    Shouting at the Screen with Wyatt Cenac and Donwill
    Back in the days before live-tweeting, the only way to express your thoughts while watching a movie was to yell them out loud to the delight of your friends, and the disgust of the old people two rows in front of you. Join WYATT CENAC (Comedy Central's "The Daily Show") and DONWILL (Tanya Morgan) as they take you back to the 70s and guide you through an evening of the most outrageous blaxploitation movie classics. Each month, Shouting at the Screen will present a handpicked black cinema gem; from Black Shampoo to Blacula, to a bunch of other movies from the seventies that have "black" in the title. Donwill and Wyatt crack wise from the peanut gallery like a non-felt versions of Statler and Waldorf. Get there early to grab a drink while DJ Taras spins, then settle in to hear what these jive-talkin' turkeys have to say.

    DJ Tara
    DJ Tara
    Absorbing the sounds of New York since her birth in Brooklyn, Tara spins a collage of sounds that captures the eclectic vibe of modern New York life.

    Having performed at diverse and unconventional venues around New York City, Tara is always eager to find new and exciting crowds to spin for. Early on in her DJ career, Tara realized disk jockeying is more than just playing a mix of records; it is a matter of building trust between herself and the crowd and sharing the knowledge and love the she has for the music and the feelings it projects onto the listeners. The crowd trusts Tara to become part of another great night in their lives, and she returns that favor by giving them a taste of the familiar as well as something new that may be something they have never realized was needed or missed in their musical memory.
