Join us at Artpace San Antonio, on Thursday, January 19, 2023, from 6–8pm for the Pre-release of Robert Leroy Hodge’s limited edition vinyl, “Between the Devil and the Deep.” Hodge is a multi-disciplinary artist who participated in Artpace’s International Artist-in-Residence program in 2017 and was featured in the 2021 Artpace presentation of “Slowed and Throwed: Records of the City through Mutated Lenses.” Slowed and Throwed, curated by the Contemporary Art Museum, Houston, was the first museum exhibition with a conceptual focus on the late Houston legend DJ Screw.

“Between the Devil and the Deep” was created as part of Hodge’s Artpace residency and is a musical journey based on the Crossroads mythology of legendary blues musician Robert Johnson. The record was recorded over Thanksgiving weekend in San Antonio’s Sheraton Gunter Hotel 80 years to-the-day in the same room where Robert Johnson recorded “Crossroad Blues” and “Ramblin’ on My Mind” in 1936.

During this event, Hodge will say a few words about the album and guests will be among the first to have the chance to purchase a copy of the signed album (limited quantities available).
