Flare by Camisha Jones - Book Release
The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative – Join us in celebrating the release of Flare by Camisha L. Jones. There will be an open mic, come prepared with something to read of your own! About the Book: Flare explores the wonder, resilience, and betrayal of the body. Born from the author’s experience with recurrent and escalating hearing loss and chronic pain, this poetry collection breaks silence around invisible disability and shows us, even in struggle, there is light to be let in. While delving into topics such as loss, hope, anxiety, and faith, Flare grapples with what it truly means to be capable and to make peace with one’s limitations in a society that equates disability with brokenness. Camisha L. Jones is author of the forthcoming Finishing Line Press chapbook, Flare, and a recipient of a 2017 Spoken Word Immersion Fellowship from The Loft Literary Center. Through both, she breaks silence around issues of invisible disability as someone living with hearing loss and chronic pain. Her poems can be found at Button Poetry, The Deaf Poetry Society, Beltway Poetry Quarterly, Typo, Rogue Agent, pluck!, Unfolding the Soul of Black Deaf Expressions, and The Quarry, Split This Rock’s social justice poetry database. She is also published in Let’s Get Real: What People of Color Can’t Say and Whites Won’t Ask about Racism (StirFry Seminars & Consulting, Inc., 2011), Class Lives: Stories from Across Our Economic Divide (ILR Press, 2014), and The Day Tajon Got Shot (Shout Mouse Press, 2017). She is Managing Director at Split This Rock, a national non-profit in DC that cultivates, teaches, and celebrates poetry that bears witness to injustice and provokes social change. Find her on Facebook as Poet Camisha Jones, on Twitter as 1Camisha, on Instagram as 1camisha, and online at thevisionwriter.blogspot.com.

The childhood friends have been writing songs since 2012 and began performing as Caamp in 2015. In March of 2016, the duo released their self-titled, debut record that has since put them on the map. Caamp is known for their heartfelt sound, and authentic live shows that leave their loyal crowds with hearts pounding. Taylor and Evan are two good gentlemen, writing good music, and plan on ... Caamping til' they croak! About Doc Robinson: Doc Robinson is an indie pop exploration of old school swagger; Motown soul meets contemporary alternative. Fronted by Jon Elliott of The Floorwalkers and Nick D'Andrea of Nick D' and The Believers, the ever-evolving outfit features an ongoing rotation of Columbus, Ohio's best players. ? Doc Robinson worked with Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, OAR, Spin Doctors) to produce their debut EP Golden Daze, released in November 2016. The release earned enthusiastic attention from local tastemakers, early praise from blogs and opening slots for indie favorites including Rainbow Kitten Surprise and CAAMP. When longtime friends and new collaborators, Elliott and D'Andrea, entered their first partner songwriting session, a shared love for narrative and natural knack for soulful melodies spurred a prolific outpouring of tunes. The pair recognized this compatibility and called upon creatives in local company to complete the project. Members of Mojoflo, Forest and The Evergreens, George Barrie Band, Hebdo, New Thousand and many more continuously contribute to the collective. "Like everything we've done so far this album truly took a village," says Doc Robinson. "It was a community project from start to finish, with all our musical brethren pitching in and sharing their talents to color in our crude sketches and create a tapestry that reflects a little bit of all of our experiences." Doc Robinson released it’s debut full-length LP Deep End on July 22, 2017.

Elliott has since expanded his catalog to over 500 songs while honing his live show. 21+ // Free

Gordon Lightfoot In Concert: “The Legend Lives On…”
The Paramount Theater of Charlottesville – After 50 active years of hit song making and international album sales well into the multi-millions, it’s safe to say that esteemed singer-songwriter and musician Gordon Lightfoot resides with some very exclusive company atop the list of all-time greats. His song catalog is incredibly vast and includes such immortals as “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown,” “(That’s What You Get) For Lovin Me,” “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald,” “Canadian Railroad Trilogy,” “Ribbon Of Darkness,” “Beautiful,” “Song For A Winter’s Night” and “Rainy Day People” to name a few. But this year is special for the legendary artist, who has announced plans for a cross-country USA tour entitled “Gordon Lightfoot In Concert: The Legend Lives On…” The tour will feature his well known hits as well as some deep album cuts for the die-hard fanatics. All of which are woven together with some of Lightfoot’s own behind the scenes stories and personal anecdotes about his historic 50-year musical career. The event is sure to be a great thrill for live audiences and anyone who enjoys hearing great music and seeing a living legend in person.

Rapture – Jonah Kane-West will be subbing in for Mark Miller tonight. (AP) CHARLOTTESVILLE – Practices for bassassin Dane Alderson’s new trio have been moved to a secret facility said to be located miles below the streets of Belmont. UN inspectors worry the group (which also features drummer Mike Taylor) has harnessed Jazz Fusion Reaction (JFR), which gives off heat approaching that of the core of the Earth. FEMA released a memo last week urging Charlottesville residents, “…the safest place to be during an ‘Alderson Event’ is within 75 ft of the primary energy source.” Better safe than sorry. 21+
