Seventy miles north of Phoenix, in Central Arizona, elevated more than 3,000 feet is Arcosanti, an urban laboratory developed by famed architect Paolo Soleri. The area, a product of a concept called arcology, was designed to show that urban conditions can be enriched with little destruction to earth. Arcosanti brings in thousands of people annually who are intrigued by its focus on community, environmental accountability and design.

The space provides public areas and buildings where people can live, work, play and visit. Between May 23 and May 25, it will serve as the backdrop for the Hundred Waters album-release festival. Yes, a Memorial Day weekend festival of music to celebrate the debut of the band’s sophmore album, The Moon Rang Like a Bell, due May 27 on OWSLA (now available for pre-order on iTunes).
