A Cosmic and Earthly History of Recorded Music According to Mississippi Records: A Film & Talk Presentation

08:00 pm to 11:00 pm on Jan 25
FAR Center for Contemporary Arts, 202 S. Rogers St, Bloomington, Indiana 47404
https://www.facebook.com/events/568506316953563/

Cicada Cinema and Landlocked Music are excited to present:

A Cosmic and Earthly History of Recorded Music According to Mississippi Records: A Film & Talk Presentation

A mix of film, audio, slides and lecture presented by Mississippi Records founder Eric Isaacson. This presentation attempts to tell the entire history of recorded music in 90 minutes — from the first star being born to the current age of bizarre technology.
Subjects covered will include the cosmic patterns that resemble music generated by stars being born and dying, the untold early history of recording technology, the rise of blues, rock and roll, and other revolutionary American music forms and their subsequent destruction by the powers that be, and some hopeful messages about the future.

Mississippi Records is a store and label based in Portland, Oregon. They’ve released over 240 records spanning nearly every genre of music, ran a store for 15 years, and traveled the world with presentations such as this one. All of this has been done with no online presence, no promotion or advertising of any kind anywhere and no general existence in the digital world!

Where Hoosiers Found Hysteria: Monroe County High School Basketball

10:00 am to 04:00 pm on May 30
Monroe County History Center, 202 E 6th Street
http://www.monroehistory.org

Indiana’s love for basketball has been nationally recognized for over 100 hundred years, and it all started in Bloomington. Bloomington held the first eight high school state championships playing in gyms across the town and hosting teams at fraternity houses. Monroe County continued to add to its rich basketball tradition through unforgettable games and legendary players. From 1911 to the present day, Hoosier Hysteria has been a defining characteristic for Monroe County.

THE GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING REBIRTH BRASS BAND

08:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://bctboxoffice.org/event/brass/

Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” In the wake of the sometimes-stringent competition among New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.

Following the Grammy-winning Rebirth of New Orleans, Rebirth Brass Band is at it again with Move Your Body, an infectious, groove-laden collection of hip-shakers sure to saturate the dance floor. Rollicking originals like “Who’s Rockin, Who’s Rollin’”? and “Take ‘Em to the Moon” reaffirm the band’s position as head of the brass throne while the rasta-esque “On My Way” and leave-nothing-to-the-imagination lyrics of “HBNS” showcase the unit’s talent for penning unabashed party starters. Boasting a mastery of Rebirth’s signature “heavy funk” sound, Move Your Body pushes and swings, leaving behind an 11-track thumbprint, approved by the Frazier brothers themselves, of a sultry Tuesday night spent dancing on their home court at the Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans.

Eight members of the band will appear on stage, playing Rebirth Brass Band songs along with New Orleans standards and contemporary funk music.
