While the calendar lists “now” as the dog days of summer, the weather seems to be hinting at autumn (some evenings even call for a summer-weight sweater). Here at the lab, we are working on some neat little projects & endeavors. First off, Mike Tannian, a local poet who has been seen on stage with TLVS this year, will be tracking a handful of his written work in the coming days. Tannian will also be popping up around Lynchburg stages & open mics this fall.
Joey Wright & Nathan McGlothlin (who are 1/2 of Hill City Eye & Ear Control) have begun improvising as a pair (their first set for July’s First Friday was a hit). They’ve decided on the moniker of “Honeybrandy” & will be working out some material for a future digital-only release. Their next set will be at Toolry as part of September’s First Friday (09/04). You can stream footage from their July set at Riverviews Artspace here.
TLVS is working out the kinks for a performance of their recently released LP, “I Can Dream All Day” for friends & fans in their hometown. The show will happen at the Academy Warehouse Theater (500 block of Main St, downtown). Local fans can also score LP copies of the new record down at Speakertree. While supplies last, the album comes with a mixtape made by Nathan. It’s chock full of sounds that inspire the duo – acts like Julianna Barwick, Tortoise, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, & His Name Is Alive.
