I know, short-short notice for the NYC crowd … But there’s a pretty giddy concert to attend this (Wednesday) evening at 8:30 PM, St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery (131 East 10th Street, Second Ave. and 10th Street / $10).  The International Street Cannibals — a happy cabal of composers, chamber players, filmmakers and painters, conceived by in 2005 by composer, cellist, conductor Dan Barrett, and steered by composer/guitarist Gene Pritsker — are presenting “Desperately Seeking Stravinsky”.  Now, Stravinsky was always amenable to the dance, and I don’t think there are many of his works that haven’t been choreographed, but I don’t think he or I ever considered what’s on this concert’s bill: a performance of L’Histoire du Soldat with tapdancer, and the piano suite from Petrouchka with breakdancer!  And our old composer pal Joseph Pehrson‘s Blacklight for cello and electronics (in the near-just-intonation tuning system of “blackjack”) will also be performed, and danced as well by Linda Past. So get footloose and flashdance your way down there tonight!
