Description:
Lost Utopias is an exhibition of works from New York-based photographer Jade Doskow. The show opened on June 1st, and will run through July 28th. For the past decade, Doskow has been documenting the remains of World’s Fair sites, once iconic global attractions that have often been repurposed for less noble aspirations or neglected and fallen into decay. Doskow’s photographs poignantly illustrate the utopian architecture and art that has surrounded the World’s Fairs, across both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She is an award-winning photographer based in Brooklyn, New York, known for her rigorously composed and eerily poetic images that examine the intersection of people, nature, and time. This series has been featured in numerous press outlets including Architect Magazine, Elle Decor Italia, American Photo, Design Observer, Design Arts Daily, Photograph Magazine, Dwell, Slate, and Wired, among others.

Could you be the voice for an abused/neglected child in the court system? Volunteers needed in Buncombe County North Carolina Guardian ad Litem Program 828-259-3443 or www.volunteerforgal.org for more info No experienced needed – all training and support provided Since January 1, 2017, 360 children have entered the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program – this means that 343 kids are alleged to have been abused/neglected and are in the court system. Of no fault of their own, these kids are typically removed from their home and placed and in foster care or a kinship placement. Why were they removed from the home? Maybe their parents abused substances, had untreated mental health, or engaged in domestic violence – maybe it was a combination of these factors. Either way, it’s the kids who pay the ultimate penalty as their lives are uprooted, they often change school districts and are taken away from everything they know. There are so many parties in a DSS abuse/neglect case: the judge, parents/caretakers, parent’s attorneys, DSS attorneys, GAL attorneys, investigative/in-home/foster care social workers…it’s easy to see how the kids get lost in the system. That’s where the role of the Guardian ad Litem comes in: to advocate and ensure the voice of the child is heard in court, that their wishes for permanency and best interest are made known to all parties. With so many kids in the GAL program, our office is overwhelmed with cases, and we have a critical need for volunteers to represent children’s best interests in court. There is no experience necessary and we provide all training and support. Being a GAL is a challenging and demanding role, but also incredibly rewarding as you literally ensure the child’s voice is heard in court throughout the life of the case. Our next training begins mid-January – visit www.volunteerforgal.org to complete a volunteer application, or call the office at 828-259-3443 for more information. Could you be the voice for a child?

"Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. Our organization did not make or devise the plan—we found the plan because it already exists. We gathered a qualified and diverse group of researchers from around the world to identify, research, and model the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global warming within thirty years." -- Drawdown Join MountainTrue for a discussion of this fascinating and optimistic approach to reversing global warming. We will meet for four weeks and address new solutions each time. It is free to attend the book study, but MountainTrue will not be providing copies of Drawdown.

Joywave - Somebody New (Official Video) Joywave - It's A Trip! (Official Video) Joywave - Doubt (Official Video) “Anxiety caused by feeling too content” is just the first aspect of the double-pronged paradoxical rumination that is Content, the sophomore full-length album by Rochester,

NY-based indie quintet, Joywave, slated for release July 28 with a tour supporting Young the Giant and Cold War Kids to follow. The title, Content, sees Joywave apply their trademark irreverence and humor to two large yet interrelated ideas springing from the dual meaning of the word, “content”, and signaling a move into a deeply personal terrain for Joywave frontman Daniel Armbruster.

About the duality reflected in the album’s title (CONtent the noun versus conTENT the adjective), Armbruster says:”I loved that the two words were associated with completely opposite feelings for me (one pure, one not), and that only a human hearing the two words in the English language could tell the difference between the ideas represented. To a search engine, they are identical. How can you explain to Google that one of these things makes you happy and helps fill the void in your soul, and the other is just flooding your senses?”

Three years have passed since Joywave’s “Tongues”and their collaboration with Big Data on the hit song “Dangerous” first put the band on the map. Creating their own imprint Cultco Music via Hollywood Records, the five members of Joywave—Daniel Armbruster (vocals), Joseph Morinelli (guitar), Sean Donnelly (bass), Benjamin Bailey (keyboards), and Paul Brenner (drums)— embarked on an intense tour schedule in support of their debut album, sharing the stage with Foals, The Killers, Brandon Flowers, Metric, Silversun Pickups and Bleachers. They played at Coachella, Lollapalooza (US & Berlin), Reading & Leeds, Okeechobee, Osheaga, Hangout and Bumbershoot, with appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers’ shows. Glowing reviews followed in Rolling Stone, Billboard, Spin and Entertainment Weekly.

