Mister Moon
Mister Moon is an alternative-indie-rock band from North Central Ohio featuring two drummers, a bassist and a guitarist. Syncopated drums, swirling guitar, synth bass, and desperate vocals come together in a way that is incomparable to other conventional rock outfits. Elements of pop, rock, hip-hop, and psychedelic music give Mister Moon a distinctly unique sound that is both dynamic and substantial.

Doors @ 8PM
Music @ 9PM
$5-10 suggested

CJ BOYD
Bassist, composer, vagabond, CJ Boyd uses low-end loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Though solo performance takes up the bulk of his time and effort, he also plays in the bands Desert Center, Kurva Choir, Rhonya, and Move. His non-stop travels between North America and Europe have been propelled by vans, cars, trains, buses, planes, and boats, but most of all a commitment to ceaseless discovery and re-invention. His oceanic sounds provide a home for the homeless and journeys to the homebound.
http://www.cjboyd.com/

THE YOU SUCK FLYING CIRCUS
The brainchild of Wes Meadows (Flowerpot Records, All Over The Place) this project consists of many diverse and distant (or close by) collaborators who exchange audio recordings, video art, and jam together. This is on the more experimental side of Flowerpot Records' offerings. Expect some ambient sounds, field recordings, and noise, but also expect post-rock Explosions In The Sky types of riffs.
https://theyousuckflyingcircus.bandcamp.com/

ACTUAL TRAINS
The solo project of Alec Schumann (Half an Animal) funnels Alec's talent into an intense and powerful synth and drum focused whirlwind. If you are familiar with Alec's incredible percussion skills (as seen at HAA's most recent Hive Mind performance which included some mindblowing drum solos and performance work) you will be delighted to find that his synth work (and vocals! and antics!) are just as amazing.

Parking is available across the street from the venue near January Paints. Handicapped parking is available in the Hive Mind gravel lot outside of the venue.

MUwDV - Breanne Trammell Live Interview

MUwDV - Breanne Trammell Live Interview

Join us for a live interview with artist, Breanne Trammell on Sunday, October 15 at the Hive Mind at 4 pm. MUwDV is an artist interview series in which Volk asks artists questions while they create art on his face using everyday makeup. Danny’s face is revealed at the end of the interview, creating a fun and exciting climax to the informative conversation. Local band Comfort Clouds will be playing before each live Akron interview.

Breanne Trammell is a multi-disciplinary artist with a background in printmaking. Her work explores objects and icons from popular culture, the confluence of highbrow and lowbrow, and mines from her personal history. It presents common experiences and awkward memories that we come to terms with, and commemorates these experiences through humor and playful formalism, like a giant papier-mâché paper clip, or letterpress-printed twitter posts. Objects, observations, and inescapable memories that may seem unimportant are made significant through the lens of Trammell’s work. She earned her MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her BFA from the University of Texas at Arlington. 

Learn more about Breanne's work on her website: http://breannetrammell.com/

Parking is available accross the street from Hive Mind at January Paints. 

Made-Up with Danny Volk is a Knight Arts project. Thank you to the Knight Foundation and the Akron Community Foundation for your support!

It's our last Made-Up interview so we will be having a little celebration afterwards! Food and bands to be announced!

All eight MUwDV interviews are FREE and open to the public.
*Video recording will be taking place during this event. By attending you are agreeing to potentially appear in the YouTube videos.

ABOUT THE EVENT:

The AWARD-WINNING Electric Pressure Cooker Cabaret is wandering to a brand new location in West Hill – Hive Mind – for another month of "ANYTHING GOES" entertainment!

Through humble beginnings in the basement of a Highland Square flower shop, the #EPCooker is an artist driven event that sees over 100 audience members, 20+ performances and 6 non-stop hours of art.

Doors open and registration for performers begins at 7:30 pm. Performances begin between 8:00 - 8:30 pm. Anyone – from beginner to pro – may sign up for a 12-minute slot. Performers may pre-register atepcooker.com.

Previous acts have included: monologues, acoustic musicians, comedians, feats of strength, play readings, experimental art, dancers, burlesqu, scenes from plays, improvisation, devised work, full rock bands and performance artists. But the sky is the limit; no art is too taboo for the #EPCooker!

