Tuesday, Mar. 19th - Saturday, May. 11th
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Saturday: 1-5PM

Jillian Mayer’s practice continually explores how technology affects our lives, bodies and identities through investigating the blurred lines between our physical and online worlds in regards to dependency and value. While growing up in Florida, one of the sea level states that stands to face global warming head on, Mayer has been inundated with a lifetime of hurricane seasons and alerts. In this exhibition, Mayer continues her exploration into survivalist and prepper subculture tendencies that stem from her personal experience as well as a general more global experience of environmental disaster.

Wednesday, Mar. 20th - Sunday, Mar. 31st
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Sunday: 1-5PM

Visit the gallery for the Cages / Logging exhibit – which composes two parallel narratives that explore the processes by which nature becomes a material space charged with intellectual emotion. From the exploration that compels us to search for the natural sources that will provide us with our building materials, to the actual manufacturing of the skin that protects us from that same environment, Cages / Logging offers a unique vision of the privilege and responsibility that we have in the design of our spaces.

Tuesday, Apr. 2nd
$10 – $12; From: 07:00 PM to 11:30 PM

Growing up in small-town Saint Joseph, Mo., brothers Darrion “Dee,” Isaiah and Soloman Radke enrolled in rock ‘n’ roll high school as their ticket out of Nowheresville. The brothers played their first show opening for Fishbone in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. In 2013, the Cat & Mouse and Devil Fruit EPs took Radkey from sweaty backroom punk gigs to storming the UK’s Download Festival and Riotfest in the U.S. 

In 2015, Radkey released their debut record, Delicious Rock Noise. The result was an across-the-board detonation of several shades of rock, punk and wild abandon – and riffs, riffs, riffs. Having kicked off 2018 with new music, Radkey’s sound has continued to expand and mature, reflected in the sleek guitar and growing bass on their new tracks “Not Smart” and “Basement.”

The Werks w/ The Heavy Pets

Wednesday, Apr. 17th
$12 – $15; From: 08:00 PM to 12:00 AM

On their latest LP Magic, melodic visionaries The Werks transcend their funk rock roots while never losing their identity. Poignant songwriting and engaging improvisation come together on a record that showcases their maturation as a multidimensional group of uniquely creative musicians.
“This is our first truly multi-genre album” says Chris Houser. “Each track has its own unique vibe and sound. We didn’t write these songs to please people, we wrote them because this is what we hear when we turn off the outside and let the creativity flow.”

Joining them are the Heavy Pets, an American rock band that blends rhythm & blues, jazz, funk, disco and reggae with rock & roll. Called “a living, breathing, force of nature” by Relix Magazine, The Pets are known for their soulful song craft and powerhouse live performances.

Last In Line w/ Jim Crean Band

Sunday, May. 5th
$15 – $20; From: 07:00 PM to 12:00 AM

Last In Line was formed in 2011, when Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain, and Vivian Campbell, teamed up with esteemed vocalist Andrew Freeman.  The debut album “Heavy Crown” was released, landing at #1 on the Billboard Heat-Seekers Chart. Initially, the release had been preceded by tragedy when bassist Jimmy Bain unexpectedly passed away. Last In Line, honoring what they knew would be Bain’s wish to keep the band moving, brought in renowned bassist Phil Soussan (ex-Ozzy Osbourne) and committed to sustained touring in support of the album, hitting festivals, headlining clubs, and sharing the stage with metal luminaries such as Saxon and Megadeth.

In late 2017, the band gathered in L.A. to start the recording of the second album. Having really gelled as a band while touring in support of the debut album, the songwriting came readily to the members. They’ve created a record that shows a big progression in sound, while immediately being recognizable as Last In Line thanks to Vinny Appice’s rhythms, thunderous bass from Soussan, amazing vocals from Andrew Freeman, and the roaring guitars of Vivian Campbell.
