Jeanne Newhall and Kazunori Koga

Catalina Bar Grill

Hollywood, CA 90028

8:30pm

Jeanne Newhall is a well-respected composer and sophisticated vocalist and her vast musical roots have impacted jazz and new age since the early '90s. But before her successful recording career, Newhall's musical dreams were firmly shaped during her early childhood when she began tickling the ivories at age six. The early teenage years of mastering the piano while growing up on a farm in her native Phoenix led Newhall to learn six Mozart concertos by age 15. Opportunities to attend some of the nation's most prestigious music schools such as Julliard and Eastman didn't strike her fancy, however. Newhall studied with Abbey Simon at Indiana University before earning a degree from Arizona State. By the late '80s she was serious about a recording and performing career.

The Green

El Rey Theatre

5515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:00pm

The Green formed on O‘ahu, Hawai‘i, in 2009.  The group began as a vehicle for six different members of Hawai‘i’s tight-knit music scene to record a few songs and have a bit of fun along the way.  Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year.

Afterwards, the band jumped on a plane to the mainland and started a heavy touring cycle.  On the strength of their debut album, The Green struck a record deal with ground-breaking independent reggae label Easy Star Records to record their sophomore album, Ways & Means.  Ways & Means hit #1 on the iTunes and Billboard Reggae charts and the band embarked on more intense touring; supporting acts like Rebelution, Iration, SOJA and Damian Marley. They also played at acclaimed festivals including Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival and California Roots Festival.

Virginia Lopez, the Venezuela correspondent for the British daily newspaper The Guardian, and Miguel Tinker Salas, professor of Latin American history at Pomona College, examine the successes and failures of the Bolivarian Revolution—from its 1999 inception to the present day—as Venezuela’s contentious politics, economic woes, and social tensions show no signs of abating.
