We welcome vocalist and performance artist, serpentwithfeet (aka Josiah Wise) on a tour supporting his debut full-length album, soil, co-released by Tri Angle Records and Secretly Canadian. With a unique aesthetic that blends elements of gospel music of his youth and more minimal and ambient composition, Wise had this to say about the lyrical nature of the new record: “I remember growing up there was language for how men and women interact…I hate to say it, but I think there is still a lot of shame around two black men dating and loving on each other and I was very aware of that. While working on soil, i was exploring and trying to make sense of my needs and my love language… I’m excited about the way things naturally come out of my body. I am always going to embrace discipline and streamlining. But I’m in a space at the moment where I don’t need or desire the corset. It’s time for expansiveness.”
Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
