Show 45: Jacksonville @ 323 Modernism

Turnout: 20-ish
Monetary Votes of Support: 38
Personal Injury Report: 4th cement floor in a row, no harm done.

Show Description (by Ben): Fun show in a HUGE new art gallery space in the very Baptist town of Jacksonville. Performed with ambient guitar drone from Carlos Andujar and romantic singer songwriter Michah Davis. JD (the gallery owner and our enthusiastic host) took a ton of really great pictures that we'll put up here soon. There was this junk-art sculpture JD made the night before right behind our performance space (you can't see it in this picture, but it's cool) and there's an old electric metronome in the middle of it. The metronome was running, clicking throughout the performance, just loud enough that you could only really hear it when Kate was silent. It filled those silences with this really interesting steady beat. Like a heartbeat, or a ticking away of time, adding a layer of tension and urgency to the strange silent breaks in the play.

We crashed upstairs and headed out early enough to think about taking a swim in St Augustine, which turns out to have been a mistake...

Did you see this show? If you did, write a review, comment on it, or ask us some questions. We'd love to hear from you because we believe in artistic transparency.
