Above the Law: Kids Puttin' on the Ritz

On February 25th, 2011, the Clocktower Gallery and ARTonAIR.org presented The Kids Puttin’ On The Ritz, a 1940s-themed ball with performances by the Brooklyn rock and roll band The So So Glos and the Fred Astaire Dance Studio’s ballroom dancers Misha Zharinov and Galina Detkina. The punk-inspired So So Glos performed songs from several albums including their recent Low Black Chain Shift, as well as a special waltz and fox-trot for a crowd of two hundred.

Organized by the Clocktower's Curator of Performance and Installation Joe Ahearn, Above The Law is a performance and installation series highlighting young and emerging artists and musicians. Titled in reference to the various legal offices and agencies that occupy the floors in the Clocktower’s City-owned building, Above The Law challenges preconceived notions about pop and avant garde art and music by featuring artists, bands, and performers that draw from both traditions.
