The Midnight Special- Howell Dawdy
Genre: Comedy/Spoken Word/Electronic For fans of: Reggie Watts / Beck / The Streets (UK)

Howell Dawdy is a spoken word entertainer, MC, and poet with a unique voice cleverly deconstructing the mundane and the absurd. His songs are about relationships, creativity, film, isolation, social skills, each subject thoroughly analyzed with a bizarre and often dark twist. Howell attacks the motivation of a minor character in the film Life of Pi; he presents a meticulous defense of the lifestyle of an average house ghost; he spends an entire song extolling the value of the song itself. The music of Howell Dawdy is infectious yet distinct; his songs are crammed with memorable hooks but as idiosyncratic as the voice they accompany.

Willets Point
Willets Point, ugly and unloved, is slowly disappearing off the face of Queens, redeveloped by the people who brought you its neighbor, Citi Field. Shayok Mukhopadhyay used a large-format camera to make formal portraits of the people who are disappearing along with it. They chopped up old cars, sold the parts, fixed younger cars with those parts, played fútbol, grilled their steaks over old oil drums. He will talk about them, and what happens to us when we refuse to look at the consequences of our consumption.

Haiti in New York
