Last fall, when the entertainment industry was in limbo and even concerts in Montana were still non-existent, local musicians Halladay Quist, Erica von Kleist and Sarina Hart started playing together as a fun way to kill time, knowing that the pandemic would not allow them to seriously start a project or play shows in the near future.

But in the spring, they had a set roster, a band name, a glamorous look, and uplifting energy. They performed their first show at Whitefish’s Great Northern Bar in May, adorned with sequins and cat ears.

“We had a really fun evening and we just started to realize the potential of what we had and the energy of the crowd was super energetic and excited,” Quist said. “They got what we were trying to do. “

With von Kleist on bass, Quist on electric guitar and Hart on drums, while collaborating in a three-way harmony, the trio formed a glam rock group. Releasing a powerful feminine energy with a playful stage presence, they perform original songs with names like “Sexy Ginger” and “Go (expletive) Yourself” as well as covers from artists such as John Legend, Johnny Cash and a punk version. of “Britney Spears” Toxic “, where they meow like cats.

On September 24, Mynxx will release their debut EP, which they recorded in one day last spring with seven songs, including three originals, while playing an EP at the Remington in Whitefish on the same day.

Von Kleist attributes the band’s rapid turnaround to their background in the music industry. As a classically trained jazz musician, von Kleist has been involved in a wide range of projects throughout her career and spends much of her time performing in New York City. Quist is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, performing regularly in Flathead Valley concerts, and Hart has a background in theater and acting, most recently playing drums for the band, Sapphire Shakedown.

“Half of a project like this is the whole backend,” von Kleist said. “It’s rehearsing, doing marketing, calling venues, it’s making things happen. This is why we were able to succeed so quickly. It’s because we know how to light the fire under our buttocks.

After performing in the musical capitals of the country, Quist remembers some negative experiences and was ready to play with other like-minded musicians.

“I’ve always dreamed of an all-female group,” Quist said. “There are a lot of experiences I have had in LA and Nashville where I encountered toxic old world masculinity. I was so ready to have such a more open environment, and working with these ladies has been amazing.

Hart describes their music and stage presence as fun and lively, entertaining the crowd with silly meows and lyrics, including a song called “Hairball,” which was written by fourth graders who Quist taught at Deer Park Elementary School.

“It’s filled with a lot of playfulness,” Hart said. “We take music very seriously, but we give people cat ears at shows and there’s also such a upbeat, upbeat vibe that people hug. “

In addition to an album and live performances, Mynxx also collaborated with local tattoo and body art store Knawdy and released a music video for “Who Did That To You?” by John Legend. They also filmed their last show at Glacier Lanes and plan to use the footage for other clips.

While Quist, von Kleist, and Hart are all seasoned musicians, Mynxx is a different project than anything they’ve done before. Von Kleist just picked up bass guitar for the first time when they started jamming together, Hart hasn’t had the opportunity to work on harmonies in previous projects and in Quist’s life playing music, she says it’s the most fun she’s ever had. to organise.

“We’re not a girl’s rock band,” von Kleist said. “We are a rock band.

Mynxx will perform his EP launch party at The Remington on September 24 at 9:30 p.m. in Whitefish.

Charlotte’s youth program launches documentary “Behind the Ink” – WSOC TV Tue, 21 Sep 2021 03:02:00 +0000

“Behind the ink” is a one-of-a-kind film directed by Charlotte students and creatives with the aim of exploring the untold stories of those who are inked. The documentary will debut on Saturday, September 25 in Charlotte.

The documentary was produced and shot in Charlotte by Create an exhibition through the arts.

Create Exhibition Through The Arts is a non-profit organization designed to educate and mentor young people by creating opportunities in the arts.

“Behind the Ink” was born out of a student-led photo exhibition launched over ten years ago.

The documentary explores tattoos and interviews explain why some choose to use their body as a canvas.

Among those featured is Anthony Morrow, a former Charlotte Latin School student and former NBA star. Passionate about tattooing, he shares his knowledge of the art form and personal stories of his tattoo journey during the 32-minute documentary.

“Having the students work on a documentary and having their work showcased in galleries and the documentary is an extreme accomplishment,” said Mark Pendergrass, Founder of ACE and Executive Director of “Behind the Ink”. “It’s impactful for the students, the instructors and also the participants who probably didn’t think that by getting a tattoo it would be presented in a documentary.”

