Sunshine Jones – Live Ground Tour 2016
OMAHA, Nebraska

When you’ve been on the road since March 19th, and it’s June 6th, and you’re out here looking backwards through these endless plains, rolling and beautiful pastures and prairies and you’ve looked into the eyes of sweet, loving, amazing people who want to dance, and cheer, and talk, and share, and love… things begin to take a different shape. Relationships, and ideas are shifted in the light, as if through a prism, and the artifacts and reflections begin to dance, and play with the world as my old ideas start so slip away.

My guard goes down, and my heart opens, and things are not what they seemed before. They are better now. More honest, and more hopeful. Free.

This is the document, as best it could be expressed, of the stop in Council Bluffs/Omaha
The film is by Martha Traer for MT Films
The music is recorded live, by Sunshine Jones

  20. Très Johnson:

    i took all the energy that i was feeling after this weekend and let that inspire me on this work of art. i thought about how awesome it was that Brent Crampton, House of Loom opened their space to us, and collaborated to make this happen. i thought about how Angela Spence was looking for us, just like were looking for her. i thought about Brandon Godwin flying up to share in the experience. i thought about you talking to me about HOME. i thought about Martha Traer documenting everything along the way. i thought about you singing my favorite dubtribe song in Drips. i thought about all of the LOVE in the rooms. as i was thinking about it all, and letting it consume me, so that i could get over some other shit. it all came to me. the take away from the weekend. (fall in love, not in line)

  21. Angela Spence:

    Yes! To all of it. I think we are all in a better place after that magical weekend ♥ We all needed each other
    Love this, Très! Let’s get together and dance soon!
