Have you ever sat slumped at your miserable computer at your excruciating job, staring blankly at an Excel spreadsheet that mocks your very existence but really secretly hoping that a heavy metal band would come and whisk you away to a magical land of booze and Satan? Sure, we all have.
Programmed by George Chen, L@TE: Friday Nights @ BAM/PFA is a three-part summer series is sponsored by Amoeba Music.
The series kicks-off on Friday, August 5th:
C. Spencer Yeh / David Horvitz
Friday, August 5, 2011
Doors 5:00 PM / DJ (Matt Thompson) / Performance 7:30 PM
Tickets available at the door - $7
Join us for an evening of sonic exploration and social engagement with artists C. Spencer Yeh and David Horvitz. Brooklyn-based Yeh (who also performs under the long-running identity Burning Star Core) is a solo artist and improviser who uses violin, voice, and electronics. He has collaborated with Tony Conrad, New Humans with Vito Acconci, Thurston Moore, and Jandek among many others. Yeh will be performing solo improvisations on violin and voice utilizing the open space of BAM/PFA’s Gallery B. Horvitz, also based in Brooklyn, is a photographer and performance artist whose activities include the 241543903 project, A Wikipedia Reader, and guided food tours. In the prankster tradition, he stages surprising interactions that replicate the online experience. His absurdist social-practice approach to art making will take full advantage of BAM/PFA and the L@TE audience.
