I book shows at a non-profit art space in Utica, NY. If you’re in the Northeastern United States and are looking for a space to play I’d love to make contact and see if you can come to town. I’ve made contact and had a great experience with a few fellow lines members: @Claude, @carltesta, and @n-So @Claude’s group Figure From Ground came to play last year and we had a very nice time. @carltesta played in March 2019 and that was a great show as well. @n-So played in May 2019, and really impressed us with one of his first live performances. @mzero came out with his electric.kitchen duo in June 2019 and delighted us with his live drumming and cool “infinite set”. Our first show featured another lines member: @onewayness. That was certainly one to remember.
We’re open towards any kind of electronic music that is more contemplative. It’s a sit down event so dance music doesn’t really fit. Otherwise we have really run the gamut from beats to performance art to ambient to noise.
We’ve had ten shows in this series over the past three years. The idea is to pair at least one traveling artist with at least one local artist, but lately I’ve been leaning on the side of two local artists a show. We almost always do the shows on Fridays or Saturdays from 7-10, due to apartments around the venue.
We’ve almost always had live visuals accompanying the music, so if you are a visualist it would be great to hear from you. In my experience visualists are a lot harder to find.
The traveling artists take everything we make at the door, minus the 20% that gets donated to the space.
Some artists we’ve hosted in the past:
kevin greenspon, j hamilton issacs, figure from ground, onewayness, joe clark, channelling, stoke, the oracle, goddaughter, joe myers, dirt nap, sam hirsh, bulletins, carl testa, n-So, Charles Miller
and local artists:
PHUNgEYE, Zalatan, Myndsetter, Inside Voice, Craig Blask, Anthony and The Mountain, Rock Paper Elephants, Brandon Battles, Paul Crowther, and Murder Dream.
Here’s some pictures of the space during our past shows. You’ll see a mezzanine in the older photos that’s no longer there.
