Boston area violinist and electronic improvisor MORGAN EVANS-WEILER will perform at Noa Noa on Friday, June 29th. Fans of the extended instrument technique of artists like JOHN BUTCHER, THOMAS HELTON, and local BRADY SHARP should not miss this show. Check out the clip below to see what I’m talking about.

Also performing are the esoteric synthesis of DYLAN SIMON and the ambient tape loops of SPARKLING WIDE PRESSURE. All and all, it’s an evening of challenging and fascinating music. It all goes down at 8pm sharp on the back porch of Noa Noa.

Before you head over, stop around the corner at Chestnut Studios to see new openings at Seed Space and Threesquared. At the former, the opening reception of “Fortune Holiday,” a new installation by NICOLE BAUMANN. At the later, an opening of 2D works by our good friend MATT CHRISTY. Both receptions are from 6 to 8pm at Chestnut Studios, 427 Chestnut Street, Nashville, Tennessee 37203.

Shane Harrison – Absinthe

If you were at the Gallery F closing party, you may have witnessed the preview of the new project by JJ JONES THE HUMAN SNOWGLOBE, MIKE HIEGEMANN, and STIJN SMEETS : POPCOLLAGE. They only performed one song, a mashup of Burning Ring of Fire and Burning Down the House called The Fire Trilogy. (Theatre Intangible recorded it. Check it out here.) People went crazy over it!

I got to listen to PopCollage practice in my basement. The music is absurdist, brilliant, and completely sincere. Now, you have a chance to witness their first full concert, Thursday, May 3rd at Chestnut Studios.

Here’s the letter JJ sent me:


A new project PopCollage will play in Nashville Thursday May 3, 2012 at 7:30.

At my wife Sabine Schlunk’s studio on Chestnut Avenue near Sounds Stadium. (directions below).

PopCollage is completely improvised with electronic beats and electric bass (Mike Hiegemann, Bochum DE) and classical violin (Stijn Smeets, Brussels BE) and the vocals of JJ Jones (Nashville/Munich).

We weave improvised sounds with famous lyrics from the popular music of history (with recognizable and unrecognizable melodies),as well as parts of fairy tales and famous lines from films.

Please join us. It will be fun.

Location: Chestnut studios are in an old brick factory near the railroad tracks ACROSS FROM 452 Chestnut St. Nashville around the corner from Sounds Stadium. The studio is on the main floor ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE END OF THE HALL.
