A Two-Night Anniversary Party with Citizen Cope at Terminal 5

October 15th, 2014

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Clarence Greenwood has been doing business as Citizen Cope since the ’90s. But after his major-label debut on Dreamworks in 2002, Cope bought out of his contract and self-produced the follow-up, the eclectic The Clarence Greenwood Recordings (stream it below), filled with roots, rock, reggae, dub and hip-hop. Now a decade later, Citizen Cope (above, doing a solo rendition of “Sideways” live in the Bing Lounge) celebrates its 10th anniversary with full-band performances of the album in its entirety, plus a second set of favorites. And in New York City, it’s a two-night party, on Friday and Saturday at Terminal 5. (And it’s for a good cause with $1 of each ticket sold going to Turnaround Arts to purchase musical instruments for middle schoolers in Lame Deer, Mont.—a community on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. Lame Deer is part of Turnaround Arts, a President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities program that uses arts education to help students succeed.)
