AT THE MUSIC ROOM: 327 EDGEWOOD, SE ATL, GA 30312
(404) 343-4404


MATTA GAWA

is an improvising drums+guitar duo hailing from Washington DC. Building with time and texture, their music is deeply connected to the methods and spirit of jazz, while retaining the electric backbone of creative rock music. Loosely translated, MATTA GAWA means river of moments- an apt description for their spontaneously composed flow of singing guitars, free-form drumming, howling feedback, sub-blasting bass, stagger-...stepped odd-time signatures, polyrhythmic beatrock + guitar solos.


Both founder members of DCís New Atlantis Collective of musicians, drummer Sam Lohman has also worked with early NYHC legends Sheer Terror, the Radon Collective, Steve Mackay of the Stooges, and the Acid Mothers Temple. Guitarist Ed Ricart works with Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Peter Brotzmann, Herb Robertson, Jason Ajemian, and members of avant rock legends Fugazi, Pinback, Stinking Lizaveta, and the Swirlies. Together, the duo also perform in various larger New Atlantis ensembles, augmented by Steve Swell, Roy Campbell Jr, Vattel Cherry, Andrew Barker, and Aaron Martin... Check out the forthcoming LP, 'Why Cheat Yourself' on Not Two Records!

BUOYANT SEA

is an electric mandolinist heavy dance beat one man band project of Davitt Terrell. Currently in Philadelphia, Buoyant Sea mixes quirky loops with classic beats combined with an high pitched jangly distorted mandolin creating a sound that has been compared to Snakefinger meets Dead Milkmen. Live he is full of eccentricity, energy, and positive attitude.

Ian Deaton and Pony Bones open.




Reynoldstown space gets closer to reality February 24, 2011
7:00PM - - -
Eyedrum has found a space in Reynoldstown that we hope will be our new home. It's much larger than our old place at 290 MLK Dr., with the potential to accommodate artist studios, more room for performance and rehearsal, and lots of flexible room for exhibition.

The building is zoned for multifamily use but has never served as housing. The neighborhood, the neighborhood association, the building owners, and City Councilperson Natalyn Archibong all stand in support! This week we're on the agenda of the Neighborhood Planning Unit N meeting (7 PM Thursday, Feb 24, Little 5 Points Community
Center) to ask for their expressed support. With all these folks behind us, we'll go to the city zoning department and request permission to use the building under the old Industrial designation. So with any luck at all, we can start making the place usable and get Eyedrum's calendar filled.
