Cool off in South Austin's country as visiting artists perform intimate, high energy sets!
Marcus Jade - This bluesy singer/songwriter immersed himself in Indianapolis' eclectic music and art scene growing up and performed everything from house shows, underground and basement sets to DIY venues. A regular Artery performer, Marcus organizes showcases ranging from Black Power Potluck Dinners to Robert Johnson discussion showcases. With several EPs already under his belt, Marcus Jade is going places fast.
Taylor Plas - An Americana/Soul/Folk singer/songwriter. Her work has been described as “raw," "powerful," "controlled chaos;" this performance artist takes you on a journey through the senses with her dark, haunting sound and dedication to truthful theatrical storytelling as she channels the emotional depths heard before in the voices of Patsy Cline, Sharon Jones, Etta James, Gillian Welch and Dinah Washington. Her haunting vocal stylings can be heard with the Noise Downstairs, a Brooklyn-based soul/pop band, with Mama Juke, a pop/roots/country band with regular gigs around the city, as a folk/soul duo with Rashad "Downtown" Brown, and performing solo at any number of local venues, house shows, DIY spaces and Artery-Powered Showcases throughout New York and major cities in the US. She is currently arranging new songs for a debut album, due out early 2019.
Christoph Carr - Anti corporate, pro creative multi media conceptual artist, show booker and organizer. Founder of Brooklyn Wildlife, a Creative Services Firm that has organized hundreds of shows annually last year. Chris's work explores concepts like political economy, social stratification, race, class, gender, love, sex, fear, technology, and semiotics. From Chris: "I rap, take photos, make synthesizer drone music, I am a documentarian as well as fine art photographer. Music and art are an expression of love and my goal is to share it with as many people as possible." Re: Artery, "I love intimate shows and unique, once in a life time experiences with artists. My goal for the next year is to rap and present more art to people than I ever have by going into homes, playing rooftops and small gatherings at a high frequency... I wanna play more shows than anybody."
