A brand new episode of Athena Headache is here, bringing you the best Midwestern music that is experimental, improv, weird, and everything inbetween. Brian hosts this one, and sticks mostly in Ohio and vicinity for the playlist, but stays away from the Athens-heavy lineup of the first two episodes. You will hear from everyone from Pete Fosco to Mark McGuire to Lisa Bella Donna. Play it in the background while you are doing some other stuff, put it in your headphones real loud, or enjoy on a long car ride. See you again soon.

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.
