Big Little Sunday Warms A Cold Winter

by Brian Slattery | Jan 29, 2015 2:02 pm

Brian Slattery Photo “Thank you all so much for coming,” said Lys Guillorn near the end of her second Big Little Sunday Show at Cafe Nine. “If not for this, I’d be sitting at home in my Hello Kitty Pajamas, reading detective novels.”

Guillorn’s three Big Little Sunday Shows this winter (the next one is Feb. 22) each feature eight different acts, each performing short, casual sets that let the musicians relax—and experiment.

Paul Bass Photo Back in the mid-1990s, not long after I had moved to New Haven from New York City, I was sitting at Lulu’s European Coffeehouse enjoying a mug of her high-test, low acid brew when the eponymous hero of the shop sat down and shoved a sheaf of crumpled papers at me. “This is my friend’s writing,” she said. “You simply must read it.”

by David Sepulveda | Jan 28, 2015 1:15 pm | Comments (3)

Laid out across across the deep-red damask tablecloth were rows, stacks, and booklets full of the small, intricate line drawings artist Daniel Eugene has been creating for years. For Eugene, each drawing was like a spiritual vitamin, a collaboration of pen and mind made during daily, mapless journeys.

Eugene is one of three New Haven artists who conceive of their art as a form of meditation.

DAVID SEPULVEDA PHOTO “I didn’t like to do ordinary things. I wanted to be exceptional,” said senior Alison Fox, as she sat down at the long activity table and gingerly picked up a colored pencil. “After high school, I never did any drawing.”

At 16, Lalibela Spills Its Secrets

by Lucy Gellman | Jan 26, 2015 11:12 am | Comments (2)

Lucy Gellman Photo “What would you like?”  Shilmat Tessema asked as she lifted a warm container of food over her Lalibela truck’s countertop.

Thomas Breen stepped up to the chrome-and-yellow food truck that has become a beloved staple at Ingalls Rink, eyeing the steaming, thick portions of turmeric-kissed cabbage, gleaming, wilted green beans, spice-rubbed carrots, and clay-red lentils that he had been thinking of all week.

Arnott’s Arts Happenings for Jan. 26-Feb. 1

by Chris Arnott | Jan 23, 2015 3:00 pm

Two weeks until Valentine’s Day and we’re already feeling woozy, passionate, weak in the knees. That’s likely the result of a swirling mass of progressive music and provocative art in the air.
