ALAN LOMAX CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

Saturday, January 31st
at Dreamland
810 E. Market Street (in the alley behind Decca Restaurant)
5pm-11pm
Tickets $7-$10 sliding scale
Advance tickets here: https://squareup.com/market/dreamlandislouisville

The Association for Cultural Equity and its Alan Lomax Archive are excited to announce that January 31, 2015, will mark Alan Lomax’s centennial. Born in Austin, Texas, in 1915, Lomax would become the foremost folklorist of the 20th century, documenting, preserving, and promoting traditional music around the world over the course of seven decades.

In honor of the centennial of Lomax’s birth, ACE and Dreamland are presenting  a six-hour marathon of rare footage shot by Alan over fifty years of fieldwork, from his earliest documentation for the Library of Congress—recently digitized color-corrected—to his last moving images, shot on Handicam in the Caribbean island of Carriacou in 1991.

Bar will be open all evening and we’ll take a break midway for supper, included with $10-15 entry (sliding scale). All proceeds will go to the Association for Cultural Equity, the non-profit organization founded by Alan Lomax in 1983 to preserve, promote, and disseminate the world’s intangible expressive culture.

The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, HELADO NEGRO was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called “peñas” provided a foundation for Helado Negro’s interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Most recently he created a new collaborative group with Julianna Barwick called OMBRE releasing their debut album in 2012 called Believe You Me. Helado Negro has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing their Pitchfork’s Best New Music album Beast Rest Forth Mouth. He also produced Prefuse 73‘s 2010 album Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian.

MAIDEN RADIO is Julia Purcell, Cheyenne Mize & Joan Shelley. The Louisville, KY-based band favors traditional songs from their home state, re-arranged for 3-part harmony (and three of the loveliest voices you may hear).  While showing a clear reverence and love for the great singers of the past, their music is timeless & beautiful, and the original compositions played at their shows (and that are occasionally on their recordings) are indistinguishable from the tunes people have been listening to for ages & ages.

Check out MAIDEN RADIO’s “Sail Away Ladies,” from their latest album Lullabies:

tumblr_inline_n9wv9mkgCA1qzxlbnJaye Jayle  wasn’t a plan. Jaye Jayle was a desert dream, based solely around the immediate limitations of one man’s surroundings — an old beat-up parlor guitar that can barely hold a tune, a beautifully inspiring woman attending graduate school, and a sincere songwriting obsession. Jaye Jayle is Evan Patterson (of Young Widows, backed by a rotating cast of Sapat and Old Baby alum), chewing into the fruits of droning minimal blues, boogie rock rhythms, cloudy synthetic atmospheres, live improvisation, and simple story telling.

Check out the video for Jaye Jayle’s single “The Beast Keeps Cool”:

is the solo project of prolific Lexington musician Trevor Tremaine (Hair Police, ARA, the Teenagers Responsible). Odd, angular, & beautiful pop songs trafficking in dissonances of both the harmonic and cognitive varieties.

But in recent years, His activities increased; he began leading several ensembles and became a mover and shaker, promoting and booking events with influential jazz critic John Corbett. His presence became a constant on the Chicago arts scene; he performs with a variety of bands, including the DKV TrioWitches & Devilsthe Joe Harriot ProjectSteamPeter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, and the Vandermark 5, the latter of which has released over ten albums, including 2001’s Acoustic Machine, 2005’s Color of Memory, and 2006’s Free Jazz Classics, Vols. 3 & 4A Discontinuous Line also appeared in 2006 from Atavistic.
