Aquabear presents Andrew Bryant, The Gunshy, + Mike Elliott at Donkey This Friday!

Andrew Bryant (of Water Liars) plays Friday night at Donkey with The Gunshy and Mike ElliottAquabear is putting on a great show this Friday, April 17th at Donkey Coffee at 17 W. Washington St. in Athens, Ohio! Oxford, Mississippi’s Andrew Bryant (of the amazing Water Liars) comes to town to play songs from his brand new album This is the Life and is joined by Chicago’s The Gunshy and Athens, Ohio’s own Mike Elliott. Show starts at 8:00pm and tickets are $5 in advance at Haffa’s Records in Uptown Athens or $6 at the door.

Bryant describes his own background this way, “I was born 34 years ago in Oxford, Mississippi, to a sawmill father and a church piano playing mother. One taught me how to work and the other how to sing, and I try to do both as much as possible. Maybe the work isn’t as backbreaking as it was for me when I was younger and maybe the songs have changed, but I learned a lot in those day about what it takes to keep going, to not give up. I learned how to sing when my soul was down. Now I find that I just can’t quit.” He has been making music his whole life but has released 6 solo albums (including this year’s beautiful record This is the Life which you can buy right here) and made a few more with his band Water Liars.

Whether alone or with a piecemeal band, Matt Arbogast has spent a good part of the last ten years on the road. His most recent effort Silent Songs is largely a reflection of his decision a few years ago to take a break from touring and, ultimately, to return. Silent Songs is The Gunshy’s first full-length record since 2007’s There’s No Love In This War. That record, based on letters Arbogast’s grandfather wrote to his grandmother during World War II, earned attention from quite a few folks. From Magnet and The Onion to a 45 minute interview on NPR’s The Story, the album was well received and seemed to stick with its listeners. Enough so that NPR did a follow up interview with Arbogast the following Memorial Day. Arbogast and company have shared stages with Elliott Smith, Andrew WK, Mountain Goats, Magnolia Electric Co., William Elliott Whitmore, Deer Tick, Lucero, Murder By Death, Langhorne Slim, Frank Turner, and many others.

Mike Elliott is one of Brian’s favorite songwriters in the world and a longtime supporter and lifetime Aquabear Legion member. Mike hails from Athens and plays out and puts out records with his band Supernobody that join an extensive catalog of solo albums. If you haven’t seen Mike play, you should. And if you have, then I hope to see you there anyway.

The 16th annual Athens Community Music Festival is this Saturday, August 9th. 32 Athens bands will perform at 6 stages around town.

I am a bit biased, but Athens Ohio has an incredible community of musicians. Folks who have spent decades and years writing and playing music in our little town, but also putting on shows, putting up posters, and making things happen. One of the countless examples of that is the annual Athens Community Music Festival, each August tons of Athens bands play all around town for one night. This year ACMF turns sweet 16 on Saturday, August 9th in uptown Athens! 32 local acts play at 6 stages including The Union, Casa Cantina, Donkey Coffee, Smiling Skull, and two stages at Jackie O’s in the Public House and the Brewery side. Pay only $5 per venue, or $8 for an all venue pass and see some of the best music around right up the street. Plus you can join us all for the Aquabear Legion Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, August 10th from 1pm-3pm at UCM at 18 N. College Street in Athens. Here’s the schedule!

nobrow.music.collective Brings Unsilent Night to Athens TONIGHT!

Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night is a free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on cassettes, CDs and mp3s, and played through a roving swarm of boom-boxes carried through city streets every December. People bring their own boom-boxes and drift peacefully through a cloud of sound which is different from every listener’s perspective. Since 1992, this 45-minute work has grown into a worldwide annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations. Anyone can produce this–individuals, arts organizations, museums, universities, towns & cities have presented it.

The nobrow.music.collective is presenting this year’s only Ohio performance of Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night! All you need to participate is a battery powered boom-box, a mp3 player with external speakers or an iphone/ipod touch/ipad. We’ll meet at 6pm on Wednesday, December 21st at Donkey Coffee (show up at least 15 minutes early if you need a tape/cd), then begin our 45-minute journey through uptown Athens.

To download an mp3 to make your own tape/cd visit: http://unsilentnight.com/audio.html (click the “download your part” link).

If you want to get the free app visit:  http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/phil-klines-unsilent-night/id483509723?mt=8

This event is family friendly! Please let everyone you know about this! Even better than performing this work, is experiencing it. Come listen!
