Description:
This April marks the 50th anniversary of the tragic assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., so for Lent this season, Trinity is joining with St. Matthias to let King’s prophetic voice ring again. On each Sunday, we will explore on of King’s sermons, delivered in worship and in churches, to allow his voice and spirit to speak directly to us again. Some scholars consider the Civil Rights Movement as much a religious revival movement as a political movement. And King’s sermons demonstrate this dynamic profoundly, revealing King as a faithful pastor, an engaging theologian, and a stirring prophet all at once. We will hear his voice in its context and then explore how his voice continues to speak to us today and our current context today, to challenge, to inspire, and to provoke us to be more faithful Christians. Held jointly in honor of Dr. King’s vision of beloved community, this series will be led by and hosted at St. Matthias for the first two weeks Feb. 18-25, concluding for the final weeks at Trinity March 4-March 25, from 9:30-10:15 a.m. St. Matthias is located a few short blocks from Trinity at 1 Dundee St. The series will run from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. to give all attendees time to make it to worship at their respective parishes. Feb. 18th at St. Matthias: Bill Mance, diocesan chair of the Commission to Dismantle Racism, on “Paul’s Letter to American Christians,” a sermon delivered at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Montgomery, Alabama, on Nov. 4, 1956. Chairman of commission to dismantle racism Feb. 25th at St. Matthias: Jean Parks, previous senior warden of St. Matthias and counselor with the Partnership for Pastoral Counseling, on “Loving Your Enemies,” a sermon delivered to Dexter Avenue Baptist Church on Nov. 17, 1957, March 4th at Trinity: Liz Colton, Trinity vestry member and board member of the Asheville Martin Luther King, Jr. Association, on “The American Dream” and “Unfulfilled Dreams,” sermons delivered at Ebenezer Baptist church in 1965 and 1968. March 11th at Trinity: The Rev. Margaret Faeth on “The Drum-Major Instinct,” delivered at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Feb. 4, 1968. March 18th at Trinity: The Rev. Dennis Fotinos, facilitator of Trinity’s Becoming Beloved Community group, on “A Knock at Midnight,” delivered at Mt. Zion Baptist (Cincinnati) on June 11, 1967 March 25th at Trinity: The Rev. Dr. Scott White, with the Rev. Kirk Brown chaplain at Christ School, on “Reimagining Awake Through a Great Revolution,” delivered at Washington National Cathedral on March 31, 1968. Just a few days before his assassination, this marked King’s final Sunday sermon of his life. The Rev. Brown was in attendance that day.

Asheville Gallery of Art’s February show features the work of two new members, Ana Blanton and Zoe Schumaker. Though they paint in two different styles and mediums, the artists’ work represents the inspiration each derives from nature. The show runs February 1-28 during gallery hours, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The gallery, located at 82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pritchard Park, will host a reception for the artists on Friday, February 2, from 5-8 p.m. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. “When I process ideas, I see them as layers of images rather than words, and as my thoughts become imagery, I feel more comfortable expressing myself through abstract form,” says Ana Blanton. Of her latest series of mixed-media paintings she says, “In this series I am more interested in representing the sense and feel of light in nature. It is about exploring the sense of energy and movement that is unique to light traveling through air, water, and objects in nature or a simple still life.” Blanton, who has lived in Asheville since 1997, has a BA in Art Studio from Mars Hill University. She studied Art Conservation at University of Madrid, Spain, and mural painting and mural Conservation at the International School of Mural Painting Miguel Farre, Barcelona, Spain. Zoe Schumaker says, “From an early age, I tried to capture the beauty I saw by drawing and photographing my surroundings.” Raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains of Northern California, the artist spent many afternoons immersed in imaginative drawings of the mountains, lakes and forests, and the animals that live there. Schumaker rediscovered her passion for painting upon moving to the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2005. “As I explored the area, I started bringing my backpack kit of pastels. It was not long before I decided to pursue art full time.” The artist teaches painting at the John C. Campbell Folk School and is active in several regional environmental non-profits. She frequently donates her work to support these causes. “Nature is my muse. I hope my paintings capture the joy and reverence I feel for our beautiful home.” The featured works by Blanton and Schumaker, as well as the paintings of the other 29 gallery members will be on display and for sale through the month of February. For further information about this show, you can contact Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com, or go to the gallery Facebook page.

Diet Cig are here to have fun. Theyre here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday.Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 Over Easy EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back.Swear Im Good At This is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.But theres also a deeper, more powerful fuck-you among the bangers that see Diet Cig grow into an unstoppable and inspiring force. Im not being dramatic, Ive just fucking had it with the things that you say you think that I should be spits Luciano on Link in Bio; I am bigger than the outside shell of my body and if you touch it without asking then youll be sorry she yells on Maid Of The Mist. Its the sound of a band doing things on their own terms.Wrapping up Swear Im Good At This on Halloween 2016, exactly two years after they finished recording Over Easy on Halloween 2014, Diet Cigs first, full-length LP validates the experiences of punks who arent always accepted first time around; the punks who throw their deuces up at the dominating bro-dudes and ignite the importance of owning everything that you are.

