Happy Ground-hog Day! To absolutely no one’s surprise, Punxsatawney Phil has declared another six weeks of winter– but don’t despair! Come stay warm and catch something great at The Tank. Here’s our guide to how to ward off the winter blues for the next six weeks:

This week: Kick off Black History Month on the 4th with The Reunion, a play about the reunion of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Charlie Parker (through the 14th). Jazz not your thing? Puppet Playlist returns with three days of country-music themed puppetry!

Next week: Take Two, a film/theatre/activism spectacular comes to The Tank starting February 9th. If you’re looking for an early Valentines Day date, might we suggest Homonculus Masked Theatre’s “Songs of Love” on the 13th? With shows at 7:30 and 9:30, you can make those dinner reservations whenever you want.

Week 3: Continuing our Black History Month celebration, Rose “The Real” McCoy opens this week on February 19th, paying tribute to a living legend of soul. On the 20th, catch it and stay for Epic Win Burlesque’s “Holy Sh*t! Batman,” a bawdy belated Valentine to the Caped Crusader.

Week 4: Paradigm Shift is bringing their fantastic feminist lecture/discussion/meet-up series to The Tank on February 23rd. This month, author Jessica Vallenti will discuss “The Purity Myth: How America’s Obsession with Virginity is Hurting Young Women.” On the 28th, join us after brunch for the kick-off of our Reading Between the Lines: African-American Autobiography reading series, made possible by the New York State Council for the Humanities. Spots are free, and we’ll even loan you the books, but space is VERY limited so sign up today!

Week 5: Experimental music fans, rejoice! This week is jam-packed with fantastic shows. On March 2nd, Reynolds/Ingebritsen joins Bang on a Can/Steve Reich ensemble member Todd Reynolds and electronic musician and composer Ryan Ingebritsen for the premier of their interactive and reactive work. On the 4th, check out ClariChaplin, a four clarinet ensemble providing improvised musical melodrama to the silent works of Charlie Chaplin.

Week 6: Ear Heart Music: Makers on March 11th is a fun and informative night with composers engaging in conversation about their work with the audience. If you haven’t been to one of these, yet, you are missing out! On Friday the 12th, join us for our annual St. Purim’s Day bash, as we mash up two of the world’s greatest drinking holidays, Purim and St. Patrick’s Day– for one day, EVERYONE’s JewIrish.

Don’t hide in your burrow (or burrough!) sulking till the flowers bloom– get to The Tank and celebrate the last days of winter with us!
