-----

Yardsss ∅∀‡ - www.yardsss.com
∅∀‡ full band performance featuring Krist Krueger, Paul Michael Schaefer and Robin Levy. Regarding Krist Krueger's Yardsss: If you read about it before listening, you'd likely mistake it for a liberal arts master's thesis. Where most bands play "shows," Yardsss puts on "performance case studies" and multimedia installations, including a collection of songs inspired by—not covers of!—avant-garde composer John Cage. All this could be completely obnoxious except for one thing: Yardsss is transcendentally, earth-shatteringly gorgeous. If you can make music like that, you get to call your show a case study.

Aerial Divisions: Artworks by Ashley Olason and Hannah L. Rivers

Through vividly textured multimedia paintings, Aerial Divisions is a study in borders and mapmaking. These abstract works source visuals from aerial views of naturally created land and society’s dark impact. They explore the idea that one cannot truly map the earth, for it is always changing, largely due to our imprints. Both artists use sewing as a method to manipulate. Their use of lines and various depths demonstrate the time, construction and intricacy of humanity’s alterations on the landscape.
