Sounds of Venus, SchoolTree, Jaggery, and BENT KNEE cordially invite you to their Coloring Party. For one night only, the Middle East Upstairs is transformed into an interactive art space.

Bring crayons, pens, pencils, pastels, oils, acrylics, calligraphy sets, stone tablets, etch-a-sketches, play-dough, paper, etc. ~ additional art supplies will be provided.

Sounds of Venus

Dreamy, ambient soundscapes with a driving rhythm, searing guitar, and male/female vocals that weave in and out and through each other.

SchoolTree

Pop diva has head-on collision with a ’70s prog rock band and a Broadway musical. Rather peculiar but quite lovely baby is born.

Jaggery

Flowing, galloping, mystical, elegant orchestral majesty, with Singer Mali casting her vocal magic. Yes, I’ve written about this band a few times, and I’m running out of superlatives. For those not previously acquainted, they’re really f’ing good.

BENT KNEE

Shrieking, shredding, sinister, hypnotic, mentally unstable, happy little fairy tales for psychotic children. Not for the timid. This particular set should inspire some very strange drawings.
