The Vera Project, Seattle’s non-profit, all-ages music and arts venue, and Hollow Earth Radio, Seattle’s premier free-form online radio station, are joining forces yet again for our 4th Annual DIY Holiday Fair! Vera will transform into a marketplace for independent music and crafts, along with live music and interactive silk-screening. All proceeds help support local music and art at Hollow Earth Radio and the Vera Project.

SURREALIST SONGMAKING! "Here's how it worked. We used an old 4-track cassette recorder. A person would come and record a track of guitar, voice, weird percussion, whatever. Then the next person would come and can listen to what the first person put recorded and lay down another track over it... Then another person would sign up BUT they are only allowed to hear the second person's track. And finally the fourth person comes and makes some sound but they can only heard the 3rd track. THEN A SONG IS BORN."

Kelli's Starlight Wishes.
Seattlite Kelli Frances Corrado is a self described folk-tronic musician. The pulse of drum machines bleep along with hand drums, tambourines and at times a drum kit. In between the rhythms strings twist and curl around themselves in ecstacy and agony or both. Intimate vocals and hypnotic swells of guitars, harps and synths becken with a sirens call.
The new album from this Issaquah group has an extraordinary blood red illustrated cover of a devilsh feminine puppetmaster figure unmasking some remarkably maintained teeth. Tis a good match for the insidious swirling earthen noises that splatter and growl at swirling guitar parts that seem to find no safe place to land, aware that they will tire eventually. Come march down the tunnel to whatever beautifully hued rotting thing that awaits for you to feed.
Nightmare Fortress. From Seattle. Dirty Distorted chainsaw synths still a bit soft for the human female and let sing the vocalist of hungry things. Danceble horror for when everyones dead, and you know you wont be sleeping for weeks.
Baby Guns. Are from Seattle. Baby Guns bathe atop the towers of a floating synth kingdom with drums both acoustic and electric pushing the pterodactyls onward, grinding the bit to the drowns that reach from someplace below

For those of you that had expected to come see Math the Band perform tonight at Hollow Earth Radio:
Word from the band is that they've had automobile troubles and will not be able to reach Seattle until tomorrow, Saturday the 24th.
Corner Kick, unfortunately can't make the switch, so experimental pop ensemble, iji, will be playing in their place.
Pitchouse and Everybody weekend will still be playing. What great news!
Please! Still come out! Together a good time will be had!
The Stranger's underage columnist, Jackson Hathorne, wrote a nice thing about the show for this weeks issue of the paper, in case you'd like to read a bit about this event.

This Sunday 18th November, at 4 pm, Hollow Earth Radio in collaboration with Babel/Salvage will be hosting a reading by four local writers:Bryan Edenfield, Graham Isaac, Leigh Bell and Evan Peterson. It's free and open to the public, and will be broadcast live online on a special edition of The Buoy and Bellow show. For more details, see below!
Babel/Salvage is a non-profit engine for artistic and literary ingenuity and community involvement located geographically in Seattle, Washington. Focusing on new and contemporary work and its antecedents, we seek to promote creative outsiders, experimenters, innovators and inter-disciplinary savants from all walks of life.
Bryan Edenfield was born in 1982 in Mesa, Arizona. He currently resides in Seattle, Washington with his dog, Annabelle. There, he acts as the Official Spokesperson for the Wordless Dictionary Society, founder of Babel Books and Publishing and co-founder of Babel/Salvage, an art/boutique/publishing outfit. He is the editor and secret author of "33 Opening Paragraphs," and "Glossolopolis Number One," as well as numerous short stories and essays. He received his BA in philosophy and history from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.
Graham Isaac grew up at various points along Puget Sound, most located in Seattle. He writes, illustrates, performs, and organizes in Seattle, occasionally bopping up to Bellingham (where he once lived) or over to Swansea, Wales (where he went to grad school and co-founded The Crunch) to do things there. His writing has appeared in places such as Licton Springs Review, Hoarse, Roundyhouse, The Raconteur, Your Hands Your Mouth and he was anthologized in "As Much As We Put In: A Poetry Night Anthology." His music criticism has appeared in the Cascadia Weekly, NadaMucho and Buddyhead. At least one of those publications still exists. Graham Isaac helps run the much ballyhooed Greenwood Lit Crawl and Claustrophobia reading series.
Evan J. Peterson is the author of Skin Job (2012 Minor Arcana Press). A poet, fiction author, columnist, critic, editor, teacher, and performer, his writing has been featured in the New York Times, Weird Tales, The Rumpus, Small Doggies, Assaracus, and Aim for the Head: An Anthology of Zombie Poetry. He is the newly appointed creative director and editor of Minor Arcana Press and editor of the forthcoming anthology Ghosts in Gaslight, Monsters in Steam: Gay City Anthology 5.
Terra Leigh Bell was born and raised in the Seattle area, and has found herself unable to depart the Pacific Northwest thus far. She studied creative writing at Western Washington University, but credits most of her poetic education to the vast quantities of classic poetry and scripture she had to memorize at her Assembly of God elementary school and while homeschooling. Her favorite things in the universe are: coffee on rainy days, men, poetry, men, and singing in the choir at church, in that order.
