Genre-defying singer-songwriter Toshi Reagon is doing an NYC residency in November, with three unique dates at Symphony Space on November 5, 10, and 19. On November 5 she presents a show with longtime collaborator Be Steadwell (who Reagon will join on select songs); November 10 is “You’re Having Too Much Fun… So We’re Gonna Have to Kill You,” a work in progress featuring Afi Bijou, Josette Newsam, and Be Steadwell joining Reagon, along with musicians Fred Cash, Matt Graff, Kim Jordan, and Adam Widoff; and November 19 is “Sacred Revolution,” an evening-length song cycle curated by Reagon and featuring J. Bob Alotta, Alsarah, Carl Hancock Rux, Leah Penniman, Maleek Washington, Lizz Wright, and The W.O.W. Project.
Here’s more about the residency:
Toshi Reagon’s conviction that music can be transformative in consciousness and action is revealed through this intimate residency, featuring Be Steadwell’s Queer pop songs, disco’s death and resurrection with a beat, and a song cycle that explores how sacred sounds become the engine of revolution.
Tickets to all three nights are still available.
