Eric Butler is a good writer. That is obvious from his thoroughly believable, unquestionably authentic dialogue he's crafted for The Nightmarium Incident, the original suspense thriller he's written for ACT 1's 2019-20 season and concluding its two-weekend run at Nashville's Darkhorse Theater tonight. But sometimes that can mean too much of a good thing a?' when a writer tends to overwrite, as is the case with this sort-of-spooky comedy-drama that seems uncertain of what it wants to be.

After just releasing their brand new track “GO GO', Matt and Kim surprise fans with another new single “MONEY” (FADER Label). Written from the heart, “MONEY” lays out the band's belief that happiness can often be found in the things that money can't buy. To that end, the dog-loving duo took most of their video budget, donated it to the Animal Hope and Wellness animal shelter in L.A. and spent the day at the facility playing with the rescue dogs currently available for adoption. This is not Matt and Kim's first time shining a light on animals in need. Along their past tours, the band invited local rescue agencies to set up information tables in the venue lobby and donated raffle money from Matt and Kim merch to those local shelters. They were also advocates of PETA2's “Adopt Don't Shop” campaign.

Los Angeles-based indie folk songwriter Jamie Drake shared the official video for 'Redwood Tree' with The Talkhouse. The song is featured on Jamie Drake's stunning debut album, Everything's Fine out now via AntiFragile Music. About the video Jamie Drake told The Talkhouse, “'Redwood Tree' is a joyous song, celebrating the creation of music itself, so it made sense to have fun with the video. It was a team effort all around — coming together over time, with all the right elements, people and ideas — similar to Kristen Meyer's collage art for the album and single covers.' Video director Marke Johnson of The Made Shop adds, 'The process was technically quite simple. We started with a time lapse video of Kristen actually creating what would eventually become the single artwork. We sped this up many times to show the unfolding of the twigs and flowers. Then Jamie just shot herself using an iPhone, a couple lights, and green face paint that only revealed her eyes and mouth as she sang each layered vocal part in turn. From there it was a fairly direct process of extracting the lips and eyes, and compositing them onto the emerging time lapse twig structure.'
