A message from Urb Alt

From the URB ALT mailing list:

Hi, All!

The URB ALT Festival is pass the halfway point. The Village Voice
recently called us 'intensely forward-thinking and diverse." We've
kicked it at Harlem School of the Arts and Faison Firehouse Theater
with great artists such as Res, Kyp Malone, Pillow Theory, The Exit,
Otto Fischer, MuthaWit, Tenderhead, etc. We're bringing you more!

The third night is indeed the charm as URB ALT Festival 2007 rolls
into Harlem's Shrine World Music Venue in homage to the chairman of
the board, Frank Sinatra. This exciting July 7th show features the
alternative electronica/rock/folk guitar virtuosity of Kaki King; the
reggae/post rock musical mojo of Faith; the jazz/rock avant garde
experiments of the Monika H. Band; the
electronica infused funk/rock of OMG; the tantric blues skronk of
Devi; the computer generated animations of Italy based visual artist
Roy Lagrone; the 3d animations of "Harbinger" feature film director
Tim Fielder; and the alien big band arrangements of the MuthaWit
Orchestra. It's quite cool that all musical artists will be playing
their original work as well as a composition from the Frank Sinatra
songbook. The particulars:
