Fracking Stories   [Film]

Event Date: 06/02/2015  Event Time: All Day

Description:
Imagine if the water you gave your family made them sick. This is a real fear facing communities where fracking is currently taking place. Even when landowners say no to drilling, contamination from fracking nearby can still expose them to toxic chemicals against their will. Although fracking is now legal and permits can be issued by the state, there is still much that can be done to protect North Carolinians from the dangers of fracking. This requires people coming together in their own communities and taking civic action, to stand in solidarity and send a strong message that the people of NC do not want fracking and we will work to protect our families, public health, quality of life and property rights.

Join us for Fracking Stories - an event featuring six short documentaries that expose the public health and environmental consequences of hydraulic fracturing, and the ways that communities are coming together to protect their land and water. Come learn about the issues, talk with community member

The Gamblers :: June Lounge Residency   [Other]

Event Date: 06/03/2015  Event Time: 7:00 PM

Description:
$10 7pm :: In the Lounge The Gamblers are a nostalgic roots-jazz party band celebrating the New Orleans, Chicago, and New York small groups of the early 20th century. Loose and spontaneous in the old time ways of traditional jazz, with a touch of early blues and gospel, this is big-city music with a back-porch vibe. This week - New Orleans Dance Hall: In the 1940's when swing had mostly supplanted the early jazz of the crescent city the great clarinetist George Lewis and others innovated a throwback style that would later become what's now known as traditional jazz. This show will be a tribute to that timeless sound, featuring electric collective improvisation from a full front line of horns, a repertoire that shimmies from spirituals to blues to early 20th century folk songs, and an incessant rhythm to drive a dance floor. Limited Tables are available with dinner reservation. Seating / Standing is otherwise available first come first serve. Call Isis at 828-575-2737 for reservations.

Kill Paris   [Other]

Event Date: 06/04/2015  Event Time: All Day

Description:
Ages 18+

Corey Baker, better known as Kill Paris, was born in a small town in Indiana, USA. His musical journey outside of touring has taken him from Indiana, to Florida, Nashville, Los Angeles, and now currently Colorado.

Starting out playing guitar at age 15, Corey’s musical background has always revolved around instruments. From guitar, Corey began learning piano, bass, and drums through his teen years.

After college in Tampa, Florida, Corey set off to Nashville where he would experience an entirely different genre, Country. Corey played bass in several different singer/songwriter country artists. At the same time, Corey began devoting more time to “Kill Paris”. He started to dj and play live sets around town.

“I used to take a bass, guitar, keyboard, foot pedal, laptop, and drum pad down to this Bosnian cafe in Nashville. I’d play for a good 3 hours, just jamming, and there would be like 2 people in the restaurant.”

Feeling unfulfilled, Corey packed everything up and moved to Sar
