Andy Eppler @ 300 Suns Brewing
Dec 16 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Andy Eppler @ 300 Suns Brewing | Longmont | Colorado | United States

Born in Lubbock, Texas, in 1985 and raised by scholars in churches, Andy Eppler has always had a respect for the tradition of both southern wisdom and skepticism. He has become known for addressing high-minded topics such as humanity’s place in the universe, the role of authority, atheism, and community in his various art projects. Deemed “the future of Lubbock Music” at the Lubbock Centennial Celebration Opening Ceremony in 2008, Mr. Eppler is best known as a songwriter. He has written, recorded, and produced four solo albums of his original music, eight original albums with his wife as their band “The Prairie Scholars”, and one audio collection of his poems and short stories. Mr. Eppler has also recorded and produced five albums of solo material by his partner and bride Jessica Eppler. His work was featured and compared to that of Mac Davis, Terry Allen, and Butch Hancock in volume eight of Journal of the Society for American Music published by Cambridge University Press in 2014.

Though Mr. Eppler spends a lot of energy and time on recording albums and playing live shows with The Prairie Scholars, he also voraciously explores other art mediums. In 2014 he released a book titled “New Reason New Way: how my skepticism changed my art” which was about his life, art philosophy, and the functionality of creativity in the brain. In his new home of Boulder County Colorado, he has made time to create and sell dozens of psychedelically themed paintings in a large connected series called the “Yes Voice”. He is also the co-host of one of Boulder County’s most popular podcasts “The Prairie Scholars Podcast” which showcases long form interviews with local artists and community leaders. Today, he continues to push the boundaries of what an artist can be in the modern context by spending his extra time working locally in his community.

This exhibition highlights current research by scientists from the American Museum of Natural History and other leading paleontologists around the world. Visitors will see real bones from a T-Rex found in Littleton and a soil sample of the K-T boundary, which shows the point in time 65 million years ago when the asteroid that caused mass extinction of the dinosaurs hit the Earth. Kids can get their hands dirty excavating bones in our dinosaur dig pit and feed our brood of chickens – the feathered, living descendants of dinosaurs!

For the past 15 years they have made babies and ballads, playing with the likes of Chris Staples, Spoken Nerd, The Forecast, Into It/Over It, Jared Bartman, The Blackbird Revue and Jared Grabb. After relocating from Illinois to Colorado, Bob & Marie are looking forward to making you laugh and sing again.