This success enabled Armbruster to seriously adult on a whole new level, and this year he finally moved into a place of his own, a few blocks away from his childhood home. For Armbruster, who sold stationery and paper goods at Staples before Joywave took off, the musical dream born when he started writing songs aged fifteen was finally coming true. The single “It’s A Trip!” began with two basic ideas in mind: “Haunting” versus “haunted”. “I wanted to make something undeniably beautiful that would outlast me, but at times verged on the absurd and snapped the listener out of a dreamy haze. “It’s A Trip!” moves pretty far in the absurd direction, juxtaposing a pretty friendly arena-sized chorus against versus straight out of a haunted house. The song is a little disorienting, much like the past few years of our lives have been”. The music video for “It’s A Trip!” features the band slowly aging as they ride jet skis in

Miami and underscores the sense of endlessly being on tour, just getting older while the girl on the back of the jet ski stays the same age.

Touring—which Armbruster describes as “an episode of Louie where it’s funny but somewhat soul crushingly sad at the same time”—took its toll on the band both physically and emotionally but had an upside. “Playing our instruments was second nature at that point,” notes guitarist Joey Morinelli, that allowed us to focus and interact with crowds, and each other on stage, in ways that we never had before.“

Post tour, Armbruster who had been dealing with chronic illness was diagnosed with pancreatitis, and had to stop drinking on doctor’s orders. Sobriety “really affected the sound of the record,” he says. In contrast to Joywave’s playful debut, the tone of Content is more confessional, sometimes combative, as it questions how connected we really are in this hyper-connected world—which brings us to Content’s second theme, stemming from the collective angst of a generation whose art (and very lives) are now mere content for the Internet. Sonically, Content is more cohesive than Joywave's LP1, How Do You Feel Now? It’s focused and deliberate, loud and cinematic featuring a more prominent vocal throughout LP2.

As a clear example of conscious, positive content; the title track “Content” is accompanied with a video shot on vintage Super 8 on location at Kodak Tower in Rochester. The building, once the global epicenter of film photography, is a monument to the pre-Internet world in the Rochester skyline and a place that’s close to the hearts of all bandmembers, as most of their parents worked there before Kodak filed for bankruptcy. In addition, Kodak has afforded the band the opportunity to utilize some of their iconic equipment which inspired Daniel to take up film photography to help fill the existential void. “Film is slower and more deliberate, and that’s calming in a way. It's not disposable, it's not easy, which in turn, forces you to care. I like that.”

At the end of the day music is at the core of what Joywave is and drives the creativity in every aspect. Brenner sums it up, “We're always working on new music and new ways to make our live performance better and better. Joywave will not be confined to a certain genre or niche. We do what we want.”

Content is produced by Joywave’s Daniel Armbruster & Sean Donnelly and mixed by Rich Costey (TV On The Radio, The Shins, Interpol) and will be released on Hollywood Records/Cultco Music on 7.28.

LinksGrandson is a 23-year-old alternative artist hailing from Canada. Born in the small town of Englewood, New Jersey, he relocated to the cultural melting pot of Toronto at a young age, and grew up surrounded by music ranging from jazz to rock & roll to rap, dancehall and R&B.

At 17, he moved to Montreal to attend university, and began working in nightclubs cleaning tables and DJing. He started writing music at this time, incorporating the unique blend of sounds he grew up surrounded by. He started experimenting with music production and rapping in 2013, dropped out of school and headed to Los Angeles to pursue music full time.

Adopting the "grandson" moniker while living in LA, he dove deeply into rock influences such as Rage Against the Machine, Nirvana and Led Zeppelin, while keeping an ear on the rap/R&B music emerging out of Toronto and alternative acts such as Twenty One Pilots and Hiatus Kaiyote. He found a small community of musicians to work and perform with in LA and eventually formed his band. Reminiscent of early punk and grunge music, grandson's live set attempts to create a frantic, mosh pit-inducing cathartic release of energy for fans.

Searching for his voice and for meaning in today's divisive, chaotic world, grandson's songwriting confronts the most pressing issues of his generation, such as financial inequality, governmental and environmental accountability and social justice, giving these topics a soundtrack with a genuine sense of urgency and frustration, while simultaneously touching on adolescence, relationships, and the insecurities and difficulties of growing up through your 20s. When asked about today's music scene, he says "I genuinely believe the world needs honest rock and roll, now more than ever."

