Some bands have all the luck. Some bands get to play floating wooden rafts, adrfit on the tempestuous Mississippi. Some bands get to perform out of the back of cargo vans at a half dozen venues in a single night. Some bands get to busk outside First Avenue to people on line to get into the Doomtree Blowout.
And some bands, like Gay Witch Abortion, get to do it all.
Gay Witch Abortion live at the Triple Rock Social Club.
Tonight, as part of the Nonconsensual Dada Constructivist Cerebral Warts Exhibition (quite the mouthful), Gay Witch Abortion will be performing from within a small room, in which no spectator will be allowed. Attendees will, instead, watch them on sets of CCTV monitors placed around the gallery.
It's just another in Gay Witch Abortion's lengthening resume of off-beat shows (see the previous catalog), and a cap feather for the exhibition, which, during its run from October 22 to the 25th, will features performances by Grant Hart and the Melvins. Not to be missed.
21+. 6:00 P.M. $6.00. Soo Visual Arts Center, 2640 Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis; 612.871.2263.
