How To Listen To Music: Angus McMahan

Why do you like one song more than another? Hear some of the tricks of the musician's trade and how they make songs better. Knowing some of what's going on 'under the hood' does not take away from the magic of your favorite songs - in fact it makes them even better! Angus, armed with his mighty playlist of song samples, will take you on an fun-filled audio tour of your favorite music. No musical experience required at all - just a working ear or two!

Against an Unjust King: Celtic Magics for Justice, Morpheus Ravenna

Celtic traditions center sovereignty and the rituals of kingship, but they also contain many tales of the magics by which an unjust ruler might be brought low. From the deadly poetry of satire, to the wounding spells of the druidic corrguinecht, the harrowing scream of a woman that carried a curse against the men who wronged her, and the spiritual retribution of the hunger strike, this workshop will explore methods of magical redress against oppression and injustice. This workshop is discussion-oriented rather than practical.

Jason-Mankey.jpg

Led Zeppelin and the Occult: Jason Mankey

For decades people have whispered about the rock band Led Zeppelin selling their souls to Old Scratch in exchange for multi-platinum success. While this accusation (probably) isn't true, the music and imagery of Led Zeppelin is full of occult references, if you know where to look. This presentation is full of rock and roll, hedgerows, lemon squeezing, and journeys to exotic places like Kashmir and the Misty Mountains. It's Zeppelin like you've never heard and seen them before.
