Please join us as we welcome Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks to the Ballroom Marfa courtyard for a free performance on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 8pm.

Slasher Flicks is comprised of Avey Tare, Angel Deradoorian and Jeremy Hyman, names you may recognize from Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors and Ponytail, respectively. Their new album, Enter the Slasher House, was originally composed by Tare on acoustic guitar, then fleshed out with Deradoorian’s lysergic keyboards and Hyman’s spattering drums. Attentive listeners may detect distinctive signatures of each members’ previous affiliations, but the Slasher Flicks sound is a world unto itself.

Enter the Slasher House is available on Domino on April 8. It’s currently streaming with Abby Portner’s pleasantly overwhelming album-length video of damaged VHS cartoon and horror movie imagery. Click here to watch.
