  • Mystery & Mayhem

    Mystery and Mayhem is an original and wacky who-done-it play presented by Youth En Route. It's a combination of The Pink Panther, Monty Python, Agatha Christie, and Annie all rolled into one beautifully bizarre murder mystery. Bring a blanket and a picnic. See y’all on the farm!

    CANCELLED: Thor & Friends, Smoke Bellow, Exercise

    Multi-hyphenate #lifehacks maestro Thor Harris, known for rhythmically driving Swans and beyond, ringleads an oscillating cast of locally sourced organic instrumentation. Joining Thor & Friends’ voyages in minimalism, Trouble in Mind Records act Smoke Bellow tours second album Open for Business. Adding a percussionist to the Baltimore-via-Australia duo, the record fixates playfully on drum and bass synthesis in tranquil waves of new age and Krautrock. Newly performing act Exercise threads weighted post-punk elements with tantalizing levity, heard on “A Bug’s Life” off a self-titled 2021 LP. Sticking with creature names, a more choppy noise charm emerges on latest Bandcamp demo sampling Of Dogs and Dogma.

    Clem Snide, Van Wilks (6:00)

    Eef Barzelay largely retreated from the public eye over the past decade. The indie songwriter charmed in the 2000s with his band Clem Snide’s sweet, melancholy melodies swooning behind his distinctly warm nasal vocals, yet bankruptcy, divorce, and depression weighed through recent years. Which makes Clem Snide’s 2020’s return with Forever Just Beyond even more extraordinarily powerful, a lush slow burn reclamation of self and hope as Barzelay winds through desperation towards an elusive light that recalls Vic Chesnutt and Phosphorescent. Produced by Scott Avettt, the album offers a beautiful and brutal testimony to the love and pain of the human condition.
