StillHouse Junkies @ Coconino Center for the Arts
May 3 @ 7:30 pm

Flagstaff Arts Council is pleased to present Stillhouse Junkies at Coconino Center for the Arts on Friday, May 3rd, 2019. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show begins at 7:30 pm.

Stillhouse Junkies bring together a mixture of blues, funk, swing, and bluegrass to create a delirious and unique sound. Instruments are shared as they blend their vocals. The Junkies pay tribute to Gillian Welch, the Allman Brothers, John Hiatt, and other iconic legends but continue to break new ground and bend all genres. Born out of a weekly residency at a local distillery, StillHouse Junkies have quickly become a staple of Durango’s rich local music scene They include improvisation in their shows and have created a solid fan base through their eclectic performances.

The band is made up of three stellar musicians. Alissa Wolf studied the violin at age 8. She spent many summers intensively studying at the Music in the Mountains Conservatory, the Sewanee Summer Music Festival, Meadowmount School of Music, and more. Fred Kosak has over 12 years as a professional musician and played in numerous ensembles of varying styles and instrumentations, ranging from funk cover bands to intimate acoustic duets. Cody Tinnin started playing trombone at a young age and developed an ear for jazz. He joined the Outta Hand String Band in 2004 before following his culinary passions to Austin, Texas. After close to a decade deep in the heart of Texas, Cody returned to the Durango area.

Fred, Alissa, and Cody came together around a shared goal of bringing sounds and grooves to their fans that fall outside of simple genre distinctions. Interaction with the audience and quirky on-stage banter create an experience that is simply unforgettable.

The show will take place on Friday, May 3rd, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $12 in advance and $16 on the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts, by calling 928-779-2300, and downtown at Arizona Music Pro (cash or check only).

This performance is part of the 2019 Celebration of the Night. Flagstaff continues to set the standard for effective night sky protection and started making dark skies a priority in 1958.

Human Nature Dance Theater is a collaborative dance performance group that creates original works of art through an interdisciplinary lens. Nature our relationship with the natural world is explored through this performance. In this specially commissioned performance, dancers Jayne Lee and Paul Moore begin with us in deep space: Nothingness. All that has ever been and will ever be, exist at the same moment. Everything is full of potential as the universe is still forming. Then a cataclysm occurs and the very fabric of our world tears apart. Here we are caught in this moment of darkness. Where do we go from here? How do we dance into the dark where our deepest knowing resides?

The show will take place on Friday, May 10th, 2019 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased online, in person at Coconino Center for the Arts, by calling (928)779-2300, and downtown at Arizona Music Pro (cash or check only).
