In the Ballroom Marfa Courtyard, Marfa, Texas

Mary Lattimore and Julianna Barwick return to Marfa to fill the Ballroom courtyard with their mysterious and cosmic tones at sunset on Tuesday, July 17. Beer will be free but bring your own blankets, picnic supplies and positive energy to this communal bliss out. The show is free and open to the public with suggested donation of $10. All proceeds from donations and poster sales will benefit Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center.

Using a combination of harp and looping effects, Lattimore plays half-structured improvisations which can include both ambient glitter and unsettling noise. Her performance at the Wrong Store at the 2016 Marfa Myths festival was among the highlights of the weekend. Lattimore’s most recent album Hundreds of Days opens with a song Pitchfork describes as “being placed in some alien terrarium” and “proof she has the skill to build new landscapes with her instruments.”

Barwick, also known for her mesmerizing looping effects, uses a combination of synthesizers, keyboards, and voice to capture audiences far and wide with a sound that has been described by the New York Times at “churchly and vaguely Renaissance, but also very now.”

Las Americas is an El Paso based non-profit dedicated to servicing the legal needs of low income immigrants, including refugees and asylum seekers, victims of crime, and families seeking reunification. Las Americas has reportedly provided legal care to over 12,000 low income immigrant residents in the El Paso area, but is quick to note that these clients are coming from all over the world, because El Paso is one of the highest ports of entry for the entire United States.

    Mary Lattimore and Julianna Barwick performance is made in part by the generous support of National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, the Ballroom Marfa Board of Trustees and Ballroom Marfa members.
