A fun early evening of poetry, art and musical improvisation - An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning.

TACOS BY MITCHELL AVENT!
THE HELLHOLE STORE (PHILLY)
((Darko the Super & ialive))
The dynamic duo of Darko the Super and ialive joined forces while on tour for Already Dead's family reunion in Kalamazoo, MI. Their humble beginnings took shape recording in a hotel room at the now famous, Knights Inn. Taking their name from a Das Racist lyric, the buddy comedic stylings of The Hell Hole Store range from absurdly satirical to more serious social commentary on the problems plaguing our society and humanity. No strangers to shady promoters and sketchy venues, The Hell Hole Store strive to better their predicaments as artists, yet know how to make fun of themselves and the situations they find themselves in as performers. There's both a positive worldview and pessimism developed in the chemistry of the Hell Hole Store. If one dreads existence, the other will always be there to cheer them up, as friendship is what keeps this store afloat.
Whether in his grungy basement studio or on the shoddy stage of a local watering hole, Torito provides a deluge of multisyllabic wit, absurdist imagery, personal musing, and societal reflection. It's a bit like observing a psychotherapy session in which the shrink foregoes the typical elevator music/Yanni/nature sounds playlist in favor of a carefully curated beat set, and the patient attempts to keep a partial grasp of reality, voices all of his thoughts in complex internal rhyme schemes, and wears a leather bull mask.
Visitor10 is many many things. This magick man-MC takes you on a wild ride with an occult theme set up, designed to truly Illuminate the inner love inside yourself. Happy daily birthday!

Special Music event!
Elder Ones is the quartet performing the compositions of vocalist Amirtha Kidambi (Mary Halvorson’s Code Girl/Elizabeth-Caroline Unit). Situated in concentric musical circles and communities in New York City, her collaborators saxophonist Matt Nelson (Battle Trance/Tune-Yards), bassist Brandon Lopez (Nate Wooley Quartet) and drummer Max Jaffe (JOBS/Kid Millions) have crossed paths in the DIY underground and permutations of free improvisers in
clubs and concert halls across New York City.
The instrumentalists chosen for this project draw from a wide variety of vocabularies from hip-hop to the avant-garde, each bringing their highly individual language to the group. The quartet uses composed material and loose structures for improvisation, over a bed of Indian harmonium drones and synthesizer like non-
idiomatic playing on the instrument. Oscillating between worlds of Raga and microtonality, to jagged rhythmic precision and punishing brutality, Thyagaraja, Alice Coltrane or Stockhausen could be equally suspect sources of their sound.
Juxtaposition Dance Studios proudly presents:
Juxtaposition Studios presents CODA Contemporary Ballet Company and Encore CO. Enjoy a delightful collaboration of dancing, music and instrumentation from the two groups for a community showing.
"Little Dancer Aged 14" - attributed to Edgar Degas, also the subject of forgeries.
Second Annual - To give people an opportunity to show a broader range of work, we scrapped our original February 2016 show idea at Delurk to give you a show with a broader theme. So broad in fact, that there's no theme at all! We considered calling the show "everything but the kitchen sink", but then we thought about it, and decided... ehh.. you can even submit your kitchen sink if you want!
Guest Artists Maggie Snoke, Charleston, SC and Jason Antaya, Chicopee, Massachusetts Longtime Delurker Will Safrit and Founding Member Chad Beroth have teamed up this fall to create a body of work that at once playful and evocative. That's all we are going to say, for now. You can catch a glimpse in the teaser image. Come Delurk yourself and find out what this strange alchemy hath wrought.

The Fantastic Worlds of John D. Gall
Recent paintings by John D. Gall bring forth an extension of his work done over the past 25 years but with a much more surreal influence within his subject matter. Those familiar with his work may be surprised to see paintings rather than original prints (etching and relief) but John’s unique imagery or “artistic signature” is ever present in any medium he uses. All the new paintings exhibit a heightened sense of color, being vibrant and rich.
