The performance collaboration between The Warhol and Carnegie Museum of Art shifts outdoors for the summer with two special evenings of indie folk/pop music in the Carnegie Museum of Art's Sculpture Court, featuring Ladybug Transistor and Bill Callahan.
THURSDAY, JULY 7 LADYBUG TRANSISTOR
Since their debut album, Marlborough Farms, was released in 1995, The Ladybug Transistor have been creating lush, formalist pop music over sixteen years and six albums. On tour supporting their latest release, Clutching Stems on Merge Records, the group (which at one time featured Pittsburgh’s own dynamic musician siblings, Jennifer and Jeff Baron as founding members), makes its 2nd appearance as part of the Warhol’s Sound Series with a new line-up featuring Gary Olson (vocals), Kyle Forester (keyboards), Julia Rydholm (bass), Michael O'Neill (guitar), Eric Farber (drums) and Mark Dzula (guitar). The eclectic Pittsburgh-based group, Joy Toujours and the Toys du Jour, open the show.
FRIDAY, JULY 8 BILL CALLAHAN
After 16 years of performing under the alias Smog, Bill Callahan began releasing his albums under his own name in 2007.A Drag City Records stalwart, Callahan continues his maverick songwriting with his new release, Apocalypse, as a follow-up to his last album Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle, which became a fixture on top-10 lists of 2009, including 2nd best album in MOJO. With his signature baritone, the vivid imagery his lyrics and often stark overall tone, he has appealed to a diverse roster of artists who have recorded his songs, such as Gil Scott-Heron, Flaming Lips and Cat Power. The Austin-based trio, Hidden Ritual, opens the show.
Please note that this event does not take place at The Warhol, but The Carnegie Museum of Art's Sculpture Court.
