Burrowing into liminal space, that forgotten zone between the organic and the inorganic, reality and surreality, that's the place Bluetech calls home. Boundless cosmic beats stretch out across sprawling ambient soundscapes. Melodic strings pluck and shimmer; echoing voices expand and contract over the electronic landscape. You can't pin down Evan Bartholomew, and there's no sense trying.Over a decade of releases has brought Bluetech's music to fans of downtempo, future bass, and progressive electronic music, rife with emotional intent, and polyrhythmic percussion. From his homebase in the far-flung islands of Hawai'i, Bartholomew transcends the constructs normally associated with a calculated "electronic artist," pursuing music with meaning and purpose. Choosing to spend his off-stage time meticulously tweaking precision productions, building the solar-powered studio of his dreams, running his music and arts webzine Nomadculture.net, or putting in time on his Critical Beats imprintdedicated to preserving and protecting Earth's remaining rainforestsEvan shirks preconceptions of fellow superstar producers.

Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, Son Lux "works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams" (Pitchfork). With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones (June 23, 2015) is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members' unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: Lorde, Beyonc producer Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.

Sensuality Circle and Authentic Sexuality Play Party ~A Celebration of Open Hearts, Ecstatic Pleasure, and Erotic Fun!~ Our passion is to provide a place where you will feel safe to show us who you truly are and what you really want. We want to give you the tools to connect with other people in a way that nourishes you mentally,physically and emotionally. We start, as we do each time, making love before the party in energetic and physical ways. From how we relate to each other as a team, to cleaning the floors and lighting the candles, the space is set with intention and desire above all else. In THIS place there will be love and acceptance. We invite each person to set aside all expectations, and open their hearts to others. How do strangers come together and do this? How does one open themselves up to the possibility of pleasure without expectation? Self-knowledge comes first. What do I want? What will I offer? Our games teach you how to ask and respond, how to negotiate contact, and how to keep yourself and your partners safe. At the Start We begin the gathering with an opening ritual of intention and attention. Participants are invited to experience themselves and each other through all of their Senses; Sight, Sound, Smell, Touch, Taste, and Conceptual Thought. We play with the energies of yin and yang (think giver and receiver, generator and container) Magically, a room full of strangers become intimate companions. Intimacy = Into Me See From your tender heart’s longing to your most voracious desire, all of You is welcome. Your vulnerability, your hunger, your strength, your joy. Come and experience the possibilities for love and connection in a judgment-free, safe, and honoring environment. And then we PARTY! After the opening ritual and playshop, you are invited to stay for the free Authentic Sexuality Play Party. With spaces set up for cuddling, massage, bdsm play and, yes, sex, you can go where your imagination, desires and the consent of your co-conspirators lead you. This is an alcohol and drug free event. Be Here when you are Here. There will be some refreshments provided, please bring something delicious, food or non-alcoholic beverage to share with the group. Who Comes to These Things? People of all genders, races, ages and orientations. Singles, Couples, Threesomes, and Moresomes. The adventurous and the shy, the experienced and the new. Individuals who understand nudity and sexual expression will be occurring. The most important thing is that you be willing to take responsibility for yourself, your communication and your experiences, and Honor other people in Their uniqueness. Do I Have to DO anything? We have two rules. 1) Don’t do anything you don’t want to do and 2) Do do what gets your panties wet. So follow your excitement and don’t go beyond your boundaries. Nothing is expected and watching is considered a valid way to participate. Will There be People for Me to Play With? We don’t know. Since gender and orientation are so fluid, we no longer “gender balance.” If you come with an open mind and no expectations, it is possible to walk away with many great and intimate experiences that may not look like what you planned. A deep conversation, soulful gazing, the opportunity to share loving touch with someone outside your normal play parameters, nurturing that is not genitally focused, all of these things can matter as much as “sex,” if you let them. For more information, read this Is this an Orgy? Nope. We trust that you can find places to have sex on your own. The Circle and Party are an opportunity to embody several tantric principles (thank you Rudy Ballantine). Come experience the Healing Power of Pleasure, and treat Life as an Experiment. We are consciously providing you with a laboratory to grow, learn, love and have FUN! In Closing A half hour prior to the end, we gather back together to share our joys and experiences. Address will be sent to registered participants. Sign up today. *************************DISCLAIMER************************* BY PURCHASING THIS TICKET(S) YOU ARE ACCEPTING ALL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR YOUR ACTIONS DURING THE EVENT.  THE FACILITATORS RESERVE THE RIGHT TO EXCLUDE ANY INDIVIDUALS FOR VIOLATIONS OF ETIQUETTE OR CONSENT.