with Ruby The Hatchet, Bask
Pallbearers third album, Heartless, is an inspired collection of monumental rock music. The band offers a complex sonic architecture that weaves together the spacious exploratory elements of classic prog, the raw anthemics of 90s alt-rock, and stretches of black-lit proto-metal. Lyrics about mortality, life, and love are set to sharp melodies and pristine three-part harmonies. Vocalist and guitarist Brett Campbell has always been a strong, assured singer, and on Heartless, his works especially stunning. This may in part be due to the immediacy of the lyrics. Written by Campbell and bassist/secondary vocalist Joseph D Rowland, the words have moved from the metaphysical to something more grounded. As the group explains: Instead of staring into to the voidboth above and withinHeartless concentrates its power on a grim reality. Our lives, our homes and our world are all plumbing the depths of utter darkness, as we seek to find any shred of hope we can."Pallbearer emerged from Little Rock, Arkansas in 2012 with a stunning debut full-length, Sorrow and Extinction. The record, which played like a seamless 49-minute doom movement, melded pitch-perfect vintage sounds with a triumphant modern sensibility that made songs about death and loss feel joyfully ecstatic. Pallbearer possessed what many other newer metal groups didn't: perfect guitar tone, classic hooks, and a singer who could actually sing. For their 2014 followup, Foundations of Burden, the band worked with legendary Bay Area producer Billy Anderson (Sleep, Swans, Neurosis) for an expansive album that was musically tighter and especially adventurous. Armed with a more technical drummer, Mark Lierly, Foundations feels like it was built for larger shared spacesyou could imagine these songs ringing off the walls of a stadium. It was a hint of things to come. While the debut earned the band a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork and rightly landed the band on year-end lists at places like SPIN and NPR, along with the usual metal publications, Foundations of Burden charted on the Billboard Top 100 and earned the band album of the year from Decibel and spots on year-end lists for NPR and Rolling Stone.Returning to where it all began, the quartet recorded their third full-length, Heartless on their own in Arkansas, and its grander in scope, showcasing a natural progression that melds higher technicality and more ambitious structures with their most immediate hooks to date. The collection, which follows the 3-song Fear & Fury EP from earlier this year, was captured entirely on analog tape at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock this past summer and then mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Melvins, Soundgarden).From the gloriously complex, sky-lit opener I Saw the End to the earth-shaking (and heartbreaking) 13-minute closer A Plea for Understanding, the entire group puts forth the full realization of their vision: More than a doom band, Pallbearer is a rock group with a singular songwriting talent and emotional capacity. Heartless finds the group putting forth their strongest individual efforts to date: Campbell and Rowland, along with guitarist/vocalist Devin Holt and drummer Mark Lierly, turn in peak marathon performances. Both Campbell and Rowland also handle synthesizers alongside their normal duties, and there are plenty of gently strummed acoustic guitars amid the crunchy electric ones, adding a moody, ethereal spareness to the towering metal. The almost 12-minute Dancing in Madness opens with dark post-rock ambience and moves toward emotional blues before exploding into a sludgy psychedelic anthem. A number of the seven songs feature a humid rock swagger.By fusing their widest musical palette to date, Pallbearer make the kind of heavy rock (the heavy moments are *heavy*) that will appeal to diehards, but could also find the group crossing over into newer territories and fanbases. After having helped revitalize doom metal, it almost feels like theyve gone and set their sights on rock and roll itself. Which doesnt seem at all impossible on the back of a record like Heartless.

