SUN MAY 25 @ 7pm: last minute arrangements for a newer weirder america at the Brick House in Turners Falls

Living With Worms presents:

STEVE GUNN (nyc): full band, expansive pastoral jams. ex-magik markers; GHQ; etc, etc. 2013's "time off" was called "an instant classic" (other music), "a record that happens to make tremendous sense right now" (pitchfork), comprised of "circular folk songs that unfold as effortlessly as a breath" (washington post). it sounds better than that though. come see.

HOME COMFORT (brattleboro & northampton): matt v. of stalwart acid rock merfolk MV+EE helms this assemblage. hold onto your highchairs & booster seats!

JEREMY LATCH (turners falls): mr. latch, of the grudges, of the flaming dragons of middle earth, and of just generally holding it down in the (413)863, will bless the proceedings.

BANJO ASSAULT DUO (greenfield & easthampton): probably the most self-explanatory band name since manowar.

Sunday, May 25, at 7 p.m.
at the Brick House, 24 Third Street, Turners Falls.

PLZ NOTE: This is an all ages, substance free venue -- please respect the space and our neighbors -- take a walk around town -- visit our fine local establishments.

$5 at the door to thank the travelers, with an appeal for extra donations for the fledgling North Quabbin Food Coop. Let's say $5 to $10 sliding scale.

XFest 2014: Improvised music, movement and visuals. February 21-23 at Gateway City Arts, Holyoke MA

XFest 2014: Improvised music, movement and visuals.
February 21-23 at Gateway City Arts, Holyoke MA

119 Gallery and Open Field Initiative present XFest 2014, a festival of improvised music, visuals and movement. The format of the festival is simple and challenging: on Friday and Saturday nights 20+ visiting artists and 60 local artists perform in 20 half-hour sets, 10 sets per night. On Saturday afternoon visiting groups perform and on Sunday afternoon local groups’ perform. Throughout the festival there will be an exhibit of collages and videos by Stephanie Lak.
This year the festival will be held at Gateway City Arts, 92 Race Street, Holyoke MA.
“Improvisation can give us the skills to deal with many social and aesthetic issues of the twenty-first century. Although we have become adept at talking about aesthetic hybridity, cultural alerity, crossing borders (both earthly and cyber), and global fusion; few of us have really studied what physical and intellectual practice will make our bodies and minds ready for this brave new world … Improvisation can lead us out of our habitual responses by opening up alternative experiences – new physical sensations and appetites … Although this practice begins with attentiveness to corporeal experience it also develops a mental flexibility that can provide an intellectual map with which to chart new pathways for negotiating awkward and difficult crossings.” ~ Ann Cooper Albright, Taken By Surprise

XFest 2014 moves to Western MA.

119 Gallery is bigger than it looks. Each year we host nearly 500 artists and over 2500 visitors. In addition to promoting new and established local artists and performers, we have hosted artists from as far away as Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan. XFest is 119 Gallery's biggest annual event.

Since it began in Lowell in 2009, XFest has developed into an event for attendees from greater Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine and the whole of New England. This year's move to Holyoke allows us to include more New England performers, in particular those from the active, new music scene in the Pioneer Valley. In addition, XFest 2014's Holyoke location is readily accessible to attendees from Montreal, Western New York, and Pennsylvania.

119 Gallery is growing to be more regional in scope. We look forward showcasing artists from the entire state, across New England and the Northeast. We are partnering with the Open Field Initiative in order to bring our programming - exhibitions and events - to a larger, regional audience.

XFest 2014 is produced by Walter Wright of 119 Gallery and Jen Gelineau from the Open Field Initiative, and supported by all our friends, benefactors, and the artists; as well as the Holyoke Local Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
