Burlesque Academy Graduation Show 2/24/15

Burlesque Academy Graduation

The very first graduating class of the newly established Deb au Nare’s Burlesque Academy of Asheville will be making their stage debut with acts created during the 6 week Burlesque 101 course. The event provides the aspiring burlesque performers a space for them to show off what they have learned in class and encourage others to sign up for future classes. The Burlesque Academy graduation show will be held Tuesday, February 24th at The Mothlight in West Asheville, NC.

“I'd love to see more burlesque performers on the Asheville stages”, said Deb au Nare, founder of Deb au Nare’s Burlesque Academy of Asheville, “there are so many talented and creative individuals in this city that are interested in burlesque but are not sure how to get started. I wanted to provide that needed guidance with the school as well as a place for them to present their art on stage for a supportive audience.”

Deb au Nare’s Burlesque Academy of Asheville will begin another 101 series starting March 1st that will also include the opportunity to debut in front of a live setting. Plans for future classes include a 102 series and various drop-in classes such as chair dance and prop work.

Sister Helen Plays The Odditorium 1/11/15

Sister Helen Band

New York City punk-prog band Sister Helen will be bringing their own oddness to Asheville’s own odd Odditorium on the odd-numbered date of Sunday, January 11th. Asheville is one stop on their month-long tour behind their September release, the Jasmine EP, available for free online.

Empires wax and wane, states fall asunder and coalesce, and rock bands form and break up like soap bubbles in the sink. However, New York City prog-punk band Sister Helen has been together for the better part of a decade, starting when its members were only in middle school. In fact, the name of their band is the name of the headmistress at the Catholic preschool that both Eva and Clint attended. What does it mean to have spent most of your remembered life playing in one band? 

For drummer Clint Mobley, it’s a special musical experience. “We have a connection,” he says, “that allows us to interact at a level that I can only describe as transcendent.” Transcendence is the means, and, at Sister Helen’s shows, transcendence is the goal. You only need to see sweat-drenched half-clothed emaciated frontman Nathan J. Campbell writhing on the floor in the middle of the audience at a set to understand that Sister Helen take the role of rock band very seriously. 

Sister Helen’s sound takes inspiration from protean proggers the Mars Volta and Mastodon, while Nathan’s vocals have been compared to both Jello Biafra and Jeff Buckley. Guitarist Chris Krasnow says, “sometimes we can get poppy and other times we can confuse the bejesus out of you.” He’s talking about the way the band’s shifting sound goes from intricate progressive rock sections to hard-edged riffs to wiry punk verses to big anthemic choruses, often in the course of one song. The first song on their newest recording, the Jasmine EP, kicks off with fuzzy, desultory bass chords and concludes with an otherworldly trumpet solo. NYC music magazine Dingus, reviewing The Jasmine EP, praised the “unique blend of hooks scattered among the violent cloud. At times it can hush itself into beauty, while in other instances it does nothing short of ‘thrash’.”

Sister Helen express excitement at playing in the South, where, bassist Eva Lawitts hopes, “people don’t just stand still like they often do in New York.” You can see them at the Odditorium on January 11th, or sample their sound—and download The Jasmine EP for free—at
