Mission Trips inaugurates 'Live Mixtape' series at the Mammal Gallery

(Currency live at the Mammal Gallery, 12/10/2013)

Fans of pointed improvisation and esoteric jam sessions mark your calendars. Currently boasting a solid lineup of Ramble Tamble (ex-Guardian Alien, Them Natives), Magicicada, Adam Babar (Faun and a Pan Flute, Easily Suede, Suffer Dragon), Daniel Bailey (Currency, Carey, Faun and a Pan Flute), and Michika Skyy McClinton (Tantrum) with more to be announced, experimental Atlanta label Mission Trips is sponsoring brief sets from improv artists with the hopes of creating a continuous and varied string of sounds, similar to a mixtape. The night serves as the first in an ongoing series, similar to Robby Kee's monthly Invent Room Pop. But the lines between sets will blur, with each act serving as a segue both from the preceding bloc and into the following number.

Curator of the series, Chris White, otherwise known as Magicicada, explains: "We are going to work out transitional points between each band, group, person. So like my friend Turner who plays the shahi baaja will start off the night with a 5-minute opener which will slowly transitions into Magicicada for five minutes, into Suffer Dragon, into Currency, and back around with time adjustments and different pairings on any given go around."

[Update: This show has been postponed due to scheduling conflicts and will be rescheduled to a later date.] Mission Trips presents Live Mixtape: 1, featuring Ramble Tamble, Magicicada, Adam Babar, Daniel Bailey, Michika Skyy McClinton, and more. the Mammal Gallery on Sat., Jan. 18. 9:30 p.m. $5. 91 Broad St. 770-605-0990.
