Artist Soapbox Podcast presents:
Respect the Work
Stacks Image 8998
For artists and artist-supporters, this is an opportunity to come together in conversation about what it means to RESPECT THE WORK that we and other artists make. What does that respect look like, feel like, sound like? What more can we do? What kind of respect are we seeking as artists?

Tamara Kissane, the host of the Artist Soapbox podcast (which is regularly recorded at Shadowbox), will lead a conversation around the topic of respecting our work as she tries out material for Part Two of her podcast series WHAT I LEARNED FROM 40 YEARS OF NOT BEING FAMOUS. She'll also gather the thoughts, words, and voices of the people in the room to include in that podcast episode.

Tickets are free for the patrons of ASBX via All others are asked to make a small $5 donation at the door to off-set costs.

Give your input. Challenge yourself to identify roadblocks, devise solutions, and get inspired with a spirit of generosity toward yourself and other creators in our community. See you at Shadowbox Studio at 7pm on July 8.

There will be snacks. :)

Movie Loft presents:
Stacks Image 8984
Shake that sweat off with a screening of the 1978 joy that is Rockers! Chock full of absurdly good music, the film follows Horsemouth (drummer Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace) as he buys a motorcycle to distribute records, only to run afoul of local gangsters, with the saga turning into a sort of Robin Hood tale.

Originally hatched as a documentary, reggae musicians and authentic locales abound, celebrating Kingston and Jamaican culture. There's also an extensive showcase of Rastafarianism, and what is probably the best scene of people walking ever captured. Remove ya!

Show up early at 7 for hot dogs on the grill and a dub/reggae takeover by the Sirena Blastco Sound System, abetted by some newly acquired Shadowbox loudspeakers. Movie will roll a bit after 8, more records afterwards.

Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!
