Orange Twin Record Company and Conservation Community in conjunction with the AUX Festival present a spectacular fall concert on October 9, 2009, featuring comedian Neil Hamburger, as well as Vic Chesnutt, Elf Power, Nana Grizol, Scott E. Spillane EXP.
Located 5 miles outside of Athens, GA, Orange Twin's unique natural amphitheater has seen acts such as Bonnie Prince Billy, Olivia Tremor Control, and Tall Dwarfs. This year's show presents comic genius Neil Hamburger, perhaps the funniest man in America today as seen in the hit film "Tenacious D's Pick of Destiny," on “The Jimmy Kimmel Show,” and numerous concert performances.
Musical acts include legendary songwriter Vic Chesnutt, a folk rock master who has collaborated with artists as diverse as of REM's Michael Stipe, Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, Widespread Panic, Emmylou Harris, Jonathan Richman, Lambchop and many more. With fellow Athenians Elf Power, Chesnutt will perform songs off of last year's collaborative album, "Dark Developments." Elf Power will also play a set of their distinctive psychedelic rock that has been wowing fans the world round since the mid-1990s. Nana Grizol will rock you with their energetic and furious live show, previewing songs off their brand new album, "Ruth." And Gerbils frontman and Neutral Milk Hotel alum Scott E. Spillane will be performing songs from his new band Scott E. Spillane EXP.
Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at Wuxtry and Schoolkids records, as well as Orange Twin’s own website www.orangetwin.com. Camping is available upon request (email firstname.lastname@example.org), so guests can stay the weekend and catch classic German 1970s rockers Faust the following night at the 40 Watt Club.
This and the related festival and shows are almost a bit to much to contemplate. Almost. It is pretty big deal, for sure, for fans of seriously artistic and independent rock. See the links above (and below) for more information and explanation.
As far as the comedy artist Neil Hamburger goes, with a photo like this
you can't go wrong. Seriously.
