marjy bangs presents Classic Paranoid Cinema

The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

Eerie, shocking, daring, thrilling and mesmerizing, The Manchurian Candidate will leave you breathless (People)! Featuring an all-star cast, including Angela Lansbury in an Oscar-nominated performance, this chilling and controversial (Leonard Maltin) film may be the most sophisticated political satire ever made (Pauline Kael). When a platoon of Korean War G.I.s is captured, they somehow end up at a ladies garden club party. Or do they? Major Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra) can't remember. As he searches for the answer, he discovers threads of a diabolical plot orchestrated by the utterly ruthless Mrs. Iselin (Lansbury) and involving her war hero son (Laurence Harvey), her senator husband (James Gregory) and a secret cabal of enemy leaders.

notloB Music presents

Blanca and Chuchi Alcuadrado

an acoustic concert featuring music from Burgos in the Castile region of Spain

an acoustic concert featuring music from Burgos in the Castile region of Spain

"Hey Northeast friends.... BLANCA AND CHUCHI (from Spain) whom we all know and love from Alasdair Fraser's camps, Crisol, VOM and Sierra are going to be in Cambridge as well as a few other spots in early October. Here is their Oct. 8 gig info.... They are both amazing performers reviving the music of Burgos and the rest of Castile with strong Celtic influences. They are really fun too."

-Barbara Bentley Haas


More info at 


Blanca & Chuchi Alcuadrado are two young Spaniard musicians in the vanguard of their respective instruments, young but with enough background and experience. They play violin and acoustic guitar respectively — two "traditional" instruments with which they revive the music of Burgos and the rest of Castile, though with strong Celtic music influences.Obsessed with music since childhood listening to her grandfather Simon, a dulzaina player from the city of Burgos, Blanca was determined to record an album in homage to him and found her best ally in Chuchi, guitarist of the prestigious group Vallarna. With a packed house, as always, the duo offered their particular vision of various traditional dances including paloteos, wheel dances, habas verdes, sword dances and jotas, plus some of their own compositions, songs that sounded very happy in their hands. Blanca & Chuchi Alcuadrado form a duo with a great future. So far they have collected their excellent work in a remarkable album released last year under the title of Mayo, whose secret lies in its natural and sincere offering without artifice.

An evening with Arthur Goldhammer
Arthur Goldhammer has translated from French more than 125 books in history, fiction, philosophy, the social sciences, and economics over a career spanning some 40 years. He is perhaps best-known for his recent translation of Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-first Century, a book about economic inequality that has sold more than 400,000 copies.

Now Art Goldhammer tackles Marcel Proust! His latest project is a graphic novel translation of Swann's Way, one of the classics of 20th-century literature. Art will read from his translation and compare his choices with those of previous Proust translators. He will also talk about how he found his way into translation after serving in Vietnam and deciding against a career in physics.

+Robert Rivera  - solo cello (opening set)

The roots are deities and the deities are roots. They are naked. They are birth and rebirth. They embody the sacred moment

Naked Roots Conducive is the much anticipated collaboration between violinist Natalia Steinbach and cellist Valerie Kuehne, as well as a phrase uttered by Ms. Steinbach in her sleep. A classical swan song thickened by vocal harmonies and aesthetic disillusionment, Naked Roots Conducive fuses Performance Art with hungry Post-Romanticism and Acoustic Noise.

There is also the truth of The Cult of Professional Madness.
