Pictures: Samantha Urbani’s debut solo show, playing Baby’s All Right again tomorrow night

Last month former Friends lead, Samantha Urbani debuted her new solo act at Baby’s All Right ahead of her performance at MoMA PS1’s Warmup series. Although the show started much later than billed and the air conditioning at Baby’s was non-functional, the show was really fun and worth the agony. Samantha plays again tomorrow back at Baby’s All Right, but we are told that the A/C is working now so you are in luck this time.  Info on that show here.

The Amy Winehouse Documentary Opens in Theatres Today — Go See It!!

Amy Winehouse Film


Asif Kapadia’s (acclaimed Director of Senna) documentary about the tragic rise and fall of the legendary Amy Winehouse stunned critics at its Cannes debut earlier this year. Today it opens in select cities (New York, UK).  Whether you were a fan of Amy Winehouse and/or celebrity culture or not Amy is a must-see…but be prepared. Amy is a harrowingly difficult film to watch.

The film is very successful in humanizing someone who struggled with addictions and self destruction to ridicule in the public eye and a sea of enablers. Leaving the theatre at an early screening this week I truly felt as if I knew Amy, and though it is a heartbreaking story somehow justice feels like it has been served. Rest in Peace Amy!
