Matawan Aberdeen Public Library - February 2010

The Matawan Aberdeen Public Library's weekly afternoon film series continues with Inglourious Basterds (1 Feb), Public Enemies (8 Feb), My Sister's Keeper (14 Feb), (500) Days of Summer (22 Feb), and Angels & Demons (28 Feb). Check times and set reminders at EventKeeper.

There will be Music for Black History Month on Wed 10 Feb at 7 pm. The event will feature the Al Wright Unit, with vocals by Ruth Wright, Greg Murphy on keyboard, and Al Wright on drums. The Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation describes them as having [h]armonious rhythms of jazz, be-bop, avant-guarde, blues, swing and progressive. One of the finest jazz bands anywhere, the Al Wright Unit truly lives up to its name. The group has performed in clubs, concert halls, and stadiums in London, Paris, Rome and Mexico City. They have also played at the Newport Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and other clubs throughout the US. Red Bank.com also mentioned their performance last summer at the Dublin House. Register for this event and and set a reminder at EventKeeper. (Rutgers University is hosting a number of Black History Month events this month. Check their Media Relations site for more info.)

Celebrate the Chinese New Year at the library on Sat 20 Feb at 2 pm. Students from the Monmouth Chinese School will bring in the Year of the Tiger (4708) with an afternoon of dance and Chinese yo-yo performances. Register for this event and and set a reminder at EventKeeper. (NJPAC will be hosting two performances of the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company on 13-14 Feb, as well as a lion mask making event for parents and children in a registration-required event before the performance on 13 Feb.)
