New Frequencies can be felt right here in Charlotte.
Film buffs rejoice: The McColl Center is streaming short films by Pat O’Neill this Friday. It’s the final installment of the New Frequencies series, which is a set of cutting-edge film and music shows from acclaimed international artists.
You are invited and parking is free!
I recently attended the screening of short films by Janie Geiser, which were beautifully scored and visually arresting little pieces of animation.

New Frequencies promises to end things with a bang of color and visuals that you won’t see anywhere else. Since O’Neill was a special effects consultant and technician on the “Star Wars” movies, you can bet he’ll deliver.
Tickets are only $5, and I highly recommend getting one in advance as it might sell out like their previous events.
The people putting this series on are verifiably cool dudes as well.
– The great film encyclopedia and part-time Steve Brule look-alike Ross Wilbanks.
– Local author and culture connoisseur Jeff Jackson.
– Brent Bagwell, jazz aficionado and one half of Ghost Trees.
Charlotte is made better having these kinds of folks to call its own. Establishing a landing pad as well as support for such events can help keep the arts alive.
McColl Center quick facts
If you’ve never been, the McColl Center for Art + Innovation is the beautiful neo-Gothic stone structure on North Tryon Street uptown.
It’s a special location that’s perfect for artistic expression. They are all about connecting art and artists to the community.
Come on out and see the films, have some drinks and check out the galleries. Culture awaits!
