THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CONGREGATION AT MONTCLAIR
67 Church Street
Montclair, NJ 07042
Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist's eye and a poet's heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriter's Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves' seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. "Slaid's a craftsman," says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on "Texas Love Song." "He goes about his songs like a woodworker."
Throughout the month of September, the Montclair Public Library will be hosting an exhibit of photographs by Montclair resident Todd Boressoff. The show will feature photo collage posters of concerts at the Outpost. Each poster is a mini-documentary of performances by such well known musicians as Joan Osborne, Chris Hillman (The Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers), Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), David Johansen (New York Dolls, Buster Poindexter), Graham Parker and others. The exhibit will also feature individual photos of the artists and their instruments, as well as Outpost memorabilia. Exhibit runs from SEPTEMBER 3rd thru 30th at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue.
The building blocks for our community come with a cost! Last year at this time we wrote that these are challenging times - not just for our patrons, but for non-profit organizations as well. Please consider the Outpost for some of your generosity. Every tax- deductible gift received allows us to further enhance our concerts, community service and recreational/social activities. You have our heartfelt thanks!
