Summer’s winding down. Long live summer! We’re switching things up a tad this Monday! We’re featuring a musical group from North Carolina.
FEATURED ARTISTS: BRIEF AWAKENING is a small tribe of fairy creatures who can only effectively communicate through art, song, and dance. Mandolin, ethereal vocals, synth, piano, avant garde heart drums and harmonious overtones- swirl, bubble,and trail wherever brief Awakening wanders. The Siren that is RYN ARRANTS magically dances with strange synth noises spatially mixed with rhythmic piano. The tiny beast that is KAY FOX PETRUCCI stomps on the kick drum at the same time as flying around on their red dragon mandolin. Together their whipping tendrils of rhythm and harmonic melody build a character of sound that is colorful and masked in emotion and spirituality. They just released their sophomore EP “Excelsior” with Pillow Fort Recording in Asheville, NC. The creatures are tour this Summer 2015. Brief Awakening has been featured live on UnRegular Radio (Boston, MA) , City Wide Blackout (Boston, MA) ,Three Strange Women (Boston, MA), and Daddy O Radio (Spartanburg, SC). check em out at http://www.briefawakening.org
BONUS RUCKUS: The “Wow, that’s some unfortunate poetry I wrote in high school / college” Challenge! BACK TO SCHOOL! You have a few days to check your notebooks for those unfortunate pieces of writing you did back in the day! Any piece of writing that’t just straight up regrettable to you now? Have no fear! We’re putting $25 on the line if you bring the cringe worthiest piece in your back catalogue, you know the one you don’t want your biographer to find. If the show’s outside, we can even burn it so posterity can’t get their grubby digits on it! Don’t have bad poems you wrote back in the day? Write one on the spot and lie to us!
Visual arts will be handled by one (or both) of of our musical guests.
