LIVE TO LATHE Saturday February 22 in the Rodriguez Room. The centerpiece, a limited edition lathe cut single release, is the result of a collaboration between Atlanta’s folk super group BOOK CLUB, artist MOLLY ROSE FREEMAN (The Creatives Project Artist-in-Studio Resident), STRAW HAT PRESS, THE COTTAGE as well as BANG! ARTS.
Patrons will be able to experience a long set of music from BOOK CLUB and will also get the chance to witness the construction of a 7” single from cut plastic to handmade front and back covers. MOLLY ROSE FREEMAN will live paint a piece on the back of 30 7" singles hand cut by THOMAS BARNWELL that will then be broken into 30 original pieces of playable art. Print Masters STRAW HAT PRESS will live- screen print the back cover, as well as exhibit work from the artists that they contract work for, including Jason Kofke and Nikita Gale. THE COTTAGE, East Atlanta’s “most delicious” recording studio and venue will provide the sound engineering for the evening. And last but not least, local mad music scientist THOMAS BARNWELL will lathe cut additional plastic into 7-inch squares live!
