The Safron Utopia by Kevin C. McCarthy

The Frye is hosting a lecture by KEXP's Greg Vandy called Local Hero: Harry Smith’s Old, Weird Record Collection. "The folk themes and forgotten histories heard on Harry’s anthology inspired a new generation of listeners and artists. Greil Marcus coined the term and Dylan played the songs, but Harry Smith found, collected, and preserved the songs from an old, weird America." The lecture starts at 7pm.
Other great shows opening up include La Familia Gallery's December 5"x5" show, Canoe Social Club's Home, and The Forgotten Works Challenge.
And if you still haven't seen the current shows by Akio Takamori, Margie Livingston or SuttoneBerseCuller, you should check them out - they're great!
