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.

Opening Reception: Splash: Attitude and Process

Opening Reception: Splash: Attitude and ProcessThe 2017 Prince George’s County Juried Exhibition

Attitudes are catalysts for new processes, and re-envisioned ways of making. To use any material, or even to make work that is ethereal, arises from widely varied practices, but always embodies the artist’s attitude about creating. Furthermore, to act with style and intention in creating articulates and shares the position of the artist. Pushing the boundaries of art informs not only making art but also seeing it.

Splash: Attitudes and Process seeks artworks that embody attitude and style. All artists over 18 who live, work, study, or maintain their studio in Prince George’s County, MD are eligible to apply. Look out for the call for entries in late summer.
