I’ve just received word about an interesting show tonight in an unusual location:
Ned Oldham (of Old Calf, Anomoanon, Palace Brothers) is singing duets with Alex Caton, with “No Quarter records artist Nathan Salsburg fingerpicking acoustic guitar.” The show is at “C-FOOT Art Space,” which is a spot I’m not familiar with. My instructions read: “1108 W.Main – go up the stairs and keep walking back till you see it” and a quick lookup reveals that C-FOOT is the space above Studio Art. Anyhow, it might be a really fun thing to check out. I believe they’re also doing a preview of this show on WTJU this afternoon, as special guests on “Walk Right in” which is airing… right now. Ned adds: “Tickets are $10 ($5 for CFOOT members). CFOOT studio is a nice, homey place above the Studio Art Shop; it seats about fifty people. Free coffee and cookies with the price of admission.” That’s between 8pm and 10pm.
There’s also a touring filmmaker at the Tea Bazaar tonight; a fellow named Gabriel Goldstein (whom I’m told has some sort of Monkeyclaus connection, and is presumably a former local?) is presenting “the Mayonnaise Eater and Other Stories” — pressed for details, Andrew from the Tea House says “Gabriel screens and shows his high-concept, no-budget short films.” I’m guessing this is actually a video screening, rather than “film” proper, but if the guy’s actually lugging around a 16mm projector that would be a nice surprise. Not sure if there’s a cover charge, but bring a few bucks. Starts at 8pm.
