MAGIC PICTURES PRESENTS is our first edition of a music festival, taking place at the First Unitarian Church on Friday July 22nd 2016. We are spending more time on our band EVIL SWORD this year and decided to create a context for our music the same way we have created a context for our visual art in our gallery space through group exhibitions.
We choose to focus on regional performances that share our interest in theatrics, spectacle, and awe. We wanted to give what we think is a great context for the the kind of performances we love, and to encourage our favorite acts to go beyond what is expected at a show!
The show will be performed in the round - every band will be set up on the floor and ready to play! There will be no pauses between the acts, and bands will cycle around the room - surprises will be revealed throughout the night! As Bilbo Baggins would slyly say before his 111th birthday party, "This will be a night to remember!"
