Christine Lavin Presents…The Funny Side of the Street: A Night of Brighter Laughter with Don White – Fri. Oct. 17 @ 8pm

Don&ChristineLeave your worries at the doorstep and join Christine Lavin and Don White as they present a night of comedy unlike any other, The Funny Side of the Street: A Night of Brighter Laughter, together for the first time at the Cape Ann Community Cinema on Friday, October 18 at 8pm.

Since 2008 these two veteran performers have brought their unique brand of clean and hilarious musical comedy to audiences across the US proving night after night that comedy can be smart, friendly, and breathtakingly funny without being vulgar or pejorative. This is a show for anyone who wants to laugh, whether it’s a group of friends or a family gathering, and feel good on their way out of the venue.

Since emerging from the NYC singer/songwriter scene in the late 1980s, (along with  Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, John Gorka, etc), Lavin quickly established herself  as an entertaining tour de force.  Quick on her feet, witty, insightful, engaging, she remains one of the most popular and respected performers in the genre.

Christine has also been at the forefront of finding and promoting extraordinary new talent.  She founded a songwriter’s retreat on Martha’s Vineyard, the On a Winter’s (and Summer’s) Night tours), The Four Bitchin’ Babes, Laugh tracks among many other projects, in the process releasing more than 10 compilations CDs, as well as more than 20 of her own.

Her co-conspirator, Don White, is the latest artist that Christine has championed.  “He’s such an original; I call him sometimes a ‘blue collar intellectual,’” Lavin says. “Don has extremely high standards when it comes to what he does onstage. And he hits a grand slam every time. The first time we worked together he opened for me and it’s the only time in my entire career that I opened with a ballad because he was so funny, the audience was so laughed out.”

A product of the rich Boston Arts Scene of the 90s Don developed his songwriter/performer chops in the same Club Passim/ Olde Vienna Kaffehaus scene that produced Dar Williams, Martin Sexton, Lori McKenna and Vance Gilbert. He was also a regular comedian at the legendary Catch a Rising Star in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Mass honing his comedic skills alongside Jimmy Tingle, David Cross, Wendy Leibman and a host of other cutting edge comics of the time. These experiences along with his immersion in the Boston spoken word scene that produced the National Poetry Slam Championship Team in 1992 all combined to make him one of the few performers who brings a comic’s wit, and a poet’s heart to his songs and stories.

“It doesn’t sound like a folk concert, it sounds like a comedy concert,” says White of his laughter-inducing co-bills with Lavin. “We rehearse and we rehearse and then inevitably, she’ll throw something at me that I have no idea about, with a mischievous grin that lets me know she’s been thinking about it all afternoon. Just to see what will happen. And she’s taught me to do the same.”

Audiences are looking for something fun, fresh, smart, and  intriguing as well as thoughtful:  On the Funny Side of the Street does just that.

Tickets are $25.00 General Admission and $22.00 for CACC members. Advance ticket are preferred. Click on the green “Buy Tickets” button below to purchase your tickets today.

For The Love Of Dolby

Thomas Dolby, whose name you might have heard, or seen scrawled like graffiti on a blog about Moogs or something like that, is to pop music what Voyager 2 is to space exploration. And no, “She Blinded Me With Science” is not his only hit song, although you have probably seen the video all those years ago on MTV. Perhaps you bought “The Golden Age of Wireless” and came to appreciate this long-legged kind of glamorous Brit-pop for what lies beneath those strange album covers and glints of engineering on the bespectacled face of this heroic and legendary proto-geek. I didn’t. Instead, I huddled while imprisoned in the grey halls of a New England prep school, lonely, angry, and bewildered by joules of hormones, beneath my Walkman headphones listening to “Cloudburst at Shingle Street” and thinking of seducing the girls in my car pool if only they would talk to me. And I heard things I could only hope to say to myself in the submarine of scrubbing desks or sweeping floors during the summer break:

when I was small
I was in love
in love with everything
and now there’s only you

And now there’s only you, Thomas: the last bottle of New Wave Lafite ’82, a bouquet of Art Deco and stratospheric synths emboldened by persistence of vision and impeccable taste, whose sadness and observation, manic moments, and blind science create haunting atmospheres out of baryonic matter.

Having taken off two decades to facilitate a queue of non-pop accomplishment before returning with “A Map of the Floating City,” Thomas Dolby behind his insane steampunk facade offers something between friendly and spooky, reaching out with ordinary metaphor, in this case “Flying North” with a lo-fi digital camera, to catch the wonder betwixt the emptiness of “The Invisible Lighthouse.” He seems fine. More than that. Relaxed. Unrushed. The same man who referred to himself in the third person just a wee bit on “Weightless” to let us in on the frustration of his love life is now playing live the electronic sounds and lost melodies for which he continues to be loved.

I’ve waited thirty years.

You see, Thomas Dolby: The Idea is ever-present to his fans, who hover over him in chat rooms asking Who Is Caroline 452? Or, is that really the riff from “The Six Million Dollar Man” embedded in “One of Our Submarines”? (Yes, it is!) And Thomas Dolby is a good idea, thick in Britannia like on his album covers, whether he’s lost in the sauce expatriated in Los Angeles or sampling the doppler of church bell on “Cruel.” Between the electronic drum sounds of “Europa and the Pirate Twins,” he mentions his preteen crush to “The Twelfth of Never,” which I take as Nina Simone’s unforgettable 1963 version. And once you are old, and hear Nina sing it, and think about Thomas referencing this all those years ago, you get trapped in his mythology.

Then into “The Flat Earth” you go, with the maturity at hand to know why “Screen Kiss” makes you hurt, why it leaves you rushed and needy to have somebody love you before it’s too late. And if you’re like me, you grow up and move out West and behold the haze above old Hollywood, where deer look down from the hills, and it’s three o’ clock in the morning. And perhaps, if you’re lucky, you’ll synch a near perfect seduction to his cover of “I Scare Myself,” slow-dancing to the handsome Joe Jacksonesque piano blurs and so unbelievably lost in whatever that is.

Mr. Dolby, may I say what a pleasure it’s been to live inside your music for thirty years. I’ll see you November 1 for “The Invisible Lighthouse.” And most properly, sir, Adieu.•••

Thomas Dolby will present his film “The Invisible Lighthouse” with live music, narration, and foley at the Cape Ann Community Cinema on Friday, November 1st at 7:30pm to kick off the 6th annual Cape Ann Film Festival.
