Caught a Ghost produces a sound and aesthetic that separates them from the rest of their neo-soul contemporaries. Of course there are threads of classic influence that are apparent, but, for example, the hypnotic synth line on “Time Go” as well as the use of dubstep wobble bass with a full Motown horn section on “Sleeping at Night,” quickly sets the band apart from others that have tried to directly revive the Motown sound.

The Temple of Art exhibit and book premieres at La Luz De Jesus Gallery on December 5, 2014 with an artist reception from 8-11pm. Temple of Art is an ongoing art and photography project over two years in the making.

The Temple of Art provides an insightful look into the lives of some of our favorite working artists by following the progress of the collaborations from conception to completion, documenting the process in the film and book and finally revealing the works in person at La Luz de Jesus Gallery.

Opening December 5th through December 21st in a limited engagement at The Hudson Mainstage, 539 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. 90038.
Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States – It’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite. In this Los Angeles production, director Martin Papazian leads his ensemble and audiences alike through the story of nine couples falling in and out of love in this beautifully poetic and magical love story.
