Janice Anderson

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

6:00pm

Singer Janice Anderson can be described as Ella rafting down a dizzy scat riff, Doris Day crooning praises for the joy of the everyday, and Astrud Gilberto whispering crooked tones through the wet Brazilian summer. A dedicated artist, she is in turn dedicated to the art of others, which led her to found Jazz Vespers in Santa Monica in 2003. Anderson has performed with such jazz notables as Clare Fischer, Bob Sheppard, Anthony Wilson, and Joe LaBarbera and at venues as diverse as the Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, Pasadena Playboy Jazz Festival, and the legendary Hermosa Beach Lighthouse.

The Black Cat

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

1934, 70 minutes, black and white, 35mm | Directed by Edgar G. Ulmer;

Horror movie icons Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi teamed up onscreen for the first time in this satanic horror thriller, which bears only a loose connection to the Edgar Allan Poe classic that provided its title. In a rare good-guy role, Lugosi plays Dr. Vitus Werdegast, who tries to save a pair of honeymooners waylaid from their Orient Express journey from the devil-worshipping, high-modernist Karloff. Combining psychologically scarred characters, a gruesome torture scene, a cat phobia, and a soupçon of necrophilia, this low-budget chiller was the only Universal Golden Age horror film directed by Ulmer. Bathed in copious shadows and fog-laced doom, art director Charles D. Hall’s dazzling German Expressionism–influenced sets are a true standout.

Marc Ribot

Royce Hall - UCLA

Los Angeles, CA 90095

8:00pm

Rolling Stone points out that “Guitarist Marc Ribot helped Tom Waits refine a new, weird Americana on 1985's 'Rain Dogs' and since then he's become the go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp.” The shapeshifting avant-garde guitarist-composer and downtown NYC icon will grace the Royce Hall stage in two different settings that highlight a mere fraction of his seemingly limitless creative output. He is a fearless and endlessly diverse bandleader, go-to studio player, and all-around musical polymath.

Having performed on the scores for Everything Is Illuminated, The Departed and The Killing Zone, Ribot shines in the cinematic form. An opening solo set based on his 2010 album Silent Movies will feature original solo compositions, including several unreleased movie tracks and scores created for films that exist only in the performer’s imagination.

In the program’s second half, Ribot rocks the house with one of New York City’s ultimate party bands, Los Cubanos Postizos (a.k.a “The Prosthetic Cubans”). The group’s feverishly cooking shows are built around arrangements of Cuban bandleader Arsenio Rodríguez—innovator of the son montuno. Re-formed by popular demand with original members Roberto Rodriguez (drums), Anthony Coleman (keys), Brad Jones (bass) and EJ Rodriquez (percussion).
