Thursday Night, December 17, 7:30pm

as we celebrate Phil Ochs' 75th birthday with an evening of song and memories in Kew Gardens, NY.

Fifty years ago, Phil played at a coffehouse called The Interlude Cafe. The venue is now called Odradeks Coffee House. Joel Landy will host an evening there remembering the life and music of one of the 1960s most memorable songwriters, activists and performers. Guest artists will be there to share songs and stories, but the evening will be made special by audience memories and stories as well. 
I hope you join us for a special evening.

It is FREE to the public.

Odradeks is located at 

82-60 Austin Street, Kew Gardens, NY

right next to the LIRR train station

Here is a link to the Facebook event page.

And here is a flyer to print out and distribute.


Solidarité pour toujours!

Recent news stories from our streets and across the sea remind us how grim our task as compassionate human beings can sometimes appear. 
Don't lose heart. Remember, you have a voice and you are not alone. Find your friends.
Count your blessings. Transcend the ugliness with your creativity and your love.

Get your rest.  Stay healthy.  Stay strong.  We need you.  Let's get to work together!

In Solidarity and Spirit     ~  joel

the Peoples' Voice Cafe in NYC.
I thought it would be most appropriate to sing a song written by Matt Jones.

The Best of 2014


December 12, 2014 at the
in Manhattan

I was featured at this showcase in NYC. The night before the House of Representatives voted for the bill that will fund and keep our government running. Republicans stuck goodies for the banking industry in there at the 11th hour written by their friends at CitiGroup. Enough Democrats voted for it to pass. There was other stuff in that bill too that the Senate passed and the President signed in the days that followed.
I am still livid. I took my energy about it and my attitude to the stage and began my set with the video to the right. -->

December 15, 2014 at the
UTES Got Talent at New Utrecht High School
song: "When I Was Young" by Matt Jones

Matt Jones devoted his life to the struggle of social justice in this country. Some time after the 1960s he articulated what we all now know - that the fight for freedom and equality has not ended at all. His song frames this stark perception vividly.