Coming to an info session is the best way to get introduced to the SeekHealing community. Whether you’re actively healing from an addiction crisis or just looking to deepen your capacity for connection, you’re welcome. The only requirement is that you’re a seeker: someone who is actively working on become a healthier, happier human being. We’ll have some good food, talk about addiction and the ways in which it affects all of us, and play some games that will be both fun and challenging. The games provide a structure for us to practice authentic connection with ourselves and with each other. They will push you to be more aware of your words, to be more mindful, to open up, show up, get real, get vulnerable and build trust. These are the basic skills needed for having the meaningful connections & relationships that we all need to stay healthy: whether we struggle with an active chemical addiction or not.  At the end of the session, you can choose to enroll in the program according to the level of support you need. If you want to volunteer, dig deeper and come practice authentic connection regularly, you may choose to sign up for a Listening Training. If you are actively healing from an addiction crisis, we will match you with someone to practice authentic connection with on a weekly basis and you may qualify for our scholarship program to get access to free local resources like yoga, sports leagues, meditation, martial arts, guitar lessons, dance, healing arts, and more. Space is limited, so please RSVP by snagging one of the free tickets and filling out the registration form we'll send to the email you use to sign up. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/seekhealingavl

Almost born on the airplane from Columbus, Ohio, where his family lived, to Philadelphia, because his mom, a native of Philly, only trusted one doctor. Then the infant Edelman was flown right back to Columbus. "I was a very serious kid, and I think that's why. That's a lot of stress for a baby." His best friend in Columbus was a weeping willow tree. From there Paul's family moved to the north shore of Long Island, one of the natural habitats to the privileged dirtbag." There was a lot of money in that town, we stood out like sore thumbs." His family was always musical. Paul's uncle narrowly avoided success when he refused to sell one of his songs to Joe Cocker." Everyone in the family had talent, my mom had a beautiful voice."Paul spent a year at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh before settling into Philly. Paul spent years hosting open mics all through town, meeting folks and drawing influence from his peers. " My strongest asset is the ability to surround myself with people that are better than me." Eventually, Paul began connecting with some serious players with real ambition and talent. Paul found himself being a sought after player in town. "One of my first bandmates insists that I invented the term Grunge as a musical genre." He learned how to give other songwriters what their songs needed, and in so doing, was learning how to craft his own music with unique vision.Paul was a Boxcar, a Butcher Holler Boy and lead guitar for Naked Omaha, three of the hottest tickets in town, simultaneously. It was no surprise then when Paul broke out on his own with the Jangling Sparrows, he was selling out the World Cafe and sharing bills with James McMurtry, Robert Earl Keen and Langhorn Slim.Tough and tender, from a holler to a whisper. from timeless, original, Soul, Folk and Country to ferocious twang rock.Paul has also shared stages with: The Drive By Truckers, Neko Case, Scott Miller, Big Sandy and his Flyrite Boys, Slim Cessna, Marah, The Bottlerockets, The Sadies, and if you include stage crashing, Sarah Mclaughlin, Chrissie Hind, Cheryl Crow and the Dixie Chicks."Edelman makes short work of simple but effective lyrics, driving percussion, searing guitars and hooky melodies....Hints of Springsteen and Mellencamp are balanced with Edelmans original sound; an imperfect but comfortable voice and addictive narrative songs" Alli Marshal-Mountain Xpress

We are excited to welcome Deb Lewis, and Vintage ’59, to Ambrozia for a paired dinner. With a focus on small, French growers and producers, both Chef Sam and myself are big Vintage ’59 fans. And when you add National Sales Manager and good friend Debra Lewis to the equation, it’s a no-lose situation. She’s a force of nature, and Sam and I have immense respect for her knowledge and palate. The wines we’ve selected for this event are especially exciting. There’s festive bubbles to get the party started, and after that, it’s bone-dry and minerally Muscadet and richer, spicier White Burgundy. Equally engaging, the deeper colored, bolder rosé from Coupe Roses is a special treat. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the reds, and we certainly picked some special ones. The 93-point-rated Cote de Brouilly from Pavillon de Chavannes is ridiculously delicious and the Chateauneuf du Pape from Domaine de Saje will take your breath away. And paired with Chef Sam Etheridge’s creative and soulful cuisine, this promises to be a feast for the senses. All of the wines will be available for purchase, in limited quantities and at special prices, through Table Wine. Rest assured, this will be an occasion that you won’t want to miss! Wines to be served: Charles Bove Methode Sparkling Brut NV Domaine Claude Branger Muscadet Sevre et Maine “Terroir Les Gras Moutons” 2015 Domaine Sylvaine & Alain Normand Macon La Roche-Vineuse 2016 Chateau Coupe Roses Frémillant Rosé 2017 Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes Cote de Brouilly “Cuvée de Ambassades” 2016 Domaine de Saje Chateauneuf du Pape 2015 Seating is limited, so call Ambrozia at 828-350-3033 today to reserve your place.

