CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: The 2022 edition of the Atlanta Science Festival will delve into the environment, earth and space, the animal kingdom, the arts, and health and the human body. There will be nature walks, creature encounters, hands-on experiments, and science-themed performances throughout the city during its two-week run. The ninth annual festival wraps up with a party in Piedmont Park dubbed the Exploration Expo. Executive Director Meisa Salaita says the ASF “has become synonymous with engaging and accessible science exploration for all ages, while celebrating diversity and our city as a science hub.” Science lovers from around the world get to experience the events online. “Today science is more relevant than ever,” Salaita says. “And just as science evolves, our festival continues to grow and expand in ways we never thought possible.” — KCM
From the venue:Korine is a Philadelphia based electronic pop duo comprised of members Morgy Ramone and Trey Frye. The pair blends new wave nostalgia with a modern pop sensibility, contrasting upbeat rhythms against sullen, emotionally evocative lyrics. Following a self-released EP “Corsage” in 2017, Korine debuted their first full-length record “New Arrangements” in 2018 on Philadelphia label Born Losers Records which helped land the band multiple nationwide tours and two sold out vinyl pressings. Following this release were two acclaimed singles “Uncrossed” and “To You” which were specially released on a limited 7” vinyl in the Fall of 2019, and marked a stylistic evolution for the band - a departure from the familiar 80s era influence to incorporate a more contemporary pop awareness. Korine’s forthcoming September 2020 release “The Night We Raise” shows the band growing even further into their own, both the songwriting and musicality more assured than ever, and will be released jointly by Born Losers Records (US) and Data Airlines (FR).
