    Event description

    Clockshop’s quarterly Listening By Moonrise program, in collaboration with Earth Sessions, returns to LA State Historic Park, featuring performances and immersive sound experiences with leading multi-disciplinary sound artists. On the eve of the full moon (or as close to it), this program offers listeners moments of reflection, connection, and joy while experiencing music and sound collectively within the context of a community-centered green space.

    Earth Sessions is a music and environmental education event series that seeks to build community, celebrate the role of art in movements of change, and provide joyful + diverse climate justice education to new audiences. Curated in collaboration with Intersectional Environmentalist and The Eyes and Ears Agency, Clockshop invites Leah Thomas, Mandy Harris Williams, and Tonina for an afternoon of readings and music in honor of Black History Month.

    This event is free and open to the public.
    Clockshop suggests a $5 donation to support our Reading and Listening by Moonrise series at LA State Historic Park.
