Calvin Arsenia @ Calvin Arsenia w Ember Valley, Dolphin Midwives and Sa

Calvin Arsenia w Ember Valley, Dolphin Midwives and Sa, San Francisco, CA

Finishing PRIDE off with a BANG!
Voted Kansas City’s Best Musician 2018 (PitchKC), featured on NPR.org, Pride.com, & NEWNOWNEXT, Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head.

“Arsenia blends His classically trained voice with jazz & electronica influences, creating a melody that lulls you into his own dimension.”
-Pride Editor, PRIDE.COM.

“Jeff Buckley meets Nina Simone with this soul of Sam Cooke, and the sparkle of Bjork.”

But the music is just one part of his prodigious performances,
for Calvin believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational performances and high fashion from the visually striking performer who stands at well over six feet tall.
Arsenia’s height, energy, and curated environments fill the often intimate spaces he performs in.
Brought in to 9 countries through public and private grants in less than a decade, Arsenia builds a scene for his audience and for himself, packed with beauty and lasting delight.

Ember Valley~
Ember Valley began to take shape when guitarists Sohail Al-Jamea and Chris Gray met and started writing music together in the summer of 2017. Wetzel joined them in January 2018, and bassist and recent San Diego transplant Tom Lazet completed the lineup that spring. The band has worked with a revolving cast of drummers, with Jenny Klug of Clevers sitting in on four of the EP’s five songs and Jon Archuleta permanently filling the position in March 2019.

All songs were recorded in Sacramento (by David Houston, Joe Johnston and Lance Jackman) and mastered by The Helio Sequence members Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel at Portland’s Helio Sound.

Saloli~
The sound of warm-blooded wiring, turned on and tapped into, emotive and electric, storied machines speaking through all too human hands. 'a tidal pool, an eddy of melancholic memories, softened by time' — The Wire

Saloli is Portland, Oregon resident Mary Sutton, a multi instrumentalist who with The Deep End, her debut album for Kranky, has settled on the analog synthesizer as her medium for a series of pieces that thread complementary shades of soft-hued hypnosis, dazed modal introspection, icy amusement park reverie, and lunar lullaby into a suite of contemplative melody and synthetic communion.

Calvin Arsenia @ Post Ballet: Incandescent Body

Post Ballet: Incandescent Body, San Francisco, CA

A luminous and transcendent cabaret spotlighting singer/songwriter Star Amerasu and her vibrant, deeply personal music. Incandescent Body is presented in collaboration with The Living Earth Show, with choreography by Vanessa Thiessen and Robert Dekkers.

“Star Amerasu is candid, in her music and in person, about the ways life’s challenges have shaped her. She tackles a variety of heavy themes… Being a victim of sexual assault, turning to drugs to cope with a loved one’s death, and dealing with men who are secretive about their attraction to trans women. Her lyrics can be brutal in their honesty, but… Amerasu remains an optimist, however, even as she takes on heavy life experiences in her music.”

-Excerpt from “Star Amerasu Confronts Trauma with Beauty” by Kamala Thiagarajan of KQED Arts

“…when I think of what I want to be

There’s always something clear that I see

The wind is racing, my pulse is rushing

I’m free like a bird, nothing can touch me

I’m flying”

Admission $50
