| Night Kills The DayAiden * From Autumn To Ashes * I Am Ghost
THE NIGHT KILLS , Aiden and From Autum To Ashes
120 Central Avenue SW
Downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico | 505-764-0249
Date : Tuesday, July 24th
The New York-based four-piece NIGHT KILLS THE DAY released their full length debut THE STUDY OF MAN on April 10 via the NYC indie Score Records. Filled with highlights such as the anthemic first single “Dive,” the electro-pop “Rainbows in N.Y.C.” and the danceable “Enjoy The Ride” The Study of Man… has been impacting specialty radio.
Produced by Joe Blaney--noted for his engineering work with the Ramones and Keith Richards as well as his efforts on the Clash albums Combat Rock and This is Radio Clash--the album is garnering early critical praise:
“Scuttling out of the darkness comes The Study of Man…and the Developed Shadow, the debut album from the Big Apple’s Night Kills The Day. The driving ‘After Hours,’ which opens the set, is built around an incandescent series of arpeggios, a musical exercise for keyboard and guitar transformed by a propulsive rhythm and delicately shaded atmospheres. ‘Rainbows In N.Y.C.’ is an obvious homage to Depeche Mode and just as infectious as anything that band has written, while the equally memorable “Dive!” evokes New Model Army at their most anthemic. …the lyrics reach depths more familiar to the industrial world than the goth. No romancing death here—NKD’s dystopian visions dwell exclusively on an eternal internal battle, the struggle to make sense of life, and the war waged against our weak flesh to repress unwanted desires. Although religion is the set’s thematic focal point, it easily crosses denominational divides, resonating even with atheists in its quest to understand the negative impulses that drive us all. A stunning debut and a thoroughly haunting and evocative album.”
--Jo-Ann Greene, ALL MUSIC. COM, March 12, 2007
“Despite the obvious connections to The Cure or Bauhaus, Night Kills the Day stands apart. The four-piece have crafted a mature and layered experience that has a certain New York feel….The Study of Man… will haunt you even after you hit stop and move onto something else. It’s catchy, moody, melodic and overall engaging. From the atmospherics of guitarist Izzy Lugo, to the smooth rhythm section of bassist Timothy Falzone and drummer Roger Benton to the haunting voice of Luke Brian, Night Kills the Day is not a band that you will soon forget.”
--Chris Beaumont, BLOG CRITICS.ORG, March 2007

| Art Gallery Event-Downtown Abq
516 ARTS, a new museum-style gallery opening soon in Downtown Albuquerque, announces our first event – Sidewalk Vidi/Cine, the Pre-Opening Window Project presented in partnership with Basement Films & The Guild Cinema. Bring a chair and join us outdoors for an unusual multi-media arts experience.
To celebrate the opening of 516 ARTS, one of the state’s best independent gallery venues, Basement Films and The Guild Cinema will create a series of screenings visible from the street by projecting onto the 25 foot high front windows of 516 ARTS. Each Saturday night for six weeks, the group will present what Basement Films calls “a multi-projector extravaganza of retinal stimulation that will haunt your dreams and alter your reality.”
The program is led by Keif Henley, founder of Basement Films and co-owner of The Guild Cinema, with collaborators Bryan Konefsky, Sarah Wentzel-Fisher, and Elena Agustin. Events will include Cinemus Publicus, an open screen for local film & video, as well as locally produced live soundtracks with short films from Basement Films’ eclectic collection. Films and videos range from classic silent films to new work by local artists.
On three nights, every other week --— September 16, September 30, and October 14 — the screenings will be accompanied by live music in the entryway of 516 ARTS. Musical guests include Zack Freeman, Incus Arts, Ken Cornell/Alchemical Burn, Blake Minnerly, A Black Lux, and Daddy Long Loin. Schedule and more information about performers coming soon.
Central Avenue will be closed to traffic starting at 8:00pm. Parking available in the pay lot at 6th and Central, in the City’s pay lot at 5th & Copper, and on side streets.

ABOUT BASEMENT FILMS
Basement Films is a nonprofit, volunteer run micro-cinema supporting experimental, independent, and other under-represented forms of film and video making. The membership is made up of artists, activists, media makers, and "film buffs." Basement Films provides a forum for voices not heard in mainstream media. Since 1991, Basement Films has projected unique, moving image works by artists from around the world.
Basement Films serves as a resource for artists, filmmakers, and students interested in exploring new and experimental approaches to moving image art. In this regard, Basement Films facilitates filmmaking workshops at a variety of educational institutions including the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque Academy, and Highlands University. At these workshops Basement Films work to empower students by encouraging their cinematic voice and sense of personal representation. Basement Films also hosts a high school internship program to expose younger students to the possibilities of alternative voices in a media saturated world.
Basement Films’ resources include projection equipment and an archive of more than 7,000, 16mm, industrial and educational films, which are available for use by artists, filmmakers, and the community. The archive consists of films from the 1950's to 1970's which were used to socialize students, train employees, or bring a view of the world to community centers. These films are often referred to as "ephemeral" in that they were made with extremely low budgets and were often thought of as disposable. However, only recently are these films being saved and recognized for their rich historic value.

Sidewalk Vidi/Cine is co-sponsored by The Guild Cinema, Albuquerque’s only independently owned, single screen movie theatre, established in 1966. Located on Central in Nob Hill. For more information, visit [Welcome to Albuquerque's GUILD CINEMA]
