Spirits raise the roof in EAV

As premature backyard fireworks displays begin to burst and bloom over the city tonight (Tues., July 3), Spirits and the Melchizedek Children will be playing to the tune of a different spectacle altogether. Spread out atop the roof of the Secret Spot - that peculiar little yellow building in the parking lot across the street from 529 in East Atlanta - the group will perform the live film score to director Carl Janes' InBetween.

There will be a full moon on the rise as well, a "Thunder Moon," so it's a three-part celebration: The moon, the film, and of course, freedom.

A bonfire will get going around 8 p.m., but the music and the film won't crank up 'til around 11 p.m. InBetween is an interpretive film that was shot in various desolate locations throughout North and South Carolina. It's a grainy, black and white dreamscape that features no dialogue at all, but there are a whole lot of characters, not the least of which is the music itself. For this project Spirits put together a score that repurposes an occasional melody, or a moment of rhythm from last year's We Are Here To Save YOU!. Other sections of the music offer a glimpse at the record the group is currently finishing, and yet other bits of the score are completely unique to the film and this performance.

Free. 8 p.m. The Secret Spot, 538 Flat Shoals Ave.
