Tonight is the third night of Wrong Wave, and one a lot of people have been looking forward to. On Thursday, the film Hail the New Puritan at Pacific Cinematheque served as a kind of keynote: dance by Michael Clark, costumes by Leigh Bowery, and music by The Fall combined to form a portrait of a post-punk demi-monde in which, as Jonathan Wells said before the screening, “a floating death’s-head” hovered, invisible but still felt, in the background. Last night, Stack of Moves at the Western Front attracted a huge group of dancers for a wild collage of music preceded by a set of lessons — thanks to Jen Weih and and Justine Chambers — that proposed a new set of relationships between music, space, and bodies.
So we come to tonight: music and performance, not unlike some other nights from the Pitt’s long history. We’re pleased to present orphans and dogs, a new musical project by Elizabeth Fischer, a set by Mark Szabo, formerly of Good Horsey (among other things!), performance and installation by Yuriko Iga, and music by New Moon Poncho Deejays (“Selecting the World’s Most Feminist Music since 2008”). Doors open at 8 pm, $5.
Today before 5 is also your last chance to see God Save The Queen.
