TBA 2010: The Thank-You Bar


News
Thursday, Sept. 16 at Imago Theater: "I AM SO LONELY," croons the woman laying flat on her back to the left of the audience. We're marooned in the middle of the Imago Theatre, perched on an island of chairs and cushions, surrounded by the insides of Emily Johnson's head. There are hand-scrawled signs labeling "MY AMP" and "MAKESHIFT SCREEN" tacked to objects around the room; a tangle of wires, ...   More

TBA 2010: In the Solitude of Cotton Fields


News
Let's not do that thing where we all pretend we're familiar with obscure absurdist French theater while slyly looking it up on Wikipedia: In the Solitude of Cotton Fields (or Dans la solitude des champs de coton if you really want to impress people at a cocktail party) is a one-act play by the late Bernard-Marie Koltès, in which two characters, the Dealer and the Client, meet in the dead ...   More

TBA 2010: Romeo and Juliet, just as you sorta remember it, kinda


News
This is the shtick (and pay attention if you plan on seeing the show, because it won't make one scratch of sense otherwise): New York's Nature Theater of Oklahoma founders Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska called up friends and family members, asked them to recall the story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and turned their responses, word-for-word—“uhm”s, “ah”s, “shit”s ...   More

TBA 2010: Flooding With Love for the Kid


News
Monday, Sept. 13, Whitsell Auditorium: Flooding with Love for the Kid is a big screen adaptation of First Blood (that's the 1972 David Morell novel, in which Rambo is an asshole and dies in the end, not the 1982 film bastardization in which Sylvester Stallone is a hero and lives on for three sequels), filmed, acted, produced and edited entirely by one man in his apartment for $95.51. It's ...   More

TBA 2010: The People's Biennial


News
Sunday, Sept. 12 at The Works at Washington High School: Sometimes in the art world, a duet becomes a duel. Such has often been the case between the forces of elitism and the voices for populism in modern and contemporary art. Do you need a Master's of Fine Art degree from a prestigious art school such as Yale or Pratt to deserve art stardom, or do good intentions count for something, too? ...   More

TBA 2010: The Extreme Animals Sit Down.


News
Friday, Sept. 10 at the Works: The Extreme Animals will, as advertised, sit down, but not before frontman Jacob Ciocci, standing, pacing, explains what will happen: "First thing that's gonna happen is I'm gonna tell you what's gonna happen," he says, before launching into a short YouTube-assisted monologue pitched somewhere between David Cross (but not as bitter) and Steven Wright (but more ...   More

TBA 2010: Charles Atlas/William Basinski


News
Friday, Sept. 10 at the Works: I have not been inside of a high school since I dropped out of one 15 years ago, and as I mount the steps of Washington High tonight, I remember why I fled and stayed away: The sight of the unmistakably educational corridor awaiting me at the top of the stairs fills me with sick dread and fluttery angst. Okay, so PICA has turned this old prison into an adult playground ...   More

TBA 2010: Japanther vs. Night Shade at the Works


News
10 pm Thursday, Sept. 9 at the Works at Washington High School "I can't see your faces but I can feel your energy!" Love was in the air last night for the eighth annual TBA Festival's kickoff battle jam: frenzied Brooklyn fun-punks Japanther faced off against local shadow-puppeteers Night Shade for an adventure worthy, in all of its sweetness and sweat, of the hallowed halls of Washington ...   More
