Third Mind Collective presents "Obey"

For two and a half years now, the Third Mind Collective has done what many folks only talk about: merging various styles of music, visual art and spoken word so the different mediums actually overlap and work together. On Saturday, May 25, the collective will invade West Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and sponsor events--cross-pollinating ones at that--at various venues located on the Carrboro side of Chapel Hill. This decidedly leftfield collective is so inclusive in their approach that their lineup constantly evolves to bring in fresh works from local bands, choreographers, painters, poets and pranksters. "Obey" kicks off with film screenings at the Skylight Exchange around 8 p.m. After 10 p.m., simultaneous events are scheduled throughout the evening at the Local 506, Henry's Bistro and The Cave--which, incidentally, are all within walking distance of each other. These showcases feature local musicians from across the spectrum, with heady indie rock from The Sames, rough-hewn blues courtesy of Jule Brown and a country duet performance featuring the Two Dollar Pistols' John Howie and Ann Humphreys. You can also catch edgy improv from the Ta Tunga Ensemble, ambient musical musings by Polynna and the abstract hip-hop of L in Japanese (who wowed a lot of folks with his opening set at the recent Anti-Pop Consortium show). Interspersed between the music are videos from The Cave's Mr. Mouse and Z-TV's Craig Zearfoss (which will be shown at The Cave), poetry readings sponsored by local zines (at the Skylight Exchange) and a moonlight showing of 8mm films out on the patio at Henry's. The backroom at The Cave will be hung with collective members' photography and paintings, and a dance troupe will perform at Local 506.

Come to watch and listen; stay to get your work included in the next Third Mind takeover. And yes, Chicken Man (pictured) will be in attendance. For details visit www.thirdmind.org.
