Doc Robinson and more at Comfest

New indie-pop duo Doc Robinson’s journey began with Golden Daze, an EP of “Backyard barbecue breakup music” released in November 2016. Now, after a packed period of playing shows — including Nelsonville Music Festival — and recruiting community members for eccentric videos, Jon Elliott and Nick D’Andrea will release a full-length album, Deep End, on July 22. 

Saturday

MINT’s ‘Will Play for Space” at Skylab Gallery

Members of MINT Collective installed the first iteration of their “Will Play for Space” project in New York as part of the Spring/Break Art Show. It was the first formal work by the collective since it moved out of its former space at 42 W. Jenkins St. on Columbus’ South Side. MINT will follow up with the next in this ongoing project Saturday at Skylab Gallery Downtown. “Will Play for Space” will change based on where it’s presented, not only given the different physical configurations of host spaces, but also as a commentary and conversation on the notion of space as it relates to DIY arts programming.

Cherry Chrome and more on the last day of ComFest

In an interview earlier this year, Cherry Chrome singer/guitarist Xenia Bleveans-Holm noted her general distaste for bars. “The mystique of bars has been so ruined for me. ... They’re kind of dirty,” the then-17-year-old said. It’s also tough for the indie-rock act’s friends and fans, many of whom are under 21, to attend bar shows. So ComFest’s all-ages atmosphere should be a welcome reprieve for the quartet.
