Past Event Sound Series: Adam Green’s Aladdin

A man holding a cartoonish axe and wearing a tall, black hat is sitting in front of an artwork made of up painted cartoonish eyes on a yellow background.

We welcome musician, artist, and filmmaker, Adam Green for a unique evening featuring a solo acoustic performance of songs from his second feature film Adam Green’s Aladdin, followed by a full screening of the film. Shot entirely on papier-mache sets designed by Green, this immersive fantasy film stars an eclectic cast including Macaulay Culkin, Natasha Lyonne, Alia Shawkat, Jack Dishel, and Francesco Clemente – with Green playing Aladdin. In Green’s take on this classic tale, the lamp is a 3-D printer, the Princess is a decadent socialite, the planet gets a sex-change, and its population prints out an analogue version of the Internet. Regarding the connectivity between his music, art and filmmaking, Green says “If you listen to my songs, you see they’re kind of cartoonish. I try to make songs like my paintings. When creating my movie, I approached the script like it was a song.” Green is perhaps most known as one-half of The Moldy Peaches (along with Kimya Dawson) who provided the soundtrack to the Academy Award-winning film Juno (2007).

Please note this performance contains adult subject matter and strong language.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
