Join us outdoors at Leo Villareal’s Buckyball for a one-of-a-kind performance with Sky Creature, presented by Trillium Salon Series. Self-described as “a euphoric collision of post-punk, trance, and deconstructed opera,” the duo of Majel Connery (vocals, synths) and Matt Walsh (guitar) first bonded in a Brooklyn recording studio over My Bloody Valentine records. The resulting sound is a magical alchemy of opposites—weightless vocals set against a raging sea of manic guitars and driving beats
Free, no tickets required.
Trillium Salon Series redefines the live music experience to invite connection and build community. Founded in 2016 by Katy Henriksen and Glenn France, Trillium Salon Series began with the idea of producing house concerts for classical music and expanded to include experimental and avant garde sounds. The first took place in Katy’s living room with string players from Artosphere Festival Orchestra playing Mozart alongside Lady Gaga to equal verve. Past salons include a celebration of Florence Price chamber music at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, a night of 21st century classical music at 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville, a live improv scoring to F.W. Murnau’s silent film classic Nosferatu with Thought Form Collective, a community led installation of 1,000 origami cranes at Likewise Community in downtown Fayetteville, and a New Year’s Day Potluck celebration at Mount Sequoyah Center.
