The word is still fresh, but the fact is we have basically been driven by our disgruntled neighbor to discontinue all noisy gathering. We were planning to move anyway. The Marburg Multi-Media Extravaganza, originally scheduled as an all-day art show/potluck/raffle/mini-festival on June 25, has been postponed for the fall time, to kick off a new chapter.
This summer, as many of us Marburg folk transition out from Hotel living, we travel outward for some weeks before returning to seek out new event spaces and living spaces.
Adam, Brodie + Eddy, who make up Honest Abe, embark on July 9 for St. Louis, eventually Albuquerque and the West Coast. This tour endures for 5 weeks, and will be entirely documented visually and aurally for the purposes of compiling and sharing the collective experience. We go to spread our sound, and also to connect with new folks and explore alternative communities, intentional and not, in order to learn how to live well, as our selves. You can catch Abe before they leave at their tour send-off show at Rohs Street Cafe on July 7.
SHADOWRAPTR is soon to release their latest recording, a lengthy EP titled “It’s Always Winter on the Moon” .. and the whole package is so tight. The band will be playing some regional shows on July weekends, and you can be sure to catch them on July 8 at Fountain Square with Cincy Brass, as part of the MPMF Summer Series. You may also catch them at The Comet this Tuesday night.
The Happy Maladies are in the recording process as well, and are looking at a release by the end of the summer. This album also follows a lengthy EP format, the music more intimate , intricate, travelling further . Tracks include Lakes, Hamstring City, and Bird and Babe Find A Wire [for which a hi-quality video has been created and released] .
The Harlequins have also been working with Marburg engineers, recording some tracks at The Hotel and some at The Mockbee . They have slated to release a set of fresh tracks, EP style – called Midwest Coast – on July 1 at Fountain Square, be there or be Square [Fountain]. Show is FREE.
