On December 4, Arts for Art (the organization that puts on the Vision Festival every year) staged a benefit at the Angel Orensanz Center to raise funds for a new Lower East Side performance space to be called The Under_Line. The room will be underneath Clemente Soto Velez, at 107 Suffolk Street in New York. Performers at the show included Marshall Allen, Cooper-MooreCharles Gayle, Milford Graves, Joe Lovano, Christian McBride, Joe McPhee, William Parker, and more. Here are some videos from the event, shot by Don Mount.
