The Contemporary Jewish Museum recently premiered their exhibition, Seeing Gertrude Stein: Five Stories, illuminating Stein’s life and pivotal role in 20th century art.

To celebrate the inspiring show, Jesse Nathan and Chris Janzen are hosting “Dinner,” a “series of epic poem songs that narrate — with words, jazz, rock and roll, and electronica– a fantastical, salon-like dinner party” with guests like Stein, Virginia Woolf, Bobby Fischer, Michael Jackson, Billie Holiday, Glenn Gould, and other dead greats.

The series of poems, jazz, rock-and-roll, and collages promises a more than exciting evening. Tapas-style food will be available throughout the show.

What: “Dinner” at the Contemporary Jewish Museum
Where: 736 Mission Street
When: Thursday, June 2, 7-11pm, Sunday, June 5, 2011, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Admission: $10
