local artist em! set a date w/ wonder root to perform a show sep. 5th. Having no band or art ready, she then sent out a call to a hundred or so musicians and artists in atlanta area to create a show in less than a month. What has remained out of the madness and exhaustion from the last couple weeks is a band dubbed "the back pockets" a interesting gaggle of 8 or so artists and musicians of varying levels of experience in both fields; a slightly unhinged but all-for-the-better director of creative masses; and a show that will be strange, spontaneous, and exciting both to perform and watch.
