This Saturday will mark the return of this once-popular party after a remarkably long seven-year hiatus. And though its name refers to the kitchen, this epic art party is definitely not contained to one room at the Bedlam. Instead, it will be a sprawling, three-room celebration of music, art, spoken word, dance, and more. Bands set to perform include electro-rockers Apollo Cobra, gothic UZZA, hip-hoppers Ill Chemistry, experimentalists the Eclectic Ensemble, and musical storytellers Scoot-Em. Sha Cage and e.g. bailey will present thoughtful spoken-word pieces, Jon Reischl and Neil Johnston will create live visual art, and a handful of modern dance troupes, including Curio and Christopher Watson Dance, will also do their thing. Throw in some Butoh, film screenings (the werewolf-prevention videos sound very informative), trance poetry, and vinyl DJ sets, and Ricochet Kitchen may just have all their bases covered.
Sat., April 3, 8:30 p.m.-2 a.m., 2010
