Eric Slick Opening for Ahleuchatistas at JB's Aug. 16

Eric Slick has always held things down on the skins for bands like Dr. Dog, Nightlands, Norwegian Arms, and The Adrian Belew Trio. And with Lithuania, he has certainly been building his comfort level and experience, enjoying the warmth of lights from the front of the stage. Slick recently dropped a new solo track called, "No," a tasty, pop morsel of disenchantment that's off his upcoming album, Palisades. Tonight, he'll be opening for avant-rock Asheville, NC duo Ahleuchatistas and Mary Lattimore at Johnny Brenda's. Also along for the odd, sonic adventure is Shimmer. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

New Music Video: "A Beautiful One" - Former Belle

Zooming in from a universal perspective down to ground level, Jon Lewis creates a simple yet telling animated narrative in the video for Former Belle's “A Beautiful One”. The track is featured on Foreign Bed, which was released earlier this year via Randm Records. The stop-motion images that unfold carry a natural, nostalgic air as Bruno Catrambone (CRUISR) spends quality time in nature with his dog. However, that meteor at the start of the visual excursion provides for an explosive twist at the conclusion.