Participants will learn to create rich surfaces inspired by the natural world. Some techniques that will be demonstrated are brushing kohiki slip on clay slabs and stretching the slabs to crack and distort the surfaces, applying a coating of clay mixed with sand onto the surface of wheel thrown pieces and then altering them, and mixing air and other materials into the clay body and then tearing off the clay and/or cutting with a wire to create the shapes. Akira will also share his experience and knowledge in a discussion of the Japanese aesthetic. Participants will gain insight in finding the beauty in imperfection, the meaning of "wabi-sabi" and the importance of "ma" -- the space in between. Level: All Levels Tuition: $595 + $60 Lab Fee

THE IMMERSION Back by popular demand this event is an unforgettable, immersive mystery dinner experience that takes you back to Asheville, 1929. Dinner, music, singing performances, fine acting, a grand dinner and unexpected twist awaits as dinner guests. THE SETUP It is September 1929 and guests at Lex 18 await the arrival of the evening's honoree, native son Thomas Wolfe. Returning for a brief visit to his childhood home, Thomas has been invited to the former Eureka Saloon, now Lex 18, to dine with guests and perform a reading from the manuscript of his new book Look Homeward, Angel. The manuscript is scheduled to be mailed to the publisher this week, so this is a truly private advance reading. The intimate dinner, complimented by a visiting pianist, takes a dark and scandalous turn. Multiple motives, suspicions and chaos ensues. Fortunately, there is a special guest who can solve the mystery and return peace to the evening while revealing a shocking future.. The proprietress of the Eureka Saloon has made great plans for her guests' enjoyment including securing bootlegged wine, beer and whisky, a four-course dinner affair and a hired jazz musician from Washington, DC to hear and see the young novelist he admires. After Mr. Wolfe's reading of a rather spicy excerpt from his "tell-all" novel, a lovely dining experience accompanied by live music and song appears to unfold seamlessly. Suddenly, however, in the midst of all this enjoyment the evening takes a dark turn. A deceptive plot, prickled with mysterious motives and unwanted suspicions, is revealed in the chaos. Luckily, a visiting guest in attendance can turn the evening's digression and resolve the accusations and defensive posturing. While reluctant to step into the role, he may open a bigger can of worms than anyone has bargained for. STYLE AND ENGAGEMENT This uniquely designed dinner experience blends historical facts, setting and personages with fictionalized events that are both fun and fascinating. With an integrated cast of 12 characters, guests' interactions and involvement can range from fully engaged mystery sleuths to casual reserved observers. The only instruction is to play your authentic self. DRESS There is one guest requirement which is to dress for dinner in the style of the 1920s and 1930s. If your closet does not offer the option, we do ask our diners to dress semi formal; jacket and tie for men and cocktail attire for women. A week prior, guests will receive a mailed invitation from the proprietress of the Eureka Saloon (present-day LEX 18) providing directions and information detailing the evening's event. THE MENU & TIMELINE COCKTAIL RECEPTION 6:30 - 7:00PM Your Choice of: French 75: Calls for gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and some bubbles. OR Slippery Slope: Made with Dewar's Scotch, Orange Peel Moonshine, lime and lemon juice and a hint of simple syrup. FIRST COURSE Artisan cheese, marcona almonds, apple butter, French pickled cornichons, fresh baked bread SECOND COURSE Spring salad, carrots, red peppers, sunflower seeds, raisins with a lemon champagne vinaigrette dressing THIRD COURSE CHOICES Scallops, wilted spinach, roasted nuts over Angel Hair pasta OR Lamb ragu, wilted spinach, roasted nuts over Angel Hair pasta OR Tomato, mushroom, wilted spinach, roasted nuts over Angel Hair pasta FOURTH COURSE Chocolate chocolate torte $55.00 TICKETS INCLUDE: Cocktail tasting Four-course dinner Live Music and Musical Performances Elementary Watson! An Immersive Mystery Dinner Experience Additional Alcohol; Sales Tax; Gratuity Charge are not included and will be presented at the end of show. LOOK HOMEWARD, ANGEL, published in 1929 A legendary author on par with William Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Wolfe published Look Homeward, Angel, his first novel, in 1929. About a young man's burning desire to leave his small hometown and tumultuous family in search of a better life, the work gave proof of his genius and launched a powerful legacy. The novel follows the trajectory of Eugene Gant, a brilliant and restless young man whose wanderlust and passion shape his adolescent years in rural North Carolina. Wolfe said that Look Homeward, Angel is "a book made out of my life." His largely autobiographical story about the quest for a greater intellectual life has resonated with and influenced generations of readers, including some of today's most important novelists. Rich with lyrical prose and vivid characterizations, this twentieth-century American classic will capture the hearts and imaginations of every reader.