Whether playing guitar in the late incarnation of riotous glam-rock innovators the New York Dolls, the gender-bending, envelope-pushing sleaze n’ tease arena rock band Semi Precious Weapons, the Neil Young-signed alt-country act Everest, British roots rock band Alberta Cross, Southern rock stalwarts Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ or even as frontman of the devilishly cleverly-named Heartbreakers meets Replacements rockers Madison Square Gardeners, offer a glimpse through the eyes of one gifted songwriter and versatile musician. While those stints may have never been his main destination, each one has been a stepping stone that has uniquely informed his songwriting and made him a compelling, singular artist. Tasjan’s songs, as first heard on his debut solo EP, 2014’s Crooked River Burning, are indebted to great American storytellers like John Prine, Tom Petty, Guy Clark, Steve Goodman, Arlo Guthrie and Todd Snider. They are imbued with wry wit, a sharp tongue and a lot of heart. Last year’s self-released LP, In The Blazes, received accolades from American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, Nashville Scene and NPR and suggested Tasjan was an artist to keep an eye on. While that album hinted at Tasjan’s enormous potential, it’s his sophomore effort, his New West Records debut, Silver Tears, that best realizes his artistic ambitions and solidifies him as one of the most intriguing singer/songwriters to emerge in sometime. An inspired and confident set of songs, the 12-track album, which features a cover with Tasjan decked out in a reflective suit and Stetson, careens from woozy pot paeans to brooding, cinematic observations to laid back ‘70s country-rock and galloping anthems to introspective folk and rollicking honky-tonk. “I might have made something that will surprise people,” Tasjan admits. “I didn’t completely abandon the recipe, but I really stretched myself and pushed beyond what people might expect from me. Being true as a musician, I’m not just one thing – and a variety of styles is a way to accomplish that. “ As in the song “On Your Side,” which sees Tasjan warble, “I sing jokes/And call ’em songs/Nobody knows where they belong/I’ve come up short/For far too long/And what felt right/Now feels so wrong,” Tasjan often turns the mirror on himself, never afraid to cast himself in a negative light. “One of the reasons I’ve been able to connect with people is by being honest and saying this is a really realistic picture of who I am,” he says. “It’s not always the good but it’s me.”  Dylan LeBlanc: WEBSITEHEAR SOME MUSICSEE A VIDEO Dylan LeBlanc knows second chances don’t come around often. But, neither do voices like his. Overwhelmed by the speed his gift would take him, from Applebee’s server to “the new Neil Young” in a matter of months, he walked away from an unlikely major label deal after releasing two critically acclaimed albums. He slipped into a blur of booze and self-doubt. Exhausted and damaged at just 23-years-old, Dylan came home to Muscle Shoals, Alabama to write a new life for himself. In between the moments of clarity and a few familiar falls, he also wrote a new album, Cautionary Tale: a collection of shimmering, arresting songs with the same haunting vocals that caught the attention of Lucinda Williams and Bruce Springsteen, now with a sharpened edge honed by hastened maturity. “This record is about me getting honest with myself,” says Dylan. “I had to let the guilt about the past go and find a new truth within myself. This time, I felt like I really had something to say.” To help him say it, he sought out long-time friend Ben Tanner, the same guy who had secretly helped Dylan record his first songs after hours while working at fabled FAME Studios. (He also introduced a 16-year-old Dylan to Wilco, George Harrison, and Ryan Adams by way of an external hard drive). In between touring with Alabama Shakes, Ben was beginning to engineer records again at the label he started with another friend of Dylan’s, Grammy Award-winning musician John Paul White, formerly of the Civil Wars. The two both produced and played on Cautionary Tale. “They prevented me from burying my words,” says Dylan. “Doubt can often be my first instinct, and I’ll try to cover things up with more elements to hide my voice, but I made up my mind to trust them. I heard Merle Haggard say once that the singer is secondary to the song, and they both helped me build a strong foundation for the emotions I was feeling.” The stripped down aesthetic that John Paul and Ben have made their label’s calling card sets Dylan’s voice in a light bright enough to see the patina the last few years has left behind. “I spent a lot of time writing about programming and conditioning and the idea of ego,” says Dylan. “I don’t want to rely on my circumstances or the past to say why I am the way I am anymore. A lot of my songs like ‘Cautionary Tale’ and ‘Look How Far We’ve Come’ are about trying to break out of a vicious cycle. I was wondering if I could find my solutions from within—if I could believe in something beyond the present.” If Dylan was wandering through a cemetery with his first album Paupers Field (“Songs are like headstones to me,” he told The Guardian), Cautionary Tale is an abandoned desert town. He reflects on what once was, and if anything could be again. At times, he wonders if the signs of life he sees on the horizon are real or just a mirage. Phantasmic, warbling voices in the background rise to meet his own and fade into the ether; ghostly guitar riffs echo in the emptiness around him. Finding the right arrangement and words was a more deliberate effort for Dylan this time. After feeling lost in the “mania” of recording his first two albums, he relied on Ben and John Paul to help him collect the pieces of his vision. “I’ve definitely become more disciplined. I don’t count on things like inspiration anymore,” says Dylan. “I learned so much from putting songs together with John Paul. Anything he does, it’s always going to be well-thought-out and well-placed. I’m naturally an improv guy, but now I see how that can be more limiting than planning your next move.” That new-found discipline shows. Never one to write out parts, Dylan methodically scored the stunning string sections with violinist Kimi Samson and cellist Caleb Elliot. To form the polished rhythm section he wanted to drive songs like “The Easy Way Out” and “Beyond the Veil,” he paired drummer Jeremy Gibson with Alabama Shakes bassist Zac Cockrell (“I wanted it to feel like a Bill Withers record or Al Green—soulful, but tight.”) While Dylan will be the first to admit he wasn’t ready to stand on the stages he played early in his career, there’s no doubting he is now. With a recalibrated compass, he’s back on the road opening sold-out shows for British singer-songwriter George Ezra, another artist praised for a wizened voice beyond his years. Dylan will continue to support George through September 2015, including a show at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium. Next, he’ll embark on his solo tour with dates throughout the South, Midwest, and New England. “After everything I’ve gone through, I still love putting records out and singing for people, no matter how big or small the crowd,” says Dylan. “It’s the only thing I want to do, and now I get to keep doing it as a more well-rounded person. I guess I’m blessed or whatever the hell you want to call it.”

