If you have been visiting this website you know that I have been given creative license to create an artistic activist atmosphere at The Yippie Museum Café. I have been working at it since September of 2007, and the results so far have been encouraging. I want to thank the artists who have participated thus far.

Our nights at the YIP are more than about music. It is about nurturing a safe and fun place for artists and activists to meet, perform and synergize. The calendar found here indicates music, and I love the music, but the larger picture is music and conversation and energy and progressive thinking. And action!  That is the work we are doing.

You can look to this space for artists and events appearing at the YIP.  In the meantime, check this website and come on down during the performance season (October through June) and join your voice and energy. If you are a performing artist with something political to say be sure to introduce yourself. You can also contact me via email at joellandy@yahoo.com.




September 7
Friday evening, September 7th the soul of the 60s lived again in Greenwich Village. The spirits of Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Baez and Dave Van Ronk (Dennis Heller, Joel Landy, Anne Price and Steve Suffet) gathered again on Bleecker Street to play and sing and remind us all what the Village scene was all about.
