Dual Record Release at Elastic Arts on Leap Year

We are releasing records at Elastic Arts on leap year and you are all invited!

Tickets are $10.00 and doors are at 8:30 PM.

Wooden Rings teams up with Blow Wind Blow, for a dual record release show this leap year, February 29th 2020, at Elastic Arts.

Doors open at 8:30 PM with sound healer, Jay Taylor creating a sonic landscape throughout the audience, which dovetails into the first song of Blow Wind Blow’s set at 9:00 PM. The show continues with projection, and light play by light artist Rachel Winslow and filmmaker Brian Wilson. Heliocentric, the first full-length vinyl record, will be self-released by Wooden Rings, was made possible with generous support from the 3Arts Foundation, support from our gorgeous listeners, and was pressed locally at Smashed Plastic.

Blow wind blow releases, The Wake, engineered by Jeff Breakey at Good Wolf and mastered by James Auwarter at Coda|Room Audio Chicago/London, who incidentally record Heliocentric.


Streaming is one of those songs that throws around a lot of rage about technology that has become so mainstream, it’s increasingly viewed as a basic human right rather than just another accessory for purchase. The song responds with “alarm” to decreasing day-to-day connection substituted by social media, distance gaming, and endless, meaningly, cucumber challenge videos.

Streaming reinforces that Wooden Rings is humanist and recognizes making music together as a human activity, worthy of their time, and somehow better for everyone than just giving up in front of the screen night after night. The song is featured on the new full length record that Wooden Rings is preparing to release named, Heliocentric.