Making yourself vulnerable isnt easy but it often makes for lasting art and that is certainly true of Tigers Jaws fifth full-length, spin. The album marks a new chapter for the Scranton, Pennsylvania-based indie rock band for many reasons: Not only is it the first collection of songs that was completely written and recorded solely by Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins, but it was also the first time they had a full month in the studio without having to worry about outside responsibilities. Furthermore its the inaugural release on Atlantic Records new imprint Black Cement, a label spearheaded by the bands longtime collaborator Will Yip who returned to the production helm for spin. All of these factors converged to create an album that sounds more fully formed than anything Tigers Jaw have done in the past and simultaneously establishes them as a band whose appeal truly transcends genres. While Walsh initially encouraged Collins to start singing lead vocals and songwriting with 2014s Charmer, the duos collective output on spin is a collaboration in the truest sense of a creative partnership. In a lot of ways this record is a return to the way the band started in the sense that it was coming from two people working very closely together and I think that resulted in something that was really cohesive, Walsh explains. The whole experience felt really organic even if the recording process was different than anything we had done in the past together. While Tigers Jaws previous four albums were recorded on tight deadlines and even tighter budgets, for spin the band would record six days a week for 10 hours a day over the course of an entire month and while the band didnt think theyd ever need that much time, ultimately they ended up utilizing every minute. Having all of that extra time allowed us to track everything song by song to give each individual track its own unique focus, Walsh explains. It allowed for the freedom to play around with different ideas rather than keeping things tied to the way we wrote the demos; the performances, tones and structures were really tailored to each individual track which gave us so much room to play around and experiment together. From the sweetly syncopated, fuzzed-out bliss of the opener Follows to the midtempo melodicism of June and liltingly lovely ballad Bullet, spin sees Tigers Jaw stretching out sonically and correspondingly Yip was the perfect person to encourage the duo to approach things in a different way than they would have initially conceived. Will is great at understanding what you want to get out of a song and pushing you to achieve that, Collins explains when asked about Yips role He had ideas especially about song structures that I might not have thought of and we had enough time in the studio to fully explore a lot of those ideas and see how they turned out. He didnt try to change the way we wanted the songs to sound but he allowed us to step outside of our comfort zone. Tigers Jaw have always been known for their incredibly relatable lyrics and for this album Walsh tried something new: He experimented with stream-of-consciousness writing as a way to get his ideas out of his subconscious in an unfiltered fashion. The lyrics I wrote for spin are very personal in the sense that theres a lot of material relating to mental wellness, coming to terms with getting older and pursuing something creative like this band even though that might not be the conventional path for someone my age, he explains. The album also sees Collins taking a shine to writing duties whether shes writing a love song like Same Stone or getting introspective on the dreamy sounding Brass Ring. Ultimately though, there isnt much distinction between Walsh and Collins on spin in the sense that the two of them come together to form a collective whole and not only do their styles perfectly complement each other, but at times their vocals are so in sync that its difficult to tell where one persons voice ends and the others begins. The two of us worked together so closely on this record especially when it came to layering our harmonies and I think along with open guitar chords and Casiotone organs, thats what really makes this album sound like us, Collins summarizes. We needed to do what felt like Tigers Jaw and I think we were able to do that in a really exciting way this time around.

Description:
What is the state of spirituality and faith in Asheville and Western North Carolina? In a community and a nation that is dramatically and rapidly changing, what are the most important and pressing spiritual issues facing people of faith and how are communities of faith addressing them? We wanted to know, so we decided to invite a half-dozen faith leaders from our region to join us in conversation and dialogue this Lenten season. Hosted by a member of Trinity’s clergy on Wednesday during Lent, these interview-style sessions will give us a chance to listen to our sisters and brothers about what they see happening in our communities. A light lunch ($5.00 per person) will be served, beginning at 12:00 noon and the program will begin at 12:15 p.m., running until 1 p.m. Bishop José McLoughlin will be our guest on Wednesday, Feb. 21 Rabbi Batsheva Meiri of Congregation Beth HaTaphelia will join us on Feb. 28 The Rev. James Lee will join us on March 7 Faith leaders involved in ministry to those experiencing poverty and homelessness, including the Rev. Vic Mansfield of Church of the Advocate, will join us on March 21 Our guest for March 14 is still being confirmed, so be on the lookout for that announcement!
