The 10: Week packed with variety of music, theater and fun for all ages

Three awesome punk bands out of this world are landing in Montgomery on Saturday, starting at 8 p.m.: Venusville, Lostronaut and Terrible Lovers. One of the really cool things about punk rock shows like this at The Sanctuary, 432 Goldthwaite St., is that they consistently work to build up the area's punk rock culture by making them all-ages shows. Tickets are $10 at the door.

🔥TOUR🔥

since 2011, our band has played at least 100 shows a year, some years well over double that. this time of year in 2020, somewhere between Little Rock and Tulsa, on a tour almost exactly like this one, talk of this new virus had become constant, the writing on the wall became clear, and i turned the van back east. none of us could’ve possibly known that it would be two years until we could ease back down these familiar stretches of interstate, see some of our favorite people, crank up the amps, and give it hell. i can’t believe it’s actually happening again. at all of these shows, we and the venues kindly ask that you provide proof of vaccination and/or recent negative test, so that we can figure out how to do this safely and responsibly, and not have to lay out for this long again. if you have any specific questions about protocols, we just ask that you holler at specific venues. can’t wait to see y’all out there in the Dirty South!!!

Tonight!

Beth and Johnny are ecstatic about hosting Greg Smith and Thomas Bowers of @seaoffogband this Saturday at @safeplaceforart the sanctuary. Hear a special performance of a few electric blue yonder tunes, and catch two grate performances.

Greg Smith is an award-winning music composer and performer based in Savannah, GA. He's released 10 albums of his own songs and produced or played on dozens more. One of the reviews of his latest album, "Redemption Road":

"Now 10 albums deep into a very respected career, Smith’s attention to detail and articulate wordplay is remarkable on this rich, forthright and sometimes haunting listening experience that draws you in immediately. Featuring meticulous guitar playing and sentimental vocals, the songs often have a soft, folkish rock quality. This music is reflective and poetic, but still has plenty of adult contemporary rock’n’roll spirit."
Greg will appear at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin in March 2022. You can hear Greg's music on Spotify and on his website: www.gregsmith.net

Don't support the abusements band. They ironically support and advocate abuse, infidelity, and manipulation of loved ones. I have proof with interactions with them.
Thank you everyone for donating to Jubilee Community Center / The Sanctuary Every single cent helps immensely.
Punk, bluesy rock, and your resident #sadboi hitting The Sanctuary stage later this month. Marketh thy calendars: https://www.facebook.com/events/3224961774446693/
A few thoughts as I wind down the last few days of '37' I've narrowed down the things I want from objects to mostly goals I want to accomplish, and moments I want to share. Writing and performing with the love of my life Beth in Electric Blue Yonder has become the most fulfilling way I can exude my self into being, and that makes me the luckiest 'human' alive. Stepping outside of myself to write and contribute to the music for #ebymicroparty has opened an entire universe of creativity and helped me to grow in leaps and bounds as a person and musician. Thank you everyone, but especially thank you Beth, Russell, Kimi, and Danley. You're not on here, but Roper deserves an honorable mention ;p The portals to more music, art, and folk exploration continue to open, and I could not be more excited. Through Billy Kearins and our key west crew we've connected with incredible artists, both local to the island and abroad. We're even headed out to yellow DOG Studios in late June to jump in on a third project. That brings us to Dave. We met Dave in Key West while in town for COAST's annual festival #Coastisclearfest https://www.coastisclearfest.com/ Something as simple as speaking up to us because Beth and I happened to both wear Roycroft tees some how led to meeting dave, vibing on musical auras, and then Dave sitting in on our set at the parrot, joining as a drummer on multiple runs (and beyond), and later leading us to learn about an incredible organization LEAF Global Arts. In somewhat of a culmination of our learning and exploring, we not only get to perform at the Leaf retreat May 12-15, but we also get to teach a workshop on creating worlds around human connection. The one thing that has driven all of this. I'd like to invite you to join us for an incredible weekend of learning and sharing. LEAF Retreat is Happening May 12-15th at Lake Eden, Black Mtn N.C. Get Tickets, Schedule & Info: theleaf.org/leaf-festival-lineup Today at noon, Electric Blue Yonder will premiere a live performance of "Sun & Shower" in the round at Cursus Keme performed on Earth Day, 04.22.22. Beth and I wrote this song while strolling back from The Sanctuary when I noticed a yellow butterfly landing on a spider lily as we walked by. It's a kids song, but it resonates with me and my life in such a way that I hear the message resounding in my soul. By the way, if you want to give me a gift for my birthday, plant a tree or consider donating to the Sanctuary's parent organization, Jubilee Community Center. https://www.facebook.com/donate/467900241752176/ You can find the Video premiere here once it's gone live, but I'll be posting again. https://youtu.be/Ty6N3WDPToU If you're tagged it's because: 1. I love you & 2. I could find you to tag you. I love all the rest of ya too!
