Description:

This exhibition showcases the work of 11 artists who integrate video into their studio practice. Some artists use cameras to document their work being used (or abused). Others use video to document a process that is perhaps more important to them than finished, fired objects. All of these pieces have a life of their own on the Internet, where they can be shared in ways that physical objects cannot. Featured artists include: Sam Brennan, Forrest Sincoff Gard, Ben Harle, Jo Kamm, Roberto Lugo, Jeffrey Miller and Thomas Schmidt, Cheyenne Rudolph, Jason Lee Starin, Eva Vogelsang and Man Yau.

7pm doors. ALL AGES.

“I didn’t think I was going to live past 20 years old,” recounts Liz Vice. It’s a surprising revelation considering the vitality and energy she exudes onstage, but it brings context to the utter joy and gratefulness and humility and magic that imbues her soulful voice throughout ‘There’s A Light,’ her debut album. Vice is an unlikely breakout artist—she’ll be the first to tell you that she never intended to share her singing voice with anyone—but she’s overcome the odds with a survivor’s spirit, discovering that sometimes we have to travel dark roads and long nights before the sun can illuminate our true path.

Born the middle of 5 children and raised by a single mother, Vice grew up in Oregon with dreams of becoming a filmmaker. She faced an unthinkable plot twist at the age of 15, though, when she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and her kidneys began to fail. By 19, she’d begun what would turn into three-and-a-half years of dialysis, during which time she faced down congestive heart failure, dangerous weight loss, and a series of hospital-borne infections that could have proved fatal to someone in her condition.

“Instead of praying that I would be healed, I was just so tired that I would pray for death every day,” she confesses. “But every day I woke up, I decided to live that day to the fullest.”

When well enough to work, she put herself through medical assisting school and was blessed with a much-needed kidney transplant. The new lease on life encouraged her to pursue her dream of filmmaking, long-since put on hold in the face of her struggle to survive.

“I decided I was going to make films and put people of color in them with no stereotypes attached,” Vice explains. “I wanted to make movies that encouraged people to go out and do something in their lives, that wouldn’t make them feel limited because they grew up in a certain neighborhood or family situation.”

While working in film, she began attending a new church in Portland and inexplicably found herself compelled to audition for the worship team, a small group of singers and musicians who led the young congregation in contemplative, folk-inspired songs. Overcoming her intense stage fright, she auditioned for Josh White, the pastor of the church and who wrote much of the material for the worship team, and their connection was immediate. Vice began singing in smaller, laid back services during the week, until one Sunday, Vice was called to sing solo in front of the full congregation of nearly 400 parishioners.

“I remember as I was singing, it felt like every pore in my body opened up, and I was just covered in sweat like I had water poured on top of my head,” she says. “I was so overwhelmed with the adrenaline of singing a song of that magnitude by myself in front of that many people. It felt like I just went to a new place and everyone disappeared, and then the song was over. There was so much emotion happening I had to sit down. My friend walked onstage in tears and she said, ‘What was that?’ I looked at her and started crying and said, ‘I don’t know.'”

It was a life-changing performance. White decided to give Vice songs he intended for his own solo project. After just one rehearsal, she and the band headed into Jackpot Studios to record all of the instrumentation live to tape. The buzz about the music they were creating was so strong that when they announced a local release show, it sold out almost instantly. Her riveting performance led to dates with Cody Chesnutt and St. Paul & The Broken Bones, as well as a slot at the prestigious Blues Fest, and now, an international release for the album on Ramseur Records.

‘There’s A Light’ opens with the funky R&B of “Abide,” Vice’s voice sounding like something straight out of the Stax vault over top of a slinky bass and drum groove. On “Empty Me Out,” the keyboards take over front and center as Vice’s voice grows in rich, expansive layers of harmony. It was hearing the recording of the slow-burning “Entrance” for the first time, though, that convinced her she was creating something special with White.

“When I first listened to the final mix, as soon as it gets to the first ‘ooohs,’ I couldn’t believe that voice was mine,” she remembers. “It was the first time I ever heard the things that people kept saying they heard when I sang. I started tearing up and had this moment of, ‘Can I cry to my own song?'” she laughs. “It felt like an out of body experience.”

The wailing vocals on “The Source” are the stuff that goosebumps are made of, while Vice found herself channeling Michael Jackson on “Everything Is Yours” and pushing deep into the kind of questions about faith and spirituality that one rarely has the courage to ask in church on “Enclosed By You.”

