AUTUMN ELECTRONIX FESTIVAL

Saturday, October 21, 2017

On Saturday October 21, ANNIHILVS POWER ELECTRONIX proudly joins forces with the Garner Arts Center for the GARNER ARTS AUTUMN ELECTRONIX FESTIVAL, a specially-curated selection of seven live acts representing many varied facets of electronic music. Annihilvs is an independent underground record label founded by Rockland County native Lee M. Bartow in the Summer of 1997. Specializing in a broad spectrum of obscure forms of music, the label has since expanded to include several artists from around the globe. A great many live events in New York, and beyond, have been organized under the label's aegis, featuring acts reflecting many facets of the international underground music community. In August 2017, the label celebrates its twentieth anniversary.

Special guests _Floor_Funktion and Pope Joan II, from Nyack DJ collective {decompress} provide interludes between performances, while Bartow himself will open the event in his DJ incarnation Le Bourreau.

Combined with these live performances, we also present WORLDS WITHIN SHADOWS, an exhibition of visual art curated by Nyack-based photographer, performance artist, and videographer Gretchen Heinel.

Jill Hartmann at Creekside

July 27 2017

7pm – 9pm

$5 admission
Drinks for sale

Bring your chair or blankets and a picnic and enjoy live music from Beacon artist, Jill Hartmann. Raised in Louisiana and the child of two musical families, Jill began singing at a very young age. Her first concrete passion aside from singing was poetry, writing volumes of verse starting from the time she was 8 years old which would inevitably aid in her songwriting in later years. Eventually she would attend Louisiana State University for poetry but along the way, her true love of music made its way back into her life. At the age of 20, Jill started teaching herself how to play the guitar, emulating such legendary folk finger-pickers as Joni Mitchell. The result is a unique and immediately identifiable style all her own.
