ESCAPE-ISM

Jul 27 | Sat | 8PM | $12 and up
View Website

21 and over ESCAPE-ISM is a found-sound dream-drama starring Ian Svenonius, singer (Chain & the Gang, The Make-Up, Weird War, etc), author ('The Psychic Soviet,' 'Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group,' 'Censorship Now!!'), talk show host (Soft Focus), experimental filmmaker ('Launching of the Dream Weapon,' 'What is a Group?,' 'The Seduction of Paolo Hewitt'), and public speaker. ESCAPE-ISM is "live collage" with a beat box, a ritual offering to the fractured landscape of AM radio. It features original performances of songs, game-time sportcasts, eyein-the-sky traffic reports, doppler radar weather forecasts, live interviews, sermons, world news and opinion, guest appearances, electric guitars, drum machine, electromagnetic tapes, fuzz box, sickening sounds, and stolen samples. Critics have been unanimous in saying "I didn't see anything; I mind my own business. Listen, I don't want any trouble."
