill O’Connell, Santi Debriano and Claes Brondal — for a Saturday night of genre fusion that The Jam Session is calling “HipLaJaz.”

“One of the main goals of this concert series is to present and showcase the wonderful world of music within the jazz umbrella and beyond,” Brondal, who organized the “LIVE from SAC” series held at the Southampton Arts Center. “The roots of rhythm and history of the Americas is the unique melting pot of world cultures and societies. We want people to experience some of the best music gumbos and genres rooted in this country. The sub-text is that all humans are interconnected and we live on this planet as one – ultimately sharing one big fat world culture.”

Tickets are $20. Doors open on March 10 at 6:30 p.m. for sangria and small bites, compliments Union Cantina, and the concert starts at 7 p.m. For more information, please call (631) 283-0967 or visit southamptonartscenter.org.
