For the closing reception of photography series, Creative Combustion, we welcome back the genre-obliterating project, Genrebeast for its second to last performance on the Gamut stage. Featuring the heady, heavy, angular rock of Qaanaaq, Genrebeast 4 marks the CD release party for “Separate / Weak.” Qaanaaq (kuh-nAHk) is the charismatic union of former Hot Ashes musicians Steve Jaksa – Bass, Ray Minge – Violin, and Gus Watkins – Guitar, Vocals, with the addition of Deephaven and Hello Blue’s Ben Prohaska – Drums. Their first single “Skeleton” took a stark look at addiction, and the forces that compel people to abuse their bodies in an attempt to fix their minds. Their live performance is sure to invoke a dynamic energy that mirrors the collaborative combustion of Gamut’s current exhibit. http://qaanaaq.band/
The event will include performances by funk, love, soul band Jaedyn James & The Hunger and rock singer/songwriter Courtney Yasmineh, plus live soundscapes between acts by Peter Bregman, Adam Biel, Ficshe, Chrysanthemum, Charlie Milkey, Adriatic, Jada Brown.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
For the photojournalistic group exhibition, #CreativeCombustion, Natarius selected 18 creative makers representing a wide array of media and followed them to their place of inspiration, be it a physical atmosphere or an emotive memory. Documenting the experience through 35mm film and in-depth interviews, Natarius and his team of photographers and journalists hand-printed and compiled a photo essay exploring the source of creativity. Featuring photographers, musicians, aerial performers, master brewers, tattoo artists, curators, dancers, installation artists, and mixed media artists, the final project is a compelling visual photography series depicting talent and energy which offers an accompanying art book with pages of expose on the psychology of the art and the story behind their impulse to create.
