Ladies and Gents, Nomads and Magicians, art appreciators and art creators, friends and passerbys....
Come one come all to another evening of underground art, music, culture, and spontaneous creative combustion. Rising Appalachia will be the happy host of CONCRETE PANDEMONIUM this November 4th at Atlanta's own magestic art space, Eyedrum. For those of you who attended our March cd release party... the vibes will be similar but even more enticing. Think underground gala. Bizzar Bazaar. Poetry hitting the walls like fish scales at a New Orleans market. Fire dancers and fashion shows. Live record spinning and a set of some of OUR newly concocted songs from the road.
A percentage of all proceeds from CONCRETE PANDEMONIUM will go towards the operation and support of the non-profit arts group, Alternate Roots, (www.alternateroots.org) which bridges the gap between art and activism in the South.
A evening of underground music, poetry and culture from the southeast. Hosted by RISING APPALACHIA for the partial benefit of ALTERNATE ROOTS.
On the first Sunday of every month, at 7 p.m., Eyedrum does a show on WREK (91.1 FM / www.wrek.org) that features nuggets from Eyedrum's archive of live performances.
After the show airs "live", you can listen to it via WREK's 7-day archive if you forget to tune in. Here are the direct links to Sunday Special streams: lo-fi or hi-fi. These streaming links from WREK expire 7 days after the show airs on the radio.
But wait, there's more! We now have a podcast available, for those of you who have discovered podcasting. You can also just download the whole show (right click on "download") although be forewarned that the file is over 50 MB in size. These podcast and download links will NOT expire for months to come -- download and listen!
This month we played Plastic People Of The Universe, Kevin Dunn (including a 13 minute interview segment), King Rat, Andy Ditzler and band, Colin Bragg, Alisdair Roberts, Suitcases, AIDS Wolf, Roger Ruzow & Bryan Fieldin, Zepubicle and finally Tatsuya Nakatani. Special thanks go to Robby Kee, Allen Welty Green and Andy Ditzler for providing the material for the show. Have a listen!
