Found sounds, improvised film screenings, hip-hop, electronic, folk and rock music — and possibly the last time to see one of the most vibrant local rock bands of the decade — Lee Marvin Computer Arm, who will be playing live with The Sisters Lucas (pictured), Tyvek, Darkred, EsQuire, T3, The Go, Deastro, The Silent Years, DJ Frankie Bank$ and Bad Party.
Tickets are $75 for a 7:30 p.m. entrance or $15 for a 9:30 p.m. entrance. The VIP ticket receives dinner catered from local restaurants, valet and an open bar, while enjoying the collaborative performance of self-taught filmmaker Martha Colburn (NY) utilizing found footage and handmade filters with the soundtrack of the improvised “deconstructed songs and digital manipulations” of Detroit’s Ian Clark. At 9:30 p.m., the bands play individually selected and stylized pop-song covers from the last 30 years.
Either way, you really can't go wrong, but if you really do have the dough, get there early — you will not be disappointed.
Martha Colburn: "During her performance, she will combine hand made filters, excerpts from her animations and found footage, to create a screening that incorporates colonial history, natural disaster films and her own animations into a light/ picture show."
Ian Clark: "He will be performing a live soundtrack to the projections of Martha Colburn utilizing found sounds, deconstructed songs and digital manipulations."
