Like they have before, Sacred Bones and The Empty Bottle celebrated Mort Garson's cult classic 1976 electronic album Mother Earth’s Plantasia, music written and recorded specifically for houseplants ("and the people that love them"), with a special event at Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory on Thursday (9/23). The multi-sensory experience featured interpretations of Plantasia songs by a variety of musicians, including Mary Lattimore, Ben LaMar Gay, Sam Prekop, Claire Rousay, Jordan Reyes, Fetter, Alex Barnett, Beau Wanzer, Green-House, and Forest Management.
