The esteemed Gainesville string band, Pine, will be playing in the Hipp Cinema on Sunday, April 29. Doors at 5:30, music starts at 6:30 p.m.
Pine will play two intimate sets of live music, with an intermission for time for refreshments at the bar.
A little about Pine: Liberty Phoenix and Dan Stepp came together to create a folky sound with intimate harmonies that are supported with a beautifully talented string band. They have been lucky enough to add on Brian Turk on Stand Up Bass, Andrew Cook on Violin and Mark Archer on Dobro.

Sherrie Pettigrew will be featured at the Hippodrome Art Gallery for March’s Artwalk Gainesville! Come by the Hipp during your jaunt around downtown. Sip some wine and see her collection Friday, March 30 from 7 – 10 p.m.
Pettigrew is a Florida artist who composes her drawings based on the people and objects around her in everyday life. Graphite powder and pencil are her primary materials, and she sometimes incorporates paint, pastel chalk and found objects.
“These images come to me in the shower, theater, market, and street complete with smells, sounds, and visions seldom shared until they are actualized,” Pettigrew said.
Pettigrew admires artists Chuck Close, Joan Miro and Cy Twombly, and they inspire her artistic style. She describes her collection as an evolution from hyperrealism to psychological surrealism.
“I come from honesty in my approach, making work that isn’t always pretty,” Pettigrew said. “These pieces are about emotion, often without cognitive consideration: recording reality with a twist and my own hypersensitive view.”
Come to the Hipp to belt out your favorite songs with us — we’re bringing karaoke back to the Lower Level on Friday, March 23!
Have fun with your friends at the Hipp during this FREE event. If you’re fearless, you can head right up to belt out your favorite lyrics. For everyone else, we’ll keep our bartender pouring drinks if you need a dose of liquid courage.
It’s time to mark your calendars, Gainesville. Our doors will be open at 7:30 p.m., and you can sing Madonna and Prince all the way until midnight.
