McLovins specialize in the creation of dynamic and improvised sound, influenced by the members’ disparate and eclectic music influences. The band consists of Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger and Atticus Kelly.

These early twenty-year-olds embrace simultaneous and intricate improvisation with a more versatile front line in which all members are singing in four-part harmony, writing lyrics and music, as well as expounding on one another’s musical ideas. Set list segues and fiery improvisations are a staple of the band’s performances, keeping their audience always guessing what’s coming next and wanting more.

In the short time McLovins have been performing together, they have been invited to appear at an impressive number of well-established, as well as many new music festivals, and some of the most well respected venues in the North East. These guys are constantly writing and playing music, to continue to build on their own foundation, towards a long career of original rock music to their growing fan base.

Friday, January 23
at 7:00pm

Join Vox Populi in conversation with artist and writer Marisa Olson. This programming is in conjunction with the current exhibit “Surf Club”. “Surf Club” was curated collectively by the Vox Populi membership through digital image sharing. We will be discussing the emergence of Internet Surf Clubs going through a brief history of their development on the web followed by in depth overview with Marisa’s artwork and involvement within Surf Clubs. Marisa Olson is a contributing writer to Rhizome, as well as, a multidisciplinary artist whose work focuses on the cultural history of technology, the politics of participation in pop culture and the aesthetics of failure. Olson is one of the founding members of Nasty Nets, the first group to use the moniker “surfing club.” Open discourse will be welcomed as we move the dialog along to how the Internet Surf Club exists online today and the practice of Internet Art. In relation to the exhibit, we will consider the functionality of online artwork within contemporary art and the physical gallery/museum space.

Marisa Olson‘s work combines performance, video, drawing & installation to address the cultural history of technology, the politics of participation in pop culture & the aesthetics of failure. Her work has been shown at the Venice Biennale, Centre Pompidou, Tate(s) Modern + Liverpool, the Nam June Paik Art Center, FACT, the British Film Institute, Sundance Film Festival, PERFORMA Biennial, and has been commissioned or collected by the Whitney Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Houston Center for Photography, Experimental Television Center, and PS122. This work’s been reviewed in Artforum, Art21, Liberation, Folha de Sao Paolo, the Village Voice, and elsewhere. New York Magazine has called Marisa one of the Top Five video artists working online, Wired has called her both funny and humorous, the New York Times once called her “anything but stupid,” and the Wall Street Journal considers her their “Walkman Historian” of choice.

Marisa’s critiques of contemporary art and digital visual culture have extended to writing for Flash Art, Art Review, Afterimage, and Art on Paper and to curating exhibitions and programs at the Guggenheim; White Columns; Artists Space; the Performa Biennial; Zero1; SFMOMA, where she co-founded their media arts group, SMAC!, and edited their eponymous zine; SF Camerawork, where she was Associate Director and edited the CameraworkJournal; and Rhizome, at the New Museum, where she was an active collaborator for over ten years, and was Editor and Curator.

Eraserhood Tonight > HARDCORE DEVO LIVE concert film, Philly Premiere

Jan 22, 2015 8:00 PM

Philly Premiere of the new DEVO concert film! In surround sound! Bring ear plugs.

Doors 7:30, Movie 8:00, $10

DEVO was among the most thought-provoking bands to emerge in the aftermath of punk, but before hits like “Whip It,” they worked in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio to make raw, unfiltered music that the group called “Hardcore DEVO.”

In the summer of 2014, DEVO did ten shows performing these seminal pre-fame songs, created between 1974 and 1977 and rarely played since then. Shot at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, this exciting concert film captures these groundbreaking artists performing the songs that started it all, interwoven with interviews revealing the history of the band. In total, these 21 oddities serve as a tribute to departed, original DEVO bandmate, Robert “Bob 2″ Casale.

Box Brown Creates Exclusive Limited Edition Prints for Jim Ross’ Area Events | Geekadelphia

It’s evident from his body of work that Brown has a real affinity for pro wrestling, so we weren’t shocked when we learned that he created a limited edition silk screen poster that will be available when famed WWE announcer Jim Ross speaks at Underground Arts this Sunday the 25th. (It will also be available at Ross’ performance in Sayerville on the 23rd).

Eraserhood Tonight > NIGHT TERRORS Double-Feature: Bang Your Head

A visionary poet once said, “This kind of music won’t ever stop! We live, we live to rock!” That poet is still with us and his name is Jon Mikl Thor, leader of power-metal titans THOR and actor in many ill-advised horror films. On Wednesday, January 21, 2014, lowculture and PhilaMOCA will bring Thor back to the big screen as it showcases the rock god’s work with director John Fasano as part of a double-feature celebrating the films of Fasano – BANG YOUR HEAD: The Films of John Fasano – when it screens ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE (1987) and BLACK ROSES (1988). BANG YOUR HEAD is a tribute to both a director and an era of music sadly passed, but it’s also a celebration of the unrestrained creativity both displayed. John Fasano is a sadly neglected portion of horror history. Directing and writing a handful of infamous films, of which ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE and BLACK ROSES are now two of the most notorious, Fasano was responsible for contributing to a genre of low-budget horror films known as metalsploitation. Using the then popular heavy metal music of the 1980s, with its fascination for Satan worship and subliminal messages, as a springboard, Fasano crafted some of the most insane, but also sublime films ever committed to the screen. ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE stars Jon Mikl Thor as John Mikl Thor… err, John Triton, barely-clothed lead and heavily muscled singer of rock phenomenon Triton. As Triton’s band moves into a farmhouse to record their new album, eerie occurrences begin to interrupt their songwriting. Soon, Triton must contend with puppet-demons, intense love-making sessions in the shower, and the Devil himself! There’s only one way to describe ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE: metal. BLACK ROSES is the story of an aging high school English teacher coming to grips with his increasing irrelevancy and fading masculinity set against the backdrop of a youth revolution. That revolution, you ask? Metal. As his students become seduced to the darkside by pop sensation Black Roses, he must fight back against this evil with a combination of his own ingenuity and an undying, but completely inappropriate, love for one of his underage students. BLACK ROSES may not be as outwardly insane as ROCK ‘N’ ROLL NIGHTMARE, but it certainly is not for a lack of trying. Expect big hair and bizarre practical effects! NIGHT TERRORS is a recurring monthly series of double-features taking place the third Wednesday of every month. Established as a co-production between PhilaMOCA and lowculture, the series intends to highlight the strange and disturbing, with a primary focus on low-budget trash cinema of the 1980s and 1990s. In the coming months NIGHT TERRORS will cover everything from gory no-budget horror freakshows to hyper-violent action-schlock and everything in-between in an attempt to establish thematic links between the seemingly contradictory and the occasionally obvious.

Blatstein Drops Casino Appeal, Doesn’t Mince Words – Walk it Off, Bart – Curbed Philly

Blatstein Drops Casino Appeal, Doesn't Mince Words - Walk it Off, Bart - Curbed Philly

Fresh on the heels of news that developer Bart Blatstein (with Joseph Volpe) has purchased PECO’s Delaware Station with two boutique hotels dreamed up for the space, word just got out that he has decided to withdraw his appeal of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board’s decision in November to license the proposed Live! Hotel and Casino at 10th and Packer. He says an appeal could take too long and there has been “significant” interest in his North Broad Street property at Broad and Callowhill, the former location of The Inquirer and Daily News.
