MEAT & GREET Pig Roast! Presented by Jones Valley Teaching Farm and local butcher Will Drake
The fine folks at Jones Valley Teaching Farm and our favorite Birmingham butcher Will Drake will be on-site roasting up two Tennessee heritage breed pigs for an old-fashioned pig roast. After four months abroad as a butcher’s apprentice in Ireland, Drake came back to the South with a revived creative energy and a more-skilled understanding of his craft. Expect top-notch side dishes and local brews to accompany the porcine delights.ALL NIGHT // PHOTO BOOTHALL NIGHT // DJ SEXPANTHER
Sexpanther began DJ-ing over 15 years ago and has always specialized in digging deep into eclectic, progressive music both new and old. A music conservatory graduate, he approaches his sets and mixes as the creation of a new composition. Depending on the context you could be just as likely to find him DJ-ing lounge music at a pool, tropical house in an art gallery, or his signature brand of “psychedelic disco” to a dance-floor. Expect blissed out vibes. Expect to smile. Expect Sexpanther.ALL NIGHT // BROMBERG’S GIVEAWAY
Want a chance to win the stunning pieces on display in the lobby? Of course you do! Just snap a photo (or several!) to share on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, and tag with both #ArtOnTheRocks and #Brombergsfor a chace to win. Winners will be chosen based on creativity—so remember to ham it up!

7:45 & 8:45PM // DANCEE
The modern-contemporary company is celebrated abroad and treasured by Birmingham. Ross’ new dance for Art On The Rocks blends aesthetics: the digital and the sensual, the sustained and the vibratory, the glorious and the busted movement qualities. Come delight in this performance!
8:15 & 9:15PM // PERFORMANCE ART
Details to come! Performance art by Erin Michelle Vaiskauckas and Mike Stasny.
10PM // THE SHADOWBOXERS
The Shadowboxers have a passion for captivating lyrics, tight harmonies, and soulful vocals. Founding members Scott Schwartz, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman experienced an almost-instantaneous musical compatibility when they first started writing together. They’ve forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D’Angelo, and The Beatles. This young band’s unified sound has an R&B-soaked, smart perspective replete with an abundance of vocal talent and songwriting skill. In the short time they’ve been playing together, The Shadowboxers have found a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy.
