Art-A-Whirl 2010

More stuff will be going down than this little blog can hold but I wanted to feature a few music related events that people may want to check out.

The Sample Room (2124 Marshall Street Northeast)

"The Slow Mirror and the Metronome"

"Along the river during ART-A-WHIRL this year come check out the Slow Mirror and the Metronome, a sprawling sound, video and sculpture event taking place behind the Sample Room. Bands playing from boats, video projections, floating installations, and sound collages transmitted to floating speakers, all combine to create an environment that reroutes and harnesses the river’s acoustics and reflective surface."

Presented By: Creative Electric Studios | The Sample Room

Created and Produced by: Joseph Belk, Drew Peterson, Ted Quinn, Adam Burchard, and Phil Harder.

Sponsored The 89.3 The Current, The Sample Room, Modern Radio, Pabst, Fulton, Sheba Productions, and Spyeglass.

Gastro Non Grata and Modern Café Present GastroWhirl 2!

Noon – 8:45
Modern Café Parking Lot
Free admission to all
$1 wristbands for 21+ to drink

"Gastro Non Grata and Modern Café have put aside their petty differences on reality TV programming to bring you GastroWhirl 2 : Muralize It –an entire day of local bands, cold beer, fine wine and a PBR art mural.

Modern Café will be open inside inside until 2pm, but the interesting stuff will be cooking on the parking lot. Jim and Phil are going to be building a BBQ pit out of cinder blocks then overload it with braising pans full of shouldered pork that will be torn into carnitas tacos with radish relish and a few select sides to help set the base for the day of debauchery.

We’re glad the guys at Fulton Beer will be on hand pouring Sweet Child of Vine IPA. Local beer made by local guys drank by local ladies and fellas, a thing of beauty. Also, Chris Brink of Bourget Imports will be on hand to dole out some summer whites and thirst quenching rose for those of you that stick your pinkies in the air.

Our friends at Pabst Blue Ribbon will be on hand all day pounding tall boys and creating an art mural on the empty wall of the parking lot, giving us some some whirl cred and leaving a lasting impression of what should prove to be an amazing show."

On the music end we’re biting off ten bands of varying flavor and intensity. Starting off with Sorry OK, Ogre Smash Death Boom, Claps, Communist Daughter, Chickadee Mountain Martyrs, Me and My Arrow, Amen and the Hell Yeahs, International Espionage, Cokewolf And Building Better Bombs.

Chris from Bourget will be pouring wine samples before Communist Daughter

Fulton Beer representatives will take the stage before Me and My Arrow pouring free samples."
