The Beer

Goose Island Beer Company

312 Urban Wheat Ale

Like the digits suggest, it’s a beer that’s densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That’s how you know it’s unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. It’s not like any other Goose Island Beer, but no less than you’d expect.

The Bands

10:00 Helado Negro

The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called "peñas" provided a foundation for Helado Negro’s interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Most recently he created a new collaborative group with Julianna Barwick called OMBRE releasing their debut album in 2012 called Believe You Me.  Helado Negro has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing their Pitchfork’s Best New Music album Beast Rest Forth Mouth.  He also produced Prefuse 73‘s 2010 album Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian.

7:00 DJ Chris Winner
8:00 Los Perdidos
Los Perdidos are an instrumental rock combo active in Columbia South Carolina since 1995. The guttural big notes of Morricone,the foppish jazz of Mancini, and the atavistic fury of Link Wray and the Wraymen share space in our sound. We are pleased to bring our brand of plangent twang to the Columbia Museum of Art.
9:00 Those Lavender Whales

Aaron Graves grew up playing drums in Columbia, SC. When he moved to Nashville, TN in 2003 for college, Graves started writing and recording quirky folk-pop songs under the moniker "Those Lavender Whales." Using borrowed instruments and noises from objects found around his room, these songs were usually sent to friends and family or performed in close quarters.
