Visual Art Bands.

November 18, 2008

I’m going to start a band. A band of artists, you know the visual ones. I mean, if there can be a band of musicians, why not visual artists? We will be “playing” at venues anywhere between New York and London. (Thats right Atlantic Ocean, we hate you.) There will be a band of writers opening for us, mostly authors of encyclopedias and those “For Dummies” books. Hate us or love us, we’ll get a crowd, and if we are lucky they will throw their left over fruit at us, because after all, we are starving artists.

    I think Bassnectar does this. If I remember correctly, he has an artist paint a large painting while Bassnectar is DJ’ing. And then it’s displayed somewhere.

    So each concert is unique and has its own painting, which captures the mood of the gig.

    Correction: It’s not Bassnectar, it’s Sound Tribe Sector 9. They have two visual artists capture the show.

    STS9 + art makes more sense anyway.
