Monday May 7th! ANJIMILE sings the Gerund! Plus The “Tweet Tweet!” writing challenge!

FEATURED ARTIST: ANJIMILE is a first-generation Malawian-American who grew up in the suburbs of Richardson, Texas. Their experiences with racism, homophobia and xenophobia in the deep south form the basis of their radical queer politics. The crux of their musical output is a gooey center of emotionality and tenderness informed by the power of their intersectional identities. A staple in the Boston indie music scene since their debut EP ‘In the Garden’ in 2012, Anjimile’s eclectic forays into ambient folk, indie rock and electro pop are bound together by an incredibly haunting and otherworldly singing voice. Anjimile is currently signed to Human Nature Records, a Boston-based independent label, and two tracks (“Golden Hands” and “To Meet You There”) from their most recent EP ‘Good Boy’ were featured in the independent film Anything (2017) starring John Carroll Lynch, Maura Tierney and Matt Bomer. Their musical influences include Sufjan Stevens, Lauryn Hill, Born Ruffians, Radiohead, TV on the Radio, and Real Estate.  Anjimile identifies as queer/trans/gender non-conforming and uses they/them or he/him pronouns. check out some tunes at http://www.anjimile.com/

BONUS RUCKUS: “Tweet Tweet!” Writing Challenge! We stole this from NARK LIZZARD (thanks for stepping into host the last couple weeks, luv ya!), who, we believe, stole it from the internet! We got a lotta show for you this Monday, so let’s keep the ruckus short, like 140 characters short! Your job as contestant, write a life changing poem using 140 characters (includes exclamation points!!!! so be careful!). Bonus claps for hashtags involving some of your favorite gerundisms! Best tweet gets a neat prize (had to go with the rhyme scheme, the prize is a drink on us!). CHAD JULIAN is our favorite comic-book seller in town and a fine artist! He might totally capture your aura cartoon style! Buy ART! Rumor has it Alex will be back to host the first half (hooooooray….. i guess…) The band will be back, the weather might even allow us to return to the great outdoors! Patio anybody? Who’s got snacks?
