Arts for Art responds to the closing of Tonic with a concert series based on Tonic’s cancellations. On seven nights in April and May, musicians who were scheduled to play at Tonic, will now be playing one block east, at the Clemente Soto Velez LES Gallery. The number of venues where this music is consistently presented in Manhattan is deteriorating to a dangerous low. Arts for Art and the Vision Festival will be working with CSV to address this issue by hosting these concerts, as well as seeking a way to continue to present this music on a regular basis. The April schedule follows, and the May concerts will be announced soon. It is imperative to have places where artists of this caliber can be heard in Manhattan on a regular basis. These performances are funded in part by a John Zorn benefit performance.
