The Range, Casey Dienel, Pictureplane & more playing ‘Visuals Visuals’ residency
Le Poisson Rouge is presenting the VISUALS VISUALS Video Art + Music Residency at Maspeth, Queens space Knockdown Center for four consecutive Fridays in June, starting this week (6/9). Each night includes Andrew Fox (aka Visuals), who co-curated it with LPR music director Rachael Pazdan (creator of The Hum), and he'll be joined by both musicians and video artists. Here's what the lineup looks like:
June 9 is headlined by electronic musician The Range, whose fresh off playing NYC's Governors Ball and whose Potential was one of our favorite albums of last year. The night's also got former Darkside member Dave Harrington playing a set featuring Antibalas trumpeter Jordan McLean and Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase, plus visuals and projections by Wild Dogs (tickets).
June 16 has chillwave/vaporwave/lo-fi pop maker George Clanton, the industrial-tinged Pictureplane, and Nicky Sparkles (who's on Nicolas Jaar's Other People label), with projections by Kathryn Chadason (tickets).
June 23 has a secret headliner TBA, plus drummer Ian Chang and projections by Christian Hannon (tickets).
Finally, June 30 is headlined by Computer Magic and also features Casey Dienel, who you may also know as White Hinterland but who is back to recording under her own name. Earlier this year, she released Imitation of a Woman to Love, which you can stream below. (She was also in the news last year when she filed a lawsuit against against Justin Bieber for ripping off White Hinterland's "Ring The Bell" on "Sorry.") This show also has projections by Spencer Bewley (tickets).
