Anthony DaCosta, House concert

Sunday, October 17 · 2:30pm - 5:30pm

More Info   
"Seeing Anthony DaCosta on stage is a perfect storm — talent, intensity, humor, passion, intelligence and charm — all bouncing off the walls of the room he is playing" (Court House Concerts). Anthony's music combines folk, rock, Americana and pop, plus what it's like to be "a very young man, with a very old soul" (legendary New York DJ, Pete Fornatale).

Now nearing 20 and a sophomore at Columbia University, in 2009, Anth...ony was named an MSNBC.com "Top 5 Up-&-Coming Young Singer" and a "WFUV-FM New Artist To Watch". In 2008, he released two, critically-acclaimed albums and was a Folk Alliance "Emerging Artist of the Year" nominee. In 2007, at 16, he became the youngest winner ever at the Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festivals.

Anthony has played major festivals, including Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Philadelphia and Tonder (Denmark); showcased at SXSW and Tin Pan South; opened for music icons, like Loretta Lynn, Judy Collins, and Dan Bern; and, with one foot in folk, and the other foot loose and wandering into various other genres, released his eighth record in 2009, "Not Afraid of Nothing," which "has the lyrical quality of a John Prine album" (Twangville). He is currently halfway finished with his latest album, a rock/americana effort recorded in Brooklyn, NY and featuring a slew of wonderful NYC musicians.

Suggested artist donation is $15 per guest.

Jersey City Studio Tour Closing Party

Closing Party @Parlay Studios| 161 2nd St.| Sunday, Oct. 3rd, 6-8pm

Sunday Night Film Forum: JCAS presents REC

‘REC’ follows a television reporter, Ángela Vidal, and her cameraman, Pablo, who cover the night shift in one of Barcelona's local fire stations for the fictional documentary television series While You're Asleep. When the firehouse receives a call from an old lady trapped in her house, they reach her building to hear horrifying screams -- which begin a long nightmare and a uniquely dramatic TV report.

Co-directed by Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza, ‘REC’ premiered at the 2007 Venice International Film Festival, and immediately inspired the American remake “Quarantine.” Come see an exciting piece of Spanish horror in JCAS’s series of horror films showing at Sunday Night Film Forum between now and Halloween.

Film starts at 7:30, discussion to follow
FREE admission; $5 donation suggested.
Beverages will be available, but please leave food at the door.
