Do This: Long Island Concerts & Events November 5 – 11

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York 50th Anniversary of Jefferson Airplane & The Grateful DeadSo everybody knows that when the Jefferson Airplane shed its wings in the 1970s, the Starship took off into the pop stratosphere with a stellar overdrive fueled by arena rock blasted at full throttle. The ole hippie-dippy psychedelic sound wasn’t quite left behind in the rush from its San Francisco roots, but the band headed in a different direction that had harder metallic edges than it ever had. Going further was always the destination of this ship. And what a long strange trip it’s been on—and it’s still going strong. Climb on board and listen to the music of the stars. Opening the show are Jazz Is Dead and Quicksilver Messenger Service. NYCB Theatre at Westbury, 960 Brush Hollow Rd., Westbury. venue.thetheatreatwestbury.com $49.50. 8 p.m. November 5.TheebDirector Naji Abu Nowar’s powerful and assured directorial debut, set in the land of Lawrence of Arabia, is a wondrous “Bedouin Western” about a boy who, in order to survive, must become a man and live up to the name his father gave him. In 1916, while war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb in a traditional Bedouin community that is isolated by the vast, unforgiving desert. The brothers’ quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them to a water well located along the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. So as not to dishonor his recently deceased father, Hussein agrees to lead them on the long and treacherous journey. The young, mischievous Theeb secretly chases after his brother, but the group soon find themselves trapped amidst threatening terrain riddled with Ottoman mercenaries, Arab revolutionaries, and outcast Bedouin raiders. The director will be on hand to discuss the screening at this special preview.