Morgan Geer’s Drunken Prayer
http://drunkenprayer.com/

Morgan Christopher Geer, who performs solo and with band as Drunken Prayer, splits residence between Asheville, NC and Portland, OR. KCRW, LA calls Drunken Prayer, “a quintessential slice of backwoods poetry”. The Portland Mercury describes Geer as “the bastard child of Tom Waits and Merle Haggard”. Morgan is also the current studio and touring guitar player for Bloodshot Records artists, Freakwater.

He is the son of a New Orleans folk singer and a California mushroom farmer. His wit comes easy, in whispers, shouts and sneers. He’s a showman–“a barking ringleader with chops between Tom Waits and the Butthole Surfers’ Gibby Haynes” (Willamette Week, Portland, OR).

Geer, who grew up in Black Mountain, NC, wrote many of Drunken Prayer’s first compositions while wood-shedding on a farm in Sonoma County, California. His records are a dark mix of blues, country, traditionals and reluctant pop music; dynamic, with “an almost inculpable sincerity” (Mountain Xpress, Asheville, NC). His swampy crooning vocals and angular, percussive guitar style create a nicely creepy backdrop for rakish, playful stories of unironic and eternal themes.

In February, 2012 Drunken Prayer became Portland based Fluff and Gravy Records’ inaugural artist with the release of Into the Missionfield. Since then Geer’s records have been an ambitious and critical success; the Portland Mercury going so far as to declare Geer “Warren Zevon’s medium, showing him the world from the great beyond.” On Drunken Prayer’s latest effort, The Devil & The Blues (August, 2015), Geer crafts another journey through America’s weird musical heritage. With help from members of The Sadies, Reigning Sound, and Freakwater, the sounds on this record are bluesy and psychedelic; the arrangements as loose and buoyant as a New Orleans Jazz funeral. The lyrics are as sweet as they are damning, offering a window into the mind of Morgan Geer. The view that it affords is at once unsettling and familiar.

Geer’s previous band, The Unholy Trio of Asheville, NC, also featured members of The Reigning Sound and Freakwater. On their 5th Year Anniversary compilation Bloodshot Records featured the Trio’s devilish version of Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise“.

