The Ringtone Album – album release and art show November 20130September 19th, 2013Uncategorized
Yes, finally! A project almost three years in the making is finally coming to fruition. Felix Obelix’s album of ringtones, cleverly titled The Ringtone Album, will be premiered live, in its entirety in three consecutive shows in November 2013, in conjunction with an exhibit of my visual art. The performances and exhibit all happen at the Carrack Modern Art space in downtown Durham. What are these pertinent dates? I’m glad you asked. They are:
November 5-16: art exhibit entitled, The Sound That Means Someone Wants You of my mixed media works
Friday, Nov. 8: Doors at 8pm, show at 9pm. The first of the live premiere performances, featuring me on bass/vocals; Missy Thangs on keyboard; Ardyn Flynt on mallet percussion; and Josh Starmer on cello. Beer/wine available on a donation basis.
Saturday, Nov. 9: Doors at 7pm, artist talk (in which I explain and answer questions about the art on the walls) at 7:30pm; show at 9pm
Sunday, Nov. 10: Doors at 2pm, show at 3pm. A family-friendly performance for babies, toddlers, older kids, their parents, and anyone else who prefers mid-day shows to late rock-n-roll nights.
Limited seating, and no advance tickets will be sold, so come early! $7 per person, which includes a copy of the CD. Kids 12 and under come for FREE.
Here’s the facebook show invite.
The album, put out by the Potluck Foundation, will be available for purchase at the shows, and in local record stores starting in November. More details coming soon.
