with Cold Fronts
With ORPHAN, Empires climb to rare heights. Their vivid rock 'n' roll is now fused with an imaginative and open-armed approach. Born of singer Sean Van Vleet's fascination with contemporary popcraft, songs like "Please Don't Tell My Lover" and the night-driving "How Good Does It Feel" see the Chicago-based band adopting time-honored romantic idioms, both musical and lyrical, to mask deeper and darker personal truths.Van Vleet put pen to paper and began to write in a wholly free space, with no expectations or endgame in mind. He explored a musical language that was quite literally out of character, imagining his songs performed not by Empires but by some indeterminate modern pop thrush."It was really freeing," Van Vleet says, "just trying to put myself in somebody else's shoes, another artist's voice. I stopped overthinking what I was trying to say and started saying it much more clearly."Van Vleet also immersed himself in classic post punk and indie rock 'n' roll circa 1989-1991, his mind's eye reeling as he delved into the canons of such sonic adventurers as My Bloody Valentine, Wire, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Songs like "Orphan" and "Shadowfaux" emerged as Van Vleet accessed previously untapped springs of melody, lyric, and meaning. He eventually played his demo recordings to his fellow band members, who surprised him by validating his efforts, demanding Empires tackle this divergent new material themselves."I was just showing them to Max," Van Vleet says. "I had no idea it was something he'd be into. In my mind, it was this extreme pop but the songs really resonated with the band, which for some reason, I didn't expect to happen."While prior Empires recordings had been produced, engineered, and mixed by Steger, the band agreed the time had come to see what an outside influence might bring to the table and in September 2013, traveled to Dallas for three weeks of sessions with producer John Congleton. Known with his work with such dissimilar artists as St. Vincent, The War On Drugs, Cloud Nothings, and The Black Angels, Congleton proved the ideal midwife for Empires' aesthetic rebirth, assisting them as they shed deeply rooted means of expression."John took ideas that we thought were golden and threw them away," Van Vleet says. "He said, 'You need to let the song be what it is and you need to live with it.' And that's what we did. He taught us not to hide our songs, to let it all shine through."Stripping Empires' already expansive sound to its essence exposed far more range and emotional heft to songs like "Lifers" and the cutting "Hostage" the guitars sound richer and atmospheric, the rhythms subtle and fluid yet more powerful at the same time. Throughout the album, Van Vleet's raw croon rises to match the band's musicality, conveying anxieties, secrets, and a heartfelt longing for transcendence.ORPHAN serves a forward-thinking landmark as Empires continue to grow and venture towards unprecedented terrain."Now we're going to go deeper into this new direction, see how we evolve within it. We're just scratching the surface on who we are." May 2014

Teleclass: Communicating with Your Nanny

Join Mommybites and as they walk you through some strategies for good communication between parents and nannies!

Whether it’s your nanny, daycare provider, or the Saturday night babysitter, life can get crazy enough that we forget the importance of good communication with our caregiver.

Open and honest communication between the nanny and parent not only makes for a smoother day, but it is also important for the children’s wellbeing. Honing communication skills makes both the parent’s and nanny’s job easier and paves the way to a true partnership in raising the children.

In this teleclass, we have both a noted nanny and trusted parent consultant, who will provide some strategies for forging a healthy parent-nanny relationship

We will discuss:

  • How to have a difficult discussion about those really sensitive issues?
  • The best approaches for communication between parents and  nannies
  • Tools and Tips to make communication easier throughout the day,
  • An easy to make contract you can use to avoid most issues that arise within a nanny/family relationship


Nannies and parents are welcome to this discussion.

*Dial-in information sent upon completing your registration.

Not sure if you can make the teleclass? Don’t worry! Everyone who registers will receive a link to the taped call, so be sure to sign up.

The Alp (Sez Ner), Book Reading by Arno Camenisch

Young Swiss author Arno Camenisch writes in both Rhaeto-Romanic and German. He will read excerpts from his novel The Alps in his mother-tongues, German and Rhaeto-Romanic, and discuss the content and his writing with the audience. The read passages will be interactively translated into English. The discussion will take place in English.

Following a slew of unnamed characters in a small village along the Alps, we find that their existence is marked by dangerous work, small dramas, solitude, and alcoholism. The author’s handling of these situations and lives is characterized at all times by affection, surreal humor, and a brilliant ear for the sounds of the setting.

The Alp, the first book in Camenisch’s Sez Ner trilogy, was published in April 2014 by Dalkey Archive Press. The upcoming two—Behind the Station and Last Last Orders—will be published by Dalkey Archive in April 2015. 

"With The Alp, a loose sequence of scenes from everyday life on Alp Stavonas at the foot of Piz Sezner, Arno Camenisch has written perhaps the most unusual book of the season. It is certainly one of the freshest." —Angelika Overath, NZZ




6.00 – 6.30 pm:        Arrival of guests and registration


6.30 – 6.45 pm:        Words of welcome by Andreas Rufer, swissnex Boston

Fleur D'Orange's Identity/Identité
Monkeyhouse is thrilled to present Fleur D'Orange's Identity/Identité. In this new piece, Casablanca-based choreographer and dancer Hind Benali explores her personal past and African roots while addressing the culture, history, and gender politics of Morocco. Rich in images and movement, Benali’s new work reflects the complexities of Moroccan life.Identity/Identité is created and performed in collaboration with Franco-Moroccan hip hop dancer,Soufiane Karim. The piece’s soundscape is composed of live and recorded music by multi-instrumentalist Mohcine Imrharn, interwoven with found sounds. Strikingly lyrical calligraphy by artist Yacine Fadhil will be projected on the stage and dancers. Additional video imagery by Benali documents shrines, stories of elderly Moroccans about their youth, and sounds of the traditional markets to conjure and share environments that have formed her life and those of her forbearers.The presentation of Fleur D’Orange is part of Center Stage, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, produced by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with additional support from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and the Asian Cultural Council. General Management for Center Stage is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc.

Single-Color Screen Printing: One Day Introduction OCTOBER 11


Ever wanted to make your own custom t-shirt, tote bag, sticker, poster, or greeting card? In this one day intensive introduction to screen printing, you'll learn all the basics and by the end of the day create a screen using your artwork and print a one-color design on your choice of t-shirts or paper.

Class Goals:

Students will learn all they need to start screen printing at home or in the Asylum's print studio. After an informational overview, students will dive right in to hands-on work so that by the end of the workshop they leave with their own printed products as well as the skills to print on their own.


Students should be prepared with designs/artwork you'd like to print to send in pdf form to the instructor. No previous screen printing experience required. Students must be at least 18 years of age.


Students should bring their own materials to print on for their final project -- t-shirt, tote bag, paper, etc. -- and a $10 materials fee, payable to the instructor, to cover consumables. The instructor will provide materials for test prints and screens and ink, though students have the option of bringing their own.

Instructor Biography:

Erik Heumiller is a video editor, cartoonist and printmaker. His print experience comes from his years working in a T-shirt shop. He's currently hard at work fulfilling orders for his successful Kickstarter project the Magnet Comic, but he still likes to squeeze in some print time whenever he's got a spare moment.

Event Time:

This one-day session will run Saturday, October 11, 11AM-4PM.


REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.

CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.