The Good Old Boyz
https://www.facebook.com/The-Good-Old-Boyz-99744805547/
If heaven is anything like Dixie, then you’re gonna wanna go hear the Good Old Boyz before you die, just so you can be in the know when you stroll through those antebellum pearly gates and hear them playing that great jamboree in the sky. Fronted by Blue Rag veterans Aaron “Woody” Wood and Scott Sharpe, and supported by rhythm rebels David Connor Jones and Richard Foulk, The Good Old Boyz come together to form Asheville’s premiere Honky Tonk band, bringing old school country fans some of the finest renditions of the Grand Old Opry and The Outlaws, from the likes of Hank & Lefty to Waylon & Willie & the Boys. Never the same show twice, always keeping it tight but loose, these Boyz like to take it way out there before bringing it all back home with a shot of rock and roll. Come git you some before they’re gone again on the lost highway.

8pm doors, 9pm show. ALL AGES. Standing room only. $7 ADV, $10 day of show.

Atlanta-based alt-rock group VON GREY is anything but a stereotypical quartet. Made up of classically trained sisters, Annika 19, Fiona 18, Petra 16, and Kathryn 21 – VON GREY takes a multi-instrumental approach to deliver ethereal, but raw, electronic based alternative anthems driven by unapologetically pop hooks. The band’s signature blend of classical instrumentation and thought provoking lyrics has been critically acclaimed with AXS.com writing, “VON GREY has made a huge impact on the music world with their multi-instrumental approach and hauntingly infectious songwriting.”

VON GREY has played nearly 300 shows including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and SXSW and performed on David Letterman and Conan O’Brien. The band is currently in the studio writing and recording new material for their forthcoming late 2016 release.

Spend the afternoon with Asheville Folk and the Persona Creative team for this crash course in all things social media. You’ll have a blast as you work on some solo writing exercises, brainstorm with a small group, and get hands on with easy phone photography tips and tricks. The afternoon will be broken up into four mini sessions, including: Social Media Strategy, Determining Your Identity, Kickass Copy and Engaging Hashtags, and Making the Most of Phone Photography. We’ll spend time talking about Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more. This course is perfect for creative entrepreneurs, small business owners and their staff, and bloggers - there’s something for you to learn regardless of your level of experience! And it'll be a hell of a lot of fun.  Session 1: Stop, Strategize Figuring out where you should be active online and what you should be posting can be a total pain in the ass. During this session you’ll spend some time working through question prompts, solo writing, and large group discussion to determine the best platforms for you, your brand, and your business. We’ll talk about the benefits to each platform and how to make the most out of what you post. Session 2: Determining Your #Aesthetic  So, you know where you want to post, now it’s time to figure out what to put online. During this session we’ll talk about the importance of having a consistent visual identity online and a voice that matches the clients you’re trying to reach. Working on your own, you’ll spend time coming up with the aesthetic you want to use and the way you want to speak to your fans. We'll talk about post themes and content planning. You’ll also spend some time sharing ideas with a partner. Session 3: Kickass Copy and WTF are Hashtags What do you say for yourself? This session will be all about writing captions that captivate and using hashtags in a way that makes a difference. We’ll talk about the importance of using a call to action and how emotion plays into what you write online. Then we’ll dive into figuring out hashtags for your business or brand. We’ll all spend some time coming up with captions to photos we provide. Session 4: Making the Most of Phone Photography The final part of our day will be super interactive - bring your phones (and, if you're a maker, the product you create)! We’ll do a quick crash course on the basics of photography, discuss composing the perfect shot, and go over free apps you can use to edit and refine your photos! We’ll also chat about when to post the gorgeous photo you capture. You’ll spend some time in the training space composing and capturing photos, ending the day by sharing them on Instagram for your friends and fellow trainees to see! ​ashevillefolk.com

