Athens, GA indie pop multi-instrumentalist who has toured as a performing member of Regina Spektor's band and most recently OF MONTREAL!
New album "Lighght" (pronounced "Light") on Joyful Noise Recordings! Though violin remains his primary instrument and songwriting muse, Kishi Bashi has expanded his palette to include more diverse and nuanced instrumentation. Bright and soaring avant-pop songs are prevalent, as are Eastern-tinged arrangements, gentle ballads, Philip Glass inspired improvisations, and more than a few moments that flirt with 70s prog (in the tradition of ELO or Yes).

RED SOUL DAYS are coming: The One Week Play

hi
Two playwrights, one director, seven days, one play. You've heard of 24-hour play fests; we're taking it to the next level. We're creating one play in one week that will break your hearts, challenge your convictions, and send you home talking about it.

The show will be at High Dive, starting at 8pm. Tickets are only $10 and all proceeds go to benefit the charities of Red Soul Days. The title and topic of the play will be announced here on Aug. 13, after our playwrights have finished the script.

This event is part of Red Soul Days, which benefits Break the Cycle and PFLAG Gainesville. The play will be connected to one or more of Red Soul Days' target issues: of sexism, intimate partner violence, bullying, and/or workplace discrimination, to name a few.

~~~
Red Soul Days is a multimedia event in August 2014 in Gainesville to create opportunities for dialogue about and empower people who have been subjected to abuse, violence and/or discrimination based on sex, gender, or orientation. The events include concerts, open mics, comedy nights, plays, and dance shows, and shall raise funds for organizations that raise awareness and provide services related to these topics. All humans welcome! For more information, redsouldays.org.

TWIN SHADOW / Movement

$15 adv / $17 dos
“A lot of Confess (the new Twin Shadow album) is about sacrificing part of your life to something you love to do,” says George Lewis Jr., the nom de plume of Brooklyn indie pop sensation Twin Shadow. “Love and commitment may not be part of my life at this point. So a lot of this record is about my relationships with people, and dealing with the sacrifices I’ve made.” Confess is the gorgeous, dynamic follow-up to Twin Shadow’s 2010 breakthrough Forget. That first record, co-produced by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and initially released on Taylor’s Terrible Records label before getting picked up by 4AD, garnered a lot of praise from the likes of Rolling Stone (“fully-formed, haunted and haunting”), Allmusic (“lush, intricate pop”), and Pitchfork, which named it one of the best albums of 2010. Soon after its release, Lewis began amassing even more fans during a string of headlining club dates (a feat that Lewis will repeat this summer and fall on his “Ton Up” tour), while also opening for Florence and the Machine and playing a number of festivals, including Coachella, Sasquatch, Bonarroo and Austin City Limits.

MIKE WATT ( il sogno del marinaio)

$12
Bassist Mike Watt is the living embodiment of the punk rock spirit.

As a founding member of the highly influential 80's SST records band The Minutemen, he created one of the most important bodies of work in the American underground canon, delivering adventurous, fiercely polemical music informed by such disparate traditions as funk, folk, and free jazz. Although his subsequent material -- most notably his records with the trio fIREHOSE, as well as his latter-day solo efforts -- lacked the sheer impact of his earliest outings, Watt remained true to the D.I.Y. ethos that originally inspired him, emerging as one of the most highly respected figures in contemporary music.

OUTSIDE ON THE DECK: FREAKY FRIDAYS w DJ P-Funk
NO COVER CHARGE to party with us outside!

Big dance party and party jams all night!

FOUND FOOTAGE FILM FESTIVAL

$8 adv / $10 dos
The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing videos found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters throughout North America. Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher take audiences on a guided tour of their latest and greatest VHS finds, providing live commentary and where-are-they-now updates on the people in these videotaped obscurities. From the curiously-produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.

Among the new clips featured in the 2014 program:
-A new exercise video montage featuring a Christmas-themed workout, a martial arts fitness regimen called "Tiger Moves," and a tape called "Butt Camp"
-Newly unearthed footage of the world's most obnoxious home shopping hosts, John & Johnny (c. 1987), and the long-awaited reunion orchestrated by the FFF curators
-Exclusive footage of the Chef Keith news prank the curators pulled on news stations in the Midwest over the holidays.
-A bizarre instructional video from 1997 with the redundant title, "How to Have Cybersex on the Internet"
