The Projection Booth Podcast: The End of August at the Ozone Hotel

I guest on The Projection Booth Podcast, hosted by the inimitable host Mike White and co-guest Kat Ellinger, talking about the amazing Czech New Wave apocalypse film The End of August at the Ozone Hotel.

I’m a longtime fan of The Projection Booth, although I don’t have nearly the time to keep up with them these days. I do still maintain a Letterboxd list for the show; that’s a lot like keeping up.

50’♀ / Sun Studies / Nani FM / Joshua Carpenter at 1919
Aug
1
9:00 PM21:00

50’♀ / Sun Studies / Nani FM / Joshua Carpenter at 1919

Four Phenomenal Musicians at 1919!

50’♀(50 Foot Woman) is the solo music project of Rahne Alexander (Santa Librada, The Degenerettes).
https://lastyearsmantribute.bandcamp.com/track/came-so-far-for-beauty

Sun Studies (Durham, NC) is a songwriting moniker featuring the wide-ranging baritone of Reid Johnson. Since the mid-2000s, Johnson has quietly accumulated a respected catalog with the band Schooner & other projects. Sun Studies is a more intimate, sparse affair.
"on Sketches, he indulges in his blurriest folk tendencies, crafting accessible, honeyed desolation and several of the strongest songs of his winding career." -David Ford Smith, Independent Weekly (NC)
“spare, saturnine acoustic folk-rock bears along a striking vocal performance, heavily draped but surprisingly mobile. Johnson’s baritone has the stern majesty of Scott Walker, but it’s softened by the syrupy ache of Roy Orbison...” -Brian Howe, Independent Weekly (NC)
"Sun Studies is folk music at its heart, also hearkening to avant-garde pop and folk of yesteryear, when types like Roy Orbison and Scott Walker captivated with fiercely distinctive vocal deliveries and a daring creative spirit." -Obscure Sound
https://SunStudi.es
https://sunstudies.bandcamp.com

Nani FM is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter currently living in Baltimore, MD. Her style features dreamy electric guitar with a chilling analog delay paired with the yearning vocals of timeless narratives, often dealing with playful and lustful plots. Raised in the Bible belt of the southeast US, she has been heavily influenced by hymnals and gospel and is currently infusing those styles in her music.
https://nanifm.bandcamp.com/album/objects-that-we-found-in-the-well
https://vimeo.com/234246010

Joshua Carpenter (Asheville, NC) has done stints with Floating Action, The Nein, and even a handful of gigs here and there with cult-hero-turned-phenomenon Rodriguez. The Asheville, NC resident currently plays with Schooner, Better Twin, & Emily Easterly in addition to writing and performing under his own name. Carpenter has released two under-the-radar-but-stellar solo albums, Full Flight, in 2011, and Prey Tells, in 2017.
"Carpenter’s aesthetic lends itself to Big Star’s memorable hooks with the wry, eviscerating wit of Andy Partridge. Catchy, cerebral, and a bit pugnacious. …traces back through songsmiths Tobin Sprout and Matthew Sweet to Robyn Hitchcock and Ray Davies - nostalgia obsessives unafraid to dress their melancholy in pop trappings." -John Schacht, Independent Weekly (NC)

Barrelhouse Conversations & Connections: Who We Write For

Barrelhouse Conversations & Connections: Who We Write For

Who We Write For: Queer Writers On Their Intended Audience

In this panel, four queer writers discuss their ideal audience. Do we feel a responsibility to any community? Do we write for a queer or a non-queer audience? Questions of audience are complex for  any writer, but particularly for writers who are part of any marginalized group. There’s the broader question of whether we want to educate people who don’t share our (or parts of our) identity, or if we want people who do to feel seen. But the reasons behind who we write for are also highly personal. This will be a fascinating discussion amongst great, thoughtful writers.

Featuring

Saida Agostini

Listen Up, Trans Witches 

An exercise in speaking powerful truths, this session is intended to provide space for trans and non-binary witches to share our stories of surviving in the interstices, of developing our practices while navigating gender and sexual identities in the “real” world. Where do we belong? How do we find our way to that place? Guided by a timer, each speaker may relate a story of exploration and magic. In the spirit of open exchange, this session is designed to be open to all who would like to listen, although we request that only trans and non-binary people speak during the session.
