1. New York based photographer Matthu Placek, hosted his 30th birthday on November 17th 2009 at The Box with a downtown line up of the who's who of New York performance art. Headlining the night was none other than Precious star, Gabourey Sidibe's mother, Alice Tan Ridley, who belted out soul and brought the house down!

    Matthu has focused his work in and around the performing and fine art communities so it is fitting that he should call upon the numerous talents he's met during his 12 years in NYC. Hosted by comic genius Amber Martin and her full vocal range she introduced such artists as Scott Matthew of Shortbus, recent winner of the 2009 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Anthony Roth Costanzo, Fischerspooner's Casey Spooner performing 2 never before heard songs from his forth coming solo album and last but not least Visionaire Co-Founder James Kaliardos performed his first jazz number on stage for the birthday boy.
