Equal parts shambling and sophisticated, Nap Eyes keep one eye on the dirt and one trained on the firmament, inhabiting a skewed world where odes to NASA and the Earth’s magnetic field coexist easily with songs about insomnia and drinking too much. Recording live to tape with no overdubs, Nap Eyes call to mind The Clean, The Verlaines, The Modern Lovers, and all things Lou Reed, without ever sounding very much like anything else happening today.

All Ages Event

This space is physically accessible, the bathrooms are up a short flight of 3 stairs.

We recognize and acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded, unsurrendered Algonquin-Anishinabe territory. We also ask that attendees be kind humans, and leave antiquated attitudes at the door, including but not limited to a zero tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism, and you’re-not-my-vibe-ism. We’re here for a good time, not a WTF time.

In addition Steven Lambke will be performing as part of the Festival on Thursday August 18th at 5 Arlington at 5pm. This very special event is a book launch for Ian Roy’s new collection of stories, Meticulous, Sad and Lonely.
