Cool music series happenings going on up in Anacortes on March 23rd. Music from BROKEN WATER, LORI GOLDSTON, LOIS, Ô PAON, ALLYSON FOSTER, LLOYD & MICHAEL, JAE CHOI, DJ WEIRD CACTUS, MARIANNA RITCHEY (giving a presentation on Hildegard von Bingen). Plus dinner. And comic book workshop for girls 8-16! Full press release below:
the ANACORTES UNKNOWN MUSIC SERIES, vol. II: “OURS”
Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 4:00pm to midnight at the UNKNOWN 1202 7th St.
Anacortes, Wash. www.anacortesunknown.com
The Anacortes Unknown Music Series is the offspring of the decade- running successful summer music/arts festival called “What The Heck?”. This new series is centered on a new mysterious space called “the UNKNOWN”, based in an old church building in downtown Anacortes. It was born of a desire for more regular events, more frequent than the usual summer weekend blowouts (which also continue).
This “OURS” installment, Volume II, is a single day festival, an off- season event at the cusp of spring for the truly curious and the music/ art-thirsty. It’s called “OURS” because it is mine and yours, to create a sense of belonging. A woman hoists a boulder on the poster to make obvious the omnipresent feeling of female strength at this event, hearty power busting through.
Performers from all over the Pacific Northwest include:
BROKEN WATER, LORI GOLDSTON, LOIS, Ô PAON, ALLYSON FOSTER, LLOYD & MICHAEL, JAE CHOI, DJ WEIRD CACTUS, MARIANNA RITCHEY (giving a presentation on Hildegard von Bingen).
The centerpiece of all What The Heck? and Unknown events is always a shared meal, and this one is no different. Included in the $25 pass is a dinner prepared by local extraordinary cook and environmental educator Denise Crowe.
Passes and information are available at www.anacortesunknown.com or at The Business, 402 Commercial Ave., Anacortes
PLEASE NOTE: We rely on pre-sold passes to determine dinner quantities so please buy your pass in advance.
The March 23rd event coincides with a 6 week long exhibition at Anchor Art Space, also called “OURS”, curated by Geneviève Castrée and featuring world renowned artists from Canada and the United States. There are some related art events at Anchor Art Space: Sunday March 24th Nikki McClure will give a talk at noon. Saturday April 6th Geneviève Castrée will teach a free comic book workshop for girls age 8 to 16.

LET IT BEGIN
It has arrived! The opening ceremonies for the 6th annual Magma Festival will take place this Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:00pm. We've got a damn fine party planned for you with a variety of beat-oriented music to take you all through the night. The theme is Summer in Seattle in Winter. Nostalgia for that 6 week window of sunshine and lake swimming bliss. We'll bring the chips, you bring the dip!
Speaking of youthful, get to Hollow Earth Radio early (like 8 THIRTY) because 15 year old Ian Ostrowski, a Sunday Hollow Earth Radio DJ, will be opening the evening. Ian is in the rock band Deception Pass, but this will be his first foray into live beat-based music. His album 'The Fire' (recently self-released on bandcamp) was a year-end favorite at the station. Check out this hella twin peaks sounding number, Tranquilo!
Says Ian on Twitter:
Yep! Raz Simone is a frequent collaborator with Sam Lachow (see 'Young Seattle' video) but is also a powerful solo performer. We recently added Raz to the bill after Kung Foo Grip had to cancel, and we're excited to see what he will bring.
To mix it up, we've got sets planned from experimental electronic artist The Numbs described by Dave Segal from the Stranger as:
"Black Dice-ian, sinister/tropical headuckery—rock refracted through several fun-house mirrors and slipped a magic-mushroom Slurpee"
And crowd favorite PUNISHMENT will be performing an installation entitled 'Punishment TV", which includes William's fun-loving party music layered with pre-recorded solo performances from Andrew Swanson, Zach Burba, etc. all played off a vhs tape. Here's a behind the scenes look of the project:
Helping out with the DJ assist will be local genius WD4D and 'Hollow Head' DJ Thad Wenatchee.
BRING SOME DIP. Seriously, we'll have chips.
