Fresh Paint For Black Friday (Hawthorne Headhunters + So Many Dynamos + Illphonics @ 2720 Cherokee)
|Hawthorne Headhunters is Black Spade, Coultrain and I, Ced.|
But, if you aren't already in the know, here's the deal: Local indie rock darlings So Many Dynamos are collaborating with Hawthorne Headhunters (featuring the incomparable Black Spade) and hip-hoppers Illphonics for a very cool musical experiment.
The bands, according to event co-organizer Kaveh Razani, will each play three or four song mini-sets. Then they'll take turns on stage, playing songs that riff off of whatever came before. At the end of the night Headhunters, who are dropping a new album soon, will play a longer set all their own.
As if that's not enough, the Art Dimensions Gallery above the venue is hosting an exhibition of commerce-themed multimedia art in honor of Black Friday.
Here's the full roster of artists via the venue's website:
Visual Art: Brooklyn + Jenn Carter + Phil Crawford + Chris Draper + Mike Dupree + James Gates + Chauncey Gholston + Andrew St. Lawrence + Scott Mihalik + Pl@stic + Raskoe + Peter Seay + Swiv + Jules Unique + John Vogl + Bryan Walsh + Jeremiah YuSo forget the mall on Friday, spend your money on local music and art.
