We welcome Arto Lindsay, who has long stood at the intersection of music and art, collaborating with artists such as Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, and Caetano Veloso. As a member of DNA, he played a significant role in the foundation of the no wave genre in late 1970s in New York City, along with artists like Suicide and Glenn Branca. As leader of the Ambitious Lovers, he pioneered a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles. Current band members include Melvin Gibbs (Rollins Band), Kassa Overall, Paul Wilson, and Patrick Higgins.

The band Beauty Pill from Washington, D.C., is led by singer/guitarist/producer Chad Clark. The group’s acclaimed last release Beauty Pill Describes Things as They Are highlights its lush arrangements and earned it a spot on NPR’s 50 best records of 2015.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
