DIANE CLUCK is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her vocal style has been noted for its distinctly clipped, glottal beauty, and described as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell…unaffected yet unusual.” (NPR)

Diane released her most recent album, Boneset, through Important Records–a Mobius strip seeded with birds, death, boldness and heart. The album and its singles received the distinction of premiering through NPR’s First Listen, All Songs Considered and Tiny Desk Concert series. She’s toured the album throughout the US, UK, and Europe.

Diane contributed to New York’s burgeoning Antifolk scene in the early 2000s alongside artists such as Jeffrey Lewis, Adam Green, and Kimya Dawson. She’s traded harmonies and toured with CocoRosie (who released her Countless Times album) and shared stages with a wonderful diversity of artists including The National, Regina Spektor, Yoko Ono, Genesis P-Orridge, John Zorn, My Brightest Diamond, Devendra Banhart, Josephine Foster, Cass McCombs, Little Wings, Rain Machine (Kyp Malone of TV On The Radio), Rajasthan Roots, Daniel Johnston and Herman Dune. Singer-songwriters Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have all cited Diane’s work as influential.

John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978) – One Night Only Screening @ AS220 Main Stage
Oct 24 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm

John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween returns to theaters worldwide this October! See the film that defined a genre and launched an iconic franchise the way is was meant to be seen, on the big screen. Plus, catch an exclusive interview and retrospective with the legendary master of horror, John Carpenter. Introducing the film, this special bonus explores the history of the film and the indelible influence Halloween has had on not only the horror genre, but the entire film industry. Carpenter explains why the film is meant for the big screen, the influences that inspire his filmmaking and how Halloween became the highest grossing independent film of all time.

There’s no better way to experience the movie that brought Michael Myers into nightmares everywhere and launched the career of the original “scream queen” Jamie Lee Curtis, than in cinemas, digitally restored and remastered by the original cinematographer.

LIVE BAIT! Special Extended Halloween Show: Ghost @ AS220 Main Stage
Nov 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Special Extended Halloween Show: Ghost

Live Bait has never gotten enough Halloween, so we have taken it upon ourselves to extend the holiday to November 3rd. Does this mean more scares, more thrills, and more chills? Perhaps, depending on the stories… Does this mean more candy..? Absolutely!

You provide the Ghost stories and we’ll provide the candy. All the ones you love and hate at the same time (Candy Corn! Circus Peanuts! Apocryphal Candy Apples with Hidden Dangers!)

Remember, Live Bait is a forum for true stories. That includes Ghost stories. We know you have them, so come to Live Bait, put your name in the fishbowl and, when called, come up and freak us out (or not, since you can interpret the theme any way you want, so long as it’s true).

Other points to keep in mind, please: no notes, no rants, no aimless ramblings, no stand-up routines, and there is a six-minute time limit. Of course, all are more than welcome to simply sit back and listen. Live Bait is hosted by Phil Goldman, with banter, musical accompaniment and monthly theme song by Jerry “The Professor” Gregoire.