People of all ages, races and socio-economic backgrounds reveal stories, ideas, joy and pain behind their ink.

“Behind the Ink” draws close to people whose body art ranges from playful designs to deep memorials for lost loved ones – all with distinct purposes and meanings.

In addition, more than 30 images will be featured in a mural on the Charlotte Uptown.

“It’s amazing to realize that something we’ve been doing for 10 years like studying, taking photos, learning photography, interviewing people has become a living documentary and a huge exhibition on a public building,” said Pendergrass.

The table book “Behind the Ink” accompanies the release of the docuseries.

The subjects of the documentary and other notable faces – such as Dutchess Lattimore, tattoo artist and owner of Pretty-N-Ink – will be featured on the pages of the edition along with detailed and up-close photos of their canvases.

The book, also entirely shot and conceptualized by CEA instructors and students, contains dozens of photos of various subjects as well as expressive descriptions of their body art in their own words.

“In an age where art is rarely shown in schools, it’s important to show another side of it… something really enjoyable, like sharing people’s stories,” Pendergrass said. “It’s a diverse group: ethnicity, race, age. We share stories of people who are not alike but have one thing in common.

“Behind the Ink” merchandise and the Coffee Table Book debuted in the spring and can be purchased at Proceeds will go to CEA to build on nearly 20 years of teaching photography, mentoring and empowerment through the arts to students.

The documentary was recently shortlisted for screening at the CineOdyssey Film Festival, which features various contemporary films and cutting-edge work by color filmmakers from the African, Caribbean, Latin, Asian and Native American diasporas, as well as the United States.

The documentary will screen at Victoria Yards, an outdoor venue located at 408 North Tryon Street in the upscale neighborhoods, on Saturdays from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Doors open at 6.30 p.m. and film starts at 8 p.m. Mask required.

Thomas Demand: Mirror without memory / Spiritual work: duration, difficulty and affect – Announcements Mon, 20 Sep 2021 04:22:14 +0000

The Garage Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to present two fall exhibitions, both of which opened on September 10 and will remain on view until January 30, 2022.

Thomas asks. Mirror without memory

Mirror without memory is Thomas Demand’s first exhibition in Russia. It is made up of intentionally fragmented sections spread over two floors of the museum. The conceptual photographer is best known for his life-size cardboard reproductions of symbolic scenes, often taken from current events, which he constructs, photographs and destroys. The philosopher Jacques Rancière described Demand’s work as a “mirror” that reflects the void, hence the title of the show.

Demand sets exclude human figures or visible action and live in their photographs as autonomous units that come together in formal or substantial syncopations. To this end, a number of works in Mirror without memory are accompanied by comments which aim to trigger mnemonic mechanisms in reaction to certain events and images.

The core of the exhibition spans two decades of Demand practice, from 1991 to 2021. The most recent work is a series on Edward Snowden that the artist created specifically for his presentation at the Garage. Therefore, Mirror without memory is a complex systemic reflection on reality, unreliable memory, and the vague consensus about events of one kind or another.

The exhibition also presents works by filmmaker, writer and ideologue of the new German cinema Alexander Kluge, projected on three suspended sculptures. These floating cinema pavilions, which were designed by Demand and make a distant reference to the creation of constructivist forms, serve as the receptacle for Kluge’s video suites-interpretations of three of Demand’s works presented in the exhibition: Deposit, Five globes, and Ruin / Ruin.

The ground floor is focused on the concept of models and modeling. In interaction with architects (the Japanese firm SANAA and the Anglo-Swiss firm Caruso St John Architects), the artist presents a complete exploration of the model: its life cycles, its internal dynamics, the regimes of its synchronization with physical reality. .

Spiritual work: duration, difficulty and affect
In memory of Nikita Alexeev (1953-2021)

Artists: Chingiz Aidarov, Vyacheslav Akhunov, Yuri Albert, Nikita Alexeev, Luchezar Boyadjiev, André Cadere, Eugenijus Antanas Cukermanas, Gino De Dominicis, Duan Yingmei, He Yunchang, Hamlet Hovsepian, Tehching Hsieh, On Kawara, Kohy Elguang Kovov, On Kawara , Andrey Kuzkin, Tetsuya Noda, Roman Opałka, Nam June Paik, Ghenadie Popescu, RASSIM®, Yoshiko Shimada, Mihai Stanescu, Fiete Stolte, Sun Furong, Melati Suryodarmo, Vyacheslav-Yura Useinov, Alexander Yulikov, Zhou Bin

The exhibition Mind work brings together around thirty artists from different generations from Southeast and Central Asia, the Caucasus and Eastern and Western Europe, whose works explore the most important and complex substance known of man: time and its duration. Through the artist’s body or the act of making and showing art, these works explore the possible forms of the expression of time through art. There are attempts to archive time, slow it down or speed it up, stretch it, repeat it and loop it until it implodes, questioning how we perceive continuity and the gradual flow of time.

