We just found out last night that the Doma Music Series will not go on, having been brought to an untimely end by evil-doers. This is sad Doma, for all of New York City, and for us personally - not only have we thrown in our spare instruments and amplifiers, our pro-bono poster work and our most loved loved ones, but also we really REALLY enjoyed being in the audience every week.
Just imagine, us culture-loving but home-bodied pre-occupied going-out-averse grumps living in this city of great culture but also great crap getting handed a regular series just down the street that is EXTREMELY GOOD ALL OF THE TIME. It's like a tasting menu on a silver tray, lovingly delivered - all we had to do was show up, no decision making required, no sifting or searching, no risk of disappointment. Because unlike so many things in life, we were guaranteed to be satisfied at the very least, sometimes stupefied with pleasure.
All of our hearts are a little bit broken.
Here's a link to an interview given by Ben Perowsky on WBGO, one of the geniuses in the wings (and also most of the time on the stage) of this extraordinary and now defunct experiment, just hours before the gavel fell.
Thanks Doma, and thanks Ben. We loved it.
