Spectrum. Spectrum’s mission is to foster innovation and virtuosity in the arts.


Spectrum is a technology-intensive site for innovative music, multimedia and art. We have comfortable furniture and a Steinway D piano that has been carefully maintained since it was purchased new in 2010. We have a professional, 5.1-surround system as well as a more-advanced, ExFi (extreme fidelity) sound system with components designed and built by our Chief Science Officer Lawrence de Martin. As of April 2014, we also have a decent gallery space for displaying art. Practical information – please read before calling: Tickets are purchased at the door. Please note that Spectrum by day is the office for two biotechnology companies. We generally have refreshments available. Audience members (again) are admonished not to bring beverages.

Rio Sakairi: Cultivating a Small Space for Big Talent

Furnished with an old sofa and some folding chairs facing the small stage, The Jazz Gallery is quiet and empty except for Sakairi, her six year old son and eight year old daughter playing in the around the chairs, and the two interns, men in their twenties who enter with acoustic guitars on their backs. As the artistic director, she runs the one room performance space on Broadway and 27th street almost single handedly. Though it is quiet during the day, three nights a week it turns into a nonprofit performance space bustling with musicians and an audience of Gallery members, who pay $75 a year for discounted tickets to all the shows, and visitors. Originally from Ibaraki, Japan, Sakairi was introduced to classical music at a young age. Instead she went into business. Their professional paths crossed in 2000. The Secret Theatre. Calendar.

NYC's Legendary Wetlands Preserve Rock Club Forced to Close Its Doors After Almost 13 Years (NY Rock)

After close to thirteen years at 161 Hudson Street in TriBeCa, the gentrification of the Manhattan loft set has caught up with the venerable club. The building is being sold and turned into residential condos and the venue is being converted into office and lobby space. Since opening on Valentine's Day in 1989, Wetlands achieved national prominence as the home of the burgeoning jam-band scene through the emergence of Dave Matthews Band, Phish, Blues Traveler, Widespread Panic, Spin Doctors, and the many other improv-oriented rockers who performed regularly at the venue in the '90s.
