CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: The 2022 edition of the Atlanta Science Festival will delve into the environment, earth and space, the animal kingdom, the arts, and health and the human body. There will be nature walks, creature encounters, hands-on experiments, and science-themed performances throughout the city during its two-week run. The ninth annual festival wraps up with a party in Piedmont Park dubbed the Exploration Expo. Executive Director Meisa Salaita says the ASF “has become synonymous with engaging and accessible science exploration for all ages, while celebrating diversity and our city as a science hub.” Science lovers from around the world get to experience the events online. “Today science is more relevant than ever,” Salaita says. “And just as science evolves, our festival continues to grow and expand in ways we never thought possible.” — KCM

From the venue:

With a single EP as an a cappella screamer-crooner to his name, Ed Schrader brought on bassist Devlin Rice to form the two-piece Ed Schrader’s Music Beat after the two met on the legendary 2008 Baltimore Round Robin tour. Rice’s presence instantly brought aesthetic focus to Schrader’s disparate musical tendencies. The primal screams were made driving and heavy and the visionary chants became post-new wave mood pieces. The evolution is unmissable on their first two records as a duo, Jazz Mind (2012) and Party Jail (2014). On the Dan Deacon-produced Riddles (2018), the band exploded their sonic palette with the addition of synthesizers, player piano and a dedicated percussionist bringing to life a tracklist produced and co-written by Dan Deacon. Upon its release, the record garnered widespread acclaim. NPR called it an “odd and captivating piece of work.” Pitchfork called it “a defining point in their career.” Rolling Stone praised it as “a noise-punk album that bursts with psychedelic twists.” SPIN called it “a memorable and eclectic record ... one that can bleed and weep and still make you want to get up and scream.” Since 2010, the duo has mounted TK NUMBER tours across the U.S. and Europe both as a headliner and in support of major acts Beach House, Future Islands and Dan Deacon. They’ve shared bills with No Age, Lightning Bolt, Matmos and Ceremony.
