Almost Summer miniTour: Day 6

June 9, 2018

Up by 11am, I slept in Ryan’s bedroom, he’s not moving. Victoria, Dana, and I scour the kitchen, make coffee. Lucy appears, then Andrea. The house is crowded and there are people outside – sleeping in their cars, there’s a tent and a hammock. Quite a collection. More people drift into the house, Ryan suggests a breakfast biscuit take-out, several cars take off. Andrea and I opt to go straight into town, snag a parking spot in front of the venue, head back to the Mediterranean Deli, falafel salad for breakfast, then across the street for Columbian coffee. Their wifi password is “tarheels”.

48 bands from NC, FL, NY, PA, OH, MA, RI, ME, CA, LA, TX and VA. Same as yesterday, a lot of creative energy, an eclectic mix of performance, electronics, other musics. Some highlights Fitness Womxn remind me of Pylon; Tavishi aka Sarmistha Talkudar from Richmond VA; Lauren Tosswill; Ironing aka Andrew Chadwick who is documenting this weekend; and more who’s names I’ve forgotten. You had to be there!More out-of-towners, some BIG names. A long, long day, from 3:30pm to 3:30am, we’re back at Ryan’s ‘round 4am, and again, I’m out like light.

Almost Summer miniTour: Day 5

June 8, 2018

Up at a reasonable hour, Ralph and I sit on the back porch and drink coffee. For Ralph one cup caffeinated, he drinks slowly. Lauren and Alice appear, then Andrea. We, Lauren drink more coffee. Ralph wants to incorporate Art Rat Studios, quizzes me on 501(c)3 non-profits. Lauren and Alice are ready to take off. Ralph, Andrea and I are ready for breakfast at the Scratch Biscuit Company.

Ralph

Scratch Biscuit Company

After breakfast we return to Ralph’s house, pack up and load out, Rte220S to I40E to Chapel Hill. North of I40 Andrea’s GPS takes us on a backroads ride. Scenic. Eventually, we rejoin our assigned route. We arrive at the venue around 3pm, a couple of hours early. Nightlight is empty, we walk over to the Mediterranean Deli, Bakery, and Catering. On the way we pass a bed of Arabian Jasmine, smells great.

At the venue, Nightlight in Chapel Hill NC

  Jasminum Sambac is a species of jasmine native to a small region in
  the eastern Himalayas in Bhutan and neighbouring Bangladesh, India
  and Pakistan. It is cultivated in many places, especially across much
  of South and Southeast Asia.
  ~ Wikipedia

We order salads, sit at a table near the window on Franklin Street. Still an hour before the the event starts, Andrea orders an espresso and lemon cake. “Just like in Argentina”, she says.

??? & Andrea

41 bands from NC, NY, RI, FL, MA, VA, MN, MO, LA and Puerto Rico. That covers the east coast plus a couple of outliers. There’re bands, noise acts, electro including industrial, ambient, dark ambient, and techno, and performance. All sorts of people as in men vs women, young vs old and gender expression. All DIY, talented and enthusiastic. The crowd grows as the day wears on, by the evening there a 100+ people milling about. A new set every 15min, non-stop. The 3 sound engineers are fantastic. All the sets have something to say, all are good, not one dud. Towards midnight the crowd thins out a little. It’s a little cooler and it’s all a blur!

Andrea and I leave for Ryan’s house around 2am. We miss the last couple of acts but snag a couple of good sleeping spots. I’m out like a light.

Almost Summer miniTour: Day 4

June 7, 2018

Up early, 7:00am, breakfast, pack up and load out. We’re on the road by 9:00am, Rte22W to I78W to Harrisburg, then south on I81 all the way to Roanoke VA.

Andrea & Barbara

Walters Environmental Services

We arrive around 3pm, in time for a visit to the Taubman Museum. The main exhibition is Reclamation! Pan-African Works from the Beth Rudin Dewoody Collection. Fantastic! Andrea and I spend a good hour in the gallery. The smaller exhibitions that are equally exciting – Notinorder, drawings and sculpture by Joan Tanner; Bay Fall, photographs by Laylah Amatullah Barrayn; Fire on the Mountain: paintings by Genesis Chapman.

Olchar & Andrea

We meet Ralph Eaton and Olchar E Lindsann, our hosts, at Alejandro’s for dinner. After dinner we’re off to Art Rat Studios. The lineup for tonight –

Set 1: Lauren Tosswill, voice, delay
Set 2: Robert Imhuman, cassette decks, keyboard, sampler, electronics
Set 3: Olchar E Lindsann, voice
Set 4: Bats From Pogo: Andrea Pensado, voice, laptop; Walter Wright, Board Weevil

Alice, Lauren, Andrea & Art Rat

Andrea in front, Fuzzy Kudzu behind

Lauren’s set

Robert Imhuman

Art Rat Studios

Lauren sets up outside. Her set, another layered monologue, describes her immediate environment. It’s architectural. She turns, perhaps in sync with the delay, from compass point to compass point and describes what she sees and feels. Robert’s set is a dark ambient mix, well suited to the underlying menace in Ralph’s studio of stuffed horribles. Next, Olchar reads one of his poems then launches into a sound improvisation. Terrifiyingly good! Bats From Pogo are set up in front of the “Fuzzy Kudzu” floral archway. Our set is loud, energetic and fun!

We pack up and load out, back to Ralph’s house. Lauren and Alice are also staying with Ralph. We watch a short episode of The Church of Elvis then off to bed around midnight.
