MONTOPOLIS: THE LIVING COAST
September 18, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20
The Living Coast performance combines original music, live narration, and cinematic images of the Texas gulf coast. Surfers and sailors, shrimpers and oilmen, poets and scientists all share their stories about this complicated region of serene beauty, vast industry, and incredible contradictions.
The Living Coast film was produced by cinematographer Anlo Sepulveda and drone pilot Reagan Jobe.
Proceeds from this performance will be donated to the Matagorda Bay Foundation and the Citizen’s Environmental Coalition.
“A Montopolis show is like a night of beautiful chamber music, but with electric guitar and the twang of pedal steel giving a Texas kick to the keys and strings.” Texas Monthly
“A multimedia love letter to the Texas coast, with voices and images from the Gulf set to an original score” – NPR, The Texas Standard
“Montopolis can create forceful sounding songs that have a bit of rock ‘n roll snarl, but it is also capable of mournful classical sounding pieces and others that are mysterious and ambient. The group’s range of expression is striking…” – Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle
