OOAAOC: The Secret Extra Volume (53): Your Uncle Richard!
WE TRICKED YOU!
We have one extra special Special Volume of OOAAOC to go before it transforms into a new and fantastic being.
Join OOAAOC and Your Uncle Richard Sunday March 21, 2021 at 8pm ET to get a little sip of magic.
Your Uncle Richard for years has been a practice in bringing people together from a distance, when we cannot be together. This month, we are making a cycle with the people closest to us. Eight neighbors from a set of corner buildings in Sunset Park have made a chain of art from home together. Over the last year, COVID-19 has brought us closer out of fear, now it is a relief to come together to create.
Hosted by Kelly Lamana and Katelyn Douglass
YOUR UNCLE RICHARD is a long-distance arts collaboration that connects an ever-growing family of strangers. Structured like a game of telephone, each cycle begins with one artist who creates a prompt and passes it on to the next participant. The chain continues with each artist seeing only the piece that has come before theirs and making a new piece. In the past four cycles, the project has connected folks from across the world. Performers, poets, cartoonists, chefs- this project is an exercise in hearing and celebrating other perspectives.
OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION is an avant-garde microfestival LIVE + online of quick + dirty-fascinating work responding to and from the places and people with whom we select to shelter, on a wildly inclusive + non hierarchical platform
entry is free
tipping artists is encouraged
flying by the seat of our pants here so

Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Ben attended The University of Michigan to study with master musicians such as Robert Hurst and Geri Allen. Immediately after graduating in 2012, Ben released his debut album Fables, described as “full of grandeur and dissonance” and “find of the week” by Dave Sumner (eMusic Contributor). Moving to Detroit after graduation sparked a period of intense growth and musical activity. A talented and close-knit peer group led to established bands, regular gigs, a flurry of recordings, and the founding of POLYFOLD Musical Arts Collective, a non-profit musicians advocacy group. Since moving to NYC in 2017 Rolston has presented three new bands, each in a different stylistic realm, and helped put on a monthly concert series with POLYFOLD featuring some of the best improvisers NY has to offer.