The English title of the exhibition, Mind work, is borrowed from the eponymous video essay by British performance historian and curator Adrian Heathfield, in which he analyzes a specific type of artist’s work based on overcoming forces such as time or natural phenomena. By examining time through the dimension of the spirit, the exhibition explores the many different aspects of what duration can mean. Still Mind work, like the artist Melati Suryodarmo pointed out, does not concern the spirit itself (at least not in the religious and transcendent sense of the term) but the principle underlying the realization and the execution of certain works which betray a practice of spirit.

Such a sustained practice of the mind is invariably found in the “body”, which becomes one of the central objects of representation of the exhibition. This is reflected in the narrative, which starts from endurance and radical body art and moves on to conceptual and bodily practices, creating a variety of sometimes non-linear connections between different artistic traditions and particular works. However, the scenography of the exhibition encourages the viewer to experience each work in itself, in an intimate space which is reminiscent of a monastic cell. In this exhibition, categories such as time, endurance and work of the mind become tangible and reveal their close connection with each other, showing that works of art are inherently demanding, whether in terms work of the artist or effort and attention of the viewer.

A virtual tour of the two exhibitions is available for streaming in English here. Mirror without memory is organized by Katya Inozemtseva, chief curator of the garage. Mind work is organized by Snejana Krasteva and Andrey Misiano, both curators of the Garage.

]]> Zimbabwean makes ice cream for Africa in 600 flavors Sun, 19 Sep 2021 06:27:21 +0000

Cape Town – Zimbabwe-born Tapiwa Guzha used his PhD in Molecular Biology to create over 600 inventive ice cream flavors, ranging from baobab to edible clay and bitter leaf.

According to a recent BBC News report, Guzha, who owns an ice cream restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa, said he wanted Africans to be proud of their heritage, hence the creation of these different flavors of ice cream.

Guzha says that as he grew up he ate the fruits and vegetables from his grandmother’s bountiful garden. He was surrounded by native products such as baobab, fennel, monkey orange, and masawu fruit. But at school, other children made fun of his food, he told Beautiful

According to reports, Guzha was inspired to experiment with dry ice to create the frozen treat, while using native African flavors such as edible clay and tamarind. Through TAPI TAPI Desserts, its frozen bistro in Cape Town, Tapiwa wants Africans to celebrate their heritage.

In a recent interview with Beautiful, he said: “I hope that by normalizing cultural dishes, I can inspire more positive attitudes and esteem in the African people,” Guzha said.

He said he always liked to create beauty with my hands. Whether it’s making food, creating physical objects, body art, or handwriting, I’ve always enjoyed the visual world and what I can contribute to it.

Its unique ice creams are also available on the food ordering and delivery platform, Uber Eats.

Speaking to BBC News Focus on Africa, Guzha said that “there is an opportunity to decolonize the food landscape of the city, the country and even the continent”.

How to open a tattoo parlor in California Sat, 18 Sep 2021 11:41:32 +0000

California is known for its cool vibe and laid back attitude, so it’s no surprise that it has a thriving tattoo community. With a multitude of stores and their tattoo style, opening your own can feel overwhelming.

If you are ambitious enough to open your own tattoo studio, you will have control over its tattoo artists and artistic direction, but you will also have to obey certain laws to maintain and improve your business.

Here are some tips that can help you if you are considering opening a tattoo parlor in California.

Name your business, form a legal entity and register for taxes

First of all, when starting to plan a business, it is essential to obtain pre-approval of your store names from the California Secretary of State, as well as federal and state brands, as there could be a another tattoo parlor of the same name.

Next, you will want to form a legal entity. The most common types include sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership, and LLC (limited liability company).

You will also need to register for various state and federal taxes before opening your business. But remember that there are different options for how your business will be taxed, depending on the business structure you choose. Remember that you will also need to apply for an EIN (Employer Identification Number) to register for taxes.

