About the Event

On Thursday nights, the Cloud Tree Gallery transforms into a meditative listening environment with rugs, pillows and bean bag chairs, as well as traditional seating.  A cathedral wall of Mondrianesque glass and steel serves as the backdrop to the musical performances.  A restorative, healing audience experience where a high level of artistry and sound bath aesthetics intersect. 

Highway Lights is composer Justin Sherburn (Montopolis, Radar Rips) and cellist Sara Nelson (David Byrne, Austin Symphony).  Their performances have been called "stunning and transcendent" by the Austin Chronicle.  Listen to the recent KUT interview with Highway Lights on Arts Eclectic HERE

Singer, songwriter, and crazy-talented guitarist Jon Sanchez has one of the most insane resumes on the planet for a gigging musician. Born and raised in the chemical waste trap of Baton Rouge, LA. Sanchez eventually migrated to NYC, Atlanta, LA, and then Austin in the '90s. Sanchez began his trek into the music world, banging through the hardcore, punk rock wilderness of the 1980s - back when the internet was a Xerox rag and being cool came hard and slow to the low dudes on the totem pole. Sanchez plowed black chowder in the thrashcore blitzkrieg of Chaos Horde - one of many under-appreciated Louisiana bands way ahead of their time. After a stint as guitarist in hardcore legends Agnostic Front during the mid-80s, Sanchez ping-ponged around various bands from Atlanta to Austin where he fronted The Flying Saucers and Summer Wardrobe. Sanchez played guitar with 60s psych legend Roky Erickson (13th Floor Elevators) and buzzed electo-bleeps with David Lynch diva Chrystabell. He currently plays with Bob Schneider.
