Two shows you must attend (if you’re in Marfa or LA)

12 Jan 2012

Cass McCombs performing his latest single, “Bradley Manning,” on Democracy Now!

First, Cass McCombs is returning to Marfa tomorrow night, and all Marfans, and all visitors in town, must attend. We’re huge fans of Cass, and we were lucky enough to have him play here last July. Presented by our great friends at Marfa Book Company, the show starts at 9 pm at Padre’s.

Second, our favorite art photographer, Fredrik Nilsen, who’s taken the photos for all of our recent visual arts exhibitions, happens to also be a member of the LA art and music collective, The Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS). This Saturday, The Box kicks off their new exhibition, Beneath the Valley of the Lowest Form of Music: The Los Angeles Free Music Society ‘1972-2012,’ which presents a history of the collective, with nearly 40 years of LAFMS artwork, self-made musical instruments, recordings, ephemera, film/video, and installations. Opening reception this Saturday, from 6-9 pm, in the Box’s new space at 805 Traction Avenue in Los Angeles.
