Eamon Fogarty / Run-On Sunshine / Childhood Asthma / Sugar Skull Explosion

Eamon Fogarty: A "parade for the spirit" from New York, NY. New release Progressive Bedroom available on Joyful Noise Recordings.

In the words of Chris Schlarb, whose band Eamon has played in: " My attraction to honesty is relentless. Eamon Fogarty has no guile. He is as true as a bird singing in the trees. His music, like life itself, contains the beautiful and the grotesque. Some artists demand love from their audience. I don’t know how or why it works but I love Eamon’s music. I feel protective of it. When something that powerful calls out... you should pick up the phone."

Run-On Sunshine: Recently relocated to Sunshine City a.k.a. St. Petersburg, Florida, but back already for a visit!

Childhood Asthma: Super songs from Maya!

Sugar Skull Explosion: The best duo in the universe!

Murdress |Showing at Filmbar|

On the night of Friday, October 16th, 1931, Winnie Ruth Judd had a fight with her two best friends that ended in a double fatality. Two nights later, she boarded a train headed for LA, with grisly baggage that contained the bodies—one dismembered—of her former friends. When the trunks were found to be leaking blood upon arrival, Winnie was asked to open them. Claiming she forgot the key, she walked out of the station and disappeared into thin air. One week later, she surrendered in a funeral parlor, a bullet lodged in her left hand, claiming the women attacked her and that she had only shot in self defense. Oddly enough, some of the physical evidence seemed to support this story. However, instead of getting simpler the story got weirder and wilder as more became known (or unknown, depending on whose version you chose to believe), involving adultery, narcotics, mental illness, secrets and whispers of a conspiracy. To this day, the truth remains a mystery.

“Murderess'” was the brainchild of writer/director Scott Coblio, a Los Angeles native. The film was shot on miniDV tape and took 3 years to complete. It debuted at Rochester New York’s Little Theater as the anchor-piece of the “Image Out” Film Festival, where it garnered positive reviews from the local press. In 2008, the film won the Best Animated Feature award in Los Angeles at the DIY Film Fest. Screening the film annually on (or near) October 16th (the night of the murders) has become a tradition at the Trunk Space, and this year’s screening marks the 11th anniversary of that tradition

"Andy and His Grandmother" Listening Party

BY POPULAR DEMAND Related Records and The Trunk Space Present ANDY KAUFMAN "Andy and His Grandmother" Listening Party

Doors will open at 10:00pm. Entry is $2.
Side A of the record will start around 10:15pm, followed by a 10 minute intermission, then side B of the record will start.

Milk and Cookie refreshments will be provided afterwards.
Tickets will be sold at the door.

-------------- MORE INFORMATION ON THE ALBUM --------------
Andy and His Grandmother is the posthumous debut album from American comedian Andy Kaufman, released on Drag City Records on July 16, 2013. Composed of recordings that Kaufman made on microcassette from 1977 to 1979, the album was created by several of Kaufman's friends as well ascontemporary comedians.

Kaufman recorded over 80 hours of material with the intention of recording an album similar to Steve Allen and Jerry Lewis' prank call comedy records—his tapes include explicit instructions on how the album should sound. Kaufman's girlfriend Lynne Margulies kept the tapes for decades but never found the opportunity to release them until she published a 2009 book of letters sent to Kaufman and her publisher put her in touch with Drag City. The album was compiled by editor Rodney Ascher and comedian Vernon Chatman with narration between tracks by comedian Bill Hader and liner notes by Kaufman confidante Bob Zmuda The album includes Kaufman's potential plans for faking his own death—a long-rumored prank that he has allegedly pulled on the public for over 30 years. Chatman is contractually barred from commenting on whether or not Kaufman in fact faked his death.

"...undoubtedly one of the strangest albums in recent memory."-The Boston Globe

"...he still resonates and fascinates in our world of meta-this and post-that, why anyone would care about a collection of cobbled together personal recordings from an enigma who's been dead for nearly three decades." -Pitchfork

"Once again, we suspect we�re the ones being goofed on, but we never quite know for sure."-Consequence of Sound

Welcome to Leith

Join your local Phoenix John Brown Gun Club / Redneck Revolt in watching the documentary film, Welcome to Leith.

Welcome to Leith chronicles the attempted takeover of a small town in North Dakota by notorious white supremacist Craig Cobb. As his behavior becomes more threatening, tensions soar and residents desperately look for ways to expel their unwanted neighbor.

After the film, Phoenix John Brown Gun Club will be leading a discussion about the film, what happens when democratic principles are pushed to the limit, and how we confront abhorrent views in our own communities in the wake of Charlottesville.

Kids are welcome! We will have folks providing childcare during the film and discussion.
