This release show will celebrate the debut EP of Dès Vu, Anna Cuevas’ current music project. It will also be her last show in Birmingham before moving to Oakland in December. Of course she plans to play here again, but probably not for some time as she lets her journey take its course. Before leaving though, she looks forward to unveiling “Burn to Grow Greener" in her hometown first.
>> RSVP free ; This event is all-ages :)
Manitou will be showcasing their vintage blacklight poster collection from 6-8. Matt, Anna, and Lizzie will also be performing an experimental collab set.

RSVP: Ben Smolin Experience at the Firehouse
The Ben Smolin Experience at The Firehouse.
For this show all willing participants are invited to dress as though they are going to watch a super-cool hipster indie band from the west coast play a show at a small-underground venue in avondale Alabama. Basically you want to look cool, hip, weird, and young.
Doors open at 9:00PM.
The Ben Smolin Experience will begin playing at 10:00PM sharp.
There is no opening band.
Tickets are $15.00. Cash only.
There are only 85-90 total tickets available at the door.
First come, first served, there is no pre-sale. (You are welcome to come at 9:00PM and get your tickets and come back at 10:00PM if you wish.)
There are no drinks available for sale at the Firehouse. If you are twenty-one or over you are welcome to bring your own adult beverages.
A personalized message from Ben Smolin:
I am aware that the tickets are $15.00 and that is not cheap. However I think it is important that you know that this money goes 100% towards the show and if there is anything left over, I use that money to pay the band and the soundguy/venue. I have never once actually made money on a show and most likely I never will. These shows are meant to be true experiences and there are numerous props, costumes, and other such things that cost money to make and/or buy. It is totally your decision as to whether this show is worth your time and money. And I know that not everyone has $15.00 that they can afford to spend on a show. However when you walk in the door you can be certain that I have spent months of time and hundreds of dollars of my personal money, to ensure that this show will be an experience that you will never forget.

First Kentucky Post:
First Kentucky Post is the occasionally-employed name for the music of James P. Fahy (ex-Teen Getaway).
First Kentucky Post began life as a project based on missives and foggy memories. Sometimes these songs "rock" but, often, they are aggro-ambient soundscapes conjured via electric guitars, synthesizers, and cassette tapes. Expect the latter.
Helmed by Seth Noble of Iron Giant Percussion, cnida consists of acoustic drone/additive processes for harmonium, percussion, and various other gadgetry. It's the ocean floor or deep space. You're probably dead either way.
Llarks is an ambient / noise band led by guitarist & computer musician Christopher Llarks (aka c.jeely). His music uses guitar, laptop and tape manipulation to create multilayered melodic compositions.
C has been actively releasing music since 1996 under previous projects Accelera Deck, September Plateau, and The Trust Riots.
Llarks is currently promoting the Like A Daydream LP which Vital Weekly said ..."will surely expand his audience..." The new album follows Llarks’ well received set at the Tonalism stage at Bonnaroo, which Rolling Stone called the "Best Place To Chill" (Bonnaroo 2018: 31 Best Things We Saw).
