This is Sigfrids’ third collaboration with the band, following shows organized in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2002 and 2004. Speed to Roam emerged from the underground music scene in Louisville, Kentucky in the late 90’s. Originally formed by Jason Hayden (Crain); Paul Oldham (Royal Trux); Peter Townsend (Palace); and George Wethington (The Man); the band also includes Dave Bird (Out) on guitar. The band has released one 7” (Brokerstip Records) and four full length albums and opened up for bands including Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, The For Carnation, The Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and The Dirty Three, amongst others. This will be their first time performing in fifteen years.
The group show includes work by artists and musicians based in Los Angeles, California; Phoenix, Arizona; Louisville, Kentucky; Ojai, California; Chicago, Illinois; Detroit, Michigan; Athens, Georgia; New York City; Merida, Mexico; and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and Florence, Massachussetts.
