Athens Cultural Center Presents Dust Bowl Faeries
ATHENS CULTURAL CENTER TO PREMIERE NEW THIN EDGE FILMS VIDEO DURING DUST BOWL FAERIES CONCERT AT ATHENS CHURCH.
Hudson Valley based dark carnival band Dust Bowl Faeries is teaming up with Thin Edge Films to concoct a cinematic evening of music and video projections at the historic Athens Church. The church, formerly known as Trinity Episcopal, is in the process of being transformed an event space by Athens resident Carol Bernard. Located at 12 S. Franklin St. in downtown Athens, NY, the church will lend a gothic mystique to the evening. Co-presented by Athens Cultural Center, the concert is open to the public and will take place on Saturday September 24th at 8pm.
Film faerie Lisa M. Thomas (Thin Edge Films) will project a selection of avant-garde videos created with the Dust Bowl Faeries during the concert, including the premiere of Lost in Time, a new music novella inspired by a song by Hudson artist Dennis Herbert, and shot within a stone’s throw of the Gregorian Athens church. The band will perform a selection of original gothic-folk songs, featuring several new songs from their forthcoming EP.
This multimedia event was made possible with funds from the Restart NY Regrants, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered in Greene County by CREATE Council on the Arts.
