¡TEENAGE WASTELAND!

SAT 4/11 (free!)

Tisch Abelow (NYC) and Wesley Fawcett Creigh (Tucson) pay a surreal homage to their teenage years with an experimental documentary film comprised of footage taken 12 years earlier during their senior year of high school. In the fall of 2013, Tisch revisited this footage and pared it down into a short film, mostly starring Wesley’s father, which she calls, “a musing on the mundane.” In addition, there will be a collaborative 2-D artwork spanning the course of their friendship reflecting on the nihilistic and absurd tendencies of youth. Please join us as we “come of age” with cake and local DJ’s.

Violins and Noise in the Magical Kingdom of Dust

Jeff Young

Tucson violinist Robert Anthony Villa will play the 2nd and 3rd movements from Ysaÿe’s Violin Sonata No. 2, followed by improvisation using themes by Ysaÿe or whatever he damn well feels like.

Jeff Young is a violinist, composer, and laptop musician based in Brooklyn, NY. He’ll perform a quirky selection of his own music for solo violin and live electronics under the heading Jeffrey Young’s Magical Kingdom of Dust, including in-your-face theatrics, unabashed shredding, and oceanic soundscapes. He’ll also play a short piece for speaking violinist and retuned violin by Paul Pinto, a fellow member of New York’s thingNY composer-performer collective.

EASTER SCREEECHHHH : Rock My Religion + The Myrrors

Dan Graham’s Rock My Religion (1982–84) is a video essay populated with both punk/rock performers (Patti Smith, Jim Morrison, Black Flag and Glenn Branca) and historical figures (including Ann Lee, founder of The Shakers). This fusion of voice-over, singing, shouting, jarring sounds & text overlaid onto shaky, gritty images proposes a historical genealogy of rock music and an ambitious thesis on the origins of America. Tucson’s psych prophets The Myrrors initiate the evening’s sonic resurrection as only they can!

Man With A Movie Camera with live musical score by Jimmy Carr!

Jimmy Carr & friends present a live score to Dziga Vertov’s masterwork Man With A Movie Camera. Recently voted the most important non-fiction film ever made by Sight & Sound Magazine, Man With A Movie Camera shows 24 hours in a single day of a Russian city. It took Vertov four years to film this day, and he worked in three cities: Moscow, Kiev and Odessa. His wife Yelizaveta Svilova supervised the editing from about 1,775 separate shots and the cinematography was by his brother, Mikhail Kaufman. Vertov felt film was locked into the tradition of stage plays, and it was time to discover a new style that was specifically cinematic-movies should move with the speed of our minds when one is free-associating, or with the speed of a passionate musical composition. Multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire Jimmy Carr brings his captivating musical machine-age musings to the live scoring of this endlessly fascinating film!

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer & Katterwaul !!!

On Feb. 21, 2012, members of the feminist art collective Pussy Riot, donning their colorful trademark balaclavas, participated in a 40-second “punk prayer protest” on the altar of Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral before being detained. Arrested and tried for trespassing, wearing “inappropriate” sleeveless dresses and disrupting social order, Nadia, Masha and Katia were accused of religious hatred in a trial that reverberated around the world and transformed the face of Russian society. Filmed over the course of six months by directors Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin, PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER highlights the forces that transformed these women from playful political activists to modern-day icons, exposing the state of Russian justice in the modern era. Opening the show, and keeping the riot real, is Brittany Katter’s fierce & uncompromising band, Katterwaul!

Blood Red Thanksgiving: SUSPERIA !!! Dario Argento’s Susperia with a live performance soundtrack by Eric Schlappi

Eric Schlappi will be presenting a live tribute to Goblin by covering and interpreting their original soundtrack to Suspiria with a full band of acoustic and electric instruments, analogue synthesizers and WITCHES. Tonight re-experience Susperia, the landmark horror fantasy from cult director Dario Argento- dubbed the Italian Hitchcock for his mastery of suspense. Jessica Harper plays a dancer at a German ballet school where witches prowl the corridors. The famous opening 20 minutes of this Snow White fairy tale (by way of Thomas De Quincey’s hallucinatory Confessions of an Opium Eater) are an unforgettable experience, and the whole film is a stunning combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, dazzling colours, gory violence, lush décor and pounding live remixing of the Goblin soundtrack.
