It's that time of year again, y'all! No, not time for the Plague Of Locusts. And, no, not time for the Scary Clown Parade, though we've got some fantastic weather for that, eh? It's time for the Woodland Pattern Music Marathon to Benefit Alternating Currents Live. Whoot and Hooray!
Tomorrow--that's Saturday, August 18, for those of you lost to time and space--musicians of all kinds will gather at the cozy digs of Woodland Pattern Book Center at 720 East Locust Street in the lovely Riverwest neighborhood to play their hearts, hands, voices, and souls out all for the great good Alternating Currents Live brings to lucky us every single year.
The Alternating Currents radio show, which airs on WMSE 91.7 FM on Sundays from 6 to 9PM, and its sister live show is hosted by Miltown's very own experimental music guru Hal Rammel, and there's absotootly nothing--nothing, I tell you!--like it on this small blue planet. Each year Mr. Rammel lures artists with the best experimental chops from around the world to our humble burg so they can show us new ways of hearing and thinking about sound and music.
This year's Music Marathon at Woodland Pattern runs 4-9PM. Tickets at the door go for $6 for WP members, $7 for students & seniors and $8 for members of the always appreciated general public.
There's still room for a few more musicians to sign-up, gather a minimum of $30 in pledges and show off for a full 10 minutes in the 6PM time slot. Also, anyone wanting to offer support of the monetary kind are encouraged to call 414-263-5001 and do so.
