Midday Veil at City Arts Fest, Saturday Oct. 22
If you live in Seattle, you might have noticed a photo of me—along with 11 other artists, musicians, and curators—on the cover of the October issue of City Arts Magazine, the free glossy magazine devoted to local art and culture.
I’m in the photo because my band Midday Veil is playing this Saturday, Oct. 22 at City Arts Fest, on a diverse bill that also includes Seattle bands Witch Gardens, Tea Cozies and Seapony. (Facebook event here.) This show will be held at the Rendezvous Jewelbox Theatre, which, as you may know, is a super intimate venue that will very likely sell out. Advance tickets for this show are currently available via Stranger Tickets, as are all-access wristbands, which get you into literally dozens of performances this week (full schedule here).
I was told by festival organizers that one reason I was asked (of the hundreds of participants in the festival) to grace the magazine’s cover is that I am a “double dip”: in addition to Midday Veil’s performance, I contributed a poem to a zine curated by the Free Sheep Foundation to accompany the festival’s exhibition of visual art, opening on Thursday at FRED Wildlife Refuge. In the spirit of this double dip, I also responded to a Q&A for the current issue of City Arts about my experience of working in multiple media and the relationship between visual art and music.
See you this weekend!
