Pairing: Simon x Reader

Warnings: Angst, loss of a loved one, degenerative illness, mentions of a depressive state. NSFW due to the warnings but there is no smut.

Death was everywhere.

From the stench of it clinging to every worn fibre, to the sight of it shuffling in ravenous hordes outside of the compound. He couldn’t remember when it happened, but he’d become numb to it. In the New World Order, people were a currency of trade. Building blocks to create a strong workforce and an even stronger army. They were assets. The grief that he should have felt when they lost another Savior had vanished along the way and he never considered it would be possible to feel it again.

But then she happened.

Kara Walker, ‘Untitled’, cut paper and collage on paper (2009) 

“Kara Walker had her first major success as an artist with her intricate and compulsive black-and-white paper silhouettes of imagined scenes from slave history in the American south. In 1994, her room-size mural, ‘Gone: An Historical Romance of a Civil War as It Occurred b’tween the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart’, won her international acclaim, and made her at 27 one of the youngest ever recipients of a MacArthur ‘genius’ grant”

Weirdest show I’ve ever been to. Macaulay Culkin’s pizza cover band came to ATL with La Femme (who is probably my new favorite band). It was a variety show, to say the least, and a pizza art show (pictures shown above). The weirdest part was when, in the middle of the Pizza Undergrounds set, the band played a slide show of cats named after misheard lyrics in Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” and brought out people in cat suits to dance around to it.

So weird….and so amazing. If The Pizza Underground is coming to your town, please check them out. And come early enough to catch La Femme. I met the guitarist and bassist after the show and they were so sweet! They barely spoke English but I know French so we were able chat for a while. Awesome guys and awesome music!

On Thursday, April 3, 2014, fans drove from as far as Alabama to take part in a unique experience with one of their favorite bands. 

Teamed up with gingergroupdesigns, Manchester Orchestra reimagined their Tumblr throughout the L1 Gallery in Atlanta, as they told the story behind their new album, COPE.

The front walls were dressed with lyrics from the album and the drawings of keyboardist, Chris Freeman. Further inside was a more dynamic curation.

Attendees entered their feelings into tablets stationed around the room. Their moods triggered visuals from the Tumblr community and what they wrote was projected alongside. The art filled the walls and ceiling around the stage area, encompassing the crowd of 200 as they watched the band perform a stripped-down set.

Two songs into the set, lead singer Andy Hull asked the audience to sit on the floor so they could all see the band and the art that they generated together. For a band that is used to playing big stages with bigger sounds, this was a special night that they and those in attendance will always remember. 

To top it all off, each fan got to go home with a piece of the wall.

Big thanks to manchesterorchestraband for their imagination and music, lightningfreeman for his illustrations, gingergroupdesigns for creating the installation, to The Uprising Creative for their technological prowess, Loma Vista Recordings, Vector Management, the kind folks at the L1 Gallery for their hospitality, and of course, the amazing fans who came with an array of emotions, but left in all smiles.

The new album, COPE, is available here.
