In ExtraSensory perception


Where in the world--or in Raleigh for that matter--can you find fabulous artsy types and an array of artists performing the night away? The 8,000 square foot Myooseum of course (pronounced "museum"). We didn't expect you to know that, but that's why The Independent is here: to tell you about events like The Cypher: FathomFlow, put on by the Raleigh-based ExtraSensory Group. The Cypher is a festival that "seeks to stimulate creativity," according to the group. It features spoken word poetry, live drum and jazz performances, DJs spinning to their hearts' content and visual arts such as paintings, dance, photographs and fashion design. Not only is there a lot to see, you can have your go at the open mic, interactive art and dance classes to boot. The lineup of artists is still being finalized, but past performers include the Mark Wells Trio, DJs Kool Sheed and Bro Rabb, and YahZarah, a background singer for Erykah Badu. Creative vendors will also be on hand to satisfy your shopping needs. Come check it out on Friday, March 14, at the ExtraSensory Group's new venue in downtown Raleigh: 319 W. Martin St. (on the corner of Martin Street and Commerce Place). Admission is $10 or $7 with a non-perishable food item and doors open at 8 p.m. Visit for more information or call the ExtraSensory Group at 274-7460. --Martina Navratil