Apply for a business license, permits and insurance

After all other legal necessities, you will need to register your business license with your city to pay taxes. To get a permit, go to your local city clerk’s office and get a business tax certificate. With this certificate, your store will be registered with the local government and keep your business legitimate in terms of tax and operational information.

Your business will also need insurance to operate safely and legally. To get coverage for small businesses in California, you must purchase general liability insurance that protects you and your business against general claims such as personal injury and property damage. Almost all small businesses need this type of insurance because it covers expenses such as medical bills and legal fees.

Corporate bank account

To protect your personal assets, you will need to keep your personal and business finances in separate accounts and credit cards. This will make it easier to keep track of the company’s expenses and income. In addition, it will protect your personal assets in the event of legal action against your business and will greatly facilitate accounting and tax reporting.

Getting a business credit card will help you consolidate your business expenses in one place, keeping them separate from your personal expenses. It will also help build your business’s credit history, which will come in handy when raising funds and making subsequent investments. Note that credit cards can be an easier way to finance your business.

Respect safety laws

Keep in mind that each state has its tattoo regulations and licensing requirements, as tattoo shops may be subject to regular inspections to ensure they are adhering to sterilization, sanitation and other health and safety measures. You can start operating your tattoo parlor after obtaining all the necessary permits and being authorized to do so.

You can check with the California Conference of Local Health Officers to make sure you are complying with the most recent laws. Note that if you violate health and safety laws, your license may be revoked and your store closed. You can find the rules of safe and sanitary practice for body art stores in the California Safe Body Art Act.

Promote your brand

Your brand is what your tattoo parlor stands for, and having a strong brand will help you stand out from your competition. Note that as a tattoo artist, you have to devote some of your time to marketing. Word of mouth and social media are some of the ways to promote your business.

Maintain a portfolio that can be viewed regularly online or in person, and also share your work on social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest. Join the tattoo community, attend conventions around the world to showcase your work, and network with other tattoo artists.


If you are a talented artist who lives in California and want to open your tattoo parlor, remember to comply with specific laws so that your business can start and operate. Getting permits and insurance, making sure your store is sterile, and paying an administration fee is just the start of a much better business. Follow the regulations and requirements and you can start the job of your dreams.

Jasmine Mans takes us through the “cycles” of heartache in her new poem Fri, 17 Sep 2021 22:49:58 +0000 “What you see here is a poem about two women who loved each other,” Mans said.

Jasmine Mans has already climbed a hill with a broken heart. The poet and author of Black girl call home was tasked with releasing her grief when she arrived by her best friend (who was running alongside her). When they reached the top it was filled with fireflies. Their beauty was visual confirmation: it was time to let go.

The love she unleashed lives on in the six-minute video of her poem “Cycles”.

“There are times that you have in life that are exemplified by God and you are just a participant,” she said at the premiere at Dumbo House in Brooklyn.

“I wrote this poem a year ago with a broken heart and sleepless body. Art reflects life, even when the heart does not want to be seen. What you see here is a poem about two women who loved each other.

In the video, Mans and a lover dance and fondle each other in a Brooklyn brownstone. A neat color palette expresses the warmth of their moments with a sentimentality reserved for rom-com flashbacks. Their love seems eternal until some fate shatters their happiness. They glow and then shatter.

The protagonist of the poem does not judge his lover, played by DJ Fannie Mae, for betrayal because, as Mans said, “shame was never an activation of God.”

A chorus composed and performed by Bills Egypt asks “Who am I to blame you / Who am I to claim you / Who am I to shame you”, before declaring “I wish you well / I wish you well. well / I wish you well, my love. “

She found it important to share her experience, “So that other gay black girls know they belong and can take up space.”

Working with those she knew helped her become more comfortable on set. “DJ Fannie Mae has been a good friend of mine as well, so having her in this room was a nice exchange of energy,” she said.

The project is his first partnership with Umi’s House. “Umi’s House is a New Jersey production company created by friends of mine Herns Gabrial and Aziza Johnson,” Mans said. The couple reached out to her to create something special together.

“When they asked for a collaboration, it was the only piece I could think of. This poem colored my identity right now, ”she continued.

“I was nervous, it was my first time, in a song, with a woman. Herns, nervous because this is his first production. We were a team of eight friends gathered in Brooklyn to tell a love story.