Fundamentals of Homesteading, 4-Week Series This four-part series on homesteading fundamentals offers a broad overview of several core aspects of modern domestic food production. Keeping a flock of chickens, canning and preserving shelf-stable foods, crafting homemade dairy products, and keeping a hive of honeybees are all entry points for shifting the origins of the foods you and your family consume back into your control. Whether you’ve got hundreds of acres or mere sliver of a backyard, these homesteading basics can be implemented right away!  Register for individual, a la carte classes, or for the entire series. Read about Ashley English here Week 1: Keeping Chickens, Monday June 6th, 7-9pm  Interested in keeping a flock of backyard chickens? This workshop will give you the low-down on all that's involved. From what to consider in advance, to determining the right birds for your specific needs, to obtaining, feeding, housing, and caring for your flock, we'll discuss the nuts and bolts of "chicken tendering." Week 2: Home Dairy, Monday June 13th, 7-9pm If you want to learn how to make dairy staples like butter, yogurt, and cheese, then this is the class for you! In this class, we’ll discuss the basics of crafting homemade dairy products. From equipment and ingredients (including a look at pasteurization and homogenization), to hygiene and technique, we'll examine the in's and out's of what it takes to create delicious homemade dairy goods. Week 3: Canning & Preserving, Monday June 20th, 7-9pm Intrigued by the growing interest in home food preservation? In this class we'll discuss the water bath canning method, assess the particulars of pressure canning, go over necessary equipment and ingredient selection, explore the science of acidity & alkalinity and their role in home canning, delve into pickling fundamentals, chat about achieving a “set” (what makes jam “jam”), and more. Week 4: Keeping Bees, Monday June 27th, 7-9pm  From rooftops to orchards, tiny slivers of backyards to expansive farms, beehives are becoming more and more visible and integral in modern homesteads. In this class, we’ll examine things to consider before getting started in beekeeping; discuss hive hierarchy and what precisely is meant by the term “bee space;” delve into hive housing, location, and feeding requirements; explore how to obtain and install honeybees into a hive; and so much more.

L.A.-based buzz band The Record Company has signed with Concord Music Group, which is releasing its debut album Give It Back to You on February 12, 2016. The rock/roots trio of Chris Vos (guitar, lead vocals, harmonica), Alex Stiff (bass, guitar, vocals) and Marc Cazorla (drums, piano, vocals) has already been hailed by LA Weekly for “making bluesy music that would sound more at home in a sweaty, backwoods Mississippi juke joint,” while Time Out Los Angeles has described their sound as “reminiscent of some of the best acts of the ’50s and ’60s—like if John Lee Hooker and the Stooges had a wellbehaved love child.” The comparisons are apt.

“We have been influenced by early electric blues, so some of that influence certainly shows,” acknowledges Vos. “But we’re just as influenced by bands like the Stones and The Stooges as we are by blues legends like Hooker, Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed.” Wherever it comes from, Vos, Stiff and Cazorla have clearly come up with a fresh take on classic rock ‘n’ roll that has proven appeal: Their music, well ahead of a record deal, has been featured in over 30 commercial, film, and television placements including the theatrical trailer for Last Vegas and ads for Coors Light, Subaru, Showtime’s Shameless, ABC’s Nashville, CBS’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and a current ad for Miller Lite.

Meanwhile, The Record Company has developed a reputation as a live act worthy of sharing the stage with such top attractions as B.B. King, Grace Potter, Trombone Shorty, Buddy Guy, Charles Bradley, Robert Randolph, The Wood Brothers, Social Distortion, and Blackberry Smoke—with whom they toured the U.K. and Europe. On the strength of two EPs (Superdead, released in 2012, and Feels So Good, in 2013), the band received strong college and Triple A radio format airplay and performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, NAPA Valley’s Bottlerock, Ottawa Folkfest, the Quebec City International Summer Festival and the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival. “Our sound has a lot of early rock n’ roll but with a greater emphasis on the drums and bass,” says Vos. “We aim to make the speakers move with our recordings.” The group writes, rehearses, records and mixes all of its music in the same living room in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz where it originated.

