A month of cabaret, silent film, burlesque & more at HM157

This folks at HM157 In Lincoln Heights are certainly not taking a summer vacation in August. In addition to musical acts, the performance and events space will host silent film screenings, burlesque acts and a cabaret act  as part of HM157’s updated version of the classic variety show. Here’s a sample of this month’s  line up:

  • Silent Film Screening:  The 1927 silent film “The Unknown”  will be screened on Friday, Aug. 19 and will be accompanied by a live score by Cabeza de Vaca Orchestra (shown in the video) and the voice of Nora Keyes. The film will be preceded by a klezmer group and “fire prancing.”  More details.
  • Cabaret: Gabriela Crowe stops by on Saturday, Aug. 20 to deliver her cabaret performance as a “somewhat  fictional diva” in her traveling show, “Summer de Obsèsion y Amor,” that includes flamenco guitarists and soprano singers. “Gabriela recounts the tumult of love with a mix of Latin boleros, opera, and 60s pop, and short but spellbinding tales of love, loss and obsession,” said the show description. More details.
  • Burlesque: Burlesque perfomers Panama Red, Honey Ima Home, and Prix de Beauté (who favors 1920s-style dance)  will take to the stage in an evening line-up that also includes a vaudeville-influenced folk band and the screening. More details.
