News Ethan Lipton and his Orchestra play Marlboro, February 25

MARLBORO, VT - (February 15, 2011) - Ethan Lipton and his Orchestra will be playing at Marlboro College on Friday, February 25 at 8:00pm, in Ragle Hall. Marlboro senior Sari Brown will be performing an opening set with her band, The Colortones.

Ethan Lipton and his tongue-in-cheek-named "Orchestra" have garnered a following in New York City's hippest clubs that earned them "Best Lounge Act" from New York magazine in 2009.  They have released four albums of music, including 2010's "Honker,"that NPR's Mallory Kasdan calls, "twisted, sophisticated, schleppy and sad all at once," and have  been praised by Time-Out New York , the New York Times, and NPR for their "funny-miserable take on life through jazzy, brass-festooned songs" (Time-Out New York).

Songwriting began as a secondary vocation for Ethan Lipton, a Brooklyn native and well-respected playwright. He was the resident playwright for the Los Angeles-based Buffalo Nights Theater Company and in 2008 was selected to be part of the New York Public Theater's Emerging Writer's Group. Since joining forces with Eben Levy (guitar), Ian Riggs (bass) and Vito Dieterle (saxophone), Lipton has gained prominence as a musician with his jazz-lounge act and has played all over New York, Los Angeles, and the Northeast.

Tickets will be available for sale at the door. General admission is : $10. The show is free  general admission available at the door; free for students, faculty and staff (with ID).
