The event creator says
Hello, everyone!

On Friday, May 19, The Mammal Gallery will be hosting three interesting and genre-defying musical artists.

Sister Sai is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist and producer Saira (pronounced sī’ rǝ) Raza. Her work displays a wide range of musical influences including jazz, folk, electronic, and classical. In her recordings, Saira employs any and all instruments within reach including vibraphone, guitar, bass, dilruba, found sounds, synths, but she primarily performs with her first love, the cello. Her album Inertia was included in Creative Loafing Atlanta’s 40 Best Albums of 2016. She recently released a new project Extempore, which reflects the experimental loop-based style of her live solo sets.

Ben Ricketts is an experimental musician and singer-songwriter from Oxford, Mississippi. Known for the prolific nature of his recordings, Ricketts has released ten albums and a variety of singles, collaborations, and side projects over the last eight years. He has played shows all throughout the southeastern and middle-eastern regions of the United States, as well as a handful of shows in the Midwest. While his recordings span from sunshine-laden pop to wildly experimental electronic compositions, his live shows offer performance art, conventional songs, and layers of audio experimentation for audiences of all ages. Ricketts has toured with Drew Danburry, had an extended working relationship with The Holy Ghost Electric Show, and performed alongside several other notable musicians (including The Olivia Tremor Control’s John Kiran Fernandes, Marshmallow Coast’s Andy Gonzales, Nashville singer-songwriter Rorey Carroll, and more).

Cuntry is folk with a tinge of grunge. This Atlanta trio hopes to make you stomp your feet in a mosh pit but also cry.
