Mild High Club founder Alexander Brettin grew up playing flute in the school band and majoring in jazz studies in Chicago. In 2012, a visit to Los Angeles allowed him to connect with the Stones Throw crew. Within a year, after passing the early demos of what would become Timeline onto Peanut Butter Wolf, Brettin made the move out west. In investigating the spirit of American music, Mild High Club re-imagine AM radio hits as blasting in from a parallel universe, the sound of early 70s LA in a smog of sativa.

Experience classic films with live orchestral accompaniment in the spectacular surroundings of the Shanghai Oriental Art Center. A score played live by a full orchestra is probably the closest you will ever get to feeling like part of the film. The English Patient is a 1996 American romantic war drama film directed by Anthony Minghella from his own script based on the novel of the same name by Michael Ondaatje and produced by Saul Zaentz. The film tells the story of Count László de Almásy, who is burned from a plane crash and tells his past story in flashbacks involving a romantic affair, while he is tended by a nurse.

Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman) was Richard Wagner’s fourth full-length opera and his first considered masterpiece. And it’s fitting that the opera that helped to cement the controversial composer’s legacy deals with a familiar maritime tale-the legend of the Flying Dutchman. Wagner’s version retells the haunting story of an undead ship captain doomed to an endless journey across the seas. His wandering will not cease until he can find and keep a faithful and true love — an accomplishment put even further out of reach, considering he can only come ashore once every seven years.
