Michael Nesmith with D.A. Wallach

Michael Nesmith with D.A. Wallach
Event on 2017-04-27 20:00:00
Thursday, April 27, 2017, 8pm.  Michael Nesmith in conversation with D.A. Wallach discussing his upcoming memoir, Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff TICKETS: General Admission seat + a copy of Infinite Tuesday Michael Nesmith's career in music and television took him from starring in The Monkees to a celebrated run of albums as a solo artist and in the First National Band. He created the TV show Popclips, a forerunner of what would become MTV, and produced the films Repo Man and Tapeheads. He is the author of two novels and the founder of the Pacific Arts Corporation, which produces projects in the worlds of audio, video, and virtual reality, including Videoranch 3D. The long, strange journey of Michael Nesmith is as fascinating as it as was fraught–from fleeing Dallas as a young man with his pregnant girlfriend, to gaining international fame as a member of the Monkees, to falling deep into the grips of what he calls Celebrity Psychosis, to finally achieving inner peace and finding a creative wellspring in the teachings of Christian Science. Influenced in equal parts by the consciousness-expanding ambitions of Timothy Leary and the cerebral humor of Douglas Adams, in Infinite Tuesday, Nesmith spins a spellbinding tale of an unexpected life, in which stories about meeting John Lennon, or recording with Nashville greats, or inventing the music video trace an arc from Hollywood to Silicon Valley, illuminating a remarkable mind along the way. D.A. Wallach is a recording artist, songwriter, investor, and essayist who Kanye West and Pharrell Williams discovered while he was an undergraduate at Harvard College. He has been featured in GQ, Rolling Stone, Vogue, and numerous other publications, and has toured with N*E*R*D, Lady Gaga, and Weezer. D.A. has also performed on TV Shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. As one half of Chester French, D.A. has released three full-length albums, and  has written and performed on records with Janelle Monae, Rick Ross, Diddy, and many others. His solo debut for Capitol Records is Time Machine. Beyond music, D.A. invests in and advises several start-up technology companies, including SpaceX, Doctor On Demand, Ripple Labs, DAQRI, and Spotify, where he was the official Artist in Residence. Forbes selected D.A. as one of its 30 Under 30 and Fast Company named him one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business. In 2015, he launched Inevitable Ventures, an investment partnership with multibillionaire Ron Burkle that supports radical entrepreneurs in areas ranging from health care to labor. In 2016, D.A. made his feature film debut in La La Land, which won a record number of Golden Globe Awards and received 14 Academy Award nominations, making it one of the 3 most nominated films in history. He frequently publishes essays on media, technology, and philosophy  on his website and Medium.  Ticket sales are final.  No refunds.

Old 97’s

Old 97’s
Event on 2017-06-10 21:00:00

In 1996, Old 97s recorded Too Far to Care. It was their major-label debutfollowing two independent releases and a year-long bidding war, the Dallas-based quartet had signed with Elektra Records. But rather than venture into some state-of-the-art studio in New York or LA, the band decamped to Village Productions in Tornillo, Texas, a remote facility in the middle of two thousand acres of pecan trees near the Mexican border, with a mixing board acquired from an engineer who had worked on some of Queens albums. Now over twenty years later, they have returned to record their eleventh studio album, Graveyard Whistling.[Too Far To Care] is the sound that best defined us, says Rhett Miller, the lead singer and primary songwriter. It was a really magical time, and we go back to it a lot in our collective memory.And so when it came time for the bandwhich still consists of the same four members: Miller, guitarist Ken Bethea, bassist Murry Hammond, and drummer Philip Peeplesto record their newest endeavor, producer Vance Powell brought up the idea of returning to Tornillo. We knew instantly that it was the perfect move, says Miller. We werent trying to remake Too Far to Care, but to make something where fans would say, This band hasnt lost a step in twenty-some years.The result is the eleven songs of Graveyard Whistling, from a group that has earned the respect and veneration as one of the pioneers of the alt-country movement, while still retaining the raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit that first distinguished them from the pack. The record comes out blazing with the breakneck shuffle of I Dont Want to Die in This Town (based on a possibly apocryphal quote from Frank Sinatra), and maintaining that feverish intensity even when the tempo drops on songs like the more contemplative All Who Wander. Echoes of such barroom saints as the Replacements and the Pogues appear on sing-alongs Bad Luck Charm and Irish Whiskey Pretty Girls, but bigger and more mature issues simmer underneath the steamroller swing.Returning to Tornillo was more than just a novelty, and proved key to the albums direction. At some point renamed Sonic Ranch, the studio has been expanded and updated, but the band went back into the same recording space. They even stayed in the same bedroomsMiller opened the drawer of his nightstand and found a note that he had written twenty years earlier.The time-travel element cant be overstated, says the singer. It was a beautiful feeling of completing a circlewere the same people, but we had grown so much as bandmates and friends. It really made me believe in the power of experience and that you do get better with time. Were capable of so much more now than we were two decades prior, but it also felt like we just took a coffee break in 1996 and now here we were, sitting back down to make a new record.After all this time, Old 97s also found themselves in the interesting position of following up the most critically acclaimed, highest charting record of their career, 2014s Most Messed Up. We didnt expect that kind of reception for Most Messed Upin the current climate, says Miller. It was very cool, and weird, a great feeling but also a newfound pressure.