Though it’s not filmmaking like she originally dreamed of, Vice has found music to be a vehicle for the same type of positive social influence she hoped to have as a director. She imagines the up-tempo gospel of “Pure Religion” as the kind of song a mother might sing to her children to keep them on the right track, and “All Must Be Well” is a message of resilience and survival through hard times. It’s perhaps on the title track, though, that we hear the purest expression of love and hope, with Vice joyfully singing “There’s a light shining over me” throughout the two-minute, feel-good album closer.

There is indeed a light shining over Liz Vice. It saved her all those years ago just when she thought her life was ending, and it shone down upon a new calling, one in which she gets up onstage every night and shares that light with the world. Come what may, Liz Vice is gonna let it shine.

Dr. Barbara Wagner, MD (Austria), from the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends, will speak about medically verifiable healings that have taken place, and continue to take place, as a result of following the spiritual path as taught by Bruno Groening (1906-1959).  This is part of an international lecture series.  The ancient civilizations of humanity spoke of the existence of a higher power that can help and heal.  Bruno Groening called this power "Heilstrom" or healing force.  Among other things, he taught how one can absorb this natural healing power.  The healings, even of so called incurable diseases, are occurring today just as they did during his life.  A multitude of medically documented healing reports testify to this.  In this lecture, healed individuals will report about their experiences.  Those attending will have the opportunity to experrience the healing force energy.

Inspired by psychedelia, indie rock, and progressive hip hop, Gomec co-headlined the 2015 Holiday Gift Rapping Tour (w/ special guest, Comrade Ringo) and has shared a stage with reputable hip hop acts including milo, SB the Moor, and Grand Prize Winners From Last Year.    Blaxix is a visual artist recently relocated from Lancaster, PA.

Genre: Pop/Rock Cover: $8 ADV // $10 DOS Show: 9PM (8PM Doors) Ages: ALL AGES Posh Hammer http://www.poshhammer.com/ https://twitter.com/poshhammerband https://www.youtube.com/user/PoshHammerBand Posh Hammer is a teenage trio whose musical talent and vintage influences belie their age — Navied recently turned 18, while twins Tasnim and Tiam are 16. The Asheville-based pop rock band has been generating buzz in the Southeast with their updated 70’s glam style and indie pop sound since they started headlining shows two years ago.  The siblings have made their music careers a top priority, even convincing their parents to homeschool them so that they can dedicate more of their time to recording and gigging. Lead guitarist Navied co-writes the band’s catchy power-pop tunes with vocalist and frontwoman Tasnim while Tiam holds down the groove on bass. The band recorded their debut album, Some Other Time, Some Other Place, at Echo Mountain Recording Studios in early 2014 and is slated to release their newest EP, A Revolt into Style this year. A tour, music video for the song “Absolutely Everyone” and a follow-up EP are already in the works.  While Posh Hammer’s sound is decidedly contemporary, Navied says he and his sisters were “raised on a mix of 60s, 70s and 80s pop,” and those influences are apparent. With Tasnim’s gutsy vocals, Tiam’s driving bass lines and Navied’s clever hooks, Posh Hammer draws inspiration from the likes of David Bowie, Roxy Music, The Cars, The Killers, and Bleachers, to name a few. It’s a sound and a style that has drawn attention from the Asheville music scene and media. Asheville Grit describes the band as “not just a regular, old rock band, but a retro-pop, super-stylish band writing and playing original songs and rocking looks inspired by people and music that were around long before they were born.” Asheville’s Mountain Xpress writes, “Posh Hammer has learned much in a relatively short time about what it takes to be successful in the music industry.” And what exactly does success mean for the young band? Right now, it’s a matter of working hard to put their music out there. “Our goal is to share our music with as many people as we can,” says Navied. In this regard, they say living under the same roof helps. “We think being siblings has made it easier for Posh Hammer to be one musical unit that happens to contain three distinct personalities,” says Navied. “Rather than three musical individuals who just happen to be in a band.” Amythyst Kiah & Her Chest of Glass Amythyst Kiah is a Southern Gothic, alt-country blues singer/songwriter based out of Johnson City, TN, which has been her permanent residence for nearly a decade. She has been performing in what is known as the Tri-Cities (Bristol, TN/VA, Johnson City, TN, Kingsport, TN) and in various parts of Southwest Virginia. Amythyst Kiah & Her Chest of Glass, which literally amplifies her normal acoustic set into blues rock. The band is comprised of Matt Martin (bass), Patrick Taylor (lead guitar), Taylor Green (Keyboards) and Andrew Gibbens (drums/percussion), all part of another on-the-rise band from Johnson City called this mountain.  Not only are her influences eclectic, but they span across decades. She draws heavily on Old Time music (Mississippi Sheiks, Son House, Jimmie Rodgers, Olla Belle Reed, Carter Family) and is inspired by vocal stylings of R&B and Country music from the '50s-'70s (Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn). She also draws heavily from contemporary artists that have similar powerful vocal integrity (Adele, Florence and the Machine, Megan Jean and the KFB, Janelle Monae, Thom Yorke, Tori Amos, Bonnie Raitt). Needless to say, Amythyst has got a lot of tools in her vocal tool box, and is also well on her way to join the powerhouse vocalist pantheon. Her sound on her solo album, “Dig”, is raw and sparse, with heavy lyrical content regarding such themes as loss, betrayal, and murder. She has opened for such acts as Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott, The Duhks, Megan Jean and the KFB, and has played the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival 2012 alongside the Ebony Hillbillies and Sparky and Rhonda Rucker, and has performed on Music City Roots and most recently returned from Southern Fried Festival in Perth, Scotland and shared the bill with the likes of Rhiannon Giddens and the Punch Brothers. tunes: https://soundcloud.com/herchestofglass

