Free The story of America’s railroad is complicated and dynamic because it isn’t a single story: it’s many stories. These narratives—including those from our own communities—are personal and significant in ways that aren’t always reflected in how we talk about this shared history.
In conjunction with the UMFA's exhibition Race to Promontory: The Transcontinental Railroad and the American West and the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike, join us for an evening of community conversation, reflection, collaboration, and art making that explores the railroad’s impact on our families, towns, and lives.
Presenters: Katherine Kitterman, Historical Director, Better Days 2020 Darren Parry, Chairman, Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation Judge Michael Kwan, President, Chinese Railroad Workers Descendants Association Fred E. Woods, Professor, Church History & Doctrine, Brigham Young University
Luminaria Presenters and activity leaders: Luminaria co-founders Christine Baczek and David Hyams will discuss the photographic technologies and challenges of the Race to Promontory era, provide sample prints and plates for handling, and share photographic equipment used to create those images.
For Los Angeles’ The Black Queen, the depths of isolation and loss have always functioned as a gateway to being born anew. Much has transpired since the band released their cold, cutting debut album Fever Daydream (a record that Revolver described as “a haunting exploration of the darker side of pop music”). But throughout it all, the trio of Greg Puciato (former frontman of the now-defunct The Dillinger Escape Plan), Joshua Eustis (of Telefon Tel Aviv, Puscifer, and Nine Inch Nails), and Steven Alexander Ryan (technician for Nine Inch Nails, Kesha, and A Perfect Circle) have emerged as triumphant and intense as ever, documenting their journey via the synth-streaked industrial anthems of their sophomore release, Infinite Games.
Of all the breakups in Mike Krol’s songs, the most harrowing story is about his breakup with music.
In 2015, coming off of his best record yet and the ensuing world tour, Krol found himself in the midst of a full-blown existential crisis. He’d invested everything to create the rock-and-roll life he’d always wanted, but he wasn’t sure the life wanted him back.
Power Chords , Krol’s new Merge release, picks up where 2015’s Turkey left off. It traces Krol’s journey back to punk rock, harnessing both the guitar technique and the musical redemption referenced in its title. To rediscover the power in those chords, Krol recorded for two-plus years in three separate locations (Nashville, Los Angeles, and Krol’s native Wisconsin). The record opens in a howling maelstrom of feedback: welcome to Krol’s crucible. After a stage-setting spoken-word intro (“I used to never understand the blues, until the night I met you. And every day since, I’ve gotten better at guitar”), we find ourselves back in familiar Krol territory—aggressive and assertive, scratchy and raw, catchy as hell—but something has changed. The sounds have a new density—and so do the stories. Krol’s lyrics have always walked a fine line between self-acceptance and self-destruction, but throughout Power Chords , they reveal a new sense of self-awareness. “Without a little drama I grow bored and sick of all my days,” he sings on “Little Drama,” and it’s just one revelatory moment on a record full of them.
