    Last week, The Daily Beast revealed that Art With Me, a wellness and dance music festival running from Nov. 11-15 in Tulum, Mexico, was a COVID-19 superspreader event, with multiple attendees and performers contracting the virus at the packed, hundreds-strong fiesta and transporting it back to Miami and New York City. “I would say that 60-70 percent of my positives in the last couple weeks in New York City have been a direct result of either people coming back from Art With Me or who have been directly exposed to someone who attended Art With Me,” said Eleonora Walczak, founder of the private COVID care and testing company Checkmate Health Strategies. “And I test in Miami as well, and my testers there tell me that a lot of their positives are people coming back from Art With Me.” But even as the impact of that fiasco came into focus, locals...

              When I saw/heard David Phillips’ (aka wino-strut) video for his newest single, “Natural Home” I knew this was someone I wanted to interview. The song had an interesting, old school sound that I wasn’t quite sure if it was Americana, Outlaw Country, or Rock’n’roll. What I didn’t realize was that Phillips is a renowned expressionist American painter. He is a unique, non-commercial aesthetic artist with unrivaled natural talent. Conversely, music was something in his spare time he did when the oil paint was drying. Phillips was raised in two towns in Oklahoma, Tulsa and an Indian reservation town called Nowata. His mother was a single mom and raised him and his two brothers alongside their grandmother. His grandmother was an oil painter and when he and his brothers would get in trouble, she would separate them into three rooms. The room Phillips got...
    Michael M. Sinclair On paper, Gloffy and Jeff Brawer make strange bedfellows. One is a Tampa pop icon with about two dozen albums under his belt while the other writes working class acoustic punk songs at whatever pace he goddamn well pleases. In real life, however, the boys are pretty close to BFFs, and it’ll be cool to see them both onstage at Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café, a Seminole Heights eatery which has long figured out how to hold live music events under the odd and always-changing rules the Sunshine State is imposing any given week. Reservations are required. Jeremy Gloff w/Jeff Brawer. Fri. Oct. 23, 9 p.m. No cover (reservations required), Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café, Tampa. Get info and see more of the Ella’s calendar here. Tampa Bay venues and promoters need you to bug Marco Rubio about saving the live music scene. Support local journalism in...
    A new mural graces the side of Higher Grade’s dispensary at Elati Street and 13th Avenue in Denver, replacing a former painting honoring the Denver Broncos Super Bowl championship in 2016. The new painting, completed by Denver artists TukeOne and Chad Bolsinger October 7, features a fantasy landscape with tropical trees set in front of snow-capped mountains, distant pine forests and neat rows of agricultural fields. Higher Grade moved into the building after two cannabis dispensaries, Advanced Medical Alternatives and Damian Marley's Stony Hill, served as previous tenants at 1269 Elati Street. By the time Higher Grade called the building home, a not-so-flattering portrait of Super Bowl XVI MVP Von Miller had been there for several years, according to Higher Grade brand manager Brittany Brewer.Related Stories Tony Ortega's Día de los Muertos Art Now Featured on Weed Edibles Dispensary Enlists Denver Tattoo Parlor to Create Marijuana Strain Motifs Struggling Boulder Music Venues Receive...
    Veteran actress Shabana Azmi shuns the hardliner stance that music and art is prohibited in Islam. She cites the example of greats such as late shehnai legend Ustad Bismillah Khan and late sarod maestro Ustad Ali Akbar Khan to underline her point that true art is created when it is kept away from religious extremism. She notes that the very essence of Indianness is inclusiveness. “We have to make redundant the questions that prevent the practice of art, and bring religious extremism in between. Shibani Dandekar Joins Farhan Akhtar’s Family Luncheon, Shabana Azmi Shares the Video There are people who say music and art is prohibited in Islam, but look at how iconic artistes like Ustad Bismillah Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and so many other artistes have earned respect and success with their art and craft because they have made that question redundant thanks to their artistic excellence.

    For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters. The power of a single photo to galvanize generations of artists has never been more clearly captured than in the one taken 62 years ago today on the sidewalk and stoops of 126th Street between Fifth and Madison in New York City. It’s the most immortalizing, iconic image in American music: On August 12, 1958, 57 musicians got together for an extended reunion that doubled as an Esquire cover shoot. Titled “A Great Day in Harlem,” the photo features legend after legend—after legend after legend—their collective creativity giving the moment its timelessness. To celebrate the anniversary, the Billie Holiday Theatre and a Brooklyn production group are inviting artists to reimagine the scene.
