EOTO w/ Strange Machines, Stereo Nest, and SKYwalker BASS at Funk 'n Waf...
Funk 'n Waffles Rochester – $ 15.00 / $20 DOS Age All Ages EOTO Comprised of Jason Hann and Michael Travis of the String Cheese Incident, this 100% improvisational duo mixes the organic sounds of live drums, bass and guitar through a variety of programs and gadgets to create a cacophony of catchy dance music. An EOTO fan best described it as “a raging dance party that nobody should miss. An indescribable feeling that lingers for hours“. Strange Machines "Strange Machines is known for powerful, high-energy live performances that explore the depths of their music and cater to a breadth of listeners. None of the band’s beloved characteristics are lost on the album—rather, Voice of Color offers precisely executed arrangements of Strange Machines originals while still embodying the looseness and exploration you’d find at a live performance." - Live For Live Music Stereo Nest "Stereo Nest – a one man looping experience project by multi-instrumentalist Collin Jones (also of Ocupanther and Haewa) – played an energetic set of organic jamtronica fusion as the floor filled up and got the people moving. Think Keller Williams gone EDM. Only a few shows deep into existence, Stereo Nest is proving to be a force to track." -Upstate Live SKYwalker BASS Tickets: http://www.ticketweb.com/event/eoto-at-funk-n-waffles-funk-n-waffles-rochester-tickets/7956545?REFERRAL_ID=twfb Tickets also on sale at: Funk 'n Waffles Rochester Aaron's Alley Record Archive House of Guitars

50 Years of Poster Art - Opening: March 23, 6-9pm
Rochester Contemporary Art Center – March 23, 2018 - March 27, 2018 Opening Reception: March 23, 6-9pm This pop-up exhibition celebrates the art and history of the Corn Hill Arts Festival, dating back to 1969. The exhibition also includes photographs of the event throughout the years. The Corn Hill Arts Festival poster art is more than a well-designed souvenir. These iconic works of original art - from regional artists - tell the story of art and life in the historic Corn Hill district across five decades. Originally designed as advertising posters, they quickly became collectible. The original 1969 poster highlights the “Greenwood Area Art Show” on Greenwood Street in Corn Hill. Designed by Frank LoCursio, a Corn Hill resident, this poster had a limited run of 50 prints. In 1980, a photo by Alan Reddig and a design by Bruce Leonard highlighted the iconic Gazebo at Lunsford Circle. Unusual for its black and white design, the poster announces a 10km race and the popular Fiddlers’ Fair. In 2010, Rochester artist Cordell Cordaro created a stylized depiction of the vivacious social atmosphere of Corn Hill. It thrilled visitors and quickly sold out with the juxtaposition of historic Corn Hill homes as hats
