Kath Bloom // Peggy Snow // Jeff Zagers
$10 at door / $7 Adv Tickets HERE
This Dream Of Life, Kath Bloom's 19th album, was recorded over the last 5 winters in Los Angeles with friends. In true method fashion Kath slept in the studio that the recording took place. The album features guests Avi Buffalo, Imaad Wasifand Mark Kozelek. Kath began playing music in a graveyard with Loren Connors in the 1980s and it took nearly 40 years for her to cultivate the passion to perform that she currently revels in. Kath's song 'Come Here' was featured in Before Sunrise (1995) and Bill Callahan's cover of "The breeze/ My Baby Cries" was in Paolo Sorrentino's Youth (2015). Kath's songs have been covered by Devendra Banhart, Mick Turner of Dirty Three, Mark Kozelek, and Meg Baird, among others. Kath Bloom recently played the Sound Live Festival in Tokyo (2014), the Elm City Folk Festival in Connecticut (2015), the Borderless Festival in London (2016) and The End of the Road Festival in Dorset (2016). This Dream Of Life will be released on Caldo Verde Records on March 10, 2107
Peggy Snow is an artist and music-maker who pursues an open air method of painting the landscape, people, relics, ruins, and abandoned structures where they stand. The attention the middle Tennessee media has given her while she studied such architecture as the Father Ryan High School, the Union Station Train Shed, and the Jacksonian Apartment Building has won her a reputation for documenting, through art, the passing of historic architecture. The Tennessee State Museum purchased her 1991 Union Station Train Shed painting for its 20th century collection of art. Her first painting of the Jacksonian Apartments is owned by and displayed at Tin Angel Restaurant on West End Avenue in Nashville. Mayor Bill Purcell relayed to the artist in a 1999 letter, "I appreciate your efforts in documenting some of our city's lost, and endangered, treasures." As well as in the State Museum, her work is in numerous private collections.
Performing at sundown, the magic kid smoothly navigates his full-length mazes with introverted determination, leading us by sensitive lantern through endless sectionals and segues; through the gateway points and ports of call founded on sensible (poly)rhythms, soundtrack soundscapes, freeform, and hybrids. Sequenced surfaces are complicated by polished ravels of melody, harmony, noise, syncopation, plot-driven chord progressions, tone expression and color, electronic nerve, crime jazz scenery, mainstream minimalism, and a humble, vulnerable lyricism influenced by folk tradition and the Romantics. His contrasts are strong, sometimes startling and sharp, yet symphonic and organic (like fused organs housed inside his single orchestra), neither eclectic nor divided, sinuous but never digressive. Sunset spectrum of sympathetic themes, ancient meditative innocence, mortal and supernatural, alienation, compassion, health and restlessness, crisp beauty and confinement.

TIME // SARAH KINLAW // +1 more TBA
TIME (Gainsville, FL)
TIME create an immersive and otherworldly dance floor experience that disarms, uplifts, and illuminates. The vibration of ancient mantra and spirit-syllable creates a grand umbrella under which all else can take shelter. When passed through this lens of divine love, rhythm marks the relentless ticking of eternity. This force reveals and dissolves, until song soars above all.
