Part One: The Spongetones
The Spongetones are one of Charlotte’s best-known local bands. They’ve been around for over 30 years. Now, their fame appears to be spreading to -of all places – Japan. They’re about to do a series of shows there later this month. Before they leave, we’ll catch up with the band and hear some of their music.

Steve Stoeckel – Bass, vocals, guitar
Rob Thorne – Original drummer and percussionist
Pat Walters – Guitarist, vocalist and keyboard player

Part Two: “Group f.64” at The Light Factory
Join us for a conversation about the work of photographer Ansel Adams and his contemporaries. This group of artists was known as “Group f.64” for their modernist vision and style and includes Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Willard Van Dyke, and Brett Weston. Some of their work is on display now at The Light Factory.

– Chief Curator, The Light Factory

  3. The Spongetones are amazing! They’re my most favorite band in the world, and I have the shrine to prove it! I drive down from VA every chance I get. I have all of their CDs, and the early vinyls which I scored on eBay. Now collecting their Japanese CDs. These boys are the best…America’s Beatles!
