    Living Colour’s original lineup — Vernon Reid, Corey Glover, Will Calhoun and Doug Wimbish, who joined the band in 1993 — will release their first new studio album in five years on September 15th on Megaforce Records. The band, who broke big in 1988 with “Cult of Personality,? recorded The Chair In The Doorway, their fifth LP, in the Czech Republic. The album features hard rock, soul and politically charged tracks, and Reid describes it as “the best record we’ve made yet.? A world tour will launch in September.

    The New York 2 New Orleans Coalition cordially invites you to attend:

    Wade in the Water – A Solidarity Jam featuring Living Colour’s Corey Glover + special guests!

    This will be an evening of impeccable musicianship – a night which will make you think hard about the world and your own inner life, while having a stomp down, sweaty good time! All in a community of love and like-minded freedom-fighters. Living Colour’s guitarist Vernon Reid (one of Rolling Stone’s 100 best guitarists of ALL TIME), vocalist and multi-instrumentalist V. Jeffery Smith of The Family Stand, and Dean Bowman, former lead singer of the Screaming Headless Torsos are among the musicians scheduled to appear. On Sunday, 6/28/09 we plan on taking it to church at Temple M. Join us.

    Temple M is possibly Harlem’s best-kept secret, a federal masterpiece of Newport dimension, with a French twist, nestled in historic Hamilton Heights in Harlem. It was built in 1917 from the assemblage of two adjacent Victorian mansions, on the same charming tree-lined street as the Alexander Hamilton Grange. Temple M is now blooming after four years of focused vision and restoration, dedicated to honor a reviving Harlem and the vibrant soul of this building, which is said to have been once a Synagogue, and then a Church. The capacity at Temple M is 200 people, so please don’t risk being turned away at the door. This is a one night only event.

    6:00pm – 10:00pm
    Temple M
    555 West 141st Street
