Screaming Females, Priests, and Greg Fox’s Guardian Alien are set to play are playing an unusual show in NYC — at a movie theater in Times Square. Presented by Times Square Arts and Clocktower Productionsand the good folks at The Clocktower Gallery, this multimedia event is titled “Primal Screams” and happens at AMC Empire in Times Square on March 15, where their performances will be paired with experimental videos on the theater’s screen, making event unlike any other previous show these bands have played. More details:

Screaming Females has collaborated with video artist Faye Orlove for a mischievous animation, signature to Orlove’s style while specially crafted to match the band’s powerful sound. Guardian Alien’s video selection includes footage of their epic trip to Antarctica, with serene long shots of blue glaciers and congregations of penguins. Priests presents a dreamy sequence of bedroom scenes, staged from props found around thrift stores in their hometown of Washington DC.

The show is free but tickets have all been claimed, though you can join the waitlist — organizers say there will likely be additional spots. Screaming Females discuss the event on The Clocktower Gallery’s podcast and you can listen to that below.

Priests, who recently played Brooklyn with Protomartyr, also have two NYC shows coming up this summer during their tour with Ought, where they’ll play Silent Barn on May 7 with Florist and Rough Trade on May 8 with Palberta. The Silent Barn show is sold out, but tickets for their Rough Trade show are still on sale.