“It all comes from our desire to write the best songs we can–and the most honest music that we can,” says Vos. “We try to mix in different elements to keep it fresh. For example, our song ‘On the Move’ has just harmonica, bass, and drums with no guitar. ‘Don’t Let Me Get Lonely’ has all acoustic instruments–including acoustic bass–to capture more of the rockabilly vibe that we dig, that is in so much of the stuff we listen to.” The themes and stories in the lyrics of the songs are all draw from the threesome’s collective experiences. “They are just stories we wanted to tell,” Vos continues. ”They can be simple or complex, depending on what the music is calling for. Music and melody usually precede the lyric for us.” He notes, too, that each of The Record Company members play several instruments both live and on record.

“We work hard to incorporate them into the music as creatively as possible,” he says. “So besides the typical guitar, bass and drums, we also mix in harmonica, dobro slide, lap slide, pedal steel, piano, etc. It’s about making the right choices for the songs and keeping things as engaging as possible throughout the album–without compromising the integrity of the song.”

“Off the Ground” is the first single from Give It Back to You. “It was one of the last songs we wrote for it,” continues Vos. “The opening riff is Alex playing slide on a bass with a little delay on it, then Marc comes in with the drums, and I come in with my old junky lap steel guitar that I love so much. I was trying to capture a Hound Dog Taylor-esque sound on the slide guitar. We wanted to give the bass a fresh approach so Alex started playing the riff with a slide and we loved the way it sounded.” The song is already making noise, thanks to a music video and its usage in the Miller Lite commercial.

“It’s cool to have a song in a commercial for my dad’s favorite beer!” says Vos, who like Miller beer, hails from Wisconsin. “I grew up on a working dairy farm in Wisconsin that my family still owns and runs. It is something I am very proud of: I grew up milking cows, driving tractors, and bailing hay. Then I moved out to L.A. in 2010 to chase the dream of writing and playing music full-time.”

Not knowing anyone in his new hometown, Vos started jamming around. “I was jamming with some good people but I wanted a full-time thing, and ended up getting in touch with Alex. We hit it off as friends and he invited me to his pad to listen to some old vinyl records and hang out. It was there that I met Marc.”

They immediately recognized that they shared the same music tastes, and enjoyed jamming together. One night they listened to the classic John Lee Hooker-Canned Heat album Hooker N’ Heat, and were galvanized. “Later that week I came back to Alex’s with an amp,” Vos recalls. “The three of us set up some microphones in the living room and recorded ourselves running through some songs. We were listening to the playback and decided right then and there that we had to be a band.”

After recording a few tunes, “we hunted down every email address we could and started mailing stuff out to everybody basically saying, ‘Hey! We just formed this band in our living room. Listen to this for five seconds.’ Out of those first recordings we got booked into the Montreal Jazz Festival and Harvest Festival in Canada, and got on our first tours.” They settled on the band’s name after discovering that The Record Company was somehow available.

“We all agreed right away that it had to be the name,” says Vos. “Given the way we started, where we are from, and what we love to play, it makes perfect sense.” But making records notwithstanding, it’s playing live that sets this Record Company apart. “I always think of a performance as one less time on stage–not one more,” Vos concludes. “Nobody can say how many shows you get to play in your life. So we try to play our guts out, leave it all on the table, and have fun doing it.”

Description:
with Adam Torres, Cowboy Crisis
During the last decade, Aime Collet Argote has had more bands called Des Ark than she has albums under that name. She's howled and jerked in sweaty houses and rock clubs, backed by a drummer, another drummer, yet another drummer and a second guitarist, and a small symphony. She's brought big crowds to a whisper with nothing but her voice and a banjo or a tiny guitar that kept slipping out of tune. And though it perennially confuses the crap out of crowds expecting one thing & getting the other, she somehow manages to maintain these two separate Des Ark'sdifferent songs, utterly different audience experienceand the dissonance & tension in turn somehow binds together in a brilliant display of songwriting.
