Dorian Wood: Rhythm Nation 1814
January 17 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $15
For one night only, singer/composer Dorian Wood will honor the 30th anniversary of the release of Janet Jackson’s 1989 masterpiece “Rhythm Nation 1814” by performing it in its entirety, arranged for voice and piano. Says Dorian: “I was 14 when this album came out. No other music at the time sounded like it. I knew every lyric and every dance move, and Janet’s messages of social justice and reluctant sensuality helped shape my adolescence.”
“A cutting edge sound that respectfully acknowledges the folk music of his birth, Dorian is an artist who does not stop…his life is the rhythm of his creative impetus.” – GQ (Mexico)
“The performer, who bends genres as much as he bends gender, in performances that are a little bit torch song and a lot avant-garde, delivers vocals that offer sublime beauty and pain.” – Los Angeles Times
