Phoenix Festival 2015

  • The Wherehouse 55 Ormond St SE Atlanta, GA, 30315 United States (map)

Deer Bear Wolf presents a day of art, music, and literature. This one-day festival is to celebrate the Arts in Atlanta and raise awareness for a new artist studio environment, The Wherehouse. Once a place that provided the tools to build, now a home to a diverse and growing group of artists and artisans.

This year the festival will feature art installations by IFLY (featuring George Long, Mike Stasny, and Erin Vaiskauckas), Romy Aura Maloon & Evan Neal, Meredith Kooi, and Nick Madden. It will also feature murals by both returning Phoenix Artists such as sQuishiepuss, Sean Fahie, olive47, and Mac Stewart, and newcomers like Ashley Anderson, FRKO, Joe Dreher, Lela Brunet, Isashah Pereira, and Yoyo Ferro.

This year’s festival includes the return of Transgression, Deer Bear Wolf’s unorthodox reading series, which was picked as “Best Way To See Literary Characters Come To Life” in Creative Loafing’s 2015 Best of Atlanta issue. Mass Hysteria: A Literary Installation of Collective Delusions takes the series in a new direction, incorporating work from writers, artists and photographers into a single space to truly capture its theme of conspiracy theories and urban legends into one cryptic abandoned bunker.

The musical lineup includes jazz ambassador Kebbi Williams and his Wolfpack, Atlanta's queen of funk and southern soul Ruby Velle, rising stars Midnight Larks, Madeline’s new outfit Flamingo Shadow, and experimentalists Clothes. Also, Book of Colors will be performing a super special set as a seventeen-or-more-piece, complete with a string trio (featuring Nick Ogawa of Takenobu on cello), a chorus of backup singers (including Molly Harvey of The Residents), and a horn section. It will be a preview performance for Book of Colors' debut album, which comes out February 2016 on Deer Bear Wolf Records.

Please join us on October 24 from 12pm - 10pm at The Wherehouse, 55 Ormond St SE, Atlanta, GA 30315.
