We are pleased to announce the final Marfa Myths festival line up for 2016, including the addition of Connan Mockasin’s Wet Dream (a one-off collaboration between Connan and some special friends); Fred & Toody of the legendary Portland band Dead Moon; Hailu Mergia, the Ethiopian musician rediscovered and championed by Awesome Tapes From Africa; Bay Area bashers Heron Oblivion; and recent Mexican Summer signees Pill.
Not to mention that we’ve added David Fenster’s psychedelic mushroom movies, soundtracked by local Marfa musicians, to Sunday’s film lineup. Not. To. Be. Missed.
Don’t forget, residents of Brewster, Jeff Davis and Presidio counties get a Marfa Myths discount until March 1, 2016. Come by the Ballroom Marfa gallery to purchase.
