The 7th installment of the “genre-bending show” All Together Now (ATN #7) is Saturday,
Sept. 30 at 4pm at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain! ATN is a multidisciplinary event
series that makes space for women, people of color, and LGBT performers in
partnership with allies.
Performing for ATN #7 is an intermingling of new and established acts including poet,
writer, and drag artist Wo Chan, aka “Pearl Harbor”; Boston music icon Tom Bianchi;
Music and Dance collaboration with the Grownup Noise and Amy Cook; and Boston Pop
Rock band Field Day. More information about the artists and series can be found at
ATN nurtures community and collaboration amongst performers. “I had the opportunity
to collaborate with Poor Eliza, because of All Together Now,” said magician Felice Ling.
Poor Eliza, a returning performer to the ATN series, provided musical accompaniment to
Felice’s magic set and collaborated with other artists that same night. Another notable
premier from ATN is “Welcome to the Closet,” a theatre piece by Jenee Halstead and
Mark Lipman. Said Jenee, “We wanted to do something more activist, more message-
oriented than just doing only music.” ATN #7 will introduce a new music and dance
collaboration by The Grownup Noise and Amy Cook.
With support from the Live Arts Boston Grant from The Boston Foundation, All Together
Now #8 will be at Inner Sanctum in Dorchester on November 4th.
