Other Cinema: SONIC ODDITIES (INCREDIBLY STRANGE MUSIC)

Saturday, April 15, 2017, 8:30 pm, $7

An *expanded* version of the 16mm show that sold out the Roxie a couple months ago, this cult-music compilation–-in addition to that mountain of sublimely ridiculous performance—in fact doubles down on its fanboy gambit, topping it with 3 sonic circus rings of particular interest: Mid-Century Anomalies, Black Music of the ‘70s, and Experimental Turntablsm. And amongst all the sideshows, the Retro, the Camp, there’s still some hearty Avant-Garde—Sun Ra, Harry Partch, a 24-year-old Michael Tilson Thomas on prepared piano! AND Marie Osmond reciting Schwitters, George Clinton hailing the Mothership, the Dead Boys at CBGB’s!! PLUS Spike Jones, Liberace, Tiny Tim, Village People, Heino, Cpt. Beefheart, the Residents, Christian Marclay, GG Allin, Hawaiian exotica, Soundies, Scopitones, tons more…and beer for a buck!
