Concert and Performance Dates

TradeMark at Trinity Church[[ Update 2012.10.26: Rain shmain, we're doing it anyway! Actually chance of rain drops to 10% by 5pm, so come! ]]

TradeMark G.'s composition for church bells is currently ringing throughout downtown Columbus from the bells of Trinity Episcopal Church across from the Ohio statehouse, part of the great Finding Time: Columbus Public Art 2012 project. TradeMark's piece plays through the end of October, with a closing reception on October 27 which I'm giddy with excitement over -- 'cuz we're gonna have a Church Bell Flash Mob.

At exactly 5pm this Saturday 2012.10.27 we will be on the street in front of the church (corner of Broad & 3rd), a motley collection of musicians, stilt-walkers, oddball artists, and a cast of short-attention span witnesses to this ten minute duet of church bells and electronic beats.  That's right -- beatmatched bells, tempo locked and in sync.

Ever heard that before?
No you haven't.

And likely won't ever again.  Don't miss this unique event, and don't be late -- the bells go off automatically at 5:02pm so we must be on time.  Don't bother showing up at 5:10pm; we'll be done and on our way to the Grass Skirt tiki bar for drinks & snacks to celebrate.

WHAT:  Church Bell Flash Mob
WHEN:  This Saturday 2012.10.27 / 5PM EXACTLY!
WHERE: Trinity Episcopal Church / corner of Broad & 3rd Streets / Columbus, OH
HOW MUCH: Free!  And show up in costume!
