    Hi again,

    The month of November 2011 brings you two interesting Felix Obelix updates!

    1) Josh Kimbrough, Felix Obelix, Yandrew, Cassis Orange, and Prypyat will be playing some songs while you drink cider/hot chocolate, on November 16 at the Trekky House (113 Huse St., Chapel Hill, NC) Yandrew is a new collaboration between Yan Westerlund (Bowerbirds, Mount Moriah, Lost in the Trees) and Drew Anagnost (Lost in the Trees). This will be their DEBUT SHOW!!! Prypyat is a collaboration between Duncan Webster (Hammer No More The Fingers) and Leah Gibson (Lost in the Trees).  This show is brought to you by the Trekky House and Special Passenger Records (Missouri) to mark the release of the latter’s compilation album which celebrates music communities all across our country. Now that the compilation (featuring Daniel Hart, Midtown Dickens, Butterflies, and others) has been released, Special Passenger records is taking the album on tour to each band’s hometown to discover more about the communities, meet and talk to wonderful people, film interesting and beautiful things, and share it all on their website:  Show starts at 6:30pm; Felix Obelix second at 7pm.

    2) A song by Felix Obelix will be featured in the CD compilation of an issue of Southern Cultures, the magazine put out by the UNC Southern Folklife Collection, to be available in November. Word has it that also on this compilation will be the Avett Brothers, Archers of Loaf, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Last Year’s Men,  Doc and Merle Watson, and the Lumbee congregation, Union Chapel Community Baptist Church, led by Pastor Jimmy Strickland and Sister Flora.  I can’t tell you how psyched I am about this, as I’ve heard nothing but how hard the Union Chapel Community Baptist Church ROCKS OUT. When it’s out and available, I will let you know!

    Cheers! Wendy
