Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Alternative rock artist Mary Lorson has released 10 studio albums to date with the groups Madder Rose, Saint Low, the Soubrettes, and the Piano Creeps. Her songs and voice have appeared in over 30 films and television shows including The Sopranos and Alias. She has created live, original music for the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, the Cornell University Dance Department, poet Lyrae Van Clief-Stefanon, and author Bill Thomas. With Billy Coté, Lorson created the original score for HBO's What Remains: The Life and Art of Sally Mann. Lorson is the composer for Becky Lane's webseries, The Chanticleer. She is also a dramatic writer, penning four feature screenplays and a musical performance memoir, Signals, which was performed in small theaters in New York and Los Angeles in 2015. Her 2016 plans include a brand-new Madder Rose single, more Signals performances, and the June release of her 11th studio album, Themes from Whatever.
Eszter Balint released her new album, Airless Midnight, in late 2015. It was recorded at New York City’s Brooklyn Recording and Richmond, Virginia’s Montrose Recording and produced by JD Foster. In 2014 Balint was gathering material for the new album when out of the blue, after a long hiatus from acting, she was offered a part she could not refuse. She ended up starring in a six-episode arc of the fourth season of Louis C.K.’s F/X series Louie, a performance which earned her considerable critical praise. For her role, Balint also improvised compositions, sang, and played violin, and she returned to working on her album as soon as filming wrapped up.