ALL levels – from beginner to the most experienced – are encouraged to perform. Those under 18 are permitted to attend (and perform!) with adult supervision.

The #EPCooker is not just an Open Mic. It is an open and welcoming community of artists.

She choreographs, and occasionally performs, for local theatre productions, is working with Gum-Dip Theatre on their current show called 'Namaste What?', and likes to take a smidge of credit in the upbringing of her amazing daughter, McCartney. In her "spare" time, she loves open mics and is always looking for anyone willing to play an instrument while she makes up songs.

Doors at 8pm
Music at 9pm
$10-15 suggested

THE ADMIRABLES (Akron)
The Admirables is a funky soul band based out of Akron,Ohio. 
Wielding their instruments alone, the raw energy of the Admirables is a force to be reckoned with. Front man Nathan-Paul Davis engages the crowd with his vocals like a baptist preacher in a packed church, encouraging the crowd to get up and dance until they drop. "It's a big soul party and everybody's welcome, so come as you are!
https://theadmirables.bandcamp.com/

BLACK MARKET BRASS (Minneapolis)
"Their live show is the stuff you rave about to your friends the next day. It's precise execution meets raw and freaky free-experimentation, locked tight into an uptempo groove that just won't quit."
http://blackmarketbrass.com/index.html

About Colemine Records:
"Colemine Records was founded in late 2007 with the simple idea of putting out raw, authentic SOUL music on vinyl. Since then we've been lucky enough to grow and work with some very talented artists and bands over the years, and in 2015 we opened up a brick and mortar record store, Plaid Room Records, so that we could continue to expand our little soul label. It's operated primarily by two guys, Terry Cole and Bob Cole, but the strength of the label is quality music produced by our artists."

Selector Dub Narcotic is the pseudonym of choice for Calvin Johnson when he is re-mixing records for the Dub Narcotic Disco Plate series, or engaged in spinning records at a party or other literary functions. Drawing largely from a stack of 45 rpm phonograph records, Selector Dub Narcotic is known to mix the genres dancehall, soul, punk, garage, R&B, rock steady, bubblegum and rockabilly with assorted curiosities of the current underground music scene.

In September 2016, in a collaboration with producer SmokeM2D6, he released his first full-length album under the name.

PALLAS (Atlanta)
"Pallas, a new four piece group from Atlanta, GA, plays music that sprawls out of the same scene that brought us bands like Warehouse and Red Sea. Their strange arrangements are complex yet rely on repetition, touching base with each member’s own artistic understandings of rhythm, noise, atmosphere – and how all of these things correlate together to bring a concrete sound unique and not easily comparable to one genre or band."

Contra // Supercorrupter // Matter of Planets

Matter of Planets is bringing their gear all the way from Columbus to play their intense rock music for you. It's pretty epic, like Krull meets the Black Hole or maybe Swiss Family Robinson in space.

Contra is coming all the way from Cleveland by way of parts of Akron to get down and dirty with riffs that would make Leslie West weep and grooves that would trip up James Brown.

supercorrupter is crawling out of the basement to once again tempt fate and probably explode their amps with a high octane blast of rock and roll.

You should come check it out. Starts at 8PM. We'll keep it moving along so that everyone gets plenty of beauty rest afterwards.

Kent Books to Prisoners Benefit Show

Velour, Valore!

Kent Books to Prisoners (KB2P) is an autonomous affinity group that supports prisoners primarily through the provision of free books and other material upon request. KB2P also functions as a media intermediary of sorts; receiving, copying, and redistributing prisoners’ works – such as political essays, biographical writings, and art compilations – among penal institutions all over the United States. By its very nature, the group extends beyond mere charity, since the prison industrial complex perpetuates cycles of class domination, racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination. Therefore, our acts of solidarity and support belong to the realm of resistance to oppression.

Feasible Easel: Cookout Art Reception

Feasible Easel is a colorscopic exploration of color where drawing and watercolor come together in a rainbow connection! All of my pieces will be at a set price across the board and all sales help fund the DIY space Hive Mind and the dream of visiting California later this year!

Come enjoy some art and FOOD! I'll be bringing a grill (or two) and we can cook out and have a few beers! Some food and drinks will be provided, but feel free to bring a side dish. This will be a relaxing evening of ART, friends, and grub :)
