GOLDFEATHER is a Brooklyn-based folk music band-meets contemporary classical ensemble, with a dash of cabaret for flavor. Led by native Minnesotan singer and violinist Sarah Goldfeather, Goldfeather's music has been described as "full of light and life" (The Current, Minnesota Public Radio), "distinctive...whimsical" (The Boot) "poignant...striking and laudable" (The Deli Magazine), with "lush, dynamic collective of sound," "striking intensity" (Elmore Magazine) and "astonishing musicianship" (Impose Magazine), and "[the] most musically talented ensemble ever" (Pen's Eye View). Goldfeather's music explores unusual melodies garnished with three-part harmonies against a rich indie-folk-pop backdrop. Sarah and her fearless conservatory-trained five-piece band - Dylan McKinstry (mandolin/voice), Katie Martucci (guitar/voice), Nathan Koci (accordion/banjo/voice) and Pat Swoboda (double bass) - have collective musical backgrounds in almost every genre imaginable, all of which factor into Goldfeather's unique sound. Performance highlights include the 2016 Ecstatic Music Festival and Mata Interval Series in New York, which was featured on WQXR, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago presented by Eighth Blackbird, the Times Two Series in Boston, and a monthly residency at Barbés in Brooklyn. Goldfeather's first full-length album, Patchwork Quilt, was released in September 2016, and they put out a 2014 EP, Goldfeather (released under their previous moniker, Sarah Goldfeather).
Frontman and songwriter Pete Lanctot leads his amorphous cast of Stray Dogs with avant garde fiddler, Ginger Dolden. Pete Lanctot and the Stray Dogs takes form as an acoustic duo, as an electric five piece, and everything in between. Lanctot’s narrative songwriting has been likened to artists such as The Carter Family, Townes Van Zandt and “a backwoods Nick Cave,” and is firmly rooted in blues, folk, country, and experimental music, offering pinhole views into the lives of characters that range from real to mythological.

EVERYONE IS AN ASTRONAUT by Corey Pajka
In 1986, a young man obsessed with space sets his sights on Earth. What he sees is his life in ruins and his family in fragments. He sets about trying to make things right, but when a space shuttle in Florida explodes just moments after takeoff, its a sign that his best laid plans are doomed to failure. The universe is indifferent, but maybe the order is in the chaos.
DEMYSTIFYING GOVERNMENT: EXECUTIVE SHENANIGANS
We all know this country is a 🗑🔥 right now. But how did it get this way, and what hope do we have for it to change? Honestly, how does the government even work??
Demystifying Government is a series of talks to try to answer those questions — for all of us who may have forgotten a thing or two from civics class. The first three programs will cover our three branches, starting all the way at the top. We'll have short clever presentations and then a moderated conversation, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
🗣 Comedian, podcaster and political commentator Ben Kissel on former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, realignment of foreign policy regarding Russia, and the identity crisis it's caused within both parties.
🗣 Hunter College adjunct political science professor, PhD candidate, and former journalist Sari Krieger on executive orders and the powers of the president.
🗣 Administrative lawyer Adam Devine on regulations vs. statutes, and the surprising (and surprisingly complicated) amount of power that administrative agencies and departments have to implement laws.
🗣 Policy wonk, political research director, and writer Gregory Joseph on the role of the press in a ~normal~ White House vs. the one we have now.
🗣 Entrepreneur, data dork, and campaign super-volunteer Elizabeth Haynes on what "checks and balances" really means — in other words, how to use Congress and the Judiciary to get what you want when the Executive blows it.
The panel will be moderated by comedian, producer, and lawyer Seena Jon, who is excited to tell us all how awesome and important it is to watch C-SPAN.
There will also be 🍪cookies🍪! Glitter Sweets kitchen, founded by a social-justice pro, will be selling resistance-themed hearts and chocolate sandwich cookies, and each cookie sold will generate $1 toward a local nonprofit TBD (based on whatever issue Tr*mp is being the worst about that week).
