Outliers

This is going to be an insanely special night. I'll send a reminder closer to the evening.

This past October, Chicago film collective Scenic traveled to the Icelandic countryside alongside photographers Tim Navis + Kim Holtermand and music composer Deru to create a series of improvised, collaborative short films. The resulting documentary - entitled Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland - will be released in June, along with a companion soundtrack compilation featuring thirteen contemporary classical composers and electronic music producers.

To celebrate the release, Scenic will join Deru onstage for a live, multimedia A/V performance inspired by the journey. Soundtrack contributors Shigeto (Ghostly International), Loscil (Kranky), and Sweatson Klank (Alphapup) will perform full sets, and the first 200 ticketholders are invited to an exclusive live screening of the film and Q&A session with the artists in advance of the show. Both the film screening and live performances are set for July 10th at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. Click here to buy tickets click here.

Born Under a Bad Sign by Neckface

If you are at all a fan of or even just aware of the work of Neckface, this video will make you laugh really hard. Screw it, even if you don't know Neckface you will probably laugh. This promises to be interesting if nothing else. A world renown vandal makes a kung fu movie?! How can that be bad. It's called Born Under a Bad Sign.

On a side note, did you know there is an artsy work for bathroom graffiti? It's Latrinalia. Thanks Neckface's wiki page!
