From the Picture House in Pelham:
The Picture House is celebrating 2012 on January 19th with legendary guitarists Howard Alden and Bucky Pizzarelli. The two will share stories about their careers and working with Sean Penn during the preparation and filming of Woody Allen’s movie SWEET AND LOWDOWN at a Q&A discussion after the screening. Then Alden and Pizzarelli will perform songs from the film as well as other original music.
This is also the first time since the silent film era that The Picture House has hosted such a concert on its stage. The new Community Stage, which was recently completed, now allows The Picture House to expand its programming opportunities.

Black 47 | $25
Jan 21, 2012 @ 8 pm
Espousing an unblinkingly political and thoroughly Irish form of rock ‘n’ roll through with raucous, heartfelt, and intelligent performances, Black 47 earned their chops playing the pub scene in Manhattan and self-producing their first record before gaining mainstream attention with their second, produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars. After years of relentless touring, the band’s signature eclectic sound, socially conscious lyrics and exciting concerts paved the way for other Irish-influenced bands such as Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys and inspired Time to write, “Finally, rock ‘n’ roll that means something again.”
It’s time for Beatlemania all over again…
