Transmission Presents: Computer World (A tribute to Kraftwerk & the synthesizer)

The Varsity Theater : 10:00 p.m. last Wed. of every month

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into. Usually you've got to find yourself an era and a genre, hew towards the hits, and maybe garnish it with an outsized wink, a double-pistol-point and a smirking acknowledgement that you think the past is, well, kinda goofy. But Transmission... More >>

Walker Art Center : Every Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat., Sun. until March 8

It was a heady time of happenings: the dawn of performance art, a stripping way to conceptualism, the onset of video, an introduction to experimental sound.
