Ghosts of Sailors at Sea at Galaxy Hut

Tonight at Galaxy Hut in Clarendon the Boston based Ghosts of Sailors at Sea are playing! This fun band is described as post-rock/math rock/indie. I love their catchy and moody instrumentals with heavy and fast bass lines. Check out their latest album Red Sky Morning at BandCamp. Their song Mary Celeste is now stuck in my head. Also playing with them, to round out the "math rock" theme, is DC's Numbers Station.

If you are not glued to your HBO account watching the season premier of Game of Thrones tonight, make sure to catch both these great acts starting 9pm! Cover is $5.

Joshua Palace album release

The very talented and local artist Joshua Palace is releasing his first self-titled solo album on Independence Day, July 4, on iTunes and Bandcamp. Performed, recorded and produced by Joshua himself and mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma), this album has been a long time in the making and is a passionate testament to the undying power of spiritual freedom through aural catharsis. Looking forward to seeing him perform soon in Arlington!

Save Iota

This Wednesday, May 10th from 6-9pm at 2801 Clarendon Blvd, Regency Centers will be holding an open house to show off plans for the redevelopment and take input from the community. The grassroots Save IOTA group plans to tell Regency Centers directly that we want IOTA to be able to stay where they are without their building being redeveloped. They have over 600 signatures on their Change.org petition. Tell Regency Centers why it's important to have a live music venue that focuses on small acts in Clarendon. Before the meeting at 5:30pm we'll be meeting around the corner at IOTA to meet people and give out Save IOTA t-shirts to the first 50 people who show up!

Clarendon Art Festival

The annual Arlington Festival of the Arts returns to the heart of Clarendon this weekend, April 22 and 23rd. Every year in the spring since 2012 the intersections of Washington Blvd and Highland Street are closed to cars for a huge art show and sale. Many unique local artists display their works, including my favorite Whitney "SPOON" Summerford pictured here. You are actually encouraged to use a phone camera to view her hand painted scenes, which helps bring out the abstracted images.

One hundred and fifty national and international artists are set to display their fine works from across the globe in a prestigious show encompassing fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor. Whether your passions run to sparkling jewels and one of a kind paintings; exquisitely crafted glasswork or an art deco sculpture, you are sure to find it during the free, two-day event. Pets welcome.
