Opening Reception: Material-Object-FormFeaturing: Leda Black, Melissa Burley, Eric Celarier, Katie Dell Kaufman, Annie Farrar, Zofie Lang, and Fabiola Yuricisin.

Attaching meaning to the things around us among the most fundamental aspects of what it means to be human. We value many things not for what they are, but for where they came from, who gave them to us, or what they help us remember. Other things take on spiritual meaning, or link us to histories and traditions. Material – Object – Form explores the ways that artists use these relationships to develop the content of their artwork.

Zodiak at the Listening Room

Zodiak at the Listening RoomIn a cool and dark basement, under the light of the Wolf Moon, five intergalactic spirits joined forces to form a magnificent creature: Zodiak. Cemented together by an invincible weld of funk and soul, the young band is on a mission to gift her audience with a spellbinding experience of intimacy. With members hailing from the District and Baltimore regions, Zodiak boasts a unique audible experience: a sonic blend of existing genres like funk, rhythm and blues, and go-go.

Their freshman album, Basement Brew, “has what it takes to be in heavy rotation on anyone’s iPod” (VibesAndVino.com, 2016). And, though the studio album has been received with great warmth, Zodiak ’s strength lies in their live shows. They bring love and light to all their performances and have captivated audiences all along the East Coast. Hear Zodiak at www.zodiakdc.com
Tickets $15. Available on the Parks and Recreation E-store or at the door.
