The Magnetic Fields’ “Strange Powers” in Macon + Space Ghost & Guests
Indie rock legends The Magnetic Fields and their frontman Stephin Merritt were the feature of a documentary by Kerthy Fix and Gail O’Hara called “Strange Powers” that was released earlier last year. The film focuses on the complexities and subtleties that made Stephin and his band a staple in America’s Indie movement. Their album “69 Love Songs” has been recognized by critics all over the world as one of the most profound and endearing records of our generation. The film is scheduled to make its FIRST screening in the Southeast in Macon at the famous Cox Capitol Theatre on Tuesday, June 14th as part of the theatre’s “2nd Tuesday Rock&Roll Film” series.

Following the show, TheBlueIndian.com and Macon Noise will be presenting a show at The 567 Center, which is only a block away. The show features Macon via Athens group Space Ghost, alongside Jamestown, New York singer-multi instrumentalist Christopher Bell, McAllen, Texas ambient outfit Sick/Sea and Macon’s own Vitamin Eh. Four bands for $5.00 is hard to beat, so come out after the move and support local and touring bands.
