Sunday, Oct. 28 – Both Sides Now: A Tribute to Joni Mitchell
Timucua White House
2000 S. Summerlin Ave.
Like one of Gov. Mitt Romney’s binders, iconoclastic musician Joni Mitchell is full of women: hippie folk-singer, avant-garde artist, Canadian prairie girl, pop star, jazz noodler. True only to her own artistic desires and seemingly immune to any sort of molding by the music industry, she’s become an icon for those who prize nonconformity in their musical heroes. Performing artist Jeremy Seghers, who recently relocated to Brooklyn from Orlando, presents Both Sides Now, the latest in his series of tributes to those musical individualists – earlier tributes included Nina Simone, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen – an intimate evening at Timucua White House with Seghers, Sarah Purser, Matthew Mendel and Benoit Glazer performing their interpretations of their favorite Mitchell songs. (Pro tip: Arrive very early if you want a seat; Blue Valentines, the Tom Waits program, was packed to the rafters.) Seghers admits that his favorite Joni song is “A Case of You”; me, I’d have to go with “You Turn Me On I’m a Radio.” Attend and you might hear your own favorite – or discover it. – Jessica Bryce Young
