May the 4th is Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you, get it?!) and for music lovers such as myself, May the 4th was the night of a rare intimate performance by Erik Hassle on the roof top of The Standard Hotel in New York’s East Village.  Erik Hassle comes from Sweden and if you aren’t already a fan, you will be by the end of this article.

This was the backdrop on an extremely rare perfect weather night in New York City on May 4, 2015 as an intimate crowd of less than 100 people gathered to hear Erik Hassle perform an 8 song set that included his new single “No Words.”

As you are about to see and hear, Erik Hassle’s voice is so soulful and his dance moves are infectious.  Rather than trying to describe how awesome Erik Hassle is, just click play and watch his great new song, “No Words.”  I would also like you to pay close attention at the 2:12 mark, when Erik spotted me in the crowd and sang straight into my camera.  It’s epic!!!

You can think of this sculpture as a teaser for Kenny’s upcoming exhibition at Paul Kasmin Gallery entitled “Kolors,” which opens on April 4, 2013.

New York has been very lucky these last few years to get so much great public art from Kenny Scharf.  There’s a new mural on Washington and 13th Street across the street from the Standard Hotel.  See it while supplies last!
