The flier above pretty much explains it all, but let’s get redundant…
Aries, the new album from Arrison Kirby, will be released everywhere digitally and in limited physical form on April 2nd.
Four days later, on April 6th, we will be celebrating that release with a party at the Pilot Light in Knoxville’s Old City.
At this event, Obadiah will be reforming to perform the entire Aries album from start to finish. Dustin Milotte (Deep Green, Hypenkrunk) will be joining on guitar. Jakob Esaw (who will be also celebrating a birthday that night), will also be contributing to the set’s closer.
Before all this, we will be treated to a set from Sidecar Symposium.
And we will end the night with a dance party, courtesy of Nathan Moses with an all vinyl, soul and psychedelia DJ set.
Your master of ceremonies for the evening will be comic Jeff Blank.
You can check out “Scrappy,” the first single from Aries, here:
Only come if you like music and good times!
This will be the first public, Knoxville performance for Hypenkrunk, I Octopus and Sidecar Symposium, with an introduction to the night from James Drown.
After a word from Mr. Drown, Sidecar Symposium will take the stage for the debut of their Vaudevillian aural workings. Sidecar features members of Never Sorry, Boozehound Gandydance, and Kamuy, among others.
After they get us moving, we will next be treated to I, Octopus, an experimental jazz/prog import, coming to our town by way of New Orleans. This will be their first time playing in Knoxville.
The evening will top off with the trap and bounce stylings of Hypenkrunk. Their live electronic blend, with the verbal stylings of MC Realtree, will keep you dancing until last call.
Truly, there will be something for everyone.
