People leave work early so they can get home to watch The Beat with Ari Melber on MSNBC. He explains politics, the law—and hip-hop—like nobody else on TV. Ari will explore the world of cable news and how he manages to keep it all straight when events are cascading around us minute by minute. And that includes the names of all the Russian oligarchs. Ari will be joined by author of Zucked, Roger McNamee—discussing his "superb" (New York Times) book about the dangers of Facebook. Meet hip-hop artist Tee Grizzley and hear film and TV star Peter Riegert read fiction by Shalom Auslander (Foreskin’s Lament, Hope: a Tragedy). Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA Ann Temkin will explain how a painting gets to the museum and it isn’t by Uber. Jazz legend Jay Leonhart leads the 1-Train Band.
In Your Face–New York captures the spirit, the energy, the music, noise and creativity of this capital of the world. It’s a live performance extravaganza and also a video/audio podcast that features the best of New York’s actors, writers, musicians and more.