http://kinggizzardandthelizardwizard.com/

Like many of the world’s greatest artists, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are one of the most difficult bands to pin down. The Australian-based septet constantly zig when you think they’re about to zag.

Starting out in 2010 as a solid garage rock group, they’ve followed their collective muse wherever it chose to lead them, whether that be the bluesy alien psychedelia of their 2014 album Oddments or the expansive, almost jazzy, Dead-like head trips of Quarters! Or as frontman Stu Mackenzie puts it, “I always wanted to be a band where you would expect the unexpected each time, with each album being treated like a different phase.”

For their latest opus, they initially thought it was going to be filled with the darker, heavier material that the band has been playing live of late. But Mackenzie soon decided that it was time to put aside the longer, more conceptual pieces and go in a completely new direction. Hence, the band’s seventh album Paper Mâché Dream Balloon was recorded using nothing but acoustic instruments. The result is a lovely, lilting pop masterpiece that still evokes the same intoxicating exuberance as KGATLW’s most recent work, but with a more pastoral, communal feel to it.

That spirit came alive in the writing and recording process. Unlike the last two albums, there is no overarching theme tying it all together. So, rather than cooking the whole thing up as a group in the studio or rehearsal space, the various members of KGATLW wrote separately, bringing their songs to the group as they finished them. “There was a lot of collaboration,” says Mackenzie, “but in smaller combinations.”

That could have made for a schizophrenic batch of tunes, but the band are so deeply connected at this point that they each reached the same sonic conclusions, combining the rambling pulse of T. Rex (“The Bitter Boogie”), the free-spirited bliss of The Free Design (“Dirt”), and the countryside wanderings of late ‘60s Kinks (“Bone”, “Most of What I Like”).

While embracing the limitations of their choice of only acoustic sounds, KGATLW were able to get a little experimental as well. To fill out the sound, they borrowed a batch of instruments that they had never played before—clarinet, double bass, and cello, among them—and eked sounds and melodies out of them. That only helps to add to joyous jumble that is Paper Mâché Dream Balloon.

Too, the band eschewed traditional recording methods for most of this new LP. The bare bones of many of the songs were laid down by Mackenzie in a shipping container that sat on his parents’ farm on the Victorian coast of Australia. From there, the band stitched the rest of it together with overdubs and new recordings in their bedrooms and home studios, outside of the closing instrumental “Paper Mâché,” which was captured with the help of Unknown Mortal Orchestra bassist Jake Portrait while they were in New York.

As ever, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard aren’t going to rest in this acoustic wonderland for long. The band is already gearing up for another long stretch of touring, where they will be adapting some of these tunes for their electrified lineup as well as returning to the heavier material they were already working on.

“I think everyone knows what this band is about,” Mackenzie says. “I have always been afraid of being pigeonholed. The band personality is to try and do something that you wouldn’t expect.”

Mission accomplished.
