Redux Revival Music Series: Billie Fountain EP ReleaseJune 4, 2015 / doors 8 pm, show 9 pm
After two years embedding himself in East London’s acclaimed electronic music scene, Corey Webb returned to his hometown of Charleston with a vision. Already a local music veteran (Bodies Full of Magic), Corey traded his guitar for a synth and transformed himself into the dark force that is Billie Fountain. After adding the enigmatic multi-instrumentalists DF Lull and Solomon Glowe, a sound took shape dissimilar to any electronic act in the southeast.
Driven by a feverish energy, Billie’s haunting falsetto pours over beats that bounce from dance to tribal. Lovers of the intriguing, wild, and extravagant will find a kindred spirit in Billie’s electric soul.
We all have a dark side - the part of ourselves we hide from our mothers and the world at large. We feel it in bursts of wild, unrestrained impulse and then quickly suppress it, lest we dance half-naked down King.
On Thursday June 4, Billie Fountain is releasing his debut EP Devil in my Head, and he wants you to release your inner demon and let it show you a good time. Starting at 8 PM, the REDUX art gallery will be transformed into a Blacklight Masquerade, an affair unlike anything you’ve seen (yes it’s over the top, and that’s the point).
Don’t worry about bringing a mask, we have you covered. Local artists will be painting to create one-of-a-kind masks and you’ll get one with your admission. Get in early to paint your own and check out the themed art from some of Charleston’s creative minds. We’ll also have a voter registration table in partnership with our good friends at BACE League.
McKenzie Eddy & The Fire (electric trance-like old soul R&B collaboration with McKenzie Eddy, Elliot Smith, & Quentin Ravanel) takes stage at 9pm, followed by Billie Fountain and his EP release performance.
This is your chance to come as you are and leave as you aren’t. Release the Devil in your Head. See you June 4th.A Redux Revival partnership Purchase Tickets $7 adv/$8 door