Genre: Cinematic R&BCover: Ca$h Donation$ @ DoorShow: 10PMAges: 21+  MELD MELD's music is an eclectic soulful journey. Drawing inspiration from her two favorite genres, Electronica and Classic Soul, she has created a unique fusion of musical elements. People have likened her performance to that of a "modern day" Janis Joplin meets Janelle Monae.  In January of 2017, MELD released her debut EP "H.U.R.T." (Healing Under Rising Truth.) The 5-song work was produced by Matt Harris of Livetronica band, Zoogma, and can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, YouTube and more. Her single "Easy On The Game" received nods from Nylon Magazine, BTRToday, No Country for New Nashville, YabYum Arts, Syracuse New Times, and several other publications- ultimately landing the single on Hype Machine. The "H.U.R.T." remix album is set to be released in March 2018, with collaborations and remixes by Felice, Y-Diz, Smurphio, SAER, Daniel Simmons, Spaceship Earth, Waterchild, and Batavia. In previous solo projects, MELD (Melanie Dewey,) has had the opportunity to share the stage with jam bands Zoogma, Papadosio, and Brothers Past. vid: https://youtu.be/-N4zLBy4zRI The Knotty G's Chuck Knott and "Jill with a G" front the funky and fun-loving folk duo known as The Knotty G's. Formed in Asheville, NC, they travel the country serving up soul in a hearty original recipe of pan-seared-boot-stomping-upbeat tunes, slow-cooked-captivating ballads, and even a few beaten-battered-deep-fried covers. Nothing short of a stir fry of fun, these characters can certainly satiate even the biggest of musical appetites. web: https://www.theknottygs.com/vid: https://youtu.be/exKbUwuy-74

So what’s the difference? There really is no difference in the grape folks. Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are the same grape. Grigio and Gris simply translate, mean grey, and that is a direct reference to color of the grape skin. Typically called Pinot Gris in France and Oregon and Pinot Grigio in Italy, though there are no rules, the grape tends to yield a wide variety of wine styles. The style is very much dependent on the producer and their viticultural and vinification methods. Join us as we break it down for you with different styles of Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris from different regions and producers. Taste, learn, and save every Friday at Table Wine. All of the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day only. Can’t make it by, but want to take advantage of the savings? Call us at 828.505.8588 and we can run your card over the phone. 1. 2017 Alois Lageder “Riff” Pinot Grigio (Delle Venezie, Italy) – Alois Lageder is one of the pioneering producers of Italy’s Alto Adige zone, and his Riff Pinot Grigio is one of the best Italian Pinot Grigio values on the market. Fermented in stainless steel, this one is light and refreshing, but flavorful with notes of pear, apple, citrus, and white flowers. Special Tasting Price: $9.59/bottle 2. 2016 Left Coast Cellars Pinot Gris “Orchard” (Willamette Valley, Oregon) – Oregon has gained a terrific reputation for Pinot Gris over the years, and this one shows why. Typically fuller, richer, and rounder in style than versions produced in Italy, this one lives up to that billing. Look for more lush notes of peach and melon along with more complex nuances of spice and ginger. Special Tasting Price: $13.59/bottle 3. 2016 Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio “Punggl” (Alto Adige, Italy) – This is one of Italy’s highest rated Pinot Grigios, and there’s good reason for that. From 85 year-old vines, this is rich, creamy, and highly expressive Pinot Grigio. When we’ve poured it in the past, people have been like, “that’s not Pinot Grigio.” Yes, it is! And the grape is more than capable of greatness if treated with respect. 93 points James Suckling Special Tasting Price: $15.99/bottle
