MEOW WOLF: Origin Story

Post film discussion organized by Utah Arts Alliance on developing immersive art installations in Salt Lake.

 

DWhen a group of young DIY artists in Santa Fe can’t find a door into the art world, they blow open an entirely new portal with their grit, passion, and tenacity. Within just a few short years – and with a little help from George R.R. Martin – this group called Meow Wolf ultimately hits a cultural nerve and garners massive, unexpected success with their exhibit, House of Eternal Return.

Hot Flash Heat Wave with Vacations, Field Trip

San Francisco indie-rock quartet Hot Flash Heat Wave rose to prominence in the Bay Area music scene in 2015 with the release of their 'Gutter Girl' music video, from their debut album Neapolitan, which was uploaded to YouTube and eventually made its way to the front page of reddit. Their versatile sound, at times reminiscent of golden 60s, power pop, dream pop, post-punk and indie rock, demonstrates a dynamic range of songwriting prowess centered around consistently infectious, sun-soaked melodies and guitar hooks. HFHW formed in Davis, California as a noise collaboration between Adam Abildgaard and Nick Duffy in 2010, expanding to a full band when bassist Ted Davis and guitarist Nathaniel Blum joined the group in the following years. Renouncing the traditional front-manned format of most contemporary bands, the four instead each contribute songs and share the lead. With the release of their sophomore album, Soaked, accompanied by a string of creative self-produced music videos in 2017, the group embarked on its first nationwide tour. Their first single, 'Bye Bye Baby', appeared on Canada's Viral 50 Spotify playlist. In 2017, HFHW released their sophomore album Soaked with OIM Records, which charted on college radio in the U.S. The band just finished up a national tour and SXSW visit with No Vacation to promote their new single 'Glo Ride' - a song released in collaboration with Broken Ent. Hot Flash Heat Wave will continue to release music and new videos throughout 2018.
