Still rolling along close to 40 years after emerging from the Jersey Shore, Southside Johnny (nee Lyon) brought his Stax driven bar band sound to the newly renovated Paramount Theater in Huntington New York. The band played a mixed set comprised of several tunes from the 2010 release Pills And Ammo along with old favorites like Fever and I Don’t Want To Go Home. Decades on the road have not weakened Johnny’s voice, but rather added a full, throaty roar that would be envied by musicians half his age.
Artist-musician-poet Joseph Arthur attended the opening of a gallery show featuring several pieces of his work on February 25th at the Able Fine Art Gallery on West 25th Street.

The event was attended by several well known luminaries including former REM frontman Michael Stipe, artist/model Sara Conca and creative designers Spencer Drate and Judith Salavetz.
The show will be appearing at the Able Fine Art Gallery at 511 W25th Street through March 13
