In short: Born in South East London the same week the Nazis began bombing, Ginger Baker’s first memory was running after a train that carried his father off to death in WWII. From his music to his life, at the expense of family and fortune, Ginger would never be left behind on the tracks again. Though best known for his work with Eric Clapton in Cream and Blind Faith, the world’s greatest drummer did not hit his stride until years later in 1972 when he drove the first Range Rover ever produced from London to Nigeria in pursuit of the African rhythms and musical icon, Fela Kuti. There he found his Mecca of drumming, introducing the African beat and “world music” to the West, years before any other musicians in the field.

In short: Deep in the San Fernando Valley, amidst rows of dilapidated warehouses, was rock n’ roll’s best kept secret: Sound City. America’s greatest unsung recording studio housed a one-of-a-kind console, and as its legend grew, seminal bands and artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Metallica and Nirvana all came out to put magic to tape. Directed by Dave Grohl and featuring interviews and performances from the iconic musicians who recorded some of rock’s greatest albums at the studio, Sound City doesn’t just tell the story of this real-life rock ‘n’ roll shrine, it celebrates the human element of music.

The Black Box Presents - The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs


Location: SICA, 610 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park

Description: Black Box Asbury Park will produce a staged reading of the play, “The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” on First Saturday, February 2nd, at 7pm, at S.I.C.A., 610 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park. “Steve Jobs,” originally conceived and performed at a solo piece by monologist Mike Daisey, will be divided amongst four actors, who will perform it from iPads, ironically. The play exposes the seedy underbelly of the apparently squeaky-clean image of the tech giant—paying particular attention to the effects on the sweat-shop-style laborers who sometimes suffer life-long negative effects from time spent in Apple’s south-east Asian factories. Creator Mike Daisey took the risky step of releasing the play—royalty-free—to be performed, with minimal restriction, in as creative a way as possible, in order to get the message of the play out to the general public. Steve Jobs” is part of Black Box’s fundraising efforts for its summer production of Alexis Kozak’s new comedy, “0 Days Since Last Miracle.” “This is an opportunity for Black Box to sort of reboot itself and really take up its mission of providing support to up-and-coming artists who might be a step away from being professional artists in their own right,” says Cicciatelli. “We are one of the few organizations creating a professional environment where new work can incubate and grow.”

“The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” will be presented at S.I.C.A., 610 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park, on February 2nd, at 7pm. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door or in advance at
