It’s Earth Day @ Grand Central – live music included + the Dead played Letterman – Nassau tonight, MSG Saturday


“The pivotal scene in Dumbo (1941), for instance, is the transformation of consciousness and augmentation of capacity — in this case, the big-eared elephant’s motor skills — via a hallucinatory delirium brought on when the dejected pachyderm drinks a barrel full of water into which, unbeknownst to him, a bottle of spirits had been accidentally spilled. To the foreboding lyrics and serpentine melody of “Pink Elephants on Parade,” Dumbo begins seeing things “you know that ain’t” (a succession of fractals and geometrical patterns, forms morphing into new ones, and scenes of Oriental mystery and erotica), then passes into oblivion, from which he wakes up in the highest branches of a tree. Thus Dumbo earns his wings not through an act of obeisance to the Ten Commandments but in the throes of a psychotropic-induced visionary state.” []

Grand Central Station in NYC is celebrating Earth Day today (4/24) and Saturday. There’s food, face painting, yoga, recycling, live music and much more. Dar Williams will be there today at 5:45. Full schedule below.

Strangely, today’s Grand Central schedule also includes a “BREAK” due to “Noise Ordinance” today from 2-5pm. This is fueling rumors that The Dead, who are in town (again) to play Nassau Coliseum tonight (4/24) and MSG tomorrow (4/25) will show up for a secret show (again). It’s probably not true, but if you have nothing better to do and want to head over there based on that, at least there are plenty of other eco-friendly diversions to keep you busy.

The Dead played Letterman last night. Video of that, and full Grand Central music schedule below…
