Hi Folks,

After returning from my christmas-home-run I returned and found the city surpising empty :)
Are some of you still here ? :) :) :)

OK I'll head to the M.C. Escher Exhibition tomorrow (way before noon time !) Anybody care to join ?

Further I was looking into the online edition of the Moscow Times but it seems they have stopped (for new year ?) their "what's up" section of Gigs and concerts :( Anybody has any alternative (live music) plans tonite ?

Юрий Каверкин & Nothing Personal / блюз

Юрий Каверкин - блюзмен не по образованию, а по образу и стилю жизни, ему не нужно играть в блюз, он сам и есть блюз!
Вот и публика, и музыканты(наши и заезжие) любят и ценят его за искренность и "настоящесть", за простую и невероятно вкусную игру на гитаре, за добрый нрав, за живой огонь во взгляде, за... да кто ещё знает за что!
А уж когда он начинает петь своим бархатным баритоном - дамы млеют, а мужчины нервно курят в сторонке! :)
...но хватит слов,
вот лучше посмотрите видео из нашего архива
Стоимость входного билета 500 рублей.*
*билет можно обменять в баре на любой напиток стоимостью до 500р

:D in an exhibition !? :D I'm afraid not.
It seems that RL's "research" has pointed you in a slightly misleading direction ;) I'm not a photographer and earning my bucks with a completely different job. So sorry to disappoint you. And if I would be present in THAT exhibition you would have known my name earlier :)

Are you interested in music/arts only? Or consider any activities?
Just in case - next Sunday some people will take the plunge into icy water in Moscow (well, in most parts of Russia I believe). ))

I was joking anyway.
Just wanted to share an exhibition I consider to visit myself, but didn't want to start the new thread, so I'll put it here, maybe someone will fing it interesting too.
It's the "Van Gogh Alive" at Artplay.
Details and some samples of the show can be found here: http://grandeexhibitions.com/traveling-exhibitions/van-gogh-alive/

Wait, wait, wait. What's this about polar dipping? It's on my list. I was going to do it in November/December, but the place we went was closed for renos. Found a little pond near my place with a square of ice cut out, but a big event might be even better...

Gervais

Sure, I couldn't find anything in English, just in a hurry, but I believe there should be info in English speaking sources about tonight.
It's Kreschenie and there will be 50 places organized for those who want to take a plunge.
Here is a link in Russian, it says there will be 3 points even at the Revolution square.
